Ethyn Eric Miller, a freshman at Glenville State College, was killed in an automobile accident on Thursday morning.

The crash occurred on WV Hwy 5 West between Glenville and Grantsville near the Gilmer/Calhoun County line.

Miller, 19, was a May 2016 graduate of Calhoun County High School and was attending GSC as a commuter student. He resided in Grantsville.

“Betsy and I were deeply saddened to learn of the tragic auto accident that claimed one of our students this morning. The Glenville State College campus community joins our Calhoun County neighbors in mourning with Ethyn’s family today,” said GSC President Dr. Peter Barr.

Members of GSC’s Student Government Association are planning a memorial ceremony at an upcoming date. Grief counseling is available to students, faculty, and staff through Tim Underwood, GSC’s on-campus counselor.

The Gilmer County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the accident.

Ten-Year-Old Boy Dead Following Accidental Shooting In Gilmer County

The Free Press WV

A ten-year-old boy is dead following an accidental shooting Wednesday morning in a small Gilmer County community.

Gilmer County Sheriff Larry D. Gerwig confirmed that two children were playing with a gun at a home in Troy, West Virginia.

The gun discharged shortly before 9 am, resulting in the child’s death.

Sheriff Gerwig was on scene earlier Wednesday morning. He said the accident was not hunting-related.

He called the shooting accidental, but still had deputies on scene as of 12:45 p.m.

The identities of both children, who are juveniles, have not been released.

►  Governor and First Lady Invite West Virginians to Submit Photos for Military, First Responder Recognition Trees

Governor Earl Ray Tomblin and First Lady Joanne Jaeger Tomblin today invite all West Virginians to honor the state’s military men and women and first responders by submitting photos to be showcased on the two recognition trees located in the Governor’s Reception Room during the upcoming holiday season.

“The recognition trees are an important part of our family’s holiday celebration, and Joanne and I are excited to continue this tradition of honoring heroic West Virginians who selflessly serve our communities and our country every day,” Governor Tomblin said. “I am thankful for our military men and women and first responders across our state who put their lives at risk to keep us safe and protect our freedoms at home and abroad. We hope West Virginians will join us in honoring those who have dedicated their lives to protecting us.”

“This time of year, it is especially important that we show our enduring gratitude to our military and first responders, and their loved ones, for continually contributing to the health, well-being and safety of our state and nation,” First Lady Tomblin said.  “The Governor and I hope these recognition trees serve as a way to honor these West Virginians throughout the holiday season and beyond.”

Those wishing to participate are asked to submit photos of their loved ones or friends who have served or are currently serving in the military or as a first responder. The recognition trees will be displayed in the Governor’s Reception Room at the State Capitol Complex during the upcoming holiday season.

Please submit photo copies. Submitted photos will not be returned. The military recognition form and tag can be downloaded here. The first responder recognition form and tag can be downloaded here .

All photos, along with the submission form and tag, must be received by Wednesday, November 30, and should be emailed to or mailed to:

►  Jim Justice: Expect to See Improvements in 10 Months

Democratic Governor-elect Jim Justice says West Virginians can expect to see some noticeable enhancements to the state’s sluggish economy in his first 10 months in office.

The billionaire businessman and owner of The Greenbrier resort defeated Republican Bill Cole in Tuesday’s election.

Justice said Thursday he doesn’t have “a magic wand” for running the state. He tries to run his business dealings on a 10-month schedule, and he says residents should expect by late 2017 to see “real live significant improvements.“

Justice says state revenues need to grow significantly, and he hopes to accomplish that across several economic sectors, including agriculture, tourism and the energy industry.

First, Justice needs to get a transition team in place. He’s putting that together with consultation from ex-state Democratic Party chairman Larry Puccio.


►  GOP Leaders to Justice: Let Us Help You

Republicans who will hold a rare majority of West Virginia’s six statewide offices are already banding together to try to influence yet another Democratic governor and a GOP-controlled Legislature.

Attorney General Patrick Morrisey was the lone Republican on the six-member Board of Public Works after he was elected in 2012. That number swelled to four with GOP wins in races for secretary of state, auditor and agriculture commissioner.

All four attended a news conference at the Capitol on Wednesday to put out an early plea to Governor-elect Jim Justice to let them help him fix West Virginia’s many problems. The Board of Public Works meets up to four times a year, and Morrisey said he’d like that to happen more frequently.

“I think that there’s a lot more that we can do if we tap into the great expertise that exists within these constitutional offices,“ he said. “This is a chance to work together. We have to do everything in our power to identify fraud, waste and abuse in government. I think there’s a lot more there.“

JB McCuskey is the first Republican elected as West Virginia’s auditor since 1928. Kent Leonhardt is the first GOP-elected ag commissioner since 1988. Mac Warner ousted two-term incumbent Natalie Tennant for secretary of state Tuesday night.

Republicans also maintained their majorities in the Legislature.

Besides Justice, the only other Democrat in statewide office next year will be treasurer John Perdue, who won his sixth term.

Justice, the billionaire owner of the Greenbrier resort, will inherit as governor the challenge of addressing job losses, especially in the coal industry, and ongoing state budget shortfalls.

Morrisey said the GOP leaders have not heard from Justice since his election and they looked forward to speaking with him.

A former Republican, Justice has touted himself as a political outsider with outside-the-box ideas to create jobs without big cuts or tax hikes. But he’s offered few specifics so far and didn’t immediately return a telephone message from The Associated Press on Wednesday.

He said in his victory speech Tuesday night at the Greenbrier that “we cannot possibly cut our way out of this mess, and you can’t possibly tax our people more than they have today. We have got to grow our way out of this mess.“

He promised only to surround himself with smart people to tackle the most important issues. Comparing it to figuring out how to solve a jigsaw puzzle, he said, “if there’s anything that I would tell you that I would brag about, I’m the best there is at figuring out how to put them together and make it work.“

Some of those puzzle pieces will certainly include finding jobs and addressing the state’s budget problems.

West Virginia’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of 5.8 percent in September was the fifth highest in the country. Tax collections for the first three months of the state’s fiscal year were $87.4 million below estimates.

Earlier this year, a sharply divided debate over higher taxes to remedy the budget woes spilled over into a special session that cost the state about $600,000. Eventually, higher taxes were passed on cigarettes and other tobacco products.

One issue on which he agreed with Justice: “We don’t need higher taxes in the state of West Virginia,“ Morrisey said.

In the state Legislature, Republicans picked up four seats in the Senate and now hold a 22-12 advantage, according to unofficial results.

Democratic incumbents who were unseated included Senator Jack Yost of Brooke County and Senator Bob Williams of Taylor County, while GOP incumbent Chris Walters of Putnam County lost.

The seat vacated by Democratic Senator Herb Snyder of Jefferson County went to Republican Patricia Rucker over Democratic Del. Stephen Skinner.

Republicans also were elected to seats vacated when Senate President Bill Cole, R-Mercer, and Senate Minority Leader Jeff Kessler, D-Marshall, ran for governor, and when Senator Bill Laird, D-Fayette, didn’t seek re-election.

In the 100-member House of Delegates, Republicans entered election night with a 64-36 majority and didn’t appear to lose more than one seat, although a few races were still too close to call Wednesday, according to unofficial results.


►  WV Names Acting Labor Commissioner

A longtime director in West Virginia’s Division of Labor has been named its acting commissioner.

Mitch Woodrum’s appointment follows the retirement of former Commissioner John Junkins.

The division is part of the Department of Commerce. It oversees licensing and inspecting of businesses operating in West Virginia and enforces labor laws and workplace safety regulations.

A 24-year employee of the division, in 2002 Woodrum was named director of the manufactured housing program. He was appointed director of licensing in 2007 and has been as deputy commissioner since 2014.


►  Voter Turnout Up for WV General Election

Unofficial numbers from the secretary of state’s office show voter turnout in West Virginia was higher than the previous general election but didn’t eclipse the 2008 race.

Figures released Wednesday show 728,248 voters, or 57.2 percent, participated in Tuesday’s election. That’s up from about 55 percent in the 2012 general election and down from about 60.8 percent in 2008.

The secretary of state’s office says the figures will become official after canvassing is complete.

Lewis County had the highest turnout rate at just under 69 percent, followed by Preston County at 68.7 percent and Hardy County at 66.2 percent.

McDowell County had the lowest turnout at 36 percent.


►  11 counties pass Sunday hunting measure

Officials say voters in 11 West Virginia counties have passed ballot initiatives to allow hunting on Sunday on private property.

The Kanawha County Commission says in a news release that unofficial totals show the measure passed there by nearly 23,000 votes. The statement says Sunday hunting will go into effect after the County Commission certifies the election results, which will take at least week.

Ten other counties across the state also passed the measure: Barbour, Berkeley, Harrison, Marion, Mercer, Monongalia, Pleasants, Preston, Ritchie and Wood. It boosts the number of counties that allow hunting on Sundays to 33 out of 55.

Hunting is restricted to private property and requires the landowner’s consent.


►  School Bus Full of Children Accidentally Driven Into Ditch in Harrison County

A school bus full of children was accidentally driven into a ditch on Wilsonburg Road around 2:20 p.m. Wednesday, in Harrison County.

According to the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department, the bus driver got too close to the edge of the road, which pulled the bus into a ditch.

The children were able to get off the bus from the rear exit unharmed, according to the Harrison County Department of Transportation.

The children were able to return to Wilsonburg Elementary, which wasn’t far from the scene of the accident.

BREAKING NEWS: Multiple Deaths Reported from Shooting Rampage at UCC

The Gilmer Free Press

ROSEBURG, OR — A shooter described as a 20-year-old man opened fire on a rural community college campus in Oregon on Thursday morning, killing multiple people and injuring even more.

Ellen F. Rosenblum, the Oregon attorney general, said her office believed that 13 people were killed in the shooting and another 20 people were injured.

“We are just heartbroken here in Oregon that an act of this magnitude has occurred in our state,” Rosenblum said in an interview on MSNBC. She said the figures were from the Oregon Department of Justice’s Criminal Justice division. She cautioned that the situation was still developing, and other officials confirmed few details.

The lone gunman was killed following an exchange of fire with police, said Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin during a news conference Thursday afternoon.

Hanlin said he could not confirm accounts from other officials regarding the number of people who were killed and injured. “We have confirmed that there are confirmed injuries and there are confirmed fatalities,” he said. “At this point, it’s a very active scene.”

No officers were believed to be injured, he added.

He said it was too soon to know if anyone else was involved in the shooting.

Between 20 and 25 people may have been injured and as many as 15 people may have been killed, according to Mike Lane, assistant chief of the fire department in Roseburg.

The scene was chaotic at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. Ambulances ferried victims to local hospitals, and students reported on social media that they had been trapped inside classrooms.

The shooting was first reported before 10:40 a.m. local time, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. Students and faculty were evacuated from campus to the county’s fairgrounds, the sheriff’s office said.

Jasmyne Davis, 19, was in class when the gunfire began. She said she heard one shot, followed by a 30-second pause, before she heard an argument and eight more gunshots from the classroom next door.

Two students ran out the door of her classroom, but a female student who tried to run out was shot in the right arm, Davis said. “Close the door!” the student yelled as she fell back into the classroom.

“I’ve lived in Douglas County my whole life and I never thought I’d see anything like this,” said Danny Medak, 20, a basketball player at Umpqua. He said he heard a loud noise, a pause and then a round of gunshots..

After being released, they boarded a bus for the 13-minute drive to the Douglas County Fairgrounds, where Red Cross volunteers handed out food and water.

Kenneth Ungerman, 25, a Navy veteran and student at the college, was just outside of Snyder Hall when the shooting started. Ungerman said he and a National Guard recruiter heard the pop of gunshots. “We’re both veterans. We know what a gunshot sounds like,” Ungerman said.

He added that the shooter was walking towards Snyder hall on the left side of the building. “It looked like a male, I saw him with a handgun. He was shooting outside at the windows of Snyder Hall,” Ungerman recounted. According to Ungerman, the man was wearing a dark shirt and jeans.

As 15 to 20 shots rang out, students began running out of the right side of the hall yelling: “There’s a shooter! Run, run! Get out of there!”

“We got underneath my jeep rolled on top, and took off,” Ungerman said. They stopped at the entrance to the campus to stop traffic.

The News-Review newspaper in Douglas County quoted a student, Kortney Moore, saying the shooter had asked people their religion before opening fire. Moore could not be immediately reached for comment.

Federal authorities joined officials from Oregon in swarming the rural community college, located about three hours south of Portland. Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms had arrived in the morning and additional agents were also being dispatched. The FBI field office in Portland also said it was sending agents to the scene.

Students were told to stay in locked-down classes after the gunfire. Ryan Rundell, 18, said he was told to stay for about two hours. Students were allowed to leave after being told the gunman was dead.

During a series of news conferences Thursday afternoon, officials cautioned that it was still relatively early and confirmed few details.

“These scenes are very dynamic and they change,” said Richard Evans Jr., superintendent of the Oregon State Police. “Our no. 1 priority is making sure that all victims are safe.”

Umpqua, one of 17 community colleges in Oregon, has about 2,000 students and about 200 full- and part-time faculty members. Federal data suggest Umpqua is a quiet campus, with the only crimes reported there in recent years being an occasional burglary and, in 2013, an aggravated assault.

The rampage was the latest in a series of mass shootings that have produced national revulsion, even as they have left Republicans and Democrats divided over whether the violence should lead to stricter gun laws. The campus shootings on Thursday came about three months after the nine people were gunned down at a historic African American church in Charleston, S.C.

School shootings have figured prominently in this series of tragedies, including the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School in Colorado, the 2007 Virginia Tech shootings, and the deaths of 20 children in 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.


==============================


Police in Oregon are responding to reports of a shooter on a rural community college campus Thursday, authorities said.

A fire official from one of the agencies responding to the reported shooting said that an initial account from the scene indicated a very serious incident. The assistant chief of the Roseburg, Ore., Fire Department said that a fire official reported over a dispatch radio that between 20 and 25 people were injured and as many as 15 people were killed, though he cautioned that the numbers were not confirmed yet.

“As you can imagine, it was chaos. that’s what he said on the radio,” Mike Lane, assistant chief of the fire department in nearby Roseburg, said in a telephone interview with The Washington Post on Thursday.

Reports on social media suggested a serious incident at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon.
