Friday Morning Briefing 12-9

By Staff | Dec 9, 2016

Good morning Tyler County.

7 a.m. Depending on where you live, there is a light dusting of snow on the ground and it is a balmy 24 degrees, so make sure the kids are dressed warmly before they get on the school bus. High temperatures today may go as high as the low 30s.

A new library of sorts by Sistersville City Hall has opened. If perhaps you want to read a book to pass the time, check the small box out and pick up whatever’s posted. Maybe you’ll get lucky and pick up a copy of Edgar Allan Poe’s works such as “The Raven” and wonder why that bird was tap, tap, taping at the man’s chamber door in bleak December. Community Resources, Inc partnered with United Way of the Mid Ohio Valley organized, crafted and created these libraries to promote literacy to local communities. The library’s motto is take a book, give a book.

On that note, maybe leave a book like Donald Trump’s “Art of the Deal” — a good read. Obama’s “Dreams From My Father” eh may spark the refrain, “Nevermore.”

Speaking of Sistersville, 12 organizations in Sistersville and the greater Tyler County area have been awarded grant funds totaling $131,757 from the Harry E. and Olive T. Barth Charitable Trust, according to the Community Foundation for the Ohio Valley.

Silver Knights’ basketball teams will be playing at various venues tonight. The girls’ team will play at 6 p.m. at St. Marys while the boys’ team will play at 6 p.m. at Cameron. Good luck.

The Paden City Wildcats’ boys’ basketball team has a home conference game vs. Valley today.

More on these stories next week.
