'Create WV's' countywide event seeks input

From 5:15-to-6:15 p.m. on Tues., Mar. 18, representatives from Charleston's "Create WV" Festival will be asking the general public for suggestions about the upcoming "Glenville centered" event in October. This planning meeting will take place at the Gilmer County Historical Society's Annex on East Main Street, Glenville. Create WV seeks to give a statewide boost to the communities that it selects by bringing in a wide variety of speakers, musicians, artists and tourists. In fact, Kanawha County State Senator Brooks McCabe, in an unrelated telephone interview, said that he is looking forward to visiting Glenville, along with many other Charleston friends, to see what the county has to offer in the way of cultural events and business opportunities. For further information about this March 18 planning session, contact: Dr. Bob Henry Baber at 304-462-6391.

Glenville City Council this Thurs., 7 p.m.

Due to the snow and ice storm Sun. evening, Mar. 2, the regular public Glenville City Council meeting was canceled and rescheduled for 7 p.m. on this Thurs., Feb. 6 at the upper City Hall room. Mayor Dennis Fitzpatrick invites the public to attend.

River View House to be featured at social

Place the Thurs., Mar. 27 Business After 5 on your pocket calendars! It will be a popular event, at which the community is invited to attend. The hostess will be local attorney, Ms. Shelly Morris DeMarino, and it will be the first public showing of one of the new houses being constructed in the River View subdivision on SR 5 near the old and new bridges to the prison.

Ms. DeMarino states that this opportunity for the public to see one of these modern homes and its amenities at this informal social gathering is an ideal way for everyone, especially those residents interested in new and improved housing, to get acquainted with the scenic River View development neighborhood. For more information, contact: Dave Corcoran, Sr., Co-Chair, at 304-462-7309.

Accidents decrease from last snow

According to Sheriff Larry Gerwig, the snow and ice storm we experienced Sun. night and into Mon. did not, thankfully, increase the number of auto accidents on Gilmer County roads.

Sheriff Gerwig states, "There was only one accident, a two-car crash near Dawson Farms." Dawson Farms is near the turn-off to Cedar Creek State Park.

During the last severe weather event of nearly two weeks ago, 14 accidents were reported to the Sheriff's Dept.

County Commission to meet Fri.

No doubt due to the snowy and icy weather, the Gilmer County Commission postponed its regular Tuesday meeting until 9 p.m. on this Fri., Mar. 7 at the Commission's Room at the Courthouse. The general public is invited to attend.
