Glenville: Craft Show and Baked Steak Dinner - December 15, 2012
WV-Set ‘BUCKWILD’ Series Debuts January 03, 2013 on MTV
Move over, “Jersey Shore” cast. A bunch of wild young West Virginians are about to fill your time slot.
MTV will begin airing the reality show “BUCKWILD,“ shot in Sissonville and Charleston, at 10:00 PM on January 03, 2013, spokeswoman Candice Ashton said.
Two half-hour episodes will air back-to-back each week, following nine “carefree and adventurous friends.“
The network ordered 12 episodes of the show last fall, and a trailer shows the cast drinking and swearing, four-wheeling and fighting, even filling a dump truck with water and using it as a swimming pool.
“They live their lives loud and proud without restrictions,“ MTV said in a statement. “Beyond dating, friendship and their love of mudding, the bond they share with family and friends is always at the core for this fun-loving group.“
The cast includes: Shain, a former high school prom king who missed the dance because he had to work; Shain’s best friend, Joey, a self-proclaimed ladies’ man; and Shae, a nursing student who goes for the bad boys.
There’s also: Anna, a “wild child” trying to decide between work and school; brave but troublemaking tomboy Ashley; Morgantown native Cara, who’s recovering from a failed relationship; heart-breaking pretty boy Tyler; danger-avoiding college student Katie; and the oldest of the group, Salwa, a college graduate living at home with strict parents and always eager to start the party.
The executive producers are Zoo Productions and J.P. Williams of Parallel Entertainment, a native West Virginian best known for creating Blue Collar Comedy.
The West Virginia Film Office denied tax credits to the producers over concerns the show would negatively portray the state’s young male residents, the latest front in a continuing battle over stereotyping.
In 2002, public outcry prompted CBS to drop plans for “The Real Beverly Hillbillies,“ which was to feature residents of rural Appalachia plunked down in the middle of Beverly Hills. A year later, the horror film “Wrong Turn,“ shot in Canada, was set in a hypothetical West Virginia, where cannibalistic mountain men terrorized lost tourists.
And in 2008, state leaders responded vehemently when a casting company looked to West Virginia for extras to play inbred degenerates.
On the upside, though, was last year’s Paramount Pictures blockbuster “Super 8.“ It was set in Weirton, the same town used for some scenes in the classic Vietnam film “The Deer Hunter.“
The 2004 film “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton” was partially shot in Fayetteville, which stood in for the Putnam County town of Frazier’s Bottom, where the script was set.
MANCHIN ASKS MTV TO CANCEL “BUCKWILD”
In letter to MTV President, Manchin cites ‘ugly, inaccurate’ stereotypes
U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) asked MTV to cancel the so-called reality show “Buckwild,” which has been compared to an Appalachian version of the television program “Jersey Shore.” The show is set in West Virginia.
The full text of the Senator’s letter is below:
Dear Mr. Stephen K. Friedman,
As a proud West Virginian, I am writing to formally request that you put a stop to the travesty called “Buckwild.” As a U.S. Senator, I am repulsed at this business venture, where some Americans are making money off of the poor decisions of our youth. I cannot imagine that anyone who loves this country would feel proud about profiting off of “Buckwild.”
Instead of showcasing the beauty of our people and our state, you preyed on young people, coaxed them into displaying shameful behavior – and now you are profiting from it. That is just wrong.
This show plays to ugly, inaccurate stereotypes about the people of West Virginia. Let me tell you: our people have given their all for this great country. They’ve done the heavy lifting to produce the energy that is needed to produce the steel that builds our factories and cities. The proud veterans of our state have shed more blood and made more sacrifices than most other states to keep America free. We’re proud of all we do to make America strong and secure the cherished freedoms that you seem so determined to abuse.
Your program offers nothing about the major issues of our time: how we move our country forward, how we prepare young people to lead this country and take responsibility for themselves and how we put our finances in better shape for the next generation. I am writing to urge you to reconsider airing this show. I hope that as you consider your decision, that you would consider your own state, your own community and your own children. Would you try to portray them in this light?
With warm regards,
Joe Manchin III,
U.S. Senator, West Virginia

GSC Freshman Shines in Singing Competition
Glenville State College freshmen Curtis Sutphin was awarded second place in a vocal competition at the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) Conference on Saturday October 27, 2012 at West Virginia University.
The competition included over one hundred singers from twenty-one schools in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia.
Sutphin, a Music Education and Voice major from Chapmanville (Logan County), West Virginia, sang three pieces, two in English and one in Italian. “I was really nervous singing in the final round, but I’m glad it turned out well. It is an awesome way to start my freshman year as a vocal major at GSC,“ said Sutphin.
The NATS competitions are a great way for voice students to perform for voice professionals other than their teacher and get feedback. The competition judges praised Sutphin’s performance with compliments including: “Beautiful tone, warm & rich; What a beautiful voice, you sing so musically; Bravo, beautiful pure tone.“
In addition to being an accomplished young singer, Sutphin also plays piano, viola, horn (was 2nd chair in the West Virginia High School All-State Orchestra in his senior year), flute, and piccolo. He plays in the GSC Marching Band, Woodwind Ensemble, Brass Ensemble, and Jazz Band in addition to singing in the GSC Concert Choir, Chamber Singers and the select sacred group - Blessed.
“Curtis is a talented, hard-working freshman. If he keeps at it, I expect he will have many more successful competitions,“ said Teresa Dody, GSC Assistant Professor of Music.
For his accomplishment, Sutphin received a certificate in addition to a small cash award.
West Virginia Man Turns Childhood Memories into Book
Growing up in Upshur County gave one man many stories to cherish and share with generations of his family, and now he wants to share them with other readers.
That is one reason why Greenbrier Almond, an Upshur County Board of Education member and lifelong resident of Upshur County, decided to collect and preserve those childhood stories.
Through McClain Printing Company of Parsons, Almond recently published “Stories of a West Virginia Doctor’s Son,“ retelling life lessons and experiences about his early life.
“What I was trying to capture is that Buckhannon was a very special place,“ Almond said. “I wanted to tell that story because I thought it was slipping away from us. It seems like life is getting harder for children now.“
Although Upshur County may change with time, Almond’s stories preserve a moment in that string of changes that can teach his children, grandchildren and other readers how his childhood differed, or be nostalgic to readers who also may have shared similar moments in their lives.
“Last spring, I realized that Maria, my daughter, was pregnant. I felt like I needed to start telling stories then,“ Almond said. “I was so excited as a first-time granddad.“
Almond said his father, a medical doctor, originally wrote stories about his practice, eventually publishing the book, “Stories of a West Virginia Doctor,“ which tells 50-55 stories.
“Those are precious to the family,“ Almond said, “It’s been rewarding to follow Dad’s tracks.“
Almond followed his father’s tracks in more than just writing. He, too, became a doctor. Almond is trained in family practice and is a board-certified psychiatrist. He said he wrote a counterpart to his father’s book in 2005 because his father had 70 or more additional stories that were not included in the first book. The book was titled “Stories of a West Virginia Doctor, Volume II.“
“Truly these are beautiful memories worth reading and lessons of life to treasure and share,“ Helen G. Reger wrote in her foreword to Almond’s book. Reger spent many years teaching in Upshur County, according to the foreword.
“Through his eyes, the author has given the reader a look into the beauty of a family life built on a foundation with love, compassion, learning and trust as the cornerstones,“ Reger wrote.
After publishing the stories from his childhood, Almond said he is working on another book that will tell stories throughout his teenage years in Upshur County. He and his four sisters are writing a collection of stories about growing up with their parents, Harold and Louis Almond.
“We became enamored, I guess, with the storytelling,“ Almond said. “I grew up basically without TV. Storytelling was a big part of our lives.“
Almond said he remained in Upshur County because he thought it was the best place on earth to raise a family.
“I’ve always considered us to be a very safe place, where there’s wonderful experiences, especially in nature, canoeing, swimming,“ Almond said. “It just seems perfect to me, I guess, almost heaven.“
Almond said his parents met at West Virginia Wesleyan College and were able to buy land on top of a hill in Buckhannon, and later, a farm at what used to be Hemlock near Helvetica.
“We had a wonderful way of life here, and I don’t want it to go away,“ Almond said, adding that writing stories is a good way to preserve the times he once had.
“I think I would encourage any grandparents or parents, uncles, aunts to write down their stories, “Almond said. “Preserve them for the grandkids in the next generation.“
‘Country Roads’ Gets Push for WV State Song
Dreama Denver is making a push to have “Take Me Home, Country Roads“ designated as one of West Virginia’s official state songs.
The widow of actor Bob Denver says the song is sung at many important state events.
At her request, Raleigh County Delegate Marty Gearhart plans to introduce a resolution during the 2013 regular session that would designate the song as one of the state’s official songs.
Dreama Denver tells the Charleston Gazette that she hopes West Virginians will contact their legislators and urge them to approve the resolution.
West Virginia has three official state songs: “West Virginia Hills,“ ‘’This Is My West Virginia“ and “West Virginia, My Home Sweet Home.“

Capito Plans 2014 Senate Run
Update: 11.26.12 - 11:58 AM
It’s official. Second District Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito announced Monday she is running for the U.S. Senate in 2014.
“West Virginia needs a new and diverse voice in the United States Senate, a voice that can listen and can walk with others to achieve great things. The United States Senate needs a voice that stands for common sense and fairness,“ she said.
“I believe that I can be that voice.“
Capito made her intentions known at the State Capitol on her 59th birthday. It’s a decision many Capitol insiders expected to hear, but maybe not so soon. The six, soon to be seven, term U.S. House Representative says now is the right time to make the announcement.
“I have decided to make my intentions for 2014 known now so that I can get back to work in Washington and to avoid disruptive, political speculation,“ said Congresswoman Capito.
She was surrounded by family, friends and supporters during Monday’s announcement. But two prominent figures in her life weren’t there, her father, former Governor Arch Moore and mother Shelley. She says she sat down with the two not long ago to tell them the news and her father was extremely excited.
“He looked over at me and gave me the thumbs up and he said, ‘Let’s Go!‘“
Capito says she sees a great need for more cooperation in the Senate and someone to champion the coal industry.
“We are a state rich in natural resources. Our coal reserves, natural gas and oil have played a major role in the course of our state and continue to drive our economy,“ said Congresswoman Capito.
Standing in the crowd of supporters was West Virginia Coal Association President Bill Raney. He says Capito is a friend of coal and someone the Association can get behind in 2014.
“She has been [in the House] for 12 years and been just an absolute soldier in Washington to make sure that our people continue to work. We feel like it’s very, very important that we reciprocate on that,“ said Raney.
Also on hand at the announcement was Steve Roberts, the President of the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce. “I was here to see what she had to say and to be here as a friend.“ Roberts stresses he was not there in an official capacity.
Conrad Lucas, the Chairman of the West Virginia Republican Party was there on official business. He says Capito will make a great U.S. Senator.
“She’s been an effective defender of jobs, defender of coal and fighting against Obama’s liberal policies that have hurt West Virginia,“ said Lucas.
Congresswoman Capito will begin her seventh term in the U.S. House in the New Year. She stresses, just because she’s made the announcement to run for Senate, doesn’t mean she’s forgotten her priorities.
“Over the next two years, I have no higher priority than continuing standing up for the Second District of our state as we tackle the immediate fiscal crisis in the next few months and we continue to stand up against the EPA’s dangerous and unconstitutional crusade to dictate our nation’s energy policies to the detriment of West Virginia.“
Before serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, Capito spent two terms in the West Virginia House of Delegates.
West Virginia Republican Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito will announce Monday morning that she is running in 2014 for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Democrat Jay Rockefeller.
Capito has long considered a run for the Senate, and passed on the most recent opportunity following the death of long-time Senator Robert Byrd. She’s expected to say, among other things, that the timing is now right for her run.
The announcement sets up a potential race between two West Virginia political heavyweights.
Rockefeller, 75, is serving his fifth term in the Senate. Prior to that he served two terms as Governor. In Washington, he has championed issues affecting children and families.
Rockefeller has indicated that he plans to run for re-election in 2014, but there continues to be speculation that he may retire at the end of this term.
Capito, who turns 59 Monday, was elected to her seventh term in the house this month. She has established herself as the most significant Republican politician in the state since her father, Arch Moore. He served three terms as Governor, but his legacy was tarnished by a corruption scandal that landed him in prison for three years.
Capito, however, has created her own political credentials as a moderate Republican and a formidable campaigner.
She is expected to say Monday that she wants to announce her candidacy now to end increased speculation and clear the way for others who may be interested in running for the second district seat she now occupies. The announcement is planned for 10:00 AM at the State Capitol.

G-Comm™: When Propaganda Masquarades as News
The week-long Israeli onslaught against largely defenseless Palestinians in Gaza that began on November 14 provides a basis for assessing how Western corporate media whitewash the war crimes of America’s foremost ally in the Middle East. There are three often intertwined techniques consciously applied to such news coverage—historical context, sourcing, and objectification of the enemy to be targeted. Such practices can readily transform journalism into propaganda that acts to abet such crimes while at the same time allowing journalistic institutions to still claim the mantle of “objectivity.”
Such methods are on full display in the reportage of Israel’s most recent operation in Gaza. The use of such propaganda fits within a broader campaign of media disinformation that subdues potential outrage—particularly in the U.S.—over Israel’s overwhelming use of force against an oppressed and vulnerable people, most of whom are civilians.
Meaningful historical context for understanding Israel’s aggression is almost entirely absent from most Western news coverage of the event. If present, such context would illuminate Israeli government officials’ true motivations for a military venture that involved 750 airstrikes in four days alone. “’Operation Pillar of Defense,’” Nile Bowie observes, launched just months away from Israel’s elections, is a calculated component of the Netanyahu government’s strategy to topple Hamas and continue absorbing Palestinian territory. Decades of occupation and apartheid have shaped the current scenario; Israel has dehumanized an entire people by seizing their land and forcing them into prison-like ghettoes. Adherents to political Zionism have shown contempt for a genuine political solution to the Palestinian conflict, and the Netanyahu administration is poised to crush all opposition to the Jewish state.
Major Western media focused instead on the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) November 14, 2012 assassination of Hamas leader and Palestinian hero Ahmed al-Jabari, while blatantly omitting the fact that he was also a major figure in negotiations for a long-term truce between Hamas and Israel freshly brokered by Egypt. Hours before Hamas strongman Ahmed Jabari was assassinated,” Israel’s Haaretz newspaper reported the day following the assassination, “he received the draft of a permanent truce agreement with Israel, which included mechanisms for maintaining the cease-fire in the case of a flare-up between Israel and the factions in the Gaza Strip.”
Apart from Western alternative media such critical details were quickly dispatched to the memory hole. Major news outlets almost systematically relied on Israeli government, military, and intelligence sources to shape its coverage, where Jabari was reviled as “the commander of the military wing of Hamas.” Reuters, for example, proceeded to source an IDF spokeswoman who proceeded to lay out the dominant frame for the coverage. “This is an operation against terror targets of different organizations in Gaza,” she declared. “Jaabari [sic] had ‘a lot of blood on his hands.’ Other militant groups including Islamic Jihad were on the target list.”
A similar report in the U.K. Telegraph taking the tack of Israeli official pronouncements beings with the lead, “Ahmed Jabari probably didn’t event hear the missile that killed him, launched from a drone in the skies over Gaza City as he drove an ordinary saloon car through a quiet residential street.” Emphasis on Jabari’s military status and alleged criminal and terrorist activities invariably legitimates Israel’s flagrant barbarism. Further, by holding Jabari up as a dangerous renegade supposedly representative of the Palestinian people the stage is set for attacks on civilians that are much more readily rationalized in the public mind.
Honest contextualization of the crisis leading readerships to greater understanding would involve consulting and publicizing both Israeli and Palestinian perspectives—an undertaking Western journalists are now adept at through their routine discussions with Syrian “activists” reporting on the alleged atrocities committed by the Syrian Army against Syrian citizens and the gallant Free Syrian Army “rebels” in that close by theatre.
In the case of Gaza, however, such media are apparently unable to locate well-heeled Palestinian “human rights activists” exiled in London who receive routine reports from like-minded “activists” on the ground in Gaza. If such activists are functioning their reports are not seeing the light of day.
Press coverage further underlines what clearly does not exist in Gaza: a parity of deadly force between the IDF and Palestinians and, moreover, Israel’s victimization at the hands of militant Palestinians. Terms such as “clash,” “conflict,” and “violence” misleadingly suggest exactly these conditions and anticipate permissible actions in a field of battle provided for under the Geneva Conventions. Such terms contrast greatly with aerial attacks using state-of-the-art weaponry on unarmed women and children.
Nevertheless, CBS News presented a timeline of events in Gaza that fit well alongside Israel’s public relations maneuvers seeking to downplay the IDF’s overt aggression. “Israel launches Operation Pillar of Defense in response to days of rocket fire outside of Hamas-ruled Gaza. The offensive, which included 20 airstrikes, resulted in the assassination of Ahmed Jabari, the military commander of Hamas.”
Another failure to provide adequate context and sourcing involves Israel’s relentless drive to build more settlements on Palestinian lands under Benjamin Netanyahu and Ehud Barak while firmly refusing Palestinians a right of return. This is one of the most essential and yet misunderstood pieces of the puzzle for understanding Israeli-Palestinian relations. Yet such important historical factors are largely devoid from the prevailing Western media frame through which the Gaza tragedy is viewed.
A LexisNexis Academic search in newspaper and magazine articles and broadcast transcripts for November 13 to November 21, 2012 using the terms “Israel,” “Gaza,” and “Hamas” yields 2,203 citations. Of these, less than 10% (205) mention “settlements,” while barely 2% reference “human rights.”
Given the relevant history and facts most observers would conclude that at the end of the day the leading concepts—land rights, human dignity, justice and respect—must be understood and reconciled before there can be peace in Palestine. The fact that much of the American public especially is misinformed or unaware of the profuse atrocities and injustices committed with its tax dollars and tacitly in its name attests to the continued centrality of propaganda, made all the more effective in its thoroughgoing attempt to masquerade as news.
