Recently the Greenbrier County Deputy Sheriffs' Asso- ciation asked the Greenbrier County Commissioners to agree to have a levy placed on this November's ballot to raise depu- ties' salaries and to upgrade ve- hicles used by this law-enforce- ment body. It would appear that the Commissioners are less than enthusiastic and supportive of the deputies' ballot appeal. It also appears that the Commis- sioners might be playing politics (what's new?) with their own suggested ballot. To date, the "ballot issue" remains unre- solved, l understand. Greenbrier County Deputies are woefully underpaid in con> parison to deputies in other compa rably-sized / populated counties[ It is my understanding that the cost to taxpayers for highly-deserved raises and up- dated equipment l()r our delta- ties is approximately $7 vearh' per resident. Now tiaat's ,a bar- gain any way },')u look at it! Joe Feamster, Preside'hi oi the (;reenbricr County ('ornmission- era, was defeated in his bid for re-eh2ction nornination in the May 8 l'rimarv. Mv advice to the other two (~ommissioners (McClung and t tutsenpiller, both Dernocrats): You and other elected/appointed governmen- tal employees best become re- sponsive to citizen concerns, It's( your name might appear in the "defeated" column in \,our next election bid! And you could bc beaten by a Republican ...... ,is un- thinkable as that may be to Democrats in Greenbrier County! (Democrats have been entrenched in Greenbrier County Courthotme offices for about 6t) or more years and some seem to think they have "inherited" the offices for eter- nity'!) "l'()litics and government as usual" mttst come to an el'Rt where citizen's concerns are largely ign()red except at elec- tion time. More and more Greenbrier Countians are be- coming "fed up" with the status quo. (Re: the defeat of Feamster and the '.,cry, :'cry narrow re- election nomination bid by Sena- tor Brackenrich by an unkr~own ~relativelv) challenger from Clay County.) It's time all public office hold- ers listen to citizens or else the citizens need to "throw 'era out" next election time. And voters: let your elected representatives know this in words that they clearly understand!

'['hallk VOU, Sincerely, Pritchard Farley Collins Qu inwood Dear Editor: .htdging from the descriptions of Monroe County's Jail, it cer- tainly does not sound like I would like to spend any tim(, there, t{owever, in all fairness to the taxpayer, the jail shouldn't be a "Best Western" with gua rds. So, if judgment must be made, I would prefer this jail remain open and hope the would-be candidates for incar- ceration get the word "If you do the crime, you'll do your time in Monroe County jail." As for the social programs proposed by John Cole Vodicka, of Alderson Hospitality ttouse, thev sound very nice but the only effect on the broadbase criminal is another expense t() the taxpayer. If Mr Vodicka wants to attempt rehabilitation, let him have a go .... at his ex- pense, after Monroe County is through with them, but spare the poor taxpayer. Jack Ballard (Born in Monroe Countyt Springfield, Virginia Dear Editor: I would like to warn the people of Muddy Creek Moun- tain of a cat thief, I've had a kit- ten for six weeks now, and July 30 someone saw it necessary to take him for their own. I was away from the house for no longer than 30 minutes when he was taken. It is a shame that someone has to take son'leOlle's _family pet for their own enjoy- ment. To some people that is the same as taking one of their own children. It makes you wonder what else they will take. Is any- thing safe? 1 hope this thief is en- joying and caring for MY kitten!
