Cal Bailey Announces 2014 will be his Last Year Coaching West Virginia State INSTITUTE, WV – Legendary West Virginia State University (WVSU) baseball coach Cal Bailey has announced that the 2014 season will be his last at the helm of the Yellow Jackets. Bailey finished the 2013 season with more than 1,000 career victories, one of only seven coaches in NCAA Division II history to win that many games. Overall, heading into his final season, Bailey will carry a career record of 1,029 wins and only 466 losses. His career record in West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) play is 619-154 and under his leadership the Yellow

Jackets have won 17 conference championships. A native of Newton, W.Va. and a graduate of Spencer High School, Bailey first came to Institute as a baseball player. He was named to the All-WVIAC baseball team in 1966, and signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates to play professionally at the conclusion of that season. After playing professional baseball through the 1971 season, Bailey returned to work at WVSU in the school’s admissions office. He also resumed his classwork earning his bachelor’s degree from WVSU in 1972 before taking classes from

the W.Va. College of Graduate Studies and earning a master’s degree in 1974.

In 1978 Bailey was named the head coach of the Yellow Jackets and established WVSU as one of the premier baseball programs in the WVIAC. Bailey has been named WVIAC Coach of the Year on eight occasions and was selected the West Virginia College Coach of the Year in 1982. In 1999 and 2005 he was voted the North Atlantic Region Coach of the Year. He guided the Yellow Jackets to the NCAA Division II North Atlantic Regional Championship and a trip to the NCAA Division II World Series in 1999 SEE BAILEY ON PAGE 7

“FATHERS, DADS, POPS” Thought for the week: And, ye fathers provoke not your children to wrath; but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 (KJV) This coming Sunday, we honor Father’s Day. We all have memories that stand out in our minds, about our fathers. One of my favorite, Is after the supper meal, my Poppy, would say “jump in the truck, we’ll go up the road”. He worked for the gas company, and drove the company vehicle, which was a bright orange Columbia gas truck. We would visit aunts and uncles and then stop at the local store, where Mr. Ball would sit me on the store counter and give me candy or ice cream. I vowed when I grew up, I would marry Mr. Ball; he was not married, but there would have been about a 30 year age difference. In the late forty’s everybody

who had some land, grew tobacco to sell. A tobacco allotment it was called. So while driving past others tobacco crops, my Poppy would always comment on whose tobacco was doing the best, especially after a hard spring rain was as if he was an inspector, making sure all tobacco and gardens were growing well. All fathers have a tremendous job to do, providing for their families, it is a born instinct to take care of their loved ones, making sure they are housed, clothed and fed; there are many fathers who go without their needs to make sure their family comes first. Today it is the same for Mothers - the Jan. 2010 US. Labor statistics shows 64.2 million women receiving a paycheck, compared with 63.4 million men. Honor thy father and mother; which is the first commandant

The Putnam Standard with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. Ephesians 6; 2-3. The first observance of Father’s Day actually took place in Fairmont, WV. on July 5th 1908 - it was to celebrate the lives of the 210 fathers who lost their lives in the Monongahela mining disaster on Dec. 6th 1907. After many bills in congress, it was not until 1966 Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson designated the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day; then in 1972 president Richard Nixon signed it into law. What took so long to decide on a date so important as to honor our fathers? A Sunday school teacher, began her lesson with a question, “Boys and girls, what do we know about God?” A four year old hand, shot up into the air, “HE IS A ARTIST’’!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ‘’Really, how do you know?” The teacher asked. “YOU KNOW - OUR FATHER, WHO DOES ART IN HEAVEN.” Prayer: Our father, who art in heaven,Thank you, for being our HEAVENLY father, and bless all fathers wherever this day. Amen.

Hitting Them Straight

CHARLESTON - The game of golf is a popular sport in West Virginia. To grow the game, the West Virginia Golf Association (WVGA) has started reaching out to young golfers through The First Tee of West Virginia.

Bower said, “The young golfers from Putnam County can participate in the program at nearby Coonskin Park in Charleston and in Huntington at the YMCA Kennedy Center.” Since 2010, when The First Tee of West Virginia was first introduced in the state, the program has introduced golf and its values to more than 20,000 students through summer programming and the National Schools Programs.

If you just get one percent of those students excited about the game, there will be growth.” More than 80 golf courses offer access at reduced rates to participants.

it’s an individual sport, based on what you do as an individual when it comes to time and practice, more-so than a team sport, when you rely heavily on your teammates,” he said. The statewide program could always use volunteers. “The volunteer portion of the program is vital - we like to have a one-to-five ratio with volunteers to players during each session. There are plenty of opportunities to give back to the game at our various locations across the state,” Bower told me before showing me the type of equipment used in the program. For young people wanting to start playing golf, Bower suggested, “The first thing is to look into joining The First Tee program in their area. I started playing golf when I was 15 and wish the program was available when I started.” For more information on The First Tee of West Virginia program, go to and be prepared to “driver” them the next time on the course.

By Velma Kitchens Walkie Talkies I saw my aunt Claudia in the grocery store today, as I did the last time I saw her - and she said she did not remember giving me a cigarette. Well, we both are getting older, ha-ha, but I do remember. Anyway, she had 2 walkie talkies and I know she will remember the walkie talkies. On Buzzard Creek we made our own entertainment. We would play outside all day and then stay out and catch the lightening bugs until it was time to come inside. One sunny day on Buzzard Creek, Claudia and I took a walk as I was staying with her. I usually remember Buzzard Creek in the summer, but I have stayed in the winter also. Claudia and I took a walk down the road, she one direction and I in the other. She would talk to me and I would talk back to her. We decided one day to get under the electric wire which ran from pole to pole and did we ever hit pay dirt! We could hear the electric workers or whoever they were talking to each other and we had a connection to the outside world. I could have listened to them forever. We would talk but no one heard us, of course. We stayed out all afternoon talking and listening on the walkie talkies. Now we have cell phones, telephones and all these other gadgets and we say we are connected. We may be connected to the outside world but I really enjoyed the walkie talkies. My mom bought a police scanner once and we listened one Friday evening and I don't know how the police do their jobs with all the tom-foolery going on. The one call that stands out in my mind is when the police pulled over a girl and asked for her driver’s license but they were not hers. She was using someone else’s driver’s license. How bright is that? Anyway, Mom got rid of the scanner, really aggravating after awhile, but those walkie talkies sure were fun for a little girl one summer.

Fishing made in America

David Payne Sr. Column by David Payne Sr.

Look around next time you are shopping for tackle.

You'd be surprised just how much fishing tackle is made in the United States – I try to buy those when I can. Americans have designed much of the world's most innovative lures, many of which created amazing stories of entrepreneurship rivaled only by Finland's Lauri Rapala. One of those designers, Dan Galbincea, of Liberty Steel, Ohio, ran a charter boat service after returning home from World War II, where he served in the Army's 17th Airborne. He had a wife and six children, but quit his job to open a tackle shop and caught the walleye bug when he started fishing Lake Erie. At the time, most walleye fishermen were using spinners and worked to perfect one with a weight-forward design. That lure made him a leg-

end. Here's the story of how he named it: his wife Helen, wanted him to stay home, at least for once, instead of fishing on Lake Erie. With a bit of passive-aggressiveness, she said, "fine, go to your Erie, dearie." Today the Erie Dearie is the top-selling walleye lure in the United States and the lure is quite productive for other fish as well. The Erie Dearie still sells at a price competitive with those of Asian imports. Best of all, it's still made in America. RDLM LLC, the company that owns Erie Dearie, also owns Carlson tackle, maker of some well-known lures, such as Mr. Wiggly. Virtually everything the company offers, with a couple of exceptions (one is the snag-free sinker), is made in the United States.

There are several others who still make lures in the United States, including Mann's Bait Company and Voyager Tackle. Don't forget the smaller operations, either. One could even stock an entire tacklebox with lures made in West Virginia, such as the spinners and flies made by Joe's Flies in Harrison County. You'll find them in a lot of stores, even the bigger chain stores. Beware of wolves in sheep's clothing, especially with reels. I'm sure there are others, but one truly American reel that comes to mind is Newell. If you see a reel with "made in America" stamped on the handle, take it apart before you buy it and see if you see "China" anywhere inside. So, there's not a lot of reels made in American anymore. That doesn't mean it's hard to fish with

one. Most of the fishing reels made from the 1920s to 1960s were produced in great numbers, most companies made the same model for decades and fishing reels are something people generally keep for years. Thus, they typically – with some exceptions – aren't worth much. These old American reels, most of them much better built than anything available today, are fairly easy to find. You can often find them at yard sales, flea markets and antique shops. The best source, I believe, is EBay. That's where I bought my fly reel, an ambidextrous Pflueger Medalist fly reel from the 1940s. I have fished with that reel for more than 10 years. Contact writer David Payne at

cently, the first class of “wildlife detector dogs” and their handlers graduated from training in searching for protected species. In coming weeks, they will be stationed at key ports of entry around the country, searching for wildlife smuggled across U.S. borders. The four retrievers – named Viper, Butter, Lancer and Locket – have been trained as part of a national effort to stem the growing trade in threatened animal parts such as elephant ivory and rhino horn. Back to invasive species: The snakehead from Asia has infested a lot of U.S. waters. They are a very strange creature, they can actually come out of the water and walk to another body of water. The Marine Corps did its part to thin Virginia snakehead numbers by holding a snakehead tournament near Quantico, VA on June

7. That tournament has likely produced a world-record snakehead. Caleb Newton caught a 17pound, 6-ounce snakehead from the Potomac River tributary near Ashland, Va. He landed the fish into his boat Saturday using 15pound test line and a light rod. The current International Game Fish Association world record snakehead is a Godzilla-sized 17pound, 4-ounce beast caught in Japan in 2004. Newton, 27, said the fish was so large it barely fit into his ice chest. If you want to see one up close, you can actually buy them in a jar at the Asian supermarket in South Charleston, about a block from Gorby's Music (and on the same street). I'm not making this up. The snakeheads are dead, of course, and packed in a jar for consumption.

Outdoors Roundup From the recently-concluded WestVirginia Spring Gobbler season: Hunters in Putnam County harvested 221 birds, up from 196 the year before. Hunters in Cabell County harvested 132 birds, up three turkeys from the year before. The top 10 counties were Preston with a kill of 403, Mason (360), Harrison (355), Kanawha (327), Ritchie (325), Jackson (312), Greenbrier (309), Wood (308), McDowell (305) and Marshall (301). I've got a terrible case of poison ivy. What gives you that itchy rash is a substance called urishol oil that is found in the plants. My exposure came from weedeating the riverbank at my parents' house. If you wash the poison-ivy oil off with soap and water within a few minutes after exposure, you can usually prevent any problems.

There's a new West Virginia state record for rainbow trout. Tony Corbin, Gerrardstown, caught a 30.5-inch, 17.31-pound fish from a private pond in Berkeley County. He caught the record rainbow using a swimbait on 10pound test line. The previous weight record for rainbow trout was a 15.65-pound fish caught by Aaron Propps from another private pond in 2005. The state record length remains a 31.7-inch rainbow caught by John P. Arnett in 1993 at Stonecoal Lake. Minnesota is now using dogs to sniff out zebra mussels. Minnesota has about a bazillion lakes – and officials are trying to keep zebra mussels out. Zebra mussels are originally from streams in Russia, but have spread to North America in the bilge tanks of cargo vessels. They can also spread via smaller craft.

Unlike Minnesota, most of our waters are connected and you'll see zebra mussels in a lot of them. They are fairly small and very numerous, you'll find them in the Kanawha and Ohio rivers especially. Freshwater drum will eat them and apparently they eat quite a bit of them, but don't put much of a dent in the invasive-mussel population. If you fish for freshwater drum, you might notice red, irritated tissue around their rear ends. That's from passing half-digested zebra-mussel shells. The People's Republic of California is already using dogs to sniff out invasive species on boats and the Minnesota officials went there for training. Speaking of dogs: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is also using dogs to sniff out cargo coming from outside the country. Re-

Division of Natural Resources Warns: Don’t Feed the Bears! DNR reminds all WV residents that feeding black bears is a violation of state law, as well as a misguided disservice to our state animal, according to Colin Carpenter, black bear project leader for the DNR Wildlife Resources Section. “Some people will illegally set out food so they can get a closer look at this often secretive animal,” Carpenter said. “However, these actions often lead to the destruction of the bear. Bear movements are tied to food sources. Bears that roam in and around residential areas in search of food are less likely to stay if they do not find anything to eat.”

Capturing and moving bears that have become accustomed to humans is a costly and often ineffective way of addressing the problem, especially if it just moves the problem from one place to another. Human/bear interactions increase during the spring and summer for several reasons. Natural food sources are at their lowest point when bears leave their dens in the spring. Bears often spend several weeks feeding on green vegetation while continuing to lose weight. High-energy foods such as serviceberries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries do not become available until later in the

summer. In addition, the bear breeding season, which peaks from late June through July, puts many bears on the move. During the breeding season, males will cover large areas while searching for females. This is also the time of year when adult female bears will chase off their yearlings so that they may breed again. Human-related food sources are higher in calories and easier to obtain than natural foods. All bears, especially yearlings that are on their own for the first time, will take advantage of easy food sources. Bears will continue on their way if they do not find easy food. Bears quickly become habitu-

ated to handouts in the form of trash, bird seed, pet food and feed placed out for other animals, and lose their fear of humans. They then resort to raiding garbage, outdoor freezers, storage sheds, vehicles and other structures associated with people. “The unintentional feeding of black bears is something that can be prevented, “Carpenter said. “Garbage should be secured in a bear-proof facility and placed out for collection on the morning of pick-up, not the night before. Food scraps that produce large amounts of odor should be sealed in a plastic bag before being placed in the trash. Food scraps should not be

placed in a compost pile during the summer months. Residents should remove all outside pet food at night, and bird feeders should be taken down, cleaned, and stored until late fall to further discourage bears from feeding around human habitation. If you do not remove food attractants until after a bear has become a nuisance, you may have caused the death of that animal.” Feeding of any wildlife should be avoided for numerous reasons, including, but not limited to, disease transmission, increased predation, habitat destruction around the feeding site, ethical concerns, and the animal’s overall health.

Richard (Dick) Green Memorial Scholarship Winners Announced SUBMITTED ARTICLE AND PHOTOS On August 25, 2012 The State of West Virginia lost one of its most ardent soccer promoters and coach, Richard "Dick" Green. The Richard (Dick) Green Memorial Scholarship has been established to recognize Dick’s contributions by awarding scholarships to players who exemplify the values Dick both lived and coached. Dick served many years as a recreation league coach, a travel team coach and girl’s high school soccer team coach at Hurricane. After retiring, he remained active as the assistant coach for both Poca and Nitro High School Ladies Soccer Programs. Dick instilled in many young women character traits that will serve them the rest of their lives; i.e. hard work, sportsmanship, teamwork, and goal setting. He made hard work fun and passed to them his love of soccer each and every day. "You have to work hard to play hard. You have to play hard to win." The Richard "Dick" Green Memorial Scholarship recognizes young women that demonstrate their love of soccer and represent the values that Dick emphasized when coaching. The player(s), must be in good academic standing having a minimum overall GPA 3.0, played a minimum of three (3) consecutive high school seasons, and be from one of the three teams he coached (Hurri-

Music from the Soul By Justin Waybright

DUNBAR - The sound of prayer and guitar strumming penetrates the living room of a Dunbar home. The West Virginia Flat Picking Champion starts every morning this way. “This gets the day off to a good start,” he says with a smile. Matt Lindsey won the contest in Gandeeville, W. Va. in May. He was given state honors and a custommade acoustic from Craig Southern Guitars. During the past decade, the softspoken musician has competed in countless contests. But, for Lindsey, every competition and concert is more than a simple performance. “It’s a spiritual thing for me,” he explained. “I even fast for these things, and I feel God’s presence during these contests.” The father of five started pursuing guitar at 17, when he helped his friend Jimmy Rinick pass papers. Lindsey joined him on the paper route in exchange for lessons. The guitar player also sought guidance from Fret-N-Fiddle and Robin Kessinger. “I was a senior in high school when I took lessons there,” said Lindsey. “That’s when my taste went to acoustic.” He studied the acoustic greats: Doc Watson, Tony Rice and

Lindsey was hooked. “The tone of the acoustic guitar really gets me,” he said. “There’s just something about sitting behind an acoustic that I don’t get from an electric.” Through the years leading up to the state competition, Lindsey took

sician fused his love for God and music together as the guitarist for Maranatha Fellowship’s Praise Band. “You’re right there in the thick of things - you get to see people come to the altar,” Lindsey said. “There’s an anointing up there and sometimes I get caught up in it - it’s humbling - it’s not about me - I have to tune into what God’s doing.” During the past 12 years, success has followed the guitarist. Lindsey has a plethora of top-5 finishes in state and national competitions. In 1992, against 40 of the country’s best players, he achieved a 2nd place showing. Lindsey takes no credit for his achievements. “My guitar playing is a gift from God,” he said. The Lindsey Lawn Care business owner works hard at both his dayjob and his passion. During spring and summer, he practices more than two hours a day. In winter, when business is slower, Lindsey may strum and pluck his custom guitar for eight hours a day. It’s been a long road with speed bumps along the way, but the humble man looks toward the future with confidence. “Different seasons bring different things to me, and I’ve learned to enjoy them all to see what they may bring,” he said, looking up, toward the cross he plays in front of every Sunday.

Valley Park:Waves of Potential

Sliding into fun - Children race down the park’s waterslides. Photo by Justin Waybright

By Justin Waybright

HURRICANE - A siren echoes throughout Valley Park. Children and adults race to jump into roaring waves. More than 1,500 people splashed into Waves of Fun during the weekend, according to pool records. The sun reflected off of mammoth waves, shiny slides and

guests from across the Tri-State. On a recent Friday, with school still in session, children and adults packed the wave pool. It was a pleasing sight for Putnam County Parks and Recreation Director Scott Williamson. “People love these waves,” he said. “You can hear everyone yell when they come up, and people make a mad dash to the pool.” Jamie Wright, manager of the wave pool is seeing early success and the fruits of his labor grow.

Waves of people - Adults and children enjoy a 90-degree day at Waves of Fun. Recently, guests from across the Tri-State poured into the newly updated county attraction. Photo by Justin Waybright Wright and his staff have logged countless hours, overhauling the pool during the past few months. “We’ve already had bigger crowds this week, compared to last year at this time,” he said. “I’m looking forward to a great season.” Near the entrance of the revamped pool, Milton resident Tammy Lunsford enjoyed fun in the sun with her granddaughter

Rilynn. Lunsford loves having a unique attraction within driving distance of her home. “Everything is great,” she said. “We have nothing like this anywhere close.” Seeing families have fun is what drives Williamson’s vision for parks in Putnam County. As he looks at the crowded pool, determination fills his eyes. “I’d like to see this expand into

a true waterpark with lazy rivers, lap pools - maybe go-kart racing, an arcade and a Myrtle Beachstyle mini-golf course,” Williamson said. “We’ve started efforts to move that direction, and this is an ideal location to pursue this.” The parks’ visionary continued, “That would put Putnam County at the top of the list.”
