Easton, 34, of 24 Willard St., said he chose to seek a seat on the council because he is dissatisfied with the current administration. Watching the council meetings on Channel 6 has given him the impression the city's elected officials have no respect for each other or for the residents who come to the council for help, he said. "It's amazing to me how unprofessional the current administration is and how they conduct business," Easton said. "They are an embarrassment to the city ... They degrade business people who bring fresh ideas.

Once again, the Conococheague Little League 10-11 All-Stars fell behind, then battled back to make a thriller out of a Maryland State Tournament game on their home field. And once again, Conococheague fell one run short. After a heartbreaking 8-7 loss to Elkton in seven innings on Sunday, Conococheague rallied from an 11-5 deficit to take the lead in the top of the fourth inning against Easton in Monday's losers' bracket contest. But Josh Risher's tiebreaking two-run home run in the bottom of the fourth proved decisive as Easton eliminated Conococheague from the tournament with a wild 14-13 victory.

On behalf of the parents and coaches of the Federal Little League All-Stars, thank you, thank you, thank you! Our boys took us on an unforgettable, six-week journey that would not have been possible without the incredible support shown by our community. From Easton to Bristol to Williamsport, Federal fans were there in number and in spirit, and we will always be grateful. I remember saying to my father during the state championship game versus Easton how incredible it was that Federal had more fans that Easton.

Federal Little League's postseason run has brought back some great memories from my youth. I was part of the National Little League All-Star team in 1982 (back when there was only one all-star team per league and only one tournament). If I may say so (and I will), we had a heck of a team. It was the first year Little League tournaments went to double-elimination format. We didn't need it to win the district title, beating Halfway, Conococheague and Oakland twice. We were grateful for double elimination in the sectional tournament after blowing a lead and losing to Northeast in the winners' bracket final.

EASTON, Md. - The Federal Little League 11-12 All-Stars are one win away from being crowned Maryland state champions. Federal took a 6-0 lead through three innings against Easton on Tuesday, then had to hold on as Easton mounted a sixth-inning rally that came up just short as Federal advanced to the championship round of the Maryland State Tournament with a 6-4 victory in the winners' bracket final. "Our goal was to try to stay in the winners' bracket, it takes some pressure off our pitching staff," Federal manager Bill Abeles said.

Distance became a problem for Paul Easton. He hasn't lost the drive to coach basketball, but his drive to get to where he coached basketball was a little much. Easton resigned as boys basketball coach at Saint James last week following two years of commuting from his home in Herndon, Va. “Making a commute like this takes a toll on you and your family after two years,” Easton said. “It was a tough decision, with the passion for basketball I have, to make. It was more than just about basketball.” The Saints finished 13-14 with a toughened schedule this season following a 17-10 record in Easton's first year after succeeding Mike Brooks.

A former Hagerstown City Councilman and one re-elected in November have differing viewpoints about how the city handled information about an anonymous eight-figure donation that would have helped make a downtown stadium project possible. Councilman Lewis C. Metzner said Dec. 4 that it's looking less and less likely that the verbal commitment for $15 million would become reality. The financial feasibility of the downtown stadium proposal was contingent upon receiving the private donation, city officials have said.

Easton, 37, of 24 Willard St., who was elected to the five-member city council in 2009, said there were several factors that went into his decision to withdraw from the race, including a recent promotion at work that will require more time and travel. “That was probably the final decision-making process for me,” Easton said, “but overall, the underlying issue ...

The only pitch thrown at the Maryland 11-12 Little League state tournament on Saturday was the ceremonial first pitch. A persistent rain would never let up, forcing the postponement of the opening round of the 2012 event at the Brunswick Little League. District 1 champion Clear Spring was scheduled to open its quest for the state title on Saturday against Easton, but the tournament opener was moved to today at noon on Field 1. South Maryland will meet Rising Sun at 3 p.m. and Hughesville will meet West Salisbury at 7 p.m. “We were all fired up and ready to play, but it's the same for the others,” said Clear Spring manager Pete Lazich.

After hearing little public comment a week ago, Hagerstown City Councilman Forrest Easton was vocal Tuesday about the city's steady tax rate and proposed budget for fiscal 2012-13. Prior to a vote on introducing the pair of ordinances, Easton told council members he would be voting against both because the city is “not competitive” with surrounding areas with its current tax rate of $0.788 per $100 of assessed property value. The tax rate on business personal property is $1.97 per $100 of assessed value.
