TEAYS VALLEY – Putnam County-based MCP Enterprises LLC has quickly grown to be an industry leader in the building construction business. Locally, the turnkey building construction company has a number of projects in the works, including the construction of a steel frame building for the Hurricane Gas. Co. “MCP is a West Virginia company. We want West Virginia companies to support us and do business with us, just as we do with them,” said Jamison Humphrey, who founded the company with his wife, Jennifer, in 2007 in the Beckley

The company has also started to do a great deal of work for local government agencies throughout West Virginia, including the Putnam SEE COMPANY ON PAGE 12

Early voting to be offered at County Field Office in Ona By Jack Bailey

HUNTINGTON – The Cabell County Commission has authorized early voting for the November general election to take place at the Cabell County Sheriff's Field Office in Ona. The Commission approved the use of the field office as an early voting location at its Aug. 9 meeting on a unanimous vote. Previously, early voting took place only at the courthouse in Huntington. “This is something that will be very beneficial to the voters in eastern Cabell County,” said Cabell County Commis-

Cabell County EMS Director Gordon Merry said that he was excited to see the project take the next step forward, and that he hopes ground can be broken on the new station as soon as possible following the Sept. 13 meeting. He said that depending on weather conditions once ground is broken on the station it could be completed in less than a year. In other news at the Aug. 9 meeting, commissioners es-

Now when groups apply to receive such funds from the Commission they will be asked to also submit certain required paperwork before their request will be considered. The new guidelines also require groups receiving funds to submit paperwork showing how the funds were spent. “We are getting so many re-

quests right now that it is a must that we know how they are spending this money,” Cartmill said. Commissioners also approved $10,000 from Hotel Occupancy Tax Funds for the Huntington Symphony Orchestra. Also at the Aug. 9 meeting, commissioners approved the employment of Brooke Armstrong as a part-time clerk in the Circuit Clerk's Office, and approved the employment of Ashley Nicole Atteberry as a full-time telecommunicator.

Alfred Dorn said “A poet should always have one foot in the air!” which brings me to the topic I am going to be writing about for the next few columns - Figurative Language. A poet that employs the use of simile, metaphor, allusion, metonymy, personification, hyperbole, symbolism, allegory, paradox, imagery, etc. is a real treat to read. Some poets naturally perceive the world around them in a unique manner, and have the ability to translate their perceptions into figurative language. While for other writers this is a learning experience, and if you are willing to work at it you will learn. For the next several columns I will be briefly describing some figures of speech which can enrich both your reading and writing experience. A Simile is an explicit comparison between two things, which are not alike by using words such as like, as, similar to, seems, resembles or than. Here are some examples.

Two Score Years (This was written by my son in 2009) Two score years in haste passed by, The race, the goal, approaches nigh. Friends whose faces are in memory young, Lined now by lessons which time has sprung, Serve as mirrors to denial’s eye. Wisdom counsels joy in life, Focusing not on times of strife. Petty pursuits, with ardent desire, Chased ‘til exalted aims are mired, And lonely bitterness runs rife. I, too, have walked the foolish way, Flouting prudence to my dismay. Still, a life with fervent joy and pain, And two score more years may yet remain, Thus I chose to grasp the day. Ken Barrett (Hurricane,WV) *** What is Faith? Faith, a word so misunderstood by this corrupt world

What is the hidden meaning behind this befuddling noun? Faith is believing whole-heartedly in something without any doubts or regrets It does not resemble an item that can be purchased and carried away in a plastic bag only to eventually be disregarded by its owner for its worthless value When pain and devastation creep into our lives, why do we really pour out our souls to God? As humans we need a divine being to believe in Someone to cast out all the junk of the world that tries to consume us For we are not of the world We just have to endure living in this bottomless abyss While attempting to keep our souls pure and free of sin Even though scripture reveals God's love endures forever, We, the helpless sheep, must possess the faith that God is our shepherd And hopefully in time all the sheep will return to the secure pasture Brooke Hager, Cross Lanes,WV

GLASS FROM PAGE 1 ums world-wide as a significant design movement. Yet in glass collecting circles, the glass design knowledge base has been stalled in the “depression era” that became wildly popular in the mid1960’s and early 1970’s. So time has come to move the glass knowledge base forward and build a wider appreciation for glass made in the 1945 to 1970 era. Hence the goal of this event is to network, share and work collaboratively with individuals and clubs to craft a movement that studies and chronicles the American made glass of the mid-century period. Glass produced after World War II dramatically changed in style, use and design and was made by such companies as Blenko, Canton Casual, Fenton Mid-Century Modern, Morgantown, Smith and Viking. Beautiful one-of-akind signed designer glass was also made in the post-war period and will be considered in the week-end discussions. The symposium, for registered attendees, begins Thursday evening September 27, 2012 with an open house at the museum. It continues on Friday with presentations and table exhibits which will compete for prizes. Registration for the two and a half day event including three meals is just $76 for MAG member and $84 for others. The public is invited to the Friday evening auction to which symposium participants may consign up to three pieces. The auctioneer, well known Blenko collector Rock Wilson, will provide an additional number of pieces to guarantee 100 lots of glass. MAG will retain 20% of all hammer prices with no other commissions. The public is also invited to a show and sale on Saturday with free admission from 10am to 3pm with a charge of $5 for early admission from 8am to 10am. From 11am until noon there will be free glass identification with a written report, no appraisals, for up to four pieces of glass per person. For further information or to register contact the mu-

Velma’s View

Gathering the Harvest Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time; Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:6,7 Have you ever thought about age? How quickly it comes and goes. If you meditate about your past, soon you will see the years have flown by, as well as the time has changed in how we live our lives today. I think we take so much for granted, such as our utilities when they are suddenly cut off. Recently when high winds and rain damage hit our state, people scrambled like rats trying to consume a last bite. What! No air condition, no gasoline, and ice gone from the stores. Panic evolved quickly. If you have ever talked to a now elderly person who lived thru the 30’s Depression Era, you will soon understand their reason for living so frugal in today’s time. Which is good and we could learn a lot from them. Such as gardening and preserving the harvest. A dear friend of mine was so concerned that her green beans were going to waste, as no one would come to pick and can the beans – a vegetable easy to plant but not so easy to prepare for storing. No one wants to take the time to pick when you can purchase them frozen or canned and be on the table in minutes. In today’s world we want it now! So I picked and canned some beans for her to see not all was waste. There are times we need to humble ourselves, take the time to help one another and care for others first. If you do this, it is you who receives the good feeling. God cares for each of us in different ways. Cast your cares upon Him and He will see that you are taken care of also. Prayer: Thank you Heavenly Father of all our needs you supply daily - so many - too numerous to name.. Amen.

A Day in Florida (In First Grade) First grade in Florida was really fun. We were able to go outside and play every day. I remember my teacher, Mrs. McDaniel. She would read Bible stories each day before class. She also prayed with us. I was so happy in her class. I could always remember her name as that was the same name as McDaniel’s store in Culloden where I would go get candy. I also would go to Blake’s store and get candy… penny candy was one of my favorite things. Fifty cents would buy 50 pieces of candy. Anyway, Mrs. McDaniel in Florida was a nice lady. She had dark hair and spoke softly. She was a very good teacher. My sister and I usually walked to school and went home for lunch. We wanted to see our Mom. She would have lunch ready for us. As a child I didn’t know how far we walked, but it wasn’t very far. One day at lunchtime, a bad storm hit. The rain was coming down in sheets. Mrs. McDaniel tried to get us to stay and eat at school. My sister was going to stay, but being the opposite, I said “I am going home.” The teachers got together and said we could go home, but we didn’t have to come back as the storm was really bad. I remember running home in the wind and rain trying to keep up with my sister. She had longer legs than I and she was older by two years. She could run. To a small child it seemed as if it took us a long time to get home running on the sidewalks. When we finally reached home, my Mom was amazed that we left school. We told her the teachers tried to get us to stay, but we insisted on coming home. We took a hot shower and were free the rest of the day. Life was good!

Maybe some other names, please?

Column by David Payne Sr.

This has been the first summer boating season since the city of Nitro opened its Robert C. Byrd Boat Launch. The access point takes some of the pressure from the boat launch in Raymond City and gives boaters good access to the Kanawha and Coal rivers. It's also a great lemons-tolemonade story, of converting a polluted waste space into a place of recreation. However, I'm just going to come right out and say it: it's

high time we stop naming stuff after Robert C. Byrd. Seriously, can we just please stop naming things after Robert C. Byrd already? I remember sitting in the newsroom of a daily newspaper during the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The news reports spoke of fighting around the Saddam Hussein International Airport – The Saddam Hussein This and The Saddam Hussein That. The sports editor turned to me and said “Saddam still doesn't have half the stuff named after him that Robert C. Byrd has.” Who knows how many various Robert C. Byrd things there are in this state – despite the fact that his first political office was exalted cyclops of his local KKK or the battle he fought against Civil Rights in Congress during the 1960s. There was this perception that things might fare a little better for your project if you named it “Robert C. Byrd.” I reported on North Bend Lake during the several years it took to construct it. One interesting thing I remember with North Bend Lake is that it spent sev-

eral years without an official name and there was an “understanding” that it would get a Congressionally-recognized name if folks wanted to call it Robert C. Byrd Lake and Dam – despite the fact there was already a Robert C. Byrd dam on the Ohio River. It was so long without a name, as I remember that the city of Harrisville voted to name it. I can't remember the name they chose, but nobody liked it. Everybody called it North Bend Lake and I called it North Bend Lake in my stories and columns. The name stuck. Schoolwise, there are more than 30 schools or school buildings named Robert C. Byrd. Even my alma mater, AldersonBroaddus College, named a building Robert C. Byrd. When you start counting college halls named for Byrd's wife, you are well over three dozen places. He has so much stuff named after him that we've run out of different places to name Robert C. Byrd, unless we change the name of Beckley to Robert C. Byrdingrad. Two objects crossing the Ohio River are named Robert C. Byrd – the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam near Point

Pleasant and the Robert C. Byrd Bridge crossing the Ohio River at Huntington – not to be confused with the Robert C. Byrd Bridge in Ohio County. If I said I was going to the Robert C. Byrd Community Center, would you know where I was? Probably not. There are two of them. There is a Robert C. Byrd Community Center in Marion County. There is another Robert C. Byrd Community Center in Pendleton County. What about the Robert C. Byrd United States Courthouse and Federal Building? I could be talking about the Robert C. Byrd United States Courthouse and Federal Building in Beckley – or maybe the Robert C. Byrd United States Courthouse and Federal Building in Charleston. There's two Robert C. Byrd Clinics, but the one in Huntington bears the name “VA Addition,” so at least you might be able to tell them apart. How about we name something after someone who is – and this might be hard for some folks to imagine – somebody who is not Robert C. Byrd. The idea behind naming

things for people is that you ensure those people are not forgotten. You drive down the Jennings Randolph Highway, see the sign and maybe you'll want to learn something about who Jennings Randolph was. What we do instead in West Virginia is use the naming of things to create a cult of personality. It used to be if you named something “The Robert C. Byrd” whatever, you had a better chance of getting some money in the future. Now that he is dead, those days are over. How about we find somebody else to name projects for? How about the J.H. Marcum Boat Launch for our next boat ramp? Almost nobody knows who J.H. Marcum was. He was West Virginia's Fish and Game Warden who basically created what is now known as the DNR. Or what about Wayne Bailey who resurrected the West Virginia turkey from the brink of extirpation. It's hard to remember anybody when you only take the time to remember one man.

New Cabela’s Store in Charleston opens to the Public

Trout stocking: Trout Stocking: Aug. 7, Jennings Randolph and Tygart tailwaters. Beech Fork: Reservoir water level is at summer pool. Anglers should call the Beech Fork Corps of Engineers office at (304) 5254831 for more information. Bass fishing may be slowing now with hot day time temperatures. Try fishing early in the morning or near dusk to beat the heat, channel catfish will be actively feeding during this time as well. Hybrid striped bass and white bass can be caught using white lures. East Lynn: The reservoir water level is at summer pool. For more information call the Corps of Engineers recorded message at (304) 849-9861. Bass will be holding near logs, stumps and fish attracting brush piles. Musky will be found near brush piles and fallen trees. Try crappie fishing around standing timber or trees that have fallen into the water. A few walleye have been caught in the lake and tailwater. Stephens Lake: The water is very clear. To improve the odds of catching fish, use light line, cast far, and reduce noise, fish quietly and carefully. Anglers fishing at dawn, dusk and into the night are finding greater success due to limited boat traffic and cooler conditions. These anglers are using mostly surface lures like jitterbugs, buzz baits and prop baits for success. Bass are also being caught using wacky rigged worms in various colors at various depths. Catfish have been recently caught using chicken livers, worms and prepared dip baits. Lower Ohio and Kanawha Rivers: Stillwater fishing should be excellent. Jigs with minnows could provide some excellent catches of sauger, white bass, hybrid striped bass and freshwater drum. If artificial baits are your preference white and chartreuse are good colors to try. Blue, flathead and channel catfish activity is picking up.

MICKY ANNE NEWMAN (BISIN) Micky Anne Newman (Bisin) was born with the sunrise on Monday morning January 23, 1950. After a difficult battle with cancer, and in the company of her loved ones, she passed onto the Everlasting Kingdom by way of a sun-drenched puffy cloud Sunday afternoon, July 29th. Annie was full of life and laughter. She was member of the Order of The Eastern Star. She held a degree in “clowning” and was always spreading cheer and the wisdom of the Lord. She loved art and cinema and sunsets on the beach. “Nesting” was her hobby, and she also liked to paint and sing. She was considerably well read and loved books, spending 17 years as a Librarian. Her zeal for knowledge made her curious about anything anyone else was interested in. She loved research and was a self- described “sponge”. She so loved children and young people alike, and followed through for so many while working for Save The Children. In each community she ever lived, through the many bible groups

and outreach ministries she took part in, she faithfully served to spread the word of the Lord Jesus Christ, whom she held above all others. She found her own peace within the gospel and firmly gripped the Lord’s hand as she left this life behind. She is survived by her daughter Jill Clark, mother Margaritte Hulley, sister Vivian Sue Atkinson and family, sister-in-law Christine Newman, and devoted husband Patrick Bisin. A memorial service was held in her honor on Thursday August 2 at the Cornerstone Church in St. Petersburg, Florida. As her final act of selfless giving, she graciously offered her body to further the important research of the aggressive cancer that took her life. Her remains will finally be interred at Skyway Memorial Gardens in Palmetto, Florida beside her father Burwell Edward Newman.
