Legislative Update – by – Delegate Brent Boggs - House Majority Leader - 08.05.13

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  My thanks to Justin for some surprise assistance last week.  He was in Braxton County on business overnight and stopped by one evening while I was working late on the railroad.  Thanks to his finishing the mowing I had set aside for last Saturday, we were instead able to spend the day with Justin, Jen and the grand kids on Elk River and Sutton Lake; fishing, picnicking and swimming.  We enjoyed a wonderful day with family that I very much appreciate.

I know there is quite of bit of concern over the newly implemented traffic plan at the Rt. 5 and Rt. 33 intersection at Hayes City in Glenville.  Several months ago, I had contacted the DOH Commissioner’s office regarding concerns for the area after the yield signs were installed that seemed to create a hazardous situation.  Likewise, the 3-way stop they implemented August 01 seems cumbersome, confusing and certainly not one that keeps the traffic flow on the move.  I believe there is a better solution; one that is a more productive and efficient configuration for this busy intersection.

I will continue to urge DOH traffic engineers to work with the community for a better approach.  Likewise, I encourage everyone with concerns on this to contact the WV Department of Transportation – Traffic Engineering Division at 304.558.3063 to provide your input and suggestions.

Speaking of roads - over the past year or so, I’ve noticed stickers on the fuel pump at several gas stations, providing a breakdown of the amount of tax on each gallon of fuel.  The fuel tax truly is a big bite out of the purchase price of each gallon of fuel.  In a recent conversation with my friend, Jan Vineyard, Executive Director OMEGA, I explained that it would be helpful and informative to add an additional informational sticker that elaborated on our state road system and how the fuel tax is spent.  While the information would not fit on a small sticker, there is quite a bit of additional information that would be helpful.to supplement the pump data:

•  Every state surrounding West Virginia has a lower percentage of state maintained roads than West Virginia.  Most states have local, county or township roads that are supported by local taxes in those states.

•  The WV DOH has statutory authority for the construction, improvement, and maintenance of nearly all public highway miles - approximately 36,000 miles or 93% of the roads in the state - which is among one of the highest percentages in the nation.

•  The WV DOH is responsible for the sixth-largest state maintained highway network in the nation.

I hate taxes as much as anyone else.  And, I drive thousands of miles to work annually, paid for out of our family budget.  However, everyone wants and needs good roads and bridges. It is a fact is that inflation is consuming available funds for material costs.  Oil based materials have more gone through the roof.  Also, more fuel efficient cars and trucks equate to fewer gallons purchased, which in turn, means less motor fuel tax dollars available for road construction, maintenance, repaving, bridge replacement and repairs.  Additionally, bad roads are dangerous and costly in terms of vehicle maintenance.

The Governor’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Highways continues to explore the issue.  Meanwhile, it would be worth the time to go to the website for West Virginians for Better Transportation at: www.keepwvmoving.org.  The website has a wealth of information regarding our roads, bridges and where our fuel tax dollars are spent.

Finally, I want to thank those citizens that attended the second of our local meetings regarding healthy activities, family fitness and recreational facility needs for Braxton County.  We experienced another great turnout of concerned citizen and community leaders with great ideas, innovative programs and looking for a brighter, healthier future for everyone.

I wish to thank Mary Chapman, Director of the Braxton County Senior Citizens Center for hosting the meeting.  Our next meeting will be held in late August at the Flatwoods Community Building.  Since this is a county-wide initiative, it’s important to move the meetings around the county.  I will provide additional information in the next few weeks regarding the August meeting and additional information on how you can become involved.

Please send your inquiries to the Capitol Office at:  Building 1, Room 224-M, Charleston, WV 25305.  Or, call the Capitol office at 304.340.3220; Assistant to the Majority Leader, Jennifer McPherson at 304.340.3942 or fax to 304.340.3213.  If you have an interest in any particular bill or issue, please let me know.  For those with Internet access, my e-mail address is: “Brent.Boggs@WVhouse.gov” .

You may also obtain additional legislative information, including the copies of bills, conference reports, daily summaries, interim highlights, and leave me a message on the Legislature’s web site at www.legis.state.wv.us/.  When leaving a message, please remember to include your phone number with your inquiry and any details you can provide. Additional information, including agency links and the state government phone directory, may be found at www.wv.gov. Also, you may follow me on Facebook at “Brent Boggs”, Twitter at “@DelBrentBoggs” , as well as the WV Legislature’s Facebook page at “West Virginia Legislature” or on Twitter at twitter.com/wvlegislature.

Continue to remember our troops - at home and abroad - and keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers.  Until next week – take care.

Mabel Geneva McMorrow Kuhl

The Gilmer Free Press

Mabel Geneva McMorrow Kuhl

Age 94, passed away on the afternoon of November 19, 2012 in Parkwood Assisted Living Center in Idaho Falls, ID.

Old age claimed Mabel at the end of a life that began at the end of World War I and spanned the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, World War II, the Civil Rights Movement and the Internet.

Mabel was born on November 16, 1918 at Mill Creek in Braxton County, near Frametown, West Virginia: the oldest of twelve children born to Roy and Bessie (Stout) McMorrow.

Siblings who survive Mabel are: Audbert McMorrow, Gail McMorrow, Fred McMorrow, Carolyn Gray and Rita Urbin. She was preceded in death by her sisters: Ann Koyro, Flossie Bosley, and Jean Raines and brothers: Ray McMorrow, Vance McMorrow and Paul McMorrow.

Mabel graduated from Gassaway High School in West Virginia and married Frank Dorsey Kuhl on January 20, 1940, who preceded her in death on March 22, 1982.

Frank and Mabel lived in Baltimore, Maryland during World War II where Frank worked in the shipyards as a carpenter building Liberty ships.

They moved to Lewis County in 1945 and Mabel lived in Westfield and later in Jane Lew until 1990 when she moved to live near her son Earl in the Seattle, WA area. Frank and Mabel raised three children who all survive Mabel: Margaret (Kuhl) Craig of Morgantown, WV, Earl Kuhl of Ocean Shores, WA and Roger Kuhl of Idaho Falls, ID. Also surviving are six grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.

Throughout much of Mabel’s life she was an outstanding housewife, gardener, and cook and took tremendous pride in meal preparation and canning and preserving all kinds of fruits and vegetables harvested locally in central West Virginia.

She very much enjoyed autumn drives with Frank in West Virginia to experience the many vivid colors of the hillsides. Her gardening skills included both flowers and vegetables, and her giant dahlias at our home in Westfield were gorgeous every year.

She was active in the McCann’s Run United Methodist and Mt Hebron United Methodist Churches.

She worked many years for the Lewis County Board of Education in Weston, WV where she was an Audio-Visual Librarian for the District.

Mabel will definitely be missed: however all things considered 94 Years is a good long run. Her quality of life had diminished significantly and those of us who were close to her firmly believe that she is in a better place.

Graveside services were held on Friday, July 12, 2013 at 1:30 PM from the Broad Run Church Cemetery in Jane Lew, WV with Reverend Clifford West officiating.

Interment followed services in the family lot of the cemetery.

Hardman-Paletti Funeral Home of Weston is in honored to serve the family of Mabel Geneva Kuhl.
