Company Is Giving Away Child Safe Kits
It's every parent's fear: You turn your back for a second and your precious child is gone.
Usually it's a heart-stopping false alarm. Most kids are found at the candy machine, or playing video games-just a few feet away. However, some children are kidnapped by predators and simply disappear.
When a kidnapping happens, time and information are crucial. Quickly providing police with accurate information about your child to help them help you can make or break their chances of finding your child.
How do you give authorities all they need to know to find your child without losing precious time? Do you know your child’s height? Do you have a current photo of your child? Can you provide fingerprints for your child? A DNA sample? Your answer to these questions may be yes, but is this critical information in one easy-to-find location? To give your child every chance to be found as early as possible, a Teays Valley life insurance company is giving you a no-cost Child Safe Kit® for each child in your home.
More than 500,000 children are reported missing each year. Endorsed and supported by the nation's leading law enforcement union, this Child Safe Kit adds an extra level of assurance for the family and shows our ongoing support and commitment to the community.
No cost to the parents/guardians or the school or child care center.
To get your free Child Safe Kit, just send an email with your name and telephone number to:email@example.com.
A life insurance presentation accompanies the free kits.
Questions Arise About Residency Of Judge
One thing is certain: Judge Deloris J. Nibert wants to finish the term of former Putnam County Family Law Judge William M. "Chip" Watkins, III.
What is in question is whether Nibert lives in Putnam County-which is a requirement.
Hurricane Legal Researcher and Free-lance Legal Reporter Lawrence J. Smith says he cannot find any property, in Putnam County, owned by Nibert, and that she isn't registered to vote here-but is registered to vote in Mason County-where she used to serve as the family court judge.
Property tax records and The West Virginia State Bar records show Nibert as a resident of Apple Grove.
In a December 19th, 2013 email to Amy Goodwin, of West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin's office (who may appoint Nibert), Smith says:

Sheriff Deweese Details Monthly Crime Numbers
What is happening with crime in Putnam County? You want to know. We want you to know. PutnamLIVE.com is inviting Putnam County police chiefs and Sheriff Steve Deweese to provide us with his department's figures each month.
The following numbers are released by Deweese for November, 2013:
TV Doctor Driving BMW With Expired Tag
He lives in a $750,000 home, drives an expensive RV to Disney Destinations, and drives his "Spoiled" wife's BMW convertible-complete with an expired (orange) license plate tag-when he isn't parking it in a handicapped spot at WCHS-TV-8/FOX 11's Charleston studio, or in the doctor's parking lot at CAMC's Women's and Children's Hospital, in Charleston.
He, is Joseph Henry Matusic, Jr., the Eyewitness News "Baby Steps" pediatrician. When PutnamLIVE.com tried to ask him why his tag wasn't current, he drove away, even attempting to evade our camera by driving into an apartment complex parking lot. It didn't work.
The exclusive PutnamLIVE.com video is posted above this story. Charleston Police tell PutnamLIVE.com that the sticker expired in October, 2013. Other police, in several cities, and the Putnam County Sheriff's Department have been notified about Matusic. We're betting he updates the tag very soon.
Meanwhile Eyewitness News told PutnamLIVE.com they were calling the Charleston Police about our "filming" in the parking lot. (No one shoots film anymore!) We told them the police had already been called-by us-about Matusic's tag, and they told us shooting video in a publicly-accessible parking lot was perfectly legal. A spokesman for CAMC says he is looking into Matusic's parking privileges.
The question remains: Why doesn't Matusic pay to register his car like the rest of us?
Meanwhile, former employees of his wife, Pamela Samantha Greathouse Johnson Osborne Simpkins Matusic, are taking legal action for alleged non-payment of wages-at two of her now-closed day care facilities.
