ROUZERVILLE, Pa. - Bob Backer remembers enthusiasm felt in Rouzerville just before Wal-Mart and Lowe's came to town two years ago. "Once we heard they were coming, it kind of re-engerized the area," said Backer, president of the Rouzerville Business Association and a 25-year Rouzerville businessman. "I think that our growth began when we started the things with Wal-Mart and Lowe's," said Ann Backer, his wife and fellow RBA board member. The big box stores have been strategically placed to usher in an era of commercial development and draw shoppers from out of state, according to Washington Township (Pa.)

ROUZERVILLE, PA. - More than four years have passed since the Washington Township (Pa.) Supervisors rezoned 1,000 acres of farmland in one night. Their decisions on Jan. 19, 2004, and many since have opened up parts of the township to development around the path of Washington Township Boulevard, a $14.3 million relief route planned north of Waynesboro. The focus of township officials thus far has been concentrated on the four to five miles engineered between Pa. 16 in Rouzerville to Pa. 997 near Tomstown Road.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Washington Township Planning and Zoning Commission heard further plans Monday night for the design of a 26-acre commercial and residential development off of Washington Township Boulevard. Because of traffic concerns and uncertainty about a designed walkway, the commission tabled preliminary plans for the project that is north of the Wal-Mart and Lowe's stores. "It's probably six months away from anything being built," said code enforcement officer Jerry Zeigler.

FALLING WATERS, W.Va. - Terri Cookus has lived around the Falling Waters area all her life and she can't believe how the area is changing. U.S. 11, which parallels Interstate 81 in the area, would wind through open country and little communities like Bedington, W.Va., and Marlowe, W.Va. Now, strip malls, a bank, residential development and other commercial growth has sprouted up. "I have friends that move away then come back and can't believe it," Cookus said. And the latest addition?

HAGERSTOWN - Hagerstown police were looking for the man charged in the Dec. 14 theft of a wheelchair from the Wal-Mart on Garland Groh Boulevard, Sgt. Paul Kifer said Thursday. John Raymond Huntzberry, 18, was charged with felony theft, Kifer said in a telephone interview. Tony Faison, 23, of Hagerstown, left his wheelchair with the store's greeter while he used a motorized cart to do some shopping that day. When he returned to find his chair missing, Faison, who has spastic paraplegia, was left wondering how he would get home or to his job as a stocker at a convenience store, or how he would afford to replace the $3,000 chair that was custom-built to keep his disability from getting any worse.
