Walking into The Station Grill is like walking into a neighborhood gathering place, the kind of place where you feel comfortable even if you don't live in the neighborhood. The grill has the kind of atmosphere I like - casual, comfortable and easy to be in. On this night, there was a mixed crowd of young, old and everything in between. Blue collar and white collar workers fit easily into the same space. At the Station Grill, you can sit with your friends at the massive bar or in the dining area.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com Scattered along a mulch road amid the campsite for Confederate soldiers, small signs of something big were everywhere Wednesday afternoon. The signs were made of wood, attached to stakes and pounded into the ground. A few read "1st Division Gen. Clark," "Cavalry," "Artillery Gen. Travis," and "Civilians. " Re-enactors used them to determine where they should set up. It's all part of the 140th Commemoration of the Battle of Antietam, set to begin Friday, with battle re-enactments scheduled for Saturday and Sunday.

MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - Beginning today at noon, area residents will have the opportunity to avoid the 300-plus-mile trip to Charleston, W.Va., to gain a little insight on just how the state Legislature works, if only in the off-season. In addition to the 60-day regular session that begins each year in January, lawmakers are expected to take part in interim committee meetings, which are held to study issues and potential legislation. All of the meetings, which will be held today through Tuesday afternoon at the Holiday Inn in Martinsburg and other locations in the Eastern Panhandle, are open to the public, and elected officials are hoping area residents attend and participate in the sessions.

HAGERSTOWN A man of numbers, math instructor Marvin Shubert said he was wondering how many students he has taught during more than three decades at Hagerstown Junior and Community colleges. The formula wasn't hard, but the results were staggering. About 14,200 individuals, he figures. "Totaled, I thought that's a pretty good-sized town that I had," Shubert said. When he retires this summer, Shubert will join the college's faculty alumni. He and some of his former colleagues gathered Sunday for a faculty reunion that drew about 40 current and retired professors and their spouses.
