Born on Dec. 12, 2000, Hagerstown resident Kayla Bailey turns 12 wednesday, on 12/12/12. “It's kind of cool that they're all put together like that,” Bailey, a student at E. Russell Hicks Middle School said Tuesday. “My mom's taking me out to dinner for it.” Although this is the first time the day, month and year aligned for Bailey's birthday, she noted that her special day always does coincide with her new age. She turned 1 in 2001, and 2 in 2002, for instance. But, she said, “Turning 12, on the 12th, in the 12th month of 2012 is a little different.” After Wednesday, the next time the last two digits of the year, the month, and the day will be the same numbers will be in a little more than 88 years.

Leah improved on her freshman numbers at Saint James - when she scored 47 goals - by recording 72 goals and 18 assists in helping lead the Hubs to the MVAL Antietam Conference title and a 10-win season.

DOWNSVILLE -- Susan Peterson is a bit uncomfortable with the idea of a story written solely about herself. If it has to be done, she said, she wants to make sure the people who helped her form the Hagers-town Area YMCA Lacrosse Association (HAYLA) are mentioned. Those partners were Erin Rafi, Sue Fahey and Mike Ewing. When Peterson and her husband, Jim, lived in Carroll County, Md., their children played lacrosse. But when the family moved to Washington County in 2002, there were few options for the sport.
