martinsburg@herald-mail.com INWOOD - On the other side of Cynthia Smailes-Rybak's back yard, cars, pickup trucks and tractor-trailers rumble by, visible and audible as they make their way up and down Interstate 81.

But Smailes didn't like the high speed required on the interstate, and chose instead after ending her shift at Wal-Mart to drive home on U.S. 11, a two-lane road that parallels the interstate.
