Center Draws Crowds By Justin Waybright firstname.lastname@example.org
MILTON - The mission behind the city's performing arts center is accomplished as crews add final upgrades in preparation for three upcoming acts. The Hoppers at 7 p.m. Saturday Nov. 16 and Ivan Parker at 7 p.m. Friday Dec. 6 are already filling seats. It's mid-November and Cabell Midland High School students are drawing interest for the Best of Christmas benefit event they'll host for the school at 6 p.m. Saturday Dec. 14. The familiar phrase "If you build it, they will come" pushes the Milton Performing Arts Center forward into the holiday season. Under a state-of-the-art sound system, a 16-foot fan and a custom light rail, sits Bill Kelley. The president of the West Virginia Pumpkin Festival looks toward 938 seats waiting to be filled. He remembers two years ago when he sat in the same spot, inside nothing more than a shell of a building with a small stage. Fast-forward to 2013: the addition of a bigger stage, more restrooms, a state-of-the-art sound SEE CENTER ON PAGE 4

Knights smash Brooke, 48-12 By Bishop Nash For The Cabell Standard
HOW TO REACH US

ONA- The Knights offense mercifully ended the evening kneeling at Brooke’s 4 yard line, but they were finishing a dominant regular season with an exclamation point. Cabell Midland emphatically punched their ticket to the home field advantage in the postseason Friday night at Knights Field, steamrolling the Brooke Bruins 48-12. A 525 yard rushing tsunami featured three running backs,
Kasey Thomas (157), Teran Barnitz (139) and Alex Childers (103) eclipse 100 rushing yards; a feat never accomplished in Cabell Midland’s history. In testament to Midland’s defensive efficiency, Brooke managed only 38 yards in the first half and did not cross midfield until SEE KNIGHTS ON PAGE 8 Knights RB Kasey Thomas outruns Bruins DB Matthew Lazear (31) but is stopped on the 1 yard line.Thomas scores on the next play.

Taking Apart Color We see color, but how do we perceive color? What makes up the colors we see, and to the artist, how do we record and use color? We all have seen a color wheel, but what does it mean? Where did it come from?
In art, how to we get the colors we want? How does color effect composition? How does value in effect color? These and more questions will be explored during November and December at the Renaissance Art Gallery. Wednesday Fine Art Classes at the Renaissance Art Gallery focus on “what is color” this winter. Exploring both the theory of color and its reality in our world, this class will take apart color and master its mysteries.

Guyandotte and Nichols Elementary Schools Recognized by National Foundation By Amanda Smith For The Cabell Standard
Cabell County Schools made up nine of the 267 schools nationwide to receive recognition from the Alliance for a Healthier Generation on Sept. 30. In West Virginia, only two other schools met the criteria for recognition. Cabell County was recognized at an awards banquet in Little Rock, Ark. for the nine schools that met or exceeded recently updated federal nutrition standards. These schools included Altizer Elementary, Central City Elementary, Geneva Kent Elementary, Guyandotte Elementary, Highlawn Elementary, Nichols Elementary, Peyton Elementary, Southside Elementary, and Enslow Middle School. The awards were presented by former President Bill Clinton, whose foundation co-founded the alliance along with the American Heart Foundation. “To win this award, there is a lot of criteria for schools to work on,” said Rhonda McCoy, Food Services Director for Cabell County Schools. “The schools worked very hard. The criteria included an overall wellness rating for the school.” McCoy said Cabell County

tions to everyone for working so hard.” Another focus of student health is vision exams, which are being completed through Alcon, Superintendent William Smith said. So far, 1,100 students have been tested and 200 of them were given
court reporting classes and closed captioning classes through the Huntington Junior College. Ryan McKenzie, currently the Principal of Peyton Elementary, will be the principal of the new expeditionary learning school which is slated to open next fall.
Huntington Heroin Dealers Plead Guilty From Staff Report HUNTINGTON, WV - A Huntington man pleaded guilty on Nov. 4 in federal court in connection with his role in a heroin distribution conspiracy. Ricky Ray Rockwell, 49, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute heroin. Between November 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, according to police records. Rockwell told police that during the illegal drug scheme, he controlled the door to a Huntington residence, used primarily for distributing illegal drugs. He also completed illegal heroin transactions for Robinson and Dickerson. Rockwell said he then gave drug proceeds to his co-conspirators after the drug transactions. Robinson, 44, was sentenced to 11 years and three months in prison in March for his role in the illegal drug conspiracy. Dicker-
son, 36, was sentenced in March to 15 years and nine months in federal prison. 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. 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. The defendants also utilized several Huntington residences to store, prepare and package illegal drugs during the fall of 2010 through July 2011. Rockwell faces up to 20 years in federal prison when he is sentenced on February 24, 2014. This case was investigated by the DEA, the Huntington Police Department and the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force. Assistant United States Attorney Joseph F. Adams is in charge of the prosecution.

“NOVEMBER THOUGHTS” Thought for the week: He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil – Isaiah 33:15 (KJV) Read the above verse slowly and think on it. This is a hard quest to do in today’s media world. We are born again, believe in God, try to live a good Christian life the best we can, asking for God’s grace, guidance and forgiveness… the big BUT. We see and hear so much evil happening all around us daily. My thoughts are guns are to be used for weapons of our country in wartime, for hunting of food, for our city, state protection, and yes, everyone should have the freedom of owning their own gun. I am sure Albert agrees with me, as he sit’s gazing out his window, overlooking the pond, ponderin’ the many thoughts of yesteryear. Each should have the freedom of
protecting his own. Since 1760 school shootings have happened. In Nov. 1853 in Louisa KY, a student brought his Dad’s pistol to school one morning, shooting the schoolmaster as revenge for what he thought was wrong punishment towards his little brother the day before. So many school shootings and mall massacres - and they increase each year. Guns, knives and clubs are weapons. It is the human who handles them that makes the problem. Like anything else, television can be used for good or bad. We sit the two-year-old in front of a TV for entertainment, not knowing this may be turning the young mind to undesirable thoughts that may be used later in life. Teachers have no control, their hands are tied by all this political correctness. Parents don’t know what goes on in classrooms unless the instructors can tell them - and Grandma tried. So why are the prisons full? And why is this younger generation on drugs? Because they feel no one
The Cabell Standard cares, needs, or loves them. Matthew; 7; 17-Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. Maybe we should push the military fields more. If low grades are continual thru the last four years of schooling - a state requirement of one year in the military branch should be added, with college credits in whatever field they choose. Getting trained, they would be more apt to be off the streets, find a job, appreciate life and freedom more. Since yesterday (Nov. 11th) was Veterans Day, we should not forget every day to honor the men and women of the military who keep our shores safe. Fighting ceased the ending of World War I at the 11th hour, 11th day of the 11th month 1918. I remember my Dad telling his story. He was one mile from the enemy lines, lying in a cold foxhole, when the Sergeant came riding thru on his mighty gray horse, waving a white flag shouting the Great War has ended! Be sure to say “THANK YOU” to those who are keeping the USA safe! Prayer: Our Father in heaven, thank you for all past and present military people who on this November in 2013, we remember with love for all. Amen.
CENTER FROM PAGE 1 system and a new lighting system. All have helped fulfill Kelley's vision for entertainment in Milton. The Arts Center is now beginning to impact many. Mission Accomplished. "We built it and they're coming," he said. In October, more than 300 people enjoyed a dinner and show by The VanDells. Earlier this month, the Booth Brothers saw more than 575 people attend their performance. "Ticket sales are picking up each show," Kelley said. "We've already booked 14 shows for next year." The constant attention to enhancing sound and experience for guests and performers is like a magnet, drawing in bands and guests from across the nation to the Milton Pumpkin Park. "We've strived to improve, so we can become a year-round destination," he said. "We can't compete with places like Big Sandy and the Clay Center, but
Bill Kelley sits inside a newly updated and enhanced Milton Performing Arts Center. The Pumpkin Festival President is excited about upcoming performances and believes the facility now has what it takes to become a Tri-State entertainment destination. the acoustics in this building are as good as anywhere." Also, crews have recently installed a new lighting and ventilation system to provide an even better venue for performers. Two new 12-foot video screens were installed. The new lighting, ventilation
and video system cost more than $40,000. To Kelley, it's all worth it. He's starting to see the fruit of his labor. "We're just about to the point where we got everything we need," he said. "This is growing because more and more people are learning about it." Two years ago, the center was nothing more than an empty building and a dream. Now, it's one of the area's premier entertainment venues. When asked what he thought about its future, Kelley laughed and said, "I think it's going to be busy for a long time."

Christian's Sports Beat: The Sports Man In Front Of The Camera
By: Christian Deiss
HUNTINGTON, WV – Every weeknight (and some weekends) since 1996, the man that tells you the latest sports news in the Tri-State area (West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky) on WSAZ-TV has been Keith Morehouse. The veteran sportscaster has been in front of the camera in the station’s Huntington studios and live from sporting events for over 30 years. I got to meet Morehouse during the Marshall University Soccer Camp this past summer. For the last two years I have been doing some sports broadcasting for the West Virginia Metro Sports Network for high school football and have really enjoyed the experience, so I asked More-
house why he got into sports broadcasting, “I got into it because my dad was a sportscaster, he use to do the football and basketball games on radio for Marshall University and I just thought that was a cool job.” Morehouse’s dad, Gene died in the Marshall Football Team plane crash on November 14, 1970, when the young Morehouse was only nine years old. Morehouse is currently WSAZ’s Sports Director but I found out he has other sports reporting jobs, “I also write for newspaper and magazines, so I do some freelance writing and do some announcing for ESPN III regional television and I do some play-by-play for colleges for football and basketball when they call me for an assignment, so I get to do a variety of sports media jobs so that’s fun.” Morehouse has won the West Virginia Sportscaster of the Year award in 1999, 2007 and 2012. Through the years, Morehouse has covered a lot of exciting sporting events. He described a couple of them for me, “I’ve covered two different Heisman Trophy ceremonies, the NBA Draft when Patrick Patterson and AJ Mayo from Huntington High were drafted,
covered the NFL draft when Byron Leftwich of Marshall was drafted, been to a lot of bowl games, lots of great moments, lots of great sporting events and a lot of great athletes that I have gotten to meet along the way.” Morehouse is a two-time Emmy winner for his sports reporting. You might see Morehouse one night covering the West Virginia Power at Appalachian Power Park or a Marshall University athletic event or even at a high school football game, which he really enjoys the most. “High school sports are so important to so many small communities and towns and they love their high schools. It is such a fabric of life in the state - it is very important and that’s why we cover high school sports at WSAZ so closely because our viewers in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky depend on us to provide them with scores and stories about the young athletes. It is the purest sport really because it’s not for money, it’s because you love to play the game.” Morehouse said. Keith anchors a high school football scoreboard show every Friday night during the season. The day I interviewed Morehouse I was wearing my Balti-
Keith Morehouse, Sports Director for WSAZ reporting live before a WV Power Game at Appalachian Power Park. Courtesy photo more Orioles hat and he told me what his favorite teams were when he was growing up, “I liked the Boston Red Sox (I won’t hold that against him since they did win the World Series this year) and I liked the Celtics when they had Larry Bird and when the Rams were in Los Angeles they were my favorite football team.” Morehouse played baseball at Huntington High School and received his broadcast journalism degree from Marshall University. Being on television for over 30 years Morehouse has had his share of embarrassing moments, which he shared with
me, “Sometimes when you are doing a live shot and they come to you before you expect it and you aren’t ready and you are just looking around and they say go you just laugh and move forward. Once I was tucking my shirt in on a live shot and I didn’t know I was on, things like that happen, but again you just laugh them off because no one is perfect.” I really enjoyed meeting and interviewing Mr. Keith and every time I see him on TV it’s like watching a friend do the job he loves. Someday I hope he gets a chance to see me in front of the camera.

Velma’sView By Velma Kitchens School Teachers My grandma Guthrie was from Kanawha County and she was a school teacher. I guess her love of reading is why I love to read. I have always loved reading as I get so wrapped up in the characters in a book that I feel I am right there with them. Of course, the writer has to make me feel that way. A wise man once said, “If you can read, you can accomplish anything in life” and I believe it. Reading is so important and I am thankful for all the wonderful teachers I have had in my life who took time to teach me. Some of the teachers I had were not very nice, but most were very kind and considerate. There was one teacher at Culloden Elementary years ago that everyone was afraid of. I was never afraid of much, but I was taught to respect your teacher and do whatever he or she said. Well, I never had any trouble from that teacher, but I know kids who did. It was a third grade teacher and that is the only clue that I am giving. I hope she got better. Anyway, my grandma Guthrie was a Smith and married my grandpa Guthrie who was a farmer. He also built houses and sold them after awhile and then built more houses, sold them and so on and so on. Teaching and farming are hard work. My Dad said he would have to hoe the corn and he never planted corn as an adult. I guess for a child to look down those long rows of corn, it looked like forever to get all the weeding finished. Isn't it funny how things of our childhood stay with us? I remember another teacher who was at Culloden Elementary but she taught fourth grade. She always wore tight skirts and high heels. All the boys loved her. I was in her class and I never had any trouble with her, but when you got in trouble she would take her ruler and hit the palm of your hand. I didn't get that treatment and I am glad. How could you hold a pencil in that hand? Children remember things that you think they would never remember. Kids are people to. The first teacher I ever had who took the time to teach me about creative writing was Mr. Thomas who was at Garretts Bend Elementary in Garretts Bend, West Virginia - which is next to Sod, West Virginia. He always was an encouragement to me and the other students to do our best. He sticks out in my mind as one who really cared. There are many teachers out there who really care about the children and you need to take the time to say thank you or send them a card. Yes, they do get paid, but isn't it nice to have someone say thank you for a job well done?

Skolik named 2013 Outstanding Woman in Technology at ‘Spirit of Innovation’ Awards Banquet HUNTINGTON, WV - Twotime Marshall University graduate Dr. Stephanie A. Skolik was recognized as one of West Virginia’s top innovators at the recent TechConnectWV “Spirit of Innovation” awards banquet held in Morgantown. An ophthalmologist and president and CEO of the Huntington Retina Center, Skolik was honored with the 2013 Outstanding Woman in Technology award for her retinopathy research and invention of devices to assist with eye surgery. She is the founder of the American Retina Research Foundation and heads up Eyedea Inc., an ophthalmic invention company. Approximately 20 years ago, she observed that patients with long-term diabetes and co-existing arthritis seemed far less likely than their non-arthritic counterparts to develop diabetic retinopathy, the most common diabetic eye disease and a leading cause of blindness in American adults. The disease is caused by changes in the blood vessels of the retina. Skolik hypothesized that the inflammatory joint proteins were providing a sort of innate protection. The search for the identity of this protective factor is the
focus of her research. If the protective factor can be identified, it may be a critical link to understanding diabetes itself and could eventually lead to a “diabetes vaccine.” Dr. Jan I. Fox, Marshall’s senior vice president for information technology and chief information officer, said she has known Skolik since high school, when they were debate partners. “Stephanie Skolik epitomizes entrepreneurship. When I think of innovation, technology and a strong female leader, it is her name that comes to mind,” said Fox. “When she needed something for her work that was not available, she would just create a new device for ophthalmic surgery. Most people could only dream of holding a single patent, but she holds multiple patents for ophthalmic medical devices. “Above all, she has used her intellect and skills to improve the lives of West Virginians. Eleven years ago she established the non-profit American Retina Research Foundation, which is based in Huntington, to provide financial support for diabetic retinopathy research. Her heart is as large as her talent.” Skolik earned a bachelor’s degree from Marshall in 1981 and
graduated from the university’s school of medicine in 1985. She was a finalist in the U.S. Olympic Trials in basketball in 1980 and a Rhodes Scholarship finalist in 1981. In addition to being an assistant professor at Marshall’s medical school from 1994 to 1999, she has been a clinical instructor and fellow at the Yale University School of Medicine. From 1998 to 2002, she was a guest researcher at the highly acclaimed National Eye Institute in Bethesda, Md. TechConnectWV is a nonprofit coalition committed to the advancement of the high-tech economy in West Virginia. Anne Barth, TechConnect’s executive director, said, “The ‘Spirit of Innovation’ program is an opportunity to spotlight success stories throughout the state, and recognize the people and organizations that support innovationbased economic development. By showcasing these creative efforts and the people behind them, we hope to inspire others who may have an entrepreneurial spirit. The 33 nominations received for this inaugural awards program demonstrate that in West Virginia, the innovation economy is not just a concept it’s a reality.”

Huntington attorney John Proctor to speak at Nov. 14 Memorial Service HUNTINGTON, WV - Huntington attorney John Proctor, whose parents were among the 75 victims of the 1970 Marshall University plane crash, will be the featured speaker in this year’s annual memorial service honoring all who died in the tragedy. The service, conducted by Marshall’s Student Government Association, starts at noon Thursday, Nov. 14, at the Memorial Student Center plaza on the Huntington campus. The public is invited to attend. The crash on Saturday, Nov. 14, 1970, occurred at about 7:47 p.m. when a DC-9 jetliner, returning Marshall home from its football game at East Carolina University in Greenville, N.C., clipped some treetops just short of Tri-State Airport and went down. Victims in-
cluded Marshall football players, coaches, staff and supporters, along with the crew of five. Proctor, who was 5 years old when the plane crashed, was the youngest of five sons and daughters of H.D. “Pete” Proctor and his wife, Courtney Josephine Proctor, both of whom died in the crash. The other surviving children were John’s sister Courtney, who was 6; his sister Patricia, who was 8; his brother, Jim, who was 17, and his sister Kim, who was 19. “I don’t remember a whole lot about it,” Proctor said of the crash. “Not until I was about eight years old when other kids talked about it did I even realize it. The first distinctive memories I have are from the third grade on. The brain is a wonderful thing. I’m not sure if I was too young or what.”
Proctor said he is uncertain what he will talk about in his speech on Nov. 14. “I’m really not sure, honestly,” Proctor said. He said he is thankful to have grown up under the guidance of many people. “In a way, I’m blessed,” Proctor said. “I was raised by my family and my friends, and my parents’ friends and people who loved them.” H.D. “Pete” Proctor graduated from Marshall University and received his medical degree from the Emory School of Medicine in Atlanta, Ga. A Navy veteran of World War II, he was one of the team’s physicians. He was 43 years old when he died. E. J. Hassan, president of Marshall’s student body, spoke of the
importance of the ceremony 43 years after the crash. “The Memorial Ceremony is the pinnacle of our university in terms of honoring our history as well as remembering the lives that were taken from our university community in 1970,” Hassan said. “It is an absolute honor for me personally to help in the planning of this ceremony, and it is my hope that we can bring as many students as possible so that not only can they take part in remembrance, but so that we can educate them on the rich history that makes Marshall University the community and family that it is today.” In addition to Proctor and Hassan, other speakers invited to take part in the memorial service include Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, Mar-
shall President Dr. Stephen J. Kopp and Marshall Athletic Director Mike Hamrick. The service will conclude with the placing of the memorial wreath at the Memorial Fountain. The fountain will be silenced after the laying of the wreath, and remain silent until next spring. For those who can’t attend, the service will be streamed live at www.marshall.edu/it/livestream. The Marshall football team will be watching from Tulsa, Okla., where it will play the University of Tulsa at 7:30 p.m. later that day. At 6:30 p.m., the SGA will conduct the first Memorial Service Site Visit. Anyone interested in boarding a bus that will take them to the crash site near Tri-State Airport may do so at that time.
Center for Lung Health at Cabell Huntington Hospital hosts COPD Awareness Fair with Screenings HUNTINGTON, WV – The Center for Lung Health at Cabell Huntington Hospital will host an awareness fair November 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to offer screenings and information about Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and other lung diseases. The event is free and open to the public and will focus on COPD, a lung disease that is a leading cause of death among West Virginia residents. Participants will receive information about lung health, lung disease prevention and they will have the opportunity to be screened for
COPD with spirometry testing. The tests are conducted using a tool that requires just a few short breaths to measure a person’s lung function. Results will be available for participants to share with their physician. “We invite anyone who has lung disease, or those who are at risk, to take advantage of this free awareness day at the Center for Lung Health at Cabell Huntington Hospital,” said Jim Perrine, manager of the Center for Lung Health. “We live in a community where lung disease is very prevalent because of many factors, including tobacco use. It is
important for anyone who experiences breathing problems to participate in screenings so potential disease can be detected sooner, when it is most treatable.” The COPD awareness fair will include information and specialists from several hospital departments, including: • Pulmonary Rehabilitation • Home Health • Pharmacy • Comprehensive Lung Nodule Program The Center for Lung Health offers pulmonary function diagnostic testing, evaluations by a
board-certified pulmonologist, spirometry testing and smoking cessation in a convenient, patient-friendly setting. Patients are offered disease-specific education, along with advice and suggestions about nutrition, home care, self-management strategies and relaxation/breathing techniques, and they have access to the pulmonary help line and may speak with a nurse or respiratory therapist about urgent needs associated with their pulmonary disorder. The Center for Lung Health is located across from the helipad with designated patient parking.

KNIGHTS FROM PAGE 1 10:10 in the third quarter. If this were a boxing match, the officials would have called a it TKO at halftime. Barnitz opened quickly for the nights, weaving out a 21-yard run just over two minutes into the contest, and wide out Dontae Hendricks took a 32-yard sweep in to score with 8.7 seconds left in the quarter. Retaking the helm at quarterback after two weeks out of favor, Coy Pettit welcomed himself back with a 20-yard flip over to Hendricks early in the second quarter. Meanwhile, Brooke did not achieve a first down until 5:24 in the second quarter, by that point already trailing 21-0. A 53-yard run by Thomas set up the senior back for a 1-yard touchdown run two plays later. Brooke botched a towering but short kickoff return that fell to the Knights, but penalties and a 12-yard loss by Hendricks boxed Midland into a 1st-and-32 with less than a minute left in the half. Barnitz took it upon himself to continue the onslaught, cashing in a 44-yard run for six with 45 seconds to go.

Photo by Jim Parsons To put it into perspective, Cabell Midland had more penalty yards at the half (85) than Brooke had offensive yards. Brooke did not curl up and die despite coming out of the locker
rooms trailing 34-0. The Bruins carved into Midland territory on the opening drive only to fumble into the endzone for a touchback at the Midland 1-yard line. Brooke finally put points up with 2:14 in the third only to have the extra point blocked and Pettit hitting Hendricks again from 54yards out less than a minute later. Brooke did manage 203 yards and two touchdowns through the air, one of which coming on a 70-yard bomb early in the fourth. On a more sour note for the Knights, they earned 16 flags and 135 yards in penalties despite the offensive madness. With the win, The Knights (82) secure home field advantage in the postseason. An opponent has not been announced. Kickoff will be at 7:30.

Schools Work to Lower Achievement Gaps By Amanda White For The Cabell Standard
Both Cabell Midland High School and Barboursville Middle School are working on strategic plans to combat their designations as “Focus Schools” by the West Virginia Department of Education. Focus schools are schools that have the largest achievement gaps between students of the majority population and subgroups, such as students with disabilities or students from lower socioeconomic groups. In high schools, the gap is measured by the difference in graduation rates. In middle schools, the gap is measured by differences in WESTEST 2 scores. Cabell Midland has a 29 percent gap in the graduation rate, according to an observation report by RESA 2. However, Dr. Jeff Smith, assistant superintendent, reported a more significant gap of 40 percent at Cabell Midland’s Local School Improvement Council (LSIC) meeting. The 40 percent graduation gap was between a combined subset of students with disabilities and students from a low socioeconomic household versus the rest of the student population. “I know how hard each and every one of you work,” said Suzanne Oxley, president of the Cabell County School Board. “Students come in all shapes and sizes. With bigger schools, you are going to have a greater cross section of students, so you are going to have increased challenges.”
Barboursville Middle School Assistant Principal Curtis Mann (left) explains his new math-intensive program for lowering the achievement gap between students with disabilities and students without. The program involved an extra 20 minutes of math instruction per day and hopes to raise each students’ proficiency level by a full grade.
Cabell Midland Principal Kelly Daniels (middle) addresses the Cabell County School Board during its annual Local School Improvement Council Meeting. Cabell Midland was chosen as a focus school by the West Virginia Department of Education because of the gap in graduation rates between subgroups of students.
Cabell Midland Principal Kelly Daniels said that the high school would have to graduate an additional 15 to 20 students per year in order to decrease the gap enough to no longer be considered a focus school. According to the RESA 2 report, Cabell Midland identifies “at-risk” students and teachers use a variety of intervention techniques based on individual students’ needs. Midland has an overall graduation rate of 83.4 percent. Barboursville Middle School was chosen as a focus school due to test achievement gaps between its majority population and students with disabilities subgroup, particularly in mathematics. “We can’t just ignore it,” said Barboursville Middle Principal Brent Jarell. “We have to try to improve it. The gap will always be there, it just depends on how much we can close it.”
ready, they’ve improved their effort in class. There is increased accountability.” The improvement program is done on the computer, and Mann said he can access each individual student’s results and time logged. He said that he frequently has students come into his office to discuss their progress, and they seem to want to do better. So far, Mann reported that the 15 students have logged 57 hours and 22 minutes of collective time, and have improved 79 math skills. The program takes up 20 minutes per school day, but students can also access it from home if they desire. “We are finding time in the regular school day,” Jarell said. “We are not going to pull them out of music or art. A lot of these kids look forward to that and the last thing we want to do is take that away from them.” Barboursville
Jarell said that while they are targeting the achievement gap, they are also maintaining their focus on all levels of achievement. “This is not going to be our sole focus,” he said. “Everything else is going to have to stay in place.” Barboursville Middle has created a new program to increase test scores among students with disabilities. So far, it is in a test stage, which is using 15 students to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. The goal of the program is to increase each students STAR assessment grade level by one full level per semester. The test group includes only sixth graders and tests at an average grade level of 3.5. The lowest grade level is 2.3 and the highest is 6.1. “We’ve talked to the kids and they know what’s going on,” said Curtis Mann, assistant principal of Barboursville Middle and head of the improvement program. “Al-
Library Aides Helpful to Cabell Midland Students By Alyssa Russell For The Cabell Standard
The library is a popular place among students at break and during both lunches according to librarian Regina Sanders. However, few people realize that the library aides are of great assistance to Sanders. “In a school this size we circulate 30,000 books a year,” Sanders said. “Without assistance, I don’t think I could possibly get everything cataloged, shelved and re-shelved. Due to the size of the school, it would be an impossible task to keep everything on the shelves, getting materials ordered and sorted.” The busiest time of the year
is often thought by students to be around the holidays. However according to senior Jared Rice, that is not the case. "The beginning of the year is probably the busiest time of year, like when they bring in the freshmen and are showing them what to do and how the books are organized," Rice said. The aides do much more than just check in and check out books. They work to keep the library a neat and welcoming place. "They run the circulation desk, which means they check items in and check items out," Sanders said. "They put on book covers, design the display cases outside of the library, which can be like promoting the library or upcoming school
events." The library aides' jobs may seem simple, but according to Rice, it can be harder than it appears. They work every day to keep books on the shelves and to keep the display cases outside looking nice, he said. "I would say the hardest thing we do is designing and making the display cases," Rice said. "We have to make them look good. My favorite thing to do is put away books because it is pretty easy." The library is open to students from 7:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.; however during school hours, students must have a hall pass. In order to become an aide, students must sign up for a library science class with their counselor.
Middle has one of the longest school days in the county with eight hours of instructional time. While this program may increase the proficiency levels of students with disabilities, Smith warned that it might not necessarily show on the WESTEST 2. “The standards you’re teaching don’t necessarily match up with what the WESTEST 2 teaches,” he said. He said the reason for the discrepancy is because the WESTEST 2 does not follow the standards of Common Core the county has used for the past five years, but that this would be remedied by next school year as the state unveils a new standardized assessment. Both Cabell Midland High School and Barboursville Middle School are working on their strategic plans, which are due to the state’s education department on Dec. 1.
DINNER FROM PAGE 1 haven’t stopped yet and won’t until we get back from our trip to Ireland during spring break.” The Collegium choir recently attended a Renaissance Festival that took place in North Carolina; here, students were given a look at different cultures of the time period through various performances, foods and activities. “At the Renaissance Festival we went around and were exposed to different cultures in those times and saw a bunch of performances with instruments, jokes, magic tricks, and belly dancing,” junior Brooke Alexander said. “We learned a lot just through experience.” At the end of each school year, an audition is held for students interested in joining Collegium the next year. There isn’t a lot required of a student to make it into the program, besides common knowledge of music and
singing. “When students audition for Collegium, I’m looking for students who demonstrate the ability to read music or that they have the potential to learn to read it quickly,” Harkless said. “Then, I look for a good quality voice, not necessarily a solo voice because you don’t need those to have a good choir but voices that will blend well. “So I’m looking for a quality voice that can blend, a student that demonstrates the ability to read music and that by all appearance to me has a good work ethic.” The Collegium will hold their annual Christmas Madrigal Dinner this December on the 13th and 14th. Students and the community can look for ticket sales soon. For information on the show or tickets call 304-743-7400.

The Cabell Standard
Cabell Midland boys finish as state runner-up By Justin Waybright email@example.com
ONA – It was an all-out pack attack that helped propel the Knights forward at the 2013 AAA state cross country meet. Only 45 seconds separated top five boys: Nick Salmons, Brandon Atkinson, Jonathan Hathaway, Eric Wooten and Hunter Adkins. They all ran under 17 minutes, or faster than 5:28 per mile for the 3.1-mile race, and all finished among the top 20 overall. The team performance secured a second place finish with a score of 77 points, just 13 points behind champion University. Coach Chris Parsons looked toward his boys after they received their runner-up award. "We put the top five in the top 20 runners,” he said. “All were under 17 minutes - talk about running as a pack. We were a close second to University – our guys can walk away knowing they had a good run." Sophomore Salmons placed eighth, making him an all-state runner.
Hannah Morgan The Cabell Midland Knights pose for a picture after winning second place during the 2013 State AAA Cross Country meet. Salmons ran in a pack of 10 with fewer than four seconds separating the group. Coming into the last 400 meters, he was able to pull away from Winfield's R.J. Weiford and Musselman's Shane Rigsby, who both nipped at his heels. Less than a second separated the three. "This feels awesome," Salmons said. "I give credit to coach – he's the best we've ever had, and he's always there for us." When asked what was going through his mind while racing
through the last mile, Salmons said, "I've got to get in the top 10." That he did. Parsons is proud of Salmons for stepping up when he needed to the most. "Nick was battling a group of 10 runners, and when he hit the track, he was in 10th, but passed two people during the last 50 meters," he said. "He's a whole different runner than last year, and he's got a promising future for us." The Lady Knights placed eighth overall with sophomore Hannah
Morgan finishing 19th with a time of 20:21. Fewer than 90 seconds separated her from teammates Allison Short, Katie Riedel, Christa Glancy-Story and Kendell McNeely. The girls placed eighth out of 12 teams. Morgantown won first place. "Everybody was under 22 minutes, and that was great," Parsons said. "Hannah had a fantastic state meet and wasn't even in our top seven when the season started."
Nick Salmons He continued, "Hannah and the girls are pumped for next season."
Teams Look for Good Luck in Game Day Rituals By Alyssa Russell Cabell Midland High School
The sports teams at Cabell Midland are thought of as being serious and only working on technique to improve how they do in their sport. However, many of the teams have various pregame or before match rituals, some are a bit less serious than others. “We’re not a serious team at all,” said senior golf team member Seth Kinker. “I mean we are all really skilled, and it just seems like no matter what mood we’re in whether we’re happy, mad or sad we can still play.” Though many of the rituals are
lesser known to students outside of the teams, some are seen every game and looked forward to by supporters, such as the football team’s pregame rituals. “Before games, we do the Haka, which is the chant we scream,” said senior football player Brooks Gillispie. “It basically means we’re going to get you.” Some of the teams at Midland take a more religious approach and then do things to get everyone pumped up. “We like to start off with a prayer so we can make everyone feel safe and thank God for everything He’s given us like a soccer game,” said junior soccer player Koriana Blevins. “We also do this ‘I believe we will win’ chant that
gets the team pumped and ready to play soccer.” The rituals are often thought up by players on the team or the coaches; according to Gillispie, one of the football coaches brought the Haka to the team last year. But, that is not the case for everyone, some rituals just happen. “It’s not really a ritual just after school you get a little hungry, and I’ve given Mark a ride to practice and tournaments since we were freshmen,” Kinker said. “We get something to eat, get dressed and go to the first tee.” The rituals at Midland are normal compared to some of the rituals players have heard of, such as one in the golf world.
