I ~ : P ' Ot *:- Dear Fred; Editor Hinton News- paper, On Mar. 12, 1989, I was raided by the city and state police for having my private club open after hours. On this same date, I waived probable cause on the citation and was ar- raigned before Magistrate Jefferies upon this single charge. The next day, I was assigned a Mr. E. Skaggs as court appointed counsel, but when I contacted him, he stated that he could not see me until the date of the trial. I fired Mr. Skaggs. On Mar. 31, 1989, Magistrate Jeff ries called Trooper Miller into his office to have him file a new complaint, upon which Jeffefies is- sued, but did not execute, a warrant , with twoadditilmal violations of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commissioner's =Operations Regu- lations. However, someone also annotated on a case document that I came in and stated that I would represent myself. On Apr. 12, 1989, at a pre-trial hearing, now before Magistrate Beasley, during which a defense coun sel did not show, I filed a motion to dismiss the charges because the warrant did not state the "intent~ element required by the code. On May 11, 1989, at an additional pre-triat hearing, now before a Greenbrier County magistrate, dur- ing which a defensecounsel did not show, I filed a motion to dismiss because the warrant did not state the "i ntent" elem ent required by the Code. On June 22, 1989, Judge Lobban dismissed the warrant because, he stated, "the charges should be three separate and distinct charges, and on June 29, 1989, Judge Jotliffe, the "chief judge", Ordered the case back befbre the same Greenbrier County magistrate tbr reissuance of three warrants. On July 20, 1989 was the date that Prosecutor Aucremanne sched- uled the trial before the Greenbrier County magistrate, However, there was no trial,in fact when I arrived at the court room, I found no one around or even the magistrates offices. On July 21, 1989, I received an eviction notice evicting me from the club for criminal misconduct and for failing to "acquire liability insur- ance that no one in town would provide. During the month of Oct. of 1989, the oldest charter for the American Legion in the State was taken away from Post 51' named after the Pack/ Parker family (Crawfords). Almost immediately, the VFW announced a revival. On Jan. 9, 1990, without notice or opportunity to challenge the array of the grand jury members, as re- quired by law, I was indicted for the same "three separate and distinct= violations against my ABCCLicense Privileges', before a grand jury with six to ten members who are directly or indirectly associated with the First National Bank of Hinton, which bank I do business associated with my closed licensed business" and my '~home~. From the beginning, my business was doomed, for there was just too much potential to make money. Legal tipboards, poker machines, being affiliated with the American Legion, being black, being a Crawford all at the same time must be too much for the estab}ishment, for all of them conspired to t ke private property without paying compensation.

When the railroad first opened for business, there were sta- tions such as Cannelton instead of Montgomery, Crescent instead of Eagle, Frederick instead of Mr. Carbon and Loup Creek instead of Deepwater. Shortly after the turn of the century, coal mines opened in great number in this area. There were nine mines within the six miles between Montgomery and Deepwa- ter, namely: Coal Valley Mining Co.; W. R.

It seems as though you can never get rid of them without being rude and hanging up on them. I as well as most folks find it easier to tell a little white lie than to be rude, kindly tell the caller that you are the maid or butler and that you do not have the authority to honor their request. Since I am the mechanic, butler, painter, as well as a lot of other rifles real or imagined, it would not really be a lie at all. The little white lie should not hurt anyone, it will get you off the hook without rudeness, and it makes Summer= County look very affluent having all these hired servants.
