marlob@herald-mail.com The bidders at Sunday's auction for West Virginia State Police Trooper R.J. Elswick included fellow officers who came from several states, some avid sports enthusiasts and even Elswick family members who drove four hours for the event at Hagerstown's Four Points Sheraton.

She and her sister, Susan Elswick Fisher, and their husbands were spirited bidders during the auction, which attracted more than 70 people and raised more than $10,000.
