Fourthly, "I was elected to an office -- vice-president -- before I had time to consider the obligations of (it) and whether or not I wished to fulfill (the) same." Finally, she believes, "there is a widespread perception that the action of Apr. 28 described above was in violation of the 'open meetings' law and it would be prudent for us to dispel this perception." She, then, threatened to resign her vice-president's position, if the elec- tive decisions described "continue to stand." In answer, President Ratliff main- tains, "The night that Steve (Dudley) resigned, we needed to act to be able to pay our bills." Later, he commented, "There was no secrecy, and everyone knew we needed to replace Steve." Board member Gina Stalnaker added, "We let Vice-President B utcher take over in the absence of the presi- dent." In the BOE's meeting minutes of May 12, Superintendent Sue Wag- goner fills in some background infor- mation on the problem. "At the end of the Mar. 28 meeting at which Steve Duelley resigned, the Board discussed the need to find his replacement and to reorganize the board. During the discussion, Mr. Butcher informed the group that, in the past, the vice-presi- dent merely became president." Continuing, she adds, "It was agreed that Mr. Butcher would serve as presi- dent.

"We just wanted to help this family that was burnt-out their home recently," states Past Governor DickHarrison. In addition, Mr. Harrison, who is now Governor of the Glenville Lodge, stresses that the local Gilmer County lodge also sponsored a recent fund-raiser to assist the Metz family in getting back on their feet. "This is a typical community service of the Moose Lodge; we're there to help when the community needs it," he says, inviting more local men to join the East Main Street fraternal club. 11th Marsh Poker Run on July 19 From 9:30 a.m. until noon on Sat., July 19, the sign-in for the 1 lth Annual Marsh Memorial Poker Run will take place at the 33 Country Club just east of Glenville.

"I want to do whatever is necessary to get the Farm Development Project movin~ ahead a~ain," he states, arZu- ing, "This centralized 300-acre parcel of land is key to advancing both Gilmer County and Glenville's future. We, my wife and I, are here to help out our area's economic developers and will give you what land is needed to get bridge access over there." In general, Dr Manley, a retired Glenville physician, has envisioned his farm as being a link between the downtown and Hays City, with con- necting commercial and residential subdivisions on the farm. Much of his property is also out of the flood plain and he'd like to donate a portion of the land for either the EDA or Glenville State College's use. Taking about "vision," Mr. Fealy announces that he has received HNTB's final draft of the "Vision Plan" -- a comprehensive proposal to revitalize, beautify, and connect Glenville's commercial districts and to upgrade the Recreation Center.
