Based on facts it can be argued that Williamson and Shriver under-performed in its professional role for the Leading Creek School. The same is true for its lead as the outside expert for the auction barn site, and certainly it is true for its super botch role at Cedar Creek. Do we understand that regardless the firm was rewarded by the State by giving it additional work for core drilling and environmental work for the new Glenville site? The State touts that through the arranged sale of the Cedar Creek property citizens recouped money as a great deal. What the State is withholding is that partial recovery of our money included a trade off to build a new school on a site that would never have been selected under normal conditions. This means that the “recoup” has an undisclosed price attached to it. That price, had the State not blundered, is substitution of a much lower quality site for a new school for our children. Had the State not fouled up the new school would not have been on a dump site, one surrounded by filthy water during flooding, stuck among unsightly surroundings in a commercial zone, and in an area congested with traffic. The State can plaster lipstick on a pig, but when it is said and done Gilmer County’s children are stuck with a pig. Thanks a lot Governor Tomblin, the WV School Building Authority, and the State Board of Education.

Mr. Ramezan, it is no mystery why the GFP site is blocked. People in power in Gil can make a few telephone calls to politicians they control to demand that blockage occurs. They are dedicated to do their utmost to censor what occurs in Gil. The same individuals see to it that the Gazette and other major papers do not cover what goes on here. The good news is that on a daily basis more people in WV hear about the GFP and they rely on it to keep informed. Truth has a strange way of being impossible to contain, particularly in this information age. Keep up the good work GFP. Your community-minded efforts are contributing to making this area a better place to live and to raise children. Freedom and democracy are what it is about.

By Gil Censorship  on  10.27.2014

The OEPA told the State Board not to give it all back because they still had concerns the “local board leadership needed more support in making difficult personnel decisions” and four out of five members on this video don’t want to see the employee seniority list?Don’t want to know who’s teaching in our schools, what they’re certified in and so forth? How are they going to have a clue when it comes to RIFs and Transfers?

That’s about as funny as Simmons saying the board is dysfunctional to RESA who wants to take over county finance! Simmons it’s been your board under your leadership for the past three years.

By Now That's Funny  on  10.27.2014

At the end of the tape, Mr Ramezan asks a legitimate question, and the panel of educators gives the look of DEER in the headlights, AND THEN NEVER ANSWERS THE QUESTION OR EVEN MAKES REFERENCE TO IT!!!

This sort of behavior has to come to a stop and stop now.

ALL of those people have to go. Norma Hurley is the only one giving any true facts, the elite crowd of better dressed than usual had a lot of words and every word was UNTRUE complete BS meant to get over on the citizens those MINION consider stupid.

The trouble makers in Gilmer County need to be forced out by any means necessary or NEVER will there be any type of life here for anybody else.

The local law enforcement agencies that includes the Gilmer County Sheriff and even the state police are TOLD what to do by civilians that ARE NOT ELECTED, but instead have bought power with the dollar. ALL of these people need to go, I don’t give a d*mn who they think they are.

ENOUGH is ENOUGH and that NO ANSWER, ANSWER by William K was about the stupidest thing I have ever seen in my entire life, and it is time to take action.

TAR and FEATHERS is the first thing that comes to my mind as to what the consequence should be for these FOOLERS Of small children and Gilmer County Adults.

By Concerned Citizens of Gilmer County  on  10.28.2014

To GFP readers and Mr. Ramazon:
If in fact,  GFP has been blocked in state schools.  Congratulations!
That PROVES the state educators can’t stand the truth coming out!
There is nothing naughty or of porn content that I have ever seen on your site.

By keep printing the truth  on  10.28.2014

Censors don’t realize that when a student hears that the GFP web site is blocked they beat it to a computer soon as they can to see what the issue is about and they spread the news to their friends to increase attention to the web site. In fact, local censors have unwittingly extended circulation of the GFP throughout WV as an unintended consequence of trying mind control over the masses.

Vaughn Luther Rose

The Gilmer Free Press

Vaughn Luther Rose

passed away at home Tuesday, October 14, 2014.

He was born and raised at Rosedale, WV, and graduated from Normantown High School in 1959.

He went to Ohio to find work and met Carol Costilow at Leavittsburg, OH. They married June 02, 1961. They later moved to Pennsboro, WV, where Vaughn farmed, cut timber, and recycled junk cars.

He enjoyed deer and ‘coon hunting. While there they were blessed to adopt Stacie in 1972.

Vaughn served in the Army 1966 to 1968 at Ft. Jackson, SC; Ft. Bragg, NC; and had medical training at Ft. Sam Houston, San Antonio, TX.

Looking for a warmer climate, they moved to McKenzie, TN, in 1977. After a year of farming and raising feeder pigs there, Vaughn knew he needed a dry climate. They researched locations from Texas to Arizona and settled in Deming in 1979. Vaughn worked on a ranch at Akela until 1984 where he worked cattle roundups, repaired and operated equipment, ran a one-man-sawmill, made adobes, and helped build the owner’s house. He obtained a business license as Rose’s Enterprises and did mechanic work, backhoe work and metal recycling.

The family enjoyed traveling when they could to visit family and friends back east, as well as sight seeing in New Mexico and Arizona. They enjoyed taking family sightseeing when they visited. Several of Carol’s family relocated to Deming.

In 2007 Vaughn was diagnosed with cancer. He continued to work as long as he was able while getting treatment.

Vaughn is survived by Carol and Stacie; brothers, George (Sandra) and Clarence (Dreama) Rose; sisters, Virginia (Edwin) Ulderich, Laura (John) Gribble, Nancy (John) Welch, Mary (Roger) Foutty, Louise (Leary) VanHorn; brothers-in-law, Gary Nichols and Lane Costilow; sisters-in-law, Karen Colley, Mary (Randy) Pulley, Rosalie Bennett, Lucille (Danny)Younger, Kathy Karr, and Genia (Tom) Allison; Aunt Ruth Mullins Zimora; and many cousins, nephews and nieces.

He was preceded in death by his parents Harvey Gordon and Stella Mullins Rose; infant brother, Charles; sisters, Genevra Call and husband Clarence, Emma Nichols, and Nina Conrad and husband Glenn; sister-in-law Emolene Dobbins Rose.

Vaughn was a member of the Church of Christ.

He loved his family, friends, church family as well as people he “adopted” as family, Wendy, Olida, Yadira, Ilda, Maria, and Thomas and their families.

The family wish to thank Rosalie who stayed in the home to help care for Vaughn; nurses Dan, Yvonne and Diane and Carol and Lisa of AmberCare Hospice who were of such comfort the last weeks.

Thank all of you who sent cards, called, visited and prayed with and for us.

Cremation has taken place with Terrazas Funeral Chapel.

A memorial service will be held at Ninth Church of Christ, 500 S. 9th St., on Friday, October 24 , 2014, at 1:00 PM.

Thanks Mr. Ramezan for keeping Gilmer County informed. More must come out about the $200,000 plus telephone system the State spent our money on without getting services we needed. Who was the State official who decided to spend the money, what were we supposed to get for it, what did we actually get, and can someone be held financially accountable for the bad decisions? How much more money will it take to fix the problems and what could have been done to fix our problems at the cheapest cost to the County if up-front options had been considered by the State? Wasted money on the telephone system is one more example of what happens when a school system is taken away from the local level to let the State spend someone else’s money. How about Mr. Devono checking into the telephone concerns and to report his findings back to the community?

By More State's Waste of Gilmer's Money  on  10.13.2014

Who was the vendor, how was the decision made to use that one, who made the decision, what was in the State’s purchase order, and what details were included in the invoice prior to the bill being paid? We hear broad band being mentioned as part of the problem. How does that technology fit in? Why not call in the vendor to respond to a complaint about the service and at the same time have an independent person who is technically qualified to sit in on the session to help get to the bottom of the controversy? When as much money as this is involved why does the State just sit on its hands? Another sweet heart deal that went a muck?

By State's Telephone System Money Waste  on  10.13.2014

Headed RESA 7 over 12 years, state appointed Superintendent the last 3 months and he hasn’t even told the Board of Ed about State BOE & RESA meetings as to a possible take over of county finances statewide?  Isn’t Simmons paid to attend the RESA meeting once a month?  Why hasn’t he told the Board anything about this?

So much for the transparency and getting control given back to local Board of Education blah,blah,blah, from DeVano.  Just trying to pour oil on the waters and quiet public disagreement while he does what he’s told. Just another $130,000 a year puppet.

Maybe before it’s all over the State BOE can ship all the rural students to Charleston interment camps once a year. Then send them home when they finish their education. Save a lot of money that way.

Appears that’s how things are going anyway.  The SBA and for that matter the EDA spend all federal money on the north & south so called growth regions of the state or capitol projects while we took care of ourselves.  Now they want to take over the center and share it around like the families and kids here aren’t important and our taxes don’t count.

By Tomblin & Manchin It's On You  on  10.13.2014

So Charleston finally admits its intention to take over all the counties fiscal control!!!!????
They can’t fix an intervention county in EIGHTEEN years!!!!????
WVBOE has made a total disaster of two building projects!!!!????

By WVBOE proudly wears the Badge of Failure????  on  10.14.2014

While you are trying to figure out how Gil was ripped off on the phone deal…....try to see how we got ripped on the school bus radio purchase.  How many thousand dollars was that?  Didn’t the former state appointed superintendent get one installed in his auto?  Like he did before when he was super last time?  AND where did all the working radios disappear too?

P.S.  Bus drivers have stated radios worked just fine.

By his trunk and friends  on  10.14.2014

Come to think of it, anytime he has been sup in Gilmer he has done the same, changed bus radios. Big purchases, big deals under the table, big benefit and money in pocket. $5000/acre land deal! And these are only what we know. Can OEPA audit the state boe?

By we need a real audit  on  10.14.2014

All that won’t be nothing compared to selling land he bought for $486,000 plus invested a half million every dime Gilmer County money and will sell for $400,000 plus 11 acres in a flood zone. Maybe we can use those trailers at Normantown when it floods.  Probably hold all the kids left.

Normantown: Fall Craft Fair - 11.08.14

The Gilmer Free Press

More Cost-Effective Schools and Public Services Considered for Gilmer

The Gilmer Free Press

West Virginia has been exploring ways to maintain a cost-effective school system in some of the state’s smaller counties, most notably Gilmer. A new administrative structure for these schools will likely save tax payers money and if implemented responsibly, could continue to ensure quality educational services for parents who send their children to public schools in Gilmer. Yet efforts to streamline public services always involve a difficult balancing act: how does one cut costs, without losing sight of people (and sometimes the most vulnerable populations) who rely on these institutions and cannot turn to private alternatives? Considering that the most recent statistics indicate that one in five residents of West Virginia struggle with poverty, any cutbacks that reduce local jobs and services must be carefully weighed against the added hardship that may be caused for those who are the most vulnerable and the negative impact of growing poverty in any community.


Restructuring Looms in Gilmer 

Officials in West Virginia have been exploring the structure of the state’s school system and found that the moment, it appears to benefit the counties with the smallest populations. For instance, it was mentioned that while Gilmer has only 903 students enrolled in local public schools, Kanawha County has 28,000 pupils enrolled in its system. Despite the significant different in size, both Gilmer and Kanawha maintain the same categories of administrative staff. Just like in larger counties, Gilmer employs payroll administrators and bookkeepers. It is now largely out in the open, that the Board of Education is mulling “radical changes” At the center of this change, which is being proposed in part by Professor Thomas Alsbury, who is working in the project as a consultant, is the option of take away management and some administrative responsibilities from the local and county level, and transfer these to a new, overarching body. Ultimately, the eight branches of the Regional Education Service Agencies may end up overseeing bookkeeping and management duties for all counties. Proponents of the plan believe that it will not only save money, but will allow local county officials to concentrate their energies on matters of education and instruction, as opposed to worrying out tasks like bookkeeping and the minutiae of financial management. 

The Gilmer Free Press

Poverty in Gilmer County

Yet the question that remains to be asked is what impact this restructuring may have on employment levels in Gilmer county, especially considering that residents here, on average, earn below the state median. Gilmer county’s median household income stands at only $35,500, while overall in West Virginia the figure is higher than $40,000. Additionally, fully 27% of the local population in Gilmer lives below the poverty line, which is higher than the state average. As such, public sector restructuring, if not implemented carefully, may increase the burden for the most vulnerable populations. While unemployment levels in Gilmer have dropped to 6.2%, this seemingly positive figure does not take into consideration that many of those employed are seasonal workers, while others are balancing one or more part-time positions with few, if any, benefits. 


The Impact of Poverty

Increasing poverty manifests itself in a range of personal and social problems, and smaller counties like Gilmer have fewer social service agencies (such as food banks and counselling services) to manage the fall-out. For instance alcohol abuse (although most certainly not only impacting those living poverty) tends to serve as a vicious circle. Specialists note that those who struggle with alcohol addiction “do not even realize” how much of their personal finances are eaten up by this problem.  Some studies suggest that men, in particular, who live in lower income neighborhoods consume approximately three times as many alcoholic beverages as those men who reside in more affluent areas. Higher poverty towns or areas also see an 86% increase in binge drinking, according to another study. The health problems often associated with higher poverty levels certainly manifest themselves in Gilmer. In this county, obesity rates, as well as binge drinking and alcohol dependence are higher than the state average. In the case of binge drinking, in Gilmer county 15% of adults have engaged in this recently, while overall in West Virginia this proportion is only 9.4%.

While rationalizing how public resources are spent in West Virginia and looking at how services in smaller counties can be delivered in the most effective manner are important goals, government officials must tread carefully, in order to ensure that existing problems are not exacerbated by their decisions.

The ability of the state to operate and manage schools effectively is nonexistent.
The state can intervene all the districts they please.  They are unable to remedy what they claim are problems.  Simply create more issues.
Look what the micromanagement of constructing schools has created.
Location failure.  Wrong population centers chosen.
Two site selection failures. ​ No natural gas available.  Prohibitive site prep costs.  Man made earthen slips.
No bid architects.

By WDIT  on  10.07.2014

Calhoun County Median Household Income $29,282, Clay County $33,165, Doddridge county $31,261, McDowell County $22,972, Mingo County $34,518 per US Census Bureau.  All less than Gilmer.
You report about a college town and report binge drinking as a problem? Do you even know how many from your report are full time Gilmer County residents or are out of state students attending college here?

Would love to see the stats for our “top partying college in the country”. Do you live here Ms Gullickson?  You offer no backup for your numbers.  You say “likely” to save money.  Find a RESA financial audit even under WV State Agency reporting.  The data to support your statements is not there.

You speak of the “minutia” of financial management.  Gilmer County has operated in the black without cuts until the state intervened.  The Governor can’t say that about his own budget, ask the HEPC.

Local county officials are not even permitted on the Edline reporting system and have had no say in any of the education consortium that established current or past curriculum. With no control or input what can they legally do to improve achievement? The resources and data are all under WV BOE rule. Can’t even get test results until a year after the test.  The state has had them all along, what have they done to improve the situation?

There is nothing cost effective about this.  It is all about fluffing the budget of RESA so the WV BOE does not have to cut theirs.  When are they going to report their use of taxpayer dollars?  According to OEPA on site reviews which are only considered an “administrative” audit RESA only reports to the WV BOE.

By Please Name Your Sources  on  10.07.2014

The phrase “minutiae of financial management stuck in my crawl. When the state gets done destroying our schools, the county super will be getting over $60,000 per school. That’s hardly minutia!

CommunityConcern™: CEFP Process, An Example of Good Government?

The Gilmer Free Press

Within recent weeks there were more alarming revelations about ways decisions were made by the State to affect the future of our school system.

•  The County Education Facilities Plan (CEFP) committee was drawn into the controversy.

•  The problem is that there is little public knowledge of the history of the CEFP committee.

•  It is reported that prior to two members leaving the school board there was a CEFP committee that submitted its plan to be rejected by the board.

•  Next, citizens understand that a new committee was formed.

•  That committee recommended that a new school should be built at the auction barn site.

•  Various reasons including allegations of a conflict of interest and high site preparation costs caused that site to be rejected.

•  Then, the committee reconvened to eventually recommend the Cedar Creek site.

•  That decision turned out to be a mistake after an enormous amount of money, said to be close to $750,000, was spent and the State declared that there was not enough money left to build the Cedar Creek school.

•  The CEFP committee met again to give its approval of Ike Morris’ site without a record of serious consideration to any of the rejected sites when it selected the Cedar Creek site.

•  There is a report from a person at the school board’s office to claim that Mr. Gabriel Devono said that he could not locate records to use to determine what had happened with CEFP committee activities including names of participating citizens and even minutes for meetings.

•  What is more disturbing is that there was an allegation that prior to Mr. Devono taking charge some CEFP records were destroyed.

The Gilmer Free Press

The confusion raises the following questions:

        »  How many CEFP committees have we had, how were the individuals selected for each of them, and who were the individuals?

        »  When committee members drooped out or they decided not to participate what were their reasons?

        »  How were replacement members designated at each step, who were those individuals, and were all of them, involved in making remaining decisions?

        »  How many CEFP committee reports are there with recommendations for facilities including where schools should be built, and are all the reports available for public access and review?

        »  What was the precise role of Williams and Shriver with the entire CEFP process from start to finish including advice the firm may have given to CEFP committee members at different stages?

        »  Related to the previous question, did CEFP committee members perform technical work including designating specific site comparison criteria for alternate sites, and did they independently evaluate all technical information for the sites or did they rely on Williams and Shriver as the expert for all the complicated technical work and final recommendations?

        »  Do a complete set of records for all the CEFP committee meetings including attendees, meeting minutes, and voting records of each CEFP committee member exist, and is this material available for public access and review?

        »  Because of the gross mismanagement, to say the least, with selecting and developing school building sites who will be held accountable, and is there any legal way the County’s squandered money can be recovered?
