Gravity and goo landed a one-two punch on Saturday, keeping people on their toes - and backs - in conditions that simply would be described as messy. It was the 2011 MUDD Volleyball Tournament, benefiting the Community Free Clinic of Washington County. And in this event, participants were encouraged to play dirty. About 700 people splashed, belly-flopped and sometimes got stuck in 6 inches of slimy water - all for a good cause. The day-long tournament was expected to raise more than $40,000, said Robin Roberson, the clinic's executive director.

HAGERSTOWN - Sitting at the desk in her YMCA office, Karen Meinelschmidt, who teaches swimming lessons, recalled a telephone conversation she had in October. A mother described how her 4-year-old son rescued himself when he fell into their backyard swimming pool while trying to get his toy boat. "When I heard that story, that made it all worthwhile," Meinelschmidt said. Meinelschmidt, the aquatics director at the YMCA in Hagerstown, has been teaching parent-to-child swimming classes for 40 years.

Eager anglers stood elbow-to-elbow around Red Run Lake on Saturday hoping to catch one of the 600 trout during the first annual John Kahl Memorial Trout Rodeo. Waynesboro Area Senior High School senior Grant Calimer came up with the idea for the trout rodeo in Rouzerville for his senior project. "For your senior project, you can job shadow, you can build something or you can do something for the community. I decided to do this, because I wanted to try to instill a lifelong love of fishing into kids," Grant said.
