Local Musician Climbs Ladder of Success By Justin Waybright

MILTON - Ashton Ernst is making it big in music. The 23-year-old country music singer is a household name in the state. For more than 10 years, she’s wowed crowds at the Pumpkin Festival. Now, she’s taking her talents to the home of country music: Nashville, Tennessee. “Music is and has always been my passion,” said Ernst. “Country music is in my blood.” The nationally-known musician got inspired at a young age while watching her father play drums and sing professionally. Parents built a small studio in their house for Ernst to practice.

The love and drive for music stardom blossomed from there. After high school, the young woman began singing on local radio stations and performing in honky-tonks throughout Nashville. Recently, she signed to an independent label. Ernst’s style is undeniably country. Her vocals flow like the West Virginia streams and creeks where she once lived. The music is upbeat and catchy. Ernst dreams of one day performing with her favorite country superstars and singing at the famous Grand Ol’ Opry. “I will never stop pursuing my ultimate dream of performing on the Grand Ol’ Opry,” she said.

Milton Police Unveils Newest Weapon By Justin Waybright



l Volume 115 l Issue 20

MILTON - Police officers have a new weapon in their fight against crime: a new twin-turbo, 365-horsepower V-6 Ford Taurus Interceptor. With custom suspension and engine specs, the machine is a far cry from the typical Crown Victoria officers are used to driving. In a pursuit, there will be no competition. The raw power and torque of this machine is enough to run down virtually any offender’s car. The all-black, all-wheel-drive

It’s one police upgrade Mayor Tom Canterbury is happy to have. “It looks great and it’s one of the many things we have planned for the city,” he said. Milton was awarded a $14,000 CPG (community participation grant) plus a $25,000 donation from Ohio Valley Bank in January. Portions of the fund provided the new police cruiser, and the rest will cover a new sign toward the west end of the city. “Ohio Valley Bank really hit a home run with this one,” said Canterbury. “In three years, the SEE POLICE ON PAGE 4

Manchin Welcomes West Virginia Veterans to Washington West Virginia’s third “Always Free Honor Flight” brings 31 veterans of World War II, Korean and Vietnam Wars to D.C. Manchin hosts a welcome reception for veterans to honor their service WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) proudly welcomed 31 veterans from West Virginia to the nation’s capital for the state’s third “Always Free Honor Flight” in less than a year. The veterans visited the capital free of cost to see the memorials built in their honor. Eleven served in World War II, one in World War II and Korea, 10 in Korea, one in Korea and Vietnam, four in Vietnam, and two in all three wars. Two other veterans served as escorts for the group, along with three high school ROTC cadets. “It is such an honor to welcome these brave servicemen to Washington today,” Senator Manchin said. “West Virginia is one of the most patriotic states in this great nation, and we will continue to honor the growing number of veterans and active duty members who have served our great country with valor and distinction. Showing our appreciation to the men and women who have served this nation is something we should do each and every day. But today is a special day for us to pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our great nation.” The Honor Flight Network is a nationwide effort to ensure veterans have the opportunity to visit Washington, D.C. to see the monuments that were built to honor their service. The veterans will tour the Capitol, the World War II Memorial, the Korean War Memorial and the Vietnam War Memorial. The “Always Free Honor Flight” was established in West Virginia thanks to the Denver Foundation and Little Buddy

ans also met with other members of West Virginia’s Congressional Delegation. In addition to the welcome reception, Senator Manchin provided each veteran and guest with a Congressional Record Statement that was submitted into the record to recognize the veterans’ trip to D.C. In part, Senator Manchin wrote in the Congressional Record Statement: “I am filled with so much pride every time I meet our military veterans who come to the nation’s capital to visit the memorials built to honor them and to commemorate the wars in which they served so courageously. “Today, 31 veterans from West Virginia, representing three generations of warriors, are here to see the memorials that commemorate their sacrifice and valor and for a special ceremony honoring World War II veterans. “And on the occasion of their visit, I want to express my deepest gratitude to these special men who helped keep America free and made the world safer for liberty-loving people across our country and beyond our borders.”

Radio, located in Princeton. These nonprofit organizations were founded by Bob Denver – who played Gilligan on “Gilligan’s Island” – and his wife Dreama, a West Virginia native. Senator Manchin hosted a reception in the United States Capitol to welcome the 31 veterans and their escorts to D.C. He thanked the guardians, ROTC cadets and organizers who accompanied the veterans on their flight, including Dreama Denver, President of the Denver Foundation, Charlie Richardson, General Manager of Little Buddy Radio and Pam Coulbourne, “Always Free Honor Flight” coordinator.

By Mary Jane “MEMORIAL DAY” Thought for the week: Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15; 13 (KJV) Decoration Day is the day set aside for people to go visit their loved ones gravesite, and remember them by placing flowers on their graves. In earlier days, you picked what fresh flowers you had blooming in your yard, or you made flowers from what was called crepe paper. Some people were very creative at this - after making the flower and attaching a stem, it was dipped in wax to stiffen, this was before the silk, and plastic flowers were created. It was a day families and friends gathered. Most of the day was spent at the cemeteries, hav-

ing picnic lunch, and meeting with friends and family. It originated after the Civil War, to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers, who had died in the war. Then it was extended to honor all Americans, who gave their life in wars, becoming a national holiday in 1971, to be observed as Memorial Day on the last Monday of May, marking the beginning of the summer season. Now, it runs into a three day weekend, of various parades, and family holiday activities. Our President gives a speech, while placing a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Washington, D.C., the biggest car race in the nation –The Indianapolis 500 runs every Memorial Day.

The Cabell Standard For none of us liveth to himself and no man dieth to himself - Romans 13:7 While all across this country, at every small and large cemetery, the Military Corp present a ceremony, saluting those who have passed, usually, with one person playing the bugle instrument to a song called “TAPS” which is always a quiet, solemn and sad song - there are five verses to this song, but one verse is all that is played. The words are: Day is done, gone the sun, from the hills, from the lakes, from the skies, all is well, safely rest, God is nigh. Taps was originally played at night in the military branches, to remind those in the bunkers, time for lights out. A day of honor, set aside to remember and think, of all our loved ones, who have gone on. Psalm 33:12 - Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Prayer: God, our Father, May we always honor you. Amen.

State Tax Credits Available from Prestera Foundation HUNTINGTON, WV - Prestera Foundation for Behavioral Health Services, Inc. announces an additional allocation of tax credits for this year through the Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP) from the State of West Virginia. This is the first time Prestera Foundation’s request for additional tax credits has been awarded. These additional tax credits must be distributed by June 30, 2013. Donors who contribute a minimum of $500 to the Prestera Foundation are eligible to receive up to 50% of their donation in tax credits to reduce liability

for the Corporate Net Income Tax, Business Franchise Tax, or the Personal Income Tax. The total cost of the contribution may be lowered even further when used in conjunction with federal tax deductions for giving to charity. “This program allows donors to stretch the value of their charitable dollars while ensuring the longevity of high quality behavioral health services available to West Virginians,” reports Prestera’s Development Associate, Traci Fricke. Donations ensure Prestera Center’s longevity of high quality behavioral health

services regardless of ability to pay. While a tax deduction reduces the amount of total income on which taxes are based, a tax credit is used to reduce total tax liability. Generally, a tax credit is worth substantially more than a tax deduction. To learn how to take advantage of this program, contact Traci Fricke in Prestera’s Development Department, by phoning 304-525-7851 ext. 1510, or via email, Correspondence may be sent to Prestera Foundation, P.O. Box 2672, Huntington, WV 25726.

Velma’s View By Velma Kitchens George Jones George Jones passed away last week and his funeral service was today. We were saddened by this as I have known George Jones all my life. I remember when I was young; the radio station was always on a country music station. I listened to George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Buck Owens, Loretta Lynn, Conway Twitty, Barbara Mandrell, Donna Fargo, Jean Shepard, Jeannie Pruitt, Gene Watson, Larry Gatlin, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, June Carter, Bill Anderson, Dottie West, Kenny Rogers, Merle Haggard, Bobby Bare, Mel Tillis, Hank Locklin, Ray Price, Waylon Jennings, Dolly Parton, Reba, Connie Smith, Don Williams, Marty Robbins, and a host of other old timers. Now country is yelling and screaming and dancing and jerking and shaking and carrying on and not so country sounding. I don’t listen to country music now, but growing up I listened every day and learned a lot. I would listen to WSM in Nashville and the Grand Ole Opry. I had to wait until all the other little stations went off the air to hear the big stations - but I loved listening in. I learned a lot about the lives of the old time country people and how they worked really hard and enjoyed being allowed to sing. Most of the old timers were not stuck up like some of the new fangled people are. And I forgot to mention Roger Miller. He was so funny and talented. George Jones is and was the greatest country music legend of all time… anyone in country music would say the same.

sports in West Virginia, from one of the first golf clubs in America at Oakhurst Links to the Greenbrier Classic; from the first girls basketball championship in 1919 to post Title IX; from racially segregated sports to integrated teams; and from the days when West Virginia Wesleyan and Davis & Elkins beat the big boys in football to the championship teams at WVU, Marshall, West Virginia State and West Liberty. Hillside Fields explains how major national trends and events, as well as West Virginia’s economic, political, and demographic conditions, influenced the development of sports in the state. The story of the growth of sports in West Virginia is also a story of the tribulations, hopes, values and triumphs of a proud

people. Bob Barnett taught sport history at Marshall University in West Virginia for 35 years. He has published more than 300 articles in publications such as Saturday Evening Post, American National Biography, the Washington Post, Sports Heritage, and the Dallas Cowboy News, has been a section editor for the Journal of Sport History and the Encyclopedia of Appalachia, and has written two documentaries for West Virginia Public Television. Barnett is the author of Growing Up in the Last Small Town: A West Virginia Memoir. To order this title or to learn more about this book or any WVU Press title, visit or call (800) 621-2736.

State Higher Education System announces Research Mini-grants CHARLESTON, WV - Six faculty members at West Virginia public universities have received ‘mini-grants’ from the state to assist in preparing proposals with the goal of obtaining much larger research funding awards. The West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission’s Division of Science and Research announced Research Proposal Mini-Grants of $5,000 each to faculty at Concord Uni-

versity, Marshall University, West Virginia University, and West Virginia University Institute of Technology. The mini-grants provide replacement salary for an uninterrupted period of time for a faculty member to write research or research equipment proposals during the summer. Each winning faculty member agrees to submit a proposal for funding from an external agency or foundation as a re-

sult of obtaining the minigrant. The Research Proposal MiniGrants were awarded to: • Joseph Allen, Concord University; • Vagner Benedito, West Virginia University; • Deborah Chun, West Virginia University Institute of Technology; • Rosalyn Quinones, Marshall University; • John Rakus, Marshall Uni-

versity; and • Kaushlendra Singh, West Virginia University. Dr. Jan Taylor, the Commission’s Director of Research Programs, said “The Mini-Grant Program is an investment in research, education, and ultimately, in economic development. By allowing these faculty members the opportunity to concentrate on external research proposals, the State of West Virginia ultimately

may realize benefits well beyond its $30,000 investment.” The Research Proposal MiniGrants are funded by the West Virginia Research Challenge Fund, which lays the foundation for many of the state’s competitive grant programs.

Rahall: Resources for Small Business can help grow the economy HUNTINGTON, WV - At a symposium at Marshall University on Tuesday, April 30, U.S. Rep. Nick J. Rahall (D-WV ) brought together small business owners and entrepreneurs to help them learn more about available Federal resources that can spur job creation and innovation in southern West Virginia. “Especially in this tough economy, increasing access to affordable credit and technical assistance for our small business owners and entrepreneurs can pay handsome dividends for our communities. We can create

jobs and grow the economy by fostering public-private partnerships and taking full advantage of the Federal resources available, and I am actively working to do so,” said Rahall. Rahall invited representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and USDA Rural Development, as well as the Robert C. Byrd Institute for Advanced Flexible Manufacturing, TechConnect, and the Natural Capital Investment Fund, to participate in the Huntington symposium. Joining Rahall for the opening plenary session was

SBA Regional Administrator Natalia Olson-Urtegho and Judy McCauley, Director, SBA West Virginia District Office. Rahall, who has been a champion of the pioneering Rural Jobs Accelerator Grant Program, which aims to pool resources of Federal economic development agencies to develop niche sectors of the economy in southern West Virginia -- such as tourism, advanced manufacturing, and agribusiness -- highlighted the importance of leveraging local assets and making available technical assistance, access to

capital, and workforce training to small businesses and entrepreneurs. “There are a slew of business and job opportunities awaiting our entire region, with gamechangers like the Boy Scouts of America Reserve and the Hatfield and McCoy Trail System putting lasting roots down in our economy, opportunities are loudly knocking on our doors. The series of workshops I have launched today are designed to let entrepreneurs know what Federal help is available to assist them as they look to grow and

excel,” said Rahall. “In the future, our downtowns, commercial districts and industrial parks in the cyber and global economy can grow and operate centered around business and industry clusters. It makes sense in these austere times, because it really is about making the best use of our scarce resources, while taking advantage of the wealth of experience of entrepreneurs and our State’s workforce, as well as helping to increase access to common capital and marketing efforts,” said Rahall.

Cabell Midland Future Business Leader moves on to National Competition Cabell Midland High School's Future Business Leaders of America Club competed at the FBLA State Leadership Conference April 8 & 9 in Charleston. In addition to competitions, the students had the opportunity to hear from leading entrepreneurs in the state and attend various workshops regarding current business issues. Cabell Midland is very proud to announce that Nathanial Barker, a senior, won the First Place award for the Accounting II division. Nathanial has now earned

the honor of representing Cabell County and the state of West Virginia in the FBLA National Leadership Conference, held in Anaheim CA, June 27-30. This is not Nathanial's first time representing Cabell Midland's FBLA at the national level. Last year as a junior, Nathanial placed third in the state for the Accounting I division. As a result, he traveled with his adviser, Kristye Shaffer, to San Antonio, TX to represent West Virginia in the national competition.

"I am extremely proud of Nathanial and his accomplishments. I believe that he has a very bright and promising future ahead of him. I feel certain that he will be successful in any career that he may choose," said Kristye Shaffer, FBLA Adviser and Business Education Teacher. Mrs. Shaffer continued to say, "I am proud of all of my FBLA students. The FBLA experience gives them a fabulous start and sets them up for success at the collegiate level."

Nathaniel is currently raising funds for his trip to the national competition in Anaheim. For information on Cabell Midland's FBLA organization or

Rahall Attends 32nd Annual National Peace Officers' Memorial Service, Honors Families of WV State Troopers WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-WV) attended the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, May 15 to honor law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty. West Virginia State Police Trooper Eric Michael Workman and Corporal Marshall Lee Bailey, who were killed in the line of duty last August, were recognized in the ceremony. “Every 57 hours in this country, law enforcement officers lay down their lives so that the rest of us can enjoy lives enriched by the very safety and security our officers provide,” said Rahall. “We must never forget those who put themselves in harm’s way to preserve and protect our safety, and how indebted we are to their families for the many days and hours

they sacrifice so their loved ones might serve our communities, our State, and our Nation.”

Rahall held a private meeting in his office with the families of Trooper Workman and Corporal

Bailey and presented them with flags flown over the U.S. Capitol to honor their sacrifice.

A lot has changed in 150 years

David Payne Sr. Column by David Payne Sr.

A lot has changed since West Virginia became a state 150 years ago. The change, however, started much earlier. The animals the first explorers and settlers saw and killed in West Virginia seem almost unbelievable today. Wolves roamed our mountains.

Bison, mountain lions and elk were also prominent. By the time West Virginia became a state in 1863, all of these animals had been wiped out. Only within the last 30 years has the coyote moved in to serve the predator role left vacant by the wolf. It's hard to imagine West Virginia's scenic beauty without its iconic wildlife, such as whitetailed deer and turkey. Many of the state's majestic creatures have been gone so long, they live on only in the names of places – Wolf Island on the Elk River, Buffalo in Putnam County, Elkview in Kanawha County, the Elk River, etc. Just a couple of centuries ago, people would likely have had just as much difficulty imagining the land that has become our state without its largest animals - the bison and elk. The last recorded bison killed was in 1825 near Valley Head in Randolph County, but the bison was long-gone from its primary range in the Ohio and Kanawha valleys long before that.

Our most reliable and detailed account of the bison extirpation in West Virginia comes from an unexpected source – George Washington. Washington traveled in the Ohio Valley during a 1770 trip and left us a detailed diary of what he saw and like an investigative reporter, he asked questions from everyone he met. While camping at the mouth of Lee Creek in Wood County – I think this would have been on Dexter and Cyril Graham's farm in Belleville – Washington ran into an old war buddy, an Indian with whom he served during the French and Indian War. As they talked about old times, they dined on the Indian's bison meat. Washington's diary indicates that the bison had just recently disappeared from the Ohio Valley. He notes old bison trails, but he saw no bison on the Ohio River on a round trip from present-day Pittsburgh to Point Pleasant. Indians frequently told him of places where herds of bison used to be. He didn't en-

Outdoor Roundup The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources recently stocked more than 10,000 catchable-size channel catfish in waters throughout the state. Stocked waters include: Anawalt Lake, (McDowell) Barboursville Lake (Cabell), Berwind Lake (McDowell), Cacapon State Park Lake (Morgan), Cedar Creek State Park Lake (Gilmer), Chief Logan State Park Lake (Logan), Conaway Run Lake (Tyler), Edwards Run Pond (Hampshire), Fort Ashby Lake (Mineral), French Creek Pond (Upshur), Handley Pond (Pocahontas), Hurricane Lake (Putnam), Indian Rock Lake (Nicholas), Krodel Lake (Mason), Laurel Lake (Mingo), Little Beaver State Park Lake (Raleigh), Mason Lake (Monongalia), Mountwood Lake (Wood), North Bend State Park Pond (Ritchie), Pendleton Lake (Tucker), Pipestem State Park Lake (Summers), Poorhouse Pond (Berkeley), Teter Creek Lake (Barbour), Tomlinson Run State Park Lake (Hancock), Turkey Run Lake ( Jackson), Wallback Lake (Clay), Watoga State Park Lake (Pocahontas), and Wirt County Farm Pond (Wirt). Among those are 400 tagged channel catfish stocked into five state park lakes, including: Cacapon State Park Lake, Cedar

Creek State Park Lake, Chief Logan State Park Lake, Pipestem State Park Lake, and Tomlinson Run State Park Lake. Anglers who catch a tagged fish are asked to return the tag or the tag number along with information on the date of capture, if the fish was kept or released, and the name and address of the angler to WVDNR, 2311 Ohio Ave, Parkersburg, WV 26101. Anglers also can call in the information (304-420-4550) or provide the information via email to There is usually a free gift for mailing back the tag. I think years ago, there was a hat. My son caught one of these catfish a few years back at Mountwood Park Lake and he got a pair of line clippers. I have never caught a single tagged fish in my life, but my son wound up with two tags one summer. A few weeks after he caught that tagged fish, we were canoeing at Mountwood and saw a dead catfish floating along and said “Hey Dad, let's go check out that dead catfish to see if it has a tag in it!” I explained to him that tagged fish were rare, I'd been fishing for 30 years and never caught one, etc. But, we paddled over to the dead catfish. Naturally, it had a tag in it. The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources needs help in

locating whip-poor-wills. If you see or hear whip-poorwills in West Virginia between May 10 and July 31, please email DNR Wildlife Resources Section biologist Rich Bailey at Include the date and location, being very specific; where you saw or heard the bird; your name and phone number; and whether you saw or heard the bird. The whip-poor-will is a gray, black and brown bird with a black throat. It is well-camouflaged and is easier to hear than see. Its namesake song is a loud, rhythmic “whip-poor-will” which it sings repeatedly at night. “Recent Breeding Bird Survey data indicate significant population declines of this bird in nearby states, and your observations will enable us to get a better sense of their population status in West Virginia,” Bailey said. The DNR is also interested in discovering locations of barn owls and bald eagle nests. Please email Bailey if you see or hear either of these species with the same information as for the whip-poor-will. Barn owls have a distinctive white, heartshaped face and a variety of unique calls including clicks, hisses, grunts and screams.

counter any bison himself until he traveled several miles up the Kanawha River (Indians told him bison could still be found there). He and his party shot several of them for food. The bison was the first to go, elk and wolves suffered similar fates – although they would inhabit the state for another century. Recently, however, the elk have returned thanks to wanders from Kentucky's elk-reintroduction efforts near the West Virginia border. So have the canine predators, with what is believed to be a natural migration of coyotes to fill the void left by the extirpated wolf. Game animals started seeing protection in the late 19th Century, not long after statehood. In 1897, what is now the Division of Natural Resources' Law Enforcement Section was established to enforce game laws. It's one of the nation's oldest statewide police agencies. In the early 1900s, the agency that would become the Division of Natural Resources worked to

restore the deer and turkey populations. Its employees trapped these animals in the Eastern Panhandle and released them throughout the state where the populations had been eliminated. The first official West Virginia hunting season was in 1923, and limited to the eastern part of the state. A total of 60 bucks were harvested statewide, 34 of which were bagged in Pocahontas County. The next deer season was in 1927 and about 160 deer were harvested. Early records are spotty and no harvest records have survived for many of the years in the 1920s and 1930s, although in some of those years, all seasons were closed. Could you imagine a deer season with only 160 deer harvested statewide? A lot has changed in 150 years. Contact David Payne at .

SUSAN PARSONS Susan Parsons, 82, of Huntington passed away peacefully on May 8, 2013, at Midland Meadows Assisted Living in Ona, W.Va. She was born Hazel Jo Bailey and later nicknamed "Susan" by her grandmother. She was the daughter of the late Clarence Victor Bailey and Blanche Fischbach Bailey of Kenova, W.Va. Susan was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Jess; and brothers, Clarence Clifford "Mike" Bailey, Earl Bailey and John Bailey; and a sister, Pauline Thompson. She is survived by a sister, Eleanor Roach; a brother, Larry Bailey; and a special sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Carol and Fred Rodgers, who reside in Columbus, Ohio. She is also survived by a daughter, Lynn Hanna and husband John; and sons, Jonathon M. Parsons and wife Melissa, and Jeffrey B. Parsons. Also surviving are grandchildren, Jessica and Scott Duernberger, Nathan Sparks, Amber Hanna, John Matthew Hanna and Kelly Dew; and great-grandchildren, Voss and Odin Duernberger and Thor and Iris Hanna. During her lifetime, she was a lover of all living things. She took in under her care many pets and neighborhood children. Her love of decorating and remodeling led her and Jess to move multiple times while always enjoying the challenge of making a home beautiful. With all her kindness, she could not be misinterpreted as a push-over. She was a strongwilled woman and it was especially apparent when it came to card playing. Her competitiveness made her quite a challenge to defeat at bridge, rummy, cribbage or set back. When alone, she felt comfort in playing Solitaire. Susan will be missed by all that knew her for her beauty both inside and out. The family is so appreciative to Midland Meadows Assisted Living for their compassionate care giving and Hospice of Huntington for helping during her time of need. Chapman's Mortuary was in charge of the arrangements. A family memorial was held on Saturday, May 11th, with the Reverend Hubert Harvey presiding. Donations may be made to Hospice of Huntington.
