Charles Town Racing Secretary Jimmy Hammond said he hopes the West Virginia thoroughbred racetrack will not have to resort to trimming purses in 2005. Gov. Joe Manchin, searching for ways to pay off some debt dealing with the state workmen's compensation issue, has targeted the four state racetracks and other industries for financial assistance. Manchin determined that the four state racetracks would use a percentage of their video lottery revenues toward paying off a state debt.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Shaniqua R. Peterson, 13, hesitated just a moment before leaning in to hug the 84-year-old man seated in front of her. The girl expressed thanks as she and retired Army Sgt. Jim Hammond embraced. As she pulled away, her fingers lingered on the Purple Heart affixed to Hammond's chest while he explained the meaning behind some of his many medals. "I felt kind of in awe because the soldiers, all they went through, inspires me," Shaniqua said. Shaniqua shared her desire to join the Marine Corps with Hammond, who was among 47 current and past members of the military honored during a Community Veterans Day Celebration Service held Sunday.

Some property values in Berkeley County have stabilized after consecutive years of decline, but Berkeley County Council President Anthony J. “Tony” Petrucci's budget outlook for 2013-2014 remains conservative. “My goal is to keep the levy rate the same or even lower if we can,” Petrucci said Friday. Berkeley County Council, which acts as the county's budget-balancing arm, reviewed several accounts directly under its control Thursday as part of ongoing work to prepare next year's budget.

Sometimes it's nice to see a familiar face. Especially when you are just barely of legal age, posted on a remote island and fighting a war. For Howell Hammond, now 85, of Chambersburg, Pa., that familiar face belonged to Calvin Sheeler, also 85, of Hagerstown. The men recounted their tale Saturday at the 58th annual Last Man's Club of World War II memorial service and luncheon at Morris Frock American Legion Post 42 in Hagerstown's north end. Hammond and Sheeler both grew up in Hagerstown.

GAMBRILLS, Md. -- Aaron Stottlemyer plays baseball by one motto. The North Hagerstown baseball team decided to adopt it. "I go up to the plate with one motto in mind: 'I want it more,'" Stottlemyer said. "I know if I do that, I will get it before the other guy. " Stottlemyer laid down a key suicide squeeze bunt and the Hubs used a lot of patience for an eight-run sixth inning en route to a 10-4 victory over Hammond on Tuesday in the Maryland Class 2A state semifinals at Arundel High School.

Little League parents would have made Rodney Dangerfield cringe. They would be the worst nightmare for the late, great comedian, especially if part of his schtick missed the mark. “Tough crowd,” he would utter. “I get no respect.” When it comes to Little League - more specifically all-star tournament season - there is very little respect to be handed out. That's what makes the old-school style of people like Larry Hammond so refreshing. Hammond is the Maryland District 1 Little League administrator, clearly a Dangerfield-esque position.
