An unlikely pair of Mountaineers have collaborated on a new book that explores the geologic makeup of the mountain state long, long before there was a West Virginia. Roadside Geology of West Virginia was written by WVU Professor of Geology Joe Lebold and Professor Emeritus of the WVU School of Music, Christopher Wilkinson. They joined us at the top of our show to explain how they and the book came together. Then, William Host and Luke Brugger of Center Branch Church joined us to explain a pair of Christmas Eve services they will be celebrating at the Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center. We concluded our Thursday show with Danny Hamrick, the newly appointed Chairman of the House Education Committee. Hamrick knows well that there can be contentious issues when dealing with state schools and teachers, but he is excited about the new challenge.

Taylor County Delegate Amy Summers has been appointed House Majority Leader – the first time a woman has held that position in the West Virginia Legislature. Summers joined us to talk about her new Republican Party role and strategies for the 2019 Legislative Session. In our second segment, we spoke with State Senator Mike Romano about the medical marijuana bill that was passed in 2017. Marijuana is supposed to become available by prescription in West Virginia on July 1st, but because of issues related to the bill’s content Romano does not believe the date will be met. And Dave Perry, President of the West Virginia Board of Education, joined us in our final segment. Perry and the Board want the legislature to consider a six-point plan they have proposed to address needed updates and improvements to the state’s school aid formula.

Next, we spoke with this year’s West Virginia winner of the Milken Educator Award, Jennifer Reaves. Reaves is a teacher at Mylan Park Elementary School and she said she could not have been more surprised. In the final segment of our show, Major Eric Roberts of the Clarksburg Salvation Army joined us to discuss Angel Tree, holiday food baskets and their need for more volunteers to ring bells and help raise funds for the Red Kettle Campaign.

A small ecological park and ponds that sit just below Robert C. Byrd HS once was used for instruction, nature walks and even fishing. After years of inattention, however, the area needs care. This morning, we spoke with science teacher Kolby Alonso and JROTC instructor Col. Joel Sandy about a campaign to provide the park and ponds with a much-needed makeover. Tina Yoke, Executive Director of the United Way of Harrison County, visited us next, and she provided a progress update for the organization’s annual fundraising campaign. We concluded Monday’s program talking with Scott Cochran and Stephanie Wolverton of Stonewall Resort. The Lewis County resort is wrapping up a “shoes and socks” charitable collection for students at a county elementary school and getting ready to host several nights of “over the top” partying leading up to New Year’s Day.

Kelly Bragg, Energy Development Specialist with West Virginia’s Office of Energy, was our first guest on Thursday, and she offered highlights of her recent presentation to the state legislature’s Joint Committee on Energy. She explained the use and increased availability of alternative fuels in WV. Next, the VP of Fairmont State University’s student government, Tyler Keller, checked in to discuss his plea on behalf of the student body to the school’s Board of Governors. Keller and other student leaders believe the cost of textbooks has become outrageously expensive, and they offered alternative ideas that could dramatically reduce a cost that forces some students to consider leaving college. Our final guest was Caitlin Cottrell, a sophomore at West Virginia Wesleyan College. Cottrell and two other Wesleyan students were recently awarded prestigious Gilman Scholarships, and Cottrell’s award will afford her an opportunity to travel to Jordan in the summer of 2019.

Mountaineer Bunker, as it’s affectionately called, is a new WVU Center for Veteran, Military and Family Programs. The director of the Center, Jerry Wood, has an extensive military background, and he joined us this morning to explain objectives of the center, one of which is helping veterans transition from military life to their all-important student and campus life environment. In our second segment, we chatted with the new Superintendent of Upshur County Schools, Dr. Sara Stankus. To her and the Board of Education’s great delight, the WV School Building Authority awarded the county 2.2 million dollars on Monday to renovate the Hodgesville School. She said among the many benefits of the school improvement will be eliminating the need for Pre-K students to bused to a school in downtown Buckhannon. And lastly, Judy Wilson, President of WV Heritage Crafts, was our studio guest. She offered a history of how the crafts co-op was formed and explained the many events, demonstrations, and classes that are held throughout the year at the old Quiet Dell School.

A plan to consolidate Wilsonburg and Adamston Grade Schools, relocate them to the former Gore Middle School, and move the current occupant, United High School, into the vacated Adamston school was sent back to the drawing board Monday when the state’s School Building Authority declined to fund the project. Harrison County Schools Superintendent Dr. Mark Manchin joined us this morning to explain where the school board might go from here. Then, we learned about an 88-year old Christmas program in Raleigh County that provides bicycles, coats, dolls and other gifts to nearly five-thousand young people in the Beckley area. Pete Torrico, Vice President of Mac’s Toy Fund, joined us to explain the history of the program, and how a huge portion of the community chips in to make it a success. In our final segment, long-time area entertainer Bobby Nicholas visited the studio and talked about his show tonight at the Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center – Bobby Nicholas Soul Christmas. Nicholas has traveled the world , but said he has well-established performance roots in Harrison County and is excited about being back at the Robinson Grand with several local musicians backing him up.
