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. Gregory Lance that stemmed from a struggle between Lance and his son at a bowling alley in March. In his motion to have the case dropped, Lance cited a West Virginia Department of Health and Human Services decision that there was no reason for the agency to become involved in the case. Jefferson County Magistrate Katherine Santucci also denied Lance's motion to have the charge put on the court's inactive docket for 90 days.

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.

A bowling alley with no smoke? A bowling alley with no sports jerseys? A bowling alley with no greasy burgers or pitchers of beer? What's the point? This is one of those cases where you're happy that new trends hit Hagerstown about two decades after they have ceased to be trendy anywhere else. Because frankly, I do not believe we are ready for what is being dubbed "boutique bowling. " Boutique bowling, according to a story last week in the Washington Post, is a Jackie O. twist on a Jack Daniels sport.

It seems we're always celebrating some child's birthday, be it in our family, at church or at school. My children love the gift-buying process. I tell them to select something they would like and to imagine how much fun their friends will have playing with it. The day of the party, they wake up asking how much longer it will be until we can go. The excitement continues to build as we arrive at the festivities. The children go off together, and the adults mingle. A child's birthday party seems to bring out the best of that creativity gene all parents suddenly develop when they are first handed a bundle of joy. Some parents opt for at-home parties, others choose child-friendly restaurants, play places designed expressly for this purpose, or other activity-based businesses.
