New Fire Truck Lights up City

By Justin Waybright

BARBOURSVILLE – Firefighters and town leaders said farewell to Cpl. Danne Vance during the Jan. 15 council meeting. For more than 27 years, this police officer served the residents of Barboursville. Vance now serves as a Cabell County Magistrate. Saying goodbye was not easy. “Time goes by fast,” said Vance. “The officers here are like family, and I’m going to miss the camaraderie.” The Barboursville Police Department awarded its former officer a new Glock handgun, custom knife, calendar and badge for his years of service. “He’s done a really good job for us,” Barboursville Police Chief Mike Coffey said. “He’s been the face of Barboursville Police, and we’re going to miss his experience and leadership.” Barboursville Mayor Paul Turman agreed. “You’re well-respected,” said SEE OFFICER ON PAGE 4

MILTON – On Jan. 14, the fire department received more than $113,000 in grant money toward

the purchase of a new fire engine. The city now has four fire engines between its two stations and its 54 firefighters. Senators and delegates presented a packed Milton City Hall with two checks, secured through

Community Partnership Grants. Fire Chief Brent Taylor smiled. “This helps,” said Taylor. “The truck it replaced was a 1979 model that couldn’t meet requirements for pump capacity.” Senators Robert Plymale, D-

Wayne and Evan Jenkins, D-Cabell, along with Delegates Jim Morgan, D-Cabell and Kevin Craig, D-Cabell, were proud to bring funds into the city. SEE TRUCK ON PAGE 8

Bank Awards City $25,000 By Justin Waybright

MILTON – On Friday, Ohio Valley Bank gave the city a check for $25,000. For more than 15 years, this financial institution has served Milton. Its philosophy is geared toward giving back to its city and its clients, which staff members refer to as “family.” “This is one of our more successful offices; it’s in a great town that fits the niche of Ohio Vally Bank,” said Christopher Preston, the branch’s vice president. “We look for that hard-working, hometown feel. The residents embraced our customer service approach, and we were astounded at the warm welcome they gave us in 1999, when they

to give back as much to Milton as possible.”

The Cabell county resident has followed the changes and improvements in the city during the past 15 years. He is confident the money will be put to good use and further the progress of the Milton. “We know this town is going in the right direction in growth,” said Preston. “The mayor’s not highly paid or appreciated, but he’s got heart and a lot of ambition to do this.” The gesture humbled Mayor Tom Canterbury. He showed his gratitude toward the bank. “Ohio Valley Bank is a great community partner and asset to Milton,” said Canterbury. “There are some great things ahead.” The city will accomplish some SEE BANK ON PAGE 6

Legislative Update - By Tom Miller, PressNet Reporter CHARLESTON - County sheriffs from around West Virginia made it clear during the three days of legislative interim meetings here last week that they will be pressuring legislators to grant them access to the state's prescription drug tracking system. Currently only about 15 members of the West Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation and an equal number of drug task forces around the state have access to this system. This system collects information about controlled substances, doctors who prescribe these drugs, the pharmacies that dispense them and the individuals who purchase them. Last Monday, Cabell County Sheriff Tom McComas asked members of a legislative subcommittee to consider expanding that access to sheriffs of counties not covered by a drug taskforce. Rudi Raynes-Kidder, executive director of the West Virginia

Sheriffs' Association, said 20 state counties are covered by taskforces. The group would like the remaining 35 sheriffs to have access to the database. McComas, who is president of the sheriffs' association, said the group isn't asking that "every officer in the state should have access to this (information)." Meanwhile, another joint House-Senate subcommittee took up a bill to extend the current law that forbids sugary soft drinks in elementary and middle or junior high schools to high schools as well. Currently these drinks are not banned in the high schools. Jeff Johnson, the attorney for the Joint Committee on Health, told members that any decisions about fruit juices would be in the hands of the Department of Education. Richard Goff, who works in the office of child nutrition, said the policy proposed for high schools would still allow

100 percent fruit juices, milk and water. He said only one county so far hasn't eliminated the sugary soft drinks. The joint committee recommended the bill for passage along with one to erase a section of state code that allows a parent, guardian or someone else in a responsible position to seek a court ruling for the sterilization of someone declared mentally incompetent. "The Department of Corrections feels this is an archaic piece of legislation that has been on the books for a number of years and is asking that it be repealed," Johnson told the committee members. Efforts by some lawmakers who want to increase the number of county magistrates was nipped in the bud by a joint House-Senate subcommittee last Monday when the subcommittee voted 6-4 to refuse to rec-

ommend a draft bill to add five magistrates to the current number of 158. The initial intent of the proposed legislation was to give Monongalia County a fifth magistrate because of a growing population there. But the subcommittee then amended the bill to add magistrates in Berkeley, Kanawha, Raleigh and Wood counties as well. Members apparently were concerned about the cost of $80,000 per year for each new magistrate. Meanwhile, the legislative committee assigned to monitor the state's regional jail system heard from a mother last Monday who pleaded with them to take a look at excessive prison terms to ease the growing overcrowded conditions in regional jails and state prisons. Phyllis Gaspell, a 34-year administrative assistant to the president of District 17 of the United Mine Workers of Amer-

ica, asked lawmakers to study this issue as it pertains to both state prisons and regional jails. She said her son, now 40, is serving a 15-year to life sentence for delivering one punch. He was given the lengthy sentence even though he had no history of serious crimes such as murder, rape or armed robbery, she added. Gaspell said another man served a single year in a regional jail for throwing one punch that proved fatal. "I'm just asking for justice," she said. "(My son) has already served eight years for one punch." The next three-day schedule of legislative interim committee meetings will be on Feb. 10-12, immediately preceding the beginning of the 60-day regular 2013 session of the Legislature which will be starting a month later as is customary every fourth year when a governor is inaugurated.

Rahall Announces Service Academy Nominations WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Monday, January 14 U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-WV) announced his 2013 Congressional Nominations for Service Academy appointments. “It’s a great honor for our young people to attend one of the nation’s service academies,” said Rahall. “The education and leadership skills they gain not only develops fine officers to lead our armed forces, it shapes their civic and personal character for a lifetime. This year, just as in past years, I am proud to nominate these exceptional students who have demonstrated their tremendous potential to succeed academically and to serve our country.” Rahall nominations to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point are Carl Dillingham of Princeton, a senior at Princeton Senior High School; Cameron Davis of Pineville, a senior at Westside

High School; Kelsie Burns of Huntington, a senior at Huntington High School; Montana Poole of Lewisburg, a senior at Greenbrier East High School; Emily McKinney of Peterstown, a senior at James Monroe High School, Lowell Farley of Barboursville, a senior at Cabell Midland High School; and, Nathaniel Haikal of Huntington, a senior at Huntington High School. Nominated to the U.S. Air Force Academy by Rahall are Christopher Marcum of Williamson, a senior at Scott High School, whom Rahall chose as his Principal Nomination for 2013; Lauren Howell of Huntington, a student at Cabell Midland High School; Mark Filer of Bluefield, a home-schooled student who has also attended classes at Bluefield High School and Bluefield State College; Clayton Stewart of Cool Ridge, a senior at Shady Spring High School; and, Joshua Baisden

of Huntington, a senior at Cabell Midland High School. Rahall nominations to the U.S. Naval Academy are Leonard “Tyler” Lucas of Lenore, a senior at Tug Valley High School; Joshua Baisden of Huntington, a senior

at Cabell Midland High School; and, Nathaniel Haikal of Huntington, a senior at Huntington High School. A Congressional nomination is the first step in a two-step process for candidates pursuing appoint-

ment to the military academy of their choice. Candidates who are nominated by Members of Congress must then be selected for appointment by the service academy for the ensuing academic year.

County Schools Encourage Test Takers to Finish GED The current version of the GED test is set to expire at the end of 2013, along with incomplete test scores. Cabell County Schools is encouraging those who have already started the test to complete it before the end of the year so that their effort so far is not lost. “According to the GED Testing Service, more than a million adults have started but not finished the current GED test,” says BrendaTanner, Director of Career and Technical Education for Cabell County Schools. “The GED can open doors for working-age adults, leading to college, additional training, and improved employment prospects.” The GED test contains five parts that can be taken separately, but must all be passed to receive a high school credential. GED test-takers who have started the 2002 Series GED Test, but not finished and passed every section, have until the end of 2013 to do so. Otherwise, their scores will expire, and they will have to start over again with the

new 2014 GED test. “Of course, you don’t have to do this alone,” adds Tanner. “There are free Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes at our center and in our community to help you prepare. And, when you’re ready, we can administer any part of the test you need to complete.” According to the GED Testing Service, the new 2014 GED test will be based on emerging national and state standards. It will offer dual performance levels where test-takers can earn the high school equivalency credential as well as an additional endorsement that indicates career and college readiness. “The new test is expected to be much more rigorous,” says Tanner. “So, if you need to complete the GED or you’re starting from scratch, this might be a good time to take action.” For more information about the GED, you may contact the Cabell County Career Technology Center by calling (304) 528-5106.

Police Chief Mike Coffey shakes his friend's hand. Photo by Justin Waybright. Turman. “We’re proud of you, and we know you’ll do a great job as magistrate.” Council member Dick Spencer mirrored Turman’s words. “I know you’ll do well at the courthouse,” he said. Council member Paul Hockenberry said, “I appreciate what you’ve done and have enjoyed working with you.” Vance will never forget the last 27 years and the people he’s be-

friended. He recalled the day he won the election for magistrate. “It took a while for it all to settle in,” he said. “I felt joy and sadness. The end of my career had come, but this [the Barboursville Police Department] is still my home and I’ll be back.” Although the task of replacing Vance is a tough one, Coffey is ready to fill the open position to bring the police force up to 20 members strong. “We’ve started the hiring

process,” he said. “His shoes are hard to fill, but we have a new, young officer, and this new blood will make our officers better, because they will re-learn things and train him.” The police chief hopes to use the officer by July. In other news, council members applauded the jobs completed for new signs in the village and a new window in the press box of the Lions Club ball field. After a struggle and a 21-page appeal, the town secured its $12,000 rebate or “tax excise refund on fuel.” “It was due us, and I’m glad to have the $12,000 back in our budget,” said Turman. The village of Barboursville is working on a centennial celebration to honor its 200th birthday. Council members agreed to hold the festivity during the summer. “It needs some fireworks, so when we celebrate the birth of America, we can celebrate the birth of Barboursville at the same time.” The Huntington Symphonic band is scheduled to come. Council members will continue to develop the celebration during the next few months.

WeeklyDevotional By Mary Jane “’THE SHOW CHOIR” Thought for the week: Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD; and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man, so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them; they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. Psalm 127:3,4,5, (KJV). The activities I participated in while in school, could not hold a shadow to today’s! We had the glee club, which meant if you wanted to sing with a group, and wear a robe during some twice a year performance, you were it. Compare the show choirs today, from various surrounding schools, they are fierce competitors. If you have the chance to attend one, you will be served a delicious dinner, by the choir members themselves, (please leave a generous tip), then sit back and enjoy your children of today, put on a show equal to a Broadway play! These children put in many, many hours of practice. Costumes and shoes, etc. are not cheap, and parents are to be applauded for taking time, shuttling them to and from all the participations, as well as encouragement to their children. This is something each child will remember, and be remembered for. A quote from Billy Graham; A child needs both to be hugged and unhugged, the hug lets her know she is valuable, the unhug lets her know that she is viable (capable). If you’re always shoving your child away, they will cling to you for love. If you’re always holding them closer, they will cling to you for fear. Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs;22;6. We hear so much about our young people on drugs, and how they join in with the wrong group. What is their home life like, how were you brought up? Whose fault is it if your child stays out all night, or does not attend church , drinks, smokes and takes drugs? I know sometimes parents do their best, and still children go wrong. But if we bring them into this world, who do they watch and learn from, we are their first view, and we are the instructors and teachers. Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged. Colossians 3; 16. Our next generation is not as bad as we think it is, if we will support them, encourage, love and listen and guide them to the best of our ability, they will turn out alright. Teachers today have a huge job to do, give them credit where credit is due.

The Cabell Standard

DEA Honors Milton Middle School Students

Nellie Bell Back when I was little (Oh, no, I am sounding like an old, old person) my Dad drove a green van which he used for work. He worked for Mr. Phelps and helped clean out septic tanks. I think all of you know what a septic tank is or was. On the weekends, we usually would go visit my Grandpa who lived on Buzzard Creek. We lived in Culloden and would go across the hill. Across the hill meant out Sycamore Road the back way. If you don’t know the back way, ask any old person who has lived in Putnam or Cabell County for a long, long time. Anyway, we would get to the top of Sycamore Hill and Dad would turn off the motor and we would coast to the old Sycamore Grade School. We had such a good time riding in the van. My little sister would sit on my Mom’s lap and my older sister and I would stand up behind the front seats. When we started down over the hill, Dad would always say “Hang on, Peachie.” That was my older sister’s nickname. We thought we were going a hundred miles an hour and our stomach turned that turn which we all have had as we go over a hill really fast, or like on a roller coast. (Speaking of roller coasters, I will have to tell you the last time I was on a roller coaster at Geauga Lake in Ohio). My Dad named the van, Nellie Bell. It is funny what kids remember about their childhood, but Nellie Bell will always be remembered as a fun van. One day on our way to Grandma’s and over the hill and around the curve my Mom and baby sister almost fell out of the van. The passenger door flew open and my Dad grabbed my Mom by the arm and finally got her back. Just think, what a good thing seatbelts are today. Nellie Bell was a treasure to us kids but I don’t think my younger sister can remember Nellie Bell. By the way, the old Sycamore School is no longer there, but I did attend the school for a little while. My Mom and my Uncle Dorsey attended all the grades there. She and her friend Lola, went to several of the reunions several years ago. One story always leads to another, but they are for another time.

MILTON – DEA agents often see the ugly aftermath of drugs, but on Thursday they saw three young girls take a stand against this issue that accounts for more than 90 percent of all crime. Caroline, Grace and Sarah Kinder have inspired a community with a simple act. They participated in the National Family Partnership’s 27th Annual Youth Drug Prevention Campaign’s Red Ribbon Photo Contest. The Kinders decorated their home’s front door with anti-drug messages. This helped raise awareness of drug prevention, and led to a $1,000 grant for Milton Middle School. DEA agents showed up last week to present them with the

check. Moments before they did, the men shared some insight on the issue of drug prevention. “This is wonderful,” said agent John Ryan. “It’s a positive example they’re setting for their classmates.” Agent Barry Parsons agreed. He described the importance of early drug education. “It’s critical these kids get an understanding and a grasp,” said Parsons. “This will help the make right choices and set them on the right path.” The kinder girls walked into the cafeteria where hundreds of cheering students awaited them. Milton Mayor Tom Canterbury spoke to the children. His comments mirrored some made in previous months by Police Chief Gary Lilly, regarding the local war on drugs.

“Education on drugs begins at home and second: at school,” said Canterbury. “We appreciate what these girls are doing for the school and the community of Milton.” Ted and Angie Kinder have raised their daughters to know right from wrong. Both parents keep a close eye on their girls. “We always know where they’re at, who they’re with, and we try to teach them what’s right,” said Ted Kinder. “I’m proud of them.” Agent Jason McDaniel spoke to prepare the students for the inevitable future. “At one point in your life, you will have to make a decision—do I use drugs or do I stay drug free,” said McDaniel. “Choose drug free so you can live a long and healthy life.”

munity partners like Ohio Valley Bank. “It’s very important,” he said. “How often do you have a bank want to call you to give money to help?” Preston is on board with the plan to improve the quality of life in the city, to help draw people here. “We want people outside of town see what Milton can offer,” he said. This was one of the many ways this local business has strived to give back to its community. Currently, this bank is working to eliminate the head aches associated with checking

account fees. Ohio Valley Bank not only offers free checking, but pays its account holders every time they swipe their debit card. There are no monthly fees with this account. “We’re just trying to give back to help the community better afford to pay for rising gas prices and taxes,” said Preston. The bank will pay 1 percent back to customers for every purchase they make. For more information on this, other accounts and services, visit or call (304) 743-8074.

Second, it will buy a new sign at the west end of Milton, to enhance the area’s beauty and appeal. Canterbury described the significance of having strong com-

Christin’s Corner By Christin Daugherty Dear Christin, My son is 28 years old and is constantly in trouble. He has had several run-ins with the law and has been battling drug addiction for several years. He works, but is still always in need of money which I give him. I can’t bear the thought of turning him away when he needs my help. It’s not that he’s not smart, it’s not that he’s lazy, and it’s not that he is incapable of taking care of himself. But I don’t know how to make him understand that I will not always be here to bail him out and that he needs to start making a better life for himself. Any advice? Sincerely, Momma Bear Dear Momma Bear, Raising kids is tough. You work diligently to teach them the value of hard work and learning to fend for themselves. However, when they fail, you are there to pick them up and encourage them to try again. But at what point do we stop and say “Enough is enough.”? Well, I would say Momma Bear that you have reached that point with your son. Being able to not get ahead

and asking Mom for a loan is one thing. When drugs are involved it turns into something else completely. Maybe your son is dealing with both of these issues. Maybe the problem is that his addiction is the sole reason that he has to ask for help. Either way, you need to cut him off. I know that’s easier said than done. The best way for you to show him what his life would be like without your help is to stop giving it to him. Let him decide what his priorities are. And don’t be surprised if the drugs take precedence over everything else. They have a tendency to do that. So what do you do if that happens? Well, the simplest answer would be to get him some help in the form of rehab, therapy, etc. The problem with this method is that the person has to actually want to be helped. Most addicts don’t want to admit they have a problem, even when it is staring them right in the face. And most of the time, their parents are the last people they would ever want to admit that to. I know it sounds like a loselose situation, but there is hope, Momma. Talk to your son. Be as open and understanding as you

can possibly be. Try not to be judgmental or angry. Just listen. You would be amazed what people will share with you if you are understanding - even though you may not understand. An intervention may also be necessary. Being surrounded by his family and friends, all sharing their concerns for his wellbeing, may be just what he needs to realize that he has a problem. However, this does not always work for everyone. Sometimes the person you are trying to communicate with feels as though they are being attacked. So if you do decide to use this method, be sure to use your words wisely. Some people think that being a parent stops after the age of 18. But your story just goes to show that raising children is a lifetime commitment. And you’re doing great!

WV Pumpkin Festival Queen named 1st Runner-Up at Fairs & Festivals

Photo courtesy of WV Pumpkin Festival. Whitney Michelle Johnson, West Virginia Pumpkin Festival Queen for 2012, was named 1st Runner-up at West Virginia Association of Fairs and Festivals Pageant on Saturday, January 12th at the Charleston Municipal Auditorium. She was among 89 to compete.

Whitney, from Ravenswood, is the daughter of David and Polla Johnson. She is 20 years old and attends Marshall University. She is also a member of the Baltimore Ravens Cheerleading Team. Congratulations Whitney! We are proud of you!


“This is the type of cooperation we like to do and the things we like to work on,” said Plymale. Craig shared the same sentiment. The delegate shook hands with fire fighters. “Thank you for doing what you do,” he told them. Fire Marshal Tim Chastain explained to the senators and delegates the gravity of the grants and what they did for the city. “This kept us from shutting a station down,” said Chastain. “We’ve got a good department, great people and a town that helps us a lot.”

Milton Mayor Tom Canterbury agreed. “I’d put our fire department up against any in the state,” Canterbury told the state leaders. “On behalf of the city of Milton, we thank you.” After the event, Jenkins described the task to secure this money for the fire department. “To get this amount of money for this purpose – there had to be a real demonstration of need,” he explained. “It was a good team effort.” Jenkins took a moment to lay aside common misconceptions

about the work he, Morgan, Plymale and Craig do. “Most people think legislators spend time and energy voting in Charleston – this is a small part,” he said. “Most of the time, we’re working with local individuals and government leaders.” The senator continued, “We serve as a conduit from local to state, and when it comes to addressing local issues, we help solve problems.” Milton fire fighters needed a new fire truck: problem solved. Outside city hall, one awaited them.

WV Hot Dog Festival Organizers present $10,000 Check to Hoops Family Children’s Hospital Annual Huntington event has raised more than $130,000 in eight years HUNTINGTON, WV – In the eight years of organizing the West Virginia Hot Dog Festival, John Mandt Jr., owner of Stewart’s Hot Dogs, and his friends at Clear Channel Media + Entertainment in Huntington have never been more excited about presenting their contribution to the Hoops Family Children’s Hospital at Cabell Huntington Hospital. That’s because they followed up their recent $10,000 donation for 2012 with an extensive tour of the facilities that will be reconstructed, in part, because of the money they raised. Since the festival began in 2005 to benefit the pediatric oncology program at Cabell Huntington Hospital, more than $130,000 has been raised for the children’s hospital project fund, which has collected almost $12 million for the Hoops Family Children’s Hospital. “This is one of the most anticipated events in downtown Huntington and it is a day that we are proud of because of the awareness and money it raises for the Hoops Family Children’s Hospital at Cabell Huntington Hospital,” Mandt said. “The Hot Dog Festival involves so many people in our community and it brings attention to this great cause.” Each year, dozens of hot dog vendors from across the region and state come to Huntington’s Pullman Square to showcase their sauces and specialties. It is an annual event that is already set for July 27, 2013 with plans to expand even further, said Kym York-Blake, senior marketing consultant for Clear Channel Media + and the festival’s event coordinator. Clear Channel promotes and provides staffing for the event each year. “It is an honor for Clear Channel and our employees to be involved with this event,” York-Blake said. “Everyone vol-

Clear Channel Media + Entertainment includes KEE 100, TCR Country 103.3, Oldies 97.1, X106.3, 800 WVHU, FOX Sports 1230, and the new 24/7 Comedy 107.1. “We have so many wonderful donors like John Mandt and Clear Channel who have helped us get to where we are with the

Hoops Family Children’s Hospital project,” said David Graley, vice president and chief operating officer of the Cabell Huntington Hospital Foundation.

“We greatly appreciate the support from those who attend the festival and the commitment of the team of individuals that works all year to organize the

West Virginia Hot Dog Festival.” The Hoops Family Children’s Hospital is a 72-bed children’s hospital within a hospital located at Cabell Huntington Hospital, a 303-bed academic medical center in Huntington, West Virginia. Cabell Huntington is affiliated with the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine and cares for patients from more than 29 counties throughout West Virginia, eastern Kentucky and southern Ohio. The Hoops Family Children’s Hospital is a member of the Children’s Hospital Association and includes a 36bed Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a 26-bed General Pediatrics Unit and a 10-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. The facility is currently undergoing a $12 million renovation project to create the entrance and reconstruct the units for general pediatrics and pediatric intensive care. The Hoops Family Children’s Hospital is supported by Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists in neurosurgery, general surgery, neurology, infectious diseases, gastroenterology, cardiology and pediatric oncology.

The top 10 counties are: Preston (2,343),Mason (2,026),Jackson (1,759), Wood (1,608), Lewis (1,575), Upshur (1,569),Harrison(1,511),Ritchie(1,391), Monongalia (1,340) and Randolph (1,325). The Muzzleloader season total was down36percentand37percentbelow thefive-yearaverage. Archeryseasonharvestwasdown10 percent. Archery harvests are directly

correlated to hard mast crops, and the above average acorn crop was the primary factor for the lower harvest in 2012. The top 10 counties are: Preston (1,089), Kanawha (863), Raleigh (796), Randolph (791), Monongalia (769), Wyoming (765), Logan (739), Greenbrier (727), Fayette (707) and Nicholas (693). In Putnam County, hunters bagged 1,187bucks,upfrom1,121antlerless,up from 812 the year before. In Cabell County, the kills were also higher with 752 bucks (compared to 489 the year before),whiletheantlerlessharvestwas slightly down at 423 deer, compared to 414harvestedduringthe2010season. Stateturkeyharvestupfourpercent -HuntersinWestVirginiabagged1,233 turkeysduringthe2012fallseason,CurtisTaylor, DNR wildlife resources chief, said.The2012harvestwasfourpercent higher than the 1,186 birds checked in during the 2011 fall season and three percent higher than the five-year average. “Fall wild turkey harvests are highly influencedbyhunterparticipation,annualrecruitmentofyoungturkeysand hardmastconditions,”saidTaylor.“The above-averagebutscatteredacorncrop of 2012 concentrated birds in areas of

abundant mast, making those birds somewhatmoresusceptibletoharvest, especially in our non-traditional, fall huntingcounties.” Top counties for 2012 were Greenbrier(139),Nicholas(98),Randolph(91), Monroe (89) and Summers (71). The traditionalfallhuntingcounties,including Preston County, the Eastern Panhandleandthemountainregionsofthe state, accounted for 56 percent of the totalfallkill,whichwasalmostidentical tolastyear.Interestingly,thesesametraditional fall counties contributed only 19percentofthetotalspringwildturkey huntingseasonharvestin2012. Black Bear harvest up 34 percent WestVirginia hunters harvested 2,683 black bears during the combined 2012 archeryandfirearmsseasons,saidColin Carpenter,BlackBearProjectleaderfor theWestVirginiaDNR.Thepreliminary harvestforthecombined2012seasons was 34 percent higher than the 2011 harvest of 2,009 bears and 12 percent higherthanthepreviousrecordharvest of 2,392 that was set in 2010.The black bear harvest of 2012 marks the fourth time in the past five years that the harvesthastopped2,000. “As predicted in the 2012 DNR Mast Survey and Hunting Outlook publica-

tion, mast conditions had a tremendous influence on the distribution of thisyear’s bearharvest,”saidCarpenter. “Thestatewideoakmastindexfor2012 was much higher than in 2011 but the distribution was spotty.This fact, combined with two additional weeks of archeryhunting,allowedarcherstolocate bears effectively and led to an increasedarcheryharvest.” Abundantoakmastkeepsbearsactive into the winter and makes these bearsvulnerabletoharvestduringconcurrentbuck-gunandbearseasonsand thetraditionalDecemberfirearmsseason. Favorable mast conditions, combined with multiple counties open during September, led to a large increaseinthefirearmsharvest.”Hunters took746bearsduringthe2012archery season.ThetopfivecountieswereWebster (71), Nicholas (67), Randolph (57), Fayette (55) and Preston (51). Firearms hunters harvested 1,937 bears during 2012. Hunters took 681 bears in September, 266 during the concurrent buck/bear season and 990 during the traditional December season. The top five counties were Pocahontas (183), Pendleton(179),Randolph(163),Webster(151)andGreenbrier(148).
