martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Citing the heinous nature of the crime, a judge on Monday refused to sentence a man convicted of robbing and kidnapping an 83-year-old woman to the Anthony Center, a facility for young offenders that serves as an alternative to prison. Belcher Grady, 20, of Fairfax Street in Martinsburg, was instead sentenced to two 20-year prison terms, to be served concurrently, said Circuit Judge David Sanders. On Dec. 10, 2003, Grady entered an Alford plea to one count of kidnapping and one count of first-degree robbery.

Former Berkeley County delegate and current Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Faircloth said Thursday that a joke he told referring to President Obama as "Sambo" and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as a "bimbo" was simply an attempt to "bring a little humor" to the campaign. Faircloth said he apologizes for the joke if it offended anyone, which it has, including a West Virginia branch of the NAACP. He said the joke he told at a candidates forum on April 29 in Romney, W.Va., is representative of the humor in politics.

But the next day, a magazine and a store catalog landed there, plus several birthday cards from friends and a week's worth of newspapers. Every time you passed by, you considered sorting through the items and discarding what you didn't need. Instead, you continued adding to the pile, telling yourself you'd get around to straightening things up as soon as you had some free time.

Maryland's new gun law is set to take effect in October, and gun owners and gun-store employees are scrambling to figure out what the 62-page bill will mean to them. Tim Hafer, a manager at the Downsville Gun Shop and owner of Hafer's Gunsmithing, said the bill is confusing. The bill is written for “lawyers and judges,” he said. “A regular person will not be able to decipher it ... there are questions about everything ... what they will be able to buy and what they won't,” Hafer said.
