(Russell) Burns purchased the business in 1908 and ran it un- til five years before he died, in 1965. His son, Bill Burns, a farmer who still lives In Kleffer, said, "Filings were once brought to the store on horseback. My dad used to ship rabbits in bar- rels. He'd buy furs, ginseng, and chestnuts from his customers. Once he shipped 5,000 pounds of chestnuts to Baltimore and Philadelphia--all at one time." The elder Mr Burn's daughter (Bill's sister), Mary Ethel Jordan, ran the store and post office from 1960 to 1976, when Mrs Clevenger took over. Mrs Clevenger moved to Greenbrier County from Baltimore In 1966. "My husband and I never knew much about Greenbrier County until shortly before we moved here," she said. "Our next-door neighbor in Baltimore, Violet O'Neill, was from this area and talked a lot about Kieffer, Crawley, Rupert, Rainelle, Smoot--we never dreamed we'd be living there. Then, In 1962, we came to West Virginia to look around and ended up buying Violet's homeplaee on the moun- tain here. We began living here permanently In 1966." Mrs Clevenger was born in Webster County but grew up In Pennsylvania. I Pl Lawn Clean-Up ROllers, Lawn Mower, Chain Saws, Pruners, & Shredder, Aerator, Hedge Trimmer, Leaf Blower, Tillers, Sprayers.

O O O QQQ OQ OO1 QQ OOO OO QQelDQ School The beginning of another school year is here and with it comes many activities including football, soccer and other events involving the selling of food by schools. The following tnforma- Lion should be helpful in deter- mining the sales tax responsibil- Ity regarding those sales. There are special exemption provisions for sales and pur- chases of food by public schools. Food sold by public schools, school sponsored parent-teacher association or school sponsored student organizations, to stu- dents enrolled in the school or to employees of the school during normal school hours is exempt 9er se from sales tax. The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, September 20, 1990 11A Tax Responsibilities Outlined By Official Only two types of organ~ation may inake such exempt sales of food during normal school hours: (1) Any public school which is subject to regulation by the West Virginia State Board of Education; or (2) Any parent- teacher association or student organization that is sponsored by a public school that Is subject to regulation by the West Vir- ginia State Board of Education. The following sales of food during other than normal school hours are also exempt: Sales of food by a school sponsored stu- dent or parent-teacher associa- tion or similar organization at athletic, cultural, social or fund raising events when the proceeds of such sales, after payment of reasonable expenses, are do- nated to the school or used to purchase tangible personal prop- erty or services for the school. Examples of such exempt sales are bake sales held by the school's band boosters to raise money for" new uniforms, and concession sales of hot dogs, popcorn and soft drinks by par- ents at athletic events to raise money for athletic equipment. Sales of food through vending machines are always subject to sales tax regardless of where the machine is located, who owns the machine or where the sale occurs. Also, sales of food to the general public during normal school hours are subject to salea tzux unless such .sales meet the qualifications for casual and oc- caslonal sales. A publication is available from the State Tax Department which explains in more detail the sales tax responsibility of public schools regarding both pur chases and sales.
