Pats on the Back:

– To Wheeling City Councilwoman Wendy Scatterday, who has been appointed as a member of the West Virginia Board of Architects. Scatterday, with a 20-year career in the field, will help ensure architects comply with state rules and laws.

– To the St. Clairsville American Legion post, for donating $1,354.96 that will be used to purchase an automated external defibrilator for the St. Clairsville-Richland City School District.

– To Brownie Scout Maddie Potts, who decided a good community service project would be to urge Bethlehem Village Council to install a safety or security fence outside the dugout area at the village baseball field. Potts’ mother, Marie, told council members her daughter noticed cars being driven near the dugouts and thought a fence would make the area safer. “We will start working on it,” Bethlehem Mayor Tim Bishop pledged.

– To members of the West Liberty University baseball team, who have volunteered to do community service work at Bethlehem’s Community Park this spring.
