Things aren't what they used to be. OK. That's not a profound statement. Everything is in a constant flow of change, Municipal Stadium notwithstanding. Nothing stands still in the world of business or in the sports we watch. Changes are dramatic, no matter how far you look back. Graduates of 2013 will be facing a completely different world compared to this guy, who left high school in 1976 and sneaked out of college in 1980. Today's lessons are already obsolete. The ones this guy learned have fossilized.

The 2012 legislative session is still five months away, but if it wasn't clear before, recent events should remind all local office-holders and other interested parties with business before the General Assembly that it is not too soon to begin coordinating their efforts for the benefit of the people of Washington County. Local senior citizens were stung last week by the news that funding for a new senior center will be delayed into 2012, which should be a warning shot of things to come if we don't rally our troops.

HAGERSTOWN Rapport is a really weird word to say, according to Blake Lyles.

Local professionals and businessmen teamed up with Suns players to give presentations to about 45 children. Rapport, teamwork, communication and ethics were covered in four separate sessions.

Minor league baseball is a "here today, gone tomorrow" proposition. The majority of players come and go through towns across the country, playing for one season at each rung in a quest to make the major leagues. Their impact is minimal. A player's batting average or pitching record leaves a more lasting impression on local fans than the player himself. The New York Mets organization would like to make the stays in places like Hagerstown more memorable - and educational - for players and fans alike.

TRI-STATE -- Athletes tend to be a loyal bunch. The good ones believe in teamwork, working hard, learning their trade and doing everything in their power to be successful. The goal is to win for the home team. Many learn to win, lose and how to play the game on the high school level. Lessons learned and coaches met along the way can deeply affect them. A lucky few use what they learn to remain in sports on the college and professional levels. Others apply those lessons to their lives and careers as they become adults.

There's a scene in “The Sound of Music” that came to mind last weekend. The scene captures the children's personalities as Maria meets them for the first time.     The Captain has the children line up and step forward as he makes each one's sound on his whistle. They state their names, ages and tell Maria a little bit about themselves.   Louisa, the 13-year-old, tries to pass for Brigitta, one of the younger girls. She wants to see if Maria was paying attention when they were first introduced.

While a lot has changed in the realm of accounting since Smith Elliott Kearns & Co. LLC was established five decades ago, one vital element has remained constant. “The accounting profession has always been deemed to be the most trusted adviser,” said John R. Schnitzer, managing member, in a phone interview from Hanover, Pa., where he lives. “We have a very close bond with our clients that has been very fulfilling and very rewarding.” Schnitzer is the company's fourth managing member, which he said is the equivalent of a chief executive officer.

Franceine Jones knew she wasn’t going to be able to get through her speech at the Sunday afternoon dedication for her new home, a Habitat for Humanity of Washington County project. When she did break down in tears, dozens of people picked up where she stopped, reading from printed copies of her words. The moment was symbolic of the effort it took to build the three-bedroom house, with approximately 200 volunteers stepping in to construct a home for Jones and her son, Jakerian, 15. “Working together,” as Jones put it after the dedication for the home at the corner of Linwood Road and Wellington Avenue.

Baseball is a team game. Three all-star teams -- the Halfway 11-12s, Conococheague Juniors and Maugansville Seniors -- all found that out in time to advance to state tournament play this weekend. Halfway learned its lesson the hard way, needing a loss early in the District 1 tournament to be convinced that winning is a group effort. Halfway lost 4-3 to Valley and worked its way through the losers' bracket, culminating with a two-game sweep of defending state champion Conococheague to win its first district title since 1999.

SMITHSBURG -- What makes the 2009 Smithsburg volleyball team great? As the undefeated Class 1A West region champions prepare to face 1A South champion Surrattsville (14-2) tonight at 6 at Ritchie Coliseum on the University of Maryland at College Park campus, one could argue it's junior superstar Sara Rishell. After all, Rishell led Washington County with her averages of 6.12 kills and 1.54 blocks per game and was second on the team with 3.02 digs per game. But here's another viewpoint: Smithsburg's true greatness lies in the other players' ability to selflessly accept and execute their given roles.

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Anne Larsen says being an artist has been romanticized into someone who is a lonely, isolated worker. But Larsen says during the time of the masters, art was created in collaboration. Oftentimes, she says, one apprentice might paint the trees, while another apprentice who specialized in tapestries would do his part, but the main subjects would be completed by the master artist himself. The result would be a masterpiece. It wasn't until recently that the idea has changed.
