If you picked up last Tuesday's Daily Mail, you might have found out that the Maugansville Goodwill Volunteer Fire Co. is hosting a safety camp for children at the fire station this week. It was mentioned in Lori Hall's "Around Maugansville" column. It is grass-roots information such as the safety camp that has helped The Daily Mail expand its local coverage of the various neighborhoods in the county. The Daily Mail has 13 town correspondents who write for the paper. We have correspondents in North Hagerstown (Jane Schmidt)

After two postponements because of rain, the top two teams in the Greater Hancock Church Softball League played for the season's championship trophy last Wednesday evening in Widmeyer Park.  First-place St. Thomas' Episcopal Church, which went into the playoffs undefeated, emerged victorious, narrowly defeating second-place Warfordsburg (Pa.) Presbyterian, 6-4. It was a suspense-filled game, not only because of the close score, but also because skies were threatening with plenty of thunder and lightning overhead as the game neared its conclusion.  Congratulations to the St. Thomas' team.

Get organized Patience is a virtue ... I think Mother Nature is testing ours. Chin up, the sun can't hide forever. Hopefully by the time you read this, you can say "What is she talking about? It's gorgeous outside!" There is much to do and well, I was going to say so little time, but technically we have the same time we did last week and will the next. So perhaps I am encouraging you to get organized and budget your time so that you can accomplish all that you need and most of what you want ... and perhaps find some time for some fun and relaxation!
