10A The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, June 28, 1990 Lewisburg Approves The Lewisburg City Council ap proved a variance at ~ts monthly meeting June 19 to allow the con- struction of an office building for Mountaineer Gas Company. [he new business office will move from its Washington Street location to the company's pipe yard facilities at Feamster Road and Thomas Street. Representatives of the gas com- pany appeared before the Lewis- burg Board of Zoning Appeals May 30 to request the variance, but the board failed to act on the request. Residents of the surrounding area opposed the building plans, ex- pressing fears of excessNe traffic and detraction from the beauty of the area. In appealing to case to the Le- wisburg City Council, Mountaineer Gas Company officials assured the City the new construction would im- prove the appearance of the pipe yard property with landscaping and the installation of a prwacy fence Several residents of the area had signed a petition opposing the var~ ance. After further discussion, the Council voted to approve the va~ ance. contingent on the gas company's landscaping the lot and construction of a privacy fence.

Upon awakening this morning, the first comment from me to Frank was "What is the date'T' "The four- teenth of June," came his reply! I said "This is Flag Day!" I wonder if those fellows will think to put our flags out?" We've had so many bad experiences with our American flags. One Christmas I gave every single one of our families a flag to fly. That is how much I love that dear old flag -- its red. white and blue color ---- to see itwaving m the breeze. Those flags I bought in a commissaw in Dallas, Texas -- I do believe. The man looked at me 'What are you going to do with all those flags?" My reply, "Christmas gifts for tile families." We probably bought a dozen! Another year flags were pur- chased for the home, Olde Church Replica, and Organ Cave School. The one I hung on Olde Church Replica was stolen. My sister-in-law, Vera from Warrenton, Virginia came by for a visit. I said 'Let's hop in the car. I want to show you something pretty!" So we drove to the Replica. I wanted to show her the 3x5 flag we bad placed on the broad side of the building and the three little flags sur- rounded by blossoms in the flower box! "Lo and behold somebody had / 1/30fY Ily l{o,erta Patton l{odgeJ stolen the big flag! I could cried! Of course we had a little lecture on why do to steal, and what can be about it?" At our store last put up a new flag on a post. taken the same day. Both places now have flags windows.
