If perseverance was rewarded, Calhouners Danny Law and Bob Bonar would receive special recognition.

The men have long volunteered in the effort to bring a modern highway through Calhoun County, serving on the Little Kanawha River Parkway Authority.

Law serves as vice-president of the authority.

The idea of a parkway connecting I-77 at Mineral Wells and I-79 near Burnsville started in Calhoun County in the 1970s.

While the project has made little headway with state highway officials, the Parkway has almost fallen off the highway planning list.

A group of interested individuals have never given up, including long-time supporter Reta Kight of Gilmer County.

Kight said the county "should be proud of their dedication" of Law and Bonar.

The 2009 WV Legislature appropriated $48,500 to continue the operations of the authority.

The Calhoun Commission is looking for a third volunteer to serve on the Parkway Authority. Interested individuals should call Clerk Richard Kirby, 304-354-6725.
