I've been very busy as I graduated from GSC, started working for Dr. Husari Corp and I am now Mrs. April Fridley.

THE ELLYSONS: This red clay ceramic replica of a photograph was created by Mrs. Pam Rippe of Virginia and presented to Gene and Edith Ellyson of Cox's Mills. The subjects of the figurines were the Ellysons, who merely mow a campsite for Mr. and Mrs. John Rippe's visits with their camper. John's father, Pete Rippe of Oak Hill, is a former GSC Pioneer. In recent years, the Ellysons have received a plaque of the Lord's Prayer with flowers entwined and other artistic creations of Pare's, but this realistic creation is complete, "down to the belt loops," remarks Gene.

"Fledgling R&D companies are sometimes working with innovative and therefore new technology," Slater said. "At this point in their develop- ment, they may not be generating as much profit-or tax liability- as they will down the mad. This feature al- lows them to use West Virginia's ex- cellent R&D credit at the appropriate time." West Virginia supports the growth of knowledge--based companies to add more diversity to the state's economic. mix, Slater said. "The state must encourage compa- nies that can make the best use or West Virginia's research capabilities and unequalled work force," he said. "We salute all of the representatives from legislative, from legislative lead- ership, from labor and from the state tax department that worked together to improve an already ground break- ing credit that encourages investment ! s Aggressive it Enhanced while being mindful of the state's re- sources. Our Vision Shared commit- tees and volunteer base of Over 500 West Virginians were instrumental in the passage of this tax legislation."
