The following reports are taken from The Calhoun Chronicle archives:


1910, 100 years ago


Everyone in the area appreciates the work done by M.H. Dent, who has just finished painting the Fink schoolhouse.


The assessment of Godfrey L. Cabot’s belongings in this county has been raised some-thing like $50,000 by the Board of Public Works.


Ira Gherke of Rush Run is very sick with typhoid fever. Dr. Dye is attending him.


Elizabeth Silcott, wife of the late G.W. Silcott, came in and paid the subscription to her daughter’s paper, Mrs. C.B. Holliday, who now resides at Clarksburg. Mrs. Silcott has spent the summer at this place, the guest of her children, Mrs. Hagan Barr and Mrs. J.S. Silcott. She is a very entertaining lady, and we are always more than pleased when she honors us with a call.


John L. Evans, a good citizen of Mt. Zion, was a business caller in our town last Thursday. While here, he sold a good horse to one of the Range Stove agents located in Grantsville.


1960, 50 years ago

United Fuel Gas Co. is replacing two sections of a large gas pipeline in Calhoun and Gilmer counties at a cost of $155,000, according to J.R. Hussey of Charleston, superintendant of transmission lines.


Hussey said the project began this week. Jackson pipeline construction company of Clendenin is the contractor.


The 20-inch diameter line, originally installed in 1916, extends from the Cobb compressor station in Kanawha County to Cedarville in Gilmer County.


Sections to be replaced include 4,000 feet in the Steer Creek area of Calhoun County, and approximately one mile near Cedarville in Gilmer County.


Hussey said replacement was made necessary by deterioration and threatening landslides


 1985, 25 years ago

J. Gilbert Theriault has been named as permanent administrator of Calhoun General Hospital. He will replace James Goodman, who has been serving as interim administrator at the hospital since May 28.


 Theriault, presently assistant administrator at the 95-bed St. Joseph’s Hospital in Buckhannon, will begin his new job in Grantsville on Sept. 9. He will work with Goodman until the end of that week, when Goodman will leave for another assignment.


Both Theriault and Goodman are employees of Sun-Health, Inc., the hospital management company that has been administering Calhoun General since May.
