South Hagerstown boys soccer coach Ryan Myers chose to look at the positive side. Considering his club absorbed a 5-0, non-league drubbing at the hands of Hedgesville in the rain Thursday night, that wasn't the easiest thing to do. “Hedgesville has a good team. They're well-coached, and they're a Triple-A school,” said Myers. “In the first half, we were only down by two on an unlucky penalty and an own-goal. We played them pretty even.” The second half, however, was a slightly different story.

Fire raced through a building containing a gun business and a motorcycle shop along Baxter Road west of Hedgesville Wednesday morning in Berkeley County, according to a spokesman for the Hedgesville Volunteer Fire Co. When firefighters arrived at the scene, fire was coming through the roof, Lt. Bradley Crowell said in a telephone interview. Battling the blaze was challenging at first, because there were no fire hydrants in the area, Crowell said.

“West Virginia or elsewhere, people selling dope, driving a second time drunk, speeding from the police: Have a hard-labor camp, Quonset huts, one pot-bellied stove, double bed racks, 6-to-10-hour days, working days, of picking up trash, or anyone that needs help. It would ease the prison problem. Don't like the labor camp, then send them to prison.” - Charles Town, W.Va.   “Probably our second biggest ally in the Middle East is Egypt. Of course, Israel is No. 1. And where's our president at?
