When I was a kid growing up in Hagerstown's South End, there were certain things that always seemed to be part of the summer ritual. The list usually included swimming at Municipal Pool, feeding the ducks at City Park, taking in a Hagerstown Suns game and most importantly — eating a snow cone with seafoam. We grew up in a Smurf blue house on South Street, which was prime walking distance to our favorite snow cone site. A sweet older lady, whose name I can't remember, lived just up the block on South Potomac Street and made snow cones on her side porch.

For most children, Easter egg hunts are a traditional event to look forward to on Easter weekend. For four girls at Girls Inc. of Washington County, however, this year they were able to spend Easter Monday hunting for eggs on the White House lawn. This was part of a field trip that took the girls to the White House Easter Egg Roll April 5. The girls enjoyed a beautiful day on the President's lawn, participating in many activities. They first wanted to hunt for eggs and then were able to dye their own eggs to take home.

And the 13-year-old cadette Girl Scout isn't looking to bag just one big one - she's after a whole bunch of little ones, all named Teddy. "I'm collecting teddy bears to put in police cars for children to have if they are in an accident," Caytie said.

Yes, that was a black bear you saw in Hagerstown's Public Square on Thursday. A costumed version of one, demonstrating against a proposed bear hunt this fall in far Western Maryland. Norm Phelps, of Funkstown, Western Maryland coordinator for the Fund for Animals, was accompanied by the "bear" Thursday as he handed out leaflets urging people to protest the hunt. His group has offered to give the state $75,000 to reimburse farmers for crop damage by bears as long as they call off the hunt.

A new survey found that 65 percent of Marylanders support regulated hunting as a way of controlling the state's growing black bear population, the Department of Natural Resources said Monday. The Fund for Animals, which opposes plans for Maryland's first bear hunt in 51 years this fall, said the survey was biased. The group maintains that most Marylanders oppose bear hunting. The DNR released the survey results on the last day of a public-comment period for proposed bear-hunt rules.

If you offer candy, they will come. Municipal Stadium in Hagerstown became a field of dreams on Saturday as thousands of children realized their biggest fantasy - the ground covered in sweets. In an area of the ballpark where players prowl for line drives and home runs are smashed over the fences, children scrambled for plastic eggs filled with treats. It was a free communitywide egg hunt organized by Lifehouse Church, an event held in partnership with local businesses. “It's our way of reaching out to children and families, sharing our love and providing everyone with a fun day,” said Sheliea Athey, administrative assistant for the church's outreach team.

A Western Maryland legislator is trying again to gain passage for a bill that would allow bow-hunters to carry handguns while hunting in some areas of the state. Sen. George C. Edwards, R-Allegany/Garrett/Washington, has introduced a bill similar to one filed last year that passed the Senate but did not get out of committee in the House of Delegates. “(Hunters) are allowed to carry a handgun as they hunt with a rifle … but you cannot carry a handgun and hunt deer with a bow,” he said.

Geocaching enthusiasts liken the game to a massive outdoor treasure hunt. And while the prize is usually small, the hunt is actually the big pay-off, say players. As a way to encourage more people to get out and explore more of Maryland's municipalities, the Maryland Municipal League will open the Discovering Maryland MML Geotrail Saturday, Jan. 5, in Hancock Performing Arts Center at Town Hall. The kick-off will be from 10 a.m. to noon and will be held in conjunction with the opening of two other geotrails in Greenbelt, Md., and Perryville, Md. There will be light refreshments, how-to demonstrations, kids' activities and door prizes.
