Page 8 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, May 8, 2014 This photo is the work of Manfred Jessee, a member of the Clinch River Photography Club. It is entitled "Impending Storm." -- Lumber----- From Page 1 an occasional kind word as well. The court had ruled that the judgment lien of J. S. & A. P. Gillespie (the hay vendor) of Tazewell was "first and paramount." The Gillespie firm recov- ered $162.92 from the pro- ceeds of the sale. This was the full amount owed to them, plus interest. After court costs and fees were deducted from the remain- ing sale money, Stetson Cutler & Co. collected a paltry $133.17 of the $25,000 they claimed was owed to them. Other debtors, including William Fields and the firms of Fields & Dickenson; Bell, Barker & Jennings; and J. L. Dingus & Co. collected nothing. They were left holding an empty bag. And that was that. Not a trace of Clinch River Lumber Company's mill, stables, sheds, company houses, or commissary remain today. Everything disappeared years ago. However, there IS a footnote to this story. My family kept everything. That's why I have boards which were sawed at this mill. They were salvaged from buildings tom down at-Couch Hill in the 1970's to make way for the St. MARKET CORNER NEWS Moped Riders: Title and Register Your Moped Today RICHMOND The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is reminding moped owners and operators that the deadline to title and regis- ter your moped is quickly approaching. A law that went into .effect last summer requires ;mopeds operated on Virginia roadways to be titled and registered by 'July 1, 2014. A title is $10. The annual registration fee 'is $20.25. Virginia law also irequires every moped driv- .er to carry a government- issued photo ID (does not ihave to be a driver's ilicense) and every driver land passenger must wear a helmet while riding a imoped. Drivers must also wear a face shield, safety glasses or goggles unless the moped has a wind- shield. "More than 1,800 folks :-have already titled and reg- istered their mopeds," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "We are excited those cus- tomers got a jump start on the process. Now, we want to make sure that the rest of the moped community is ' aware of this requirement and the deadline." At the request of General Assembly, DMV established an ongoing work group in 2012 to study a number of non- conventional vehicles including mopeds. That study showed the lack of any identifying informa- tion on a moped made them nearly impossible to recover after theft and complicated identification of the vehicle and operator in the event of a crash. "Requiring titling and registration of mopeds will allow taw enforcement to better track imopeds that are stolen or used in the commission of crimes and more effectively deal with moped crashes," said Holcomb. "Titling and reg- istration could also assist' consumers in re-selling a moped." In 2013, there were more than 600 moped crashes in Virginia, 12 of which were fatal. Nearly 20 percent of those crashes were alcohol-related and 10 percent were speed- related. The top driver action contributing to a crash Was failing to main- tain control of the moped. DMV will issue one license plate per moped to be placed on the rear of the vehicle. Customers can personalize their moped plate for $10 in addition to the registration fee.

Simple: It's history. *****DON'T FOR- GET the HOMECOMING EVENT at the old Russell County Courthouse start- ing at 2:00 pm Saturday, May 10.
