Jack Cawthon now lives in Morgantown, having sprung from the wilds of Gilmer County. He has been a long-time columnist for The West Virginia Hillbilly, and a former friend and associate of its late founder Jim Comstock. Cawthon is an accomplished and witty writer, having been published in many venues over the years. He's a trip!

I have read and followed him since he was doing his student teaching at Calhoun County High School in the 50's, during which time he was the youngest newspaper editor in West Virginia. He went on to work on the old West Virginia Conservation magazine, a forerunner to Wonderful West Virginia. He has been a longtime friend of the Rev. Glendon McKee, retired United Methodist minister from Mt. Zion.

He is among my favorite writers and we are sure the readers of The Herald will appreciate him. We are grateful for his decision to contribute to our publication.
