It was explained,"Ash Charles Town and the said, that such a plan has greater opportunities for in- vestment resulting in better returns. The commission did put its stamp of approval on expansion plans of the Blue Ridge Moun- tain Volunteer Fire Department. The department, created two years ago, wants to build a sub- station farther up the mountain off West Virginia 9. This sub- station is expected to more adequately serve the'aroa since heavy equipment trucks, such as pumpers, will be driving downhill to most fires in the region. The commission had been withholding its approval 'until the expansion was approved by the county association of fire departments The establishment of the sub-station will not mean any additional outlay of funds on' the part of the commission. Administrator Ash also ~told the commission he is looking for $7,000 to pay part of additional work for the countryside sewer feasibility study. The work is required by the federal govern- ment, which is paying "75 per cent of the total costs with the remaining 25 per cent funded by a loan-grant from the state Water Development Authority. At this point, Ash said, the.WDA can't commit itselffor the $7,000 But, he said, if the county does expend the money, WDA may refund it at a later date. Sheriff's Deputy Robert Butt, who also serves as the county's humane officer, told the corn- mission that Dog Warden Cecil Beyd should take better care of animals housed at the dog pound. Burt said he and Deputy Robert Car went to the pound Monday, October 30, found no sign of food; with water dishes empty. He said algae and fungi rose to the tops of the dishes when he filled them. He also showed pictures of amaciated- looking dogs, which he said he took on Monday. The commission took issue with Burt's charges, suggesting the pictures showed only skinny ~ dog, and they asked that he visit the pound on other days t~ determine first .hand that the dogs are being well-cared for. The commission also noted that if dogs are not claimed within five days, they are destroyed. Shepherdstown Men's Club wore in. Molar won in 13 of the county% 27 precincts and gar- nered 50.5 per cent of the total vote. In the Shepherdstown district voting for the three seats in the house of delegates from the 35th District, the voters went for all three Democrats, going with Joseph Caudle and Clarence E. Martin, Ill of Martinsburg and Terry Thomas Harden, of Berkeley Springs, all in- cumbents. Caudle led the voting with 685, Martin had 636 and Harden 517. Douglas L. Minnick, of Martinsburg led the Republican voting with 376 votes, while Larry V. Faireloth also of Martinsburg had 338 votes and Allen Goldstrom of Berkeley Springs had 353 votes.

(Ginger) Bordier of Charles Town polled 3,903 votes for the office of County Assessor and Peter H. Dougherty, of Charles Town, polled 3,876 votes for the office of County Magistrate.
