When the 1990 census figures arrived, Mayor Richard Goodrich realized that Brunswick had 117 citizens more than the requisite 5,000 to become a city under the rules of the Maryland Municipal League. Brunswick is now advertising a charter change. If there is no opposition, the town on the banks of the Potomac soon will turn into a city."City has a nice ring to it," muses Mayor Goodrich. "Brunswick is growing. We ought to be very proud that we are a growing community and now, after umpteen years, we are one of two cities in Frederick County."

Stephanie Harshman whips the white-wire jump rope around as fast as she can, creating the blurry outline of a full revolution and generating the high-pitched howl of a large gust of wind. It's the double-under, a move that explains itself: two revolutions before her feet hit the floor.

A season-ending nine-game winning streak was more than enough to propel the team to a second straight Manchester Valley state championship.
