Monday Morning Briefing

By Staff | Nov 7, 2016

Silver Knights' Victorious!

Good morning.

Today’s Facebook photo is of Madison West, a senior and key player in Saturday’s championship victory over the Rebels. Sports writer Ed Parsons will have more ink about West in the next edition.

Much like the team photo below, that Facebook photo of West, taken by Shari Smith, captures something special — the smile that comes from a point scored, a job well done.

Make the most of the day and the rest of the week.

Silver Knights’ fans have a lot to be thankful for this week, but some travel ahead Baker for the football playoff game at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Charleston for the volleyball tournament this weekend.

In other sports news, WVU’s football team (7-1) is ranked 11th among the top 25 teams according to the latest AP poll.

Speaking of WVU, Jimbo Fisher is the leading candidate for the head coaching position at LSU, according to Bubba Kapral, executive sports editor. Should Fisher opt to remain at Florida State, WVU’s Dana Holgorsen is reportedly in the next level of candidates.


Paden City Council meets at 7 p.m. tonight. Hopefully, it will be quick meeting, but there are a few items of interest that may spark a little bit of interest. In the unfinished business section of the agenda, there is an item that says “report on implementing a regular 1 to 2 percent increase on a yearly basis for water and sewer. Possible action to be taken.”

Another item of note, council is going to revisit hiring a part-time police officer. Possible action to be taken.

Along with the other items on the agenda of note, let’s hope the meeting’s opening prayer by Pastor Jonathan Mast sets the stage for an active meeting where much is accomplished.

In other news, Middlebourne is gearing up for its annual Christmas parade on Dec. 3. For more information about this “Whobilation” contact Bobbi Sue George at 304-771-6954 or Linda Kile at 304-771-9024.

Speaking of the holidays, there is a Christmas Craft Show between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday at the Sistersville Fire Department.
