Red House man sentenced for drug distribution

Animal Shelter construction could begin in August By Jack Bailey

STAFF REPORT RED HOUSE -- A Putnam County man has been sentenced to four years and three months in federal prison for illegally distributing prescription drugs. Kevin Caleb Barrett, 23, of Red House, previously pleaded guilty in April to aiding and abetting the distribution of oxymorphone, also known as “Opana.” He was sentenced on Monday, July 16. On Nov. 18, 2011, law enforcement officers with the Metropolitan Drug Enforcement Network Team (MDENT) utilized a confidential informant to make a controlled purchase of oxymorphone pills from the defendant. Barrett admitted that at the time, he served as the middleman to complete an illegal pill transaction between the informant and his known associate. The defendant further admitted that the informant picked him up in Dunbar and drove to a predetermined location in Huntington. The defendant admitted that when they arrived in Huntington, he met with Jacob Hatfield and gave Hatfield $1,250 in exchange for 25 40-milligram oxymorphone pills. Following the illegal transaction, Barrett returned to the vehicle and gave the pills to the informant. This case was prosecuted as part of an ongoing effort led by SEE SENTENCE ON PAGE 3

WINFIELD – Work could begin on the new Putnam County Animal Shelter by mid- to late-August, following a special meeting of the Putnam County Commission on Monday, July 16. The Monday meeting featured the first reading of an ordinance for financing of the Animal Shelter. A second reading of the financing ordinance and a public hearing on the ordinance will now take place at the Commission's meeting on Aug. 14 at 9 a.m. Following the Aug. 14 meeting, if the financing ordinance is approved, work on the new shelter could begin quickly, according to County Manager Brian Donat. “Following the second reading on Aug. 14 we hope to be able to close on financing fairly quickly and turn the contractor loose on the project,” Donat said. At the July 16 meeting, Donat also presented financing proposals for the project. Ohio Valley Bank offered the best fixed rate terms with 3.95 percent over 20 years or 4.2 percent over 30

Tomblin requests major disaster declaration STAFF REPORT CHARLESTON -- Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has requested a major disaster declaration from the federal government to assist with the ongoing recovery and repair efforts in West Virginia following the storms, which ripped through our state between June 29 and July 10. The disaster declaration includes Putnam County, among

several other counties in West Virginia. If granted, the major disaster declaration would provide infrastructure repair, in addition to the federal assistance the state is currently receiving to address imminent health and safety concerns. "With the vast majority of West Virginians having their power restored, our efforts are now fo-

cused on cleanup and repair. That is why I am requesting additional assistance from the federal government," said Tomblin. "If granted, this new declaration will provide financial assistance to our state agencies, counties, cities, towns and public service districts." The line of severe storms, with near hurricane force straightline winds, crossed West Virginia

June 29 creating unprecedented damage to electrical and telecommunications infrastructure, with power outages occurring in all 55 counties. The damage is still being assessed, but initial estimates show the financial losses, emergency response and repair costs could exceed millions of dollars. SEE DECLARATION ON PAGE 3

Manchin sends letter to Obama in support of disaster declaration STAFF REPORT WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Senator Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., today sent a letter to President Barack Obama in support of Governor Earl Ray Tomblin’s request for a declaration of a major disaster for West Virginia as a result of the severe storms that hit the state beginning on June 29, 2012. “Within four hours, the June 29th storm crossed the entire State from west to east, causing severe damage in all 55 counties. The straight-line, hurri-

cane-force winds that traversed West Virginia on June 29th resulted in unprecedented damage to my state’s electrical and telecommunications infrastructure. Nearly 680,000 out of 1,000,000 customers were without electricity, and suffered for days in scorching temperatures of nearly 100 degrees. “As a consequence of the June 29th storm, businesses, health care facilities, 9-1-1 centers, water and sewer systems, and multiple cell towers were rendered inoperative. With addi-

tional severe weather ensuing in the days immediately following the initial storm, local emergency supplies and first responders now find themselves stretched to the limit. Community resources are severely depleted and officials are faced with the daunting task of rebuilding local infrastructure. “The residents of my state were hit with a ferocious storm followed by days, and in some cases weeks, without electricity. With cell phone towers and power lines down, I am proud

to say that, yet again, West Virginians pulled together in the face of adversity … I urge you to give every appropriate consideration to Governor Earl Ray Tomblin’s request, and extend much-needed assistance to the communities in West Virginia that are struggling to re-build.” Following the late June storms, Manchin had the opportunity to join the West Virginia National Guard as they visited the impacted communities. He was able to speak directly

with the families who were affected to help meet their needs. He visited Lewisburg, Alderson, Rupert and Rainelle in Greenbrier County, as well as Glen Jean, Kincaid, Page, Montgomery, Gauley Bridge, Ansted and Lookout in Fayette County. If granted, the major disaster declaration would allow the federal government to assist with infrastructure repair. It would also provide federal dollars to address imminent health and safety concerns.

WINFIELD – The Ross Booth Memorial Bridge at Winfield will be closed overnight during the next few weeks to make repairs. The West Virginia Division of Highways (DOH) will be closing

the bridge from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly in order to make repairs. A few months ago, a vehicle hit the bridge and caused some damage to the structure according to the DOH. Work began on Monday, July 9, and continued through, Friday, July 13.

The bridge will not be closed overnight during the Putnam County Fair, which began this past weekend and continues through Sunday, July 21, at the Putnam County Fairgrounds in Eleanor. The bridge work will resume on Monday, July 23, and will con-

tinue through Friday, July 27. The following week, the bridge is also set to be closed nightly from Monday, July 30, through Friday, Aug. 3. DOH is suggesting that drivers on the Eleanor-Poca side of the River to stay on 62 to Nitro. On the Winfield side of the

Putnam Farmers’ Market to present its own version of ‘Chopped’ HURRICANE -- The Putnam Farmers' Market is proud to present their own version of "CHOPPED" at Hurricane City Park on Tuesday, July 24, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Chopped is a cooking competition show on the Food Network that's all about skill, speed and ingenuity where four up and coming chefs compete before a panel of three expert judges and take everyday items and turn them into an extraordinary three-course meal. Course by course, the chefs will be "chopped" from the com-

petition until only one winner remains. The Challenge? They have seconds to plan and 30 minutes to cook an amazing course with the basket of mystery ingredients given to them moments before the clock starts ticking. And the pressure doesn't stop there. Once they've completed their dish, they've got to survive the chopping block where our three judges are waiting to be wowed and not shy about voicing their culinary criticisms. Local contestants will participate at the Putnam Farmers’

Market using mystery ingredients and anything else the contestant wants to use. They will make the following dishes: an appetizer, main course, and dessert. There will be three judges judging each dish after the dish is prepared. The judges decide one of the contestant's dish does not meet the taste of their palette; the contestant gets "CHOPPED". The last contestant standing will be the winner of $100 and hold the title of Putnam Farmers Market very own "CHOPPED" winner.

Putnam Farmers’ Market Chopped Rules The contestant must use all ingredients in the mystery basket, you can use a little or a lot but each ingredient must be used in some way. The contestant may use any other ingredient from the pantry. Each contestant will have a few moments to consider the ingredients. The appetizer round will consist of 20 minutes cooking time followed by 10 minutes to judge and prepare for the next round. The Main Course round will

consist of 30 minutes cooking time followed by 10 minutes to judge and prepare for the next round. The Dessert round will consist of 30 minutes cooking time followed by 10 minutes to judge. The chefs must cook their dishes and complete three platings before time runs out.

Getting a frog's eye view of a fish's world

David Payne Sr. Column by David Payne Sr.

If you want to get what the Germans call “a frog's eye” view” of the unseen aquatic world, there are a lot of options available today. Fish sonar has been around for a long time, but in recent years anglers have been able to rig small underwater cameras with their lures. One friend of mine had a fishing float that had depth-finding sonar.

We live and fish in a very advanced world and I think if we rely on that stuff too much, we lose the ability to read water. Water reading has been an art as long as people have been fishing – and folks have been fishing with hooks since the caveman days. Izaak Walton, whoever it was who wrote the 15th Century fishing book Dame Juliana Berners gets credit for, and Thomas Barker had none of that stuff and they all caught plenty of fish. Reading any of this stuff – and the Berners book is 500 years old now – will help people catch fish. In some ways, even before we were using sonar to find German and Japanese ships in World War II, we had become less in tune with the water than our ancestors were and that's thanks to a piece of technology we take for granted as having been around forever – the fishing reel (more on that next

week). Walton wrote in the 1600s about water being a great mystery that one unraveled by piecing together its many clues – things the non-angler would hardly notice. Walton writes of clues in the current, the sky, the seasons, the air, the insect activity and you sort all of this information to answer the following: “where are the fish and what do they want to eat?” Once you formed your hypothesis, you tested it by fishing. If unsuccessful, you come up with another hypothesis and test that. Your best fishermen still do that. Some are quite good at it. I was covering the West Virginia Bass Festival for a newspaper a few years ago and met Roland Martin, who had been brought in to say stuff like “woo, son! That's some smallmouth!” at the weigh-ins. The river was high that year during the festival and anglers

were having little luck. So, I asked Roland what advice he would have for anglers and how he would fish it for competing. He glanced over his left shoulder and looked at the river for about four seconds. Then, he glanced over his right shoulder for a couple of seconds. In his day, he was one of the best tournament anglers of all time. I got to see that fishing genius in action. Without ever breaking eye contact with me, he described structure he saw up and down the river. His eyes brightened as his fishing strategy developed. He told me where he would make his casts, places he believed hidden logs might be lodged. His weapon-of-choice, of course, was a jig, which I think he would fish in his native – as he calls “Flaw-ida” - in anything from the bottom of the Everglades to a muddy hoofprint. Like Walton says, the two

questions you have to solve for a successful day of fishing is “where are the fish and what are they eating?” Understanding the current is the key to understanding fish. Debris floating by on the surface paints a picture of where forage is drifting underneath. Understanding the current is key as fish feed where they can eat the most food while expending the least amount of energy. In deep water, that is a place where slow and fast currents meet. In shallower water, the same principle applies only it is easier to see. Behind a submerged rock is the most obvious. They also might be near some sort of structure where forage fish are hiding despite the current. Just keep your eyes – and mind – open. Contact David Payne Sr. at

The Pliny and Fraziers Bottom community lost a wonderful handyman and mechanic who was always at his happiest helping friends and neighbors during

their time of need. Rex will be fondly remembered and missed by many. He was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed him. He was always just a phone call away. No matter how big or small the need, Rex would be right there to help. There was nothing that he wouldn't do to help others. He was not a man of many words, but he had a huge heart! He was an avid outdoorsman and he loved big Chevy trucks. He is survived by his wife, Lisa Lynn Carroll Wilcoxen; sons, Derrex Michael Wilcoxen and Dustin Ray Wilcoxen, both of Fraziers Bottom; and siblings, Lesley Wilcoxen and Rick Wilcoxen of Fraziers Bottom, Lonnie Wilcoxen of Hurricane, Gary Wilcoxen of Apple Grove, Alice Akers of Pliny, Velma Wroten of Point Pleasant and Brenda Foster of Fraziers Bottom.
