Study: 1 in 3 W.Va. homes does not have a computer By Eric Eyre - The Charleston Gazette CHARLESTON — West Virginia's push to expand highspeed Internet might be more complicated than making broadband service available by stringing copper wire or fiber on poles to people's homes. A new federal study shows slightly more than 35 percent of West Virginia households don't own a computer -- the secondlowest ranking of any state in the survey. The low computer ownership numbers help explain why many West Virginians don't sign up for high-speed Internet service, even where it's available. The study -- called "Exploring the Digital Nation" -- shows that 59 percent of West Virginia households subscribe to highspeed Internet. That's the eighthlowest Internet adoption rate among the 50 states, although West Virginia's ranking has improved from past years. "The report is clearly, in my opinion, a report on age groups and their habits as much as it is

on the subject of adoption rates," said Lee Fisher, who serves on the West Virginia Broadband Deployment Council. "So in those states where an aging population, like in West Virginia, is an issue, I don't believe you will ever have the adoption rates that people seem to shoot for until the demographic changes." Nationally, 70 percent of homes are hooked up to the Internet. "Even with our improved 'take rate' up in the 60-percent range, we are still way behind most of the country," said Dan O'Hanlon, chairman of the Broadband Deployment Council The study by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration cited several reasons why people don't sign up for Internet service: lack of interest; it's too expensive; and they don't have a computer. Mississippi had 35.5 percent of homes without computers, the lowest ownership rate in the nation, followed by West Virginia's at 35.4 percent. By contrast, 85 percent of homes have comput-

ers in Washington state, the highest percentage in the nation, according to the study. To increase computer ownership, O'Hanlon suggested the state work with nonprofit groups, such as Mission West Virginia, that provide refurbished computers to homes that don't have them. "The report actually shows us there are things the Broadband Council can do to raise our rate of broadband use in West Virginia," he said. Frontier Communications, West Virginia's largest broadband provider, has spent tens of millions of dollars in recent years to make high-speed Internet available across the state. West Virginia also received a $126.3 million grant to extend high-speed fiber to public facilities, though homes and business haven't been included in the project. The Broadband Deployment Council distributed $2 million last year for projects designed to bring wireless Internet to homes in rural communities.

The council turned down a handful of "demand promotion" projects intended to increase the number of people who subscribe to high-speed Internet. At the time, state law required the Broadband Deployment Council to award money for such projects in remote areas without Internet service. Council members said it didn't make sense to spur people to sign up for broadband if the service wasn't available. State lawmakers have since passed a bill that allows the broadband council to distribute money for projects that increase the demand for broadband anywhere in West Virginia. Fisher said state leaders must do more to promote the use of broadband technology "as an economic development tool." "Until West Virginia finds this person or group of persons to not only talk about it every day and fund it every year, I don't think West Virginia will ever be at the top of any of these surveys," said Fisher. The federal report, which ex-

amined U.S. Census data, also details how and why people go online. The report found that 34 percent of Internet users searched for jobs, while 35 percent shopped for health insurance plans. About a third of Internet users ages 25 to 44 went online for news, compared to 8 percent of users 65 and older. The report found almost all people who used the Internet at home did so with a high-speed broadband connection. In West Virginia, 3 percent of Internet users still had dial-up connections through phones -- the thirdhighest rate among the 50 states, according to the study. "The data show that Americans depend on the Internet use to engage in a wide range of activities," said Lawrence Strickling, U.S. assistant secretary of communications, in a release. "It underscores the need for us to continue our efforts to ensure all Americans have access to broadband." Reach Eric Eyre at or 304348-4869.

WeeklyDevotional By Mary Jane “FLOURSHING GARDENS” Thought for the week: Built ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them. Jeremiah; 29:5. (KJV) A few weeks past, I wrote an article about how I thought this year’s Spring season would be so lush and green, so far it’s coming true. God has sent tornados and storms, flash floods and fires to many states - and in various areas of our own state too. Still, there has been enough sunshine, right after the rains that most people who have gardens, are just gloriously, flourishing. Just take a country drive and see for yourself, or it may even be your neighbor’s backyard. Not only gardens, but also the grass and weeds, many yards grow faster than others. Some of our high school Future Farmers of America chapters are growing food for school lunch programs. Efforts throughout the state are increasing the farm-toschool food programs by growing

gardens. These fresh vegetables benefit various state programs. In Morgantown, WV seven minimum and medium security prisons will be planting on small prison-owned plots, gardens which will supply fresh vegetables to Mountaineer Food Bank in Gassaway WV. Mountaineer serves 48 of the 55 counties, distributing food to local pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, youth programs, day care centers, senior programs, and after school nutrition programs. Harvest Now is a website you can go to showing astonishing numbers, such as 100% the amount of hunger we could eliminate if we all gave a little extra by growing a garden to donate. It started in the state of Connecticut in 2008. I made me gardens and orchards, and I planted trees in them of all kinds of fruits. Ecclesiastes 2:5. So, if God blesses you with an abundant vegetable garden this

The Putnam Standard year, you might want to think about sharing with your neighbors and friends who are not able to have a garden - or donate any excess vegetables to the senior citizens in our area for their daily lunch program. God will return you’re giving, back twofold to you, in another way, that’s how it works. A gardener’s poem …… by Sudie Stuart Hager, “HE KNOWS NO WINTER’’ He knows no winter, he who loves the soil; For, stormy days, when he is free from toil, He plans his summer crops, selects his seeds From bright paged catalogues for garden needs, When looking out upon frostsilvered fields, He visualizes autumns golden yields, He sees in snow and sleet and rain, Precious moisture for his early grain, He hears spring heralds in the storms turmoil, He knows no winter, He who loves the soil. Prayer: Our Father in heaven thank you for the rain, and sun, and seeds, to grow our gardens, just another one of your blessings to us. Amen.

The Skinny: July 23, 2013 Tri-County YMCA is partnering with The Putnam Standard to bring its readers “The Skinny”, a weekly column that focuses on healthy living. Each week will provide tips and news to readers on staying fit both mentally and physically.We hope you enjoy getting “The Skinny” each week! Exercise is important at any age for many reasons. However, seniors can gain additional benefits from having a regular exercise plan. Exercise helps with mobility, maintaining muscle mass and even helping the brain work better. The benefits of starting and maintaining a regular exercise plan for seniors are numerous and here are a few important tips to remember: Make sure to consult a doctor

before starting an exercise program. Talk to the doctor about the type of exercise plan and any medical issues that could be a factor. All health considerations need to be discussed with a doctor before starting an exercise regimen because certain health issues could limit participation in activities and classes. Have goals in mind. For example, 30 minutes of activity 3 days per week for a few weeks. These goals can be adjusted as ability levels increase. It is also rewarding to meet goals that are set and be able to set new goals in the future. Set a schedule. Having a schedule that can regularly be followed is important so that participation can be on a regular basis. Be sure to include enough time for regu-

lar breaks during exercise classes or sessions. Exercise can be a very social activity so when making a schedule include time to visit with friends. Stay hydrated. Take water to drink in regular intervals. It is important to hydrate before, during and after exercise. Diet is just as important as exercise. It’s not going to make much sense to make the effort to exercise but have poor eating habits so make healthy choices. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and don’t skip meals. Include 100% whole grain breads and fiber rich foods. The key is portion control – use a smaller glass, bowl or plate and remember that cooking and preparing food at home puts you in control of what you are eating. Take time to exercise the mind as well. Intellectual stimulation is vital and this can be done through conversations over a cup of coffee, trips to museums or libraries, dining out with family or friends and even during exercise sessions. The key is to keep it active. In the long run, your body and mind will thank you. 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 304-757-0016or visit us online at

Courtesy photo The office I visited was Health Source in South Charleston where I watched my dad receive treatment from Dr. Jennifer Bulger, his chiropractor and a former athlete herself. I try to get my dad to stretch more before he runs, and I asked Dr. Bulger why that was so important for athletes. “It helps by loosening the muscles, but there is a right and wrong way to go about it,” she said. “Muscles should be warmed up before stretching, which goes against previous techniques.” Runners or soccer players like me should run in place or do an easy lap before putting stress on their muscles. I have been doing Yoga three months. Dr Bulger is a firm believer in that type of exercise for injury prevention. “Besides being a great stress reliever, the deep breathing that Yoga teaches us helps get more

Earlier I wrote that my Dad has been getting treatment from a physical therapist (PT) for his leg, and Dr. Bulger said, “PT’s work a lot on muscle, so they focus in on

practor like me can do two things - address the muscle component of the injury like a PT, but they also address the structural component (bones) as well. We see if the bones were out of alignment, which then pulled on the muscle, which caused the injury in the first place.” Being a young athlete, I asked Dr. Bulger why it was so important for me to have a good stretching routine. “Young athletes need to know how to get their muscles in shape to prevent injuries and to fully compete and perform at 100 percent,” she said. “You are never too young to learn that your muscles need to be loose, to be strong - their muscles need to be strong to hold their bones in place.” I know it’s better when I stretch before a practice or event, and I hope you use this information to help prevent further injuries.

Velma’sView By Velma Kitchens Butcher Hollow Kentucky One Saturday my husband and I, along with my sister and Mom, went to Butcher Hollow Kentucky to visit Loretta Lynn’s home place. I had been past the sign on Route 23 but did not stop. We stopped in Paintsville at the McDonalds for lunch and then went on to Van Lear which is not far. As Loretta Lynn said a” holler”, not a hollow. We turned on a paved one lane road and went very slow as dogs were in the middle of the road and would just barely move for our vehicle as we approached the store where we had to buy tickets. The tickets did not cost very much and we waited on our tour guide. We drove up the “holler” and past the one-room schoolhouse where Loretta and her brothers and sisters attended school. We drove on past the school and several other buildings and came to a deadend. We looked over across a small stream and saw the house Loretta was born and raised in. Of course, it has had some work on it so the public can go inside and see the things there, but it looked just like the house in the movie, Coal Miner’s Daughter. After a bit a man came and introduced himself to us and we found out it was Loretta’s brother Herman Webb. He was so nice and polite as he took us on a tour of the house and told us the stories of his childhood with Loretta. He said in all the years since she left she only has brought one person to the house with her when she came to visit and that person was Cheryl Ladd. I can't remember why she came with her but that was a long time ago. Herman did tell us that Loretta comes occasionally to visit without warning if she is passing by. We sure was hoping she would stop by that day. My mom and sister have seen her perform many times but I have not. After the tour of the house, we went down to the general store that Herman and his family run and talked to the nice people there. Loretta's twin daughters come and visit frequently their cousins and I met the cousin behind the counter. All of her relatives I met were common people and I learned a lot about Butcher Holler. I call them hollers and not hollows. If you do ever want a day trip Butcher Hollow is the place to go and learn some history. The articles in the house are exactly the way they were when Loretta lived there. Loretta Lynn now makes her home in Hurricane Mills Tennessee where I have been also. On our way back from San Antonio, Texas we stopped there as it was closer than Graceland in Memphis. And again another story and I will write about that one. I never thought I would be back to Texas again after our trip my husband and I took in 1979 across the country to Colorado. And again, another story.

A new crayfish fly for the streams

David Payne Sr. Column by David Payne Sr.

One of my pet peeves is fishing flies that fall apart when you fish with them. I've had several that do and it seems such a waste that so much time and effort is wasted on a fly that only lasts a few casts. The traditional way of tying flies is to start with a thread body (wrapping thread around the hook), and then tie the fly as you go with wrapped thread. Only at the end do you put a dab of rubber cement on the head as you tie off the thread there. If you are an expert tier, I suppose, your flies should be able to stay together if you tie them this way. I however, use Super Glue gel. I

start with a small amount on the hook before I make my first thread wraps. I also add a dab here and there periodically. If it's a dry fly, I'll use very small, strategically-placed amounts. If it's a streamer, I'll use the glue quite liberally and when liberally-applied, superglue and thread, after drying, make a strong combination similar to Fiberglas. I came up with an interesting and fairly easy-tie crayfish (I always called them crawdads) pattern. I had the idea while tying John Tertuliani's crayfish imitation (which was discussed in my column a few weeks ago). You may recall that the crayfish is simply a wooly bugger with eyes at the rear of the hook. Thus, when retrieved, it imitates a crayfish as they swim – backwards. When you are retrieving a crayfish fly, think of how you retrieve a jig – up in an arc, then it falls sharply – because a jig mimics the movement of a fleeing crayfish. A normal streamer fly won't fall fast enough, so John wraps his hook with electrical solder – the unheated solder wire is just wrapped around the hook then covered with thread. I thought, if all this solder weight were concentrated in the right place, on the back side of the shank, the crayfish fly would

The Payne Craw is retrieved with the hook up to reduce snags. The tip of the hackle feather near the hook eye simulates movement of the crayfish tail and the hackle in the middle simulates movement of the crayfish’s legs. move through the water with the sharp end of the hook up, thus reducing snags. The challenge is to get the weight to stay on the back side of the shank and move around on the hook. If you use some Super Glue gel with your thread, you can make a very stout and secure body. You obviously would not want to use a piece of acid-core solder. What I use is some electrical solder I had laying around. I measured the diameter with a pair of vernier calipers. It's 1/16 inch (2mm) in diameter – obviously much thicker than the hook is. I've tried various hooks for this

and found that long shank hooks make the best imitation. On a No. 10 Aberdeen hook, I started with an application of the glue before making my thread body with a red, metallic Kreinik thread then I tied some marabou with a few strands of the red, metallic thread for a “tail,” as you would for a wooly bugger. Remember the tail of the fly is the front of the crayfish I cut a piece of solder so that it was half as long as the shank of the hook. With a pair of pliers, I crushed the solder lengthwise so that it had a flat side to lay on the hook. Then I tied it onto the back

side of the hook shank (the top of the hook as it sits in the vice). I used quite a bit of glue for this. After wrapping the solder and hook shank completely with the red thread, I tied on a pair of small beads for eyes. John uses a short piece of monofilament line for his. He uses heat to melt the line at the ends to make a stopper so the beads won't slide off. I used a slightly longer piece of line. First, using glue and thread, I secured one end of the line to the body then wrapped the red, metallic thread until I got it about where I wanted the eye to be. I put both beads on the line, positioned them where the eyes should be, then (using no glue this time) I tied off the other end of the monofilament line with thread wraps. I repositioned the eyes and tied them off with thread wraps and glue. Using a pair of pliers, I pulled the monofilament snug, clipped the line and secured the end with glue and thread wraps. I made a few wraps with a saddle hackle around the middle of the fly. I used the tip of the hackle feather to make a tail for the crayfish. Kreinik thread by the way is made in Parkersburg, WV. That's one of several reasons I like to use it. You can find some of the thread at West Virginia Hobby and Crafts in Teays Valley.

Outdoors Roundup The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources has announced the winners of the 2012 Big Buck Contest: The contest is sponsored by the DNR, Izaak Walton League of West Virginia, West Virginia Bowhunters Association, West Virginia Muzzeloaders' Association, West Virginia PhysicallyChallenged Advisory Board and Toyota. Michael Taylor of Jumping Branch won the gun category with a 15-point buck he harvested in Summers County. The buck scored 165 5/8. For the muzzeloader category,

William Crothers II of Mineral Wells won with a 14-point Wirt County buck that scored 173 0/8. The winner of the typical bow category was Roger Maynard of Williamson with a 15-point buck from Mingo County that scored 170 1/8. The non-typical winner was Daniel Light from Boomer with a 17-point Fayette County buck that scored 195 0/8. Daniel's buck ranks No. 4 among the alltime buck scores in West Virginia. I'm very glad we don't have to hunt with the crocs: four Australian hunters were tracking pigs with their dogs near Darwin, Australia. One of the dogs caught a

pig in a river and one of the hunters (who was wearing a GoPro camera), waded in to pull them out. The other hunters stood on lookout for approaching crocodiles, but one was apparently already there beneath the water. Suddenly, a 14-foot crocodile exploded from the water and latched onto the dog with its jaws. The hunter barely escaped as the crocodile thrashed wildly. The hunters did not want to be identified and had a friend speak to the news media on their behalf. “It took the dog in one bite,” the friend said. “It was probably the best dog he'll ever have.” A couple of interesting reads

you might want to try this summer were written by U.S. presidents: “Fishing for Fun,” by Herbert Hoover and “Fishing and Shooting Sketches” by Grover Cleveland. They are two vastly different books. Hoover, whom everyone except fly-fishing elitists would consider him something of a flyfishing elitist, chops his book full of quotable lines, such as “all men are equal before fish.” Cleveland spent more time hunting and fishing than even Theodore Roosevelt did. He fished nearly every day, rain or shine, winter or summer. There was nothing elitist about any of Cleveland's attitudes – the small-

mouth bass was his favorite fish. If you're setting out trail cameras early in preparation for deer season, that's a good thing, but be careful not to put too much pressure on the deer. Big bucks don't like pressure whether you are out with a gun, bow or just checking on a camera. Try to avoid bedding areas and check on your cameras in the middle of the day, if possible. France wants to cull its wolf population, but will need some American hunters to do it. Wolves are a protected species in France, but have been causing significant livestock damage in some areas. French officials have organized cull hunts with no luck. For example, one hunt was organized with 150 hunters and a goal of harvesting 22 wolves. They harvested exactly zero wolves. Problem is, French officials say, nobody there knows how to hunt wolves, despite the fact wolf hunting was once a prestigious sport of the privileged in France. French officials are discussing bringing in expert hunters from the United States and Canada.

Sites Announced for West Virginia Tour of Smithsonian Exhibit on Sports CHARLESTON - The West Virginia Humanities Council is sponsoring a state tour of the new Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibit Hometown Teams. West Virginia is a debut state for the exhibit beginning February 1, 2014. The exhibit examines the role of sports in American culture - past and present. “Sports are a big part of what we do and who we are. Our love of sports begins in our hometowns. Hometown sports can be more than just games, they can become cultural touchstones with the ability to unite us and shape our values,” according to Robbie Davis, project director with the Smithsonian Institution.

The six West Virginia sites selected to host Hometown Teams and their tentative display dates are: Parkersburg Art Center, Parkersburg: February 1 – March 15 Buck Harless Community Center, Gilbert: March 22 – May 3 Preston County Sports Museum, Rowlesburg: May 11 – June 21 Randolph County Community Arts Center, Elkins: June 29 – August 9 Weirton Area Museum & Cultural Center, Weirton: August 17 – September 27 Morgantown History Museum, Morgantown: October 5 – November 15

Each of the selected sites applied to host the exhibit in response to a request for proposals at the end of 2012. The Humanities Council will provide funding to the sites to develop companion displays and supplemental programs that focus on their hometown teams. Displays might include uniforms, game programs, tickets, equipment, trophies, schedules and records, and team photographs, as well as lectures, films or discussions that examine the local sports tradition. Technical assistance is provided to the display sites by Humanities Council and Smithsonian staff. Marshall University history professor Dr. Kat D.

of year again!!! Last week, the fairgrounds in Eleanor came alive with a large carnival, livestock area, demolition derby, tractor pulls, and country, blue grass and gospel music. The sweltering heat did not stop the crowds from flooding to the annual Putnam County Fair. Camo and cowboy boots and hats covered thousands of adults and teens while smiles covered the faces of children. Good, down-home fun was had by more than 20,000 people last week. Here are pictures that provide a taste of some of that fun in action.

August Wonderful West Virginia magazine features: Battle of Droop Mountain; Cornstalk’s Campaign; Inspirational West Virginians; Mountain State Sailors; and Nature Lover’s Paradise SOUTH CHARLESTON - The August 2013 issue of Wonderful West Virginia, now on sale, continues its year-long celebration of the state’s sesquicentennial with articles and photos showing why West Virginia is and always has been a special place. The cover shows the Milky Way shining above the old steam plant at Cass Scenic Railroad State Park. This issue also features a photo gallery of Cass in celebration of the park’s 50th anniversary, courtesy of photographer Walter Scriptunas II. Articles include: The Battle of Droop Mountain Though its military leadership was a bit sketchy, the Union was victorious in this battle in the highlands of West Virginia. After the Confederates’ hasty retreat, the Union could forever lay claim to the newly formed state. Commemorating Cornstalk’s Campaign In addition to the 150th anniversary of statehood, 2013 marks another significant milestone: the 250th anniversary of

Cornstalk’s Campaign. This gifted American Indian leader’s successes in 1763 greatly influenced the course of history in the area later known as West Virginia. Inspirational West Virginians A prominent civil rights leader and a mother with an enormous heart are profiled. Come Sail Away… “Unbelievable joy” is what sailor Bob Richards experiences when he’s on the water catching a breeze or teaching and sharing his passion for sail boating with others. Nature Lover’s Paradise Imagine a peaceful escape amid old growth forest, fragrant flowerbeds, and a splashing stream. It all awaits you at the West Virginia Botanic Garden in Morgantown.
