BOONSBORO -- Eleven athletes at Boonsboro High School were removed from their teams after police broke up a large South County alcohol party over the weekend, authorities said Wednesday. Boonsboro High Athletic Director Mark Wadel said the students violated school rules for extracurricular activities -- possessing drugs or alcohol or "constructive possession," which is having control by being near people who possess alcohol or drugs. He said most of the winter sports were affected, but wouldn't specify which ones.

By TIM SHEA It had been about 20 years since I was on skates when I took to the ice at the Hagerstown Ice & Sports Complex on the last weekend of 2002. I was trying to find something to do with my 7-year-old daughter, Kielen, on Saturday afternoons during the winter months. We had gone to the winter skating exhibition at the rink a couple of weeks before and Kielen said she was going to be in that show next time. So, onto the ice we went two weeks later to see if she would like skating - and to see if I still had any skating left in me. About 50 minutes later, I had two sore feet and we were at the other end of the ice when it was time for the Zamboni to come out and resurface the rink.

One of the most severe effects of global warming is that Americans seem to have forgotten what ice and snow is. We've never been able to drive on it, now it seems we've forgotten how to play on it. As I'm writing this, we've won a grand total of eight medals. Not eight gold medals, eight medals. For heaven's sake, when people talk about shared prosperity and equality I assumed they meant the global village, not the Olympic village. What, Austria's the only one that has mountains anymore?

Historic Suns open season tonight To the editor: As the days grow longer, and the weather gets warmer, we slowly end our hibernation and find ways to spend more time outside. Sometimes it occurs naturally and sometimes we make conscious choices to flee the indoors. In communities like ours across the country, winter sports that occupy gymnasiums throughout the winter draw to a close and are replaced by spring-time sports. This is one of those "natural" occurrences.

From the time Bill Dietrich formed the Two Top Mountain Adaptive Sports Foundation in 2007, his mission has included teaching those with physical disabilities how to ski. Doing so is not much different than teaching someone without disabilities to take to the slopes, Dietrich said this week. “Skiing being a gravity sport, it's how the person approaches it, whether they're disabled or not,” he said. “Gravity doesn't care if you're standing up or on a mono-ski. “We are really just teaching skiing and adapting it to them with their disability,” said Dietrich, the program's executive director.
