By Fred Long Voting precincts numbers 1, 13, 17 and 19 in Summers County were changed last week by the County Commission in order to comply with recent action by the West Virginia Legislature. By action of the Legislature, Summers County was changed from being part of one delegate district (number 19) into being part of two delegate districts (numbers 21 and 22). Delegate district number 21 is Monroe County and enumer- ation district two of the New River magisterial district and enumeration districts 9, 10, 11 and 12 of the Greenbrier River magisterial district of Sum- mers County. Delegate district number 22 is the other part of Summers County and Raleigh County. The law provides for five delegates to be elected from more than four can be elected from any one county; and one delegate to be elected from district numder 21. Therefore, ' Summers County could elect five residents to the House of Delegates, however, we are guaranteed at least one resid- ent to be elected from Delegate District 22. All of Summers County is still in Senatorial district number ten. By placing the new boundary of the Delegate Districts through the county the voting precincts had to be changed so that no election precinct con- tained territory that was in more than one delegate district rA. James Manchin, Secret- of State, said, "For many sons, which will become increasingly apparent, I re- . peatediy asked the Governor to 'eto this bill, and I ask the district number 22 of which not federal courts to modify the bill Precincts Stay Same For Levy Vote By Fred Loug The school levy election, to be held Monday (April 12), will be voted on using the same pre- cincts and registration records established prior to the change made by the West Virginia Legislature. The County Commission met Monday morning with Jimmy Tassos, Superintendent of Schools, Joe Kessler, Financial Advisor to the Board, Barbara Carr, County Clerk, and Millie Meador, Circuit Clerk, to deter- mine what action should be taken. Billy Joe Edwards, President of the Commission, explained that precinct boundaries had been altered due to a new state lawpassed by the House of Delegates demanding that the change be made by April 1. Mr. Edwards stated that they re- ceived the order Monday (March 29) and made the change Wednesday, however, it would take several days to change the voters registration cards and notify the people as to where they would vote. Mr. Tassos said that the Board of Education had every- thing ready for the election and were going to pick up the registration books Friday. Barbara Cart stated it would be impossible for her office to change the records properly by the end of the week. "If we try to rush through this," she said, "we'll be in a bigger mess than we are now." No one will know where to vote, we'll have to go to everybody's house that's changed and tell them where to vote, she said. Mr. Edwards said that they didn't want to.deprive anyone ,of their righ to vote. Mr.i iGilbert sald the L#.gislature[ iknew what they were doing.' They gave us three days to do {what it tookthem three years Ito do "ImNhdt that it would be impossible to change the records and notify the people before the levy election. It was ordered by the County Commission that the "voters would vote in their previous recognized precincts for the levy election unless notification by the Attorney General's office to the contrary." The Secretary of State's off- ice and Attorney General's off- ice had already been called earlier that morning and they would call back 'after resear- ching the law. When the call came Billy Joe Edwards took the message. He said he spoke with Joseph Prudich, deputy of the Attorney General, who had been discuss- ing the matter with Charles Capet, of the Secretary of State office. Mr. Edwards said that they told him to use the "old records for the school levy." Other action handled by the County Commission was giving permission for the Central Bap- tist Church to use the Court- house park for the Easter Sun- rise Service Sunday morning. James W. Cooper of Sand- stone was given the position of jailer with the stipulation that he appear before the County Commission at the next meet- ing. Mr. Buckland resigned. The County Commission went on record as unanimously en- dorsing the school levy. Billy Joe Edwards said that he had spent one day meeting with Pentree, the engineering firm for the Meadow Creek sewage system. Mr. Edwards said that they had the price down below $500,000 and that the applica- tion for funding had been sub- mitted. Prison Named Landmark By Fred Long The PenceSprings Prison, at one time a famous hotel and a noted resort built in 1918, was named a County Historic Land- mark at the organizational meeting of the Landmarks Commission last week.
