Alicia Notarianni | Making Ends Meet | June 21, 2012
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.

megp@herald-mail.com While the snow-covered ground may make spring seem like a distant dream, gardening enthusiasts can start digging in the dirt now - mostly indoors - to push the season along. To get in the spirit, growers can start planning their gardens, says Jeff Semler, a Washington County-based extension educator for 4-H youth development, agriculture and natural resources for the University of Maryland Cooperative Extension. Determine what types of plants you think you want to grow, then read books or seed catalogs to determine their height and spread at maturity, Semler says.

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.

Abby Duncan has been almost as unbeatable indoors as she has been outdoors on the track - as expected, at least by most. “I always set high goals, but I never expect to win,” the Boonsboro junior said. “If I expect to win, I'll get beat.” Duncan, a four-time outdoor state champ competing indoors for the first time this winter, more than lived up to expectations Friday night at the ninth annual MVAL Antietam championships at Hagerstown Community College. She won the 55-meter dash in 7.46 seconds to remain undefeated in that event this season, and she also was victorious in the 300 (43.47)

chambersburg@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Mother Nature could have been more cooperative, but there was still much to be learned indoors about the great outdoors at Sunday's Earth Celebration Day. The calendar said late April, but the weather felt more like early March with gray skies and temperatures refusing to rise above the 40s, so the annual event hosted by Renfrew Institute was moved from the park to the cozier confines of...
