It's that time of year again when woolly bears can be seen creeping and crawling throughout Washington County. Collecting the critters can mean cash for those who hunt out the "Cutest and Cuddliest" and "Biggest and Woolliest. " Entrees for the 17th annual Woolly Bear Contest held by the Hagers-town Town and Country Almanack will be accepted starting Friday and must be in by Oct. 31. The person entering each winning bug will receive $100 and the runners-up in each category are given six copies of the 2000 almanac.

Open season on all the tourists? All this, and we're expected to be nice as well? That's the message of an ad campaign cooked up by local tourism brass who believe that perhaps we're not being as kind as we could be to strangers. So, the ads coach, we should be polite and smile if, for example, a tourist asks for directions. We should not, the spot cautions, try to run tourists down. Oh, come now, who do the travel people think we are, John Rocker? Don't answer that.

Manager Frank Cacciatore is ready to get the show on the road. That's a good thing because those are the two things the Hagerstown Suns will be all about at the beginning of the 2006 season: The show and the road. The Suns will be cast as a band of vagabonds to start the new season Thursday with eight of their first 11 games being played away from Municipal Stadium. "It's going to be a whirlwind for us," Cacciatore said as the Suns are scheduled to report to town today in anticipation of the start of the new season.

BOONSBORO -- Minutes have no place in the game of baseball. There are no timeouts, no running out the clock. The game lasts exactly as long as needed. For Brad Keller, the game has lasted a lifetime. Keller played from 1976 to 1980 for the South Mountain Little League. At that time, his father was the league president and teams played at Shafer Memorial Park. The lessons he learned weren't just about baseball, Keller said. They were life lessons. "The players, the coaches -- we became a family," he said.

No matter how momentous or ordinary a first is, it boils down to one thing. It's only a starting point. The Hagerstown Community College women's basketball team defeated Potomac State 80-58 on Monday in its season opener. It was the first game for HCC's new head coach Vicky Bullett and the majority of the Hawks roster. But firsts don't last. “Coaches are never satisfied,” said Bullett. “Basketball is a game of runs, but we didn't defend very well. When coaches see the things that they worked on all week before a game, they aren't happy, but they have to be patient.” Bullett will have a year's worth of patience ahead of her as she opened her first season of coaching the Hawks, replacing Marlys Palmer after 32 years on the bench.

WILLIAMSPORT -- Connor Renn was on familiar turf Saturday morning -- the pitcher's mound. It's been his comfort zone since he was 5 years old and learning the basics of baseball. But this time, there were no windups, no curveballs or smoking missiles snapping the catcher's mitt. There was no team to beat. He already had beaten the odds. On Feb. 12, Connor was diagnosed with ganglioglioma, a rare, benign tumor that was found on his spinal cord. His doctors didn't expect the 13-year-old to be out of the hospital at this point.
