]Page ?,-A Gleaville DemocraU Pathfinder October 21, 1076 They deserve it The bond issue proposal which will be made Nov. 2 by the Gflmer County Board of Education is being proposed in order to complete Phase II of their Comprehensive Building Plan. Among the projects completed under Phase I was the construction of Glenville's elementary school. You've no doubt heard the rave reviews that hapdsome facility has received. If the bond issue is passed every student in e county could enjoy a similarly pleasing educational environment, Our students deserve it. Every other school system in the state, but two, is under some kind of indebtedness for their schools. Our students deserve the same opportunities as others in the State. Language arts teachers at Glenville Elementary recently asked their students to write their opinions of the new school. The following excerpts from those papers could be heard at every school in the county if the bond issue is passed. "...When I get up in the mornings I look forward to a new day of school." The people that helped make it did a very good job of helping and I thank the people who helped us." I really don't like school but I like this school. It goes fast." "When I came in "to the school I was scared, but I saw my old friends...It smelled like paint but I did not care it was pretty... I went to my new room and saw my new teacher and she was pretty nice." "I'he carpet makes it nice to sit on the floor." "I think that they built the school good." "It has nice things like carpet and good chalkboards." "I feel safe because there's a fire door in each room." "I feel sorry for all the kids who don't have a school like ours." A CHALLENGE REWARDED--West Virginia Secretary of State James McCartney appeared at Glimer County High School last Monday, Oct. 11 to present a certificate to Student Council President Kathy McCartney. McCartney recently challenged high schools throughout the state to register as many eligible voters in their high school as was possible. Almost every eligible student at GCHS registered.

' '.!!,, ! t a chance, Stop wildernessdestruction Te fJ Edi Powelltou CoalCompany of Logan has filed public notice of their intent to open two deep mines on the Williams River, one of which is intended to fall within the Cranberry Beckcountry Wilderness Area. This is one of the most beautiful of the states truly virgin wfldernass areas. This attempt must be halted before it is begu Our state and national parks and wildlife areas must be protected from mining, lumbering, and industrial exploitatico. The lands and waterways immediately surrounding these anms must also be protected. This is a matter of great concern, not only for naturalists and sportsmen, but for all West Virginians. Our mountain wilderness areas are more than a refuge for many and wildlife. They are the source of many of our rivers which are necessary to the survival of many people living in lower lying areas, and to ths farmers whose fields need the nouriehment of pure water and the minerals and other deposits that the rivers bring to feed his soft. Without pure water, good lamt. clean air, andthe food that these produce our children and grendchfldren will suffer the results of our actions. This letter is to m3e all concerned West Virginians to write letters of protest to our state government officials asking for their cooperation in halting attempts of this nature. Please do not allow a situation like "Buffalo Creek" to develop in the Cranberry Wilderness. Area.
