2016 – Glenn Copeland – Attorney Who Was Shot And Killed At His Home

Glenn Copeland

This man was a pillar in my development as a teenager by serving in the youth department at Highland Park Baptist church (before it crumbled under the weight of it’s own bureaucracy).  He was a humble man, loved by all of the youth.  My best memory was when he and his lovely wife Pat (also now sadly deceased) had the youth group over to their home (after driving us all over on the church bus).  We watched “The Post Man Always Rings Twice”, a 1980s thriller.  We thought of Glenn as a wise father figure that “gave us our space” which means a lot when you are a teenager.  I miss him greatly.

Learning at home using technology has been a challenge for schools and families as everyone adapts to operating in a new learning arrangement during the pandemic. At East Side Elementary School, the situation has become much more manageable thanks to a $32,500 donation to the school from the Church of the Good Shepherd to purchase needed Chromebooks.

Kanawha Legislature races: Robinson becomes Dem nominee for Palumbo’s seat; incumbent Bartlett ousted | Politics | wvgazettemail.com

House District 39: Only one delegate can represent this district, which includes part of northern Kanawha bordering Putnam, Jackson and Roane counties, including Sissonville.

Incumbent Republican T. Kevan Bartlett (947), who sponsored the successful Bible-in-public-schools law this year, lost to Dana Ferrell (1,271) in the GOP primary, so Ferrell will face David “Woody” Holmes, the only Democrat to file, in November.
