Boos and applause

May 25, 2013
The Inter-Mountain

-Applause to the Elkins Rotary Club, which is celebrating its 95th anniversary. The club has made many positive differences in the community. Here's wishing the club many more years of activity.

-Applause to all those honored at the annual Randolph County Relay For Life cancer survivors breakfast held at the Steer Steakhouse in Elkins last weekend. More than 100 people attended the event, which also helps raise awareness for the June 8 Randolph County Relay For Life at the Elkins Town Square.

-Applause to everyone who helped present Thursday's Taste of Home Cooking School, a full evening of amazing recipes and awesome prizes. This is the third year The Inter-Mountain has brought the popular event to the Elkins area, and all help in putting the show together was greatly appreciated.

-Applause to the West Virginia University baseball team for demonstrating the Mountaineer spirit of giving during this week's Big 12 Conference tournament in Oklahoma City. While there, the team purchased necessities for the victims of Monday's deadly tornado. The players reportedly filled shopping carts with clothes, shoes, toiletries and other items for the families affected by the disaster. We're proud of the team for what they've accomplished on the field this year, but even more proud of this inspirational generosity off the field.

-Boo to whoever was behind the string of break-ins at six Elkins businesses Wednesday morning. Both property and cash were stolen, and the thieves left behind plenty of damage as well. The West Virginia State Police ask anyone with information about the break-ins to call 304-637-0200.
