Knights go undefeated in 2012, beat Hurricane 31-13 By Bishop Nash For The Cabell Standard

By Christin Daugherty Some of the best relationships begin with friendships. Some of the best friendships end in allout war. And sometimes there is a war zone right in the middle of our living rooms. Perhaps all we need sometimes is someone else’s perspective. Someone who is able to look at a situation with a clear head and an open mind. That’s where I come in. My name is Christin, and I am a mother, college graduate, exgirlfriend, daughter, bartender, sister, baby-momma…....let’s just stop right there for now and say that I’m “well-rounded” and always being sought out for adSEE CHRISTIN ON PAGE 4

Cabell Midland's final regular season game ended just as previous nine; with a victory. The Knights will head into the high school football postseason undefeated for the first time in school history after defeating the Hurricane Redskins 31-13 at Knights Field in Ona on Friday. “These kids are battle-tested,” Cabell Midland head coach Luke Salmons said, “So to go into the playoffs with that mindset is a pretty great thing.” The final game of the regular reason was also Senior Night for the Knights, but being ranked No.1 in West Virginia secures home-field advantage for Mid-

Knights State Champions! By Jim Parsons For The Cabell Standard

Cabell Midland boys trained hard during the season with one thought in mind; bring the State Championship title back to Midland. And bring it back they did, Oct. 27th, by scoring 37 points to runner up University High's 75 points. Jefferson came in a distant 3rd with 111 points (last year Midland lost the title to Jefferson High by a mere 3 points). Midland's top gun, Jacob Burcham, pulled away from the pack during the first half mile and continued to stretch his lead. Announcer Pat Riley called the race, with a "booming" voice to the fans that could be heard all the way to Route 60. Excitement grew as Riley announced Burcham was nearing the Chris Parsons Track still running a fast

The crowd lets out a big roar even though most represent 11 other teams in the race. Burcham's the first West Virginia high school runner to finish an XC State Meet under 15 minutes.

PSC Rules on Mountaineer Gas Base Rates On October 31st, the Public Service Commission ordered an adjustment in the base rates charged by Mountaineer Gas allowing the company to increase its revenue by $6.265 million, or 2.54 percent. Mountaineer requested an increase of $12,187,218, or 4.9 percent. The Commission recently ordered a decrease in Mountaineer’s rate for recovering its purchased gas costs. Because of the concurrent decrease in Mountaineer’s Purchased Gas Adjustment there will be a net decrease in the average monthly residential bills of approximately $5.24, or 8.3 percent. The natural gas utility’s base rate typically accounts for approximately one third of a customer’s gas bill and covers all the company’s expenses to deliver natural gas to its customers except for the cost of purchased gas. The base rate includes an allowance for a return on the company investment, costs of repair, improvement and maintaining utility property, taxes, and depre-

Snow Storm hits Cabell County By Justin Waybright

CABELL COUNTY – Residents from Culloden to Huntington woke up Tuesday (October 30th) morning to a chaotic scene: closed roads, no light or heat, fallen trees and power lines everywhere. An early winter storm had wreaked havoc across the state. Heavy snow snapped power lines, split tree branches in-half and trapped thousands across the county with no electric and no way out of their homes. More than 260,000 people in the state of West Virginia had no power, according to records from Appalachian Power. WV Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin issued a State of Emergency warning drivers of dangerous conditions. “Due to inclement weather affecting the entire state, only essential state employees are to report to work today,” stated Tomblin in a Tuesday press release. “Non-essential employees are encouraged to stay off the roadways as our road crews continue their work.” More than 60 percent of schools in West Virginia were cancelled because of poor driving conditions and no power. Cold wind and heavy snow continued to make conditions outside even worse as the day progressed. By 9 p.m., 4,345 customers in Cabell County were still without power, and 30 per-

Firefighters cut through tree branches to clear the road. cent of residents across the Mountain State were in the dark, according to Appalachian Power. EMS responders, firefighters and law enforcement officials worked nonstop to rescue area residents. From Monday night through Wednesday evening, county dispatchers received 100s of calls regarding power lines laying on streets, broken trees and numerous car wrecks. Milton Fire Captain Bob Legg and his crew worked vigorously to rescue and help local storm victims. Legg said power lines were a big threat. “You’ve got to be careful,” the Fire Captain said. “Electric lines are falling and arcing…It’s bad.” Legg continued, “We are always prepared.” Shortly after 10 a.m. on Wednesday, an ambulance raced through Milton, lights flashing. The Cabell County EMS driver

turned off U.S. Route 60 onto the Smith Hollow area. About a half mile down a gravel road, and up a steep, slippery hill, Milton firefighters, Cabell County deputies and EMS responders were standing around a man. Branches and tree limbs were sprinkled across the cold asphalt. A man lay motionless on his back. It was a team effort as law enforcement, firemen, EMS responders and the town’s mayor placed the man on a stretcher and into an ambulance. The injured man was rushed to Cabell-Huntington Hospital. Firefighters revved up their chainsaws and cut through the fallen tree. They cleared the roadway and headed back to the fire station. Milton Mayor Tom Canterbury praised the hard work his town’s fire and police departments had

Superstorm Sandy delays Arrival of Columbus Ships Pinta and Nina in Huntington HUNTINGTON - Due to Superstorm Sandy, the Columbus Ships, Pinta and Nina will now open in Huntington on Wednesday November 14th. The ships will be docked at the Huntington Yacht Club at Harris Riverfront Park, until their departure early morning Tuesday November 20th. The ‘Nina’ was built completely by hand and without the use of power tools. Archaeology magazine called the ship “the

most historically correct Columbus replica ever built.” The “Pinta” was recently built in Brazil to accompany the Nina on all of her travels. She is a larger version of the archetypal caravel. Historians consider the caravel the Space Shuttle of the fifteenth century. Both ships tour together as a new and enhanced ‘sailing museum’ for the purpose of educating the public and school children on the ‘caravel’, a Por-

tuguese ship used by Columbus and many early explorers to discover the world. While in port, the general public is invited to visit the ships for a walk-aboard, self-guided tour. Admission charges are $8.00 for adults, $ 7.00 for seniors, and $6.00 for students 5 - 16 . Children 4 and under are Free. The ships are open every day from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. No reservations necessary. Teachers or organizations

• 1 teaspoon sugar • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch pieces • 3/4 cup milk

Directions 1. Melt the butter on the stovetop in a Dutch oven or other oven-safe sauté pan with high sides. Stir in the onion and celery, then cover the pan and cook them for 7 to 8 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add the flour, stirring for 1 to 2 minutes to lightly brown it. 2. Whisk the chicken stock into the pan. When it starts to thicken, whisk in the milk. Add the sage, thyme, chicken, and vegetables, continuing to stir until the mixture is heated through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. 3. Remove the pan from the stovetop and heat the oven to 375 F. Meanwhile, make the biscuit topping by combining the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the butter and use your fingertips to rub it into the dry ingredients. Add the milk and stir briskly, just until the dough pulls together. 4. Flour your work surface and turn the dough onto it. Using floured hands, knead the dough two or three times, then flatten it to about 1/2 inch thick. Using a small round cutter, cut the dough into biscuits and place as many as will fit, barely touching, on top of the filling. (You can bake any extras separately, on a lightly greased pie plate, for about 15 minutes.) 5. Bake the potpie until the biscuits are golden brown and the filling is bubbly, about 20 to 30 minutes. Then let it cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving it. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Cabell County opens Early Voting in new Location

Mr. Henry

ONA – Hundreds of voters poured into the Cabell County Sheriff’s Field Office Oct. 24, to cast their ballots in the county’s first satellite location. The early voting process became more convenient and accessible for area residents. No longer did they have to travel to Huntington to cast votes. Despite cold, rainy weather, people still crowded into Ona Monday, Oct. 29, to take advantage of this new opportunity. Local residents Debbie and Joe Chinn were happy to enjoy voting in a nearby location. The field office is less than 3 miles from their Ona home. “This is very convenient for us,” Joe Chinn said. “We appreciate them putting this in here for us.” His wife Debbie agreed. “We had no plans today, so we figured why not get out and vote,” she said. “It’s such an honor to get to vote. You shouldn’t pass it up.” Both are Christians, who agree that the right to choose national and local leaders is an important duty for American citizens. “We will all stand before God one day, and we don’t want to put someone in office, who doesn’t

After the Chinns left, more and more voters filled the waiting room in the field office to cast their ballots. During the first day of early voting, 780 county residents casts votes, with 215 completing ballots in Ona, according to records at the Cabell County Clerk’s Office. Ona had received 319 voters on the second day, 298 voters on the third day and 310 voters on the fourth day. Cabell County Clerk Karen Cole was pleased with the success of the new early voting location.

“It’s been great, and we’ve had a tremendous response,” Cole said. “From day-one we’ve had a huge turnout.” The idea to open the sheriff’s field office to early voting began about 4 years ago when the legislature passed a law allowing Cabell County to open a satellite location, Cole said. “The Cabell County Commission agreed on Ona, and they have been on board,” she said. “The sheriff was helpful in giving us the largest office there. We all worked together to make it happen.” The 13-day window for early voting ended Saturday.

Finally… it’s Trick or Treat Time!

This story was told to me by an elderly veteran as we began talking about jobs and how we started on our very first job. Mr. Henry was in the military and was home on leave and he began working at Beard Mortuary in Huntington. This was in the early 1950’s. He went to work the very first day and his boss told him of a tragic event that had happened to a young woman who had just given birth to a baby boy. The woman’s husband had been in an auto accident and was killed. Beard Mortuary was in charge of the arrangements and the viewing was the next day, his second day on the job. He was told to take the company car and pick up the lady for the viewing of her husband. The next day Mr. Henry drove to an apartment building and found the lady who was living with her Mother as she had just given birth and there were complications during the delivery. Mr. Henry walked up many stairs to get to the apartment. The woman was grief stricken and was very small for someone who had just had a baby. She told him she would not be able to attend the viewing or the funeral as she could not go up or down stairs for several weeks. The woman was in tears. Mr. Henry told her not to worry and that he would CARRY her to the car and take her to the viewing. The woman and her mother were very thankful. Down the stairs he went. When the viewing was over he drove her home, picked her up and carried her up the stairs. He told her not to worry that he would be back to carry her down the stairs to the funeral. The funeral home told him his only concern for the next several days was to take care of that lady and nothing else. The day of the funeral Mr. Henry arrived, went up the stairs, went back down the stairs and took the woman to the funeral home where the service was held. He stayed by the lady’s side and helped in anyway he could. He said he felt so sad for her. After the funeral he drove her home, walked up the stairs carrying the young lady and said goodbye. He said he never saw her again, but heard she had remarried a very good man and lived in another state. As a young military man, Mr. Henry served his country but he also served someone in need. When I heard this story, I was so moved by his compassion. The funeral home was not thinking of money, but the concern was of the family of the man killed in the wreck. May we all have more compassion for those in need.

“Pumpkins and Politics” Thought for the week: Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalm 33:12 (KJV) It’s that time of year again. Fall season for the pumpkins and time to elect a president for our country. So, you are thinking “What does this have in common?” Well, there are all sizes of pumpkins, all kinds of political promises. Which one would make the best jack-o-lantern, and which one is going to keep his word? Our United States has its free government system of deciding who it elects for mayor, governors, senators, and president as leader of the nation. While running especially for the presidential office, why so much bickering and dissension in debates? Do you think the average American citizen wants to hear all these past problems, blames and attacks of character on each opponent? I am sure, the majority of voting people, would rather hear from a person seeking the vote to lead this country in a manner on his honesty, improvement, and integrity; and it would be good to hear that he upheld what is still printed on our money, “In God We Trust”. We are the greatest country in the world, we are strong, and we are the first to take care of other troubled countries in time of need. But it seems like we have forgotten all our forefathers have taught us. I know there are many issues for each state to be considered, such as coal and gas in our own WV. What has happened to people, that we cannot agree on what is best for others? Has greed so overtaken us that we no longer care? The mind still has a conscience, and to be content with yourself, your soul will let you know this, any leader who holds a position should realize this. The federal government has the ability to change laws and enforce them but no matter what religious faith we have, in the Bible Isaiah 66:23 says – And it shall come to pass that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord. There are tracking devices to know where we are, and what we are doing, at all times. But government does not know what we are thinking, or what is in our heart. Only God, who created us, knows that. The Lord seeth not as man seeth, for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7. Let us always pray that God will continue to care for us, as the greatest nation on earth. Prayer: Our Father in heaven, forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, for thine is the kingdom and glory forever. Amen.

CHAMPIONS FROM PAGE 1 time is he did it all alone. No one to push him. Far behind Burcham was runner-up, Matthew Brafford, of George Washington (15:42), who dueled with Midland's Avery Campbell the last 200 meters; Campbell finished 3rd with a time of 15:57. Riley then announced that Midland had 5 runners on the track, "I knew we had it," quoting Midland senior Brian Lawhon. About this time I unveiled a small sign that Signs Unlimited had made for me several days before that read, "State Champions 2012 Boys Cross Country.” Several of the runners broke into a big smile including Coach Parsons and senior Jeremy Waugh said "This makes it so much more real.” Midland graduates 4 of its top 5 runners next Spring, but the future looks good as they have several younger runners just out of the elite 7. Barboursville and Milton Middle Schools also have some good runners heading to Midland soon. Jacob Burcham, Avery Campbell and Mason Dino earned All State honors by placing in the top 10. Congratulations to Coach Parsons and his entire Midland team for bringing the title back to Cabell Midland High School. Team finishers: 1. Cabell Midland (37 points). 1. Jacob Burcham, (14:58); 2.

Residents in 16 Additional Counties Eligible to Apply for Federal Disaster Unemployment Assistance Cabell County Included CHARLESTON - Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA) benefits will be available to qualifying persons residing or working in Boone, Cabell, Clay, Greenbrier, Jackson, Lincoln, Mason, McDowell, Mercer, Mingo, Monroe, Pocahontas, Roane, Tyler, Webster, and Wood counties. This announcement amends the disaster declared by Governor Tomblin and President Obama on July 23, 2012 to include these additional counties for individual assistance. New claims for DUA need to be filed by November 26, 2012. Those eligible for benefits, in addition to individuals who lost their jobs directly due to the se-

vere storms and straight-line winds, may also include: (1) individuals who are unable to reach their job or self-employment location because they must travel through the affected area and are prevented from doing so by the disaster, (2) individuals who were to commence employment or self-employment but were prevented by the disaster, (3) individuals who became the breadwinner or major support for a household because of the death of the head of household due to the disaster, or (4) individuals who cannot work or perform services in self-employment because of an injury caused as a direct result of the disaster.

Unemployment is a direct result of the major disaster if the unemployment resulted from: (1) the physical damage or destruction of the place of employment; (2) the physical inaccessibility of the place of employment due to its closure by the federal, state, or local government in immediate response to the disaster; or (3) lack of work, or loss of revenues, if, prior to the disaster, the employer or self-employed business received at least a majority of its revenue or income from an entity in the major disaster area that was damaged or destroyed in the disaster or an entity in the major disaster area closed by the federal, state, or local government.

The benefits cover self-employed workers not usually entitled to regular unemployment insurance, including farmers. People applying for DUA need to provide proof of past earnings, such as business records or bank statements and their most recent income tax form at the time they file their claim. Any WorkForce West Virginia One Stop Office can accept DUA claims, including the Beckley, Charleston, Elkins, Greenbrier Valley, Huntington, Logan, Mercer County, Parkersburg, Summersville, Welch and Wheeling offices which serve the affected counties. “The destruction of the storm was far reaching – encompassing

residents as well as the workforce in these counties,” said Russell Fry, acting executive of WorkForce West Virginia. “If you live or work in one of these counties and have been unemployed due to the severe storm and straightline winds that occurred beginning June 29, 2012, you should apply for these federal benefits.” In addition to assistance filing a DUA claim, WorkForce West Virginia One Stop Offices offer reemployment services, including testing, counseling and job placement. More information, including local office locations, is available online at or by calling 1-800252-5617.

Veterans Day 2012

Tuesday,November 6,2012 – Page 9

Honoring all Veterans for their Dedication! The Story of Taps The 24-note melancholy bugle call known as “taps” is thought to be a revision of a French bugle signal, called “tattoo,” that notified soldiers to cease an evening’s drinking and return to their garrisons. It was sounded an hour before the final bugle call to end the day by extinguishing fires and lights. The last five measures of the tattoo resemble taps. The word “taps” is an alteration of the obsolete word “taptoo,” derived from the Dutch “taptoe.” Taptoe was the command — “Tap toe!” — to shut (“toe to”) the “tap” of a keg. The revision that gave us present-day taps was made during America’s Civil War by Union Gen. Daniel Adams Butterfield, heading a brigade camped at Harrison Landing, Va., near Richmond. Up to that time, the U.S. Army’s infantry call to end the day was the French final call, “L’Extinction des feux.” Gen. Butterfield decided the “lights out” music was too formal to signal the day’s end. One day in July 1862 he recalled the tattoo music and hummed a version of it to an aide, who wrote it down in music. Butterfield then asked the brigade bugler, Oliver W. Norton, to play the notes and, after listening, lengthened and shortened them while keeping his original melody. He ordered Norton to play this new call at the end of each day thereafter, instead of the regulation call. The music was heard and appreciated by other brigades, who asked for copies and adopted this bugle call. It was even adopted by Confederate buglers. This music was made the official Army bugle call after the war, but not given the name “taps” until 1874. The first time taps was played at a military funeral may also have been in Virginia soon after Butterfield composed it. Union Capt. John Tidball, head of an artillery battery, ordered it played for the burial of a cannoneer killed in action. Not wanting to reveal the battery’s position in the woods to the enemy nearby, Tidball substituted taps for the traditional three rifle volleys fired over the grave. Taps was played at the funeral of Confederate Gen. Stonewall Jackson 10 months after it was composed. Army infantry regulations by 1891 required taps to be played at military funeral ceremonies. Taps now is played by the military at burial and memorial services, to accompany the lowering of the flag and to signal the “lights out” command at day’s end.

Veterans Day 2012

The Origin of Veterans Day In 1921, an unknown World War I American soldier was buried in Arlington National Cemetery. This site, on a hillside overlooking the Potomac River and the city of Washington, D.C., became the focal point of reverence for America’s veterans. Similar ceremonies occurred earlier in England and France, where an unknown soldier was buried in each nation’s highest place of honor (in England, Westminster Abbey; in France, the Arc de Triomphe). These memorial gestures all took place on November 11, giving universal recognition to the celebrated ending of World War I fighting at 11 a.m., November 11, 1918 (the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month). The day became known as “Armistice Day.” Armistice Day officially received its name in America in 1926 through a Congressional resolution. It became a national holiday 12 years later by similar Congressional action. If the idealistic hope had been realized that World War I was “the War to end all wars,” November 11 might still be called Armistice Day. But only a few years after the holiday was proclaimed, war broke out in Europe. Sixteen and one-half million Americans took part. Four hundred seven thousand of them died in service, more than 292,000 in battle. Armistice Day Changed To Honor All Veterans The first celebration using the term Veterans Day occurred in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1947. Raymond Weeks, a World War II veteran, organized "National Vet-

Hidden Trails

erans Day," which included a parade and other festivities, to honor all veterans. The event was held on November 11, then designated Armistice Day. Later, U.S. Representative Edward Rees of Kansas proposed a bill that would change Armistice Day to Veterans Day. In 1954, Congress passed the bill that President Eisenhower signed proclaiming November 11 as Veterans Day. Raymond Weeks received the Presidential Citizens Medal from President Reagan in November 1982. Weeks' local parade and ceremonies are now an annual event celebrated nationwide. On Memorial Day 1958, two more unidentified American war dead were brought from overseas and interred in the plaza beside the unknown soldier of World War I. One was killed in World War II, the other in the Korean War. In 1984, an unknown serviceman from the Vietnam War was placed alongside the others. The remains from Vietnam were exhumed May 14, 1998, identified as Air Force 1st Lt. Michael Joseph Blassie, and removed for burial. To honor these men, symbolic of all Americans who gave their lives in all wars, an Army honor guard, the 3rd U.S. Infantry (The Old Guard), keeps day and night vigil. A law passed in 1968 changed the national commemoration of Veterans Day to the fourth Monday in October. It soon became apparent, however, that November 11 was a date of historic significance to many Americans. Therefore, in 1978 Congress returned the observance to its traditional date.

National Ceremonies Held at Arlington National Cemetery The focal point for official, national ceremonies for Veterans Day continues to be the memorial amphitheater built around the Tomb of the Unknowns. At 11 a.m. on November 11, a combined color guard representing all military services executes “Present Arms” at the tomb. The nation’s tribute to its war dead is symbolized by the laying of a presidential wreath. The bugler plays “taps.” The rest of the ceremony takes place in the amphitheater. Veterans Day ceremonies at Arlington and elsewhere are coordinated by the President’s Veterans Day National Committee. Chaired by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, the committee represents national veteran’s organizations. Governors of many states and U.S. territories appoint Veterans Day chairpersons who, in cooperation with the National Committee and the Department of Defense, arrange and promote local ceremonies.

DNR adds to new Public Hunting and Fishing Areas

David Payne Sr.

Column by David Payne Sr.

You lose some. You gain some. You hope that you can gain more than you lose. Last year, hunters lost the Briery Mountain Wildlife Management Area in Preston County, but recently the DNR has announced that it is adding two new WMAs – Little Canaan in Tucker County and Sideling Hill in Morgan County. The state operates dozens and

dozens of WMAs – most of the property is leased from a variety of private individuals (the Sand Hill WMA increased vastly in size a few years ago courtesy of the O'Brien family), businesses or other government agencies. Many of the WMAs are leased from timber companies. The Hughes River WMA in Wirt County – among the state's largest – is one that comes to mind. It is leased from Westvaco. It's a strong, long-lasting relationship. The DNR is glad to make the property available and the timber company is certainly happy to have the deer herd there kept in check to limit the damage deer do to their timber resources. It's hard to plant new stands, for instance, if deer are killing all your young trees (deer are very hard on young trees). Some of the leases, like Briery Mountain, are less secure. You could almost think of them as a time-share. The DNR leased the Briery Mountain property from the West Virginia Army National Guard, who needed it for training and terminated the lease. Each

WMA has its own lease, so the situation varies from site to site, but most of them, once acquired, are very long-lasting. There may have been other lost WMAs, but Briery Mountain is the only one I can remember in my 13 years of covering the outdoors in West Virginia. The DNR – originally the state Game and Fish Commission – has been in the real-estate business for about a century now. It began by simply complimenting federal lands set aside for preservation (with no hunting) and they were places where the DNR could carry out various experiments and trials as it worked to restore game populations, which had been decimated. By the 1980s, however, deer and turkey populations were re-established throughout the state and there wasn't much need for game refuges, but a new trend emerged that put the DNR back in the realestate market. Our modern WMA concept can be traced back to Bob Miles, who retired as DNR wildlife-resources chief in 1994. Miles noticed the trend that access for hunters and

Outdoors Roundup Hunters Helping the Hungry needs Cash Since the program's inception in 1992, Hunters Helping the Hungry has made 770,000 pounds of nutritious venison available to needy West Virginia families, but officials say the program is capable of doing much more. Meat processing costs $1.45 per pound – the average deer provides around 36 pounds of ground venison – and the meat is picked up by the Mountaineer Food Bank or Huntington Area Food Bank for distribution. The food banks are paid only the cost of pickup and distribution. The Division of Natural Resources is prohibited by law from using any license fees to support the program, which must operate on donations only. Hunters have always been generous with game, so generous that officials have always had to limit the number of participating meat processors to limit the program to only process what venison it can afford. There are only 18 participating processors in West Virginia. The closest participating processors are: Nelson’s

Custom Processing in Milton, Rolfe’s Custom & Commercial Meat Processing, Inc. in Ona, Hilltop Meats in Sissonville and K & l Processing in New Haven. For more information, visit tm or call (304) 558-2771. State Parks picking up pieces after Frankenstorm West Virginia state park employees have been digging out of snow, clearing roadways and restoring electric and telephone service following widespread damage caused by, ironically, a blizzard from Tropical Storm Sandy, according to West Virginia State Parks and Recreation Chief Ken Caplinger. “One inch to two feet of snow has covered about 70 percent of our state parks and forests, depending upon the area,” Caplinger said. “Most areas also received extensive rainfall and varying degrees of wind, which in turn resulted in many fallen trees that caused even more damage.” It hasn't been very long since state parks had cleaned up from the summer's derecho storm that blast hurricane-force winds

across the state. “Two unusual major storms in less than four months is one for our record books,” Caplinger said. Beech Fork was open, but had only partial power and Cedar Creek, Cedar Creek and Greenbrier State Forest remained open but had no power. Among the temporarily closed parks were: Audra, Babcock, Berkeley Springs, Blackwater Falls, Bluestone, Cabwaylingo State Forest, Cacapon, Canaan Valley, Carnifex Ferry, Coopers Rock State Forest, Hawks Nest, Holly River, Kanawha State Forest, Kumbrabow State Forest, Stonewall Jackson, Twin Falls and Valley Falls. Hawk's Nest aerial Tram resumes just before Season Ends As mentioned here last month, the iconic Hawk's Nest aerial tram was shut down temporarily for repairs. Officials reported last week that the tram has been repaired. It was operating for a few days until the season ended Oct. 28. The tram, which takes visitors on a 500-vertical-foot descent into the New River Gorge from the canyon rim, will reopen in April.

anglers was becoming more restrictive. He foresaw a day when only landowners would have access to hunting and fishing. The obvious argument against this was that there were already millions of acres of federal land available for hunting and fishing. Miles, however, realized the impracticality of this – all these lands were in the eastern part of the state and a long drive away from most of the mountainstate's population. Miles believed it vital to set aside property upon which any properly-licensed person could hunt or fish. To pay for it, he created the conservation stamp, which hunters are required to purchase in addition to their licenses. His vision was for every citizen to have a state-managed hunting and fishing area within a two-hour drive of their home. The program has exceeded his original goal – now most residents have a WMA within a half hour drive. For instance, there are nine WMAs within a 40 minute drive of Putnam County. The Little Canaan WMA (3,168

acres) near Davis was acquired from the Canaan Valley Institute with conservation-stamp money coupled with funds from the West Virginia Outdoor Heritage Conservation Fund. It includes three miles of the Blackwater River. In addition to hunting opportunities, the WMA offers trout fishing. It also boasts a fishing pier for the physically-challenged. For more information, call (304) 825-6787. Sideling Hill (2,507 acres) is located near Largent in Morgan County. The land had been used for three generations by a hunting club. It is heavily forested and will be managed for forest game. For more information, call (304) 8223551. The DNR has been very creative not only with how it spends the conservation-stamp monies, but with cooperation with private citizens, businesses, non-profits and other groups to make these opportunities possible. No matter where you live, there's always a WMA close by. Contact David Payne Sr. at

New Wildfire App Brings American Red Cross Safety Information to Mobile Devices “Blaze Tracker” features give users warning, alerts and fire information for locations of their choice CHARLESTON - On the heels of a major drought and busy wildfire season, the American Red Cross has released its official Wildfire App. The app puts lifesaving information right in the hands of people who live in or who visit wildfire prone areas. This free app—available in English or Spanish—is the fourth in a series created by the American Red Cross, the nation’s leader in emergency preparedness, for use on both iPhone and Android platforms. The Wildfire App comes after the highly successful First Aid, Hurricane and Earthquake Apps, which have more than 1.2 million users. “The Wildfire App gives West Virginia residents instant access to our ‘Blaze Tracker’ features so they can prepare their households and businesses and make critical decisions that can save lives.” said Becky Howard, Regional Chief Development Offi-

cer. This year, the Red Cross has launched 11 wildfire relief operations spanning 10 states. According to the National Interagency Fire Center, as of October 4, wildfires have burned 8.8 million acres in the United States this year. The Wildfire App includes: • The “Blaze Tracker” trio of features-which can be customized for alerts specific to locations where they live, travel or have loved ones: o “Blaze Warnings” which let users see areas where NOAA has issued warnings that conditions are favorable for potential wildfires; o “Blaze Alerts” inform users when a wildfire has begun within 100 miles of any locations monitored; o “Blaze Path” from which provides users with a current view of an existing wildfire’s perimeter, how it has spread and the fire’s current location when available; • Comprehensive reporting of all wildfire activity for

every geographic area in the United States; • Options to view the app in English or Spanish based on user language settings; • One touch “I’m safe” messaging that allows users to broadcast reassurance to family and friends via social media outlets that they are out of harm’s way; • Locations of open Red Cross shelters; • Simple steps and checklists people can use to create a family emergency plan; • Preloaded content that gives users instant access to critical action steps, even without mobile connectivity; • Toolkit with flashlight, strobe light and audible alarm; and • Badges users can earn through interactive quizzes and share on social networks. “The Red Cross has emerged as a leader in mobile preparedness. One reason is our ability to provide users with location customization. Wildfire App users can receive notification of wild-

fire risk and activity within 100 miles of locations that matter most to them – so they can help protect their loved ones and their property,” Howard added. National Red Cross experts in health, safety and preparedness have thoroughly reviewed and field tested the information and advice provided in Red Cross apps. A recent Red Cross survey found that apps have tied social media as the fourth most popular way for people to get information during emergencies, making the Red Cross app development effort even more important. The Wildfire App can be found in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store for Android by searching for American Red Cross. Apps can help prepare people for disasters, but they are not a substitute for training. Red Cross First Aid and CPR/AED training empowers people to know how to respond to emergencies in case advanced medical help is delayed. People can go to for course information and to regis-

ter. The Red Cross responds to nearly 70,000 disasters each year and we help people get ready to respond to emergencies by providing these apps for free. The Red Cross needs the help of the public to continue this lifesaving effort. People can make a donation to the Red Cross by going to, texting REDCROSS to 90999 or by calling 1-800-REDCROSS. About the American Red Cross: The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies more than 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission. For more information, please visit or join our blog at

Photography 101: Three-Dog-Night…I mean Day

ISO: 100 Shutter: 1/125 Aperture/F-stop: 5.6 Flash: None Animal portraits can be difficult. The main thing to remember is just have fun with them. Dogs’ eyes are naturally dark. Therefore, if no good light source is available, use your camera’s flash to show off their facial expressions. Getting their attention can be a challenge. Other than bribing them to sit still with a treat, sometimes something unorthodox is required: bark at them. It often works. All you need is the dog to sit still for a split second so can get your shot.

It is often best to get down on the same level as the person or animal you are photographing. Kneeling on one knee worked well for this particular shot. Staying back about 20 feet also helped—the dogs were not distracted. Editor’s Note: This week begins a new column, “Photography 101” in the Cabell Standard. Reporter/Photographer Justin Waybright will be bringing his knowledge of photography to our readers.Through his camera lens, Justin will show – as well as explain – to us how the photo was taken as well as the best settings to use.

KNIGHTS FROM PAGE 1 spell the end of Hurricane's season either, but the 6-4 Redskins will likely have to battle on the road to fuel there postseason hopes. Hurricane is one of only three teams (Huntington, Capital) to which the Knights have trailed this season. “Hurricane played us well, I thought,” Salmons said, “We never got in a good rhythm and had a lot of penalties.” The Redskins knew throwing Midland off their normal tempo early was key, and they did just that. After converting fourth down twice on the opening drive, junior quarterback Jon Hensley punched it in on a 7-yard touchdown run capping off a nearly 6-and-a-half minute drive. The Knights fired back with their main weapon on the following drive when senior running back David Gaydosz ripped off a 33-yard burst in to score late in the first. Both teams burned enough time on offense for only one full drive per team in the first quarter.
