laurae@herald-mail.com Although many people were preparing for nothing worse than a temporary power outage in the hours before Hurricane Isabel was expected to arrive in the Tri-State area, emergency officials moved into high gear Thursday. Counties throughout the Tri-State area set up emergency operations centers to coordinate coverage. Police agencies and fire departments made sure all hands were on deck and ready for the worst, even though weather forecasts showed the storm's intensity decreasing.

Since the St. Maria Goretti girls basketball team spent so long looking for its offense, it is a wonder that the Gaels didn't check the Lost and Found department. The offense seemed to be in some office closet somewhere as Goretti had trouble finding the basket, too, leading Grace Academy by only 22-13 with two minutes remaining in the third quarter. The Gaels saved the price of a classified ad as everything suddenly began to click in the final 10 minutes as a closing 32-5 run gave Goretti a 54-18 victory Tuesday that ended up being tougher than it looked.

At a rally in Waynesboro, Pa., on Saturday, about 1,000 people signed their names in favor of preserving the square, said organizer John Leos. The Waynesboro Historical Society and the grass roots group "Save Our Square" are trying to stop the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation from eliminating parking spaces on the square. The group has moved into high gear since the Waynesboro Council voted to change the square last month. Speakers at the rally included retired Franklin County Judge John Keller, former Mayor Thomas Painter, former Council President Kinney Stouffer and former Hagerstown Mayor Steven T. Sager.

SALISBURY, Md. - It was a good thing for the Hagerstown Suns that Josh Habel didn't finish his outing the way he started it. Habel allowed hits to the first two Delmarva hitters he faced on Thursday before shifting into high gear for seven innings of four-hit pitching to pace the Suns to a 3-0 victory over the Shorebirds. Levi Robinson and Gera Alvarez reached safely in the first before Habel retired 11 straight to keep the Shorebirds off the board. Arturo Rivas ended the streak with a leadoff single in the fifth.

By BRENDAN KIRBY Staff Writer A search committee soon will interview 12 semifinalists for Maryland Symphony Orchestra conductor, as the quest to replace Maestro Barry Tuckwell kicks into high gear. Pointing to two boxes overflowing with 253 resumes, managing director Marc D. Levy said the nine-member search group winnowed the field to 36 in mid-June and to 12 in mid-August. Levy said officials hope to wrap up interviews by mid-November and to cut the number to four or five finalists.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com Gas prices have gone up, but anyone driving in the Chambersburg area over the Labor Day weekend will not have the added inconvenience of dealing with construction crews and equipment over the holiday. The construction zones, however, still will be there, said Ray Alden, a project manager on the U.S. 30 widening project east of Chambersburg. "What you see is pretty much what you'll get," Alden said Wednesday afternoon. The south side of U.S. 30 east of Stouffer Avenue out to about the 1400 block of Lincoln Way East is still undergoing reconstruction with excavation, filling and paving going on this week and resuming after the holiday, Alden said.

At the risk of sounding like a schoolboy, I ask: Where did the summer go? It doesn't seem that long ago that high school baseball teams were wrapping up their seasons, little leagues were in high gear and our newsroom seemed deserted due to the number of people on vacation. But here we are going into the last full week of August and like every kid in the area, we're getting ready for the school year. For us, that means rounding up athletic schedules, contacting coaches and athletic directors and preparing previews for the fall season.

bobp@herald-mail.com SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - Mark Cubit's job description has evolved into part basketball coach, part traffic cop and part airline pilot. The Mercersburg Academy "caretaker" just has to scratch his starters into the scorebook, navigate substitutes to the scorer's table and then kick back and put things into auto pilot. "I don't change anything during the games," Cubit said. "(The players) tell me what to do. " Cubit had his tray table in the upright position as the No. 1 Blue Storm moved their running into high gear with dominant rebounding and precision passing in the middle quarters Wednesday to notch an easier-than-indicated 72-63 victory over short-handed No. 3 Jefferson.

It's hard to believe summer is already gone. Not officially, but it might as well be. School is in session throughout most of the Tri-State area and the high school sports schedule kicks into high gear this week. It's the time of year that the sports department loves, and loves to hate. We love this time of year because -- as far as high school sports go -- it's sort of the spring training of the school year. You hear the metaphors all the time during baseball spring training about renewal, the fresh start for players and teams.

GREENCASTLE, PA. Several motorcyclists described a feeling of freedom that comes with riding, as they embarked on a group journey from Greencastle to Martinsburg, W.Va., in support of veterans. That freedom is in many ways thanks to the veterans, they said. "It's because of the veterans that we have the freedoms that we do to do this," said A.J. Davenport, who joined his wife, Mary Ann, and a steering committee to organize the 16th annual Operation God Bless America ride.

BOONSBORO Boonsboro football coach Clayton Anders wanted his team to go back to the basics. After two disapointing outings in a row in which the Warriors suffered on the scoreboard and the injury list, Anders felt a return to something sure and safe would help right the ship against Clear Spring on Friday evening. It worked. Senior quarterback Zach Shoemaker hit Matt Byers on a perfect pass less than three minutes into the game, while junior Mike DeBarge returned the Blazers' first punt 62 yards for a touchdown as Boonsboro blasted Clear Spring 53-6 in the MVAL Antietam opener for each team.

SMITHSBURG - The Smithsburg lacrosse teams had their playoff seasons decided on running. The Leopards' boys team used the constant motion of foot seed to notch a 13-6 win over Catoctin Thursday in the first round of the Maryland Class 2A-1A West Region tournament. Meanwhile, Smithsburg's girls just ran out of time. Michelle Nupp scored in the closing seconds of overtime to lift Francis Scott Key to a 10-9 victory over Smithsburg. Smithsburg's boys gassed up their attack in the second half to break a 5-5 halftime tie and pull away from the Cougars.
