You weren't clear / is this the road going by Blenko?
Should have been named BLENKO a long time ago for the family they it seems have given a lot to that community. The little shows on the main street seem to all sell glass.
I like the town don't you?
Let us know if we need to write leters of support and also itwhen it happens.

Is this a vote?
If so I think they should change the community name to BLENKO, if this isn't possible then certain the street in front of the factory should be named BLENKO DRIVE this is a no brainer!
Congratualations to the WV Legislature for having this idea.
