Bank accounts for Blenko Glass Co. have been emptied by a gas company to which it owed more than USD 500,000. Officials with the hand-blown glass manufacturer say, in any case, that its Milton-based factory has no immediate plans to shut down. The action stems from a 2005 court case in which Blenko was sued by Big Two Mile Gas Co., its former gas supplier, over a disagreement about the payments due for gas used at the factory. A Cabell Circuit Court judge ruled in favour of Big Two Mile in September 2005 and rendered a judgment against Blenko. The two sides, however, could not reach an agreement on how to make payments on the money owed.
