Everything seemed to go much better for the Smithsburg lacrosse teams after they coped with a few primal urges. A little hunger and a little anxiety can go a long way. Cullan Ganley whet the Leopards' appetites with three critical second-half goals to lift the boys team to an 8-3 win over North Hagerstown, before Allyn Saling scored four first-half goals to help eliminate some early jitters as the girls team notched a 15-5 victory on Thursday...

Satisfying a hunger for a career change By KATE COLEMAN Susan Maye knew she wanted to study art after she graduated from North Hagerstown High School in 1975.

"I think that the girls came out hungry and ready to play soccer after a 2 1/2-week break," Smithsburg coach Bill Fowkes said. "We're always looking to improving, but we're where we need to be right now. Our overall team speed was too much for Northern Garrett.

"I realize you should always be grateful for what you have," said Heather Fridley, 14, as she began her 27th hour without food Saturday afternoon. Heather was one of about 20 youths who participated in the event Friday and Saturday through Blair's Valley Church of God.

SHARPSBURG - Fine art, muscle cars and fried food might sound like unlikely companions. Even so, the three worked as a complementary trio in the case of the Mighty Mo Car Show and Reunion Saturday at Antietam Gallery. Antietam Gallery owner Jim Kehoe and street rod photo artist Thomas O. Nichols teamed up to create an artistic rendering of the drive-up diners and hot-rod cars of their high school days in Prince George's County, Md. They celebrated the release of the limited edition print, titled "There's a Moon Out Tonight: A Tribute to the Mighty Mo," last November with an "everything '60s" car show and reunion.

Many take it for granted that the refrigerator will be stocked with plenty of food for dinner and there will be milk ready to pour over the family's morning cereal. But for thousands of Franklin County, Pa., residents, the cupboards are bare. For American Legion Rider member Joe Cocco of Chambersburg, Pa., that is unacceptable.
