Civil War The Summers County Historical Society is collecting Civil War stories of soldiers and their families from the county. What is NOT needed is just the rank, unit served in, or other data verified by official records. What is wanted are the stories; for example, Billy Blane Basham, a Confederate left his unit without permission to return home to his family who were being harassed by a witch. This story, passed down several generations in the family, relates what the witch did to his family because she wanted one of their pigs and Mrs. Basham would not give it to her. A true story? That depends on whether or not you believe in witches, but the story is very convincing! If you know a story, it can be written and mailed or emailed to Ben Vest, 153 Oakwood Est. Scott Depot, WV 25560 or gvestmountain If you prefer to tell your story verbally and let someone else write it down, please call Ben at (304) 546-8075. In addition, you could give your story to any member of the Historical Society. The end result of the collection of stories depends on the number of stories collected. If there are enough, they may be published; if only a few are collected, they simply may be placed in the new local history section of the Summers County Library or presented to the public in some kind of production. Anyone interested in helping with this project should call Ben at the number above. The Ministry Place Master Table The Ministry Place at 221 Temple a vintage 151A2 jeep.

Capito, Manchin Announce Funding for Mars oJ!,Uniyersity Reseamh Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-W-.Va.) and Joe Manchin (D- W.Va.), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced a grant of $444,000 to support Marshall University's heart and vascular diseases research. Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). "West Virginia universities continue to garner attention and support because of their dedicated research," Senator Capito said. "Because West Virginia suffers from higher rates of heart and vascular diseases, this research is particularly meaningful for our state. I'm proud to see this funding support Marshall's efforts, and I appreciate their work to help West Virginians and those across the country." "West Virginia has the highest prevalence of cardiovascular disease in the nation with 14.6% of West Virginians being diagnosed with cardiovascular diseases. To address this, we must ensure that cardiovascular research is well funded so that West Virginians and Americans can reduce their risk of cardiovascular diseases. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue to fight for research funding that helps West Virginians live healthier, fuller lives," Senator Manchin said.
