Jeanette Riffle: Memories of First Day of School

The Free Press WV

There was no kindergarten back in 1950 when I started school. I was going to turn six the last of September so Mom started me to first grade at Normantown High School, when I was five. School started in September back then. The school bus came by about 8:20 a.m. and there was a bus house down by the Chestnut Lick bridge above Lockney, just in sight of where we lived. First day of school, Mom took me down to the bus house and talked to an older girl who lived on Chesnut Lick and asked her to help me on the bus and show me where my room was at school. Her name was Gracie May Yeager. She was in sixth grade and that worked out good because her room was next door to mine. She and her friend, Alice Jones of Lockney, would come in my room at recess and talk to me. Everything was new and I didn’t know anyone.  Charlotte James was my teacher.  I can’t remember anything about lunch time until fifth and sixth grades. We must have carried a sack lunch.  I remember a new lunch pail in fifth grade and   what Mom fixed me. I never got tired of it. I got a deviled egg sandwich, banana, snowball cupcakes and a thermos of chocolate milk.

We had a nap time every afternoon and I remember sitting at a big wooden table with my arms folded up over the top for a pillow. My favorite toy was the Chinese Calculator. It was a big square wooden thing with colorful balls strung up on wooden rods and I enjoyed moving those pretty plastic balls along the rods. Each ball had a big hole in the center which made it easy to move on the rod. My husband said about every school had those and no one could figure out how to play that game. No one explained to me that it was a game or how to play it.

I just enjoyed moving those bright colored balls back and forth and lining them up.  We had reading circle and Miss James read us stories from the Dick, Jane and Spot series. Spot was their dog.  I remember a book called, See Spot Run. I was used to story books at home but this one was simple and it taught us how to recognize the letters of words and put them together in a sentence. The pictures were colorful and interesting to look at.  Some children have already gone back to school and some will be starting tomorrow on Monday. Most of them have to get up very early to catch their bus. Many things have changed over the years. Until next time, enjoy the nice cool fall like mornings and evenings we have been having. It seems like everything has been a month early this spring and summer but I will take an early fall any time to get away from heat and humidity.

Take care and God bless!

Jeanette Riffle: Grand Champion Steer

The Free Press WV

Pictured is Kraden Mitchell, son of Richard and Angela Stewart Mitchell of Frametown. Kraden’s angus/char, weighing in at 1, 225 pounds at fair time, won Grand Champion Steer at the Braxton Co. Fair of 2017. He named the steer, Fred.  Kraden also won ribbons and plaques besides highest gain of weight for his steer. He is my great nephew on the Stewart side. He is my brother, Elder Roger Stewart’s, grandson. Marina Marks Stewart is his grandma. Marina is a daughter of the late Geraldine Marks who wrote the column, “Around the Kitchen Table.”

The Free Press WV


There have been lots of fairs and festivals going on in Gilmer and Braxton counties. Lots of reunions and family get togethers. People have gone on vacations and some have taken day trips. Right now, we are having fall like weather and it makes everything more tolerable to be outside. Farmers are in hay and gardens are flourishing. Housewives are canning and freezing food for the winter.  It’s a busy time of year.  We are still having the thunder storms nearly every week. I can remember when we were growing up that Mom and Dad made us kids go to bed during a storm. They thought the feather pillows would protect us from lightening. Aunt Bea Stewart Watson, said that my Grandfather, Frank Stewart, would put a feather pillow up over the phone on the wall. He was afraid of lightening running in on the phone. Another belief was that if you were out in a car, the rubber tires would protect you. Mom always got us quiet. Old folks believed that noise attracted lightening. Another belief was that you had to stay out of water, not only out of the creek, but also in the house. Don’t even have your hands in water.

Our son was always fascinated by a storm. We were on a camping trip, in a campground, up in northern Michigan one time and it came up a thunderstorm during the night. I woke up and checked on him. He wasn’t in his bed.  I opened the camper door and saw him sitting out on the picnic table in that rain, all excited and watching the sky. I yelled at him to get back inside the camper and asked him why he was out there in that storm. He said he just wanted to see what was going on.  We got him back to safety. He was probably about 8 or 9.  Some boys do not fear anything and he was one of them. I think he had guardian angels watching over him or he wouldn’t be here.  When we first moved back to the farm at Shock, we had a tin roof on our trailer and I always enjoyed the sound of rain hitting on the tin roof. I’ve heard a lot of people say that they like to hear that. That’s all for this week, folks.

Until next time, take care, stay safe from the storms and God bless.

Normantown Christian School Receives Grant

The Parkersburg Area Community Foundation and its regional affiliate, the Little Kanawha Area Community Foundation (LKACF), recently awarded $1,815 in grant support to Normantown Christian.

The grant will enable Normantown Christian to initiate the school’s new program, One Child’s Time, which will allow students to create and frame paintings to be sold at arts/crafts shows, with 100% of the profits to be donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

“The Foundation’s LKACF Advisory Board, which is comprised of citizens in Calhoun, Gilmer and Wirt counties, felt that this was an excellent and self-sustaining program for Normantown Christian,” said Martha Haymaker, member of the LKACF Advisory Board.  “We highly recommended the project be supported with monies available from the Little Kanawaha Area Grantmaking Fund.  We are thrilled to see the school initiating One Child’s Time and look forward to the seeing the results.”
