Grubb
signs plea
bargain
agreement
Jordan Grubb entered
into a plea bargain agreement last week. That
agreement, with Special
Prosecuting Attorney Robert B. Revercomb of
Kanawha County, stems
from charges brought, by
an indictment, during the
most recent term of the
Braxton County Grand
Jury. Grubb was charged
with feloniously attempting to cause injury and loss
to a person.
Grubb signed the plea
agreement in Circuit
Court on Wednesday. He
pled guilty to the felony offense of attempted retaliating against a witness as
contained in the indictment.
In return for the
defendant’s plea of guilty,
the State agreed not to
prosecute the defendant for
the felony offense of Retaliating Against a Witness
relating to charges involving a vehicle chase. Further the Special Prosecuting Attorney will recommend that the sentence
imposed as a result of the
plea be served concurrent
with the sentence Grubb is
already serving, without
credit for time served.
Grubb’s
mother
Carolyn D. Cruickshanks
was indicted on similar
charges stemming from
the same incident by the
same Grand Jury.

Emergency responders were summoned to an
Exchange address at approximately 5:30 p.m. Saturday, February 16 for an
accidental shooting. According to State Police, a
243 riffle discharged by 6
year old, struck his 12 year
old brother in the abdomen.

treated the youth at the
scene. A HealthNet helicopter set down in a field
near the residence to
transfer the patient to a

while undergoing surgery
later that night.
Authorities have not
released the names of
those involved. The victim
was a student at Braxton
County Middle School.

Jury finds former Deputy guilty
A two day trail in
Braxton County Circuit
Court has resulted in the
conviction of a former
Braxton County Sheriff’s
Deputy on charges related
to falsifying accounts to
obtain money under false
pretenses.
Christopher Shane
Dellinger was facing seven
counts related to falsifying
accounts. He was indicted
in October 2007, after a
State Police investigation
accused him of making
false entries of hours
worked on a DUI grant provided by the West Virginia
Commission on Drunk
Driving. Those entries allegedly resulted in the officer obtaining pay for
hours that he did not actually work between August
10 and November 20, 2005.
Sgt. C. F. Trader of the
West Virginia State Police
was the lead investigator
on the case.
Jury selection began
on Tuesday, February 11
in the court room of
Judge
Richard
A.
Facemire. Mark Hudnell
of Summersville served
as special prosecutor assigned to the case. Barbara Shamburger and
Mike Clifford represented
the defendant.
The jury heard testi-
mony from several witnesses, including State
Police officers, Deputies
and character witnesses,
before retiring for deliberation on Thursday at approximately 3:00 p.m. The
jury returned their verdict
of guilty on four of the
charges when open court
resumed, two and one half
hours later. Dellinger was
exonerated on the three
remaining charges.
Judge Facemire ordered a pre-sentence investigation. Sentencing
is set for May 20. The
charges carry a one to ten
year jail term on each
count. Dellinger could
face up to 40 years in
prison, plus fines, restitution and court costs.
The defendant was allowed to remain free, on
previously posted bond,
until the sentencing.

emergency personnel pay raise
The County Commission granted a pay raise to
full and part time employees of the county run ambulance service at their
last meeting. On the heels
of a similar request by
Emergency Services Director Fred Thompson that
granted 9-1-1 full-time dispatchers a $1,040 year
raise, EMS workers will
receive a similar pay hike
as a result of action taken
at last Friday’s regular
meeting of the Braxton
County Commission.
Under questioning by
Commission President
Mike Chapman, Thompson
said that local ambulance
personnel receive “top dollar” compared to surrounding counties. Chapman
asked if the EMS Advisory
Board held a meeting and
was recommending the
same. Thompson said the
meeting was held with one
member on a speaker
phone. He added that the
pay raise was the only matter considered at the time.
When it was mentioned
that Evelyn Post indicated
that she was not notified of
the meeting, Thompson
stated that she was not part
of the board. It was later
determined that Post had
been legally appointed to
the EMS Advisory Board by
the Commission but did
not serve on the 9-1-1 Advisory Board.
Chapman said that
with the budget process
starting in one month why
was the request being considered now? Terry Frame
and Thompson also clarified that the EMS, like 91-1 personnel, would not
receive any additional
raises that might be given
other county employees in
the upcoming budget.
Chapman asked if the employees had been surveyed
to determine if they preferred the raise now or
wanted to be considered
with other county employees. Thompson said he had
not surveyed all the employees of the ambulance
service.
Thompson distributed
a paper that illustrated the
pay package for full-time
employees before and after
the proposed 50 cents per
hour raise. That document
showed that the highest
paid medic’s new base salary will be $49,465.46 per
year which includes benefits, but not overtime. The
lowest paid full time employees’ (an ambulance
driver)
compensation
package will be $29,193.55
per year. Medic’s salaries
range from $15.10 to
$13.05 per hour (before
raise). Drivers and/or
EMT/s were making from
$9.05 to 12.30 per hour.
Following the lengthy discussion Terry Frame made
a motion to approve the requested raise. David Jack
seconded the action which
passed over the objection of
Mike Chapman.
Chapman requested

A weekly photo of opinion in Braxton County...
sometimes good and sometimes not so good.
By Ed Given
Some common sense at last…
Health care shortage...
It looks like common sense has finally prevailed with the State Public Service Commission. I
read this week, in the Charleston Gazette, that the
PSC has rescinded their order to geographically
split the State with a new area code for phone
numbers. According to the newspaper, new area
codes will now be assigned when new phone numbers are requested.
I also saw a news article that questioned the
need for a new area code. As I mentioned previously, I’m not convinced that such a need is on the
horizon. If it is, is that need as immediate as some
have perceived?
I believe the PSC implemented the plan they
initially chose, simply because they could. They
didn’t really care how many people they inconvenienced nor how much it would cost them. Only
when the uproar came, did they react. Such actions
exemplify how out of touch the PSC is with the
people of this state. They are no more a Public
Service representative than big oil is.
A good idea…
Becky Skidmore and two members of Braxton
County High School’s National Honor Society,
Samantha Moyers and Nicholas Amos, were at last
Friday’s Commission meeting. As outlined in the
story pertaining to the meeting, the group has
taken on a major project. They want to build a
running track at Holly Gray Park for the public and
High School’s use. It is a lofty goal. However, the
students seem to have recognized that fact and are
proceeding anyway. They know their project won’t
be completed overnight. They know they can’t do it
alone. I applaud their initiative and their enthusiasm. A running track is long overdue. Even without,
what most would consider an essential element like
a track, we have seen Braxton County athletes
make quite a mark for themselves and their school
in state competitions. How much better could it be
if they had a place to practice?
In addition, our central location would attract
lots of area and state competitions. Such events
provide a substantial boost for the economy. I was
glad to see the Commission endorse the concept.
Now if others will get on the band wagon…. Who
knows what will happen.
Pandora’s box….
Speaking of the Commission… I would be remiss
if I didn’t point out the obvious. Now we have given
EMS employees a pay raise. Again, I’m not against
these people having more money. For the most part
hey work hard and they deserve it. However, it was
interested to hear Fred Thompson say this county was
paying “top dollar” for these positions. First of all, I
don’t quite understand how a county our size can
afford to pay “top dollar.” Secondly, if that is the case,
why do we require such huge amounts of overtime?
It was obvious, from the sheet Thompson passed
out in the meeting, that being a medic, EMT or
ambulance driver is a pretty good paying job by
Braxton County standards. With a medic pay package approaching $50,000, including benefits, and
the shortage that is indicated, more young people
should consider such a career move. Granted, most
of these jobs, except a driver, require additional
education. But then again, most career opportunities have such requirements. If I were young, and
wanted to make Braxton County my home, I would
be looking into the field. I just hope the County will
continue to be committed to the program when they
have to start using tax dollars to pay part of the bill.
That day will come. It’s just a matter of when?

Horror of mass school shooting;
Super delegates; McCain??
Raising two sons and three stepchildren who finished public school
long ago, I always felt my children
were safe from being wounded or killed
at school. Maybe it was a fantasy, but
one felt that school was a safe place. It
strikes fear to one’s soul for grandchildren and great grandchildren to think
of shootings on campuses. We see
those who are mentally ill and not
taking their medicine, or just someone one on some kind of drug walk in
and mow down several with no way to
stop them till they are killed or kill
themselves. I have wondered if the
publicity about such happenings
causes other sick persons to act in the
same way. When these shootings
happen, it does something to all of us.
Even sympathy for the families involved seems so inadequate. The
welcome effort to put more protection
in place docannot compensate for their
loss. Hopefully detection of disturbed
students will be improved.
I woke this morning from a nightmare, dreaming that the Democratic
candidate would be chosen by the
“superdelegates,” not the people. This
system was set up back in 1980 when
the belief was that Democratic Party
leaders and elected officials were not
having enough influence on the
selection. Some 800 people will be
superdelegates at the 2008 convention
News from
our Capitol
by Delegate Brent Boggs
The past weekend was a
good break before we hit the
final three weeks of the regular session. Even though I
didn’t get home until late
Friday night, Saturday was
productive in cleaning up the
garage, doing a little yard work
and hanging some drywall.
This was a welcome break
before the final legislative push
begins this week. The best part
was a long conversation with
grandson Collin, who gave us a
complete rundown of all his
activities last week.
So far this session, there
have been 1,901 bills introduced during the 2008 session:
1,219 bills introduced in the
House of Delegates; and in the
Senate, there have been 682
bills introduced. The Senate
has passed 21 Senate Bills to
date for the House to consider.
Meanwhile, the House of
Delegates has passed a total of
48 House Bills which have
been sent to the Senate.
Overall, six bills have been
passed by both bodies and have
completed legislative action.
These bills now await the
action of the Governor.
Beginning Monday, February 18, the House will begin
two-a-day floor sessions, leaving committees and going to
the Chamber for work in the
morning and evening. This will
allow committee reports and
Senate messages to be received during the evening
session, thereby accelerating
the pace. The last day for bills
to clear their house of origin is
Day 50, which is February 27.
This does not apply to resolutions and a few other bill
categories.
Here are the important
dates to remember as the
session enters the final three
weeks:
Forty-first Day - February
18, 2008: Last day to introduce
bills in the Senate and House.
This does not apply to originating or supplementary appropriation bills. This does not
and they could actually swing the
nomination away from what a majority
of the voters wanted. This system is
harmless as long as someone has
emerged as the clear leader by convention time. Naturally, most of the
superdelegates will support that candidate. But in a close race like we have
this year, the fundamentally undemocratic nature of this system is plain to
see. It should be eliminated.
The Republican march to the
White House continues with some
strange quirks happening. Romney
threw in the towel and endorsed
McCain. With Huckabee’s numbers not
that high, it looks like McCain will get
the nomination. Remember the charge
against Kerry was that he was a flipflopper on the issues. Now we see
McCain, who has been such an outspoken opponent of the torture technique
of water boarding, voting against a bill to
ban it. Anything to stay in the good
graces of the hard-line elements of his
party. The Republican debates have
emphasized the need for change, but
have provided no real ideas for bringing
about sane government. Just the same
ole same ole.

Dear Editor,
Our state faces a

That’s not good.
Research has consistently shown that without the family physicians who help you stay
healthy, take care of
when you get sick, and
work with you to manage a chronic health
problem, you have a
greater chance or being
hospitalized, developing
potentially life-threatening problems and even
shortening your
lifespan.
What are so many
counties doing without
enough primary care
physicians. The answer
is complex, but a major
contributor is the way
we pay primary care
doctors for the services
they provide.
Doctors’ offices are
vital to their communities, but they also are
businesses that must
generate enough income to keep their doors
open. For seven years,
since 2000 when family
doctors saw an average
of 7 percent drop in their
businesses income,
federal Medicare policy
has been driving existing primary care doctors
offices out of business
and discouraging medical students from choosing a family medicine
career. For seven years,
annual changes in
Medicare reimbursement have either stagnated or dropped from
the previous year. For
seven years, Medicare
reimbursement to
physicians has failed to
match inflation. In fact,
the average practice
revenue for primary
doctors plummeted 21
percent in 2005, according to a Medical Economics survey. And although
family doctors saw a 2
percent Medicare reimbursement increase in
2006, annual inflation

hearings and legislation is
beginning to move through the
committee. Most notable last
week was HB 4496, the long
awaited Governor’s bill to
address the Teacher’s Retirement issue. The House
promptly amended the legislation in the Pensions and
Retirement Committee and
Finance Committee to change
an unacceptable bill as introduced into one that both
teacher organizations support.
The bill will be considered in
the House early this week and
sent to the Senate for their
action. Once this bill is out of
the House, numerous other
bills will begin to move rapidly.
Meanwhile, the Finance
Committee is moving a couple
dozen legislative rules bills,
advancing them to the Judiciary Committee for their
action. These include HB 4257

that year was 2.5 percent.
And what’s worse,
most major insurers use
Medicare’s calculation
to determine what they
pay your doctor. No matter which way family physicians turn, they cannot
generate the business
income they need to
keep their doors open.
This year, Medicare
will make the problem
worse. Without Congressional action this spring,
federal health policy will
require a 10.6 percent
cut in Medicare’s physician
reimbursement
rates on July 1.
We’ve heard about
this before. That’s because, each year, Congress fails to change the
Medicare formula. Instead, they choose temporary band-aides that
postpone the inevitable.
That approach allows
Congress the luxury of
short-term planning. But
it worsens the uncertainty for Medicare beneficiaries. Elderly and disabled patients do not have
short-term health issues.
They cope with an average of five chronic conditions that, if not properly
treated and monitored,
can cascade into lifethreatening complications. Without a stable
Medicare system on which
doctors can predict revenues, these elderly and
disabled people cannot be
certain their physician
will be open for business
when they need medical
care.
You can do something about it. Congress
needs to hear from you.

and
Samantha Moyers, NHS
President, who explained
their proposed project.
They said the project would
have to be community
based due to the cost. They
told that they had already
contacted state and national representatives to
request funding. They
asked that the Commissions endorse the project to
make it more appealing
for grants. Terry Frame
said her group would look
for possible funding in the
upcoming budget process.
Romie Spencer addressed the Commission
concerning the annual Elk
River Cleanup. He stated
that his group plans to undertake the project again
this summer and requested that the Commission consider assisting the
endeavor as they had in
the past, with a $2,500 allocation.
Spencer also requested that gravel be
placed on the road to the
County’s communications
tower located at Deer Run
Estates. Terry Frame made
a motion to purchase the
necessary gravel and pay
for the same from the 9-11 fund.
Sue Marple, Mayor of

Commission assist her
town with the purchase of
a new police vehicle. The
Mayor requested $4,960, or
any portion there of, toward
the acquisition. Terry

Go Eagles...
Dear Ed;
Just a note to recognize the teams of the
Braxton County High
School sports programs
and those who pull together to make these seasons such a positive success. As a local radio guy,
I have the pleasure of producing many of the games
and hearing the accomplishments on the fields
and courts from these
dedicated young people.
To the community,
the
parents,
the
coaches, the fans, the
sponsors who bring the
games to those via radio,
the print media, to my
supervisors at the station for having the vision
to solidly support the
broadcast of these games
and to Steve Sanders and
John David Jordan for
the call each week, I say
thank you.
To these dedicated
young people who work
very hard, ride the athletic bus late at night
and keep their grades up,
I say congratulations to
each of you. You bring
great credit upon yourselves, your families,
your team, your school
and your communities.
As a sports fan, you all
have brought us many
enjoyable games, and
we’re very proud of you.
And, to my hometown buddy, Eagles senior Shawnna Pritt, congratulations on the huge
milestone of one thousand points. You are certainly one outstanding
young lady, Shawnna,
and are a walking testimony to hard work and
doing things as they
should be done. It is obvious that you simply
have nothing standing
in your way to realize
your dreams.
Go Eagles! Each of
you truly rock.

We’re also awaiting
Judiciary Committee action on HB 2564 – the
Castle Doctrine Act, authorizing the use of force, including deadly force,
against an intruder or attacker. This is the same
as Senate Bill 31, and is
similar to HB 2734 and HB
2264.
I appreciate the number of visitors that take
time each year to visit the
Capitol during the session.
In an informal conversation with House Speaker
Rick Thompson early last
week, he was most complimentary of the large number of visitors from Gilmer
and Braxton Counties each
week, including the number of students and pages
that attend and participate.
I look forward to
keeping you informed,
along with receiving your
comments and suggestions. Now that the session is underway, please
address your correspondence to the Capitol office

Charleston, WV 25305.
The office telephone number is 340-3280 or 3403364 and fax number:

Mike Chapman seeks
Magistrate seat
My name is Mike
Chapman and I am announcing my candidacy for
one to the two positions for
Magistrate. The Magistrate Court is a vital part
of our judicial system. In
my opinion, I can best
serve you and your family,
as a magistrate court
judge.
I have been married
to Mary Chapman for 28
years and have two sons,
Michael and Justin. We
are a Christian Family and
members of the Gassaway
Baptist Church. My parents are Calvin and Barba
Chapman. After graduating
from Braxton County High
School in 1974, I attended
and graduated from
Glenville State College,
with a degree in business
administration, accounting and finance. I have
been a Dairy Queen operator and business owner for
the past 21 years.
I served our children
for ten years as a Braxton
County Board of Education
member and currently
serve the people of Braxton
County (2005-present), as
a Braxton County Commissioner.
My promise to you and
your family is the following:
1. To govern with
ethical and appropriate
conduct.
2. To use good judgment and always act in a
manner of high moral
standards and integrity.
3. To always treat everyone with fairness and
respect.
4. To avoid any impropriety in all my activities.
5. To uphold the Judicial Code of Conduct in performing my duties as an officer of the court.
Our legal system is
based on fair, competent
interpretation and application of the law. Further-
more, I believe this judicial
office is one based on public trust and I will always
strive to maintain the public confidence in our judicial system.
In closing, I want to
thank everyone for the confidence and expectations
placed in me during the
past several elections.
Hard work and long hours
are the expectations of any
public servant. I am ready
for this new challenge.
Thank you and I look forward to meeting with as
many of you as possible in
the coming months along
the campaign trail.

second consecutive year.
This Award of Excellence is
presented to Medicare-certified agencies whose performance measures are

award in 2006 was commendable; to be recognized
again in 2007 is outstanding,” states Barbara Allen,
BCMH Board of Directors
Chairperson. Only a select
few home healthcare agencies in West Virginia were
named to the 2007
HomeCare Elite indicating
the level of accomplishment
achieved by BCMH Home
Health.

injuries and later released.
Long was also taken to
the local medical facility. He

PAT’S CHAT
I am
writing
this
on
Valentine’s
evening
because I
will be going to my
brother’s
in Pennsylvania next week. We
had a lovely day at Brushy
Fork Christian School – we
saw a film with the story of
St. Valentine for worship
this morning, had a party
in the afternoon and it
warmed up enough to play
dodge ball outside later in
the afternoon. Everyone
had lots of fun, but we were
sorry that Taylor Simmons
is still sick and missed it.
We missed her.
It is hard to believe
that my two kindergarten
children are starting to do
math, can read many
things on their own, and
amaze me with the things
they are learning. This
learning occurs in spite of
our field trips and parties.
I am including a picture of
the trip to Canaan for tubing, the visit to Sweet Life
Bakery where Lynn Suder
and her helpers, Cheryl
Light
and
Loretta
Courtney, showed us wonderful confections and how
they are made, and the trip
next door to the bakery to
Nature’s Hideout where
Paul Thrain and Kristy
Aldridge showed the children so many interesting
animals and reptiles! I
wish I could include pictures of everything, but
that is impossible. I am
including only three, and it
was so difficult to choose.
You will enjoy it if you
make a visit to the Sweet
Life Bakery and its wonderful aromas on 34 N.
Kanawha Street and also
the exotic sights next door
at Nature’s Hideout! (I
hope your paper can include the pictures.)
Chuck Illnecke of
Ripley died this week. He
was the husband of the late
Virginia (Mick), formerly of
Caleb Heckert with his tube at Canaan.
BY PAT RIDPATH
Morgantown, and beloved
son-in-law of Arlie and
Myrtle (Whytsell) Mick, formerly of Sabraton. Arlie is
related to the Hawkins
family of Burnsville and
Myrtle was sister to my
grandmother,
Goldie
(Whytsell)
McNemar.
Chuck played the guitar
like no one else! He will
be greatly missed by his
daughters, Carol, Charlotte and Vickie, and the
grandchildren.
Remember to let me
know if you want your piano tuned. I hope to help
get
the
piano
at
Buckhannon Manor tuned.
Would you help, too? When
we met with them last
week, I got to visit with
Hazel Davidson a little as
she waited for one of us to
get out of her parking
space. Their parking is
very limited, so our group
will have to be more careful in the future to park
ONLY in Visitor’s spaces or
out on the street. Ms.
Davidson is a charming
lady who writes news from
the Manor. Some of the
residents from there are
eager to get oranges,
grapefruit, or tangerines
from our Brushy Fork
Christian School’s fruit
program. If you are interested in this fruit, call me
at 472-5102 or Sheri-Lyn
Sapp at 472-4848.
I got an email from
Debra K. Godfrey telling us
that Robert S. Godfrey, formerly of Burnsville, has
been relocated to Georgia
with the Army. His new address is 57 South Middle
Ground Road #82, Hunter
Army Airfield, GA 31409.
He is the son of Debra A.
Godfrey, formerly of
Burnsville, now of Weston,
and the late Robert W.
Godfrey. Robert and his
wife, Anna (Lumbert), are
the proud parents of Jordan
Godfrey of Virginia and
Robert’s three step-children, Jasmine, Matthew,
and Brendan Curuthers.
The local family wishes
Happy Birthday in March to
Matthew (Mar. 8), Roy C.
Godfrey of Atwater, OH,
(Mar. 2) and a very special
Braxton County, WV
friend, Frank Seelbach
(Mar. 6).
I have lost several
email addresses, so if you
read this Chat and have
not heard from me, please
write me so you will get
back in my address book!
Thanks.
Maranatha!

This week’s recipe is

Glazed Baked Ham
You can use whatever
kind of ham you wish for
this recipe.
Glaze:
½ cup dark brown
sugar
1 teaspoon yellow
mustard
¾ cup orange juice
Whole cloves
Pineapple slices and/
or maraschino cherries
(optional)
Score top of ham using diagonal cuts about 1
inch apart and about 1
inch into meat. Insert 1
clove into each square (or
less if desired). Place in
roasting pan and set in preheated oven. Stir together
the brown sugar, mustard
and orange juice. Brush all
over top of ham. Roast according to above time, basting with pan juices and additional glaze every 20 minutes. If desired, place pineapple slices with cherries
in center, secured with
toothpicks, on top for final
hour or so of roasting. Remove from oven; let rest for
at least 20 minutes before
slicing.
Candied Sweet Potatoes
8 medium (3 pounds)
sweet potatoes
1/3 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup firmly packed
brown sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons brandy,
orange juice or mixture of
both
Preheat oven to 350°
F. Cook potatoes in water
until tender. Drain and
cool. Peel and cut in half
lengthwise. Place in shallow baking dish large
enough to hold one layer.
Melt butter and combine
with remaining ingredients, stirring until sugar is
dissolved. Pour over potatoes. Bake, turning once
and basting with sauce,
until hot, about 20 minutes.
Note: Potatoes and
butter mixture can be
placed in large skillet and
heated on top of stove instead of in oven.

Christopher Shortall,
who is serving our great
country in Iraq, is home visiting his family for 2 weeks.
I know his family is very
happy to have him home, if
even for just 2 weeks.
Please remember Christopher and all of the other soldiers serving our country in
Iraq and Afghanistan in your
prayers.
Recent visitors in our
home
were
Carissa
Hughes, Shylo Pierson,
Luke Robinson and Dustin
Miller. Dustin surprised us
on Saturday when he
brought his wife, Cassie
and their beautiful 4 month
old
son,
Jeremiah
Alexander, to visit us. I have
known Dustin ever since
he was born. He and Ryan
have been friends all of
their lives. So, needless to
say, it is very hard for me to
imagine him a father. To
me, he is still a little boy!
Ha! Alex is an absolutely
adorable baby!! He looks like
both of his parents, but I
think more like his daddy.
I was so happy to see them.
They are a wonderful new
family. Mommy and Daddy
are very proud of their little
bundle of joy. They were
positively glowing. God
Bless you and best wishes!

Touch-screen voting machines, more
information about how they operate

In recent months,
several news reports have
raised questions about the
trustworthiness of touchscreen voting devices
manufactured by Election
Systems & Software
(ES&S). The scrutiny
arises from reports issued
by a handful of states barring the further use of
ES&S devices in their elections.
Since ES&S voting
machines are used in 34
West Virginia counties, I
feel compelled to address
this issue and clarify several points in regard to
their accuracy and reliability. As Secretary of State, I
am personally devoted to
the premise of fair, accurate and trustworthy elections in our state. After
carefully and thoroughly
reviewing the reports issued by these other states,
I remain confident that our
current voting technology
will provide voters in West
Virginia with dependable
and accurate voting results.
The fact is, so-called
“problems” that have been
widely reported about ES&S
voting machines, including optical scan and precinct counting machines,
have never been evidenced in actual balloting
by voters participating in
any elections. Put another
way, to my knowledge
these machines have
never been hacked on
Election Day, and no votes
have been tampered with
at anytime in any election.
Rather, all of the issues
reported in the press have
come as a result of “tests”
conducted in a few states,
tests which varied widely
in their method and con-
trols.
The conditions under
which Ohio and Colorado
conducted their tests simply do not mirror the actual
conditions present in an
election precinct, and they
do not reflect the measures
in place before, during and
after an election to ensure
votes are cast and counted
properly.
For example, in Colorado, state elections officials claimed that a magnet held close to the device
caused a failure in operation. But when county officials in Mesa County, Colorado, tried to duplicate
those tests, they encountered no problems at all.
A recent news story in
The (Grand Junction) Daily
Sentinel reported on the
Mesa County tests as follows: “Thursday’s mock
election conducted by the
Mesa County Clerk’s Elections Division, with its decertified ES&S electronic
vote machines, went off
without a hitch. Try as
they might, elections officials could not reproduce
the problems that led Colorado Secretary of State
Mike Coffman to decertify
the county’s voting machines recently.” (The Daily
Sentinel, Jan. 10, 2008)
West Virginia has
one of the most stringent
testing procedures in the
nation. State law requires
that the machines be subjected to a pre-test, a public test, an Election Day
test, and a test prior to
canvass. Security measures required by statute
and those developed by my
office will protect against
the concerns, however remote, identified in these
reports.
Elections are always
subject to corruption and
error. Long before the advent of electronic voting
devices, parts of our state
were historically plagued
with election corruption. In
fact, the easiest ballots to
corrupt are paper ballots.
When individuals
take it upon themselves to
manipulate or corrupt an
election, they will, sadly,
often find ways to do so. But
I believe the electronic systems we have in place now
in West Virginia, which
include touch-screens as
well as optical scan and
precinct count machines,
make such efforts more
difficult than almost any
other method of voting.
What would be truly
irresponsible would be for
anyone to advocate decertification of the ES&S machines based on news reports, or testing that was
conducted under improperly controlled settings, or
complaints that are politically motivated. (Notably,
many states, including
South Carolina and neighboring states Virginia, Kentucky and Pennsylvania,
have used or plan to use
ES&S devices in their ’08
primaries.)
Responsible decision
making on this issue requires a consideration
only of sound, properly
controlled testing procedures, and actual election
conditions and results.
Under those criteria,
West Virginia voters can
be confident in the performance, integrity and accuracy of ES&S touch
screen voting machines.
Betty Ireland is West
Virginia’s Secretary of
State.

In looking to the future, Kubina said,” three
things will need to take
place if we are going to be
successful preparing students for 21st century careers.
1. Students are going
to have to assume responsibility for selecting both
academic and vocational
classes from a wide assortment of courses that will
be very specific for their
individual career pathway.
2. Teachers will have
to become more of a facilitator of learning rather
than a specialist in one
area such as math.
3. Resources will have
to be redirected toward providing technology required
for individual, specialized
training. Not just computer
technology but related

simulators, inter-active laser devices,
satellite communication
systems and
most importantly, direct

Lady Knights defeat Calhoun
to win CWVAC Championship
“There isn’t a more
deserving group of girls,”
coach Lauri Spencer remarked following the
Lady Knights’ 46-32 defeat of Calhoun in the
CWVAC championship
game played at the
Braxton County Armory
last Saturday. Spencer
continued, “They believed in themselves and
their team even when
others didn’t. It has been
a privilege to work with
these girls this season.
They have worked so
hard for me.”
In the championship game, the Lady
Knights were down 22-19
at halftime but came
back
to
outscore
Calhoun 27-13 in the
second half. Hunter
Sodaro scored 18 points
against Calhoun, and
Tyalor Bragg was also in
double figures with 10
points.
The Knights advanced to the championship game after a 33-31
win over arch-rival Clay
on Friday evening. Clay
had beaten Braxton by 11
points in both of the regular season games they
played. Coach Spencer explained her strategy for the
Clay game, “We knew we
had to play good defense if
we were going to win this
game. We changed things
up a little by putting more
pressure on their leading
scorers, and it worked.”
Spencer added, “I am so
proud of the heart that the
girls showed during this
game. It came right down
to the last shot, and we
were there to make it!”
After scoring only four
points against Clay in the
first half, the Lady Knights
came up with an 18-11
third quarter to tie the
game at 22-all going into
the fourth. In the fourth,
Coach Spencer’s girls managed the two-point difference that gave them the
game.
Once again, Sodaro
led the Knights’ scoring,
this time with 13 points.
Sodaro was voted MVP of
the tournament, and
Taylor Bragg and Montana Flint were named to
the
All-Tournament
team.
In pre-tournament
play, the Knights downed
Spencer 40-18 at Spencer on Feb. 9, and Glade
42-16 last Monday night
. Two Braxton players
scored in double figures
in the win over Spencer.
Sodaro led with 12 points
and Bragg added 10. With
14 points, Sodaro also
led the Knights’ scoring
against Glade.
The junior varsity
Knights defeated Glade’s
jv team 54-12 on Thursday night. The young
Lady Knights had two
strong quarters as they
scored 16 points in the
first and 20in the second.
Jamie Conrad scored 16
points and Chelsie
Huffman added 10 in that
win. Other jv scoring included Kayla Pritt with 4
points,
Jazmine
Valdivieso 6, Caitlin
Rhodes 6, Shawndee Neff
2, Cassidy James 4, and
Kirsten Terry 6.
Coach
Spencer
complimented the junior
varsity Lady Knights for
their work this season. “I
don’t know the lat time
that I have seen such a
good jv team. They have
been a joy to work with.
All season long, I’ve said
that our varsity had an
advantage over most varsity teams because our
jv team is such a good
team to practice against.
I expect good things from
these girls next year!

Ravenswood wins LKC Night of Champions game
“Turnovers in the first
half and poor defense on
staying on three-point
shooters and in the post”
were reasons Eagles’ coach
Rick Frame mentioned for
Ravenswood’s 70-56 win
over Braxton in the LKC
championship
game
played at the Armory last
Saturday night. The
Eagles turned the ball
over a total of 17 times,
the majority coming in
the first half, compared
to Ravenswood’s 8.
Ravenswood recorded 10
steals; Braxton had 4.
The Red Devils
scored 30 of their 70
points from the threepoint line and shot 52
percent overall from the
floor. The Eagles made 5
of 13 three-point attempts, and shot almost
43 percent from the floor.
Leading scorer for the
Eagles, Trey Chapman
had 20 points. Cord Metz,
also in double figures,
scored 11.
After a close game
during most of the first
quarter, Ravenswood
pulled away to lead by
seven going into the second and with a strong 24point second quarter advanced that lead to 12 at
halftime. The two teams
played evenly in the third
and Ravenswood held
only a two-point fourth-
quarter margin, but the
Eagles could not make up
the deficit.
As part of the Night
of Champions program, a
scholar athlete was
named for each school.
Braxton’s Ryan Rexroad
received the honor for
his school. Rexroad and
Chris Shuman competed
in
the
Three-Point
Shootout.
Coach
Frame
thanked Jason Lockard
and Derek Long for a pregame meal. He also
wants to thank the volunteers for helping with
the food and the threepoint shootout. These
include the girls’ basket-
ball players, boys’ junior
varsity and freshmen
squads, the Gassaway
Baptist Church and all
others who helped in any
way.
In an earlier game
last week, the Eagles
outscored Clay 64-57. In
that game, Metz scored 21
points while Chapman and
Rexroad each added 16.
Both Chapman and Metz
had double-doubles as
Chapman pulled down 15
rebounds and Metz 11.
The Eagles have two
more
regular-season
games, both road games.
On Wednesday they play at
Lincoln and on Friday they
travel to Nicholas.

Lady Eagles jv team ends successful
season with three wins and one loss
The Lady Eagles junior varsity squad ended a
successful 15-5 season
with three wins and one
loss. Braxton downed Oak
Hill 42-26 on Feb. 2, defeated Webster 36-17 on
Feb. 5, and won a second
game, this time 41-13,
over Webster last Monday night. On Tuesday
night,
Nicholas
outscored Braxton’s jv
girls 35-30.
Coach Jerry Frame
commented on the girls’
season. “I am very
pleased with what these
girls have done. They
worked very hard, and
they continued to improve as a team and as
individuals. I’m very
proud of them,” he said.
Dakota
Johnson
poured in 23 points to
lead Braxton in the win
over Oak Hill.
In the first win over
Webster, Brandi Miller
scored 14 points to pace
the Lady Eagles, and
Johnson added 11. The
second Webster game
saw Johnson and Miller
once again leading the
scoring as Johnson
scored 15 and Miller 13.
Braxton outrebounded
Webster in both games
and committed fewer
turnovers than their opponents.
Playing
against
Nicholas, the Lady Eagles
held a slim one-point
lead after the first quarter but found themselves
outscored 16-2 in the
second. Although they
outscored the Lady Grizzlies 17-9 in the second
half, it was too little, too
late for a comeback.

The lesson for this
meeting was on Arthritis
and the effects that it has
on the body. The word Arthritis means joint inflammation and refers to more
than 100 different diseases.
The disorder affects 30 million Americans, making it
the nation’s most prevalent
long-term chronic health
problem. One in every
seven people suffers from
arthritis; one in three
families.
Arthritis is a serious
disease that causes pain
and loss of movement. It
affects the movements
you rely on everyday activities. It is considered
to be chronic, meaning
that it can last on and off
for a lifetime. Although it
is primarily a joint disease, some varieties may
affect the internal organs, eyes and the skin.
The two most common forms of arthritis,
osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Early
signs of the disease is
swelling in one or more
joints, early morning
stiffness, reoccurring
pain or tenderness, inability to move a joint
normally, obvious redness warmth in a joint,
unexplained weight loss,
fever, or weakness combines with joint pain.
Symptoms such as these
that last more than two
weeks.
What causes arthritis? Except for a few
kinds of arthritis, no one
knows for sure what
causes the disease.
Treatment; since there is
no known cure, treatment is aimed at relieving the pain and swelling. There is drug
therapy, exercise, rest,
heat, cold, diet, weight
control and surgery.
Two ladies in the
club, Angele Mollohan
and Emogene Slaughter,
celebrated birthdays in
January.
The February meeting will be held on the
21 st at Angele Mollohan’s
home
with
Patty
Richardson as hostess.

want to be your next Sheriff
of Braxton County.
Why do I deserve to be your
next Sheriff of Braxton
County?
1.
I am concerned about
the safety of Braxton County
and I will work to make Braxton
County Safe. People tell me that they would like to
see change in the Sheriffs office; I’m honest and
fair. I will listen to the people. I will do what is
asked of me, to the best of my ability.
2. 2. If elected, I will do everything in my power to
make sure that the sheriffs office will protect and
serve the people of Braxton County. They also
asked how I feel about female officers, and I
believe we should have one, if not two. I will
maintain a strict open-door policy. If you have any
comments, questions, or concerns you will be
able to stop by, call my office or email me at
anytime.
3. I was born in Gassaway, WV and had family here
all my life. I married Robin Meadows Powers and
we have beautiful twins 18 months old, Bradley
and Maggie, and a stepson Kyle.
Citizens and Voters, That is why I am asking you for
your vote for Sheriff of Braxton County.
Thank you for your support.
Sincerely,
Luther Ford Powers

Contact the Braxton County Animal shelter at 765-2200 for more
details on these and other animals found or rescued. West
Virginia law requires all dogs to have a current rabies vaccination
and the current year taxes paid with the tags placed on their
collars. Not only does this protect your dog from getting rabies
if, it gets lost and the Animal Shelter picks it up, we can get it
back to you. Contact the Animal Shelter today at 765-2200.
