Judy Greenwald was hoping that what awakened her in the night was not just a dream, but a premonition. Her car was totaled last week in an accident. The Greenwalds had been planning to attend the Hagerstown YMCA 2013 Fundraiser “Toasting the Twenties” at which the grand prize was 2013 Volkswagen Passat or $20,000. “I woke up Thursday during the night and I told my husband, 'I'm gonna win the car,'” Greenwald said. She and her husband were among the 350 people who waited with anticipation throughout Saturday evening at Hager Hall Conference & Event Center as attendees' tickets were pulled from the running one by one to eventually reveal the winner.

We should never disagree with the word of God To the editor: Yes, I love gays and lesbians. God loves them, too. But I do not believe they have the right to marriage, be it civil or otherwise. Nor do I believe they have the right to the same benefits as heterosexual couples. I truly believe the reason for the problems we are having in the world today is that people who call themselves Christians, and even some churches, are compromising with the Bible and world affairs.

Chef Joe Fleischman's plan worked out perfectly Wednesday when children in attendance of Family Fit Night flocked to the self-serve fruit and yogurt parfait line he had cunningly prepared. “Brightly colored food usually is good for you, and kids go for it,” said Fleischman, of Meritus Medical Center, gesturing to the table stocked with mangos, strawberries, blueberries and peaches. Little did the giddy group know, Fleischman's snack was not only healthy, but also fewer than 200 calories, he said.  Hosted by Washington County nonprofit HEAL - an organization aimed at fighting obesity by promoting Healthy Eating and Active Lifestyles (HEAL)

I've worked with a lot of parents who ask me how they can help their overweight pre-teen or teen lose weight. This is becoming more and more of a request as the nation gets fatter and fatter. Chronic inactivity, paired with increasingly subpar nutrition habits in and out of school are causing our young people to develop "grown folk" diseases like type-2 diabetes earlier and earlier. However, during middle and high school years you don't want to focus on severe calorie restriction or excess weight loss.
