Senior Senator's service to the people of West Virginia in the United States Congress. Words from Winston Churchill, fittingly summarize the defining nature of Senator Robert C. Byrd's tireless work the on behalf of the State of West Virginia, our Nation, and of course, our federal Constitution Churchill said, "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts" Senator Byrd has seen success. He has never lost an election. But Robert C. Byrd does not measure success by personal standards, but by the public good. He does not seek success, only to serve. And through his service, West Virginians have prospered, America has been strengthened, the Congress has been ennobled, and the Constitution secured. Failure has been rare and momentary, but always used as a catapult to advance the next charge for the cause of the day. It is common to celebrate milestones in the Nation's Capital of Washington, DC, but tenure no matter the length is temporary. What matters, what measures the man is not the number of terms, but the depth of his determination, not the years, but the heights of his horizons, and not one HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS The Harlem Globetrotters will be appearing on Saturday, March 1, 2003 at 7 p.m. at the Coliseum of the Charleston Civic Center.

' : :" .... : By this measure, Robert C. Byrd's record can never be out done. Senator Byrd's work" is built on another unionthe lifelong commitment that he has for a people and a state. Senator Byrd's vision and abilities are unparalleled. His personal life and his public service embrace the same principles: diligent work, constant improvement, unwavering commitment, unswerving honesty, and an overarching sense of history. Senator Byrd has worked as a legislative craftsman, parliamentarian extraordinaire, skillful architect, master builder, visionary, dreamer, and doer. From teacher, scholar, mentor, leader, author, historian, and diplomat, Senator Byrd has borne many mantles through his public service to West Virginians. But the one of which he is most proud, and perhaps cherishes the most, is that of being a West Virginian. He has been a mentor to me, a pillar of strength for West Virginia, and a voice of reason for the Nation. After five decades of service in Congress, his work is not yet done. The West Virginian of the Past Century is positioned to usher us into a new era. And, as before he is leading the way. BOARD OF EDUCATION REGULAR MEETING . JANUARY 29th. 1O:3O a. 1. Roll Call t: 2.

Thompson was acquitted in the second trial. There is much history connected with the tunnels, Hilldale, Lowell and Talcott and complete books could be written about each. The Hinton Daily News, exact date unknown but sometime in 1931 or 1932 printed an article from the "Areopagus," Greek meaning'at the top,' the official Talcott High School publication titled "HOW TALCOTT GOT ITS NAME" that follows: "In 1870 Captain Talcott came to our little town. He came here from South America as a Civil Engineer, a fact which explains his bearing the title Captain. It was a custom at that time for civil engineers to bear this title. "At the time of the construction. of the Great Bend Tunnel there was no town where Talcott is now located. A post office was located on the opposite side of the river but was called Rolynsburg, probably named for C. K. Rollyson, who was a prominent citizen of that community. "Captain Talcott was the man who introduced cigarette smoking to this section of the country. The people could be seen sitting around wth bewildered looks on their faces, gazJr a't'ihe" C'aain a'she nonchalantly "roliecl his owh." Thi may seen rather strange, hut imagine ourselves in their places. They had always been accustomed to smoking their tobacco in pipes and when Mr. Talcott began smoking his tobacco in little white papers, they were naturally very curious. "Mr. TalcoSt was here during the entire construction of the Great Bend Tunnel and because he was very prominent and well liked, our little town was named for him."
