unfortunate tragedy of unspoken events has taken place here in
our “not so quiet little community.” No, this black eye was not
caused by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department, in fact, in
the wake of a heinous crime, by acting with a quick response,
the officers involved (you know who you are) acted with the
utmost sense of duty to uphold the law, to serve and protect as
stated in the oath they took before becoming an officer of the
law. With that being said, a dangerous man was removed from the
streets, prohibiting him from doing further harm to anyone else.
the case of past and recent events, the Monroe County Sheriff’s
Department has been embarrassed by actions of others who have
brought a dark cloud over their house. Those who did are no
longer there. Sheriff Black, you should be proud to serve with
the current officers on staff because they truly believe in
their responsibility to serve
as for the black eye. I have found that the Prosecuting
Attorney’s office is under staffed, ill prepared, over
confident, and not qualified in prosecuting anyone or anything
but collecting money for bad checks and speeding tickets, which
has very little effect. If it is not politically driven to
benefit you or something that requires actually reading and
becoming familiar with the case you are going to handle in less
than an hour before going to court you are going to screw it up.
I believe you have all become complacent in your job working
here in a small town.
my recent experience with viewing the workings of the
Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, I’ve seen a lack of passion for
the law, the victim, and striving for justice. You need to wake
up, take the blindfolds off, and open up your eyes and realize
there are crimes going on in this county that need your full
attention. There are victims who deserve justice.
can’t have the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department knocking the
ball out of the park, while in the next inning the Prosecuting
Attorney’s Office is dropping the ball. The Sheriff’s Department
did a great job gathering the evidence. Why did the prosecutor
fail to use the evidence provided to prosecute?
January 28, 2010, I have not seen my mother in over four years.
My son drove me to Pittsburgh airport today so I can fly home to Texas to my mother’s
hospital room. Only in the hospital three times in her entire
life to birth her children, Mom now faces the diagnosis of
cancer, aggressive gastric lymphoma, cancer of the stomach. Mom
passed away April 3, 2010 while wearing a portable chemo pack.
Mom would have turned 80 on June 28.
wall in the Oncology wing, third floor, Arlington Memorial
Hospital, there hangs a
plaque that states the following:
cancer cannot do. Cancer is so limited. It cannot: cripple love,
shatter hope, corrode faith, destroy peace, kill friendship,
suppress memories, silence courage, invade the soul, steal
eternal life, conquer the spirit.
did not do any of these to my mother.
Mother’s passing was a complete shock to everyone but most of
all to Mom. As she has spent decades educating herself and those
around her about good health and what to do to keep it. Mom was
so healthy even her doctors asked her what she was doing to stay
healthy while they took notes. She never missed her medical
one symptom that anything was wrong, until it was too late. Low
white blood count and internal bleeding, that’s what put her in
the hospital on Jan. 22. No pains, just fatigue.

home in time to celebrate my 42nd wedding anniversary with my
husband, John R. Weber and son Daniel. Forty-two years with
John, yes, I do deserve a celebration don’t I? LOL
While I have been here, family and friends have shared the news
of those we know who now are also faced with cancer. John and I
are cancer patients too. Need I say more?
have had the support of my family during these past months, but
not the support of our community.
While we are enduring our sorrows, gossip mongers spread the lie
that I have left my family. I doubt these individuals have the
decency to apologize to my husband and son for being so
thoughtless and ignorant. My suggestion to these “Busy bodies”
is to concentrate on their own lives and the people they love
because no one knows who or when cancer will strike next, as the
cancer “roll-call” grows daily.
I return to Woodsfield I do not want to be reminded of why I
have been away so long. Memories will do that for me.
Sincerely, Katherine Weber
keep seeing this “bed tax” idea floating to the top, again and
again, as a source of income to finance keeping on an economic
developer. May I shed some light of reality on this subject?
was at a meeting recently where a representative from Belmont County
was inspiring the group about that county’s bed tax. He said,
“We’ve got over 900 beds that we tax in our county. It’s like an
oil well pumping for us.”
we impose a tax on the lodgings providers in Monroe County,
it won’t be like an oil well pumping. If you put all of us
together, we don’t have 60 beds. That’s counting the motel, the
cabins and bed and breakfasts. If you take this group of
lodgings providers who are already charging all that the traffic
will stand and tell them that all they have to do is “pass the
tax on to the lodgers,” you have not got a clear understanding
of how that would work.
have spoken to other lodgings providers in this county and we
will all tell you that there is no way that we can even consider
raising our prices to include a “bed tax”. If we do, our
customers will go on to Caldwell to the Best Western where they have a
pool, or on to New Martinsville, or on over to St. Clairsville.
So, there is no raising our rates - just not an option.
lodgings business isn't ‘get rich quick’. Through great expense
and with much determination, we have each built our businesses.
We pay an insurance you can’t even imagine for the specialized
coverage we require. In my case, the fees I pay to the state for
my cheese facility and to the county for my commercial kitchen
license would amaze you. Each lodgings provider has expenses
that are unique to what they are doing, from housekeeping to a
manager to property maintenance. Add a bed tax and some of us
will simply decide that it is not worth it.
are not Belmont County. There is no interstate going
through us nor many of the draws that they have. We have some
determined lodgings providers who do their own advertising and
promoting and provide a valuable service to the community and to
the other businesses. Our people come and we give them the list
of where they can eat in our county and the stores and
businesses that will meet their needs while they are here and
directions to get there. When I’m full up, I send them to the
other lodgings and they do the same for me.
of us are getting rich, and realistically, we are not a source
of untapped revenue to finance anything. We are making a living
by providing a service.
need to move on and stop talking about putting the squeeze on
this county’s smallest industry to generate funds for anything.
There is no way to put a spin on this idea to make it sound like
a realistic plan. What it would do is, make some of us just
quit. We have just barely enough lodgings in this county as it
is. We don’t need to be floating an idea that would - 1.
Generate an insignificant amount of money. 2. Cause some to stop
providing the service at all.
county needs its handful of lodgings providers. We are a
determined group of business people who love this county and
love extending our unique brand of Monroe
hospitality in the form of comfortable lodgings. We work
hand-in-hand with the restaurants and businesses to round out
our patrons’ stay in this great county. We’ve been working at
our own brand of economic development. We funded it ourselves
and no one ever stepped up to the plate to pay for our ideas.
are already taxed. This year, my real estate taxes doubled.
Every penny my lodgings generate, is taxed by the state and
federal government. I’m already paying my share. Sometimes, good
people with good intentions come up with some ideas that, after
close examination, are not good ideas. The idea of a bed tax in
this county is one of those. Count me out.

Morrison said, “You heard the comments; Is that, in fact, the

“Perhaps not. I know I did not imagine the judge telling me I

Selmon denied the motion following Russell’s testimony.

Well, the Jamboree is over for another year. I did watch some of
it on TV but not as much as years gone by. I did observe a few
things. I think maybe some of the groups do not make enough to
buy decent clothes to wear. As someone said, “Don’t they own any
clothes without holes?” OK, I realize how you dress at the

little as possible.

The attendance and the food were excellent. Actually, the

tell you, “you ain’t never ’et chicken until you’ve had chicken

many of us remember when the school district closed our schools
at Bethel, Graysville and Lewisville? There were folks on both sides of
the fence. Some thought it was the thing to do; others didn’t
think so and some said our community will die without our
school. It didn’t happen.
Folks in the community got together and started to do something
about it. I know more about
than other areas as good things have happened over the years.
It’s almost unbelievable what has happened. Yes, there were
special grants and help but it takes a few dedicated people to
make it work and get the community alive. Not just
Lewisville but at Bethel and Graysville the same thing happened.
I for one really appreciate all the work, time and effort these
folks have donated to make our communities a better place to
hear going green over and over. So what? Grass is green. Some of
the big thinkers tell us that cows eat grass and grain and expel
loads of methane gas into the air. Well, the British have come
up with a solution. They say feed your cows chitny and it will
cut way down on the methane expelled by cows. This might be OK
but I do not have the slightest idea what chitny is or really
care as I don’t have any cows to spread gas.

digestive system of a cow. No wonder we get a little gas.
