Anne Weatherholt | Around Hancock | February 16, 2011
Midwinter doldrums can be licked in many ways. Now that much of the snow has melted, it's time to tie on the walking shoes and hit the Western Maryland Rail Trail. The towpath is still pretty muddy, but the rail trail is clear and the trees are beginning to show signs of new growth. If you prefer something inside, but outside your home, Hancock in Motion is sponsoring a free popcorn-and-movie night, Saturday, Feb. 26, at 6:30 p.m. at the Community Center. The movie "Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2" will be shown.

Killer Frost is lurking. He's ready to pounce and lay waste to everything delicate thing in his path. When the frost warning aired last week, I was relieved that the tender plants that will be spending the winter in the house were already potted up and ready to haul inside. Getting them inside is one thing - finding a place for all of them is yet another. Over the years, I have resigned myself to the fact these tender babies will not really flourish in the house. So my goal has become to just keep them alive.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN Larry Hershman should have been on the football field Saturday night. He should have been roaming among high school marching bands that performed during the Harvest of Bands, critiquing their visual performance. Instead, he became a spectator when the competition was moved indoors because of rain. Since the bands had to perform in South Hagerstown High School's gymnasium, they were judged only on how they sounded, not on how they looked.

John Bailey took over for Cindy Mease as Williamsport's head indoor track coach this winter and the perennial-power Wildcats showed no signs of weakness.

"Coach Bailey came in and nothing changed. The rules were the same, so were the expectations. "He's just a really awesome coach. Everybody peaked at the right time.

erinc@herald-mail.com When temperatures dropped recently, people reached for winter coats and bulky sweaters. While they were bracing for the season's chilliest week, area police anticipated a change in criminal activity that usually accompanies cold weather. Hagerstown Police Department Sgt. Paul Kifer said it seems that snow, rain, low temperatures and inclement weather often reduce the number of incidents to which officers respond. Hagerstown Police do not keep statistics about weather's affect on crime, and Kifer based his statements on personal observation.

"Great bouncing icebergs!" Fans of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" might recognize the exclamation. Santa Claus utters it when he first spots Rudolph's "nose so bright. " For some reason, it never struck me until I watched the classic this year. Then it tickled me and I've been using it–OK, maybe overusing it–every chance I get. This week, with frigid outdoor temperatures, it seemed the perfect utterance. It was 4 degrees when I took my kids out for school one morning.

My younger kids started their traditional summer swimming lessons this week. Usually, the five-day session at a family friend's pool offers a cool reprieve from the scorching sun. Such was not the case on opening day this year. Given lesson-time temps around 65 degrees with occasional spitting showers, kids were teary-eyed and turning blue in the pool. "I'm trying extremely hard," my 5-year-old shivered, "but I just can't get warm. " Spurred on by promises of hot chocolate, the group toughed out the hour-long lesson.

Big surprise, Boonsboro's Becky Walter is The Herald-Mail's Washington County Indoor Track & Field Coach of the Year again, earning the honor for the third straight year.

The girls managed to prevail without star sprinter Abby Duncan, who was sidelined all winter with an injury.

Emily Ward spread her arms out high over her head and smiled gloriously as she reached the finish line a safe distance ahead of those pursuing her. The North Hagerstown junior finally was a state champion, and she couldn't have been more thrilled - or more relieved. After finishing a disappointing third at the Maryland Class 3A state meet on Feb. 19 in the 1,600-meter run - in a race in which she tripped, crashed to the track and had to fight her way back for bronze - Ward returned to the track later that evening for the 800-meter run. And she wasn't about to be denied this time, as she blasted away from the field in the second half of the race to capture her first state title in a personal-best time of 2:23.51.

It might seem like Boonsboro senior Josh Testa came out of nowhere in indoor track this year. In some ways, he did - just ask the Williamsport Wildcats. Testa overcame a seemingly insurmountable deficit on the final lap of the 800-meter run at the Washington County championships on Jan. 18 as he edged Williamsport's Cody Grams at the finish line for the victory. It was a four-point swing in a meet Boonsboro ultimately won by three points, 154-151, over the heavily favored Wildcats.

Fresh off their second straight Maryland Class 1A indoor track and field state title, the Boonsboro girls have their sights set on a third straight outdoor state title this spring. “We go into each season with pretty high expectations,” Warriors coach Becky Walter said. “We know what we want, and the only way to keep improving is to work toward that goal. “Just about everybody who competed for us at states indoors is back this spring,” she added. “And we have a few other new bodies who have some potential.” Boonsboro managed to prevail indoors without star sprinter Abby Duncan, who suffered a torn ACL in her right knee during soccer season early last fall.
