SMITHSBURG -- A Smithsburg family that includes two children born with a rare genetic disorder received some help Friday in the form of volunteers building a ramp to their home on Wolfsville Road. Arran Willock, 7, and his adopted sister, Hannah, 2, children of Brad and Rebecca Willock, were born with Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, a disorder than left them unable to walk or talk.

For nine years Ronnie Grove didn't know a single person who could understand what she was going through. After she was diagnosed with primary lateral sclerosis (PLS) - a disorder that few people, even doctors, have heard of - she felt isolated. And with little information about her disorder, she believed she was dying. But then, Grove, 62, of Berkeley Springs, W.Va., signed up for a newsletter produced by the National Organization of Rare Diseases, and she began to learn of others who have the same rare nervous system disorder.

Don't put weight before inner beauty To the editor: Growing up in today's society is extremely hard: not only because of high prices, but also because of the way people are pictured. All you hear about are children and adults being overweight. Although this is true, this is not my problem. I have a problem with how girls and women are pictured. Our society believes that everyone should be that "skinny size zero. " Our bodies are made differently and no one person will look the same.

For many people who bought Powerball tickets before Wednesday night's $587.5 million drawing, two bucks might seem like a small investment. For some, that's what it is, but others see playing the lottery as gambling that, in some cases, could fuel an addiction. “I buy a ticket once a week, but I know how to handle it,” said Serita Cooper of Hagerstown. “I'm not addicted to it. I don't have to have it every day.” For others, the urge to buy lottery tickets could be an addiction, just as playing table games or slots can be, said Richard Benchoff, program director of Wells House Inc. in Hagerstown, which provides treatment to men with addictions.

The landscape was brown, the trees were bare and darkness appeared early. Some people thought he merely had the blahs - a malaise that came with the approaching gloom of winter. But it was a lethargy that Steve Sager couldn't explain. "I felt like I was walking with lead boots, and it was not fun," he said.

They are children whose innocence has been betrayed. They have been abused, neglected and abandoned - never knowing the loving bond of mother and child. Often, they are shuffled through foster homes, sometimes staying for only a day or two. If they are adopted, the differences between them and children who grew up with parents who doled out attention become obvious. Quiet and shy one moment, they suddenly can fall into fits of rage. They can be indiscriminately affectionate with strangers, but push away the hugs of those who love them.
