Advantage Valley Partners LLC Being Dissolved Commission learns Regional Economic Development Group Dissolving By Jack Bailey

HUNTINGTON – A regional economic development organization formed 10 years ago to promote new business growth in a five-county region in West Virginia is dissolving and Cabell County commissioners would like some of the money back that they gave to start the group. At the Commission's May 24 meeting, commissioners were told that the regional economic development group known as Advantage Valley Partners LLC was being dissolved. The group

had been formed in 2002 to allow counties to work together in bringing new development projects to the region. The five county's participating in the effort were Cabell, Wayne, Mason, Putnam and Kanawha. Cabell County Manager Chris Tatum told commissioners that he had received a letter that the group was being formally dissolved and that approximately $21,000 was left in the organization's account. The remaining funds are to be split evenly among the five counties who participated in the effort. Tatum said that Cabell

County had contributed $15,000 to the group initially. “It never got off the ground after we put $15,000 into it,” said Commissioner Bob Bailey. “Let's get back out of it what we can.” Commissioners moved to appoint Tatum to sign off on the agreement dissolving the group and to receive Cabell County's share of the remaining money back. The group's original plan was to develop a new business park near the Hurricane exit of Interstate 64. The West Virginia Lottery had initially expressed interest in moving its headquar-

ters to the proposed business park, but a court ruling later found that the lottery headquarters had to remain in Kanawha County. In other news at the June 24 meeting, commissioners postponed a bid opening to provide construction of a new circuit court courtroom at the Cabell County courthouse. The bid opening will now take place at the Commission's next meeting. Also at the May 24 meeting, commissioners convened as the Board of Canvassers to certify the results of the recent primary election. Also at the meeting, commis-

sioners approved the following Community Participation Grants: $2,500 for substance · abuse prevention programs at the United Way; · $8,000 for construction, renovation and equipment at the Museum of Art; · $1,000 for the Ona Little League. Commissioners also approved the reclassification of Joshua Cottrell to a per diem paramedic. The next meeting of the Cabell County Commission will be Thursday, June 14, at 10 a.m. at the courthouse in Huntington.

PSC Warns Utility Scam The Public Service Commission of West Virginia is warning utility customers of a scam claiming the federal government will help pay the utility bills of residential customers. In different parts of the country, victims have been recruited by individuals going door-to-door, posting fliers and using social media and text messaging. The scam claims President Barack Obama is providing credits or applying payments to utility bills; however, in order to apply customers must provide personal information, such as a Social Security Number. The victims are then provided with a bank routing number through which to pay their bills. The routing number is fraudulent and the payments are not applied to the customer bills.

Although the scam has not yet been reported in West Virginia, the PSC is reminding West Virginians to be vigilant, use common sense if contacted about utility payments and keep the following precautions in mind: · Utility company representatives always carry proper identification and do not randomly contact customers and ask for their Social Security number · Citizens should not allow anyone, including persons claiming to be utility employees, into their homes without asking for proper identification and verifying the purpose for the visit · Customers should only use methods authorized by the utility company to pay bills · If someone shows up without an appointment asking to check an appliance or suggesting

another electrical problem may be inside the home, residents should contact the utility company at the number on their bill or in the phonebook For more information on authorized payment locations, contact your utility company.

Gar are Survivors

David Payne Sr.

Column by David Payne Sr.

They look like dinosaurs and, in a way, they are. Longnose gar are a common site for any fisherman, they look like small logs submerged just below the water surface. Sometimes, they will take a lure, but rarely are they hooked. It's hard to get a hook into their bony jaws and the gar is such a bony fish, people rarely eat them. I say “rarely” because there is somebody, I'm sure, who eats pretty much everything, but I have never heard of anybody eating one. Some people consider them a nuisance and kill them out of hand with the assumption that gar eat too many gamefish. However, they mostly dine on minnows. Their jaws are too narrow to eat anything large enough that you would want to catch it.

In the old days – and I hope people are above this now – many gars caught had their jaws smashed and thrown back in the water to starve. They are fascinating creatures and their effect on gamefish is minimal. In fact, they have coexisted with gamefish for millions of years. The site of gar lazily hanging out just below the water's surface was a sight as common to dinosaurs as it is to us. When dinosaurs ruled the land, the gar dominated West Virginia waters. The only fish that could actually take on a gar – and I've never seen this happen, mind you – the muskellunge, has not been around nearly as long. I grew up on the bank of the Elk River in Kanawha County. It was a place where everybody fished, partly because we had this fabulous river at a doorstep and partly because there was nothing else to do. I spent much of my childhood fishing and watching gar lazily drift by. You can learn a lot about animals by watching them do nothing. I was amazed by their toughness and their lack of fear. Fish are naturally skittish, but gars have no reason to be. After all, they survived the mass-extinction that took out the dinosaurs. They are survivors, not only obviously tougher than dinosaurs; they remain a top-of-the-food-chain fish in our waters today. My first day of school at Herbert Hoover High School, I sneaked out of orientation with some friends and walked down to the bank of

the Elk River behind the school. There were three gar hovering motionless at the surface of the water. One of my friends picked up a large log – he was a very large, strong boy – and heaved it out in the river between them. They rose and fell with the wake of the log, but didn't flinch. Gar are fearless. You have to respect that. Usually when you see a gar, it's at the surface, doing seemingly nothing. At least it looks like they are doing nothing, but they are actually engaged in one of the core activities that separates us from fish – breathing air. That's right, gar breathe air. I'm not making this up. Gar don't always breathe air. They also have gills for dissolving oxygen from water, like all other fish, but their ability to breathe air is one of the secrets to this fish's survival throughout the epochs. In a situation where oxygen levels are low and other fish die en masse, the gar can get as much as 70 percent of its oxygen from the air. The world-wide catastrophe that killed all the dinosaurs was no match for the gar. Not only can it survive low oxygen levels by breathing air, it can also shrug off extremely high temperatures that would kill most fish. As long as he stays wet and the water isn't boiling, a gar will be just fine. Contact David Payne Sr. at

Fishing Report Beech Fork: The reservoir water level is at summer pool. Crappie fishing is really starting to pick up, with many nice fish being caught around woody structure. Bass are in their spawning areas and should be aggressively defending their nests. Channel catfish can be caught throughout the lake on chicken livers and cut-bait. Hybrid striped bass and white bass can be caught using white lures. Call (304) 525-4831 for more information. East Lynn: The reservoir water level is at summer pool. Bass will be holding near logs, stumps and fish attracting brush piles. Musky will be found near bush piles and fallen trees. Channel catfish and flatheads are abundant in the lake and can be caught with a variety of baits. Crappie fishing is picking up, try around standing timber or trees that have fallen into the water. A few walleye have been caught in the lake and tailwater. For more information, call (304) 849-9861. R.D.Bailey: Spotted bass can be found along drop-offs and points extending into the lake at this time of the year and some of the state's largest spotted bass have come from this lake. Good baits are plastic jigs, live shad, or crayfish. Hybrid striped bass are also being caught. Best baits are lures such as rattletraps, spoons, or white/chartreuse jigs. For more information call (304) 664-9587. Stephens Lake: Lake is very clear. Bass anglers are successfully using soft plastics and small crankbaits. The DNR recently stocked channel catfish fingerlings into the lake, which helps maintain a year-round catfish fishery avail-

able to the public. Try your favorite catfish bait or lure for success. Livers and nightcrawlers work well for catfish bait, as do a variety of paste and prepared type baits offered at sporting goods stores. Many find success using the ‘dippin sponge’ method, fishing it either beneath a bobber or on the bottom using a basic three way river rig. Another trick is to catch small baitfish using a piece of a worm, etc., then cut them up and use them as fresh bait. Many times this will out-fish other bait types due to its freshness, be sure to give it a try. If you use a game fish (bluegill, bass) as bait, you must include it in your daily creel limit. Lower Ohio and Kanawha rivers - As the water in the tailwaters begins to clear the fishing for sauger, walleye, white bass and hybrid striped bass will start to pick up. Jigs with minnows could provide some excellent catches; if artificial baits are your preference white and chartreuse are good colors to try. Blue, flathead and channel catfish activity is picking up as the water continues to warm. Guyandotte, Coal, Poca, Elk, and Mud rivers - These streams should be clearing. Musky streams: are expected to be fishable this weekend and muskies are quite active. Hot spots this time of year include areas both upstream and downstream of fast moving water. Musky anglers should try medium to large lures. Middle Island Creek, the major streams in the Hughes River system, the Elk River and the Little Kanawha River are good area musky waters.

Thousands of Catfish stocked into Ponds Statewide By David Payne Sr.

The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources recently stocked thousands of catchablesize channel catfish in park ponds throughout the state, including some in Putnam and Cabell counties. Barboursville Lake in Cabell County and Hurricane Lake in Putnam County are among the small ponds that have received catfish. Others stocked are: Anawalt Lake (McDowell), Berwind Lake (McDowell), Cacapon State Park Lake (Morgan), Cedar Creek State Park Lake (Gilmer), Chief Logan

State Park Lake (Logan), Conaway Run Lake (Tyler), Coopers Rock Lake (Monongalia), Edwards Run Pond (Hampshire), French Creek Pond (Upshur), Handley Pond (Pocahontas), , 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), Tomlinson Run State Park Lake (Hancock), Wallback Lake (Clay), and Wirt County Farm Pond. Also, 400 tagged channel catfish have been stocked into eight statepark lakes, including: Cacapon State Park Lake; Cedar Creek State

Park Lake; Chief Logan State Park Lake; Little Beaver State Park Lake; North Bend State Park Pond; Pipestem State Park Lake; Tomlinson Run State Park Lake; and Pendleton Lake at Blackwater Falls State Park. Anyone who catches a tagged catfish – and reports the catch will receive a reward of either a ride to Whittaker Station at Cass Scenic Railroad or a ride to Blennerhassett Island on the sternwheeler, The Island Belle. Anglers who catch a tagged fish are asked to return the tag or 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 e-mail . The information is used to evaluate the success of stocking programs and helps the DNR understand how long fish remain in the water before they are caught, as well as whether the fish are harvested and released as well as obtaining other important data, said Chris O'Bara, fish biologist. “Evaluations of the stocking program indicate that anglers catch these catfish throughout the summer and into early fall, and most release the fish for others to enjoy,” O’Bara said. The DNR also stocks blue catfish on the Ohio River, where biologists

will be conducting a survey of anglers through October 20. The survey is part of a multi-state program to gain an understanding of how anglers are using the fishery. Biologists will be conducting surveys on a vast stretch of the river from where Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania meet and downriver to Kentucky's border with Indiana. A West Virginia fishing license is required for anyone age 15 and older except for the free fishing days scheduled June 9 and 10. Also, residents who turn age 65 after January 1, 2012, are required to purchase a Senior Lifetime License. Contact David Payne Sr. at

Run For The Wall makes stop at Valley Park Run For The Wall riders return to Putnam County By Jack Bailey

HURRICANE – Hundreds of people turned out at Valley Park on Wednesday, May 23, to welcome nearly 400 motorcycle riders who are crossing the country from California to Washington, D.C. on the annual Run For The Wall. Just before 6 p.m. motorcycles began to come up Valley Park Drive to a cheering, flag waving crowd that was eager to welcome the group back to Putnam County. This year marked the 10th year that riders stopped in Putnam County and the fourth year that they stopped in Valley Park, according to Tony Price of the West Virginia Star Touring and Riding Chapter 197 Club which organizes the event. Once inside the park, riders were greeted by a large American Flag and a large black flag dedicated to those soldiers who were Missing In Action or Prisoners of War. The flags were held high in the air from the suspension ladders of fire trucks from the Hurricane and Teays Valley fire departments. Price said that the flags help reinforce part of the mission of the Run For The Wall, that the riders are riding for those who can't. After dismounting from their motorcycles, riders were greeted with a welcome ceremony and

A large American Flag and a large black flag dedicated to POWs and those Missing In Action welcomed riders in the Run For The Wall to Valley Park on Wednesday, May 23. Photo by Jack Bailey then treated to a free home cooked meal prepared by local volunteers. In addition to the food, the Wave Pool was also opened to riders who wanted to take a quick swim, or simply a shower in the bathhouses. A washing station was also set up for riders who wanted to clean up their motorcycles. The Park was also open overnight to riders who wanted to camp there. Price said that the city of Hurricane and Putnam County Parks have been wonderful in showing hospitality to the riders, who departed Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., on May 16 to ride to Washington D.C. Price also credited local volun-

teers who helped make the food and direct the motorcyclists to designated parking areas among other duties. In all, Price said about 100 people volunteered to help with this year's event. In addition to local volunteers, others turned out to help welcome the estimated 400 riders to West Virginia. Marpat Aviation from Logan County was on hand with a Vietnam era Huey helicopter that took off from the Valley Park Wave Pool parking lot to fly out and greet the riders as they crossed into West Virginia from Kentucky. The Huey helicopter then flew with the riders from the border back to Valley Park. After spending Wednesday night in Putnam County, riders

A Huey helicopter that was used in the Vietnam War takes off from Valley Park to welcome motorcycle riders in the Run For The Wall. The helicopter met the riders at the Kentucky-West Virginia border and accompanied them back to Valley Park. Photo by Jack Bailey assembled and left from Valley Park on Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. to go to the state capitol building in Charleston where they were greeted by Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin. From the Capitol, riders traveled on to Rainelle Elementary School for another stop and visit with the elementary school children. From Rainelle riders traveled on to Lewisburg to spend the night before heading on into Washington D.C. Once in Washington, riders participated in Rolling Thunder’s “Ride For Freedom” on Sunday. Riders also laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery. The Run For The Wall began in

1989 as an annual motorcycle ride with veterans, friends and family riding across the United States to accomplish their mission: • to promote healing among all veterans and their families and friends; • to call for an accounting of all Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action (POW/MIA); • to honor the memory of those Killed in Action (KIA) from all Wars; and • to support military personnel all over the world.

Edwards School of Medicine. The scholarship will provide a $10,000 award for an entering first-year medical student for each of the next four years. “This is the second scholarship created for the School of Medicine by the Huntington Clinical Foundation and we are

private foundation supports scientific research and scholarships. “The Huntington Clinical Foundation, which is funded by the Switzer Trust, has the mission to provide funds to help improve medical care and education in West Virginia,” Wolfe said. “Helping Marshall's medical school attract the best and brightest students is an excellent example of the goal of our foundation and should pay sig-

nificant dividends to our region in the future.” “The trustees are pleased to be able to fulfill the object of the foundation in providing this medical education scholarship,” Morgan said. “The efforts will benefit the entire region.” The scholarship, known as the Huntington Clinical Foundation Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine Expendable Scholarship, will be awarded to an entering first-year

student chosen by the School of Medicine Scholarship Committee in conjunction with the Marshall University Financial Aid Office. The Huntington Clinical Foundation created the first expendable scholarship for medical students in 2010. An expendable scholarship is one that does not accrue interest and can only be awarded based upon the available balance.

Volunteers Needed It’s time for the annual cleaning of the Ohio River and your help is needed. Volunteers are needed for River Sweep 2012 scheduled for Saturday, June 16, along the shoreline of the Ohio River and its many tributaries. River Sweep is a riverbank cleanup that extends the entire length of the Ohio River and beyond. More than 3,000 miles of shoreline will be combed for trash and debris. This is the largest environmental event of its kind and encompasses six states. “The Ohio River Sweep is very

important because for a few hours on one day volunteers can help make a difference in the appearance of this great natural resource,” said Jeanne Ison, Project Director. “The Sweep has grown so much in the past few years, we’ve been able to expand the project to tributaries and feeder streams of the Ohio River.” Persons wanting to volunteer for this event can call 1-800-3593977 for site locations and county coordinators in their area or visit the website at and click on

River Sweep. Each volunteer will receive a free T-shirt. The River Sweep is sponsored by the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO). Other sponsoring agencies are the West Virginia Make It Shine Program, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Illinois EPA, and Kentucky River Authority. ORSANCO is the water pollution control agency for the Ohio River and its tributaries.
