Beth Ryan, who has been the director of communications since February 2013, will be leaving the Attorney General's office effective May 29 to be a full time mother to her two sons, age 2 and 4. "Beth has been an impactful mem- ber of our team and a dedicated public servant to the people of West Virginia," Attorney General Mor- risey said. "I am grateful for her ex- traordinary efforts and wish her all the best as she transitions into a new and exciting part of her life. Beth's sons are fortunate to have such a wonderful mother, and they will be truly blessed to have her undivided attention at such an important time of their lives." During her tenure with Attorney General Morrisey, Ryan has been part of a team that has brought sub- stantial change to the Office. These changes include a new outside counsel competitive bidding policy that has saved the state millions of dollars as well as a total upgrade of the Office's electronic infrastrue- tare so that the office may be man- aged as a modem law firm. She has also helped to institute a 55-county consumer protection education and outreach strategy that has provided much needed support to those West Virginians most vulnerable to seam artists and identity theft predators. Ryan said she is appreciative for the experiences she had with the Office and opportunity she now has with her family. "My husband and I have long dreamed about a time when I could stay home with our children on a full-time basis. With our sons getting closer to school age, we thought it would be best to make the change now in order to spend as much time as possible with the boys. I applaud Attorney General Morrisey for all of his efforts to improve the State of West V'trginia and the Office of the Attorney General. I thank him for supporting me wholeheartedly in this decision and for providing me with this opporttmity." Attorney General Morrisey also announced that Jared Hunt will be joining the team June 5 as his press secretary. Hunt, a native of Jack- son County and a graduate of West Virginia University, comes to the Attorney General's Office from the Charleston Daily Mail where he cur- rently serves as the paper's business editor. Prior to his current duties, Hunt served as the capitol reporter at the Daily Mail and was a reporter for Jackson Newspapers. "Jared will bring substantial news- room experience, a tireless work ethic and strong professional integri- ty to his role on our team," Attorney General Morrisey said. "He will be a great asset to our communications staff and to the State as we continue our work to make West Virginia a great place to live." Hunt will join current communi- cations and outreach staff members Carrie Bowe and Jordan Nuzum.

The city asserted in the suit that its clear intention in putting the excess levy on the special election ballot was to continue the levy currently on the books without interruption, and that voters understood that intention when they approved the special levy by a 91-32 margin. The excess levy currently on the books expires this summer at the conclusion of FY 2014-15, and the correct dates for the levy's five-year run are FY 2015-16 through 2019- Airport 20. The dates on the ballot and other documents designated the lifespan of the excess levy to be FY 2016-17 through 2020-21. Christopher J. Prezioso, an attor- ney with Dinsmore & Shohl, LLP, representing the city in the matter, stated to the judge, that with the ex- ception Of the dates cited, "all the numbers in the ballot are correct." Vickers said he was ready to sign the order with no further ado. "This will make sure the excess levy is continuous and provides necessary funding for the city," sai d Mayor John Manchester after the heating. continued from Front Page Rich Ford to represent them in the case, but also stated, "State law re- quires us to pay him what is owed. If we have done that incorrectly, we will make it right." All this leaves Snyder running an airport without a CFO, a mainte- nance and operations manager, and a security officer. But, he remains optimistic. He said he expects to separate the maintenance and op- erations manager positions into two jobs and post the jobs internally be- fore putting them out to bid publicly. He said he will be looking to hire a new security officer as well. As for the CFO, he's waiting for the audit results to come back from the state. Meanwhile, he's overseeing the rebuilding of the airport's website, reviewing the airport's land use with the Federal Aviation Administra- tion, and looking to increase fuel sales, the airport's bread and but- ter, by attracting jets and smaller aircraft to the Greenbrier Valley. He hopes to achieve this by including an interactive calendar of events to the revamped website in an effort to attract regional flyers to the area by showing them the variety of activi- ties and attractions in the area. Snyder is also looking to use the airport as an educational center, citing the Department of Defense STARBASE program, which teach- es elementary students about the sci- ence of aeronautics through hands- on learning, as a program he'd like to bring to the Greenbrier Valley Airport. "The next Homer Hickam could be sitting in a classroom right here in Greenbrier County," said Snyder. Snyder has already used his new manager title to establish tl3. e air- port as a emergency services heli- copter hub. This month, HealthNet Aeromedical Services will have a full-time hangar at the airport, dra- matically decreasing the time that it Will take to transfer critically-injured or ill patients to regional hospitals. With an emergency helicopter in permanent residence, Snyder said that emergency patients will be able to get to Charleston in 25 minutes, UVA Medical Center in 32 minutes, Roanoke in 22 minutes and a burn center in North Carolina in one hour and five minutes. Snyder, a former emergency he- licopter pilot himself, said the full- time presence of a medical transport helicopter will save lives by getting people to specialty units within what he calls the "golden hour," the first critical hour after a patient has been critically injured. "That's when lives get saved," said Snyder. www. United Way continued from Front Page students' success, enhance healthcare opportunities for underserved chil- dren and help decrease summertime learning loss. Statistics show that those four items typically affecting low-in- come households - school readiness, healthcare access, summer learning loss and chronic absences - dramati- cally affects children's literacy; These literacy gaps are important, because by third grade, should a child read below grade level; they are 13 times more likely to drop out of school, perpetuating the poverty cycle. " We are working together to raise awareness and shine a spotlight on the importance of literacy. We want to connect people to people, needs to resources, and experts to advocates to enable a commitment to reading throughout the Greenbrier Valley," said United Way of Greenbrier Valley Executive Director Cindy Lavender- Bowe. The partnership allows Greenbrier County Schools to harness their abil- ity to get state and federal funding with United Way's local outreach to link school-based literacy programs to those located both inside and out- side the schools. One such program is Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, an initiative set forth by the famous country music singer to give children one book a month until they turn five. Greenbrier County Schools Early Childhood Education Director Nancy Hanna says that literacy gaps have been shown to close when a child has just 12 books in the home. This program can give children 60 age- appropriate books. Greenbrier County Schools will promote the Imagination Library in- house through its pre-K and kinder- garten programs, and the United Way will promote it through churches, WIC, the birth-to-three medical pro- gram, libraries and the Family Re- source Network. "The United Way works with 30 different nonprofits in Greenbrier County," said Lavender-Bowe. "We are creating networks to enhance individual programs throughout the area."
