The following reports are taken from The Calhoun Chronicle archives:


1909, 100 years ago

Several strangers have been spotted in town this week.


Miss Etta Johnson is expected home from Parkersburg today. Her eyes are healing, though little hope is entertained of her ever being able to see again.


Mrs. Arthur G. Miller was a passenger on the Clarence last Saturday for Parkersburg, where she will visit for a few days.


Bill Deems of Pine Creek is suffering from a gathering in his hand caused by an old bruise.


Sheriff Claude Jarvis arrested Dennis Tucker on a capias last Thursday, and landed him in jail. Tucker was indicted several months ago for carrying a blackjack, and has since evaded the officers.


Professor H.G. Miller made a visit to his home in Roane Co. last week, returning with a dandy nice team of horses, which he will keep here for his own use.



1959, 50 years ago

The Calhoun High School band attended the Region XI band festival at Glenville State College last Saturday.


Seven bands, Calhoun, Sutton, Gassaway, Clay, Spencer, Walton and Widen, competed, and Calhoun came away with a superior rating, the highest possible.


The band will attend the state festival in Clarksburg with hopes of doing the same there.



 1984, 25 years ago

West Virginia wildlife re-sources division has announced that spring gobbler hunters harvested 3,374 bearded turkeys during the 1984 season, a 28 percent increase over the record set last year.


The top ten counties were: Preston, 166; Summers, 155; Randolph, 145; Braxton, 141; Ritchie, 136; Nicholas, 134; Greenbrier, 126; Barbour, 119; Gilmer, 115; and Pocahontas, 114. Legal kills were reported in 50 of the 55 counties. Thirty-four counties had record harvests.
