As the first African-American woman to achieve the rank of major general in the U.S. Army, Marcia M. Anderson helped inspire Letterkenny Army Depot employees Friday as they observed Black History Month. In a keynote speech focusing on “Black Women in American Culture and History,” the 30-year career soldier spoke of her personal philosophy for success. “It's not your ZIP code or your family history that determines where you end up in life so much as what's in your heart and what's in your brain,” Anderson told Letterkenny employees.

A great affirmation will be heard in many churches this Sunday around the world with the saying, “He is risen!” with congregants responding, “He is risen indeed!” Christians will be celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ from his tomb outside the city of Jerusalem almost 2,000 years ago.  Many churches will be crowded. Some leaders joke privately about “CE” (Christmas and Easter) Christians that show up twice a year. Others in declining congregations can at least expect to see some friends they have not seen for a while.

The Bard recommended that all lawyers should be killed. Many Americans share that sentiment, at least to some extent. While the mass extermination suggested by Shakespeare is not going to happen, there is hope for those who feel overlawyered: Fewer lawyers are being made. Law school enrollment is falling and has been for several years. The Law School Admission Council reports that applications have fallen from about 100,000 in 2004 to about 50,000 in the current year. Enrollment has fallen from about 50,000 students to fewer than 40,000, about where it was 30 years ago. The result: Law schools are cutting faculty, extending tuition discounts and a few schools might be threatened with closure or merger.

For the first time since it was founded in 1985, the West Virginia Association for Justice named an Eastern Panhandle jurist as its Judge of the Year. David H. Sanders, chief judge of the 23 Circuit, which covers Morgan, Berkeley and Jefferson counties, was presented with the honor Friday afternoon in his Jefferson County courtroom. About 50 people, including family members, friends, co-workers, members of the bar and local officials, attended the ceremony. Martinsburg Attorney D. Michael Burke, a member of the association's board of directors, presented a small plaque to Sanders, which read in part: “In recognition of his exemplary service to West Virginia's court system and the rule of law.” “For the life of me, I can't think of what remarkable thing I may have done to merit this kind of attention,” Sanders told the audience.
