Feb. 23a Happy Friday morning one and
Feb. 23 a You probably haven't noticed
that we get somewhat political on this site.
Feb. 23 a Always staying on t he side
of cool, calm, and collect....
Feb. 23 a Have you ever heard anything
so dumb as arming teachers in schools. Not sure how many teachers there
are out there but our guess, we would have more armed teachers than those
serving in the military!
Feb. 23 a For instance, Clay High Principal
Crystal Gibson stands all of 5 foot tall and can't weigh more than 90 pounds.
Can you see her lugging around an 8 pound pistol on her hip?????
Feb. 23 a And then there's the problem
of arming an already nut job teacher.
Feb. 23 a Your President's idea to
arm em, well, sure dumbarss at his worst
Feb. 23 a The Communicator provides

Feb. 22 later p Yesterday was the final
day of our annual Buddy can you spare a dime campaign. With all the stuff
going on with the strike and Courtland news, we neglected to finish off
Feb. 22 later p Several have already
donated . Those folks are appreciated greatly and are helping to keep this
vehicle of near knowledge up and running.

Feb. 22 p This is day one of the Govt
employee strike to end starvation wages and improve hospitalization coverage
Feb. 22p Thousands upon thousands of
teachers, janitors, bus drivers, maintenance workers from every county
in the state are in and around the Statehouse. Inside the rotunda, chants
and cheers are rumbling thru both houses of the Legislature. One in particular
calls for beheading Senate Prez, Mitch Carmichael.
Feb. 22 p Leadership plans call for
keeping some of the members at County Courthouses across the state.
Feb. 22 p based on t he number of motorists
honking their horns as they pass, teachers have the support of this
Feb. 22p MetroNews has a bunch
of pictures online of the Statehouse congregation
Feb. 22 p here's good write
up on the strike, also from MetroNews.
Feb. 22 p At 11am this morning,
Day One is a rousing success!
Feb. 22 early early a School
employees are going to bat today for the benefit of all govt employees.
It's a heavy burden and one that will take a strong effort to hold the
Feb. 22 a For the first time ever,
teachers and school service personnel will combine their numbers to grow
an effort to bring a living wage enhancement to one and all.
Feb. 22 a For the first time ever,
school system in the state will be closed due to a work stoppage.
Feb. 22 a According to an American
Federation of Teachers- Clay
post Wed evening: Tomorrow we will be organizing and informational
picket at the Clay courthouse. You may choose to go in the AM (7:30am)
or PM (12:00pm) or both! Bring your signs! If you choose
to come to the Capitol, be sure to get there early! 55 counties are off
tomorrow, it will be packed!
Feb. 22 a Our best guesstimate, the
second floor rotunda area at the Capitol may hold no more than 3000 spectators.
Expect that place to be more than "packed".
Feb. 22 a With such a small area at
the Capitol and so many on strike, the part about informational pickets
at all local Courthouses, that might be a darn good idea. Remember it's
an "informational" picket only.
Feb. 22 a On the other side of the
coin, state leaders are already applying dirty tricks.
Feb. 22 a Like , making it unlawful
for union dues to be automatically withdrawn from worker pay checks, year
after year. It's called PAYCHECK
Feb. 22 a Like, changing the law so
union reps in the school system are not
eligible to be paid for time to do their union jobs.
Feb. 22 a Fortunately, Senators
Facemire and Romano, voted Nay to that union busting bill.
Feb. 22 a And, if you can't beat
what it takes to be a certified teacher, to lower the credentials so
any company suck dog catcher can be hired to teach in public schools.
Feb. 22 a And finally, if getting rid
of teaching credentials doesn't work, our good Rep buddies in the Senate
have introduced legislation to start
up, for profit, charter schools in West Virginia.
Feb. 22 a Our Gov has taken enough
time off from his leisure resort in Greenbrier County, to issue a statement,
that jolly jolly jolly, we've already provided you with a $17 per paycheck
pay raise. What more could you want????
Feb. 22 a Well, how about treating
school service personnel with the same amount of pay increase?
feb 22 a How about providing all state
govt workers with a decent wage increase?
Feb. 22 a The big issue for this
statewide strike is unthinkable pro corporation changes to hospitalization
coverage. As of this posting, the best the R's
in Charleston can do is Band-Aid the puss filled pool of infection.
Feb. 22 a We understand there
will be pickets in front of school in the county.
Feb. 22 a Want to do something to support
Feb. 22 a At least honk and wave when
you drive pass.
Feb. 22 a Handing out hot coffee might
be a good idea.
Feb. 22 a For those at the Courthouse,
how about you all coming out during lunch break and shaking some hands
and offering support. Remember , Courthouse workers may benefit from the
efforts of the school system strikers in the way of less costly healthcare..
Feb. 22 a For our clickers, you are
watching history in the making today.
Feb. 21 p The safest city in West Virginia
is Weirton, a community of 19,067 in the state’s northern tip. Weirton
is one of only three U.S. cities to border two states on two sides, and
its own on the remaining two sides. The city’s violent crime rate is just
a third of the statewide average. Here's the
top ten safest towns in the Mountain State.
Feb. 21 p Once a year, in Feb., West
Virginia residents are allowed to contest property taxes in front of their
County Commission. That's called a Board of Review.
Feb. 21 p Assessors make mistakes,
transpose numbers, maybe mix up one parcel for another and so forth.
Feb. 21 p How many show up for Board
of Review? Very very few. Some years, none! Does that make sense?
Feb. 21 p During Feb., there is one
day set aside for mineral owners (coal and natural gas). That one day is
called Minerals Day and that happened yesterday.
Feb. 21 p In the entire county, only
2 took the time to contest huge increases in assessment. Both cases came
via a telephone conference.
Feb. 21 p Both told the CCC, their
mineral assessment increased greatly. One lady said her's increased 1000%.
Feb. 21 p Both cases were taken
under advisement with no decision made Tuesday.
Feb. 21 a For this hump day morning
update, there's a bunch
Feb. 21 a Govt workers are poised for
a work stoppage Thursday morning. The strike is almost a state wide thing.
There are a few County Superintendents telling employees, no you ain't
going on strike. Those lone hold out counties could be the center of attention
if leadership turns to a rolling strike scenario.
Feb. 21 a Our Gov has not been
the center of attention for some time. The guy spends a great deal of his
time coaching basketball in Greenbrier County. The strike effort has been
flaming for 2 weeks but not a peep from Demorat turned Republicrat, Gov
Feb. 21 a Yesterday, the distant Governor
issued a weird little written statement where he actually said very little.
It sounded like a guy who has yet to offer leadership or incite. It sounds
like Gov Justice has his mind elsewhere, has little interest in his elected
position, and well, ready to bail out.
Feb. 21 a The actual strike is set
to begin Thursday morning with an organizational meeting set for this afternoon.
Feb. 21 a Yesterday, Clayberry Schools
posted on their website, all local schools will be closed Thursday and
Friday. Depending on how you look at the school calendar, no one will lose
anything in their pay checks even if the strike goes several days longer.
Feb. 21 a With Republicrats in solid
control of the House, Senate, Gov's position, and Attorney General slot,
things could get nasty in short order. Strikers do have a leg up. It's
Feb. 21 a Govt workers make up a big
chunk of voters. Without the support of teachers, bus drivers, cooks, etc.,
there could be big changes come May 8th.
Feb. 21 a We hope those electorial
changes come no matter which direction the strike goes. Come
this time tomorrow, it's time to support those carrying the load for better
wages and improved hospitalization plans
Feb. 21 a For our distant clickers,
so far, the Legislature has offered little in the way of better wages nor
improved PEIA insurance coverage
Feb. 21 a Locally....
Feb. 21 a Many individuals took
advantage of Govt assistance after the Great Wash Out in June 2016. Some,
many, of those outstretched hands were greedy turds untouched by high high
wawa. The welfare mentality Clayonians were willing to lie to agencies
to receive something they didn't deserve.
Feb. 21 a So far, only one person,
51 year old, Thomas Holcomb, has been indicted on flood fraud charges.
Feb. 21 a Yesterday morning, Thomas
Holcomb accepted a plea deal and plead guilty to flood fraud. In an odd
move on his part, Holcomb asked to be sentenced right away. Judge Alsop
accommodated and provided Holcomb with a behind bars fun time for up to
Feb. 21 a There's not a family in County
Clay that has not been touched by the drug epidemic.
Feb. 21 a Otherwise hard working, decent,
people get hooked and start down the wrong road to support their bad habit
Feb. 21 a Such is the case with 36
year old, Garrin Osborne. Married with a family, building a new house,
soft spoken, a model person until drugs kicked his hind end.
Feb. 21 a What could be worser than
robbing a church?
feb 21 a For Osborne, it was stealing
from a Cub Scout group, not once but 10 times in a three county area. Some
interesting details in the next Communicator.
Feb. 21 a Yesterday, in Court land,
a cleaned up looking Garrin Osborn plead guilty to felony stealing from
the Scout group. Sentencing for Osborne comes on April 15th. He's looking
at 10 years behind bars. No matter what happens on the 15th, his life will
never be the same.
Feb. 21 a Full details on both cases
in the next Communicator.
Feb. 21 a Check back later today for
info on yesterday's Board of Review where County Commissioners heard from
two groups wanting their taxes reduced.
Feb. 21 a As a teaser.... it didn't
go well for the taxpayers.
Feb. 20 p Names on election ballots,
the position of those names, can make a big difference in outcomes.
Feb. 20 p About the only local race
this time around is the Sch Bd contest. With three positions open and 8
candidates, ballot placement is important
Feb. 20 p Why? People start at
the top of the list and make their 3 marks and quit. Often, it's the first
three names they've heard of.
Feb. 20 p This morning, Sch bd candidate
names were drawn to decide their position on the May 8th ballot
Feb. 20 p From top to bottom, here
goes: Lolita Nutter; Cheryl White; Dustin Stone; Donna Bird Salisbury;
Dave Mullins; Nora Lantz; Linky Poo; and Morgan Triplett.
Feb. 20 p We'll post sometime in the
morning: Darin Osborne and Thomas Holcomb guilty pleas.
Feb. 19 a We usually check the
web site every day or so to check for updates, meeting minutes and
Feb. 19 a Something happened to the
thang Feb. 12th. The change or more likely a screw up, eliminated such
searches. No agendas, no meeting minutes, can be seen.
Feb. 19 a Day Light Savings Time returns
Feb. 19 a Did you know, not all countries
make the time change of 60 minutes. Three years ago, North Korea
minutes is just right for them.
Feb. 19 a Germany was the first country
to make DST standard practice and that was way
back in 1916.
Feb. 19 a
Standard time, Winter time, Normal time.
Feb. 19 a For a fairly in-depth look
at what's wrong with Legislative leadership leading up to Thursday's public
take a look here.
Feb. 18 p Tonya Colegrove, 42, of Clay,
see OBITUARY page
feb 18 p Thomas Lyons, 81, of
Ivydale, see OBITUARY page
Feb. 18 a How about a subject everybody
Feb. 18 a In Jan 1969, right after
one of our felon Governors, came to the throne, 12,000 State Road workers
went out on strike. They were working for 90 cents on the hour while union
workers were around $8 an hour.
Feb. 18 a The next day, Arch
Moore fired all of em. Arch and his Republicrat backers showed their true
colors real quick.
Feb. 18 a 28 years ago, in late
Feb., teachers went out on strike and stayed off work for 10 days. Charleston
leadership kept yelling, we're going to fire every one of ya!! That didn't
happen and teachers went back to the classroom with a $5000 raise.
Feb. 18 a Whether it was 1969 or 1990,
hard feelings remain for the scabs that crossed picket lines in an attempt
to suck up to leadership.
Feb. 18 a Yesterday, after a huge rally
under and outside the Gold Dome, the
announcement came, teachers and school service personnel, will go on
strike Thursday Feb. 22nd if the Legislature doesn't fix PEIA insurance
and provide a modest pay increase.
Feb. 18 a With Repubs fully in control
and some already screaming, "We will NOT be intimidated by those TEACHERS!!",
look for calls to fire em all.
Feb. 18 a What will really help the
cause is, if State Road workers and other govt workers (including county
workers) refuse to cross picket lines or stay home from work.
Feb. 18 a What will really hurt the
effort to bring a living wage and benefits to govt workers will be, when
the noodle backs slither back to work. That's a chicken shirt thing to
do but often happens.
Feb. 18 a Back in the mid 70's, the
Ace Cub Reporter worked in the sub basement (did you know there's a partial
basement under the main basement at the Capitol?) as a printer. The lad
and several others organized a union to represent printers.
Feb. 18 a Just when he thought everything
was going peachy, he turned around and there was no one behind him. All
of his buddies had POOF!!!, had disappeared.
Feb. 18 a A 30 day walk without pay
etched that attempt in the Mel Gibson Look Alike's mind
Feb. 18 a This time around, 1000's
, 10's of 1000's really, are poised to walk out. That number along with
sympathizers, might just do the trick.
Feb. 18 a What's different in 2018
is, Repubs have both houses in the Legislature and a turn coat Repub as
Governor. Couple that with a corporate backed Attorney General, there might
be big problems.
Feb. 18 a We've already seen what happens
when the Corporate leaders are in charge.
Feb. 18 a Earlier this week, an amendment
to raise wages 3% was on the floor for passage and our very own Delegate,
Roger Hanshaw, cast the deciding vote to kill that tiny wage increase.
Feb. 18 a TV-8 provided way
too brief coverage of teacher wages.
Feb. 18 a On a higher level, Drumpf
had a particularly crummy week. Here's a world view on the disaster called,
Feb. 18 a You might be thinking, gosh,
all they do is bash the elephant party. There's plenty of reasons to do
such but the biggest one is, what used to be the Republicrat party, it
ain't. Replacing the standards of Eisenhower goals are Corporate shills.
Feb. 18 a We're down to our last three
days of our 2018 online beggin campaign.
Feb. 18 a We appreciate those that
have already donated to the cause of keeping independent news available
available online and in print.
Feb. 18 a For those that haven't
coughed up hard earned dollars, please consider doing so ASAP.
Feb. 18 a Without your help, a bunch
of rotten stuff will be swept under the carpet and no one will ever know.
That's how Clayberry did things before The Communicator and this web portal

Feb. 17 a True the Lady Panthers beat
Braxton County twice this basketball season but...
Feb. 17 a Last night, during Sectional
Tournament action, the Lady's did not have their A, B, nor C game on.
Feb. 17 a Final score for the season
ender, 53 for Braxton, 34 for us.
Feb. 17 a There is a West Virginia
connection in the Parkland Florida high school mass shooting. Here's
Feb. 16 5:15 update Several thousand
protesters are in the Capitol building. Gold Dome Badges are demanding
that teacher and school service personnel leave the State House, that the
building is being closed
Feb. 16 5:14 p The protesters
are refusing to leave. Protesters are very vocal with their resistance.
Feb. 16 5:14 p Why do the Guards want
em out? Why are the Strikers refusing to leave?
Feb. 16 5:15p Same answer for both.
The Protesters know the Legislature will reconvene at 6pm tonight.
Feb. 16 5:15 p Republicrat Senators
and Delegates know, it's easier to short change the working class when
the workers are not around to see what's happening.
Feb. 16 5:15p This could become a small
scale Wounded Knee. Well... that might be an over statement
Feb. 16 p Regional media outlets are
carrying pictures of a bunch of teachers and school service personnel
rallying at the Gold Dome in search of better pay and PEIA insurance coverage.
Feb. 16 p Sounds like things got pretty
heated up in the Senate Chamber with the peanut gallery packed tight.
Feb. 16 p Around noon, even before
the entire group made their way inside the building, the Legislature shut
down for the afternoon.
Feb. 16 p Saturday is the real
first day of protests with attendance to be in the 1000's. Their welcome
message is, get something done or you won't be around after the May 8th
Feb. 16 p In all the pictures we have
seen, we haven't spotted our Delegate, Roger Hanshaw. His challenger,
David Walker has been visible including carrying signs during other informational
Feb. 16 p Smart move on Walker's part
Feb. 16 p About a million years ago,
Charlie Osborne was elected to the Sch Bd. He was one of those that always
marched with the crowd never bucking the home team.
Feb. 16 p Grace Stone was the
first one to note, Osborne was an elected official in Clayberry but living
in Nicholas County. Stone was positive of her assessment and even showed
copies of Charlie O's Summersville utility bills to the Ace Cub Reporter.
Such living out of county, that's a no no.
Feb. 16 p Getting Charlie ousted was
one of The Communicator's first efforts in reform. Eventually, after the
first Levy vote, Osborne was tossed from office.
Feb. 16 p The old feller has held a
grudge since way back when
Feb. 16 p More recently. last year,
Charlie was at Council meeting, when his daughter ( Town Recorder) was
forced to resign after she moved out of the Town. Once again O was heated
up and blamed The Communicator for Dwana loosing her Recorder job.
Feb. 16 p Seems, that violating
State Code on residency and trying to stay in elected position, that problem
runs in the Osborne family.
Feb. 16 p Osborne must think, the messenger
is the problem not the problem itself
Feb. 16 p Charlie is the Dad of Dwana
Murphy, the wawa operator that was fired on Dec 5th from the Town of Clay
and then refired 4 weeks later. Our guess, hard feelings bubble close to
his boiling point.
Feb. 16 p Today around 11:45,
after leaving the Magistrate's office, Charlie showed up at the Communicator
office in beautiful Two Run.
Feb. 16 th Without the common, Hello
or Howdy, Osborne demanded a copy of the near award winning newspaper of
choice, the one with his daughter's write up aboard. After
a few minutes of digging, that edition was found and Little O coughed up
Feb. 16 p It was then that Charlie's
real intent came up. O started asking questions about reporting and sources.
Feb. 16 p About then he was told to
get the F out. His blood pressure blossomed as
he refused to comply.
Feb. 16 p The Mel Gibson look alike
explained, I have to tell you three times, get out, before calling Badges
Feb. 16 p Not leaving, and with two
more, Get the F Out's made, threatening comments were made by O and the
call for Law was made.
Feb. 16 p Somewhere in the mix, O pulled
back his withered, boney fist a couple times.
Feb. 16 p Charlie O chicken shirted
out before Badges arrived. Before leaving the private office, Little O
threatened to meet up with the Mel Gibson Look Alike, "Down the Road".
Feb. 16 p After providing an
oral statement to Black Shirts, the request was made, would you please
have a Come to Jesus talk with Charlie Osborne. We hope they do.
Feb. 16 p Folks, those of you that
depend on the newspaper and this site for daily nuggets of info, don't
worry. Rest assured, even being short and fat, the Ace Cub reporter can
out run the 100 year old, feebled, Charlie Osborne as of this date.
Feb. 16 p But this brings up
a good point.
Feb. 16 p There may be a time
when bandages and ointment may be needed for the handsome scribe of record.
Feb. 16 p With that in mind, now's
a good time to donate to the annual online beggin campaign that helps keep
this website alive and churning.
Feb. 16 p You can use the PaylPal button
on the home page or snail mail your million dollars (or check) to: DELTA;

Feb. 16 a With Sutton Dam letting out
wawa, a fairly heavy rain expected for today, Saturday, Sunday and Monday,
Watch should be taken seriously.
Feb. 16 a Yesterday was posted that
there was no mention of Clayberry Schools being closed today. Within an
hour or so, the Pentagon finally got around to letting the world know,
Yelp, they're closed down today
Feb. 16 a Hundreds of teachers
and service personnel are expected at
the Capitol on Friday and then again for a state-wide rally on Saturday.
Feb. 16 a Schools in seven counties
— Brooke, Cabell, Clay, Lincoln, Mason, Wayne and Wetzel —
will be closed Friday because of an employee work stoppage.
Feb. 16 a The wet stuff will make for
a sucky day of protest by Govt workers of all stripes
Feb. 16 a There's no snow or ice on
the ground and temps across the state are well into the upper 50's, yet
over a dozen school systems are
shut down today.
Feb. 16 a Tonight the CHS Lady Panthers
enter Sectional tournament play up in Braxton County. We've beat Braxton
twice this year and hope to make it three in a row. Go Lady Panthers. Braxton
is one of our arch rival opponents.

tragedy. One year ago yesterday, Drumpf signed his first ever stand alone
legislation to allow mentally challenged Americans to purchase and possess
Feb. 16 a while all eyes were on Florida
coverage of the school shooting, the Congress removed funding for much
of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Feb. 16 a It's been a sad week in the
land of opportunity.
Feb. 15 p About everybody in the county
says, Clay County Schools will be closed on Friday.
Feb. 15 p Social media sites say likewise
via the penmanship of Sch Boardster Susan Bodkins
Feb. 15 p A couple parents we talked
to complained, they haven't received a robo call, letter, nope, not any
Feb. 15 p As of noon today, the school's
web site shows no such school closing.
Feb. 15 p With a $20m budget to work
with, it's a sad state of affairs when the official school site says nothing
abut keeping the rug rats home for the day..
Feb. 15 p There is no doubt that tomorrow
will be the beginning of the school walk out with many teachers and
other school personnel heading to Charleston to protest the crime of basing
PEIA increases on total family income.
Feb. 15 p Saturday will be the biggy
rally in and around the Gold Dome.
Feb. 15 p Might be fun to go down there
just to watch the elected folks sweat it out when 10,000 employees raise
H with em.
Feb. 14 a In our feeble wittle way,
we managed to publish yet another COMMUNICATOR. On news stands now
in four counties. The stuff you can't find anywhere else, it's in this
Feb. 14 a Our lead story provides the
details on the big screw up in Court land.
Feb. 14 a On that same topic.....
Feb. 14 a Mark Workman manages
to get in trouble with the law every few months.
Feb. 14 a Last year, he shot his own
Father. Workman's trial was slated for yesterday.
Feb. 14 a Instead of going smooth and
easy, the Prosecutor's office did not have their witnesses ready.
Feb. 14 a The Workman case was
dismissed with prejudice. Mark Workman is a free man once again.
Feb. 14 a Think how much $$$ was wasted
on jurors, attorney's, mileage, a nd Judge time yesterday.
Feb. 14 a Actually three trials were
Feb. 14 a In addition to the Workman
Feb. 14 a Jereme Ward was a no show.
Judges don't like that. A capias was issued with bond set at $100K
Feb. 14 a Denver Rucker is the guy
that blew up his Valley View pot factory a couple years ago as Badges tried
to arrest him. Sentencing for Rucker is set for March 19th.
Feb. 14 a Natasha Hudnall and side
kick Justin Lee Brown were also to be tried Tuesday. They were there as
were all the costly demands of law. The Jury was seated and opening statements
were made before lunch break. After lunch, both took a plea and the case
was over. Sentencing is also set for March 19th.
Feb. 14 a Once again, all the expense
and then the two copped a plea.
Feb. 14 a Last night the largest high
school in the state, Cabel Midland, put it all over the Lady Panthers,
37 to 14. They came, they saw, and they smashed us
Feb. 14 a We saw the first of the school
employee pickets last night.
Feb. 14 a Before the CHS ballgame,
upwards of 25 were outside the school staging an informational picket.
Feb. 14 a Based on the number of horn
honkers and no finger flippers seen, there is good support for teachers,
janitors, cooks, and bus drivers.
Feb. 14 a Noticed last night was House
of Delegate candidate David Walker who was sporting a "FIX PEIA" sign prominently
during the picket. Our guess, Walker's chance of getting elected, just
Feb. 14 a Check out the latest Communicator
for details on Delegate Roger Hanshaw's screw up by voting against working
families earlier this week. Hanshaw's ad campaign states, he's working
for families. Unfortunately, the families he's working for ain't working
Feb. 14 a Across the state,
school employees are set to go out on a strike. No one in the public knows
when that will happen.
Feb. 14 a With the kids off school
Friday (no that wasn't on the school schedule), it sure would be a fine
time to start the walk out by shutting down Clayberry schools and heading
to the Gold Dome to let the Republicrat Legislature and Gov. know, they
ain't taking it anymore
Feb. 12 p Miriam Sizemore,
88, of Clay, see OBITUARY page
Feb. 12 p From AFT-Clay Rep, Brittany
Dolly "We are overwhelmingly unified statewide. We shared our totals
and now we are moving forward in unison waiting for a statewide action.
This is a process and while we are waiting on specifics of a statewide
action, we will also continue to take local action to keep the pressure
on. There has been a press release this evening, so please check media
sources. There will also be a joint press release tomorrow with AFT-WV
and WVEA presidents. Also, please see AFT-WV and WVEA websites (and this
page) for accurate information. We do not want misinformation circulating."
Please prepare to attend the Statewide Call to Action and Rally Saturday
at the Capitol at 1pm. We will be preparing carpools, so stay tuned for
more information. We also have local actions tentatively planned for this
week, be sure to like AFT-Clay and invite community members, parents, and
friends to like our page as well to stay up-to-date with the most current
information so everyone can act in unity with us. In solidarity, Brittany
Feb. 12 a We've got a nasty mix of
rain, sleet, snow and then starting over again early this morning.
Feb. 12 a Be careful out there
Feb. 12 a Tonight the Sch Bd meets
at the Pentagon beginning at 6pm. With a strike looming over their heads,
might be an interesting meeting to attend. State Law requires that a meeting
agenda include, date, time, place, and purpose. Notice, the Sch
Bd agenda does not meet that muster. If someone wanted to, any decision
made during this gathering could be challenged.

Feb. 12 a Until we get it put to bed
and out the door, limited updates
Feb. 12 a School employees voted overwhelmingly
to go out on strike. The state-wide consensus was made public yesterday.
When you add up the teacher and school service personnel tally, here in
Clayberry, it was close to 90% ready to walk.
Feb. 12 a We can expect selective rolling
walkouts this week including here in Clayberry.
Feb. 12 a As for a state-wide strike,
unless the Legislature makes big changes and does so in black and white,
a state wide strike is most likely to happen.
Feb. 12 a Over dinner the other
night, one table away, one teacher reported to her friends, my principal
told me we would be fired if we went on strike.
Feb. 12 a With a teacher shortage and
well over 700 positions vacant already, that's the biggest pile of crap
Feb. 12 a Real questions are: Will
they try to keep schools open? Will personnel be paid for days off or will
they be paid at the end of the year? And finally, what does the Pentagon
do with the scabs that cross picket lines? Have those folks been told,
you will be paid if you show up?
Feb. 12 a It's an exciting time to
be in the news business.
Feb. 11 9am The National Weather Service
has changed that Flash Flood Watch into a Flash Flood Warning.
Feb. 11 a Heavy Rain coming down this
morning. The Flash Flood Watch remains in force. For those along creeks
and small streams, be alert.
Feb. 11 a The Night of Champions held
over in Glenville didn't go well for the Lady Panthers Basketball team.
We came up short by around 40 points
Feb. 11 a Seems like, every direction
you turn, someone you know contracts cancer. Even those that try hard to
live a healthy active life minus fatty foods, cigs, and strong drink
Feb. 11 a Many of us sit around and
think, it must be something common like the wawa supply.
Feb. 11 a Did you ever think: This
study will make you think twice about stepping outside for a breath of
fresh air. A team of scientists from around the world confirmed millions
of viruses rising into the atmosphere, travelling — sometimes for thousands
of miles — and falling back down to the surface
Feb. 11 a Here's that
Feb. 11 a Badges always say, I want
to search your car, truck. Here's
five reasons to say no to such.
Feb. 11 a Our annual online beggin
campaign lasts about 10 days. We're on day 5 this rainy morning.
Feb. 11 a Already several have
stepped up to the plate and donated. Thank you DJ, TP, MK, KS, and CA.
Feb. 11 a With $$$ in tight supply
countywide, we're serious when we say, we can't make it another year without
your support. True our camera, puters, printers are working fine right
now but there's the other expenses that kick us in the pants.

Feb. 10 a From the National Weather
Service: FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNDAY
EVENING A series of waves of low pressure will move through
the area, along a front, this afternoon through Sunday morning, bringing
heavy rainfall. The potential for over 2 inches of rain exists across the
watch area. Excessive rainfall, combined with an already saturated
ground, may lead to flooding along streams, creeks, and in low lying areas.
Feb. 10 a This afternoon is the Night
of Champions over in Glenville. Our team will take the court at 6pm sharp.
Feb. 10 a 101.7Fm and 106.7 FN will
air the match up.
Feb. 10 a For those to far away to
hear the signal, try using the
Feb. 10 a Clayberry school employees
made it very clear with their 85% vote in favor of striking. The 15% no
votes includes those that just refused to say yes or no.
Feb. 10 a Wetzel County school employees
came in with a 86% vote to walkout
Feb. 10 a We talked with a Kanawha
County teacher before the strike vote and that lady felt certain there
would be a massive Yes return.
Feb. 10 a Based on those numbers, we
feel certain, the teacher and school service personnel unions have the
numbers (support) to shut everything down if they want to.
Feb. 10 a From the Eastern panhandle,
W.Va. Teacher of the Year Katlin Thorsell was part of the “Walk-In” at
Washington High School in Jefferson County where she said they saw a lot
of support from the community. Read
Feb. 10 a IF you think the Republicrats
in the Legislature will look out for the rank and file, Senator Robert
Karnes, an Upshur County Republican, told the Charleston Gazette-Mail that
teachers could find other means to pay their dues other than deductions.
That’s why Michelle Liga, President of AFT-Preston, said teachers are leading
the way in the current strife and unrest. Rotten
Feb. 10 a Teachers held walk-ins
in several counties Friday morning. Teachers in Cabell and Wayne counties
voted Thursday night to have a one-day walkout next Friday. Many of those
teachers may end up at the state capitol next Friday. A state capitol rally
of teachers from across the state is scheduled for a week from Saturday,
Feb. 1. More.
Feb. 10 a Some wonder, what the heck
does Superintendent Joe Paxton do all day? This week he may have earned
his keep. As a matter of fact, we saw him just briefly Friday afternoon.
There was a hair out of place. Yelp, it's true. Instead of all neatly combed
ans slicked back, there was a hair hanging down on his forehead..
Feb. 10 a For instance, he dealt
with the tension and questions surrounding a propsed teacher work stoppage.
Feb. 10 a There was an issue of a school
bus not taking athletes to an away ball game. That's a no no and fully
against school policy.
Feb. 10 a The third biggy came Thursday
mid day and according to some of the students, when a Middle School teacher
was stoned out of her head and removed from the class room. The removal
came after a morning of the teacher so stoned, she sat in a chair,
flinching and shaking.
Feb. 10 a Kids reported she had
been acting crazy for a few weeks. Administrators got wind of the problem
and had a monitor in the room prior the melt down
Feb. 10 a How stoned was she? We understand
the brats pulled out their cell phones and recorded her actions.
Feb. 10 a So can the teacher
be fired for such? We think not.
Feb. 10 a If the wayward teach tells
Paxton, I need rehab and counselling, we think the school system will be
required to pay for such medical help and keep her on the payroll.
Feb. 10 a Just a guess on our part.
Feb. 10 a Anyway you look at it, the
last seven days was tough on the Pentagon.
Feb. 10 a How's that for a Saturday
Feb. 9 p On the subject of Clayberry
school employees going out on strike, Superintendent Joe Paxton released
this statement as of 2pm today: I have the utmost respect and admiration
for all Clay County Schools’ Employees. I believe that our employees
have a strong history of being professionals who dedicate their lives to
the education of our students. I support our employees and encourage
our community to express their appreciation by supporting legislation leading
to a wage increase and insurance funding. I am proud to be part of
a school system that promotes Caring, Commitment, and Success for the children
of Clay County. Joe Paxton, Superintendent Clay
Feb. 9 p Sounds good on first blush
but what did he really say?
Feb. 9 a Last year something happened
at Big Otter Elem. Parents got all fired up and came in force to tell the
Sch Bd their concerns and complaints.
Feb. 9 a Based on emails and in person
discussions, sounded like a teacher had "lost it" for a moment and shaken
a kid. The Bd has never mentioned the teachers name during a public meeting
but right after the incident, teacher Joyce Lewis disappeared from the
school. That was five months ago.
Feb. 9 a A Sub Teach has been filling
Feb. 9 a If you take a gander at Monday's
Bb meeting agenda, item #14 is approving the resignation of Lewis from
Big Otter Elem.
Feb. 9 a Putting 2 and 7 together and
coming up with 4, that means, Joyce Lewis has had the best ever vacation.
Feb. 9 a Now we're hearing a new story,
this one deals with a Clay Middle School teacher and an incident from yesterday..
Feb. 9 a Update as we can
Feb. 9 a Stay tuned clickers.
Feb. 8 p We had a chance to talk with
School Super Joe Paxton this afternoon. We asked if he has prepared a statement
on their posture of the upcoming teacher walk out.
Feb. 8 p Paxton said that a statement
is coming and they are preparing a pro active stance.
Feb. 8 p We will attempt to gather
his statement and post online
Feb. 8 p This is our annual buddy have
you got a dime beggin campaign
Feb. 8 p If you can help keep us up
and running for the next 12 months, sure would appreciate your support.
Feb. 8 p The PayPal button on the home
page is up and running. For those still using envelopes and stamps, send
your hard earned bucks to Delta; 2278 Main Street; Clay, WV 25043
Feb. 8 p Thanks in advance.
Feb. 8 a Better enjoy Friday's dry,
50 degree temps. Sat and Sun are going to be wet wet wet.
Feb. 8 a Great big white snowflakes
coming down this morning. 21 degrees in Clayberry
Feb. 8 a In a not so quiet way,
there's a Govt strike, work stoppage, looming.
Feb. 8 a Wed afternoon, upwards of
85 school service personnel and teachers gathered at Clay High for a second
informational meeting. Many questions were asked.
Feb. 8 a One coach asked, if we decide
not to strike in this county, will pickets still be held at the schools.
The quick reply, Guaranteed!
Feb. 8 a Local votes will be held today
and tomorrow with a state-wide meeting of union reps scheduled for Sunday
Feb. 8 a This is serious business that
one way or another, there will be stomped on toes. Company sucks will be
identified and remembered for years.
Feb. 8 a From the outside looking in,
feels like a state-wide or selective strike will be held next week.
Feb. 8 a After teachers have been crapped
on for so long, they have to stand up and make a stand. We think that's
going to happen Monday Feb. 12th
Feb. 8 a West Virginia really doesn't
give a shirt about teachers or education in general. That is proven over
and over in more ways than just pay checks.
Feb. 8 a What we really care about
are our roads getting graded and salted in the Winter months.
Feb. 8 a While school shut downs will
be noticed, if the State Road workers come out in support of the teachers,
especially if we received ice next week, now that would get people's attention.
Feb. 8 a Pay sucks for nearly
all govt workers. The bigger issue this time and at the root of a proposed
strike , is the Republicrat Legislature breaking it off in em with humongo
increases in PEIA rates on top of reduced services and higher co-pays
Feb. 8 a Some county Superintendents
have already issued letters of support for the strikers.
Feb. 8 a 28 years ago, during the last
shutdown, the Clayberry Superintendent came out in support of his personnel.
We hope that happens again in the County of Little.
Feb. 7 a Nicholas wiped out the lady
Panthers last night. It wasn't even close.
Feb. 7 a It is a wet muddy, yucky day
in Clay. Weathercasters are telling us , there's a 50/50 shot at snow coming
our way later this afternoon. In the mix is a Flood Watch for all low lying
Feb. 7 a During the course of a day,
we receive quite a few emails. Everything from event notices to those that
start off with you dirty rotten....
Feb. 7 a This morning , this came:
Mr. Gibson, Why didn't you update on all the Greasers at CCC
with the News there? You were reportedly seen in full Gladiator Gear writing
down Very Important News; and frothing at every word the Corn-Hole Greasers
were speaking. "We"; the toothless of Clay County want too know. WE search
for answers from you the one and only 'Brave-heart' of the land. Lets hope
you didn't get hush money like all the kooks and David Walker's whom are
basically "like a rock but only dumber" which by the way is an Insult to
a rock. Please we the toothless plead with our welfare and food stamps
that you bring in some type of insurrection to the land of nothing; no
not that Goob Mitch Deboard; really someone with some sense of what and
where the money went for the wasted of Clay County. Get on your Steed Mr.
Gibson and Scream "FREEDOM" or actually in your case "FRITOS"! God love
ya; I know WE do; and hopefully you can get some Numbers, Answers, Suits
and Ties, and take their heads my friend! Please throw a rock and get er
done; and please throw that rock real hard.
Feb. 7 a All emails are appreciated.
And by the way, we are subject to bribes, the bigger the better!
Feb. 7 a Monday evening a bunch
of govt agencies met with those underserved after the 2016 Great Wash Out.
Feb. 7 a 6 or more individuals spoke
out on the many less than adequate responses by the folks that came in
here to lend a govt hand.
Feb. 7 a One guy (family) said they're
using a thunder mug (18 months) while still waiting for a porta potty.
Feb. 7 a Another family mentioned they
gave away their tiny home to make ends meet
Feb. 7 a Up front, the suits were on
their best behaviour and once again offered to jump into gear and make
Feb. 7 a For those without a tie, eyes
Feb. 7 a There was mention of the Greater
Clay Long Term Recovery Committee screw ups. The Chair nor volunteer Director
were not present for the meeting.
Feb. 7 a After closing their doors
last Dec., the Greater Clay agency has not met nor been heard from
Feb. 7 a How poor is it in Clayberry?
Just got this notice: Clay Lions Club Bingo has ended until further notice.
Thank you for your support for the past 20+ years.
Feb. 7 a How about some good news
Feb. 7 a We know Spring is just around
the corner because, it's time to sign the curtain climbers up for Little
League baseball and softball. See ADVISORY page now.
Feb. 6 p Forgot to provide the link
info for those wanting to listen
online to tonight's Lady Panther game in Nicholas County.
Feb. 6 p Today is the first day of
our online beggin campaign. Each Feb. we ask you to open your wallets
and send some $$$ this way. Most years, we have a real need to upgrade
one thing or another.
Feb. 6 p This year is different, your
donation will help keep the clayberry site and Communicator up and running.
Feb. 6 p You know things are
sour when an organization as big as the Charleston Gazette files bankruptcy
in an attempt to survive. While we're still coming in around 1900 hits
on the average day, we lost the NAPA homepage advertiser just last month.
In the last 10 months, two other advertisers went belly up.
Feb. 6 p We're going to keep nagging
for the next 10 days. Please send your hard earned bucks to: Delta, 2278
Main Street, Clay W Va 25043 Thanks in advance.
Feb. 6 p This afternoon's
post is a good example of what we do in a timely manner nearly every week
day. Stuff you can't find anywhere else!
Feb. 6 p Zachary Daniels has had law
troubles for several years. Many of his problems are due to a drug addiction.
Feb. 6 p Zak has been in drug rehab
after getting nabbed by the Badges. Recently Daniels got in an altercation
with an employee there. That was followed up by an incident with another
Feb. 6 p During Monday afternoon's
time before the Judge, the rehab folks told the Court, Daniels can come
back to rehab, but for now, he's out of here and back to jail. Zak
did not know that was coming Monday afternoon.
Feb. 6 p While being escorted from
the Courtroom, he bolted for the back door of the Courthouse with newbee
Black Shirt John Holcomb clipping along at a good rate.
Feb. 6 p Daniels was caught later on
Grave Yard Hill behind the old Courthouse.. Zachary Daniels is now in bigger
Feb. 6 p Around the Courthouse, people
are taking up a collection so the Sheriff can have his own set of handcuffs.
Others noted the sweat covered Holcomb after the pursuit.
Feb. 6 p Today was Gary Wyane Moore's
day in Court. Moore was charged with someone in possession of a stolen
Feb. 6 p Few would ever call Defense
Attorney Jeff Davis the brightest bulb in the pack. This morning, Davis
was one of the shining stars. Davis noticed that one of the Prosecutor's
witnesses was not on the official witness list. Such appears to be not
kosher in Court land. Sounded like, such would be grounds to toss a witness
or the entire case. Davis ask for the case to be tossed, acquittal.
Feb. 6 p A riled up Judge
Jack Alsop, during his thoughts on the screw up, "[Prosecutor] is NOT DOING
Feb. 6 p Asst Prosecutor Dan Dotson
was ready to close up his case when Judge Alsop brought to his attention
law 17a-8-9 which deals with a rental vehicle loss and reporting of the
loss. Looking at both Davis and Dotson: I guess no one read it!!!
Since both were sliding down in their chairs like little kids caught by
a teacher, our guess, the Judge was right.
Feb. 6 p Dotson tried to get
the jury to find a guy guilty of a stolen vehicle based on a stolen
Panthfinder left overnight in the guy's driveway and left there by a friend
from out of county.
Feb. 6 p You ever see a vehicle parked
near your house? Maybe an old truck parked on the far edge of your field?
Does that mean you could be charged with a crime?
Feb. 6 p In the end, Dotson could not
prove Moore knew the SUV was stolen. As a matter of fact, the Asst did
not prove much of anything.
Feb. 6 p It took the jury just 26 minutes
to come back with Not Guilty.
Feb. 6 p Based on what we heard, we
think, if the jury had found Moore guilty, we think, Judge Alsop would
have tossed the verdict
Feb. 6 p Big shiny star for Jeff Davis
and his eagle eye. Ditto for Judge Alsop for actually doing before trial
research and knowing the right law and when to apply it.
Feb. 6 p Full details in the next Communicator
Feb. 6 p Now that's what makes this
web site so important for those interested in Clayberry.
Feb. 6 p We throw in the typos at no
Feb. 6 NOON The National Weather
Service in Charleston has issued a Flood Watch
from late tonight through Wednesday afternoon. A large weather system
is expected to move through the region tonight and exit late Wednesday
afternoon and evening. This system has the potential to produce up to 2
inches of rain over the watch area. With the ground begin wet over the
lowlands and snow in the Northern mountains, and temperatures rising into
the 40s, runoff and snowmelt will be efficient flowing into the streams
and rivers. Flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas and roads along
streams, creeks and rivers are possible.
Feb. 6 a NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE:
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON EST TODAY...
Freezing rain or drizzle. Additional ice accumulations of a light
glaze are expected... Until noon EST today.
Feb. 6 a Tonight, 7:30, the CHS Lady
Panthers play Nicholas County in away action.
Feb. 6 a More updates coming.....
Feb. 5 p Charles Eugene Legg,
67, of Clay, see OBITUARY page
Feb. 5 p Senator Mike Romano is up
for reelection this May. The dedicted Demorat got some good press this
morning on MetroNews.
Feb. 5 a Ever hear of a one hour delay
for schools? That happened at 4:22 this morning
Feb. 5 a Shortly thereafter at the
same 4:22 am, a two hour delay was called.
Feb. 5 a We think some sleepy head
pushed the wrong button
Feb. 5 a Throughout the morning, over
the scanner, clear thinking bus drivers called in with, not going
here or there due to icy roads, hollers, valley, side roads.
Feb. 5 a It is slick out there clickers.
Feb. 5 a With this being the first
full week of the new month, there's some public meetings going on
Feb. 5 a Like the Health Board
is suppose to convene at 4pm today in the NH Dyer Health Bldg
Feb. 5 a Like Tuesday at 5:30pm, Clay
Town Council Meets.
Feb. 5 a And something new, for those
still waiting for help from the 2016 Great Wash Out, some fellow has scheduled
a 7pm meeting for tonight over at the Courthouse. Our guess is, govt
reps will be on hand to hear your problems.
Feb. 5 a In the morning, the Gary Moore
trial gets under way at 9am sharp.
Feb. 5 a At 10am Tuesday morning,
the annual Board of Review kicks off. Over the next 3 weeks, here's your
chance to protest high taxes and taxes that belong on something or another.
Contact the County Clerk's office for more
Feb. 5 a The biggy question this week:
Will the teachers, school service personnel, State Road, and other Govt
workers go out on strike? It's been 28 years since the teachers went on
strike. This time, it's as much about outrageous increases in hospitalization
as it pay raises.
Feb. 5 a From the outside looking in....
looks like the Rep Gov is offering a 1% annual pay increase in one hand
and taking over $200 each month for new insurance deductions.
Feb. 5 a Because it's election year,
the interesting part is is, what will leadership do?
Feb. 5 a Up for reelection Dave Mullins
was hired by some voters to run the school system. Will he side with management
or will he stand with school service personnel and support the strike.
Feb. 5 a Dave Pierson showed his colors
during the last strike when he flipped off teachers and roared passed in
his pick em up truck
Feb. 5 a A rift between those two could
create a divide during future Board meeting votes. Pierson a nd Bodkins
on one side and Mullins with Morgy on the other. In that scenario, that
makes the independent thinking Cheryl White, the tie breaker.
Feb. 5 a Our Republicrat Delegate
rep Roger Hanshaw is also up for reelection. His opponent is Demo Dave
Walker who spent his working life as a union member. There's little doubt
which side Walker will take. Hanshaw's wifey is also a teacher. Wonder
how that will go on the home front? In this close race,
and if Hanshaw pee's off teachers and school service personnel in Clay
Gilmer, and Calhoun County, he could be in the deep stuff.
Feb. 5 a So far there has been no official
posture from the Pentagon on how they stand on the strike.
Feb. 4 a Careful out there clickers.
The County is blanketed with ice where ever you step
Feb. 4 a We saw a a nice change
this past week. The Town provided this web site and newspaper notice of
a Boil Water Order. In years past, with the now ex wawa operator making
it a point to NOT send such notices, often such serious events came
and went without the county's only locally owned and operated newspaper
being informed. What a refreshing change.
Feb. 4 a By the way, the BWO was lifted
Feb. 4 a We started the week
off with a slate of candidates seeking public office. Some of the faces
are new to the electorate.
Feb. 4 a County Commission candidate
Mitch DeBoard as well as House of Delegate candidate Dave Walker took advantage
of a free candidate announcement space in The Communicator newspaper. Smart
thinking and we hope all other candidates take the same advantageous opportunity.
Feb. 4 a President Drumpf made
is first State of the Union speech. Sticking to the teleprompter up front,
he didn't sound nearly as dumb as normal. His sentences were still filled
with fibs at every turn.
Feb. 4 a Like, returning to coal, exporting
more energy and more cars being built in this country. All
made up lies and easily checkable.
Feb. 4 a For two weeks we waited with
bated breath waiting for the Republicrat written "memo" that was suppose
to free Drumpf from his Russian connection. The memo did nothing. It was
a bust. Now on to impeachment and the sooner the better.
Feb. 4 a Much fanfare was applied
Thursday when Roane Clay and Calhoun Counties received $125K to perform
an engineering study on what's wrong with Frontier's DSL service. Engineers
will receive the loot to discover what we already know, Frontier ain't
going to do a thing until competition forces them to upgrade their system.
Feb. 4 a Also from this week.... We
received a tele call from a Procious feller who is organizing a flood survivor
meeting set for Monday evening. See EVENTS page.
Feb. 4 a The guy says there are many
in Clayberry still waiting for promised govt services. Something about
"falling thru the cracks".
Feb. 4 a We talked with Mayor Hubbard
about Monday's meeting. The Mayor says, several govt agencies and reps
from elected officials will be on hand to see what's needed.
Feb. 4 a Here it tis Feb., our Beggin

laced but up to date place for happenings going on in Clayberry, we will
be asking for your support. Be warned.

Feb. 3 a French Creek Freddie says
Spring is right around the corrner. We hope his 75% batting average is
correct this year.
Feb. 2 p The Town of Clay Boil Water
Order has been lifted as of 1:42 today
Feb. 2 p Non profit groups carry the
load in Clayberry. Each and every one of em have a hard time keeping their
heads above water. Whether it's finding clothes / food for the needy or
the ones that put out the fires, non profits make the difference here in
Feb. 2 p One of those is non profit
101.7 on the FM dial.
Feb. 2 p A few weeks back their main
transmitter went kaput. To stay on the air, WYAP is using a much smaller
, spare, back up unit. They're on the air but just barely
Feb. 2 p That tranny was sent
to the repair shop. The repair bill is $750.00 including shipping back

an independent voice on the local airwaves, your support would be greatly
appreciated. The need is now.
Feb. 2 p Need Winter clothes? See EVENTS
Feb. 2 a Two Clay High ball games tonight.
You're on your own clickers, the local radio station is not sportscating
tonight. See ADVISORY page for schedule and locations.
Feb. 2 a A small band of folks
have been working to get improved DSL service in a three county region.
Yesterday, $125K grant was awarded for an engineering study.
Feb. 2 a Officially, the notice read:
Clay County Commission (Lead Applicant) $125,000 . This
$125,000 project is to develop a broad band feasibility and business plan
for Calhoun, Clay and Roane counties. This planning project promotes a
regional approach to provide a road map to provide broad band throughout
the three counties, whether it is middle mile, broad band to the home,
fiber optics, wireless or white space.
Feb. 2 a METRO NEWS: 8:02
a.m. Governor Jim Justice had planned a 10:30 a.m. news conference
to discuss education issues — presumably including the pay increase and
the health care situation. The press conference was cancelled without explanation.
Feb. 2 a METRO NEWS 9:23 a.m.
Dressed in red shirts, the teachers have been in the Upper Rotunda and
also in the Governor’s Conference Room. So far, most have expressed greater
dissatisfaction with the shape of the healthcare plan than with the level
of the pay increase. Here's
Feb. 2 a With sabre
rattling of a teacher strike, something local....
Feb. 2 a Up for reelection this May,
Dave Mullins serves as Sch Bd Prez.
Feb. 2 a Before that perch, Mullins
was a bus driver and union rep for School Service Personnel.
On more than one occasion, Dave went to bat for those that he represented.
Feb. 2 a In that capacity, he
did a pretty good , hard to admit but, he did a pretty good job.
Feb. 2 a Now running the school system,
it will be interesting to see which side he sits on if a strike comes our
Feb. 2 a Ditto if teachers strike
and bus drivers continue to work. Question is, will Mullins tell his voting
block, the bus drivers, to cross a picket line?
Feb. 2 a The entire Pentagon
gang complains they have a hard time finding qualified teachers. Better
pay would attract more into the field and make hiring (and test performance)
an easier task.
Feb. 2 a One lady told us, things
are different now compared to when the last strike was called in 1990.
Feb. 2 a Truth is, things are different
today. Things like crappier pay, fewer benefits, more challenging
demands, and all that, things are much worse.
Feb. 2 a There's a certain stinch
hanging over The Greenbrier where all the DC Senatea nd Congressional reps
are holding a Winter get together. It's refreshing to read, hundreds
of protesters are also there to express resistance to the Trump disaster.
Feb. 2 a School are operating on a
two hour delay today

Feb. 1 p From Town of Clay: BOIL
WATER ORDER is in effect for the Town of Clay, Pisgah, Bradley Field and
Hartland areas 1/31/2018 main line leak. This does NOT include
Two Run or Maysel areas, this is from Carr Strret in Clay including town
and back streets and towards Hartland and Pisgah only
Feb. 1 a Teachers have never been considered
professionals in this state. Many think, anybody can be dropped in a
classroom and everything will be fine. Here in Clayberry, the Pentagon
regularly hires untrained, uncertified, unskilled to fill teaching slots.
Feb. 1 a For the most part, those place
keepers haven't a clue on the art of teaching.
Feb. 1 a It's not just County Clay.
The entire state shares that "anybody can teach" attitude. We can prove
that by looking at regional newspaper classifieds. Take a look for yourself
. Teaching jobs are NOT listed under the Professional category.
Feb. 1 a Those unskilled employees
know, they are lucky to have any job and therefore, are much more willing
to walk in lock step with Pentagon across the state. Many would call em,
Feb. 1 a 28 years ago teachers (not
service personnel) went on strike. It was in March when teachers stood
in front of Clayberry schools with signs and let their voices be heard,
we need better pay among other things.
Feb. 1 a In March of 1990, teachers
had the support of the Superintendent, James Dawson.
Feb. 1 a So supportive of making their
lives better, no teacher lost a day of pay. Instead the schedule was changed
around to insure the strike could be held.
Feb. 1 a Our Superintendent Dawson
was called to Charleston where State Ed Czar Hank Marackie told him, you
get those teachers back to work or I will fire you!!!!!!!!!!
Feb. 1 a Dawson replied along the lines
of, Go ahead, I'll have my job back tomorrow.
Feb. 1 a Yes there were a few
company sucks that crossed picket lines but the strike went on and accomplishments
Feb. 1 a One incident back then
is well remembered by teachers. That incident was when David Pierson, now
a school board member, drove passed strikers and flipped them the
bird. Back then, that wittle newspaper over in Clay came out AGAINST teachers
wanting better wages.
Feb. 1 a With wages stagnant and well
behind neighbouring states, yesterday afternoon, organizers met to gain
support of a walk out while the Legislature is in session. Votes
will be collected by Friday afternoon. The norm is, if 70% of the people
(including school service personnel this time around) vote to strike, a
strike will be called.
Feb. 1 a We should know soon
if such happens.
Feb. 1 a Because there are so many
noodle backed sucks in the state and county, we doubt if a strike
will happen in 2018.
Feb. 1 a If a strike is called, we
doubt local administrators will be supportive. As a matter of policy, the
word will go out, if you walk, you will not get paid, you will loose your
insurance and your first born child will have flippers.
Feb. 1 a With Republicrats (at
least DINO's), in control of our Pentagon and School Board, there
is little doubt they will make the mistake of being on the wrong side of
this hot button issue

As a matter of fact, Mullins still ain't sending us Christmas cards!
Jan 24 a For those that think Mullins
is dumber than a box of rocks and can't learn anything, you are wrong.
Jan 24 a The Sch Bd was back at Clay
Elem on Monday, the 22nd. For this year, that front row pew had a nice
sign taped there which read, RESERVED.

Jan 19 a Here's the scoop from the
TV-3 website: A man who lead Roane County deputies on a chase, damaging
one of their cruisers is now in custody. Deputies say that Brad Proctor,
40, was found hiding in his home Thursday night on Ovapa Road in the Ovapa
community of Clay County. Proctor is accused of leading deputies on a chase
last Wednesday. According to deputies a traffic stop was attempted
as Procter pulled out of a gas station in the Roane County community of
Amma without his lights on. Deputies say they ran his tags and the vehicle
came back as stolen, starting the pursuit. During the pursuit deputies
say Proctor rammed a cruiser repeatedly on Big Pigeon Road in Roane County,
with a deputy inside. That deputy was not injured. The chase ended in Clay
County on Ovapa Road, but Proctor was able to elude deputies.
Thursday night West Virginia State Police and members of the U.S. Marshalls
CUFFED Task Force found another stolen truck at Proctor's home on Ovapa
Road. They say he was hiding in the house when investigators tried to question
him about the vehicle.
