The number of slot machines at the Charles Town (W.Va.) Races now outnumbers the population of Charles Town itself by about 400. What has the track done for Jefferson County and the state? Net slot revenue at all West Virginia tracks stood at $642 million in 2002, more than triple what it had been just three years before. Slot fans say studies show that the equivalent of nearly 3,000 full-time jobs are supported by the track. Along with funding schools, police and seniors, it's boosted local retail sales, promoted tourism, held taxes in check, decreased the welfare rolls, increased property values, contributed to new housing and business starts, boosted charitable giving and, by supporting horse farms, preserved open space.

Republican LeRoy Myers may be the best candidate with the worst luck on the ballot. He filed to run for state delegate in a new district with no incumbent, but when the courts stepped in and redrew the lines, he found himself in the same district as Democratic House Speaker Cas Taylor of Cumberland, one of the most powerful men in Annapolis. Rather than bow out, the Clear Spring contractor has plunged into the challenge full-bore, and a credible candidate he is. He's demonstrated the kind of organization and leadership skills that the Washington County delegation has so sorely craved since the days of Bruce Poole, Doc McClellan - and, of course, Cas Taylor.

Again, Bartlett fails his district To the editor: In a recent letter to the editor, businessman Howard McGinley asks, "I'm wondering if we don't have great little place in Western Maryland needing this kind of national press coverage?" (McGinley was speaking of the peace process held in Shepherdstown, W.Va.). I want to answer McGinley with an unequivocal yes! Yes, Western Maryland is a great place! Yes, Western Maryland could have hosted such an event in one of our gems like Emmitsburg, Hood College, Mt. St. Mary's, Western Maryland College, Frostburg State or Rocky Gap!
