 The Gb envflle Dmocrat/Pathflnder October 7. 1976 7 o. Praise for planners Meetings by the Gilmer County Planning Commission have b come few and far between. In light of the laudable decisions they r nade at their most recent meeting on Sept. 29, we'd like to see them meeting more often. The commission had no other alternative than the action they took regarding Harry Boggs application for a two million dollar plus FHA loan {see stern on page 1) which would in part pay for the construction of a coal preparation plant near Stouts Mill. The commission had valid concerns about the preparation plant which they have a right to express. Their letter to the Division of Water Resources was the most expedient way to resolve these concerns. In discussing possible projects which local governments could apply to HUD for, the commission made another encouraging move. They discussed the possibility of applying for funds which could be used to purchase landfill sites around the county. This is an extremely serious problem which other levels of local government have somehow avoided. All the members of the planning commission seemed to be genuinely concerned about the future of Gilmer County. We'd like to see them express this concern by meeting more often and dealing as judiciuosly with other planning problems in the county as they did at their last meeting. ,4 Randy Kirehherg, an employee of Glenville Superette presented a lamp to Jim Gum, who accepted the Festival of Values prize for his brother, Bill Gum.

The Grill's obituary To The Editor THE GRILL born March 10,1928, died September 18,1976, age 48, Located at 110 East Main St. Physically, The Grill did not amount to much, often referred to as a hole in the wall. However, while it lived, it was a place to PAUSE and REFRESH, for many people, U.S. Senators, Congressmen, Governors, Ex-Governors, College Presidents, wives of College Presidents, college teachers, coaches, smdents and residents of Glenville, and several well knw athletes, some of whcn went on to become successful coach.. Many romances were born in The Grill. The most interesting customers were those aged from six to ten, who came in with a niclde clenched in a small fist, climbed onto a stool and ordered an ice cream cone or a coke. Most likely, their Morn and Pop had their first date in the popular booth in the rear of the room. Few days passed without at least one argument, usually about sports. When the tack stopped, we would turn to The World Almanac for the answer. THE GRILL was an oasis for college students. Many times I "" ..have seen a Freshman come in with his girl friend and order a coke , ,u two:sts ey usually t 10ng after l'd ,coke was " forgotten. ,. ..... ...... j  With the demise of THE GRILL, places called the Soda i Fountain and Ice Cream Parlor, will not be found anywhere. Every college town had at least one or more. And with their going will be one of the most vovular and refreshing drinks: the chocolate ice cream soda and--the five cent coke.  • Thei wtshCeit weren'tt° "PAUSEso. and REFRESH," will be a memory. Wib Beall, senior soda jerk Glenville  To the Edit I live at the end of Mineral Road in the Sun Valley Addition. Just now new water lines are being extended out this way. I would  like to urge th extension of the sewer line from the end of the ' college athletic field and probably down Sycamore. At present :" there is more than 25 homes out this way that must primarily o: depend on their own septic tanks. It would seem to me that the {/future expansion for New Homes will be out this way and down  Sycamore. I have adequate water and no problem with my sewer system, but it is next to impossible for new homes to be built and find room  for a sewer system, even if they get the water. Now, while the Government is pushing such projects would seem to be a good time :i to act. I am aware we are not all in the Glenville corporation linitr. I hay%written the mayor and some members of the co unc a personal letter. In my physical condition, perhaps I should not :. concern myself, but I am interested in Glenville and our school  system's expansion for the betterment of all Gilmer County.
