CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- The $1 million promised to Jefferson County after the introduction of table games at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races could be in jeopardy because of a "misinterpretation" of the legislation that set up the funding, county officials said Friday. The Jefferson County Commissioners and the county's five municipalities are supposed to share the money, with half going to the commissioners and half to the municipalities based on population.

HAGERSTOWN -- They call themselves "Around the Table," and the idea came as a group of Christian friends gathered for a meal in Tracy Clipp's kitchen. In search of doing something meaningful for a holiday, the group settled on a plan to prepare a community Thanksgiving dinner. This past Thanksgiving was the 10th year for the dinner, which is now served at St. John's Lutheran Church in Hagerstown. Clipp, 39, helps coordinate the meal. "It started with the group of us -- four couples -- sitting around the kitchen table eating potpie," Clipp said.
