Easton resigned as boys basketball coach at Saint James last week following two years of commuting from his home in Herndon, Va. “Making a commute like this takes a toll on you and your family after two years,” Easton said. “It was a tough decision, with the passion for basketball I have, to make. It was more than just about basketball.” The Saints finished 13-14 with a toughened schedule this season following a 17-10 record in Easton's first year after succeeding Mike Brooks.

He said that at age 85, he no longer has the necessary physical strength to lead the world's more than 1 billion Roman Catholics. “I'm very surprised. Yet, when I think about his age and frailty, he's one of the smartest men, so he knows what's best for the Church,” said Father John Lombardi of St. Peter's Catholic Church in Hancock, Md. “I am sad because I and many of the faith have a very high regard for Pope Benedict XVI,” the Rev. J. Collin Poston, pastor of St. Mary Catholic Church in Hagerstown said Monday.
