It joins nearly 4,000 other Subway Restaurants around North America, Mr Smith says. "Ours has been the fastest-growing fast-food franchise in the United States for the past three years," he adds. "We hope to draw a lot of people coming off the interstate. I know there are other restaurants in our vi- cinity, such as Hardee's and Shoney's, but we're not really com- peting with them-we don't have the same type menu." Mr Smith, 43, is married to the former Donna Meadows, whose family is from Greenbrier County. She grew up in Woodbridge, Vir- ginia, and now works at Superior Services, a bookkeeping firm in Fairlea. The couple has three chil- dren. "We like small-town life," Mr Smith says. "Where we lived in New Jersey it was very congested. We had all the modern conveniences we needed, but there were high taxes and crime to go along with that. We wanted our children to get a good education, be closer to my wife's family, and enjoy the fresh air. We really like it here--and it's still close enough by the interstate to larger shopping areas when we want to go." s' Week in Government fifth year, Secretary of is sponsoring the State Government" pro- een high school juniors from throughout the SPend , an expense-paid 'SUmmer at the State Capi- ~g in the Secretary of exchanging ideas with and becoming in- CUrrent issues facing West sponsor the program and share in my belief that the best way to inspire young people to take an active rote in developing West Virginia's future is to give them a chance to partici- pate in the governmental process."
