Plows, dump trucks, front-end loaders, personal snow blowers and shovels were out in full force Tuesday, but it could be the weekend or later before all side and residential streets in Tri-State towns are cleared, officials say. In Martinsburg, W.Va., clean-up crews first focused on the town's main thoroughfares - King Street, Queen Street and Winchester Avenue. Police closed one block of Queen Street at a time, while city and contracted crews loaded the snow into trucks and hauled it to a former landfill off John Street, said City Manager Mark Baldwin.

HAGERSTOWN - More than six months after flames tore through the roof of the historic Women's Club, modern engineering was at work Thursday to re-cover the century-old landmark. Crews from S.

Ken Wiseley, owner of Wise Construction in Fairplay, which took the lead on the job, said workers built the trusses over the last two weeks, allowing the roof sections to be installed over a few days instead of more slowly.
