CHARLESTON - Paul Holley entered a terminal to more than 50 smiling faces. Yeager Airport came alive with joy Friday June 14. Clapping and cheering overtook the waiting area. It was not what Holley expected to experience after returning home from the Shriners Hospital for Children in Chicago. Inevitable excitement burst into the airport. "This is crazy...This is unbelievable," the stunned Hannan High School student said. "This has been tough - it's been a battle - a journey." In late February, on a rainy day, the high school student crashed his classic 1971 Chevy

A joyful scene - Family and friends welcome Paul Holley back home Friday June 14. Photo by Justin Waybright Pickup. First responders worked for more than one hour to free

Holley from the battered vehicle. Initially, doctors told the

young man he would be paralyzed and "could do nothing," Holley remembered. "They said I could do nothing on my own, so I had to prove them wrong," he said. Family transported Holley to the Chicago hospital where he received treatment and rehabilitation. Through the dark time in his life, friends, family, nurses and doctors comforted him. "The support there helped me a lot," he said. Tears streamed down April Vicker's face while she wheeled her son into the airport lobby. Emotion overtook her. "He's come a long way," she said, smiling and crying. "I never would have dreamed that he would have this much support." Jodi Johnson helped raise HOMECOMING ON PAGE 8

Spreading Love, Joy and Hope By Justin Waybright

CULLODEN--Selfless love came to a nursing home and an apartment complex Thursday. The sound of heavenly songs penetrated the atmosphere of Rose Terrace Nursing Home while laughter echoed outside Hiddenbrook Apartments. Driven men and women, young and old, travelled from as far as Indiana and Georgia to impact Milton and Culloden with a simple message: love. "I want people to feel the same love and joy that I feel in Christ," said 16-year-old Crosby Cowley. "At the end of the day, when everyone else walked out on me, he's always there." Early into the week, she in-

Milton Council Awarded Grants By Justin Waybright

MILTON - The city was awarded a grant during councilmember Jimmy Smith's last council meeting. Bill Kelley, president of Greater Kanawha Resource and Conservation District presented council a $2,000 check for the ditch line and shrubbery work done on the skate park. Kelley credited Smith, who was a member of the district, for securing the grant. He also informed council members of a $3,500 grant for stabilizing the creek bank at Sargent Park. "We appreciate Jimmy's help," said Mayor Tom Canterbury. Council members also reviewed the results of an emer-

Photo by Justin Waybright gency meeting they held June 11. The 15-minute meeting adjourned with the council opening bids and approving the lease of

farmland at Morris Memorial Hospital. At the June 18 meeting, Canterbury read a letter from the West

Virginia Division of Culture and History. It stated information about Morris Memorial being placed on the National Registry of

Historic Places May 8. "This is a great thing for the city of Milton," the mayor said. "Look for big things to happen there." On the bad side of news, the police department has received complaints of scams hitting residents. Police Chief Chuck Zerkle warned audience members. "People are coming to people's homes with a small child," he said. "They pilfer around and go through medicine cabinets." Zerkle continued, "This is an ongoing thing - it's becoming more popular. Don't let them in your house. Pain meds and prescriptions - that's what they're looking for." He urged residents to call 911 in lieu of the police department because dispatchers can connect to Milton officers during after hours. The next council meeting is scheduled 7 p.m. Tuesday July 2.

"You've acquired the knowledge and tools to advance your careers, you've been taught how to think and as graduates, you have the self confidence that will take you places in the world outside this campus," SSU President Rita Rice Morris said to the graduates at commencement. "Reach out and take all the opportunities that come your way." The following local students graduated with Associate's Degrees: Audra Bailey, of Huntington, W.Va., graduated with an Associate's Degree in Nursing. Patrice Carter, of Huntington, W.Va., graduated with an Associate's Degree in Nursing. Timbalena Wilburn, of Huntington, W.Va., graduated with an Associate's Degree in Nursing.

“LIFE’S TIME” Thought for the week: Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say Rejoice. Philippians; 4; 4-8 (KJV) The verses in Philippians were listed as favorites in the biography of 1950’s actress Gale Storm, whose TV shows of “My Little Margie’’ are so well remembered. At the impressionable age of 15 myself, I looked forward to each episode with laughter, to view what antics she got herself into. In June 2009 she passed away, at age 87 years old. She was a Christian, whose earlier life had bouts of alcoholism, she became a vigorous advocate to others, to fight this disease, with help and hope for a better life. Born and raised in Texas, her father died when she was 17 months old, leaving her Mother to raise three girls on her own. We often associate our youth

memories, with such times, as watching TV shows, or special news events, such as do you remember, where you were, when the news of Pres. John F. Kennedy was assassinated? I was crossing 4th Ave. in Huntington, WV with my children and friend Bonnie. The mind is a great member of our body, to store all this away, and restores it at the mention of something or someone. Our span on earth seems short with age, especially when you attend a class reunion, or see someone you have not seen in fifty years. My secret thoughts are, ”Do I look that old?” - Nine times out of ten, the person looking back at you thinks the same thing about you! When did she get so gray headed, well take a look in the mirror, where did your hair go? HA! The glory of young men is their strength; and thy beauty of

The Cabell Standard old men is the grey head. Proverbs 20; 29. (Go Fred) Another mind trick - you may feel young, but gravity and age, have robbed that body of energy to do what the mind thinks it can do - we have no choice, but to accept life’s span, and rejoice in the Lord, to thank Him for each day He gives us. So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Psalm 90; 12. Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philippians 4; 6. As the month of JUNE passes by, let us look forward to JULY! JUNE QUOTATION - James Whitcomb Riley - 1849-1916: Then let us, one and all be contented with our lot. The June is here this morning, and the sun is shining hot. Oh! Let us fill our hearts up, with the glory of the day, And banish every doubt, care, and sorry far away. Prayer: Blessed Father of ALL, thank you for each and every day, no matter what comes our way. Amen.

Velma’sView By Velma Kitchens Phone Records Ok, I don't know what the big deal is about the NSA having our phone records and who we call. If looking at my cell phone records will keep terrorism out of our country, then praise be! Just keep on looking. Those of us who have nothing to hide should be thankful that someone or some agency is keeping a close watch on who Americans call and what all their affiliations are and especially to those who want to harm us. I don't think most of us have any deep dark secrets that our government wants, but think of those who do and be thankful we have the technology to keep a close watch and warn others who can take care of a problem before it starts. We little people here in America are so fast to blame the government for everything, but we can take responsibility ourselves to keep our country safe. Most of us call family friends, coworkers and businesses that are ordinary, but what if the NSA can catch someone calling the same number over and over and on the other end is a suspicious character and look into that phone call and with some investigation find that these people are not on the up and up and stop them from any plan they may have to harm America. Our country is the country to call on when anyone needs help. We have always been givers to other countries and yet there are those who want to destroy us. God help us to be in prayer for our great nation and thank those who protect us from harm – even the ones who have our phone records.

The Cabell Standard

Fishing like George Washington

David Payne Sr. Column by David Payne Sr.

With West Virginia's 150th birthday last week and the 150th anniversary of the state's largest Civil War battle, Droop Mountain coming up this November, there's a renewed interest in all things sesquicentennial. When I was in college, I did quite a bit of Civil War reenacting with the Co. F 11th Virginia Cavalry. I participated in the Droop Mountain reenactment several times and there are lots of other folks around this great state who enjoy re-living history that way. One thing I wish I had done back then is fish. Certainly Civil War soldiers, especially rationpoor Confederates, did their

share of fishing to pass the long weeks between campaigns both for fun and sustenance. For your average person, fishing gear of Civil War had changed little, if any, from the Revolutionary War. Should you ever want to make your own reenactors' tackle box, you can use George Washington's tackle box as an example. Just do an Internet search for “George Washington fishing kit” and you will see a picture of it. George Washington did quite a bit of fishing in his day, both for recreation and business. He operated a commercial fishery on the Potomac River (one of Mount Vernon's many endeavors) that caught fish and preserved them in salt for export and he seemed to be always ready for some leisurely fishing. He fished the Ohio in West Virginia during his 1770 trip and while he didn't record it in his diary as far as I know, there's a good chance he even fished the Kanawha River in Putnam and Mason counties when he was here. There probably wasn't a hole in northern Virginia, Maryland or New Jersey he hadn't fished. He even did some salt-water fishing in Barbados. Washington, mind you, was a very busy man. I'm sure he didn't fish every day, but he dropped a line when he could. He carried his tackle box in his coat pocket, ready to fish when-

ever the opportunity presented itself. Back in those days, fishing tackle was far more compact than today. Washington's complete tackle box – at least the one that survives – is an oval-shaped can, not all that different really from a shoe polish tin. Inside are hooks of two sizes, one for trout, perch and bass and another for larger fish, such as catfish. Wound around a piece of wood is the main fishing line, made of braided horse hair. There's also a thinner line made of silk for the hooks. There is also some wax for the line. At first glance, Washington's hooks themselves look surprisingly modern, although they are eyeless. Washington's hook, called a “spade” hook, is made from a round piece of wire that is flattened at the end to keep the line from sliding off. This type of hook actually works very well and stays very securely on the line. The hooks were blued so they wouldn't rust. You may notice that there is no reel, except for the small wood trellis the line is wound on. There is also no rod. Angling in those days was up close, personal and had as much in common with hunting and fishing of today. Washington would simply walk down to the stream and find a nice-looking

branch or sapling to tie his hooked line to. He'd turn over a rock or two and whatever insect or worm he'd find under it would be his bait. Washington’s fishing tackle box and accompanying hooks and line can be viewed in the Elizabeth and Stanley DeForest Scott Gallery in Mount Vernon’s Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center or by searching for “George Washington fishing kit” on the Internet. You can make or purchase such a kit. Try – they sell period-correct fishing tackle from the 1400s to 1800s. They have historical tackle already made or the supplies you need to make your own. I found much of what I needed to make my kit at West Virginia Hobby and Craft in Teays Valley. In the bracelet section, you'll find hemp cord that you can use for period-correct line. They also have hackle feathers you can use for flies and wing feathers you can use to make a period-correct quill float. Washington always had really nice stuff. If you make your own, it won't look as good as his, but it will be more like something your average person might have had with either homemade hooks or hooks made by the local blacksmith.

Thus far, I've made two hooks and my fishing line. For the line, I used the hemp cordage from the bracelet/bead section. It's already period-correct; the only thing it lacks is the optional wax. I used the hemp line also to snell my hooks. You need the hook line to be weaker than your main line – so if it breaks, it will always break at the hook, so I removed one of the hemp strands from my snell line. For the hooks, I used the .047 music wire. I cut small sections of wire, then heated them and bent them into the shape of a hook. I flattened one end of the hook (where the eye would be if it had one) with a hammer and also flattened the hook point. I then filed the point of the hook sharp and made a barb with the file. I used the hemp line for my hook, but that's just because it is what I had. Silk thread would be period correct and probably work better. That's really all you need to make some hooks and line. Back then, a straight branch – cut on site - was all you needed for a rod. I've never heard of a fishing reenactor before, but it sounds like a lot of fun. Contact David Payne at

Outdoors Roundup I saw something last week that you don't see every day: A hen with chicks in tow. I was driving along and a hen was crossing with her chicks. I slowed down and watched as the mother hurried her chicks along. I thought they were all across, but there were some stragglers in the weeds on the other side. The hen crossed the road again, scolded her wayward chicks, then walked back to the other side and herded her other chicks away from the road. She turned around, scolded the chicks as they started across the road. They started running, one of them started flying, but, being a baby chick, it could only fly about three inches

off the ground. It was one of the cutest things I've seen. A tip for fly-fishing streamers: If you shake your hand – almost as if you were having a tremor – you can make your streamer move like a crankbait. I've done this for years. Green weenies are especially effective moved this way. You don't see many people retrieve like that (I don't think I've ever seen anybody beside myself retrieve like that). I think that has a lot to do with the fact most flyfishermen started out with spinning-rods and the modern spinning lures we've become accustomed to. In the old days, your lure was basically a lump of wood that you had to make move

like a fish. Now, the lures are designed to move themselves. I saw a man who is a genius: I was fishing on a stream recently and a man stopped by with an odd-looking pole. The pole had several circular scouring pads attached at the ends. He waded chest deep into the water with his pole, thrust the pole among the tree branches, gave a few twists and tugs and pulled lure after lure from the tree. He said he gets several hundred dollars worth of lures each year this way. In an hour, I saw him pull probably $50 worth of lures from that one tree. Who would have thought this: I was fishing in Pocahontas County recently with my son. He had just gotten a new fly rod and fished with it a half-hour before he was in the stream swimming. Trout weren't hitting anything, but I was catching bass and bluegill, so I switched over to

streamers and targeted those fish. What seemed odd to me was that little David's swimming had no affect on the fishing whatsoever. In fact, I was catching fish just a few feet away from him. There is a new West Virginia State Record skipjack herring: Zachary Hankins of Chesapeake, Ohio, broke the state length record, literally by a skipjack nose. The fish was 19.21 inches long and weighed 2.61 pounds. It bested the former state record for length, a 19.1-inch skipjack caught by Howard Neal Craig on the Ohio River and the former weight record, a 2.61-pound fish caught by Steve Skeens from the Kanawha River in 2002. Steve Skeens has had about a bazillion state record fish. Or maybe it was just two, but it seems like I've seen Steve Skeens name pop up a thousand times over the years. He still has the state record for walleye. That man can fish. It is a shame, a crying shame there is no mooneye-herring record keeping. I caught a mooneye herring several years ago that was 19.5 inches long and one of the largest mooneyes ever caught. I wouldn't have gotten

There should at least be a trophy-citation category for this fish, but there is not. It was one of my most memorable catches and certainly the most acrobatic fish I've ever had on the line. The fly I caught it on is called the Bad Oldesloe worm, designed by Dirk Stiebler of Bad Oldesloe, Germany.

New Data Shows 113,520 Residents in Our Area at Risk of Hunger HUNTINGTON, WV – A new study finds 113,520 people in our 17 county, 3 state service area – including 35,320 children – do not always know where they will find their next meal. In all, 15.4 percent of the population in the Huntington Area Food Bank region struggles with hunger, according to research release today by Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization. The findings are from Feeding America’s “Map the Meal Gap” study, which estimates the rate of food insecurity for both the general population and, separately, for children under the age of 18. The estimates are calculated at both the county and congressional-district level for the entire U.S. HAFB is part of the Feeding America network. “Food insecurity is one of the leading public health challenges in the United States,” said Dr. Craig Gunderson, Professor of Agriculture and Consumer Economics at the University of Illi-

nois, an international food insecurity expert and the lead researcher of the “Map the Meal Gap” study. “We undertook this research to demonstrate the extent and prevalence of food insecurity at both the county and congressional-district level. This data has the potential to redefine the way service providers and policy makers address food insecurity in the communities they serve. “We are particularly concerned about children who are undernourished. A child who does not receive adequate nutrition may experience behavioral problems, have difficulty concentrating in school and has an increased risk of medical problems. Lack of adequate nutrition in children, for even a brief period of time, may also cause permanent physical and developmental impairments,” Gunderson said. According to the U.S Department of Agriculture, more than 50 million people nationwide are food insecure.

By analyzing household income levels, the study reveals 72 percent of children at risk of hunger in western West Virginia, northeastern Kentucky and southeastern Ohio are eligible for federal nutrition programs, such as free or reduced school lunch and breakfast - but 27.6 percent are not. “No one should have to worry about where they will find their next meal,” said Tiffany Tatum, Executive Director of the Huntington Area Food Bank. “This study gives us specifics about hunger in our own backyard and serves as a wake-up call to everyone about the reality of hunger.” “Map the Meal Gap 2013” also shows: • The cost of an average meal in HAFB’s service area. Here in our region the cost of an average meal is $2.53. The cost of an average • meal relative to the national average is $2.67. This is the third year Feeding America has conducted the “Map

the Meal Gap” study. The findings of "Map the Meal Gap" are based on statistics collected by the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics; food price data and analysis were provided by Nielsen (NYSE: NLSN), a global information and measurement company providing insights into what consumers watch and buy. The study was generously supported by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Nielsen and The ConAgra Foods Foundation. Prior to the study’s first release in March 2011, food insecurity data was only available at the state level in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s annual report. The study further analyzes each county's food insecure population to determine their income eligibility for federal nutrition assistance, and also provides meal cost estimates for every county in the nation. The Huntington Area Food Bank is a 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit organization affiliated with Feeding America, the largest hunger relief

agency in the United States. HAFB services nearly 200 agencies in Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia. HAFB receives products from Feeding America, USDA, local donors, regional grocers, restaurants, farmers, food manufacturers and food processors. About Feeding America Feeding America is a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that leads the fight against hunger in the United States. Together, we provide food to more than 37 million people through 61,000 food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters in communities across America. Feeding America also supports programs that improve food security among the people we serve; educates the public about the problem of hunger; and advocates for legislation that protects people from going hungry.

New Heights Church meets every Sunday at the Milton Pre-K at 10 a.m. for service. Pastor Will Basham and his church also worked with World Changers last week. For him and his congregation, being out in the community came natural. "When you don't have a building, it forces you out into the community to let people know you're there," he said. "Instead of chasing numbers, we said, 'let's see where we can be most effective for advancing the kingdom

of God." After research and prayer, Basham chose Milton for New Heights Church. Members stayed busy last week with outreach projects, block parties, nursing home visits, basketball camps and a community night at the Pumpkin Park. More than 170 came to the park during the event, Basham said. The local pastor is excited to get involved in the community. He is especially happy to see other churches coming together. "It's great to see churches in West Virginia, Indiana and Georgia sacrifice and come here to Milton and Culloden with the same mindset," Basham said. "We want to do the things that are hard--not about us, but about God." For more information about World Changers, visit For more information about New Heights Church, visit

Annual Quilt and Wall Hanging Exhibition on Display at the Culture Center CHARLESTON - The West Virginia Division of Culture and History’s annual exhibition, Quilts and Wall Hangings 2013, was unveiled in the Great Hall and the south wing of the Culture Center, State Capitol Complex in Charleston on Friday, May 24, 2013. The crowd-pleasing juried exhibition features 62 exquisite quilts and wall hangings representing the talents of West Virginia quilters. Quiltmaking is one of West Virginia’s oldest and most treasured art forms, and this annual display is a favorite with visitors from all over the United States and abroad. The exhibit will be on display through Sept. 2. The exhibition includes work by 57 quilters from 23 counties. Winners were selected in four categories: pieced quilts, appliquéd quilts, mixed/other quilts and wall

hangings. Awards were presented at 7 p.m., May 24, during the Friday evening concert of the Vandalia Gathering. Quilt awards are $750 for first place, $400 for second place, and $300 for third place. The Wall Hanging awards are $400 for first place, $300 for second place and $200 for third place. The Division also made two purchase awards, one quilt and one wall hanging, and the judge designated a Best of Show prize of $100. In addition, eight non-monetary honorable mention distinctions and a Judge’s Choice award were made. “The quilt exhibition in the Great Hall is one of our most popular and colorful exhibitions,” said Commissioner Randall ReidSmith of the Division. “Visitors enjoy the fine handiwork of West Virginians whose creativity and appreciation of tradition are

showcased in the quilts and wall hangings we feature.” Beverly Fine, a National Quilting Association Certified Judge from Haymarket, Va., served as judge for this year’s exhibition. She made her first quilt for a friend when she was in high school, and became a dedicated quilter in 1996. Fine focuses her work on monoprinting, or using an etching press and/or fabric marbling, as well as dye-painting and shibori techniques. Her work has been exhibited in juried shows, including the Fitchburg Art Museum and the Johsonia Gallery in Fitchburg, Mass.; the Whistler House Museum of Art, the Brush Art Gallery and Studios and the New England Quilt Museum, all in Lowell, Mass. She recently co-authored the book Guide to Judged Quilt Shows, available through or

Amazon. The Culture Center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

One Unique Journey By Justin Waybright

ST. ALBANS - For Dawn and Dan Cullen, opening their new business has been a journey. A winding and sometimes rocky path led to the front door of the Cullen's first business. The aging building needed major updating. However, it was a leap of faith the husband-andwife team was ready to take. This year, the two renovated a building near the city's Old Main Street district. With prayer and with help from family friend Melanie Horn, the vision for a unique store with a unique atmosphere was born. Now, inside the brick building, peace and serenity fill the walls. Smiles and warmth radiate from Dawn, Dan and Melanie. Colorful decor, infused with an oldworld, vintage style, creates a heavenly shopping experience like no other. On Tuesday, Cullen's Journey opened its doors for the first time. Months of hard work and

hard praying finally paid off. "Getting here to this shop has been a hard road," Co-owner Dawn Cullen said. "We've not had it easy - we've had struggles, and it's been a journey." Her husband Dan agreed. "It's been a long process of getting it to here," he said, referring to overhauling the building. The couple prayed together for help. Help came. Peace flooded their home and they got to work. In a few short months, the Cullens built an office and shipping area, removed old carpet to show classic hardwood and re-painted walls. The two then purchased items that invoke morals, ethics and values: aspects they believe are missing from this generation. "There are so many kids out there who don't get a good word, and we're just trying to give them a little motivation," Dan said. "Manners and etiquette are lost today, and we're just trying to bring this back." Dawn agreed. "We're trying to get values and principals out there," she said. "We want to build relationships - not just customers - and give

Spreading love, respect and compassion - Melanie Horn and Dawn and Dan Cullen stand inside their new gift shop Cullen's Journey. The business opened its doors Tuesday morning. Owners hope to hold a grand opening this summer. Photo by Justin Waybright back to the community." Inside Cullen's Journey, guests can find custom decor, jewelry, candles, clothing, encouraging books and a plethora of items to put a smile on the saddest face. "We're trying to get things no one else has," said Dawn. Across from her, Dan played with one such item. In the palm of his hand sat a tiny, round speaker. "Watch this," he said smiling. The co-owner placed the

speaker under a trash can. Perfect sound resonated from the plastic container. Then, he placed it on a glass display cabinet. Beautiful, undistorted sound echoed throughout the store. "The Rocket" is one exclusive product Cullen's Journey offers its patrons. "We offer you unique items you're not going to find at a typical chain store," Dan said. Horn is proud to work at a

business that is in a niche all its own. The business major looks forward to helping Cullen's Journey thrive. "When you come in here, it's very wholesome and I think this will go far," she said. "This place has family values and respect." Horn continued, "What you see is what you get, and the Cullens are very genuine." Through working with Dawn and Dan, she fulfilled one of her dreams: helping to run a new business. The Cullens hope to turn their shop into a place that offers matchless love and help for the community. As they look toward the future, Dawn and Dan know it will be a journey; however, it's one they are ready to take.
