"Every mountain between our two coasts, every island over which an American flag flies, every acre of farmland, every tree, every lake, every stream or field was paid for by a veteran. Let us never forget those who paid the price. "  Those words were part of the keynote speech given at Monday's Memorial Day program at War Memorial Park by Ann Brown, director of the Martinsburg VA Medical Center.  The rest of the ceremony was the somber Memorial Day ritual — the national anthem, presentation of the colors, the Pledge of Allegiance, wreath-laying and the rifle salute.

For the last two years, the annual Art and Earth Celebration at War Memorial Park drew 50 to 70 vendors and more than 1,000 patrons. This year Mother Nature intervened with cold wind and rain to keep vendors and patrons away.  By noon Saturday, fewer than 20 vendors and nonprofit groups had set up tables and tents, and some of the vendors were already leaving. None of the scheduled bands showed up, and few patrons could be seen checking out booths under the pavilion or braving the weather outside to visit the tents.
