I have been frustrated in my attempts to find meaningful information about electoral candidates in West Virginia. The Logan Banner has proven to be the best source of such information that I have found in my extensive searches. I greatly appreciate the job that you are doing in providing the…

The worst of the novel coronavirus pandemic is past us, at least in the United States. What began in China and traveled to the West has now moved on to afflict Third World countries. Latin America, India and South Africa are the latest hot spots for the disease.

There is a small green sign at Amherstdale on Buffalo Creek in Logan County that simply reads “Cowan Avenue.” It is a solemn reminder for those few people who actually know that the sign represents the father of one of the Los Angeles Rams’ all-time great football players — Charlie Cowan, wh…

There is a “history” behind everything, be it good, bad, or simply interesting. Unfortunately, too many things of historical significance fade away with time, just like human beings. Future generations therefore, oftentimes cannot relate to people and events that should be made a part of you…

In case you haven’t noticed, West Virginia has an election coming up. People who live for politics tend to hype every election as being the most important in our lifetimes. This one probably isn’t, but that doesn’t diminish its importance.

In one week in March, we jumped from 2020 to 2030. That’s the assessment of West Virginia University President E. Gordon Gee. In some ways, the response to the COVID-19 virus brought the world of 2030 to the world of 2020, Gee said in a joint meeting of the editorial boards of The Herald-Dis…

Sometimes, I like to pilfer through a slew of notes, pictures, books, magazines and things that I’ve piled up either at my home or in my office, some of which I have set aside, and, frankly, just forgot about. Therefore, allow me to partially clear off my desks by passing along to readers a …

My parents were born in 1909 and 1910. As they became adults, sought work and planned marriage, the country entered the Great Depression, which essentially ran from the 1929 stock market crash into the early 1940s.

The recent death of Jean Queen, a fine lady who formerly served as both a teacher and then later as a member of the Logan County Board of Education, got me to thinking about how politics has changed in Logan County. Just in the last few years, things have evolved in dramatic fashion, probabl…

Anyone who tells you that the COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t affected everyone has a problem with reality. Our lives have not just changed; they’ve been upended. Some of these changes will affect us indefinitely; others will fade with time.
