    Way back in the day, this was a place that used to pop up on here every year or so. The threads were fun.

    Ugh. So there’s a Martinsburg and a Martinsville, and one is is Virginia and the other is in West Virginia.

    And I’d Don’t Know is at third base.

    Yep. Whenever the Martinsville gig came open, the threads were quite entertaining mainly because that paper had a dreadful editor who has long since retired.

    Martinsville has a NASCAR track in Southside Virginia. Martinsburg is in the Eastern Panhandle of WV near Harpers Ferry.

    No one can afford to live within 50 miles of D.C. anymore, so yes, booming.

    Martinsburg is a pretty decadent little city, from my experience. But they are right about having a D-II athletic power nearby in Shepherd.

    There used to be horse racing pretty close, too, in Charles Town.
