It regularly performs at state parks and community facilities From page 1 be almost impossible for anyone to correct the mess that exists. Re,- venues have not kept up with expenses. During the past 3 years county revenue from taxes have increased by less than 7 percent. During this same 3 years the ex- penses for operating the assessors office have increased by more than 50 percent. The Assessor suggests that his office have unlimited funding even if it means the elimination of fund- ing for all social services in the county, including health, senior citizens, fire departments, recreat- ion, library and others. We love our Assessor and respect his political hold, because he has kept our taxes low. However, we are reaping the consequences, through our children, of his SEVENTEEN YEAR effort to deny our school system funds to provide advanced science, foreign languages, and other improve- merits. The Assessor prides himself as being a leader to defeat the most recent school levy. This is evident that he is not consistent, when he is constantly asking for more, but for SEVENTEEN YEARS has been unwilling to produce more through his official capacity as assessor. Work hours required by our County Commission? Don't be misled by the Assessor in his statement that only a 6 hour work per day is required by the Co- unty Commisision. Most certainly our Assessor should be acquainted with Court Order Book No. 14, Page 480, dated April 4, 1983, whereby a motion was made by Commissioner, John W. Gilbert, second by Comm- From page 1 Gov. Moore called the black fly a serious health problem when he announced in Beckley on April 10 that he would order the Bti spraying of the Summers County rivers. He said the black fly harm the area's tourist industry and that he would "eradicate" the black fly population by spraying the rivers for up to three years.

The courthouse is made available for any elected official or their em- ployees to work any time they see fit; however, the Assessor is first to point out that he is an elected official and he will maintain full control over his employees. The Assessor would seem to be suggesting longer office hours, this would really be great to work his people behind closed doors for two additional hours per day, as some offices have done, this gives opp- ortuvity to accomplish a lot of work without interruptions. Now the Assessor says his em- ployees are overworked and under- paid !!! Overworked - NO - No person in America today can not be forced into being overworked. Does not the Assessor know that we have Fed- eral and State laws, equal rights laws, womens liberation, and labor unions, all of which protects the rights of individuals. Underpaid - POSSIBLY YES However, we must realize that County Government must operate within the limits of revenues re- ceived. Each county office is bud- geted a specific amount of money for each employee; but the courts have ruled that the elected official of that office may pay each employee whatever they choose, so long as they don't over expend their budget. That could be the justification the Assessor used to pay his daughter at the rate of $6.95 per hour for service performed during the month of April 1986. You will have to be the judge to decide if the Assessor employees are underpaid. I have observed the actions of the Summers County Commission over the past forty years and feel they have used good business judgement in operating the County as eff- eciently as possible with the funds that have been made available to them. Hinton, W.V., April 24,86 - Represen- tatives of the Baha'i Faith today presented Mayor James Leslie and each member of City Council a statement on world peace recently issued by the international govern- ing body of the Baha'is, the Univer- sal House of Justice.

State Treasurer A. James Manch- in today released checks to the City of Hinton and Summers County totaling $5,673.22 as the 2rid quarter- ly distribution of the Coal Severance Tax. The tax is a fee placed on the removal of every ton of coal mined in West Virginia. The funds are then allocated to both coal-producing and non-coal-producing areas. The check for the City of Hinton is for $1,942.90 and the County check came to $4,730.32. According to Payman, local Baha'i spokesporsun, "The Promise of World Peace" defines the root causes of war and disunity and outlines a course of action for their elimination. "We offer it as a source of hope and feel that its message is of special importance to leaders, organizations and individuals at the grassroots level," Payman said. "Their involvement in the peace process is crucial to its eventual SUCCESS." The Baha'i Faith began in Iran in 1844 and has over 4,000,000 followers worldwide; 1,000,000 in the United States. Baha'is believe that certain barriers must be overcome before peace can be achieved.
