Carjacking claims life of 78-year-old

EWISBURG — Vendors at the 29th annual Taste of Our Towns (TOOT) street festival set up their booths under a light misting of rain Saturday morning, but by the time food sales began, the drizzle had departed and the sun was peeking through the clouds. Crowds once again thronged the streets of Lewisburg, as luscious aromas wafted from outdoor booths offering everything from cookies and caramel apples to turkey tenderloin sandwiches and bitesized pepperoni rolls. When the vendors opened for business at 11 a.m., lines had already begun to form at some of the more popular

One man is dead after being shot in a Friday carjacking in Arnett. Emergency dispatchers received a call just before 6 p.m. Friday reporting a shooting and carjacking on Saxon Bolt Road in Arnett. The caller said an unidentified 78-year-old man was shot in the back with a .22-caliber rifle while inside his 2005 silver Toyota Corolla and left in the roadway. The shooter took the victim’s car and drove off toward Bolt, the report said. Raleigh County sheriff’s deputies and West Virginia State Police responded to the scene. The victim was transported to Raleigh General Hospital, where he later died from his injuries, according to a press release from the Raleigh County sheriff’s office.

Candlelight Vigil honors victims of domestic violence In the past year, 23 people killed in W.Va. By Brandi Underwood REGISTER-HERALD REPORTER

CHRIS HANCOCK/FOR THE REGISTER-HERALD.

Tonia Thomas and her son, Tate, of Belle, participate in the Women’s Resource Center candlelight vigil Saturday at The Place. Thomas’ sister was killed in Raleigh County in 2012.

The soft glow of candlelight illuminated the faces of several community members at Saturday night’s Women’s Resource Center 23rd annual Candlelight Vigil, as the 23 victims lost to domestic violence in West Virginia in the past year were honored by name and candle flame. As October marks Domestic Violence Awareness Month, WRC Director Patricia Bailey said the purple ribbons pinned on the blouses, blazers and lapels of every individual in attendance served a crucial purpose. “Awareness is key to ending domestic violence,” she said. “It’s very

important to pay tribute to those who have lost their lives in West Virginia as a result of domestic violence, as well as celebrate those who have survived.” The event left many attendees with a heavy heart, especially after the keynote speaker, Erica Hamb, of Beckley, recounted the story of her mother, Theresa Wilson, who died from domestic abuse in 2012. Wilson, who grew up with an abusive father, was a victim of violence from even her youngest years, Hamb said. Hamb attributes the abusive actions that occurred in the beginning of Wilson’s life as the cause of the endless cycle of domestic violence that continued in her life until her untimely death. For that reason, she cited programs like the Women’s Resource Center as being highly beneficial See VIGIL, 8A

“The Clothesline Project,” above, a way for victims and family members of domestic violence victims to express their feelings through decorating a T-shirt, was on display Saturday evening in The Place as part of the 23rd annual Candlelight Vigil sponsored by the Women’s Resource Center. Below, those lost to domestic violence in the last year were honored by name and candle flame.

VIGIL Continued from 1A for children and women like her mother, where they can seek help and protection. “It may or may not help survivors or victims’ families cope, but I think that this event helps them to know that they are not alone,” said Bailey. “Other people and families have experienced this too, and other people care about their situation and their loss.” Bailey said that onethird of all homicides in West Virginia are related to domestic violence, and more than twothirds of women murdered in West Virginia are killed by a family or household member. Although typically West Virginia ranks around 15th on the list of domestic violence cases by state, this year, West Virginia ranked eighth. “That is not a statistic that we would like to see continue,” Bailey said. “During the 2012-2013 fiscal year, the Women’s Resource Center, which

serves Raleigh, Fayette, Nicholas and Summers counties, worked with 3,226 domestic violence victims; 533 of those victims were children,” Bailey said. As part of the ceremony, the WRC awarded several Incite Hope Awards to community members who have gone out of their way to combat and spread awareness of the domestic violence issue. This year’s Incite Hope Award winners included Beckley Police Detective Morgan Bragg, the Nicholas County Bureau of Child and Family (CPS), Oak Hill Police Chief Michael W. Whisman Jr., Summers

Court and Church streets during the oneday festival. Watching the crowds grow Saturday morning, Carnegie Hall executive director Susan Adkins was happy to see the clouds begin to clear, knowing rainy weather and street festivals don’t really mix. “We would love lots and lots of people here this year, eating lots of good food and having a great time,” Adkins said. “If that happens, all of these vendors will make plenty of money for their causes, and Carnegie will benefit as well.” Adkins pointed out that 75 percent of the money taken in at each booth goes to the vendor, with the remaining 25 percent staying with Carnegie Hall, a regional arts hub for which TOOT is the biggest fundraising event of the year. “We are so appreciative of all of the help we receive from our volunteers and from the city, as well as all of the vendors,” Adkins said. “With everyone pulling together, TOOT will continue to be one of the region’s largest festivals and a true community event.” ■■■ Manning Chapter V PEO’s booth and selling hot dogs and what she described as “church-baked” cookies, Pat Baker has volunteered in one capacity or another at every TOOT festival over the

past 29 years and at a smaller-scale forerunner of TOOT before that. Baker explained that Chapter V (and, yes, that is the letter V, not the Roman numeral 5) uses its share of the booth’s proceeds to help five scholarship programs, ranging from one that benefits graduating high school seniors to one that funds Ph.D.-level studies. At the other end of the festival experience scale, the fledgling Greenbrier Valley Dance Academy participated in its first TOOT this year. Volunteer Dickie Dixon, whose daughter Reid is an academy student, noted the money raised at their booth will go toward paying travel and costume expenses, as well as funding scholarships for aspiring students whose family budgets might not otherwise permit them to join. A former professional dancer, Emily Tighe is the academy’s founder and instructor, Dixon said. The academy boasts more than 20 students, ranging in age from “middle tot” to age 18 and beyond, with the recent addition of an adult ballet class. As well as selling assorted sweet treats and water to raise funds, the young dancers entertained festival-goers with an afternoon performance Saturday in front of Carnegie Hall.

WVU seeks help for fall-prevention study MORGANTOWN (AP) — West Virginia University is looking for faith-based groups in three southern West Virginia counties to participate in a physical activity program. The WVU Department of Orthopaedics is looking for 10 groups in McDowell, Mercer and Wyoming counties for the second phase of a study on reducing falls. The physical activity program was established to improve bal-

ance and reduce falls in older adults using gentle and self-paced exercises. The program can improve quality of life, muscle strength, sleep, flexibility and balance. The study will eventually enroll 240 men and women in the 16-week exercise class. Participants must be over age 65. Information will be collected from the participants at the start and finish of the class and after a 16-week follow-up.

the French Department at Greenbrier East High School — set up their booth as a “cookie walk,” encouraging patrons to fill a bag with their favorites. “The students baked all of the cookies, using the facilities at Greenbrier East,” French instructor Liz Daigle noted with pride. “They worked on their baking after school. It was very much a student project.” The department’s French-USA Exchange arranges for students here and in France to travel to each other’s countries. Just beside the French Department’s booth, the Corbin Story Fund offered an array of tiny fruit-topped cream tarts, all created by fund founder Ruth Caruthers and her helpers. Established just this year, the Corbin Story Fund is a tribute to Caruthers’ son, Corbin Walker Caruthers, who died at the age of 3 months as a result of heart defects. With the fund, Caruthers hopes to build on the legacy she began by lobbying for “Corbin’s Bill,” legislation adopted last year that requires every West Virginia newborn to be screened for heart defects before leaving the hospital. “A percentage of the money we raise here at TOOT will go to education, awareness and support for other hurt families and those who have lost children to heart defects,” she explained. “Another portion will go to heart defect research through the Children’s Heart Foundation.” For more information, visit thecorbinstory.com online.

The public is invited to a Tuesday through Friday series of workshops for the City of Beckley’s Comprehensive Plan to focus on downtown, New River Park, transportation and neighborhoods. Poggemeyer Design Group, the city’s comprehensive plan consultant, heard input from residents, community leaders and business owners Sept. 19 about the challenges Beckley faces, but these focused workshops aim to provide solutions to those challenges. Steering Committee Chairwoman Ann Worley said these intense focus groups will give Beckley citizens an opportunity to individually be heard in a small group setting. “Don’t be afraid to come out and present your ideas, visions and concerns,” Worley said. “We need and Worley want your input.” Representatives from Poggemeyer, Land Use I USA and Land Design Studios will facilitate the workshops, which will all be held at the UC-Beckley John W. Eye Conference Center. The downtown workshop will be held Tuesday starting at 1 p.m. and will focus on downtown districts, pedestrian connectors between UC-Beckley and downtown, upper floor utilization, development opportunities, maximizing the Beckley Intermodal Gateway project, parking issues, design regulations and creating a downtown image. Dan Bickey, owner of McBee’s Irish Pub, said he is asking everyone to come out and voice their opinions about the downtown area during this meeting. “I’m trying to help downtown,” Bickey said. “I’m hoping we have a really good turnout to support uptown.

New master plan expected to expand W.Va. Capitol campus THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHARLESTON — A new master plan for West Virginia’s Capitol Complex proposes six new office buildings, three new parking facilities and more green space to alleviate overcrowding and make the campus more visitor-friendly. The 30-year plan also includes security recommendations but most have been redacted from the public version, the Charleston Gazette reported.

A legislative building is among the proposed new structures. It would house the House of Delegates’ offices and committee rooms, and offices for Legislative Services and Joint Committee staff. Most of the proposed buildings would be five stories and have underground parking. The first three buildings would be constructed east of the existing complex on Washington Street. See CAPITOL, 13A

Murder suspect likely knew victim, Raleigh sheriff says By Jessica Farrish REGISTER-HERALD REPORTER

It’s likely the suspect in the Oct. 11 murder of a 77-year-old Dameron man knew his victim, Raleigh County Sheriff’s Department officials reported Thursday. The sheriff’s office said that the victim, Johnny Nile Condia, had agreed to meet with the suspect, Mickey Roger Daniel Jr., 29, of Edwight. Although police initially believed that Daniel had acted with an accomplice to carjack Condia’s vehicle, further investigation showed Daniel acted alone, police also reported Thursday. Daniel had apparently intended to rob Condia when the shooting oc-

curred, according to a press release. Police reported Daniel shot Condia while the older man was inside his vehicle on Saxon Bolt Road in Arnett. Daniel took Condia’s 2005 Toyota Corolla, leaving Condia lying in the roadway, according to a release. Condia was transported to Raleigh General Hospital where he later died from his injuries. The incident remains under investigation. A preliminary hearing for Daniel will be held Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. before Magistrate Richard Jones. Daniel is being held without bond at Southern Regional Jail.
