SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE | THURSDAY, MARCH 30,1978 Winter Colder, Than in 1976.; 7 ', LLOYD, SR. sometimes we say this been so much winter so much never had so years. Only the tells the P story can be told the winter just in some colder than )itation was 1976-77, the form of of snow 16 inches in the snowfall of any winter terms of water to almost against 1977. A favorable to tables. and also the temperature colder than aals, and 6.5 of 1976-77. In 1976-77, there were days on which colder readings were recorded than during the season just ended, but last February rose to seasonal normals, thus making it consistently cold only during the month of January. It was another story this winter when it was consistently colder from January 1st through March 12, and was therefore colder on a greater number of single days. The long range forecast section of the National Weather Service had projected a second winter of colder and wetter characteristics and statistics bear out the correctness of the forecast. The greater number of cold days has resulted in more degree days, and hence heavier heating costs this winter than last. There was snow on the ground in some amount for 66 con- secutive days this winter. Snowfall records for Charles Town are only available for the past 42 years, and it is generally believed that the 66 day period represents the longest period in 60 years. ;irl m ground- the new Center The built on two acres between and Shenandoah ; turned by i insburg realtor and Mrs. id, "nothin Rather, : plans, ideas and dreams evolve over periods of time and we are fortunate to be able to see the fruits of these efforts today".

WVU Graduate Centv IShepherd Attracting [Panhandle Students Though most teachers in the Eastern Panhandle are aware of the WVU Graduate Center at Shepherd College, many in- dividuals who are residents of the area and not in the teaching profession may not know of this new development. In 1974-75, West Virginia University, in conjunction with Shepherd College, began of- fering ten complete off-campm master's degrees. The classes are held at Shepherd College, though a majority, 80 percent of the professors are regular faculty members of West Virginia University who drive l I I down from Morgantown weekly to teach evening classes. The use of WVU faculty, necessary to satisfy regional accreditation agencies, and the use of the Shepherd College classrooms, educational materials, and library resources has created a unique cooperative education experience. The 1977-78 year will see about 1,500 Eastern Panhandle students taking course work towards master's degrees, teacher certification renewal, and social-cultural enrichment. Most will take these evening classes at the Shepherd Center. Presently a majority of the graduate courses are related to education and teaching. In the future, the University hopes to enlarge its offering with ad- ditional master's degrees in the arts and sciences and a wider array of courses outside the area of education. The WVU Graduate Center office is located on the Shepherd College campus in Miller Hall and is open Monday-Friday from 9-5. Individuals interested in graduate work from WVU in Shepherdstown are 'bncouraged to seek advisement on admission Illl I I I MUNICIPALITY Of SHEPHERDSTOWN STATE OF wEsT VIRGINIA COUNTY OF JEFFERSON, MUNICIPALITY OF SHEPHERDSTOWN, To-Wit: At a special session of the council of the municipality of Shepherdstown, held in the council chambers thereof, in the Town Hall building on the 21st day of March, 1978, there were present Charles Bosley, Mayor; Margaret Woods Didden, Recording Of-' fleer, and Charles Branson, Georgia McElhaney, Paul Miller, Ill, E.
