Chris Haugh's video career started in the backyard of his Fredrick home as a child as he and friends built neighborhood football and baseball fields to play. With a small camcorder he and friends video taped much of their sports action. Haugh, now 46, is the Scenic Byways and special projects manager with the Tourism Council of Frederick County. Haugh and the Tourism Council, in partnership with Maryland Public Television, recently won a local Emmy award for their film, “Heart of the Civil War.” Staff photo by Bill Green
