Jim Shepherd dies at age 101

Many of the parks in Monongalia County WV owe their creation to Jim Shepherd, including Mason Dixon Park, Chestnut Ridge Regional Park, and Dorsey's Knob which he helped the City of Morgantown create when he was in his late 90's. Jim died this week at age 101, a wonderful example of older people making valuable contributions to building community by preserving natural places for recreation.
