The Hagerstown Suns have spent an entire season proving that size doesn't matter. The Suns haven't been the biggest team on the block, but they have been able to rule the South Atlantic League Northern Division playground for much of the season. The same could be said about the crowds supporting the Suns at Municipal Stadium. They have been a small, hearty group that shows muscle when needed. That is what the Suns will be looking for Friday night. Hagerstown hosts Game 2 of the Northern Division playoffs at 7:05 p.m. with a chance to move into the SAL championship series with a win over West Virginia.

Washington County's newest public library can't be more than 4 square feet - but that's precisely the idea. It looks almost like an oversized birdhouse atop a wooden post, tucked away behind Hebron Mennonite Church on Highlane Street in Hagerstown. Although the handcrafted library is small, it does not stand alone - it's part of a global initiative known as the Little Free Library, which began in Hudson, Wis., in 2009. Thanks to the efforts of Hebron Mennonite Church members Ginger Gates, project coordinator, and Betty Willson, director of community life for the church, the library was erected in April, after congregation member Mike Martin finished constructing it from recycled materials, including a roof made of flattened aluminum soda cans.

It was seeing Michael Jackson perform the moonwalk that changed everything for a young Baltimore boy. “It was something about that moment that was kind of magical,” said SisQo during a telephone interview from his Maryland home. He had just gotten back from performing in Kuwait and Dubai.  Raised in Baltimore, SisQo was 4 years old when he saw Jackson perform the dance move during the 1983 “Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever” television special.  “The way I felt when I saw him do that, I knew that's what I wanted to do, make somebody have that same feeling,” he said.
