MILTON - Years pass, people grow old and memories fade. One thing remains: love. True friendship never dies. True brotherhood carries a man through life. Inside the Milton McDonalds, more than biscuits and coffee are served. During the past five years, Dave Wallace, George Shy, Ron Toney, Fred Smith, Frank Mann, Jack Black, Dave Walton, Robert "Bob" Ball and Jimmy Smith have met under its familiar yellow arches. It's a way to begin the day with fellow veterans, talk about life and keep friendships alive. Almost every morning, the group meets. It's not hard to spot them.

Friends for life - Dave Wallace, George Shy, Ron Toney, Fred Smith, Frank Mann, Jimmy Smith, Dave Walton, Jack Black, and Robert "Bob" Ball enjoy another morning breakfast together at the Milton McDonalds. Pictured is Wednesday's crowd. Photo by Justin Waybright Laughter echoes throughout the restaurant. Various medals and pins shine atop VFW and

military hats. At a table, men sip on hot coffee, flip through the local news-

paper and share stories from their past. "We're not the norm," Wallace explained. "A lot of veterans don't like to be around anyone." The Milton VFW Quartermaster continued, "Talk about a lifechanging experience - if you ever really realize fear - you look at life differently." These veterans walked through gunfire, saw bombs exploding, suffered wounds and watched their fellow soldiers die. They faced life-and-death-fear and lived to tell about it. Sadly, they were not often given a warm welcome upon returning home. It's these common bonds that draw them together. "It's a brotherhood you can feel in your heart," said Toney.

Huntington Housing authority receives grant HUNTINGTON, WV - The Huntington Housing Authority has received a $1.03 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for its voucher program for the homeless. Vickie Lester, deputy director of the Huntington Housing Authority, said the program has been funded through federal grants since 1999 and helps individuals with mental illness or who are re-

ceiving treatment for substance abuse. This year, 199 people are receiving vouchers, and Lester said they try to increase that number by one or two a year. She said the need far outweighs the help that is available. People accepted in the program can use their voucher at a certain housing complex or find a place to live on their own. The grant was the second

largest of 29 such awards in the state, with the CharlestonKanawha Housing Authority receiving $1.619 million. The Housing Authority of Point Pleasant received $173,219, and the Housing Authority of the City of St. Albans received $98,238. In all, $7.8 million was allocated to public housing authorities across the state. The grants are provided through HUD's Capital Fund Program.

WeeklyDevotional By Mary Jane “SCHOOL DAYS, SCHOOL DAYS” Thought for the week: And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thane house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. Deuteronomy 11-19 (KJV) Cabell county schools started August 8th this year - seems schools start earlier and earlier each year. Remember, when it never started till after Labor Day, early September, and you had enjoyed at least 3 full months away from school and was anxious to return? To be with friends, you had not seen all summer season, to meet and make new friends, to have the rest of your lifetime. School is described in Webster as a place of instruction; a body of pupils. When I went to elementary school, we had primary thru 6th grade, with two rooms and approximately 30 students total - everyone knew one another, where they lived, and how they lived.

Today it’s called pre-k thru 6; some schools have an enrollment of 730 students in elementary grades. Year 2009 Cabell-Midland High School had a total enrollment of 1,883 students. The 2012 graduating class had 401 students. How can you know all your classmates with this many students? Consolidation of schools may not be the future answer. When I attended, it was good to have a rival school spirit, against other schools, especially any type sports games. Now they are discussing all year round school. How is this going to affect the two parent working situation? School three weeks and off three weeks, guess I sound out of the loop, and I know future plans have been proven to work better in other states. I just think of the individual child as a student, a person, and how they are taught today compared to yesterdays. Are we pushing them ahead to adulthood too soon? Could this be causing loss of security, trust in parents, and leaning on drugs for

The Cabell Standard stability? Proverbs 4:13 - Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go; keep her; for she is thy life. We are in the informative computer age, in more ways than one. The Droid, the Internet, Iphone, Ipad, Ipod, Bluetooth, Skype, Robotics, Kindle, etc. Libraries may become obsolete; your car will be programmed to drive itself to destination, while you read your Kindle, and Skype your children. Each household will have a robot to do menial jobs. More obesity, more exercise clinics, call the Dr. on computer, he will diagnose it, then, go to a facility, laser out the diseased part and replace it with a man-made part. Be on your way the next day - called fast repair. We may live longer and faster but with less feeling. We will be the robot. Daniel 12: 4 - But thou Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. God will allow you to do things by your own knowledge and strength, only to make you aware that all your efforts are not sufficient to make it through this life without His divine influence and guidance --- Wilson Khashane Msendevu - quote. Prayer: Our Father in Heaven, give us the instruction to do thy will in all things. Amen.

The Cabell Standard FORGET FROM PAGE 1 married 21-year-old in a foreign country. He remembers firing 24pound mortar shells at enemy soldiers. Most of all, he remembers what it was like to fight for his country and his life. “I got drafted in 1951 and spent the winter there,” Dillon said. “Me and my wife had just gotten married.” The 84-year-old recalled the day he left her to serve his country. “It wasn’t easy,” he said. “I caught a train in Huntington at about 3 a.m.” Dillon continued, “When you leave, you don’t know if you’re coming back.” The young soldier finished his training in Kentucky and left for the war in Korea. The fear of the unknown quickly became a reality for the newlywed. On the way to Korea, a storm hit the Pacific Ocean where Dillon and other fellow soldiers were. “We were just kids, and I was scared,” he said. “Water came over the sides and we had to close all the port holes.” But Dillon’s unit made it to shore. The next 20 months would prove to be even scarier for the soldier. “We moved to some rough spots like Heart Break Ridge and the Punch Bowl,” he said. “I protected the line with a 4.2 mortar gun.” Dillon continued, “We fired it 24-hours-a-day.” The sound of its blasts was eardrum-shattering. Yet, for the soldier and his unit, it soon became second nature. The weapon itself was dangerous. At any moment, a misfire could spell inevitable

tragedy for Dillon and his unit. At any moment, enemy soldiers could have infiltrated the men and ambushed them. But they didn’t. Dillon suffered no injuries. However, he watched fellow soldiers being carried away on gurneys and medical transport vehicles. The war claimed the lives of more than 36,000 US soldiers. But the soldier from Milton escaped unharmed. ‘Til this day, he wonders “Why not me?” “I often wonder why I got to come back home - I was fortunate - the good Lord has a purpose and He was looking after me,” said Dillon. “I just think back to seeing people getting killed around you, and it never happens to you.” The fact he survived the war is miraculous, the veteran said. After fighting for nearly 20 months, the soldier finally arrived back to the states. A taxi cab drove him home to see his wife. “What a feeling just to get back home,” Dillon said. The two went on to raise a family. The local soldier held a variety of jobs and retired from SuperValu. Although more than 60 years have come and gone, memories and flashbacks of the war still flood Dillon’s mind. The sound of exploding mortar still rings in his ears. When asked how it makes him feel to have served his country in the Korean War, Dillon answered, “It makes you proud, but the sad part is we have these wars and kill people - I don’t believe in killing, but it was something we had to do.”

Scholarship established in honor of former Air Force Test Pilot HUNTINGTON - Sara E. Brumbaugh of Kenova, W.Va., a Marshall University Yeager Scholar, is the first recipient of the Colonel Aaron C-Dot George Scholarship, established by the Marshall University Foundation in memory of the former United States Air Force test pilot. Brumbaugh is a graduate of Spring Valley High School and is pursuing her education in biomedical science and mathematics. Col. George was an adventurous person who knew and respected (Ret.) Brig. Gen. Chuck Yeager, the first pilot to break the sound barrier and a Lincoln County, W.Va., native. As a fighter test pilot, Col. George helped push the boundaries of manned flight to improve the perform-

ance and safety of U.S. fighter pilots. “The Honors College is very grateful for the financial support that this scholarship will provide a Yeager Scholar,” said Dr. Ronald J. Bieniek, dean of the Honors

College. “It is a wonderful way of honoring the legacy of Colonel George and contributions to aviation development at the edge of possibility.” The scholarship will cover the benefits available to Yeager Scholars, which includes tuition, fees, room and board, books, foreign travel and supplies. A George Scholarship recipient will be a full-time, undergraduate student who has been named a Yeager Scholar. The Yeager Scholars are selected through a rigorous screening process.

Serious diseases such as influenza, tetanus, whooping cough, shingles, hepatitis A & B, and pneumococcal diseases can oftentimes be prevented by immunization. The United States has been able to achieve high immunization rates in children for needed vac-

cines; however, adult rates for getting needed immunizations are very low. It is estimated only 1330% of adults receive the proper immunizations. Under the Affordable Care Act, many preventive services, including recommended adult vaccines, may now be covered by patient health insurance policies without any deductibles or coinsurance. For a schedule of adult immunization recommendations from

the CDC, visit: Fruth Pharmacy provides many immunizations including flu and whooping cough. Please see a Fruth Pharmacist for more information. Fruth Pharmacy is a regional chain with 27 stores in Ohio and West Virginia. To learn more about Fruth Pharmacy, please visit

up Jack all the time," Wallace laughed. "He never beat up on me!" Black pointed out. Shy asked, "Isn't Bob the one who threw his bicycle off the bridge?" Ball smiled at the guys, "We had some fun growing up, didn't we?" It's that kind of camaraderie and friendship that draws them to McDonalds every morning. "I love the fellowship with these guys and the VFW," said

Ball. "I remember when we used to have only seven or eight members, but Dave helped in it and we average about 36 to 38, now." Toward the end of their morning session the men spoke about the new generation and how important it is for young men and women to remember the sacrifices made for their freedom. The guys agree the service they did decades ago should never be forgotten nor should the soldiers, who gave their lives - all in the name of freedom.


They are Never Forgotten Most call veterans like James “Floyd” Hughes, Robert “Bob” Ball and Winfred Dillon “Heroes.” The three men humbly agree that they are not. The veterans believe they were simply doing what they had been trained to do and serving their country. It’s often said that “War is hell.” To these men and many other Korean War veterans, it was and still is. Mental wars often ensue after the physical

battle. They may have risked their lives for others. They may have made it out alive. But this is the price they still pay. To the loved ones of those who never made it back home, a promise many veterans hold dear is found in the Bible: “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends,” states John 15:13.

continued, "It's an honor for me to associate with people like Bob Ball and Dave Wallace because I realize what they have gone through." Moments after Toney spoke, a McDonalds worker approached the men and smiled. She offered them some fresh coffee and asked about their day. Black arrived to the table and began joking with Ball. The others joined in. "Jack and Bob grew up as neighbors, and Bob would beat

Fishing: pure and simple

David Payne Sr. Column by David Payne Sr.

I was three when I fished for the first time. It was at Little Left Hand Creek in Roane County. My uncle had some hooks, a redand-white plastic bobber and some line. Why there was no rod, I don't know. You don't ponder those questions during your toddler years. But, of course, that's all we needed. There were naturally trees everywhere and a switch, which at some other time might have been lashing my backside in retribution for some offense, was

cut to serve as a pole. He turned over some rocks. Beneath them, were worms, which he crammed into an empty assorted-hook tin. He tied one end of the line to the switch. He tied a hook to the other end of the line and impaled a worm upon it. It wasn't long before the bobber was dancing about on the surface and I jerked up on the switch and brought only a half worm to the surface. I remember his instruction very clearly “don't jerk the line until the bobber goes underwater.” Eventually I did catch a fish and I have a very clear memory of that fish. It had bulging red eyes and I remember it being very white, although it was probably a rock bass and light green. I remember well my excitement at catching it and how much I wanted to eat it, but was persuaded to throw it back because it was so small. When my children were old enough to fish, I gave them rods. The kind of rods fathers usually buy their children, my daughter's was Barbie and my son's was Spiderman themed. They are so close in age (only 10 months, four days apart in age) that they took

their first fishing trip together. Simple bait fishing, with nothing but a stick, line and hook, however, was an experience my 11-year-old son had never had until recently when I had the idea to make a fishing kit based on George Washington's. It was a simple, oval shaped container with some line and hooks inside. Washington, who always had nice stuff, had his fishing kit imported from England. Me, I used a Cloverine salve can and hemp line. I did make some authentic wire hooks, but since it takes forever to for me to make them, I put modern hooks in the kit. Unlike my uncle, I didn't spend my time turning over rocks. There is a much better way to find worms in a forest, just brush away leaves with your feet and pick up the worms that are at the top of the soil eating the leaf litter. We had a half-dozen worms within a couple of minutes. There is a good description of how Americans fished back in the frontier and post-frontier days and I am somewhat ashamed that I cannot remember the title, but it was written in the 1850s, I believe, by a man who took a fishing trip with some buddies to the

Blackwater River in Tucker County. They had a fishing kit like Washington’s and cut their poles at the edge of the stream. They – and Washington as well – had two types of line, a heavy line which comprised most of the fishing line and silk line, which they used as a leader for the hook. I have yet to find silk thread anywhere, so we tied the relativelyheavy hemp cord to the hook and had much success with live bait. Usually, when we fish, he wants to jump in the water and swim. I usually let him, but this day, he was having a blast just fishing and stayed dry. We've had several fishing trips like this since. Back in the day before modern tackle, fishing was up close and personal and if you wanted to get farther out and use more line, you had to have a longer pole. I tried this, but the longer the pole was the more unwieldy it was, which is probably why when you did start seeing long poles in the mid 19th Century (at least in America), they were bamboo. I tried to find bamboo cane poles at various stores, which is what we really needed, but had no luck finding one. So, when little David and I were canoeing up the Elk

River from my parents' house and saw a grove of bamboo growing wild on a forested bank, he was practically begging me to paddle over and cut a pole for him, which I did. The couple of fishing trips, David used the bamboo pole, which was so light and easy compared to what we had been using, it was easy for me to understand why anglers flocked to them when they became affordable in the late 19th Century. Last week, little David eventually tired of fishing and we started looking at rocks along the stream bank. I found a piece of flint and showed him how stone-age folks made knives and arrowheads of it. I found a piece of sandstone that had a trilobite fossil in it and I told David about the last time I found a trilobite – I was 10 years old. David started throwing rocks in the creek again and I soon looked down and realized that the trilobite fossil was gone. It was among the rocks that David was blindly throwing and now laying at the bottom of the stream. I wonder if someday he'll tell the story of the 300-million-yearold trilobite that got away.

Outdoors Roundup The white bass is one of my favorite fish. They don't grow as large as black bass (such as largemouth), but they are very, very scrappy and good fighters. They are also good eating. Some of my most memorable fishing experiences have been fishing in a school of feeding white bass. You can literally catch a fish every other cast for hours. White bass usually stack up just below dams or at the mouths of creeks, or wherever they find someplace to gorge themselves

on shad. What you look for when you want to find white bass are gizzard shad, which make up a large part of the white-bass diet. At times, white bass feed very selectively on the shad, especially when large numbers of shad are migrating. Schools of gizzard shad are very easy to spot, often they are near enough to the surface that you can see them. You can also often see a flash of reflected sunlight off the occasional shad. I saw a reference in a book to

how the 18th Century Mountain State frontier scouts (my ancestor Adam O'Brien was one) and trappers walked with their eyes constantly scouring the ground in front of them. Back in the day, they would have looked for broken twigs, moccasin prints or other signs of an earlier human presence, but they would certainly have been looking for snakes and other dangers as well. I started doing that when I was a teenager and it's served me well over the years. It's kept me out of many yellow-jacket nests, though I've never – fingers crossed – been in a situation where I would have stepped on a venomous snake otherwise, but it could. When I was a boy, I had a severe allergy to insect stings and since I was, as it seemed at the time, constantly mowing or weed-eating something, I was always on the lookout for yellow jackets. If you keep your eyes peeled, they are easy to spot long before you are close enough to get stung. If you're cutting tall grass with a weedeater, you'll see thousands of insects flying all over the place and it might seem difficult to spot one particular insect from a distance, especially when you have

wasps, etc. congregating in the tall grass to drink dew. However, you don't need to actually be looking for yellow jackets themselves, just their pattern. While other insects rove to and fro, yellow jackets have very specific patterns. Even though there might be thousands of flying insects moving in thousands of different ways around and above the tall grass, the human brain is capable of picking out yellow jackets easily – if it knows what to look for and you listen to what the subconscious has to say. If you've ever sat and watched yellow jackets leaving a nest, they do so in a very predictable way. They typically leave the nest at the same angle (usually, a steep one) and at a predictable frequency (say, every three or four seconds – it will vary depending on how big the nest is). So when your brain looks at these thousands of flying insects flying in all sort of directions, ways and speeds, it sees that as chaos, but sees the pattern of yellow jackets leaving the nest as order within the chaos and if it recognizes that as danger, you're attention will be drawn to it.

Maybe this doesn't work for everybody, but it has certainly helped me over the years. Plastic resealable bags are a godsend for fishermen and boaters. I've been using them for years to waterproof various things while on the water. I recently had the idea to put my wallet in one while I'm on the water. I say “plastic resealable bags,” instead of the trademarked, but commonly referred to name that starts with “Zip” and ends with “loc,” upon a very specific request from the Johnson and Johnson Company. Back in 1999, I wrote a column where I mentioned freezing squirrels in a “ziploc” bag. I got a letter from “Marilyn Blood” I promise I didn't make that up – requesting that I cease using the word, but instead use the word “plastic, resealable bag.” The letter was enclosed in a Ziploc bag – I can use that word since it was one of their bags. This was in the days before newspapers were on the Internet and ours certainly wasn't. They actually had people whose job it was to scour newspapers from around the country looking for any incorrect reference to their trademark. I found it hilarious.

A Light in the World and an Unwavering Faith By Justin Waybright

ST. ALBANS - While most 24year-old college graduates seek jobs, one sought the world. Inside a local coffee shop, a young woman looks through photographs of herself taken in Nicaragua and Zimbabwe. A black bracelet with the inscription "Dios es Sufficiente," or "God is Sufficient" stretches across her wrist. Confidence, emotion and unwavering faith pour from Erin Shepherd as she recalls the year that changed her world. One year ago, the WVU graduate took a step, or rather a flight of faith. The young West Virginian, raised in a small town, embarked on a journey that would lead her to 17 countries in 11 months. Why? The answer is humbling. "I wanted to live for a purpose bigger than pleasing myself," she said. At first, the idea of travelling thousands of miles away seemed farfetched, Shepherd recalled. "I heard about World Race from a friend and thought, 'you'd have to be crazy to live in a tent, away from your family that long,'" she said. "But, then I felt God telling me to go...I didn't even argue." For months, Shepherd and

local friends, families, businesses and churches raised money to support the cause. Then, the St. Albans resident left her hometown and all she had ever known, boarded a plane and began her mission. While overseas, Shepherd and her group of 21-to-35-year-olds lived out of backpacks and tents. Luxuries were minimal. Once the group finished its mission in one town or country, it moved on to the next one. "It was exhausting to move all the time, having all our comforts stripped away and saying goodbye to the people we'd met," she said. "Sometimes I felt home was so far away that it wasn't even real." Shepherd continued, "But we were loving these people." Although she was on foreign soil and facing the unknown, the strong-willed woman never feared. "I can't remember ever feeling scared or in danger," Shepherd said. "Ultimately, I knew God was my protector and wouldn't let anything happen to me." During her journey to places like Africa, Costa Rica, Honduras, Romania and the Philippines, she and others prayed for residents, played with orphan children, taught English and helped build and repair houses and churches. Through the selfless work, Shepherd received a revelation

Love to the "least of these" - Shepherd reads to a child while overseas. Courtesy Photo about the people she was helping. "I realized people don't need to be rescued and don't need Americans to save them," she explained. "Some people in other countries with less, live more abundantly because they rely on God." One mission to India will never be erased from her mind. It was an evening when Shepherd and others prayed for a Hindu family. "They were an upper caste family, and you can lose your caste privileges for being a Christian, but this family we helped lead to Christ," she remembered. "This makes me question the American church as a whole - if it would cost you losing your job, house and family, would you still boldly proclaim the name of Christ?" Shepherd's view of the United

The mission - Erin Shepherd stands on a mountaintop in Nicaragua. Two weeks ago, the 24-year-old arrived home after completing an 11-month, 17-country journey across the world. Courtesy Photo States has changed since her journey ended two weeks ago. She is still getting re-adjusted to American lifestyles and perspectives. "It feels like a dream, and I don't think it's really hit me yet," said Shepherd. The young West Virginian has walked on pieces of land few Americans ever see. She has shown love to people who may never experience it again. Shepherd has seen the poorest of the poor, the hurting and the broken. Looking toward the sky, she reveals what she believes will save them. "People always say the world

has so many problems, but the world has one problem - it doesn't know Christ," Shepherd said. "The world has one need - that's Jesus." The young missionary hopes to continue spreading this message and offering hope to the broken. Her future plans include completing a master's degree in social work or psychology and working on the A21 Campaign, an organization geared toward rescuing and counseling victims of human trafficking.

Pumpkin Park Pond to Receive Makeover By Justin Waybright

MILTON - On an island, water cascades down rocks. A fountain shoots it into the air. Men and women say “I do.” A covered bridge stands in the background. Sounds like the description of a tropical paradise. It isn’t. It’s coming to the city soon. Last week, Pumpkin Park crew members Bill Kelley and Greg Meadows moved dirt, pumped water and placed rocks toward the island in the pond at the park. It’s the latest project for the area, and Kelley is excited to finish it before the annual Pumpkin Festival. “We want to build a waterfall on the island, put rocks on it and a spray fountain,” he said. “A foot bridge to the island is

Creating a new look - The pond at the Pumpkin Park is getting overhauled. Crews work to enhance the island with water features and eventually a foot bridge. Photo by Justin Waybright part of our long-range plan.” Last week, the crew pumped thousands of gallons of water out of the pond to build an access road to the island. Meadows unloaded rock to create

the temporary road. Kelley hopes to have this project complete before the festival, which kicks off in October.

Nick Rahall (D–WV) recently presented Tiffani Webb of Culloden with a Congressional Award Silver Medal – Congress’ highest honor for America’s youth – in recognition of her voluntary public service hours to an array of causes and organizations in the region. “Tiffany is truly an outstanding recipient of the Congressional Award’s Silver medal. Volunteering her time to serve others is a hallmark of West Virginians and certainly one great example of those upon whom our country’s future depends,” said Rahall. “Her parents, everyone in Culloden, Cabell County and our State can take pride in her achieving this national distinction.” The Congressional Award is a public private partnership created by Congress to promote and recognize achievement, initiative and service in America’s youth, ages 14-23. The program receives no federal funding, and is fully funded by charitable contributions. To earn a Congressional Award, participants set and

achieve individual goals in four program areas: voluntary public service; personal development; physical fitness; and, expedition/exploration. Among her accomplishments, Tiffany devoted over 260 cumulative voluntary public service hours, volunteered in a book drive to benefit pediatric patients, used mass media to spotlight community organizations, and attended the American Legion’s Girls State to refine her leadership skills and citizenship participation.
