"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.

Editor's note: This is the seventh in a series about neighborhood grocery stores. There was a time when Smithsburg Market was just another mom and pop grocery store — nothing special because there were so many more just like it. Now, those stores mostly exist in memories. That's what makes this small business on South Main Street special. It has with- stood the test of time. It was about 30 years ago when the store opened its doors to customers. Since then, it has found a new location on the opposite side of the street It also has had several owners and more competition for the dollar.

Editor's note: This is a first in a monthly series about neighborhood grocery stores. The lament of shop owner Frank Corsi Jr. went beyond the expected reminiscing about when penny candy really cost a penny and soda fountain drinks cost a dime. It's the people coming into Corsi's Market, said Corsi, the corner store's 77-year-old owner, as he looked across the semi-filled store shelves to a vacant soda fountain counter. "That soda counter used to be full," Corsi said.
