firstname.lastname@example.org HAGERSTOWN - For Grant Whitaker, Hagerstown has one big advantage over St. Louis: hockey. Grant, 10, is in his second year in the Hagerstown Youth Hockey Association. He's still learning the game's finer points. Grant's grandparents, Richard and Pam Thierry, who are raising him, said the move has done Grant a lot of good athletically, socially and academically. They moved from St. Louis to a house north of Hagerstown in July 2003 so Grant, who is deaf, could attend the Maryland School for the Deaf in Frederick, Md. Pam Thierry said she likes the fact that the school has a challenging curriculum, which isn't true of some schools for the deaf.
