Beer Cave Expeditionary Explorers:
It's about to happen. Beer Caves are in readiness all over Columbia and at least at one place in the county. Beer trucks are poised to mobilize, we understand. At some places they are saying as early as today. We're trying to be the first to reliably report the first one but need your help. Where will the first opening occur? In Columbia? or is Knifley ahead. For a sneak peak at the official ABC website, see: Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Licenses Look Up Portal

A Mom's favorite snapshot of her son and daughter


2016-06-27 - West VA .
Paula Ball writes of her late son, Seth, "this is one of my favorite photos, taken while Sarah was getting ready for her Junior Prom. Every time she bent down to try and put on her shoe, her prom dress unsnapped at the neck. Her big brother Seth, bent down and put her shoes on for her. My very good friend Lisa, my personal photographer, snapped the photo. It was awesome because it wasn't staged." Paula's grief now is in remembering Seth's words to Sarah as he put on her dressy shoes, "we will do this again next year," thinking ahead to Sarah's Senior prom this May. Tragically, Seth didn't live to the next one. Paula and Sarah share these moments and his story in hopes of helping other families struggling with drug addiction.

Paula and Sarah had this joyous moment with Seth


2016-06-27 - West VA - Photo from Sarah Ball.
Paula Ball, center, and her daughter Sarah at left, would give anything to have Seth alive and well again. His life was cut short by drug addiction and they share his story in hopes of helping other families dealing with the same problem. Seth Aaron Eaton's story was posted a few days ago but this photo was delayed because they lost power due to the flooding in West Virginia, not far from where they live. Paula said their road was flooded for a short time but they didn't get the worst of it. Other than no electricity for 24 hours and lots of downed trees, they made it alright. To read Seth's story, click 'read more' below. Paula asks for prayers for her family as they continue to try and work through their grief.
