Long-time Wildlife Managers Duffield and Gibson retire

On Nov. 22, Days Hotel in Flatwoods will serve as the venue of a style show honoring Betty Puskar, a breast-cancer survivor who has contributed greatly to care primarily for breast-cancer victims but also for victims of other cancers. This story of Puskar’s battle with cancer began in 1985 and continues today through her ongoing contributions.
In that year, Puskar faced a diagnosis of breast cancer. This woman, had left business college in Virginia years before to marry Mike Puskar, who would become famous for his work with generic drugs and the Mylan company. They began married life in Youngstown, Ohio. From that point until she faced breast cancer, the two had, she said, “lived all over the world.”

A former Braxton resident was recently named Volunteer of the Month for her work with the Make a Wish Foundation. Andrea Ware, a 2002 graduate of Braxton County High School, and her friend Amanda Heaton shared the honor for the month of October.
Ware and Heaton have been working with Make a Wish for a year, and she said she truly enjoys it. She explained her role in the process of fulfilling the wishes of children with life-threatening health conditions. “They pick a child, and then we interview the child and the family.

We also provide activities for each child before the wish is actually fulfilled,” she said.
