LES students visit public library

During the week of Oct. 12, Lewisburg Elementary School students in grade K-5 walked to the Greenbrier County Public Library.  Each class spent time learning about the Library and checked out a Library book. If a student didn’t already have a Library card, then they received their very own card. Pictured is Mrs. Tipton’s Kindergarden class after checking out their books.

‘Drive Like Your Kids Live Here’
Commuters on Court Street in Lewisburg were met with signs on Friday morning urging them to slow down. Court Street is used by many motorists as a bypass to Rt. 219 during the morning and afternoon rush hours, and residents have raised their concerns about speeding cars and drivers talking on their cell phones to City Hall for years. Court Street resident and mother Cindy Lavender-Bowe ordered the signs and distributed them to her neighbors, many of whom gladly placed them in their yards. Bowe said that some neighborhood mothers met with Mayor John Manchester and Council person Joseph Lutz on Thursday morning so they could observe the traffic and perhaps come to a more permanent solution to the problem.
