39 Years Ago Today: Glen Rogers advances to the State Boys Basketball Tournament!

In the Raleigh Register 39 Years Ago Today:
Glen Rogers advances to the State Boys Basketball Tournament for the first time in 41 years!

Do we have any sports fans out there? We hope so! For many of us who attended John McGraw School, the next step in our education was heading up Glen Rogers High School. Because of this, for the rest of the month we're going to be following the Glen Rogers Owls as they advance through the WV Boys High School Basketball Tournament. There will be 13 articles coming up between now and March 30. 

Beckley used to have morning (Beckley Post-Herald) and afternoon (Raleigh Register) newspapers until they merged to form the Register-Herald, the current daily newspaper. Because of this, some days we will be featuring both a morning and an afternoon post to make sure you have all of the coverage. If you're not a sports fan, we apologize, but a great many of you may remember this historic season, and may know or be related to members of the team.

Today we pick up on Glen Rogers advancing to the state tourney!
As always, you can click on the article to expand and/or print them!

The next article is coming up on the 23rd, so remember to check back then.

Today in McGraw History - March 9, 1920

Today in McGraw History. . .

March 9, 1920, 96 years ago

Some of you have heard our Counsin Warren talk about how John & Mahala's son, H.G (Dad), was the first house in our section of the county to have natural gas service. We found this note in the Charleston newspaper from 1920 sowing that the drilling of his well was complete. The well is played out and hasn't been in production in memory.
