HUNTINGTON - Unity. The word is defined as “the quality or state of being one.” It clothes the eight officers of Milton, the 18 officers of Barboursville and the 106 officers of Huntington. Combine this number with the 42 deputies of the Cabell County Sheriff’s Department for a 174-member-force. From responding to vehicle accidents to assisting in structure fires and felony arrests, these four law enforcement agencies work as one. Last week, Cabell Sheriff Tom McComas, Milton Police Chief Chuck Zerkle, Barboursville Police Chief Mike Coffey and Huntington Police Chief Skip Holbrook shook hands, patted each other on the back and spoke to one another about their jobs, families and life. The four men collectively share 119 years of law enforcement ex-

He began his career in the early 80s, when Zerkle, Coffey

and Holbrook did. “We’re in a unique position, because we all started around the same time,” said McComas. “We don’t have to impress each other.” The law enforcement veteran continued, “All three are not ‘9-

to-5’ guys - they want to come out, because it gives us comfort when we’re there and gives the pubic comfort.” The friendships among the four men have forged a bond like no other. “That’s the cement that holds everything together,” said McComas. Coffey, the leader of Barboursville’s police department agrees. “It’s a brotherhood,” the Army veteran said. “Our unity is strong and we have good working relationships.” Barboursville currently employs a mutual aid agreement with the county sheriff’s department. This allows officers to act as deputies when needed. “In the past eight years, we’ve become closer with the sheriff’s department,” Coffey said. “We back up each other on a lot of calls.” Within minutes of the BarUNITY ON PAGE 7

Marshall University Forensic Science Graduate Program ranks number one in the nation on national assessment test scores HUNTINGTON, WV - The Marshall University Forensic Science Graduate Program once again is ranked number one in the country for its students receiving the highest overall scores on the Forensic Science Assessment Test, a qualifying test offered each year by the American Board of Criminalistics. In addition, a Marshall student received the highest test score from among 179 students from 15 other forensic science programs that participated in the test. Of the top 25 highest test scores ranked, 11 were students from the Marshall Forensic Science Grad-

uate Program. Dr. Pamela Staton, program coordinator, said the test scores are evidence of the high quality education the program provides. “The quality of an academic program can be measured by a program’s achievement of national accreditation and how well its students perform on national board examinations,” she said. “The Forensic Science Graduate Program at Marshall University has achieved both of these honorable distinctions. This translates to high quality forensic science services to law enforcement, the legal profession, and

the public as graduates of this program become forensic scientists in the field.” Dr. Terry W. Fenger, director of the forensic science graduate program, said the test is useful for assessing the program’s strengths and demonstrating to prospective students and the general public its ability to meet national standards. “The results demonstrate not only the quality of the program and its students, but the dedication of its full-time faculty and the many adjunct faculty members,” Fenger said. “The program greatly benefits from the input of law en-

The students who participated in this examination, which was administered in Spring 2013, are now graduates of Marshall’s nationally recognized Forensic Science Program. They demonstrated their knowledge in disciplines including forensic biology, controlled substances,

trace analysis, toxicology, latent prints, questioned documents, fire debris and firearms/tool marks. The test is offered to students in their last semester of an academic forensic science program. While seeking their first jobs, recent college graduates may use their test results to demonstrate their knowledge across a broad range of forensic science disciplines.

WeeklyDevotional By Mary Jane “LEADER OF THE PEOPLE” Thought for the week: Where no counsel is, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety. Proverbs 11:14 (KJV) The President of the US, The Prime Minister of the UK, The Chancellor of Germany - God’s intention is for someone to be appointed leadership of the people, for direction and guidance, for every nation needs control. History was made again this week by the birth of a future King to England, since 524 we can read of the royal line of succession, which becomes confusing with so many Henrys, James, Victorias, Williams, and Georges - but the royal names traditionally must carry on. This young baby has no idea what twists and turns lay before him in his life. But God does. He sends who He wants to be kings and leaders, just as you were born into your family at the right timeframe, place, year and nationality.

We all live our designated lifespan, whether it is good or bad, what you make of it is your choice. Your decisions determine how you want to live life. In most cases…not all, your body may have been born afflicted with bad health; you can become stricken with an illness - accidents happen or heartbroken problems that affect your mind and thinking. But, I think God sends who, at what time, into his kingdom to do the jobs He sees need done. You may not obey His calling therefore you are the one whose mind and soul becomes confused and unhappy in life. Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of ready mind. Neither as beings, lords over God’s heritage, but being examples to the flock. 1 Peter 5: 2-3 We all can be Kings in God’s work, when He speaks to your heart for example when He is saying you should visit someone

The Cabell Standard in the hospital - and you obey, that is doing His will! In turn, this person may think someone cares, making a difference in their life. Making a phone call to someone or just being kind to others – actions speak. We all do not have to hold an official title to change the world - we just need to stand up for our honest, true Christian beliefs daily. It is in the shelter of each other that the people live. Irish Proverb Men exist for the sake of one another, teach them then, or bear with them. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. Listen and trust in God for His guidance to see you thru this life. No matter if you are the President to a multimillion dollar company or feel as if you are a lowly misfit in His creation. He has a use for you or you would not exist here today. Educate and inform the whole mass of people, they are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty. Thomas Jefferson - 3rd U.S President. Prayer: Teach us God; guide us, for we know not what you have us do. Amen.

FORGET FROM PAGE 1 Army gear. Bombs explode and shake the dirt under his feet. Pieces of shrapnel and burning debris pierce his leg, sending soldier to the ground. Fast-forward to August 2013. A 79-year-old man sits at his John’s Creek Road home. Decades have come and gone. Memories have faded, but this soldier will never forget serving his country. Hughes’ story begins simply as many others do: with fights among his brothers. “My oldest brother used to get me and my other brother and beat us up,” he said. “I went through that, and told Mom I was going to leave.” Hughes continued, “So, I left home, quit school and joined the Army.” The determined young man registered in Huntington and went to Ashland, Kentucky to be examined. Next, he arrived at Fort Knox for training. The army soldier was then sent

to South Korea to join the 3rd Infantry in the war effort. Three months passed there. His tour was nearly complete. However, one more mission needed completed. Hughes’ unit moved to the city of Seoul. This is where tragedy struck. US forces moved directly into enemy territory. “I walked into an ambush and got wounded,” the war veteran recalled. “I got the side of my leg blown off and pieces of shrapnel through my other leg.” The grizzly scene is one that is etched in Hughes’ mind. “I got scared, but I crawled after they shot me, then a Jeep came up there and loaded us up into the helicopter,” the soldier said. “I was bleeding so much, and I passed out.” Shortly after the incident, Hughes was transported back to the states where he received treatment. The injuries sustained in combat nearly crippled him. But the Army soldier never

gave up. “Doctors told me I would always be stiff-legged, but I kept working my legs,” Hughes said. “I can bend them now a little bit, but I’m still crippled in one leg.” After recovery, the Army soldier still had a couple missions to complete. First: his brother. “After getting home from the hospital, I beat him up,” Hughes said, laughing. “He never did bother me and my other brother anymore.” After winning that war, the US soldier married and raised a family with six children. Life has brought its share of ups and downs to Hughes, but the rollercoaster ride he experienced during the Korean War is inerasable. Memories play in his mind like a DVD player. “Sometimes, I lay and cry, thinking back at what I saw when I was there in that little town,” Hughes said. “It’s been 60 years since I came out and I don’t want to go back to see it.” The war veteran recently lost much of his medals and awards in a house fire. Now, memories are all he has. “I feel good for trying to do what I could,” Hughes said. “I love the vets, I love the soldiers and I love people.” The Korean War veteran continued, “What makes me feel good is that I got to defend my country.” (Be sure to see next week’s Cabell Standard for Robert Ball’s reflection on the Korean War).

If used indoors, or in any enclosed spaces such as tents, they pose both a fire hazard and the risk of exposing occupants to toxic gases and potential asphyxiation. • Position the grill well away from siding, deck railing, and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. • Place the grill a safe distance from lawn games, play areas, and foot traffic. • Keep children and pets from the grill area: keep a 3-foot "safe zone" around the grill. • Use long-handled grilling

tools to give the chef plenty of clearance from heat and flames when cooking. • Periodically remove grease or fat buildup in trays below the grill so it cannot be ignited by a hot grill. Charcoal Grills • Buy the proper starter fluid and store out of reach of children and away from heat sources. • Never add charcoal starter fluid when coals or kindling have already been ignited, and never use any flammable or combustible liquid other than charcoal starter fluid to get the fire going. Propane Grills • Check the propane cylinder hose for leaks before using it for the first time each year. A light soap and water solution applied to the hose will reveal escaping propane quickly by releasing bubbles. • If you determined your grill has a gas leak by smell or the “soapy bubble test” and there is no flame: 1. Turn off the propane tank and grill. 2. If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again. 3. If the leak does not stop, call the fire department. • If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department. Do not attempt to move the grill. • Use only equipment bearing the mark of an independent testing laboratory. Follow manufacturers' instructions on how to set up the grill and maintain it. • Never store propane cylinders in buildings or garages. If

you store a gas grill inside during the winter, disconnect the cylinder and leave it outside. Fire Pits In recent years, there has been a new concern for the fire service - fire pits. Fire pits are known to be a great source of warmth and ambience. But with the popularity of fire pits increasing, fire safety has become even more important. There are many things you should consider while setting up and using a fire pit. • Keep away from flammable material and fluids such as gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene, and charcoal lighter fluid or vehicles while in use. • Do not use flammable fluids such as gasoline, alcohol, diesel fuel, kerosene, and charcoal lighter fluid to light or relight fires. • Exercise the same precautions you would with an open fire. • Do not allow children to use the fire pit. Keep children and pets away. • Do not wear flammable or loose-fitting clothing such as nylon. • Do not burn trash, leaves, paper, cardboard, or plywood. Avoid using soft wood such as pine or cedar that likely pop and throw sparks. Use of seasoned hardwood is suggested. • Before starting the fire, make sure that the lid will still close to extinguish the fire in case of emergency. Do not overload. • Before you light the fire, check the wind direction. • Keep a fire extinguisher or garden hose nearby. • Websites to visit for more information:

Velma’sView By Velma Kitchens Siblings Did you ever wonder how siblings raised with the same parents, raised with the same values, lived in the same house, heard the same rules and shared their lives – could all be so different? People are not all the same and no two people are alike, even brothers and sisters, but it still is a mystery to me, sort of. I think back on my own childhood and my sisters were different from me. My older sister, Retha, was always a good little girl. She was obedient and polite and I don’t think she ever, ever got in trouble. Me, on the other hand – I was constantly in trouble. I remember once my Dad planted a tree and told us not to swing on the branches. Well, I was just six years old and just tall enough to reach the branch - so I swung on it and said, “Like this?” Well, I got a spanking because my Dad thought I was being orney, and I guess I was. Once we were out playing near a creek and I threw a piece of glass and cut my sister’s head and it bled and bled. I really didn’t mean to hit her. I was really scared because I thought I was going to get another spanking, but fortunately Mom and Dad realized it was an accident and I was safe at last. I was never afraid of much when I was a child. I guess I was just a little bit of a tomboy until I got older. We lived in Maryland (which I have written about) and we played on the playground across the street from our apartment building and this mean boy kept on picking on my older sister. So I had to hit him as she would never take up for herself. I am glad to say she outgrew that. My younger sister was the baby girl, so I was just caught in the middle. I was a very independent child and never liked to be babied. Getting back on track, many siblings are alike in some respect, but think of Cain and Abel. Same Mom, same Dad, same living conditions and still Cain did not want to do right. This goes to show how we all make up our minds to do good or bad. We all can do good if we choose. If you have children who have never caused you any trouble, Praise the Lord and thank Him every day and keep on praying for them and all the wayward ones also. Brothers and sisters should be kind and considerate of each other. After all, you came from the same parents and you are an extension of them.

Summer a great time for canoeing

David Payne Sr. Column by David Payne Sr.

Last week, my son and I did a little canoeing back home on the Elk River in Dad's canoe. After I weed-eated the riverbank – which took most of the day – little David and I launched Dad's new

(to us) canoe. It's a flatbottom aluminum canoe, 17-feet long that had sat for at least a year unused. As soon as I flipped it over, thousands of ants poured out of it. The problem was, the ant's nest was in the bow of the boat, which was almost inaccessible thanks to a bulkhead. After several unsuccessful attempts to flush the ants out with a water hose, I propped up the stern of the canoe and filled the bow to the brim with water. That solved the ant problem. We went about four miles on the river. I had to stop and pull the canoe up a shoal, but I was really surprised at how fast I could paddle upriver. Much faster than a johnboat with a trolling motor. The longer a canoe is – in relation to the amount of it below the water line – the faster you can paddle it. The narrower a canoe

is, the faster it is, but the wider a canoe is, the more stable it is. Vshaped hulls are faster, but they are more difficult to turn and require deeper water than a flatbottom. I did quite a bit of canoeing as a Boy Scout. Our troop, Troop 210 (Clendenin), had enough canoes for all of us boys to ply the water. My all time favorite trip was a two day trip down the Elk River, from the Water Works in Clendenin to the public-access ramp at Mink Shoals. It's about 25 miles from Clendenin to Charleston as the crow flies, but it's quite a bit farther on a winding river and there was plenty of adventure for us boys and I even pulled up the canoe in my backyard and stopped at my house to say “hi” to my folks (my parents live on the Elk River at Elkview). Back in the day, canoeing was

the fastest way to move anywhere. The first people to cross America did so in canoes Alexander Mackenzie and the Lewis and Clark expedition both used them to traverse the continent. Lewis and Clark's expedition is well known among us Americans, but Mackenzie, a Scottish explorer, was the first to cross the continent when he traversed Canada in a canoe in 1793. Pittsburgh resident Ian Davis is on such a long-distance trip right now. He launched his 50-year-old wood-and-canvas canoe in late May on a trip down the entire length of the Ohio from Point State Park in Pittsburgh to Cairo, Ill., where the Ohio empties into the Mississippi. Last week, he was at Louisville, Ky. and was a few miles past the half-way point. The story of Davis' canoe is remarkably similar to that of the

song “Riding With Private Malone,” where a man finds and buys an old, barely-used Corvette under a tarp in a barn. He found the listing for the canoe on Craigslist – it had originally belonged to the seller's brother who had taken a trip with a friend down the Scioto River in Ohio. They wrecked the canoe, put it in the barn and were later killed in an automobile accident. It had sat in that barn since 1963. He packed about 100 pounds of food for himself and another 75 pounds for the dog, plus another 200 pounds of gear (including camping gear). That's a lot of gear and a very, very long time to be on the water. The longest trip I ever took was two days and I was worn out by the end of it. Contact David Payne at

Outdoors Roundup Research by the Mississippi State University's deer lab has found that Midwestern states have the highest average antler size throughout the natural range of the whitetail deer and that large deer do not necessarily have larger antlers. Let me say that I find it extremely cool that Mississippi State has a deer lab and wasn't it the college that comedian Jerry Clower attended? As I recall, the young Clower showed up at the school to try out for the position of “the man that runs with the football,” but got a full scholarship as tackle instead. Anyway, the deer lab, con-

cluded that northern deer generally have a greater body mass than southern deer – animals of the same species are typically larger in colder climes because larger bodies retain heat better (like the mastodons during the ice ages). The deer lab at Clower's alma mater used data submitted from various state wildlife agencies to reach their conclusions. Latitude and body size seemed to matter very little with the size of the antlers. Far more important was soil quality and land use. In a nutshell, we West Virginians have been right all along about Ohio bucks. They're bigger

because their corn-fed. Russian leader Vladimir Putin has been telling a whopper about a pike he caught during a recent fishing trip in Siberia. Putin, who makes himself out to be a modern Theodore Roosevelt, caught this pike and said it was 21 kilograms, which is about 46 pounds. Check out a picture of this fish on the Internet and see for yourself. I'm guessing it weighs a little more than 20 pounds. What's interesting is that Putin's claim has set off this war of words among pro-Kremlin and opposition bloggers – which, of itself, is interesting. Imagine if Stalin had circulated a picture of

himself with fish he claimed was twice as heavy as it actually was, folks would have been sent to the gulags for doubting the size of the fish. In honor of the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War, KA-BAR has introduced a commemorative knife of the Battle of Boulder City, the last battle of the Korean War. They actually have a lot of commemorative knives, commemorating military branches and theaters of service – designed to be given as gifts to veterans. They have the famous fixed-blade KA-BAR design of course, but also folding knives made in the U.S.A.

I thought this was a very interesting story: an Oregon man attempted to rob a gun store with – get this – a knife and a baseball bat. Derrick Mosley, 22, Beaverton Oregon, allegedly walked into Discount Gun Sales in Beaverton with a baseball bat, smashed a display case and tried to steal a firearm. The gun he tried to steal was unloaded, but the personal firearm the store manager drew was loaded. The manager ordered the man to drop the knife and the bat, which he did. He was arrested and charged with theft, robbery, unlawful possession of a firearm and criminal mischief.

Gala event to celebrate State’s Coal Mining Community Singer-songwriter John Ellison among those to be honored HUNTINGTON - Miners, community members and others connected with the state’s coal mining industry will gather at Tamarack in Beckley on Thursday, Oct. 3, for the 2013 Miners’ Celebration - a gala reception and dinner to celebrate the past, present and future of West Virginia’s coal mining enterprise. According to organizers, the purpose of the annual event is to recognize those who play a role in the success of the state’s mining enterprise. The community focus of this year’s event is McDowell County and its coal mining heritage. “Many of our graduates find employment in West Virginia’s mining industry, which depends upon thousands of individuals in a number of different roles,” said Dr. Tony Szwilski, chairman of the event planning committee and director of Marshall Univer-

sity’s Center for Environmental, Geotechnical and Applied Sciences. “Every person who works in the industry—whether they are a safety engineer, miner, environmental professional or equipment supplier—contributes to each ton of coal produced, as do countless community leaders, educators and mining families. “The mining industry owes its success to every one of them. This event is intended to honor and recognize the contributions of everyone involved and to spotlight McDowell County’s long history in mining. Last year’s celebration was a rousing success and we look forward to this year’s program being even bigger and better.” Internationally recognized musician and songwriter John Ellison, who grew up in the mining community of Landgraff in

McDowell County, will be on hand at the event to accept a special “Spirit of the Coalfields” award. A member of the 1960s group the Soul Brothers Six, Ellison is best known for writing the song “Some Kind of Wonderful”—one of the most-recorded songs in history. He is dedicating his award to the memory of his father, who worked in the mines in McDowell County. “Rocket Boys” author Homer Hickam, who received last year’s “Spirit of the Coalfields” award, will present a new award, the “Homer Hickam Collier Award,” to a working coal miner who epitomizes the spirit, dedication and skills of the mining profession. Conference organizers also will present “Because of You” awards to individuals for their significant contributions to West Virginia’s coalfields heritage in

the following categories: Community Investment, Community Involvement, Women in Mining, Safety Professional, Equipment/Technology Innovation, Professional, Environmental Management Professional, Engineering Professional and Educator of the Year. The Coal Heritage Highway Authority/National Coal Heritage Area will present the Nick Joe Rahall Award for Outstanding Achievements in Coal Heritage Preservation, the Coal Heritage Award for Excellence in the Arts, the Coal Heritage Marketing Award and the Coal Heritage Research and Documentation Award. The free reception will begin at 5 p.m. in the Tamarack atrium. Dinner and the awards ceremony, which require a ticket, will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the ballroom.

Tickets for the dinner and awards ceremony are $50/person. To purchase tickets, call 304-696-4029. For more information about the Miners’ Celebration, visit /mcc. The Miners’ Celebration is a cooperative project of the Center for Environmental, Geotechnical and Applied Sciences at Marshall University; the National Coal Heritage Area; the United Mine Workers of America; the West Virginia Coal Association; Strategic Solutions LLC; and the West Virginia Division of Energy, Office of Coalfield Community Development. Sponsors include Brickstreet Insurance, Marshall University, State Electric Supply Company and the West Virginia Division of Energy.

“It becomes a force multiplier,” he said. “It’s not unusual for the sheriff’s department and other officers or troopers to assist us.” “The public sees a seamless process,” the police veteran added. Efficient and effective: two goals Holbrook’s department strives to accomplish. To achieve them, his agency must unite as one with city, state and county authorities.

“For us to be effective, we must maintain the spirit of cooperation,” Holbrook said. The police chief is proud to stand by Coffey, McComas and Zerkle. At the end of the day, they are more than officers. They’re friends. They’re brothers behind a badge. “Beyond the fact the he’s sheriff and I’m chief, we have a history together and a law enforcement connection,” Holbrook said

about McComas. “Zerkle and I met as State Police when I first got here and Coffey is a legacy at the Huntington Police Department.” “We’re all friends,” the police chief added. Because of their teamwork, Barboursville has more efficiently served accident victims and has put a dent in shoplifting. Huntington has witnessed a reduction in violent crime.

Milton has watched its police department grow. The county has punched a hole in drug trade. To unite with the area’s law enforcement, call Milton Police Department at (304) 743-9211, Barboursville Police Department at (304) 736-5203, Huntington Police Department at (304) 6964444 and the Cabell County Sheriff’s Department at (304) 743-1594 to offer crime tips and report criminal activity.

UNITY FROM PAGE 1 boursville Police Department, Milton officers serve their city. Chief Zerkle knows there is power in unity. “We’re different entities, but we all still have one common goal,” he said. “To make the county a safer place to live.” Zerkle continued, “Cabell County has been blessed with great law enforcement that always cooperates well together when you’re in the trenches and you’re down and out, you don’t care what color uniform comes to help you - as long as they’re there to help.” The goal of serving and protecting resonates with all departments. Teamwork makes the goal achievable, and the Huntington Police Department is part of what drives it. Chief Holbrook knows what happens when law enforcement agencies are stacked together.

HUNTINGTON, WV - The Marshall University Foundation Inc. has announced a significant endowment to provide scholarships for music education students at Marshall University. The Janice Chandler Gold Scholarship was established through a gift from Dr. Stephen M. Wilks (’68) and Robin Chandler Wilks (’71), with additional contributions from friends and former students of Janice Chandler Gold. Gold is being recognized for her years of service to the musical life of the Huntington community, including her years of teaching music to students in Cabell County; training of teachers as mentors and student teaching supervisors; and as the director/conductor of numerous vocal ensembles and choral groups in the Huntington area. The annual award will be given to a full-time student majoring in music education who is in good academic standing. “Our daughter Kelly (’01) had a five-year, three-quarter tuition scholarship for her cello performance degree from Marshall and it was most appreciated,” said Robin Wilks, who received a music education degree from Marshall. “We have always been grateful for and proud of the topflight music education available at Marshall.” “I had a small scholarship my last year at Marshall, thanks to Dr. Tom Scott, and also for medical school at Emory,” Stephen Wilks said. “Both of our families are full

of educators—parents, brothers and sisters. A good educational foundation is a ‘springboard’ for opportunity. It is a privilege to be part of this process.” Nearly 200 singers from several states, all of whom were in Gold's a cappella choirs at Huntington East High School between the fall of 1958 and the spring of 1983, will present a free concert titled "Here We Come!" under Gold’s direction at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, at Huntington High School's main auditorium. As part of the event, Gold will be presented with a certificate to commemorate the scholarship. Debby Stoler, a former student of Gold’s and assistant director of development and outreach in career services at Marshall, is organizing the event. “Janice Chandler Gold is an amazing lady and a bundle of energetic talent,” Stoler said. “She has brought music to our community and enriched our lives in numerous ways over the last 50plus years. I feel so privileged to work with her and our hardworking committee to make this reunion happen. A scholarship assures that her legacy of devoted teaching of music continues long into the future.” Melanie Griffis, senior director of development at Marshall, and also a former student of Gold’s, said that the scholarship is important for many reasons. “For a student studying music education, this scholarship is important on several levels,” Griffis said. “It recognizes that student’s

achievements as a musician and future teacher. I can’t think of a better example for an aspiring music teacher than Janice Chandler Gold. She is legendary in the Cabell County and surrounding school systems for the quality of her musicianship and teaching, but also for the teachers in our region whom she has trained. On a personal level, I was one of her students at Huntington East High School. I’ve experienced her in action and to have this scholarship to give to future teachers who will know her by example and can aspire to exemplify her career is a really exciting prospect for the future of music education at Marshall.” Griffis noted that the Wilks understand the need for financial support during college. “This particular scholarship is designed to relieve much of the financial burden for the recipient, but still requires a personal financial responsibility,” she said. “Motivated by the Marshall experience of their own daughter, Kelly Wilks Maxwell, the Wilks believe it is important that the students take some ownership in the cost of their education.” “Kelly was given a scholarship at Marshall that paid for about 75 percent of her education,” Stephen Wilks said. “She worked to provide the remainder. We believe that the combination of help from her scholarship and her personal investment made her education that much more important to her.”

Nonprofit Organization Continues to Grow By Justin Waybright

HUNTINGTON - During the past 28 years, Cabell-Wayne Association of the Blind has grown in number and in size. Last week, the nonprofit organization received a 24 foot by 24 foot stage for local concerts and performances. Director Paul Slone hopes the new addition will house country, gospel and bluegrass bands and others. He also has plans to open it to the community for rental. "We have a small, portable stage, but this one will allow us to have national acts if we want," said Slone. "It allows for things we've wanted to do but were not able to do." The custom platform also opens opportunities to the members and consumers of CabellWayne Association of the Blind. To Slone, this is another way to better the life of his members and connect with the community. "We continue to strive to do things like this and offer activities that will get them to participate," he said. The organization's next event is the 11th Annual 5k Run/Walk for Sight at 9 a.m. Aug. 17 at Ritter

throughout the country to provide supplemental information on deer population densities.” Surveys will involve sighting deer along randomly selected roads by searching adjacent fields and woods with spotlights. Surveys will not involve the collection of live or dead animals and will not involve personnel entering onto private property. Spotlight surveys will be completed by mid-September. For additional information, please contact the district wildlife biologist at your local DNR district office or contact the DNR Elkins office.

African Children’s Choir Comes to State By Justin Waybright

HUNTINGTON - One voice, one smile and one hope drive a group of children from Africa to spread love around the world. The African Children’s Choir began 25 years ago with a simple song from a child. Decades later, thousands across the world have received heart-touching performances. More importantly, African children in Uganda have experienced a life-changing help from the tours. Dorothy Nabwami, children’s choir chaperone remembered when she joined the program at 9-years-old. “I loved singing for many people, and seeing them get excited and happy,” she said. The group is comprised of eight boys and eight girls from age seven to 10. The children tour across the world to perform music that saturates audiences with love and encouragement. The children who make up the choir learn the English language and change the world at a young age. “The country and the kids

A smile is worth a thousand words - The African Children’s Choir performed in St. Albans and Huntington last weekend. Courtesy Photo benefit from this,” Nabwami said. “It feels really nice, seeing children growing and learning new things.” The African Children’s Choir performed last weekend in Huntington and St. Albans.

The boys and girls wowed crowds at Fifth Avenue Baptist and River Cities Community Churches in Huntington. They also performed at St. Andrew United Methodist Church in St. Albans.

The African Children's Choir is a nonprofit humanitarian and relief organization, “dedicated to helping Africa's most vulnerable children today so they can help Africa tomorrow.” Through past performances, the program has

raised funds to complete children’s homes and provide educational resources. For more information or to donate, visit
