Recognizing West Virginia's 'budding writers'
The ticking of a clock, the song “Happy Birthday,” but especially he hated being told what to do. And since this was I glanced down to my half-finished blobs of unrealistic light blue waves that made my art look pathetic. I was actually . Ira ...

The director of a statewide student writing contest said she is “tickled” with the work West Virginia’s young people are producing. “What you get is probably students who gravitate toward writing,” Barbara O’Byrne, director of the Central West Virginia Writing Project and the Young Writers Contest, said of the contestants. The West Virginia Young Writers Contest is hosted annually in every West Virginia county and is open to students from grades one through 12. Students are invited to submit an essay. A winner is chosen on the county and state levels. In addition to the Central West Virginia Writing Project, partners in the contest include the state Department of Education, county coordinators, teachers and the University of Charleston, where an awards ceremony and writing workshops were held... Winners receive a small cash prize and recognition in their counties, “which is a big deal” for them, O’Byrne said. O’Byrne said the project helps students see themselves as writers. Essays from this year’s contest winners are printed here. First and second grades winner, Flemington Elementary School, Taylor County.

As city historian Barbara Davis says, "It's Frank Lloyd Wright...
If Chandler were my size, if he were a foot shorter, he’d probably find a way to make it work. Maybe not an athlete—or maybe not a basketball player, anyway—but definitely someone you should know. I point out that he’s been famous since he was a junior in high school. His Nike sweat suit perfectly matches the black, gray, and venom green of his retro Air Jordan 10s. His ensemble is accented by black diamond earrings the size of wasabi peas and a gold chain so thin it’s practically fictional. What sets Chandler apart, though, isn’t his casually flashy clothes or the way light manages to shine through his bushel of a beard. 60 Minutes filmed a segment on Chandler when he was a 6-foot-10 eighth-grader, and you could probably start the clock earlier. He was 6 feet tall when he finished fifth grade. Because of that fame, he not only skipped college—jumping straight to the NBA in 2001—but he also essentially missed out on high school, too. He did not “go pro after his sophomore or junior year,” as Lesley Stahl ridiculously suggested he might during her 60 Minutes report, but he did miss out on the normal, formative experience his friends had.
