Despite the fact that most amusement parks have raised their prices and many bus lines have increased fares, Clara Broadus and her sister, Dottie Bell, are again planning an excursion this summer for underprivileged children. "We've chosen Dorney Park in Allentown, Pa., this year because the kids like the water park there," Broadus said. The trip is planned for Saturday, Aug. 8. Under the auspices of For Our Kids' Sake, three Atlantic Coast Trailways buses -- at a cost of $1,627 per bus -- will drive as many as 165 youngsters and chaperones to the park for the all-day excursion.

The 400-foot-tall water slides were tempting, but the swimmers at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort near Williamsport weren’t there to play: They were there to break a world record. The Jellystone water park and the pool at Martin L. “Marty” Snook Memorial Park in Halfway were Washington County’s venues Tuesday in The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson. The event was designed to inform children about water safety and aimed to beat last year’s Guinness World Record of 3,971 participants from 34 states and five countries.

Last week's question: President Lyndon Johnson's widow, Lady Bird, recently died. One of her passions was the beautification of public places. What public space in this area, as opposed to private property, could use some beautification? · Hagerstown cares about beautification? Since when? All they care about is annexation of just about everything to put up more baloney. We don't need more hotels and restaurants. I'll say in the next 20 years there wont be any fields left in this area - it will be one big doggone shopping plaza!

The pressure was so intense, moisture beaded up on Robbie Jacobsen's brow. "It was pretty tough," said the Hagerstown Suns first baseman. "I was standing up there and water droplets were coming off my helmet. That made it tough. " The only problem, it wasn't sweat. Instead, Jacobsen came to bat in a rainstorm that turned Municipal Stadium into a water park minus the slide. He provided a thrill by lacing a 3-2 curveball down the left-field line for an RBI single with two outs in the eighth inning to lift the Suns to a 3-2 victory over Greensboro.

A Hagerstown resident recently submitted an emailed photo that shows standing water at the intersection of Park Lane and Belview Avenue in the city's North End, an area that is prone to standing water that cannot flow into storm drains after substantial rainfalls. “During any moderate to heavy rain, the water has to pool so high, the water runs across the road to the storm drain across the road,” Billy Taylor, a Belview Avenue resident, wrote in his email. “The storm drain at the bottom of the picture is higher than the road and corner,” he wrote.

Every summer, three busloads of children, parents and chaperones depart from Hagerstown for a day of adventure at an amusement park. For many of the children, this trip to the amusement park is one of the only times all summer that they will leave the Hagerstown area.

Last year they took more than 175 children and parents to Paramount King's Dominion in Virginia, and they will return to the park this year.
