2 The Glenvfile Democrat/Pathfinder August 27, tttNI Welcome GSC students Glenville's streets were a little busier this week. Our town seemed to be coming out of its annual summer dormancy as students began to return to the campus of Glenville State College for the beginning of another academic year. Wed like to welcome you students back. You held make Glenville the unique community that it is. It's a place where the old-time rural values blend wi'th the fresh ideas of academia. Your presence is a boon to the local economy. The college is the county's biggest employer and the dollars you spend in the community help sustain local businesses. We would like to see you become more than a source of revenue, however. Make your presence known through the power of the ballot box too. You'll be spending much more of your time in GlenviUe than in your old home town. Things that are done in local government will effect you a generations of college students to come. Insure that the desires of college students are known by registering to vote in Glenville. Guardrails for River St. The accident on River St. last week in which a pickup truck slipped over the bank and into the Little Kanawha River. points up the need for additional guard rails along that section of the street. The street is a county-maintained road and so the responsibility for guardrail placement rests with the county. We hope the county commissioners consider this at their next meeting. Luckily no one was killed in the accident, but as long as there are no guardrails along that section of the street the possibility of a fatal injury remains a likely possibility. Our romantic congressmen To The lklitor There appears to be a lot of harsh criticism of our congressmen. It's true that they dawdle and drag their foot on practically every issue except when they are voting a pay hike for themselves, but let's give credit where credit is due. They are experts on figures, both monetary and feminine. Much of the former is being spent on the latter, of course, the fact that it is the taxpayers' money is only a minor detail. Isn't there any romance in our souls? Ferrell Kennedy Normantown. WV State officer urges vote Dear West Virginal, There are currently over 250,000 eligible citizens of voting age in West Virginia who are not registered to vote. I find this a very distressing situation. I believe it is a sad day for democrac when so many men and women, young and old, cannot vote because they are not registered to vote. Nevertheless. I am optimistic because I believe this situation can be remedied. I am sending as S.O.S. (Serve Our State) appeal to you. I would like to request your help in oranizin a statewide "non-partisan voter registration drive. I am interested in promoting a "SERVE OUR STATE - REGISTER TO VOTE" campaign. This would be an important public service in this Bicentennial year. My goal is to reduce the number of unregistered eligible voters to less than 100,000. After all, voting is not only a privilege, but a responsibility in a democracy. If you are interested in this public service program, please contact me. Thank you for your time and consideration.
