GSC Students Clean Section of Little Kanawha River

Students from Dr. Ross Conover’s Ecology and Field Biology class, and other Glenville State College volunteers, spent nine wet hours hauling trash out of the Little Kanawha River recently.

Members of the self-proclaimed ‘Little Kanawha Navy’ removed trash and debris from this section of the river last year as well.

“I was leery about cleaning this same stretch of river that we so thoroughly cleaned 12 months ago because I didn’t think we’d find much, but we actually pulled out even more trash than last year!” said Conover who serves as an Assistant Professor of Biology at GSC. Some of the removed items included: 73 tires, bicycles, gas tanks, pool liners, plastic and metal pipes and tubing, various car parts, trash cans, fiberglass items, aluminum cans and plastic bottles, a computer, numerous pieces of rusted metal, a vacuum cleaner, plastic fan, inner tubes, a 55 gallon steel drum, and numerous other items.

While cleaning, the class saw River Otter slides, ate some native Paw Paws and observed Belted Kingfishers, freshwater snails and clams, crayfish, and other wildlife species.

Students who assisted with the effort included:

•  Brock McClung of Point Pleasant

•  Adam Ramsey of Burnsville

•  Seth Doss of Marlinton

•  Maren Wentzel of Weston

•  Justin Stark of Weston

•  Steven Miller of Tioga

•  Brandon Collins of Winfield

•  Jonathan Rhodes of Le Roy

•  Chad Ingram of Moundsville

“This river cleanup is a little something we can do to help the environment around Glenville. Although it was a ton of hard work and took a whole day, it is something we can look back on and feel good about for a long time,“ said Doss.

“I had a lot of fun floating the river and picking up trash even though it ended up being a lot of work. After seeing the amount of trash that we gathered it definitely puts into perspective how much we need to work on preserving the environment. I’ll no longer leave cans in the back of my truck, giving them the chance to blow out,“ said Collins.

“All in all it was a fun and rewarding day; getting to be on the river with everyone, seeing all of the wildlife, and cleaning up a pretty area,“ said Wentzel.

“It is especially rewarding to know that many nonnative objects have been removed from the river, and that plant, animals, and forms of aquatic life are able to begin utilizing their habitat with less disruption,“ said Ramsey.

Their cleanup effort was supported again this year by Mountain State Waste, which donated a dumpster and professional services. The Glenville State College High Adventure Program and Boy Scout Troop 39 of Grantsville, West Virginia donated canoes. Scout Leader Larry Baker, who is also an Associate Professor of Physical Science at GSC, helped facilitate the use of the troop’s canoes.

With more than a dozen sessions ranging from livestock production and liability issues to marketing basics and governmental relations, participants can tailor their conference experience to their specific needs.  There will also be age-appropriate activities for youths, age 5-18 on Saturday for $15 per child.
The weekend is designed to give farmers and farm service providers the opportunity to gain valuable insight and skills from local experts with real world experience-and to use that knowledge to build and improve their own farm operation through effective management practices. 
There will be an exhibitor hall.  Vendor who would like to participate in the exhibition fair would pay a $150, which covers their booth space and two meals.  State or non-profit agencies can exhibit at a discounted rate of $35 per person working the booth.

10 Safest Places In West Virginia

The Gilmer Free Press

Known for its beautiful Sugar Maples, the Classic Scenic Railroad, Harpers Ferry, majestic mountains, and of course, the world’s largest Sycamore tree (yep, it’s true!), West Virginia is certainly a beautiful and historically rich state. No question about it.

But a state’s “postcard potential” isn’t always enough reason to live there. What about the communities? What about the safety?

Well, that’s precisely the question we’re answering today on the Movoto Real Estate Blog: which of West Virginia’s places are the safest? According to our analysis, that honor goes to the City of Weston.

Here are the 10 safest places in West Virginia:

1. City of Weston

2. City of Ripley

3. City of Weirton

4. City of Bridgeport

5. City of Oak Hill

6. City of Keyser

7. City of Williamson

8. City of Ravenswood

9. City of Vienna

10. City of Nitro


To find out why each of these 10 places ranked better than the rest, and just how we came up with this list in the first place, keep reading.
How We Created This Ranking


We started out by making a list of all of the most populous places in West Virginia, according to the U.S. Census (all places with 3,000 people or more.) We then used the Uniform Crime Report from the FBI (2012) to research each place according to the following criteria:

•  Murder

•  Rape

•  Robbery

•  Assault

•  Burglary

•  Theft

•  Vehicle theft


We divided these crimes into four different categories:

•  Murders

•  Violent crimes

•  Property crimes

•  Total crimes


Once we omitted any places that didn’t report crime data that year, we were left with a total of 27 places. From there, we calculated each place’s crime per 100,000 residents in order to fairly compare all of our places, no matter their population size.

Next, we ranked all of our places with a score from one to 27 in each of the categories, all per 100,000 people. The lower the number, the safer the place.

In order to take certain crime’s severity into consideration, we weighted murders, violent crimes, and property crimes more heavily (they made up 30 percent of the overall score) where the total number of crimes made up just 10.

Finally, we averaged all of these weighted scores into one overall Big Deal Score, where the place with the lowest number for that score was our safest place.

If you just can’t wait to see how each of our 27 places ranked, feel free to head down to the bottom of this post. Otherwise, we’ll take a closer look at what makes each of our 10 places so safe, starting with our winner, Weston.

The Gilmer Free Press

1. Weston

First up on our list is Weston, with not just the lowest number of crimes in West Virginia, but likely, the lowest number of crimes in most states. In 2012, it had just 194 property crimes per 100,000 people. That’s it. As in, they had absolutely no violent crimes.

Of those property crimes, 24 were burglaries, 170 were thefts, and there were no vehicle thefts. The most impressive part of all? With such a low number of overall crimes, residents in Weston had just a one in 515 chance of being the victim of a crime.

To put that into perspective for you, just take a look at Princeton or Beckley, where the chances were about one in 10.

The Gilmer Free Press

2. Ripley

They must be putting something in the water in West Virginia, because just like Weston before it, Ripley had a reported total of zero, zilch, nada violent crimes for 2012.

The reason they ranked second, though, was that they had a higher total number of property crimes than Weston—338 per 100,000. Those property crimes included zero vehicle thefts, 31 burglaries, and 307 thefts per 100,000 people.

All told, residents here were the second least likely to ever be involved (or at least be the victim of) a crime, with just a one in 296 chance.

The Gilmer Free Press

3. Weirton

The only weird thing about this Northern Panhandle city in West Virginia is its abnormally low crime rate (well, that and the unusually high number of movies shot in the city. IMDB it, it’s pretty impressive!)

In 2012, Weirton had the fourth lowest number of crimes overall in the state—just 1,652 per 100,000 people. Those crimes included 1,566 property crimes and 86 violent crimes.

To put that into perspective, just take a look at Princeton. This city (which ranked 27th on our list) had a total of 8,151 crimes per 100,000 people, including 7,005 property crimes and 1,146 violent crimes, 46 per 100,000 of which were murders.

The Gilmer Free Press

4. Bridgeport

Where Weirton had an impressively low number of property crimes, and therefore overall crimes, Bridgeport earned its rank primarily for its low number of violent crimes—just 85 per 100,000 people.

Of those 85 violent crimes, there were zero murders, 12 rapes, 24 robberies, and 49 assaults per 100,000 people. Additionally, Bridgeport had 2,695 property crimes, including 12 vehicle thefts, 2,439 thefts, and 244 burglaries, for a low total of 2,780 crimes per 100,000 people.

The Gilmer Free Press

5. Oak Hill

With just 117 violent crimes per 100,000 people, Oak Hill was the sixth least violent place in the state overall. Of those 117 violent crimes, there were zero murders, 13 rapes, zero robberies, and 104 assaults per 100,000 people.

Oak Hill also had a pretty low number of property crimes in 2012. Per 100,000 people, there were just 2,555, including 78 vehicle thefts, 1,786 thefts, and 691 burglaries. All told, Oak Hill had the eighth lowest total number of crimes in the state—2,672 per 100,000 people.

The Gilmer Free Press

6. Keyser

This Mineral County city was not just the safest in the area, but with just 2,232 total crimes per 100,000 people, it was also one of the safest in the state. Of those 2,232 crimes, there were 2,085 property crimes and 147 violent crimes per 100,000 people.

To break this down further for you, those 2,085 property crimes included zero vehicle thefts, 1,605 thefts, and 480 burglaries. The violent crimes included just 18 robberies and 129 assaults—that’s no murders and no rapes for the entire year.

The Gilmer Free Press

7. Williamson

Home to both Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College, it may come as something of a surprise to find Williamson on our list, as oftentimes college towns are associated with crime—property crimes in particular.

Williamson, however, seems to be the exception to the rule, as it had one of the lowest numbers of property crime in the state in 2012—just 1,548 per 100,000 people. Of those property crimes, there were 63 vehicle thefts, 948 thefts, and 537 burglaries.

In addition, Williamson had a reported 284 violent crimes, making a total of 1,832 crimes per 100,000 people for the year.

The Gilmer Free Press

8. Ravenswood

Despite the fact that this city sounds like a dark place from Grimms’ Fairy Tales, it is actually very safe (and quite lovely, be the way). It had just 2,039 crimes per 100,000 people in 2012, including the sixth lowest number of property crimes, 1,806.

Additionally, Ravenswood had 233 violent crimes per 100,000 people. This may not exactly be as low as Bridgeport’s 85, or of course, our first two cities’ complete lack of violent crime; but compared to, say, Summersville where there were 1,174 violent crimes in 2012, Ravenswood sounds downright fantastic.

9. Vienna

Recently, we ranked Vienna one of the best places to live in West Virginia, based on its number of amenities, low cost of living, and of course, its low, low crime rate, particularly when it came to violent crime (or lack thereof!)

With just 121 violent crimes per 100,000 people, including zero murders, nine rapes, 28 robberies, and 84 assaults per 100,000 people, Vienna ranked seventh in the category of violent crime.

It also ranked pretty well (12th) for its 2,729 property crimes, making for a total of 2,850 crimes per 100,000 people for the entire year.

10. Nitro

Bringing our list to a close is the City of Nitro, where in 2012 there were 3,896 crimes per 100,000 people. Now that isn’t exactly the lowest total number of crimes we’ve seen (it ranked 17th in this category), but it more than made up for this with its lack of violence.

There were just 140 violent crimes per 100,000 people in this city in 2012, including zero murders, 14 rapes, 56 robberies, and 70 assaults.

To get a better idea of just how low this number really is, simply take a look at the most violent place we looked at, Summersville, where there were 1,174 violent crimes per 100,000 people in 2012.
Take Me Home, Country Roads

After reading this post, we hope you can see that West Virginia is way more than just a beautiful and historically rich state. It’s also filled with safe, family-friendly communities and is a wonderful place to call home.

If you happen to be looking for your very own West Virginia home, feel free to get in touch, because aside from writing illuminating posts like this one, we sell houses. And just like John Denver says, we can help you get to that place you belong. (We hear Weston is just lovely this time of year.)

I’m no crime expert, but I am guessing the reason these places were the safest is because they are all small towns, of course they will have less crime than the bigger cities in the state.

Surprise Weston made the list with the missing mother and daughter and the missing little girl.
No surprise Glenville, Gilmer County didn’t.

Based on facts it can be argued that Williamson and Shriver under-performed in its professional role for the Leading Creek School. The same is true for its lead as the outside expert for the auction barn site, and certainly it is true for its super botch role at Cedar Creek. Do we understand that regardless the firm was rewarded by the State by giving it additional work for core drilling and environmental work for the new Glenville site? The State touts that through the arranged sale of the Cedar Creek property citizens recouped money as a great deal. What the State is withholding is that partial recovery of our money included a trade off to build a new school on a site that would never have been selected under normal conditions. This means that the “recoup” has an undisclosed price attached to it. That price, had the State not blundered, is substitution of a much lower quality site for a new school for our children. Had the State not fouled up the new school would not have been on a dump site, one surrounded by filthy water during flooding, stuck among unsightly surroundings in a commercial zone, and in an area congested with traffic. The State can plaster lipstick on a pig, but when it is said and done Gilmer County’s children are stuck with a pig. Thanks a lot Governor Tomblin, the WV School Building Authority, and the State Board of Education.

Mr. Ramezan, it is no mystery why the GFP site is blocked. People in power in Gil can make a few telephone calls to politicians they control to demand that blockage occurs. They are dedicated to do their utmost to censor what occurs in Gil. The same individuals see to it that the Gazette and other major papers do not cover what goes on here. The good news is that on a daily basis more people in WV hear about the GFP and they rely on it to keep informed. Truth has a strange way of being impossible to contain, particularly in this information age. Keep up the good work GFP. Your community-minded efforts are contributing to making this area a better place to live and to raise children. Freedom and democracy are what it is about.

By Gil Censorship  on  10.27.2014

The OEPA told the State Board not to give it all back because they still had concerns the “local board leadership needed more support in making difficult personnel decisions” and four out of five members on this video don’t want to see the employee seniority list?Don’t want to know who’s teaching in our schools, what they’re certified in and so forth? How are they going to have a clue when it comes to RIFs and Transfers?

That’s about as funny as Simmons saying the board is dysfunctional to RESA who wants to take over county finance! Simmons it’s been your board under your leadership for the past three years.

By Now That's Funny  on  10.27.2014

At the end of the tape, Mr Ramezan asks a legitimate question, and the panel of educators gives the look of DEER in the headlights, AND THEN NEVER ANSWERS THE QUESTION OR EVEN MAKES REFERENCE TO IT!!!

This sort of behavior has to come to a stop and stop now.

ALL of those people have to go. Norma Hurley is the only one giving any true facts, the elite crowd of better dressed than usual had a lot of words and every word was UNTRUE complete BS meant to get over on the citizens those MINION consider stupid.

The trouble makers in Gilmer County need to be forced out by any means necessary or NEVER will there be any type of life here for anybody else.

The local law enforcement agencies that includes the Gilmer County Sheriff and even the state police are TOLD what to do by civilians that ARE NOT ELECTED, but instead have bought power with the dollar. ALL of these people need to go, I don’t give a d*mn who they think they are.

ENOUGH is ENOUGH and that NO ANSWER, ANSWER by William K was about the stupidest thing I have ever seen in my entire life, and it is time to take action.

TAR and FEATHERS is the first thing that comes to my mind as to what the consequence should be for these FOOLERS Of small children and Gilmer County Adults.

By Concerned Citizens of Gilmer County  on  10.28.2014

To GFP readers and Mr. Ramazon:
If in fact,  GFP has been blocked in state schools.  Congratulations!
That PROVES the state educators can’t stand the truth coming out!
There is nothing naughty or of porn content that I have ever seen on your site.

By keep printing the truth  on  10.28.2014

Censors don’t realize that when a student hears that the GFP web site is blocked they beat it to a computer soon as they can to see what the issue is about and they spread the news to their friends to increase attention to the web site. In fact, local censors have unwittingly extended circulation of the GFP throughout WV as an unintended consequence of trying mind control over the masses.

The Gilmer Free Press

Larry Lee Allman

Age 62, of Jane Lew, WV passed away on Wednesday, October 22, 2014 in Ruby Memorial Hospital of Morgantown following an extended illness.

He was born January 09, 1952 and was a life-long resident of Jane Lew, WV.

He is survived by four brothers: Kenneth Allman and wife Marsha of Buckhannon, Robert Allman and wife Shelley of Lost Creek, John David Allman and Paul Allman of Jane Lew. He is also survived by two nieces; Rachana Hebb and Erica Allman and three nephews; Joseph Dean, Brandon Allman and Dustin Allman.

Larry was preceded in death by his mother Betty Jean (Freeman) Allman; and father Archie Lee Allman.

Larry was a long time employee of Mountain State Waste of Weston, WV.

Larry was known to all as a kind, loving and compassionate man. He took pride in the family farm and was very meticulous in all his endeavors. His love for the outdoors was immense as he enjoyed hunting, fishing, horseback riding and cruising across the fields of the family farm on either his tractor or all-terrain vehicle. Larry was also an avid gun collector. During his time of relaxation, Larry would always take time to call family and friends just to say hello and express his love and caring spirit toward us. He was especially fond of his nephew Dustin and sister-in-law Shelley who often accompanied him to his yearly Christmas party at work. Larry also loved to watch western shows on television as there was not an episode of either Bonanza or Gunsmoke that Larry was not familiar with. His expression of love for his family and friends, enjoying the simple things in life and not wanting for anything will always be remembered. He touched many of our lives and his memory will forever live in our hearts. Thank you, Larry, for being there for all of us.

In addition, the family would like to extend a special thanks to all of the doctors, nurses, and caregivers who cared for Larry during his courageous battle and extended illness: Ruby Memorial Hospital and Maddison Center of Morgantown, WV and St Francis Hospital, Charleston, WV.

A Celebration of Larry’s Life will occur on Sunday afternoon, October 26 from 2:00 to 6:00 PM at Hardman-Paletti Funeral Home 730 N. Main Ave Weston, WV where funeral services will be held on Monday morning October 27 at 11:00 AM with Pastor Mark Anderson officiating.

passed away October 09, 2014.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas A. Richardson; brothers, James J. Gillooly, Jr. and John Patrick Gillooly; and sister Mary Agnes Cooper.

She loved everything in nature especially watching and feeding her beautiful birds. Everyone commented on her flower garden and she really loved her gardenia in particular. She was really big on sunsets and could spend hours gazing at the full moon. She loved the little things in life. She took great pride in her knowledge of birds and great pleasure in passing that knowledge along to her grandchildren.

She loved good music and was a huge fan of the steel guitar. Although she never mastered an instrument herself, her admiration for and friendship with a long list of musicians is well known. Richardson will always be remembered as a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

Left to cherish her memory are children, sons, James P. (Micki) Richardson, Shawn A. (Julie) Richardson and Kathy (Robert) White; one sister, Joan Paisant of Louisiana; grandchildren, Jayne (White) Brooks of Memphis, Tenn, Britney Richardson and Jonathon, Katie and Colt Richardson; one great-grandchild, Jadelyn Staunton as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

October 23, 2014 Exercise

The Gilmer Free Press

 

October 23, 2014 Exercise Planned to Improve Responses to Environmental Emergencies and Disasters

Increasing Community Readiness

West Virginia’s Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (WVDHSEM) Region 4, in coordination with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will participate in Appalachian Drought, a full-scale exercise that will test responses to a water emergency on October 23, 2014.

The exercise will involve nine central West Virginia counties: Barbour, Braxton, Gilmer, Lewis, Pendleton, Randolph, Tucker, Upshur, and Webster.

The exercise aims to assess existing plans and identify areas where planning can be improved, with a goal of serving communities better during disasters and other emergencies.

The exercise follows the water crises earlier this year in Charleston, W.V and Toledo, Ohio. Residents of all nine counties may see water tanker trucks and other equipment at each county’s designated water distribution locations during the exercise.

Other participating agencies will include:

-    Emergency Management Offices for all nine counties involves;

-    County Health Departments;

-    Public Service Districts;

-    Local Water Utilities;

-    Agricultural Extension Centers;

-    National Weather Service (NWS)

The exercise scenario, developed by U.S. EPA, is based on widespread drought conditions that have affected counties in central WV.  For the past two years, the West Virginia Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and U.S. EPA have planned and participated in region-wide exercises.

Governor’s One Shot Whitetail Hunt and Banquet at Stonewall Resort - October 24-25, 2014

The Gilmer Free Press

The 2014 West Virginia Governor’s One Shot Whitetail Hunt event will take place October 24 and 25, operating out of Stonewall Resort State Park near Weston in Lewis County.

This will be the eighth year for the fundraising event that presents the proceeds to the Hunters Helping the Hungry (HHH) Program, administered by the Division of Natural Resources in partnership with the West Virginia Food Bank in Gassaway.

Dignitaries attending will include Governor Earl Ray Tomblin, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin and West Virginia native Brig. General “Chuck” Yeager, retired, who will participate in the hunt and be involved in the award banquet, raffles and live auction Saturday evening.

Tickets for the banquet are available at all levels, individual and corporate.

Contact Wendy Greene at 304.558.2754 or email for information or to make reservations.

“I’m honored to once again participate in the One Shot Whitetail Hunt,” Governor Tomblin said. “This program, which has raised nearly $400,000 for the Hunters Helping the Hungry Program, is a true representation of West Virginia’s neighbor-helping-neighbor philosophy, as it has been extremely successful in aiding thousands of families in need across our state.”

HHH is vital to providing thousands of pounds of highly nutritious meat to needy families throughout West Virginia, including nearly 38,000 pounds donated by hunters in 2013. Private donations are needed to pay for processing and distribution of the venison to clients in the 48 counties served by the food bank.

The Gilmer Free Press


Since its inaugural event in 2007, the One Shot has raised and donated $390,000 to the HHH Program, including $65,000 raised in 2013.

The event is supported by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, volunteers from the private business sector and individuals who act as guides for participating hunters.

All hunting takes place on private land so as not to interfere with other hunters.

Only antlerless deer are harvested, helping to control populations on those lands.

All venison harvested during the hunt is donated directly to the HHH program.

The hunt will begin with the traditional “sighting in of the rifles” at the Stonewall shooting range Friday afternoon and Friday evening the hunters are introduced to the guides and landowners.

The hunt will take place Saturday, October 25, 2015.

The program concludes Saturday night with a reception followed by an awards banquet.

Corridor H Segment Expected to Open by Late November

The Gilmer Free Press

Another section of Corridor H in West Virginia is expected to open by Thanksgiving.

Corridor H coordinator Tommy Collins says the 1.5-mile segment is near the connector to WV Highway 42 and WV Highway 93 in the Mount Storm area.

Collins says another 4-mile section could open by the end of the year.

But he says an early spring opening is more likely due to the weather.

Corridor H Authority president Robbie Morris says construction of the four-lane highway is ahead of schedule.

Corridor H is the only section of the Appalachian Corridor system that has not been finished.

When it is completed, it will connect Interstate 79 near Weston with the junction of Interstates 81 and 66 in Front Royal, Virginia.

October 23, 2014 Exercise Planned to Improve Responses to Environmental Emergencies and Disasters

Increasing Community Readiness

West Virginia’s Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (WVDHSEM) Region 4, in coordination with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will participate in Appalachian Drought, a full-scale exercise that will test responses to a water emergency on October 23, 2014.

The exercise will involve nine central West Virginia counties: Barbour, Braxton, Gilmer, Lewis, Pendleton, Randolph, Tucker, Upshur, and Webster.

The exercise aims to assess existing plans and identify areas where planning can be improved, with a goal of serving communities better during disasters and other emergencies.

The exercise follows the water crises earlier this year in Charleston, W.V and Toledo, Ohio. Residents of all nine counties may see water tanker trucks and other equipment at each county’s designated water distribution locations during the exercise.

Other participating agencies will include:

-    Emergency Management Offices for all nine counties involves;

-    County Health Departments;

-    Public Service Districts;

-    Local Water Utilities;

-    Agricultural Extension Centers;

-    National Weather Service (NWS)

The exercise scenario, developed by U.S. EPA, is based on widespread drought conditions that have affected counties in central WV.  For the past two years, the West Virginia Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and U.S. EPA have planned and participated in region-wide exercises.
