Video-Poker bill's destiny may be decided this week With both houses of the West Virginia Legislature just "5 percent" away from agreement on a bill to regulate video-poker machines, Gov. Bob Wise called a special session this past Saturday to give lawmakers another week to try. We wish them luck, because the funding it would provide will plug a lot of holes in the state's budget. In his State of the State address, Wise estimated that limiting the number of video-poker machines to 9,000 and taxing those would yield $22 million annual, with $12.5 million that total going to the PROMISE scholarship program.

When thirst comes on, the beverage of choice for many Americans is a soft drink. Americans have enjoyed soft drinks for more than 100 years. Today, however, the concern is that Americans are drinking more soda than is healthy for them. Since the mid-1980s, a sharp rise in sugar consumption has occurred. This just happens to coincide with a 47 percent increase in consumption of carbonated soft drinks. It is estimated that each person consumes 14.5 ounces of regular soft drinks per day. Each 12-ounce can of soda contains between 10 and 12 teaspoons of sugar.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The new Internal Revenue Service computing center east of Martinsburg requires about 350 database managers, software specialists and other skilled workers to run its high-tech computer systems. The problem is finding skilled workers to run them. The situation has become so common that the local IRS complex has set up a training program so new employees can run the center's operations. Employees spend up to three weeks in classroom training and are then given on-the-job training that can last up to three years, said Chuck Koeneke, public affairs officer for the IRS. The program is effective, but the downside is that it splits the time of qualified managers, who act as "coaches" to bring workers up to speed, said Koeneke.

If you're an early riser, I'm likely sitting in a terminal at Baltimore/Washington International Airport waiting to board an airplane bound for Orlando, Fla., as you read this. If you sleep in on Sundays, I'll probably be halfway to Walt Disney World by the time your eyes find these words. Either way, I'll be on vacation and a copy of The Morning Herald will be with me. That's right ... I'm taking my newspaper on vacation. If you're a Herald-Mail subscriber or have seen a copy of our newspaper over the past several years, you likely are familiar with our feature that shows residents of the Tri-State area with The Morning Herald, The Daily Mail or The Herald-Mail at their favorite vacation spots.

Editor's note: Tim Rowland is on vacation. His column will resume when he returns next week. This column originally ran Nov. 28, 1999. SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - The closest I've come to death is when I've accidentally stood between a stressed-out woman and the chocolate-bar vending machine in the lunch room. You would have thought I'd stepped between a mother grizzly and her cub. As a man, of course, I don't get it, just as I don't get women's irrational hatred of the TV remote or their inability to speak to a dog or cat in a normal tone of voice.
