Governor's View By Governor Gaston Caperton In the past week I've had the opportunity to visit Tucker, Preston, Monongalia, Ohio, Mar- ion, Harrison, Fayette, Raleigh, Mason, Jackson, Wood, Wirt, Ritchie, Marshall, and Brooke Counties. It seems we're getting more snow in April than we had in January and February com- bined. Remember Concord Char- lie, our fearless grounghog prog- nosticator, who saw his shadow on Groundhog Day? But isn't our sixweeks about over'? On April 1 1 singed more than a dozen pieces of legislaUon into law, including our massive Jobs program I~e discussed xvith you before. There were two bills, however, I think we'll all look back upon in years to come that didn't receive much publicity. First, the" "Rails to Trails" bill is now law. West Virginia has the opportunity to create thou- sands of Jobs attracting tourists to walk or cycle along our scenic mountains and valleys. In many cases, abandoned railroad beds are ideal for such trails. The trail along north central West Vir- ginia, which begins at North Bend State Park, is an example of what we can do all across the state. I predicted when I signed the bill that, in five years, our "Rafts to Trails" program would mean as much as whitewater rafting to our economy. Speaking of whitewater raft- ing, I was particularly pleased that more than 20 professional outfitters showed up on a snowy afternoon in Fayette county as I signed the "Whltewater Commis- sion" bill into law. This measure provides for a more direct man- ner of self-regulation for the In- dustry and establishes a three- year trial period for expanding the use of our whltewater rivers. This bill could result in an additional $10 million in revenue for our tourism industry this year alone. Tourism is already the fastest-growing segment of our economy, and I'm pleased to work with its leaders in making West Virginia "A Welcome Change" for millions of Ameri- calls. I also want to salute the West Virginia contractors' Association and its hundreds of volunteers for its April "Trash Mash." This group is cleaning up a dozen dump sites around the state. Along with our "Make It Shine" program, I welcome every citi- zens' effort to make West Vir- ginia the bright and shinning example of beauty we know it can be. Well, this is a busy time, and I cannot help but recall the ad- monition from Ben Franklin: "You may delay, but time will notllll" See you next weekl Monroe Math Field Day Participants Recognized The annual Monroe County Math Field Day was held at Un- ion High School March 17 with 75 students compeUng.
