  • Rest rooms and Break area are … We ask that you return to your seats promptly from breaks to be ready for our next speaker. Lunch will be in the Heatherfields REstaurant, just follow the crowd.
  • Please mute all electronic devices and give your full attention to each of our presenters.
  • Conceived and organized initially by Marty Kazmierczak, Gannet Fleming, in early 2007 and sponsored annually by Region 9 since. Average 60 in attendance Rotate meeting location between Jefferson/Berkeley/Morgan Cos. How many of you have attended every one of these meetings? I should have a door prize for you…but I don’t How many have RSVP’d for next year already? … just checking to see who the eager ones are.
  • Year after year we have a terrific variety of sectors represented from all levels of government, to academic, non-profits, businesses and private citizens. This chart gives you a breakdown. We’re up to 57 as of yesterday.
  • ArcGIS Online Subscription ID 6232883334 Username:JeffersonWVGIS Password:Addressing Jessica has mapped where all of us in attendance arrived from today. I wanted to give this year’s travel award to Mr. Average, that is the person who travelled the distance closest to the mean distance in our group. That was 116 miles, which put us b/t Kingwood and Morgantown, but a little closer to Morgantown. Who here came from Morgantown, today? Well too bad. I then threw out the outliers of Tampa (837 miles) and Martinsburg, (352 yards) and that resulted in a mean closest to Camp Hill, PA Who came from Camp Hill? Sorry for your luck too. Did anyone come from a greater distance than Tampa, Florida to be here today? I couldn’t ignore the effort it takes to travel over 11 and ½ degrees of latitude to join us today, so Mr. Average is out the door. Greatest distance travelled gets our first door prize. Congratulations Josh Novac.
  • Now that you have some idea of our group’s composition and where we are coming from, let’s quickly introduce yourselves to the rest of us. Please be brief.
  • Your comments today will begin formulating next year’s agenda. VERY IMPORTANT! Don’t forget to fill out the green form and submit before you leave today.
  • We have entries pinned up on the wall for everyone to review and judge. I believe Cartographers entering or winning in this year’s map gallery are eligible to receive points toward GISP certification. Two of the prizes today are provided by ESRI, so be sure to thank Jake later today. The others were donated by my office, Jefferson County GIS We’ll announce winners at our afternoon break

  • Belle Boyd's espionage career began by chance. According to her 1866 account, on July 4, 1861, a band of Union army soldiers saw a Confederate flag hanged outside her home. They tore it down and hanged a Union flag in its place. This made her angry enough, but when one of them cursed at her mother, she was outraged. Belle pulled out a pistol and shot the man down. She was fuming. A board of inquiry exonerated her, but sentries were posted around the house and officers kept close track of her activities. She profited from this enforced familiarity, charming at least one of the officers, Captain Daniel Keily, [2] into revealing military secrets. "To him," she wrote later, "I am indebted for some very remarkable effusions, some withered flowers, and a great deal of important information." [3] Belle conveyed those secrets to Confederate officers via her slave, Eliza Hopewell, who carried the messages in a hollowed-out watch case. On her first attempt at spying she was caught and told she could be sentenced to death, but was not. She was not scared and realized she needed to find a better way to communicate. [4] One evening in mid-May 1862, Union General James Shields and his staff gathered in the parlor of the local hotel. Belle hid in the closet in the room, eavesdropping through a knothole she enlarged in the door. She learned that Shields had been ordered east from Front Royal, a move that would reduce the Union Army's strength in the town. That night, Belle rode through Union lines, using false papers to bluff her way past the sentries, and reported the news to Colonel Turner Ashby, who was scouting for the Confederates. She then returned to town. When the Confederates advanced on Front Royal on May 23, Belle ran to greet General Stonewall Jackson's men, braving enemy fire that put bullet holes in her skirt. She urged an officer to inform Jackson that "the Yankee force is very small. Tell him to charge right down and he will catch them all." Jackson did and that evening penned a note of gratitude to her: "I thank you, for myself and for the army, for the immense service that you have rendered your country today." For her contributions, she was awarded the Southern Cross of Honor. Jackson also gave her captain and honorary aide-de-camp positions. [5] After her lover gave her up, Belle Boyd was arrested on July 29, 1862, and brought to the Old Capitol Prison in Washington on July 30, 1862, [6] where there was an inquiry on August 7, concerning violations of orders that Boyd be kept in close custody. [7] She was held for a month before being released on August 29, 1862, when she was exchanged at Fort Monroe. [8] She was later arrested and imprisoned a third time. On December 1, 1863, she was released, suffering from typhoid, and was then sent to Europe to regain her health. The blockade runner she attempted to return on was captured and she fell in love with the prize master, Samuel Hardinge, who later married her in England after being dropped from the United States Navy's rolls for neglect of duty in allowing her to proceed to Canada and then England. Hardinge's subsequent attempt to reach Richmond, Virginia was thwarted when he was detained by Union hands, but died soon after his release. While in England Belle Boyd Hardinge had a stage career and published "Belle Boyd in Camp and Prison". She died in 1900 while touring the western United States. Boyd is buried in Spring Grove Cemetery, Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin.

  • Exploration of the west went on in spite of the Kings objections and in 1670 John Lederer was the first European to set foot into present West Virginia. The 1671 Thomas Batts and Robert Fallam was the most important who discovered the New River note worthy as a river that flowed west rather than east. They named the River Wood River after Adam Wood but it didn't stick. They went as far as Peter falls at the present boarder of VA/WV. In 1673 another expedition led to the discovery of the Kanawha Valley. French explorer La Salle explored Branches of the Ohio as early as 1669.
  • Please don’t forget to submit your ballots for our map gallery. We will announce those winners at our afternoon break.
