Main St. Deputy Phil Program that I brought to the county El- ementary Schools back in 2005 and ran for 8 straight years. This program is funded fully by local busi- nesses that buy ads to be put about a full occupancy ira its campgrounds here ira Gihner County.) Now,if this senior editor hasn't convinced you to "Come Home" to West Vir- ginia, check out what else the state advocates have to say at ... Indeed, here you can buy two or three times the home in a beautiful and safe neighborhood, as well as in the workbooks of the chil- dren. This money is paid di- rectly to the Deputy Phil Pro- gram, not the Sheriff's of- rice. We did not have to do anything until the day of the program. When our current Sheriff took office, he dropped the program and would like for you to believe that he "had" to drop it. I would like to see any order ever given to him by the state or any other agency that ordered him to suspend this program. 1 am sure you would also. I am very happy that this program will start back up, after 3 years. Con- 304.462.5631 The Glenville Democrat - Thursday, December 31, 2015 - Page 5 llllllllllllllllllll YESTERDAY, TODAY AND OREVER!
