I know HIGH ATTENDANCE AT THE STATE FAIR The 2004 State Fair of West Vir- ginia had one of the highest atten- dances in recent years. This year!s attendance was 223,722, up from 211,978 in 2003. State fair of West Virginia manager Ed Rock states, "It was our fifth best dating back to the early 1990's when major entertainers did two shows in the grandstand." Rock reports the car- nival and the food concessionaires had a good year as well. Rock also states, "Most importantly, there were no major incidents or acci- dents." The State Fair of West Virginia attributed several factors to the high attendance. This year was the first time the fair was expanded to ten days, giving fairgoers more opportu- nities to come to the fair. Rock also adds, "We couldn't have asked for better weather. Nine out of the ten days were sunny." In 2005, the State Fair of West ) 'IT DOESN'T JUST HAPPEN'--This saying was the main theme of the September 25 Regional Community & Economic Development Summit which took place at Ritchie County Middle/High School. Approximately 15 citizens from Gitmer County attended this assembly and dinner, because Gilmer County was one of the central and western West Virginia counties included on the program. With many community and economic advancement ideas being thrown out by the speakers that evening, this specific table, composed mainly of Gilmer Countians, was alert to and took to head the new opportunities. From left to right are Jim Bailey, of Cedarville; Don Kelble, of Glenville; Dave Brown of Sand Fork; and Carl Shaw, of neighboring Calhoun County. Dave Brown, who has been among the volunteers reviving interest in the development of the Folk Festival's Country Store Museum as an active tourist attraction, comments about the summit: "This is a good idea. because we're all here to learn." (Staff photos by Dave Corcoran) 1 ANOTHER LOCAL TABLE --At another table at the Summit, Susan and Larry Chapman (seated) enjoyed the company of Joanne and Dr. Louis Manley, among others. Dr. Manley used the Summit to promote his Manley Farm Development Prospectus by handing out explanatory leaflets to the participants from the eig'ht- county region. He stresses that modern housing and a technology park-- proposed for the farm on the other side of the Little Kanawha River at Glenville -- would benefit the whole region by providing more jobs to keep the area's young people at home. before, and those with coverage face that they will fight for West Virginia skyrocketing premiums.
