Work begins on new Barboursville Ambulance Station

Cabell Midland Knights edges Highlanders 14-13 By Bishop Nash

By Jack Bailey

BARBOURSVILLE – Several dozen city and county officials turned out for a groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, Sept. 21, for a new ambulance station in Barboursville. The new station, located on Riverview Drive in Barboursville, will be the eighth ambulance station in Cabell County. “This is a great day for Barboursville,” said Cabell County Commission President Nancy Cartmill. “We have been trying to build this for a couple of years.” Cartmill, the former mayor of Barboursville, said that once the new station is complete, the county should be well covered by ambulance service. County Commissioner Bob Bailey said that last year, Cabell County Emergency Medical Services responded to 2,200 calls in the Barboursville area from ambulance stations in other areas of the county. “That is why this station is so important to the people in this area,” Bailey said. “This is a wonderful thing.” With a station in Barboursville, SEE STATION ON PAGE 4

HUNTINGTON- It was that once in a blue moon opportunity that players, students, fans and sports writers drool over. The stars had aligned promising a storybook match-up: undefeated cross-county rivals tied #1 in West Virginia battling for supremacy, pride and The Shield. It is with unbelievable rarity that a contest of this potential magnitude lives up to its billing. This one did. Cabell Midland escaped Bob Sang Stadium with The Shield and a victory Friday as the Knights edged the Huntington Highlanders 14-13 in a bonafide Cabell County clash of the titans. “Huntington played a great game and lived up to everything that we thought,” said Cabell Midland head coach Luke

Knights' QB, Theodore Pettit, hands off to Kasey Thomas. Photo by Jim Parsons Salmons, “They're going to win a lot of football games.” The yearly hype of the contest was explosively inflated in 2012

when it became clear both sides would entered the night undefeated and splitting #1 in the state.

But to appropriately quote the 1986 film Highlander, there can be only one. “It was a great atmosphere for high school football and just to be apart of that is a great feeling,” Salmons said, “It's a great thing for both communities.” The night began slow for both offenses. Not that any one side was particularly sluggish, but the defenses were firing on all cylinders early and each never gave up. The Highlanders slowly crept into Midland territory midway through the first, but the Knights defense rose up in a huge way forcing Huntington running back Brandon Morrison to fumble at the Cabell Midland 2 yard line. Huntington's defense made their own big plays on defense when they forced Midland runSEE KNIGHTS ON PAGE 6

Local Attorney helps clients understand Bankruptcy

Tuesday,September 25,2012 – Page 3

WeeklyDevotional By Mary Jane

By Jack Bailey

HURRICANE – For the past 30 years, attorney Mitch Klein has been in the business of helping people navigate the uncertain waters of bankruptcy. Klein is the principal attorney with the Klein Law Firm, which has offices in Hurricane and Huntington and serves clients throughout western and central West Virginia. “The one thing that I often tell people is that they should have come to see me sooner,” Klein said. “They wait until the problem gets overwhelming.” Different factors can lead people to file for bankruptcy, but some of the most common that Klein has seen include loss of employment, medical bills, the rising cost of living, and probably the most common factor – credit card debt. “If you have credit card debt over $25,000 there is no way out of that, it's like quicksand,” Klein said. There are a number of misconceptions that people have about bankruptcy, Klein said. One of the most common ones is that changes to bankruptcy laws made in 2005 made it harder for individuals to file for bankruptcy. While the changes did impact people with higher incomes, Klein said that 90 percent of people in WestVirginia are not affected by the change. Another misconception is that filing for bankruptcy can ruin your credit rating for 10 years. While it can have a short term impact, Klein said, that if you are able to make regular house and car payments your credit rating can start to improve within 30-36 months. Another misconception is that filing for bankruptcy is expensive. Klein offers a free initial consultation, and after that rates are based on income. At the initial consultation, Klein said that he walks people through their monthly expenses and tries to determine if bankruptcy is the best option, and if so, whether Chapter 7, Chapter 11, or Chapter 13 is a better fit. After the initial consultation, the actual filing for bankruptcy is a relatively quick and easy process. Those filing must appear for a hearing before a Bankruptcy Court Judge and answer questions. Klein accompanies his clients to the hearing, and in most cases, that is all that is necessary for the judge to

Over the past few years, Klein said that more older people have turned to bankruptcy. “You are seeing more 'baby boomers' filing bankruptcy,” Klein said. “The cost of medicine and food continues to go up and people are using their credit cards to pay their medical bills and for medicine. All it takes is one unexpected large expense and you're stuck.” Another type of client that Klein has seen more of in recent years is people facing the threat of losing their homes to foreclosure. “People were sold more than what they could pay for,” Klein said. “(And) if you miss two mortgage payments you are in serious danger. You are not likely going to be able to pull it out.” Filing bankruptcy can stop the foreclosure process and allow people to remain in their homes. Klein said that on more than one occasion he has had clients come to him that were facing the possibility of losing their home the next day, and he has been able to take action to stop that from happening. “The best and safest way to save a house is to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy,” Klein said. “We can stop it (the foreclosure process) cold.” Klein warns people not to fall for companies that offer foreclosure rescue services. Most of them are scams, Klein said, that take people's money and provide no relief. The same can be said for companies that offer to negotiate credit card debt, he said, noting that most are not West Virginia companies and that the state Attorney General's office has filed suit to stop many of them from operating in

West Virginia. Klein has been practicing bankruptcy and real estate law for the past 30 years and for the past 20 years has kept his primary office in Teays Valley. During that time, his firm has represented more than 3,000 businesses and individuals in bankruptcy cases. When he is not practicing law, Klein can be found teaching history classes at Marshall University's campus in Teays Valley where he is an adjunct professor. Klein received his undergraduate degree in history from Rutgers University and later a master's degree in history from Marshall University. He received his law degree from Ohio University and is licensed to practice in West Virginia and Ohio. In addition to his work as an attorney, Klein served in the United States Marine Corps Reserve from 1975-2000. He retired as a lieutenant colonel. A history buff, Klein's law office in Teays Valley is decorated with items portraying the U.S. Civil War. In addition to history, Klein is an active outdoorsman. As a youth he was an Eagle Scout and later served as a Scoutmaster. Recently, Klein took his love of the outdoors to a new level, setting out to hike the Appalachian Trail that stretches more than 2,000 miles from Georgia to Maine. Rather than tackling the trail all at once and doing a “thru hike” that could take up to six months, Klein is hiking the trail in 100-mile segments as his schedule allows. The Klein Law Firm is located in the Clyffeside Professional Building at 3566 Teays Valley Road in Hurricane. For more information, contact the firm at (304) 562-7111 or visit the firm online at or

Thought for the week: And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy… GENESIS 2:3 (KJV) Every summer a local church assembles together for their one day annual dinner, and it is not held at the church, but at the home of a gracious couple who opens the doors of their home and welcome all who want to attend. God has blessed them with land to provide many activities for young and old to enjoy, including a heated pool, canoes for the river which runs beside the property, hayrides to ride and see a log cabin in the woods, many outdoor games to play, and as always a feast of good food to enjoy for the day. Tables and chairs are set up in the large yard under big old shade trees where birds are chirping, and the church youth gather to sing hymns of song on the white covered porch. The pastor presents his teachings for all to listen to while clouds of cotton roll under the blue skies. You feel welcomed with God’s presence. All of us live in areas with at least ten surrounding churches to attend, and most of them encounter some type of problem. Of course we know the devil has to keep his attendance up also. Yet here is a house sitting on a farm with just as much love inside the door as the greatest chapel in the world. Isn’t this what God intended for us to do? We are to assemble ourselves together in His name and give our thanks and praises and commune with him. In Hebrews 13:15 it says, “By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name.” Our forefathers began this way and the Amish continue this today. We are so blessed to have many fine church buildings around us constructed by our past ancestors to worship in and the freedom to do so. We also have fellowship halls where praises to God can be given in many different ways. We don’t need more church buildings. We just need more people to keep our churches strong so they will forever stand for our future generations to come. If you are not attending a church may I suggest that you try one this coming week. We took sweet counsel together; and walked unto the house of God in company. Psalm 55:14. Prayer: Our heavenly Father, thank you for good people everywhere who are blessed to share their kindness with others. May we not become so thoughtless we forget that You have given us the freedom of worship.We are to be fishermen, leading others to know You. Amen.

The Museum chronicles the Vietnam War era and the unique healing power of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, while the Information Center serves as a venue for people to learn about friends and loved ones lost in the war. At Tuesday evening’s dinner Bob Elswick, owner of Tri-State Trophy in Milton, stated that he had always said if something ever came to Milton in honor of the many veterans … he would make a special trophy… and that’s just what he did. He presented the Pumpkin Festival with a beautiful trophy that will be on display during the Festival. One of the most quiet, special moments of the evening was when the trophy was unveiled. After the unveiling, many people stood and applauded… not only for the trophy itself, but for what it stands for and in honor of the many men and women who have given their lives for our freedom. Although the dinner doesn’t take place through Festival Days, on Tuesday September 18th the more than 150 folks in attendance were more than ready for the Festival to begin. After hearing of the many events planned for the 2012 Festival …and with the weather just a wee bit cooler… Fall seemed to fill the evening air - giving everyone an extra incentive to visit the festival on October 4, 5, 6 or 7th. There was royalty at this year’s dinner, as 2012 West Virginia Pumpkin Festival Teen Queen Madisen Burns extended an invitation for all to come to the festival and enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of Fall 2012. Madisen also participated in the annual pumpkin-pie-eating contest. One of the most popular activities at the dinner - this contest finds city, state and county leaders, along with media personalities and children volunteering (although most of the time, being ‘drafted’) – as they try to be the fastest ‘pumpkin pie eater’ at the dinner. This year’s ‘winner’ was WCHS-TV’s Kenny Bass. Mayor Tom Canterbury, Recorder Mike Adams and mem-

The Thought of Autumn The thought of Autumn brings sad feelings to me. I feel as if something has died and will never come back. I know that Winter is coming and I don’t really like Winter. But the snow is pretty on days we don’t have to go out and drive. The thought of the leaves turning colors and falling has always seemed odd. Why can’t the leaves stay green all the time? I know there is a scientific reason for this, but it still doesn’t make it any easier. I enjoy the different colors and I once read where someone said that Autumn is the bursting Spring just before Winter. I guess we could look at it like that. I love Spring and Summer and I like Fall. But the Winter is hard to bear sometimes. God made all the seasons and He made man to enjoy them all. I know people who come to life in the Fall… They are just so energetic after a hot Summer. They really look forward to the Fall. I just don’t understand. I love West Virginia and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. The mountains are so beautiful… especially in the Fall. I think I have talked myself into enjoying this autumn.

Bob Elswick designed and made this trophy that will be on display during the 2012 West Virginia Pumpkin Festival. bers of City Council – Phyllis Smith, Jimmy Smith, Charlie Conard, Pat Wisman, and Carl Harshbarger, along with their spouses… represented the City of Milton. Delegates Jim Morgan, Carol Miller and Dale Stephens, Cabell County Sheriff Tom McComas, Judge Paul Farrell and Cabell County Commissioners Nancy Cartmill, Bob Bailey and Anne Yon were also among those in attendance. Commissioner Cartmill told the crowd that the County Commission had already mailed Pumpkin Festival president Bill Kelley a check in the amount of $10,000, therefore they would not be ‘presenting a check’ at this year’s dinner. Before leaving, those with the media received ‘media packets’ filled with all sorts of information. From arts and crafts, entertainment and encampments to a scholarship auction, pumpkin carriage photos and black-

ning David Gaydosz to fumble at midfield on the ensuing drive. The recovery set up first blood when Highlander quarterback Mark Shaver scrambled for a 17yard touchdown run the first quarter. With the defenses playing at this level, points would be at a premium this evening and Midland knew what needed done. The offense began to come alive through the air and on the ground. A series of big plays set up a very small one when Midland running back Lowell Farley dove for a 1-yard touchdown run midway through the second. Farley, Cabell Midland's all-time leading rusher, was held relatively in check with 87 yards on 18 carries including the score. Shaver was intercepted by Knights defensive back Stephen Matthews on the final play of the half, and two 7's hung on the scoreboard at the break. The third quarter continued much of the same defensive dominance. The Highlanders forced a fumble from Knights quarterback Coy Petitt and on the

next drive Shaver threw his second interception, this time to Midland linebacker Josh Cox. Midland would finally capitalize again on their defense's fortunes with 22 seconds left in the third quarter when Gaydosz busted loose for a 35-yard touchdown after the Knights recovered another Huntington fumble. Heading into the fourth, it was 14-7 and Shaver had completed more passes to Midland players than his own, going one for nine attempts in the first three quarters. That changed in a hurry in the fourth when he bombed running back Lamar Thompson for a 74yard touchdown completion. But the often most automatic play in football broke down for Huntington. Zach Stephens extra point kick was blocked by Midland linebacker Justin Leggett and the Knight would remain on top by a razor's edge, 14-13. Midland's offense sputtered at the wrong time when the failed a fourth down conversion on their own 38 yard line. Huntington's offense found no more luck and

sent Stephens out again on a 33yard attempt and the potential lead. Again, the Knights defense would have none of that. Defensive end Tyler Hayes blocked the kick for Midland and Issac Gibson recovered. “Coach Salmons has a lot of trust in us,” Hayes said, “He knows what he's doing.” Huntington's offense got one last shot late in the fourth on a promising drive into Midland territory. On fourth and long with 55 seconds left, Hayes came up huge again when he sacked Shaver to seal the game for the Knights. “It's going to stick with me forever,” Hayes said. The Knights raised the traveling Sheild rivalry trophy for another year and remained #1 in West Virginia for another week. “A win's a win and we're happy,” Salmons said, “It's a great feeling.” The Knights (5-0) will return to Ona next week and take on the Woodrow Wilson Flying Eagles of Beckley. Kickoff is at 7:30.

Pumpkins originated in Central America. The name pumpkin originated from "pepon" – the Greek word for "large melon." Eighty percent of the pumpkin supply in the United States is available in October. The largest pumpkin pie ever made was over five feet in diameter and weighed over 350 pounds. It used 80 pounds of cooked pumpkin, 36 pounds of sugar, 12 dozen eggs and took six hours to bake. Colonists sliced off pumpkin tips; removed seeds and

filled the insides with milk, spices and honey. This was baked in hot ashes and is the origin of pumpkin pie. Pumpkins were once rec-

ommended for removing freckles and curing snake bites. Native Americans flattened strips of pumpkins, dried them and made mats. Native Americans called p u m p k i n s "isqoutm, or i s q u o t e r squash." Native Americans used pumpkin seeds for food and medicine.

Largest Pumpkin Weighing Contest The WV Pumpkin Festival offers not only the largest pumpkins - but numerous items - for sale at the annual Scholarship Auction. It is hoped that many will attend the festival and participate in purchasing the largest pumpkin grown in West Virginia or the largest out-of-state pumpkin submitted. Any high school senior planning to attend a college or university in West Virginia is eligible to apply for the $2,000.00 scholarship. The annual auction will be held on Sunday, October 7th, 4:00 PM at the Pumpkin Park, #1 Pumpkin Way.

“Bringing the Wall Home” to communities throughout the country allows the souls enshrined on the Memorial to exist, once more, among family and friends in the peace and comfort of familiar surroundings. The traveling exhibit allows the thousands of veterans who have been unable to cope with the prospect of ‘facing the Wall” to find strength and courage to do so within their own communities, thus allowing the healing

process to continue. The Wall That Heals features a Traveling Museum and Information Center providing an educational component to enrich and complete visitor’s exThe Museum periences. chronicles the Vietnam War era and the unique healing power of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, while the Information Center serves as a venue for people to learn about friends and loved ones lost in the war.

One of our main attractions for the Festival is School Days when thousands of elementary school kids come on Thursday and Friday morning to decorate pumpkins and show them

Did you know that the Irish brought the tradition of pumpkin carving to America? The tradition originally started with the carving of turnips. When the Irish immigrated to the U.S., they found pumpkins so plentiful and pumpkins were much easier to carve for their ancient holiday.

P.E.T.A., the common cure for Outdoors-writer's Block

David Payne Sr.

Column by David Payne Sr.

I've been writing an outdoors column in various papers since I was, I think, 19 years old. That's a lot of columns and the question comes up occasionally, “where do you get the ideas for your columns?” Sometimes, the ideas seem pretty obvious from something I've seen or something that is going on in the world. But sometimes, I'm just plain skunked for an idea and reach for the ace up my sleeve. The surefire cure of writer's block for any

outdoors writer is a quick visit to the People for the Ethical Treatment for Animals' Web site. There, I can see what big-shot actor or musician I can have a grudge against this week or what little kid's fishing birthday-party fishing derby P.E.T.A. is trying to shut down, etc. This week, it's Justin Bieber, Paul McCartney and Laura Bell Bundy. Of course, everybody knows who Paul McCartney is and Justin Bieber is annoying enough that it's hard not to know who he is. I had never heard of Laura Bell Bundy and had to look her up. She sings the kind of pop music they play on today's “country” radio stations. Now the only thing I can find wrong with Laura Bell Bundy's P.E.T.A. ad is, well, she is involved with P.E.T.A. In the ad, she says don't leave dogs in hot cars. OK, I can live with that. There is nothing wrong, I suppose, with telling people not to leave dogs in hot cars. Paul McCartney was the one who got me fired up. He's made a pro-vegetarian, anti-fishing poster for P.E.T.A with this quote from himself “Many years ago, I was fishing and as I was reeling in

the poor fish and I realized 'I was killing him – all for the passing pleasure it brings me.' And something inside me clicked. I realized, as I watched him fight for breath, that his life was as important to him as mine was to me.” You know who has time to think about this stuff? People who don't work for a living, that's who. Paul McCartney is worth nearly a billion dollars. There's nothing wrong with having money, but there is something definitely wrong with some billionaire strolling in like he's so important that I'm going to automatically care about what he has to say about how to spend my free time. He's got enough money to play golf on the moon, for crying out loud. Compared to him, my pastime options are extremely limited and he needs to leave them alone. If Paul McCartney is reading The Putnam Standard and The Cabell Standard – which he, as all people, should – I would like him to know this – when you spew this virulent anti-fishing poppycock, you are standing on our shoulders. We invented, yes, we invented this cause of preserving

and conserving wildlife. We the people who actually commune with nature and fish streams own this cause and are not going to hand it over. While you can trace the practice of modern conservation back to the birth of scientific forestry during the 1700s in Germany (specifically Prussia, there was no country of Germany in those days), that was more timber management than anything else. If you want to find the first people who sought to preserve nature itself, look to fishermen on the streams. I can show you arguments for conserving fish dating back to “Treatise of Fyshing Wyth An Angle” back in the 1400s. That was written by a fisherman, not some billionaire music-industry or Hollywood big shot. We were the ones who since the late 19th Century have converted miles upon miles of stream from barren wastewater to living, vibrant streams. Some, such as Theodore Roosevelt and Herbert Hoover, have had the power to make great strides in this effort, but we outdoors folk have all done our part. I could also say that McCartney

should put his money where his mouth is. We did. McCartney's net worth is $800 million. Since 1939, hunters and anglers have paid $5 billion in excise taxes – that money is used to manage and protect wildlife. In 2009 alone, that tax revenue was $336 billion. That's just the amount paid in taxes from the gear we purchase, not including the money raised by such worthy groups as Trout Unlimited and the National Wild Turkey Federation, both of which spend a great deal of money to protect and preserve wildlife, as opposed to using its money to run ads with out-of-touch movie stars and musicians. P.E.T.A. can keep Justin Bieber, Bundy and Paul McCartney. They can keep blowing money on their ads nobody but the Hollywood elite pays attention to anyway. We'll stick with the legacies of Theodore Roosevelt and Herbert Hoover and get back to our tireless work of doing real things to save and preserve America's streams and forests.

Outdoors Roundup Fairmont State advances to national fishing tournament The Fairmont State University fishing team, which has been a powerhouse in the sport for several years, recently won the FLW College Fishing Northern Conference Championship Sept. 13 - 15 on Philpott Lake in Virginia. Representing the school were Ryan Radcliff of Parkersburg and Wil Dieffenbauch of Hundred. Fairmont won second place last year. Before the tournament, the students predicted that they would need to catch 8 pounds of qualifying fish on each of the three days to win the tournament. They won the tournament, with 24 pounds, 12 ounces of fish. Fairmont State had avenged its second-place showing last year to net the team’s first-ever conference championship victory. “It feels amazing. I don’t even know what to do now,” said Dieffenbauch. “After last year, we wanted to win this title badly. Now I’m getting greedy. I want to win a national championship.”

The tournament awards more than just bragging rights and a berth in the 2013 FLW College Fishing National Championship. The college netted a fully rigged Ranger Z117 for their bass club. “It’s just awesome,” said Radcliff. “I started fishing with Will this year and we really worked well together. He taught me so much and I was able to keep learning like crazy throughout the season. But even a few weeks ago, I honestly would not have dreamed that we’d win this thing.” The duo used drop-shot equipped with a 4-inch Robo worm in a Morning Dawn color to land a good part of their catch. But their largest fish ultimately came on a ½-ounce Swarming Hornet Fish Head Spin with a Yamamoto saltwater swimbait in a blue pearl/silver flake color. Red Spruce trees planted to commemorate 9/11 On Sept. 11, Americorps volunteers dug up more than 1,800 red spruce seedlings from power-line rights-of-way and transplanted

them at Blackwater Falls State Park in Tucker County. The trees, if left where they naturally seeded, would have been cut or sprayed with herbicide during normal maintaining of the rightsof-way. The Patriot Day observance, which included a moment of silence for 9/11 victims, is part of the Central Appalachian Spruce Restoration Initiative, which works to restore red-spruce stands. For more information about the initiative, visit American Chestnut Foundation summit slated The 2012 American Chestnut Summit will be held in Asheville, N.C. Oct. 19 – 21, where the latest scientific advancements and developments in the effort to restore the American chestnut tree to the Eastern U.S. forests. The event is presented by the American Chestnut Foundation and the U.S. Forest Service. The Summit offers seminars, workshops, and field trips to explore all aspects of chestnut restoration. The Ameri-

can chestnut tree, which once dominated American forests, provided food for wildlife and millions of Americans, was wiped out by a disease accidentally imported from China in the early

1900s. The foundation has spent decades working to create an American chestnut tree that is resistant to the disease. For more information, visit

Page 22 –Tuesday,September 25,2012 Club, ran track and was a proud member of Jim Ward's Pony Express basketball team. Pat worked summers and holidays at Huntington Piping as a painter alongside his Dad, at first to earn money to attend Marshall University, and later through the years, even after he was employed as a teacher. He loved working with his father. He attended Marshall University, where he was a member of the Marshall basketball team and was very active in the Campus Crusade and Athletes in Action ministry, graduating in 1978. Pat began his 34-year career with the Cabell County Board of Education at West Junior High School, where he had himself attended. It was there that his love of sports led to his first involvement in the coaching experience and many wonderful years as both an instructor and a coach with his students. Through the years, he was a coach or assistant coach for girls softball, girls track, and girls and boys basketball, at both West and Huntington High School. From 1989 to 2002, he was the head boys basketball coach at Huntington High. Pat always tried to be fair, always gave 100 percent to the teams he coached and always endeavored to do what was best for the team. Pat also created the Herpetology Lab at Huntington High School. Originally housed within an old broom closet in the old Huntington High building on 8th

Street that he cleaned and renovated at nights and on the weekends, it moved with the school to its new location, where it still exists today, much to the delight of Mr. McKee's students. He was also the current Chair of the Science Department at Huntington High and was honored in 2010 with the W.Va. Biology Teacher of the Year award. He conducted many technology, science and photography training sessions for Cabell County faculty and staff, alongside friends Dennis Adkins, Brian Cordle and Steve Beckelheimer. Pat was also an adjunct faculty member of the Marshall University College of Science, a consultant to the June Harless STEM Center and a site coordinator for the Shewey Science Academy in Mingo County. He also made time to share his great love for photography with many in the community through his photography classes. He enjoyed them greatly. They were very popular and well-attended within the TriState area. He also maintained memberships in the Cabell County CEA, WVEA, NEA, ISTE, Ohio Valley Camera Club and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. As this chapter of Pat's life closes, his family has no doubt that Pat is in Heaven, running again, on legs that no longer hurt, perhaps looking for the best angle on a shot of a beautiful heavenly vista to share with us.

Info. on Women’s Health under Health Care Reform Released West Virginians for Affordable Health Care (WVAHC) is releasing a new publication on The Affordable Care Act: What Health Reform Means for Women and Families. The report highlights important new preventive services for women, especially those that support women’s reproductive functions. “The Affordable Care Act takes historic steps to elevate the importance of preventive care and

maternity care,” said Renate Pore, health policy director for WVAHC. “The new law improves coverage of essential services for women, eliminates gender discrimination in the insurance industry and ensures access to affordable health plans regardless of employment.” The law improves access to contraceptive services and maternity coverage for more women. “Access to prenatal care, contraception, support for breast feed-

ing and better access to a range of preventive services will do much to improve the health of mothers and babies in West Virginia,” said Nancy Tolliver, director of the West Virginia Perinatal Partnership. The Perinatal Partnership has worked successfully for years to improve the outcomes for pregnancies in West Virginia. Dan Foster, board president of WVAHC, emphasized the significant changes for women under

the Affordable Care Act (ACA). “These recently implemented provisions of the Affordable Care Act clearly demonstrate that, from now on, simply being a woman can no longer be considered a pre-existing condition by insurance companies,” Foster said. Perry Bryant, executive director of WVAHC and author of the new booklet, explained the information is intended to inform women about the ACA and how it impacts

them and their families. “Reaching out to women and informing them about what is actually in the Affordable Care Act so they and their families can take advantage of the renewed emphasis on prevention and other provisions in the ACA are important. We will be conducting town meeting across the state to inform women about these new opportunities,” Bryant said.

Darrell Fetty to speak at WV Historical Society’s Annual Meeting Darrell Fetty, actor, writer, musician, and one of the producers of the Emmy-nominated miniseries Hatfields & McCoys, will be the featured speaker at the annual meeting of the West Virginia Historical Society at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 30, 2012. The free program, “The Making of Hatfields & McCoys: A West Virginian’s Perspective,” will be held in the West Virginia Archives and History Library in the Culture Center at the Capitol Complex in Charleston and is open to the public. A native West Virginian, Fetty graduated from Milton High School and Marshall University before heading for Hollywood in the 1970s. During his early years

in California, he joined a rock band, composed songs for television and film, and worked as an actor. He made guest appearances in dozens of television series and also appeared in several television movies and miniseries, as well as in feature films such as The Winds and the Lion (1975) and Endangered Species (1982). Fetty later turned to writing and producing; his credits include Silk Stalkings (1994), Viper (1998), and Pensacola: Wings of Gold (19992000). In addition to co-producing the History Channel historical drama miniseries on the Hatfield-McCoy Feud, a ratings winner that garnered sixteen Emmy nominations, Fetty played the role of Doc

Rutherford in the miniseries. He also produced the companion documentary America’s Greatest Feud: Hatfields & McCoys, which was shot in West Virginia and Kentucky. His son Derek worked as a writer and researcher on the documentary, while son Tyler played Bud McCoy in the miniseries. Darrell Fetty originally was drawn to the Hatfield-McCoy story through his first wife, a descendant of both families, but it was only years later that his interest became a Hollywood production. It was the human element that brought the story together, according to Fetty, who says that the miniseries presented the feud story as “an American tragedy.”
