Verna Brown's advice is like an umbrella. When the sun is shining and everyone's smiling, it's easy to think “Life is good.” But if you're caught outside in a slashing storm, you'll wish you'd planned ahead. And if you're caught in a natural disaster, you'll really wish you'd planned ahead. Getting you to plan ahead is Brown's job. She is Washington County's emergency management coordinator.  “The word 'disaster' is misleading,” Brown said. “I like to tell citizens you're preparing for your average, everyday-type emergencies, even if you're at home.” Brown is co-organizer of the first Preparedness in the Park, a community event to encourage citizens of all ages to prepare for trouble - natural disasters, house fires, power blackouts, neighborhood evacuations - all kinds of trouble.

Blocking and tackling are usually the most important things in football. Clear Spring knows those techniques will take them places. But they add two more factors on their list - health and prayer. Coach Craig Bathgate admits he's pretty happy with the team he has taking the field for the 2013 season, but it doesn't mean he isn't looking for a safety net or two. “We have to pray to stay healthy and we have to play iron man style,” he said. Health is important when you only have 25 players on the roster.

It didn't get much better last year, when the Terrapins went through four quarterbacks and a six-game skid that resulted in a 4-8 record. Now, as Edsall prepares for his third stab at a winning season, he's got every reason to believe that a fresh start will result in a change of fortune. His optimism comes from the fashion in which his athletes have reacted to his team-first philosophy. “Everybody is holding each other accountable.

Merry Christmas!” People are everywhere. Families walking, couples holding hands. People are shuffling off to church, home or to pick up a last-minute Christmas gift. I remember years ago asking my father about that scene. “Was it really like that?” He nodded and explained how Main Street in Waynesboro, Hagerstown, Chambersburg and thousands of other small towns in America once bustled with activity every day except Sunday.

As a child, Erica Bauermeister lived in books.  Even on long car trips, she recalled, she would claim a space in the back of the family station wagon amidst the suitcases, where she would make her own hiding spot and read her way through the miles. Books took her to far off places, introduced her to fascinating people and created magic. “They also taught me that you could make your own magic simply by observing the world very carefully and noticing things other people didn't,” Bauermeister said.
