SMITHSBURG - Smithsburg girls basketball coach Bill Fowkes strode quickly across the floor toward the locker room, staring intently at the scoreboard that showed his Leopards clinging to a tenuous four-point lead over South Hagerstown at halftime. Worse yet, his normally high-octane offense had been held to just 18 points and had two starters in foul trouble. Fowkes was sure that the impending snow storm and frigid weather didn't put his team into the deep freeze, but he also figured he knew what to do to turn the heat up on the visiting Rebels.

Editor's note : This is the 10th in a series of stories about candidates for Washington County Commissioner. Shortly after becoming The Morning Herald's first woman sportswriter in 1975, Sue Tuckwell faced a problem that reporters from the newspaper had not encountered before. Assigned to cover a men's basketball game at the University of Maryland, Tuckwell was unable to go into the locker room for post-game interviews. So Tuckwell, who is running for Washington County Commissioner, got a radio reporter to ask her questions for her. When he returned, she took the tape recorder to the press room and transcribed the tape before filing her story.

Heavens, no. Any time you take children to a public place, five minutes after you get there, they have to go to the bathroom. It does not matter if I was able to coerce three boys into visiting our facility before we left the house. I practically feel the moment coming.
