West Virginia has been in the national news ever since Friday night's storm, which has caused the entire Mountain State to be declared a disaster area.
It usually takes a natural disaster such as a flood or a coal mine accident for West Virginia to steal the national spotlight.
But that statement won't hold water come Thursday.
That's when the Greenbrier Classic gets under way.
For four days, one of the world's most outstanding resorts will take center stage in the golf world.
But the Greenbrier Classic is unlike any other golf tournament. The other tournaments on the PGA Tour are about golf and only golf.
The Greenbrier Classic, thanks to owner Jim Justice, provides its guests with the best golfers in the world by day and the best entertainers in the world by night.
That format was highly successful last year and no doubt will be again this year.
Justice has enticed Tiger Woods -fresh off his weekend victory -to make his first appearance at the tournament, which also will feature Phil Mickelson.
If you have a favorite golfer, odds are they will be at the Greenbrier this week. After last year's event, word spread among the pros that this was a first-class event you would be a fool to miss.
So virtually everyone on golf's Who's Who list will be at the tournament.
In fact, they already have arrived.
Practice rounds began on Monday and will continue today and Wednesday before the Greenbrier Classic begins bright and early on Thursday, when gates open at 7 a.m.
The outstanding international field of golf superstars in itself would be enough to cause the tournament to attract a huge turnout.
But wait until you see the lineup of entertainers Justice is bringing to the Mountain State.
Wednesday night's concert features country legend Toby Keith, courtesy of the red, white and blue, along with Lionel Richie, who may sing all night long, if he's not too busy dancing on the ceiling.
On Friday night, Rod Stewart, who normally plays Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, will be the featured entertainer, belting out hits such as Tonight's The Night.
Saturday night, Bon Jovi will be living out a prayer.
Justice proved last year he knows how to put on a show.
In fact, he's putting on two major shows -one involving golf, the other the music world.
Justice is a multi-talented, multi-faceted man.
As if owning the Greenbrier wasn't enough to keep him busy, he also serves as the head boys and girls basketball coach at Greenbrier East High School.
His Spartans girls team won the Class AAA state championship earlier this year.
It's great to see the national media coming to West Virginia to report positive news.
We owe thanks to Jim Justice.
