BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- Toni Davison was on her first deer hunting trip with her grandfather in the Cold Run Valley area Monday when he bent over and fell. "I said, 'Are you all right?' and he didn't respond," Toni, 15, said Tuesday. Curtis Lane Walker, 73, of Berkeley Springs, died Monday of an apparent heart attack on the first day of West Virginia's buck season. Toni called her mother, Tammy Walker Davison, on a cell phone from the woods after her grandfather fell, and the girl's mother told her how to perform CPR on her grandfather.

HAGERSTOWN -- When Nancy Mullinex stepped off a city bus at Public Square in downtown Hagerstown during the lunch hour Monday, she wasn't sure why there was a small crowd gathered in front of an American flag. After learning that a brief flag ceremony -- a collaborative effort between three local Exchange Club chapters -- was designed to remind people of the sentiment behind the flag, Mullinex said she thought it was an important concept. "I think it's a good idea. A lot of people don't know how to fly the flag or any of that," said Mullinex, of Hagerstown.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- On a football field that looked more like a wading pool, Waynesboro tailback Greg Wade was clearly in his element. The Indians senior slogged for 172 yards on 40 carries and three touchdowns on Friday to drown Red Land 23-9 in a Mid-Penn Colonial game. According to Waynesboro coach Darwin Seiler, the soggy conditions worked to the Indians' advantage. "In all honesty, the weather took away some of our running game," said Seiler. "But we're certainly used to playing in these conditions.

It didn't take long for Thomas Johnson to show off its explosive offense. Fourteen seconds, to be exact. Ryon Lynch connected with Marquis Woodyard for a 74-yard touchdown pass on the first play from scrimmage, giving the Patriots an early leg up on their way to a 38-12 victory over North Hagerstown in the season opener for both teams Friday at Mike Callas Stadium. It was a result that could have had the Hubs hanging their heads, but North coach Dan Cunningham would have none of that.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- Zach Layhew scored three touchdowns on Friday for Hedgesville, none bigger than the final one that gave the Eagles a gritty 26-20 victory over Washington in overtime. The Eagles, who have won three straight games dating back to last year, bolted to an early lead and watched Washington roar back before landing the victory. "It was certainly one of those games you hate to see a team lose but I'm glad it was us that won," said Hedgesville coach Paul Plott.

HANCOCK -- It all began with an idea that Charlie Hudson saw in a children's magazine: A Fourth of July bike parade.  Charlie is the son of Judy and Dennis Hudson, the owners of the C&O Bike Shop in Hancock. In a small town with limited resources that has been trying to weather a bad economy, the "simple things are the best," and that proved correct on the Fourth of July.  More than 20 children -- infants to 12 years old -- gathered in front of the bicycle shop in Hancock to decorate their bikes in red, white, and blue streamers, small American flags and flowers.
