In the critical eyes of college football, wins are essential but don't mean anything without one important element - proof.

In 1996, we were just beginning to understand the power of the Internet and the world of opportunity it would open for students. We knew businesses and communities relied on it - and we knew it was important to give students access to technology, no matter where they live, so they could thrive in this new economy. That's when I decided to come up with a way every West Virginia school could get online. I sat down and wrote a bill that created what we call the E-rate program - a funny name that basically means schools and libraries have the ability, at a discounted rate, to purchase technology and connect to the Internet.

Those who spent the last 15 years figuring out how to spin open fields into strip mall and subdivision gold might have somewhat run their course, as the nation is becoming more aware of the value of locally grown foods and pastoral settings. Small growers are popping up in Washington County as fast-food joints once did, producing everything from delicious, pasture-raised poulet rouge chicken to meaty Boer goats targeted to the growing ethnic population.
