"To the Republican Party, your choice of John Munson as County Commissioner is a disaster. He doesn't even know what to do. " "All this mess with Trent Lott is ridiculous. If Al Gore had been elected in 2000, we wouldn't be having all of these problems. " "Here it is Friday morning and Washington County schools are on a two-hour delay. It is almost time for the bus to come and the road that we live on is a very steep hill and the road hasn't even been touched yet. But my child is supposed to stand along side of this road, while there are cars sliding off of it, which they are doing already.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - LouAnne Claucherty's work to chart a new course of development for downtown Martinsburg began as an attempt to boost her bed and breakfast business. Claucherty and her husband, Gordon, ran their bed and breakfast in stately Aspen Hall at 405 Boyd Ave., but they were concerned about the run-down condition of some of the homes their patrons would have to pass on their way to the inn. So the Clauchertys began buying the homes and renovating them. In 1995, the couple bought the house at 308 Boyd Ave., then purchased the house at 309 Boyd Ave. The Clauchertys gutted the historic homes, revealing attractive features and architecture inside.

Mental health agency turns to fund-raising By KERRY LYNN FRALEY Staff Writer It has been around for almost two decades. Still, many local people don't know it exists. Until the last few months, those running Turning Point of Washington County have been content to go about the business of helping mentally ill clients without attention from the general public, said executive director Roger Larson. However, a change in funding and program eligibility has forced the nonprofit agency to start getting the word out about the range of psychiatric rehabilitative services it provides, he said.

By LISA GRAYBEAL Staff Writer, Chambersburg CALEDONIA, Pa. - Her friends call her the Martha Stewart of Caledonia. Chambersburg, Pa., native Jeanne Henderson, 51, chuckles at the reference. But it's tough for her to shrug off a title that's so befitting in light of her neat appearance amid surroundings fit to be photographed. With help from business partner Wayne Bear, Henderson took on a renovation project a year ago that even Stewart may have found daunting. The result is the Chanticleer Inn, a unique bed and breakfast that sits on 17 acres of woodland just two miles west of Caledonia State Park on the property known formerly as the site of The Herb Cottage, which closed about three years ago. "I can't say it's something I've always wanted to do. But I have all the skills to run a bed and breakfast," Henderson said.
