The Washington County Historical Society couldn't pass up using the 100th anniversary of the Titanic striking an iceberg as the theme of its fundraiser Saturday night at Fountain Head Country Club in Hagerstown. From gastronomic delights on the Titanic's menu to carved iceberg statues, the historical society spared no details to make the night as authentic as possible - without the loss of 1,522 lives, of course. Linda Irvin-Craig, executive director of the Washington County Historical Society, said the Mad Hatters' Ball, as the annual fundraiser is called, generates the most revenue of all the organization's fundraising events.

Jean Cotten was born 12 years after her aunt, Jessie Bruce Trout, died. So, she never learned firsthand the ordeal her aunt endured as one of the 713 survivors of the R.M.S. Titanic. But that didn't stop her from hearing plenty of stories. “The family talked about it all my life,” Cotten said. “We were told everything that you read about. We heard all the gory stuff about how frightened she was, how dark, how cold it was and of seeing the lights as the ship went down.” Cotten said Jessie's lifeboat, No. 9, was about a half-mile away when the Titanic sank in the Atlantic on a moonless night 100 years ago Saturday.

Editor's note: Tim Rowland is on vacation. In his absence, we're rerunning a column that was originally published Dec. 22, 1997. When I was a boy, someone gave me a tattered, brown-covered copy of a book about the wreck of the Titanic. I was fascinated. Tragedies play differently on small minds than on grown-up minds and I found the fact that so many people lost their lives under dark, icy circumstances to be really neat. On reflection, it's probably not that the mind changes all that much as it matures but that civilization allows youngsters to be enthralled by senseless death, under the false assumption they will grow up to know better.

By LAURA ERNDE Staff Writer When the credits roll on the movie "Titanic," look for John Heller's name. The Hagerstown native helped to create special effects for the $200 million movie about the 1912 sinking of the British liner. Heller, 28, put computer-generated stars in the movie's arctic sky. Because the climactic scene in which the ship sinks was filmed in the warm waters of Mexico, Heller had to simulate cold weather by adding misty breath. "It's all done in the computer," said Heller, who works for Blue Sky VIFX in Los Angeles, a division of 20th Century Fox. Heller uses a $2 million computer loaded with a software program called Inferno.

Monday night's matchup between the last two Maryland Class 2A state champions - Century (2011) and Williamsport (2012) - was so close, a net-cord ace late in the fifth set helped decide it. Fortunately for the Wildcats, they were on the right end of it. It gave them a 14-12 lead, and Lindsey Mowbray's kill two points later gave Williamsport a 25-20, 25-18, 23-25, 20-25, 15-13 victory in the season opener for two teams that could very well meet again...

Robert Griffin III handled the coin toss, and Kirk Cousins picked up where he left off last season filling in at quarterback for Washington. Cousins threw for a touchdown and missed only one pass as the Redskins edged the Tennessee Titans 22-21 Thursday night in their preseason opener. The Redskins sat eight starters, including Griffin, who warmed up and was on the field dressed. Cousins looked sharp in Griffin's place, completing six of seven passes for 52 yards and a TD for a 137.2 passer rating in two series for the defending NFC East champs.

The Williamsport baseball team did all of the necessary little things to pull out a 5-3 win over the Tuscarora Titans on Wednesday. “We didn't swing the bats great,” Wildcats coach Dave Warrenfeltz said. “But we had some good at-bats to get baserunners and to move them around. I also thought that we really played well defensively.” Warrenfeltz said his pitching staff held its own. “I thought we pitched really well,” Warrenfeltz added. “Today was Ryan Boward's first start since his injury.

"Wrath of the Titans" is an excellent reason why audiences shouldn't throw money at bad movies. I'm not even talking about this film, which is doing deservedly poorly against the second week of "The Hunger Games. " I'm talking about "Clash of the Titans," which spent two weeks at No. 1 back in 2010, ultimately making more than $160 million domestically. In its first weekend alone it made upwards of $60 million, owing in no small part to that weekend being Easter and the film getting to take advantage of holiday crowds.

Despite North Hagerstown's best efforts, the Hubs were no match for Tuscarora in Thursday's boys lacrosse game at Mike Callas Stadium. Behind Cameron Maluchnik's four goals, the Titans ran away with an 11-3 victory. Tuscarora held a slim 4-2 advantage heading into the third quarter, but the Titans blew the game open in a hurry, netting five goals in the period. Behind a steady barrage of shots, John Cappolella scored two goals while Joey Allen, A.J. Shipman and Maluchnik added one goal each.
