MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- The annual Labor Day breakfast at War Memorial Park is about tradition, and Calvin Kisner is a good example. Kisner said he has been coming to the War Memorial Park fundraiser for 30 years, and during Monday's breakfast, Kisner recalled walking to the event when he lived in nearby neighborhoods like Lincoln Drive. Kisner talked about his 31-year career at the Martinsburg post office downtown and his seven siblings, who include his younger brother, William N. "Shug" Kisner, a former Berkeley County sheriff.

TRI-STATE -- For many people in the Tri-State area, Labor Day is just that - another day to labor, little different from any other. "We work every holiday," said Kendra Bailey, an employee at Sheetz on Edwin Miller Boulevard in Martinsburg, W.Va. The convenience store is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Bailey said her shift Monday began at 6 a.m. and would end at 2 p.m., meaning her entire day wasn't taken up with work. "I'm going to a cookout after I get off," she said.

Begun in the 1880s as a way to exhibit the strength of labor and trade organizations, Labor Day used to be more clearly defined. In days gone by, public schools rarely started classes until after Labor Day. Colleges operated on a fall-spring semester schedule that traditionally got under way toward the end of September. Most families begin settling into a routine that signals the end of summer and beginning of fall on that first Monday of the month - earlier bedtimes for children, less TV, more homework, and so on. Even fashion rules used to be strictly delineated by Labor Day. At Lena's of Hagerstown, at 1 W. Franklin St., many customers still adhere to the time-honored rule about not wearing white after Labor Day. "It depends on the customer," said Pat Wolfe, a sales representative at the dress shop.

Stotler, who served as master of ceremonies. Family groups were set up at picnic tables and under trees close to the bandstand where local musicians performed for free.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - Down on pit row, last-minute adjustments had been made. Any small slip could cost the drivers both track time and a trophy. Tires, motors, even shoulder harnesses had been checked. Now it was time to get down to the business of winning. With the dragsters roaring like a Metallica concert, it didn't take long for the air to fill with the smell of rubber and smoke. And the crowd loved it - especially the families who came to watch their youngsters rip down a one-eighth-mile track at 85 mph. Junior dragsters - ages 8 to 17 - were among the racers Saturday afternoon at the Mason-Dixon Dragway's Labor Day Classic.
