There has been a certain air about the Hagerstown Suns lately. And its a fragrance that's forcing manager Gene Richards to turn his nose up. We're not talking roses here. "We've been stinking," Richards said. The Suns have been more aromatic than aerodynamic over the last two weeks. Not much has gone right for Hagerstown since winning the South Atlantic League North's first-half title. The Suns were 4-10 through Friday and in last place in the second half, going 2-8 since knocking off Lexington for the first-half title on June 25. In the midst of the championship hangover, the Suns have stumbled through promotions and the conservation of pitchers.

When the deck is stacked against the Hagerstown Suns, manager Gene Richards is confident with the knowledge that he has an ace to draw. Jose Sanchez is Hagerstown's top hand and the closest thing to a guaranteed winner for the Suns this season. He might be the most overlooked starter in the South Atlantic League, especially playing for the Suns, who are studded with standouts and have all but owned first place in the North Division. "He may be (a quiet ace) to some, but not to me," Richards said Thursday after Sanchez received a no-decision in Hagerstown's 6-3, 11-inning loss to Lakewood.

A Sharpsburg man planting trees at his Powell Road home Thursday unearthed a live Civil War-era shell that authorities later disposed of by setting it off at a neighboring farm. “When I saw it I knew what it was,” J.D. Taylor Jr. said. “It was the second one I found here. “It was some kind of experience.” Taylor said he at first thought he hit a rock with his steel shovel while digging in his yard about a mile from Antietam National Battlefield sometime between 8:30 to 9 a.m. He pushed the shovel under the object, which was five or six inches deep, and knelt to pry it out. The Maryland State Fire Marshal's office said in a news release that the object was a 3-inch Federal Navy Schenkl that had not been fired and had an intact fusing mechanism.

In the mid-1700s, British soldiers on the way to battle might have marched right past the property on the old road crossing South Mountain. A century later, just after a battle nearby, Civil War armies did rush past on the same road, barely 12 paces away from the front door of the property's new log farmhouse. Today, the new battle threatening the old log house, barn and outbuildings at 20725 Reno Monument Road is the nation's ongoing economic struggle. With its owner in bankruptcy, the property has deteriorated.

The NCAA dropped the hammer on Penn State University on Monday, effectively crippling its once-storied-but-now-stained football program for years to come and doing so with incredible haste. Just weeks after former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was convicted of dozens of counts of child sexual abuse and days after the release of the Penn State-commissioned Freeh Report, the NCAA banned the Nittany Lions from the postseason for four years, stripped them of 40 scholarships, vacated 111 wins from 1998 to 2011 and fined the university $60 million.

Vicky Bullett isn't much for labels. There are a lot of descriptions that will be cropping up as Bullett takes over as Hagerstown Community College's women's basketball coach, replacing Marlys Palmer who retired after 32 years on the job. The only thing that “new” and “change” mean to Bullett is the team's uniforms, and “transition” is the style of play she will be teaching. The significance is a little more basic. “I'm really excited,” Bullett said. “When I saw the players coming in, it's going to be different.

Cherubs, turtledoves and unabashedly romantic verse figured prominently in Victorian valentines. But during the mid-1800s, Dr. Josiah Smith of Boonsboro received a card less given to gushing and more into rushing. Authored by an anonymous young woman living in Washington, D.C., the handwritten message encouraged the gentleman to make up his mind in choosing his wife  -   and hopefully, he would choose her. Whether she became his bride is a mystery. But more than a 150 years later, the card and its sentiments have survived, offering a glimpse into expressions of love and courtship from another era -  something the sender, simply signed St. Valentine, would never have imagined.
OPINION
By ALLAN POWELL | November 25, 2011
With the recent publication of former President George W. Bush's memoirs, “Decision Point,” in which he defends most of his record, another opinion is very relevant. John Dean, whose testimony helped drive President Richard Nixon from office, has his sights on others guilty of political misconduct. In his book, “Worse Than Watergate,” Dean makes a very good case that a “co-presidency” of George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney engaged in political misconduct more reprehensible than the Watergate scandal engineered by the discredited Nixon.
