The Maugansville Little League can't have a dunking booth at this weekend's Maugansville Pride Days because of state drought restrictions, although other dunking booths have been allowed elsewhere in the county. The Little League, which has had a dunking booth at the event for about 15 years, was neither surprised nor disappointed by the decision, said Jay Stouffer, a member of the league's board of directors. The rejection will mean about a $400 to $500 loss for an organization with a budget of about $60,000, Stouffer said Monday.

After five years of teaming up with other chambers of commerce to showcase local businesses, the Hagerstown-Washington County Chamber of Commerce went back to a solo event this year. The daylong Washington County Business Expo '99 didn't feature as many exhibitors as last year's sold-out Quad State Business Exposition, which had 75 exhibitors, said Fred K. Teeter Jr., president of the Hagerstown-Washington County Chamber of Commerce. But the 61 businesses, nonprofit agencies and government entities participating represented a big increase over 1993, the last year the Chamber sponsored its own expo, Teeter said.

Former Elvis tribute artist Kevin Booth of Martinsburg, W.Va., picked Valentine's Day to give his first performance as a gospel singer Thursday. Booth performed at the Valentine's Day event for members of the Senior Center at Girls, Inc. Thursday afternoon. “They called me to do an Elvis program a couple months ago, so I explained to them I was no longer doing Elvis but I was doing gospel, and (they) said to come down and do Gospel then,” Booth said. “I've been in the country music field, and I always felt this calling to do gospel music.” During the performance he shared his experiences that led him to becoming a gospel singer, including working in the country music industry for 15 years and recording his own music, marrying his wife BillieJo at Graceland in Memphis in August 2007, and his experience as an Elvis tribute artist.

It's not just the millions of records he sold or the movies he made that rendered Elvis Presley immortal. His legend also lives on through the performances of tribute artists who try to capture the music icon's aura. Clad in leather jackets and jewel-studded jumpsuits, they curl their lips and shake a leg, wooing the faithful who show up at banquets, nightclubs and even churches to catch a glimpse of the faux King. It's almost as if Elvis has never left the building. If imitation is the highest form of flattery, then Mr. Presley must be very pleased.
