    Flooding in Logan, W.Va.

    Front page of the Charleston Daily Mail today after flash flooding in Southern West Virginia. 

    I spent the largest portion of my childhood growing up in Logan and attended grade school and middle school in the county. It still has a very special place in my heart and hate to see this extreme flooding and devastation.

    I stumbled across this photo yesterday and had to share…basically depicts my childhood growing up in the Southern coalfields of Logan, West Virginia.

    The photo above was taken in Logan, WV in 1960 and is featured in a LIFE gallery of unseen photos of JFK. See the full album here, which also features photos of Kennedy in Welch, West Virginia where Hollow will be filmed.
Photo Caption: While part of every candidate’s retinue, security was simply not the pressing, public concern in 1960 that it would suddenly and necessarily become within a few short years. Here, seemingly alone in a crowd in Logan County, West Virginia, JFK speechifies from a kitchen chair as, mere feet away, a young boy absently plays with a jarringly realistic-looking toy gun.
