Before the hard driving beat of blue grass music, mountain people danced to a lilting rhythm more befitting the pace of their lives. Coming to Charles Town from the hills of Rcane County, West Virginia, is the group of five musicians with the love for 'old time music who call them- selves Booger Hole Revival. The name may require a small explanation. A "Benger" to an old-timer is the ghost or spirit of Revival. Patrons for the Booger Hole Revival will hear tunes like Hawks and Eagles, where the fiddle swoops and dives in imitation of the grace of the great birds, and Rocky Moun- tain Goat, a tune they learned from an old-timer Mose Coffman of Pocahontas County, where the mandolin and fiddle jump and leap together so it takes little effort to imagine two wild goats matching stride on rocky terrain. Tickets for Booger Hole Revival are now on sale at the Old Opera HoUSe are urged to reserved seats out is limited to 294. House is open for purchase COULT AT I Kevin Coult, Kathry been accepted W.

IT Pol, Ad by Candidate AN OPEN LETTER TO JEFFERSON COUNTY VOTERS: On September 1, 1977, I was appointed as Magistrate for Jefferson County with an order signed by both Circuit Court Judges, Pierre Dostert and Vance Sencindiver. I have endeavored from that day to perform my judtcial function to the best of my capabilities. Iam presently seeking election to the office I now hold. The experience has been educational, and one which has allowed me the opportunity to serve the citizens of our county. Although constant study of an ever-changing legal climate has required diligent work, [ have tried, with over 1,000 cases of experience, to uphold the laws and constitution of this State and the United States. The judicial system is not new to me as I have previously spent many hours in court in the Eastern Panhandle. My former employment has been as a State Probation and Parole Officer for the State Department of Corrections, and as a Probation Supervisor working for the Administrative Office of the State Supreme Court of Appeals. After receiving a Bachelor's Degree from Davis and Elkins College, I moved to the Eastern Panhandle. Since that time I have continued my educa- tion by taking Graduate Classes at Hood College in Frederick, Md., and at Shepherd College in Shepherdstown, WV through West Virginia University. My wife, Sandy, who teaches English at Jefferson High School, and I re- side in Tuscawilla Hills, outside of Charles Town. The lower court of Jefferson County is growing at a very quick pace; therefore, I will not be able to campaign as much as I would llke. I do request and appreciate any support you may be able to give me during the upcoming election. Sincerely, Peter H. Dougherty The latter is also constructing a large machine shop with modern equipment.
