Waterline Break, Cory Chipps and more

Good morning Tyler County.

Sistersville is under a boil order until further notice because of a waterline break Friday evening at the corner of Main and Charles streets.

Street department workers deserve a bit of praise for working in the mud and the muck on Friday to repair aging waterlines. For their part, they are fortunate that the line broke during warm weather as opposed to cold weather that is usually standard for February. If you see a street department worker, maybe say thanks by buying him a Pepsi taste of the Carolinas or a classic Coke.

Truth be told, Mayor Bill Rice, Edwards and members of council have been aggressively pursuing water infrastructure improvements. Given time, their legacy will be taking the tough steps needed toward rebuilding an aging infrastructure so that the town can survive and prosper another century. That and hopefully establishing a thriving Farmers’ Market.

Sistersville Farmers market organizers will hold another interest meeting for any potential vendors (this includes, farmers selling produce, flowers, herbs, crafters, baked goods, eggs, meat, etc.) at 6 p.m. Tuesday March 14 at the Gaslight Theatre.

In sports news, TCHS wrestler Cory Chipps placed, but lost in the semifinals for his weight class (285) in the 70th annual W.Va. Class A/AA state tournament on Friday.
