    Photographer Walter Aegerter (July 8, 1894-May 28, 1965) was born in Helvetia, Randolph County. He was the youngest son of Gottfried and Marianna Dubach Aegerter, who immigrated from Switzerland to Helvetia, in 1885. Walter made his living as a farmer but took up amateur photography as a young man, learning the trade from his father. By the 1890s, the Aegerters were turning out dozens of photographs of local families and the community, using the contemporary glass dry-plate technology. At his death, Aegerter left a large collection of hundreds of images documenting life in this small, Swiss German settlement between the years 1890 and 1930. The glass plate negatives survive to this day, and many photographs are housed at the West Virginia State Archives in Charleston and the West Virginia and Regional History Collection at West Virginia University. Aegerter died in Upshur County.

    If you decide to take a road trip to Helvetia, West Virginia, by all means stop by "The Hutte" and have a wonderful dinner prepared by some local cooks. You never know who you may end up seated next to by the the wood burning stoves in the old house or what musicians may join you or you can bring your own music and singing!  Eleanor Mailoux was the owner of The Hutte Restaurant and The Bee Keeper Inn in Helvetia. She was a teacher in Randolph County Schools and taught in the Helvetia area. Eleanor also served in the American Red Cross in Europe and the Pacific toward the end of World War II. She was a strong supporter of Swiss heritage including folk music, dance and history. A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of dining there while Eleanor was still alive. She didn't stay in her rocking chair long and was soon up and dancing with the rest of the patrons. My understanding is that she was still chopping wood for the stoves prior to her death in 2011. She was 93 years old. What a strong, spirited woman!

    I wasn't going to post this, but since all this #Secession nonsense refuses to die, here it goes. Note that this is satire...

    There has been a lot of secession talk by conservatives in a few regions of the country since the landslide reelection of President Barack Obama. While the historical parallels between this and the conservative backlash against the election of Abraham Lincoln are pretty obvious, this time we, the citizens of the United States of America say "go for it." This time, nobody's going to stop you.

    That being said, there are a few points that need to be addressed before secession occurs. First and foremost, the new boundaries. You cannot have the entirety of the old slave states. Period. You can have the counties that voted overwhelmingly Republican in the last election. See the attached map, and note that unless you want a "swiss-cheese" country, there is a certain amount of border flex that must exist. Note that your new country can have territorial integrity and a port to the sea (near the Louisiana/Texas border) if you play nice. There will be a zone with shared control along the Mississippi River (belonging to both countries). Also, the United States of America will have a guaranteed corridor across the southern port zone.

    I suggest naming this new country the Confederated States of Talibanistan, considering the similarities in attitudes concerning women, LGBT folks, minorities, education, and science. Other suggestions might include the Democratic People's Republic of the South, the Christianist Theocracy of America, the United States of Corporate America, or WhiteWingNutJobville.

    The Confederated States of Talibanistan can contain parts of 26 states:
    Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, and Mississippi. Again, no purple counties will be given to you, only the reddest ones.

    Considering that the Confederated States of Talibanistan will probably have a lot of excess money from the billionaires that will move there to take advantage of the zero tax rate when you cross that bridge, anyone who lives within the borders who wants to leave must be paid the full market value for their house, land, and business property before they join the USA.  

    Enjoy your new paradise, and don't come asking for handouts from the USA next time a disaster strikes.

    Way out in the middle of nowhere in West Virginia, you just might think you've arrived in Switzerland.  Make sure you bring a map and an empty stomach.  You won't want to miss the restaurant there.
