It’s been said that timing is everything. The South Hagerstown softball team had timing issues all afternoon Thursday — from timing the opponent’s pitcher to untimely miscues and aggressiveness on the bases. And in the end, it was timely hitting on the part of Kennedy, which got a pair of bases-loaded singles in the top of the seventh inning to rally for a 12-11 win over the Rebels in the first round of the Maryland Class 3A West playoffs at South. “We didn’t have much emotion,” said South coach Angie Jeffries.

The timing of Saddam Hussein's execution, rather than the act itself, concerned Hagerstown physician Shahab Siddiqui, an active member of the Islamic Society of Western Maryland. The execution occurred on the eve of the Islamic holiday Eid al-Adha, the Muslim feast of sacrifice, and at a time when millions of Muslims were making a pilgrimage, or hajj, to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. "The timing of this is very odd and wrong," Siddiqui said, comparing it to Westerners conducting an execution on Christmas.

"Playing against Martinsburg is always a good game because of the talent and numbers they have," said Mercersburg coach Peter Kempe.

The spirit of a Sept. 11, 2001, commemoration Sunday afternoon prompted Betty L. Bitner to make an impromptu decision and place a sentimental possession in a time capsule. Bitner, of Chambersburg, put a coin on top of the items already packed into the time capsule, which will be opened in 2021. She had carried the coin for the past several years since her parents died. The coin has a message on it about God carrying people in difficult times. The concept resonated with Bitner as she reflected on the nearly 3,000 people killed in terrorist attacks 12 years ago. “As I think of this, it's symbolic these people went home to their Lord,” she said.
