WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Walking through the halls of Waynesboro Area Senior High School, it is nothing for junior Derek Null to get a few heckles. "Yo, Derek! You wearing a necklace?" one kid shouted. "What, you win the idiot of month award?" a teacher joked as he gathered up props for a photo shoot. Calmly, Derek takes it all in stride. As president of his class, founder of the Indians and Maidens Club, member of the boys varsity basketball team and human fountain of school pride, everyone at the Second Street building knows his name.

WILLIAMSPORT - It was only last February that Dave Walker visited Williamsport. By May, he was calling it home. He had spent most of his adult life working in Washington, D.C., and was growing weary of traffic congestion, noise and the high cost of living. As he approached retirement, he began looking for something he thought he would never find - a small town that hadn't been affected by sprawling urbanization. He found it in Williamsport. Within a few short months, Walker said he has been welcomed into the community and feels a sense of peace that he never felt in a metropolitan area.

Go ahead and call Mildred "Millie" Ebersole a West Ender. She takes pride in having been born and raised on that side of Hagerstown and doesn't understand why it gets a bad rap. "Everybody says the West End is bad. Well, if it's so bad, I don't know why it's not bad for me. Everybody talks to me, treats me good. I think it's their attitude, how you treat people," said Ebersole, 80. Ebersole focuses on simple ways to make her corner of the world a better place. Sweeping the sidewalk year-round, regardless of the weather, is just one way. "I'm not someone to sit around and lay around.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The words "Indian pride" are painted in large block letters on the wall at the new Waynesboro High School gymnasium. But according to boys basketball coach Tom Hoffman, there was precious little of that on the hardwoods Monday night. "You can handle mistakes," said Hoffman after Waynesboro's 49-44 loss to Cumberland Valley, "but when there's a lack of pride and a lack of passion, there's not much to talk about. " Despite the lackluster effort, Waynesboro still had an opportunity to win the game.

Four current green highway department signs that stand at the four entrances to Shepherdstown don't reflect, as one local Rotarian claims, “our sense of pride in community.” Work on the first of four new signs that will reflect that sense of pride “and the welcoming spirit we wish to convey to visitors,” is expected to begin this week, said Rotarian John Loeffler. It will cost $24,000 to make and install the 4-foot-by-5-foot sign into a 5-foot-by-10-foot limestone wall frame, said Loeffler, who first came up with the idea in the Shepherdstown Rotary Club in November 2011.

In the eyes of Mawdo Sallah, the finish of Monday's boys basketball game might have been a fitting conclusion, considering the way it started for the 6-foot-7 senior. Saddled with three personal fouls just minutes into the second period, Sallah came back to play a flawless second half and scored the winning bucket with 1 second remaining to give Broadfording Christian a 60-58 victory over Fort Hill. Down 37-26 at halftime and looking like a team from nowhere, the Lions (17-5) rallied with 10 minutes of solid basketball from a 49-31 deficit with two minutes left in the third period.

One of 11 children who was born to sharecroppers in Sledge, Miss., Pride had dreams of being a baseball player.

Even as a major league pitcher, the idea of family isn't wasted on Darren O'Day. He has learned that baseball teams are part of an extended family. And the family is the happiest when it is winning. There are a lot of smiles to go around in Baltimore these days, especially with the Orioles in the thick of a pennant race and seemingly headed for no worse than the franchise's best record and first playoff berth in 15 years. The Orioles' family is built on a common belief this year - that they can really be champions.
