HAGERSTOWN -- Howard Nicholas doesn't like silence. He's much happier when the radio is on - tuned to the sound of Big Bands or "golden oldies" - or he's making music himself. Nicholas, 81, grew up with the sounds of barbershop music. His older brother sang in a quartet, then Nicholas joined a barbershop quartet when he was 9. Two of Nicholas' four sisters married singers of the quartet he sang in as a young man. For 62 years, Nicholas has been a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society.

CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Would-be protégés of Donald Trump famously start by selling lemonade. For Bette LaPlante, the success-seeding commodity was cookie sheets - made in her garage by Cub Scouts and their mothers trying to raise money for a trip to St. Louis. The year was 1995, and the Scouts, including LaPlante's son Danny, sold the bakeware, made from scrap-aluminum blanks at her husband Brooks' business. "We would clip and round the corners of each sheet using a hand-powered press and then stick each end into another wooden press that would bend the two ends into handles," LaPlante recalls in "The Doughmakers Cookbook," which she and her sister, Diane Cuvelier, published earlier this year (ReganBooks, $24.95)

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 résumé. At 15 years old, Richard is fairly sure he wants a life of cue sticks, felt and corner pockets.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- Michael Phelps led by a wing on Sunday afternoon before someone picked him up and threw him farther beyond the front of the pack. That's one way to win a race. The Phelps moving through the waters of the Conococheague Creek did not capture the world's attention with perfect 8-for-8 gold medal performances last week. Instead, it was the Olympic athlete's likeness -- well, as much as can be re-created on a yellow rubber duck -- that turned out for a swim benefiting the American Cancer Society.

It's one of the few instances when shopping for dresses, shoes and accessories is a source of stress, explained 19-year-old Hagerstown Community College student Victoria Hume, a contestant in this year's Miss Maryland Scholarship Pageant. But a little bit of stress now might be well worth the toil later, according to Hume and other local residents competing in the upcoming Miss Maryland Scholarship Pageant. That is, if one of them walks away with the big crown - Miss Maryland. They'll also have a chance to represent the state at the 2010 Miss America competition.

"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.
