chrisc@herald-mail.com Miss Maryland Executive Director Sherry Rush said that in the preliminary events each contestant was scored in each event on a scale of 1 to 10 by the pageant's seven judges. Just as in some Olympic events, the high and low scores are discarded and the remaining five scores are used to figure the contestant's mark for that aspect of the pageant.

Q: After a job interview, I know you should send a thank you note. I normally fax my letters the same day or the day after. However, I have some questions about this process. When I'm interviewed by several people, should I include all their names on one letter or send a separate letter to each person? If I send separate letters, can they all have the same wording or should each one be different? And if someone fails to give me a business card, what if I forget their name or don't know how to spell it?

Remember the scene from "Blazing Saddles"? People who've seen the 1974 Mel Brooks movie no doubt remember "the scene. " For those who haven't seen the film, the scene depicts a bunch of cowboys sitting around a campfire letting out the symphonic results from a meal of beans. As comfortable as those cowboys were in the desert letting loose, chances are most people wouldn't be as comfortable if they passed gas during a date or job interview. While passing gas is natural, it is not polite.

Greg Kellick wasn't born into the North Hagerstown-South Hagerstown football rivalry, though he's been a part of it for so long it might seem that way. When Kellick leads this year's South squad onto the School Stadium field for the 50th meeting between the city schools, it will be his 29th straight year as an active member of the rivalry - his 19th game as head coach after 10 seasons as an assistant.
