For young people to succeed, they need to know the possibilities. That is the idea that drove Deborah Addo Samuels, chief operating officer at Meritus Medical Center, to become active in the Hagerstown YMCA's Achievers program. “If only think you can only do a or b, that's what you are programmed to do,” Samuels said. “But if you think you can do a through z, then that really motivates you.” Adults and young people gathered Saturday night to celebrate a commitment to exploring and achieving goals at the Hagerstown YMCA Achievers Scholarship Banquet at Bridge of Life.

What are the biggest challenges to agriculture today? I get asked that question a lot and I find that while the orders of the answer change, the primary answers don't. When I say the order, I mean the order of importance. For instance, a few years ago when the building boom was in full swing, urban sprawl would have been much higher on the list in the Mid-Atlantic region than it is today. That is not to say the urban sprawl is still not a concern. At last glance, they aren't making any more land, and for some reason, prime farm land is also prime development land.
