WASHINGTON COUNTY -- Ryan Myers' family traced the arc of his young life -- from vibrant child to daredevilish adult to businessman in training -- at his funeral on Tuesday. His father, LeRoy E. Myers Jr., a state delegate, said many knew Ryan as someone who lived full throttle. The exterior was tough, but "underneath you had a sweet and tender spirit," LeRoy Myers said, speaking to hundreds of mourners at the Tri-State Fellowship church on Cearfoss Pike, near Hagerstown. Ryan Myers, 23, of Clear Spring, died Thursday when he crashed his motorcycle on Md. 63. He was run over by a tractor-trailer that was pulling out of a truck stop.

Just before the Sunday night Bible study time, more than a dozen youths played basketball inside the nave of Tri-State Fellowship, an evangelical church on Cearfoss Pike near Hagerstown. In a room upstairs, a couple of young adults rehearsed on a drum set and guitar. If it weren't for the lyrics, the tune could have been mistaken for a song played on a Top-40 radio station. Many denominations, particularly evangelical ones, have steered church life toward what could be described as a more casual ministry, said Randy Buchman, 51-year-old pastor at Tri-State Fellowship.

He'll remember the small towns along America's rural roads - hidden corners far beyond the sprawl of urbanization. He'll talk about pedaling his bicycle under a blazing sun, riding up mountains and across windy plains, surrounded by an endless expanse of earth and sky. He'll tell stories of the tapestry of people he met from east coast to west and all points in between. But, most importantly, Emory Rowland will recall the rewarding feeling of spending about two months of his young life helping to fight multiple sclerosis.

Opposites detract. OK, so there is this longstanding belief that they actually attract, like in love and relationships, but usually that magnetism tends to repel. There are cases where two things are so opposite, they find themselves on the other side of the circle, staring each other in the eye. A couple of those crossed paths over the last week. They were so different, there is no way they could be linked, unless you are reaching for a column. The only thing they have in common is timing.

We should respect God's beautiful earth To the editor: Lent has begun. It is a 40-day period in which we slow down, or at least try, and concentrate on the sacrifice of our Father, creator of this world. He sent forth His son, Jesus, for our redemption and restoration. Jesus came as well to give us guidelines for living kinder. Forgiveness sets an example in living out “loving our neighbors,” the commandment He asks of us now. When I was a young teen, I used to give up sweets for Lent.

I don't know about you, but I like to see a good fight now and then. But there are very few headliners nowadays. Boxing's heyday seems to have run its course. The fisticuffs at ice rinks and in the octagon are now all the rage. That's not the same. The civilized, non-physical brand of fighting is called debate, but not many would buy a pay-per-view to see two philosophers throw down. Besides, I think Socrates would have a weight and reach advantage over Plato. Still, here's one of the age-old battles that falls into the chicken-and-egg category.

Kaden Anders has a crush on Justin Bieber. A big crush. She thinks "his music is the best," loves to watch him dance and, if dreams come true, hopes to one day meet him face to face. "If I do," the 7-year-old said, "I'll tell him I love him. " Kaden is no different than millions of young girls around the world who will blush at the mere mention of the heart-throbbing, chart-topping singer's name. But Kaden's love of Bieber "is probably the most typical thing about her," said her mother, Sarah Anders.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Amid the pounding of drums from The Mooring band, you can hear teens laughing, parents shouting and the ever-present thwacking of flip-flops as kids run from one end of the parking lot to the other. The smell of popcorn and sweet cotton candy hangs heavily in the air like perfume, weaving in and out of the hundreds of people, many of whom are at the base of the makeshift stage, singing along to their favorite songs. Every once in awhile, you hear a loud splash as another victim falls prey to the water in the dunking booth.
