CHALRESTON - Cabell Midland's season opener was no contest. The Knights embarrassed the Riverside Warriors with a staggering 70-point win. From the opening kickoff to the fourth quarter's end, momentum for the boys in red and silver never slowed. They dominated the ballgame. Into halftime, the Knights led by 36. Seconds after returning to the field, Donte Hendricks drove the nail even deeper into Riverside's coffin. He returned the kickoff to rack up a 97-yard touchdown. The scoreboard screamed "game over" with a 43-0 Cabell Midland lead. Kelly Thomas helped pave the

Knight's path to victory with 156 yards on 12 carries. The Knight's defense formed a brick wall the Warriors could not break. Midland stopped Riverside's every attempt at hope. The boys in red and silver allowed only 42 total yards and one completion from Riverside. The offense recorded a mindblowing 605 rushing yards. The uncontested victory proved Cabell Midland is not here to play this season: they're here to annihilate any team that SEE MIDLAND ON PAGE 5 Running past the competition - Jr. Running back Donte Hendricks racks up some yardage for Cabell Midland.

Marshall Unveils New Soccer Complex By: Christian Deiss

HUNTINGTON, WV – The opening of The Veterans Memorial Soccer Complex by Marshall University on August 23 will always provide good memories for Erin Simmons of Marshall’s Women’s Soccer team. The sophomore forward from Gahanna, Ohio scored the first official goal at the new complex as the Lady Thundering Herd defeated the Campbell Fighting Camels 3 – 0 in front of 1433 soccer fans. Before the women’s match at the $8 million dollar facility that took two years to build, was a friendly game between the Marshall Soccer Alumni and the 2013 Marshall men’s squad, won by this year’s team 2 – 0. “I am beyond

Coach Dave Papalia played for the alumni team, “This place is tremendous, we use to play on really old astro turf on a field that wasn’t very nice. This is just an incredible thing to see, somebody’s vision come true. I wish I had a chance to play on something like this.” Papalia played for Marshall 1982 and 83

“FEELINGS OF FALL” Thought for the week: And he changeth the times and the seasons; he removeth kings; and setteth up kings, he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding. Daniel 2:21. (KJV) Fall is in the air when the blackbirds huddle together; deciding which route to take then suddenly everybody is on board, flying together high over the corn fields. Fall is in the air when the wild turkeys have a board meeting in the middle of the hayfield, talking their own language, bobbing their heads in agreement, and scuffing at the ground... not needing any turkey calls from the” Duck Dynasty’’ inventors. Fall is in the air when the zz bugs bellow out their sounds that cooler temperatures are on the way; while the butterflies kiss the

big yellow sunflowers goodbye, and Fall is in the air when you see, high on the hills from a distance, the trees turning the color of maize, like sweet yellow cornbread. School has started - the yellow buses are running again, the children all walking, each bent forward, with loaded backpacks. The gardens are harvested with mostly tomatoes and squash leftovers, while pumpkins are fast growing, trying to be bigger than its neighbor... And soon we will feel a nip in the air, the seasons change quickly once God decides. Ecclesiastes 3:1 - To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven; What would it be like to not live in the change of seasons; I look forward to Fall, and visiting the Amish country every year. It’s

The Cabell Standard like a wrap-up of spring and summer. The Amish have fresh spices and show off their harvest; the ladies prepare their quilting talents. Their simple way of life is interesting and relaxing to be around for a day. Sure, some like to head south for the winter months, avoiding the chill of winter with its snow covered roads, and higher heating bills, but I prefer to take it on, each winter is always different, and a hot cup of soup will always soothe the soul again. Genesis 8:22 - While the earth remaineth seedtime and harvest; and cold and heat; and summer and winter; and day and night shall not cease. “Autumn…The year’s last loveliest smile - William Cullen Bryant. “Autumn …Is a second spring, when every leaf is a flower - Albert Camus “Autumn… Is the hardest season, the leaves are all falling and they’re falling like they’re falling in love with the ground - Andrea Gibson. Prayer: Thank you our Father in Heaven, for your change of seasons, each has a different way for us to enjoy. Amen.

Christian's Sports Beat: Marshall’s Soccer Team Get New Digs

By: Christian Deiss

HUNTINGTON, WV – Recently Marshall University opened the Veterans Memorial Soccer complex. The soccer-only stadium was opened to the public on Friday, August 23 in front of 1433 fans and I was one of those in attendance. There were two matches on opening day; the first game was a friendly match between Marshall Soccer Alumni 1982 – 2011 and the 2013 Marshall Men’s soccer squad. The second game was the first official regular season game at “The Vet” between the visiting Campbell Fighting Camels and the Marshall Thundering Herd Women’s team. I think the first class facility is amazing and Marshall Assistant Men’s Soccer Coach Thomas Olivier agreed with me, “It’s beyond exciting; it’s fabulous for our players. It’s been a huge

process but extremely worth it. We are thrilled.” It took two years to build The Vet and it cost $8 million. I talked to Freshman Forward Tommy Turpo about how exciting it was for him to be playing in a new complex “It’s very humbling because a lot of players before us went through a lot of hard times just having a place to practice and I feel very grateful for all of the people who made it happen.” Turpo is from Scott Depot and played high school soccer at Charleston Catholic, winning state player of the year twice. The new facility will help the team with recruiting new players, “This complex is an unbelievable recruiting tool,” Marshall Head Soccer Coach Bob Gray told me after the friendly game. “This changes the whole game plan for us. Now we have a first class facility and it goes along with the other improvement on the campus. The sky is the limit now.” In the friendly game, former Hurricane High School player and member of last year’s AAA State Championship team Freshman Felipe Thompson scored the game’s second goal on a header off a cross from Turpo. Thompson, a native of Chile, told me what was going through his mind when he scored the goal, “It was a difficult ball, I just went for it and you never can give up and got my head on it.”

Members of the West Virginia Soccer Club Rowdies youth teams, I play for the U10 squad, went to the doubleheader. I asked one of my teammates, Cameron Nitrady of Hurricane what he thought of the new facility, “It is neat, the big M for Marshall really stands out. I can’t wait to see more games at the field.” Marshall plays in Conference USA (C-USA) and I asked Coach Olivier what is it going to take to have a good season, “We are real young, we only have three seniors, so for us to have a good season our young players are going to have to play like they are not young, play like seasoned veterans. We need to grow up and learn real quick.” Turpo agrees with his coach, “It’s going to take a lot of hard work and dedication. We are a young team, 12 freshmen with eight sophomores, it’s going to take heart from the entire team and it’s going to take a lot of leadership from our seniors. In 2012, Marshall started off strong with a 10-1-1 record, but the Herd had a hard time finishing the season losing four of its last five games and missed the CUSA playoffs. Hopefully better things will be coming the squad’s way this season. To follow the Herd’s soccer teams this season, go to I hope to see you at a Marshall game soon, GO HERD!

Beard Mortuary encourages Families to Have The Talk Of A Lifetime HUNTINGTON, WV – People talk about many things with their loved ones: from day-to-day details to big events. Sharing stories with those who matter most isn’t just important today; it will be especially significant when it’s time to commemorate a life. Beard Mortuary is proud to announce its participation in Have the Talk of a LifetimeSM, a national effort to encourage families to have conversations about life and what matters most. These discussions can help families make important decisions about how they wish to remember and honor the lives of their loved ones. Through meaningful memorialization – that is, taking time to reflect on the unique life of a loved one and remember the difference they made – families and friends take an important step in the journey toward healing after death. Individuals and their families have

more options than even before for memorializing their loved one at the end of life. From simple to very elaborate, there are a variety of ways a family can honor their loved one in a personal and meaningful way. “Memorialization is so much more than it used to be,” said Shane A.S. Ritchie. “It can reflect a person’s life story – their values, interests and experiences – and be transformative, healing and comforting. Meaningful memorialization starts when loved ones talk about what matters most: memories made, lessons learned and how they hope to be remembered.” Beard Mortuary is pleased to offer individuals and families in the TriState a free brochure, Have the Talk of a Lifetime, to help them begin a conversation about life. “It’s not easy to talk about death,” said Ritchie. “I think this brochure will be particularly

helpful because it focuses on life, rather than the details of a service. It’s life stories – family vacations, pieces of advice, favorite pastimes – that will help you remember those who matter most and begin to heal after they die.” Visit the Beard Mortuary Facebook site,

HMA to welcome Artist Lisa Orr in September The Huntington Museum of Art will welcome Lisa Orr as a Walter Gropius Master Artist in September. Orr will speak about her work in ceramics at 7 p.m. Sept. 12, 2013. A reception follows. Admission is free. An exhibition of work by Orr will be on view at HMA from Sept. 7 through Nov. 3, 2013. Orr will present a three-day workshop titled "Free Form Earthenware with Vivid Decoration" from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 13-15, 2013. Call (304) 529-2701 for workshop fee information or to register. Orr’s artworks for the dinner table often refer to traditional porcelain whitewares, but with softer, highly decorated forms that echo the playful qualities of Mexican earthenware. Solid and strong yet fluid and detailed, Orr’s work plays both ends of the spectrum. After studying clay

mold fragments in museums and antiquated factories, Orr invented her own eclectic production process that combines molding, wheel throwing and surface decoration. Inspired by the abundance of nature, she imaginatively textures her work with stamps, slips and sprigs. A multihued palette of glazes uniquely enlivens each piece. Orr received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1983. Following several years of apprenticeships, workshops and post-baccalaureate study, she earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in 1992 from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Orr has received numerous grants, fellowships and awards, including a Fulbright Fellowship to study Bulgarian and Macedonian village ceramics (1992-94). Her work is

represented by several prominent ceramics galleries across the country, and in numerous private and public collections such as the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, the American Museum of Ceramic Art, and the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. Orr co-founded the Austin-based Art of the Pot studio tour, now in its tenth year, and is a steadfast advocate for the art of studio pottery. She also researched and produced three documentary DVDs about Mexican Folk pottery. Orr currently operates a studio in Austin, Texas, and divides her time between studio practice, teaching ceramics lessons, workshop travel, family and maintaining her organic garden. The Walter Gropius Master Artist Series is funded through the generosity of the Estate of Roxanna Y. Booth, who wished to assist in the development of an art education program in accordance with the proposals of Walter Gropius, who designed the Museum’s Gropius Addition as well as the Gropius Studios. The Museum is indebted to Roxanna Y. Booth’s son, Alex Booth, for his participation in the concept development of the Gropius Master Artists Workshops. HMA is fully accessible. For more information about events at HMA, visit or call (304) 529-2701., to watch a video and download your free Have the Talk of a Lifetime brochure, call Beard Mortuary at (304) 522-8253, or stop by the office located at 3001 3rd Avenue, Huntington, to request a free copy of the brochure. “We are here to support and en-

courage people as they ‘have the talk” with their loved ones,” said Ritchie. “Please call us if we can help you or if we can provide additional information about your memorialization options.” The Have the Talk of a Lifetime campaign is sponsored by the Funeral and Memorial Information Council. About Us: Since 1946 the staff of Beard Mortuary has been caring for Tri-State families from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity. We invite you to discover what has made Beard Mortuary the ultimate provider of creating healing experiences in the community and to see for yourself how we're revolutionizing the way people think about funeral service.

The Bat - If my Mom reads this story I am in trouble but I guess she can't spank me, well maybe not. Just kidding. We lived in Maryland when I was six years old and I have written stories about that before. We lived in an apartment building on the third floor and the building only had three floors. We loved hanging our heads out the window and looking down at the traffic as it moved along on the street below. Isn't it funny how we never fell out the window? Well, anyway my Mom has always taken care and time with her hair and she has many hair products and she always has. I call her hair poofed, but it really is called volume - but then again I call it “high hair”. We had an adventure one night in that third floor apartment building I will never forget. All my life I had been told that a bat will get into your hair and aim right for your head. Realize I was only six at the time and six-year-olds can't think like adults. I could never understand why or how a bat would get into a person’s hair and live there forever. I really didn't understand how a bat could live with someone slapping it nearly to death in their hair. If a bat got into my hair it would slide right down to the end like a slicky slide as I have straight hair so I never did worry about that. Well, we had a bat come into our apartment one night (as all bats come out at night) and Mom was the first one to spot the bat. She yelled for my Dad - as he, as well as us children - were sound asleep. He woke up and asked her what was wrong and she said as she was under the sheet, that a bat was in the apartment and was trying to get into her hair. It was night and I doubt the bat could not sense there was no “high hair” at night and all the volume was gone as well as the poof. My Dad said she was crazy and to go back to sleep. Well that was not happening. No sooner had he got the words out, the bat came diving at his head and now he was under the sheet with Mom. I thought it was funny as my head was tightly wound with the covers, no matter about the rest of my body, but boy was my hair covered. My sisters also had their head covered as we remembered what Mom had always told us about bats. As I recall the bat was taken care of and we were all at rest and peace once again. I never did hear about rabies until I was older, but did I ever hear that bats get into your hair.

We want to hear from you!

Seasons Set for Dove, Rail, Snipe and Woodcock in West Virginia SOUTH CHARLESTON, WV West Virginia’s 2013-2014 hunting season dates and bag limits for mourning dove, woodcock, common snipe and Sora and Virginia rails have been set, according to the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources Wildlife Resources Section. These seasons are set within guidelines established annually by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Species Dates Daily Limit Possession Limit Mourning Dove (3-way split):

Sept. 2 – Oct. 5, Oct. 21 – Nov. 9, Dec. 23 – Jan. 4 15 45 Woodcock: Oct. 12 – Nov. 25 3 9 Common Snipe: Sept. 2 – Dec. 7 8 16 Sora & Virginia Rails: Sept. 2 – Nov. 2 25 25 Shooting hours for dove are from noon to sunset on September 2, 2013, (opening day of the first segment) and from one-half hour before sunrise until sunset for the remainder of the season. Shooting hours for rails, woodcock and snipe are from one-

half hour before sunrise until sunset. The possession limits for dove and woodcock have been increased to three times the daily bag limit. Dove hunting is available throughout West Virginia, but dove numbers are typically higher near agricultural areas. A recently harvested grain field with water nearby is always a good bet for dove hunting, but nontraditional sites such as reclaimed mine sites or even clearcuts should not be overlooked. Hunters should be con-

tacting landowners now for permission to hunt on private land. Scouting areas immediately prior to when you plan to hunt is very important. All licensed migratory bird hunters, including lifetime license holders and senior citizens, must also have a valid Migratory Bird Harvest Information Program (HIP) registration card. The HIP card is available free at DNR offices and all license agents. Hunters may not hunt migratory birds with a shotgun capable of holding

more than three shells unless the shotgun is “plugged” with a one-piece filler that can’t be removed without disassembling the gun. Banded birds should be reported by calling 1-800-3272263 or online at West Virginia’s 2013-2014 Migratory Bird Hunting Regulations brochure will be available at license agents, game check stations and DNR offices in late August, and are available online now at

WANTED: West Virginia Trophy Fish and Big Bucks for Display at Celebration of National Hunting and Fishing Day Stonewall Resort State Park, Sept. 28 and 29 ROANOKE, WV - If you have a legally harvested and mounted West Virginia big buck trophy, or if you have a trophy fish caught from West Virginia waters, it’s wanted for the Big Buck/Trophy Fish Display at West Virginia’s Celebration of National Hunting and Fishing Day, September 2829, 2013, at Stonewall Resort State Park near Weston in Lewis County. The West Virginia Wildlife Federation, the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources and

Toyota are seeking hunters who own trophy white-tailed bucks that were legally taken in West Virginia with either bow or gun and have a Pope & Young or Boone and Crockett score of 150 or greater. They are also seeking fish that qualified for a trophy fish citation under the WVDNR guidelines. “Each year the West Virginia Wildlife Federation and the DNR showcase these animals that are legally caught and legally harvested at the National Hunting

and Fishing Day event,” said display organizers James Walker and Gene Thorn, DNR wildlife biologists. “The display is a tremendous draw to West Virginia’s Celebration of National Hunting and Fishing Day attracting thousands of visitors annually.” Participation for trophy bucks will be limited to the first 30 qualifying trophy entries received. As an incentive for participation, hunters who display their trophy deer at the two-day

event will be entered into an exclusive drawing for several valuable prizes. Participation for trophy fish will be limited to 25 qualifying trophy entries to be determined by the selection committee. No more than five individuals of any species will be accepted. As an incentive for participation, each angler who displays his or her trophy fish mount at the two-day event will be eligible to win one of five $100 gift certificates. Prizes will be picked randomly.

Interested hunters and anglers who have qualifying head, antler mounts and qualifying fish mounts should contact James Walker for fish or Gene Thorn for bucks at 304-924-6211 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. or email or for additional information. Registration forms also can be found on the DNR website at . Look under “Special Opportunities, National Hunting & Fishing Days”.

West Virginia Big Buck Contest Begins with Bow Season SOUTH CHARLESTON, WV The September 28 opening of the bow hunting season for deer marks the beginning of the annual West Virginia Big Buck Contest. Antlered deer, taken between September 28 and December 31, 2013, are eligible to be scored and entered. “Any hunter who bags a deer in West Virginia with antlers having eight or more points, a 26inch beam length and points that are more than eight inches

long may have a winning buck,” according to Division of Natural Resources Wildlife Biologist Gene Thorn. “Antlers will be measured according to the official scoring system for North American big game animals established by the Boone and Crockett Club.” Plaques will be awarded to eight first-place winners for typical and non-typical bucks in gun, bow, muzzleloader and crossbow (physically chal-

lenged) categories at next year’s National Hunting and Fishing Day Celebration, which will be held at Stonewall Resort State Park on the fourth weekend in September. Gun and muzzleloader hunters whose bucks score more than 140 points typical or 165 non-typical will receive certificates commemorating the entry of their bucks into the West Virginia Big Buck Contest and Records Keeping Program.

Bowhunters or physically challenged crossbow hunters whose bucks score more than 125 points typical or 155 non-typical will also receive certificates. There were 189 new entries into the West Virginia Big Buck Records last year that were taken during the 2012 season. The season total showed 22 bucks taken by gun, one by muzzleloader, 65 by bow and none by crossbows (physically challenged) that qualified for the West Virginia Big

Buck Contest. Bucks taken in previous years may still be scored for a certificate and entry into the records if they meet the minimum score. The DNR, Izaak Walton League of West Virginia, West Virginia Bowhunters Association, West Virginia Muzzle Loaders Association, West Virginia Physically Challenged Advisory Board and Toyota are again sponsoring the contest. Many hunters have their deer scored by a team of official measurers during the West Virginia Hunting and Fishing Show, which is held in late January at the Charleston Civic CenOutdoor session, including unlimited outfit changes and props ter. : One to 20 people in portraits A list of Official Measurers is 50 to 75 images on a cd with copyright release maintained on the DNR’s website: All shots edited inAdobe Photoshop touch-ups BuckContest.shtm, or successful Color, B&W and other enhancements hunters can contact any DNR disAbove package $120 trict office for additional informaPortraits edited and returned to you in three to five days tion.

Cross Country

The Cabell Standard

Cabell Midland Knights: Success in Numbers By Justin Waybright

ONA - For years, spectators have tried to uncover the secret behind Cabell Midland Cross Country team's success. The boys and girls consistently place in the top five year after year. The school births star runners constantly. A number of components make the Knights unstoppable. For one, this year's team has 78 boys and girls: the biggest Cross Country Coach Chris Parsons has ever seen. Parsons hopes to use the large number of runners to fuel a successful season. The veteran coach knows the ins and outs of the sport. He will employ skills proven for victory this season. "Right now, it's all about the pack attack - that's what we’re doing today," Parsons said. Fewer than 20 seconds separate the top 7 boys and girls during tempo runs and speed workouts. Because of this, runners often switch positions in races. "With the boys, we're 8-strong

78-strong - Cabell Midland Cross Country team is the largest it has ever been. The Knights are ready for another victorious season. Photo by Justin Waybright with a lot of movement between no. 1 and no. 8," the coach said. "The goal is when one breaks away, the pack will move up with them." The girls take advantage of similar strategies. "There's a lot of talent on this team, and they will keep getting

better and better as the season goes on," Parsons said. "There's a dozen or more that could be in that top seven," he said. The veteran coach looks for sophomore Andrew Short and senior Eric Wooten to lead the boys and sophomore Zoey Chapman and senior Shelby

Nelson to lead the girls. But, because of the tightness among the runners, positions are unpredictable. "I strive to stay with our pack," said Nelson. "I work off them and they work off me." The runner continued, "I have faith in our team."

Senior Eric Wooten has been running since he was in the 6th grade. He is also a baseball player. The young man plans to use the agility and speed gained on the baseball diamond toward the cross country trails. "It'll help me with quickness and to maneuver around people," Wooten said. "I've got a quick burst of speed for my kick at the end of the race." He has high hopes for the boy’s team this season. "We've been working hard for a long time in the offseason and we're pushing each other forward," Wooten said. "Everybody is like family, and I believe we'll really connect to be great overall." The Knights will compete at the Chick-Fil-A meet Sept. 7, the Hare and Hounds XC Invitational in Charlotte, NC Sept. 21, the Greater Louisville Classic in Louisville, KY on Oct. 5, the MSAC Championship in Ripley Oct. 16, the Region IV Championship at CMHS Nov. 24 and the State Championship Nov. 2 at CMHS.
