OK, we know it's been unseasonably warm, but don't be fooled. Before long, area drivers will again face snow and ice. And potential danger. Right next to the flashlight, jumper cables and blankets - must-have items for wintertime driving - should be nonperishable snacks, games and a bag of kitty litter, according to the Maryland State Highway Administration. "You know when your wheels get stuck in the snow and they kind of spin around? That's why I carry a big bag of cat litter in my trunk," said Chuck Gischlar, a spokesman for the SHA.

More than 50 cases of unsightly, if not also unsafe, properties have been presented to Berkeley County's Safe & Clean Agency for mediation since it was formed in 2010. “It's a never-ending cycle,” said Donna Seiler, who, as a litter control officer and code enforcement official for the county, has fielded hundreds of complaints about excessive debris and condemned structures. The latest case to trigger action by Berkeley County Council on Thursday involves a mobile home park near Martinsburg Mall at the west end of Mall Drive.

"It made sense we'd help out taking care of the community," said Jamie Baker, secretary of the Rouzerville Business Association.

School to Work: Uncle Sam decides what's best for kids To the editor: I've been looking into the federal "School to Work Opportunities Act" (STWOA), which our wonderful Congress passed in 1994.

" She's hoping it will turn Charlie, who is currently her worst enemy, into her best friend. It's not that Charlie means to be bad. He's just a love-bitten free spirit who happens to enjoy gnawing on the objects of his adoration. They include my friend, her granddaughter Raven and assorted relatives and acquaintances.
