Ashley Grier had birdies on the opening hole each day of the Challenge at Musket Ridge but the end result was a little different on Sunday. After two even-par rounds of 72, Grier finished the Symetra Tour at 3-over-par 75 for a 219 card in her first tour competition since the end of the 2010 season. “All in all, I'm still happy how things went,” said Grier, who enjoyed playing in front of many friends and family. Grier had received a special exemption to participate in the Challenge at Musket Ridge and she responded by finishing tied for 46th in the field of 110 golfers.

In February when we were pushing snow around, it was hard to imagine this heat and dry weather we are "enjoying" now. It is the combination of these factors that are so devastating. We grow both warm season and cool season crops. The warm season crops such as corn thrive in warm and even hot weather, but they still require moisture. Our cool season crops, such as our pasture grass or your front lawn, go dormant in the hot weather but usually remain green when they get rain.

It’s common knowledge that cats don’t care for water. Most cats, that is, other than the Williamsport Wildcats baseball team. The Wildcats braved a steady downpour of sleet and snow to put away Boonsboro 11-3 in an MVAL Antietam matchup that was halted in the fifth inning due to the weather. The Wildcats (2-2, 1-1) did most of their damage in a six-run second inning. Tyler Nally got Williamsport on the board by scoring on a throwing error.

The plan was to take a van full of kids swimming at an area lake today. At the moment, the world is wet, the sky is gray, and the online hourly weather forecast seems to laugh at me. No one likes being laughed at. But I've learned over the years not to waste a lot of time fighting battles I can't win. So while I could put on my galoshes and shake my fists at the sky, I'm thinking of asking the great firmament if we can be friends. Sort of inviting it for a play date, or asking if she would like to dance.

Lately, when it rained it poured on the Hagerstown Suns. On Saturday, they were grateful for it. Heavy rains suspended the Suns' game with Lexington with the Legends holding a 5-0 lead with two outs in the top of the fourth inning. It may have been a good sign for Hagerstown (43-33, 5-4), which has been struggling through a drought and inconsistency with three losses in the last four games. It's something the Suns haven't experienced much of after winning the South Atlantic League Northern Division first-half title.

Saturday morning's rain dampened some Martinsburg Heritage Day events, but it had little effect on the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the “for the kids, by George” children's museum at the Caperton Train Station in Martinsburg. The museum, designed by Lisa Dall'Olio of Grove & Dall'Olio Architects of Martinsburg, is a fun and engaging hands-on “total immersion” experience. Children can touch and play with the exhibits, which are designed to teach the history of the region from the time before the Europeans arrived through the middle of the 20th century, including the region's railroad history.
