Whetsell, cel- ebrates the 60th Anniversary of this event by exploring the events and history surrounding the WVMA as well as its impact upon the landscape, people, and folklore of the region. Robert C. Whetsell, author of 1994 book Elkins West Virginia: The Me- tropolis Revisited and a former histo- rian and archaeologist for the US For- est Service, worked with renowned Elkins filmmaker and folklorist Gerald Milines of the Augusta Heritage Cen- ter of Davis and Elkins College, to bring the story to the small screen. The film project is the result of a November 2002 Media Grant from the West Virginia Humanities Coun- cil to research, film, and produce the 20 minute documentary. Sponsored by the Randolph County Historical Society, the film project resulted in a unique collaborative effort that in- cluded additional support from the Augusta Heritage Center and the U.S. Forest Service.

West Nile Virus West Virginia has two counties re- porting dead birds testing positive for West Nile virus. A dead crow in- fected with West Nile virus has been found in Hardy County; a dead blue jay infected with West Nile virus has been found in Jefferson County. These are West Virginia's first positive West Nile virus birds in 2004. West Nile virus may be spread to people by the bite of an infected mos- quito. As temperatures rise, adult mos- quito flight activity will continue to increase. This increase in activity will continue witht the fall when tempera- tures begin to fall. At that point, de- creasing temperatures will also slow the replication of West Nile virus in the mosquito itself. Until then, prepa- ration and education will go a long way in slowing the spread of the vi- rus. The potential for other counties to test positive is highly likely as tem- peratures continue to rise and mos- quito activity increases. When out- doors during mosquito season, people can protect themselves by being prop- edy clothed in long, loose and light colored clothing and use mosquito repellants containing DEET. When using products that contain DEET, use according to the manufacture's recommendations. Never apply prod- ucts containing DEET to faces and hands of children. In addition, mos- quito populations can be reduced by removing all standing water from your property; bird baths, pet bowls, tires, pots, or even bottle caps. Birds are tested for West Nile at the West Virginia Office of Laboratory Services.
