Owings, 20, of Maugansville, showed up early Saturday at Leitersburg Ruritan Community Park ready to do the day right. The annual attendee said she first likes to hit the vendor booths.

They parked blocks away after driving, for many of them, more than an hour to Hagerstown's Municipal Stadium on Sunday. They came to see Stephen Strasburg. The phenom. The $15.1 million No. 1 overall pick of the Washington Nationals in the 2009 draft. The one who had hearts racing when he struck out 14 batters in his major league debut in June 2010 and later had hearts breaking when he injured his right elbow that August and had to have Tommy John surgery. The pitcher who skipped Single-A ball on his way to the majors had Municipal Stadium so packed for his first rehab assignment on Sunday afternoon that one couldn't walk to a seat without squeezing through a crowd of people.

A Hagerstown pharmacist has been prohibited from dispensing drugs classified as controlled dangerous substances following allegations that he filled thousands of prescriptions for Oxycodone, OxyContin, methadone and other powerful painkillers written by two physicians whose licenses were subsequently suspended. The Maryland Board of Pharmacy voted on Dec. 22, 2010, to summarily suspend the license of David Russo, owner of Russo's Rx at 25 N. Cannon Ave. "There has since been a consent agreement by which my license has been restored, but I cannot dispense controlled dangerous substances," Russo said Tuesday.
