By DON AINES Staff Writer, Martinsburg MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A representative for bus drivers Monday night asked the Berkeley County Board of Education to hold off on sending buses into a subdivision where a driver was assaulted last month. Susan Burner of Hedgesville is a service personnel representative for the bus drivers. She said after addressing the board that sending buses into the Foxcrest Manor subdivision at this time sends the wrong message. Thomas Everhart of Inwood was charged with battery against a school official after allegedly striking bus driver Charles Walker on the morning of Oct. 17, according to a Berkeley County Sheriff's Department report.

charlestown@herald-mail.com HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. - A proposed 42-lot subdivision near Harpers Ferry National Historical Park is drawing criticism from some people who believe it could destroy the area's historic landscape and complicate traffic on U.S. 340. The proposed Benview subdivision also is generating concern from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which is building a firearms training center near the property. One reason the firearms training center was a good match for the area is because the site is surrounded by open land with a low population density, Thomas J. Walters, assistant commissioner of the Office of Training and Development, said in a letter to a county planning official.
