Sunday Morning Briefing

By Staff | Nov 13, 2016

Charlene Galluzzo recently received the WVSSAC Volleyball Official of the Year award. Congrats.

Good morning.

It’s a cold one this morning, frost here and there, with temperatures in the upper 20s. Later, temps will be in the mid 50s, so it should promise to be a wonderful fall day.

This serene video was recorded recently by the bridge leading to Lazears Chapel a few miles outside of Middlebourne one of the most scenic locations along W.Va. 18. Sunday school starts at 10 a.m. with 11 a.m. worship services by Pastor Chuck Sapp. If you look closely at the video, you can see leaves falling around the creek. God’s grace.

Per sports, the Mountaineers beat Texas 24-20 on Saturday in that faraway state. The win moves WVU closer to its goal of its first Big 12 championship.

Locally, another thing to come away from the Silver Knights’ volleyball team’s trip to Charleston for the playoffs was recognition of a familiar face in Tyler County sports. Charlene Galluzzo received the WVSSAC Volleyball Official of the Year award. During Galluzzo’s long career in Tyler County, she has coached volleyball, softball, girls basketball and track at the high schools. After more than 30 years of teaching and coaching, Galluzzo retired earlier this year. She has always treated this newspaper, her students, faculty and staff with the utmost respect a class act. Congrats on the award.

A bit more ink on this story will appear in next week’s paper.

Area law enforcement are giving Santa Claus a helping hand through the “Shop with a Cop” program this holiday season. A few children from economically disadvantaged homes will be provided $250 to spend on gifts for themselves and others. Checks, cash donations and Walmart gift cards are accepted. The more money that is raised, the more kids that benefit from this program. Supporting this program is the right thing to do. For more information, contact Corporal Mitch Corley at the Tyler County Sheriff’s Department at (304) 758-4229 or Sistersville police Chief Rob Haught at (304) 652-1570.
