Yes, It's still there, but they don't really use it for anything.

I don't know the population exactly, but due to the large numnber of people bringing lawsuits against the clendenin police officers last year, they said the town had to have a population of 1200 or more, and Clendenin is nowhere near it. As of right now we have 2 police officers.

I can't remember the new chief's name, but he seems to be concerned about what is going on here. At least I hope so!

What would your reason be for wanting to know what goes on in a small town in West Virginia while you live in Florida?

In the year of 1996 the ROXY movie theater transformed to the ROXY Music Theater, that feature Bluegrass and Country music...
In 1997 the managers of the ROXY Music Theater closed the ROXY because of THE TOWN (the city )and locals did not support the music theater,even though tickets for a (4) hour perfomances by different Bluegrass bands was only $ 2.50....
In mid 1997 the ROXY Music Theater was reopened by other people. In less that (3) months in closed again..Its closer was due to the same reason as first reason, No support from city and locals..And a few "locals" did not want the music theater to be managed by people that lived in another city.
How do I know this ? I was involved in both openings and closers.
The chief of police of the town of Clendenin in 1996 was Mr.Allen Parsons. Chief Parsons was very helpful concerning the ROXY Music Theater in 1996...He was te only city employee that helped in trying to keep the ROXY Theather opened. Mr Allen Parsons went on to be elected Sheriff of Calhoun County .

Interesting info. We moved to Clendenin 2 years ago and my husband and I would LOVE to have the Roxy open again as a theatre or venue! There is nothing to do here in on weekend evenings, and sorry, I am just not a bar person. We love places like Taylor books, Capitol Roasters and theatre and what a dream to have that a block from my home.
I can definitely see certain locals in town not wanting outsiders running it, but I think that is backward thinking. This town needs all new leadership and to move into the 21st century. There are people here scared of change and outsiders. They are only holding themselves back.

Try the website for Suddenlink cable. If they don't provide service you might have to go with a dish from Dish Network. Good luck.

I grew up in Clendenin and left at 18 and haven't had the chance to be back.. I've been around the world and now live and work in the D.C. area. I'm reaching a point in my life where I'm considering where I might retire and Clendenin was my first choice. I longed to come back home.. but, now I find that the Jr. High is CLOSED DOWN???? as well as all the great shops that we loved (Cox's, Daltons, Roberson-Paris... I googled Clendenin and cannot believe the BS that is going on with the mayor and town council. The Roxy is closed, too?? Because they don't want 'outsiders' running the place?? What a tragedy! Back in the 60's - 80's Clendenin was a THRIVING, great little town. Grand Champion High School Marching band, great Jr. High with great teachers, Bonds soda shop and 4th of July fireworks at the grade school not to mention the great greased watermelon races at the pool. How sad it is to see the decline of a great little town.

From what I understand, all the men who owned those businesses have retired and many won't lease or sell their places. Many locals are more than willing to go to Elkview or Charleston for just about everything. Younger people are moving into town and hopefully that means things will revitalize in time!
My son is going into 8th grade at Elkview Middle school and he is in marching band. Unfortunatly, Hoover is on a block schedule and many kids in band and AP courses are going to Capital because you can't get everything in your schedule except the basics at HHHS. My son doesn't even want to go to Hoover and it makes me sad!
The biggest mistake the powers that be made was not allowing a direct access road from I-79 to town back when the freeway was being constructed.

I'm in queen shoals and I'm sad to report that the cable company that serves our area is bradley communications and they're pretty sorry. the only reason I don't go with direct tv is because of the way my house sits against a mountain. anyway--out in these parts bradley is your only choice. We hope daily that one of the big guns will buy bradley (they probably hope that too!) because...you also can't get broadband internet out here (at least not where I am!)

good luck!!!!

Thanks, I was in touch with them 3 weeks ago, they said they have to come out and see if they service my road. I called again and they said they have not had the chance to do it. Dont you think they would know which roads they have service on? All of my neighbors have satelite or just use an antenae. So no one knows if they are here or not, perhaps we have no cable, i cant see any on the phone poles..........damn ! Verizon doesnt offer DSL here either
