Barboursville Library staffer will be missed By Brian Harper For The Cabell Standard
Nearly a quarter century ago, Judy Morrison was looking for a job. “A friend of mine said the Barboursville Library was looking for help,” Morrison said. “So I went on down and put in my application.” She never had to look again. Since then, Morrison has tirelessly devoted her time and energy to the Barboursville Public Library. Earlier this year, Morrison announced her retirement from the library, and a small ceremony was held in her honor last week. Over the course of her time at the library, Morrison has been present for numerous changes. She was an integral part of implementing several programs for both adults and children, such as book clubs, story hours, arts and crafts, and time for after school projects. But perhaps the biggest change over the course of her time at the library had to do with technology, especially with computers and the Internet. SEE LIBRARY ON PAGE 4

ST. ALBANS – Things were looking bleak for the Cabell Midland girls. With the home St. Albans crowd rocking, the Lady Knights trailed by eight and were on the verge of watching their season slip away. They needed a spark. And they got one from sophomore guards Summer Stephenson and Haley Haggerty. Stephenson knocked down a huge three, and then hit a jump shot after a big defensive stop. Sierra Jordan then had a steal and a layup for a three-point play that capped off an 8-0 run and completely swung momentum the way of the Lady Knights. They rode the wave en route to a 52-42 victory and a trip to the state tournament in Charleston. Cabell Midland is the No. 7 seed and plays No. 3 Greenbrier East at 11:15 a.m. Wednesday.

$39,225 raised at Ham, Bacon & Egg sale Trudy Black firstname.lastname@example.org
A total of 42 FFA and 4-H members from Cabell and Lincoln counties participated in the 26th annual Ham, Bacon and Egg sale. The event was held last Friday at the Pullman Plaza Hotel, Huntington in front of a packed room. According to Rosella Call, 2014 Cabell Foundation for Agricultural Advancement committee member, most programs around the state are for FFA members only. Cabell County has always included the 4-H members, however. During this year’s sale participants sold 40 hams, 40 bacons and 10 dozen eggs. There were items sold for the foundation with $2,100 going back to support
the program next year. Ron Morrison served as auctioneer for the event with Tom Roten as the announcer. Morrison said he has been a ring-man or auctioneer since the sale began 26 years ago. Once again, he kept the crowd bidding and the ring-men spotted every nod of the head and wave of the hand. Morrison said he wasn't letting anything go for under $200 and he made sure to do just that with items selling from $200 to $3,750. Zachary Call’s Grand Champion Ham set a new sales record. It was purchased by Nelson's Custom Meats for $3,750. He is the son of Stacy and Rosella Call of Milton. SEE SALE ON PAGE 9

School board presents case for Aug. 6 start date By Amanda White
PROPOSED PRO POSED 2014-2015 2014-2015 SC SCHOOL HOOL YEAR YEAR C CALENDAR ALENDAR
For The Cabell Standard
The calendar debate continues as the Cabell Board of Education was presented with factual evidence to support starting the school year on Aug. 6 rather than a later date. Dr. Jeff Smith, assistant superintendent of Cabell County Public Schools, said the early date is due to a one week long Thanksgiving break and a two week long Christmas break. Thanksgiving break was chosen to be a week long due to the influx of students and teachers who miss days due to hunting season. In 2011, 13.4 percent of students were absent the day before Thanksgiving, in 2010 16.6 percent of students were absent the day before Thanksgiving and in 2009, 10.8 percent of students were absent the day before Thanksgiving. Employees had similar absence rates, with 683 absences the day before Thanksgiving in the three years combined. "When you look at the number of absentees and the number of substitutes, it is difficult for the substitutes to carry on the same standard of education the teacher would have," said William Smith, superintendent. "The continuity of instruction is one of the most important things." The calendar proposal was developed by a calendar committee led by Lenora Richardson, Director of Assessment and Curriculum for Cabell County Schools. The committee included three representatives from the central office, five high school representatives, two middle school representatives and three elementary representatives. Representatives included a mix of teachers/administrators, students and parents.

Band Under Surveillance releases CD A band with strong local roots has released a new CD and plans to play several local venues in the upcoming months. Under Surveillance is a 1980s influenced, self-described “power pop” band. The group recently released “Between the Lines” featuring core members Philip Hatfield (songwriter/guitarist) and Randy Brown (drummer), with new vocalist John Mullins and bassist Phil “X” Crace. Hatfield, a Hurricane resident, said the band has its origins in the early 1980s, with Brown and Hatfield going back to the late ’70s, and those two formerly playing with Crace as part of the band The Score. Hatfield said critics are comparing “Between the Lines” to
groups like The Replacements, Cheap Trick, The Knack and The Shoes. According to Rudy Pannuci of Pop Cult, “The musicianship is crisp and punchy throughout ... One of the best things about ‘Between the Lines is that it doesn’t sound contemporary. This CD has more of a timeless quality...” Also, Lynne Sandy, former vocalist/guitarist from 1980s new wave powerhouse The Defectors, described Under Surveillance as a “determined and well-rehearsed band” with poignant lyrics, hard driving guitar riffs and thumping rhythm section, and vocal harmonies “that work together to produce their signature sound.” The CD is available on all
major digital distribution networks including iTunes, Spotify, Amazon MP3, Google Play, Xbox Music, Rhapsody, iHeartRadio and Shazam Digital. Locally the CD can be purchased for $12 at Budget Tapes and Records in Kanawha City and at the Fret-n-Fiddle in St. Albans. For information on live performances or other details on the band, check out their Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/w vundersurveillance Hatfield, Brown and Crace are lifelong friends, and all have played in bands over the past three decades. Under Surveillance released a new CD and plans to play at several local venues in the coming months.

the same time." The proposed calendar will start Aug. 6 and end May 28. According to data provided by
Smith, the start date has crept slowly closer to the beginning of August, with 2010 - 2014 start dates being Aug. 26, Aug. 19, Aug. 15, Aug. 13 and Aug. 8, respectively. The proposed calendar was voted on by teachers and the central office, with the central office being the only group to favor a different calendar. "If you look at the numbers, over half the staff voted on it," said Past President Dennis Chapman, Cabell County Education Alliance. "Contrary to popular belief, the teachers do discuss what they vote on before the vote. There are things the teachers consider that not many, not even the parents, consider." Other than the calendar, the board had reduction in force (RIF) on its mind. The board approved the automatic transfers of 24 teachers for the upcoming school year in order to prevent them from losing their jobs. In past years, the board was required to take their jobs and then allow them to bid on upcoming vacancies, but a new state law allowed central office to place them automatically. "During the last meeting, you approved RIF and transfers for next year," said Todd Alexander, assistant superintendent. "This will fill a lot of vacancies. This is where we're placing them now, but of course, in the future, they have the right to bid on other jobs." Combined, there are 10 teachers and service personnel who will be a part of RIF this year. Traditionally, they have been given first priority when any positions open up. Alexander said this number is much less than previous years. The Cabell County Board of Education meets on the first and third Tuesday of every month at 5:30 p.m. All meetings are open to the public.

West Virginia Legislative Update By Del. Carol Miller Cabell District 16 The last week of the regular session was filled with long evenings and nights at the Capitol as the Legislature considered several bills before the clock struck midnight on Saturday. Two bills that received the most attention in the House the last week of session were the water bill and the pseudoephedrine bill. The water bill, as passed by the Senate, would do a number of things including establish the Aboveground Storage Tank Water Protection Act. This Act would require registration of aboveground storage tanks and would direct the Secretary of the West Virginia DEP to write rules to develop a program to regulate new and existing aboveground storage tanks. It would also require that storage containers must be annually inspected to ensure that they are structurally sound. When the House received the bill, it was the intention to make sure that the bill that was passed would be one of substance so that an incident like the one that occurred in January would not happen again. As stated previously, the bill was sent to three House committees; Health and Human Resources, Judiciary, and Finance. After many experts, long committee meetings, and a long floor session, the House amended and passed the water bill. The bill passed by the House goes a little further than the Senate’s version by adding new requirements for medical monitoring, early detection technology at water plants, protection plans against pollutants in drinking water supplies and new oversight for above-
ground storage tanks. Amendments adopted on the floor included: * Long-term medical study of the residents affected by January’s chemical leak which will be conducted by the West Virginia Bureau for Public Health. * All public water utilities in the state serving more than 100,000 customers would be required to install and monitor for containments by the same detection capabilities utilized by the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission. The water bill went back to the Senate where the Senate agreed to the changes made by the House. The water bill will now go to the Governor. Once it is signed, the bill will officially go into effect. The pseudoephedrine bill was another bill the House took much time on considering not only in committee but also on the floor. The bill that passed the Senate would require pseudoephedrine be prescription only. The House passed a version of the bill that would allow counties to hold a referendum as to whether they would require pseudoephedrine as prescription only or to remain over-the-counter. The Senate did not concur to the House’s version and the bill went to a conference committee made up of three Senators and three Delegates. However, the bill died in the last hour of the session. The regular session may have ended but the legislature has one more important matter to attend to and that is the state’s budget. As always, I will continue to keep you apprised of what is going on as the legislature begins work on the state’s budget.

Velma’sView By Velma Kitchens Who do you trust? I feel really bad for all of you who are still having water issues because of the chemical spill in the Elk River. Here in Culloden the water is fine - I guess(?) Our hot water no longer smells, but on occasion it does. No one will ever be sure the water is safe,
but we can use some common sense. If your water still has a smell, I would not drink it. I did talk to some people who took showers all the time there was a no use order. I heard someone say that the chemical just might be the new fountain of youth! Since no one
seems to know anything about the chemical, nothing about the long-term effects of the chemical, nothing about the reactions people have had with the burning skin and one lady said her hair turned colors. Since no one on this earth can tell us for sure what it is, who in this world compiled this chemical and what was the use? Some say drink, others say use your own judgment. Well, I guess you can tell what most are doing, they are not drinking it. I guess we are fortunate we live down river of the water plant, but then again who do you trust?
where heat indexes reach 120 degrees? No shoes and barefoot all the day. I think God places us where he wants us to be, to do what he wants us to do for other mankind. Romans 8:28 - And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. We are not all teachers of his word, that’s not what he wants. You may have helped someone in this past snow storm fix a tire or maybe got them help in some way. And that was doing God’s work. Like the man who passed in his truck as another man walking on the road in this cold, wearing no shoes, just garbage bags wrapped around his feet. The driver returned with shoes and a coat to offer, only to be hastily refused, but the driver did
what God wanted him to do. We need to pray for those souls who have been so hurt by others in the world that they are heart and mind sick. How do you measure up in God eyes? Not everyone reads the bible or knows who God is; as a result, we live in an age of misinformation about who God is. There are enough churches within every few miles, but still they are not filled. Places we could learn of his forgiveness and security and gift of eternal life. Let the snow continue to blow - less and less we hope. Because we know just under that white crust lays the dainty purple crocus ready to peep out and the age old, long slender green leaves of bright yellow daffodils. We will so eagerly welcome them once again to watch as they bob and move their heads, almost as if to say come on sunshine warm me up. Spring - you can surely smell it… soon as this snow all melts away. Prayer: It been a long winter season this year Father, we thank you, that you may send the most beautiful springtime just ahead. Amen.
While Morrison’s knowledge of computers and the library system will be missed, it is her friendly disposition and kindliness that her colleagues will miss the most. “We’ll miss her sense of humor,” Willa Midkiff added. “She is our family.” “She would do anything for us,” added Ellie Baumgardner. Although she will be retired, Morrison will certainly be keeping busy. She is a lover of animals, and has several different types of pets to care for. In addition to her pets, she and her husband Dale sell a variety of items on eBay. Morrison also spends a lot of her spare time with arts and crafts. She quilts, draws, paints, and even carves eggshells with a high-speed drill. Her most recent project involved an ostrich egg, which she purchased online. Morrison said she will miss the people associated with the library
the most. “The people I work with are family, the people that come in are like family,” she said. “I love them all. I don’t think all of this is going to sink in until a couple weeks from now.” The Barboursville Public Library is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays, with more than 40,000 books, videos, DVDs, CDs, magazines and newspapers. In addition, it offers free Internet access, notary services, and fax and copier services for patrons. Morrison’s outstanding service to the library’s many patrons over the years was evident, but it was the effect of the library system on her that she considers more profound. “I do love the library system,” she concluded. “It’s been a wonderful place to work.”
WeeklyDevotional By Mary Jane “Snow, snow, let it blow” Thought for the week: Proverbs 3:13 - Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. This has been the worst winter in WV... since March 1872, according to records. We have the weather to talk about; less sunshine and more confinement has made us a bit irate, when we don’t need to be. Soon the snow will all go away for another year. Soon the days will be lighter and the sun will shine brighter - warming us up, giving us a happier outlook on coming days. I’ve often thought about a friend whose husband was in the military stationed in Alaska for years… with short days and long cold nights every day for eight months out of the year. They became adapted to it. Did you ever think what if you had been born and lived in Africa

LIBRARY FROM PAGE 1 “It’s a lot of fun,” she said. “When I first started, there were no computers, and now we have several computers with Internet access for our patrons. We are open for more hours now (until 7 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday), which is an improvement because we have a lot of people who like to come in in the evening.” Morrison’s colleagues at the library noted that her aptitude with computers was exceptional, as well as her knowledge of the various references and topics housed in the library. “She’s very smart,” said Cindy Hull. “She knows the computers better than anyone I know. She’s like a detective, always searching out ways to solve things” “She knows all the references,” added Heather Blackburn, “and she’s not afraid to break anything on the computer (by hitting a button).”

Police report featured in Milton City Council meeting By Brian Harper For The Cabell Standard
Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito talks about the need for the remaining stretch of U.S. 35 in Putnam and Mason counties widened and finished as a four-lane highway. Capito rode the 14.6-mile two-lane with Joe Stanley, a truck driver trainer for Con-way Freight in Belle.
Capito calls for completion of U.S. 35 upgrades By Kelly Stadelman firstname.lastname@example.org
Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito wants to see the remaining stretch of U.S. 35 in Putnam and Mason counties widened and finished as a four-lane highway. A member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Capito said she knows that funding is the biggest obstacle to upgrading the road. “I’m going to push to make sure we get funding and get the road completed,” she said Friday. “When you are up on a truck you can really see how dangerous the two-lane road can be.” Capito was speaking from experience. Prior to meeting with Putnam County Commissioners and media, she rode the 14.6-mile two-lane with Joe Stanley, a truck driver trainer for Con-way Freight in Belle. “I learned a lot about truck safety from Joe during our trip,” she said. “You can have all the safety features you want on a truck, but if you don’t have a safe highway it does no good.” U.S. 35 is the primary artery from Columbus, Ohio, to Charleston for tractor-trailers. “The percentage of truck traffic on the road is above average,” Capito said. “Anytime you have more trucks on a two-lane road, the visual is different and the road is more dangerous. I learned that on a four-lane you don’t have that. “When you are going 55 mph in a truck on a two-lane and have a truck coming at you, you have a different feeling than when you are in a car.” In addition to being concerned for drivers, she also expressed concern for children. “The two-lane is also a bus route and a safety hazard for our
kids,” she said. Stanley said after settling on a radio station, he spoke with Capito about the old two-lane during the drive from Point Pleasant to Winfield. “We talked about the road and the need for it to be improved,” he said noting that Con-way puts about 50 trucks a day on Route 35. “Our drivers have no way to get out of the way on the two-lane if there is a problem. There is no shoulder or place for trucks to go.” He also echoed Capito’s concerns about the dangers for tractor-trailers on the unfinished portion of U.S. 35. “It doesn't matter if you have the best drivers and best technology in a truck,” he said. “If you put them on a road that should have been improved 30 years ago, it’s dangerous.” The state Division of Highways has estimated it would take $187 million to complete the road. Capito said that she is currently working to get federal money for West Virginia highways. “With the gas tax declining because of more efficient vehicles on the road, it means the trust fund is not as large,” she said. Jan Vineyard, president of West Virginia Trucking Association, said the state has tried to make the two-lane safer by installing rumble strips and improving bridges on the old stretch. “The upgrading of 35 is something that everyone can agree needs to be done,” she said. The Republican congresswoman, who currently representing the 2nd District, is expected to face Democrat Secretary of State Natalie Tennant in November’s general election for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Jay Rockefeller.
The 2013 Milton Police Department’s annual report highlighted the most recent meeting of the Milton City Council. Council met March 4 amidst the most recent rash of bad weather to hit the area. After Mayor Tom Canterbury called the meeting to order, the first item of business was the discussion of payment of several bills owed by the city. City Recorder Phyllis Kirtley Smith read the amounts of the various bills, and the motion to approve the funds for payment was passed by the council. Next, Milton City Police Chief Chuck Zerkle presented the 2013 Police Report of the Milton Police Department, which included various statistics and details that the
police department encountered last year. “I found several interesting things in the report,” Zerkle said as he presented the report. He noted that the Milton Police Department was dispatched for a total of 4,442 calls in 2013, a staggering number considering there are only five full-time officers. Zerkle also pointed out that the number of dispatches exceeded the number of West Virginia State Police dispatches in Milton, which totaled around 3,000 calls. “It’s not all bad things,” Zerkle concluded, stating that the number of calls increased by 25 percent in 2013. The council then approved the report. Canterbury next displayed the award given to the city by the Cabell County Commission for its response efforts during the recent
water crisis. The mayor showed the commemorative plaque that was presented to the city by the commission, and read aloud the letter of thanks from the county. The final item of business on the agenda was the announcement of several upcoming events taking place in Milton over the next few weeks. Among the events named by Canterbury included: the Old Tire Take Back event, the Milton Rotary Spaghetti Dinner, and the United Wrestling Association event presented by the Milton Volunteer Fire Department. With the items of business concluded, Canterbury adjourned the meeting. Milton City Council will have its next meeting on Tuesday, March 18. Meetings are open to the public.
Skiing conditions excellent this spring West Virginia’s ski areas, after enduring perfect winter conditions, are relishing in perfect spring skiing conditions. The mountains of West Virginia have received over 12 feet of natural snow this season and temperatures have been perfect for snowmaking operations. The official first day of spring is only a few days away and West Virginia Ski Resorts continue to provide the most open terrain of any state in the southeast or mid-Atlantic regions. The reason is the snowmaking capabilities at West Virginia Ski Resorts. This winter’s cold weather has allowed the resorts’ snowmakers to make snow around the clock this season thereby providing excellent
snow conditions. The resort’s snowmakers use the cold temperatures to create manmade blizzards, producing 20,000 tons of snow per hour when the temperature drops into the teens (when combining all five resort’s snowmaking efforts at once), that’s enough snow to cover a football field with twenty feet of snow each hour. Due to that, the ski slopes continue to be covered in the mountains of West Virginia. The mountain state’s resorts have experienced an up tick in visitation this season, as skiers and snowboarders in the Southeast’s metro areas have seen snow all winter, keeping their minds on winter sports. Skiers and snowboarders have come
g n i t r a St Now!
to rely on West Virginia ski resorts to provide excellent conditions when weather conditions permit and this spring skiing season is going to be no exception. There is still a few more weeks of skiing, riding and tubing left and the conditions are fantastic in the mountains of West Virginia. The ski and snowboard season is expected to last through the first week of April. The five-month long ski season in West Virginia has an estimated economic impact of over $250 million and 5000 jobs at the resorts.

Christian's Sports Beat: Behind the scenes with a story teller
By: Christian Deiss
When most people watch sporting events they are either in the stands or in front of their televisions, which is usually how I watch sports. Recently I got a got a chance to go behind the scenes for the Mountain State Athletic Conference (MSAC) Boys and Girls Basketball Championships, as my dad’s company, The Media Center, was broadcasting the games live on his company’s internet sports website, RNR Sports from the South Charleston Community Center. My dad, Joe Stevens, served as the courtside reporter during both the Spring Valley Timberwolves vs. the George Washing-
ton Patriots girls contest and the South Charleston Black Eagles vs. the Woodrow Wilson Flying Eagles and I was his floor director throughout both games. Directing and producing the games was my dad’s partner Dan Shreve. I already know why my dad likes sports broadcasting, so I wanted to know what made broadcasting sports interesting for Shreve, “It’s an untold story, as the game develops, it’s not like something has been pre-produced, no one knows how it’s going to come out. Tonight was a perfect example of that because each team got up a little and down a little bit, it was a see-saw battle and nobody knew when the clock went to zero who was going to win.” In the boys match-up, South Charleston edged Woodrow Wilson in an exciting overtime game, 92–86; in the girls game, Spring Valley topped GW, 73-59. My responsibilities during the evening’s broadcast were making sure all of the people my dad was scheduled to interview was in place at the right time. At halftime and at the end of the games I had to run onto the court get the leading coaches at halftime
RECIPE OF THE WEEK:
and the winning coaches at the buzzer. I was a little nervous about my role but Shreve explained everything I needed to do, which calmed me down, because I have done on-field interviews with coaches during the high school football season, “Things would not happen if it wasn’t for the floor director, they pull things - including the interviews together - because everyone is so busy with other things we need the floor director to be the other eyes and ears to get things done and on the air.” During the live courtside interviews, I also served as camera security making sure nobody walked in front of the camera. There were 12 people on the crew. Shreve and Stevens are veterans of the media relations world, with over 70 years of experience between them. Shreve was a Vice President and General Partner of a Video Production company in Charleston for over 20 years after a stint as a news photographer and production in TV news. Stevens was Director of Communications at Snowshoe Mountain Resort for 15 years with another 15 years prior to that in Richmond, Virginia newsrooms. When it comes to production, Shreve is an awarding winning
Christian behind the scenes observing Dan Shreve direct and produce the recent MSAC Basketball Championship. photographer and producer and has had projects that have aired worldwide. Shreve told me he considers himself a story teller, “I feel like I have been doing this type of thing all my life, because when I was eight or nine my dad gave me a still camera and I started telling stories using that camera. Then my cousin and I would do little movies, writing the scripts and my dad would buy us some film and we would go out and shoot it. So I guess
you can say I have wanted to do this pretty much all my life.” Shreve once rented the entire Shea Stadium in New York City to produce a commercial that featured former Marshall quarterback Chad Pennington. So the next time you watch a sporting event just know there are a lot of people that are behind the scenes doing their best to bring you the coverage of the event and I just might be one of those crew members.

Martin of Ravenswood.
Rahall meets with W.Va. Veterans WASHINGTON, D.C. – In a meeting last week with the West Virginia Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) delegation, U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) lauded the service and sacrifice of West Virginia veterans, and praised Medal of Honor recipient Woody Williams and all veterans’ advocates for their unwavering commitment to the men and women of our nation’s military.
“When the promise to leave no soldier behind is kept without fail on the hallowed battlefields upon which our veterans fought, how can we do any less than to keep that promise in the halls of Congress?” said Rahall. “In my estimate, we can never repay the sacred debt our nation owes our veterans and I will continue to champion the veteran, our military retirees and their families,”
said Rahall. Rahall has been active and vocal in supporting expanded and enhanced services and benefits for West Virginia veterans. Most recently, he supported and voted in favor of legislation to protect veterans’ programs from budget cuts and improve Post9/11 GI Bill education benefits for veterans and their families, both VFW priorities.

LADY KNIGHTS FROM PAGE 1 “We weren’t really meshing in the first half,” an ecstatic Stephenson said after the game. “But in the second half, we adjusted and started attacking gaps. I wasn’t really thinking, I just found myself open and shot.” The game was back and forth all night, especially in the first half. The Lady Knights took an early lead, getting several good looks through the high post on offense and forcing the Lady Red Dragons with a full-court press on defense. However, senior forward Jordan picked up two early fouls in the first, which limited her for much of the half. St. Albans came back with physical, harassing defense that stifled the Midland attack, and the game was tied at 11 after one. The Lady Knights went with a smaller lineup in the second quarter, continuing to force turnovers and errant passes. The teams traded the lead back and forth throughout the quarter, but St. Albans took a 23-19 lead into halftime. Before Midland’s big third quarter spark, they found themselves on the wrong end of a quick 5-0 run by the Lady Red
Dragons. After a quick timeout by the Lady Knights, they took over on defense, forcing several key stops and turnovers that gave them a 35-34 lead going into the fourth quarter. Stephenson and Haggerty struck again with back-to-back three pointers to open the fourth quarter with a 6-0 run by the Lady Knights. St. Albans battled back, going into desperation mode on defense. The Lady Red Dragons went to a full-court man-to-man defense, but the Lady Knights withstood the pressure, breaking the press several times for layups, and made things difficult for St. Albans on the defensive end. The Lady Red Dragons went cold toward the end of the game, and were forced to foul to stop the clock. Although the Lady Knights struggled from the free throw line, they made them when they had to, and were able to stretch the lead and run out the clock for a 52-42 win. “We knew we were in for a battle,” Coach Matt Adkins said after the game. “Our sophomore guards played well. I’m just proud of my girls.”
Sophomore guard Summer Stephenson goes to the basket for two of her 15 points in the game against St. Albans. Stephenson led the Lady Knights with 15 points, while Emily Pitkin added 12, and Jordan pitched in with 10 points. Haggerty also had all nine of her points in the second half. Lexie Cooper and Breanna Propst each had nine points for the Lady Red Dragons. “I’m proud of our team,” Stephenson said. “We played hard and I’m just happy we pulled

Photos by One-Eyed Jack Photography it out.” With the win, the Lady Knights avenge a loss to St. Albans earlier this season, and now look toward bigger and better things at the state tournament. Still, the win
feels good for the senior laden squad. “My four seniors came in together as a crew,” Adkins said. “I’m just happy for them, I’m happy for my whole team.”

Knights beat Lincoln County, fall to Huntington High By Brian Harper For The Cabell Standard
The best part about tournament basketball is that the slate from the regular season is wiped clean. That was especially true for the Cabell Midland Knights, who finished the regular season with a 418 record. None of that mattered, though, as the Knights opened sectional tournament play March 5 with a 68-48 victory over the Lincoln County Panthers. Midland controlled the game throughout. “I thought we came out motivated,” said Knights Coach Matt Stead, “We wanted to win tonight." Cabell Midland began the game strongly and jumped out to a 6-0 lead. The Knights’ ball movement was crisp and led to many open looks early on. The Panthers battled back midway through the first quarter with outside shooting, but they could not sustain any consistent pressure on offense. Defensively, the Knights utilized a full court press that forced several Panther turnovers that led to some easy baskets. The Knights also heavily outrebounded the Panthers in the first, and led 16-12 at the end of the quarter. The Panthers continued to struggle offensively in the second quarter, turning the ball over to the Knights on a few early possessions. Cabell Midland’s half court defense was also stellar, as they con-
Keegan Adkins had 10 points in the Knights sectional game against Lincoln. File Photo tested a majority of Lincoln County’s shots. After Midland stretched its lead to nine points, the Panthers tried to slow down the momentum with a timeout, but the Knights were able to close the quarter with a 13-4 run and led 34-23 at halftime. During the third quarter, the Knights picked up right where they left off, using a 10-2 run that

Reserve Champion Ham, shown by Andrew Linville, was purchased by John Wilson of Putnam County Bank.
Brooke Holley, showing the Grand Champion Bacon, is pictured with buyer Andy Nelson of Nelson’s Custom Meats. SALE FROM PAGE 1 The old record was set in 2008 when $3,000 was paid for a Grand Champion ham exhibited by Andrew Linville. Farm boys and girls, commitment, hard worker and good work ethics are just a few of the words heard from folks as they described the boys and girls participating in the sale. So much work is put into each project. "This is a worthwhile event, a learning process for the kids, said Anita Robinson, Ham Bacon and Egg Committee member and Town & Country 4-H leader. “The committee gives guidance and direction along with suggestions. But, it's the kids who do the work. "As a committee we are thankful to all of the supporters... we get a lot of support." Linville, a Town and Country 4H and Cabell Midland FFA member, has participated in the sale for the past 12 years. The 19-yearold said his older sister, Tabitha, along with several cousins are the ones who got him involved with the program. The money Linville raised at the sale will go toward his education, with a little money going to purchase parts for his truck, he said. He is the son of Michelle Linville of Milton. Jonathan Black, son of Jeff and Kim Black of Milton, is a senior at Cabell Midland High School, a member of the Ridge Runners 4H and the Cabell Midland FFA. During the sale, he was named
the 2014 Scholarship winner. Rich Sherman, Cabell County Extension Agent, presented the scholarship. "My cousin was in the project and helped me get started," Black said. He said any money that he made at the sale will go to further his education but he will put back a little extra to purchase a steer for the 2014 Cabell County Fair. Chloe Irwin, Ridge Runners 4H Club member, was enjoying her first year at the sale. "I got into it through my sister, Faith," she said. The Irwin sisters are the daughters of Kevin and Staci Irwin of Culloden. Lincoln County senior Marie Brumfield said her first year at the Ham Bacon and Egg Sale was fun. "I really wanted to do this project,” she said. “My Ag teacher, Ashley Butler, got me into it and I've liked it." Brumfield has participated in Lincoln County FFA for four years. She said money raised at the sale will go for her education as she plans to go to college after graduation. She has applied for and been accepted to Marshall. She said she also plans to purchase a feeder steer to take to the 2014 Cabell County Fair. Brumfield is the daughter of Russell and Michele Brumfield of Branchland. Projects began in October 2013.

Meat participants have the option of raising their own pig or buying a pig and having it delivered to Andy's Custom Meats. By doing this, it lets participants that do not live on a farm participate. They cut the meat from the side of the hog, then learn the salting process to preserve the meat,
smoke the meat and trim each piece to its final shape. The meat participants do a minimum of 70% of the work to prepare the meat. The Ham, Bacon and Egg project helps 4-H and FFA members have a better understanding of the business of agriculture, improves their marketing skills, and teaches them a basic knowledge of record keeping.

MU starts basketball radio program Schray named 2013 Professor of the Year
A new high school sports radio program that began recently from the studios of WMUL-FM on Marshall University’s Huntington campus has gained listeners from across the Mountain State. The Fast Break Sports Network’s Basketball Friday Night in West Virginia runs from 9 p.m. to midnight every Friday night during the high school basketball season. Hosts Ryan Epling, Ric Morrone, James Collier, Rudi Raynes and guests provide fans with continual score updates, interviews and analysis of the evening’s games along with a review of games played earlier in the week. “The FM 88 sports staff was approached with the idea of helping create a program for high school basketball and making it available to radio stations throughout West Virginia earlier this year,” said Dr. Chuck Bailey, faculty manager of WMUL-FM and a full-time RadioTelevision Production and Management professor. “Everyone at WMUL-FM is excited to be part of it.” Epling is the main host of the
show, which runs weekly through March 21. He is a graduate of Marshall and has been the voice of the Wayne High School Pioneers since he was 16. Morrone is in his 21st year as head coach of the Tolsia Lady Rebels’ basketball team. A graduate of Marshall, Morrone is employed by the Wayne County Board of Education as both a coach and educator. Collier is sports director for WMUL-FM. He provides play-byplay and color commentary for eight Marshall sports. Raynes is a former West Virginia all-state basketball player and coach at Poca High School. She earned a degree in broadcast journalism at Concord University and went on to become an award-winning news anchor for WCHS-TV. Participants agree that a statewide basketball program is long overdue. “I’ve coached basketball for 24 years,” Morrone said, “and until now there has not been a place where high school basketball enthusiasts could come together. It
is good to do a program that encompasses the whole state. Everyone is dedicated to making this a success and Ryan does a great job as the main host.” Epling said the program is caller-driven and “has filled a void in our state.” “This program celebrates high school sports with folks who have the same interests in the games as we do,” he said. Bailey added, “WFGH in Fort Gay supplies most of the equipment for the networking of the stations, it provides the laptops, and the station management there provides the affiliate contacts. This is not just WMUL-FM’s program alone.” Lynn Hurt, superintendent of Wayne County Schools, said they are excited the partnership between Marshall University’s WMUL and Wayne County’s WFGH has created such a popular broadcasting program for the entire state. “Wayne County is very proud to help provide a platform where all the school systems of West Virginia can collaborate,” she said.
The Faculty Merit Foundation presented the 2013 Professor of the Year award to Kateryna A.R. Schray, Ph.D., English professor for the Marshall University College of Liberal Arts, during a banquet held in the Great Hall of the Culture Center in Charleston on Tuesday evening. Schray received a B.A. in both German and English from La Salle University, an M.A. in British Literature from Georgetown University, and a Ph.D. in English from the University of North CarolinaChapel Hill. She has been teaching at Marshall University since 1996. The University previously awarded Professor Schray with its top two awards: the Hedrick Outstanding Faculty Award in 2013 and the Reynolds Outstanding Teaching Award in 2009. According to MU Provost and Senior Vice President Dr. Gayle Ormiston, “Dr. Schray is well recognized for her gift of connecting with students of diverse backgrounds and motivating them to achieve the highest levels of per-
Kateryna A.R. Schray, Ph.D. formance. The impact of her contributions to the University, its students, and the broader community Marshall serves is without question significant.” The foundation each year honors an outstanding faculty member at a West Virginia college or university. The award winner receives a $10,000 cash prize, with smaller awards to the other finalists. The Professor of the Year award is presented with financial support from United Bank.

A Huntington man was sentenced to four years in federal prison for his role in a heroin distribution conspiracy, announced United States Attorney Booth Goodwin. Forty-nine-year-old Rickey Ray Rockwell previously pleaded guilty in November 2013 to conspiracy to distribute heroin before Chief United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers in Huntington federal court, Booth said. Between Nov. 2010 and July 2011, Rockwell participated with convicted felons Kevin Luthor Robinson and Jermaine D. Dickerson to distribute heroin in and around the Huntington area, Booth said. According to the report, Rockwell told police that during the illegal drug scheme, he controlled the door to a Huntington residence that was primarily used as a place to distribute illegal drugs. Rockwell also completed illegal heroin transactions on behalf of Robinson and Dickerson, Booth said. Afterward, Rockwell gave the drug proceeds to his co-conspirators at the completion of the drug transactions. Robinson, 44, was sentenced to
11 years and three months in prison in March 2013 for his role in the illegal drug conspiracy and Dickerson, 36, was also sentenced in March 2013 to 15 years and nine months in federal prison, Booth said. Robinson and Dickerson, both of Columbus, previously pleaded guilty in December 2012 to conspiracy to distribute heroin and 28 grams or more of crack cocaine, according to the report. According to the report during the scheme, Robinson and Dickerson arranged frequent trips to Columbus to purchase heroin and cocaine. The illegal drugs were then brought to Huntington and sold, Booth said. The defendants also utilized several Huntington residences to store, prepare and package illegal drugs during the fall of 2010 through July 2011, Booth said. This case was investigated by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration, the Huntington Police Department, and the Appalachia High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force. Assistant United States Attorney Joseph F. Adams handled the prosecution.

Rhythm in Red Show Choir hosts big event By Heather Barker For The Cabell Standard
Hundreds of show choir members, stage crew workers and family members gathered at Cabell Midland High School to take part in the 2014 Rhythm in Red Show Choir Invitational. The school was jam packed Feb. 22 with 10 schools ready to take home a Grand Champion award. To accommodate so many people, classrooms at the school were opened to each of the competing show choirs to act as a dressing room and resting area. Though hectic, Rhythm in Red Show Choir members were there to help control the commotion and assist the visiting show choirs. “Each show choir member was assigned to a host room to make all the groups that come to the competition feel welcome,” said show choir member Autumn Diehl. “They decorate the rooms, they baked lots of baked goods for the rooms and concessions and we do star grams, which are like flowers from fans which are then delivered to the rooms.” Like most other show choir competitions, all schools entered performed once then were judged down to the final six. Those final six performed their shows again for the judges to decide who the Grand Champion would be. Though Cabell Midland’s show
Reigning state champions, Rhythm in Red Show Choir took home a grand champion award from the Poca Music Fest on Feb. 1. The ensemble hosted an invitational for area show choirs on Feb. 22. choir did not compete because they were the hosts, they did give a performance right before the awards ceremony. The Rhythm in Red Show Choir recently took home a Grand Champion award from the Poca Music Fest on Feb. 1 and won
Best Choreography, Best Vocals and Best Combo Band. As reigning State Grand Champions, members have been pushing themselves and setting their sights on another State Championship. “It’s not really one specific
group that we are rivals with, we’re just against everybody. We’re our biggest rival,” said show choir member Hannah Martin. “To improve, we have people come in and watch us and critique us. We also practice every day at lunch and every Tuesday,
Thursday and Friday after school.” The Cabell Midland Show Choir was back in action at Fairfield High School’s show choir competition on Saturday and will compete in the State Championship on March 15.
Energy Management Program saves Cabell School millions Cabell County Schools’ Energy Management Program has saved the district in excess of $6 million during the last 11 years. The program, which works to reduce energy consumption in all Cabell County district facilities, is coordinated by a full-time Energy Manager. The manager works to monitor utility usage and to educate staff members and students about resource saving measures.
By saving money on utilities, the district is able to divert funds to instructional programs. “In my opinion, the most important result of the program is being able to help the district fund investments in instructional programs and technology for students,” said John McMillan, Energy Manager for Cabell County Schools. “I’m very proud of the staff and students for all they do
to assist me in managing our utility consumption.” McMillan says the premise of the program is simple. He focuses on teaching staff and students about the importance of turning off energy-consuming devices at the end of the school day or when not in use. This includes computers, lighting, copiers, classroom refrigerators, coffee makers, microwaves, and other small appli-

ances. He also works with principals and custodians to make sure heating and air is only used when the building is occupied, and that water fountains, water heaters, and other fixtures are shut down when school is not in session.In addition, McMillan studies utility bills daily and works to alleviate any problems or usage spikes that may occur. By studying these
bills, he can project the district’s cost avoidance on a monthly basis, and provide reports to Central Office staff and principals at their monthly meeting. “It is our obligation to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars, and the Energy Management program affords us that opportunity.” For information about the Energy Management program, please contact McMillan at 528-5342.
