julieg@herald-mail.com Dear Aunt Mary, Thank you for the beautiful knit sweater. I wore it the other day and received several compliments from my co-workers. The color goes great with my hair, and it's toasty warm. Sorry we didn't get to see each other this holiday season, but I'm looking forward to our visit later this year. Love, Catherine That doesn't seem too difficult. A short note and a 39-cent stamp - or a 24-cent stamp if you use a postcard - can mean a lot to the person who gives a gift.

John Lee Hooker Jr.'s live shows are, like his life, unscripted. The son of a legendary jazzman, Hooker created his own style and sound. "I didn't have to go and carve myself out of a shadow, carve the John Lee Hooker style off of me. Everything is natural," Hooker says. How did he come up with his lively style? "The same way I was born. I didn't go into a lab and try this potion. It's just me, naturally. " The vocalist and his band, whom he refers to as his "weapons of mass destruction," are one of two headlining acts Saturday at the 11th annual Western Maryland Blues Fest.

John and Horace Dodge could have never imagined what would transpire. That two brothers' dreams would turn into one solid deal, that would turn into another venture, that would eventually turn into an auto empire. The Dodge brothers could barely see tomorrow. They were too concerned with making the most of today. You could see it in their brashness, their toughness and the deal-making, saloon-wrecking style that was the stuff of Detroit automotive legends. Their success would begin so fast.

When Dale Deyoung was in her late teens, she listened mostly to bluegrass and folk music on vinyl records. Then, she “moved on to other things,” she said. On Saturday, when the 52-year-old Baltimore resident headed out for a bike ride along the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal towpath in Hancock with friends and family, she unwittingly rolled back to her bluegrass roots. About a dozen area bluegrass musicians - or “pickers,” as they are known - had gathered on the porch of the historic Bowles House on the banks of the canal flatpicking and stacking harmonies at a free, old-style Bluegrass Porch Pickin'.

A tall white tower recently popped up at Fairgrounds Park in Hagerstown. What is it for? Scott Nicewarner, the city's director of technology and support services, said in an email that the structure is a flagpole-style cellular tower being built by Shenandoah Personal Communications Co., also known as Shentel. “It is being done to expand the capacity of the tower, as well as to clean up and better secure the area around the tower,” he said. Two smaller metal towers are situated next to the new tower, but they are being used temporarily to maintain cell signals while the main tower is completed, Nicewarner said.

Bo Myers would like his career to be summed up in one sentence. “I just want to be known for getting something done,” the Hagerstown Community College athletic director said. But to do Myers any justice, his time in the Washington County educational system is best signified by two words: Hooray and Oo-Rah. They are the best adjectives to describe the paths and methods he chose to follow in his life, as an advocate for education and a coach of track disciplines. He has attacked each with passion.

Robert Fink Jr. will be trying to get things straight by taking a different angle. For years, Smithsburg's Fink has tried to advance in the national Punt, Pass and Kick tournament by taking on the competition straight on. But now, in his third attempt to get out of the team competition phase, he's going to take a different route. On a whim, Fink has adopted a soccer-style approach to placekicking the ball, which has produced far better results as he prepares to vie as one of three 12-13 year olds to represent the Washington Redskins on the national level.
