The GHS books are back…
Jim Lambert’s book on Gassaway High School has been very well received. We initially printed 150 copies. The book was not released until the class of 1967’s class reunion on July 4th. By the following Thursday, the shipment was sold out. The reviews have been great and the demand is high. We have completed the second run and they are now available at Walker’s Drug in Gassaway or here in our office in Sutton. There is an ad on page 3 of this issue that tells more.
If you would like to have a copy and can’t get to one of the retail locations, Jim is making them available by mail. Send your name, address, telephone number and a check or money order made out to Gassaway High School Class of 1967 to: James Lambert, 14768 Elk River Road, Duck, WV 25063.
If you grew up in Gassaway, graduated from GHS or have family ties to the area, you must get a copy of this book. It will rekindle so many memories. If you know someone who no longer lives around here but has ties to the school, this is the perfect gift, so buy yours today before this shipment is sold out.

Pet peeves… ATV’s on the highway…
My writing of last week has generated a great deal of response. Surprisingly all of it has been overwhelmingly supportive. I did a little research and frankly I don’t know why this is ignored by law enforcement. The law says that All-terrain vehicles are generally prohibited from operating on an interstate highway and on center-lined roads. If operated on a divided highway (one with lines), the ATV must travel the berm. Anyone under 18 years of age must wear a helmet.
I did find some confusing language, but the intent seems quite clear. I believe more could and should be done to limit these vehicles on the roadway.
I also discovered that the WV Department of Motor Vehicles promotes the West Virginia ATV Safety Awareness Program which offers safety awareness training. Harry Anderson is the coordinator of the program and according to the literature I found, is available to answer questions about the program. His email address is Harry.B.Anderson@wv.gov. His phone number is 304-926-0713.
