charlestown@herald-mail.com CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Jefferson County Sheriff Everett "Ed" Boober could not generate support Thursday from the Jefferson County Commission to buy video cameras for the department's cruisers. Boober asked the commission last week to approve a $40,000 contract to install the video cameras. Boober said having video cameras inside cruisers serves a number of benefits, such as accurately documenting the actions of deputies in case a complaint is ever made against them.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The weekly Berkeley County Commission meetings are starting to follow a pattern. First on the agenda are the pledge of allegiance and a prayer, followed a couple of hours later by an argument between Commission President Howard Strauss and Sheriff Randy Smith. Voices were not raised by the two Thursday, but they still argued about a COPS grant, buying new police cruisers and the fact that the county took away a fund previously used by the sheriff to buy equipment.

Letters to the Editor 10/27 Cruising law based on appearances? To the editor: With all the discussion about cruising and what to do about, it I have a few questions for Mayor Bruchey. Would you provide your definition of the word "cruising" as it applies to the people who do it? Can you describe us? What criteria would the police use to stop us to ticket us? Seems a fair question, don't you think? Would it be something like people who by appearance, action or the type of car they drive, could be accused of cruising?
