  The Long Reach Federal Credit Union hosted the official Grand Opening of its Ellenboro branch in a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday. LRFCU Manager Charles Delauder told everyone during the ceremony that Edwin E. Cox was the driving force behind having a location in Ritchie County, because he wanted to share the benefits of the credit union with his friends and neighbors. Cox passed away March 28th and had served on the board of the credit union for decades.

  Because of the work and vision he had in bringing the Long Reach Federal Credit Union to Ellenboro, the building was officially declared “ The Ed Cox Building” in his honor.

   “The Long Reach Federal Credit Union wishes to acknowledge the many years of service of Mr. Edwin E. Cox has provided to the credit union through his service as President and a board member.” Delauder said to those in attendance.

  Press Release - With $220,000 awarded to West Virginia University at Parkersburg by the West Virginia Community and Technical College System, an entrepreneurial technology degree program will be launched.

   The associate of applied science program (AAS) and the certificate of applied science (CAS) will be offered to business owners and individuals looking to start their own business. A concentration has been embedded with the AAS and CAS programs in social media and application development.

   Through the new program, the goal is to develop students who will use technology as an avenue for realizing their entrepreneurial capacities.

   "The innovative curriculum uses project-based learning to enable aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to design and develop their own businesses in a creative atmosphere," said Rhonda Tracy, senior vice president for academic affairs. "Future plans include employing the use of our Downtown Center to serve as the catalyst for entrepreneurship activities."

Truck Runs

Off Road

Near King Knob

By Debbie Frederick

  Emergency responders received a call around 4:00 p.m. yesterday (Thursday) that a large truck had driven off the road near King Knob on Rt. 16. The driver sustained injuries and was transported to Camden-Clark Hospital, but they were not believed to be life-threatening.

  It was an army-type “deuce-and-a-half” large truck often used by oil and gas companies because of their ability to go through rough terrain on the access roads. It is believed the driver lost control of the vehicle and was unable to make a turn between Goff Road and King Knob.

   The truck went over an embankment  and was stopped by trees in its path. Two heavy equipment tow trucks were needed to retrieve it from the woods and tow it away. Traffic was stopped for over 30 minutes while crews worked to pull up the truck.
