charlestown@herald-mail.com CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The Jefferson County Commission on Thursday decided against taking action on a proposed law to control excessive noise after a local audiologist said the law does not go far enough to control noise. In their proposed noise law, the commissioners are seeking to control noise that would be the equivalent of 65 decibels or louder. A small orchestra produces a noise level of about 70 decibels, said Martinsburg audiologist Michael J. Zagarella, who spoke during a public hearing on the law. Zagarella said he has examined many noise ordinances used in other areas and most of them limit noise to 45 decibels.

Jamal Koram's roots as a storyteller come from many places. As a child, he would listen to the adults in his family spin yarns at the dinner table. Teachers and friends exposed him further to different cultures and traditions. A professional storyteller for almost 20 years, Koram used these influences to form his own style, which uses song, music and inflection to tell stories and morality lessons to children and adults worldwide. He makes about 100 appearances a year at concerts, festivals and by special arrangement, he said.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com Marcus C. Thomas isn't sure whether he'd be painting today if March 3, 1986, had turned out differently. It was on that day that, while skiing, Thomas fell and slid head-first into the base of a tree, breaking his neck and fourth cervical vertebrae. As he adjusted to life as a man paralyzed from the shoulders down, Thomas received a set of watercolors for Christmas that year. Thomas is one of around 170 artists with work on display at the 28th Annual Fall Mountain Heritage Arts and Crafts Festival outside of Harpers Ferry.

charlestown@herald-mail.com CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Following months of discussions about how strict it should be, the Jefferson County Commission on Thursday passed a noise control law that will make it illegal to make noise louder than 65 decibels. The commission was considering controlling noise at that level, but a Martinsburg, W.Va., audiologist told the commissioners recently he did not believe the law went far enough to control noise. Michael J. Zagarella said most laws that have been passed to control noise limit the decibel level to about 45 decibels.

CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. - Some county residents believed several years ago that Jefferson County officials were going to extremes by considering a law controlling barking dogs, but other residents continue to complain about the problem, a county official said Sunday. A couple of families have written letters to the county commission recently pushing for a barking dog law in the county, according to Jefferson County Commission member Rusty Morgan. Morgan said such laws are becoming common in other areas and the commissioners again are considering passing a law that would set up a system of fines for people who let their dogs bark excessively.
