By TOM STUCKEY Associated Press Writer ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Legislation to make the unpopular treadmill automobile emissions test voluntary instead of mandatory won final approval in the House of Delegates Monday, handing Gov. Parris Glendening a tricky political problem. If Glendening signs the bill, he risks the loss of federal funds. If he vetoes it, he could anger voters who might retaliate when they go to the polls in next year's gubernatorial election. The governor declined to commit Monday.

A Hagerstown woman has filed a claim against the Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program saying its treadmill tests damaged her daughter's car. The Motor Vehicle Administration says the claim has not been resolved because its inspectors have not been allowed to examine the car. Kathy Rhodes says the 1985 Dodge Lancer stopped dead shortly after failing a test at the VEIP station northwest of Hagerstown on March 20. "We got as far as the...

Editor's note: This is the fourth story in a six-part series about some of the people who will compete in the JFK 50 Mile ultramarathon Saturday in Washington County. HAGERSTOWN -- The first time Misti Teets ran the JFK 50 Mile ultramarathon, she remembers other runners asking her how many marathons she had run as they chugged up hills and over rocky terrain. Her answer must have come as a surprise. Not only had Teets never run a marathon before attempting the endurance feat in 2006, she never had run more than five miles at a time, and her training consisted primarily of running on a treadmill at the local YMCA.

charlestown@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - In 26 years in the auction business, George Lemaster said he has never seen anything like it. During a two-day auction starting Friday, Lemaster will oversee the sale of a rare collection of farm and home implements that give a peek into life during the 1800s and 1900s. The collection is the work of Martinsburg resident Olin Pryor, who started acquiring the items in about 1975. "I knew when I retired, I needed some kind of hobby," said Pryor, who retired from General Motors in Martinsburg in 1989.

By GUY FLETCHER Staff Writer There is one thing Anne S. Ferro does not deny about Maryland's treadmill vehicle emissions test - a lot of people don't like it. But Ferro, administrator of the state Motor Vehicle Administration, insisted that most of the fear and loathing is more hype than substance. "What we've heard are not complaints from people who've had the test. What we've heard are complaints from people who object to the concept of the test," said Ferro, who was in Hagerstown Tuesday.

As I was leaving the office one particularly horrible day last week, someone made the mistake of asking me how I was. I glared at her. "Nevermind," she said. "No, I want to tell you," I said. "I feel like I've been on a very fast treadmill all day. I mean, it's not every day you get to write about both a CIA officer and an obnoxious turkey harassing a small child, is it? My brain is dead. I can't think. I've been running all over the county. "Like I said, I feel like I've been on a very, very fast treadmill.

By GUY FLETCHER Staff Writer ANNAPOLIS - Maryland motorists angry with the state's enhanced vehicle emissions test spotted a ray of hope Tuesday when the state Senate approved a bill that would keep the controversial treadmill test optional. But the fate of the legislation remains unclear. Some lawmakers and Gov. Parris N. Glendening warn of possible tough federal sanctions, such as the loss of highway transportation funds, if the bill becomes law and the dynamometer test isn't made mandatory.

Dear Fitness Answer Man: I've been active on and off for my entire life. I ran track in high school and played front yard sports with my kids. I'm 51 now and I notice I've been less active in the past few years as my workload has increased. I'm 5 feet 10 inches tall and about 25 pounds overweight, and I hate lifting weights or running on treadmills. Is there anything I can do to improve my fitness and keep in shape at my local park or in my neighborhood? - Getting Dumpy in Hagerstown Dear Dumpy: Before I begin, let me say congratulations for taking action.

Hmmm. Time: 35 minutes. Incline: 4.0 percent. Speed: 3.5 mph. Its treadmill time again. I'll turn my mind on autopilot while marching in place. Hey, maybe I'll come up with a column while in the altered state. I'll let it wander and make no sense. … No one will ever know the difference. Here goes nothing. Ummm. I don't know why, but I have the urge to write about Martinsburg football coach David Walker or former Shepherd women's basketball coach Jodie Runner … Runner on first and second and Bryce Harper is up.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- The treadmill whirred while Jessica Dickey ran at the gym in New York City on Monday, Oct. 2, 2006. She was only half watching the television screen in front of her when something snatched her attention, something that would hold her attention for the next two years. The first mention of the Amish school shooting in Lancaster County, Pa., shocked Dickey so much that she paused in her running and fell off the back of the treadmill. "I couldn't believe what I was seeing.

WAYNESBORO, PA. - On Scott Bergens' feet were the sneakers he uses so frequently now, but on his mind remained a series of numbers. Thirty-two, the age at which he was told by a doctor that he could have a stroke at any time. One wife. Two children. Fifty-one pounds lost since May 17. Nineteen more to go. The contribution to his personal success was spelled out on his face ? literally ? when Bergens had "YMCA" written in paint across his forehead and 2006 on each of his cheeks, which were spread wide with a smile as he embarked on the 35th annual CROP Hunger Walk.
