In roller derby, a name says it all. The Hazard County Hellions, Harford County's only roller derby team, chose a name that seems wild and mischievous, a stark contrast to the responsible citizens who form the team. In this sport, theatrics are just as much a part of a match as athletics, and its players, no matter how shy or timid they seem by day, take on sassy, aggressive alter egos when they lace up their skates. Formed in 2013, the co-ed team is part of MADE (Modern Athletic Derby Endeavor)

Donnell Whittenburg rocked back and forth on his feet, his eyes boring into the vault table yards ahead of him as he waited behind the start line. It was Aug. 24, Day 2 of the 2014 P&G Gymnastics Championships at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, and the 20-year-old U.S. men's national team member was playing catch-up after finishing sixth two nights earlier. So Whittenburg, a Baltimore native who will be competing in the world championships starting Friday in Nanning, China, knew he had to nail a rare vault sequence - so dangerous that it was once thought to be impossible - if he wanted to medal.

Editor: When County Executive David Craig won election, I recall hearing him articulate his vision for our county. Essentially, what I heard him say, was that he wanted to develop the kind of county where all of its citizens could live, work and play - right here in Harford County. He went on to say that he wanted to develop a county in which our children could receive a world class education and not have to leave Harford County to find good paying jobs. This vision was articulated before BRAC led to the creation of the Chesapeake Science and Security Corridor.
