The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder AlzrU 30, 1M715 Bits & Pieces i - by Chuck Cavailo - Main Street driving like an obstacle course Among the many complaints that filter through my office daily, one that filters through more often than not concerns the dangerous and somewhat bothersome parking and driving problems on Main Street in 'Glenville. Being somewhat of a newcomer to this fair city, I am not familiar with the steps {if any) that have been taken in years past to alleviate the problem. More recently, though, city council has moved in the right direction by denoting a whole section of a block as a loading zone. However, out of the kindness of their hearts, they do allow persons to park there for a few minutes. After all what can that hurt? But, the problem still exists. Shoppers and city workers still have to drive an. obstacle course up and down Main Street. And the 'loading zone' might as well be an 'unlimited parking zone.' One might consider several solutions to the problem. First, as a little background, we must remember that the streets were originally built for the horse and buggy. Nobody thought the automobile would make it big! The solution that first comes to mind would simply be to widen the street. This would make everybody happy! The result would he new sidewalks, wider streets and the city wouldn't lose its parking meters. The only catch is the amount of work and money involved. To dig up the street involves tampering with the water and sewage lines that run underneath. No telling what may happen then. Another solution might be to do away with all the parking meters along the street from the red light to College street. The time and work involved here is minimal. But then you have the businesses that line main street complaining that tiffs would take away some of their business. One then might consider buying, leasing or renting a lot 'to be designated a municipal parking area. This way, the city could move its meters there and not loose any money while the businesses would benefit from a centrally located parking area with more space for their we find a lot within I think it is im be done soon if the shoppers for the businesses and business to answered the q answer. It is up to city problem a priority and manner. **** The mayor he has received many garbage pick-up in the the Public Service  understand the rectified itself.

Your friendship and warmth will never be forgotten, and we hope to be remembered in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks for three great years!! May God Bless. Dear ,Sir; ..... ,  The Stricklands Steve, Linda, Beth and Mark An editorial devoted entirely to an envelope of doggy-do will go down in the annals of stupid journalism. Public acknowleement, newspaper coverage, and the mayor's personal returning of the envelope are as childish and disgusting ae the offense. It will not be a bit interesting to see what happens nxt, nor will it be surprising, since you consider it so worthy of public attention, if City Hall Finds itself deluged with various noxious substances. Far more would have been gained by ignoring the incident. Would it have broken any poor cheap hearts, or bankrupted the "city" to have thrown the whale mess away? The local lawmakers had better get their heads together and quickly pass an ordinance. Perhaps, on the other hand, the mayor will emerge with enough experience to obtain a position as driver for a dydee wash service, or as a fertilizer salesman. Mr. Cavallo wouldbetter serve the community by eliminating silly editorials and using the time to correct the glaring grammatical and typographical errors which constantly plague the paper.

Energy scientists, envir- onmental'rots, and legisla- tors in Washington are talking excitedly a b o u t solar satellites -- a poten- flatly new energy source for the 21st century. Imagine, for a moment, larg sail-shaped metallic satellites flying in space 25,000 miles from earth, collecting the rays of the sun and transmitting this energy back to the earth where it would be collected by giant dish-like antennas. From these antenna sta- tions, the energy would be sent to nearby power sta- tions which would convert it into electricity. Although the idea sotds incredible, it has been get- ting a lot of serious atten- tion in Washington and in many research laboratories around the country. One reason scientists are so in- terested is because the solar satellites are an ad- vancement over the earth- based solar heating plants already in operation. The solar satellites could col- lect and transmit the en- ergy from the sun around the clock and would not be limited to the daytime or clear weather--the prime drawback with the exist- ing solar plants. Scientists working on the solar satellite idea say that by the year 2025, I00 State osteopathic doctors to meet and treatment of human illness, disease and injury," Dr. Hahn explained.

The swarming season for termites usually occurs after the first few warm days of Spring. If termites are spotted, do not panic. Damage usually develops slowly, so there is time to carefully select a reliable pest control company to determine the extent of the infestation and measures that are needed to prevent further damage. Termite control should be considered as another repair needed to maintain your house. Make sure that you select a reliable, licensed pest control contractor. Douglas stated that a new W. Va. Law requires all owners or managers of pest control companies to be examined and licensed by the West Virginia Department of Agricul- 'ture {WVDA}. Any firm not licensed is operating illegally and should be reported to the West Virginia Department of Agriculture. Charles- ton. WV 25:05.
