The Calhoun High School orchestra
and band, under the direction of Henry Clay Palmer,
won first place in the orchestra and band contests
sponsored by the Federation of Music Clubs of West
Virginia, which was held at Parkersburg last week.
The splendid appearance and performance that these two musical
organizations made has given the high school and the county statewide publicity
of the highest and most cultural form. No one can say that this is not the kind
of publicity that the school and county desires and should have.
The two beautiful trophies that were won will be on display in
the window of Thompson’s on Main Street. Let everybody at every opportunity give
these fine musical organizations a boost. A boost for them is a boost in return
for every citizen of Calhoun County.
Grantsville Ground Observers will
take part in another alert on Sunday and are making
preparation to have personnel on hand at the
observation post during that alert.
Vearl Haynes will be captain for the day, according to Sue
Ayers, local supervisor.
It is reported that SA-16 Seaplanes will be used in the test
alert, flying over parts of Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia.
The test will be conducted between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., and will
have approximately 3,500 civilian volunteers taking part.
If you like pizza and pasta,
prosciutto, spaghetti and rigatoni -- staples of

on Monday, May 2, Grantsville will boast its first
authentic Italian restaurant --Giuseppe’s Little
Italy. It’s at the corner of Court and Mill streets,
where, until last Friday, stood the Rainbow Hotel
Owner of the new restaurant is Joe (Giuseppe) Tarpazi. On Apr.
22, he bought the Rainbow building from Denzil and Vivian Dye, who had operated
the Rainbow for about seven years with only one interruption.
The Dyes sold out about a year ago, but soon thereafter took
back the operation of the restaurant and hotel. This time, they’re looking
forward to taking life easier and are even planning a vacation.
During the week of Apr. 25, Giuseppe was redecorating the
restaurant and installing such specialized equipment as a pizza oven in the
He will be the cook, and he regards the kitchen as his artist’s
studio, from whence will emerge such delicacies as his Tarpazi sandwich --
deep-fried pizza dough filled with pepperoni or sausage, mozzarella cheese and
sauce. Very hungry customers can order a “Super Tarpazi,” which presumably is
lots more of the same.
In order to emphasize the authentic Italian atmosphere of the
new restaurant, Giuseppe’s guest of honor on opening day will be Mrs. Velia
Zannoni, who was born in Italy and will be 89 years old in September.
