MILTON - During the past 135 years, when many churches dried up and fizzled away, one local church remained on fire and thrived. The sanctuary of Milton Baptist Church has witnessed miracles. The pews have seated restored lives. The hands of broken men and women have touched an altar and received restoration. Thousands have broken the chains of addiction inside this building. Redemption and grace have abounded. Men, women and children have received a hope, joy and peace no one can rob them of. Although the leadership, property and service styles have changed during the past century, one characteristic has not: the love of serving God and the community - two aspects the founding members of Milton Baptist built the church on. “Resolved, that as the redeemed of the Lord, we do unite ourselves together in church capacity and pledge ourselves to serve God faithfully in our gener-

Changes to hit City By Justin Waybright

MILTON - Changes are on the horizon for this city. During the July 16 council meeting, members approved amendments to ordinances aimed at singlewide mobile

homes, an alleyway and signage. City leaders tackled the mobile home issue first. Many towns and cities throughout the state are home to singlewides with vinyl or aluminum underpinning. This is a sight that Milton Mayor Tom Canterbury is tired of seeing. For the past four years, Canter-

bury’s mission has been to beautify the city and make it more appealing to residents and outside businesses. With the stigmas attached to singlewides, this goal is tough to achieve, he said. So, action was taken by the council Tuesday evening. “New mobile homes must have

a permanent foundation of masonry block and be complete by 60 days of set up,” the mayor said. “Building a singlewide is no longer an option.” Tuesday concluded the first reading of the new ordinance. Councilmembers must approve SEE CHANGES ON PAGE 4

Study: 1 in 3 W.Va. homes does not have a computer By Eric Eyre - The Charleston Gazette CHARLESTON — West Virginia's push to expand highspeed Internet might be more complicated than making broadband service available by stringing copper wire or fiber on poles to people's homes. A new federal study shows slightly more than 35 percent of West Virginia households don't own a computer -- the secondlowest ranking of any state in the survey. The low computer ownership numbers help explain why many West Virginians don't sign up for high-speed Internet service, even where it's available. The study -- called "Exploring the Digital Nation" -- shows that 59 percent of West Virginia households subscribe to highspeed Internet. That's the eighthlowest Internet adoption rate among the 50 states, although West Virginia's ranking has improved from past years. "The report is clearly, in my opinion, a report on age groups and their habits as much as it is

on the subject of adoption rates," said Lee Fisher, who serves on the West Virginia Broadband Deployment Council. "So in those states where an aging population, like in West Virginia, is an issue, I don't believe you will ever have the adoption rates that people seem to shoot for until the demographic changes." Nationally, 70 percent of homes are hooked up to the Internet. "Even with our improved 'take rate' up in the 60-percent range, we are still way behind most of the country," said Dan O'Hanlon, chairman of the Broadband Deployment Council The study by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration cited several reasons why people don't sign up for Internet service: lack of interest; it's too expensive; and they don't have a computer. Mississippi had 35.5 percent of homes without computers, the lowest ownership rate in the nation, followed by West Virginia's at 35.4 percent. By contrast, 85 percent of homes have comput-

ers in Washington state, the highest percentage in the nation, according to the study. To increase computer ownership, O'Hanlon suggested the state work with nonprofit groups, such as Mission West Virginia, that provide refurbished computers to homes that don't have them. "The report actually shows us there are things the Broadband Council can do to raise our rate of broadband use in West Virginia," he said. Frontier Communications, West Virginia's largest broadband provider, has spent tens of millions of dollars in recent years to make high-speed Internet available across the state. West Virginia also received a $126.3 million grant to extend high-speed fiber to public facilities, though homes and business haven't been included in the project. The Broadband Deployment Council distributed $2 million last year for projects designed to bring wireless Internet to homes in rural communities.

The council turned down a handful of "demand promotion" projects intended to increase the number of people who subscribe to high-speed Internet. At the time, state law required the Broadband Deployment Council to award money for such projects in remote areas without Internet service. Council members said it didn't make sense to spur people to sign up for broadband if the service wasn't available. State lawmakers have since passed a bill that allows the broadband council to distribute money for projects that increase the demand for broadband anywhere in West Virginia. Fisher said state leaders must do more to promote the use of broadband technology "as an economic development tool." "Until West Virginia finds this person or group of persons to not only talk about it every day and fund it every year, I don't think West Virginia will ever be at the top of any of these surveys," said Fisher. The federal report, which ex-

amined U.S. Census data, also details how and why people go online. The report found that 34 percent of Internet users searched for jobs, while 35 percent shopped for health insurance plans. About a third of Internet users ages 25 to 44 went online for news, compared to 8 percent of users 65 and older. The report found almost all people who used the Internet at home did so with a high-speed broadband connection. In West Virginia, 3 percent of Internet users still had dial-up connections through phones -- the thirdhighest rate among the 50 states, according to the study. "The data show that Americans depend on the Internet use to engage in a wide range of activities," said Lawrence Strickling, U.S. assistant secretary of communications, in a release. "It underscores the need for us to continue our efforts to ensure all Americans have access to broadband." Reach Eric Eyre at or 304348-4869.

HAFB serves 43,300 more meals in 2013 HUNTINGTON - The Huntington Area Food Bank is working to help feed the 113,520 people at risk of hunger in our region. In the first six months of 2013, HAFB has distributed more than 2.51 million pounds of food in the 17 county service area. That is 51,980 more pounds than the same time last year or 43,300 more meals. “The additional meals going out to hungry people in our community makes a big impact in people’s everyday lives,” said

Tiffany Tatum, Executive Director. “Our team is working to serve those most in need at the same time the need is growing.” Nearly 300,000 pounds of fresh produce has been distributed this year. Fresh fruits and vegetables are the most difficult and expensive foods for those living in poverty to access on a regular basis. HAFB hosted agency farmers markets and has given away thousands of pounds of fresh apples this summer. Donations from the public

make fresh produce purchases possible. For every $1 donated to HAFB eight meals can be distributed. “Our supporters are really helping us make a difference in the lives of hungry children, seniors and families,” Tatum said. “Together we can set a new record in the fight against hunger.” 93.7 the Dawg is sponsoring “Pack the BackPack” night Thursday, July 25 at the Summer Concert Series at Pullman Square.

People are asked to bring food and school supplies for children to be given out as part of the BackPack program. Recommended items include pop-top ravioli or nutritious soups, assorted flavor instant oatmeal, single serving mac & cheese, single serving fruit and vegetable Cups, single serving cereal, or Hormel "Compleat" shelf stable entrees. For a complete list visit our website at

HAFB distributes over 1,000 backpacks of food to children every week during the school year. Students head back to class August 1. HAFB has also seen the addition of three new board members; Jean Eglinton, Rabbi at B’Nai Shalom; Kathy Hettlinger Dietician at Cabell Huntington Hospital; and Pastor Gary Newman, Director of the Sand Hill Food Pantry.

WeeklyDevotional By Mary Jane “FLOURSHING GARDENS” Thought for the week: Built ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them. Jeremiah; 29:5. (KJV) A few weeks past, I wrote an article about how I thought this year’s Spring season would be so lush and green, so far it’s coming true. God has sent tornados and storms, flash floods and fires to many states - and in various areas of our own state too. Still, there has been enough sunshine, right after the rains that most people who have gardens, are just gloriously, flourishing. Just take a country drive and see for yourself, or it may even be your neighbor’s backyard. Not only gardens, but also the grass and weeds, many yards grow faster than others. Some of our high school Future Farmers of America chapters are growing food for school lunch programs. Efforts throughout the state are increasing the farm-toschool food programs by growing

gardens. These fresh vegetables benefit various state programs. In Morgantown, WV seven minimum and medium security prisons will be planting on small prison-owned plots, gardens which will supply fresh vegetables to Mountaineer Food Bank in Gassaway WV. Mountaineer serves 48 of the 55 counties, distributing food to local pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, youth programs, day care centers, senior programs, and after school nutrition programs. Harvest Now is a website you can go to showing astonishing numbers, such as 100% the amount of hunger we could eliminate if we all gave a little extra by growing a garden to donate. It started in the state of Connecticut in 2008. I made me gardens and orchards, and I planted trees in them of all kinds of fruits. Ecclesiastes 2:5. So, if God blesses you with an abundant vegetable garden this

The Cabell Standard year, you might want to think about sharing with your neighbors and friends who are not able to have a garden - or donate any excess vegetables to the senior citizens in our area for their daily lunch program. God will return you’re giving, back twofold to you, in another way, that’s how it works. A gardener’s poem …… by Sudie Stuart Hager, “HE KNOWS NO WINTER’’ He knows no winter, he who loves the soil; For, stormy days, when he is free from toil, He plans his summer crops, selects his seeds From bright paged catalogues for garden needs, When looking out upon frostsilvered fields, He visualizes autumns golden yields, He sees in snow and sleet and rain, Precious moisture for his early grain, He hears spring heralds in the storms turmoil, He knows no winter, He who loves the soil. Prayer: Our Father in heaven thank you for the rain, and sun, and seeds, to grow our gardens, just another one of your blessings to us. Amen.

Remembering “The Forgotten War” By Justin Waybright

MILTON - The Milton VFW Post 9796 will honor Korean War veterans with a “Pancake For Patriots Breakfast” at 7:30 a.m. Saturday July 27. The Korean War is often referred to as the “Forgotten War.” The Milton VFW wants to bring remembrance to the soldiers, who selflessly served in the 3-yearconflict. It also wishes to honor

the families of these brave men and women who served. “Vets in our Post are what inspired this,” said Dave Wallace, quartmaster at the Milton VFW Post 9796. “Most war veterans relive this every day of their life, and it’s hard to relate that to their families.” Saturday’s event will also mark the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice. The morning breakfast is open to veterans and residents throughout the community.

The purpose of events like this is simple: to remember and honor veterans and their families. “We try, any time we can, to make the community aware of the things they accompished, the sacrifices they gave and everything else they did,” Wallace said. “This is a big event, given the average age of Korean War veterans there are not many left, but we have several vets in our post.” Donations will be accepted at the Milton VFW Post. The breakfast will end at 10:30 a.m.

The council agreed. Harshbarger made the motion to approve the change and Councilmember Charlie Conard seconded. In crime news, Milton Police Chief Chuck Zerkle said his department recorded more than $23,000 of stolen property for the month of June. “That’s extremely large,” he

said. Recently, officers arrested a woman, who allegedly stole thousands from city residents. She was charged with grand larceny and placed in the Western Regional Jail Saturday July 6. “We had a housekeeper stealing from several clients - she got people for thousands of dollars, but we arrested her,” Zerkle said. The meeting ended with the city honoring Tiffani Webb’s selfless service to the area. The young woman completed 862 hours of community service. Milton City Council meetings are open to the public.

Marshall Professor and former Olympic trainer will travel to Brazil to present Biomechanics Research HUNTINGTON – Dr. Suzanne Konz of the Marshall University College of Health Professions will travel to Natal, Brazil this summer to present research at the 2013 International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) conference, which takes place once every two years. Konz, an assistant professor of biomechanics in the School of Kinesiology, said she will share her research among the biggest players in the biomechanical field. She will give an oral presentation on her work titled, “Changes in Windmill Pitch Over Time.” “This is one of those conferences, as a biomechanist, that seems more challenging because I’ll be presenting in front of scholars from all around the world,” Konz said. “It’s exciting to think I could potentially expose someone else to a different perspective of biomechanics research.” Cristina Arikawa, a member of the ISB organizing committee, said only 40 percent of the 858 submitted abstracts were chosen for an oral presentation. “Konz was chosen to give an oral presentation due to the qual-

ity of her research and the fit of her research into the (sports biomechanics) theme of the session,” Arikawa said. She said 53 countries will be represented at this year’s conference. A 2002 Winter Olympic Games athletic trainer, Konz now serves as a member of the USA Track & Field sport science biomechanics group specializing in throwing events, specifically the hammer throw. Konz said she will continue to develop relationships with other professionals in this global forum and showcase the amazing work

being done at Marshall University. “I believe this opportunity puts Marshall on the map in terms of research capabilities in the field of sports science,” Konz said. “From a university standpoint, we want students to see what we do and help provide them with similar opportunities to meet the scholars they read about in their textbooks. This makes our department more personal.” Dr. Gary McIlvain, chair of kinesiology and associate dean of the college, said Konz’s work continues to impress him. “Dr. Konz is an undeniable asset to the College of Health Professions and the School of Kinesiology,” McIlvain said. “I look forward to her future research endeavors which can only highlight the breadth of possibilities available here at Marshall.” The conference takes place from Aug. 4 to 9, and Konz will give her oral presentation from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 7.

DREAM FROM PAGE 1 stretch and hit the road. Confidence and expectation are written on the faces of Caleb Holbrook and Joshua Minor. The two young men have already logged records in middle school that would gain the respect of high school competitors. From Holbrook’s 8-foot long jump to Minor’s 4:50-1,600meter-run, the Cabell County boys have turned the heads of many. So much in fact, that their achievements qualified them for the prestigious 36th Annual Hershey’s Track and Field Meet. Success in track is second nature to runners in the Cabell Midland High School district. For decades, the program has forged some of the state’s greatest athletes. The secret: practice and an unshakeable determination. Minor endures the pain and mental battle of the formidable 1,600-meter run by training his mind and body. “I pray before I run - it’s a mental game, and that’s how I get through it,” he explained. “My head tells me to stop, but I keep the finish line in mind.” This method of mental training, combined with varying speed

and distance workouts has given Minor the chance to compete among the nation’s top distance runners. Holbrook began running track as a sprinter. One year ago, the seventh-grader weighed more than 190 lbs. As a way to stay in shape, he jogged. The jogging turned to running and the running, racing. One year later, nearly half his weight has disappeared and Holbrook is becoming one of the area’s best long jumpers. “I wanted to lose weight -I carried 190 lbs. around, and lost it,” he said. “I didn’t think I’d be this good.” Marion Holbrook is proud of her son. “He’s just transformed into a different person,” she said. Through sprinting and distance running, the long-jumper lengthened his mark by eight inches in one month. “That’s phenomenal,” Minor said to his teammate. Both runners credit success to their family and their coaches. Chris Parsons looks forward to working with the boys. “I’m very excited,” the Cabell Midland track coach said. “Both

are great kids and very humble that shows character, and I’m thankful.” Steve Minor remembers running high school track with Holbrook’s father Tom. The two men now get to experience the joy of watching their sons follow in their footsteps. “This is pretty phenomenal,” said Minor. “I wake up thankful every morning.” Tom Holbrook agreed. He is proud of his son’s accomplishments. “It’s amazing,” he said. “I think he’ll do well - he’s running with the cross country guys and strengthening his legs.” Both runners have an undeniable drive to push through and achieve their goals. Minor’s mother Tammy is pleased that her son has made it this far at a young age. “This is wonderful,” she said. “We always told him to never give up, and he didn’t.” The national competition will begin Aug. 1 and end Aug. 4 in Hershey, Pa. Minor hopes to break 4:50 in the 1,600 and Holbrook hopes to break 8-feet in the long jump.

Velma’sView By Velma Kitchens Butcher Hollow Kentucky One Saturday my husband and I, along with my sister and Mom, went to Butcher Hollow Kentucky to visit Loretta Lynn’s home place. I had been past the sign on Route 23 but did not stop. We stopped in Paintsville at the McDonalds for lunch and then went on to Van Lear which is not far. As Loretta Lynn said a” holler”, not a hollow. We turned on a paved one lane road and went very slow as dogs were in the middle of the road and would just barely move for our vehicle as we approached the store where we had to buy tickets. The tickets did not cost very much and we waited on our tour guide. We drove up the “holler” and past the one-room schoolhouse where Loretta and her brothers and sisters attended school. We drove on past the school and several other buildings and came to a deadend. We looked over across a small stream and saw the house Loretta was born and raised in. Of course, it has had some work on it so the public can go inside and see the things there, but it looked just like the house in the movie, Coal Miner’s Daughter. After a bit a man came and introduced himself to us and we found out it was Loretta’s brother Herman Webb. He was so nice and polite as he took us on a tour of the house and told us the stories of his childhood with Loretta. He said in all the years since she left she only has brought one person to the house with her when she came to visit and that person was Cheryl Ladd. I can't remember why she came with her but that was a long time ago. Herman did tell us that Loretta comes occasionally to visit without warning if she is passing by. We sure was hoping she would stop by that day. My mom and sister have seen her perform many times but I have not. After the tour of the house, we went down to the general store that Herman and his family run and talked to the nice people there. Loretta's twin daughters come and visit frequently their cousins and I met the cousin behind the counter. All of her relatives I met were common people and I learned a lot about Butcher Holler. I call them hollers and not hollows. If you do ever want a day trip Butcher Hollow is the place to go and learn some history. The articles in the house are exactly the way they were when Loretta lived there. Loretta Lynn now makes her home in Hurricane Mills Tennessee where I have been also. On our way back from San Antonio, Texas we stopped there as it was closer than Graceland in Memphis. And again another story and I will write about that one. I never thought I would be back to Texas again after our trip my husband and I took in 1979 across the country to Colorado. And again, another story.

A new crayfish fly for the streams

David Payne Sr. Column by David Payne Sr.

One of my pet peeves is fishing flies that fall apart when you fish with them. I've had several that do and it seems such a waste that so much time and effort is wasted on a fly that only lasts a few casts. The traditional way of tying flies is to start with a thread body (wrapping thread around the hook), and then tie the fly as you go with wrapped thread. Only at the end do you put a dab of rubber cement on the head as you tie off the thread there. If you are an expert tier, I suppose, your flies should be able to stay together if you tie them this way. I however, use Super Glue gel. I

start with a small amount on the hook before I make my first thread wraps. I also add a dab here and there periodically. If it's a dry fly, I'll use very small, strategically-placed amounts. If it's a streamer, I'll use the glue quite liberally and when liberally-applied, superglue and thread, after drying, make a strong combination similar to Fiberglas. I came up with an interesting and fairly easy-tie crayfish (I always called them crawdads) pattern. I had the idea while tying John Tertuliani's crayfish imitation (which was discussed in my column a few weeks ago). You may recall that the crayfish is simply a wooly bugger with eyes at the rear of the hook. Thus, when retrieved, it imitates a crayfish as they swim – backwards. When you are retrieving a crayfish fly, think of how you retrieve a jig – up in an arc, then it falls sharply – because a jig mimics the movement of a fleeing crayfish. A normal streamer fly won't fall fast enough, so John wraps his hook with electrical solder – the unheated solder wire is just wrapped around the hook then covered with thread. I thought, if all this solder weight were concentrated in the right place, on the back side of the shank, the crayfish fly would

The Payne Craw is retrieved with the hook up to reduce snags. The tip of the hackle feather near the hook eye simulates movement of the crayfish tail and the hackle in the middle simulates movement of the crayfish’s legs. move through the water with the sharp end of the hook up, thus reducing snags. The challenge is to get the weight to stay on the back side of the shank and move around on the hook. If you use some Super Glue gel with your thread, you can make a very stout and secure body. You obviously would not want to use a piece of acid-core solder. What I use is some electrical solder I had laying around. I measured the diameter with a pair of vernier calipers. It's 1/16 inch (2mm) in diameter – obviously much thicker than the hook is. I've tried various hooks for this

and found that long shank hooks make the best imitation. On a No. 10 Aberdeen hook, I started with an application of the glue before making my thread body with a red, metallic Kreinik thread then I tied some marabou with a few strands of the red, metallic thread for a “tail,” as you would for a wooly bugger. Remember the tail of the fly is the front of the crayfish I cut a piece of solder so that it was half as long as the shank of the hook. With a pair of pliers, I crushed the solder lengthwise so that it had a flat side to lay on the hook. Then I tied it onto the back

side of the hook shank (the top of the hook as it sits in the vice). I used quite a bit of glue for this. After wrapping the solder and hook shank completely with the red thread, I tied on a pair of small beads for eyes. John uses a short piece of monofilament line for his. He uses heat to melt the line at the ends to make a stopper so the beads won't slide off. I used a slightly longer piece of line. First, using glue and thread, I secured one end of the line to the body then wrapped the red, metallic thread until I got it about where I wanted the eye to be. I put both beads on the line, positioned them where the eyes should be, then (using no glue this time) I tied off the other end of the monofilament line with thread wraps. I repositioned the eyes and tied them off with thread wraps and glue. Using a pair of pliers, I pulled the monofilament snug, clipped the line and secured the end with glue and thread wraps. I made a few wraps with a saddle hackle around the middle of the fly. I used the tip of the hackle feather to make a tail for the crayfish. Kreinik thread by the way is made in Parkersburg, WV. That's one of several reasons I like to use it. You can find some of the thread at West Virginia Hobby and Crafts in Teays Valley.

Outdoors Roundup The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources has announced the winners of the 2012 Big Buck Contest: The contest is sponsored by the DNR, Izaak Walton League of West Virginia, West Virginia Bowhunters Association, West Virginia Muzzeloaders' Association, West Virginia PhysicallyChallenged Advisory Board and Toyota. Michael Taylor of Jumping Branch won the gun category with a 15-point buck he harvested in Summers County. The buck scored 165 5/8. For the muzzeloader category,

William Crothers II of Mineral Wells won with a 14-point Wirt County buck that scored 173 0/8. The winner of the typical bow category was Roger Maynard of Williamson with a 15-point buck from Mingo County that scored 170 1/8. The non-typical winner was Daniel Light from Boomer with a 17-point Fayette County buck that scored 195 0/8. Daniel's buck ranks No. 4 among the alltime buck scores in West Virginia. I'm very glad we don't have to hunt with the crocs: four Australian hunters were tracking pigs with their dogs near Darwin, Australia. One of the dogs caught a

pig in a river and one of the hunters (who was wearing a GoPro camera), waded in to pull them out. The other hunters stood on lookout for approaching crocodiles, but one was apparently already there beneath the water. Suddenly, a 14-foot crocodile exploded from the water and latched onto the dog with its jaws. The hunter barely escaped as the crocodile thrashed wildly. The hunters did not want to be identified and had a friend speak to the news media on their behalf. “It took the dog in one bite,” the friend said. “It was probably the best dog he'll ever have.” A couple of interesting reads

you might want to try this summer were written by U.S. presidents: “Fishing for Fun,” by Herbert Hoover and “Fishing and Shooting Sketches” by Grover Cleveland. They are two vastly different books. Hoover, whom everyone except fly-fishing elitists would consider him something of a flyfishing elitist, chops his book full of quotable lines, such as “all men are equal before fish.” Cleveland spent more time hunting and fishing than even Theodore Roosevelt did. He fished nearly every day, rain or shine, winter or summer. There was nothing elitist about any of Cleveland's attitudes – the small-

mouth bass was his favorite fish. If you're setting out trail cameras early in preparation for deer season, that's a good thing, but be careful not to put too much pressure on the deer. Big bucks don't like pressure whether you are out with a gun, bow or just checking on a camera. Try to avoid bedding areas and check on your cameras in the middle of the day, if possible. France wants to cull its wolf population, but will need some American hunters to do it. Wolves are a protected species in France, but have been causing significant livestock damage in some areas. French officials have organized cull hunts with no luck. For example, one hunt was organized with 150 hunters and a goal of harvesting 22 wolves. They harvested exactly zero wolves. Problem is, French officials say, nobody there knows how to hunt wolves, despite the fact wolf hunting was once a prestigious sport of the privileged in France. French officials are discussing bringing in expert hunters from the United States and Canada.

Local Embalmer Makes the Impossible Possible HUNTINGTON - When a loved one dies we are faced with acknowledging a difficult reality. It is very hard to accept the finality of death, but the viewing and funeral helps us begin to do so. At first we must accept the death with our heads, and only over time do we come to accept it with our hearts. When death occurs due to disfiguring trauma, whether caused by accident or disease, this reality may be even harder to deal with. This problem can be compounded when accidents are investigated by various officials who then tell the family that, due to the condition of the body, the deceased is not viewable. Typically, physicians, coroners, and law enforcement personnel are not qualified to make such a determination. There are a select few embalmers who have advanced training and specialize in post-mortem reconstructive surgery. These specialists can reconstruct some of the most severe traumatic injuries and make the deceased’s appearance acceptable

and recognizable. In the Tri-State we are fortunate to have one such specialist. Shane A.S. Ritchie, CFSP is a licensed West Virginia embalmer and funeral director who has an extensive background in special restorative techniques and has undergone advanced training at the world renowned Fountain National Academy in Springfield, MO. After losing his twenty four year old daughter to a severe case of antibiotic resistant pneumonia, Ritchie decided to turn his tragedy into an opportunity to help others who have lost loved ones. He returned to school and finished college with a bachelor’s degree in management from Ottawa University and attended the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science where he graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2007. In that same year he scored in the top 3% of mortuary science students nationwide on the American Board of Funeral Service Education National Board exam. In 2008 he received his West Virginia funeral director and em-

balmer licenses. “I had always had an interest in funeral service. The death of my daughter was the impetus for me to follow my dream and use my God given talents to help others.” Ritchie said. “When my daughter died, I truly realized the importance of the funeral ritual and of viewing the body in particular. I had to see her, to hold her hand and tell her goodbye. Closing the casket was not an option. This was

so important that I had to find a way to help others have the same privilege; even when they have been told by others that it would not be possible.” He added. Since childhood, Mr. Ritchie has had a keen interest in anatomy, sculpture, forensic art, airbrush, and special effects makeup techniques. By adapting these skills to his work as an embalmer, he and a select group of progressive embalmers have helped to usher in a new era in mortuary restoration procedures. He has written numerous articles on the subject which have been published in many funeral trade journals, both nationally and internationally. “Using the special post-mortem reconstructive surgical techniques taught at the Fountain National Academy along with my background in special effects cosmetics, there are very few cases of traumatic death that cannot be restored to an acceptable and identifiable appearance.”, Ritchie said. Thanks to his outstanding work and creativity in his field, Mr.

Ritchie has been invited to be a featured speaker at the International Embalming & Reconstructive Surgery Conference For Professional Embalmers in August of 2014 in Springfield, MO. This conference brings together the brightest minds in the profession from all over the world to discuss and learn new techniques and promote the value of embalming, restorative art, viewing the body, and funeral service. Because of his unwavering belief in the emotional and psychological value of viewing the body before final disposition, Shane A.S. Ritchie, CFSP is available for consultation on subjects of embalming and restoration procedures at no charge regardless of which funeral home a family chooses. He is currently employed as LicenseeIn-Charge at Beard Mortuary, Huntington, WV, and can be reached at (304) 522-8253 or via email at

Cabell Huntington Hospital Unveils New and Expanded Burn Intensive Care Unit State’s only specialized unit for burn care grows to 6 beds HUNTINGTON - A new and expanded Cabell Huntington Hospital Burn Intensive Care Unit (BICU) was unveiled Tuesday, July 10th after 11 months of construction with features and space further enhancing the state’s only specialized hospital unit for people who suffer from severe burns. The unit relocated from the hospital’s fifth floor to the fourth floor and has grown to include six critical care beds and more than twice

as much space. The new $1.8 million BICU has upgraded equipment and technology necessary to provide advanced care for adults and children with delicate burn injuries. The Cabell Huntington Hospital Burn Intensive Care Unit opened in 1981 with four beds and remains the only unit of its kind inWestVirginia and the Huntington/Tri-State area, treating patients who would otherwise need to be transported

to similar units in Pittsburgh or Cincinnati. The expansion helps meet the growing needs of the more than 350 patients treated for burn injuries each year at Cabell Huntington Hospital. The BICU physicians and staff use a team approach to help burn victims, while recognizing the complications that often occur as the result of a burn. Physical and occupational therapists, dietitians, respiratory therapists, pastoral

counselors and social workers work together with the medical staff to help burn patients recover. Staff members also provide outreach and education about burn prevention and treatment techniques for community medical facilities and community members. For more information about the Burn Intensive Care Unit at Cabell Huntington Hospital, please call 304.526.2390 or visit

Cabell Huntington Hospital is a 303-bed academic medical center located in Huntington, West Virginia. Cabell Huntington cares for patients from more than 29 counties throughoutWestVirginia, eastern Kentucky and southern Ohio. Opened in 1956, it is a teaching hospital and is affiliated with Marshall University Schools of Medicine and Nursing.

growing as a Christian for members of Milton Baptist. From a traditional and a contemporary Sunday service to a plethora of small groups, online services, ministries and outreach programs, this church body offers specialized niches to meet the needs of any and all members. Mills has preached here for more than six years, and his position is more than a job, but a calling, he said. “I have the opportunity to deal with people when they’re hurting - people allow you into their lives, and sometimes, through the Spirit, you can share wisdom and help and be with them in the midst of their struggles,” he said.

“I also get to share in their joy and be with people when they ask Christ into their lives.” The pastor continued, “It’s exciting to see their journey begin.” Another aspect that has helped Milton Baptist remain resilient for 135 years is its attention to forward thinking. “Where there is no vision, the people perish,” states Proverbs 29:18. But this church has a vision. “My vision is everything we do today will have an impact on the future,” said Mills. “It’s what God is doing through us and by us in our country.” Milton Baptist Church will celebrate a feat: loving, impacting and growing through 135 years of

service. The church will hold a celebration service 10:30 a.m. Sunday July 28 with a special dinner to follow where former pastors and members will reminisce. The church holds contemporary service and Sunday school

9:30 a.m., traditional service and Sunday school 11 a.m. and small groups 6 p.m. on Sundays. For more information about Milton Baptist, call (304) 7433461 or visit

JOURNEY FROM PAGE 1 history, we have never been afraid to do new things,” he said. “We don’t hold on to something just because of tradition - some things we must let go of.” Mills continued, “The willingness to examine, let go, tweak and create - that is what has helped us continue to grow after 135 years.” That growth has inspired the construction of a parsonage, a gym and an educational wing during the past years. Even more than church expansion, the congregation has grown in its hunger to step outside church walls and change the world. The avenues to accomplish this mission are vast. So are the ways of learning about God and

MU Foundation surpasses goal in 630 by 6/30 Challenge Campaign HUNTINGTON - The Marshall University Office of Development surpassed an ambitious fundraising goal in June, helping the MU Foundation finish the fiscal year on a strong note. A one-month campaign, called “MU Challenge 630 by 6/30,” raised more than $78,000 – including two endowed scholarship gifts totaling $32,000, according to Grif-

fin Talbott, director of annual giving. The goal was for 630 donors to make contributions during the month of June. Overall, 648 donors gave to the campaign. Dr. Greg Crews and Dr. Dallas Nibert, who have a family dentistry practice in Huntington, agreed to contribute $10,000 when the goal of 630 donors was met.

“The MU Challenge 630 by 6/30 was a huge success,” Talbott said. “Thanks to Drs. Greg Crews and Dallas Nibert. They were the first to offer a challenge gift.” Talbott was thrilled with the success of the challenge campaign. He

praised Marshall alumni, friends and family for their contributions. Christine Anderson, assistant vice president with the MU Foundation, said she also is grateful to all who contributed. “We are grateful to doctors Greg

Crews and Dallas Nibert for serving as examples in our first-ever challenge campaign,” she said. “Our success is made possible by the partnerships we have with our friends and alumni and they are certainly a testament to that.”

Kim Bailey Honored as Cabell County Schools Service Personnel Employee of the Year Cabell County Schools is pleased to announce that, Kim Bailey, Secretary at the Salt Rock Elementary School, is the district’s “Service Personnel Employee of the Year” for 2013. Bailey was honored with a reception at the Board of Education’s Regular Board meeting in June. Bailey came to work for Cabell County Schools as a substitute in 2001. According to Manager of Service Personnel, Jerry Lake, she has “…maintained an exemplary employment record with regard to attendance, job performance, and willingness to accept assignments at any school or grade level.” Since becoming a full time School Secretary in 2004, Lake says Mrs. Bailey has worked under the supervision of five different Principals at two work sites assignments and, without exception, has received very positive evaluations from each one. “Comments such as cooperative, punctual, excellent attendance, multitasker, attention to detail, professional, friendly,

team-player, asset to the staff, personable, and great work ethic appear consistently on evaluations from each administrator who has supervised her,” says Mr. Lake. In 2010, Mrs. Bailey took on ad-

ditional responsibilities with the school system as GED Examiner of the Official GED Testing Center at the Cabell County Career Technology Center. Bailey has served as the service personnel representative on her

schools’ LSIC committees, and on budget committees. She also recently completed training and received a certificate from the Department of Homeland Security’s PCII Program Office. Lake says he frequently calls

upon Mrs. Bailey to provide training for newly hired substitute secretaries. “She provides excellent training to the new hires, giving them ample opportunities for hands-on real world experience as a school secretary,” Lake says. Bailey is active in her community and Church. She is a member of a group that provides prayer shawls and other items to the Hospice House in Huntington, WV. Her group also provides supplies to the Barboursville Veteran’s Home and food and supplies to the Huntington Animal Shelter. Bailey is also the proud grandmother of an Autistic child. She and her family are active supporters of the Autism Foundation and she participates in various fundraising activities for the group. “Mrs. Bailey always handles her job with poise and grace even under stressful conditions. She always dresses appropriately, has impeccable telephone skills, and is a role model for students, staff, and the community,” adds Mr. Lake.
