They've been telling people the park is a full-service year :around facility. They recently found that it soon will not be. The council maintains that a cut back on services and other new policies by the Department of Natural Resources Parks Division could have a detrimental effect on tourism in this region. Travel council president Joe Lockhart and executive vice president Steve Nicely recently visited the park. They say the cook and front desk attendant served as waitresses in the dining room while still performing their regularly assigned duties. They say there are restrictions on accepting reservations or walk-in guests unless they request at least 15 rooms. Nicely said that in previous years North Bend had one of the best occupancy rates of those parks staying open during the winter. He said that during January and February, 1975, North Bend had the best occupancy rate of the year around facilities. "The closing of North Bend during the winter months would not only be a questionable move, but would elimi- nate the only full-service year around lodging and dining facility between Parkersburg and Clarksburg on U.S. Rt. 50, one of the state's maior highways" said Nicely, Family Album Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Minigh of Jane Low are proud to announce the birth of their first child, a daughter, on Feb, 10 at United Hospital Center in Clarksburg.
