City of Milton purchases historic Bowles House By Jack Bailey

MILTON – The City of Milton has purchased the historic Bowles House, located at 1141 Smith Street adjacent to the existing city building. The city closed on the purchase of the white, brick two story home on July 19. The purchase price was $118,000. “This is about planning for future growth,” said Milton Mayor Tom Canterbury. “Who knows where Milton will be 10 years from now.” The two-story home is over 2,400 square feet, and most recently has been divided into two apartments -- one upstairs and one downstairs.

Canterbury said that for the time being the city will continue to rent the space as apartments. The lot that the home sits on is

approximately 10,000 square feet, and Canterbury said that in the area behind the home the city will add gravel to provide ad-

ditional parking. The house is believed to have been built in 1885, and Canterbury said that the city intends to seek to have it added to the National Register of Historic Places. If the city is successful in having the home listed on the National Register, Canterbury said that it would be eligible for grants and tax incentives. While the home will continue as apartments for the time being, in the future Canterbury said that the house could be used for a variety of things including additional office space. No plans are set in stone, but purchasing the historic home gives the city a variety of options SEE HOUSE ON PAGE 3

SBA Disaster Assistance Available to Non-Profit Organizations SUBMITTED ARTICLE CHARLESTON -- The U.S. Small Business Administration has announced that certain Private Non-Profit Organizations (PNPs) in West Virginia that do not provide critical services of a governmental nature may be eligible to apply for low interest rate disaster loans. These loans are available as a result of a Presidential disaster declaration for Public Asresulting from sistance damages caused by severe storms and wind that occurred on June 29 through July 1, 2012. PNPs located in the following counties that provide noncritical services are eligible to apply: Barbour, Boone, Braxton, Cabell, Calhoun, Clay, Doddridge, Fayette, Gilmer, Grant, Greenbrier, Hardy, Harrison, Jackson, Jefferson, Kanawha, Lewis, Lincoln, Logan, Marshall, Mason, McDowell, Mercer, Mingo, Monroe, Nicholas, Pendleton, Pleasants, Pocahontas, Preston, Putnam, Raleigh, Randolph, Ritchie, Roane, Summers, Tucker, Tyler, Upshur, Wayne, Webster, Wetzel, Wirt, Wood and Wyoming in West Virginia.

Emergency Department data show 3 Deaths related to June 29 Windstorm The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources Bureau for Public Health has completed a review of data received from hospital emergency departments (EDs) regarding the June 29 windstorm indicating 3 fatalities occurred in WV as a result of the storm and its aftermath. State Health Officer and Commissioner for Public Health Dr. Marian Swinker says, “The Bureau’s Office of Epidemiology and Prevention Services worked closely with emergency departments across West Virginia to track illness, injuries and deaths associated with the June 29 Derecho wind storm. Our evaluation of the data received from the EDs indicated burns and inhalation illness from individuals using generators in closed environments,

gastroenteritis for individuals eating spoiled foods and heatrelated illness. Further, the investigation indicated 3 deaths in West Virginia EDs were attributed to the June 29 Derecho.” Deaths occurred in Pocahontas, Webster and Randolph counties as a result of (1) carbon monoxide poisoning, (1) heat-related illness, and (1) delayed access to health care. Dr. Swinker says “West Virginia hospitals did an outstanding job capturing and reporting this much needed data to the state. Our hospitals are a tremendous asset and partner to Public Health. The data collected will help us develop prevention messages that can help save lives in the future. While not all storm-related deaths or injuries are preventable, the data serve as

a reminder for all of us to be better prepared for the next major event or disaster in West Virginia. Preparedness can begin with a simple family disaster kit as suggested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.” A family disaster kit will contain items such as drinking water, nonperishable food, flashlight, batteries, first aid kit, medications (and a list of all medications), batteryoperated radio, emergency contact information, blankets, cell phone, extra cash, personal hygiene items and a plan for one’s pets.

PSC Transportation Enforcement Division receives National Safety Award The Public Service Commission of West Virginia’s Transportation Enforcement Division was recognized for the second year in a row as the Highest Achieving Transportation Safety Enforcement Program in the United States for 2011. Governor Earl Ray Tomblin recognized the division for the achievement. The award is presented each year by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to the most productive and focused safety enforcement program for interstate and intrastate motor carriers. The Division received the same honor last year, for Fiscal Year 2010, which was the first time the award was ever received in West Virginia

“I congratulate each member of the PSC’s Transportation Enforcement Division for being nationally recognized as the highest achieving safety enforcement program in the country,” Gov. Tomblin said. “I commend their commitment to safety and appreciate their continued service to West Virginia." In 2011, PSC Transportation Enforcement Officers conducted over 32,000 vehicle safety inspections of motor vehicles operated by interstate and intrastate motor and private carriers, commercial motor vehicles and drivers. The officers also conduct routine compliance reviews. This Division performs inspections on a routine basis and at regional

road check sites throughout the State during the warmer months. During the winter months, the officers inspect vehicles at the terminal facilities of intrastate carriers. There are currently 68 officers in the Division. “The joint effort between state and federal officials creates a successful Transportation Enforcement program, and in turn, reduces fatalities and injuries on roads across West Virginia,” said Gary Edgell, Director of the PSC Transportation Enforcement Division.

Velma’s View By Velma Kitchens

My time in Lincoln County Since my story about Central Elementary School was already published, I thought I would send another. Like the first story, today is Saturday and snowy, of course, and the shoveling hasn’t begun. I was thinking about my great uncle Charlie Smith. He was my dad’s Mom’s brother. He lived off Falls Creek Road near Tornado in Kanawha County not far from Garrett’s Bend. He is a story in itself. One summer we rented a house over the hill from Uncle Charlie. The house was on stilts-cinder blocks. The house was not underpinned, no insulation, no bathroom, no running water. This was when I was in the fifth grade. That summer we cleaned up the yard as debris was everywhere. We all worked until the yard was cleaned. We then mowed the yard. It looked like a hayfield before mowing. I didn’t think we would be there very long, but I was wrong. Our neighbor was a man named Speed Martin. His wife was Edith. Speed got his name as a semi-professional baseball player. He was a pitcher. He could throw a fast ball. But as he confessed, alcohol was his downfall. He and his wife were very nice to us. Across from our driveway was a fenced-in cow pasture. Gigs Rogers would come and feed his cattle. His real name was C.A. Rogers. He was a preacher. We listened to him on the Hurricane radio station on Sunday. We listened to gospel music every Sunday. Denzil Vickers was the DJ. That year the first snow came on November 14th and the last snow was on Easter Sunday the following year. We had snow all year. I think it snowed every week that winter. I remember the fires we had in the pot belly stove and standing around it was so warm. We had to get up and be on the bus by 6:30, it was still dark. We didn’t have many snow days back then as we went to school all the time unless a blizzard was coming. Garrett’s Bend Elementary is where we went to school. Mrs. Stowers was one of the teachers as well as Mr. Thomas. A lady named Nancy was the cook. Mr. Thomas was the first teacher I had who encouraged me to write. He would give us an assignment in creative writing and I loved it. My friends would struggle, but the words just flowed from my mind to the paper. Mr. Thomas was a good teacher. The time we lived in Lincoln county was very memorable and I am glad for all the experiences I had that year. It makes me realize all the blessings I now have. I wouldn’t trade my time in Lincoln County for anything. Uncle Charlie loved to turn the calendar to March 1st. He knew that Spring was coming! (Editor’s Note: We hope that you enjoy Velma’s View and ask that you drop us a line and let us know what YOU would like Velma to write about. You may email suggestions/comments to or mail them to PO Box 186, Culloden, WV 25510).

WeeklyDevotional Milton doctor pleads guilty By Mary Jane

Black Crows Thought for the week: Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Matthew 6:26 (KJV) July is usually the month for cutting hayfields, and baling hay for feeding cattle during the coming winter. I observe this process as it takes place in the fields surrounding my home. First, machinery is used to cut the hay, and then the next machinery flips the hay over so it can dry. After a few days of drying, other machinery is used to convert the hay into huge round bales, spitting them out to be gathered onto trucks. The hay is transported into barns for storage until needed for winter’s cattle feed. The following day is a sight to behold. Huge black crows come to glean the fields of all leftover grains. “Cawwwl, cawwwl,” they call to one another, while flapping their long black wings. Flying over and dipping down, they pause to pick the golden leftovers as God provides their feast for the day. So He also does for you and for me each day. Now re-read the verse above and think about it. Why should we have a worry at all? Are we not more important to Him than the fowl of the air? We just need to trust Him, which I am sure pleases him. Our heavenly Father’s Word says it in black and white. He will take care of you. Have faith. You are created in His image. He surely will provide your needs, whatever they may be. Prayer: Our Father in Heaven, thank you this day for giving us our daily bread and for giving us life itself. Amen.

Scholarship created in honor of retiring Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine Administrator HUNTINGTON - James “Jim” J. Schneider retired from the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine in June, but his service to the school will live on through the creation of an endowed scholarship in his name. The scholarship, known as the James “Jim” J. Schneider Endowed Scholarship, will be awarded to an entering first-year student chosen by the School of Medicine scholarship committee in conjunction with the Marshall University Financial Aid office. “Jim was a steady and effective leader during the School of Medicine’s expansion to the Marshall University Medical Center in the 1990s,” said Linda Holmes, director of development and alumni affairs with the School of Medicine. “He also guided several other multi-million dollar School of Medicine building projects. The formation of this scholarship is quite fitting because of Jim’s commitment to our students for so many years.” Schneider served the School of Medicine and University Physicians & Surgeons, Inc., for 21 years, finishing his career as the senior associate dean for finance and administration and executive director, respectively. Anyone wanting to make a gift to the Schneider scholarship may contact Holmes at 304-691-1711 or

to Federal Charges STAFF REPORT MILTON – Dr. Anita Dawson, 55, of Milton, has pleaded guilty in federal court to aiding and abetting in obtaining controlled substances by misrepresentation, fraud, forgery, and subterfuge. Dawson entered her guilty pleas on Monday, July 30. Dawson admitted that from July 2006 until May 21, 2009, she wrote prescriptions for addictive pain medications to an individual identified as “E.B.” Dawson admitted she wrote a total of nearly 6,000 pills containing oxycodone and a total of more than 220 pills for the painkiller Endocet. Dawson further admitted that at the time she wrote the prescriptions for “E.B.,” she was aware that the patient was seeking pain medication for an addiction and other inappropriate reasons. Dawson and “E.B.” entered into a pain management agreement which required the patient to submit to drug tests and pill counts.

Despite the known individual’s repeated violations of the pain management agreement, Dawson admitted she continued to prescribe pain medication. “This conviction is an important victory in the fight against prescription drug abuse,” said United States Attorney Booth Goodwin. “The vast majority of physicians prescribe responsibly, but even a handful of bad doctors can flood our communities with illegal pills. Every time we put a law-breaking doctor out of business, it’s a big step toward getting this problem under control.” Dawson’s medical license was suspended by the West Virginia Board of Osteopathy in April 2010, on the same day federal and state investigators executed a search warrant at her Milton office. Following the search and the suspension of her medical license, Dawson voluntarily gave up her license permanently. Dawson faces up to four

years in prison and a $250,000 fine when she is sentenced on Oct. 29, 2012 by United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers. This case was prosecuted as part of an ongoing effort led by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of West Virginia to combat the illicit sale and misuse of prescription drugs. The U.S. Attorney’s Office, joined by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to aggressively pursuing and shutting down illegal pill trafficking, eliminating open air drug markets, and curtailing the spread of opiate painkillers in communities across the Southern District. The investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General, and the Drug Enforcement Administration, with assistance from the West Virginia State Police and the Cabell County Sheriff ’s Office.

Hospital says Doctor didn't repay Loan By Kyla Asbury - The West Virginia Record HUNTINGTON - St. Mary's Medical Center is suing a physician it loaned money to who failed to repay the loan. On May 10, 2007, Dr. Jeffrey Shook entered into a loan agreement with St. Mary's Medical Center where the hospital loaned Shook $50,000 in return for Shook's promise and agreement to pay back the full amount with interest, according to a complaint filed June 22 in Cabell Circuit Court. St. Mary's claims the terms of

the promissory note was for three years at 9.25 percent interest with monthly installments of $1,692.59 starting June 1, 2008, until paid in full. Shook breached the loan agreement and note by failing to comply with the repayment terms and conditions, according to the suit. St. Mary's claims the defendant breached his implied contract and contract in law by failing to repay the loan. Shook is liable to St. Mary's in the amount of $50,000 plus interest at the contractual rate of

9.25 percent, according to the suit. The hospital is seeking damages in the amount of $50,000 with interest at a contractual rate of 9.25 percent per annum from May 10, 2007, until the date of judgment and postjudgment interest at the statutory rate of 7 percent per annum from the date of judgment until satisfied. It is being represented by Christopher J. McCarthy. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge F. Jane Hustead.

Rock Skipping Made Easy

David Payne Sr.

Column by David Payne Sr.

Anytime I get near water - especially if there are rocks around - I feel this uncontrollable urge to pick up a rock and test out my skipping arm. Last weekend was no different, when I skipped some rocks with my nieces. I've skipped rocks in a ton of water, from the Ohio River to the Danube. I grew up on the banks of the Elk River, West Virginia's premiere river. I spent my entire childhood trying to get a rock from one side to the other, which is about 90 yards where I grew

up. I never did. I also spent quite a bit of time developing technique and trying to maximize distance and number of skips. My personal best number of skips from a single rock thrown is 31. I think everybody knows you need a flat rock for skipping. You can try to skip a rock across the ground or across concrete instead of water, but it won't skip nearly as well. When you try to skip a rock across the ground, the trailing end of the rock strikes the ground, then the stone tumbles and the front end hits. Thus, much of its inertia is wasted. When a stone hits water, the trailing edge hits first, but something different happens. The angle of the stone pushes some water downwards and the water pushes the stone upwards in equal and opposite reactions – basically the same thing that happens to an airplane wing to give it lift. When you skip a stone across water, its velocity is strong even after it hits the water and it can keep going. If you've thrown it at the right angle and have thrown it with enough speed, it can skip

Fish Report Compiled by David Payne Sr. Beech Fork: The 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 but the lake is muddy from recent storm events. 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 bush piles and fallen trees. Channel catfish and flatheads will be good throughout the day. 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: Stephens is very clear. To improve the odds of catching fish, use light line, cast far, and reduce noise, fish quietly and carefully. As mentioned previously, 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: Tailwater 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.

numerous times and each time it skips, it will lose a little of the vertical lift it had before. This same principle was used by the British for the bouncing bombs to bust German dams during World War II. Again, you want the flattest rock possible and you'll need to throw it with some spin to be stable. As you release the rock, give a little flick of the finger to make it rotate. If you've ever seen a “submarine-style” baseball pitcher, the throw is something like that. If you are right-handed, pivot on your left foot and use your legs and torso for power. You'll also want to throw it in a trajectory as flat as possible, but not so flat that it will fail to get vertical lift when it strikes the water. The perfect angle, I believe, is 20 degrees. ***** Here are a couple of nice reads from the Hemmingway family: First, “Walk on Water," Lorian Hemingway. She is the granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway and has shared her family's passion for writing, fishing and whiskey, but she eventually overcame the Hemingway demons

that drove her uncle and famous grandfather to commit suicide. She wrote this Pulitzer-Prize nominated memoir about her years of struggling with alcoholism and her ultimate redemption. However, it is still a fishing memoir and a good one. She writes about fishing as well as her father did. I try to remember to quote one of her lines, "even the fish must win sometimes," as an alternative to swearing when I lose a fish. I usually forget. Another is the "Big TwoHearted River," Ernest Hemingway. It is one of the short stories, some of which Hemingway never finished, to be released as "The Nick Adams Stories" collection. It's also one of my favorites. After being away from home for several years, Adams returns to his hometown to find it burned to the ground and not a soul in sight, so he goes fishing. This short story contains the only reference I've seen in literature of flyfishing with live bait. Contact David Payne Sr. at

Local Woman running for Governor as write-in Candidate By Jack Bailey

HUNTINGTON – Barbara Lynn Spurlock, a resident of the Westmoreland area of Huntington, is running for governor of West Virginia as a write-in candidate in the Nov. 6 General Election. Spurlock has met the requirements to be an official write-in candidate in November according to the Secretary of State's office. Her name will not appear on the ballot, but supporters will be able to write it in and the write in votes will count. The names of all official write-in candidates are posted at all appropriate precincts during early voting and on Election Day. “Being a good governor is my desire for all people of Wild and Wonderful West Virginia,” Spurlock said during a visit to the offices of The Cabell Standard. “I will call attention to the down-

Barbara Lynn Spurlock trodden residents who have been either bullied by the system or programs now in place. Namely, my goal is to see 'equal pay for equal work' for all people.” Spurlock has not run for political office before. She describes herself as an ordinary woman voter “registered

Republican, but covertly Independent, formerly Democrat.” In her campaign as a write-in for governor she is running as a member of the West Virginia Working Citizen's Party. Born in Huntington, and a long-time resident of Cabell and Wayne Counties, Spurlock is a graduate of Huntington East

High School. She went through the LPN program at the Cabell County Vo-Tech Center and worked as a nurse for several years. She is now retired. While this is her first foray into politics, Spurlock said that she had considered running for office before. “My special interest is for battered women and children, health care workers and teachers. I am against all who oppose care for the elderly, of which I am now considered,” says the 67year-old Spurlock. This year the timing seemed right for a run for office, she said. While she is entering the race late, Spurlock said that she intends to make the most of the time between now and the election in November. She said that she plans to travel throughout the state meeting with people and asking them their concerns. She has already been traveling throughout the

local area meeting with citizens, and has been as far as Pocahontas County. She said that she does not plan to do any fundraising. “I want to let people know that a concerned citizen can be heard,” she said. “That's my main thing, to be the voice for the concerned citizen.” Spurlock has a Facebook page where you can follow her and learn more about her campaign. It can found at
