Some fire department letters sent to the wrong addresses

CUMBERLAND — The 2013 annual New Creek, W.Va., Volunteer Fire Department letter drive has been sent out.

 Unfortunately some of the letters have been sent to the wrong areas. Only residents within New Creek’s first due responding area should have received the letters.

The mixup has occurred at the Post Office level.

Each year, the department creates an updated letter which is placed into an envelope with the departments return address on it.

Postage is paid for all letters by the department. There are no addresses printed on the envelope, due to the postal service ensuring that delivery will be made to all appropriate areas.

The “first due” boundaries of the New Creek Volunteer Fire Department are as follows:

Route 220 from (and including) Valley View Road south to Route 93 to the Grant County line;

Route 50 from the top of Knobley Mountain to the first set of three lanes on Route 50 west towards Elk Garden;

All of Hooker Hollow Road, Graysons Gap and Penneroil Road.

For a more detailed description of the boundaries and areas, please see the fire department’s Facebook page or official website — http://www.nc38fd.com

If you have received a letter by mistake, please disregard it. The membership of the New Creek VFD apologizes for the mistake. Fire department officers will be in contact again with the postal service to address this mistake.

If anyone would have any questions, please forward any to Chief Dustin Amtower or President Eddie Amtower, at the fire department.

  • It’s a secret It’s a secret

    Could someone enlighten us about why not even the names of the two entities bidding on development of the Footer Dye Works building can be divulged?
    A Times-News article about the bids included an explanation from a lawyer for the attorney general’s office about the need to keep the names and other information secret at this time. Despite that, the logic of not divulging at least a little more information escapes us.

  • What do we do about those who weren’t criminals after all?

    Now that Maryland has become the 17th state to (finally) decriminalize possession of marijuana, one could say that the legislature and governor should be patted on the back for doing the right thing.

  • Wait long enough; they will die off without being cared for

    The letter to the editor of April 14 (“Military veterans have few friends in Washington, D.C.”),  I am afraid, hit the nail on the head — sort of — about this next set of returning veterans.

  • Translations differ, but the message is eternal

    This letter is in response to a recent letter titled “One cannot compromise on God’s word” (April 13 Times-News). I had previously written a letter titled “Why are compromises so difficult to achieve” (April 7).
