Originally it was proposed as a 495-mobile home park and when the Planning Commission turned that down, the planners, R. M. Singer and Associates of Pikesville, Md., changed their plans and proposed to construct 295 homes on the some 80 acres of land. In ordering the Planning Commission to approve the present plans of Patrick Henry Estates for the sub-division, Judge Sencindiver said the Planning Commission did not have the legal authority to reject the development in-as-much as there is no county-wide zoning and there is nothing in the existing land use regulations of the County's Planning program to prohibit such a development.

One can take just so much of the malfunction of modern day electronics and then either scream or reach for a sledge hammer. It isn't so bad to lose a dime in a pay telephone but to try three 'garage, seven- eleven and restaurant' and not one works forces you to Wonder why. Have you ever wonderec what happens to all of the dimes lost in pay telephones. On my way to Florida I have had some very interesting Outof Orders. First it was the hot air hand dryer in the rest room and of course no paper towels were provided for a back-up. Next came a gasoline stop not really needed but the restroom was urgent. A sign on the door read OUT OF ORDER. In my first motel, a large Holiday Inn, I went to four ice machines before I found one that had ice. At the same place there were four soft drink dispensers three of which had signs "Out of Order" and the one working had nothing but Mountain Dew. Several of the newspaper machines have taken my money when they were empty of papers. True, the front glass is there for you to see if papers are available but when it is still blocked with yesterday's paper, what do you do? You lose 15 cents, that's what! We have all tried stamp machines that did residents of the county. For more information, call Mrs. Lee Small, JCAA Project Director, 725-4044.

After 7 p.m., the local store became a Civic Center to those who braved the elements to take part in conversatim and tales of otheryears. We're glad to relkt that the flu seems to have come tea climax. Mervin Roderick who was stricken with Bell's Palsy along with the flu, is somewhat better but is still under the care of Dr. Cox Baltimore, Md. He is at his home. Mr. Stephen Cloud, St., returned to his home in Rippon, following hospitalization due to slight stroke. He was a patient in the Winchester Memorial Hospital. Mrs. Connie Sue Danner expects to return home this week following surgery in the Jefferson Memorial Hospital. Mrs. Alvin Jenkins submitted to surgery last week in ,the same institution and is convalescing satisfactorily. Local Church School and worship service were cancelled this past Sunday. How many remember when several churches of Jefferson Circuit in the past were closed from Christmas until Easter? This was prior to 1919. Eddie Hough and several members of his family are now able to be out following the flu. Eddie Ware, enroute to his home after a business trip to Roanoke, Va., spent several days at the home of his mother, Mrs. J. E. Ware. Tommy McDonald, of Summit Point, came for his mother, Mrs. Chas McDonald to take her to his home where Mrs. T.

He, of course, expects to keep the extra quarter from two dollar bills. Where I ate breakfast, the music machine 'at each booth' was marked Out of Order, and the man behind me complained about the cigarette machine not working. Is this not symbolic of something important. The strike by coal miners in West Virginia is big news in Naples and newscasters are implying that negotiations may be "Out of Order", that is, negotiations no longer work. Since the nation needs energy more than ever before and since the miners and their families need health and welfare benefits, how soon should the government step in and take over. As consumers, we know that government operation is the most expensive type and instead of reduced utility bills we may he facing much higher costs. Coal is the biggest producer of tax revenue for our state. The loss of this revenue is an ad- ditional burden even to those of us in Jefferson County where there are no mines. Too much is OUT OF ORDER. The consumer has a right to be upset. mversary. This was an en- joyable occasion. Mr. and Mrs. Robert Saylor and family of Adamstown, Md., were Sunday visitors of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Saylor, Avonwood Farm. Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Hill, Andrea and Jennifer, visited his parents, Mr. and Mrs. B. Frank Hill, Shady Acres, on Sunday. Dickie and Sue Ellen Mc- Donald, their children Andy and Teresa, of near Winchester, were Sunday visitors of her father, Mr. Howard O. Bush. Wayne Rouss of Berryville, spent the past week with his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert W. Brooke, St. The little fellow was indisposed with the /lp while here. . We are glad to repor(that Mr. Bernard Knott, who submitted to major surgery recently in the Washington County Hospital in. Hagerstown, is convalescing satisfactorily at his home.

Received $50,423 In Race Track hxes Past Six Months; More Than Expected When the Jefferson County Commission made up its annual budget for the fiscal year July 1, 1977 - June 30,1978, it anticipated it would receive $90,000.00 in tax revenue from the operations of the two Charles Town race tracks. Last Thursday, the Com- mission was told by David Ash, Administrative Assistant for the Commission, that during the period of July I, 1977 through December 31, the county had received a total of $50,432.00 from the betting dollar at the Charles Town Turf Club and Shenandoah Downs tracks. And this is slightly more than had been expected. During the first fiscal year, the county received tax monies from the race track operations, a sum of about $100,000.00 was from a recent breaking and entering at the building at the Jefferson County Fair Grounds, that all items of value would he removed from the building until the time comes when they are to be used again.
