Image is everything. That's what they say ... at least when they are selling cameras. But image is more than just a picture. It's also a perspective. It's a focus, even in camera land. And at times, it is even a stereotype. Certain words conjure up their own images - and stereotypes. Let's take professions, for instance. Sportswriter. Right away, it's an overweight guy who gets paid to watch games, spends too much time in front of the television and always seems to have a hot dog or a beer in his hand.

Molds, like records, are made to be broken. They are nothing more than pre-formed standards. A mold is a model for shaping. A record is a standard that shapes all performances. Bryce Harper is starting his quest to change both concepts. Harper joined the Washington lineup just 10 days ago and has added a whirlwind of interest not only to the Nationals, but to baseball. The 19-year-old former Hagerstown Sun has already made eye-popping defensive plays and timely hits, a couple already leading to wins.

HAGERSTOWN -- Mold was discovered on the underside of the roof at Northern Middle School while crews were working to replace ceiling tiles in June, according to Washington County Public Schools spokesman Richard Wright. Wright said he does not know whether the mold is dangerous, but said it will be removed by the time school begins in August. Crews began removing mold July 1. Wright said he did not know how long the mold was present in the building or how much was found, but pointed out that environmental testing showed there was more mold outside the building than inside.

Put a paper towel inside a glass so that it is up against the side of the glass; put the seeds between the towel and the glass.

Here's a fun idea for an adults-only Halloween party. HAUNTED BLEEDING HEART (Tested by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) If you want gross, here it is, adapted from the 1972 book "How to Play With Your Food," by Penn and Teller. The recipe uses a 6-1/2-cup Valentine heart gelatin mold. I made changes in the ingredients to fit my 2-1/2-cup mold. I couldn't wait to invert the mold. The heart slid out easier than I expected (don't forget to coat the mold with cooking spray)

Lorenzo Alexander has quite a collection of white bottles, labeled with words straight from a biochemistry class. Beta Alanine Supreme. Carnitine Synergy. Uber C. Some 19 containers, big and small, in his Washington Redskins locker. “I have a lot of supplements,” he said. The consummate self-made NFL player, Alexander has always been conscious about his diet. Like many players, he also gets advice on the right mix of tablets to maximize his endurance and energy output. Or, as he puts it, “to help balance your body out.” This year, it's been more of a challenge to find that balance.

Who knew? You wouldn't know it by looking at Barry Brown, but he's Aristotle in a green pullover. The Hagerstown Community College men's basketball coach has spent an entire season teaching some simple philosophy to turn the Hawks into something special. A team is much better if all the pieces fit together and are useful. That is a coachspeak version of saying, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” Since practices began in October, Brown hasn't been shy about projecting success for this HCC team.

o View Ag Expo photos for purchase! Tucker Bubacz eyed the orange demon's head glaring from a table in an exhibition building at the Washington County Ag Expo & Fair and wondered whether the person who carved it was coming back to claim the sculpture. The 5-year-old said he wanted the artwork, even when told it was made of cheese and would not last long. "I'd keep it till it rots," Tucker said. Despite Tucker's enthusiasm for the piece, top honors at the Expo's first amateur cheese- carving contest went to Rachel Wiles of Williamsport and Carol DeBaugh of Boonsboro, who collaborated on what Rachel called "a dog house for a pig ... We tried to make it a dog, but it ended up a pig. " Other cheese whizzes at the competition were Maryland Dairy Princess Tessa Wiles of Hagerstown and Rachel House of Clear Spring who paid a fromage homage to the state with a three-dimensional cheddar map and Dairy Maid Macayla Wiles, who carved a crown topped by the 4-H symbol.

Steamed Christmas plum puddings are as British as the Queen Mum. Traditionally, the steamed cakes are made about five weeks before Christmas, preferably on the last Sunday before Advent (this year, it was Nov. 22). Stir-up Sunday marks the official start of the holiday baking and cooking season in England. A steamed plum pudding for dessert at Christmas dinner is still a big deal, as essential to a British celebration today as it ever was. The nickname, Stir-up Sunday, is taken from the Collect for the Day in the Book of Common Prayer on the Sunday before the beginning of Advent: "Stir-up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people ... " But it was the rhyme of schoolboys on the playground that made the pudding connection: "Stir up, we beseech thee, The pudding in the pot, And when we get home, We'll eat it all hot. " To the Brits, "pudding" is the dessert course of a meal, nothing like the American pudding, a soft, spoonable dessert.
