CLEANING UP PUTNAM COUNTY Members of the Poca High School wrestling team load tires in a driving rain during the annual Putnam County Clean-Up Saturday at Valley Park in Hurricane. Hundreds of people dropped off unwanted items, such as tires, appliances, computers, television and scrap metal, despite frequent hard rains. According to the National Weather Service, nearly a half inch of rain fell during one hour alone. Charity Fellure of the Putnam County Solid Waste Authority, said the event is held twice a year to allow people to get rid of hard-to-dispose of items. "You can't take some of these items to a landfill, so they wind up in open dumps. That's what we're trying to prevent," she said. The next clean-up event is slated for September.

Charleston attorney accused of fraudulent filings in Putnam divorce by Lawrence Smith

WINFIELD - A Charleston attorney -- who is a former circuit judge -- is accused of engaging in fraud and deception by filing judgments for recovery of fees she was denied in another attorney's divorce. Lyne Ranson and the Lyne Ranson Law Offices are named as co-defendants in an abuse of process lawsuit filed March 30 by Albert C. Dunn Jr. In his complaint filed in Putnam Circuit Court, Dunn, 48, a Fraziers Bottom resident who works in the Charleston office of Allen, Kopet and Associates, alleges Ranson, 58, twice fraudulently filed judgments in the Putnam County Clerk's Office to collect on fees she incurred in representing Dunn's ex-wife, Nancy. According to his suit, Albert filed for divorce from Nancy in February 2009. Their divorce was finalized two years later. Prior to that, Ranson on an unspecified date filed a motion with

VOTING FROM PAGE 1 is your voice, and I hope everyone makes their voice heard during this election.” In addition to early voting totals, the Secretary of State’s Office also announced voter registration totals for the 2012 primary election.

CLEAN-UP FROM PAGE 1 face painting and finger painting. Giveaways and raffles will also be held at the fair. “This is a good way for the health care community to interact with residents of Putnam County,” Donat said. Activities will be spread throughout Valley Park, including inside the Community Center and The Commons (formerly the Museum in the Community). For more information, contact

Putnam Family Law Judge William H. "Chip" Watkins III to grant her an award of $51,430.87 in attorneys fees. Records show on Aug. 30, 2010, Watkins granted Ranson's motion "without a response from [Albert] and without [Albert] being given a hearing to oppose the motion." Sometime thereafter, Albert appealed Watkins' ruling to circuit court which reversed Watkins' ruling on the attorneys fees, and remanded the case back to him. The suit does not specify if the appeal was assigned to O.C. "Hobby" Spaulding or Phillip M. Stowers. Nevertheless, Watkins held a remand hearing on Feb. 6, 2011, in which, among other things, Ranson's motion for attorneys fees was considered. According to the suit, upon conclusion of the hearing, Watkins opted to take matters under advisement in lieu of issuing a ruling. Despite the circuit court's ruling to the contrary, Ranson on Feb. 18 "improperly and unlaw-

fully" filed an abstract of judgment with the county clerk for her legal fees plus seven percent interest from Aug. 30, 2010. In his suit, Dunn maintains Ranson never informed him of the judgment. In fact, Albert avers it was Nancy who later informed him of the judgment when, after he agreed to sign over title to their home in Hurricane plus the two mortgages, that a title search by one of the lenders discovered it. Until he paid her the $51,430.87 in legal fees, Albert said Ranson refused to remove the judgment from the clerk's office. However, Ranson relented after Watkins ordered the judgment vacated. Records show that occurred on April 14, 2011. According to the suit, the terms of the Dunn's divorce was that along with refinancing the mortgages, Nancy was to pay Albert $12,500. Upon receiving the $12,500, Albert was to then pay Nancy $15,000 to cover Ranson's fees. After he signed over title, and Nancy closed the loan on refi-

nancing the mortgages, Albert says he tendered a check to her for $2,500 as payment in full on Ranson's fees. However, Nancy on an unspecified dated not only returned the $2,500 check, but also tendered one to Albert "totaling less than $12,500" asking him to "pay Ranson the $15,000 directly." After receiving the $15,000 from Albert, Ranson on Nov. 16 submitted an ex parte order to Watkins asking she be awarded $40,000 in legal fees from Dunn. In her proposed order, Albert says Ranson made two intentional misstatements. First, was her assertion that the "Circuit Court did not reverse the attorney fee award to counsel for Ms. Dunn" and "Mr. Dunn has not been relieved of the payment of attorney fees and costs." Second, was her claim that the reason for filing the second motion for attorneys fees was that Albert "is again filing bankruptcy regarding his payment of attorney fees and costs." In his suit, Albert avers he "has not filed for bankruptcy protec-

tion and has no intention to do so." According to the suit, Watkins on Dec. 16 granted Ranson's second motion for attorneys fees despite never holding a hearing on it, nor providing Albert a notice it was filed. Records show Ranson filed an abstract of judgment against Albert for $40,000 plus seven percent interest with the clerk's office on Jan. 18. In his suit, Dunn alleges Ranson's actions have caused him "emotional distress, annoyance, and inconvenience." Along with ones for abuse of process and fraud, Albert makes claims against Ranson, and her firm for slander of title, defamation, outrageous conduct, negligent and/or intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence. Dunn seeks unspecified damages, attorney fees and court costs. He is representing himself. The case is assigned to Senior Status Judge James O. Holliday.

Pliny man wins Pocahontas County Geocache Challenge SUBMITTED ARTICLE PLINY -- On a cold and rainy Monday night, Travis Burris set out from his home in Pliny for an adventure in the mountains of Pocahontas County, on the other side of the state. Burris has the distinction of winning the “First Finder” prize for the Nature’s Mountain Playground Geocache Challenge. By 8:15 a.m. on Tuesday, May 2, Burris was standing at the Pocahontas County Tourism office rapping at the front door. The office manager opened the front door and Burris told her he had just completed all 12 of the caches plus he had solved the Geocache puzzle. she exclaimed, “Wow,” “you’re the first one!” With that, Burris was issued what is commonly referred to as a first finder prize.

The prize is an authentic reproduction solid brass pocket compass from London England. The antique patina looks just like a 100-year-old antique, needs no maintenance and can be handled without fingerprints discoloring the brass. For true geocachers, this is a remarkable prize commented Burris. The prize was donated by Presidio Studios from Lewisburg. Geocachers work from a website where Geocache challenges come with GPS coordinates. Burris uncovered all 12 caches that each came with a clue to the puzzle. When he completed the challenge, he had 12 letters which made up the answer. By completing the entire

challenge, Burris now becomes eligible for a drawing that may win him a weekend trip in the state of West Virginia. Completion of the 12 caches also gets Burris a specially designed coin featuring a map of Pocahontas County. “The cache at Droop Mountain was the most difficult,” said Burris. “It took me three hours to find it. I actually left and went down the road to do another one. When I returned to Droop Mountain, I had better luck.” Burris spent about half of his time in the pouring rain, as Monday night saw a weather front move across the area with fierce lightening and about an inch of rain.” Burris began geocaching in 2009 and admits that this year he hasn’t been out to much be-

cause of his job. Says Burris, “I love the challenges. Especially seeing and learning along the way. History books just don't do enough, people need to get out and see the places and history in their state, and get a few finds as well.” The Pocahontas County Geocaching Challenge is on-going through the month of May. “We still have beautiful coins to give away plus people who finish the challenge are automatically entered to win a prize of overnight stay in the region, and the caches are still hidden in plain view,” said Sarah Shearer of the Pocahontas County Convention & Visitors Bureau. To find the 12 cache coordinates, search the words “Natures Mountain Playground” on

the website. Burris states “Geocaching gives me a chance to get out and enjoy the beautiful state and historic Pocahontas county while having some fun at the same time.” Shearer of the Pocahontas County Tourism Office tells us “Travelers with GPS units have taken tourism and vacationing to a new level. The appeal here is a bit of tech coupled with an appeal for historical exploration and discovery, and it provides a way for the modern traveler to transform a casual getaway into a vacation of mystery and intrigue.” For more information on the Nature’s Mountain Playground Geocache Challenge, you can call Sarah at 800-336-7009 or email at

Willie Nelson to play the Clay Center Thursday SUBMITTED ARTICLE CHARLESTON – A capacity crowd will experience the unmistakable sound of one of the most recognizable outlaws in American music history as Willie Nelson takes the Clay Center stage for the second time Thursday, May 10 at 8 p.m. Fans will journey through decades of standard hits like “On the Road Again,” “Always On My Mind” and “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” in an unforgettable performance from this iconic living legend. Clay Center President and CEO Judy Wellington said the

success of Nelson’s previous performance prompted the Center to look at him bringing him back to Charleston. “Willie’s 2008 concert was one of the most impressive performances we’ve ever had at the Center,” she said. “People still talk about what an amazing show it was, so we jumped at the chance to get him again.” Wellington said the Center rarely books artists more than once, but exceptions are made for performers that the public ask to see. “We like to bring in new acts and provide a variety of enter-

tainment for the area, so we don’t often book performers twice,” she said. “Our most important goal is giving the people what they want, however, and this show’s quick sell-out is proof that they wanted to see Willie Nelson again.” The only other artists to play the Clay Center Presents series more than once are Tony Bennett, Harry Connick, Jr., Naturally 7 and The Capitol Steps.
