HALFWAY-Compared to most collectors, Alan Comins got a head start pursuing his hobby. He became interested in toy helicopters at the age of 10 - the time most boys' notions of collecting went no further than baseball cards. "I'm not sure what the initial fascination was," the Boonsboro resident said. "I guess I just thought they were kind of neat. " Thirty years later, Comins has a small room in his house filled with helicopters of all sizes. "I've lost count as to how many I actually have," he said.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - With just under two minutes left in the game at Shepherd College Friday night, Rams forward Brianne Hamilton threw a pass intended for Ashley van Norden that sailed two feet over her head and landed in the third row of the seats behind the media table. Shepherd coach Jodie Runner took a deep breath and let it out. If she had done that every time the Rams turned the ball over, she may have hyperventilated. Shepherd gave the ball away 25 times, but shot an uncanny 55 percent from the floor to finally pull away from a stubborn University of the District of Columbia team, 72-55.

WILLIAMSPORT - If the Williamsport girls basketball team is doing it with mirrors, they would be of the rear-view variety. That would make the Wildcats smaller than they seem, if that's possible. Ask anyone - especially coach Curtis Graff - and they'll tell you the Wildcats are as small as they come. But they are quick. So quick, they ran rings around Brunswick on Friday, pressing the Railroaders into submission with a 62-48 win in the Monocacy Valley Athletic League. "The press took time, but it took its toll," Graff said.

MAUGANSVILLE -- Dave King puts a whole new spin on volunteering. The former Mack Trucks worker shows up at Maugansville Elementary School before 7 a.m. every weekday and doesn't leave until the last bus does in the afternoon. "It makes my day," King said. "I look forward to it because I love being around kids. " When King ended a 31-year career at Mack in 2003, he had the idea to pursue his photography hobby. While he still takes pictures, it wasn't enough for him. "Then this opportunity came along," King said.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - According to sports lore, teams are an extension of a coach's personality. If it's true, please welcome the new Shepherd College women's basketball team with the new Betsy Blose. The Blose reclamation project made its debut on Monday as the Rams adopted a more light-hearted approach to their floor game and celebrated with a 102-75 decimation of Bluefield State in the first round of the West Virginia Conference tournament at the Butcher Center. Blose scrapped her "nose to the grindstone" style to more of a "Girls just want to have fun" emphasis.

By MARK KELLER Staff Correspondent WILLIAMSPORT - The Williamsport girls' basketball team's starting guards, Ashley van Norden and Erin Gross, have been dubbed 'Fire and Ice' by coach Curtis Graff. But things were a bit out of balance for the Wildcats Thursday night. With van Norden absent due to illness, it was the cooler Gross leading Williamsport to a 17-4 first quarter lead en route to a 53-25 win over South Hagerstown in a Monocacy Valley Athletic League game. "Erin is much more a control player.
