charlestown@herald-mail.com CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A proposed townhouse project near Morgan's Grove Park which drew controversy years ago is being pursued again by the developer. When Gene Henry proposed the townhouse project in 1995, opponents complained that the development was not compatible with the area and posed a threat to Town Run, a nearby stream that flows through Shepherdstown, W.Va. Most recently, Henry proposed to sell the land where the townhouses would be built to the county to allow for an expansion of Morgan's Grove Park.

Warner's the one To the editor: Subject: West Virginia deserves better It seems every few days, this great state is on the bottom of another list. WHY? Leadership, or I should say lack of leadership. In our primary election two months ago, I wondered if the GOP would choose the right person for their nominee for governor. Well, I have met and talked with Monty Warner and no doubt he is the right person. A talented leader who has served this great nation with a 25 year career in the military, Monty Warner is ready and able to serve the people of this state.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A decision by the Washington Township Planning Commission this week to recommend denial of a 110-unit townhouse project on Welty Road won't stop construction of at least some homes on the tract, its owner said Wednesday. Developer Ted Snowberger had asked the township to rezone nearly 19 acres on what was once part of the Hollengreen Farm to multi-family residential. He said Wednesday he is changing his request to single-family zoning or R-1. The Washington Township Supervisors will hold a public hearing on Snowberger's request on Aug. 2, said Jerry Zeigler, township zoning enforcement officer.

shappell@herald-mail.com Several months after a county landowner initiated informal talks with the Smithsburg Town Council about an annexation proposal, the idea has been shelved. The landowner's attorney said he is unclear whether the annexation or possible development of townhouses on the property will be pursued in 2004, but believes the woman still is interested in the prospects. Mayor Mildred "Mickey" Myers said last week that Cave Hill Road resident Martha Fleming and her representatives have not responded to a letter from the council stating she would need to make a formal, written request for the town to consider annexing her property.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com It opened up a couple of weeks ago and has been eating truckload after truckload of gravel since then. Residents nearby are worried about what dangers lie within the 130-foot-deep sinkhole off Hack Wilson Way. Pat Arnold, a substitute teacher who lives in one of the two dozen townhouses around the sinkhole, said he worries about the hole because of all the children in the neighborhood. They skateboard and play basketball in a parking lot adjacent to the hole, which Arnold estimates is no more than 10 or 15 feet across.
