A request for Hagerstown to annex a proposed bowling alley parcel was withdrawn Monday, one day before the city council was going to discuss it. Aristodemos Capital Group LLC, the property owner, plans to open a tenpin bowling alley on Leitersburg Pike, where Long Meadow Bowl, a duckpin alley, closed in 2009 after 38 years. Besides bowling, the new Seven Ten Family Entertainment Center would have an arcade and a dining area. Ash Azadi, Aristodemos Capital Group's managing partner, has said a nightclub would open later at the site.

A handful of Hagerstown residents Wednesday raised concerns with  Washington County liquor officials Wednesday over a businessman's plan to open a bowling alley this spring near Longmeadow Shopping Center. Many of the residents said they believed that Ash Azadi's plan to open a restaurant and bowling alley in the former Long Meadow Bowl building at 19330 Leitersburg Pike could create parking problems and excess traffic. "The parking at best ... there could be 200 (vehicles) out there," former Hagerstown City Councilwoman Penny M. Nigh told the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County.

By CLYDE FORD Staff Writer, Charles Town CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A Jefferson County magistrate refused Tuesday to drop a domestic battery charge against County Commissioner R.

Jefferson County Magistrate Katherine Santucci also denied Lance's motion to have the charge put on the court's inactive docket for 90 days.

I'm OK,” said Kate Long, who followed up a gutter ball with a strike. Long, 27, of Hagerstown, was bowling with her husband, Jason, and her mother-in-law, Cindy Long, who is a letter carrier in the Black Rock Golf Course area.

HAGERSTOWN -- Frank Turner closed one of his four local bowling alleys on Monday. Long Meadow Bowl has been open on Leitersburg Pike since 1961, he said. "For a lot of people, this was a home," he said. Turner said the decline of 9 p.m. bowling leagues nationwide helped cut into business. He said the remaining league bowlers at Long Meadow Bowl have moved to other Turner alleys. Turner also owns Dual Lanes on Dual Highway, Southside Bowl on Virginia Avenue and Pikeside Bowl near Martinsburg, W.Va.
