Sometimes, seasons are like book reports. You remember those. You get a book and read it before trying to summarize what's been written and what it meant to you. And like anything else, some of us jump off the cliff and get involved, while others just take shortcuts by leaping into CliffsNotes. The fact is, no matter if it's an everyday assignment or a sporting event, what we the players get out of any situation really depends on what we put into it. Maybe that's why the idea of “it's the journey, not the destination” is always standing in the background in many long-term events - like political campaigns, athletic seasons or anything else that becomes a slice of life.

She loves the outdoors and the feel of a warm breeze on her face. Music is a big part of her life and so are her friends at school. But while other 16-year-old girls are looking forward to driving, hanging out at the mall and going to formal dances, Karly Diller is confined to a wheelchair, unable to walk, talk or sit up on her own. She is spoon-fed pureed food and wears diapers. And almost every day she has seizures. It isn't the life Jeffrey and Karen Diller expected for their daughter.

Draped in their red gowns, Benjamin Shuster and Edward Beachley took the podium together Friday morning - and got the full-house crowd laughing inside North Hagerstown High School's auditorium. The tandem, North High's Class of 2012 valedictorian and salutatorian, respectively, went back and forth, alternating every few words in their opening remarks. “But no, we would not do that because that would be...,” Beachley said. “Very annoying,” Shuster quickly chimed in, prompting widespread laughter.

HAGERSTOWN -- For retired pilot Frank Lamm, slipping behind the controls of the Hagerstown Aviation Museum's C-119 Flying Boxcar was a journey back in time. Decades ago, Lamm spent eight years flying C-119s for the Air Force and the Pennsylvania Air National Guard. So when Lamm took the pilot's seat Thursday to begin the first leg of the 55-year-old plane's ferry flight home to Hagerstown, "it felt very familiar," the Gainesville, Va., pilot said. Despite the plane's age, Lamm said he had no apprehension about the trip.

Nearly everyone who knows me says, "You must write about your experience of being a mother of children with disabilities. " But it's not that simple. Even as I sit here now in front of the computer, emotions flood my mind and body. My hands quiver and my brain panics searching for the precise words to help communicate the enormity of it all. And yet, for some reason, I want you to know what it's like to have a child with a disability. Perhaps if you get a glimpse of what a disabled child means to a family, you can show respect and admiration toward a special needs family rather than pity and disregard.

In 2012, Washington County ruled Maryland high school volleyball. Smithsburg continued its reign as the queens of Class 1A, winning a fourth straight state title to tie Williamsport's title run from 2002-05 as the longest in county history. The Leopards have won nine titles overall - tied for third-most in state history. After going seven seasons without a state title, Williamsport reached the top of the Class 2A mountain last year for its 13th championship overall, second-most in state history behind Centennial's 14. Last but not least, North Hagerstown successfully repeated as Class 3A state champs - beating the storied Centennial program in the state final - to add to the Hubs' bragging rights as MVAL Antietam champions.

In my experience as a professional fitness expert, I've found that my most successful clients have one thing in common: They were willing to get out of their comfort zone, and change their lifestyle to get the best results possible.    Fitness isn't something that you tie on, it is a way of life that extends beyond the gym. Working to change your body while trying to maintain the comforts of your current lifestyle is a lot like trying to...

I was riding my bicycle out in the middle of nowhere the way I always do, when a couple of Harley riders flagged me down. Bikers like to get off the beaten track, but generally not that far off the beaten track, so they were pretty sure they were hopelessly lost. They were trying to find a spot known as the Troubadour, which is maybe the region's last great honky-tonk still owned and operated by a member of the vanguard of country music artists who changed the genre following World War II. As it turned out, the Harley riders weren't lost at all - they had just given up a mile too soon.

Eighteen years ago today my first child was born. "It's a boy. I have a son!" my husband jubilantly exclaimed. Our lives have not been the same since. It is difficult to remember how we spent our time before we had children. Now that our son is preparing to head to college in the fall, I don't want to remember what it was like before he was born. Each step of this journey has brought new blessings to us. That first night in the hospital, it took us 30 minutes to change his diaper and dress him in a clean undershirt.

There's something to be said for not wasting a second chance. Christian Lopez of Martinsburg, W.Va., knows that all too well as he basked in the glory of making it to the next phase of “American Idol” during the infamous Hollywood Week, which aired Wednesday and Thursday nights. But Christian's journey ended this week when he was cut from the Thursday night elimination round. “I have absolutely no regrets,” Christian, 17, said during a telephone interview from his home.

Chances are that those presents under your Christmas tree traveled a long way to get there. And chances are, whether they came from a local retailer or were bought online, they passed through a “hub” and a distribution center at a shipping company such as FedEx or UPS or a sorting center at a local post office. The warehouses where these shippers operate tend to be busy places this time of the year with thousands of packages swiftly passing through the buildings en route to their destinations.

This is the 195th in a series of articles about the historical and architectural treasures of Washington County. Shrouded by vegetation, settled on a rise, Journey's End stands on over two acres of land among stately trees and elegant, understated gardens. Surrounded on three sides by The Terrace, Park and Forest streets in the North End of Hagerstown, it is protected by tall hedges and stone walls. The house is built of coursed stone, with a steeply pitched slate roof and copper gutters.
