A liquor license violation hearing for Cancun Cantina was continued Wednesday and will be rescheduled for March, county liquor board officials said.

Related medical records also had not been obtained. Joseph Rouse, representing Cancun Cantina on Dual Highway near Hagertown, opposed the continuance because a number of witnesses had been assembled, but the liquor board members decided to grant the continuance.

London Fletcher says he gets his bell rung perhaps twice a game. He's played in 240 games in a row, not counting preseason and playoffs. Do the math, and it adds up. The Washington Redskins linebacker has seen a lot of stars. “I play inside linebacker and I like to play it physical,” Fletcher said Thursday. “So, I don't know, it can happen a couple of times a game, but I wouldn't classify them as concussions; they're just, you know, bell-ringing. You'll see stars for a second, and then you're back to normal in two, three seconds, whatever the case may be. That's just the way the game is.” The 38-year-old Fletcher, who has never missed a game in 16 NFL seasons, is decidedly old-school.
