Jo Ann Rankin is a woman who heeds that tug on her heart.

William Rankin was apprehensive, he said, but Jo Ann made a go of it. Right off the bat, having the market wasn't enough. Jo Ann, who William said has “a heart for community service,” began hosting fundraisers at the shop to benefit various organizations.

HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. - The Harpers Ferry Flea Market will open for the 2008 season this weekend, the operators of the market said in a news release. There are rumors that the land has been sold to a housing developer but the land is still in the hands of the current owner, operators Dan Barnett and Ron Nowell said in the release. "There are no bulldozers ripping through the flea market as some believe," Barnett and Nowell said. Supporters of the flea market expressed concern about the future of the market at the intersection of U.S. 340 and Millville Road after the Jefferson County Planning Commission last summer approved a community impact statement for an apartment and duplex development there.

More than 100 vendors at an historic Harpers Ferry (W.Va.) Flea Market -- an entrepreneurial icon that has been a way of life for the vendors and their customers for 27 years -- will soon have to find a new place to buy and sell their wares. An unanimous vote Tuesday night by the Jefferson County Planning Commission gives permission to Dr. James Gibson, a Berkeley County dentist, to build a 55-unit multifamily subdivision. Gibson's family has owned the 12-acre tract where the flea market currently sits at the intersection of U.S. 340 and Millville Road since 1942.

After 33 years of teaching, I got to start all over again To the editor: I have changed jobs and it was because there was a decision to fire all the staff - teachers, custodians and secretaries - at my previous school in Maryland. Had that not been the case, I would never have had the courage or fortitude to start all over, this time as an eighth-grade algebra I and pre-algebra teacher at Hedgesville (W.Va.) High School. There is only one word to sum up this year - awesome!
