HAGERSTOWN -- A Rouzerville, Pa., man pleaded guilty Tuesday to involuntary manslaughter in the death of a Hagerstown man last year. Darrow Lee Shupp, 30, could face as much as 10 years in prison when he is sentenced July 8. Washington County Deputy State's Attorney Joseph Michael said the prosecution plans to ask that Shupp serve five years in prison and that the other five years be suspended. Shupp's attorney, public defender Carl Creeden, said the defense might argue that Shupp should serve less time in prison.

The Smithsburg wrestling team took advantage of a short-handed Walkersville squad and cruised to a 66-18 victory Saturday afternoon. A total of six bouts were contested - all of which ended in pins. Walkersville was forced to forfeit eight matches. “A win is a win,” said Smithsburg coach Joe Dietrich, whose team improved to 6-10. “(Walkersville) had a lot of open spaces, but we'll take it.” The Lions (3-10) took an early 6-0 lead when Ty Tucker pinned Smithsburg's Saul Hererra in the 285-pound weight class, but three consecutive forfeits by Walkersville gave Smithsburg an 18-6 lead.

It can be something as simple as falling off a bicycle or as forceful as slamming to the ice during a hockey game. But both incidents could result in what the American Academy of Pediatrics has termed "a silent epidemic" among children - concussions. Recent data from hospital emergency rooms across the country revealed that:  Roughly half a million ER visits for concussions occurred among 8- to 19-year-olds.  About half were sports-related and 40 percent of the sports-related concussions involved children between the ages of 8 and 13.  Football and ice hockey were the organized sports with the most concussion injuries, while bicycling, skiing and playground activities accounted for most concussions occurring from non-team-related activities.

There were images of first steps, terrible twos, dance recitals and the kindergarten play. Now her niece -- Angela Aguilar-Barron -- was graduating from college. "I'm doing a lot of remembering," Lewis said. "It's all gone by way too quickly. " She probably wasn't alone in her thoughts as thousands of parents, family members and friends packed Hagerstown Community College's Athletic, Recreation and Community Center for the school's 61st annual commencement.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - I wanted a gaping head wound, but aside from early stages of decomposition and a trickle of blood down the corner of my mouth, there was no visible evidence of what killed me. Instead of devouring human flesh, it looked as though I had just been snacking on it. About a week earlier, an item, "Maryland Filmmaker Needs Zombies," appeared in The Herald-Mail. Extras would not be paid, but would be fed, get all the soda they could drink and could watch movies between scenes.

DUI laws need more than just talk To the editor: It seems that recently it has become impossible to turn on a local radio station anymore without hearing a commercial warning listeners about strict new DUI laws. Listeners are told that if you choose to drink and drive you'll lose your license and, more than likely, go to jail. Up until recently, I believed this to be true. On April 14, 2005, at 6:20 a.m., my family and I were struck head-on by a driver who had used both heroin and methadone prior to getting behind the wheel.
