MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Berkeley County Clerk John W. Small Jr. told county commissioners Thursday he was "strictly opposed" to opening satellite locations for early voting for elections, primarily because of the extra security, equipment and staffing needed to make it viable. "It's going to cost the county a whole lot of money to even set up one outside location," Small said. State lawmakers this year passed legislation that allows counties to provide additional locations for early voting, in addition to the County Clerk's office.

Bells tolled and bugles sounded at Hagerstown City Park Tuesday evening as the community paused to remember emergency personnel and those in the armed forces who lost their lives in the line of duty. Some stopped to reminisce in front of the 9/11 memorial at the park about the day 12 years ago, a beautiful late summer day not unlike Tuesday, when two planes flew into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon was attacked, and passengers fought with hijackers as they brought down an airliner near Shanksville, Pa. Remembrance in the Park was a tribute to lost lives, at war and at home, to terrorist attacks and other emergencies.

As fall approaches and the weather cools, the omnipresent brown marmorated stink bug will begin looking for a nice, cozy place to stay. So researchers at the USDA Appalachian Fruit Research Station in Jefferson County, W.Va., are asking the public to help them figure out why the bugs choose some houses over others. Since its introduction to the United States from Asia in the late 1990s, the stink bug has spread to 41 states, the District of Columbia and Ontario, Canada. The bugs damage crops and are basically pesky because they invade homes in the winter.
