Boos and applause

June 29, 2013
The Inter-Mountain

- Applause to the newly renamed Alderson Broaddus University. The name change - and the "graduation" from college to university - was made official by Secretary of State Natalie Tennant in Charleston Thursday.

- Applause to the filmmakers who created "Angel's Perch," a movie shot almost entirely in Cass, for having their world premiere in Charleston this week. The film also played for four showings in Elkins this week, with filmmakers holding a question-and-answer session after Monday evening's screening. The movie deals with Alzheimer's, a disease that affects many victims, families and caretakers in the Mountain State.

- Applause to Energy Express, an award-winning statewide reading program in its 20th year. Two sites are offering services in Randolph County this summer, one each at George Ward and Third Ward Elementary Schools. The program provides two meals a day and reading-based educational activities that help children maintain their reading skills and good nutrition during the summer months.

- Applause to the many volunteers who help put on the sun-drenched extravaganza known as Coalton Days last weekend. Participants had a blast taking in the event's music, food and beverages, and then enjoyed a parade through town. Coalton Days is one of the most enjoyable local events each year, and everyone involved with the event deserves praise.

- Applause to all who helped put on the annual Tygart Chili Cook-off in Philippi last weekend. The spicy event is always one of the year's "hottest" activities.

- Boo to the rainy weather predicted for the area during the next few days. Here's hoping the skies clear in time for Fourth of July festivities.
