MAKING HEADLINES

Nothing, zip, zilch, nada

Hampshire County completed a week without a new case of Covid-19 Thursday, the state’s Department of Health and Human Resources says.

That’s a 1st since cases started popping up here in late March 2020 — nearly 16 months ago. About 170 people were tested here last week.

7/24 for 24/7 (get it?)

Sheetz will offer a free cup of self-serve coffee or fizzy drink Saturday for first responders (the guys and galls on call 24/7, and the date is 7/24). This is the 4th year for the 7/24 giveaway.

Healthy with Walmart

Walmart is staging a wellness day Saturday at its West Virginia stores.

Customers can get health screenings and wellness resources at the stores’ pharmacies as well as immunizations in 1 easy location.

ALSO: A 65-year-old woman in Green Spring fell down 13 steps Thursday evening, severly injuring herself. The Springfield Valley Rescue Squad responded. The woman was life-flighted for treatment of her injuries.

SPORTS

Uncontested Rebels run to states

The Riverside Rebels won the American Legion Area 4 championship for the 5th straight season on Wednesday after the announcement that Berkeley Post 14 was disqualified from postseason play. A snafu with roster paperwork eliminated Berkeley allowing Riverside to advance to states unchallenged.

Also: Hampshire football is hosting a 7-on-7 and “Big Man Competition” this afternoon at 4 p.m. on Sunrise Summit. The Trojans will compete against teams from Spring Mills, Frankfort, Keyser, Moorefield, Petersburg, East Hardy and James Wood. Check out the sports section in the Hampshire Review next Wednesday for brief synopsis.
