Can"t believe the County Commission would approve. If Mabscott cannot support their self they should surrender their Charter and become a part of the county again. That is what happened in Rhodell. Best thing that could happen is if that area became part of Beckley. If the folks in MacArthur and Crab Orchard wanted to be incorporated they would have went thru the proper steps to be. According to the U S Census 2016 numbers Mabscott only has 1350 residents, not 1800 as was stated on the news. This is nothing but a power grab and will be a speed trap to benefit a small community.

I find it amusing the Mayor and Chief of Police canít come to a consensus as to what the need is for the annexation request!! Very strange indeed!

This is just flat out wrong. People need to fight it tooth and nail.

Sadly, all comments above are true. What can the area projected for annexation expect in the way of services from a small volunteer fire department and barely manned police force? Answer; NOTHING. It would be taxation without representation in its truest sense. The County Commission will not allow this and would likely recommend that if the citizens along this stretch are truly interested in professional, high level services from all city departments, they should petition to be annexed by the City of Beckley.

The people of MacArthur and Crab Orchard go about there daily lives everyday without the need for "protection." Then out of the blue a little corrupt town wants to force its will upon us. Give us money and we'll protect you. This is communism plane and simple.

WOW. Are you involved in some kind of protection racket for Mabscott? I used to live in Beckley and can attest first hand how this annexation will play out. There will be multiple speed traps along the highway that will reduce the traffic to walmart and the other businesses in the area. This will also kill the chinese restaurant in Sophia. This is the only thing Sophia has that makes any money at all, so the town will effectively die. My daughter was ticketed for 27 mph in a 25 zone in Mabscott in 1999. The total cost of the ticket without going to court was $117.00 !!! For 2 miles over the limit!!! When we attempted to pay the ticket, we had to leave the office in Mabscott to go to an ATM and get cash because they would not take a check.
Wait until you see what kind of special hell they unleash on all the hard work that has been done throughout the years to get business in that area by harassing motorists along the highway through there.
Mabscott died years ago, lets give it a funeral and cremate its charter. And while you are at it Don, climb into the casket yourself. With your attitude, you have nothing to contribute.
Let it die

Pay close attention folks. This rocket scientist speaks for them. This is what you will get if this is allowed to go through. All this trouble so the mayor won't lose his check. Mabscott simply does not have an absolute right to exist. Enough is enough!

Yet you are the one spamming this thread and fail to understand that my post was directed at the person I responded to and has nothing to do with this inane topic of which I literally could not give two chits about.
Spoiler alert. Nobody knows or even cares who you are, much less is out to get you. Get over yourself.

After reading today's paper it looks like the decision on this has already been ruled on by the a Circuit Judge in 2008. The State Supreme Court would not even hear Mabscott's appeal. Conveniently Mabscott's Attorneys failed to inform their client that the Supreme Court refused to hear the case. I call BS. They knew. This decision has already been made. Nothing has changed. No businesses want this nor do any residents. The County Commission has these facts. Mabscott is trying to curcimvent the previous Court Ruling with no material changes in the circumstances.

Thatís the way it reads. It was funny how the paper led everyone on. They let that Chief just rant on and on. Lie after lie after lie. It was like a child was talking. And like most children it was filled with whining and infant like logic. Everybody knows the score about Mabscott. Nobody believes anything you say buddy. And after a poor performance like the Sunday paper interview, I hope you feel like an amerteur. I figure youíll be bagging groceries in less than a year. Good job Register Herald!
