Honking. For the love of God, Washington County Commissioners, you gotsta amend your anti-noise ordinance to include honking before it's too late. Mark Twain said that comparing a human to a feline elevated the human but “degrades the cat.” I get that same uneasy feeling every time I see a governmental board trying to legislate animals. The humans never come out looking good. And that's what is going to happen here, where the commissioners needed to decide what animal sounds were to fall under the umbrella of a pending noise ordinance.

I don't write about our three geese much, basically because it would be about as compelling as writing about three cold sores. They are surly, loud, obnoxious fussbudgets - and those are their attributes. The best you can say about them is that they are fair. They hate everyone and everything equally. They scream at me when I feed them their corn; they hiss at me when I toss them treats. Their venom is akin to three sour old chain-smoking aunts, always grousing and hacking at the children and wisecracking about their parents.

Between 300-400 Municipal Electric Light and Power customers in Hagerstown's South End lost power at around 5 a.m. Tuesday when a goose crashed into two power lines behind Hagerstown Bookbinding and Printing. The impact forced together two primary wires, burning them and tripping the breaker at the nearby substation, according to Dave Burgan, MELP distribution superintendent. "Most of the affected customers were commercial," Burgan said. Because of the early hour, the impact was minimal.

As Christmas rapidly approaches, your mind often drifts back in time thanks in no small part to movies like "White Christmas," "Holiday Inn," "The Bells of St. Mary's" and "A Christmas Carol. " We all long for a simpler time when the holiday season didn't seem so hurried. If you, like me, are a fan of such movies, you long for a sleigh ride, a hearth-cooked meal or a Christmas goose. What you forget is all the work involved in such endeavors. Let's take the sleigh ride, for example.

o If you like reading Tim Rowland, you'll love watching him. See what else Tim has to say We've all seen those miserable, cutesy little feature items about dissimilar animal species that hook up to form an unlikely bond -- a dog and a cat, a goat and a chicken, James Carville and Mary Matalin. These spots annoy me as much as the next person, so you can imagine my horror when, on Little Farm by the Creek, a miniature horse and a goose got together and decided that no one was going to out-Walt Disney them.

I confess to only hanging around the fringes of NASCAR. I might catch a little of Daytona and keep up with the chase standings. But the real reason I keep coming back to NASCAR time and time again is headlines like this one: “Tony Stewart Downplays Goosing Kevin Harvick's Wife.” Even if you know nothing, or care nothing, for car racing, I defy you to skip past a headline like that. And I know you don't want to waste precious seconds looking it up on your own, so here's the lede, as reported by ESPN: “A video of Tony Stewart grabbing the rear end of Kevin Harvick's wife has gone viral, but the three-time Sprint Cup champion has downplayed the incident as a routine between friends that he believes brings good luck.” Weird.

A few weeks ago, I had another birthday.    Since I enlisted in the military at age 18, was in my first prison riot at 22 and then knocked over a telephone pole at the age of 25, I always had the premonition that I was going to die young. Since I'm now too old to die young, I usually sing in the shower on my birthday. This year I was singing “I ain't as good as I once was, But I'm as good once, as I ever was” by Toby Keith. Felt good when I got out of the shower, so I went to the kitchen to take a few Motrin so that good feeling would last for a while.

Valley held Clear Spring scoreless in the first inning, something no one else had done during the Maryland District 1 Tournament. But Clear Spring scored all its runs in the next three innings to take a 19-1 victory at Aaron Steiner Field and advance to host the district final. "That was our goal, to keep them off the scoreboard in the first," said Valley manager Mike Mathias, whose team will play in the elimination final.
