"Ask me to find the letters, Mommy!" My 4-year-old flashes an expectant look in my direction and waits as I ask her to find an "S" in the grocery store detergent aisle. It's a little game we've been playing recently, and it serves several purposes. First, I know it's my responsibility to prepare her for kindergarten. The grocery store is a great place to review what we've been learning at home. There are numbers, letters, colors and shapes on every shelf. Secondly, I'm presenting her with a challenge that helps channel her seemingly endless energy in a positive way. My favorite purpose, though, is that we have a lot of fun doing it. I'm always looking for ways to turn the mundane, necessary parts of life into worthwhile experiences.

HAGERSTOWN -- Grocery-bagging contests can be menacing. Just ask Brendan Creegan, an 18-year-old bagger at the Martin's Food Market on Pennsylvania Avenue in Hagerstown. "The other baggers can be intimidating," he said. "You don't know what they're going to say. They can taunt you. " Creegan competed with nine other baggers from the Tri-State area Friday in the fifth annual Martin's Best Bagger Competition at the grocery chain's store on Wesel Boulevard. He said the trick to bagging is to make sure the weight of the groceries gets distributed evenly in the bag. "You have to watch how you bag it or the bag is going to break," Creegan said.

Hagerstown City Police officers are investigating the armed robbery of a city grocery store Friday morning. A man entered Mouse's Deli and Grocery at 640 George St. and demanded money, said store manager Gloria Murray. Murray said she first refused, but then handed over $150 after she noticed he was holding a handgun. "I can't run faster than a bullet can go," said Murray. She said she would not have given the man the money had he not been carrying a weapon. "We would have had a knock-down, drag-out fight," said a shaken Murray, whose store was robbed about three years ago. The man, who was wearing a black mask, then ran out of the store, said Murray.
