We spend much of our lives really trying to get three things. To be loved. To be successful. To be respected. We want to stand out, make our families proud and start some sort of legacy. But before we die, there is only one thing we worry about. That is to be remembered. Everyone wants to feel like they made a difference. Many want to prove their stay on this earth made an impact. What that impact is depends. Some do it with the families they raised.

The next time Josh Conway picks up a baseball, he will have a new ligament in his right elbow. Conway, a former Smithsburg High School star and a junior at Coastal Carolina University, will have have Tommy John surgery Tuesday in Pensacola, Fla., to repair a completely torn ligament. It will be performed by noted surgeon Dr. James Andrews, the guru of Tommy John surgeries for baseball pitchers. “It's a little bump along the road,” said Conway. “It is what it is right now and I have to deal with it. I've always worked hard and I'll keep working hard to come back.” Conway was drafted in 2009 by the Atlanta Braves in the 42nd round, but elected to continue his career in college at Coastal Carolina.

HALFWAY -- The Halfway 11-12 All-Stars showed all the guts and determination they needed to steal the Maryland District 1 crown from Conococheague, the defending Maryland state champion, on Thursday. After losing to Valley on July 9, Halfway manager Les Martin spent the next week retooling the mindset of his team. It took a little Knute Rockne for motivation and some Mother Teresa for comfort. And he wrapped it up with some divine intervention. "I didn't expect this after we lost," Martin said after Halfway beat Conococheague 15-3 to win the league's fourth district title.
