Herald of Jan. 15, 1970

Sportsmen of the Cove area are actively engaged in feeding deer, turkeys and other wild animals and bird reported snowbound and starving in some localities. Both Martinsburg and Henrietta Sportsman’s Associations were putting out corn at a number of locations, and Charles Colbert, president of the Henrietta Sportsmen, asked for help to conduct another feeding over the coming weekend. In Friends Cove, south of Bedford, sportsmen were using an airplane to drop food for the deer in the Martin’s Hill area and other isolated sections.

Fluoridation of drinking water is not practical for Martinsburg, according to John Hite, chairman of the borough’s Planning Commission and an engineer. Mr. Hite told borough officials that fluoridation was impractical because the borough had too many different water sources. In addition to the Lock Mountain reservoir, water is pumped from a number of wells into the public water system. Mr. Hite said fluoridation is tightly controlled by state regulations and that the state would require separate feeding devices.
