The owners of a nightclub near Boonsboro told Washington County liquor board officials Wednesday that they were considering opening a bed and breakfast behind the establishment. Ryan Dryden and Joe Velasquez, co-owners of The Lodge at 21614 National Pike near Boonsboro, asked the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County what they would have to do to serve alcohol at the bed and breakfast if they proceeded with the plan. Dryden said he and Velasquez would like to build a swimming pool and four small cabins at the rear of the property.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - One of Martinsburg's oldest downtown buildings could become one of its newest inns. The new owners of the historic Rear Admiral Charles Boarman House, which is on the southeast corner of the intersection of King and Queen streets, say they are considering plans to turn the 200-year-old house into a bed and breakfast once they complete renovations. The house was purchased in October by Leesburg, Va., residents Chester and Jeanne Martin, who received approval from the city's Board of Zoning Appeals Tuesday for a special exception that will allow the house to be used as a residence.

FORT LOUDON, PA. -- A love of history is driving Dawn Gogin to restore what is left of the Fort Loudon Inn after a fire 11 months ago. Gogin and her husband, Dick, have rehabilitated two motel rooms and three apartments since the blaze gutted their late 18th-century building. They want to start creating a bed and breakfast on the other side of the structure, where only exterior walls remain. While doing that, the couple hopes to maintain a historical feel and reincorporate their antiques.

Rail trails have many benefits To the editor: I would like to respectfully respond to Sylvia M. Bealer's letter to the editor printed in The Herald-Mail on March 8. Ms. Bealer stated that she is not in favor of the proposed Civil War Rail Trail. She states “The rail trail would be an eyesore to anyone wanting to open a bed and breakfast in the neighborhood.” Rail trails are basically a blacktop trail only a few feet wide. Most people do not see them as being ugly.

Falling temperatures this week was a sure sign that autumn was on its way. Today officially marks the first day of fall. Now that days get shorter and nights get longer, leaves will begin to change color. The changing colors of leaves primarily are regulated by how long the nights are. When night length increases in the fall, chlorophyll production slows down in the leaves. Eventually, all of the chlorophyll is destroyed, and the leaves reveal the colors of other pigments, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Web site, www.fs.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Martinsburg's historic Boydville property may not have seen its last wine festival following a vote Thursday by the City Council to provide funding for the annual summer event. The council voted on a motion by Councilman-at-large Donald Anderson to allocate $500 to the Arts Centre to keep the yearly summer Wine and Arts Festival at the 13-acre south Martinsburg property. The council's vote appeared to be an effort by members to cement the event to Boydville after the location for the summer festival had been left hanging following the failure of Arts Centre officials to reach an agreement with the Berkeley County Farmland Preservation Board during a meeting last month.

With hundreds of years of history surrounding her, Karen Geesaman sat down in her favorite room to reflect on the property she purchased in 1982. Situated on 54 acres at 7982 Kuhn Road, Geesaman's plot sits on a historic piece of farmland amid the picturesque rolling hills just outside Greencastle and has ties to the late 1700s. Many families owned or lived on the property before Geesaman, who bought it “not so much for the house itself, but for the setting.” “It's kind of my little 54-acre domain,” Geesaman said.

Wealth, glamour and princely titles aren't prerequisites for a story line in one of Nora Roberts' books. Instead, her characters tend to be everyday people, working at ordinary jobs and enjoying a cold beer at the end of the day. And sometimes, as in her latest novel, they enjoy that beer with a meal at Vesta Pizzeria and Family Restaurant. They chat with neighbors at Crawfords Confectionary, enjoy a banana split at The Creamery and browse for the latest bestsellers at Turn the Page Bookstore.

We hear it a lot around here, and you've probably heard it too: Print media is going down the tubes. Newspapers as we now know them will soon be a thing of the past. Sure, here in the newsroom, we're worried. I think anyone is when the future is uncertain. We try to embrace change, but it still can be frightening, especially when a path we've traveled down so many times must be abandoned for a new course. I think we all know that careers that have served us so very well in the past may not be around tomorrow, and we will have to adapt to something else.

HANCOCK -- Flint's Chance, the Toll House, the Good Samaritan House and the Taney House are all part of the Hancock Historical Society's Holiday Homes Tour this month. The tour, to be held the weekend of Nov. 21-22, is the first house tour in Hancock for decades, according to historical society officials. Historical society member Tracy Salvagno said another member found a program from a 1950s house tour, but this is the first in recent history. "We would like it to become an annual tradition," Salvagno said of the tour that is a fundraiser for the historical society.

While growing up, I often was irritated when my mother would say, "I love old people. " Although I don't think the word "ageism" had been coined when I was a know-it-all-and-sensitive-to-political-correctness young adult, I was bugged. My mom certainly wasn't discriminating against her friends of advanced age. (Please note, I hate the word "elderly. ") But I considered it kind of patronizing that she seemed to feel the need to mention "old" - as if people somehow magically became different when they crossed the threshold of Social Security eligibility.
