For Ryan Tetter, art is a good way to vent. For Carolyn Snyder, her art is like a diary, expressing her emotions. For some students, art is just an assignment like other school projects and for others it’s a passion, something they are likely to continue as a hobby or profession. Ryan, 18, said he hasn’t figured out which medium on which he wants to focus, but he envisions himself continuing art as a hobby. About to graduate from Boonsboro High, Ryan plans to attend Hagerstown Community College to study graphic and Web design.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- They say the average ham radio operator is a 59-year-old man. A quick inventory of the Cumberland Valley Amateur Radio Club and that assessment appears spot on. But look again. In the corner, with their feet barely reaching the floor, are two young girls who recently have defied the stereotype by becoming two of the youngest licensed "hams" in the state of Pennsylvania. On international air space, they are KB3SSN and KB3SSM. In person, they are 7-year-old Veronica Latham and 8-year-old Victoria Latham of Shippensburg, Pa. The girls officially have been on the air for a few weeks, but their parents, both licensed operators, have made radio a part of the girls' lives since birth.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Keith Grossnickle is betting his pocketbook on a hunch that slot-car racing is going to make a comeback. Grossnickle, 43, last month opened the Amazing Plastic Scale Model Shop, the fulfillment of a life-long dream. Walk into the store at 123 Walnut St. - at one time the building housed a bowling alley and a roller rink - and it's a typical hobby shop. It's also handicapped accessible. Boxes of plastic models - an arsenal of planes, ships, tanks and automobiles in scale - abound in the front section of the store.

If you had told me there were going to be fish on Fox television Sunday afternoon, I would have assumed that the Redskins were playing the Dolphins. But no. It was the World Championship of Bass Fishing, a spirited competition among professional anglers, that some misguided television producer somewhere assumed we would want to watch. I admit, watch I did - with the same horrored fascination with which drivers look at an automobile accident, or state engineers look at the Baldwin House.

Local speakers are presenting classes and workshops on such topics as Tips and Rewards for Using family.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Steve Jones will spend more than 300 hours building a plane he knows will never fly. It's not that Jones is a pessimist - just the fact the F-4 Phantom 11 he's assembling is made of plastic and fits comfortably on a tabletop. The Chambersburg, Pa., insurance adjuster was one of several Tri State-area model builders on hand Sunday afternoon at War Memorial Park in Martinsburg. The vice president of the Tri State Scale Modelers club in Hagerstown, Jones and his fellow model builders may spend months patiently gluing, cutting and modifying hundreds of plastic pieces into cars, planes and spaceships.

STATE LINE, Pa. - Harlan "Doc" Greenfield is serious about his toys. What started as a hobby, collecting the toys that are distributed at fast food restaurants, has become a side job for the Martinsburg, W.Va., man. Greenfield has so many Smurfs, Beanie Babies and figurines from countless movies - roughly 30,000 - that he had to build a shed near his house to store them all. "You get hooked. It is a good addiction," he said. Greenfield joined 40 other toy collectors who were selling and trading Saturday at the State Line Auto Auction.
