  • 12-year-old swimmer making a splash

    At 7:30 in the morning most seventh-graders are still hours away from even dreaming about waking up. Then there's Sam Ruble, who at that early hour is in the swimming pool training like it's his job. And this job really pays.

    Ruble's hard work has earned him one of the seven spots across the state for the Southern Zone Swim Team that will splash into competition Wednesday and represent the Commonwealth at this year's 3-day USA Swimming Southern Zone Meet in Orlando.

    Ruble, 12, has been training for competition since around the time he could say the word.

The park, for example has signups for 40 soccer teams but sponsors for only 14 of them. Youth basketball had 45 teams this winter, and seven of those teams were without sponsors.
