Ice Cream

On Feb. 29, I attended the 13th annual Washington County Business Awards, which was held at Hager Hall Grand Ballroom in Hagerstown. The event was co-hosted by the Hagerstown-Washington County Chamber of Commerce and the Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Commission, and is one of the most anticipated events of the season. I am also pleased to announce that two of the award winners were farms. Yes, family-farm-based businesses. Creek Bound Farms, the Jim and Bonnie Weddle Family, won the Leading Edge Award, which is awarded to a Washington County business that leverages technology to advance its organization.

About five years ago, farmer David Herbst and his family had a big decision to make. With two of his four children - married with kids of their own - wanting to continue the family business of operating Misty Meadow Farm on the outskirts of Smithsburg, they either needed to drastically increase their dairy production or undertake more custom-crop farming to support everyone. “We needed to go to 600 cows if we wanted to support these other families,” Herbst said, saying the idea was met with great resistance by his daughter, who handles most of the milking of their 160 cows.

Bells clang. Lights flash. Buzzers blare. Children scream. Bug-eyed creatures turn repetitive 45-degree angles, and machines spit paper tickets like some kind of mechanical vomit. Sometimes, by the time I leave commercial play places, I feel bug-eyed and ready to vomit, too. Many parents exclaim the virtues of these popular children's entertainment venues. They say such places are secure. Kids can run free and have a good time while parents chat over coffee - or in some cases, beer - and then drive home fuss-free.

No matter how much we try, things never stay the same. One facet of Hagerstown life which seems to remain a constant made its annual appearance over the weekend. It's known as the Hub Cup, a wrestling tournament at North Hagerstown. But as much as the tournament tries to stay the same, it is much different than it was when it began in 1988. After 25 years, you could say this annual competition has gone from tradition and changed to an institution. By definition, that doesn't seem like much.
