For several months, while employed as a summer interpreter at Harpers Ferry National Park, I drove through the village of Bolivar and down the steep hill to the park headquarters. At that point in time, I knew very little about this amazing warrior for liberty or why a village in West Virginia would select his name for such an honor. Author Marie Arana, in her recently published “Bolivar - American Liberator” gives a colorful and sensitive account of one of the world's most dedicated protagonists for liberty.

A few minutes into a conversation with Alice Brumbaugh, the George Woltz grandfather clock she donated to the Alice Virginia and David W. Fletcher Branch of the Washington County Free Library chimed the hour as it has for more than two centuries. “It seemed right for it to come back to Hagerstown,” Brumbaugh said. The Chambersburg, Pa., woman said the clock, which was built in Hagerstown, has been in her family at least a century. It now graces a corner of the John Clinton Frye Western Maryland Room, the repository for the rebuilt library's collection of rare books, records and other documents of the region.

Last year, Boonsboro became the first cross country program in Washington County to win both girls and boys team titles at the Maryland state meet in the same season, accomplishing the feat in Class 1A. Now, beginning this school year, the Warriors are in 2A. “Last year the goal was to win states, and that's still the goal,” Boonsboro coach Becky Walter said. “Obviously we're in 2A and the competition is a lot better, just more depth all around. But these kids are working hard for it. They want to prove that they didn't just win in 1A, but that they can win in 2A as well.” While the Boonsboro girls have lost three of their top-five scorers from last year's team to graduation, including individual state champion Sarah Zielinski, they have a pair of big-time additions to join top returnees Kortney Cunningham, a senior, and Ella Hawkins, a junior, at the front of the pack.

The Williamsport girls soccer team still has its eyes on the prizes - the Washington County, MVAL Antietam and Maryland Class 2A West titles. “For us, those are the three,” Williamsport coach Tim Salvagno said. After going 1-for-3 in its title pursuit last season, the Wildcats are ready to try again for the sweep this fall. They return seven starters - including four all-county selections - from last year's team that won the MVAL Antietam Conference regular-season title and finished second in both the county and region tournaments.
