bobp@herald-mail.com The Capital City Bombers went on a suicide mission on Monday and crashed. The Hagerstown Suns poured on a little of Fred Lewis' gas to make sure the Bombers burned, too. Lewis scored the winning run on Kevin Kelly's two-out single to shallow left field in the ninth inning as Hagerstown capitalized on Capital City's botched suicide squeeze play in the top of the inning for a 4-3 victory. The Suns (52-51, 17-19) scratched out their fourth straight win after losing nine in a row, despite squandering a two-run lead in the ninth.

By DAVID DISHNEAU Associated Press Writer FREDERICK, Md. - Accountant Mary Gaye Fister, deep in debt, tugged on a string tied to the trigger of a 12-gauge shotgun aimed at her head. Nothing happened. She tried again. And again. Nothing. That's when she delegated the job to her business associate. "Let's do it! Let's do it!" she said. "Larry, for the first time in your life, do something right. " "And before I knew, I had pulled the trigger," Lawrence H. Goldman recounted in court Wednesday as he pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter.

Although a study has linked a class of common antidepressant drugs to a greater chance of fractures in older people, people shouldn't just stop taking the medicine, medical experts said. While medical experts dispute whether a consistent link has been proven after several studies, they agree that people on the prescription drug should discuss possible side effects with their doctors and weigh those effects against the benefits of the drug. And senior citizens should, if they haven't already, get a bone density scan, experts said.

Force those with illness to live To the editor: On May 7, there was another assisted suicide out in Michigan that was casually reported by the press. The victim, as are the majority of the "assisted suicides," was suffering from multiple sclerosis. The murderer is presumed to be Jack Kevorkian or one of his disciples. I don't know who makes me angrier. The maniac who kills a mentally unsound and seriously ill person or the fool who asks him to do it. It's a fact that life is difficult and sometimes you're dealt some pretty nasty blows.
