The building was sold in 2009 after the factory closed.

The Hagerstown Suns starred in a situation comedy on Friday. They played to the situations of the game and practically turned it into a comedy. Aaron Seuss had three hits and drove in six runs -- four coming on a sixth-inning grand slam -- after Bill Rhinehart started it all off with a two-run homer in the first to lead the Suns to a 12-3 victory over West Virginia. "We had a meeting before the game about situational hitting to give you a chance to do things," Suns manager Darnell Coles said.

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Nick Novak is probably one of those guys who have been reincarnated five or six times over the years. Through history, the University of Maryland place-kicker has probably been an oil well fireman, a kamikaze pilot, a riverboat gambler and maybe even Houdini himself. Novak is the kind of guy who is used to having his feet - or in this case foot - put to the fire for the sole purpose of getting positive results. But it's that life-on-the-edge kind of adrenaline rush he seems to thrive on these days.

White House Clinton's home only for a while Apparently the current flap over whether the White House was being used as a tool to raise funds for the Democrat National Committee has gotten our President in an uproar. To quote, in regards to renting out the Lincoln bedroom to his friends, "The people I had going to the Lincoln Bedroom were the people I wanted to go the bedroom...It's my house, and I can have over to my house anybody I want. I live there and I love having people there.

INWOOD, W.Va. - Zach Collis is the type of guy who relaxes while propping his feet up on a land mine. In the eyes of Musselman baseball coach Jeff Cunningham, the senior lefthander is fearless. That's why Collis was used in the most calming of situations on Wednesday. Like with the bases loaded and one out with a two-run lead in the fourth. Collis came on and took the wind out of the Keyser Golden Tornado by shutting them down in the attempted rally and striking out eight in 3 2/3 innings work in a 4-2 Musselman victory to give the Applemen a 1-0 lead in the West Virginia Class AAA Region II Section 1 best-of-3 playoff series.

This Syria “thing” really has me perplexed. Really, it has me frightened. I'm frightened because our nation and our nation's leaders do not seem to have a direction or a plan to deal with this international crisis. First, if we are to believe our intelligence agencies and world news reports, Syrians used chemical weapons two years ago during their “civil war.” International and domestic news agencies reported this incident (or according to some reports “incidents”). At that time, it was debatable as to whether the chemical weapons were used by the seated government of Syria or by the “rebel” forces seeking to overthrow the seated government.  I have used the word “seated” to define the government in power, although there is no evidence, that I have uncovered, that the seated government was elected.

Kathleen Dorman talked Sunday about her days abusing cocaine and how she was “headed in all the wrong places.” Dorman - speaking during an adult education commencement at Hagerstown Community College - said she was told that she was never going to amount to anything and for seven years, she prayed to God for help. That help arrived in the form of a husband who she now credits with being an “angel” in her life. Dorman moved to Hagerstown from Baltimore and began seeking her high school diploma with help from the Washington County Family Center.

Washington County Sheriff Douglas W. Mullendore and the chiefs of police from four Washington County municipalities testified Tuesday at a senate committee hearing in support of a bill that, if passed, would let a sheriff appoint municipal law enforcement officers as special sheriff's deputies. Mullendore said municipal boundaries in the county are fragmented and it is not possible for a municipal law enforcement officer to know what areas are exactly in their jurisdiction. Cases have been jeopardized in court because “the wrong unit” responded outside their municipal borders, said Sen. Christopher B. Shank, R-Washington, who has introduced the bill in the Senate.

Chris Watson, 38, a construction worker from Baltimore County, Md., has spent most of his life learning and practicing skills necessary to survive after some catastrophic event or in a prolonged degeneration of society's structure.

Little League parents would have made Rodney Dangerfield cringe. They would be the worst nightmare for the late, great comedian, especially if part of his schtick missed the mark. “Tough crowd,” he would utter. “I get no respect.” When it comes to Little League - more specifically all-star tournament season - there is very little respect to be handed out. That's what makes the old-school style of people like Larry Hammond so refreshing. Hammond is the Maryland District 1 Little League administrator, clearly a Dangerfield-esque position.

North Hagerstown coach Greg Slick is quick to temper the excitement about his wrestling team this season. “Everybody hyped up those Philadelphia Eagles in the beginning of the year, and they didn't quite pan out,” he said. The Hubs might not be the “dream team,” but they potentially could be very good. Eight starters are back from last season's team that went 13-8 in dual meets and finished second in the Washington County tournament. The returnees include all four of their Maryland Class 2A-1A state qualifiers from last season - seniors Kenneth Burrs and Duncan Yeisley, junior Mike Tobery and sophomore Brendon Colbert - and all three of their county champions - Yeisley, Colbert and senior Connor McHose.
