Most redevelopment projects in downtown Charles Town have been done in the city's east end with little activity in the west end, Mayor Peggy Smith said Thursday. That's been changing since the announcement last fall of plans for a new CVS pharmacy store at the corner of West Washington and North West streets. The city of Charles Town, the planning commission and the Charles Town Historic Landmarks Commission have all approved the project even though four buildings in the Downtown Charles Town Historic District have to be razed to make room for the pharmacy, City Manager Joe Consentini said this week.

According to the old saying, you have to walk before you can run. It was a little different at West End. The Little League All-Stars walked to get runs and then got runs because of hits.

West End travels to face Maugansville tonight at 6. "My philosophy is pitching, defense and timely hitting," said West End manager Bill Nutter.
