martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - As a clerk announced Thursday afternoon that a jury had found Nicole Kees guilty of first-degree murder, Kees shook her head, covered her face with her hands and began to sob. Moments later, after members of the jury were dismissed, Kees screamed, "I'm going to spend my life in prison because their son wanted to get high?" Although the verdict carries an automatic sentence of life in prison, jurors decided to grant mercy, meaning Kees will be eligible for a parole hearing after serving 15 years.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources recently amended its alcohol policy to permit the use of alcohol at state forest campsites. The change went into effect in May. At the same time, the policy prohibiting alcohol in Maryland's state parks, including at family campgrounds, remains in place, the DNR said in an e-mailed release. Under the previous policy, alcohol was prohibited in state parks and state forests. "We were going to make it prohibited at state forests, but because they are so remote and so far away from each other, we didn't have the same number of incidents occurring there as we did at the state parks," said Josh Davidsburg, senior communications manager for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.

When I was a teen working at a Clear Spring deli, a man walked up to my counter and ordered a meat grinder. I looked back at the meat slicer behind me and told him that I couldn't sell it to him. He'd have to talk to my boss. That summer I found out (after an eye roll and a few choice words) that grinders are what New Englanders call subs. They're also called submarines, hoagies, heroes and Po'Boys, depending on where you grew up. A Western Maryland favorite, the steamer, also has its own identity crisis.
