There was no Mummers Parade this year, but the Alsatia Club still chose a queen. It was a welcome, salvageable slice of tradition for club members on Saturday, after the disappointment of canceling the annual parade because of a snowstorm. Each year, each of Washington County's high schools has a representative in the competition. One of the princesses becomes the queen by chance. All receive a gift-wrapped box with a silver pendant. Whoever gets the one gold-plated pendant becomes the queen.

In his more than 50 years of real estate ventures, Benson Fogle says his purchase of the Shenandoah Hotel building in downtown Martinsburg stands alone - and not in a good way. “I've never had a property I wasn't able to find tenants for until I ran into the Shenandoah,” Fogle said in a recent interview. Built in the 1920s by community investors, the hotel, its restaurant and ballroom once was a civic and social center for Martinsburg. Former U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy visited and actors Debbie Reynolds and Robert Mitchum once stayed at the five-story landmark on the corner of Martin and Queen streets.
