Sewer extension nears completion By Justin Waybright justin@theputnamstandard.com

Aging sewer lines, water lines and septic tanks will soon be a thing of the past for residents across the county. Putnam PSD crews are more than 60 percent done with a project that will bring service to nearly 500 new customers in Putnam County. E.L. Robinson Engineering is the firm that is overseeing the project that entails the extension of more than 105,186 linear feet of sewer line throughout several areas of the county. About 43,983 linear feet of sewer line will serve 277 new customers along W.Va. 33, according to design documents. The Putnam PSD hopes to gain about 56 new customers along U.S. 60 with the extension of 11,245 linear feet of line.

Arctic weather blasts the county By Justin Waybright justin@theputnamstandard.com

Bone-chilling temperatures, breath-stealing winds and slick roads created a dangerous start to the week. More than 1,380 Appalachian Power customers in Putnam County were without electric Monday and 232 customers on Tuesday. The power outage caused the Putnam County Courthouse to close for part of the day on Monday. Putnam County was among the 53 county school systems that cancelled on Monday and Tuesday. Numerous school activities and events were cancelled including the Board of Education meeting. The next meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Jan. 21. Calls to 911 lit up phone lines regarding vehicle accidents and fires while the Putnam PSD received about 40 calls from residents experiencing frozen pipes. Frank Chapman, director of the Putnam County Office of Emergency Management, said for the most part the county weathered the cold temperatures.

Hurricane Middle School students Christian Hill, Lucas Torres, Maddie Pifer and Alex Torres enjoy a snow day. The four raced down the hill behind Main Street's First Baptist Church Friday afternoon. Arctic temperatures and wintry weather closed Putnam County schools for three days and created hazardous driving conditions. “We had several power outages in the area but just for a short duration,” he said. “Most of those outages were in the Red House area.” The Putnam County Emergency Operations Center was open all day Monday and Tuesday to help residents in need. The Na-

tional Guard Armory in Eleanor opened as a warming station for those needing assistance from Monday to Wednesday, until the arctic chill left the area. “Fortunately no one used the facility which was good,” he said. “We open warming areas as we have power outages and need

them.” Chapman said his crew was prepared for a busy 48 hours. "Ice was our biggest concern on highways, so we encouraged everybody to slow down and give yourself room," he said. "We enSEE ARCTIC ON PAGE 4

The 2014 Legislative Session has just begun and local senators and delegates are bringing ideas they hope will improve the state and county. From the creation of jobs to the battle against the drug epidemic, policymakers are ready to make their voices heard. Sen. Mitch Carmichael (R) weighed in on some of the issues he will focus on during the 60-

day session. His ideas center on boosting the economy. "It's amazing to note that we have the lowest workforce participation rate in America there's a greater number not working than any other states," Carmichael said. "We need to allow the private sector to create jobs, we need tax reform to make the environment more business friendly, then we need to reform the components of our civil justice system." The senator continued, "It's time to put our people back to

work." Sen. Mike Hall (R) also places job creation high on his agenda. "I want to bring policies that will help make the economy even stronger for small businesses in particular," he said. "Regulations can sometimes be overreached - there is a piece of legislation that will help curb some silliness in those regulations." One such idea will be directed toward a business tax, involving equipment and inventory. Both Hall and Carmichael will sup-

port a bill to fix certain requirements imposed on businesses. "We have bills to reduce the tax on business inventory and equipment," Carmichael said. Hall added, "We want to keep close watch on bad regulations, and we still have taxes that need to be fixed, like the equipment and inventory tax. Our state doesn't have a taxpayer Bill of Rights, so I want to make sure we reduce ridiculous regulations, make our taxes fair and produce SEE SESSION ON PAGE 6

Hurricane to receive improvements By Justin Waybright justin@theputnamstandard.com

City leaders approved $49,000 worth of grant resolutions during the January Hurricane Council meeting. The first is a $20,000 Department of Home Energy Grant that will allow city officials to schedule energy audits for about 50 Hurricane residents. City Manager Ben Newhouse believes the project could help people of the city save money on power bills. "I want to target people like senior citizens and those on fixed income, so they can save

money and use it for essential needs like groceries and medication," he said. "We're trying to get the ball rolling." The Department of Energy has awarded the city more than $220,000 during the last three years for similar projects. Newhouse believes grant funding like this is a "win-win for everybody." "Our role here is not just to facilitate, but to help people in the community when they have needs," he said. The next grant resolution the council approved will boost the police department and City Park. Sen. Mike Hall, (R) helped secure the $29,000 Community Participation Grant to make this possible. The money will be used to purchase two Toughbooks for police officers and to purchase a new concession stand and shelter at City Park. "Every year, senators and delegates help us," Newhouse said. "We're trying to get these projects done." Next, Mayor Scott Edwards mentioned Virginia Avenue and the problems surrounding the

roadway. "I travel it a lot and this year it's gotten worse," he said. "From Wallace Street West - we don't own that road, but from Lynn to Wallace - we take care of." The mayor continued, "I'm asking DOH to repair the road as soon as possible." Council members approved a letter to be sent to the Department of Highways, requesting the repair of Virginia Avenue. Edwards also informed the council of his plan to create an online petition regarding the project. "Whether this will do anything or not, I don't know," he said. Next, representatives from the city's police and fire departments informed the council of their success in 2013. Last year, the Hurricane Fire Department answered 926 calls and 62 structure fires. The Hurricane Police Department answered 570 calls and made 280 arrests in 2013. The Hurricane City Council meets at 6:30 p.m. during the first Monday of every month unless otherwise announced.

Nonprofit enacts new programs in 2014 By Justin Waybright justin@theputnamstandard.com

EnAct of Putnam County is bringing three new programs to the area this year. The nonprofit organization will offer a Clothing Closet, Hygiene Closet and Baby Pantry. All three are geared toward helping those in need. "During the coat drive, we found out what the county's needs were, so we're trying to get the programs started and get them off the ground," said Barbie Spade, family support coordinator. The first program is the Clothing Closet, which consists of new and gently used clothes for all ages, and sizes for men, women and children. EnAct is accepting donations now. The clothes will be distributed to those in need once per quarter. The next program is the Hygiene Closet. It will help provide basic necessities and toiletries that food stamp cards do not cover, Spade said. "People may be having a hard time and struggling to get these items, so we're asking for donations to help them," she said.

"What we have learned is that this is a need for all ages in Putnam County." Shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, combs, brushes, soap, tissues, one gallon ZipLoc bags, tooth brushes, toothpaste, laundry detergent, fabric softener and dishwashing soap top the list of items needed for this program. "It's nice to have something little to call yours, especially during an emergency," Spade said. Like the Clothing Closet, the Hygiene Closet supplies will be distributed once per quarter to those in need. More than 200 students across the county are in need of these basic necessities, she said. "These children have been recognized by their school principals, counselors and teachers," Spade said. "We are implementing this program in the elementary schools within the county first to see the need within the community." The Baby Pantry is another new program EnAct will introduce this year. Supplies to donate include bottles, diapers, car seats, wipes, formula, food, toys, clothing, swings, play mats and any baby item that is in good condition and not recalled.

Marshall named new Toyota WV President Toyota announced the promotion of Millie Marshall to President of Toyota Motor Manufacturing, West Virginia, Inc. (TMMWV ). Marshall replaces Yoji Suzuki, who will serve as TMMWV corporate advisor, effective January 2014. In her new role, Marshall will serve as the fifth president since the Buffalo plant’s ground breaking in 1996. TMMWV employs 1,300 team members with an annual payroll of over $127 million. The plant produces 4-cylinder engines for the Corolla and Matrix; V6 engines for the Sienna Highlander and Lexus RX350; and automatic transmissions for the Sienna, Highlander, RX350, Avalon, Camry and Venza. Since joining Toyota in

1991 at the company’s vehicle and engine assembly plant in Georgetown, Kentucky, Marshall has held a variety of leadership roles within the company’s manufacturing operations. Marshall served as general manager of administration at Toyota’s Huntsville, Ala. engine plant, overseeing human resources, corporate affairs and accounting and finance. Additionally, she was vice president of human resources and of information systems at Toyota’s North American manufacturing and engineering headquarters in Erlanger, Kentucky. Most recently, Marshall served as senior vice president at the West Virginia powertrain plant.

EnAct helped more than 350 residents during the month of December. Also, more than 500 coats were given to those in need during the Coat Drive. Spade is excited to have the opportunity to help boost the quality a life for the ones she serves. She urges others to get involved. "It's extremely important to donate if you're able to give back, because we have people who may have just lost a job and don't know where to turn," Spade explained. She hopes to have the new programs enacted by April 2014. EnAct serves residents in Boone, Clay, Fayette, Kanawha and Putnam counties. The 2727 Main St. office in Hurricane is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and closed for lunch noon to 1 p.m. For more information or to donate, call (304) 562-6037.

ARCTIC FROM PAGE 1 couraged folks to stay in if they don't need to be out.” Chapman said first responders were ready to respond if needed. “People need to know it may take them longer to get there than it does normally," he said. At 10:30 a.m. Monday, firefighters from Teays Valley and Hurricane fire departments responded to a chimney fire in the 600 block of Steeple Chase Drive. Crews attempted to extinguish the small fire from the roof, but icy conditions made it impossible. Teays Valley Captain J.T. Smoot climbed a ladder to drop a chemical pack into the chimney to put the small flame out. It worked. Within minutes the fire died. "With this weather, we've got to find ways around it and change tactics," said Hurricane Asst. Chief Dana Spade. "When the weather turns like this, we expect things like this to happen." Spade urged all homeowners to clean and perform regular maintenance on their chimneys. The National Weather Service in

Charleston issued a Wind Chill Warning until 3 p.m. Tuesday. "A Wind Chill Warning means the combination of very cold air and strong winds will create dangerously low wind chill values. This will result in frost bite and lead to hypothermia or death if precautions are not taken,” according to the weather service. During the two day arctic blast the state experienced wind chills minus 20-degrees in Elkins, minus 24-degrees in Beckley, minus 20degrees in Huntington and minus 22-degrees in Charleston. Crews at the Putnam PSD were also geared up for busy days and nights expecting phone calls to come in when the temperatures dropped. Scott Jones, communications coordinator, was ready for the phone calls to start coming in on Tuesday morning. “We received about 40 telephone calls from residents wanting to know if we had a power outage,” he said. “When we said no we were fine, then people knew their pipes were frozen and asked

RECIPE OF THE WEEK:

Spiced Nuts Ingredients 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted ½ tsp. ground cumin ¼ tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne) 1 can (10 oz.) Mixed Nuts Directions: Heat oven to 375°F. Mix butter and seasonings until well blended. Pour over nuts in large bowl; toss to coat. Spread evenly into 13x9-inch pan. Bake 7-10 min. or until lightly toasted, stirring after 5 min.

if we would come out. The PSD takes care of its customers up to the meter.” Jones issued some tips for homeowners for the next time temperatures drop into single digits. "Make sure everything is insulated and well-heated," he said. "Leave a thin stream of water running from the faucets - this makes it harder for the pipes to freeze. Also, open the cupboard underneath bathroom sinks, so the pipes will stay warm." Jones cautioned people to not thaw frozen pipes with an open flame, but use a hair dryer instead.

Getting off those holiday pounds It is pretty much a fact that most of us gain weight during the holidays.Why? Because of holiday parties and dinners and the desire to eat, drink and be merry! According to various studies and information, an average American will consume approximately 4,500 calories and 229 grams of fat at a traditional holiday meal. These numbers don’t factor in breakfast or snacks either which can translate into extra pounds quickly. Even if the weight gained equals only 1 or 2 pounds, it can accumulate and add up over time and if you are already struggling it makes the battle even more difficult. The first step to take is to set a realistic goal. What does this mean? This means something that can be achieved but also be something that can be flexible. Mistakes can and will be made and it is important to understand that. Set weekly goals or small goals so progress can be seen. Changing diet and exercise habits is a big commitment and there is no shame in knowing that there will be times that failure may occur. The focus should be on progress and little victories. Secondly, shedding post-holi-

day pounds should not be viewed as a diet but more of a lifestyle change. If not, there is a greater chance of gaining the weight back. It is better and typically more successful to have gradual weight loss versus a fad diet that drops weight quickly. Consider the fact that one pound equals 3,500 calories, so in order to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week your daily caloric intake should be reduced by 500 to 1000 calories. Keeping a food diary or using an app such as My Fitness Pal or Lose it can help you track what you eat daily.

Last, remember that a lifestyle change is not just cutting caloric intake but also making exercise a part of your daily routine. Changes such as this can help in the long run with chronic disease issues such as diabetes. If you live in a colder climate, now is the time to join a gym or a group exercise class that will help you get moving. You can also utilize physical activity at home. The important thing is to make sure you have a plan in place and record your activity – this will help you stay accountable. Tri-County YMCA is non-profit organization located in Scott Depot and has served the Putnam County area since 1991. We offer a variety of fitness classes, programs and activities for individuals and families of all ages. For more information, please call 304-7570016 or visit us online at www.tri-countyymca.org.

SEWER FROM PAGE 1 New water lines will complement updated sewer lines for all residents in Marina Park in Scott Depot. The new system will replace aging septic tanks and sewer lines. Mike McNulty, Putnam PSD General Manager hopes to have the work that will update 50-plusyear-old lines throughout Marina Park, W.Va. 33 and U.S. 60 finished by Spring 2014. "The infrastructure there was crumbling," he said. "Now, the project is in progress and the new sewer lines will be better for the

residents." The Putnam PSD borrowed more than $16.2 million from the USDA to complete the project. Also, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers chipped in with a $400,000 grant, secured by U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito. Starting with Marina Park, 5,880 linear feet of 6-inch waterline and 12,500 linear feet of 3/4-inch service line will be installed, according to project outlines. Also, residents will see new fire hydrants on the right of way. The W.Va. 33 project includes

the construction of 8-and-10-inch sanitary sewers and pump stations to serve the previously un-served area of the county. About 43,983 linear feet of new sewer line will extend from west of W.Va. Route 817 to Rocky Step Road. A new 8-inch gravity sanitary sewer and grinder pump station will serve 163 new customers along Rocky Step and Kilgore roads. Next, the U.S. 60 project entails the construction of 8-inch gravity sanitary sewers to serve the previously un-served area between Sam's Fork Road and Rider Creek Road. Also, the manholes in Lexington Estates Subdivision will be renovated. About 56 new customers are expected to receive service from this portion of the project. The Putnam PSD hopes to generate about 500 new customers by the completion of the W. Va. 33, Rocky Step Road, Marina Park and U.S. 60 sewer extensions. Putnam PSD Chairman Joe Miller commented about the overall progress thus far. "It's well on its way to completion," he said. Paul Callahan, Putnam PSD Secretary, described the overall goal behind the Marina Park project. State Capitol Complex Charleston, WV 25305 Capitol Phone: (304) 340-3121

A map outlines the ongoing extension projects for Putnam PSD. Included are areas along W.Va. 33, U.S. 60, Marina Park, and Kilgore and Rocky Step roads. Once complete, more than 105,000 linear feet of new sewer line will run to these areas, generating an estimated 500 new Putnam PSD customers. Courtesy E.L. Robinson Engineering Firm. "Our objective is to bring a blighted area of the county up to modern sewer and water standards," he said. "We're trying to improve, and we think these people need proper sewer service as well as any other sections in the county." Once complete, sewage from Marina Park will run into the treatment plant in Hurricane. Sewage from the U.S. 60 andW.Va. 33 projects will run into the treatment

plant in Nitro. Scott Jones, the communications coordinator for the Putnam PSD, is excited about what the extension project can do for the county's future. "This should help make Putnam County even more attractive, and open up a nice chunk of the county for businesses," he said. "It will help lay the infrastructure for people and businesses."

SESSION FROM PAGE 1 a predictable legal climate." Sen. Chris Walters (R) plans to support bills that promote broadband expansion and technological advancements. He believes this will make the region more desirable to outside businesses. "In the 21st Century, if we don't have the fiber connectivity for our businesses, we're missing that part of the equation," Walters said. "We need to make areas better for business, and Putnam County will benefit." The long-awaited completion of U.S. 35 is high on the list for not only this senator, but virtually all the members of the House and Senate that represent the county. Hall believes, once completed, the roadway will also boost the local economy. "Route 35 is very much on the governor's radar," he said. "That opens up so much for development - it could be the future of Putnam County." Del. Jim Butler (R) is hopeful that a boost in the job market and economy could provide a trickle down effect that would curb drug abuse in this region of the state. A wage increase is his solution. "I'd like to the see minimum wage increased, but would really

like to see wages across the board raised - we're for the people having jobs," Butler said. "This is better for society, and could help overturn and eliminate some of the drug problems." Carmichael has another plan to curb the drug problem. His plan centers on testing those who receive public assistance. "I'm seeking to introduce legislation that will require public assistance recipients to submit to random drug testing," the senator said. "I want to do this in a compassionate way to make sure children are growing up in a drug-free home." This year will mark the first legislative session for Del. Josh Barker (D) who replaces Del. Josh Stowers. Barker said he plans to take it slow and learn what the people he represents need. "I'm not there for personal endeavor - I'm there for the people," Barker said. "I'm going to listen to the people that put me there and try to help them." The delegates and senators representing Putnam County encourage residents to bring their concerns forward. The 2014 Legislative Session began Wednesday, Jan. 8, and ends Saturday, March 8.

Christian's Sports Beat: Finding another gear

By: Christian Deiss

Two years ago, I saw something that I knew was going to be special. I was in the stands at Hurricane High School as the Hurricane Redskins were taking on the George Washington High School Patriots in high school football, when I saw Ryan Switzer, a junior running back for the Patriots find another gear after he broke into clean air scoring a touchdown on a 56-yard run. Since then he has continued to find that extra gear, winning the Kennedy Award two times, which goes to the top high school football player in West Virginia and being named an All-Ameri-

can Punt Returner after his just concluded freshman season for the North Carolina Tar Heels. A week before Switzer played in the 2013 Belk Bowl in Charlotte, NC on Dec. 28, against the University of Cincinnati Bearcats, I got a chance to talk to Ryan while he was in town visiting his family in Charleston. I started things off by asking him what it was like playing for UNC, “It has been very fun. When I was recruited to play at UNC, I loved the coaching staff and I loved the Chapel Hill area and the school. It’s been a great experience for my first year and I can’t wait for the next three years� he said. Switzer was recruited by a number of major colleges such as Penn State, UNC and West Virginia among others, before choosing the Tar Heels prior to his senior season at George Washington. I wanted to know the difference playing in high school and college and Switzer told me, “I think the biggest difference between the two is the speed of the college game. College is a lot faster and the guys are a lot bigger. There is also a lot more prep

work, like watching film. A lot more that goes into a game in college than in high school.� During the regular season for the Tar Heels Switzer had an outstanding freshman year, returning four punts for touchdowns, averaging over 20 yards for his 21 returns, catching 29 passes for over 300 yards and three touchdowns and tossing a touchdown on an option play. When the season started Switzer was third on the Tar Heel depth chart for returning punts, but moved up to first after getting the chance to show the coaches what he was made of. In the Belk Bowl, Switzer scored his fifth touchdown on a punt return, tying the NCAA record for a single season. The 86-yard touchdown return got Switzer the Most Valuable Player award for the game as the Tar Heels beat the Bearcats, 39 to 17. I asked Ryan what it is like playing in front of a worldwide audience, “That’s a perk of playing college football at a BCS school, a lot more people get to watch you, not only the people in the stands but everyone across the country. Knowing that there

Christian interviews George Washington standout Ryan Switzer during a recent visit to Charleston. Courtesy photo are thousands of eyes on you during the game means you have to play a little harder. You have to make sure you do your job so you don’t mess up in front of a lot of people.� When I play soccer or run I like to have my family and friends cheering for me. I asked Switzer how important his family has been in his young but notable career, “My family has helped me get me to where I am at now, es-

pecially in the recruiting process, taking me to the different campuses and football camps. They have always been in the stands when I play, they are my best support staff and I am thankful to have them.� When I saw Ryan return the punt against Cincinnati it was like a flashback to the first time I saw him play at Hurricane and I know I will see him find another gear again‌ soon.

Tips to prevent frozen pipes during cold weather Every winter, Putnam PSD is called to temporarily shut off service for numerous homes and businesses that have experienced leaks and/or plumbing damage as a result of the freezing of water in internal pipes. As ice forms, it expands in volume and can therefore result in broken pipes and fittings and create a leak that can lead to property damage and expensive repair costs for the property owners. In order to reduce risks of frozen pipes, here are some preventative measures residents can take: • Insulate pipes that are located in unheated portions of a building such as basements, crawlspaces, and garages. • If any spigots for garden hoses or sprinkler systems are located on the outside of the

building, ensure that the valves leading to them are shut off and the pipes are drained. • If any sinks are located on an external wall, leave the cupboard doors underneath them open so the pipes can be warmed by your building’s heating system. • On nights when it is expected to be particularly cold, leave one or two faucets running with a thin (size of a pencil lead) stream of water. The flow will help keep the water in the pipes moving, thereby reducing the freeze risk. • Make sure that the building’s walls and windows are well-insulated and all cracks that may let cold air inside are repaired. Property owners are responsible for leaks and repairs beyond

the water meter; following these tips before the arrival of frigid weather can pay dividends by helping to avoid costly repairs. If individuals do experience pipe freeze, attempt to thaw the

frozen portions of the pipes with a hair dryer (never a blow torch or other open flame, per risk of fire). Once the pipes are thawed, check for visible leaks and ensure that you do not have low

water pressure. For assistance thawing pipes or finding and repairing leaks, think safety first and call your landlord, a plumber, or a trusted friend.

Hurricane slips past Winfield 64-62 By Chris Stadelman chris@theputnamstandard.com

Hurricane and Winfield traded blows all night before the Redskins finally pulled out a twopoint victory that wasn’t secure until a final desperation shot bounced off the back iron. The matchup – the first of at least two this season – featured six ties and six lead changes. Winfield pushed its margin to 10 points at the start of the second quarter when Toby Show scored, while Hurricane’s largest lead was seven points when Ace Estep hit a 3-pointer with just more than a minute to play. When all was said and done on Dec. 28, the Redskins improved to 3-1 and handed the Generals (5-1) their first loss, 6462. “Every time we play this game it’s awesome,” said Hurricane’s Trey Dawson, who scored all 10 of his points in the decisive second half. “We were all excited for this. We wanted to win, to show what we can do.” Henry Sorsaia led Hurricane with a game-high 20 points and 12 rebounds, while Garrett DeFries added 16 points. The desire was just as strong on the other side, however, as Bear Bellomy, Show and Zach Fisher all hit double figures as well. Bellomy led the way with 17 while Show had 15 and each had six rebounds. Fisher, the Generals’ leading scorer this season, scored 11 points in limited action due to foul trouble. “He sat a good bit, but that’s no excuse,” Winfield Coach Pat McGinnis said of the senior. “They played a little bit better than us tonight and deserved it. We didn’t knock down any shots in the third quarter. Fisher is really good at creating for us.” Fisher and Heath Diehl each picked up three fouls in the first half, playing havoc with the Generals’ rotation. When Show went out with a twisted ankle midway through the second quarter it left Winfield even shorter, and Hurricane went on a 9-0 run to turn a 26-20 deficit into a 29-26 lead. Show returned with 2:25 left in the half, however, and the Generals went on an 11-0 run of their own to take a 37-30 lead at halftime. Bellomy had seven of those points, including a 3pointer as the half ended. “I feel like we can compete with anyone in the state headto-head,” the junior said, a statement backed up by an early-season victory over Wheeling Park. Show said he’s happy to focus on aspects other than scoring. “I’m not big on hype or anything,” he said. “I go do my job –

Winfield’s Heath Diehl (14) attempts to pass Bear Bellomy (30) the ball while Trey Dawson (10), Garrett DeFries (15) and Jacob Lemmerman (0) look for a take away. The two teams fought hard before Hurricane pulled out a 64-62 win over Winfield.

Jacob Lemmerman, a senior playing his first season at Hurricane after three years at Winfield, went coast-to-coast for a layup at the buzzer, giving his new team a lead it never relinquished. “It means everything,” Lemmerman said of the victory. “Playing against my old school, guys I’ve been with my whole life. It was awesome.” Lemmerman also was injured in the game, banging his knee into the scorer’s table while pursuing a loose ball, but he said that wasn’t going to keep him from coming back. The entire game was physical, with the Redskins shooting 30 free throws and Winfield 13. Hurricane hit just 14 of its 30 attempts, continuing a seasonlong problem. “It’s a struggle for all of us,” Lemmerman said. “It’s mental. We’ve just got to practice more.” Those missed opportunities are one reason Winfield had a chance at the very end. Hurricane inbounded the ball with 2.9 seconds left, but the officials ruled the Redskins had possessed the ball and went back across midcourt. They awarded possession to the Generals at midcourt, and Bellomy got the ball with just 1.5 seconds left about 25 feet from the basket. “I just shot,” Bellomy said. “You can’t do much. I turned around and got an open shot.” The game was played before a packed house – with most fans

in their seats by halftime of the junior varsity game – and the battle won’t discourage anyone from attending the Jan. 25 rematch at Hurricane. “It’s always that intense,” Redskins Coach Lance Sutherland said. “You can’t ask for a better high school atmosphere. Our fans were great, our student section was fantastic.” McGinnis said both teams know the stakes, particularly with standouts Huntington and South Charleston in the Mountain State Athletic Conference. “This is the way it’s going to be all year,” he said. “The rest of us are fighting for places.”

Winfield’s Zach Fisher takes the ball to the basket while Hurricane’s Jacob Lemmerman (0) and Trey Dawson (10) tries to block his efforts during the final two minutes of the game.

Lady Generals squeak by Poca Dots By Justin Waybright justin@theputnamstandard.com

The Lady Dots and the Lady Generals triple-overtime basketball game ended the same way it began: a nail biter. Poca set the tone, ending the first period with 12 points, all from 3-point land. The scoreboard showed 12-7. Winfield edged its way back into the game during the second period with some solid jump shots and a 3-pointer by Haylea Roberson. A couple of fouls hurt the Lady Dots, and Winfield went into the half with a 27-23 lead. Poca's McKenzie Ball began the third period with a 3pointer, tying the score. By the period's end, Winfield remained on top at 30-28. Suspense filled the fourth period. Amped up defense on both sides kept the scoring low. With 25 seconds to go, the score was 35-35. Cameras flashed and the Winfield crowd cheered after two foul shots were made. But with fewer than eight seconds to go, Poca's Harley Hutchins darted toward the basket and tied the score at 37, forcing overtime. The defenses of Poca and Winfield stood strong during the period and allowed only a couple points apiece, forcing yet another overtime. Poca’s Ball fought hard to change the game with a beautiful 3-pointer, then Winfield's Katie Bryant answered back with a 3-point shot near the top of the key. The Lady Dots and Lady Generals ended the double overtime tied, forcing a third extra session. During the suspenseful third overtime, the girls stayed neck and neck. With 10.8 seconds to go, the scoreboard read 51-51. The crowd stood to its feet.

The pressure was on. With 4.2 seconds to go, Bryant drove in the paint and grabbed a layup, putting Winfield on top 53-51. During Poca's possession, Bailey Songer made one of her two foul shots, but it wasn't quite enough. Winfield edged Poca 54-52. "We started out slow, but we managed to pick up and work together," Bryant said. "I've never gone to three overtimes before - you got to condition yourself." The sophomore continued, "After I scored in the third overtime, I got really pumped. I knew we had to play hard defense. That did it." Winfield Coach Tim Toler agreed. "This was a rollercoaster ride - you get up two or three and think you got it, then they get a basket. You go from high to crashed low," he said. "We stepped up though, and so did Poca's girls." Toler recalled a pivotal moment during his last timeout with just seconds to go. "I looked at the girls and asked who wanted to score the game-winning basket," he said. "Katie just had that look in her eyes, so we designed the play for her, and she made it." Ball walked out of Poca's locker room, sweating and tired, but confident in her team's performance. "This was tough," the junior said. "It felt good to stay right there with them." Poca Coach Kenny Sayre was proud of his girls regardless of the final score. "On our offense, we stepped up. We could have done better boxing out, but the girls played hard and I love them to death," he said. "This game was good for the community and good for Putnam County."
