VVV Warehouse Sale

The Gilmer Free Press

Since my sister Sherry’s death, I have been trying to do many of the things I’ve always wanted to do in my life.  Life is short.  It’s even shorter now because the second coming of the Lord will be much sooner than many believe.  The time is right for Jesus’ return.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 (KJV),  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

The New Life Version says it best, in my opinion, The time will come when people will not listen to the truth. They will look for teachers who will tell them only what they want to hear. 4 They will not listen to the truth. Instead, they will listen to stories made up by men.

We are in such a time. Come, Lord Jesus, Come!


Anyway, in so doing my many projects I was clueless as to why I was doing them Someone told me a few months ago that I am doing my “bucket list.“  A deer in the headlights of an oncoming semi couldn’t have been more shocked.  Sure enough, that’s what I’ve been doing.  The forest was too close for me to see the trees.

Most of the projects I’ve attempted I loved. The food pantry, while extremely taxing, is the joy of my heart because through it we have the awesome opportunity to meet people at their point of need and tell them about Jesus. The food has always been secondary.  The need is great for food, clothing, HBA and other tangible items, but what people really want is to know someone cares.  We now take the prayer requests of each person passing through.  They are prayed for on our site at the end of our day and then taken to a local church for additional prayer. Only the blood of Jesus can save a soul from eternal Hell.

Farming/animals are dear to my heart. God willing I will go back to raising animals one day.  There have been a few projects that, although I love them, I’m not at all suited to them or am too old and physically incapable of doing them well. However, there is only one project, thus far, that is not pleasing to me in the slightest, including the fact that it’s not suited to me and my understanding and knowledge thereof is very limited.  I’m speaking of Visions, Vessels, and Victory, Inc. Warehouse.  Therefore, it is my intention to sell all the product and accessories of my warehouse in a lump sum.  The building and land are NOT included in this sale. 

Mr. Greg Shackleford, who managed Appcon Lumber and Supply, Inc. for years and has been the director of VVV for many years, has estimated the market value of our entire product to be in the neighborhood of 3/4 to 1.2 million dollars.  When you consider the vast amount of items, the shelving, peg board, pegs, sinks, windows, doors (over 2000), welding supplies, and countless items such as handicap bars, sink drainers, Ondora, lumber, paint, hardware, etc., I’m positive he is correct.  We have many truckloads of product.

Now, we’re not looking to get rich by the sale of the warehouse. Simply said, I just want out of it.  There are other plans I have for the Appcon building that will benefit the community.  In addition, I want to finish the pantry building and have it running as we had planned long ago. This would be an excellent buy for someone wanting to start his or her own store.  It would be better still for a non-profit that has the funds and the manpower to do projects that will help people and could bring them recognition.  Or even better still, if a non-profit sold the items to help their projects, teams, schools, etc.  We’re asking $250,000, which is always negotiable.

Pass on the word.  Call 304.462.5323 if interested or if you know of anyone or business that is interested.  Ask for Greg or Deana or leave a message if no one answers.

HADS entered a plea of guilty on October 10, 2012, to “Traveling in Interstate Commerce with the Intent to Engage in Illicit Sexual Conduct” on February 23, 2012, when HADS traveled from Massachusetts to North Central West Virginia to have sex with a minor from Linn, WV.

Court documents indicate that HADS posed as an 18-year old man on a social media website and also took steps to change her appearance in order to deceive the victim as to her true identity.

HADS met the alleged victim online in 2010 and the two communicated for over a year before the first in-person meeting took place.

HADS traveled at least three times from Massachusetts to visit the alleged victim, and was arrested at the Pittsburgh International Airport by F.B.I. agents on May 25, 2012, on one of her visits to the area.

As part of her plea, HADS agreed to the forfeiture of the computer and electronic equipment seized from her and her residence.

HADS was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal pending designation to a
Federal institution.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn A. Morgan, Chief of the Criminal Division for the U.S. Attorney’s Office and investigated by the West Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

G-Vine™: Heard It Through G-Vine – 12.31.12

Community talk heard through the G-Vine:


•  Is it true about the new school they want to build in the Linn area that they want natural gas and Garretts refusing to give them a right away so they might have to re-design everything and make the school all electric?


•  Was the site for the new school in Linn nothing but a swamp area and could this cause a lot of problems?


•  THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AT THE MICKEY METZ’S SHERIFF OFFICE WERE DUE TO BE IN THE PAPER BY SEPTEMBER 30TH.  STILL NOT OUT! WHY?


•  There is chatter about recent alleged sexual misconduct at the GCHS involving staff and students. Do you know if there is anything to it?


•  Since Mickey Metz is leaving the office there should be a settlement report due December 31, 2012. Should it not?


•  Commissioners Kennedy and Ramsey have failed to report the financial crisis and missing funds under Sheriff Metz’s role as the county treasurer? Why?


•  The last day of school before Christmas, an english teacher at GCHS caught students in the back of her classroom using marijuana and reported them to the principal. What is the deal with that?


•  It is horrible that examples of alleged misconduct at GCHS go unreported.  That failure is enabling the individuals who could care the least about decency. What it will take is a parent or another individual in the know to rise up to file a formal complaint about the sexual misconducts at school. Have any complaints been filed? If administrators know about problems and they fail to act it is my belief that they could be held accountable similar to what happened at Penn State.

»  The firearm antlered deer bag limit during the two-week buck season is two (one on the base license and one on an RG [resident] or RRG [nonresident] stamp). A hunter may take no more than three antlered deer per calendar year in all archery and firearms seasons combined.

»  The last day to purchase an additional buck deer gun tag (Class RG/RRG Stamp) was November 18, 2012. Class RG and Class RRG additional buck stamps can only be used to take an additional antlered deer in firearm buck season. Unused Class RG and Class RRG stamps may not be used in antlerless or muzzleloader seasons.

»  There are 10 counties or portions thereof (see the 2012 – 2013 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Summary) that require buck firearms hunters to take an antlerless deer during the antlerless firearms deer season (with Class N permit for residents or Class NN permit for nonresidents) prior to harvesting a second antlered deer during the buck firearms season.

»  All private and public lands in counties having a firearms antlerless deer gun season (Class N for residents and Class NN for nonresidents) will be open November 19 – December 01, 2012 (concurrent with the buck gun season), December 13 - 15, and December 28 – 31, 2012. Bag limits vary among counties but will be either one or three antlerless deer.

»  All deer must be field tagged and checked in within 72 hours of the time of kill or within 24 hours of the close of the season, whichever comes first. Additional deer may not be taken until all previously taken deer have been checked. Only one deer may be taken per day during the buck season.

»  Deer hunters spend an estimated $230 million in West Virginia, much of it in the rural areas of the state that depend upon the deer seasons for a large portion of their annual income.

»  In 2011, deer hunters in West Virginia harvested 60,157 bucks during the two-week buck season, an increase of 38 percent from the 2010 harvest. This is two percent less than the five-year average harvest of 61,428 and ranks 24th among all past years.

»  WVDNR forecasts that the buck harvest should be slightly higher for 2012. All regions should see a similar-to-higher harvest this year. The increased reproduction of 2011 and the mild winter of 2011-2012 should mean that there are plenty of 1.5-year-old animals for hunters. The overall mast conditions should be favorable. In addition, DNR has been conducting spotlight counts in many counties and have observed many large-racked animals for hunters to pursue.

»  Sunday hunting is legal in the following 14 counties on private land only: Boone, Brooke, Clay, Hancock, Jefferson, Lincoln, Logan, McDowell, Marshall, Mingo, Ohio, Wayne, Wetzel and Wyoming. The only Sunday that is open in these counties during the buck season is November 25, 2012. Hunters are reminded that deer gun seasons are closed in Logan, Mingo, McDowell and Wyoming counties.

»  Hunters are required to wear at least 400 square inches of blaze orange (about the size of a vest) as an outer garment for visibility and safety. Blaze orange camouflage patterns are legal as long as 400 square inches of blaze orange are displayed on the garment. A blaze orange hat is not required, but the hunter must have blaze orange visible from both the front and the back.

A Massachusetts woman accused of posing as a 17-year-old boy to prey on a West Virginia girl intends to enter a plea next week in federal court.

U.S. Magistrate John Kaull entered an order Monday scheduling a Wednesday, October 10, 2012 hearing for 25-year-old Carissa Hads of Quincy, MA.

The document says she has entered a plea agreement with the government, but it does not specify details.

Hads’ public defender did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Hads previously pleaded not guilty to one count of traveling in interstate commerce to engage in illegal sexual conduct.

Investigators say Hads pretended to be a 17-year-old boy and began an online relationship with the girl in 2010.

She visited the Linn, West Virginia teen at least three times and had a sexual encounter in February.
