A continually updated list of employers planning to attend the Career Expo is available at Denise Hogsett, director of Career Services, said students are encouraged to dress professionally and come prepared with multiple copies of their resumes. Hogsett said even if students are not looking for a job, attending the expo presents an excellent networking opportunity. Leading up to the event, the Resume Doctor, Senior Career Counselor Mirek Bialk of Career Services, will be reviewing resumes for students on from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, in the Memorial Student Center lobby. No appointment is necessary.

HURRICANE – A large homecoming crowd turned out in Hurricane Friday night to watch the Redskins defeat the Ripley Vikings by a score of 210. Defense was key on the evening for both teams, as the first quarter featured a number of three-and-out drives and punts by both squads. The second quarter opened with Ripley deep in its own territory after Hurricane failed to score on a fourth and goal play. Viking quarterback Jake Martin tossed an interception to Hurricane's Jesse Barker who brought the ball to Ripley's 5yard line. Hurricane's Zach Pate punched the ball into the endzone, giving the Redskins a 7-0 lead – a score that stood until halftime. In the third quarter, Redskins quarterback Austin Hensley connected with receiver Koi Turner for a 28-yard touchdown pass that made the score 14-0.

Photo by Jack Bailey The Redskins added another score in the fourth quarter when Pate ran the ball in from 7 yards out for a touchdown to bring the game to 21-0. On the evening, Turner hauled in 10 catches for 140

yards, while Hensley passed for more than 200 yards. With the victory, Hurricane goes to 4-2 on the season and remains very much in the postseason playoff hunt. Prior to Friday night's game,

Hurricane was ranked as the No. 14 team in Class AAA. The new rankings, reflecting Friday night's results, will be released on Tuesday. The top 16 teams SEE FOOTBALL ON PAGE 10

Putnam woman files civil suit after police incident By Lawrence Smith

HUNTINGTON – A Putnam County woman is accusing a Hurricane police officer of falsely arresting her. Officer L.M. Angell is named as a defendant in a civil rights suit filed by Lena Qualls in U.S. District Court. In her complaint filed

Sept. 26, Qualls, 55, of Hurricane, alleges following a verbal altercation two years ago, Angell arrested her on what is commonly called a contempt-of-cop charge. According to the suit, Angell came to Qualls’ house on Sept. 29, 2010 “without probable cause and without a warrant of entry or arrest.” Shortly after arrival, Angell “had physical contact with

[Qualls] and pushed and knocked [her] to the ground, all because she was expressing her opinions of his actions and other matters and all of which was without probable cause or provocation, and without any resistance whatsoever.” Afterward, Angell arrested Qualls, and charged her with obstructing, and battery on a police

officer, both misdemeanors. Though Magistrate Kylene Dunlap Brown found her guilty at a Feb. 25, 2011 bench trial, Judge O.C. “Hobby” Spaulding found her not guilty three months later following her appeal to circuit court. Along with excessive force, SEE SUIT ON PAGE 3

Law firm to host webcast on new state Business Court By Kyla Asbury

CHARLESTON – Steptoe & Johnson is hosting a webcast Oct. 11 that will present information about West Virginia’s Business Court division that is to begin next week. The webcast, titled “Navigating the Uncharted Waters of the New Business Court Division,” is being presented by Steptoe & Johnson attorneys Russell D. Jessee and Deva Solomon. Jessee said the webcast is designed to answer as many questions about the business court as possible.

“People are asking, ‘What is this?’ and ‘What will it be like?,’ and we feel we have some insight on that,” Jessee said. “We participated in the September 2011 Rule Development meeting and we have had input into the proposed rules and followed the business court’s development for more than a year.” Solomon said they are hoping the participants will gain a better understanding of what the Business Court division is. “We hope the participants will be able to gain knowledge of what sorts of cases are eligible for the court and what ad-

vantages it will offer to businesses,” Solomon said. “It’ll be exciting to see how the Business Court division unfolds.” Jessee said the webcast is slated to last one hour and will have a question and answer session at the end. “We’re shooting for 20 to 40 minutes of presentation and the rest will be answering questions,” Jessee said. “We want to help make the addition of the business court and what that means clear for everyone” The new Business Court division will begin Oct. 10 and will handle disputes between businesses. The procedures for the

Business Court division are entirely new and some aspects remain to be developed. The webcast will address what the business court is; what types of cases are suited to resolution by the Business Court division and what types of cases are excluded; why a business may want its case transferred to the division; and what is involved in transferring a case to the division. The webcast will be held from 12 p.m. until 1 p.m. on Oct. 11. For more information about how to register for the webcast, www.steptoevisit

Fall forest fire season under way - burning restrictions in place CHARLESTON — The West Virginia Division of Forestry reminds residents that the state’s fall forest fire season started on Oct. 1, 2012, and runs through Dec. 31, 2012. During these three months, daytime burning is prohibited from the hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Outdoor burning is permitted only between the hours of 5 p.m. and 7 a.m. State law requires a ring or safety strip around outdoor fires to keep the fire from spreading into the woods. This safety strip must be cleared of all burnable material and be at least 10 feet

wide completely around the debris pile. Additional requirements of the state’s fire laws include staying on-site until the fire is completely extinguished, and only burning vegetative materials like leaves, brush and yard clippings. If you allow a fire you have started to escape and it causes a wildfire or forest fire, you will be subject to fines ranging from $100 to $1,000. An additional civil penalty of $200 also will be assessed against you. The Division of Forestry offers these tips for safe outdoor burn-

ing: •Burn only after 5 p.m. — it’s the law — and put your fire out completely by 7 a.m. •Put debris in several small piles instead of one large one •Never burn on dry, windy days •Select a safe place away from overhead power lines, phone lines or other obstructions and where the fire cannot spread into the woods or weedy or brushy areas •Clear at least a 10-foot area around the fire and make sure the area is clear of all burnable

material •Have water and tools on hand to extinguish anything that may escape the burn area •Be conscientious of neighbors and don’t burn debris that produces a lot of smoke at times when smoke does not rise. If the smoke spreads out near the ground instead of rising, put out the fire and burn another time. •Stay with the fire at all times until it is completely out. Leaving a fire unattended for any length of time is illegal. •Call 911 immediately if a fire does escape

Commercial burning permits may be obtained by public utilities and people burning in conjunction with commercial, manufacturing, mining or like activities. These burning permits cost $125 each and are issued by local Division of Forestry offices. A permit is required for each site where this type of burning takes place. To find out more about West Virginia’s burning laws and where you can obtain a burning permit, visit the Division of Forestry’s website at

Deadline to apply for SBA working capital loans is Nov. 6 SUBMITTED ARTICLE ATLANTA -- The U.S. Small Business Administration is reminding small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture and most private non-profit organizations of all sizes that Nov. 6 is the filing deadline for federal economic injury disaster loans available in West Virginia as a result of excessive rain and flooding between Nov. 21 – 23, 2011. The SBA's disaster declaration includes the following counties: Jackson, Kanawha, Mason, Putnam, Roane, Wirt and Wood. "When the Secretary of Agriculture issues a disaster declaration to help farmers recover from damages and losses to crops, the Small Business Administration issues a declaration to eligible entities affected by the same disaster," said Frank Skaggs, director of SBA's

Field Operations Center East in Atlanta. Under this declaration, the SBA's Economic Injury Disaster Loan program is available to eligible farm-related and nonfarm-related entities that suffered financial losses as a direct result of this disaster. With the exception of aquaculture enterprises, SBA cannot provide disaster

loans to agricultural producers, farmers, or ranchers. The loan amount can be up to $2 million with a 4 percent interest rate for eligible small businesses and 3 percent for non-profit organizations with terms up to 30 years. The SBA determines eligibility based on the size of the applicant, type of activity and its financial resources. Loan

amounts and terms are set by the SBA and are based on each applicant's financial condition. These working capital loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable, and other bills that could have been paid had the disaster not occurred. The loans are not intended to replace lost sales or profits. Applicants may apply online

using the Electronic Loan Application (ELA) via SBA's secure website at Disaster loan information and application forms may also be obtained by calling the SBA's Customer Service Center at 800659-2955 (800-877-8339 for the deaf and hard-of-hearing) or by sending an email to Loan applications can be downloaded from the SBA's website at Completed applications should be mailed to: U.S. Small Business Administration, Processing and Disbursement Center, 14925 Kingsport Road, Fort Worth, TX 76155. Completed loan applications must be returned to SBA no later than November 6, 2012 . For more information about the SBA's Disaster Loan Program, visit our website at

Archives and History to present special archaeology program CHARLESTON – Annette Ericksen, archaeology program coordinator for Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio, will present a talk on W. C. Stiles Jr.’s Thornhill estate site, near the abandoned town of Volcano, W.Va., on Thursday, Oct. 18, in the Archives and History Library at the Culture Center, State Capitol Complex in Charleston. The 6 p.m. program is timed to coincide with Archaeology Month and is free and open to the public. Stiles is credited for introducing the endless cable pumping system to the oil production industry. He founded the town of Volcano in southeastern Wood County primarily to serve his oil business in the area. It existed from about 1863 until destroyed by fire in 1879, when many people moved away rather than rebuild. The Thornhill estate was built

in 1874 and was one of the finest in the region, with well-manicured grounds, an expansive wine cellar and a tennis court. The mansion was so grand that important visitors to the town would stay at Thornhill rather than the fine hotel in town. Stiles died at Thornhill in 1896 and the town slowly faded away. The home was torn down in the 1940s, having been stripped of furniture and accoutrements during the Great Depression. The estate and town site are in Mountwood Park, part of the

Wood County park system. The West Virginia Oil & Gas Museum in Parkersburg, W.Va., is developing the town site as part of the West Virginia Oil & Gas Heritage District. Ericksen received her bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in anthropology from The Ohio State University. She has worked in the field for 30 years and specializes in historic Appalachian archaeology, with a focus on industrialization and ethnicity. Ericksen teaches at Hocking College. During the last

hunting trip? I'm sure his campaign staff thought he looked like Theodore Roosevelt on safari. For those of us who hunt and fish, I can't really print the word that best describes what he looked like, but it rhymes with black bass. It wasn't long after the election that he went back to sponsoring gun-control legislation. I will admit, however, Clinton at least looked passable for a duck hunter. This time it's different. The outdoors is out of the political arena this time. I think a lot of that has to do with the fact the U.S. Supreme Court did something positive for once by upholding the Second Amendment. That doesn't mean there's nothing left to fight – in our own state, there's a big one, the Second Amendment stops at the tree line. For most of the year, you are not allowed to have a firearm in any area of the state forested, which is 80 percent of our great state. If you're camping, you can't even carry a revolver for protection.

That's tyranny I've been arguing against for years, but it always seems I fight it alone. Nobody but me seems to care. I did meet gubernatorial candidate Bill Maloney a couple of months ago and I briefly made my case that this was a gross Second-Amendment violation. He was, at least, receptive to my argument. He said “that doesn't sound right at all” and that he would look into this. Whether he has or not, I don't know. All I can do is say “this is tyranny.” Back to this election. It's pretty obvious where Paul Ryan stands, he's an avid bowhunter, but you haven't seen much on the presidential candidates themselves. The group Keep America Fishing, however, asked candidates several questions about fishingrelated issues, which I will relay here this week and next. Here is what they have to say about their personal fishing experiences: Obama: “Although I grew up fishing with my friends and grandfather

in Hawaii, I am not an avid sportsman and do not claim to be. I do, however, understand the importance of our nation's outdoor heritage and the key role that sportsmen play in the conservation of our natural resources. On the campaign trail in '08 I had the opportunity to spend some time in Montana and decided that, win or lose, I would go back there and learn to fly fish. After taking office, I was fortunate enough to return to the state and fish the East Gallatin River. Despite having excellent guides and getting a few bites, the weather was tough that day and I didn't land a fish. I really enjoyed the challenge of fly fishing and I'm looking forward to doing it more. I want to try for trout again but would also like to try saltwater and maybe catch a tarpon.” Romney: “Growing up in Michigan, fishing was a prominent pastime in the area, and I truly understand the valuable role recreational fishermen play both in our economy and our environment. As a

boy, I fished with my dad, and in recent years, I went fishing in Alaska with my son, Matt. Though my schedule makes these types of trips rarer than I would like, I realize that fishing is one of America's great opportunities to connect with family, friends, and nature. As president, those in my administration will work with fishermen to protect this great American heritage. I gained a better understanding of the concerns and motivations of fishermen as governor of a coastal state. In Massachusetts, I was able to work with both commercial and recreational fisherman to ensure that our state's policies met their needs and that my administration understood their concerns. As president, I will draw on these personal and professional experiences to advocate for America's fishing community.” Continued next week. Contact David Payne Sr. at

Outdoors Roundup Famous Shay No. 5 engine used to restore brook trout spawning areas It may seem like irony to some, poetic justice to others, but the same steam locomotive that used to haul timber from West Virginia forests a century ago is being used to improve fish habitat that its tracks damaged long ago. On the morning of Oct. 1, just as the editions of The Putnam Standard and The Cabell Standard are being readied for mailing to subscribers, the Shay No. 5 engine departed the Cass railyard with three tons of speciallybaffled culvert liners. The train

hauled the material up Cheat Mountain to Oats Run, a tributary of the renowned Shaver's Fork of the Cheat River. Workers installed the culverts to make it possible for native brook trout to access their historic upstream spawning areas. The DNR, as well as West Virginia University researchers have been working together – often with help, expertise and funding from businesses, such as timber companies, to return once-pristine mountain streams to native brook trout fisheries. With grant funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Eastern

Brook Trout Joint Venture, DNR and WVU personnel have been undoing damage done by logging and trains in the early 1900s before the implementation of modern best management practices. That damage makes it difficult for fish to move up and down streams to grow and reproduce. The culverts will restore trout access to the tributary. “Many brook trout streams were altered by dredging, installation of railroad culverts and bridges, and early-century logging itself,” said DNR director Frank Jezioro. “When you change the streams that way and take away the trees that help keep them cool, it’s hard for trout to live in them year-round.” While the Cass railroad has long been a prized rail for passengers with an eye for scenic vistas, this trip was all business – carrying only the work detail. Oats Run is located near the remote, historic logging town of Spruce. The Shavers Fork watershed, located high on Cheat Mountain in Randolph and Pocahontas counties, has suffered at

the hands of progress, but is now undergoing a remarkable makeover. Native brook trout which inhabited these streams once attracted famous sportsmen like Thomas Edison, Harvey Firestone and Henry Ford who fished and admired this renowned fishery. Archery Deer season open in West Virginia West Virginia's archery deer and bear seasons opened Sept. 29. For the past several years, West Virginia has had a September opening for its deer archery season, instead of the traditional mid-October opening in an effort to expand recreational opportunities for hunters. The wild boar archery season opens Oct. 13. The bear season is a split season that runs until Nov. 17 and again from Dec. 3 to Dec. 31. Special stamps are required and different regulations apply in different counties. Visit for more information. DNR reminding hunters to check game.

With two of the state's biggame seasons – archery deer and bear - under way, the DNR is reminding hunters that they must fill out and attach a field tag to harvested game in the field. For deer, the unskinned carcass or fresh skin and head must be checked in at an official checking station before it is transported beyond a county adjacent to the county of kill. It must be checked in within 72 hours of when it was harvested or within 24 hours of the season's closing. In Logan, McDowell, Mingo or Wyoming counties, however, the deer must be checked in the four-county area within 24 hours of the time of kill. Deer killed outside these four counties cannot be checked within these counties. For bear, the unskinned carcass or fresh skin must be checked within 24 hours after kill and before any part of the bear is transported more than 75 miles from the point of kill.

JAMES S. DAVIS II On Monday, September 24, 2012, at 7:03 a.m., James S. Davis II, of Cambridge, Ohio, began his longawaited journey home to the Lord. Mr. Davis was born January 1, 1953, at three minutes past midnight, and was 59 years old. His journey through life started by missing all the presents at birth, as he was not the first baby born of the year in Charleston. From that point on his life had highs and lows which tested his faith and, in some cases, sounded like a story worthy of a novel. James graduated from Charleston High School and was honored to be a part of the football team which won three straight State AAA Championships. He turned down a scholarship to play football at a distant college. He found his athletic talents reemerge in judo, obtaining the rank of second degree black belt and winning four straight Heavyweight State Championships from 19791982 and coaching several more state champion children and adults. In 1982, he was invited to train in Colorado Springs at the Olympic training facility for 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. He turned it down and, in later years, regretted what might have been. In his employment history, Jim worked as a manager for Heck's and, when they went out of business, teamed up with Olan Mills Church division, taking photos of many families for the church directories. His last and most rewarding career started when he found a passion for helping people hear. Jim opened and operated Clear Hearing Gallery as a National Board Certified audioprosthologist. Jim leaves his loving, supportive wife of 27 years, Elaine Kay (Boals) Davis; and his two children, of whom he was extremely proud, Nicholas James and Katherine Ann Davis. The newest addition to the family was a granddaughter, Brianna Lynn Davis, who Jim was already trying to figure out what

The Putnam Standard sport she would excel in; his mother, Sally Neale of Scott Depot; father, James S. (Jane) Davis of Palestine, Texas; and a sister, Betty (John) Whiteley of Scott Depot.
