Boos and applause

July 13, 2013
The Inter-Mountain

- Applause to Elkins Mayor Van Broughton and Delegate Denise Campbell, D-Randolph, for meeting with local residents Wednesday to discuss ways to build a public swimming pool in Elkins. The project is still only in the brain-storming stage, but we like that Broughton and Campbell - and Randolph County Development Authority Executive Director Robbie Morris and Logan Smith of the Elkins Historic Landmarks Commission - already understand what a great asset a public pool would be to the community.

- Applause to all those volunteers who helped organize and staff the 27th annual Elkins-Randolph County Chamber of Commerce Mountain State Street Machines Auto Extravaganza in Elkins last weekend. Along with the Martin Street Fair, a big success in its first year, the colorful event brightened the area's Fourth of July holiday weekend and made thousands happy.

- Applause to Davis & Elkins College, currently in the midst of its third year of hosting the Governor's School for the Arts. This year, 113 students from across the Mountain State have come to D&E to showcase their talents and learn from experienced faculty and guest artists.

- Boo to the two individuals who were reportedly selling tickets to a non-existent charity dinner for the Randolph County Humane Society this week. The RCHS was not promoting any such dinner and the two youths are not affiliated in any way with RCHS. How low do you have to be to take advantage of peoples' love for animals? The Elkins Police Department is investigating the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call the EPD at 304-636-0678.
