heatherk@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - Buttons in albums, buttons locked away in glass cases, buttons laid out on tables, buttons pinned to free-standing display screens, buttons by the hundreds in large bins that eager collectors sifted through with their fingers. "There have gotta be at least a million" buttons at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center Antietam Creek, one participant estimated Saturday, though there were too many for any kind of official count. The hotel was the site Thursday through Saturday of the Mason-Dixon American Political Items Collectors' annual conference, the largest annual political memorabilia show in the country.

The condition and the subjects - Abraham Lincoln on one side and Andrew Johnson on the other - insured the button would get top dollar at Thursday's action of the Mason-Dixon American Political Items Collectors Millennium Extravaganza at Hagerstown's Ramada Inn.

From Interstate 81 south, as soon as you cross into Maryland, look on your right for the Maryland Veterans Memorial Highway Monument at mile marker 11. Pull off on the right at the monument. As I followed Clue No. 1 on my first letterboxing adventure, my initial concern was traffic-related. Hopefully all the other drivers would be alert on this particular afternoon. Better pull into the grass just to be safe. Face the writing on the monument and notice the large bush to its right.

When I was a kid, most of my sports dreams involved dunks, home runs and touchdowns. These days, they're mostly about writing the perfect column on such feats. For today, though, I'll probably have to put that one on the back burner as well. It's about 3 p.m. on Tuesday and - as I was locking the door behind me for a short trip out of town, while trying to remember what I forgot to pack - it just hit me: I forgot to leave something behind.

Stepping along path to spring There are a lot of unofficial paths that cross from the town to the river. They begin in backyards and alleys that in any other town would have led out the other side to meadows and farms. In Hancock, these planned grids were cut off, compressed into our narrow bit of land between the Mason-Dixon divide and the Potomac gutter. Human feet have extended these avenues by way of narrow paths that take the direction of least resistance, dip across the old canal in places that stay dry, even in the spring, then plunge suddenly off the towpath to the riverside where there is a terrace of land along the bank.

Seven members and an associate of the Defenders Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club's 56th and newest chapter, the Mason-Dixon Chapter, donned their colors and mounted their Harleys on Saturday for a ride through the county.
