From the poem “Mother” by Howard Johnson: ““M” is for the many things she gave me, “O” means only that she’s growing old. “T” is for the tears she shed to save me, “H” is for her heart of purest gold. “E” is for her eyes with love light shining, “R” means right and right she’ll always be.

When I was a member of the United Mine Workers of America, I believed it was my duty and in my personal interest to understand the contract inside out. I read it over and over again and soon felt I was competent to interpret its wording.

March 1 came in with a high flood of the Little Muskingum and March 31 left with the water running high.

The 2017 Midwest American Cheerpower was held April 2 at the Columbus Convention Center. The Ohio Valley All Stars ‘Lady of Legendz Parkersburg, WV’ participated. An interesting informative day.

In 1815 on a certain Sunday, men gathered to fell trees and open a small clearing in otherwise dense woods at a place designated Woodsfield. In exchange for their hard work, there would be a large kettle of stew. The recipe was well known--first, a huge kettle of gallons’ capacity was placed upon the ground, resting upon three stones, and a fire was kindled under it.

March 1 came in like a lion. Rain, thunder storms, and wind. The Little Muskingum River was higher than the usual flood. The water went over Route 26 at Dye Dip and Adams north of town, south at county line, Route 138 was flooded. We drove through the water to get to Matamoras--a no no!
