keller@herald-mail.com Ross Ellberg and Charlie Narciso have played in plenty of two-man golf tournaments, but they'd never played one together. So much for having to build team chemistry. The first-time partners shot a 3-under 69 Sunday to finish at 7-under 137 for the weekend and win the Beaver Creek Invitational championship at Beaver Creek Country Club. Ellberg and Narciso started the day in a four-team tie for second in the gross division, two strokes behind Tim Doreen and Bill Calhoun.

Research has shown that eating five servings or more a day of fruits and vegetables can make a significant contribution to lowering blood pressure and improving other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, including stroke. Stroke is the third leading cause of death and the most common cause of disability. In a study published in the January 2006 issue of The Lancet, researchers analyzed results from eight large population studies totaling more than 275,000 people over 13 years to determine the relationship between fruit and vegetable intake and incidence of stroke.

Were not sure exactly when or where you would use a motorized ice chest, but we like wacky, gearhead-type products such as the Crusin Cooler. This icebox is sturdy enough to ride on (it can handle up to 250 pounds perched on the lid), while at the same time transporting the equivalent of 24, 12-ounce beverage cans. Each unit is equipped with your choice of a 300-, 500- and 750-watt electric motor, or a 33-c.c. two-stroke gas engine and a 39-c.c four-stroke gas engine. Also included are disc brakes and a set of retractable foot pegs (a cushion seat is optional)

koelble@herald-mail.com When school opens on Monday, Williamsport will already have a trophy to display in its windows. The Wildcats emerged as Washington County team champion on Wednesday at Black Rock Golf Course, and for good measure, also took medalist honors when Luke Hintze defeated Smithsburg's Riley Ledden in a one-hole playoff. Williamsport, which last won the county title in 2000, posted a 322-stroke team total to dethrone two-time defending champion Smithsburg, which finished second at 326. Boonsboro and North Hagerstown tied with 346, South Hagerstown was next at 374 and Clear Spring sixth with 449. "This was the first tournament of the year, and with the wind and pressure of this being a tournament, the scores were high," Williamsport coach Rod Steiner said.

Kristin Boyd hopes the steps taken Sunday during the 2012 Mason Dixon Heart and Stroke Walk lead to strides in research that could save her 3-year-old son's life. “They're giving him three to five years to live. There currently is no cure, so we're hoping raising funds will help to find a cure,” Boyd said. The Boyd family, of Hagerstown, served as the walk's “Red Cap” family in support of the American Heart Association. Young Collin Boyd has hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a congenital defect that caused the left side of his heart not to develop.

 For many 21st-century Americans, mention the banjo and the image that often comes to mind is a white man in overalls playing bluegrass or a similar style of music. But George Wunderlich, executive director at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine, said that image isn't an accurate depiction of the original instrument. Wunderlich, who is also a banjo aficionado, said the style of banjo music from the Civil-War era will ring through the grounds of the Pry House Field Hospital on Antietam National Battlefield, from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 23, during a banjo concert.
