MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- An ordinance regulating the location of "exotic entertainment" such as strip clubs is expected to be adopted next week by the Berkeley County Commission. Commission legal counsel Norwood Bentley III on Thursday presented a slightly modified version of the exotic entertainment ordinance, which the commission had adopted in 2004, but was ruled invalid last year by a circuit judge. The new ordinance, which was made possible by authorizing legislation passed by state lawmakers June 2, would not apply to adult bookstores, novelty shops and similar businesses unless the individuals inside were nude or semi-nude, Bentley said after Thursday's commission meeting.

Much to the delight of his relatives and friends, Elgin Baylor Lumpkin danced during family cookouts and reunions when he was growing up. “Michael Jackson or something used to come on and I'd be off to the races. They'd start screaming and rooting me on, and that was appealing to me. I really found some comfort in stuff like that. It just felt good to feel appreciated, to feel like you can make people feel good,” Lumpkin, now better known by his stage name, Ginuwine, said during a telephone interview from the kitchen of his home in Brandywine, Md. But his talent went further than receiving praise from his family.

Dear members of the Academy, I am writing today because I just emailed my vote for best movie of the year and I hope you will join me in supporting “Argo” as the winner. For years, you have picked some of the most boring movies ever - “The King's Speech,” anyone? - and here is a chance for you to right nearly a century's worth of wrongs. I know we have one week to go before the red carpet is rolled out and the Guccis and Carolina Herreras are covering the stars, but work with me here.

Through an informal vote Tuesday night, the Hagerstown City Council gave its approval for city staff to entertain purchase offers on a city-owned property on Public Square. Later in the work session meeting at City Hall, the five-member council also informally agreed to authorize staff to enter into negotiations to purchase a blighted building along West Washington Street. Both actions, the sale of property at 11, 12, 15 and 16 Public Square as well as the “strategic” acquisition and preparation for resale of 43-53 W. Washington St., are steps toward turning city-owned or blighted properties in Hagerstown's downtown back over to private hands, according to John Lestitian, the city's director of community and economic development.
