The Hagerstown Suns began entering their selfish stage on Friday. They began to worry only about themselves. It's the point of the first half when Hagerstown needed to do that ... and it worked. Brandon Miller hit his 12th home run and the Suns took care of business by knocking West Virginia 9-3 in the first step of controlling their destiny in hopes of winning the South Atlantic League Northern Division's first-half title. Hagerstown was a half-game behind Hickory and a half-game ahead of West Virginia after the win to assume sole possession of second place.

Mildred Hays never set out to make it to 100 years old. But then, as a mother of 10 children and widowed in her mid-30s, she didn't have much time to think about it. “I was just doing everyday living,” she said. “But I'm thankful to be 100.” Hays hit that milestone April 28, and on Saturday, about 160 family members gathered at Virginia Avenue Church of God to celebrate with her. Many were locals, while others traveled from Montana, Massachusetts, Michigan and Florida.

Civil War cannons that occupied Doubleday Hill in Williamsport from the late 1800s until they were removed in 2000 returned to their home during a ceremony Saturday. Williamsport Town Councilman Scott Bragunier coordinated the historic project, through which the cannons were sent away to Kentucky firm Steen Cannons for restoration. Bragunier said in 1896, U.S. Sen. Louis E. McComas donated the tubes that had been stockpiled following the war. The town of Williamsport mounted the tubes on bricks and dedicated them on Doubleday Hill on July 4, 1897.
