Day To Serve A column by Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin Each year, hundreds of West Virginians come together at the State Fair in Greenbrier County to celebrate everything that makes our state great. From livestock shows and concerts, to unique hand-crafted goods and delicious treats, the fair showcases state pride like no other. This year during Governor's Day, we added a new aspect to the celebration-our strong tradition of neighbor help-

ing neighbor. Across the state, we are lucky to have motivated, kind-hearted people working to provide lifechanging support to many. At the fair this year, I asked our volunteer leaders to encourage their friends and neighbors to join them and participate in the Governor's Day to Serve which will run September 15th through the 29th. Last year, volunteers planned and participated in over 400 service projects throughout West Vir-

ginia's 55 counties - including highway clean-ups, food drives, and care packages for our troops. This year, our goal is to build upon 2012's success. If we each dedicate ourselves for at least one day of giving during the Day to Serve effort, we can reinvigorate our communities, provide our families and friends with confidence. Our goal is simply to improve upon our Almost Heaven places in which we live, work and raise our families. Please visit my website,, to learn more about how you can develop a grass-roots service project in your community. Your project may qualify for a Volunteer West Virginia mini-grant of up to $500. By matching our state pride with our unrivaled community spirit and compassion, I hope many State fairgoers return home energized to make a difference in their hometowns. I believe, by sharing our time and talents with others, we can continue to strengthen our hometowns.

Member of Egyptian National Basketball Team to Deliver Inspirational Message at WVSU INSTITUTE, WV - A member of Egypt’s national basketball team will be on the campus of West Virginia State University (WVSU) Friday, Aug. 30, to deliver his inspirational message of “Dream, Believe, Achieve.” Tekha Tarek Selim will be speaking at 7 p.m. in the theatre of the Davis Fine Arts Building on his personal transformation from an overweight high school student to one of the leading basketball players in his country. "Tekha's presentation is so inspiring -- no matter what your goal, he will inspire you to succeed by recognizing bad habits and replacing them with good habits,” said Dr. Robin Broughton, Media Studies Graduate Coordinator for WVSU.

“He is a joy to hear speak from beginning to end; his story is an incredible testament to what you can do if you put your mind to it." The presentation is free and open to the public. Selim’s dream was to play basketball for Team Egypt, but at more than 100 pounds overweight it seemed like a longshot. Determined to reach his goal, Selim adopted a personal mantra of “Dream, Believe, Achieve,” and by believing in himself, eating healthy foods and exercising regularly, he was able to lose 144 pounds in 11 months and achieve his dream. A point guard for Team Egypt, Selim now shares his story with people all over the world and helps

motivate them to change their bad habits into good habits. Selim will be in West Virginia for a week as part of a partnership between the WVSU media studies program and the mass media program of the University of Sharjah (UOS) in the United Arab Emirates. In April, students and faculty from WVSU travelled to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and worked with UOS students on a film together called “#Camels.” Selim, a student at UOS, appears in the film and during his week in West Virginia will film additional scenes for the movie. In addition to his talk at WVSU, Selim will also be speaking at other colleges in West Virginia as well as at high schools and middle schools.

Wright Way Rally Excites Putnam By Justin Waybright

HURRICANE - As the sun set Thursday, the community center at Valley Park transformed into a place of faith, hope and vision. The atmosphere inside was not of this world. A band played heavenly songs for more than 200 people. The music was an ocean of divine power that moved in and out of the crowd. As the group sang the words, "Hallelujah, you have won the victory, Hallelujah, you have won it all for me," men and women in the audience stood with their hands raised high. Tears flooded their eyes. Inerasable smiles covered their faces. Victory and vision was the theme of the Wright Way Ministry Rally. Ministry President James Wright approached the large crowd with boldness. The 45year veteran preacher spoke about the faith of a woman in the Bible's New Testament. The woman in the scripture

Bold declarations - Wright Way Ministry President James Wright speaks biblical promises and truths to more than 200 people during a rally Thursday night at Valley Park. Photo by Justin Waybright had suffered blood hemorrhaging for years without a cure. "She spent everything she had to get healed and was flat broke, deteriorating every day," Wright explained. "Here, she makes a declaration based on God's word - you've got to base your declarations on what God says!" The longtime pastor continued, "She touched Jesus' gar-

ment and was healed - she came hurting and left healed, she came sad and left glad, she came in bondage and left free - Jesus wants to do the same for all of us." The crowd erupted with praise. An unexplainable power and presence surged throughout the room. Moments later, everyone

locked hands and began to pray for one another. Toward the end of the rally, Wright unveiled a fulfilled vision: an answered prayer. "I have a great burden about helping ministers of the gospel I am going to train men and women and give those who don't have a pulpit, a pulpit to preach - We found a headquarters for

starting our fall practice on Tuesday, August 27th 2013 @ Forrest Burdette United Methodist Church. No auditions are necessary. There is a $30.00 fee for the semester. If you love to sing,

Wright Way Ministry," he said. "It's a miracle!" The audience went wild. The cheering of 200 people echoed throughout the park. The excited preacher continued, "It's a building in Culloden, and our next rally will be in that building - it's going to be wonderful." After the event, men and women hugged Wright and patted him on the back. Overwhelmed with emotion, the minister fastened his eyes upward. "What I'm doing is following my dream and my dream is to raise up last-day men and women of God that can blaze a trail for Jesus," he said. Wright, with unwavering faith and determination, leaves Valley Park to see the new property off U.S. 60. He walks by a sign that reads "Joy Lane." "Many churches in this area are losing people - some are closing up - but there is yet some new works on the horizon," Wright declares. Stay tuned to the Putnam Standard as this story develops.

WeeklyDevotional By Mary Jane “SCHOOL DAYS, SCHOOL DAYS” Thought for the week: And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thane house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. Deuteronomy 11-19 (KJV) Cabell county schools started August 8th this year - seems schools start earlier and earlier each year. Remember, when it never started till after Labor Day, early September, and you had enjoyed at least 3 full months away from school and was anxious to return? To be with friends, you had not seen all summer season, to meet and make new friends, to have the rest of your lifetime. School is described in Webster as a place of instruction; a body of pupils. When I went to elementary school, we had primary thru 6th grade, with two rooms and approximately 30 students total - everyone knew one another, where they lived, and how they lived.

Today it’s called pre-k thru 6; some schools have an enrollment of 730 students in elementary grades. Year 2009 Cabell-Midland High School had a total enrollment of 1,883 students. The 2012 graduating class had 401 students. How can you know all your classmates with this many students? Consolidation of schools may not be the future answer. When I attended, it was good to have a rival school spirit, against other schools, especially any type sports games. Now they are discussing all year round school. How is this going to affect the two parent working situation? School three weeks and off three weeks, guess I sound out of the loop, and I know future plans have been proven to work better in other states. I just think of the individual child as a student, a person, and how they are taught today compared to yesterdays. Are we pushing them ahead to adulthood too soon? Could this be causing loss of security, trust in parents, and leaning on drugs for

The Putnam Standard stability? Proverbs 4:13 - Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go; keep her; for she is thy life. We are in the informative computer age, in more ways than one. The Droid, the Internet, Iphone, Ipad, Ipod, Bluetooth, Skype, Robotics, Kindle, etc. Libraries may become obsolete; your car will be programmed to drive itself to destination, while you read your Kindle, and Skype your children. Each household will have a robot to do menial jobs. More obesity, more exercise clinics, call the Dr. on computer, he will diagnose it, then, go to a facility, laser out the diseased part and replace it with a man-made part. Be on your way the next day - called fast repair. We may live longer and faster but with less feeling. We will be the robot. Daniel 12: 4 - But thou Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. God will allow you to do things by your own knowledge and strength, only to make you aware that all your efforts are not sufficient to make it through this life without His divine influence and guidance --- Wilson Khashane Msendevu - quote. Prayer: Our Father in Heaven, give us the instruction to do thy will in all things. Amen.

Tri-County YMCA The Skinny: Aug. 20, 2013 Food Labels – You Are What You Read (Part 2) Food labels are a primary source of being able to understand what is being consumed. Being able to read and understand food labels is important because of the information that is posted - calories, fat, vitamins, sodium and other factors that can play a role in a healthy lifestyle. Last week the focus was on servings, calories and %Daily Values. This week the focus is on other nutrients, vitamins and ingredients. Last week the focus was on servings, calories and %Daily Values. This week the focus is on other nutrients, vitamins and ingredients. Additional nutrient information found on food labels includes carbohydrates and sugars. Why are these so important? Because many people

only look at fat and calories and don’t pay attention to carbs or sugars and these can have an adverse impact on maintaining healthy eating. There are three types of carbs – fiber, starches and sugars. Make sure that the type of carbs include whole grains, brown rice and pasta and a solid selection of fruits and vegetables. Another important part of food labels are the ingredients. Food that contain more than one ingredient must have an ingredient list on the label and those are listed by weight highest to lowest. In other words, those ingredients in the largest amounts are listed first on the list. The Food Drug Administration also has guidelines for certain claims on food labels such as Low Calorie (serving must be less than 40 calories) and Calorie Free (serving must have less

than 5 calories per serving). There are also certain standards for claims that are health related like linking together calcium and osteoporosis or high blood pressure and sodium. Bottom line is that it’s important to not only read but to understand the labels. It could be a real difference in the waistline! For more information on food labels, go to Tri-County YMCA is nonprofit organization located in Scott Depot and has served the Putnam County area since 1991.

Fruth Pharmacy recognizes National Immunization Awareness Month POINT PLEASANT, WV Fruth Pharmacy would like to inform the public that August is National Immunization Awareness Month. Serious diseases such as influenza, tetanus, whooping cough, shingles, hepatitis A & B, and pneumococcal diseases can oftentimes be prevented by immunization. The United States has been able to achieve high immunization rates in children for needed vaccines; however, adult rates for getting needed immunizations are very low. It is estimated only 13-30% of adults receive the proper immunizations. Under the Affordable Care Act, many preventive services,

including recommended adult vaccines, may now be covered by patient health insurance policies without any deductibles or coinsurance. For a schedule of adult immunization recommendations from the CDC, visit: Fruth Pharmacy provides many immunizations including flu and whooping cough.

WVSU Scientist Featured in State Research Journal INSTITUTE, WV - Dr. Barbara E. Liedl, associate research professor with West Virginia State University’s (WVSU) Agricultural and Environmental Research Station, is featured on the cover of the Summer 2013 edition of the Neuron, the West Virginia Journal of Science and Research. Liedl and her staff work to increase disease-resistance in crops such as tomatoes, bell peppers, chili peppers and artichokes. Projects also seek new and innovative growing methods, such as high tunnel production, suitable for West Virginia’s increasing number of small farmers. Providing such knowledge and resources to in-state farmers will, she said, provide both health and

economic benefits to the state as a whole. “West Virginians spend more than $7 billion annually on food,” said Liedl. “Less than one percent of that is spent on food grown in the state. All of us in agriculture are committed to changing that. We want to see more food produced for consumption in state.” A graduate of Purdue University and the University of Minnesota, Liedl has been conducting agricultural research at WVSU for more than a decade, currently from a campus greenhouse and at WVSU’s labs at the West Virginia Regional Technology Park in South Charleston.

nouncing, “While I was a country and classic rock Disc Jockey, I started doing games on the side and realized I was having more fun doing sports, so I decided to get out of music and get into baseball broadcasting full time.” Marco’s career in broadcasting began while he was in college in Erie, Pennsylvania. Marco does play-by-play for multiple sports, such s baseball, high school football, volleyball and basketball. I asked the young announcer, now in his second year as the voice of the Power, what his favorite sport was to announce, “I really like football, but since I work for a baseball team, I would have to say baseball, because you get to basically have a conversation with the listener, while with football the plays come faster, so it doesn’t allow you to get into the story side like you can with baseball.” Everyone has a favorite team and I asked Marco which team he liked the best, “I grew up a Los Angeles Dodgers fan, but in the mid-1990’s I started rooting for my hometown team, the Pittsburgh Pirates, which means I am really enjoying this season.” The Pirates are the parent club of the Power and are currently in first place in the National League Central Division. I am a fan of the Baltimore Orioles, who lost to the Pirates in the World Series in 1971 and 1979. I asked Marco what would happen if there was a rematch this year between his Bucs and my O’s, “Everybody from the 1970’s era (like my dad), when the teams were truly good enough to make the World Series would have so much fun with it, because it was a true rivalry back then and of course the Pirates would win in seven games, which they did both

years.” Marco has multiple jobs for the Power, besides being the team announcer, he serves as the media relations director and handles group and sponsorship sales. Announcers say thousands of words a game and sometimes they say something embarrassing, which also happened to Marco, “During my college days I said a curse word on the air and it was embarrassing because it was in a wide open pressbox with ten other people in it and everyone heard me do it and stopped what they were doing and just looked at me, sometimes a slip of the tongue gets you and you just go on.”

Fishing: pure and simple

David Payne Sr. Column by David Payne Sr.

I was three when I fished for the first time. It was at Little Left Hand Creek in Roane County. My uncle had some hooks, a redand-white plastic bobber and some line. Why there was no rod, I don't know. You don't ponder those questions during your toddler years. But, of course, that's all we needed. There were naturally trees everywhere and a switch, which at some other time might have been lashing my backside in retribution for some offense, was

cut to serve as a pole. He turned over some rocks. Beneath them, were worms, which he crammed into an empty assorted-hook tin. He tied one end of the line to the switch. He tied a hook to the other end of the line and impaled a worm upon it. It wasn't long before the bobber was dancing about on the surface and I jerked up on the switch and brought only a half worm to the surface. I remember his instruction very clearly “don't jerk the line until the bobber goes underwater.” Eventually I did catch a fish and I have a very clear memory of that fish. It had bulging red eyes and I remember it being very white, although it was probably a rock bass and light green. I remember well my excitement at catching it and how much I wanted to eat it, but was persuaded to throw it back because it was so small. When my children were old enough to fish, I gave them rods. The kind of rods fathers usually buy their children, my daughter's was Barbie and my son's was Spiderman themed. They are so close in age (only 10 months, four days apart in age) that they took

their first fishing trip together. Simple bait fishing, with nothing but a stick, line and hook, however, was an experience my 11-year-old son had never had until recently when I had the idea to make a fishing kit based on George Washington's. It was a simple, oval shaped container with some line and hooks inside. Washington, who always had nice stuff, had his fishing kit imported from England. Me, I used a Cloverine salve can and hemp line. I did make some authentic wire hooks, but since it takes forever to for me to make them, I put modern hooks in the kit. Unlike my uncle, I didn't spend my time turning over rocks. There is a much better way to find worms in a forest, just brush away leaves with your feet and pick up the worms that are at the top of the soil eating the leaf litter. We had a half-dozen worms within a couple of minutes. There is a good description of how Americans fished back in the frontier and post-frontier days and I am somewhat ashamed that I cannot remember the title, but it was written in the 1850s, I believe, by a man who took a fishing trip with some buddies to the

Blackwater River in Tucker County. They had a fishing kit like Washington’s and cut their poles at the edge of the stream. They – and Washington as well – had two types of line, a heavy line which comprised most of the fishing line and silk line, which they used as a leader for the hook. I have yet to find silk thread anywhere, so we tied the relativelyheavy hemp cord to the hook and had much success with live bait. Usually, when we fish, he wants to jump in the water and swim. I usually let him, but this day, he was having a blast just fishing and stayed dry. We've had several fishing trips like this since. Back in the day before modern tackle, fishing was up close and personal and if you wanted to get farther out and use more line, you had to have a longer pole. I tried this, but the longer the pole was the more unwieldy it was, which is probably why when you did start seeing long poles in the mid 19th Century (at least in America), they were bamboo. I tried to find bamboo cane poles at various stores, which is what we really needed, but had no luck finding one. So, when little David and I were canoeing up the Elk

River from my parents' house and saw a grove of bamboo growing wild on a forested bank, he was practically begging me to paddle over and cut a pole for him, which I did. The couple of fishing trips, David used the bamboo pole, which was so light and easy compared to what we had been using, it was easy for me to understand why anglers flocked to them when they became affordable in the late 19th Century. Last week, little David eventually tired of fishing and we started looking at rocks along the stream bank. I found a piece of flint and showed him how stone-age folks made knives and arrowheads of it. I found a piece of sandstone that had a trilobite fossil in it and I told David about the last time I found a trilobite – I was 10 years old. David started throwing rocks in the creek again and I soon looked down and realized that the trilobite fossil was gone. It was among the rocks that David was blindly throwing and now laying at the bottom of the stream. I wonder if someday he'll tell the story of the 300-million-yearold trilobite that got away.

Outdoors Roundup The white bass is one of my favorite fish. They don't grow as large as black bass (such as largemouth), but they are very, very scrappy and good fighters. They are also good eating. Some of my most memorable fishing experiences have been fishing in a school of feeding white bass. You can literally catch a fish every other cast for hours. White bass usually stack up just below dams or at the mouths of creeks, or wherever they find

someplace to gorge themselves on shad. What you look for when you want to find white bass are gizzard shad, which make up a large part of the white-bass diet. At times, white bass feed very selectively on the shad, especially when large numbers of shad are migrating. Schools of gizzard shad are very easy to spot, often they are near enough to the surface that you can see them. You can also often see a flash of reflected sunlight off the

occasional shad. I saw a reference in a book to how the 18th Century Mountain State frontier scouts (my ancestor Adam O'Brien was one) and trappers walked with their eyes constantly scouring the ground in front of them. Back in the day, they would have looked for broken twigs, moccasin prints or other signs of an earlier human presence, but they would certainly have been looking for snakes and other dangers as well. I started doing that when I was a teenager and it's served me well over the years. It's kept me out of many yellow-jacket nests, though I've never – fingers crossed – been in a situation where I would have stepped on a venomous snake otherwise, but it could. When I was a boy, I had a severe allergy to insect stings and since I was, as it seemed at the time, constantly mowing or weed-eating something, I was always on the lookout for yellow jackets. If you keep your eyes peeled, they are easy to spot long before you are close enough to get stung. If you're cutting tall grass with a weedeater, you'll see thousands of insects flying all over the place and it might seem difficult to spot one

particular insect from a distance, especially when you have wasps, etc. congregating in the tall grass to drink dew. However, you don't need to actually be looking for yellow jackets themselves, just their pattern. While other insects rove to and fro, yellow jackets have very specific patterns. Even though there might be thousands of flying insects moving in thousands of different ways around and above the tall grass, the human brain is capable of picking out yellow jackets easily – if it knows what to look for and you listen to what the subconscious has to say. If you've ever sat and watched yellow jackets leaving a nest, they do so in a very predictable way. They typically leave the nest at the same angle (usually, a steep one) and at a predictable frequency (say, every three or four seconds – it will vary depending on how big the nest is). So when your brain looks at these thousands of flying insects flying in all sort of directions, ways and speeds, it sees that as chaos, but sees the pattern of yellow jackets leaving the nest as order within the chaos and if it recognizes that as danger, you're attention will be

drawn to it. Maybe this doesn't work for everybody, but it has certainly helped me over the years. Plastic resealable bags are a godsend for fishermen and boaters. I've been using them for years to waterproof various things while on the water. I recently had the idea to put my wallet in one while I'm on the water. I say “plastic resealable bags,” instead of the trademarked, but commonly referred to name that starts with “Zip” and ends with “loc,” upon a very specific request from the Johnson and Johnson Company. Back in 1999, I wrote a column where I mentioned freezing squirrels in a “ziploc” bag. I got a letter from “Marilyn Blood” - I promise I didn't make that up – requesting that I cease using the word, but instead use the word “plastic, resealable bag.” The letter was enclosed in a Ziploc bag – I can use that word since it was one of their bags. This was in the days before newspapers were on the Internet and ours certainly wasn't. They actually had people whose job it was to scour newspapers from around the country looking for any incorrect reference to their trademark. I found it hilarious.

Governor Tomblin appoints Four to the West Virginia Veterans Council CHARLESTON - Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin appointed four combat Veterans to serve on the West Virginia Veterans Council, helping the State Department of Veteran Assistance fulfill its mission of aiding retired military members in the state. The appointments are effective immediately. "Our men and women in uniform have bravely served our country, and I'm pleased these individuals will continue to showcase their patriotism by ensuring their fellow veterans receive the services and assistance available to them with much deserved gratitude from the people of West Virginia," Gov. Tomblin said. Gov. Tomblin appointed James McCormick of Mason County to represent combat veterans from Operation Iraqi

Freedom. McCormick, enlisted in both the Air National Guard and the U.S. Army, rose to the rank of Captain before retiring due to combat injuries incurred during Operation Iraqi Freedom. McCormick is a decorated veteran having been awarded two Bronze Stars with "V" Combat Valor Device, three Purple Hearts, two Meritorious Service Medals and more. Last year, the New Haven man received the Jefferson Award for civic service as well as the national Congressional Medal of Honor Society's "Citizen Service Before Self Award" for his service with disabled and homeless veterans. McCormick owns and operates Raising Cane Farms, Inc., a non-profit farm that assists veterans with disabilities in agriculture therapy and training.

Gov. Tomblin reappointed Miles Epling of Mason County to represent Vietnam Veterans; reappointed Bill Harris of Marshall County to represent World War II Veterans; and James DeCarlo of Kanawha County to represent Korean War Veterans on the W.Va. Veterans Council. The mission of the W.Va. Veterans Council is to determine the general administrative policies of the State Department of Veterans Assistance, to examine the efficiency of the department, to exercise supervision over the operations of the department, to advise the governor and legislature with respect to legislation affecting the interests of veterans, their widows, dependents, and orphans, among other duties.

Velma’sView By Velma Kitchens Getting Older Is it me or do I feel the younger generation thinks I am old? I have seen over the past several months that young people don't treat me as their peer, but instead as an elder. In most cases this is not bad, but please, I do know what I am looking for in a department store and my memory is not gone, just yet. I may not be a spring chicken but I am not that old gray mare. I remember the first time a carryout boy called me ma’am. I just could not believe my ears and that was when I was in my mid 30's! Now they think I am really old. I don't mind getting older, but I do mind the younger people thinking I don't have a brain! And by the way, when we go into a place of business and need service - and ask about most things - a young whipper snapper comes up and says “I don't know”. What do you mean you don't know? Are you employed here? And here is where I chuckle, they go get an older person who knows what they are doing! Not all young people are like this, the ones that know me know that I am not totally gone - just yet. I will admit I don't tolerate old old people they way I used to. A few weeks ago I was in a grocery store and this real elderly person was in a wheel chair, the kind with a cart attached for grocery shopping, and she was blocking the aisle as she was trying to decide what kind of jelly to buy. Really she has had 90 years to decide what she likes and she picks the day I am in a slight hurry to be picky about jelly. Well, I was nice and waited until I could crowd her out of the way and continue on my journey. I really didn't crowd her out but I did give her that look. My Mom has been telling me, “just wait and you will see, your time is coming.” She knows I don't have a lot of tolerance with indecision. And I have found she is right. I think my time has come as the younger people make me sometimes feel like I am ancient. I always look to the older people for help because most of the time they are the ones who have been around longer and have had more of life's experiences. I hope when I do get slower and elderly, someone will take the time with me the way my Mom has treated elderly people. She has taken care so the children can be free to work or do whatever business they have to do.

4th Annual RODs 5k for Meso Benefit Day Sept 21

Ready, set, Fight 5k style. Whether it is getting your shoes laced up, your appetite in gear, hands clapping or your wallets out, come out to the 4th Annual RODS BENEFIT FOR MESO FUNDRAISING EVENT DAY. September 21st is the day Missy Dorsey Bowles brings awareness to the community about mesothelioma. The cancer caused by asbestos exposure. The disease that stole her daddy (Richard O. Dorsey) from her just 5 years ago. "I know that events like mine all around the United States have brought more attention to and funds together to come a lot closer in better treatment since my Daddy was diagnosed and passed away. My Daddy was a selfless, loving, kind hearted, supportive man that I was so proud to call my Daddy, my best friend and my hero. I was and always will be Daddy’s little girl." she states. He was just 65 years young when the asbestos that had been in his body from the 70's decided to take over and in his 4th year of retirement take him home to God. "I miss him with every blink of my eye,

beat of my heart and every breath that I take, but no amount of time, prayers, money or wishing will bring him back. So what do I do in his absence? I have yearly events that bring constant awareness and raise research funds for this cancer." she goes on to say. Along my Meso pathway these last 5 years I have met dozens of the other families affected and broken by this working man’s cancer. From fathers who worked daily in the environment to support their family, to the wives who have washed the clothing, children who ran to Daddy wanting a welcome home hug to innocent living, all with the same heartbreaking story. Recently we said goodbye to a 6 year fighter, at age 37, Janelle Bedel. She left behind a 10 year old son and husband. I am saddened to say that Asbestos is still being used in the United States despite our efforts to try and stop it. BUT we can't give up; we have to keep fighting for the answer. I will work with Linda Reinstein at ADAO and support her efforts to do just that. All around the world people

are fighting for their next breath because asbestos has invaded their bodies. This year I am proud to announce, Lord willing, our honorary guest speaker is 29 year old Michael Bradley from Georgia who knows just how precious life truly is. Michael has a heart breaking story but is still fighting and still hoping and praying for a cure. Come out and hear what he has to say and support him in his fight. He is one of many reasons I do this event. Two of my local friends have lost their fathers within days of each other from this terrible disease. Again, I see it, hear it, meet it and witness it every day, someone suffering, dying and occasionally we have a rejoicing moment that a scan showed no new growth. I can't do this alone West Virginia. Don't cover your eyes or tune me out, this could be YOUR father too. I may be only one person, but I follow the path my Lord has set before me and I make my voice loud. So I urge you to please come learn more about mesothelioma and help raise money for better treat-

ment. The event will be held: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2013 ELEANOR TOWN PARK SHELTER #6 AND UPSTAIRS ROOM AT FIRE DEPT. ACTIVITIES BEGIN AT 10:30 5K RUN/WALK STARTS AT NOON - $25 REGISTRATION FEE ALL PROCEEDS GO TO MESOTHELIOMA APPLIED RESEARCH FOUNDATION WWW.CUREMESO.ORG It’s not just a run, but a walk, Lunch featuring BBQ's by Jimmy for $6, FREE Gospel Sing featuring New Horizon, Adam Dunlap, Elizabeth Browning, WV Couriers and Ed Johnson.

We will have raffles going on which include COACH Purse packages, gift baskets, WV Airbrushed corn-hole boards, weekend adventure get a way, Mardi Gras casino night, Kings Island and much much more, don't miss out.

MARIETTA MILLER ALLISON Heaven gained a precious angel on Saturday, August 10, 2013. Mrs. Marietta Miller Allison, 73, of Poca, passed away peacefully at her home, surrounded by her family, after a long battle of suffering with lung disease. Marietta was a very devoted wife to her husband of 56 years, Mr. Carl Allison. Marietta cherished and lived for her two children and her four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. There was never a more caring, loving and giving person than she was. Nothing more would bring a smile than to do something for someone, or for you to compliment one of her children or grandchildren. There was never a time that she wasn't thinking about how she could improve someone else's life and what she could do for others. She was a member of St. Patrick Catholic Church, Bancroft. She was a homemaker who took pride in her home and making sure her home was always perfect and inviting for anyone who would stop by. She was preceded in death by

her infant son; her father, Corbett Miller; and her brothers, Harvey Lee Miller and Larry Wayne Miller of Flint, Mich., and Danny Ray Miller of Hometown. She is survived by her husband, Carl Edward Allison; son, Timothy Joseph Allison of Craigsville; daughter, Cheri Allison Sowards and husband, Scott, of Hurricane; granddaughters, Allison Nichole "Nikki" Sowards Brewer and husband, Jason, of Hurricane, Ashlie Noel Sowards Oldaker of Eleanor and Tiffany Allison Linville of Craigsville; grandsons, Timothy Justin Allison and wife, Susan Compton Allison, Kaden Alec Linville and Parker Grayson Allison; mother, Mildred Cox Miller of Hometown; brother, Terry Lee Miller of Hometown; sisters, Donna Miller Jones of Hometown, Debbie Miller Hulsizer and husband, Russell, of Potts Grove, Pa., and Nita Sheldon of Nitro; and sisters-in-law, Jean Robinson Miller of Flint, Mich., Sandy Miller Fisher of Red House and Diana Allison Joseph of Poca. She is also survived by a host of nieces and nephews whom she loved very much. There will be a private celebration of Marietta's life held at Haven of Rest Memory Gardens, Red House. Her family requests that contributions are given to Hospice. The family would like to thank Dr. Robby Keith and Dr. Scott Ethridge of Pulmonary Associates of Charleston for their special treatment and care. Also, a very special thank you to Lori Haber, RN of Hospice. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting Gatens-Harding Funeral Home, Poca, assisted the Allison family.

LONA RICE ASHWORTH Lona Rice Ashworth, 93, of Culloden, went to be with the Lord on August 9, 2013, in Lincoln Nursing and Rehabilitation. She was a lifelong member of Trace Fork Missionary Baptist Church.

Born October 2, 1945, in Crickmer, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Pauline Tincher Pate. For some moments in life there are just no words. On August 10, 2013 our loving Wife, Mother and Grandmother was called to heaven. One of the most important things in Judy’s life was her family. She loved and cared for her family above everything else, they were her world. Judy touched all that knew her with her beautiful smile and heart of gold. Anyone that was blessed enough to have spent time with her quickly felt her contagious laughter. She was generous, caring, thoughtful, and always wanted to make sure her loved ones were taken care of. She enjoyed her loved ones near and they loved being with her even more. In addition to her family and friends, Judy loved all of God’s creatures. There was definitely a special place in her heart for cats and dogs. As she walked through The Pearly Gates of Heaven, it is certain that her “special angel” Shadow was there to greet her. She loved Shadow so dearly, and it is a comfort to know that they are now together once again. Apart from enjoying her family and pets, Judy liked to spend many of her Saturday evenings with her friends at the Culloden Opry House. She enjoyed clogging and listening to blue grass music. She truly had a love for life, she was loved by all that knew her and many felt privileged to call


The Putnam Standard her friend. Although she will be greatly missed, and her leaving has left emptiness in our hearts, we have God’s promise that we will be together again. She is survived by her loving husband of 45 years Clarence Lee Dixon; son, Clarence Lee Dixon, II (Amie Harper), grandchildren Chance Dixon and Maranda Dawn Heatherdale, brother, Charlie Pate (Karen), many loving friends, nieces and nephews, and her companions “Sissy” and “Cesar”, who will all miss her dearly.

Cross Country

The Putnam Standard

Hurricane Cross Country: Endurance, Unity, & Heart By Justin Waybright

HURRICANE - Cross country. It's a sport that involves endurance - both mental and physical. It's a sport where the winner is not often the fastest and most skilled athlete, but the one who can withstand the most pain. It's a 3.1 mile test of will. For a group of 28 boys and girls, mastering the art of pushing the mental and physical envelope begins every morning at 6 a.m. For this sport, there is no offseason. Two-a-days, custom diets and cross training make up the distance runner's life. No one knows this more than Hurricane Cross Country Coach Jason Henley. Under his leadership, area teams have achieved state championships, medals and respect throughout the track and cross country community. He's using proven experience and strategy to help the Redskins accomplish something they never have: a state cross country title. "With the boys, we didn't have a tradition until two years ago,

Pack attack - The Hurricane High School Cross Country team practices at Valley Park. The girls and boys are preparing to accomplish a goal that's never been achieved: conference and state championships. Photos by Justin Waybright but last year, for the first time we qualified Hurricane for the state meet," Henley said. "With the girls, they are coming into this season ranked in the top five every year for the past five years but one. We've got a tight-knit group, and we're trying to get those girls on the podium." The coach's early season goal is to ensure the boys' and girls' teams stay in the top five. Henley also desires to see his squad bring home a conference championship. It begins with hard work, he said.

And the Redskins' work ethic is matchless. The boys and girls met throughout the summer, twicea-day, to run on average between 55 and 80 miles per week. It's that kind of drive and dedication that Henley believes will fuel the Redskins to victory this season. "They've built a strong aerobic base," the veteran running coach said. "We're just going to put a knife's edge on it by the end of the season when it really matters." Henley believes the unity among his boys and girls will be

a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming weeks. The boys are like glue, sticking closely together with Luke Miller and Will Forton leading the group. "We use the pack attack approach - last year, only 20-to-25 seconds separated our top five boys," he said. The team will employ the same strategy on the girls' side, with All-State Runner Tori Dent leading the way. The girls have a variety of under and upper-class women: a plethora of experience and

knowledge to use in races where strategy and pace are key. Seniors Ally Lawhorn and Krissy Rich will bring their experience and wisdom to the team. The boys' side is mostly younger runners. But this leaves room for growth, said Henley. "We have a tightly-knit, strong and fit group of boys and girls," he said. "We're going to so some incredible things." Support the team during its first meet at Centerville, Ohio Aug. 24th. The team will also host a home meet at Valley Park Sept. 28th.
