Nine teen dancers busted their best moves Friday night at Valley Mall in the auditions for the second annual JUST DANCE competition, hoping to pick up the $500 grand prize in the finals set for later this month. There were a lot more dancers than the six individuals and trio that took the concourse stage, but the others did it just for fun before an appreciative crowd of family, friends and shoppers that ringed the venue a few rows deep.

MARTINSBURG, W.VA. One whiff of funnel cakes and Cort Grubb and Mandy Chapman knew there might be a future for biodiesel. The Musselman High School 10th-graders spent three days in November 2005 riding in circles atop a farm tractor behind Chapman's Berkeley County, W.Va., home to test a theory that an even mixture of corn oil and diesel fuel would perform better than diesel fuel alone. Filling an extra fuel tank attached to the tractor with a half-gallon of diesel fuel, a 50/50 mixture of the fuel and oil and lastly, the oil alone, at the start of each day's trial, the students rode together on a 194-meter track to test their hypothesis.

One of the most common is the so-called "club jar," nicknamed the "cookie jar. " Each game is sealed in a manila envelope. The tickets are sometimes dumped into a jar, hence the name. Each ticket contains four digits, ranging from 0001 to 1600, giving a player four chances to win with each $1 ticket.
