Cable and satellite television viewers are familiar with the History Channel show, American Pickers. They have been to West Virginia before, filming part of a show in the Huntington area and picking up some Hatfield and McCoy items from southern counties along the border with Kentucky. This time they are coming to Calhoun County.

“We got some calls from people who have watched the show and they told us that there are many antiques and collectables sitting in barns all over the county, gathering dust and waiting to be discovered,” said the show’s producer, Ronald Silverlight.

“What really convinced us to come to Calhoun County was a message we received from an auctioneer friend of ours, who told us about some of things he has sold at estate auctions there. He said that there is no better selection to be found anywhere in the USA.”

So, if you see a white delivery van with “Antique Archeology” on the side, don’t shoot at it, it’s just Mike and his sidekick Frank, “The Bearded Charmer,” come to give you some money for stuff you have sitting around gathering dust and rust.            APRIL FOOL’S
