Members of the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company watched as a house burned to the ground in Hickory over the weekend. It wasn't negligence, though, as the firefighters were participating in a live fire training session Sunday at 2228 Conowingo Road. The fire company burned to the ground a four-bedroom farmhouse recently acquired by Van Deusen Construction Company, which will be building an office building on the now-vacant property. "This is a rare opportunity for our members to train in an acquired structure," Eddie Hopkins, chief of the Bel Air fire company, said.

For the fourth time in seven years, the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds are going to the South Atlantic League playoffs. And their ticket was punched in the usual manner. It took consistent pitching from the starters and the bullpen. Steady, if not always spectacular, defense. Timely hitting from a group of players comfortable with sharing the load. "It sounds like a cliche," said manager Joe Ferguson, "but that's why it becomes a cliche." The Shorebirds entered the weekend 43-24 in the second half, clinching the North Division with Friday's 9-7 victory in Lexington.

HICKORY, N.C. - In spring 2000, Century Furniture Co. ran a help-wanted advertisement for upholsterers in six area newspapers. The company was offering a good-paying job in a region with thousands of experienced furniture workers, but not one applicant responded. At the time, the unemployment rate in this manufacturing area of North Carolina was an extraordinarily low 2.2 percent. Anyone who wanted to work was doing so, and companies were raiding each other for experienced workers. New industries refused to move in, fearing that they could not fill jobs.

A few days before the Major League Baseball draft last year, Baltimore Orioles director of pitcher development Rick Peterson had a conversation with longtime scout Dean Albany about a young pitcher from Millersville, Josh Hader. "I remember Dean calling me before the draft," said Peterson, in his second year with the Orioles. "As he described [Hader], I said, 'That's the kind of profile we are looking for.' " "I just told him there was an athletic left-handed pitcher I really liked, and we are going to have to take our time with him," Albany recalled.
