martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Steve Allen called out the Army National Guard. Problem was, they were busy. Allen, director of the Berkeley County Office of Emergency Services, hoped the Guard could provide a couple of Humvees and crews to go with paramedics on emergency calls to remote sections of the county because of snow-covered roads. But the vehicles and personnel were tied up with national security missions, he said. Members of the Air National Guard offered crews on a fire truck, who will go with county medics on all calls that require advanced life support, said Monte Conner, field operations supervisor for the Berkeley County Emergency Ambulance Authority.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Two men were killed Monday afternoon when their tractor-trailer went off Interstate 81, crossing a gully and plowing through a fence and a group of trees before coming to rest in a field, police said.

Both men were from Montpelier, Vt. The crash occurred about 2:35 p.m., just north of the Queen Street exit, said West Virginia State Police Trooper M.M. Kingery.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - Saying they do not "have any dog in this fight," members of the Berkeley County Commission and their attorney declined on Thursday to become involved in a problem involving a dilapidated bridge. Because of new weight restrictions, ambulances and fire trucks can no longer cross the Plank Bridge Road bridge, which is not owned by the county or the state, the commissioners said. The bridge apparently is owned by those people who live in a community on the other side of Mill Creek, the commissioners said.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Steve Allen is not picky. If it means he gets one or two new, heavy-duty sport utility vehicles for the Berkeley County Office of Emergency Services, Allen said he doesn't mind if the SUVs have advertisements on them. "I don't care if it says 'Eat at Joe's' on the side," said Allen, director of OES. Allen is asking that a North Carolina company supply his office with two SUVs, at a cost of $1. In return, the vehicles would come with local, regional or national ads on them.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -As rain fell Friday evening, fears about flooding rose, but Gov. Bob Wise was calm when briefed about the situation in Berkeley County, saying it seems as if counties farther to the west could be harder hit. A flood watch is in effect for the Eastern Panhandle, along with Washington County, Md., for the weekend. Whether serious flooding occurs depends on how much rain falls today, and whether warmer temperatures cause the snow to melt more quickly, said Steve Allen, director of the Berkeley County Office of Emergency Services.

When Tom Hanks made a reservation years ago at the Windows on the World restaurant on the top floors of the World Trade Center's North Tower in New York City, he was hoping for a really nice seat. He got one, even though when he showed up for his reservation, he was told, "You're not Tom Hanks. " "I said, 'I certainly am.' I like to tell people I'm the original," said Hanks, 61, who lives in Chambersburg, Pa., and is executive officer of the Franklin County Builders Association.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Emergency officials are working on a plan on how to handle any possible natural or man-made disaster that might happen here, a move that will make the county eligible for supplemental federal money should such a disaster ever occur. Officials are focusing on natural disasters, including flooding, blizzards, hurricanes and tornados. Much of the work centers on historical research - determining when and where such events have happened before, said Steve Allen, director of the Berkeley County Office of Emergency Services.

So far, so good. As the first day of the year 2000 drew to a close, no Y2K computer problems were reported in the Tri-State area.

charlestown@herald-mail.com CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The decision to make Jefferson County the first county in the state to receive a decontamination unit that can be used for terrorist attacks has raised the ire of an emergency official in Berkeley County. The decontamination unit, which is a trailer, contains all the supplies needed to treat people in the event of a terrorist attack or a disaster such as a hazardous materials spill, said Darrell Penwell, director of the Jefferson County Office of Emergency Services, and Barbara Miller, coordinator at the Jefferson County Office of Homeland Security.

Getting a straight answer out of legendary comedic actor Tim Conway is about as easy as corralling cats. For instance, the question “What state are you in?” is responded with a depanned, “Depression.” But it's that silly humor and quick one-liners that have made the 79-year-old Conway a much-loved fixture on TV, in movies and onstage during his more than 50 years in the business. Conway will bring his humor to the Weinberg Center for the Arts stage 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22. So when did Conway realize he was funny?

PIKESIDE, W.Va. -- A firefighter who fell into a burning basement while battling a house fire Wednesday afternoon was rescued in a dramatic incident that rattled the nerves of local emergency officials. Serious fires in Berkeley County are on the rise, and there are not enough firefighters to safely battle them, said Steve Allen, director of the Berkeley County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. Wednesday's fire was reported at 1:51 p.m. in a split-foyer home at 40 Jester Court off Idyllwood Drive, between Pikeside and Darkesville, W.Va.
