Last year, fifth-grader Hannah Hearn and some of her classmates washed fire trucks; this year it was police cruisers. Hannah, 11, was one of nearly 300 Faith Christian Academy prekindergarten to 12th grade students taking part in their school's annual Labors of Love community-service project. Teams of students were sent to 48 work sites Friday morning in Morgan, Berkeley and Jefferson counties in West Virginia, and Washington County in Maryland. Their tasks ranged from simple landscape projects like raking, weeding and planting flowers to house-cleaning chores, pet care, roadway trash pickup, trail building, painting, washing windows and emergency vehicles and singing to nursing-home residents.

Broadfording Christian Academy and New Life Christian School split two Mason Dixon Christian Conference boys basketball regular-season matchups. The “tiebreaker” came in Saturday's MDCC Tournament championship game. Only four players scored for New Life, but those four did just enough damage to sink Broadfording 67-66 for the title. “We have four guys who average around 14 to 17 points per game,” Rams coach Bruce Bryant said. “They can all score at any time - it's a nice luxury.” Nate DeJong led New Life (20-8)
