Sullivan I. Stump, farmer and hotel man of Normantown, was in town the first of the week.


Fred Gainer, a popular young Democrat of White Pine, stopped over in Glenville for a night on his way home from Gilmer Station.


L.E. Ayers, representing Fred A. Lang Marble and Granite works of Parkersburg, was in town last Thursday.


Earl Shaffer, a popular young employee of Cabot’s Black Works, was a visitor in town on Tuesday.


 C.A. Jarvis has been severely indisposed for several days with a heavy cold.


Noah Poling of Russett was a caller at this office on Tuesday.


G.W. Hathaway of Pine Creek was here on a business mission on Tuesday.


R.F. Kidd of Glenville, G.F. Cunningham and Amos Kenney of Spencer were among the out-of-town attorneys attending court here this week.


Wednesday’s time in court was taken up with the trial of Wes Richards, who has been under indictment for several terms past, charged with breaking into a granary and stealing corn from G.W. Dye of near Freed. It will be remembered that this case was tried at the August term of court with the result that the jury disagreed. On Wednesday the jury returned a verdict of guilty and Richards was sentenced to 30 days work on the roads.


 1964, 50 years ago

There were 81 deer killed in Calhoun County in the two- week deer season that ended Saturday.


Conservation officer W.G. Gainer had an additional 11 deer checked in this county that had been killed in neighboring counties.


1989, 25 years ago

On Thursday, Dec. 14, the Calhoun County High School choir traveled to Huntington to tape a Christmas video for WOWK-TV, Channel 13.


Sixteen choirs were selected from the tri-state area to film a concert that will be presented on Christmas Day, beginning at 7 a.m. The CCHS choir’s portion should be aired between 11:30 and 12:30.


Selections to be presented are “Joy To The World,” “We Three Kings,” “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” featuring soloist Becky Badgett, “Hallelujah, Hallelujah!,” and “Christmas Eve In My Hometown.”


The choir expressed thanks to everyone who helped purchase new robes last year. According to director Charlie Miller, “The robes enabled the choir to make a beautiful picture as you will see on television. Also, you can be very proud of the extremely fine young people who represented you. You have the best kids in the world right here in Calhoun County.”
