Not all roads lead to Clear Spring but the few that do have been the measure by which this town's fortunes rise and fall.The great national road -- now known as the Old National Pike or Route 40 -- brought the first influx of travelers to the taverns, inns, hotels and stagecoach stops along East Cumberland Street. Clear Spring prospered as an endless parade of westbound wagons from Baltimore lined the streets. Some 2,500 people -- many on horseback and foot -- passed through the town each month during the height of the California Gold Rush in the late 1840s.

CHESTERTOWN -- Seeking its first state championship since 1975, the third-seeded Sparrows Point boys soccer team took one step closer to its goal with a 2-0 victory yesterday in the Class 1A state semifinals over No. 2 seed Clear Springs at Washington College. After playing two nail-biters against Poolesville and Pikesville, Sparrows Point was prepared to play another close game against Clear Springs. The Blazers had allowed only one goal in the playoffs, so goals were going to be hard to come by. "We have a hard time scoring a lot of times anyway, but we're a good defensive team," Sparrows Point coach George Bisoff said.
