A piece of hoopster history



A subscriber mailed this newspaper clipping to us recently, wondering if local readers might know the story behind the Berkeley Springs Oilerettes. We confess we don’t, so now’s your chance to help identify who the basketball players were, and how they got their name. If you have a “Photo of the Week” – from a winning team to a train run by steam, from long long ago or just the other day -- why not lend it to The Morgan Messenger?
