Top DUI-Busting Officers Honored
Law enforcement officers who are the best in West Virginia at nabbing impaired drivers are being honored for their diligence.
Called the Top 52 Enforcers, they are deemed the best in the state for drunken- and drugged-driving apprehension. They were honored at a conference at The Resort at Glade Springs sponsored by the WV Governor’s Highway Safety Program. The conference was titled “Highway2Enforcement”.
The conference that ran from May 15-17 aimed at bringing police from around the state together to focus on detecting and apprehending drivers suspected of being under the influence.
The gathering included courses that focused on drunken-driving checkpoints, field-sobriety testing and new laws.
Terrell Ellis & Associates assisted in the planning and facilitation of this conference.

Conserving Land, Preserving a Legacy
This great article was featured in the West Virginia Land Trust’s Winter Snap Shots newsletter that was distributed this month. In addition, the Land Trust Alliance has featured this story in their newsletter, as well.
Page Dickson of Ronceverte, WV decided to preserve her family’s farm with a conservation easement through the West Virginia Land Trust. According to Terrell Ellis, Senior Program Manager for the West Virginia Land Trust “The discussion begins with the Land Trust understanding exactly what the land owner’s hopes and wishes are for the land.” Ellis continued, “After we gain that understanding, it then becomes our job to identify the important environmental and ecological features of that land and to make sure the land owner’s vision aligns with our conservation criteria and values. An easement is then crafted around both. Through discussion with the property owner we were able to balance our collective wishes for land protection with a practical approach toward keeping this a working farm.”
