The Berkeley County Council took the first steps Thursday to relocate the sheriff's Department's law-enforcement division to a vacant shopping plaza that the county purchased in 2007. By a unanimous vote, the council reversed a surplus property order that had positioned the 5.5-acre plaza in the 500 block of South Raleigh Street to be sold at public auction. A second unanimous vote Thursday authorized council President William L. "Bill" Stubblefield to sign a resolution to convert a City National Bank loan that was obtained to purchase the shopping plaza to a long-term building bond.

The Berkeley County Council voted unanimously Thursday to recruit a "clerk of the works" to act as the county's on-site representative for the planned renovation of the former Martin's grocery store in Martinsburg. The building is being renovated to house the sheriff's law-enforcement division, which is currently headquartered at 802 Emmett Rousch Drive, where deputies work in cramped conditions.  The division shares the building with 911/Central Dispatch and the county's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, which officials say also need additional space.

The trend of swapping disposable grocery bags for reusable cloth and plastic-lined bags has become a popular choice. Reusable bags reduce waste but there are food safety concerns to consider.  Certain foods, such as raw produce, meat, poultry and fish might contain bacteria that cause foodborne illness. The fabric or materials in reusable grocery bags can become contaminated with germs like Salmonella or E. coli from foods or other items. These germs could then cross-contaminate other foods and nonfood items.

When you're married and have two teenagers, evenings out are few and far between. Oh, there are the times spent cheering in the bleachers at a game or the occasions where you quietly sit shoulder to shoulder at a recital, but time for just the two of you? It doesn't happen very often. When opportunity knocks, it is best to take advantage. Last week we planned to attend a Valentine's banquet at our church. I was looking forward to spending time relaxing and talking with other couples.

I am a post-Jell-O generation hold-out. My mom lived and learned to cook during the 1950s and '60s, the heyday of the congealed salad and dessert. So at every picnic, party and family get-together of my youth, there was Jell-O in all its jiggly glory. I learned how to concoct gelatin dishes in a spectrum of colors and forms just from being in the kitchen. I can whip up a lemon Jell-O with sparkling grape juice, a strawberry twist with whipped cream and cream cheese, and a lime delight with apples, celery and nuts.

“This is to the lady calling in wondering what to do with her pop tops, for Ronald Mc-Donald House. You can take them to Funkstown American Legion Post 211. We've been collecting them there for some time, for the Ronald McDonald House. We have cans sitting all the way around our bar. Just bring them in.” - Hagerstown “In order for a DNR officer to make arrests and catch poachers, they'd have to respond to calls. ... I live in an area east of Hagerstown, and we are overrun by poachers, day after day, with no response.” - Hagerstown “Many thanks to Pete Waters and Darrell Strite for the wonderful job they did on the Dargan homecoming.

The Martin's grocery store on Wesel Boulevard had bottles of water, bread, batteries, ice packs, paper towels, toilet paper and milk all in stock, but it was running low on water, paper towels and toilet paper.

Save the date for next year's Green Fest To the editor: All we've heard since May 12 has been how wonderful the fourth annual Boonsboro Green Fest was. Make no mistake about it, we sincerely appreciate the positive feedback, but those compliments have been grossly misdirected. All the kudos should go to the 142 vendors, 55 sponsors, more than 100 volunteers and 3,500 attendees who made the Green Fest the most successful ever. They and many other participants over the years are the ones who are responsible for the success of what has become the largest community, earth-friendly event in Western Maryland.
