HARPERS FERRY – The irony of Harpers Ferry’s mayor and town council going missing for Monday’s election vote recount was not lost on Jerry Hutton.

“I find it extremely sad that on Veterans Day, when we honor the men and women who died and fought for democracy in our country, that we have …members of our Town Council who are continuing to suppress the most basic rights of our democratic republic—the right to vote,” Hutton, a former town councilman, said to about 40 town residents who assembled in Town Hall Monday to witness the recount, which was ordered last week by Jefferson County Circuit Judge Debra McLaughlin.

HARPERS FERRY — Walter “Lee” Baihly was a man with a vision. He had the ability to see things that, at the time, others couldn’t.

He blazed trails, but he was also concerned about ecosystems, according to Matt Knott, the owner of River Riders Outfitters in Jefferson County. Baihly was the founder of the area’s first outfitting company, River & Trail Outfitters, but he was generous enough to offer help to the businesses that came after him, rather than viewing them as competitors.
