When Kelli Martin first got Shadow a few years ago, the paint thoroughbred once reared up on her back legs and flipped over. The horse had been dropped off at New Beginnings Farm northwest of Hagerstown and she acted as if she had a history of abuse, Martin said Sunday. One of the rider’s first sessions with the horse led to Shadow's new moniker, Pain in My Shadow, said Martin, 26, of Hagerstown. Their ride was smoother Sunday with the pair earning the title of reserve champion in the horse pleasure adult division at the Washington County Horse Council's Hunter Show at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center south of Hagerstown.

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.

It's January, and I know that for three reasons. The first is that the calendar says so. The second is that it's freezing cold. And the third is that I have to review garbage like "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. This month is notorious for its awful slate of new releases (not to be confused with awards season favorites like "Zero Dark Thirty" that open in limited release the previous year and wait until January to go wide). Studios come down from the holiday rush by releasing the absolute worst of their back catalogue that would get creamed against real competition.
