HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. -- About 70 Harpers Ferry residents got their first look Wednesday at a proposed $75 million remake of the century-old Hilltop House resort hotel -- a makeover that will see the demolition of the old structure and replacement with a 179-room high-end luxury property. The renovation will require the Town of Harpers Ferry to rezone more than a block of residential property to commercial, including seven previously private properties now owned by SWaN Investors of Leesburg, Va. "When they get through, they'll own about 10 percent of the town," Harpers Ferry Mayor Jim Addy said.

This recipe will take more production time as well as offer some culinary challenges with knife skills and recipe instructions. For some readers, having two pots going at the same time on the stove might terrify you. Relax, it's easy and the flavors you get out adding coffee to the cream is simply incredible. You can always try variations of coffee to see what you really enjoy, and I am looking forward to trying this recipe again but with pumpkin spice-infused coffee.  I'm hoping the flavor will come across as subtle and not be overwhelmed by the garlic and onions.  In any case, take this recipe and make it you own. Be sure to let me know what you come up in your own kitchen.

A boat ramp on the Shenandoah River was in such disrepair that ingenious fisherman had to create their own ramp on the bank next to it to launch their boats. Doing so eroded the bank, said Jim Hedrick, a district fisheries biologist with the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources in Romney, W.Va. DNR officials and the Jefferson County Parks and Recreation Commission, owner of the ramp at the county's Moulton Park on Bloomery Road off W.Va. 9, partnered in a joint venture to improve the site.
