Berkeley County has no public access to the Potomac River, so preserving the ecosystem of the fishing pond at Poor House Farm Park is important, says Martinsburg-Berkeley County Parks & Recreation Board Executive Director Steve Catlett. The parks and recreation board on Tuesday authorized Catlett to rent equipment to dredge the 5-acre pond without draining it. "It shouldn't affect the fishing much at all," Catlett said Tuesday evening. The decision to scrape silt from the bottom of the fishing site in the 137-acre park comes about two months after an estimated 200 to 250 catfish died in the pond.

marlob@herald-mail.com When The Rev. Delancy Catlett tries to explain what compels him to pack up tools, books, Spanish Bibles and children's clothing and journey off to Honduras to do manual labor in the heat and poverty of that Central American country, it's actually simple. "It just gets in your blood," Catlett said, days after returning from his second extended mission trip there. Pastor of both Mount Vernon Reformed United Church of Christ in Keedysville and Christ Reformed United Church of Christ in Sharpsburg, Catlett was supported in his mission trip by both of his congregations.

edwardm@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSPORT - When Delancy Catlett heard his friend and pastor, the Rev. Bruce Epperly of the Downsville Christian Church in Williamsport, speak about the acute shortage of pastors in area churches, he decided to answer the call. The former Williamsport police chief and educator said Epperly was instrumental in his decision to become a pastor. He now preaches at Mt. Vernon Reformed United Church of Christ in Keedysville, which averages about 15 to 20 people at church services.

A BMX/skate park opened nearly three years ago by the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Parks and Recreation Board has been on “shaky ground” financially, the board's Executive Director R. Stephen Catlett told members meeting Tuesday. The indoor 6,100-square-foot facility at 39 Kelly Island Road hasn't been generating enough revenue to cover the monthly rent for the former cold-storage warehouse, Catlett said. The parks and recreation board leased the warehouse space from R.M. Roach & Sons Inc. (Roach Energy)

The $2,118,333 proposal by Smithsburg-based Roy C. Kline Contractors was the last of 11 proposals announced at the bid opening Tuesday at the Berkeley 2000 Recreation Center in Martinsburg. The bids exceeded the $1.5 million commitment that Smith, the project benefactor and Powerball winner, announced last year.
