A group of developmentally disabled seniors make beautiful bell music every day at the Westminster Senior Center, playing show tunes, gospel music and patriotic anthems with great gusto and little training. "Practicing?" asked George Miller, 84, who left a lively bingo game to join the bell ringers. "I thought you were playing for real." The Freedom Bell Ringers rehearse daily, mixing gentle banter into their music, a combination that often draws others, like Miller and Cathy Chittchang, a center volunteer, into the routine.

He shattered a host of Carroll County and Monocacy Valley Athletic League records and set another state record with 63 touchdown passes in a season, breaking the previous mark of 56 set by Arundel's Billy Cosh in 2008.

Noted in past seasons mainly for his perimeter shooting, the 6-foot-5 Burrier this winter emerged as more of all-around threat, showing vast improvement in his play down low to average a Carroll County-best 20 points per game and rank among the county's leaders with 7.5 rebounds. He also shot 51 percent from the field, including a county-best 46 percent from three-point range, and even filled in as the team's back-up point guard for a month.

As the son of a former small college standout, nephew of a top assistant coach in the Atlantic Coast Conference and brother of a two-time Carroll County Player of the Year, Westminster's Kevin Carr was born to play basketball. His body, however, needed a little convincing. After spending most of his life as the smallest player on the court, Carr began a physician-supervised regiment of human growth hormones about a year ago. Now, after growing six inches in a matter of months, the sharp-shooting, 5-foot-10 point guard has raised his stature and his game, positioning himself for a chance to continue his career at the next level.
