MONT ALTO, PA. Pool champion Richard Barney has a big break ? and it's taking him to Germany. By winning a U.S. nine-ball championship in his age category, Richard earned a berth in a world event in November. This month, he'll play in the U.S. Open nine-ball pool championship in Virginia. He has won other tournaments locally ? sometimes against adults, sometimes as the youngest player to win, according to his growing rÃ©sumÃ©. At 15 years old, Richard is fairly sure he wants a life of cue sticks, felt and corner pockets.

No, please, if there is a God in heaven, no! I give; uncle; I'll tell you where the gold is buried. You can do anything you want to me, just don't make me drive through one of those horrible, stinkin' roundabouts at the main entrance to Hagerstown Community College. This has to be a joke. Please say it's a joke. April Fools' Day in October. Does anyone anywhere in this county ever think, for crying out loud? You want roundabouts? Fine, drive off U.S. 340 toward Brunswick, where they have about four in a row. Oh, that's great fun. It's like "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" in sheet metal.

"I had Ruth Hyatt, the crossing guard that hugs all the kids in the street, cross me when I went to elementary school. I am now 25 years old and to this day she still hugs me every time I see her. She crossed me at the corner of Mulberry and East Washington Street while I walked to Bester Elementary and continued for many many many years after that. She is the most kind and loving woman I have ever met and I hope that my 5-year-old son will have the privilege to be crossed by her. So stop judging her just because she holds you up for a few seconds.
