Congressman Mollohan and Democrat Chairperson, Marge Evans

Democrat Congressman Allan Mollohan came to Calhoun Friday to present a check to Calhoun Schools for $200,000 and ask county residents to support Jim Humphreys, the Democrat candidate for Congress.

The congressman presented the grant to Calhoun school superintendent Ron Blankenship before Friday's homecoming game at Mt. Zion. The grant comes from Mollohan's non-profit Vandalia Heritage Foundation which he started in 1998 to assist with historic re-development and community revitalization.

Blankenship expressed appreciation on behalf of Calhoun citizens. The grant is being used for upgrading the bleachers at the new athletic complex, the completion of the facilities building and completion of the re-located county board office behind Calhoun Middle/High School.

The congressman was instrumental in obtaining about $225,000 for the restoration of the Stump Hotel in Grantsville three years ago. The Calhoun Historical Society restoration project, which includes a family history center, is still anticipated.

Mollohan, whose father was the late Congressman Robert Mollohan from Calhoun, told party faithful at the Democrat headquarters in Grantsville that Humphreys would best represent the people of West Virginia. "We need him in Congress," he said.

Calhoun Democrat Chairperson Marge Evans said Humpheys would fight for the people, protect Social Security, guarantee prescription drug coverage under Medicare and invest in education.
