“GSC is one of the only colleges in West Virginia that is qualified by the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance to offer these nonprofit classes, and many local employers look for such training,“ said Assistant Coordinator of Off-Campus Programming Kathy Gilbert.

Additionally, two scholarships are available to cover most of the costs of enrolling in these courses for residents of Braxton County who are high school graduates. Students are responsible for textbook costs. Persons who have delayed starting their college careers, stay-at-home moms who would now like to start taking college courses, and those who started college but never finished a degree are encouraged to enroll for these classes.

John E. Godwin

John E. Godwin

Age 81, of 113 South Main Street, Burnsville, WV, faded away after a long illness on Sunday, August 11, 2013, at home with his loving wife of 58 years and his family by his side. 

He was born on January 15, 1932, the son of the late John Thomas Godwin and Genevieve (Allen) Godwin.

On March 19, 1955, he married Barbara Godwin.

John has two sons, John Mark Godwin and wife Cynthia of Flatwoods, Andy Thomas Godwin and wife Lisa of Burnsville; and one daughter, Carla Suzette Dettman and husband Scott of Burnsville. John also has five grandchildren, Carrie, Joey, Whitney, Anthony John, and Matthew; and two great-grandchildren, Trenton and Rylee. In addition to his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, he leaves behind five brothers-in-law, seven sisters-in-law, numerous nieces, nephews and two special friends, Donna and Kenny Summers of Burnsville. 

John was a Methodist by faith. He was a graduate of Washington Irving High School with the class of 1950. He then graduated from Glenville State College. John served his country as a member of the United States Army during the Korean Conflict from 1951-1953. 

He coached sports and taught in the Braxton County School System for 30 years. His three favorite sayings were “can’t never did anything until it tried,” “dress for success” and “I did it my way.”

Family was the most important thing in John’s life. John touched many lives through connections with his students and his athletes, or as they called him Mr. G. In 2007, the WV Coaches Association named him retired coach of the year. In 2011, the Burnsville School Gym was dedicated in his honor as the John E. Godwin Gymnasium.

Family will receive friends on Wednesday, August 14, 2013, at the Stockert-Sizemore Funeral Home, 225 Main Street, Flatwoods, WV from 6-9 PM.

On Thursday, August 15, 2013, graveside military rites will be held at Noon at the Little Kanawha Memorial Gardens.

Interment will follow graveside military services.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to one of the following charities: Burnsville Hospice Care, Burnsville Fire Department, or the Burnsville Public Library.

The Stockert-Sizemore Funeral Home of Flatwoods will be caring for the Godwin family.

Legislative Update – by – Delegate Brent Boggs - House Majority Leader - 08.12.13

image

This week, I want to share some information of interest regarding a governmental entity that provides an important service to our counties.

Our fifty-five county courthouses throughout West Virginia are vital to the workings of counties and the citizens that our county governments serve.  Architecturally, they are unique to their respective region of the state; historically, they often represent the history of the counties in which they’re located; and, as a practical matter, they are the repository of records, the location of county officials and personnel; and contain the important workings of county government and the judicial system.

Just like any structure, they require constant maintenance and periodic upgrades to remain safe, secure, and energy efficient to operate.  While a few main courthouses are more conventional office complex buildings, the vast majority have received historic recognition and protected status.  Anytime that designation occurs, the expense involved in electrical, HVA/C and most upgrades and repairs become extremely expensive and often complex.  Most counties also have annex buildings with equally important needs.

To help counties with some of the needed expenses and upgrades, in 2001, the West Virginia Legislature created the Courthouse Facilities Improvement Authority (CFIA) to provide county government with funding assistance to modify existing courthouse facilities or for the construction of new courthouse facilities. County governments may apply for grant funding on an annual basis. The CFIA is a statutory agency as defined in WV Code §29-26-1.  Among the components of the bill, it required the establishment of a state treasury a special revenue account to be known as the “West Virginia courthouse facilities improvement fund”.  The West Virginia courthouse facilities improvement fund may receive any gifts, grants, contributions or other money from any source which is specifically designated for deposit in the fund.

The CFIA Board of Directors consists of 12 voting members and 8 advisory members. The voting board consists of two members from each of the following organizations: West Virginia Sheriffs’ Association, West Virginia Prosecuting Attorneys’ Association, West Virginia County Clerks’ Association, West Virginia Circuit Clerks’ Association, West Virginia County Commissioners’ Association, and West Virginia Assessors’ Association.

The advisory board consists of two members from each of the following organizations: the West Virginia Judicial Association, the West Virginia Magistrates’ Association, and the West Virginia Family Judicial Association. One Senator and one Delegate from the West Virginia Legislature complete the final two positions of the advisory board.  Currently, I represent the House of Delegates as a member of the board, serving since 2009.

If you go online to the CFIA website at: http://www.cfia.wv.gov , you can view numerous documents, including a 2003 CFIA report to the Legislature, detailing the needs at that time at each West Virginia county courthouse.  According to CFIA records, Braxton and Gilmer counties have received a total of over $425,000 in funds for various projects and improvements.  I’m very pleased to see this important assistance flowing to our counties to help with courthouse infrastructure and improvements.

Currently, the CFIA is taking applications for its 11th funding cycle and are due in October.  I will continue to work with Executive Director Melissa Garretson Smith to further the mission and the positive impact of CFIA here in central West Virginia and across our State.

Please send your inquiries to the Capitol Office at:  Building 1, Room 224-M, Charleston, WV 25305.  Or, call the Capitol office at 304.340.3220; Assistant to the Majority Leader, Jennifer McPherson at 304.340.3942 or fax to 304.340.3213.  If you have an interest in any particular bill or issue, please let me know.  For those with Internet access, my e-mail address is: “Brent.Boggs@WVhouse.gov” .

You may also obtain additional legislative information, including the copies of bills, conference reports, daily summaries, interim highlights, and leave me a message on the Legislature’s web site at www.legis.state.wv.us/.  When leaving a message, please remember to include your phone number with your inquiry and any details you can provide. Additional information, including agency links and the state government phone directory, may be found at www.wv.gov. Also, you may follow me on Facebook at “Brent Boggs”, Twitter at “@DelBrentBoggs” , as well as the WV Legislature’s Facebook page at “West Virginia Legislature” or on Twitter at twitter.com/wvlegislature.

Continue to remember our troops - at home and abroad - and keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers.  Until next week – take care.

“GSC is one of the only colleges in West Virginia that is qualified by the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance to offer these nonprofit classes, and many local employers look for such training,“ said Assistant Coordinator of Off-Campus Programming Kathy Gilbert.

Additionally, two scholarships are available to cover most of the costs of enrolling in these courses for residents of Braxton County who are high school graduates. Students are responsible for textbook costs. Persons who have delayed starting their college careers, stay-at-home moms who would now like to start taking college courses, and those who started college but never finished a degree are encouraged to enroll for these classes.
