POINT PLEASANT — The accomplishments of local youth were the highlight of Wednesday’s regular meeting of the Mason County Commission.
First, Commissioners Rick Handley, Tracy Doolittle and Miles Epling recognized the newly crowned 2014 4-H royalty — Miss 4-H Lexxy Meadows, Junior Miss 4-H Katherine Deem and Young Miss 4-H Kenly Arbogast.
The young women recently competed in the annual pageant along with 15 other young ladies from across the county. The trio will make numerous appearances throughout the year, including at the Mason County Fair in August where they will perform a variety of duties.
Also recognized by commissioners, Point Pleasant High School sophomore Tannor Hill, a recent AAA state champion in shot put with a throw of 49 feet 6 inches. Hill’s winning throw gave PPHS’ track and field program its fifth state crown in the last three years.
In other business:
Resident Steven Hill of Milton in Southern Mason County, spoke to the commission, accusing personnel with the Mason County Sheriff’s Department, of “violating” his family’s rights and also spoke of pending legal issues in the matter. The commissioners advised he should speak to Mason County Sheriff Greg Powers about these allegations.
Commissioners discussed the upcoming meeting about new floodplain regulations on June 26.
Commissioners accepted the resignation of Kem Flemming from the board of directors for the Mason County PSD.
