After two frustrating losses at the hands of Gettysburg and Boiling Springs in the past week, the Greencastle-Antrim Blue Devils girls team finally jelled together, rebounding against Shippensburg for a 59-44 Mid-Penn Colonial victory behind Chloe Hoover's 27 points and 12 rebounds. Hoover, coming off of a disappointing four-point performance in a 35-32 loss against Boiling Springs on Wednesday, erupted against an overmatched Greyhounds squad. The junior forward capitalized on excellent interior passes and great point play from freshman Hannah Crist to cement herself as the game's top player.

BOONSBORO - Hettie Ballweber likes to say she and her husband, Bill, have a lot of fast friends ... greyhounds, that is. "We found homes for 79 greyhounds last year, all from racetracks," said Hettie Ballweber, who with her husband has lived in Boonsboro for the past 11 years. Together, they have run Fast Friends Greyhound Rescue for three of those years. The breed is sadly misunderstood, as are their needs for suitable homes, she said. Greyhounds, though large, are bred to be nonaggressive, easily leash-trained and very adaptable for living in small homes and apartments.

BOONSBORO -- Hettie Ballweber couldn't have been happier when she learned that Fast Friends Greyhound Rescue Inc. was named Shelter of the Week by SPCA International. The announcement means that Fast Friends will receive a $1,000 award for placing retired racing greyhounds into responsible and loving homes. "It was our program called Craiger's List that actually got us the award," Ballweber said by telephone last week. She and her husband, Bill, co-founded Fast Friends and Craiger's List.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- It wasn't expected, but from the very first moment a Greencastle football player touched the football, the rout was on. Jacob Statler returned the opening kickoff 70 yards to set up Greencastle's first score and, except for a few seconds to open the second half, it was all Blue Devils in a convincing 48-7 Homecoming victory over Shippensburg at Kaley Field on Friday. Greencastle (3-0) scored in a variety of ways -- three runs, a pass, a punt return, an interception return and two field goals.

GREENCASTLE, Pa - If Richard Nixon can erase 18 minutes from the Watergate tapes, Garon Gembe shouldn't have a problem getting rid of eight minutes of a basketball game. The Greencastle boys basketball coach would certainly like to forget the third quarter of Friday night's Mid-Penn Capital game against Shippensburg. That's when the Greyhounds turned a four-point deficit into a nine-point lead, then held on for a 71-68 win. The Blue Devils (7-11, 2-6) committed 10 turnovers in the decisive third period, and only took eight field goal attempts to 19 for the Greyhounds (14-4, 7-1)

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - According to Meatloaf's popular song of the 1970's: Two Out of Three Ain't Bad. But it certainly wasn't good enough for Greencastle's girls basketball team. The Blue Devils managed to stay close for three quarters Tuesday night before finally succumbing to Shippensburg's defensive pressure, 57-43, in a Mid Penn Colonial matchup. After relinquishing a two-point advantage midway through the second period, Greencastle remained within five points of the lead until the final seconds of the third quarter before the Greyhounds turned a pair of turnovers into easy buckets at the outset of the final period to establish an eight-point margin that was never threatened.

A Greyhound bus stop on Dual Highway near Hagerstown ceased operations last week after a Washington County zoning board in January denied a special exception allowing the operation, a bus company official said Thursday. The bus stop was operated by Hub City Shippers, which had served as the ticket agent since December 2010. Hub City Shippers moved from a previous location on Dual Highway to Foxshire Plaza at 1423 Dual Highway, just outside of Hagerstown, in November 2011. “We're very interested in the possibility of operating in the area, but from what we've been told, there's no zoning currently where we're at,” Greyhound spokesman Timothy Stokes said.

The Washington County Board of Zoning Appeals has denied a special exception that would have enabled a Greyhound bus stop to continue operating at Foxshire Plaza Shopping Center at 1432 Dual Highway outside of Hagerstown. The zoning appeals board decision followed a Jan. 4 public hearing, during which residents living in the Foxshire Plaza area spoke out against the station being allowed to operate at the current location. Nearby residents testified at the public hearing and employees of stores in the plaza, interviewed by The Herald-Mail, described incidents of late-night loitering, littering, theft, drinking in the parking lot, and pubic urination and defecation involving riders using the Greyhound bus stop.
