PUBLIC EAGER FOR THE LITTLE KANAWHA RIVER PARKWAY-- By way of background, the LKRPC project originated in 1985, when several visionary individuals seeking to promote Calhoun, Wirt, Wood, and Gilmer Counties recognized the vast economic growth and future development inherent in "opening up" the Little Kanawha River area, thereby linking 1-77 with 1-79 in its entirety. Some of those attending the Business After 5 Social Hour to learn more about the LKRPC were from left to right: Jim Brandenburg (this paper's Advertising Manager) (first table) and Jay Releford; Gilmer County Commission President Larry Chapman (second table), Jeff Campbell, and Bob Bonar (LKRPC member from Calhoun County); Mrs. Betsy Barr (third line of tables), Ms. Dot Underwood (Governor Joe Manchin's area representative), Jim Bailey, Frances Myers Schmetzer, Jack Conrad, David Millard, and Lisa Belknap (News Editor for this newspaper).

When mine came in the 1840s and '50s, they spoke only German and Gaelic. It took a while for them to assimilate, but they did. As a result, here I am, here you are, so here we all are together ... in the USA, and proud to be Ameri- cans.
