Have you ever wanted to compete in the Olympic Games? What if you could compete as a familiar video game character such as Mario or Sonic the Hedgehog? That's exactly what the new Wii game, "Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games" does. The game combines basic button controls plus cool active features using the Wii remote. This really puts you in the game. The Wii system includes a remote that responds to players' motions. To compete in the 100-meter dash, move the Wii remote up and down (as if you are beating a drum)

What's the coolest Mario game yet? "Super Mario Galaxy" for Wii. "Super Mario Galaxy" is a mix of adventure, action and that fun, challenging element that makes up Nintendo's Mario series. The story begins on Earth when Bowser (the villain) attacks Mushroom Kingdom and steals Princess Peach's castle. Mario tries to stop Bowser but gets shot out of the Milky Way and into a Galaxy observation space station. It's up to the player to visit different galaxies and planets in order to collect stars and eventually confront Bowser and rescue Peach.

Rant "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess" for GameCube is supposed to be released the middle of this month. I'm surprised we got this close to the release date without it being changed. Two years ago, this game was supposed to be released. Then, the date was moved further and further and further out and, well, you get the picture. I got tired of waiting, because soon the game wouldn't be worth buying. And I was right. They spent so much time putting more and more detail into the game that the Wii version came out first.

LANDMARKS PHOTO CLUES $300. You read me right. $300. That's a Wii player and a Wii game. Or about six tanks of gas. (Sad, isn't it?) So put on your walking shoes and hit downtown Hagerstown. The Herald-Mail's 12th annual Landmarks Contest kicks off today and you might win $300. This year's contest is a bit different, with a twist thrown in. Instead of images, we're asking you to look for 13 letters - A, B, E, E, H, I, L, N, O, T, T, W and Z. Then, tell us the "landmark" - the building or business - at which you found the letter.

Soon the presents will have been opened. The church services and children’s pageants will be past, and the fat Christmas goose will be lunch meat. If you are blessed with friends and family, you’ll likely pile into one house or another for Christmas-time visiting. Where I grew up, we called it “treeing.” Usually there was lots of cookie eating, along with consumption of pepperoni, cheese and crackers. My great-aunt Edith would call my four siblings and me to our tree and insist on seeing each and every gift we’d received.

HALFWAY -- Peg Sensenbaugh said she was a novice at both bowling and video games, but when she and her husband saw a booth at Valley Mall offering Wii bowling, they decided to give it a try. Within minutes, Sensenbaugh, 72, of Hagerstown, had gotten the hang of swinging the motion-sensing video game controller toward the screen and releasing the button, sending her virtual bowling ball barreling toward the pins on the screen. "I think we're gonna have to get a Wii," she told her husband.

HAGERSTOWN -- At South Hagerstown High School, there can be a lot of pressure to drink alcohol or have sex, said Anthony Simmons, 16. Maybe that is why Anthony and his friend Brandon Feigley, 15, also a South High student, were encouraged by their parents to attend the Teen IDEA Challenge Sunday, sponsored by the Washington County Teen Pregnancy Prevention Coalition. IDEA stands for Individual Decision Empowerment and Awareness. About 500 teens were expected to attend the first-time event, which focused on teaching teens about the choices they will face and the effects of their decisions, said Shalom Black Lane, executive director of the coalition.
