Good morning.

Good to be alive.

The video shows a speech at the Sistersville Veterans Day service by Cathy Post, president of the recently chartered American Legion Auxiliary Tyler County Unit 48. Post has been a strong advocate for veterans for many years in Tyler County.

In other news, Sistersville City Council approved the first of two readings for a 1 percent sales tax. See this week’s Tyler Star News to learn more.

Madison West was named Athlete of the Week in this week’s sports section. Photos of West were taken by Shari Smith. Can you dig this volleyball player’s mad skills? See what I did there with “dig” being a volleyball term. Eh. It’s early, maybe too early and this coffee tastes too watered down. How about this one — the sun may rise in the east, but West sets the rest!? That’s pretty good, right?
