A new Day for Poca Football

Redskins on a Winning Streak By Justin Waybright justin@theputnamstandard.com

HURRICANE - The Redskins beat the Princeton Tigers Friday, extending its winning streak to three-in-a-row. The boys in red and white haven't just won these games-they've dominated them. Hurricane has won by more than three touchdowns per game. The team is gradually becoming a force to be feared. Relentless offense and formidable defense are a constant for Redskin victories. Back to Friday night's matchup. It was one sweet Homecoming for Hurricane. The sweetness all started in the first quarter with a 40-yard touchdown pass to junior wide receiver Brandon Ford. The momentum was now established. However, the Tigers growled back and roared into the end zone, putting points on the board. Yet, into the second quarter, the Redskins hushed the tigers quickly. The one-two-punch beSEE REDSKINS ON PAGE 6

POCA - The September sun lights up red and grey jerseys.

Coaches train 24 boys on the ins and outs of solid defense and offense. It's Monday evening football practice at Poca Middle School. But something is different.

The boys push themselves beyond their physical abilities. Instead of resting, they keep going. It's redemption. It's victory. It's a new day.

For three years, this program has had its hopes of winning dashed. Three seasons equaled zero wins. SEE POCA ON PAGE 3

New Town Hall and Police Department in the Works? By Justin Waybright justin@theputnamstandard.com

WINFIELD - A major change could come to Winfield. For decades, mayors have strived to create a town hall large enough to house the police department. Now, the opportunity is here. And it hinges on one decision by the town council. If approved, Winfield will move out of its 80-year-old structure and move forward with the purchase of a 1-1/2 year-old building in the heart of the town's shopping centers.

Room for growth - Winfield Council members consider moving the town hall and police department under one roof. More than 7,700-square-feet of building space exists at the former PJ's Daycare facility on 3426 Winfield Road. Photo by Justin Waybright The former PJ's Daycare property at 3426 Winfield Road is the

potential spot. The business vacated the 7,750-square-foot

building earlier this month, opening up an opportunity. "If we move forward in purchasing this property, then the town hall and police department could be close together and under one roof," Winfield Mayor Randy Barrett said. "Then, the old police department could become a community center." The price tag is $735,000. Barrett said, if agreed upon, the town would put some money down and take a loan for the rest. The property owner has given council members two weeks to make a decision. SEE TOWN ON PAGE 5

Christian's Sports Beat: Daytime Job Lawyer, Nighttime Job Referee

By: Christian Deiss

CHARLESTON, WV - Like many kids I wear multiple hats, during the day I wear my school hat, later I wear my soccer or running hats. Recently I talked with an adult that also wears different hats, during the day he is a lawyer and at night, especially on Friday nights, he is a high school football referee. Dan Greer is the Assistant Attorney General for the state of West Virginia and referees for the West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission (WVSSAC). Greer deals a lot with judges in the courtroom and coaches on the sidelines and I asked him how the two situations are similar, “They both yell at me sometimes, hopefully not too much. Actually it’s a little bit different because when I’m a referee I am almost like the judge, when I am

an attorney, the judge is making the decision so he is kind of like the referee and on Friday nights the coaches are like the lawyers, so their similar but a little bit different too.” Greer has been the Assistant Attorney General since the first of the year. During a game referees have to call penalties and Greer told me how he thinks players can learn more about the game through the yellow flags thrown, “I think like anything else in life, when you make mistakes that’s when we learn from things. For instance this year we are putting a lot of emphasis on helmet contact and not hitting with your helmet and sometimes I don’t think kids totally understand a new rule until we call a penalty on them and that’s when they begin to grasp the situation and know what to do or not to do the next time around.” Greer has been refereeing high school football in West Virginia for over a decade. Greer knew he wanted to be a lawyer when he was in the eighth grade in Kanawha County after he attended Sheriff’s Camp. The native West Virginian played high school football and after he got out of law school, a friend, also a referee, suggested for him to take the classes and become a referee. I asked Greer what has been

Christian interviewing Dan Greer in his office at the state capitol. Courtesy photo his most exciting moment on the field, “Ten years ago during a state semi-final double-A game between Bluefield and Weirton, Weirton was up by 13 late in the fourth quarter when Bluefield fought back and tied the game with one second left and then won in overtime. It was my second playoff game and I think that was the most exciting fun I ever had as an official.” On the flipside, Greer’s most embarrassing moment as a referee occurred in his first year, “We were in Montgomery for a valley game, there was an interception return and I tried to follow it into the end zone and a player coming from behind me accidently knocked into my back, causing me to stumble and

trip and that’s when my flag, beanbag, whistle and hat went everywhere. They thought I had thrown a penalty flag but I waved that off. A lot of the fans had a good time with me on that one.” Sportsmanship is a big part of high school football and Greer told me athletes need to understand that arguing can be a bad choice, “My advice to young players is to just go on and play the next play. As much as we try we are not going to get every call right, sometimes we are going to get them wrong but regardless once that call is made it’s done and it’s not going to do that player any good to get mad about it or think about it because the play is over.” Greer told me he uses referee-

Dan Greer flipping the coin to start a Friday night high school football game in West Virginia. Courtesy photo ing as a source of relaxation from his day job, “The thing I like about refereeing for those six or seven hours is I can think totally about football, (I’m) not thinking about my other job and cases I am involved in or problems I might be having at work, refereeing totally takes my mind off of that other part of my life that can stressful sometimes.” So the next time you go to a high school football game, think about the other responsibilities the referees might have and give them a chance and know they are just like you and I. Hope to see you at a game soon.

POCA FROM PAGE 1 The heartbeat of middle school sports in Poca was fading. But Thursday Sept. 12 changed everything. The heart started beating again. Victory was finally theirs. The team grabbed its first win in three seasons. It beat Fort Gay 24 to 7. One night and one victory have propelled Poca's push to a winning season. Running back Andrew Eastwood stood a little taller last week. "This is great," the eighth grader said. "In that game, we didn't have many offensive mistakes, and our linemen did well." Left tackle Tanner Priddy agreed. "Our defense worked really well together," he said. Jacob Gates, right tackle believes the win will help turn a key to victory: the mindset of his team. "I think it will hype us up a

lot," he said. When asked what it will take to win another game, the eighth grader said, "heart." Center and linebacker Luke Rhodes practices a little harder now; runs a little faster, stands a little stronger since the team ended its long-standing losing streak. "It felt great to win - after the game, everyone told us how good we did," he said. "If we play as well as we did against Fort Gay, we'll win another one." Defensive Coordinator J.T. Hartley is proud of his boys. Hartley has more than a decade of experience in coaching football. He knows what it takes to win. "The whole thing was getting them to believe they could win,"

Hartley explained. "We've told them all year, 'it's going to be different this year.'" He was right. "It's all them...not us," Hartley said. Now, the boys have more trust in their coaches, he said. For months, they worked out the players' minds as much if not more than their muscles. Coach Charlie Hartley is proud of his boys. "During that game, they led the way from the time they took the field to the end," he said. "It was nice to see all the fans and the boys excited - now, their attitude has totally changed." The coach looked toward his boys and smiled, "They really believe in what they can do."

“WHO-BELIEVES” Thought for the week: For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus - Galatians 3:26 (KJV) A couple weeks ago, the city of Huntington decided it was time to clear the riverbanks along Harris River Front Park of all homeless people; taking down the tents and any type shelter they may have. We have missions and other facilities for the homeless to go to but they seem to want by the river. This could be you or I - a person can lose all that has meaning to them in life - in a matter of a few minutes. YOU can lose hope and faith; the days have no meaning and your mind has no care or thoughts - the body functions on routine. We are all the children of God. He created us and we go thru good times and bad in our life’s span. Instead of moving these people out, why can’t they take some time for a human being, by directing them to needed facilities for help? I know sometimes it

works, sometimes it doesn’t - it is always worth a try, if it directs just ONE to a better life. Just read some of these statistics found on the back of a bulletin by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (taking 100 average neighbors that could be right around you, in your community). Don’t think it cannot happen to you, there is a problem behind every door. 7 of your neighbors struggle with depression; 14 feel crippled or trapped by fear and anxiety; 7 are abused or are addicted to drugs or alcohol; 8 are struggling with the loss of a job; 3 are grieving the death of a loved one; 60 don’t profess to be born again. We should all agree with 95year-old Billy Graham and have Hope in America. We are the people. Take a long look at the one dollar bill. ‘’IN GOD WE TRUST’’ was not printed on there for added looks, it’s what our coun-

The Putnam Standard try was founded on. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 As you read this, you think so what can I do about it? You can count as ONE who believes there is a God in Heaven who watches over us. Read your Bible, pray, attend church, professing your Christianity; not listening, watching nor participating with drugs or low moral behavior. Set an example and help others. We all believe in ourselves, we all love something. What is so hard about believing in God? John 8:24 - I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins; for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. A CHILDS VIEW; Dear God, We read Thomas Edison made light, but in school, they said you did it, so - I bet he stole your idea. Dear God, Thank you for the baby brother, but… what I prayed for was a puppy. Dear God, In Sunday school they told us what you do… who does it, when you go on vacation. Some people talk about finding GOD - as if He could get lost. Prayer: Thank you GOD for making the world and all that is in it, including me. Amen.

Tri-County YMCA The Skinny: Sept. 24, 2013 Tips on How To Not “Fall” Into An Unhealthy Autumn Pattern As summer comes to a close and fall begins, so does the opportunity to lose some healthy habits. Don’t lose your momentum from the summer months or put yourself into a position to possibly get sick. Flu season is close so here are some tips to help you keep a healthy lifestyle for not only yourself, but your family as well. • Don’t overdo it during football season. Tailgating and football go together hand in hand and during the fall months, thousands of calories are consumed. However, a tailgate doesn’t have to be chicken wings or fattening dips. Make healthy choices such as grilled chicken kabobs, grilled veggies, fresh fruit or even chili. Also remember, alcohol is full of calories so

make sure consumption is balanced out with water. Just remember to make smart choices and practice moderation. One bad Saturday can wipe out a week of healthy eating. • Get plenty of sleep. With the start of school and a busy time of year, chances are that bedtimes are pushed back and hard to maintain because of changes to schedules. Here are some good bedtime practices for children and adults: • Avoid large meals before bed. • Make sure there is downtime before going to bed. Make sure any electronics or televisions are turned off. • Try to have all studying and playtime finished early in the evening. • According to the National Sleep Foundation, here are recommendations on how much sleep children need: Ages 3-5: 11-13 hours

Happy Anniversary!

Jeremy and Ginger Sweat Carl and Patsy Davis

Ages 5-12: 10-11 hours Ages 11-17: 9.5-9.25 hours • Make time to exercise. Just 30 minutes per day will result in increased energy levels, better sleep and can help the body fight stress. Exercise will not only help your body but your brain as well. Any type of exercise will do – walking, running, swimming and even dancing. So, make the effort to wake up earlier or fit it in your schedule to maintain a healthy you during the fall months. Your body and immune system will thank you!

Terri Eggleston Chosen Service Employee of the Year Exceptional Education Aide Teresa “Terri” Eggleston has been chosen the 2013-14 Service Employee of the Year for Putnam County Schools. Eggleston has been employed at George Washington Middle School since 2004 and was employed in the Putnam Parent Education Resource Center for ten years prior to that.

Eggleston, whom Superintendent Chuck Hatfield deems, “absolutely a model of what we want and need in an employee,” maintains her classroom skills by attending training in numerous areas, including CPR and First Aid, Medication Administration, Non-violent Crisis Intervention, and Classroom Behavior Management.

Besides her participation in George Washington Middle School functions, she is a member of the West Virginia Education Association and Mount Vernon Baptist Church. Eggleston is also Service Employee of the Year for George Washington Middle School.

TOWN FROM PAGE 1 "The lot is a total of 24,000square feet and the building has a new fire safety system, insulation, a full kitchen and a bathroom in every room," said co-owner Dale Vance. "It has a total of 13 rooms and everything is up to code." One often made request by town and city hall employees across the nation is surveillance. The available building in Winfield already has this covered. "We have cameras in every room, so security is already there," said co-owner David Santon. "What a better place to have town hall." Vance agreed. "This is where it should be," he said. "There is no major work that needs to be done to get the building ready." The two men believe moving the town hall and police department to the shopping area will be a major benefit to store owners and residents. "When we built this building, we thought it'd be a great place for town hall," Vance said. Santon looked toward the busy

"We live in Winfield and we always want to keep the best interest of the people here in mind," he said. The two agree the open location off the main road will give

the town hall and police department more exposure, making the two entities easier to find. The mayor believes purchasing the property can offer a plethora of benefits to town employees and residents alike. "Efficiency and unity among both the town and police department, more exposure being on 817 and money-saving by having both under one roof - this just seems like a win-win for everybody in the town," Barrett said. However, Winfield has competition. Since PJ's vacated, individuals and entrepreneurs have swarmed the property, inquiring of its cost. But, the mayor is confident the building should belong to the town. "The time is right...the price is right," he said. Winfield council members will decide during a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the town hall chambers.

Velma’sView By Velma Kitchens Fall Again - It is that time of year again, not only football but the fall of the year. As I wrote last year and I won't repeat myself, I feel like something has died in the fall of the year. I don't think it is a disease, but a feeling deep down inside that will not go away for a few weeks. When fall begins - and the leaves fall - I know that old man winter will appear and I really don't like winter. I know I should live day by day and I do, but thinking about the winter makes me sad. Once fall starts and the leaves are again bursting with color I get better and when the first snow comes I guess I am just over the whole thing because I start looking forward to the spring and summer. The Lord makes the day and we should rejoice in it. And I feel I do. He has gotten me through a lot of seasons and He will once again see me through. I am thinking about the Pumpkin Festival in Milton and I enjoy the festival as you get to meet new people and look around at all the different vendors. The children have a good time at the petting zoo. The biggest pumpkin is something to see and sometimes it is awesome that something that big can come from a small seed? Milton will be busy-busy during the Pumpkin Festival and there are a lot more things to do in the fall of the year. So get out there and enjoy!

The Redskins passed by the Tigers. Moments later, Hensley threw another successful touchdown pass to senior wide receiver Henry Sorsaia, to clench a solid victory. When the fourth quarter ended, the scoreboard stated Hurricane: 41, Princeton: 21. The season now reads three and one. Hurricane hopes to add yet another "W" to the record during its match against Cabell Midland this Friday. Like the Redskins, Knights has also won its first three out of four games. The action starts at 7:30 p.m. on Cabell Midland's turf.

Pumpkin Patches, Hay and Corn Mazes Back In Season CHARLESTON, WV - If you and your family are wondering where the closest places are to find the family pumpkin, take a hay ride, or get lost in a corn maze this season, look no further. West Virginia is full of agritourism venues to help get you in the fall spirit. Brookedale Farms – Keyser, WV – Come take a hayride out to the corn maze! This farm is open every weekend and has big activities for the fall like the 10th Annual “Fall Feast-Off” where you can help judge local foods, check out local crafts, and hear down-home music. Stick around in the evenings and you can participate in an old- fashioned wienee roast and flashlight mazes. Find more info at brookedalefarm.com. Cooper Family Farms – Milton, WV – Kids can take a ride on the “cow train,” or try to navigate the “corn crawl crib” before they head to the pumpkin patch to pick out the family pumpkin. This year you can navigate through the corn maze by using your smartphone as a trivia sheet or, if you’re brave enough, stick around for an evening in the haunted maze. But at least stay around to roast s’mores over the camp fire before you go home. Find more info at cooperfamilyfarms.net. Gritt’s Farm – Buffalo, WV – Here you can find pumpkins for sale in the shop, at the farm stand, or pick them out yourself in the pumpkin patch. You can also find all sorts of different mazes here – a corn maze, a haunted corn maze, a kiddie (mini) corn maze, a straw maze or a hay bale maze. For more info call 304-937-2565. Kirkwood Winery – Summersville, WV – This year the winery hosts the 22nd Annual Grape Stompin’ Festival and this family-friendly atmosphere gives you a chance to visit the famous Isaiah Morgan Distillery. While you’re there, kick your shoes off and stomp some grapes of your own. You can get in on the fun September 21st and 22nd. Find more info at kirkwood-wine.com. Little Patch on the Lane – Teays Valley, WV – Stop by and pick your pumpkin right out of the patch in Putnam County. For more info call 304-541-1649.

Wave Pool Bounces Back By Justin Waybright justin@thecabellstandard.com

HURRICANE - Valley Park's wave pool splashed back this year. This summer spelled a new season for the area attraction and the new pumps led the way. Last year, days at the pool were long for staff. Tired, 30-year-old motors died more than they produced waves. Long days of ripping engines apart and replacing gears, electrical and internal parts plagued park workers. Even then, breakdown would be inevitable. The summer's main economic driver for the area was in jeopardy. "Last year it was hard to get out of bed and go to work, knowing the pumps were going to go down and people were going to com-

plain," remembered Putnam Parks and Recreation Director Scott Williamson. "But, this year and last year was like night and day - it was fun to go to work and those new pumps made a big difference." He continued, "We bounced back." Instead of complaints, wave pool manager Jamie Wright heard compliments. "This year, people enjoyed the waves," he said. "Crowds were up and complaints were down." In spite of picking up the pieces from last year, the wave pool showed resiliency this year. The numbers declare victory. Last year, 12,000 people visited the pool. This year, 27,000 came. Last year, the pool generated $223,000 in revenue. This year, the wave pool brought in nearly $300,000. Wright looked through logs and records that pointed to

Season of redemption - Waves of Fun overcame last season's woes and worries and had a successful summer. The wave pool saw more people, money and open days. Photo by Justin Waybright steady growth during this past summer. "June was a good month, July was rainy and August we were open on weekends," he said. "We

were open 65 days out of 87 days, which is 75 percent of the time." Next pool season is 10 months away, but Wright, Williamson and staff are preparing now. They

have expectancy in their hearts. "We're starting preventative maintenance before there could ever be a problem," Williamson said. "We're going to have a brand new pool that is re-surfaced, re-painted with new pumps to re-circulate the water." Wright is excited to help boost the pool forward. He sees the potential it has. "We're also going to bring updates to the lobby and deck area of the pool," Wright said. "We also have ideas about options and packages to offer local residents." The pool manager continued, "One of our goals is to offer tickets on our website." Williamson looked toward the pool and slides with determination in his eyes. "This will become a springboard for a regional tourism destination," he said.

Poca Heritage Days Away By Justin Waybright justin@thecabellstandard.com

POCA - Leaves turn brown, temperatures drop and the wind is blowing something familiar through town. It's September. That could only mean one thing: It's time for the annual Poca Heritage Days. American Flags line the streets. Red and grey Heritage Day banners stretch and wave in the air. The town is gearing up for the 3-day-event that will draw thousands to its riverside community. This year's theme is "Happy 150th Birthday West Virginia." Poca Councilmember Jolita Raine is excited about the upcoming festival. She has watched it evolve since 1980. "It's grown over the years," Raine said. "We have a little bit of everything for everyone." The 33rd Annual Poca Heritage Days will give area residents three full days of activities to enjoy. Below is a schedule of events. · 5 p.m. Sept. 26: Senior Honoring Dinner at Poca United Methodist Church.

Honoring veterans - Gatens-Harding Funeral Home recognizes servicemen and women with a float in the parade and the Wall of Honor. Courtesy Photo · Sept. 28, Saturday morning: Ghareeb Dental Walk at the Poca United Methodist Church. · Bass Tournament · 10 a.m.: Heritage Day Parade 11 a.m.: Boogie Brothers · Band to perform at the stage by the library · 11 a.m. Taranda Greene to perform at Gatens Harding Funeral Home lot · 1 p.m.: Fireman's Rodeo at Poca Middle School field

Gearing up - The town is getting ready for the annual Poca Heritage Days. A large banner hovers above the town’s new welcome sign. Photo by Justin Waybright · 2 p.m.: The Grass Stains to perform at the stage by the library · 4 p.m.: Poca High School Band competition at the high school. (Fifteen bands are scheduled to perform). Ongoing Saturday Events · People's Quilt Display at Poca Library · Historical Society video and display at Gatens Harding Funeral Home · Wall of Honor at Poca Val-

ley Bank's grass lot, beside Poca Baptist Church · Sweet Adeline's and Main Attraction Barber Shop to perform throughout town · Magician Basil Smith to perform tricks throughout town Also, the town's apple cider press will offer tasty treats to residents. Gatens-Harding Funeral Home will honor servicemen and women with the Wall of Honor.

Haven of Rest Administrative Asst. Connie Reddington has helped develop the project. "This is my third year doing this, and it's for our future generation, because this is our heritage," she explained. "It's an honor to remember our past and respect our future for upcoming servicemen and women." Gatens-Harding Funeral Home also uses a custom float in the parade. This year, at the end of the parade, the town will honor veteran and POW Oris Rinehart. Raine realizes the importance of the annual event. "Everyone learns from the past," she said. "Kids need to remember the hard work done in the past years to establish this it's a gathering to remember the past." Area residents Jack Moody and Sheila Williamson created Poca Heritage Days in 1980. Their vision has stayed alive for more than three decades. In 2013, it continues to grow. For more information about this year's event, call Poca Town Hall at (304) 755-5482.
