Safety and Security Although specific crime statistics were not readily available, discuss- ions with representatives of the City of Hinton had revealed that crime is not a significant problem. The perception of crime, and for that matter, safety and security, is more of a perceived situation than real. The upper floor uses within the city of Hinton are for the most part, apartments. In addition to the close proximity of residential, the un- . ..employment rate within Hinton is extremely high. Thus, there was a significant loitering within down- town specifically stated that one of their major dislikes of downtown Hinton is the " street people". This amount of loitering causes a det- rimental impact upon retailing and the perceptions of safety on the part of residents, tourists, and potential customers of downtown Hinton's retail base. .5. Retail Sales Trends The most current actual retail sales data is found in the Census of Retail Trade published by the United States Department of Comm- erce in 1977 and 1982. Pid ided within these publications ib.4nform- arian detailing the retail trends within Summers County, the City of Hinton, and the balance of the county. Retail ,4[ales, by major retail category, is provided for these two years in Table 4. As shown on the table, the city of Hinton is the largest generator of retail sales within ' Summers County. Overall, in 1977, there were 119 retail establishments i" capturing $127,499,000 in Summers County. Within the city of Hintn, the 90 retail establishments capt- ured $24,799,000. Within the balance of the county, the 29 retail est- ablishments in 1977 captured $2,700, 000. By 1982, the number of re- taft establishements within Summ- ers County declined to 104 estab- lishements. These 104 establish- ments captured $34,610,000 in total retail sales. This represents a five - year increase of 25.8 percent or a constant growth of 5.2 percent over the five-year period. Within the city of Hintn the number of retail establishments declined significant- ly from 90 to 66 establishments. This represents a decrease in the num- ber of establishments by 26.7 per cent. Total retail sales in the city of Hintn, however, increased to 29, 621,000. This represents an increase of a minimal 19.4 percent or a yearly constant increase of 3.9 percent. Total retail sales in the balance of the county increased to a level in 1982 of $4,989,000 while the retail establishments increased from 29 to 38. Based upon the evaluation of the etail trends in Summers County, it can be seen that the food stores captured the majority of the bus- inas. Although information is not provided for Summers County in 1977 and for the city of Hinton in 1962, the incorporation of the data indicates that food stores are the highest producer. In 1977, in the city Hinton, total retail sales within 16 tablishments equaled $8,907,000 In 1982, total food store sales in Summers County equaled $12,638,000 in 14 establishments.

The next largest retail category is automotive dealers. In 1977, there were I0 automotive dealers within Summers County of which all of them were located within the city of Hinton. In 1977, the total retail sales and ,automotive dealers equaled $4,744,000. Although specific sales information was not provided for the 1982 Census of Retail Trade, there was a significant decline in auto- motive dealers from 1977 to 1982. In 1977, there were ten automotive dealers in Summers County which declined to three in 1982. In reviewing the table, it should be noted that there is not one re- tail category which experienced an increase in retail establishments. For example, within Summers Co- unty, gasoline stations declined from 14 in 1977, to eight estab- lishments in 1982. Apparel stores which did not decline significantly, went from eight establishments in 1977 to seven establishments in 1982. Furniture stores declined from eight establishments in 1977 to seven establishments in 1982, Surprisingly, eating and drinking places declined from 19 establishments in Summers County in 1977 to eight establishments in 1982. The only retail category to increase in establishments were drug and proprietary stores. In 1977, there were two establishments in Summers County which increased to three establishments in 1962. All of these drug stores are located with- in the city of Hinton The majority of the retail tr- ends within the individual categor- ies reflected increases in sales while the decline in establishments. Ess- entially, the increases barely kept up with inflation. However, there were a number of retail categor- ies which suffered major declines. These included furniture and home furnishings, eating and drinking places, and miscellaneous retail stores. .Continued next week. e The Ladies Auxiliary to the Vet- erans of World War I Barracks No. 3336 met Thursday May 1st in the Memorial Building.

By Robert M. Baber Extension Agent LAWN MOWER SAFETY - As you take out the lawn mower for another season, take a few minutes to think about safety. Many safety precautions are sim- ply "common - sense" measures to protect yourself and your family from injury. Yet they cannot be taken for granted. Injuries from power mowers sent more than 69,030 Americans to hospital emergency rooms in 1964, according to the National Safety Council. Safety specialists with WVU Ex- tension and Public Service offer these reminders for operators of power lawn mowers: - Make sure all twigs, rocks, toys and debris are cleared from your path before you mow. These items can become lethal weapons when the blades of your mower strike them. - Wear sturdy footwear and close - fitting slacks. Always keep your hands and feet away from the mower's moving parts. - Make sure children and pets are a safe distance away from you mow. NEVER permit a young child to operate a power mower. - Don't use an electric lawn mower if it is raining or if the grass is wet. - Avoid accidental starting Make sure the mower is in neutral be- fore starting, and never leave the starter in a cocked position. - For your own safety and con- venience, keep the blades sharp- ned throughout the mowing season. - If your lawn mower runs our of gas, wait until the engine cools before you refuel. - Before you attempt to clean underneath the mower, turn off the engine and make certain the blades are not moving. Also, disconnect the spark ping wire. MAY 1986 - GRAND JURY BLUESTONE RIVER DISTRICT- Glenda E.Hellems,Hinton: eon Pivont,Jr.,Hinton:'Wilma S.Wygal,Hinton: Dean F.
