Brendon Colbert is the North Hagerstown wrestling team's version of Derek Jeter. The Hubs - and the New York Yankees - can go a lot of places with a strong play in the leadoff position. Colbert was in the position he had been accustomed to over the years as the first wrestler out of the gate for the Hubs on Wednesday. He hit a homer to send North on its way to a 53-22 victory over Boonsboro in an MVAL Antietam match. Colbert, two years removed from his 112-pound days for the Hubs, was first on the mat with a 138-pound starting bout and pinned Dalton Hawkins in 5:06 to set the tone for North with the 99th victory of his career.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- The $1 million promised to Jefferson County after the introduction of table games at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races could be in jeopardy because of a "misinterpretation" of the legislation that set up the funding, county officials said Friday. The Jefferson County Commissioners and the county's five municipalities are supposed to share the money, with half going to the commissioners and half to the municipalities based on population. "We've already budgeted our $500,000, and the municipalities are in the same boat," County Commissioner Patsy Noland said.

Dear Lynne: My wife and I debate constantly about whether you should preheat the oven. Can you give us the right answer? -- Joseph from Georgia Dear Joseph: Not to embarrass either of you, but what an invitation this is to fallen cakes, gooey biscuits, overdone meat and all sorts of culinary calamity. The right answer: Always preheat the oven for 20 minutes, or however long it takes to reach the temperature called for. And always use an oven thermometer to be sure the temperature is where you want it, since many of our ovens go out of calibration.
