In addition to decreasing water and energy consumption, you help us reduce the amount of detergents entering our water system. Please hang up the towels if you wish to participate in this program - if not, simply leave them on the floor.

It's not your fault. You don't know what you don't know. When you got your health club membership, you went through the standard sales presentation from the sales guy, the "three free sessions" with one of the club trainers, and then you were thrown in the deep end of the proverbial pool without a set of floaties. You learned how to use the machines, what the child care hours were and what day the gym will take your money every month. Through all this, you never learned what is commonly considered proper gym etiquette until "Joe the Bench Presser" is all over you for a flagrant violation of one or a few. Here are the most violated rules of gym etiquette, and how to be a courteous exerciser: Personal hygiene No one likes to work beside a stinky person.

HAGERSTOWN -- The rough-and-tough rivalry football game Sunday between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens was highlighted locally by hundreds of fans of both teams who turned out at the HagerHall Conference and Event Center for a party. A big party. An estimated 430 people filled a large conference hall to watch the game on a big-screen television that was as big as the stage in the room. Steelers fans and Ravens fans were divided down the center of the room for the AFC Championship Game, although Steelers fans appeared to be the bigger presence, making up about 65 percent of the spectators, said Michael Malone, part owner of the conference center at 901 Dual Highway.

"We need to leave by a quarter 'til four, so make sure you're ready," I told my daughter as I walked through the kitchen on a recent Sunday. After delivering an item to another room, I returned to the kitchen to find her still looking at the clock. "What time is a quarter 'til four, Mommy?" "Quarter 'til four is a time, dear," I said distractedly, hurrying on to the next task. Still she stared at the clock. I noticed her finger moving in the air, stopping at five-minute intervals, with her lips silently mouthing the numbers.
