11.,,. SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, JANUARY 19,1978 Breathing Room I That threatened confrontation between the upper Shenandoah Valley and northern Virginia over water from the Shenandoah River has been deferred, but not resolved permanently. It may resurface in the next decade or so, and localities here which were unanimous in opposing the Shenandoah River pumpover project should keep a watchful eye on the matter.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has approved a pumping station on the Potomac River that will ease the situation in Fairfax County and other localities in that area -- but only until 1993 or so. At that point, the Corps of Engineers explains, northern Virginia will again have to look for additional water resources. It's understandable that the Shenandoah River pumpover is so attractive a proposal, con- sidering the alternatives. It is the only immediate source of water that lies totally within one jurisdiction -- the Com- monwealth of Virginia, so the red tape and negotiations over water rights are minimal compared with further drawdowns of the Pdtomac or the Chesapeake Bay. There wouldn't be that much con- struction involved in the pum- pover -- a pipeline running from the Riverton pumping station along Interstate 66 to Manassas Gap -- compared with the PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION OF WEST VIRGINIA CHARLESTON Entered by the PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION OF WEST VIRGINIA at the Capitol in the City of Charleston on the 10th day of January, 1978.

Should water shortages threaten northern Virginia in the early 1990's, we can see no reason why these arguments will not still apply. The proposed interbasin transfer of Shenandoah River water brought a concerted, united position from upper Valley localities, who seemed to be the only ones concerned about the impact of the pumpover project on this area. We were heartened by the swift response that the various boards of supervisors and city councils brought to bear as the pumpover project materialized last fall. But there's an underlying issue here that goes beyond the single instance of this proposed pipeline. Water resource shortages in northern Virginia can be seen as just one result of SHEPHERDSTOWN Mrs. Janet Hansen Rev. and Mrs. Randy Tremba are the parents of a 9 lb. son, Jonah, born January 12 at the Jefferson Memorial Hospital.

In that analysis, what we have seen in the Shenandoah pumpover project is just one example of what happens when a region sustains heavy economic growth and is forced to look beyond its borders for those resources or services which it needs but does not have. The awareness of our local governing bodies towards this region's own resources requirements -- now and in the future -- has been heightened by the Shenandoah River pumpover case. But it certainly won't be the last time that northern Virginia's growth will touch this region. There cannot be too much emphasis on that point: northern Virginia's problems can quickly become our problems, whether by projects such as the Shenandoah pum- pover, or by the spread of un- controlled urbanization from the metropolitan Washington area into the Shenandoah Valley. We should intensify our own plan- ning and preparedness for that probability. (Winchester Star) last year, is at present on the faculty of Ohio State University.

I IIII II I MAKE YOUR HOME ONE-IN-A- BILLION There's nobody else in the world +exactly like you -- and, therefore, no other home should be like yours. RAMEY Although there's often not much that's practical to do to the outside of a home if it looks the same as a lot of other homes -- you certainly can decorate the interior in- dividually and distinc- tively, and thereby have the inside of your home different from everybody else's. Now, no one should decorate "differently" just" to be different. But you should express your in- dividuality -- and decorate for the needs and the desires of you and your family. If you do that, you'll have a "one-in-a-billion home", and one that genuinely speaks for you,.and serves you. Today, it's easier that ever to assemble the furniture you want and like. There's now more freedom of choice than ever before, and mixtures of furnishings are not only acceptable but desirable, so you can add just the things you like. With that in mind, we're here to help you by offering you a varied selection, different ideas, and the encouragement to furnish your home the way you want it, and the way your family wants it. We're here to help you achieve that g0al. Stop in. RAMEY'S FURNITURE &APPLIANCES CharlesTown, W.Va.
