CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Two Eastern Panhandle county commissioners say they want to set up their own boards in their counties to run the state's new Farmland Protection Program signed into law Wednesday by Gov. Cecil Underwood. By doing so, they would be able to apply for the same federal funds as the state and not have to rely on West Virginia to distribute the money among its counties, Berkeley County Commission President D. Wayne Dunham said. Under the plan, which was proposed in the recent session of the Legislature by Sen. John Unger, D-Berkeley, "protective easements" would be set up on local farms to protect them from development.

For once, planning boards seem to be listening to citizens Since childhood we've been taught that growth, like God, is good. And developers showing up before planning and zoning boards had correspondingly been offered little more resistance than the Almighty had He requested a setback variance for the pearly gate. But now, perhaps, an interesting trend may be in its embryonic stage in the Tri-State area. In the past few weeks, developers of a cell phone tower, a Wal-Mart Supercenter, a truck stop and a major housing development have been beaten into a retreat in the face of local planning boards and the citizenry at large.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The post-election ritual of shuffling leadership seats on borough councils and township supervisor boards in southern Franklin County, Pa., took place with its usual lack of fanfare in the first week of the new year. Some jurisdictions opted for new leaders, some decided to stick with incumbents, and one, in an attempt at fairness, rotates its top job each year. Richard Starliper will stay on as president of the Waynesboro Borough Council, a post he assumed two years ago from the retiring Kinney Stouffer.

The Washington County Board of Education Tuesday is scheduled to discuss whether the board should have a formal annual self-appraisal, after a committee voted last month to recommend rescinding the policy, panel members said. School board member Melissa Williams brought up the policy during the board's July 23 meeting, asking that it have a discussion soon about how it was going to do the self-appraisal, which is due by Oct. 1 under current board policy. At an Aug. 6 meeting, the school board voted 5-2 on member Wayne Ridenour's motion to suspend the policy and send it to the board's Policy Committee for review and to possibly recommend whether to change or rescind it. Several board members have said past retreats, in which the board essentially evaluates itself, have not benefited board member relations.

The debt represents one of four bond issues done to obtain money for the $46 million expansion and renovation of Waynesboro Area Senior High School.
