Workshop to Discuss Options to Extend Produce Growing Season WVU Horticulture Specialist, Dr. Lewis Jett, will discuss methods to extend the growing season for WV vegetable and fruit growers. The meeting will be hosted jointly by Putnam Farmers Market and by the Wild Ramp, and will take place at the Putnam County Courthouse (3389 Winfield Road, Winfield) on Tuesday, December 4th from 7 PM to 9 PM. Producers, who are considering growing produce for early market entry or installing high tunnels or low row covers on their property, should attend this meeting. Season extension infrastructure can typically allow producers to plant and harvest four to five weeks earlier or later for the average WV growing season. This workshop is designed to be especially beneficial to farmers market vendors who want to get a jump-start on the growing season. Farmers who wish to sell produce to school cafeterias (Farm to School) may also benefit from this presentation. Dr. Jett will discuss tunnel management considerations for: 1) selecting pest-resistant plants and plant varieties that will grow profitably ($), 2) determining high/low tunnel planting and harvesting dates, and 3) examining storage and handling considerations for produce. This workshop is sponsored in part by a grant procured by the WV Farmer’s Market Association and by the WVU Extension Service. Please RSVP for space considerations by calling the WVU Extension Office: Chuck Talbott at (304) 586-0217 or Rich Sherman at (304)-743-7151. Programs and activities offered by the West Virginia University Extension Service are available to all persons without regard to race, color, sex, disability, religion, age, veteran status, political beliefs, sexual orientation, national origin, and marital or family status.

Coach Leon McCoy speaks at County Thanksgiving Dinner By Justin Waybright

WINFIELD—Legendary Coach Leon McCoy showed humble gratitude when he spoke during the 18th Annual Putnam County Thanksgiving Dinner, Tuesday afternoon (November 13th) at First State Bank. The former All-American approached an audience of more than 70 people. He shared with them stories from his past, and revealed some events in his life that have helped him become what he is today. “I come today representing my Lord, and I’m proud to be a Christian,” the retired Winfield High School Coach said. “I’m not ashamed of it, because Christ has blessed my life through the years.” With the holidays coming up, the spirit of thanks is in the air. This same spirit fills McCoy every day, because he gives thanks every morning he wakes. He remains thankful for the little and big things in his life. “When you count your blessings, it helps keep you humble,” he said. This attitude and daily way of

Putnam Board of Education Member Sam Sentelle was honored to praise McCoy for his hard work in the county school system. “It would be good to have a Leon McCoy in every school; he leads from the front and sets the pace,” Sentelle said. “One of the most important things we need

to be teaching in schools is civic responsibility. It is how we live and work together in the community.” Sentelle continued, “I hate to see him retire.” Others in attendance shared the same sentiment. Putnam Rotary Member and Master of Ceremonies Bill Ellis was happy with the success of this year’s event. “This is a highlight for me, and

FOR THE TOPPING: • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon sugar • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder • 1/2 cup milk • 1 large egg, lightly beaten • 1 tablespoon oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions 1. Heat the oven to 400º. Place the potato, carrots, peas, broccoli, corn, and squash in a medium-size pot and fill it with enough water to cover the vegetables plus one inch. Lightly salt the water, bring it to a boil, then allow the vegetables to continue boiling for 4 minutes. Drain and rinse the vegetables with cold water and set them aside. 2. Melt the butter over medium heat in a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven. Add the onion and mushrooms and sauté them, stirring often, until they're soft, about 4 minutes. Stir in the flour and cook the mixture, stirring nonstop, another 30 seconds. Add the vegetable broth, milk, salt, pepper, thyme, and celery seed and continue to stir until the sauce thickens, about 4 minutes. 3. Add the vegetables to the sauce and stir well. Add more salt and pepper, if desired, then stir in the Parmesan and bring the filling to a simmer. Thin it with water if its consistency is thicker than potato soup. Transfer the filling to a casserole dish. 4. Make the corn bread topping. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the milk, egg, and oil and stir until evenly blended. Spread the batter over the filling. Bake the cobbler until the top is golden brown and the sides are bubbly, about 25 minutes. Allow it to cool slightly before serving. Serves 8.

This is the last column I will be presenting on Figurative Language. The topic today is Irony, there are several types of irony. There is (1) dramatic irony and verbal irony where the poet has a character/person in his poetry that says one thing while in reality the poet meant just the opposite. (2) Irony of situation which is a twist of events causing an unexpected result. (3) Lastly you have Satire and Sarcasm, usually these are used in statement poetry, and here the writer addresses public figures or current events. We are coming into the holiday season. It would be wonderful to be able to include one holiday poem in each column from now until the end of the year. If you would like to see your poetry in print you can send it to the above address or email it to: and until next time keep reading and writing. ***** The Angler Standing before tranquil blush tones of an evening sky I the angler find solace with nature A sense of anticipation

Mountain View wins National Award A Putnam County elementary school received a national recognition for healthy school improvement. Mountain View Elementary won the Bronze Award from the Alliance for a Healthier Generation for school improvement fo-

cusing specifically on healthy living and fighting childhood obesity. The Alliance recently honored the more than 250 recipients in Little Rock, Arkansas. The National Recognition Award is given to schools that

improved conditions and met or exceeded the standards set by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s Healthy Schools Program. All schools honored have been successful in creating a healthier atmosphere for students. According to Principal Sonya Shue, physical education teacher Jeff Shultz spearheaded a collaborative effort that involved the staff, the school’s cooks, and the Putnam County Schools Office of Child Nutrition. Mountain View made choosing healthy foods easier for students by having aides near the salad bar, and setting and meeting fitness goals using a pedometer walking program and involving the staff with Zumba classes and health and wellness screenings. Mountain View was one of four West Virginia schools to be awarded this year.

W Club pledges $200,000 to support new athletic complex at WVSU INSTITUTE – A group that works to support athletic programs at West Virginia State University has pledged to raise $200,000 for a new athletic complex to be built on the school’s Institute campus. The W Club has pledged to raise the $200,000 over the next three years in support of the new $2.1 million WVSU athletic complex that was announced in October. W Club President William “Billy” Lipscomb said that he is asking individual club members to give $1,000 in order to meet the pledge obligation. He said that donations can be spread out over the duration of the drive, meaning for example, a donor could give $333 a year over the three-year period. “But we will take any amount,” Lipscomb said. “I know people want to give in order to see this new athletic complex become a reality.” Those who give at the $1,000 level will have their name placed on a Wall of Distinction inside the lobby of the new athletic complex. Donating at the $1,000 level also

grants the person a lifetime membership in the W Club, Lipscomb said. Apart from the Wall of Distinction, other naming opportunities are also available within the new athletic complex for donors who wish to give more, Lipscomb said. “The W Club has a long history of leadership giving to West Virginia State,” said university President Brian O. Hemphill. “This generous pledge is another example of the dedication of W Club members to the success of student athletes at State.” Formally established in 1976, the W Club works to support the athletic programs of WVSU. The W Club also honors those who have been a part of the WVSU athletic program’s history through its annual Hall of Fame inductions. The new athletic complex will support training and conditioning programs for all 204 WVSU student athletes and will also serve as the home of the Yellow Jacket football team on game days. The complex will feature state-of-the-art weight training facilities, two locker rooms, a team meeting

room, conference room and coach’s offices. For more information about the W Club call (304) 766-5724, (304) 610-2546, or e-mail To learn more about contributing to the WVSU Athletic Complex, contact Patricia J.

Velma’s View By Velma Kitchens Thanksgiving I have been thinking about Thanksgiving and how we all should enjoy the season and be thankful for all that God has given to us. Some people have their family traditions of turkey, stuffing, mashed and sweet potatoes, corn, green beans, rolls, and pumpkin pie. When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of home. I like the smell of the turkey in the oven. The sound of the parade on TV. These are the things that are the same every year, but I enjoy them. I used to cook more than I do now, but I have learned to downsize. We don’t need to be eating turkey for three days after Thanksgiving. I think of the pilgrims who came to our country and how they had to gather their food, especially the turkey. The men had to go out and kill it for the women to cook. A lot of us would be turkey-less if it depended on the men to go out in the frozen tundra and kill the turkey and then bring it home for us to fix up. Reminds me of my Grandmother who had chickens and how she killed the chickens and then she had to pluck the feathers off after dipping in boiling water. You had to then singe the hair off the chicken, then you had to gut the chicken and cut it up, and then you fried your chicken. Lots of work, but good chicken. Thanksgiving should also be a day we set aside time for the Lord and His Word and give thanks to Him for all His benefits. If you don’t have a family tradition, you can easily start one. Having a thankful heart is pleasing to God. He gives us so much and we give Him so little. Now is the time to start being thankful. Psalms 100.

Grave Creek Mound to Celebrate Native American Heritage Month with Nov. 29 Talk “Native Wisdom: Lessons from the Elders and the Land” MOUNDSVILLE, WV - Robert Pirner, lecturer in Native American Studies at West Virginia University (WVU), will present the interactive discussion “Native Wisdom: Lessons from the Elders and the Land” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 29, at the Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex in Moundsville. The program, timed to coincide with Native American Heritage Month, is free and open to the public. Pirner’s program will present the “Lakota Way of Life,” which he learned from the people of the Spring Creek Community on the Rosebud Lakota Reservation in South Dakota. His talk will touch upon the art, politics, history, religion, social problems and cul-

ture of the Lakota people. A self-described family man, small-town guy, nonprofit executive and mentor, Pirner grew up and lived for more than 30 years in the Spring Creek Community, one of the last traditional Lakota communities. He is one of approximately 6,000 speakers of the Lakota language. Members of his community, including medicine men Leonard Crow Dog, Joe Eagle Elk and Chief Eagle Feather, have been the subjects of several books. Pirner has developed and taught numerous courses for the Native American Studies program at WVU such as “Lakota Studies,” “Lakota Wisdom— Lessons from the Elders and the Land” and “Native American

Filmmakers.” The 2012 lecture and film series continues Thursday, Dec. 27, 2012, with the showing of a documentary film, Poverty Point Earthworks: Evolutionary Milestones of the Americas. One of the few archaeological and historic sites in North American that is both a state historic site and national monument, the Poverty Point site in northeast Louisiana was home to one of the most important prehistoric cultures on the continent.

Christin’s Corner By Christin Daugherty Dear Christin, I recently went through a really bad breakup with my boyfriend of two years. I have never been so depressed in my life! My friends all say that I should just move on and find someone else, but…I don’t want anyone else. I can’t imagine anyone else making me feel the way that he did. What do you think I should do? Sincerely, Heartbroken Dear Heartbroken, Is it really better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all? Sure doesn’t feel like it right now, does it? However, I think I know just the thing to make you feel better. This is gonna be really tricky, so I want you to listen closely. Take… care… of… yourself. Doesn’t sound that tough, now does it? Don’t worry about the ex. Don’t worry about what your friends say. I want you to worry about nothing but YOU! That’s it. After every one of my 5,000 breakups (that’s an exaggeration, by the way), my friends would always tell me the same thing. “You need to find someone else to help you get over so-and-so.” Of course, I tried it a couple of times, but I found that it only made me feel even more unfulfilled and confused. Have you ever heard the expression, “You can never truly love someone else until you learn to love yourself?” Well, I am here to testify that truer words have never been spoken! My latest run-in with love was the most remarkable to-date. There I was, with my head in the clouds and my heart on my sleeve, when suddenly…BAM! I’ll spare you the details, but I often compare it to having your heart

ripped out of your chest, then watching it get repeatedly ran over by a semi-truck. So, what did I do? Well, for awhile I felt just like you…lost. I didn’t think anyone could replace that person that I thought I would spend forever with. But you can only lick your wounds for so long before you have to just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep moving forward. And you need to know that this journey is not a simple one. It would be much easier to forget about the past by getting lost in a potential future with someone else. But nothing that is worthwhile in this life is meant to be easy. Remember that. Some women, perhaps even your friends, think that they have to be with a man in order to feel “complete”. On the contrary, the most complete I have ever felt was the moment that I realized: If I have to be single for the rest of my life, I will be ok. Once you get to that place, then having a significant other is just an added bonus, not a necessity. Give yourself a little time out of a relationship so that you may find out what it is that you want in one. You might just surprise yourself with how strong and independent you can be! “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” Buddha Got a problem?

Thought for the week: And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. EXODUS 25: 8 (KJV) Since this is the month for giving thanks across our nation, which we should do every day every month, and in return receive blessings, this is a blessing I feel from the church I attend that is over two hundred years old. The original structure outside and the inside columns are the same as when first erected, most all windows, doors, carpet etc. have been remodeled. As I sit and look upon those columns with their wounds of time clearly etched on them, I seem to feel a closeness and blessing from God. This building was used as a hospital during the civil war of 1861. I can vision many stories, if those walls within could talk, would they tell us the numerous scenes played out during the civil war? Maybe a wounded soldier breathing his last breath of life, telling someone a message to send to his mother, or wife. Perhaps a young soldier who was selected to be a leader asking God for guidance for his troops, while guarding a nearby bridge; or a victory cry saying thank you Father in heaven that this war has finally ended after much unnecessary bloodshed by man during this war time . Those old, tall white columns have initials carved on them, they have gunshot holes and many scrapes and nicks. Nails and screws have been in and out the various layers of paint - still they stand sturdy and tall, and strong, as if reaching toward heaven, holding up a building that our ancestors in previous years provided as a house of worship to our heavenly father... This church has good singing, teachers, and leaders and you may meet your neighbor there, blessings can come in different forms, and this is one for me. To sit and look upon these same grand old columns, thinking, how many eyes with various feelings in their hearts - in times of trouble, sickness and joy - the many funerals, the many baby dedications, the many weddings, the many salvations of souls to GOD. They have endured. These tall strong, sturdy, structures, could teach us a lesson in life. Are you setting an example of strong faith to others in this life? Prayer: Our Father in heaven, thank you, for all buildings intended for the study and worship of your word. May we be pleasing you by attending and learning. Amen.

Shop til You Drop! By Justin Waybright

BARBOURSVILLE - It’s that time of year when full-bellied, sleepy-eyed shoppers pile into stores across the nation in hopes of finding that big bargain. In Cabell County, the Huntington Mall is gearing up for the annual all-night “shopping superbowl,” known as Black Friday. Earlier in the week, retail workers unloaded cardboard boxes full of sale items, hung holiday décor in their department stores and geared up for one of the busiest days of the year. Elder-Beerman Store Manager Jane Davis is ready. Davis and her workers are excited about the specials their store is offering shoppers on Friday. “We’re going to have 500 different door-busters,” she said. The friendly service, atmosphere and prices this store offers, consistently draws large crowds during the Holiday Season. Last year, a line of people stood at the front door, anticipating great deals on sale items. “The coupons and doorbusters will give shoppers some great buys,” Davis said. “Our prices are absolutely fabulous.”

Thousands of shoppers from across the Tri-state will pass by this sign as they pull onto the busy parking lot of the Huntington mall, early Friday morning. For thousands of dedicated shoppers, the sun will not be out while they are hunting for deals inside the mall’s 150 stores. Photo by Justin Waybright. Huntington Mall Marketing Director Margi MacDuff has worked through 10 Black Fridays. MacDuff has watched the famous shopping day evolve into a major attraction in Barboursville. “Every year, it gets bigger and bigger, and earlier and earlier,” she said. “Once you hit Black Friday, it’s a whole other scenario.” A decade ago, mall doors opened at 6:00 a.m., MacDuff said. A few years later, doors opened at 4:00 a.m. This year, officials are opening the doors to the

Huntington Mall at 11 p.m., Thanksgiving Night. Shoppers will have 22 hours to grab those special bargains, because more than 150 stores inside, are open until 10 p.m., Friday. Although stores will not open until midnight, Friday; there will be plenty to entertain guests and make the early trip worth their while. The dedicated shopper will enjoy more than just the hunt for a bargain. He or she will experience a true shopping celebra-

Beginning at 11 p.m., Thursday, shoppers can take part in the “Rock the Mall Midnight Ball.” During this event, the first 1,000 people to arrive will receive a free tote, filled with gifts and coupons. One of these totes will feature a special prize: the opportunity to shop 30 minutes before anyone else. During the ball, guests can also enjoy music, games, snacks and refreshments. A spokesperson from Big Sandy Superstore Arena will announce an upcoming concert, and give free, frontrow-tickets to 10 lucky winners in the mall. At midnight, officials will light the large Christmas Tree inside the mall. “The idea is to have a big party,” MacDuff said. Last year, officials counted

more than 50,000 vehicles on the mall parking lot. MacDuff hopes that number grows this year. “We want to be the shoppers’ destination for the Holiday Season,” she said. “We want to promote excitement, and we want to be that spot to go to when you’re trying to find something perfect.” Shoppers’ Safety Tips During the Holiday Season • Keep your purse and wallet on or near you • Keep your children next to you • Place packages and merchandise in your trunk • Lock your vehicle’s doors • Do not park in fire lanes • Be aware of traffic If you see suspicious activity in or outside the mall, contact mall security.

The leaves are falling, the days are getting shorter and pretty soon it will be time to whip up your favorite mashed potatoes and roast the turkey for Thanksgiving. As Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season this winter, it’s important to remember safety precautions for you and your family while the house is full and a lot is going on. Use these tips from to keep your Thanksgiving safe and fun: Cooking for a group can be much more challenging than a normal meal. When family comes together for Thanksgiving, it can be hard to keep track of who is in charge of the kitchen and to make sure all the food is cooked properly. Make sure you know how to prevent bacteria from getting into the food and causing food borne illness. The

U.S. Department of Agriculture offers advice on storing and preparing food for groups whether you’re cooking in advance or making food the day of the event. Everyone may have his or her personal favorite Thanksgiving dish, but for most, nothing is as important as the turkey itself. Making sure you have the perfectly tasting and displayed turkey can also be stressful. Not sure what size to get? A good rule of thumb is to allow one pound per person. Whether you’re using a fresh or frozen turkey, there are important guidelines to follow in the days leading up to Thanksgiving and while preparing the turkey. While cooking, remember the rest of your family around you. Make sure young children are out of the way of the oven and other

hot cooking appliances. If you are cooking outdoors, monitor your food closely to prevent a fire. You can review more Thanksgiving Day cooking tips ahead of time so you don’t need to worry later on. While dinner’s cooking and you’re spending time with the family, you can fill the kids in on where Thanksgiving came from and why America honors this important holiday. President George Washington first recognized Thanksgiving, but it didn’t become a commemorative holiday each year until President Abraham Lincoln issued an official proclamation. Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving or just contributing to the meal, remembering these food safety tips can help keep your holiday happy.

Grill-Roasted Turkey: A Tasty Twist On Tradition (NAPSA)-If you want a traditional, perfectly carved, Thanksgiving turkey but would like to bring a delicious twist to the meal, then look to chef, cookbook author and James Beard-award nominee Kathy Gunst. She has discovered a way to bring the tradition of the Thanksgiving turkey to the holiday table in an unconventional way. Every Thanksgiving, Kathy Gunst roasts a turkey in the oven, but one year she had a larger crowd than usual and needed to cook two turkeys. "So, on a colder-than-normal November day, I decided to grill-roast a second turkey," says Gunst. "The recipe, it turns out, couldn't be simpler." Grilling the bird resulted in a picture-perfect glazed turkey with juicy meat and a subtle smokey flavor. "This recipe is nothing short of a revelation. You will not believe how a plain old turkey, simply seasoned with salt and pepper, placed on a hot grill, can have this much flavor with so little fuss," says Gunst. Grilled Turkey 1 10-12 pound turkey Cleaned and dried. Salt and freshly ground black pepper, seasoned to taste. Heat a fire in the grill (charcoal or gas) and cook a small (10 to 12 pound) whole turkey over indirect heat with a minimum of seasoning. Be sure to place a shallow pan underneath the bird atop the charcoal or burner covers to catch the drippings and reduce flare-ups. Grill for approximately 2 hours (use thermometer to check for doneness). Stuff the bird and/or add an array of vegetables to the grill, like stuffed squash, corn on the cob, or turnips and potatoes for a complete meal. Add your vegetables to the grill 30 minutes or so before the turkey is done. Once the meat is cooked and cooled the bird is ready for carving. "I can't overestimate how important it is to have a good, sharp knife for carving the bird. It should be very tender and carve easily, but a wellsharpened favorite carving knife will make things that much easier," says Gunst. Chef'sChoice(r) Turkey Carving Tips: Three Easy Steps If you want the turkey you serve "gobbled up" this holiday, avoid hacking the bird by trying these simple carving tips from Chef'sChoice(r):

Give Thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving

• Step 1 Be sure to use a good, sharp knife. Sharp knives are not only safer, they will help you to smoothly cut thin, even slices without shredding the meat. Fortunately, you don't have to be an expert to put a razor sharp edge on your knife. Chef'sChoice M130 sharpener professionally sharpens steels and strops all brands and types of knives. Precision guides eliminate guesswork for sharp, durable edges. For help finding a sharpener that's right for you, call (800) 342-3255 or visit • Step 2 After the turkey is cooked (meat thermometer should

read 180° F when inserted in the thickest part of the turkey thigh) cool the bird for 15 minutes. Cooling makes the meat firmer and easier to slice. Remove and set aside the turkey legs and the last joint of each wing. Make a long, deep (to the bone) horizontal "base cut" into the breast just above the wing. • Step 3 Slice down vertically through the breast until you meet the original base cut. This will release perfect, even slices. Following these preparation and carving tips can help make your Thanksgiving a meal to remember.

(NAPS)—The holidays should be a time to reconnect with our loved ones, not exhaust our energy and financial resources. If the season has become more stressful than joyful, it’s time to get back to holiday basics. The experts at Grocery Outlet Bargain Market can help you stay focused on what’s really important this year with tips to prevent you from overstressing and overspending. How To Simplify The Holiday Season Get ready. Take inventory of your supplies early on. Buy items such as wrapping paper, tape, ribbons, stamps, boxes and pantry staples (sugar, flour) well in advance of the holidays. You can look for discounted items when you’re not rushed. Revisit your family traditions. Think through holidays from years past. Which activities caused you anxiety, stress and precious time? Focus on what makes you happy and eliminate what stresses you out. Don’t overcommit. Don’t say “yes” to every invitation. Save room in your schedule for things that might pop up at the last minute.

Hurricane Floral & Gift Shop

Evaluate your gift list. Limit gifts to children only. Pick names or host a gift exchange. Focus on gifts from the heart. Give gifts that show your love— not the size of your wallet. Grandparents will likely value a photo album or a framed piece of children’s art far more than expensive presents. Stay home. A holiday staycation eliminates the numerous stresses and expenses that come from travel. Shop strategically. Sometimes, the places that will save you the most money might not be your go-to store for certain items. For example, extreme discount re-

tailer Grocery Outlet also sells personal care products, toys, decorations and kitchen supplies— at prices up to 50 percent less than traditional stores’. Tips For The Big Holiday Meal Make it potluck. Ask your guests to contribute an appetizer, side or dessert. Ask visiting relatives to make breakfast, so you can focus on the turkey. Prep ahead. Chop, measure and prepare as much as you possibly can in the days leading up to a big holiday meal. Fake it. Not everything needs to be made from scratch. Grocery CONTINUED ON PAGE 13

Remove neck and giblets from inside the turkey. Refrigerate for other use or discard. Rinse and drain juices from turkey. Pat dry with paper towels. Slice butter into 8 slices. Slide two slices butter under skin of the breast and one slice on each drumstick, also under the skin. Place turkey, breast up, on a roasting rack in a shallow roasting pan. Sprinkle turkey cavity generously with salt and pepper. Place three butter slices and lemon slices in main cavity. Tuck wing tips under. Tie legs together loosely. Rub the last slice of butter on the outside breast skin. Sprinkle outside of turkey generously with salt and pepper. Transfer turkey to the oven. Cover breast and top of drumsticks with aluminum foil once they begin to brown to prevent them from drying out. The turkey is done when a meat thermometer reaches 180°F when inserted into the deepest part of the thigh and 170°F in the breast. Let stand 15 minutes before carving.

Holiday Cooking and Fire Safety Cold weather—and holidays-bring increased risk of fire. • In fact, Thanksgiving is the leading day of the year for home fires involving cooking equipment. That makes safety in the kitchen very important, especially when children are at home. • Children and older adults face a higher risk of death from cooking fires than anyone else. • Make sure children are kept at least 3 feet away from stoves and any other equipment that can become hot and they should be kept away from hot food and liquids. Children can be easily and seriously burned if they’re not supervised. • If you choose to deep fry a turkey, the same rules apply about keeping children and pets well away. • Deep fryers should be used very carefully according to directions. Keep in mind you’re heating oil to high temps over an open flame, and splashed oil can cause extremely serious burns. • Have a fire escape plan. Every family member should know at least two ways out of each room, and know to get out of the house whenever the smoke alarm sounds. Decide ahead of time on where to meet once everyone is out, and NEVER call 911 from a burning house unless you are trapped inside. • Working smoke alarms save lives! Having working smoke alarms in your home can give you advance warning if there’s a fire. If your alarm sounds, take it seriously. You only have a few minutes to escape a house fire. • If you haven’t changed the batteries in your smoke & carbon monoxide alarms yet this year, now is a good time. • REMEMBER: Taking just a little time for fire prevention during the holidays can go a long ways towards saving your family’s lives! • For more fire safety information, check out these websites:,,

Be Safe in the Trees

David Payne Sr. Column by David Payne Sr.

You might think that since I've hunted all my life, I've probably spent half my life in a tree-stand. Actually, I can only remember climbing into a tree-stand once in my life and never repeated the experience. Even to me, this seems a bit strange, since I actually did spend half my childhood climbing trees. When I was a small child, my favorite was a very old apple tree in the backyard. That's mostly because it was so easy to climb, but it also had this Garden of Eden

aura around it, in the sense it was a forbidden tree that I wasn't allowed to climb. I could climb very high without running out of limbs. If you climbed trees as a kid, you know what I'm talking about – as you go up the tree, there's a specific path of limbs you have to take to go up and you inevitably reach a point when there are no more limbs within reach. But, as an adult, I'm not so limber and agile anymore. I like moving around too much. I move. I like driving deer – and developed a few techniques to drive them to myself even – and once you're up in the tree, you're stuck in the tree and I am very claustrophobic. Many hunters though, especially bowhunters, love the treestand and they are great things. Project STAND, which “stands (pun intended) for “Stop Treestand Accidents N' Deaths” says that annual tree-stand sales number over one million units per year. That's a lot of elevated hunters. According to STAND, 10 percent to 30 percent of hunters who hunt from an elevated stand will have an incident sometime during their hunting career.

Some of those unfortunate folks don't live to tell the tale, while others suffer temporary or even permanent injury. One interesting point that STAND makes is that some states have actually reported higher fatality rates with tree-stand incidents than with firearm incidents. A major part of the problem is education. If you were born the year I was born – or after – you have to pass a hunter-education course to hunt and they teach about tree-stand safety. If you were born after me, then you don't have to pass the course and the state deems it your own responsibility to educate yourself so you don't get hurt. All they can do for that group of hunters is send out a press release every year, but these things are important to know. You'd think that we'd be getting better as time goes on, but 2011 was the worst year ever for tree-stand injuries in West Virginia. Last year, there were 14 injuries and luckily – no fatalities. Most of this seems like common sense, but here goes: Before you hunt, before you even buy your tree-stand, take

Outdoors Roundup Hurricane Sandy brings unusual fowl visitors to state Hurricane Sandy drove many types of Atlantic coast birds as well as other unusual fowl to provide some unusual sights for West Virginia birdwatchers. Bonapart gulls have been sighted at Tygart Lake State Park. In addition to sightings of gulls at Tygart Lake, over 5,000 ducks and gulls of various species have been recorded at Cheat Lake. The storm may have side-tracked the migration of saw-whet owls that typically pass thru the Tygart Valley area annually from late October into early November. Saw-whets are the smallest owl in Eastern North America. The typical call of a saw-whet is sort of a grasshopper sound that resembles a long crosscut saw being sharpened -- hence the name “saw-whet.” West Virginia teen wins B.A.S.S. Junior World Championship

Alex Goff, 15, Clendenin, a Herbert Hoover High sophomore, won the recent B.A.S.S. Junior World tournament on Alabama's Wilson Lake. Fishing in difficult conditions, he used a spinnerbait and Rat-LTrap to catch three fine bass. Despite temperatures dropping 30 degrees during the tournament, he managed to catch eight pounds of qualifying fish and tie for the day's largest catch with a three pound, seven ounce, largemouth. Goff is the first West Virginian to ever capture this esteemed title. Besides a trophy and bragging rights, he won a 16-foot Triton boat package, a $500 scholarship and a $100 Cabela's gift card. National Elk Refuge celebrates a century of conservation, will see herd reduction The National Elk Refuge is celebrating 100 years of conserving Elk. In 1912, the refuge was created following a series of severe

winters that caused major elk dieoffs. During the winters of 1918, 1941, 1956, 1996 and 1997, the refuge has supported up to 10,000 elk. However, it's feared now that the refuge supports too many elk and the refuge has been given 15 years to reduce the size of its wintering elk herd to about 5,000 – because of fears of diseases that can spread among large numbers of elk gathered in too small an area, such as chronic wasting disease, scabies, foot rot and bovine brucellosis - all diseases that have potential to cause mass die-offs. The refuge has long been home to more elk than the land can support and about 7,000 elk rely on supplementary feed each winter. Because the order imposed no strict limits on feeding or hard-set dates, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has leeway in making changes and will do so based on climate, predation, forage and other conditions.

some time to shop around and buy a stand and harness that's right for you, safe and comfortable. Don't forget comfortable, it's very important. Once you've got your stand, take the time to become familiar with how it works and how to install and use it safely. Sit down and read the instructions. Set up your stand at groundlevel first – by that I mean actually install it on a tree, but stand on the ground when you do it. Use all the recommended safety pins and straps to secure it. Get in it. When you choose your treestand location, choose as straight a tree as possible and watch out for rotten wood or dead, overhanging limbs (widow makers) that may fall. Be extra careful when hunting from a smooth-barked tree, such as maple, (non-shaggybark) hickory and beech when it's rainy. They are very slippery when wet. Of course, wherever you are use extra care when temperatures are below freezing and avoid using elevated stands when it’s icy. You'll need a safety strap that has a quick-release system and will hold you right side up and

not restrict your breathing if you fall. Always wear your safety strap when you're climbing, hunting or descending. Over the life of your tree-stand and equipment, keep your eyes peeled for wear, stress points and loose fasteners. Fix or replace any worn equipment immediately. Keep your equipment clean. Always use a haul rope to bring gear from the ground. Unload your gun before hauling. If hauling a bow, tie your line to the top limb of the bow when climbing and the bottom when descending to avoid snagging arrows in tree branches. Keep at least two points of contact with the tree at all times when climbing or descending. Be extra careful when descending, that's when most accidents occur. Finally, keep yourself secured to the tree at all times, even when hunting. You can get drowsy and fall asleep while in the stand. If you're not secured, you could wake up on the ground, or not at all. Contact David Payne Sr. at

Zoey Grace says Photography 101: “Hello World!” Sunset on Kanawha River

My name is Zoey Grace Adkins and I arrived into this world on Tuesday, November 6th at 7:57 p.m. weighing in at 5 pounds, 10 ounces and was 19 inches long. I was born at Cabell Huntington Hospital in Huntington. My very proud parents are Heather Hutchison and Donny

Adkins. My proud grandparents are Buzzy and Thelma Hutchinson of Milton & Joan and Donald Adkins of Hurricane, WV. My great-grandmother, Florence Ball of Milton, plans on spoiling me rotten!

ISO: 100 Shutter: 1/50 Aperture/F-stop: 25 Flash: None It’s awesome to photograph a sunset, but even better to make the sun come to life in your picture. To get an attention-grabbing shot of the sunset, there are a few rules to follow. First, keep in mind that the sun’s rays can damage your camera’s sensor and lens. When photographing the sun, do not point your camera directly at it, until you have to. When you are in position, find your shot, and use your autofocus function on the camera wisely. First, point the camera toward a nearby tree or object to get the focus locked in. Next, with the focus still locked in, move the camera toward the scene, looking through the eye piece to position the sun where you want it in your picture. Then, either use

a tripod or tree to brace yourself. The camera must be held perfectly still for the long duration of a slow shutter speed. I used 1/50 here, but you may need a faster or slower speed, depending on how bright it is outside. Using a high F-stop helps the sun’s rays pop on the picture, giv-

ing it an almost 3-D effect. Be prepared to take multiple shots. Adjust your shutter and Fstop during every shot to achieve the best portrait possible. It took me nearly 30 minutes and more than 20 failed attempts to finally get this shot.
