Merchants Meet The alleged owing of money by the Public ,Service District to the city was discu~;sed by members of the Ronceverte Merchants Association at their January meeting. Commis- sioner Joe Hobbs, the only city offi- cial present, said the problem may be resolved before they meet again. The situation arose from faulty me- ter readings two years ago at the City's sewage treatment plant, re- sulting in temporary lowered pay- ments to the City from the Public Service District. The Public Service District is contesting the City's at- tempts to collect the difference. In other business, Virgil Hanshaw anticipates preparing a periodic newspaper column concerning ac- tivities of the group. He also pro- posed adopting a platform specify- ing productive goals to improve the city and support candidates for the office of Commissioner. Melinda Utterback, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, reported two quilting frames had been donated for the Ronceverte quilt and requested cloth scraps for inclusion in the quilt, which will be given away during the River Festi- val. Utterback's proposal that the Association's meeting time be changed to 6:30 p.m. to accommo- date working citizens was adopted. Judy Pierce will chair a mer- chants' booth at the local weekend indoor flea market. Volunteers are needed. Sheri Hanshaw reported on the new street light banners and opened discussion on new Christmas deco- rations. Sue Ella Miano will check in the community to determine if differ- ent local businesses and the junior high school could cooperate in this effort. Lengthy discussions were held on further promotion of luminaries on Christmas Eve, a new history of the town, and "enticing. better atten- dance at meetinqs. A major clean-up date for city was set for April 21 (rain date: April 28), A volunteer to spearhead this project is being sought. The day will be climaxed by a hot-dog roast, Hay ride, and dance on Island Park. The next meeting will be Febru- ary 8 at 6:30 p.m, (note time change) to be preceded by dinner at 5:30 p.m. at Rudy's Corner Grill. All people in Ronceverte are in- 'vited and encouraged to attend. Maybe there are really no green thumbs or black thumbs, but rather those gardeners who care enough about growing things to keep on in the face of many defeats, and those who don't. I'm thinking in particular of a man who lives on a low-lying acre near my house. He lives beside a creek. This creek meanders its way through the neighborhood. Craven's Creek is a docile little stream 99 per cent of the year, and a prime reason we have so many horses in our oth- erwise suburban area. Six nearby houses have a fenced field each with several horses who all drink from the waters of Craven's Creek. Sixty years ago the neighborhood was one large farm, but the city grew over the years and finally ate up the land. Nevertheless, the people here take pride in their rural heritage and fight City Council tooth and nail to prevent any further "progress" and to maintain what country flavor is left. The creek is loved by all, horses and families alike. Horses lower their chestnut manes for a cool sip on a summer's afternoon and children splash and race their toy boats downstream. Mr Jones lives in one of the origi- nal farmhand dwellings, which lies closest to the creek. His house sits on a rise fifty yards from the water. That fifty yards of loamy earth com- poses his garden, a no-nonsense vegetable plot of corn, potatoes, beans, cabbage, peppers and toma- tos. An enthusiastic early morning gardener, he always has his garden in before anyone else has even thought about it. In his dark brown clothes and felt hat, he is up at dawn during spring and summer working his soil. There he is, bent over his hoe, hat tipped to the side, while the creek bubbles by and the horses watch by the fence. The Adult Classes Three of the Adult Community Education Classes announced last week by the Greenbrier County Board of Education have been re- scheduled for a later date. They are the art classes at both Greenbrier East and Greenbrier West high schools, and the pie baking classes at Greenbrier East. The dates and times for these classes will be an- nounced at a later date.
