tarar@herald-mail.com Marilyn Radatz spent most of her 45 minutes in the baby doll aisle at Target on Saturday morning. Radatz, a Hagerstown Jaycees member, was chaperone to an elementary-aged girl, Victoria, who pondered whether she wanted "Bratz" dolls, a "Rock-a-Bye" doll or toy baby clothing to put on the Rock-a-Bye. Earlier, a boy revealed his excitement as he spotted a "Yu-Gi-Oh!" game. "I love Yu-Gi-Oh! I love Yu-Gi-Oh!," the boy said as he jumped up and down while holding the box. Twenty-four children went on a 45-minute shopping spree at Target, near Valley Mall, sponsored by the Hagerstown Jaycees.

"I'm going to buy a computer, printer, maybe a SEGA system, and a new bike," Rohm said, glancing at her parents, Keith and Dorothy, who nodded in agreement. "And maybe a Nintendo," her brother, Brian, 11, interrupted. As the grand-prize winner in the contest, Rohm and her family also get an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles and Hollywood.

ROUZERVILLE, Pa. -- How much money can a 6-year-old spend in 15 minutes? $854.50. Nathan Rhodes, 6, had all of Wal-Mart's merchandise available to him Sunday in a shopping spree organized by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He threw items into shopping carts so fast the associates scanning bar codes could hardly keep up. When finished, Nathan walked to the cash register with at least three shopping carts full of merchandise, two bicycles and a ride-on toy car behind him. Soon he was handed the Nintendo DSi that was his prized purchase.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Rashaun Hann entered PetSmart on Monday with a shopping list already cemented in her mind. Her first stop was the aisle full of dog clothing, so she could get her beagle mix, Mikey, a coat to help stop his wintertime shivering. Next she grabbed a pirate Halloween costume on her way to the harnesses in various sizes and colors. Rashaun, 16, of Fort Loudon, Pa., needed no assistance making decisions on her Make-A-Wish shopping spree. A volunteer said "it's your day" and gave Rashaun control of the experience.
