Well, did you now that blood type is inherited, just like eye color. Certain blood types are more common in certain countries. In China, over 99 percent of the population has Rh+ blood. Different kinds of animals have different kinds of blood types: dogs have four; cats have 11 and cows have about 800. WOW, these could be great answers on Jeopardy.

Although I have owned Siberian Huskies for 12 years, and dogs in general pretty much most of my life, I never really felt the need to take any of them to obedience class…until Scarlet. Earlier this year I decided I wanted to become involved in the show ring, and set out to find the perfect show puppy. I had long admired the dogs from Ravenwood Kennel, decided to get in touch with the owner, Mary Alice. Mary Alice informed me she had one little red/white female available. So I made the 3 hour drive to Mary Alice’s home, and after watching her run and play in the kennel, I decided that she was the one for me.
As many of you are aware, I’ve been involved with high school athletics for most of my adult life. I was first certified as a basketball official back in 1985, and 30 years later I’m still at it. Over the years, I’ve become increasingly frustrated with what I have perceived as people losing sight of what high school sports should be about. Our society has become so obsessed with winningthat we have forgotten what our children are supposed to be learning from their participation in sports: the importance of teamwork, the value of hard work and determination and the ability to overcome adversity. A child makes a mistake in a game, and adults boo him or her. An official makes (what fans perceive to be) a mistake, and the reaction is frequently vulgar and insulting and sometimes even violent. Winning has become the most important goal; teaching our young people too often becomes a distant second.

I have mixed emotions every year as fall rolls around. On the positive side, there’s college football. I’m a lifelong Mountaineer fan, and I try my best to get to one ball game a year in Morgantown. The rest of time I’m glued to the television, jumping, yelling and cheering like I was actually in the stands with the rest of the 65,000 rowdy fans. My wife and daughters also enjoy game day and all of the fun, food and friendship that goes along with it.
Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love my Dad and how very proud I am of all that he has accomplished in his life. Most people know my Dad, Wilson W. “Bud” Wood, as a former history/social studies teacher at John Marshall High School, where he taught for 25 years. However, many people may not know that prior to moving to West Virginia, he worked for Bendix Corporation at Cape Kennedy in Florida. While pretty much everyone from my generation is familiar with Cape Kennedy, younger folks may not know that Cape Kennedy, now known as Cape Canaveral, is the launch site for all of the manned space missions in the U.S., from Saturn to Gemini to Apollo and the space shuttles. Dad began working for Bendix, a multi-national manufacturing and engineering company, in 1965.
Last week, my wife, Linda, and I were two of the fortunate people who were able to attend the mass celebrated by Pope Francis in Washington, D.C. Linda and I were quite excited when we left Wheeling and made our way to our nation’s capital, hoping that we would be close enough to actually see him and feel like we were truly participating in the proceedings.
According to a report released earlier this summer by Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, West Virginia has the highest rate of overdose deaths in the United States—more than double the national average. In 2011 to 2013, there were about 34 drug overdose deaths per 100,000 West Virginia residents in 2011 to 2013. The national average was only 13.4. Even when compared to the second-highest state, New Mexico, which was at 28.2 overdose deaths per 100,000 residents, West Virginia was still way ahead.
Sadly, many nursing home residents and/or their families feel compelled to place video surveillance systems in the resident’s room. This is so because video surveillance can be a powerful deterrent to abuse and neglect; it can often assist in identifying and punishing the perpetrators of these offenses; and, it can be of an immense benefit to residents and their families in civil damage law suits. Just last year in Pennsylvania, hidden video surveillance helped the Commonwealth’s prosecutors convict nursing home employees of crimes of abuse and neglect, and has assisted our firm in recovering reasonable compensation for those affected by this senseless conduct.
Picture this scenario, you just built your dream house on a beautiful piece of property in the country side. Some of your favorite things about the property are the view of the beautiful rolling hills from your deck, the fact that you can allow your children to run free around your property without worrying about their safety, and the peace and quiet you come home to after a long day of work. One day, you notice several men doing work on the property across the street. Soon, several men turn into many large trucks that are kicking up dirt on your property. Next, you are told by your neighbors that an oil and gas company bought the property across the street and will be using it for their operations.
