Weston Christmas Parade is another success

By John Clise Editor

WESTON- Five students from Lewis County High School were transported to Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital treatment after taking unknown prescription drugs allegedly distributed by another student. According to a statement from Lewis County High School Assistant Principal and Athletic Director Brian Fisher, a student distributed a prescription drug to other students. Fisher noted the parents/guardians of the students were notified, and the update was being given to clarify the situation to all parties concerned. “We do encourage you to speak to your child about the risk of consuming unauthorized medications,” Fisher said. “If you have any questions about this situation, please call LCHS or the Lewis County Sheriff’s Department.” School board officials reported the unnamed students were expected to recover. The type of prescription drug taken was unknown as of press time. Student well-being was the primary concern for school officials. During the incident discipline and ann investigation into the matter took a backseat. An investigation is ongoing with discipline expected to follow. According to reports, one student was sent to the nurse’s office for observation. Four more students were sent to the nurse’s office before being transported to the hospital for treatment. A call went out to parents regarding the situation at 3:15 p.m., according to reports.

Parade from Page 1 A special Thank You to Robert “Bob” Golden for helping with the lineup. We would like to thank everyone that participated and those that came out to enjoy the parade. The parade video is available on the Locally Lewis Facebook for those of you who may have missed it or for those of you who may want to watch it again or share it with friends and family members on social media. Gobble from Page 1 Moore, 16, followed by Emily Louk, 19, with a 20:08.5, and in third place 13-year-old Jack Waggy with 21.08.5. The oldest racer was 85-year-old Robert Cole of Buckhannon and the youngest was 7-year old Kaden Bragg, grandson of Frank and Mary Ellen Bragg of Jane Lew, and son of Aaron and Megan Bragg of Lake Floyd. Kaden’s grandparents were delighted with his 22nd place finish. Proud Grandmother Mary Ellen Bragg said, “This was his first race and we are so excited that he has taken an interest in running. He runs up and down our driveway and out in the field. We were shocked that he did so well for his age.” The race was one of the monthly races organized by the Hospital and members of the Pace Yourself Lewis County walk/run team. The group has created a twelve-month circuit for the 2020 race season. The next race will be held on Saturday, December 14, at the SJMH track in the back of the Hospital. This will be the third year for the Christmas Cookies and Cocoa Walk Run. The 2019 Gobble Gallop racers, placement, and times are as follows: Overall Place Racer name 1 Jacob Moore 2 Emily Louk 3 Jack Waggy 4 Robert Rosano 5 Jacob Chapman 6 Brian Skidmore 7 Amy Dunkin 8 Matt Herrald 9

First Lady Justice presents 2nd Rhododendron Award


Tammy Jordan, right, founder and president of Fruits of Labor, Inc. in Rainelle, WV – was presented the award during a ceremony at the Governor’s Reception Room inside the State Capitol Building in Charleston by First Lady Cathy Justice. CHARLESTON – First Lady Cathy Justice presented her second ever Rhododendron Award recently to a woman who has dedicated her life to using West Virginia’s abundant natural resources to help rehabilitate those struggling with substance use disorder and to assist others in avoiding addiction. The First Lady’s Rhododendron Award recognizes individuals in West Virginia who have demonstrated goodness and worked for the betterment of their communities. In particular, this award seeks to recognize the “unsung heroes” throughout West Vir-

ginia, whose work has made a significant difference in the lives of others. Tammy Jordan – Founder and President of Fruits of Labor, Inc. in Rainelle, WV – was presented the award during a ceremony at the Governor’s Reception Room inside the State Capitol Building in Charleston today. Fruits of Labor, Inc. is a nationally certified culinary arts and agricultural education training center, focusing on addiction prevention and treatment. “It really is just an incredible place that caters to helping all kinds of people – people

who want to rehabilitate their lives, or people who just need guidance for a good head start,” First Lady Justice said. “Tammy and her team are constantly mentoring and teaching, they’re kind, and they’re exactly the kind of people we need in West Virginia to solve our opioid problem.” Fruits of Labor, Inc. is the only American Culinary Federation-certified program in West Virginia. Their farm-totable culinary and agricultural training curriculum provides industry-relevant education opportunities in a safe environment. The program also offers intensive personal and profes-

sional development to improve future job opportunities. “It’s so powerful to be able to reach out and touch lives and say we are here with you, we believe in you,” Jordan said. “Sometimes, out of the greatest challenges, rise opportunities to recover above and beyond and we speak that every day to our students that not only are we living in the recovery effort of our community, we are embracing the recovery effort of individuals. “I truly appreciate the award, for you thinking of us, and for the opportunity to share our story today.”

Clise’s Cornucopia By John Clise Editor

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I know I sure ate until I got my fill of turkey all of the trimmings. We had a friend stop over for Thanksgiving dinner. That was a nice surprise. It’s nice to be able to celebrate important holidays with good friends. The cats enjoyed their part of Thanksgiving dinner. We definitely had more than enough for dinner and meals after. We were even able to freeze some to enjoy later. Bob Billeter, the publisher at The Weston Democrat, and my last boss there passed away over the weekend. He was 93. His obituary is on page three of this edition. I’ve worked at several newspapers since then, but he was the last person I worked for/with that understood the passion that should go into putting out a newspaper. He let me do my thing as a reporter. Over the years I have missed those chaotic and sometimes hostile Tuesdays putting out the weekly edition. Same as when George Whelan was my boss at the Democrat. There was a comradery there that really no longer exists in newspapers today. I noticed the change in the newsroom beginning about 10 years ago. Newsrooms aren’t intended to be safe spaces. They are places where excellence is expected. Tempers flare, voices are raised and sometimes even foul language can be heard. I’ve been told I’m a relic of the past. That may be true. But I’ve never given someone a pass because I was afraid they wouldn’t give me a story in the future or because I thought the personal relationship was important than the story. The story has always been paramount to me. It seems that is how things are covered these days. Candy coating the truth to ensure future stories. That’s just giving in to a source because you allow them to hold you hostage rather than hold their feet to fire to be sure they do their job; to be sure they tell the truth; to be sure they follow the law; to be sure you are bringing objective news coverage to your readers. If that makes me a relic of another era, well then I guess I am. I can live with that and sleep at night knowing I did what was right by my profession. December 6 is National Miner’s Day. Despite federal efforts to ensure safe working conditions for miners, they have one of the most difficult and dangerous jobs you can imagine. To recognize their efforts, Congress has declared December 6 National Miners Day. Why? Our entire economy depends on them. On this holiday, we should all take a moment to think about the many ways that miners play a role in our daily lives. Mined materials contribute to things like roads, houses, cars and computers. We wouldn’t be able to get much done without their hard work. On November 4, 2009, Congress designated National Miners Day a national holiday “in appreciation, honor, and remembrance of the accomplishments and sacrifices of the miners of the nation.” December 7 of course is National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. A day of infamy, the day Japan attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor, is commemorated with the National Pearl Harbor Day of Remembrance each year on December 7. On that day in 1941, more than 2,400 people died in Japan’s attack on the Hawaiian base of America’s Pacific Fleet. Hundreds of aircraft were destroyed or damaged, as were most of the ships in the harbor, and thousands of service men and women were killed or injured. It was an unprecedented surprise attack that precipitated the United States entry into WW II as we sided with the Allies and declared war on Japan. On a much lighter note. December 9 is National Llama Day. Llamas aren’t just adorable, majestic creatures. They’re also a big help to people all over the world. National Llama Day is the perfect day to appreciate one of the fuzziest farm animals around. Did you know they’re also smart, social and produce very soft wool? Some live as long as 30 years! Whether you’re cuddling up with your favorite llama or sharing some fun llama facts with your friends and family, December 9 is your day to celebrate.

Pat’s Chat

My beautiful family has returned to Walkerton, Indiana!  I was tearful after they left.  (So was Robin, but don’t tell her that I told you that.)  We love having Chuck and Scott (her siblings) close by, and it is even more precious when Chuck’s children and grandchildren come for a short visit.  My great-grandchildren, Alexander (age 14), Jack (age 12), Julia May (age 10) get to visit once a year at Thanksgiving time.  All my children and grandchildren are Bucklew’s except Chuck’s daughter and her son, whose names are Bucholtz.  The boys are very tall already.  They grow so much in a year. Chuck’s other grandson, Otto Bucholtz, comes less often from Florida.  Scott’s son lives here in Buckhannon, which means a lot to me.  What with a combined birthday get together in November and then Thanksgiving, we have all been busy.  We have Christmas with the Indiana grands when they come for Thanksgiving.  So I am going to quote a favorite Bible chapter from my devotional paraphrased Bible called Clear Word instead of writing a Pat’s Chat.  I hope you all enjoy it. This is Romans chapter 10 from Clear Word:  “Broth-

ers, my most earnest desire and constant prayer to God is that all Israel be saved.  I’m the first to acknowledge that they are very zealous for God, but it is not based on true knowledge and insight.  They don’t seem to understand what God has done to put them right with Him.  Too many people are trying to earn their way into heaven instead of depending on what God has already done for them.  Christ’s sacrifice should make it evident that law-keeping is not a means of salvation.  Righteousness comes from faith in Christ, not from keeping the law. “Moses said, ‘The man whose righteousness is rooted in the law will have to live or die on the basis of what the law says.’  Our righteousness comes by faith, not in what we can do for ourselves, but in what God has already done for us.  That’s why Moses also said.  Don’t be tempted in your heart to think that your right-doing will bring Christ down from heaven.  Or, don’t be tempted to think that your right-doing will have anything to do with raising Christ up from the dead.’  Then he said, ‘God’s message of salvation

is right here with you.  He’s written His law in your hearts and put His word in your mouths.’  That’s the same faith that I’m proclaiming.   If you confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is your Savior and Lord and in your heart believe that God raised Him from the dead, you will have the kind of relationship with God that you need.  Faith is a matter of the heart.  It is by faith that we come to Christ and are justified.  So we live for God, not in order to be saved,  but because we are saved.  As the scriptures say, ‘anyone who believes in Him will never be disappointed.’  There is no difference between Jews and Gentiles.  The same God is Lord of all and responds to anyone who calls on Him for help.’  The Scriptures also say, ‘Whoever calls on the Lord will be saved.’ “How can anyone call on God if he doesn’t believe that He exists?  How can anyone put his faith in Christ if he’s never even heard about Him?  And how can he hear about Him if no one tells him?  And how can someone go and preach to others unless he is sent?  That’s why Isaiah

said, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring us good news from the Lord and tell us about His plan of salvation.’  But not everyone in Israel has accepted this good news.  Isaiah also said, “Lord, no one believes what we’re telling them.’  So faith comes from listening to what God says including His word about the Lord Jesus Christ. “Let me ask you, Didn’t they hear God’s message?  Yes, they heard it.  It is written, ‘The voice of God through His creation reaches to the ends of the earth; its word sounds throughout the world.’  Let me ask again, Did Israel really not understand?  No, they knew and understood.  Moses spoke for God, saying, ‘I will make you jealous by what I do for others, for those who have not been called as a nation as you have.  I will disturb your complacency by speaking to those who do not know and understand.’  “This message was confirmed by Isaiah when he wrote boldly for God, ‘I will be found by those who haven’t looked for me.  I will reveal myself to those who haven’t asked about me.’  About Israel, He said, ’Every day I have stretched out my hands of love to a disobedient and stubborn people.”   Jack J. Blanco, Clear Word, (Printed in USA, copyright 2003) Romans 10, p. 1177.  Maranatha

CHARLESTON – The following events happened on these dates in West Virginia history. To read more, go to e-WV: The West Virginia Encyclopedia at Dec. 1, 1797: Journalist and politician John S. Gallaher was born in Martinsburg. He owned or managed several Whig newspapers and was instrumental in establishing the free school system in Virginia. He played a prominent role in having early railroads routed through the Eastern Panhandle. Dec. 2, 1859: Abolitionist John Brown was hanged in Charles Town for treason for his raid on the U.S. Armory at Harpers Ferry six weeks earlier. While Brown’s raid had failed miserably, his capture and hanging had a much greater impact on national events. Brown’s actions set off shockwaves across the country. In the North, many hailed him as a hero. In the South, he was viewed as a villain and a true reflection of the North’s intended war on slavery. Tensions mounted in the days leading up to Brown’s execution. Rumors of a massive jailbreak circulated in both the North and South. The jail and gallows were guarded by Virginia troops, including Major Thomas Jackson—later to be known as “Stonewall.” As Brown was brought to the gallows, he handed off a note that read, “I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land can never be purged away but with blood.” Perhaps more than any other event, Brown’s death hastened a cascade of events that culminated with the first shots of the Civil War

16 months later. Dec. 2, 1933: The Charles Town Race Track opened shortly after West Virginia legalized racing and parimutuel betting. The Jefferson County complex contained 22 buildings and included 12 stables. Dec. 3, 1787: James Rumsey demonstrated the steam engine he invented on the Potomac River near Shepherdstown. This was 20 years before Robert Fulton’s boat, though the Fulton design was more practical, and it is Fulton who is honored today as the inventor of the steamboat. Dec. 3, 1871: Statesman Newton Diehl Baker was born in Martinsburg. Appointed by President Woodrow Wilson, Baker served as secretary of war from 1916 to 1921. Baker oversaw U.S. involvement in World War I. Dec. 3, 1921: Operatic soprano Phyllis (Smith) Curtin was born in Clarksburg. She made her debut with the New York City Opera in 1953, where she sang both classical and modern repertoire. Dec. 3, 1949: WSAZ-TV provided the first telecast of a Marshall College (now University) basketball game. The television station, the 72nd in the nation and the first in West Virginia, was an affiliate of WSAZ radio station. Dec. 4, 1901: Construction of the present Cabell County courthouse was completed. An extensive remodeling was completed in 1940. Dec. 4, 1883: Social reformer Stella Fuller was born Stella Lawrence Cremeans in Point Pleasant. In the 1940s, Fuller opened a relief operation on Huntington’s Washington Avenue. Eventually, the Stella Fuller Settlement

expanded into the area’s largest haven for the disadvantaged and homeless. Dec. 5, 1892: Daniel D. T. Farnsworth died at the age of 73 in Buckhannon. As state senate president, Farnsworth succeeded Governor Boreman, who resigned in the last days of his term after being elected as a U.S. senator by the state legislature. Dec. 6, 1814: Tyler County was formed. The county was named for John Tyler, governor of Virginia (1808–11) and father of President John Tyler. Dec. 6, 1865: Artist Annie Virginia Latham Bartlett was born in Grafton. Her clay sculptures included conventional busts as well as figurines interpreting West Virginia’s historic and cultural past, with such titles as ‘The Moonshiner.’’Dec. 7, 1940:

Radio station WAJR-AM in Morgantown began broadcasting. In 1949, it became the flagship station for a statewide network (now the Mountaineer Sports Network) distributing broadcasts of West Virginia University football and basketball games. Dec. 7, 1941: The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. The USS West Virginia suffered massive damage from torpedoes and bombs. Two officers, including the captain, and 103 crew members died. e-WV: The West Virginia Encyclopedia is a project of the West Virginia Humanities Council.

Manchin announces $450K for defense research at WVU

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced $451,523 for West Virginia University (WVU) through the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP). Funding will support the research and development of military defense technology. “West Virginians have helped shape our nation and support our military through research, manufacturing, and coal mining for over a century and we have a proud tradition of supporting our servicemembers and Veterans. These awards show that WVU is a world class research institution, and I am glad to see this investment into our state ensures that West Virginians will continue to develop technology that protects our great country and our servicemembers. As a member of both the Senate Armed Services Committee and the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue to advocate for funding that supports this type of research and development,” said Senator Manchin.

Looking for furever homes


Tag By Tara Kennedy Editor BUCKHANNON — The Lewis-Upshur Animal Control Facility needs help finding furever homes for Tag and Bowie. Volunteers from Luv 4 Animals and The Animal Outreach Project would also like to encourage pet owners to make accommodations for cold weather by ensuring their outdoor animals have sufficient housing and bedding. Please contact these groups on Facebook if you need assistance.

Tag is a handsome brindle Pit mix brought in by Upshur County Animal Control, but his owners have not came looking for him yet. He is two years old and weighs 44 pounds. Tag is super sweet and loves treats. He gets along great with female dogs and seems interested in male dogs, so a slow introduction would be best. Tag has already been neutered and loves attention. Bowie is an adorable Shephard/Mastiff mix. He is just a puppy at only four months old

WHEELING — Shawn Andrew Hunt, of Weston, West Virginia, has admitted to methamphetamine distribution, U.S. Attorney Bill Powell announced. Hunt, age 27, pled guilty to one count of “Possession

with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine.” Hunt admitted to distributing methamphetamine in Marshall County in February 2019.   Hunt is facing up to 30 years incarceration and a fine of up to $2,000,000.



and weighs 32 pounds. Bowie is very playful and has not been neutered yet. He likes other dogs but chases cats, so he needs someone to help him work on that. Bowie loves attention and he would really like to meet his new furever family soon. Tag and Bowie, as well as many other loving cats and dogs, are available for adoption at the Lewis-Upshur Animal Control Facility located on Mud Lick Road in Buckhannon, so stop by and find the perfect pet for your family. Adopt, don’t shop!

L-UAC is always in need of volunteers if you are looking for a rewarding and worthwhile cause to assist. Donations of food and pet supplies are always welcome. L-UAC is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to noon, or you can call (304) 472-3865. If you need assistance with proper animal housing, bedding or any other pet needs, please contact Luv 4 Animals or The Animal Outreach Project on Facebook.

Lewis County man admits to drug charge Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant. Assistant U.S. Attorney Danae DeMasi-Lemon is pros-

ecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Moundsville Police Department investigated. Senior U.S. District Judge Frederick P. Stamp, Jr. presided.
