MARTINS FERRY Attorney Karl W. Sommer Jr. was running for the office of Belmont County Prosecuting Attorney in the 1980 election. His Ohio State University football coach and good friend, Woody Hayes, drove to the area to campaign with him at a number of stops around the county. At their campaign rally at Ohio University Eastern, Lansing resident Doris Craig presented Woody with an OSU afghan she had made for him. Sommer still resides in Martins Ferry. Craig now lives in St. Clairsville and recently celebrated her 98th birthday. Hayes died in 1987. Submitted by Jean Craig
