It was raised for the first time at 8 a.m. Saturday when Bolivar Mayor Bob Hardy and members of the Town Council ran it up the flag pole in front of the Town Hall. There it will fly, under the American flag, 24-7. "We have a light on the pole," Hardy said.

BOLIVAR, W.Va. - Voters in Bolivar will head to the polls today to select five Town Council members from a field of 12 candidates. There are no candidates for mayor in today's race, said council member Robert M. Stewart Jr. Tim Collins resigned as mayor in March, but his name will be on the ballot because of the timing of his resignation, Stewart said. Council member Jenny Bruell was appointed to the mayor's position after Collins stepped down, Stewart said. In addition to Bruell, the incumbents running for re-election include Stewart, Eric Eisenman, Scott Whetsel and John Paul Hafer.

charlestown@herald-mail.com BOLIVAR, W.Va. - By a one-vote margin, Ed Hall became the new mayor of Bolivar Monday night after three provisional votes were accepted from last week's town election. Hall defeated Mayor Tim Collins with 115 votes compared to Collins' 114 votes. Collins was leading Hall by a 114-112 vote count in last Tuesday's election. But the election was too close to call because of four provisional ballots. Provisional ballots are ones recognized by pollworkers as possibly being illegal or having incorrect paperwork.
