This week is always the week I least look forward to each year. I've taken to calling it "Hell Week. " It's the week I gather stats and make the selections for The Herald-Mail All-Area baseball and softball teams. The teams will appear this weekend - softball on Saturday, baseball on Sunday. Gathering the information is simple enough - usually all it takes to get what I need is a handful of phone calls to area coaches. Sifting through and analyzing the information in an attempt to make the best possible decisions is the difficult part.

Lynn Lerew doesn't believe in theme nights. Instead, Lerew, in his 35th season as director of the Hagerstown Municipal Band, selects a variety of musical pieces for each Sunday evening concert. With 10 to 11 selections each concert, hopefully audiences enjoy most pieces, said Lerew, 67, who lives in Chambersburg, Pa. The band kicks off its free summer concert series this Sunday at the Peter Buys Band Shell in Hagerstown's City Park. This Sunday's program includes the overture from the opera "Merry Wives of Windsor"; selections from "Annie Get Your Gun"; and "Fandango," an exciting Latin American number that Lerew said the band and audience enjoy.

At last season's Washington County Indoor Track Championships, Williamsport came from behind to edge North Hagerstown 161-159 for its seventh straight girls team title. "I have high hopes that we'll be better than second this year," said first-year North head coach Brian Myers, who took over for Sarina Hamilton. The Hubs have reason to dream big. With nearly all of their top performers back from last season, they clearly look like the team to beat in the county this winter.

The Washington Redskins' attempt to improve their biggest weakness centers on a player who needs to figure out when to take his chances. The reigning NFC East champions selected David Amerson of North Carolina State in the second round of the NFL draft Friday, a choice aimed at helping a secondary that ranked 30th in the league against the pass last year. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound cornerback set a single-season Atlantic Coast Conference record with 13 interceptions in 2011 and won the Jack Tatum Award as the nation's top defensive back, but his play regressed last year as he tried to do even better.

You know, I've been doing this media thing for a little time now. Those of you that know me know my dome is bathed in gray as I continue my trek into the 60s, and I don't mean the year. At times I've done television, at times I've done radio, but for the most part it's been behind the desk working in the print business. As you know, or may not, at the end of a prep sports season a newspaper generally selects all-star teams for specific sports. It takes time putting the teams together, believe me. It's not that you just throw names into a hat and presto.
