Every second counts in the sport of cross country, and Saturday was a big day of seconds for Washington County boys at the Maryland state championships at Hereford High School - in more ways than one. Senior Evan Hardy placed second in the Class 2A race, leading Williamsport to a second-place team finish, while Smithsburg junior Luke Daigneault finished second in Class 1A. “I'm really disappointed that I didn't win,” Hardy said. “But I'd take second any day as long as the team got second instead of third or fourth.” The Williamsport boys, who haven't won a team title at states since 1975, hadn't placed as high as second since 1978.

The station has gotten support from a few members of Congress, including U.S. Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin, D-Md.

Lindsay Pinieski said she was devastated a little more than a year ago when her husband, Zack, was diagnosed with cancer. But things started to look brighter after chemotherapy treatments drove the disease into remission. The Hagerstown family's fortunes changed again on July 1, when Zack lost his job as an aircraft modifier at Sierra Nevada. The Pinieskis were hit even harder a few days later when their youngest daughter, 2-year-old Allison, got sick during a family trip to Port Discovery in Baltimore.

Challenges? Obstacles? Keri-Jon Faulkner has had her share. But she never has allowed them to sideline her from making her dreams come true. And her biggest dream, she said, was receiving a good education. When she missed a lot of time in high school and failed to receive a diploma, Faulkner didn't give up. She worked hard and received her GED. When she wanted to attend college, but there were no funds, she stayed determined and spent five years saving her money.

I thought I died and went to Indiana on Tuesday night. This isn’t so much a conversation about my final resting place. If I went in the wrong direction it would be like living in Gary, though. This is more of a cinematic reference. It was the feeling I had while watching Heritage Academy face Broadfording Christian Academy in a battle for the Mason Dixon Christian Conference lead. While watching the style and flavor of the game unfold, I felt like I was in Hickory High School, the subject of the classic basketball flick, Hoosiers.

A federal judge Tuesday sentenced a former Martinsburg attorney to five years of probation for her part in an alleged scheme to be paid for court-appointed work that was not done. Heidi J. Silver Myers, 32, pleaded guilty in April 2010, to one count of aiding and abetting mail fraud and one count of aiding and abetting wire fraud, but the court deferred acceptance of the plea until sentencing. Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul T. Camilletti told U.S. District Court Chief Judge John Preston Bailey in Tuesday's sentencing hearing that since entering the plea, Myers provided "substantial" assistance to the government in preparing to prosecute co-defendant, Nancy P. Burkhart.
