William S. Scott will serve in the office of President; Edgar Mason, Vice-President; Leila Stuckey, Secretary and Robert O. Cronise, Treasurer. In July of 1975, the three county courts established the Eastern Panhandle Transit Authority through legislation details in Chapter 8, Article 27 of the State Code of West Virginia. Under these court orders, the Eastern Panhandle Transit Authority was created as a non- profit public corporation with an initial appointment of three members from each county to serve as its Board of Directors. The representatives from Berkeley County are William Scott, Edgar Mason and Dominic Allesio; from Jefferson County, Robert Beckett, Robert O. Cronise and Lews Meadows and from Morgan County, Leila Stuckey, Gary Hole and Vernon Sweet. These persons are appointed by County Courts to serve three year terms with one vacancy to occur each year. Any person who is a resident of a par- ticipating county is eligible for appointment to the Transit Authority Board of Directors. The Board of Directors has held monthly meetings to discuss the development of the bus system and to formulate buses but rather to provide well conceived and cost effective transportation services. These ...... goals and objectives and the means selected to achieve them are subject to evaluation and change by the Beard of Direc- tors. An example of the efforts towards improved services by the Transit Authority is the improved schedule which became effective on August 21, providing increased services to   the Hedgesville, Berkeley Springs areas and a bus ser- vicing downtown Martinsburg every half-hour. , A FARM VIEW BY PA'T wAIT * Across the country, August is - Fair month.
