Many people in Calhoun County and the area are community minded, generous and dedicated. The Hur Herald staff would like to recognize those individuals and groups for all they do. We ask our readers to submit names of individuals or groups, along with a brief description of why they are Shining Stars.

To all those who have made donations and contributed in any way to The Hur Herald, including news stories and columns. We thank you.

The County Commissioners for balancing the budget. Having a good audit, keeping the county in the black and paying down the $100,000 regional jail bill to zero dollars, and to county employees who work for very low wages and deliver many services to the citizens.

The Parents of Youth League Football for going ahead and making improvements to Wayne Underwood Field.

The Lights-On committee for a great concert by the Wheeling Symphony and the donor who made the wonderful fireworks possible.

The Calhoun County Athletic Complex Committee and many volunteers and contributors for a job well done on having the stadium ready for the first ball game.

The leaders in our County who make the tough decisions, and for withstanding the heat when that decision turns out not to be so "popular."

Those who came out last week in support of the benefit for infant Bailey Tyler Lawson.

The Calhoun Historical Society for their restoration of the Stevens one-room school and the volunteers and workers that made it happen.

Congressman Alan Mollohan for obtaining a $200,000 grant to help with the athletic field at Calhoun Middle/High School and the completion of new offices for the county school board.

Resigned volunteers Wanda Richards and crew, who gave hundreds of hours to the Minnora Community Center, and to the volunteers who will come forth to serve on a new board at the center.

The Calhoun County High School football team, parents, coaches, and fans for making this a season of a lifetime.

Band Director Harry Beall and his marching band musicians for their after-school efforts, hardwork and dedication in performing for the community.

We would like to thank Jim Sullivan and others for contributing to our first Shining Star list.
