Sparky is an 11-year-old Dalmation who had been a member of a family. Unfortunately, his family has moved to an apartment that does not allow pets. He loves affection and his tail doesn't stop wagging when he's being petted. It's obvious he was well cared for but could stand to lose a pound or two. Pet tip: Training classes work A training class offers an opportunity to enhance the bond with your dog. Positive training can allow you to control your companion's behavior safely and humanely.

When I was a girl, I used to watch "The Young and the Restless" with my mom. She didn't feel good about it, but it was the one hour out of her hectic day as a working wife and mother of five that she indulged herself in a guilty pleasure. I guess the benefit of escape outweighed the concerns. Nikki Newman would head for the shower with an illicit lover sporting nothing but a carefully placed bath towel. "Don't look," my mom would say.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - For Saturday's AMA Flat Track Championship at Hagerstown Speedway, Donna Ardinger had a prime seat near the track. Her grandson, Desean, 5, had the same view - from his grandmother's lap. Although Desean said he prefers dirt bikes because of their "wheelies," this wasn't the night for that. Rather, this was racing, pure and powerful, at speeds that would attract immediate police attention on the outside roads. The race brought about 10 bikers from Williamsport, Pa., who have been making the men-only - and Harley-Davidson-only - trips for five years or so. The group included mechanic and excavator Jon Jordan; Mike Sullivan, who owns Hughesville, Pa.'s only full-service gas station; and Brian Minier, who has a logging business.
