Farmers’ Market selected for Pilot Program

New fresh seafood store opens in Scott Depot By Jack Bailey

SUBMITTED ARTICLE HURRICANE -- The Putnam Farmers’ Market is one of 10 West Virginia farmers markets to be selected for a Farmers Market Training Network Pilot Program for the 2012-2013 market seasons. During the two years, members will receive training, networking opportunities and technical assistance, which will help strengthen their viability and vendors’ income-earning capacity. The market will receive assistance from a qualified consultant on a topic of their choosing, and will be eligible to apply for a mini-grant of up to $1,000 to address specific needs. The market was selected by a competitive process for the program, which was developed through the West Virginia Food & Farm Coalition, the West Virginia Community Development Hub and the WVU Extension Service, with funding coming from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation. Market members said they are expecting to gain valuable resources through this experience, which will help the market build relationships with other West Virginia farmers markets, so they can share knowledge and continue to work together on collective marketing strategies. The Putnam Farmers’ Market, located in Hurricane City Park, is open May through October on Tuesdays from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. For more information visit, www.putnamfarmersmarket.we ebly.com.

SCOTT DEPOT – World of Seafood, a new fresh seafood store located in Scott Depot, held its grand opening celebration on Thursday, June 14. Dozens of local business and civic leaders turned out to help celebrate the grand opening of the fresh seafood store, which actually opened to the public May 4. The new store is family owned and operated said Lelah Nelson, who along with her husband, Joe, son Chris, and daughter, Beth Gilson, began planning the new venture last fall. Nelson, who is a native of Huntington, said that they knew that both Huntington and Charleston had good, quality seafood stores, but there was nothing in between. “Putnam County is a growing area and we knew there was no access to good seafood here so we saw that as an opportunity,” Nelson said. The seafood that is available at World of Seafood is flown in fresh three days a week from Hawaii from the Honolulu Fish Co., Nelson said. The fish is fresh caught

The home will be the 149th built by the local organization

since its inception in 1988. “The creation of Habitat for Humanity of Kanawha and Putnam began in Putnam County in 1988, with our 25th anniversary upcoming we are excited that we will return to Putnam County to build home number 149,” said Ken Adams, Development Director, Habitat for Humanity of Kanawha and Putnam. “We realized early on that Putnam was being underserved and thanks to the strong efforts from our Putnam County Advisory Committee we’re here serving partner families once again.” Earlier this year, Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Shawn Means pledged that the group wants to build 10 homes in Putnam County by 2016. The organization is currently

accepting applications from Putnam County residents who fit the profile of a Habitat for Humanity homeowner.

St. Albans doctor pleads guilty to prescription fraud CHARLESTON – United States Attorney Booth Goodwin announced Friday that a former Kanawha County doctor pleaded guilty in federal court to violating federal drug control laws. Dr. William J. Casto, 55, currently of Ohio, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to obtain controlled

substances by misrepresentation, fraud, forgery, deception and subterfuge. “Sadly, this is our fifth case in recent months against doctors or pharmacists who broke prescription drug laws,” said Goodwin. “Doctors swear an oath to do no harm, so it’s especially tragic to

see these people fueling our region’s worst crime problem. I hope these cases send a message: There are consequences if you abuse your prescription power.” Casto admitted that from January 2006 through December 30, 2009, he illegally wrote prescrip-

tions for the powerful painkillers hydrocodone and oxycodone totaling approximately 7,020 pills, and prescriptions for the antianxiety drug alprazolam, also known as “Xanax,” totaling approximately ,3810 pills. Casto had a medical practice in St. Albans at the time. Casto wrote many of the prescriptions to an individual identified in his plea agreement as S.S., with whom he previously had a sexual relationship. He also wrote prescriptions for other people at S.S.’s request, even though they were not his patients and he did not examine them. Casto faces up to four years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced on Sept. 24, 2012 by United States District Judge Thomas E. Johnston. This case is being prosecuted

as part of an ongoing effort led by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of West Virginia to combat the illicit sale and misuse of prescription drugs. The U.S. Attorney’s Office, joined by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to aggressively pursuing and shutting down illegal pill trafficking, eliminating open air drug markets, and curtailing the spread of opiate painkillers in communities across the Southern District. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General, andthe Drug Enforcement Administration conducted the investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Steven Loew is in charge of the prosecution.
