Maryland Washington, D. C. 20018 May 6, 1966 Mr. Lewis Rissler Road Commissioner Jefferson County Charles Town, West Virginia Dear Sir: This is a letter from a former West Virginian who was born and raised in Keyser, W. Va. and later lived for a good many years in Charleston, W. Va. For the past several years I have lived in the State of Maryland, near Washing- ton, D C. and am employed in Washington. Two years ago I pur chased a cottage in the River View Park Development near Shannandale, and have been busy converting it into my retirement if another harvester or tractor will increase your efficiency and reduce labor costs, it's time to talk to Farm Credit. Call today, tong Term lend ~ ton~ Short Tim Fmdudiw Cre4it I~ A Farmer Owned Farmer Dtre,~d ASSOCIATION W. W. HAMMOND ASSISTANT MANAGER Shepherdstown, W. Va. DIAL 876-7441 Or WINCHESTER 662-3479 I will admit there is a tremend- what they operated, so I don't see home for the near future. I have always been proud of my home state with its beautiful scenery and wonderful climate. But I wonder what has happened within the last year and who is responsible for the uncalled for littering of the highways and road parks? ls it because of pros- perity and the easy life led by so marry nowadays that we are losing our sense of responsibility and civic pride? What has happened to the pride we used to have in keeping our State beautiful? I have never seen so much litter on the highways and state rad parks as there has been in the past few months. Take a drive on Route No. 9 from Charles Town over the Shenandoah River Bridge to the intersection of Miss ion Road, turn right, drive two or three miles toward Shannandale. You will find almost everT kind of litter you can name in those two stretches of highway, and this is a very small part of our high- way system. I have been told that there is a clean-up by the high- way crews once a year; certainly it has not been done so far this year. I am at my cottage each week-end and the condition gets ~.~0rse each week. It has reached tile point where I am ashamed to bring my friends along due to the unsightly condition along the roads. Is it possible for a clean-up pro gram to get underway in Jeffer- son County? Why not solicit the help of local civic groups and the Boy Scouts? Can't we do some- thing to remedy this condition and help to make Jefferson Cou- nty a model for the whole state to follow? I still have the pride of a West Virginian and believe that there are thousands of others in this county and elsewhere who would do everything possible to remedy this condition. Sincerely, J, B. Isles cc: Max Brown Editor.Jefferson-Advocate Charles Town. W. Va. Charles Town,W. Va. May 10, 1966 ous amount of litter and debris thrown along our latghways. And in discussing this problem with Mr. Rissler we reached that con- clusion that the increase in high- way traffic, plus the population increase in the county and sect- ion. are the major causes of the litter problem. We must admit there has always been a litter problem in the county, but ap- parently more people are now be- coming conscious of it than ever before. Mr. Rissler has been most cooperative with the county beautification committee in it's efforts to make the county's high- ways more beautiful and clean. lte and his Road Commission crews have on many occasions in the past cleaned the litter from along the county's highways. Last Summer this job was carried out on on eight different occasions. This Spring his men also done quite a bit of clean-up work. I travel State Route 9, daily be- tween Charles Town and Hills- boro, Va., and I know that Mr. Rissler's road crews have done some clean-up work along this route because I have seen them in action. In regards to the specific road to which you refer in your letter, please be advised that it is listed as a "dead end" road and that there are not funds available to the local State Road Commission to keep this road and others like it clear of litter. However, Mr. Rissler has cleaned that road in the past on a number of occas- ions and plans to do the same in the future. I am tremendously interested in this clean-up campaign and all persons contacted have indicated a willingness to help. Would it be possible for you to be a mem- ber of our Clean-up and Fix-up committee, since there are so many opportunities in your lo- cality where you can help us. Won't you please contact me. Sincerely yours, Mrs. O. &Bloom Chairman of Jefferson County Clean-up, Fix-up Committee Charles Town, W. Va. May 11,1966 Mr. Max Brown Editor why it behooves this mayor $o single out the motorcycle riders in particular. Maybe he should clear his eyes of stale pipe smoke and take a long look around him. He might see things more distrub- ing than these few cycle riders. I never pictured this mayor as a man who would gag on a gnat and swallow a camel. I was born and raised adjacent to this small town and the way young folks leave when they grad- uate from high school, it seems as if it needs a bit of life to keep it from turning into another Rip Van Winkle morturary. I know it has it's share of barking dogs, etc., some of which have never had taxes paid on them. and years ago when the main street of this town was the main route through ' it large trucks, and what have you, made more noise than all the motor- cycles could make that could be put into it. It appears, what with more motorcycles on the road today, the man who squawks the loudest is generally the man who wishes he had enough courage to ride one or the courage to let his neighbor see hint on one. These type of people are the ones who will criticize motorcycles and then stand on the street corner and watch their sons ride a bicycle through a stop sign or red light, on the wrong side of the street. To you, Mr. Mayor, 1 suggest you get yourself a small motor bike to ride, quit listening to a few grumblings of people who will grumble at anything that does not benefit or please them or try something more helpful, such as oiling your rocking chair, This is too nice a small com- munity to sleep so long.
