Any time I open a letter from the cable TV company that starts out by telling me how cheap my cable service is vis-a-vis Great Cacapon, W.Va., I know I'm about to be three things, two of which are blued and tattooed. I have no idea why the boys over at the Federal Reserve are all a-twitter about "deflation. " Sure the cost of TVs keeps dropping, but everywhere the cost of signals is making up the difference, and then some. It's getting to the point that if I don't hear from the cable company during any given week, I start to worry.

charlestown@herald-mail.com BARDANE, W.Va. - Imagine a communications network for your home or business that has Internet, telephone and television cable service all rolled into one line. The television cable would allow consumers to customize their service, such as picking a group of sports channels, officials said.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, W.Va. - A group of children gathered on a hillside in the Blue Ridge Mountain on Tuesday afternoon, preparing for the challenge before them. After scaling a ladder extended up a tree, the youths were to perform a tightrope walk along a cable over a ravine. Cables are attached to the children to catch them in case they slip, but it still can be a frightening experience. The cable rises about 50 feet over a stream in the ravine as the children attempt to make it to a platform attached to the side of a tree where an assistant is waiting for them.

Well, add Web design to the expanding list of things that I am grossly unqualified for. For a second there, I thought it would be a good skill to have, so in the name of "self-improvement" and "continuing education" and "getting out of the office for three hours every Wednesday afternoon," I signed up for a class at Hagerstown Community College. Technologically speaking, the worst thing that ever happened to me was cable television. At a young age, I took a coaxial cable (which is basically a wire with a college education)
