WVa Legislature Holds Interim Meetings in Clarksburg

My friend Emily and Idrove down to Clarksburg last evening for the 'Tase of Clarksburg' a part of the October Interim meetings. This was my first trip to downtown Clarksburg. The town is quaint, a combination of very new and old. I liked Clarksburg! All the foods were both beautiful to look at and delicious. We had a very pleasant evening, visiting with my Dad (who was working) and seeing and hearing our elected officials.

West Virginia is a small state, and our elected officials know most everyone in their communities. Its another way in which WV is unique and wonderful!

West Virginia Legislature
The official Web site of the West Virginia Legislature.

The West Virginia Legislature is the state legislature of the U.S. state of West Virginia. A bicameral legislative body, the Legislature is split between the upper Senate and the lower House of Delegates. It was established under Article VI of the West Virginia Constitution following the state's split from Virginia during the American Civil War in 1863. As with its neighbor and former constituent Virginia General Assembly, the legislature's lower house is also referred to as a "House of Delegates."
The Legislature convenes in the State Capitol building in Charleston, W.Va.

Somehow I figured you for a political junkie.
We ate at an Italian place in Clarksburg last summer can't remember name but large and blenko water bottles were on each and every table.

A vision without resources is like an illusion.
You seem to have a vision but live in a state w/o resources to aide your precious Blenko.

Well I do not agree, we live in a state that has these natural resources only the people who own those resources sale these things to other countries. They forget where they came from and that they should take care of home first. It is a money thing. Watched a TV program some years ago and West Virginia could be a country to it's self and keep itself. We just keep saling it all to someone else. Yes this does upset me. If you got coal what goes with coal alot of minerals. People own those mineral rights that got sold long ago. Who keeps the lights on and who keeps you warm and just where does China get all that Red from?
