SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE 1 5 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1978 lie Detention New Problem Commission County has until 1, 1980, to implement out plans for separate facilities for a requirement placed by an act of the West nia Legislature back in Jefferson County Cam- was reminded of this in a latter from County Sheriff H.W. a letter which outlined )ut questioned the necessity of a facility for such a small t, noting that the county is out of time, said that the not and cannot with certain,provisions law, in addition to separate facilities also calls educational and facilities, by era- trained in these fields, nited v access to telephones, no solitary con- finement and no uniforms, among other things. Wilt then wrote: "Indeed, I question our ability to ever be able to comply, even if the county builds a separate :juvenile facility. The cost of construction would not be the big item! To maintain all the staff required can.not be justified in this'county. We do not handle enough juveniles to begin to make use of all the law would have us provide In the mean- time what are we to do?" Prosecuting Attorney Robert Skinner told the commissior Sheriff Wilt's'letter was timely and important and required action. He was instructed by Commission President Tom Mentzer to compile all the necessary specifics for a juvenile detention center and present it, in writing, to the commission.

Skinner was also directed to probe further into methods whereby the Jefferson County Parks and Recreation Com- mission might be deeded land so that it, in turn, might apply for Federal and State funds to improve recreational facilities. Skinnerhad told the commission the attorney general's informal opinion was that the land could not be deeded to the Park and Recreation Commission because it is not a political sub-division. Also coming up at last Thursday's meeting was the question of where responsibility lies when a dog bites a human. Skinner maintains the law says the Agriculture Department can and should authorize an agent to pick up the dog, but has failed to do so, and in turn argues it is not their responsibility. He was ordered to contact the Gover- nor's office in an effort to clear the matter. The commission was informed that MikeEarly, of the State Tax Commissioner's office, had indicated that the present court house room being utilized by tax representatives mapping the county, is satisfactory for that purpose; but that an additional 675 square feet will be needed for the full appraisal staff. The commission will rent the necessary space, probably for one year, within walking distance of the court house. The commission was also told that the new appraisal cards had arrived, but none contain property sketches. Feeling this would delay reappraisal and raise problems of comparison, Administrator David Ash was directed to ask the State Tax Commissioner to remedy this matter. Early also notified the com- mission that if the legislature would provide the necessary funds, a full-time mapper and a full-time appraiser-would be assigned to work the county. It was announced  by County Clerk John Ott that the political executive committees had been asked to name poll workers as quickly as possible. Ott said that poll workers will go to school on October 16 and 17, and ad- ditional days if deemed necessary, to receive in- structions on utilization of the new voting machines. At the same time, Ash said that demonstrations are being held throughout the county in an effort to acquaint the public with the use of the new punch card type voting. A letter from Bob Alexander, of General Telephone Cotnpany, indicated that the setting up of a system to utilize the universal emergency number, -911, could not be fully accomplished before August 1, 1980. Also noted was the ap- pointment, by the Criminal Justice and Highway Safety Division of the Governor's Economic Department, of Kathleen R. Brown as its representative in this area. Mrs. Blackwoll Davis, representing Pride In Action and the Garden Clubs, suggested that planters be placed :at specific points around the courthouse. The commission will ask the opinion of the .Historical Society before reaching a decision. Three other actions saw the commission direct that a law enforcement officer fly to Connecticut early next week to raurn a prisoner here to face charges; order that all county heating equipment be checked and cleaned; and purchase an IBM typewriter for use as standby equipment for court- house offices. The commission was also informed that the West Virginia Planner's Association will meet September 24 through 26 at: Cliff side Motel at Harpers Fdrry and that West Virginia Governor : Jay Rockefeller will be on hand for the evening of September 25, SHENANDOAH JUNCTION Miss Lillian Myers Dial 725-5168 Miss Susan Rogers and sister Mrs. Gary Sager are on a weeks cruise to Nassau; Susan won the trip all expenses paid for two on the S.S.
