Let's see state tighten its belt To the editor: In an effort to balance the budget, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley has proposed a list of tax increases. These increases, along with staggering fuel costs, will have devastating effects on every state resident's lifestyle. Personally, I have been commuting to work from my home in Frostburg to Hagerstown for 12 years. Due to increasing fuel costs, we are moving to Martinsburg, W.Va. I do this with much regret. Frostburg is a wonderful city.

Ted Anderson spent the night of Oct. 15, 1986, crammed into a room with seven other cops in an out-of-the-way Virginia hotel. One officer spent the night in a bathtub and several lay on the floor. Anderson didn't sleep at all. Early the next morning, a Thursday, a caravan of about 100 police vehicles - including Anderson's - made its way up Interstate 81 into Martinsburg, where the largest drug bust in the town's history took place as most of the dealers were still sleeping.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Berkeley County officials gathered around like salesmen in a showroom during a brief ceremony Thursday in Martinsburg to show off several new police vehicles recently placed in service by the county's Sheriff's Department. The eleven new vehicles - six police cruisers and five four-wheel drive sport utility Dodge Durangos - which were presented by the Berkeley County commissioners and by representatives from the Sheriff's department, were purchased as part of the commission's five-year funding plan that will see a regular replacement of the county's fleet, said commissioner Ron Collins.

BOONSBORO karenh@herald-mail.com The Town of Boonsboro's new police chief grew up in the area, bicycled its streets and graduated from Boonsboro High School in 1977. Now that the town police force is back in action, Jeff Hewett is hoping to become even more familiar to area residents. "That's a big thing for me. I want to be a community-oriented police officer. That means getting out and walking the streets and talking to the people, talking to the business owners - just being accessible," Hewett said.

andrews@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - A 10 with a smiley face meant approval. A frowning face was a jeer. In a jovial mood, the "Official Un-Judges" were generous with 10s and frugal with frowns at Saturday's 25th annual Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival parade in Martinsburg. The unsanctioned, frivolous, sideline "reviewing stand" has been a tradition for about 20 years, said Vic Vesper, who borrowed the idea from the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival in Winchester, Va. The Un-Judges set up court Saturday on a high lawn lined with a concrete wall, looking down on the 800 block of West King Street.
