Storm Plows through County By Justin Waybright

By Christin Daugherty Some of the best relationships begin with friendships. Some of the best friendships end in all-out war. And sometimes there is a war zone right in the middle of our living rooms. Perhaps all we need sometimes is someone else’s perspective. Someone who is able to look at a situation with a clear head and an open mind. That’s where I come in. My name is Christin, and I am a mother, college graduate, exgirlfriend, daughter, bartender, sister, baby-momma…....let’s just stop right there for now and SEE CHRISTIN ON PAGE 7

PUTNAM COUNTY -- It was a chaotic scene across the region Tuesday (October 30) while heavy snow snapped power lines, split tree branches in-half and trapped thousands in the county with no electric and no way out of their homes. Residents struggled to combat the weather’s effects on their lives. But local police, EMS responders and firefighters were ready. These men and women met Monday morning to outline strategies to best serve county residents. “The big thing is to keep an eye on the storm,” said Putnam County Emergency Management Director Frank Chapman.

EMS responders get ready for a long night Monday. The 911 Communications Center in Putnam County received more than 600 calls through Tuesday afternoon. Photo by Justin Waybright. “We are getting equipment and supplies ready, and will be prioritizing calls.”

On Monday, he said people needed to prepare for at least 72 hours of storm-related weather.

“We want everyone to know it’s coming,” he said. Hours later it did. Chapman’s office scheduled extra personnel, activated the Emergency Operations Center and began the fight to save residents getting pounded by a storm that would be dubbed “Superstorm Sandy.” When night arrived, it brought wind gusts, snow and cold air, but EMS responders were prepared. EMS, law enforcement, DOH workers and firefighters fought throughout the night, responding to hundreds of 911 calls. The morning revealed snow-blanketed roads, broken trees, fallen power lines—all leading to a State of Emergency issued by Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin. SEE STORM ON PAGE 8

Redskins fall to undefeated Cabell Midland, 31-13 By Bishop Nash For The Putnam Standard

ONA -- The Hurricane Redskins were not able to stop the undefeated Cabell Midland Friday night, falling to the Knights 31-13 at Knights Field in Ona. “Hurricane played us well, I thought,” Salmons said, “We never got in a good rhythm and had a lot of penalties.” The final game of the regular reason was also Senior Night for the Knights, but being ranked No.1 in West Virginia secures home-field advantage for Midland until the state championships in Wheeling. “It's special, but at the same time it's not our last game,” Salmons said, “Now we're on borrowed time.” The loss does not necessarily spell the end of Hurricane's sea-

WV History Alive in Teays Valley By Justin Waybright

TEAYS VALLEY – West Teays Elementary students took a step into the past Oct. 26 at their annual Fall Festival. West Virginia history was alive as children learned about century-old cooking, hunting and basic survival. “They’re having a ball,” said Teays Kindergarten West Teacher Judy Hamilton. “I think the students love it and look forward to it. They get to learn things they wouldn’t from a book.” Hamilton’s class stood in line to get fire-cooked bacon, while learning about the roots of their W. Va. heritage. Hamilton said it is important to know state history. Her class of kindergarteners was eager to learn Appalachian history. “At this age they are like

• 1 teaspoon sugar • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch pieces • 3/4 cup milk

Directions 1. Melt the butter on the stovetop in a Dutch oven or other oven-safe sauté pan with high sides. Stir in the onion and celery, then cover the pan and cook them for 7 to 8 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add the flour, stirring for 1 to 2 minutes to lightly brown it. 2. Whisk the chicken stock into the pan. When it starts to thicken, whisk in the milk. Add the sage, thyme, chicken, and vegetables, continuing to stir until the mixture is heated through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. 3. Remove the pan from the stovetop and heat the oven to 375 F. Meanwhile, make the biscuit topping by combining the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the butter and use your fingertips to rub it into the dry ingredients. Add the milk and stir briskly, just until the dough pulls together. 4. Flour your work surface and turn the dough onto it. Using floured hands, knead the dough two or three times, then flatten it to about 1/2 inch thick. Using a small round cutter, cut the dough into biscuits and place as many as will fit, barely touching, on top of the filling. (You can bake any extras separately, on a lightly greased pie plate, for about 15 minutes.) 5. Bake the potpie until the biscuits are golden brown and the filling is bubbly, about 20 to 30 minutes. Then let it cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving it. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

We are drawing to the end of our series of articles on Figurative Language. There are just a few more forms I would like to cover for you; one of them is allegory. An allegory is a description or narrative having an underlying or second meaning. The second one is paradox, which is a situation or statement that contains incompatible or contradictory statements. Here are a few examples: 1. I knew that to die was life (paradox) 2. and from darkness 3. came things too beautiful 4. for daylight. (Lines 2-4 are an allegory, there is a second meaning there.)

Attorney General Darrell McGraw Warns Consumers of Hurricane Sandy’s Effects and Related Scams Hurricane Sandy and the related storm effects have caused major damage to homes and to infrastructure. Citizens can be left without power for extended periods of time. Governor Tomblin has declared a State of Emergency in West Virginia. With the emergency declaration, additional government services become readily available. Attorney General Darrell Mc-

Graw is issuing a warning to consumers to beware of those who will try to take advantage of West Virginia citizens. During State of Emergency conditions, scam artists are always out trying to take advantage of our citizens, specifically in small communities. They come around claiming to assist with repairs and other situations that arise from the emergency condition and end up preying

on those who are most vulnerable. Seniors are often victimized by traveling contractors who show up after major weather events, McGraw said. If you’ve been a victim of a scam or excessive or unjustified increases in pricing of essential goods and services during a State of Emergency, contact the Attorney General’s Toll-Free hotline at 1-800-368-8808.

Of these voters, 36,706 are registered in Putnam County. The county has 15,023 democrats and 15,026 republicans. There are 47 precincts across the county, according to W. Va. Secretary of State of records. In addition to choosing candidates, voters this year will choose if they want term limits for sher-

iffs, as listed on the WV Constitutional Amendment. If residents choose “For the amendment,” they will be voting to place no term limits on sheriffs. If they choose “Against the amendment,” they will be voting to keep the current two-term limits on sheriffs. “The [WV] Constitutional Amendment is on the ballot to give voters the choice to repeal the language in the constitution,” Wood said. Early voting ended Saturday.

PSC Rules on Mountaineer Gas Base Rates On October 31st, the Public Service Commission ordered an adjustment in the base rates charged by Mountaineer Gas allowing the company to increase its revenue by $6.265 million, or 2.54 percent. Mountaineer requested an increase of $12,187,218, or 4.9 percent. The Commission recently ordered a decrease in Mountaineer’s rate for recovering its purchased gas costs. Because of the concurrent decrease in Mountaineer’s Pur-

chased Gas Adjustment there will be a net decrease in the average monthly residential bills of approximately $5.24, or 8.3 percent. The natural gas utility’s base rate typically accounts for approximately one third of a customer’s gas bill and covers all the company’s expenses to deliver natural gas to its customers except for the cost of purchased gas. The base rate includes an allowance for a return on the company investment, costs of repair,

improvement and maintaining utility property, taxes, and depreciation. Mountaineer Gas serves approximately 218,000 customers in 49 West Virginia counties. More information may be obtained by accessing the Commission website,, and referencing Case Number 11-1627-G42T.

The number of voters stayed steady during rainy weather, just 24 hours before the winter storm blew through the county. Many new positions will be filled this year, and Putnam County Clerk Brian Wood said voters were eager to cast their ballots. Wood predicted 7,000 early voters would participate. “The sheriff and judge positions are two hot topics locally for this election,” he said. “The presidential election is also important to the voters.” Scott Depot resident Ron Miller waited in line to cast his ballot. Miller enjoyed the convenience early voting had to offer.

This story was told to me by an elderly veteran as we began talking about jobs and how we started on our very first job. Mr. Henry was in the military and was home on leave and he began working at Beard Mortuary in Huntington. This was in the early 1950’s. He went to work the very first day and his boss told him of a tragic event that had happened to a young woman who had just given birth to a baby boy. The woman’s husband had been in an auto accident and was killed. Beard Mortuary was in charge of the arrangements and the viewing was the next day, his second day on the job. He was told to take the company car and pick up the lady for the viewing of her husband. The next day Mr. Henry drove to an apartment building and found the lady who was living with her Mother as she had just given birth and there were complications during the delivery. Mr. Henry walked up many stairs to get to the apartment. The woman was grief stricken and was very small for someone who had just had a baby. She told him she would not be able to attend the viewing or the funeral as she could not go up or down stairs for several weeks. The woman was in tears. Mr. Henry told her not to worry and that he would CARRY her to the car and take her to the viewing. The woman and her mother were very thankful. Down the stairs he went. When the viewing was over he drove her home, picked her up and carried her up the stairs. He told her not to worry that he would be back to carry her down the stairs to the funeral. The funeral home told him his only concern for the next several days was to take care of that lady and nothing else. The day of the funeral Mr. Henry arrived, went up the stairs, went back down the stairs and took the woman to the funeral home where the service was held. He stayed by the lady’s side and helped in anyway he could. He said he felt so sad for her. After the funeral he drove her home, walked up the stairs carrying the young lady and said goodbye. He said he never saw her again, but heard she had remarried a very good man and lived in another state. As a young military man, Mr. Henry served his country but he also served someone in need. When I heard this story, I was so moved by his compassion. The funeral home was not thinking of money, but the concern was of the family of the man killed in the wreck. May we all have more compassion for those in need.

Putnam Farmers’ Market wraps up Season By Justin Waybright

HURRICANE—The Putnam Farmers’ Market ended its 4th season Oct. 27. Rain poured, but farmers still came out with their fresh produce, and a message: buy local. “It’s really important for people to get local foods,” said Putnam Farmers’ Market Manager Michael Null. “This is different than your grocery stores like WalMart, because here you can meet the farmer and ask questions.” And they are all local. Vendors must live within a 50mile radius of Winfield Courthouse to participate in the market. Null supports this rule, and believes it helps boost the local economy. “I think the market helps put money back into the community,” he said. “It thrives when we thrive.” Larry Foster, another long-time seller at the market, agreed. This Frazier’s Bottom farmer was happy to be part of the growing initiative to buy and sell locally. “This is better for Putnam,” he said. “I can be here in 15 minutes as opposed to markets in Barboursville.” During this year’s growing sea-

Honey from Paul Carbonneau’s Killer Bee Honey business. Carbonneau promotes his product, he says aids in cold and arthritis relief. son, Foster and other local farmers faced a challenge: the weather. The mixture of dry and wet conditions hindered their ability to grow the large quantities of produce they had in the past. “It was a good year, but the weather was rough,” he said. “For me it was dry, and I didn’t have as much as I usually do.” Paul Carbonneau, owner of Goodwater Farms in Hurricane, agreed. This Buff Creek farmer specializes in the sale of honey— a product he believes can improve the health of those who use it.

“I offer the community a valuable service,” the Hurricane bee farmer said. “I sell a local, raw honey that is good for the human body.” Carbonneau runs a business called Killer Bee Honey. He said the product he sells helps alleviate cold, arthritis and allergy symptoms. This farmer was happy to have his honey featured in this year’s market. He looks forward to being in the 2013 market.” “I am pleased with the way this year has gone,” he said. “Next year I will get an earlier start.”

chemicals,” the Putnam Farmers’ Market veteran said. They are organic, all-natural and very clean.” White helped start the market in 2009. She has watched it evolve into a thriving, local attraction. She, Carbonneau and Foster are excited about what next May has in store for them. To participate in the Putnam Farmers Market, call (304) 9241736. It is a one-time fee of $25 to sign up and $5 per day to sell.

The Putnam Standard REDSKINS FROM PAGE 1 “These kids are battle-tested,” Cabell Midland head coach Luke Salmons said, “So to go into the playoffs with that mindset is a pretty great thing.” The Redskins knew throwing Midland off their normal tempo early was key, and they did just that. After converting fourth down twice on the opening drive, junior quarterback Jon Hensley punched it in on a 7yard touchdown run capping off a nearly 6-and-a-half minute drive. The Knights fired back with their main weapon on the following drive when senior running back David Gaydosz ripped off a 33-yard burst in to score late in the first. Both teams burned enough time on offense for only one full drive per team in the first quarter. Senior kicker Chris Molina broke the tie by drilling a 39yard field goal for the Knights midway through the second. Midland's defense forced Hurricane to punt at their own 10, and the offense allowed senior running back Lowell Farley to dive in on a 1-yard touchdown run. Turnovers plagued the rest of the half for both teams. Hensley was intercepted by Midland's senior defensive back Stephen Matthews while Knights all-purpose back Kasey Thomas fumbled at midfield on the following drive. Senior Redskins kicker Michael Molina's 40-yard field goal attempt was blocked as time expired, and the Redskins trailed into halftime 7-17. Farley struck for his second touchdown early in the third on a 16-yard touchdown run, but the rhythm of both teams had already been disrupted. A punt by each team and the ejection of Midland senior offensive lineman Kurt Jones marred and already penalty-riddled contest.

Junior Redskins running back Zach Pate broke out on a 27yard TD run early in the fourth, and Midland quarterback Coy Petitt lost the snap to Hurricane on the next drive. The Knights defense stepped up and allowed the ball back into Gaydosz's hand who sealed the game on a 5-yard touch-

down run late in the quarter. Hensley was intercepted by Midland's Alex Childers in the endzone late allowing the Knights to burn the clock out to victory. “We've just got to keep working,” Salmons said, “The kids have to understand that it can end it one game.” As of Saturday, playoff pairings have not been announced for either team.

CHRISTIN FROM PAGE 1 say that I’m “well-rounded” and always being sought out for advice. I have always considered myself to be an “open book”, which may be why others find comfort in confiding in me. I like to think of my past, and all of my many, many, MANY mistakes as lessons learned, and hopefully, lessons that can be passed on to help others. The truth is – nobody’s perfect. Especially when life presents us with a challenge. When times are tough and emotions are high it’s almost impossible to “see the forest for the trees”. I have seen/experienced many different types of romantic and personal relationships throughout the years, and I’m confident that my trials and tribulations could possibly help you with yours.

Thought for the week: Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalm 33:12 (KJV) It’s that time of year again. Fall season for the pumpkins and time to elect a president for our country. So, you are thinking “What does this have in common?” Well, there are all sizes of pumpkins, all kinds of political promises. Which one would make the best jack-o-lantern, and which one is going to keep his word? Our United States has its free government system of deciding who it elects for mayor, governors, senators, and president as leader of the nation. While running especially for the presidential office, why so much bickering and dissension in debates? Do you think the average American citizen wants to hear all these past problems, blames and attacks of character on each opponent? I am sure, the majority of voting people, would rather hear from a person seeking the vote to lead this country in a manner on his honesty, improvement, and integrity; and it would be good to hear that he upheld what is still printed on our money, “In God We Trust”. We are the greatest country in the world, we are strong, and we are the first to take care of other troubled countries in time of need. But it seems like we have forgotten all our forefathers have taught us. I know there are many issues for each state to be considered, such as coal and gas in our own WV. What has happened to people, that we cannot agree on what is best for others? Has greed so overtaken us that we no longer care? The mind still has a conscience, and to be content with yourself, your soul will let you know this, any leader who holds a position should realize this. The federal government has the ability to change laws and enforce them but no matter what religious faith we have, in the Bible Isaiah 66:23 says – And it shall come to pass that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord. There are tracking devices to know where we are, and what we are doing, at all times. But government does not know what we are thinking, or what is in our heart. Only God, who created us, knows that. The Lord seeth not as man seeth, for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7. Let us always pray that God will continue to care for us, as the greatest nation on earth. Prayer: Our Father in heaven, forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, for thine is the kingdom and glory forever. Amen.

Hurricane Sandy in WV

The Putnam Standard

STORM FROM PAGE 1 By late Tuesday, 911 operators had received more than 600 calls. The call center typically sees about 100 calls per day, according to Chapman. More than 9,800 people were without power, according to Appalachian Power. “Ninety percent of the calls were fallen trees and power lines,” he said. “We knew this was coming, and we’ve learned lessons from the summer storm that helped us do well.” Thousands across the region were trapped in cold houses with no medicine, no food and no hope. But, help soon arrived for them. Lights from ambulances and fire engines flashed and flickered while EMS responders and firefighters worked together, rushing to open tree-blocked roads, small fires and car wrecks. At the Hurricane Fire Department, trucks raced out of the station to rescue residents from fallen trees and power lines. The bell inside the station rang loudly while emergency calls came in over the speakers. Brave men gathered in a huddle while Asst. Chief Dana Spade directed them. “It’s been a while since we’ve had something like this but we are prepared” said Spade. “It’s [the storm] overwhelming at first, but it should stabilize as it goes. Right now this heavy snow is a problem: it’s great for skiing, not for driving.” Seconds later, the volunteer firefighters geared up, jumped inside their fire engines -- lights flashing and sirens blaring. This group of men sped out of the station, responding to a vehicle wreck with a possible injury. Calls continued to come in regarding area drivers, who had

I-64 westbound is bare Tuesday morning after the aftermath of the winterstorm. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin declared a state of emergency in West Virginia on Monday to prepare residents for what has been dubbed: "Superstorm Sandy."

Fallen tree branches lined the sides of Stricklin Road in Hurricane. Neighborhood residents worked throughout the morning to cut and remove the debris.

The winterstorm sits over Teays Valley Tuesday morning. Visibility was limited.

The Hurricane Fire Department stayed busy while multiple calls flooded its station. Here, two volunteer firemen help residents evacuate their homes after wind, snow and fallen power lines leave more than 200,000 without power.

Photos by Justin Waybright slid into medians on local roads. More firemen braved the cold to help them. At 10:46 a.m. Hurricane firefighters Kyle Slate and Andrew Spade responded to a snow-covered Stricklin Road where a resident was stuck inside his home without power. Tree branches blanketed the sides of the slushy road leading up to the man’s

home. Neighbors had worked for three hours to clear fallen branches for drivers—the typical scene all across West Virginia. The two firemen helped a resident with disabilities to safety. Slate and Spade were cautious while they moved a man in his wheelchair down a slippery hill to his vehicle. The two firemen then went inside to help another person out of a house that had no electric. Slate and Spade successfully evacuated these residents and many others across the county. “With a little bit of teamwork and ingenuity you can do almost anything,” Slate said. Spade agreed. The two men drove back to their station to prepare for the next call. Many family members greeted them when they arrived. Because of the risk involved in their jobs, these fire fighters keep their families by their side as much as possible. Bobby Bragg,

Brother and sister, Robbie and Emily Jividen, enjoy the first 'snow day' of the season. Photo by Michelle Jividen like many other volunteers at the station, values time with his wife and children. This Main St. resident described how he feels every morning. “The hardest part of this job is not knowing if you’re going to

come home that night,” The father of two said. “My family knows the risk, but it’s always in the back of my mind.” He and the firemen in Hurricane put themselves last and put their families and those in need, first. The reason Bragg risks his life for others is the same reason all these men do: he wants to help others in need. “I wanted to do something with my life,” Bragg said. “I wanted to help the community and help people.” During a short break in the busy morning Asst. Chief Spade summed up the mission of the Hurricane Fire Department. “We take care of our population,” he said.

Veterans Day 2012

Tuesday,November 6,2012 – Page 9

Honoring all Veterans for their Dedication! The Story of Taps The 24-note melancholy bugle call known as “taps” is thought to be a revision of a French bugle signal, called “tattoo,” that notified soldiers to cease an evening’s drinking and return to their garrisons. It was sounded an hour before the final bugle call to end the day by extinguishing fires and lights. The last five measures of the tattoo resemble taps. The word “taps” is an alteration of the obsolete word “taptoo,” derived from the Dutch “taptoe.” Taptoe was the command — “Tap toe!” — to shut (“toe to”) the “tap” of a keg. The revision that gave us present-day taps was made during America’s Civil War by Union Gen. Daniel Adams Butterfield, heading a brigade camped at Harrison Landing, Va., near Richmond. Up to that time, the U.S. Army’s infantry call to end the day was the French final call, “L’Extinction des feux.” Gen. Butterfield decided the “lights out” music was too formal to signal the day’s end. One day in July 1862 he recalled the tattoo music and hummed a version of it to an aide, who wrote it down in music. Butterfield then asked the brigade bugler, Oliver W. Norton, to play the notes and, after listening, lengthened and shortened them while keeping his original melody. He ordered Norton to play this new call at the end of each day thereafter, instead of the regulation call. The music was heard and appreciated by other brigades, who asked for copies and adopted this bugle call. It was even adopted by Confederate buglers. This music was made the official Army bugle call after the war, but not given the name “taps” until 1874. The first time taps was played at a military funeral may also have been in Virginia soon after Butterfield composed it. Union Capt. John Tidball, head of an artillery battery, ordered it played for the burial of a cannoneer killed in action. Not wanting to reveal the battery’s position in the woods to the enemy nearby, Tidball substituted taps for the traditional three rifle volleys fired over the grave. Taps was played at the funeral of Confederate Gen. Stonewall Jackson 10 months after it was composed. Army infantry regulations by 1891 required taps to be played at military funeral ceremonies. Taps now is played by the military at burial and memorial services, to accompany the lowering of the flag and to signal the “lights out” command at day’s end.

Veterans Day 2012

The Putnam Standard

The Origin of Veterans Day In 1921, an unknown World War I American soldier was buried in Arlington National Cemetery. This site, on a hillside overlooking the Potomac River and the city of Washington, D.C., became the focal point of reverence for America’s veterans. Similar ceremonies occurred earlier in England and France, where an unknown soldier was buried in each nation’s highest place of honor (in England, Westminster Abbey; in France, the Arc de Triomphe). These memorial gestures all took place on November 11, giving universal recognition to the celebrated ending of World War I fighting at 11 a.m., November 11, 1918 (the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month). The day became known as “Armistice Day.” Armistice Day officially received its name in America in 1926 through a Congressional resolution. It became a national holiday 12 years later by similar Congressional action. If the idealistic hope had been realized that World War I was “the War to end all wars,” November 11 might still be called Armistice Day. But only a few years after the holiday was proclaimed, war broke out in Europe. Sixteen and one-half million Americans took part. Four hundred seven thousand of them died in service, more than 292,000 in battle. Armistice Day Changed To Honor All Veterans The first celebration using the term Veterans Day occurred in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1947. Raymond Weeks, a World War II veteran, organized "National Vet-

Hidden Trails

erans Day," which included a parade and other festivities, to honor all veterans. The event was held on November 11, then designated Armistice Day. Later, U.S. Representative Edward Rees of Kansas proposed a bill that would change Armistice Day to Veterans Day. In 1954, Congress passed the bill that President Eisenhower signed proclaiming November 11 as Veterans Day. Raymond Weeks received the Presidential Citizens Medal from President Reagan in November 1982. Weeks' local parade and ceremonies are now an annual event celebrated nationwide. On Memorial Day 1958, two more unidentified American war dead were brought from overseas and interred in the plaza beside the unknown soldier of World War I. One was killed in World War II, the other in the Korean War. In 1984, an unknown serviceman from the Vietnam War was placed alongside the others. The remains from Vietnam were exhumed May 14, 1998, identified as Air Force 1st Lt. Michael Joseph Blassie, and removed for burial. To honor these men, symbolic of all Americans who gave their lives in all wars, an Army honor guard, the 3rd U.S. Infantry (The Old Guard), keeps day and night vigil. A law passed in 1968 changed the national commemoration of Veterans Day to the fourth Monday in October. It soon became apparent, however, that November 11 was a date of historic significance to many Americans. Therefore, in 1978 Congress returned the observance to its traditional date.

National Ceremonies Held at Arlington National Cemetery The focal point for official, national ceremonies for Veterans Day continues to be the memorial amphitheater built around the Tomb of the Unknowns. At 11 a.m. on November 11, a combined color guard representing all military services executes “Present Arms” at the tomb. The nation’s tribute to its war dead is symbolized by the laying of a presidential wreath. The bugler plays “taps.” The rest of the ceremony takes place in the amphitheater. Veterans Day ceremonies at Arlington and elsewhere are coordinated by the President’s Veterans Day National Committee. Chaired by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, the committee represents national veteran’s organizations. Governors of many states and U.S. territories appoint Veterans Day chairpersons who, in cooperation with the National Committee and the Department of Defense, arrange and promote local ceremonies.

DNR adds to new Public Hunting and Fishing Areas

David Payne Sr.

Column by David Payne Sr.

You lose some. You gain some. You hope that you can gain more than you lose. Last year, hunters lost the Briery Mountain Wildlife Management Area in Preston County, but recently the DNR has announced that it is adding two new WMAs – Little Canaan in Tucker County and Sideling Hill in Morgan County. The state operates dozens and

dozens of WMAs – most of the property is leased from a variety of private individuals (the Sand Hill WMA increased vastly in size a few years ago courtesy of the O'Brien family), businesses or other government agencies. Many of the WMAs are leased from timber companies. The Hughes River WMA in Wirt County – among the state's largest – is one that comes to mind. It is leased from Westvaco. It's a strong, long-lasting relationship. The DNR is glad to make the property available and the timber company is certainly happy to have the deer herd there kept in check to limit the damage deer do to their timber resources. It's hard to plant new stands, for instance, if deer are killing all your young trees (deer are very hard on young trees). Some of the leases, like Briery Mountain, are less secure. You could almost think of them as a time-share. The DNR leased the Briery Mountain property from the West Virginia Army National Guard, who needed it for training and terminated the lease. Each

WMA has its own lease, so the situation varies from site to site, but most of them, once acquired, are very long-lasting. There may have been other lost WMAs, but Briery Mountain is the only one I can remember in my 13 years of covering the outdoors in West Virginia. The DNR – originally the state Game and Fish Commission – has been in the real-estate business for about a century now. It began by simply complimenting federal lands set aside for preservation (with no hunting) and they were places where the DNR could carry out various experiments and trials as it worked to restore game populations, which had been decimated. By the 1980s, however, deer and turkey populations were re-established throughout the state and there wasn't much need for game refuges, but a new trend emerged that put the DNR back in the realestate market. Our modern WMA concept can be traced back to Bob Miles, who retired as DNR wildlife-resources chief in 1994. Miles noticed the trend that access for hunters and

Outdoors Roundup Hunters Helping the Hungry needs Cash Since the program's inception in 1992, Hunters Helping the Hungry has made 770,000 pounds of nutritious venison available to needy West Virginia families, but officials say the program is capable of doing much more. Meat processing costs $1.45 per pound – the average deer provides around 36 pounds of ground venison – and the meat is picked up by the Mountaineer Food Bank or Huntington Area Food Bank for distribution. The food banks are paid only the cost of pickup and distribution. The Division of Natural Resources is prohibited by law from using any license fees to support the program, which must operate on donations only. Hunters have always been generous with game, so generous that officials have always had to limit the number of participating meat processors to limit the program to only process what venison it can afford. There are only 18 participating processors in West Virginia. The closest participating processors are: Nelson’s

Custom Processing in Milton, Rolfe’s Custom & Commercial Meat Processing, Inc. in Ona, Hilltop Meats in Sissonville and K & l Processing in New Haven. For more information, visit tm or call (304) 558-2771. State Parks picking up pieces after Frankenstorm West Virginia state park employees have been digging out of snow, clearing roadways and restoring electric and telephone service following widespread damage caused by, ironically, a blizzard from Tropical Storm Sandy, according to West Virginia State Parks and Recreation Chief Ken Caplinger. “One inch to two feet of snow has covered about 70 percent of our state parks and forests, depending upon the area,” Caplinger said. “Most areas also received extensive rainfall and varying degrees of wind, which in turn resulted in many fallen trees that caused even more damage.” It hasn't been very long since state parks had cleaned up from the summer's derecho storm that blast hurricane-force winds

across the state. “Two unusual major storms in less than four months is one for our record books,” Caplinger said. Beech Fork was open, but had only partial power and Cedar Creek, Cedar Creek and Greenbrier State Forest remained open but had no power. Among the temporarily closed parks were: Audra, Babcock, Berkeley Springs, Blackwater Falls, Bluestone, Cabwaylingo State Forest, Cacapon, Canaan Valley, Carnifex Ferry, Coopers Rock State Forest, Hawks Nest, Holly River, Kanawha State Forest, Kumbrabow State Forest, Stonewall Jackson, Twin Falls and Valley Falls. Hawk's Nest aerial Tram resumes just before Season Ends As mentioned here last month, the iconic Hawk's Nest aerial tram was shut down temporarily for repairs. Officials reported last week that the tram has been repaired. It was operating for a few days until the season ended Oct. 28. The tram, which takes visitors on a 500-vertical-foot descent into the New River Gorge from the canyon rim, will reopen in April.

anglers was becoming more restrictive. He foresaw a day when only landowners would have access to hunting and fishing. The obvious argument against this was that there were already millions of acres of federal land available for hunting and fishing. Miles, however, realized the impracticality of this – all these lands were in the eastern part of the state and a long drive away from most of the mountainstate's population. Miles believed it vital to set aside property upon which any properly-licensed person could hunt or fish. To pay for it, he created the conservation stamp, which hunters are required to purchase in addition to their licenses. His vision was for every citizen to have a state-managed hunting and fishing area within a two-hour drive of their home. The program has exceeded his original goal – now most residents have a WMA within a half hour drive. For instance, there are nine WMAs within a 40 minute drive of Putnam County. The Little Canaan WMA (3,168

acres) near Davis was acquired from the Canaan Valley Institute with conservation-stamp money coupled with funds from the West Virginia Outdoor Heritage Conservation Fund. It includes three miles of the Blackwater River. In addition to hunting opportunities, the WMA offers trout fishing. It also boasts a fishing pier for the physically-challenged. For more information, call (304) 825-6787. Sideling Hill (2,507 acres) is located near Largent in Morgan County. The land had been used for three generations by a hunting club. It is heavily forested and will be managed for forest game. For more information, call (304) 8223551. The DNR has been very creative not only with how it spends the conservation-stamp monies, but with cooperation with private citizens, businesses, non-profits and other groups to make these opportunities possible. No matter where you live, there's always a WMA close by. Contact David Payne Sr. at

Photography 101: Oak tree in October ISO: 200 Shutter: 1/125 Aperture/F-stop: 18 Flash: Onboard The intention behind this shot was to show an aspect of fall time in West Virginia. This shot is an easy one to pull off. Distorted perception makes this shot unique. More often than not, breaking basic rules can lead to great photography. By getting inches away from this object and zooming out with a large aperture, you can really emphasize the length of the tree while showing some of the intricacies in the bark, limbs and leaves. Large apertures often help to emphasize the size of objects or people in your pictures. Ø Zoom out as far as your lens can Ø Hold the camera at the base of the tree, lens pointing straight up and running parallel with its trunk Ø Make sure the sun does not blind you or cause flare in your shot Ø Make sure your flash is on Ø Depending on the brightness of the sun, you may need to decrease the shutter speed Editor’s Note:This week begins a new column,“Photography 101”in the Putnam Standard. Reporter/Photographer Justin Waybright will be bringing his knowledge of photography to our readers. Through his camera lens,

Justin will show – as well as explain – to us how the photo was

taken as well as the best settings to use.
