    Clarksburg City Council approved a second reading of the ordinance to acquire the Rose Garden Theater, Thursday night.
    Clarksburg City Council met Thursday night to discuss ‘The Robinson Grand Theater', also known as the ‘Rose Garden Theater', that the city plans to acquire. 

Baseball fans in Bridgeport are hoping for a new baseball stadium but they may have to wait a bit longer.

Mayor Jim Christie said the city is still negotiating after the New York Penn League announced plans to bring a team to Morgantown.

Christie said it's unclear how that might affect business in Bridgeport but that a similar situation exists between Beckley and Princeton.

"The owner of the Beckley team said that he doesn't feel threatened whatsoever by the Princeton club. And really feels he's satisfied with the operation he has in Beckley. So, I know it's being done," Mayor Christie said.

Christie said the team's owner is still interested in Bridgeport.

Bridgeport's team would play in the Frontier League.
