Fair Contest
Winners Are

The Lewis County Fair is now one for the history books, but plans are already underway for next year’s fair according to members of the Lewis County Fair Board.
Secretary Jessica Luzader said that the board members were pleased with the success of this year’s fair and that attendance was not really up or down, but was average. “Considering the excessive heat we were pretty pleased. We are discussing changes we need to make next year to increase attendance and are looking at more activities for children other than entertainment and rides,” she said.

Voters Could Get 2nd Vote
On Fire Levy

The Lewis County Commission met Monday, July 25, for their regular meeting. Commission President Agnes Queen reported she had attended the Lewis County Fire Association meeting and talk centered on ways to fund the county’s departments. Queen said the association did talk about a special levy that could happen in February 2017, but nothing is set in stone yet. Firefighters are currently working issues of feasibility and what it would entail to sponsor another levy. The commission has no power over what the fire association or the fire board decides and they, along with Lewis County citizens, will await the final decision.
The fire departments have spent a lot of time in southern West Virginia helping with flood clean up and covering fire stations, while those crews are helping in communities hit by the June flood. Firefighters all agreed that it was an “eye-opening” experience and have brought back knowledge and information that will be useful if a disaster of that magnitude would happen in Lewis County. Queen also said that all county departments will be responding to all calls and lack of funds will not keep them from responding to an emergency.
