Stairway to Heaven

Ray Wills (foreground) Brian Taylor (hat) and Mike Sprague bust out the old tile that covered the steps to Ronceverte Presbyterian Church. The tile will be replaced with a rubber sealer and flagstones. Taylor, owner of Vintage Stone based in Nimitz, started the company in 1983. The work will stop the leaking that has caused problems in a room under the steps. The passing person caught in the background is Stephen Baldwin, pastor of the church and member of the West Virginia House of Delegates, who just happened to arrive as pictures were being taken.
