Just past the finish line, Brandon Horning was reduced to a lifeless heap. The Hagerstown Community College freshman had left it all on the track during the men's 1,000-meter run at the HCC Indoor Track & Field Invitational on Saturday at the ARCC. “That was rough, the hardest race I've ever run,” said Horning, a 2011 South Hagerstown graduate. “It was all arms, I couldn't feel my legs at all. When I was finished, my legs were so dead I couldn't walk.” But it sure was worth the effort.

There is a mention in a history of the Rohrersville Cornet Band that the founder of the group, Washington McCoy, is buried “within a stone’s throw” of the band’s performance hall. Perhaps McCoy is keeping an eye on the band, according to the history. He might have a busy job, given that the band is the longest-running community band in Maryland, members said Sunday. Organized in 1837, the Rohrersville Cornet Band is representative of bands that were a form of entertainment before television and radio, said Toby Gibbon, a clarinet player and president of the group who performed in the group’s spring concert Sunday.
