Vigil for the Water One Year Later
As we gather here this evening of January 9, 2015, we celebrate that we survived the challenges from last year's poisoning of our water system, and the attack on our health and well-being, and the damage to the small businesses we depend on. It was a time that could have fractured our social fabric and pitted us against one another. However, we joined hands, and what a difference we have made! More

Remembering Elinore Taylor
I can’t remember a time when Elinore Taylor wasn’t associated with OVEC. If you go to our website and type in her name, you will find page after page of results. Elinore was everywhere present in OVEC’s activities and organizational development. Hers was a welcoming smile at board meetings, protests, and public hearings including events that she initiated. Behind that warm smile was not only a friendly, caring woman, but also a dedicated, determined defender of “the least of these, my brethren.” More

Finally, Some Measure of Justice
The first time I spoke with James Olbert, I was completely engaged by his story. He phoned me in my capacity with the West Virginia Council of Churches, wondering if there was anything we could do to help. A self-effacing, pleasant man, Mr. Olbert was obviously deeply distressed. His family cemetery had been purposely bulldozed […] More

All That and Mountains, Too
A year ago, I couldn’t have imagined going to Rio de Janiero, Brazil, let alone going there to participate in the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, known as Rio+20. But it happened this June, and I did it. While I have many reflections on the city and the numerous events, one experience I want to […] More
