12 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, JULY 6, 1978 Zippity - Do - Dare EnerD Aware! The building of a new home in Stickel Division has created opportunities for the Donald L. Myers family to become energy aware. In the above picture, left to right, DeDe, Keith, Aaron and Bruce; their men, Linda, and dad, Don, are wrapping insulation around the water heater. An automatic timer was also placed on the water heater to reduce use of electricity. In addition, twelve inches of thermo-lock in- sulation was added in the attic as well as a proportionate amount in all interior walls. Another family project was the installation of a shutter fan ventilator which is used in the summer instead of air conditioning, Shooting Ban Sought A court hearing for a per- manent injunction against operation of a rural county firing range has been scheduled in the Jefferson County Circuit Court for June 18. County residents Charles and Catherine Connelly contended that they are "in jeopardy" from "unsupervised shooting" at the Isaak Walton League. on Rt. 48. near Loetown They say that on March 30 a bullet fired from a pistol at the League's range entered the ground about 35 feet from their home. "with sufficient force to have caused injury and or death." Attorney James B. Crawford filed the request for injunction on May 24, after the couple were unable to have the shooting stopped. The league had voluntarily closed the ranges for two weeks in April at Mrs. Connelly's request, but its members later voted to reopen it. Area law enforcement of- ficials reportedly said they were unable to interfere. Attorney for the League, Peter Chakmakian. on Thursday, June 29. filed a response to the allegations. The response denies the charges and asserts that the Connelly's should have been aware of their proximity to the firing range when they pur- chased the property in March. County, Towns Face Sewerage Deadline Officials from Charles Town and Ranson will meet today with county, commissioners to determine funding for further study of repairs to a sewage system that unites the two towns. Their failure to reach a decision could suspend the project for up to a year. The first phase of a 3-part Infiltration Inflow Analysis "study, conducted by a Charleston engineering firm, shows that the present system is faulty, with an inflex of rain- water and groundwater seeping into the underground sewer lines. The result is frequent overloading at the Charles Town treatment facility. Administrative Assistant David Ash told County Com- mission on Thursday, June 29, that the engineering firm recommended three alternative ways local governments could handle the problem-. In an in- terview Ash emphasized that the suggestions are "merely ways that similar situations have been dealt with before, in other locations; ways that it could, not necessarily should, be done." The federal Environmental Protection Agency is expected to fund 75 percent of study costs. The other 25 percent -- about $35 thousand- must come. from within the county. County Commission allocated $85 thousand in reimbursable funds for the project's first phase, a general study of the sewer system's overall performance that was largely dependent on analysis of sewerage flow and user records. The preliminary study, recently completed, points toward an additional, in.depth examination of the lines to pinpoint specific problems. Because the system is contained within the two towns, Ash said the county probably won't help. Its primary concern is with rural areas that might be served by an expanded system. Ash also told Commission that a decision must be reached "within a couple of weeks" for the engineering firm to take ad- vantage of summer weather conditions. I SUMMIT POINT Mrs. Stuart Crim Dial 725-7777 The most talked-about subject in the community during the week has been the violent, wind storm that swept through the Summit Point area last Tuesday as very few homes or farms did not suffer either major or minor damage. Much of it was to trees which were either blown over or nutilated,- ca'using widespread power failures and necessitating a major clean-up operation. In some cases, however, the results of the storm were much more serious with damage to roofs and farm buildings being reported. In one instance a mobile home was blown over and its entire contents destroyed and in another a broken electricial wire damaged, or destroyed, a number of household appliances. A storm of such velocity was a "first" in this area and it is to be hoped it is the last. Miss Genevieve Danski of Pittsburgh, Pa., has' been a guest this past week at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Russell Druschel. Mr and Mrs. Robert Barfles and family of Martinsburg, were visitors Thursday at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Woodrow Cameron and son.
