Brown Frederick Dean Hamilton, 20, of Ohio, who was charged with murder in the death of West Virginia State Trooper Bruce T. Brown, of Charles Town, on October 14 in the Tucker County jail in Parsons, W:'Ya., and also the wounding of Cpl. Marshall M. Davisson, the same night will go to trial onthe murder charge late this month or early in August in the Grant County Court House in Petersburg. Hamilton was convicted last week of a charge of malicious wounding of Corporal Marshall M. Davisson and now he is to be tried on the murder charge. A change of Court venue trans- ferred the trials of Hamilton from Tucker County where the shootings took place, to Petersburg in Grant County, Tucker County Prosecutor J. Pat Nichols is expected to represent the state in the murder case as he did in the case of Trooper M. M. Davisson. Duke McDaniel, a court ap- pointed attorney of Petersburg, will again represent Hamilton in the trial. Both trials stem from the shooting incident which took 'place in the Tucker ounty jail in Parsons, the night of October 14 in which Hamilton shot at Corp. M. M. Davisson, slightly wounding him and then Brown, who was killed when he went to the aid of Davisson. Brown, who was struck in the' chest, un- derwent surgery in the Memorial General Hospital in Elkins.

Debra Silver sustained minor injuries. State Police cited Marcia Smith with driving to the left of the highway's center and with failure to properly secure the I'ad on the truck.

Discussed was the possibility of chancing off a country ham or ceramic bowl and pitcher. No definite action was taken. It was decided to send $2 to the IFYE; and to donate $25.00 to the Jef- ferson County Fair and $25.00 towards the Community Center. Wendy Magaha told the club she'll donate an album in which to place and keep all club news and clippings and ribbons.

JULY 13, 1978 9 Towns Delay Sewer Progress BY GREGORY MAZZONI A decision to fund further study of a county sewer system was delayed when on Thursday, July 6, officials from Charles Town and Ranson refused to assure County Commission that the system would be available to county residents living outside the municipalities. Several town officials, in- cluding Mayors Dr. D. C. Master and Kelley Lance, attended the meeting called by the county at request of the Charleston engineering firm that recently completed a preliminary study of the system. A representative of the firm explained the need for further, specific examination of several sections of sewer line that appear faulty. He noted that "quite an excessive amount of rainwater and groundwater are entering the system through bad joints or cracks in the lines." As a result, he said the system is operating below capacity. Improvements that would result from repairs to the sewer lines would be of "benefit in regaining a more useful capacity on a day- to-day basis to Charles Town. In reducing the amount of total sewerage (by eliminating bogus inflow) a significant portion of the sewer plant capacity would be freed up to address solely sewerage, and not stormwaters. Mr. Reid Geronimo received the first contribution from Mr. Jack Canary at the Locust Grove Rest Home for the Communities Center Mr. and Mrs. David Jones visited Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hoffmaster and family in Jef- ferson, Md., on Sunday. Mr. Franklin Jones has returned to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Md., for more treatment. Mr. and Mrs. John C. Zombro and family of Brunswick, Md. visited his mother, Mrs. Ella Zombro on Sunday. Vacation Church School of the Bolivar U.M. Church will be held Monday through Friday. Also, the two municipalities would gain capacity in the sewage system and in the sewage treatment plant (in Charles Town)," he explained. He said that the additional capacity might be used in two ways. "It could permit the two towns to take on more customers (living within the towns), or to considering servicing areas outside the municipalities." Though the need for a decision on the long-standing issue has been apparent for several months, town officials refused to provide more than personal opinion in lieu of official recommendation from their respective councils. The deficit in funding stems from the state's refusal to provide a 25 percent "local share" of study costs that it traditionally had granted for sewer studies. The EPA will ante 75 percent of costs, but the remainder -- about $40,000 -- must come from within Jef- ferson County. Funding alternatives are complicated by several factors: the county, which subsidized part of the initial study and possibly has means to provide further financial assistance, is concerned about citizens beyond the towns' municipal boun- daries; Charles Town owns the system and is obligated by a long-term agreement with Ranson to provide its citizens with sewer service, who they feel may be neglected if outlying areas are serviced; and town officials feel further study may provide imprecise estimates of the system's capacity. The County apparently will refuse assistance until the towns give their commitment to ex- tension of sewer services, relative to the system's in- creased capacity: A decision must be reached within three weeks to allow the engineering firm to continue the study during the warm, rainy summer months, according to county administrator David Ash.
