New Laws Auto Operators Into IEffect In W. Va. Out-of-state residents ap- plying for a driver's license in West Virginia will now be required to take vision and written tests before such a license is issued. This new law, passed by the Legislature earlier this year, became effective July 1. Prior to that date, an out-of-state resident needed only to surrender his out-of-state license to secure a valid West Virginia operator's card. Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Virginia Roberts said that in instances where it is determined that the driver does not hold a valid out-of-state license, a driving test will also be required. Mrs. Roberts said these requirements are aimed at assuring that all new drivers moving to West Virginia learn the rules of the road; and will assure DMV and law en- forcement personnel that each driver has only one valid operator's license. The new law also permits a new resident to retain an out-of- state chauffeur's license with a West Virginia driver's license if the chauffeur's license is required for operation of a commercial vehicle in the state where the individual is em- ployed. It is also noted that the new legislation does not affect students from out of state. Pantran Use Shows Sharp Jump June Pantran, assured of another year of operation by the ap- propriation of West Virginia funds for the TRIP Rural Transportation Program, is hoping that a recent increase in usage in the Eastern Panhandle will mean continuation of the service for years to come. Pantran, on shaky ground financially, was assured of another twelve months of operation when it was an- nounced in Charleston that $659,535 from counter-cyclical funds and $500,000 from the 1978 session of the Legislature had been committed to the TRIP program. Vaughan Whiskers, who directs Pantran's operations in Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan counties, was pleased with the Charleston announcement. But he's also elated with the upswing m usage of Pantran by Eastern Panhandle residents. According to Whiskers, June was the best month for ridership in the history of the operation. Seventy-six hundred persons utilized the mini-bus service, 700 more than in the best previous month, March, when 6,900 rode the buses. There were fifty more riders per day in June than in May, and there were several days when more than 400 persons boarded Pantran, unheard of in the months of past service. Resurfacing Portion W. Va. State Route 9 CHARLESTON -- Over 100 contracts totalling $19.3 million, for highway improvements on nearly 500 miles of roads in 46 counties, were opened for bids June 26 by the Department of Highways, according to Governor Rockefeller. Apparent low bids in Jefferson County include $34,385 for resurfacing on 0.85 miles of Charles Town-Ranson Road on West Virginia Route 9. 1ic00 Ticks! Ticks! Sealed If the number of people received by the seeking information about ticks Department of isany measure, then the number office in of people who are concerned Virginia, Room about them and their effects must be considerable. A.M., Tuesday, Ticks are more numerous in the Spring and early Summer -- at the time when people are getting outdoors more in the areas where ticks are present. The most common species of ticks found on humans in West Virginia is the eastern wood tick, also called the American dog tick I Dermacentor variabilis I. A species that is more frequently found on dogs is the brown dog tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus). It feeds almost exclusively on dogs and does not normally bite people. The eastern wood tick can be distinguished by the mottled white shield on its back. The brown wood tick is a uniform red-brown color., Ticks are more numerous in brushy areas and in areas where grass and weeds are not clipped. The possibility of a tick bite is difficult to eliminate. 1. When possible, restrict work and place activities to areas that are free of weeds, brush, grass, etc. 2. Keep the most frequented areas around camps, houses, outbuildings, etc., as free of brush and weeds as possible. (A registered insecticide such as Sevin or diazinon may be used in these areas, but they are only temporarily effective due to the short residual activity.) 3. Make use of registered insect repellents when appropriate. It is always advisable to carefully examine your body after you have been exposed to ticks. Parents should carefully check young children for ticks. Ticks are usually found in areas where clothing is constricted, such as the belt line, and also on the head, especially the hairline at the back of the neck. said proposals opened and the following Highways, All Hot Laid unless otherwise JEFFERSON 32-2-0.00, 1.70 Road on (State Local All Proposal $500.0O or 5 whichever is This is a contractor Prequalification eligible to bid.
