Expansion work at Valley Park to begin soon By Jack Bailey

WINFIELD – Work to expand Valley Park in Hurricane could began by the end of August, after the Putnam County Commission recently awarded the bid for the project to Pray Construction. Commissioners opened bids for the expansion work at their July 24 meeting and awarded the project to Putnam County's own Pray Construction which had the low bid at $1,449,700. County Commissioner Joe Haynes, who also sits on the County Parks Board, said that he hopes to see work on the project begin by the end of the month. Earlier this year, the county acquired 5.6 acres of land adjacent to Valley Park with plans to add an additional ball field, soccer field, and a new entrance to the park. Haynes said that once the expansion project is completed, Valley Park will be even more of an asset to the County. “You already have the Wave

Work is expected to begin in the next few weeks on this 5.6 acre tract of land adjacent to Valley Park in Hurricane. Pray Construction has been awarded the bid to perform the expansion work for the park. Photo by Jack Bailey Pool and the playground,” Haynes said. “When this work is completed it will be even more of an asset.” Haynes said that the new en-

trance into Valley Park should make the park more even visible to people passing by on the bustling Teays Valley Road (Route 34).

The new entrance will also alter the flow of traffic through the park. Cars will enter SEE PARK ON PAGE 3

Run/Walk set to raise money to buy defibrillators By Jack Bailey

HURRICANE – An upcoming 5K Run/1Mile Walk is being held to help raise funds to purchase portable Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) for Putnam County's four high schools and middle schools. The Run/Walk is set for Satur-

day, Aug. 18, beginning at 9 a.m. at Valley Park in Hurricane. The Run/Walk is being organized by the Maura Rae Kuhl AED Foundation, a non-profit organization set up in 2010 with the goal of raising enough money to be able to provide AED's to every school in West Virginia. The Foundation is named in honor of Maura Rae Kuhl who

died in September, 2003, only three days after being born, said Jess Kuhl, Maura's father and organizer of the upcoming Race/Walk. “Nine years ago my daughter died from a heart condition,” Kuhl said, “and both of our boys have a similar condition. When they were getting ready to go to school, we found out that the el-

ementary school did not have an AED, so we bought one.” An AED is an important tool in treating a sudden cardiac arrest or heart stoppage because it can send an electric shock to the heart to try and restore its normal rhythm. AED's are most effective when SEE RUN ON PAGE 3

Program offers help to Problem Gamblers The Problem Gamblers Help

Network of West Virginia, the program that operates the statewide 1-800-GAMBLER helpline for problem gamblers and their loved ones, is offering a support group in Teays Valley to help individuals struggling with a gambling addiction. The agency, in conjunction with Fred Clark, offers therapy group sessions for one and a half hours a week for the duration of three months. Clark, a longtime mental health therapist and Nationally Certified Gambling Counselor, will facilitate the group. Through the 11 years of operating the 1-800-Gambler helpline, the Problem Gamblers Help Network of West Virginia has received nearly 10,000 calls from problem gamblers and their loved ones. One of the main reasons Teays Valley was chosen as a site for this type of treatment is the helpline receives many calls from the Cabell, Kanawha, and Putnam county areas. Kathleen O'Neil, coordinator of this project for the Problem Gamblers Help Network of West Virginia said, "Teays Valley is in close proximity of where we receive calls from this three-county area." Anyone who thinks they or a loved one may have a gambling problem is urged to call 1-800GAMBLER to find out more.

Celebrate National Farmers Market Week locally SUBMITTED ARTICLE HURRICANE -- United States Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack has proclaimed Aug. 5-12, 2012 as National Farmers Market Week, which provides a great opportunity to visit the Putnam Farmers Market in Hurricane and thank local farmers for growing food and being good stewards of the land and water. Since 2000, when the United States Department of Agriculture proclaimed the first National Farmers Market Week, the num-

ber of farmers markets has grown 150 percent across the nation. The Putnam Farmers' Market was one of the markets that emerged during that period. In 2011, Hurricane Mayor Scott Edwards extended an invitation to the Putnam Farmers' Market to relocate in the city park in an effort to bring residents of one of the fastest developing regions together with their rural neighbors. The Putnam Farmers' Market is a producer-only market, which

means the consumer is getting affordable, healthful and convenient products brought directly from a farm within a 50-mile radius. The market allows the farmer to retain a higher portion of the food by selling directly to the consumer. This puts the farmer in the center of the food system and allows small-scale farmers to survive when facing high competition from larger industrialized agriculture.

Farmers markets are community hubs and provide much more than simply a place to buy fresh produce. They are bolstering local economies, improving community health, and bringing people together through a shared social space. Farmers markets are often referred to as the "community's living room." They are places where food becomes part of the culture. The Farmers Market Coalition

states that farmers markets are worthy of celebration, not only during National Farmers Market Week, but also throughout the year. The public is invited to visit the Putnam Farmers' Market during National Farmers Market Week to ask questions, share stories and learn something new. The market is located on Rt. 34 in Hurricane City Park. It is open on Tuesdays from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

participants and corporate sponsors, enough money was raised for AEDs to be placed in all Putnam County schools. This year, Kuhl said, the Foundation hopes to raise $14,000 through the Run/Walk event to purchase portable AEDs that can be taken and used at sporting events and practices at the county's high schools and middle schools. “Just take Hurricane High School as an example,” Kuhl said of the need for the portable AED devices. “If there was a problem

at the soccer field, or the tennis courts, you would not be able to get to the high school where the AED is and get back to the fields in that first five minutes.” Having a portable AED on hand if someone was to experience a heart problem and was able to receive immediate treatment greatly enhances their chance of survival. Registration on race day will begin at 7 a.m., but people can register in advance as well. There is an entry fee of $20 and all entries received by Aug. 10 are guar-

anteed a t-shirt. Age groups for the Run/Walk include 11 & under, 12-14, 15-18, 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, and 60 & over. In addition to running or walking in the event, people can also choose the “Sleep in” option, Kuhl said. For those opting to sleep in, they still pay the $20 registration fee and will receive a tshirt by mail, but do not have to come the day of the event. Kuhl said that he is hoping for 300 participants this year.

Winners in each division will receive a trophy or a medal. Kuhl said that Hurricane Trophy has donated the trophies and medals for the event. In addition to participants, Kuhl is still looking for corporate sponsors for this year's Run/Walk as well. For more information visit the website of the Maura Rae Kuhl AED Foundation at, or contact Jess Kuhl at (304) 3952511 or by e-mail at

RUN FROM PAGE 1 used within the first five minutes of a cardiac arrest, Kuhl said. Through the work of the Foundation, AEDs have already been placed in every public school in Putnam County, Kuhl said. In the future, he said that he hopes to begin placing AEDs in schools in other counties as well. “After we get Putnam County taken care of, we want to go statewide,” Kuhl said. Last year, the Foundation hosted its first Run/Walk. Approximately 250 people participated, Kuhl said. Between the

Rotary club gets lesson on historic New England gravestones SUBMITTED ARTICLE TEAYS VALLEY -- George Six holds a degree in electrical engineering from WVU, but the Putnam Rotary Club this week learned that Six's interests range far beyond the technical world of voltage, ohms and kilowatts. Six has studied art, history and philosophy through old grave markers in New England. "Cemeteries and gravestones allow us to look into the history and culture of the past," he said. "They give us a visual record of changing attitudes towards death. "The changes occur over time. The styles and inscriptions change and cultural trends dictate those." Six displayed a wealth of photos and gravestone replicas from New England, most dating before the 19th century. He also brought along some two dozen books on his esoteric field of study. "(The replicas) were made by some friends of ours from Worcester, Massachusetts, the Gravestone Ladies," he said. "They are three ladies who travel

George Six gives a presentation on old gravestones of New England to the Putnam Rotary Club on Tuesday. Courtesy photo the whole state, take pictures, do [facsimiles], and even sell calendars of their products. "Many of the early settlers were Puritans," he said. "The Puritan world view wasn't limited to the belief that death is a reward, and that shows up in some of the symbolism that they used. "They believed that upon death the soul is 'released' from its earthbound world," he ex-

plained. "Some of the symbols used include coffins, urns, imps of death, geometric rosettes, the skull & crossbones, winged effigies, skulls with faces. "Some of the effigies," Six continued, "look optimistic and cheerful, some are quite clearly scowling, and others have expressions of confusion or uncertainty on their face. "The winged skull is the flight of the soul from mortal man. "The death's head was a clear warning by the Puritans to live every moment in anticipation of the moment of death and transition to the afterlife," said Six, "an eternity either of salvation -- or damnation." "Amen, brother," a minister in the audience called out. On the old memorials, the letter "J" is usually represented by "I"; and "V" is used for "U." And the runic "thorn" for "TH" resembles the Latin letter "Y." A sign such as "Ye Olde Pub" should be read as "The Old Pub," Six explained as he pointed out the details of several inscriptions.

"The earliest gravestone on Cape Cod is in 1683, 60 years after the first settlement," Six said. “A stone in Windsor, Connecticut, dates from 1644. The earliest gravestones in the Boston area date from the 1650s." Field stones and wooden markers were often used on earlier graves. The wood deteriorated and the stones were often lost. In cleaning up one Boston burial ground, the markers were placed aside in a pile, and then people could not remember where to place them. The stones and their history are still there, but the graves are lost. Bakers took slate markers from another Boston cemetery for baking bread in their ovens. "When you got bread from these bakeries, the bread often had impressions from the gravestones,” Six said. Latin inscriptions such as "Memento mori" ("Remember your mortality" or "Remember you must die") and "Fugit hora" ("Time flies") often appear.

Many inscriptions are phonetic, and if a carver ran out of space, he simply continued the word on the next line. But, in spite of spelling and style, some of the inscriptions may be sending clear messages across the centuries. There is the sentiment, for instance, on the stone for Cynthia Stevens (1742-1776) in a burial ground in Hollis, New Hampshire: Here lies Cynthia, Stevens wife, She lived six years in calm and strife. Death came at last and set her free, I was glad and so was she. There were few divorces among Puritan couples. We wonder what epitaph Cynthia might have left for her husband had he gone first.

2012 Putnam County 4-H youth livestock sale a success SUBMITTED ARTICLE The pounding of the gavel and the word ‘sold’ called out by the Rick Pearson Auction Company for 153 Putnam County 4-H youth signaled the end of months of hard work and learning. The 4-H livestock auction is the culmination of months of animal selection, feeding, project books, workshops, animal training and for some,a place on the county livestock judging team. Some of the learning activities include topics about the animal digestive system, quality assurance, bone structure correctness, and market readiness. Profits from animals go into college accounts and to fund next year’s projects including the purchase of animals, feed, vaccinations, veterinary services, grooming supplies, and building supplies. Putnam County is fortunate to have great businesses supporting this program. They recognize the positive youth development that they are fostering. Prior to the auction this year’s buyers were served barbeque dinner donated by Nelson’s Meat Processing and paper products and water donated from Farm Credit of the Virginias. Although WVU Extension Agents and adult volunteers guide the youth throughout the project, older 4-H members mentor younger members in feeding, grooming, and in showing techniques that have worked for them. Completion of a record guide is also required for all projects which require youth to calculate costs, daily gains, and a profit or loss statement. 4-H’ers compete in twoshows at the fair. First, the animals are judged based on industry standards for a market placing, after which, they show in the showmanship class. This year’s market class grand and reserve champions include: Market Steer Champion: Geena Wears; Reserve Champion: Brandon Rhodes Feeder Calf Champion: Bailey

Wolpert; Reserve Champion: Michelle Casto Replacement Heifer: Grace Wolpert; Reserve Champion: Paige Singleton Purebred Heifer: Emma Nazarewycz Market Hog Champion: Charlie Cain, Reserve Champion: Josh Crites Market Lamb Champion: Caitlyn Herdman, Reserve Champion: Austin Ervin Special Lamb Champions: Tommy Vaughn and Timmy Eads; Reserve Champions: Ethan Gibson and Celeste Spencer Market Goat Champion: Peyton Gibson; Reserve Champion: Mitchell King Market Rabbit Champion: Makayla Adkins; Reserve Champion: Lela Reedy The second of the two shows is showmanship.

Remembering Andy Hansroth,outdoors writer

David Payne Sr. Column by David Payne Sr.

I was a teenager in the mid1990s, when the U.S. House of Representatives passed a big gun-control measure. According to the newspaper accounts, when the announcement came, the entire Charleston

Gazette staff cheered – except for one guy, Andy Hansroth, the outdoors writer. An argument ensued, which was entire Gazette staff vs. Andy Hansroth, which culminated in Andy and James A. Haught writing opposing columns on gun-control. That Gazette debate caused quite a flurry – my pro-SecondAmendment father cancelled our Gazette subscription and some 20 years later, still no issues are allowed in his house. I learned, as I'm sure Andy did, the news media overall – especially in larger markets - is pretty liberal. It's good to know that there is a place in that world for good old boys like Andy and me. Andy could be Grizzard-like at times. He had a wit I always enjoyed. His West Virginia Encyclopedia article on hunting dogs begins “Since the human nose is virtually worthless...” John A. “Andy” Hansroth was

born in 1959 in the Eastern Panhandle and was the Gazette's outdoors writer for many years. Whether it was gun control, deer farming, mountaintop removal, Andy called his shots exactly as he saw them. He could be tough on the DNR, something I've never seen any reason to be myself, but what he truly believed, he said. I have always respected that. When chronic-wastingdisease was first discovered in Hampshire County about 10 years ago, Andy came down hard on deer farming, as did I. There was, however, one key difference between us, I was the outdoors writer at the state's 6th largest newspaper and he was at West Virginia's largest. What he wrote often got national attention. Andy was always getting ripped by the gun-control crowd, deer farmers and a host of other people who didn't

Outdoors Roundup: New Sport Fish Poster Available By David Payne Sr.

aThe West Virginia Division of Natural Resources recently made a sport-fish identification poster available for free. The poster features paintings of game fish found in West Virginia. It was produced by the DNR's Wildlife Resources Section, said Frank Jezioro, DNR director. “We’ve published this poster in response to many outdoor enthusiasts who have been asking for something like this for a while,” said Jezioro. “The fish illustrations have been printed on the back of our fishing regulations for years, but the images on this poster are much larger and clearer.

Special Antlerless Hunt Applications Accepted The West Virginia DNR is now accepting applications for limited-permit antlerless hunting at several wildlife management areas, said Curtis I. Taylor, DNR Wildlife Resources chief. “These limited permit areas provide antlerless deer hunting opportunities in counties or areas of the state where wildlife biologists have determined that limited numbers of antlerless deer permits are necessary to meet management objectives,” Taylor said. Three Wildlife Management Areas (Calvin Price State Forest, Elk River and Upper Mud River), National Forest Land in Tucker County and five counties or portions thereof (Clay, Fayette, Nicholas, Pocahontas and Webster) will have a limited number of Class N licenses for resident and Class

NN licenses for non-resident antlerless deer hunting from October 25-27 on private land only and November 19 through December 1, December 13-15 and December 28 through December 31 on private and public land. Applications must be received by the DNR by August 24. The 2012 limited antlerless deer season will provide an opportunity for 650 residents and non-residents to participate on the three WMAs and national forest land in Tucker County. An additional 1,500 residents and non-residents will be selected to hunt antlerless deer in the five counties (Clay, Fayette, Nicholas, Pocahontas and Webster) that are restricted to antlerless deer hunting. For more information on antlerless deer season dates and bag limits, consult the 2012-2013 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Summary, which is available from West Virginia hunting and fishing license agents, DNR offices and online at . These applications may be downloaded from the DNR’s Web page at under the “Hunting/Main Page” heading.

agree with what he had to say. You can still find some surviving anti-Hansroth releases online from various people going after something Andy had written. My favorite example is a religious article – and this was posted just this year – that calls Andy a “Charlton-Heston clone” and “High bishop in the hunting hierarchy.” I don't know if Andy ever realized that some kid would be reading his stuff and think “I want to do that someday.” I was such a kid. I sometimes think about Andy when I write about the outdoors. I wish I had gotten to meet him. I wish I could call him up right now and tell him what an inspiration he was to me, but I can't. A father of three and only 45, Andy died in 2005 as a result of an operation by a doctor with very questionable credentials and Andy's case was one of many in a flurry of malpractice lawsuits against him. There ap-

parently was a settlement reached in that case last year, which, of course, doesn't bring Andy back or write the many things that have remained unwritten. What's sad to me is that Andy's writings are not readily available today – at least not freely on the Internet. I wasn't able to find any of his books for sale anywhere and I can only find one of his outdoors columns that can be read without using a credit card. That's a shame, because it’s hard for a writer's memory to live on if his words aren't readily available. But I remember Andy Hansroth. It's hard to forget somebody who inspired you to write a column every week for more than a decade. Contact David Payne Sr. at
