Boos and applause

August 10, 2013
The Inter-Mountain

- Applause to the Randolph County Humane Society for the massive amount of work and fundraising it performs to help stray animals in the area. The?RCHS pancake breakfast today at Applebee's is just one example of the group's dedication to assisting homeless, abandoned and owner-relinquished animals who have nowhere else to go. If you're hungry, head over to today's pancake breakfast benefit, which is slated for 8 to 10 a.m. and costs just $5.

- Applause to the Randolph County Athletic Hall of Fame for their work recognizing the local athletes and teams that made an impact in their sport. Congratulations to all those being inducted during today's ceremony. Today's ceremony will be at noon at the Gandy Dancer Theatre in Elkins.

- Applause to West Virginia Superintendent of Schools Dr. James Phares for his efforts to visit every school system in the state. Phares recently visited the boards of education in Tucker and Randolph counties. He plans to visit Barbour County on Monday. Phares' visibility is indicative of his willingness to take input from students, teachers, parents and community members from all across the?Mountain State.

- Boo to the two members of the city of Belington's Zoning Board of Appeals committee who did not attend the committee's meeting Thursday night. The issue of the construction of a new cellphone tower may not seem like a big deal, but for those effected it is potentially life-changing.

- Applause to the organizers of of the Augusta Heritage Festival. The event this weekend provides good music, dance and a plethora of crafts.
