Once again folks from the Cabell County Sheriff’s Detective Bureau arranged for their Annual Easter Egg Hunt held Thursday, March 28th at the Sheriff’s Field Office, Howell’s Mill Road, Ona. The Cabell County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, in co-sponsorship, with the Cabell County K-9 Association, made sure children from Ona Elementary (PreK thru 2nd grade) received plenty of goodies at this year’s event. The hunt once again proved to be a delightful event! Although days before the event had been cold, damp, dreary and a little snowy… Thursday was much warmer and offered a beautiful day for kids to search for the illusive, brightly-colored eggs. More than 1000 eggs were

hidden across the ‘front yard’ at the Field Office. Eggs were filled with candy and children were filled with ex-

citement as they waited – not so patiently – for the event to begin. Children’s screams of delight echoed in the air as the hunt was

on! More than 200 students, sibSEE HUNT ON PAGE 5

The Watchmen of the City By Justin Waybright

MILTON - Dean Bishop and Kyle O’Dell wake up in the morning, put on black uniforms, a gold badge and a loaded Glock .45 caliber. Inside a black and white Ford

Crown Victoria, the young men change mindsets and transform into fearless protectors. They drive to their office of 2,500 people - the city of Milton. “To Protect and Serve” tattoos the sides of their cruisers. This is more than a logo - to the 10member-police force, it’s life. Since Jan. 1, 2013, local offi-

cers have served 30 felony arrests - almost double the amount of last year’s totals. The black and whites of Milton feel the soaring arrest rate. Hours of investigations, paperwork and planned drug busts have overtaken their busy schedules. “I can feel the change - to me

it’s getting worse, and it’s in drugs,” said O’Dell. “It started getting heavy with one or two arrests with meth, but now, three or four might get arrested - one case can turn into five or six felony arrests.” Bishop agreed. “It all started in January,” he SEE WATCHMEN ON PAGE 8

Hear decades of happy tunes as Jonathan Edwards plays Woody Hawley Concert Series CHARLESTON - Get ready for a fun, toe-tappin’ time as Jonathan Edwards brings an energetic show of feel-good tunes to the Clay Center’s Walker Theater Saturday, April 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the next Woody Hawley Concert Series performance. Enjoy an acoustic mix of folk, country, bluegrass and more as Edwards entertains with witty stories from his time on the road and shares decades of original music. Armed with a guitar, a harmonica and his amazing tenor voice that seems to grow sweeter with time, this colorful performer will have audiences smiling from the first chord to the final ovation. A talented showman who’s been making music for more than 40 years, Edwards was thrust into the spotlight when his surprisingly upbeat Vietnam War protest song “Sunshine” rocketed

to the top of the charts in 1971. After a busy tour schedule and a demanding round of public appearances, Edwards retreated to a more private lifestyle but has continued to write, record and perform around the world. A star in the Huntington music scene with her own avid following, local Indie artist Sasha Colette will open the show. The Woody Hawley Concert Series features celebrated singersongwriters in an intimate, cabaret-style setting. All shows take place on Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are still available for this performance and the May 11 season finale featuring Peter Yarrow of Peter Paul & Mary. The 2012-2013 Woody Hawley Concert Series is sponsored by Atkinson & Polak, PLLC. Single tickets are $18 for Jonathan Edwards and $20 for the Peter Yarrow season finale. Call 304-

Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine We took a trip one spring to Beckley to visit the Exhibition Coal Mine. As many years as we had lived in West Virginia, we never took the time to visit the coal mine. My husband’s Dad worked in the coal mines in Logan County many years ago and we have appreciated all the coal miners who dig for the coal. While the equipment is much more up-to-date, it is still a dangerous job. The man who took us on the tour of the mine used to work in the mine and he had excellent knowledge of the working mine. We got into a car and he took us a little way into the mine and stopped. He said if anyone wanted off the car, this is the time as we would not be allowed to get off anywhere else until the end. Well, I don’t like closed in and low places but he assured us that this was the lowest it would get and it was true. The mine was not so narrow, but the low ceiling is something to get used to. The guide also told us how in the old days the miners would take birds into the mine and when the birds didn’t make any noise it was time to get out as the gases in the mines were affecting the birds and therefore affecting the miners. A worker could die from the fumes but they couldn’t smell them. The coal miners worked to make a living for their families and coal is still in our state for mining. Let’s get digging and put people back to work. The Exhibition Mine in Beckley is a nice trip and tour for anyone interested in the history of coal mining in West Virginia. There is also a house to tour when the mine trip is completed. The house is a replica of what [a house] the coal miners lived in back in the old days. The tour of the mine gave me more appreciation of the miners who worked in the dark to bring us light for our homes and businesses Hope you get to take a trip and visit the mine.

HUNT FROM PAGE 1 lings, and a few guests searched for their prizes, running from place-to-place looking up and down; checking out every nook and cranny they could find. One by one the eggs were gathered and put in baskets and plastic bags. Some eggs were held in the children’s arms as they raced on to find another hidden treasure. As in the past, a special guest was on-hand to visit with the children. That’s right – although over-scheduled for the upcoming weekend - the Easter Bunny himself showed up for the occasion! Children received a gold dollar, Sheriff Badges, stickers and coloring books from the floppyeared fella; while many had their picture taken with him as well. “Thanks” goes to Chick-fil-A, Barboursville, for donating coupons for giveaways. With many deputies in attendance for ‘crowd control’, children had an opportunity to interact with the deputy’s oneon-one, talk and laugh in a relaxed fun-filled atmosphere. Much enjoyment was had by all - from the children to the adults – and an important message was shared with all those who came out for the hunt. Cabell County Deputy Sheriff’s Association president Sgt. Robert McQuaid and Cabell County K-9 Association president Sgt. Doug Adams realize the importance of children having some good oldfashioned fun, getting together and enjoying the day. But the men also hoped that the children took a little ‘something extra’ with them when they went back to school on Thursday. A message that says, we’re here – we’re around, all you have to do is come to us. Don’t be afraid of

She ran the 3.1 miles in 29.52.7 and finished 24th in the field of 45. Jacob Burcham, son of Lion Renee' Burcham, chair for this event, came in first overall in 16:35. Lion Renee' also ran the 5K, coming in 27th. The club wishes to thank St. Mary's Medical Center for being the corporate sponsor for a second year. This support from St. Mary's is invaluable. The money raised from this event will go to support many needs in the Barboursville area. Other sponsors for our 5K included Advantage Toyota, Woody's Kitchens, Graphic Solutions, Wyngate Senior Living Community, Delegate Doug Reynolds, and Delegate Kevin Craig. We also appreciate their support.

And they’re off! The race is on! The Barboursville Lions Club continues to seek out people who have a desire to serve their community. The club will be having a spring membership roundup on Tuesday, April 9, 2013. At that time the club will provide a free meal and a power point presen-

tation to new prospects to inform them about the Lions and the Barboursville Lions Club. If you are interested in attending, call President Charlie Buzzard to reserve a place at the table. His phone number is (304)736-0310.

WeeklyDevotional Hit TV Show Directed by By Mary Jane “APRIL’S ACTION” Thought for the week: The fool hath said in his heart, there is no GOD. They are corrupt; they have done abominable works, there Is none that doeth good – Psalm 14:1 (KJV) The sunshine is so bright this morning, course that’s when I am writing this column, it may snow today, or tomorrow. The Easter season, the April Fool’s day, have passed and we are planning ahead to the spring season. Do you remember in school, how the April fools jokes were played? One I remember was to make a phone call to someone and ask, “Is your refrigerator running?” They usually questioned, and went to check, upon a return answer, you would say “good, did you catch it? April fool.” One famous hoax was televised in 1957, showing the Swiss people harvesting spaghetti from trees, thousands of people called in to the BBC channel, wanting to buy a spaghetti tree. Of course today this would be a money making scam. We all have played an April fool joke, at one time or another on someone, and we have made some foolish decisions in life also. The lips of the righteous feed many; but fools die for want of wisdom, Proverbs 10:21 Just as some question God, they can give reason for why and what in their own minds, and try to convince others. But they are only making fools of self. Professing them to be wise, they become fools. Romans 1:22. When the sky is so blue, with the bright sunshine, you can almost smell spring in the air again. Thoughts go to your head about planning ahead, like cousin ED, spreading his ground enrichment and providing me some too - thank you! It’s the waiting time of year, we wait till it is the right time to open wide those windows and clean out the winter cobwebs. We plan on garden and flower planting, and even the birds know too. Listen some morning as they sing there Halleluiah song of praise for the coming spring. By them shall the fowls of the heaven have habitation, which sing among the branches. Psalms 104:12. April, dear April, come enter my dreams, and rid me from cold winter chills, Banish the rain and those blustery winds, and warm up our countryside hills. Yes, God is alive and well in his heaven, as He sends us a new season to enjoy; we all have troubles and trials But where would you be without, God to pray for help and guidance. Ask any old Christian saint, and they will verify the many times God answered prayer in their lifetime. Do not be like the April fools, and not have trust in the Creator of All. Prayer: One again our Father in heaven, we thank you for the springtime and all its glory to come. Amen.

As filming was taking place, he reached out to WVSU Assistant Professor Danny Boyd thanking him, as well as WVSU Assistant Professor Steve Gilliland and former WVSU Professor David Wohl for their role in putting him on the path to success. “I say this with all sincerity, it may have been 20 years since I was at State, but if it weren't for you, I wouldn't have had any of the opportunities in film and TV that I've had,” Kelly wrote to Boyd. “I'm deeply indebted to you and David and Steve. And I will never be able to fully express my gratitude toward you especially.” Kelly has worked on the show since 2010 as a first assistant di-

rector after working on the television show “The Gates” in a similar role. “Rick was just a really good kid and a really hard worker,” Boyd said of his former student. “He was here during our ‘golden age’ when we made four feature films in a row and we had a number of students who were able to get good experience and then go on to work in the big leagues.” In fact, the very first professional experience listed on Kelly’s extensive resume is the 1991 film “Paradise Park,” which was written and directed by Boyd. “WVSU's Communications program uses an interdisciplinary approach,” added Gilliland, “that enables our students to learn about film, radio, television, public relations and theatre. Rick learned some of the basics of cinematography in filmmaking class. He also learned by directing fellow students in a production of Christopher Durang's avantgarde play, ‘Titanic.’” Kelly graduated from West Vir-

ginia State University in 1992 and has worked steadily in the entertainment industry since his graduation on both films and in television. He worked on the “My Name is Earl” television series from 20062009 as both a second assistant director and first assistant director. In addition to his work in serial television, Kelly has also worked on a number of made- for-television movies, as well as big budget Hollywood movies. Among Kelly’s film credits are work on “Constantine,” “The Polar Express” and “The Scorpion King.” During the nearly 20 years he has worked in the industry, Kelly has stayed in touch with those who launched him on the path at WVSU. “He sent me a note and said that he wouldn’t have been able to do all that he has done without me,” Boyd said. “I told him that I wouldn’t have been able to make movies without his help and that of all my students.”

Arrest after arrest - Milton Police Chief Gary Lilly, Cpl. Kyle O’Dell and Patrolman Dean Bishop celebrate 30 felony arrests this year. The three-month number almost doubles the amount arrested last year. Photo by Justin Waybright said. “When I first started here, most were just petty arrests, but now there are felonies all the time and crimes are getting more serious.” O’Dell has served Milton for nearly four years. The young officer has watched the drug game change and the streets become wiser. “I’m seeing more serious crimes,” he said. “The drug scene is blooming big time we’re getting felony after felony after felony.” Milton Police Chief Gary Lilly has served in law enforcement for nearly two decades. He’s watched city streets fight and twist residents into drug pushers. But he’s fighting back. “About one-and-a-half years ago, I stood up before the city and declared a war on drugs,” Lilly recalled. “I don’t think we’ve let them down - I’m proud of my guys.” The police chief continued, “Years ago, this town had quite a few bars, and we’d break up fights and deal with alcohol, but now drugs are part of it, and there’s more violence and weapons - it’s a whole different

world.” Lilly looked outside city hall’s main door with determination. “We’re out to protect and serve you…to work for youhopefully this [the 30 felony arrests] is showing you we’re doing that,” he said, boldly. During adrenaline-filled felony arrests, strong bonds are vital, officers agreed. The brotherhood at Milton’s police department is undeniable. “They’re like a close family that has each other’s backs,” said Milton Mayor Tom Canterbury. Lilly agreed, “We all bleed the same - we’re all brothers - that’s stronger now than ever.” Bishop and O’Dell agreed. The two may joke with one another, but in the clutch, they’re ready to lay down their lives for each other and the residents they protect. “He won’t leave me - he knows I’ll go with him no matter what,” said O’Dell, looking toward Bishop. Four years ago mayoral candidate Canterbury promised he would strengthen Milton’s police. After years of continued support and upgrades, he has

The boys in black and white - Milton’s police force stands in unity outside city hall. Area authorities have worked with these brave men to rid the streets of more than 30 felons this year. Courtesy Photo kept his word. The mayor believes the city’s police FORCE is the strongest in West Virginia, among others with similar budgets and sizes. “There’s no department like this in the state,” said Canterbury. “I hear it from everybody in three years, the police force has doubled in size, received new cruisers, new radars and promotions.” Community members are noticing the thicker police presence. Milton Elementary Principal Kim Cooper is proud of area officers. “Anytime I need those boys, they’re just a phone call away and they’re here,” said Cooper. “They take the sticker on the side of their cars ‘protect and serve’ to heart.” The community leader has watched the city change. He’s aware of the drug issue. “It’s not like it was few years ago - the world has invaded our little corner of paradise, but it feels good to have the police protecting us and providing the safest environment possible,” said Cooper. O’Dell and Bishop are family men. Both have a wife and kids. For them, protecting children is more than part of a job title: it’s in their blood. “Every time we go into a middle or elementary school, the kids know us, and aren’t scared of us - they know we’re here to help,” said O’Dell. “At schools, we may be the only positive influence they see, because some go home to a horrible domestic life.” Having a heart for children hurts, the officers agreed. Dealing with crimes where kids are involved often shines light on

dark truths. “Sometimes we have to make drug busts where kids are involved, like the one on Washington - that one tore me up,” said O’Dell. “It definitely brings you closer to your wife and kids - it lets you know you’re still human.” Bishop agreed. “It makes me appreciate the time with my family more,” he said. Ensuring a future for area children is the police chief’s main goal. Lilly knows protecting them is vital. Inside his office, an area resident brought in a toddler, who survived a drug addicted home. The baby was born, still withdrawing from hard drugs. The police chief pointed toward the child, holding back emotion, “Here’s what I live for.” The person looked toward Lilly and cried. Tears streamed down the county resident’s face. “I thank you and the police department from the bottom of my heart for saving babies and children,” the person said. “The children…deserve…better.” The area resident left the police department with tears of joy. The person looked toward the houses along Milton’s main streets; toward ones recently busted for meth and other drugs. “These kids are living in Hell with nothing to eat while parents are in drug stupers,” the concerned citizen said. Lilly was humbled. “This is heartbreaking,” the law enforcement veteran said. “But, it’s a blessing to see a life saved - they’re our future.” Canterbury agreed. He is proud of the efforts made by his

police team. The city leader sees an even stronger police department in the near future. “We’re not done yet,” he said. “We’re hoping to soon have a facility to take care of drug abuse and rehabilitation and maybe hire a meth tech and a detective.” Lilly is working to make this all happen as soon as possible. During the last two weeks, his men wrote 145 citations during a state-sponsored speed enforcement effort. The police chief believes 30 felony arrests is just the start of this year’s success. He feels a major one coming soon, involving drug distribution. “We’ll get that big one on the interstate - it’s just a matter of time,” said Lilly. The police officers thanked county deputies, state troopers, state fire marshal officers and city leaders for supporting them and helping in 30 felony arrests this year. Canterbury is proud. “They’re out here doing their job and doing it well,” he said. Lilly agreed. “I’m ecstatic - these guys are doing outstanding work and the public is seeing that- I’m proud of all of them,” he said. Cooper values his relationship with Milton Police. “Police sometimes are looked upon as the enemy, but they’re heroes,” he explained. “They’ve worked hard for us and they deserve respect.” Bishop and O’Dell are happy to do what many are afraid to. “This isn’t just a job - it’s a way of life,” said O’Dell. “I just want to make a difference,” added Bishop.

AARP and Generation WV Support Non-Discrimination Bill CHARLESTON, WV - Fairness West Virginia, the statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights advocacy organization, is pleased to announce that AARP has joined Generation West Virginia and over 200 other businesses, nonprofits, and religious congregations in endorsing the Employment and Housing NonDiscrimination Act (HB 2856). Currently in West Virginia, it is legal to fire or evict a person based on their sexual orientation, whether real or perceived. This legislation, which is under consideration by the Energy, Industry & Labor/ Economic Develop-

ment & Small Business Committee in the House of Delegates, would add age or sexual orientation to the Human Rights Act that already includes race, creed, disability, and sex. "On behalf of thousands of 50plus West Virginians, AARP supports House Bill 2856." Gaylene Miller, WV State Director for AARP, said in a statement to Fairness WV. “As an employer, AARP is firmly committed to equal employment opportunity. As an advocacy organization engaging in public policy, AARP believes laws should prohibit discriminatory conduct, and we urge West Virginia to become more inclusive

by adopting the proposed measure.” Dr. Coy Flowers, Fairness West Virginia Board President commented on the multigenerational support for the legislation. “Often LGBT rights are viewed as a generational issue; however, the support from both the AARP and Generation WV indicate that fairness and equality for all West Virginians is an intrinsic value of our state.” Along with AARP, Generation West Virginia also publicly endorses House Bill 2856. Generation WV is the statewide network of young talent organizations, representing the current and fu-

ture generation of young leaders who want to contribute to our state’s present and future success with energy, ideas, collaboration, and most importantly action. “Generation WV is committed to retaining, attracting, and advancing young talent for all 21 to 45 year olds without discrimination.” said RB Seem, President of Generation WV. “We support this act which will add sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of categories already protected under WV law prohibiting discrimination in the workplace. Therefore, employers will base hiring and firing decisions solely on a person’s merit and ability –

CMHS Track Team begins 2013 Track & Field Season SUBMITTED STORY and PHOTOS by Jim Parsons Cabell Midland boys started the 2013 track and field season right on course, capturing 1st place at the Carlos Akers / Doc Hale Memorial Invitational held on the Chris Parsons Track at Ona, WV. Jacob Burcham, Midland's nationally known distance runner, started his final high school season with a record setting win in the 8 lap 3200 meters. His victory was in question during the 1st 6 laps as Matt Brafford of George Washington High matched him stride for stride. But as in some of his previous races, Burcham shifted into overdrive at the beginning of lap #7 and left Brafford running by himself. Burcham's record setting time of 9:27.89 beat the old record of 9:36.10 (set last year by Burcham's teammate, Tyler Salmons, now running for Marshall University) by 10.12 seconds. Brafford earned runner-up honors with a time of 9:38.01. The outstanding upset of the meet was Dylan Rich of Buffalo High edging Burcham in the

800 meters by less than 1 second, Rich, 1:55.99, Burcham 1:56.87. Rich's time also broke the track record set last year by Burcham (1:56.19). Burcham also captured 1st place in the 1600 meters (4:23.82) and was on the winning 4X400 relay team of Brian Lawhon, Jacob Burcham, Mason Dino and Daniel Jarrell. In other events, Midland's Mason Dino won the 400 meters edging teammate Brian Lawhon by less than half a second. Dino, 52.22, Lawhon, 52.59. Midland's Nate Moore edged teammate Niles Dailey in the 110 high hurdles by less than a quarter of a second, Moore, 15:38, Dailey, 15:62. But Dailey turned the tables on Moore winning the 300 meters hurdles with a time of 41:51 to Moore's 42:36, less than 3/4 of a second. In the girls division, Cabell Midland finished in 3rd place. Midland's only 1st place finish was Sierra Grose capturing 1st place in the high jump with a leap of 4 feet, 8 inches. Top 6 team finishers (20 teams competed):

Boys Division: 1. Cabell Midland, 124 points 2. Point Pleasant, 78 3. Winfield, 71 4. George Washington, 55 5. Poca, 53 6. Huntington, 50 Girls Division: 1. Winfield, 156 2. Hurricane, 118 3. Cabell Midland, 78 4. Huntington, 72 5. Fairview, 42 6. Scott, 23 For complete results, go to

Note: A new name has been added to the Carlos Akers Memorial Invitational Meet with the passing last year of Richard "Doc" Hale who started every meet at Midland since the school's opening in 1994. Doc was 80 years old and was a very good friend of mine as well as many others. He is sadly missed - Jim Parsons.
