It takes a Big Band sound to battle the disco, punk, thrash rock, heavy metal and country-pop now dominating national soundtracks. But that's exactly what the Zim Zemarel Band has done in the greater Baltimore area for the better part of 50 years. And even though Zemarel himself died in 1999, at age 82, his former band mates Gene Bonner, 77, of Perry Hall, and Wayne Hudson, 68, of Pasadena, are still carrying the torch for the band, and for Tommy Dorsey- and Benny Goodman-style 1940s Big Band music itself.

One of the things Franklin senior attackman Ben Kaestner enjoys most is helping others. He's bagged food for the Reisterstown Crisis Center, participated in the Crop Walk for Hunger and was a volunteer cleanup worker for Historic Glyndon Inc. As a team captain, Kaestner's final lacrosse season has been ideal because the Indians have a roster filled with underclassmen who have followed his lead. After losing their first three games, the Indians have won three straight to even their record at 5-5. Kaestner, who leads the team with 21 goals and 13 assists, is expecting the team to continue the positive surge with the playoffs fast approaching.
