2A The Mountain Messenger, Thursday May 31, 1990 Prison... Continued from Pg 1-A Yet the county receives a share of the revenue beginning the first year at $108,882, and going to $6 million per year in five years. At the end of the fifteenth year, the facility is turned over to the county. At that time it wilt should have a fair market value of more than $120 million. There will be no liability to the county at all. No tax dollars wilt be utilized." The County Commission will be discussing the proposal this month and will possibly have a public hear- ing at a date and location to be an- nounced, Mr Alderman said, "The Hillsboro area has been devastated' by the impending clo- sure of Denmar State Hospital," Mr Alderman said. "This idea is de- signed to restore the economic health of the area. The projected revenue would flow into the county budget and benefit Pocahontas, along with northern Greenbrier County, too." Inmates would be employed at the prison in manufacturing "Waffle- Crete," pre-cast concrete building components of which the prison it- I II I serf would be constructed. Mr Powell said inmates would be paid "compa- rable free-world wages." Private Prisons of America is a corporation which designs, raises fi- nancing, and administers its prisons, To obtain tax-exempt benefits, the company can own no part of the project and must submit to a com- petitive bid each five-year period for operation of the prison. Though minimum security, the prison would be fenced ahd would utilize electronic security systems. Inmate accommodations would be designed into circular cells to allow for guards to see prisoners at all times. According to Mr Powelt, Private Prisons of America pioneered the concept of privately operated pris- ons in t975 with the construction of the Jefferson County Jail in Denver, Colorado. The firm was organized in 1986, Mr Powell said he doubts his company would be interested in renovating the main building of Den- mar State Hospital, slated to be closed this summer. "We normally build new facilities," he said.

This beautiful morning started me singing that lovely song: "O what a beautiful morning O what a beautiful day O what a beautiful morning Everything is going my way! Jackie Goodall, a well-known well-loved mail carrier, is probably singing or humming that song while delivering the mail on his route this morning throughout his section of Lewisburg. If I see jackie I usually toot my horn and wave. Yes, Jackie has another characteristic -- a smile. Always smiling, that is Jackie Goodall! Jackie I'm sure could verify that smiling, singing and walking are what the health "buffs" would sug- gest for a happy life! Does he have wrinkles? I really don't know, but if he does they are happy ones." This morning, if he had a chance to stop and chat a minute, he would say something like "O, what a beautiful morning! Don't you think so?" If it was snowing, he would probably say, "Isn't this a beautiful morning?" That is the Jackie Goodall I've known for many seasons. Oh, by the way Jackie. did you see the sun- rise this morning? My, what a big red sun over the horizon. Did you ever see anything so pretty? '1 don't believe I have," says Jackie, "and I've seen lots of them." This morn- ing, Jackie, as I heard our Liberty bird chirping (it is our alarm clock), about 6:30, I was awakened and drew a sigh of relief. "Why was that?" questioned Jackie. Because we also have a white cat by the name of Pretty Lady who loves birds, she jumps on our tin roof at night time, She is trying to catch the birds who next in the elm tree over our bedroom. So when we heard it singing "O what a beautiful morning" C- ou,c.-';;-3 I Candidate for the I I Greenbrier I I County Board I I of Education I i Wishes to say I I Thank You I | for your support in the I & 2 liter Pepsi. By Roberta Patton RQ. dgers in bird chatter, I was happy too! Jackie usually stops to speak to Vera Hatfietd, who is crippled with arthritis. Vera is the famous bread- maker who sends a loaf, and a cheerful wish along with it, to many, many folk, and says, "It does more good to me than to those who re- ceive it." Jackie Goodall sings in the Ron- ceverte Baptist Church Choir. I ven- ture to say he doesn't miss many Sundays. Everyone loves to speak to Jackie. They leave him with smiles going both ways. Jackie came to my rescue Sun- day, May 20, to attend Tristram's dedication service in New Lebanon Cemetery. I handed the microphone to him. He asked "What do you want me to sing?" How about God Bless America? Jackie was so relaxed. He Oops David Clayton Shiflett name was unintentionally from last week's listing of brier East High School We apologize, David.

O. Burns, being done on Washington love to sing." Then, with that God- (U. S. Highway 60) from the given talent, he sang the first verse of "God Bless America." Repeating the first verse, the au- dience sang along with him. I expect Jackie will be cruising down the Greenbrier River during the Ronceverte River Festival. Then he wilt eat a beautiful buffet dinner with the Valley's best restaurateur (Mike Rodoussakis) at the Corner Grill. Let's sing along while we smell the peonies, so fragrant! Also the sweet clover!
