Page 4A -- The Glenville l)emocrat/Pathfinder -- Thursday, January 29, 2009 PSD News: State Route 5 Project GSG's Martin Luther King Holiday program nearing completion with Dusk was uplifting to all people ... continued ... Continued from page 1A "bubbling in his soul," and his very excitement to speak on this occasion• Being that Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday was celebrated just the pre- vious day, State Del. Moore divulged that he had never viewed the "I Have a Dream" speech. He l-Eels that in- stead of saying that we have a dream, we ought to he seizing the day, striv- ing to actualize our dreams. Del. Moore vowed that, as Ameri- cans, we have a promise to keep to each other in working together. Since this same day was Presiden- tial Inauguration Day, he indicated that he had not heard President Obama's Inaugural speech; however, he said that the message should be that we, as Americans, have been given additional chances to make a difference. The Inaugural Day message should be that we all have an equal seat at the table of opportunity, he emphasized. It isn't about overcoming, as heard in King's speech• It is about doing, firmly, stating that even one person can make a difference• Del. Moore sees part of his purpose as helping anyone and everyone be all they can be. He left off for a moment to convey greetings to the audience from Gov- ernor Joe Manchin, State Senate Presi- dent Earl Ray Tomblin, and House of Delegates Speaker Richard Thomp- son. Del. Moore then returned to his word of encouragement and enlight- enment. He plainly stated that we all have a purpose; however, there are three things we must do: hear the call, an- swer the call, and act upon the call. If we do not do those things, we will not reach our full potential. Del. Moore reminded the audience that every person has self worth and value. Our achievements and poten- tial are not about us, but about what we can do to benefit others• We are all connected in some manner. He had the audience members take the hand, or hands, of those close to them, look them in the eyes and repeat alter him words telling each other that we are shining stars, and we can truly shine in our own potential. He encouraged those present not to be afraid of trying, and not to be afraid of failing. Del. Moore admitted he has made some bad decisions in his life, as well as some ?wrong turns;" however, he got back up, and let others bless lais life, so that he, in turn, is able to bless others. He suffers no delusions of gran- deur, and humbly indicated he under- stands that his contribution to the world is small. One person's contri- bution is small in comparison to the scale of the world; however, we can- not diminish the value of anyone. Everyone's part is important and es- sential. Rene Descartes' aphilosopher, once coined the term, "I think, therefore, I am." Del. Moore vowed our thoughts influence, and become our actions. He encouraged all present not to ac- cept things as they appear on the sur- face. He encouraged all to dig deep, do research, but not only in the academic sense of research. "If we do nothing, we will not succeed. We need to ask questions, think about, and analyze what our mind perceives," he added. Del. Moore was born in West Vir- ginia, lived in Ohio for approximately 21 years, and moved back to McDowell County in 1992. ¢ r Longabereer Basket dnd Coach Purse Bingo Saturday Feb. 7, 2009.

He noted that a statement of the work to be accomplished would be necessary. The estimated cost for this engineering work-up would be $30,000, he calculated. The Board, consisting of Chair- m~in Bill Stalnaker and members, Ed Talbott and Sally Mathess, ap- proved the hiring of Region 7 to handle the grant: Costs, however, can't be incurred until the grant is approved by the appropriate gov- ernmental granting agency, the Board stated• Region 7 has one year to finish the grant application. In continuing comments, Chair- man Stalnaker asserted, "We want to move on Cox's Mills ASAP. We'll need to learn what the cost per cus- tomer will be for us, hopeful]y it will be as low as possible." In other business, the Board -- • Granted Adam Fairman, of Fairman's Building Components fac- tory, a reduction in the cost of a re- placement master meter from $278 to $155, due to some contingent prob- lems with that job; • Wrote offa $36.47 water bill of a person who left the county; • Paid a SR 5 Project Requisition from Region 7 for $168,074.51; • Reviewed the Business Office's' need for a new business computer system for billing and payroll, at an estimated cost of $18,000 which in- cludes training; • Approved the payment of December's regular bills of $66,5 ;2.20; • Scheduled the next PSD meeting for Mon., Feb. 9 at the West Main Street meeting room; and • Adjourned the 7 pm meeting at 8:30pro Prior to the adjournment, however, the Board members in a light-hearted way, noted that they had to elect offic- ers for 2009. With that, Sally Mathess moved and Ed Talbott seconded that last year's officers stay in place, thereby re-elect- ing Bill Stalnaker as Chairman; Mr. Talbott, as vice-chairman; and Mrs. Mathess, as a Board member. ........... i!iiiiii! ..... i',JL .... i •',!i•'•••i • `:?i:!~:i:!i:i:i;i:i:i~i:i:i:i::~!:~~?i:ii:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:i:ii:i:i:!: i;!i VINTAGE ONE-ROOM SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPH HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED This picture, wNch shows a one-room school (circa 1900) in Gilmer County, has b~en on display at the State Capitol in Charleston during January.
