G-LtE™: Call to Our Commissioners - Let’s Make It Fair

The Free Press WV

The Gilmer County Commission is meeting on Friday, January 22, 2016 at 9:00 AM.

By looking at the AGENDA I noticed the following item:

Levy request from: Gilmer County Volunteer Fire Department and Gilmer County Ambulance Authority

Currently, the levy money is split 70/30 between the EMS and fire department with the EMS getting 70%.

Concerned citizens in Gilmer County feel it should be a 50/50 split.

Why?

The fire department has no other financial resource besides fund drives to buy equipment or anything else needed by the department.

The EMS charges the county residence every time they are called.  And if you decide you don’t need them, you still get charged.

The fire department is a body of volunteers who CHARGE NOTHING to come to your home or a car wreck no matter what time of day or night.

It is the community talk as well as listening to scanner that many times the EMS has to get Lewis or another county to respond to our county to help our people. But as soon as FCI –Gilmer prison calls for an ambulance they are right away in route.

I just wanted to let this out and maybe get more people talking to the county commissioners and voice their concerns about a 50/50 split.

All we are asking is fairness.

Thank you

Concerned Citizens

~~~ Readers' Comments ~~~

I have been a member of both organizations, I had 20 years of service with the Fire Department and currently work for the EMS, yes EMS does get the higher percentage of the levy, and yes we do charge for the runs, but what you don’t understand is when we bill an insurance we do not get reimbursed for the full amount most of the time, and quite a few outstanding debts get wrote off, we currently have four ambulances in service and two of them have over 200,000 miles on them, these ambulances are prepared to run 24/7 because we run 24/7, there are six full time employees out of which one lives in Gilmer county, and a hand full of part time employees that have other full time jobs, at times we do use other counties for assistance because we have no one else that can come in and take a second call, we have a mutual aid agreement with the surrounding counties for this purpose, and like wise if another surrounding county needs help we go help them, there have been several attempts to have a EMT class but they have failed due to low turn out, and the ones that did come for them were mostly from other counties, both organizations are Emergency services, we are here for the community, not to back stab and put down each other!

By Michael Moore  on  01.22.2016

The Fire Department and Ambulance Authority each take their own annual amount of funding needed as a request for excess levy to the County Commission who approves it to be put out in a levy call. They can also deny it. Once it is approved and put on the ballot, the voters will decide yes or no.  The two entities run together as one vote historically because the agencies want that since they are very related and necessary community services. 

The Fire Department does need and deserves more money in my personal opinion and should ask the Commission to raise the amount their annual excess levy will bring in. Ask them to change their levy call.  The Commission should approve and put that amount in the levy call, publish it and on the ballot for the voters to decide. It will raise the rate unless our tax base has increased but likely minimally. They can not simply take money away from the Ambulance Authority and give it away.

It is a simple straight forward process and queston.  Which one would we all want to do without?

Sorry to put my two cents in but it is too important for people who do not know about the excess levies to get confused. The County Clerk, Commission or Fire Chief can verify and answer any questions.

By Norma Hurley  on  01.22.2016

The levy should be left as is. The fire department gets money from the state along with the county levy money. The fire department does not have a payroll like the ambulance authority. Nor does the fire dept. make as many runs.

With Gilmer County’s aging population, access to medical services must be one of the highest priorities. This is not the time to cripple the ambulance authority and make it more difficult for them to do their job.

Instead the fire dept. should manage their money better.

By It's not that simple.  on  01.23.2016

West Virginia Hunters Check In 1,131 Fall Turkeys

The Free Press WV

SOUTH CHARLESTON, WV - Fall turkey hunters checked in 1,131 turkeys this fall from 33 open counties, according to Keith Krantz, wild turkey and upland game bird project leader for the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (DNR).

Leading the state, Randolph County hunters reported harvesting 114 birds, followed by Greenbrier (81), Preston (71), Nicholas (63) and Pocahontas (62) county hunters. Preston County hunters have a two-week season while the others in the top five counties had four-week seasons. The 14 “traditional” fall hunting counties accounted for 56 percent of the total fall harvest, which was very similar to previous years.

All six DNR districts were open to fall turkey hunting in 2015. District 3 led the state with a harvest of 371 birds, followed by District 4 (208), District 2 (196), District 1 (185), District 6 (109) and District 5 (62).

“Fall turkey harvests are driven by a number of factors, including hunter participation, recruitment of turkeys into the population, and availability of hard mast,” Krantz said. “Harvest is relatively low in many of our nontraditional counties because hunters there were likely bowhunting for deer and not fall turkey hunting. Harvest numbers, therefore, may not reflect relative abundance of turkeys in those counties.”

DNR’s annual Mast Survey Report found oak mast to be spotty at best. which likely concentrated birds at localized food sources in many traditional counties. The hunter outlook part of the Mast Survey accurately predicted a turkey harvest similar to the 956 taken in 2014.

Deer Hunters in West Virginia Harvest 66,374 Bucks During the Buck Firearms Season

The Free Press WV

SOUTH CHARLESTON, WV - Preliminary data collected from the new electronic game checking system indicate deer hunters in West Virginia harvested 66,374 bucks during the two-week buck firearms season, which ran from November 23 through December 05, 2015, according to Paul Johansen, chief of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (DNR) Wildlife Resources Section.  

The 2015 buck harvest is up 77 percent from the 2014 harvest of 37,450. The top 10 counties for buck harvest were:  Ritchie (2,273), Preston (2,242), Lewis (2,157), Hampshire (2,107), Jackson (2,094), Roane (2,087), Hardy (1,885), Greenbrier (1,884), Upshur (1,864) and Wood (1,802).

The buck harvest increased in all DNR districts. The largest percentage increases occurred in the western counties of the state where the harvest was double that of last year. Excellent weather conditions and the lack of acorns were the primary reasons for the increase in 2015.

“We are very pleased with how hunters adapted to the new electronic game checking system,” added Johansen. “We have received many positive comments about the ease of being able to check deer and other game using the telephone, Internet or by stopping at a license agent.”

Johansen reminds hunters that several days of deer hunting opportunity still remain for 2015, including the remainder of the muzzleloader season, which runs through Saturday, December 12,. The traditional antlerless deer season in selected counties on both public and private land opens Thursday, December 17, and runs through Saturday, December 19. The Youth, Class Q/QQ and Class XS deer season for antlerless deer will be open Saturday, December 26, and Monday, December 28, in any county with a firearms deer season. This will be followed by the reopening of Class N/NN antlerless deer season December 29-31 in specified counties or portions of counties (see 2015 - 2016 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Summary or visit the DNR website at www.wvdnr.gov for county and area listings).

West Fork Conservation District: Weed Wiper for Controlling Unwanted Broadleaf Weeds and Grass

The West Fork Conservation District, WVU Cooperative Extension Service, and USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service held a Weed Wiper Demonstration on the Spruce Run Farm, owned by David Childes in the Cedarville area.

Recently the West Fork Conservation District purchased the Weed Wiper for use in controlling unwanted broadleaf weeds and grasses within pasture and hay fields.

This latest piece of equipment can be rented for $50 a day to anyone in Gilmer County for their use.

The Gilmer Free Press


There was a great turn out for the demonstration and even with the rain we were able to learn a great deal about the operations of the Weed Wiper along with being provided lots of information about pasture and hay land management issues.

The host, David Childes, provided many different varieties of ice cream for everyone to sample.

The ice cream is made from dairy milk that is produced on his brother-in-laws organic farm in Maryland.

If anyone is interested in renting the Weed Wiper contact the District office at 304.627.2160 or Gilmer County Representatives, Jane Collins or Larry Sponaugle.

Also, available to rent is a brand new 2 ton Lime Spreader that is housed in Gilmer County.

In the near future we are also going to be able to offer a weed wiper for rent that will fit on your 4-wheeler for farmers who have a difficult time getting over their farm.

The Gilmer Free Press

George W. Belknap

Age 103, of Cedarville, WV departed this life November 04, 2014 in Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, WV.

He was born in Old Field Fork in Lewis County, outside of Weston, WV, March 01, 1911, son of the late Dyer and Dora Bennington Belknap.

The family soon moved to Sand Fork in Gilmer County, WV.

Being about 17 years old, he worked on the bridge being built across the Little Kanawha River coming into Glenville on US Hwy 33/119.

He went from there to Harry Deckers Garage in Sand Fork for 13 years and taught himself to be an auto mechanic and drove one of the big new school buses in Gilmer County for three years.

After three years he married Hazel Greenleaf of Cedarville, WV on May 05, 1939.

Soon after he was drafted into the navy for the last two years of World War II.  When he was discharged he and his wife opened a country store and bought two large farms and raised cattle (85 to 95 heads) on them.  He put up all the hay by himself and fed it to the cattle every day without help.  They were honored for Farming For A Better Living about three years.

Hazel passed away in 1983 leaving George alone.  Because of his failing health, he went to Morgantown, WV to live with his niece, Lillian Eddy the rest of his life.  He made many friends in Morgantown during those years.  His last four birthday,  parties were held for him and pictures and write-ups were in the Morgantown Paper by Ron Rittenhouse and the Dominion Post the next morning.  Never having lived where he could eat out often, he loved it.  Every day he and Lillian went to Wendy’s where his 100th birthday party picture is placed on the wall.  To get different foods, they went to Bob Evans in Westover ever day.  He enjoyed all of the attention he got going there.  In March 2008, Secretary of State, Betty Ireland, came from Charleston to the Glenville Courthouse to present George with a certificate and medal for being the oldest active voter in Gilmer County.  He was 97 at the time.  It would take a large book to hold all of his accomplishments in his 103 years.

Friends may call 5-8 PM, Saturday, November 08, 2014 at the Ellyson Mortuary, Inc., where funeral services will be conducted at 1:00 PM, Sunday, November 09, 2014 at the Mortuary with Elder Larry Fisher officiating.

Burial will follow in the Cedarville Cemetery at Cedarville with full military honors.
