It's been 50 years since Dave Bragunier stepped on the stage at South Hagerstown High School to play his tuba as a member of the school's first graduating class. This Wednesday, Bragunier will return to that very stage to perform "Beelzebub," the same composition he performed that day in 1957. He will perform solo with the school's Wind Ensemble backing him up during the school band's Spring Concert. While Bragunier is an accomplished tuba player, having performed with the National Symphony Orchestra for 43 years, he still has had some nerves to get over because he hasn't played regularly since retiring in 2004.

Cochran coached the Rebels varsity football team from 1957 through 1963. His most successful season came in 1962, when South went undefeated and won the Cumberland Valley Athletic League and Tri-State League championships. "I would not be here today teaching and coaching without his guidance," said Rebels baseball coach Ralph Stottlemyer, who as a student at South played for Cochran on the football team.

"Hey, what's up n-?" What is the deal with everyone and their grandmother using the N-word? I hear it all the time in school, in the stores, and just about everywhere else. I mostly hear it when teens are talking to their friends. I also hear teens use the N-word as peoples' names. All around school this goes on, and I just don't understand. I would honestly like to know what the obsession with this word is. Is it cool or something to call somebody the N-word, as if it were their name?

May the best science win To the editor: I see that Allan Powell is back again ( Nov. 19) with his "mountains of evidence" for Darwinian evolution with the forces of "epistemology", and the "openness and rigor of science" that he claims for his position. As examples he proposes the writings of Darwin himself and of his most vociferous defender of our time, Richard Dawkins. Dawkins seems like a strange standard bearer for pure science when his crusade for evolution starts from a purely ideological proposition as he tells us himself, "Darwin made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist.

HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. - When saxophonist and composer Frank Foster toured Southern venues with the Count Basie Orchestra in the mid- to late 1950s, Foster and his fellow musicians couldn't stay at the big-name hotels. "We had to stay at black hotels in the black community," he says. They couldn't eat at roadside restaurants while touring, unless they just bought their food and left. At performance venues, they had to use bathrooms for black patrons and watch as black customers had to remain in the balcony or behind rope barriers on the main floor while white patrons danced.

The three-man band For the Taking could be described as a metal-and-hardcore hybrid with a smattering of punk. Or, say band members after a bit of hesitation, maybe they're "melodic hardcore," adding that figuring out where their music best fits has been the source of argument among the members for years. Perhaps it's easier to look at what they aren't. For starters, For the Taking does not curse or use explicit language. Take the following lyric from their song "Green and Brown" - about guitarist Jason Kantoski's girlfriend - as an example.
