It's tough to be a college student. Out of their parents' home, holding down a job and trying to do well at school, today's college students work hard to achieve goals their parents, communities and schools have set for them. The everyday pressures they feel to succeed are high. And then there's the economy and a person's first career. According to a poll conducted by CBS News and MTV of young adults between the ages of 18 and 29, young people expect that economic problems will be the main concern their generation will have to deal with over the next 20 years.

HAGERSTOWN -- A pregnant teenager kneels on the floor, her face in her hands, as the baby's father walks out the door. A young, stressed-out mom vents about having no time to study for final exams. A pair of young adults shares fears of STDs, unplanned pregnancy, gossip and lost self-respect. These are the concepts selected by a local organization this year to convey one central message to local teenagers: "Sex Has Consequences. " The winning advertisements, selected in the categories of print, radio and short film, respectively, were created by local teenagers and young adults for the Washington County Teen Pregnancy Prevention Coalition's second annual "Sex Has Consequences" ad and film contest.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- Before Andrew Mowen left on his first trip outside the country, the 17-year-old from Greencastle wasn't sure whether he'd enjoy traveling. Despite more than 20 hours on a plane, he now wants to explore more and maybe even study at a Buddhist temple. He was impressed by Thailand's monks and the country's culture on a recent 10-day excursion through Summer Global Experience. "It was just nice to be there, somewhere different," he said. Andrew participated in a weeklong Leadership Academy through Lancaster (Pa.)

A nationally known author has taken a distinct piece of Washington County history and woven it into a novel. During a visit to Hagerstown in November 1996, Ann Rinaldi, an award-winning writer of historical fiction for young adults, discovered the story of 15-year-old Annie Brown. Annie helped her father, abolitionist John Brown, conceal the small army he was amassing on the Kennedy Farm in southern Washington County. She helped maintain the appearance of a working pre-Civil War farm while, inside the small farmhouse, Brown's soldiers - both blacks and whites - planned their infamous raid on the U.S. arsenal at Harpers Ferry, W.Va.

marlob@herald-mail.com WASHINGTON COUNTY - Some vacation! Sixteen hours in a car, sleeping on an air mattress on the floor, eating plain jelly sandwiches after the peanut butter disappeared, all the while doing back-breaking chores from sunrise to sunset for eight days. Now that those young adults from Tri-State Fellowship are back home in Hagerstown, they can't wait to turn around and head back to the Gulf Coast for another go at hurricane cleanup. "All of us are going back," said Julie Horst, wife of Arnold Horst, who facilitated the two teams from the Cearfoss-area church in spending the first eight days of 2006 in Covington, La., which was hit hard by Hurricane Katrina.

In my last column, I started to present a blueprint for redeveloping downtown Hagerstown . The blueprint is based on a March 2005 Brookings Institution report by Christopher Leinberger titled “Turning around Downtown: Twelve Steps to Revitalization.” That column presented the six steps that must be taken by local government to create an environment conducive to revitalization of downtown. Step 1: Capture the Vision. The Goal, Objective & Strategy Statement announced by the City and the Economic Development Commission does articulate a vision, but it does not provide enough direction to be considered a strategic plan.

 In Carol Larese Millward's novel, "Star in the Middle," teen mother Star raises her child while also dealing with the everyday stresses that come with being a teenage girl. On top of that, the baby's father absolutely refuses to admit that the baby is even his. Millward said the main point to writing her first young adult novel was that she wanted teenagers to be more aware of teen pregnancy. "I wanted to raise that awareness," Millward said in a telephone interview from her Elkton, Md., home.

Who's losing faith in the direction of the Catholic Church? To the editor: I was surprised and alarmed to read the column that appeared in the Dec. 1 Herald-Mail titled "Losing faith in direction of the Catholic Church," written by Bonnie Erbe. Erbe unfairly and erroneously attacked a broad spectrum of issues concerning the Catholic Church. Her statement that more educated parishioners have left the church is totally false. That the church has receded as a religious and cultural force is also false.
