Congratulations Gilmer County Century Farm Honorees.

(L-R) Teddy Fitzwater, Alex Lay Sears, Karen and Barry Lay, owners of the Century Farm,
Jane Collins and Larry Sponaugle, Conservation Supervisors for Gilmer County


The West Virginia Century Farm Program is designed to recognize those families who have been farming the same tract of land for at least 100 years.

A Century Farm is one that has been in continuous operation by the same family for 100 years or more.

A family member must live on the farm or be an integral part of the day-to-day operation of the farm enterprise.

The farm must consist of at least 10 acres of the original holdings and gross more than $1,000 annually from farm products.

School Year 2016-17

The Free Press WV

Here we are again — the beginning of a brand new school year when teachers are ready to teach and students are hopefully eager to learn.

Now that summer vacation is officially over, everyone needs to buckle down and get back to work. The first day, the first week and the first months of a new school year sets the tone for the rest of the year.

Teachers, it’s the time to get to know your students and to teach them what they need to learn and how to learn. Students, you’re there to learn, to be taught and to get the best education you can. Parents, you’re task is to encourage your children and to give them guidance.

Teachers, students and parents must all work together as a team to make education work. Communication is the key and all have to be willing and able participants in order to make sure the students are prepared and willing to learn.

Most teachers become teachers because they want to make a difference in the lives of their students. They have your child’s best interests at heart and will do all they can to ensure your child learns and is confident in their abilities.

We at the FREE PRESS encourage parents not only to be advocates for their children, but for the teachers as well. They are there to help your children and with reassurance from parents, their jobs will be a lot easier.

Let your child’s teacher know about his or her strengths, areas they might struggle with, methods and strategies that have been effective in the past and any other concerns you might have. Be sure to let the teacher know the best way to contact you in case they have any concerns.

Along with communicating with the teacher, remember to speak directly with your own child. Ask how they think they learn best in class, what they do to concentrate and how well they are keeping pace in class. Communicating these needs to your child’s teacher will give the teacher important insights to help your child adjust to the new school year.

We hope everyone gets off to a good start, are eager to learn, eager to teach and make the most of every single day.

Carolyn Sue Meadows Sturm Selected as the 2016 Normantown High School Alumnus of the Year

The Free Press WV

The Normantown High School Alumni Association meeting for perhaps its last time in the gymnasium of the school Saturday May 28, 2016, awarded Carolyn Sue Meadows Sturm the 2016 Alumnus of the Year Award. Dr. Gary Smith, Chair of the Alumnus of the year Committee presented the award and related that Carolyn received it because of her dedication to the preservation of Normantown High School’s rich history.

She served as past Chair of the Preservation Committee and helped in securing a safe and protected location at the Gilmer County Recreation Center for the individual Class Pictures and the many trophies and awards earned by Normantown High School. She, along with several other Alumni members moved these important artifacts to the White House at the Center. She and the committee placed the NHS 1945 State Basketball Championship trophy in the Gilmer County High School main trophy case. The Trophy was later relocated to a NHS Alumni owned trophy case along with other valuable and sentimental memorabilia to the Cafeteria of GCHS.

She co-authored the reproduction of Coach Eugene Williams’ Scrapbook in which he kept an abundance of news paper articles and other printed materials telling first hand the story of the Normantown High School 1945 great basketball championship run and accomplishments at a time when there was no separate classification of schools but instead all schools, large and small, competed for the championship. It is a historic event for the School, Gilmer County, and West Virginia that will never happen again.

Carolyn and husband, Richard Sturm, are Lewis County residents and have been most all their adult life. They reared three children and have four grand children and three great grand sons. She has been very active in and a strong supporter of schools, sports and the Lewis County High School Athletic Association. She has provided food many of the sports teams before their games making sure that they had a nutritious meal before their activity. She has also been active in many community activities.

Carolyn was born at home at Normantown to the parents of Landis and Winnie Moore Meadows. She went to the Normantown School all 12 years graduating in 1954. She was a Cheer Leader many of her high school years and an excellent student. Her father was a Bus Driver for the school and her mother one of the excellent cooks who also provided meals for the athletic teams before events. She is one of the few survivors who attended all games played by the Normantown 1945 State Basketball Champs. Her mother, an avid fan, took Carolyn and her sister to every game.

Carolyn has been an excellent supporter of the Normantown Alumni Association and the Class of 1954 organizing special reunions for the 40th, 50th, and 60th year reunions and producing a 1954 Yearbook.
