Gibbons Receives 2014 Barr Award

Dr. Megan Gibbons, Assistant Professor of Spanish at Glenville State College, has been selected to receive the 2014 Pete and Betsy Barr Professional Development Award.
The recipient of the award may use the funds to further his or her professional growth and development. The award is rotated annually between faculty and staff. The funds must be used within eighteen months of being awarded.

Gibbons plans to use the award to attend the NAFSA: Association of International Educators Conference in San Diego this coming May. With West Virginia’s Higher Education Policy Commission placing emphasis on expanding internationalization in curriculum, this conference will provide resources and workshops and allow her insight into transforming not only her courses, but to assist other professors at Glenville State College in doing the same.

“Upon learning I had received the award, I was very grateful and excited. NAFSA is the Association of International Educators and is well-known for its leadership in all areas of internationalization. As a member of GSC’s International Committee and as Project Coordinator for our two pilot courses featuring collaborative online international learning, I felt it would be important for me to attend NAFSA’s annual conference in order to stay current with trends and best practices related to internationalization. What I learn at the NAFSA conference will be extremely useful in my work here at Glenville State to internationalize the curriculum, since it is my hope that someday all GSC students will have at least one academic global learning experience before they graduate,“ said Gibbons.

GSC was recently selected as one of three institutions in the country to receive financial support and technical training from the State University of New York Collaborative Online International Learning American Council on Education Award. With that announcement, Gibbons will be working in concert with GSC Associate Professor of History Dr. Mike Gherke and with two professors from the University of Oviedo in Spain in order to explore the shared cultural and historical connections between the Appalachian and Asturian regions.

Asturian immigrants settled in Central West Virginia in the early twentieth century, maintaining their language and traditions while simultaneously adjusting to life in Appalachia. All students enrolled in these courses will increase their cultural knowledge. Additionally, those in Dr. Gherke’s course will focus on the immigrant experience whereas those in Dr. Gibbons’ course will hone language skills by practicing with native speakers.

“Our intent in funding this award was to expand the opportunities for our staff and faculty to grow professionally in a way that will benefit all of us here at Glenville State. Dr. Gibbons’ selection will certainly meet that goal, and Betsy and I congratulate her for her insight in the expansion of our international footprint in this exciting venture,“ said President Barr.

“The support of President and Mrs. Barr for faculty and staff to pursue professional development opportunities such as these is critical to maintaining standards of excellence, and I am honored to be able to represent the college at NAFSA thanks to the generosity of the Barrs,“ concluded Gibbons.

Gibbons is originally from Western Massachusetts but has lived throughout the United States and also in Italy, Panama, and Spain. She earned her Ph.D. in Hispanic Language and Literature from Boston University. Gibbons is currently in her third year at GSC and in addition to teaching all levels of Spanish, she also serves as the study abroad advisor.
Previous recipients of the Barr Award were: GSC Assistant Professor of Biology Dr. Sara Sawyer (2010), Administrative Secretary for the GSC Athletic Department and Title IX Coordinator/Senior Women’s Administrator Amanda Frymier (2011), Associate Professor of Business Cheryl Fleming McKinney, CPA (2012), and Registrar’s Office Certification Analyst Denise Ellyson (2013).

The next Barr Award will be presented in January 2015 to a selected staff applicant. A committee comprised of two faculty members and two staff representatives reviews all applications and selects the awardee.

WV Schools To Get Free Computer System Upgrades

The Gilmer Free Press

West Virginia’s public schools will get free computer operating system upgrades for five years under a new agreement with Microsoft.

The Charleston Daily Mail reports that schools will enter the agreement with Microsoft on July 01.

Under the agreement, schools can upgrade their computers’ operating systems without cost if the hardware can handle the upgrade.

Many school computers still use the 12-year-old Windows XP system.

Microsoft ended support for Windows XP last week.

The company said it will continue to provide anti-malware related updates through July 14, 2015.

G-LtE™: A MESSAGE YOU REALLY NEED FOR YOUR PROTECTION

The Gilmer Free Press

A MESSAGE YOU REALLY NEED FOR YOUR PROTECTION

From Dexter Jones of Beckley, WV, who grew up here and Mary Ann Radabaugh

In January 2014, someone went on the internet and STOLE all of Dexter’s wife, Carolny’s, SOCIAL SECURITY INFORMATION and moved it to a state out west, as though they were moving.

They had gotten EVERYTHING but her check when they got a letter from the SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION thanking them for using Social Security’s online services to create their online account.

Dexter and Carolyn thought, but we didn’t do that.  So they called the number on the letter they had received, 1.800.772.1213.  But it took them about an HOUR to get them at this number.

Bill and I tried this number and they just ask questions and questions.  We couldn’t find their number in the phone book, so we went to the Senior Center and they had the Clarksburg number 1.866.783.7305 and the Parkersburg number 1.866.574.2533.

We called Clarksburg and we got a PERSON to talk to.  We did what Dexter told us to do, put an ELECTRONIC BLOCK on our SOCIAL SECURITY so NO ONE could get in and do ANYTHING to it.

It did not take long.  The person asked for our SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER and BIRTH DATE.

You will need to contact the Social Security office closest to you (the one that set up your Social Security). If you don’t know where it is or the number, maybe the Clarksburg office or Parkersburg office can give you the number once they know where you live or where you were when you retired.  Of course, they may be able to do it for you no matter where you were then.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT POINT:  You need to be VERY CAREFUL about putting your SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER on ANY DOCUMENT when someone asks for it.  As noted above, the ONLY INFORMATION anyone needs to STEAL your IDENTITY is your SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER and your BIRTH DATE.

TIPS CONSUMERS CAN USE WHEN HIRING A CONTRACTOR

The Gilmer Free Press

Morrisey: Always verify a contractor’s license before hiring him or her
for home improvement projects.

Attorney General Patrick Morrisey today said West Virginians can and should take a few simple steps when hiring a contractor for home improvement projects.
“After a long, harsh winter, the weather is finally warming up in West Virginia. That means many people will be looking to hire contractors for home improvements inside and outside of their home.” Attorney General Morrisey said. “It is always important to verify the contractor’s license and to make sure you are getting a reputable person by checking references and prior work first.”
Morrisey said consumers should pay contractors in agreed-upon increments as work is being completed rather than paying upfront for work and materials. Many contractors will not require a payment until the job is completed; others may require a down payment for materials. In those cases, consumers should ask for a list of materials and acquire them separately. Bigger projects, especially those involving bank lending, should have a written contract with defined completion tasks and dates.
Consumers should regularly check on the progress of the work and not make a final payment until all of the work is complete, and it passes inspection.
Additional tips consumers should follow before hiring a contractor include:

    •  Shop around before hiring a contractor. This includes asking for references to verify the caliber of the contractor’s work.

    •  Do not hire a contractor who cold calls you offering to do work using “leftover supplies” from another job.

    •  Avoid a contractor that pressures you into an immediate decision.

    •  Never sign over an insurance check to contractor.

    •  Call the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 800.368.8808 and/or the West Virginia Division of Labor’s Contractor Licensing Board at 304-558-7890 to ensure the contractor is in good standing. Consumers also can look online at www.wvlabor.com/newwebsite/pages/contractor_searchNEW.cfm.

“West Virginia law does not require workers on projects that cost $2,499 or less to have a contractor’s license,” Morrisey said. “Therefore it is vitally important for consumers to check references to make sure the ‘handyman’ truly is handy.”

The category of “home repairs and remodeling services” was one of the top 10 most common complaint areas reported to the Consumer Protection Division in 2013. Calls and complaints often increase as the weather gets warmer and days get longer.
“This is the season when many of us will look to make improvements around our home,” Morrisey said. “It is always best to do your research before hiring anyone to help do repairs or improvements around your home. Remembering some of these tips and educating yourself on how to hire a contractor will guide you through your decision making process.”
If you have any questions about home improvement scams, or want to see if any complaints have been filed against a contractor, please call the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 800.368.8808.

Movie Review: ‘Draft Day’

If “Moneyball” could transform the inner workings of a baseball front office into Oscar-worthy entertainment, it was only a matter of time before a writer injected some drama into the NFL’s player-selection process. And here it is: “Draft Day.”

Make no mistake, this isn’t a sports movie so much as a procedural about backroom dealings, double-crosses and high-stakes trades. It’s about the games before the games. And if writers Scott Rothman and Pulitzer Prize finalist playwright Rajiv Joseph (who wrote “Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo” and “Gruesome Playground Injuries”) had stuck to the basics — if the plot was just business — it might have worked.

Kevin Costner plays Sonny Weaver Jr., general manager of the Cleveland Browns. His team is struggling, and his father, the former coach, has recently died. He also just found out that his girlfriend, Ali (Jennifer Garner), is pregnant.

The Gilmer Free Press


That’s a lot of stress, but today is a new day. In fact, it’s draft day, and things are getting interesting. The Browns are supposed to choose seventh overall, but Sonny gets an early-morning call from the Seattle Seahawks, who are willing to trade their first-round pick for the Browns’ first-round selection in each of the next three seasons. On the plus side, Cleveland could scoop up standout quarterback prospect Bo Callahan (Josh Pence). But it leaves the team at a disadvantage in future years.

What to do? It’s hard to say, given that everyone has a different opinion on the matter, from Coach Penn (Denis Leary) to owner Anthony Molina (Frank Langella) to Sonny’s own mother (Ellen Burstyn, who almost completely steals the show with her Twitter knowledge). So Sonny does some research: He makes calls to coaches and watches old footage, he tracks down gossip and writes cryptic notes to himself. All this is actually in­cred­ibly entertaining, which is curious given that most of the conversations involve one person desperately asking questions and the other person responding with no concrete answers.

The problem is, “Draft Day” isn’t just a procedural. It’s weighed down by a contrived romantic subplot between Sonny and Ali, who also works for the Browns, which means Sonny can repeatedly drag her into the supply closet for round after round of anguished discussions and tender moments.

If the pair generated some sparks, these exchanges might be more thrilling. Instead the scenes just highlight how miscast the actors are. Costner’s delivery is flat and lacks energy. Garner has done some exceptional work in the past, but can’t seem to land the sassy one-liners that Ali is supposed to deliver.

Ivan Reitman directed “Draft Day,” and the man who brought us “Ghostbusters” and “Dave” presents many of the conversations in a distracting, split-screen way; the participants, shown on the phone in their different rectangles, zip back and forth across the screen, or disappear from one side of the frame and then reappear on the other.

Worse, sometimes people won’t be talking on the phone at all, but they’ll still be up there in a trio of split screens, flip-flopping around, zooming left and sliding right. It starts to feel like that sidewalk game with the three cups and the marble. You’ll try hard to focus on what’s happening, but by the time the game ends, you realize it was no use. You’ve just been duped out of your money.

WV Grower Promotes Unmodified Feed Corn

The Gilmer Free Press

Lyle Tabb is hoping that his non-genetically modified corn will take off with farmers who can charge top dollar for “all natural” eggs.

Genetically modified or GMO corn has greatly simplified the process of getting rid of weeds, but has also substantially increased the amount of a chemical call glyphosate.

The vast majority of corn grown in the United States has been genetically modified to be “Roundup Ready,“ meaning that it is resistant to glyphosate, an herbicide that will kill most plants have not been subject to genetic modification. That resistance allows farmers to use Roundup liberally to kill off weeds that compete with their crops, but some consumers worry about the effects of the chemical.

“There are a lot of consumers who don’t have enough information on genetically modified foods to decide for themselves that it is totally safe to eat,“ Tabb said. “And I can understand some of those perspectives.“

Tabb, who grows Roundup Ready corn as well, says he didn’t find raising the older non-GMO variety much harder to grow. He said the yield from his non-GMO fields were the same as those from his GMO fields, and that his costs were the same.

“We’ve been growing GMO corn varieties for about 15 years,“ he said. “Prior to that everything we got was a hybrid just like it’s been for decades, without any genetic modification.“

Tabb says he got a little lucky this year because he didn’t face any major weed problems.

“I didn’t have to spray this year,“ he said. “I think probably three years out of five, you would have to spray.“

Raising non-GMO corn does require more vigilance, he said.

“You have to scout the fields more often for specific types of weeds, specific types of pests and decide whether you are going to spray or not, and, if you are, what you are going to use to target those specific things,“ he said.

Tabb sold his corn to Culpeper Farmers Cooperative, a grain supply company that was looking to roll out a non-GMO chicken feed under the brand name “Virginia Natural,“ and he got a slightly better price because of the increasing demand.

“The price is enough to cover my added costs in freight,“ he said. “For me, it was worthwhile to take a chance on.“

“It spreads out my risk, because it gives me one more place to market grain to, whereas right now I am pretty limited as far as where I buy grain,“ he added. “I hope I can grow all the non-GMO corn they want.“

Michael Swisher, spokesperson for the cooperative, says it is too early to say how big demand for the Virginia Natural feed will be — they just began producing it — but it was something that has been regularly requested by smaller livestock raisers.

“Primarily the interest has been from the poultry segment of the market, and a lot from the backyard, small flock grower looking for a natural feed source,“ he said. “It’s an opportunity to fill a niche market request, and it’s something to differentiate our feed mill from the competition.“

Tabb also sold some of his non-GMO corn to Bill Grantham, an eighth-generation Jefferson County Farmer who won the state’s Conservation Farm of the Year award in 2013. Grantham said the demand for non-GMO eggs is extremely high, even at higher prices than eggs from chickens who have been fed GMO corn.

“There’s huge demand,“ he said. “Believe me: there is no problem selling them. There is only a problem getting enough of them.“

Grantham said had had recently sold out of the non-GMO eggs — at $5 a dozen.

“We had both types at market in Shepherdstown,“ he said. “I had 50-dozen non-GMO eggs. I had 25-dozen GMO eggs. I came home with 15-dozen GMO eggs and zero GMO non-GMO eggs.“

“We do have to charge more for them for the simple reason that the feed is just about double (the cost) of GMO feed,“ he added.

Grantham said he thinks Tabb is taking a path that will be followed by more area farmers in coming years.

“Lyle is one terrific farmer,“ Grantham said. “He knows what he’s doing, and I think you are going to see a lot of people come around to doing it this way.“

Rankings are important to enable the public to know how their teams compare. Considerable time and effort are expended in assembling the data and all statistics related to the massive task. The question for those who focus on moving the State forward socioeconomically is why with our State ranked near the bottom for the quality of its k-12 school system, we don’t focus on acquiring information to openly disclose how each of our K-12 schools rank academically? Is it because West Virginians don’t care, do we have a cultural trait of denial of how our schools actually perform, or is it that our politicians, teacher’s unions, and school administrators don’t want accurate and comparative information to surface? Imagine how it would be for Gilmer County if the quality of education at the GCHS ranked near the top in WV.  Presently, parents do not have access to accurate information to know how it ranks although we have been told that it is one of the best schools in WV. Being positive is OK, but show us accurate comparative information State Board of Education. If we had the information for each school in the State perhaps a new movement would start to inject good old fashion competition among the State’s school systems. That achievement would contribute significantly to the betterment of our struggling people. Does anyone out there disagree?

Standing for West Virginia’s Steelworkers

The Gilmer Free Press

I am deeply proud of the long history I share with West Virginia’s steel industry, and the incredibly talented men and women who are part of steel’s strong and resilient story in our state. Last month, many of us joined together in Weirton to reflect on the past – from our greatest challenges to our proudest accomplishments – and to have a discussion about the future of this industry and its workers.

Among those who joined us in Weirton were Leo Girard and Johnny Saunders, from the United Steelworkers, and Mark Glyptis, President of United Steelworkers Local Union 2911. More than 30 years ago, Mark and I worked closely together on negotiations to create a groundbreaking Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) for Weirton Steel. We negotiated for months, right up through that Easter weekend 30 years ago. Ultimately our efforts paid off – the ESOP extended Weirton Steel’s life and thousands of jobs were saved.

I will never forget one incredible day in 1999, when I stood with so many amazing West Virginians on the steps of the U.S. Capitol as we rallied to save steel jobs. Mark organized more than 75 buses of steelworkers from Weirton alone. And those passionate voices were heard. I’m convinced that the President could hear us all the way down at the White House.

Together, we’ve been a formidable team for more than three decades. We’ve waged battles over unfair competition from cheap, overseas steel makers. We fought for tariffs on foreign steel after the illegal dumping caused by the Asian financial crisis. We waged a relentless battle to protect Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) benefits, a critically important program that provides nearly a billion dollars in job training and financial assistance each year to workers harmed by unfair trade.

I was also able to reflect on another moment of great significance – the Ravenswood Aluminum lockout, which happened 20 years ago – with my friend, Karen Gorrell. Karen works day and night on behalf of Century Aluminum’s retirees, and she continues to fight to restore their health care benefits that were taken once the plant closed in 2009.

After taking time to reflect on the past, we turned to the work that lies ahead.  We discussed our efforts to restore the Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC) portion of TAA, which is important to many of those steelworkers who have been laid off. Just this month, we took a positive step toward reinstating the HCTC after the Senate Finance Committee voted to include it in a tax package.

We also focused on an important, but difficult, battle to demand a more level playing field for steelworkers. Currently, two cases on Chinese imports are before the International Trade Commission (ITC), and they could have serious economic ramifications for the steel industry.

Despite our challenges, I continue to believe in the future for our steel communities. Getting there won’t be easy – just as our fights over the years haven’t always been easy – but our steel communities are worth it. The people are strong, resilient, and will stop at nothing to take care of each other.

In my time spent at rallies or fierce negotiations, sitting on the front porches of the homes I passed in Weirton, or standing outside the Capitol to save thousands of steel jobs, I have seen this irrepressible spirit in the men and women of this incredible industry. You all hold a very special place in my heart, and I hope you know that in my final year in the Senate, my commitment to take care of our steelworkers, families, and retirees remains as strong as ever.

Bon Appétit: Middle Eastern Roasted Butternut Squash with Soft-Boiled Eggs

The Gilmer Free Press

Ingredients:

  3-pound butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch cubes
  2 Tablespoons olive oil
  1 teaspoon garlic powder
  4 eggs
  1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
  1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  1 teaspoon kosher salt
  Zest of 1/2 lemon
  Tzatziki (purchased)


Directions:

Heat the oven to 425 degrees.

Mound the squash on a rimmed baking sheet, then drizzle it with the olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder.

Use your hands to mix the squash until well coated.

Roast for 25 to 30 minutes, or until browned and tender.

Meanwhile, prepare the eggs and seasoning blend.

Place the eggs in a medium saucepan and add enough cold water to cover them by 1 inch.

Set the pan over medium heat.

Bring the water to a boil, then remove the pan from the heat, cover and let stand for 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes, use a slotted spoon to transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water.

Cool until easily handled, but not cold, about 5 minutes.

To make the seasoning blend, in a small, dry skillet over low heat, combine the peppercorns with the sesame, cumin, coriander and fennel seeds.

Toast, stirring, just until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Transfer to a spice grinder or mortar and pestle and let cool.

Once cool, grind until fine.

Mix in the salt and lemon zest.

Set aside.

Once the squash has roasted, divide it between 4 serving plates.

Carefully peel the eggs and set one in the center of each serving.

Sprinkle the squash and egg with the seasoning blend.

Accompany with tzatziki on the side of the plate.

Use a fork to break the white of each egg and allow the yolk to spill onto the squash just before serving.

Makes 4 servings.

Ask the Doctor: Parkinson’s Disease

image

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 77 and was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. I take Sinemet and Azilect. I have NO tremors. However, I have stiffness in my legs, difficulty getting up from the seated position and loss of balance. I understand there is no cure. What is the recommended treatment? Can I expect a normal life span? - J.G.

ANSWER: The cardinal features of Parkinson’s disease are muscle rigidity, bradykinesia and resting tremor. Muscle rigidity means that muscles lose their fluid movement. Bending the arm, for example, consists in a series of small, stiff motions like a ratchet moving from one groove to the next. Bradykinesia is small, slow movements. It makes actions like buttoning a shirt, tying shoes or controlling a computer mouse difficult. Patients describe it as muscle weakness or klutziness. Trouble rising from a chair is an example of bradykinesia. The Parkinson’s tremor, not always part of a patient’s signs, is a resting tremor. It occurs, for example, when the hands are in the lap. The index finger constantly rolls over the thumb.

Other Parkinson’s signs are an expressionless face, decreased blinking, difficulty swallowing and loss of balance. All these signs don’t affect every patient, and the degree to which they do varies from patient to patient.
A deficiency of the brain chemical dopamine brings about all these signs and symptoms. Dopamine is a messenger chemical involving parts of the brain concerned with movement.

Medicines used for treatment are, for the most part, ones that boost the brain’s level of dopamine. Sinemet, for example, is the combination of two medicine, levodopa and cardiodopa. Levodopa is a precursor of dopamine. Dopamine cannot penetrate into the brain, but levodopa can. When it arrives there, it is changed into dopamine. Cardiodopa slows the breakdown of dopamine. Your Azilect (rasagiline) is medicine that also puts a halt to the degradation of dopamine. There are many more drugs. Which is best depends on your symptoms.

It’s difficult to predict the lifespan of one with Parkinson’s. If the disease is not disabling, lifespan is near normal. Stay as active as you possibly can.

G-MM™: Meditation Moment - 04.16.14

image

I offered no resistance, neither did I turn away.

Dear Lord, help us to journey with you in spirit through the last few days of your life. You came on Earth to show us the way we should live, what things are important, and how to look at things from God’s point of view. As you fell foul of the powers that be, you showed us how to follow you to Jerusalem to your death. Help us to draw close to you, to reflect on how you showed us to live, and with your grace we will succeed in following your Way, not in morbid sorrow but in praise and love for you, our redeemer. With the psalmist we will say, ‘I will praise God’s name.’


Isaiah 50:4-9. Lord, in your great love, answer me—Ps 68(69):8-10, 21-22, 31, 33-34. Matthew 26:14-25.

2014 >  WayBackWhen™: April 16

Today is Wednesday, April 16, the 106th day of 2014. There are 259 days left in the year.


Thought for Today:

“Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right.‘ Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along. “ — George Herbert, English author (1593-1633).


Today’s Highlight in History:

The Gilmer Free Press

On April 16, 1964, The Rolling Stones’ first album, eponymously titled “The Rolling Stones,“ was released in the United Kingdom by Decca Records (a slightly different version debuted in the United States a month and a-half later).


On this date:

In 1789, President-elect George Washington left Mount Vernon, Va., for his inauguration in New York.

In 1862, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln signed a bill ending slavery in the District of Columbia. The Confederacy conscripted all white men between the ages of 18 to 35.

In 1879, Bernadette Soubirous, who’d described seeing visions of the Virgin Mary at Lourdes, died in Nevers (neh-VEHR’), France.

In 1889, comedian and movie director Charles Chaplin was born in London.

In 1912, American aviator Harriet Quimby became the first woman to fly across the English Channel, traveling from Dover, England, to France in 59 minutes.

In 1935, the radio comedy program “Fibber McGee and Molly” premiered on NBC’s Blue Network.

In 1947, the French ship Grandcamp blew up at the harbor in Texas City, Texas; another ship, the High Flyer, exploded the following day (the blasts and fires killed nearly 600 people). Financier Bernard M. Baruch said in a speech at the South Carolina statehouse, “Let us not be deceived — we are today in the midst of a cold war.“

In 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote his “Letter from Birmingham Jail” in which he said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.“

In 1972, Apollo 16 blasted off on a voyage to the moon with astronauts John W. Young, Charles M. Duke Jr. and Ken Mattingly on board.

In 1986, dispelling rumors he was dead, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi appeared on television to condemn the U.S. raid on his country and to say that Libyans were “ready to die” defending their nation.

In 1994, Ralph Ellison, author of “Invisible Man,“ died in New York.

In 2007, in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history, student Seung-Hui Cho (sung-wee joh) killed 32 people on the campus of Virginia Tech before taking his own life.


Ten years ago:

Videotape broadcast on the Arab TV station Al-Jazeera showed Army Pfc. Keith M. Maupin, abducted during an attack on a fuel truck convoy near Baghdad a week earlier. (Arab television reported June 29, 2004 that Maupin had been killed; his remains were recovered in 2008.)

President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, meeting in Washington, endorsed giving the United Nations broad control over Iraq’s political future.


Five years ago:

President Barack Obama issued a statement saying CIA officials who’d used harsh interrogation tactics during the Bush administration would not be prosecuted; the president traveled to Mexico, where he pledged to help the country in its battle against drugs and violence.

The crew of the cargo ship Maersk Alabama, who’d thwarted pirates off the Somali coast, returned to the U.S.; ship’s captain Richard Phillips, held hostage for five days, arrived in Kenya aboard the USS Bainbridge. U.N. nuclear experts ordered to leave by North Korea departed the country. The Cleveland Indians ruined the Yankees’ first game at their new stadium by beating New York 10-2.

One year ago: Federal agents zeroed in on how the Boston Marathon bombing was carried out — with kitchen pressure cookers packed with explosives, nails and other lethal shrapnel — but said they didn’t know yet who’d done it, or why.

An envelope addressed to Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., tested positive for ricin, a potentially fatal poison.

NFL player-turned-broadcaster Pat Summerall died in Dallas; he was 82.

GSC’s Yeager Airport Earth Day Adoption Continues

Glenville State College students, faculty, and staff will continue to plant trees and flowers at Yeager Airport in Charleston on Tuesday April 22, 2014. The efforts are part of their ongoing ‘Adopt-an-Airport’ annual Earth Day event.

“Since completing the tree plantings in 2011, GSC has continued to work each Earth Day to further beautify Yeager Airport. This year, GSC Hidden Promise scholars will participate in planting trees and daffodils around new airport signage halfway up Airport Road,” said project organizer and GSC Public Relations Specialist Bob Henry Baber. “In the past, Land Resources students as well as members of the Student Government Association, the GSC Baseball Team, and multiple campus clubs and organizations have all pitched in to this great ‘green’ project,” added Baber.

Earth Day 2013 planting and mulching activities at Charleston’s Yeager Airport


Starting in 2008, GSC’s Land Resources Department faculty, staff, and students created a comprehensive plan and led a series of interventions that planted over 10,000 trees in a successful effort to reforest the hillside within the viewshed of Interstates 64 and 79. Baber says that area was denuded when a significant portion of the mountainside was removed to extend the runway for safety reasons.

“This is a great opportunity for our Hidden Promise students to make West Virginia a prettier place and to fulfill our program’s strong commitment to community service. We’re excited to be a part of Earth Day activities,” said GSC Hidden Promise Director Teresa Sterns.

The Hidden Promise Program is an alliance of GSC and 41 county school districts in West Virginia, Ohio, and Connecticut aimed at increasing the number of high school and college graduates. The program currently has nearly 1,800 scholars system-wide and more than 100 full-time students enrolled on the Glenville State campus.

Both Montgomery and Murphy were acknowledged during the session of the West Virginia House of Delegates by House Majority Leader Brent Boggs (D-Braxton County) of the 34th district.  Boggs is a 1976 GSC graduate.

Also in attendance from GSC were Hidden Promise Scholars Program Director Teresa Sterns, Hidden Promise Scholars Coordinator Stacy Adkins, and Alumni Relations Director/Special Assistant to the President Debbie Nagy.

The West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission (WVHEPC) sponsors Higher Education Day every year during the regular legislative session. The annual event is designed to salute West Virginia’s higher education institutions and to inform students, policymakers, and the public about post-secondary educational opportunities in the Mountain State.  Representatives from more than thirty of the state’s colleges and universities set up displays in the upper rotunda of the West Virginia State Capitol Building promoting their institutions.
