Va., and Minnie Green, a sister, of Harpers Ferry, was signally honored February 19, 1978, on his 100th birthday. Among the special visitors who came to Mr. Green's home to pay him a special tribute on having reached a Century of livlihood, were Jim Hellman, Mayor of Ingram, and Coun- cilmen Gerry Croushore, John Gill, Den McVay and former Councilman Robert Hanna. Mr. Green is one of two per- sons residing in Ingram who celebrated their 100th birthday on February 19, the other being Mrs. Mary Anderson, who was also paid a special visit by the Ingram city officials and many other well-wishers. Mr. Green has been a resident of Ingram since 1901, while Mrs. Anderson has resided there since the early 1920's. When the Ingram City officials visited the town's two most i distinguished citizens they :brought with them a monetary gift and a basket of fruit, con- tributions from the City officials and friends in the community. Congratulary letters were sent to each of the residents by President Jimmy Carter. Mr. Green was a son of the late William and Millie Green, residents of the Myerstown section of Jefferson County. OP Shop Seeking Donations, Help The Op Shop, located at 112 W. Liberty St., operated for the benefit of the Old Opera House by volunteers of the Theater Guild, is now open on Tuesdays and Thursdyas from I0 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The later closing time will allow shoppers to come after their regular working hours. The Op Shop is abundantly stocked with good used and some new clothing for every member of the family, as well as useful household articles. / Most items are donated and as present consignments are sold, only donations will be accepted. Lack of storage space and other facilities make it impossible to accept consignments. Book work is also a great consumer of time. More flexibility in shop operation is possible with only donations being accepted. It is hoped that the shop can continue operation on such donations. They help in the Old Opera House Restoration project and future operation of the Opera House. Volunteers are needed for all phases of the shop operation -- cashiers, sales and pricing clerks, ticketing of merchandise to be sold. Call 7254398 or 725-4420 if you wish additional information. This is a very worthwhile project and a fine place to work. LIVESTOCK SALES I I The quotations of the Blue Ridge Livestock Sales, at Charles Town, W. Va., Monday, April 24, 1978.

SNARED FIRST FISH OF SEASON AT DEVIL'S BACKBONE PARK LAKE i ' Shown above are a group from the Baker V.A. Center near Martinsburg, which went to Devil's Backbone Park Lake in Washington County, Md., for a special recreational fishing trip on April 18, to make National Hospital Week, and one of the group -- Clyde Lafollette, snared the first fish of the season from the lake. Shown in the picture are, left to right -- Mat Brown, Mrs. Naomi Barrow, who represented the Volunteers at the V. A. Center; Clyde LaFollette, Henry Shaster and Ray Bishop. (Photo by Bill Donaldson, recreation specialist for the fishing trip. ) Fired Deputy Alleges Improper Dismissal Sheriff's Deputy Robert Carr lost more than a prisoner Friday afternoon. He also lost his job. Cart was accompanying Clarence E. Boyd from a hearing at the courthouse hack to the jail -- a distance of about 60 yards -- when Boyd ran from the deputy. Although Boyd was apprehended the following day, Sheriff Howard Wilt dismissed Carr Friday evening. Wilt stated that Cart "had repeatedly shown aversion to handcuffing prisoners and often argued the point with me." Although Wilt said that he requires prisoners to be hand- cuffed when taken from the jail, he said of Carr: "I don't know why he doesn't use them but he won't do it unless I insist. When he lost a prisoner, I didn't feel that I could condone it. It is a serious breach of vrocedure." The dismissal followed Wilt's initial decision in the matter, to suspend Carr. But when the deputy argued the point, Wilt fired him. But Carr isn't giving up without a fight. In a telephone interview Tuesday morning he said that he had received advice from a member of the Police Commission that the dismissal was,strictly illegal." Carr acknowledged the sheriff's authority to suspend him but stated that "nothing disrespectful" was said during the argument. "I was only defending myself and my right to free speech," Carr said. Noting his protection from being fired without a hearing Carr commented, "I am still a deputy sheriff. If he wants to get rid of me he'll have to go to the Civil Service Commission. ON A CLEAR DAY he can see forever. But the view from atop the 40-foot County Courthouse flagpole is a familiar sight for John Kitridge, of El Paso, Tex., steeple jack with 35 years of ex- perience. But Kitridge may have "looked down" at his job for the County Commission, because he claims to have climbed smoke stacks and steeples more than three times as high. Legion Post Will Meet May 4; Will Nominate Officers Jackson-Perks Post 71, the American Legion, will hold its regular monthly meeting on May 4th, 1978, at its Post Home on W.

WEST VIRGINIA 25438 COMPANY 304--725-7014 County Hears Complaints About, From Deputies The "System" was taken to task before County Commissioh at its regular weekly meeting in the County Courthouse, April 20. Merle Johnson, planning commission permit officer, complained to commission of difficulty in enforcing removal of a house trailer from a residential property on Rt. 9. Johnson said the property owner was notified in writing of the violation in subdivision and sewage regulations, but failed to appear at a court hearing and ignored a contempt citation. Johnson charged, "No honest attempt was made by the Sheriff's office to deliver a court order," and that "the whole system is at the heart of the problem." Commissioners suggested that Johnson ask Prosecuting Attorney Bob Skinner to issue another citation. Kathryn Trussell, assessor, was called before Commission in response to complaints about the lack of dog tag receipts. When Trussell said she issues no receipts between December 31, when audits are made, and July 1, Commission President Tom Mentzer commented, "I can't understand a system that requires people to buy tags but doesn't provide receipts." Commission decided to take the matter under consideration. A letter signed by a captain, sergeant and two deputies of the sheriff's department asked that Commission relieve three members of the County Civil Service Commission of their' positions. The letter cited three violations of the West Virginia code and noted that CSC members have retained their positions beyond limits of thai: appointments. The letter referred to Skinner. Commission Administratiw Assistant David Ash demon- strated a voting machine in which candidate selections are punched on a computer card, which is processed by a counter than can tabulate 45 ballots a minute. Commission estimated that the county would have saved more than $I0,000 had the machines been installed for the May 2 primaries. Ash said that the card-punch system is easy to program and to understand and would be beneficial to older persons and individuals who cannot read -- the latter because a number identifying each candidate would be assigned in advance of elections. A recent estimate for four counters and about 110 voting machines was $38,000, Ash said. i RON RISSLER For Commissioner Kabletown District APRIL 27--2T Pol.
