MARLINTON- Walt Helmick is one candidate who's election battle isn't uphill, it's all downhill. That's not to say it will be easy, but "...that's the gravity of the situation," Helmick joked at a Sunday press conference.
Helmick is a Democrat running for West Virginia's Agricultural Commission. His 'crop' is spring water that flows from a natural spring and down the side of a mountain to his Marlinton, W.VA. 'farm'.
The hills of Marlinton, West Virginia were blazing after bottle rockets veered from their intended target and caught a field of marijunia on fire. As the flames got higher, apparently the crowd did too, as they actually prevented firemen from gaining access to put out the fire.
