BigFoot   By Dale Pase The big foot hunters came to Blackwater to film a story. I don’t know when it will air, but it will be interesting to see what they found. The last time a group was on the park looking for Bigfoot, I said that I didn’t...

Momma Said for December 17, 2013

Picture this, witches hunched over a boiling vat and the words from Shakespeare’s Macbeth comes to mind, Double, Double, Toil and Trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble. Now picture this, two sisters standing over the kitchen stove, making peanut brittle, mixing all the ingredients. Stir until boiling, then stir some...

This photo is of a well dressed group on the Laneville Log Road.  I am not able to identify any of the people nor do I know the occasion. Photo is from the 1900-1910. Laneville was use to getting some flooding; however, the town was washed away by a few...

A Very Thankful Thanksgiving

A Very Thankful Thanksgiving

Let’s see, where to begin. First, we have to rewind to last year to start this story. Last year was a rough deer season for me as I shot a 12 point with my bow but never found it. I looked for a solid week and into buck season without...

The smell of roasting turkey is an indication of the season. Some smells can trigger memories just as quickly as a picture. The smell of pine brings back memories of past Christmas seasons to people. Oranges and tangerines do that for me because we could not have live pine in...

Mostly True Stories

By Dale Pase Friends My new job, Security at Blackwater Falls State Park, showed me that a lot of people have get-togethers. I decided to have one for all of my friends. I didn't know how to plan the party. Lucky for me, Lois, the lodge Manager, told me that...

Turner’s Tidbits For December 3, 2013

This photo is of Backbone Mountain on US 219 in WV.  It looks like a heavy snowfall that year.  The sign to the right reads Backbone Mt Elevation 3552 Ft. The card is postmarked Parsons, WVA June 10 1936 11 AM.  The writer jokes with the recipient by saying, "We...

Another month has gone into the history books and soon another year will follow. It is hard to believe that 2014 is coming up. It seems just yesterday that the big scare went up about Y2K. What a joke that was. The only other thing I remember about the turn...

Techonology Corner

Thus far, comet Ison has been a bust. Not really, but it hasn't exactly lived up to its super status hype. This Thanksgiving it completed its near collision trip around the sun. According to NASA it or at least remnants of this comet may have survived its perilous brush with...

Turner’s Tidbits for November 19, 2013

This photo is of the Blackwater Coal Company Tipple Davis, WV.  The card is dated 1925. The tipple was used for several years. I can remember my grandfather telling of a tipple that he worked at outside of Davis. I am guessing this is the same tipple. When he worked...

Momma Said for November 19, 2013

“For God and Country”, how long has it been that those words have carried much weight? This country was founded on the premise that the government was to be By the People for the People. Momma Said, “Today is seems the government is By Some People for A Few People.”...

Today’s economy leaves a lot to be desired. I am troubled with the road our country is going down right now. The future does not look very promising, especially for the younger generation. The government seems to be on a course to run the country right into the ground. I...

Dear Editor, Warm wishes to Courtland Acres a year after the wonderful care all of the residents of Pineview received during The Frankenstorm of 2012. As winter approaches, we all have memories of banding together for five days last October. We were safe, warm, comfortable and never afraid. We played...

With Halloween over and the calendar flipped to November one three letter word sums up the weeks ahead, the ‘rut’. Right now is the best time to deer hunt as the bucks go into seek and chase phase of the rut. The bigger, mature bucks are starting to show themselves...

How many of you out there know people who just can’t keep their nose out of other people’s business? It seems to be a way of life for them to have to know everything about everyone. I just don’t get it, when you go through life minding your own business...

He’s Alive and Even Bigger

On Friday, October 25 I had an evening hunt that I’ll never forget and I didn’t even draw my bow back. There are no acorns on the farm I hunt this year and all of the deer are in the fields. It was a no brainer to hunt the shanty...
