    First drought this year hits state crops, lawns

  • The two Madisons

    More than two dozen towns and 19 counties (plus a parish in Louisiana) share the last name of the fourth president of the United States. But with the possible exception of that county with bridges out in Iowa, none of James Madison's namesakes is as...
  • Winter storm warnings in Garrett, Allegany

     
    The hardy residents of Garrett and western Allegany counties - and anyone headed west on I-68 - are under winter storm warnings today and tomorrow as a storm system moves up the Ohio River valley. Garrett could see 6 to 12......
  • Brutal winter blast struck 110 years ago
