CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Longtime West Virginia Senate Clerk Darrell Holmes is retiring next week.

The Senate first elected Holmes as its clerk in 1989. His last day is Jan. 9.

Holmes tells the Associated Press that he has enjoyed the job.

The Senate Clerk's Office provides assistance to senators and produces the daily Senate journal. As clerk, Holmes oversees 41 full-time employees. During legislative sessions, about 120 part-time workers are hired.

In retirement, he says he's thinking about reopening a machine shop that he ran when he served in the Legislature.

The Kanawha County Democrat served four terms in the House of Delegates and two terms in the Senate before he became the Senate clerk.
