Greyhound wants to eliminate the bus route which leaves Charleston at 5:30 p.m., stops in Glenville at 8:30 p.m. and arrives in Clarksburg at 10:15 p.m. and the route which leaves Clarksburg at 8:50 a.m. stops in Glenville at 10:30 a.m. and arrives in Charleston at 1:35 p.m. This bus also goes through Grantsville. Although there is currently no bus stop in Grantsville, this is the ony bus which goes through the town. Greyhound has already eliminated mention of this route on their most recently published schedules. Two Glenville bus stops would remain on the schedule if Greyhound has their way. Those stops are included in the route which leaves Charleston at 7:15 a.m., stops in Glenville at 9:55 a.m. and arrives in Clarksburg at 11:35 a.m. This bus then turns around in Clarksburg, leaving at noon, and stops in Glenville at 1:50 p.m. and arrives in Charleston at 7:35 p.m. The elimination of the two trips would mean that it would be impossible to take a round trip to Charleston in one day by bus. The first hearing before the Public Service Commission is scheduled for Jan. 5, at 1:30 p.m., while a second hearing is scheduled Jan. 12 in Clarksburg at 9:30 a.m. in the city building. Jack and Peggy Bolen, owners of the Gilmer Shoe Shop, serve as Greyhound agents in Glenvtlle. According to Mrs. Bolen 105 bus tickets were sold In November and 108 were sold in October. DoI. Billy B. Burke has said that he would appear before the PSC at the Jan 5 hearing and Dr. Allen Btllips, dean of student affairs at Glenville State College has indicated that he will try to attend the hearing in Clarksburg on Jan. 12. Any other interested parties can appear before the PSC.

See page two for pictures of the performance [Democrat photo] City gets Hud approval to ' spend excess money for water line projects Three water line construction projects for Glenville were approved last week by a representative from the federal Housing and Urban Develop- ment office. The city had $54,000 left over from a HUD grant for the construction of a new water tank. HUD had informed the city. that they could use the surplus money for water-related projects. HUD official John Laswick was in Glenville on Friday, Dec. 17 to make a Final inspection of the new water tank and at the time he also gave approval for the water line projects and a project to rehabilitate the city's old 150,000 gallon water tank. Laswick checked the city's financial records and the environ- mental impact statement to see if HUD regulations had been adhered to. The new tank will be put in operation as soon as Welding Inc. of Charleston can return to the site to install an electrical hookup and chlorinate the tank. The water line projects include a new line from the vicinity of Dave's Drive-In along Rt. 5 to an area just beyond the old fairgrounds, the t upgrading of a -inch line along Rver St. to a two-inch llne and the upgrading of another A-inch line to a two-inch line which runs from the intersection of Beverly Drive and Rt. 33/119 toward the 4-D Manufacturing plant. HUD has given the city permission to use city crews to lay the water lines. Mayor Delbert Davidson estimated that for this reason the city would be able to lay from two to three times more pipe than would be possible if a private contractor were hired. The old water tank will be used as a reserve for the new 300,000 gallon tank Davidson said the old tank has been patched twice in the last two weeks. Those people who live where the new water line wiE must pay the city a $100 hookup fee to hook onto the new line. -::i:i Davidson said that if there was any of the $45,000 left after the four proiects are completed, the city council would determine other water-related projects which could be funded. The water line construction projects will not begin until Spring. when the bad weather breaks, Bond proposal fails again An attempt to renovate the anitiquated school buildings of Gilmer County was again thwarted when only 51 per cent of the voters voted in favor of a school bond proposal Friday, Dec. 17.
