Halfway residents oppose billiards parlor Most of the more than 50 people who showed up for a zoning hearing Wednesday night were opposed to a billiards parlor and restaurant proposed for York Road near the Western Sizzlin' restaurant on Halfway Boulevard. Opponents said their chief concern was about Hagerstown Billiards Inc.'s plan to serve beer. Jason Carbaugh, co-owner of Hagerstown Billiards with his brother Gary, told the Washington County Board of Zoning Appeals that a special exception should be granted for the parlor because it is functionally similar to principal permitted uses in the Business Local zone, including taverns.

The Washington County Board of Zoning Appeals voted 4-1 Wednesday to reject a special exception required for a billiards parlor and restaurant proposed for York Road on Halfway Boulevard. The majority of the board sided with nearby residents, who had testified against the billiards parlor plan at a hearing two weeks ago. Opponents said their top concern was about plans to serve alcohol. Hagerstown Billiards Inc., co-owned by brothers Jason and Gary Carbaugh, had applied for the special exception for a building known as The Village, which has housed an amateur radio shop and a piece goods shop.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - In the stage and film versions of "The Music Man," character Harold Hill sings of the perils of having a pool table in a community. That kind of trouble is unwanted in Waynesboro, according to a local couple who has taken steps to prevent it at their new business. No alcohol is permitted at Bobby D's Billiards & Cafe. Children younger than 14 must be accompanied by a parent. "We've been trying to gear it to serve pool players and families," proprietor Bobby Davis said.

He's been playing pool for "40 couple years," beginning when he used to save his school lunch money to shoot pool.

MONT ALTO, PA. - Pool champion Richard Barney has a big break - and it's taking him to Germany. By winning a U.S. nine-ball championship in his age category, Richard earned a berth in a world event in November. This month, he'll play in the U.S. Open nine-ball pool championship in Virginia. He has won other tournaments locally - sometimes against adults, sometimes as the youngest player to win, according to his growing résumé. At 15 years old, Richard is fairly sure he wants a life of cue sticks, felt and corner pockets.
