Its gross B&C score was 136.5. Gluacoma, and Treatments Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world, ac- cording to the World Health Organi- zation. Although mostly found in adults, in rare cases, it can also strike children and teenagers. Please find information below about A.J. DeGeorge, age 27, who has been re- ceiving glaucoma treatment since his diagnosis at age 13, He exhibited no signs or symptoms of the disease and his condition was only discovered through a routine eye exam. There is no cure for glaucoma and unfortunately, once sight is lost to the disease, it cannot be restored. The good news is that if glaucoma is diagnosed and treated early, the damaging effects can be diminished. Prevent Blindness America is joining with other leading eye health groups in participating in National Glaucoma Awareness Month to urge everyone to get an eye exam by an eye care professional. The non-profit group offers a free resource directory to the public for those who may need finan- cial assistance. !iiii!iiiiiiii!!!iiii!i}iii!iiiiiii iiii!!iiii!iiiil} iiii!}ii!ili liii!i!!i!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii 1KNiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii;iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii}iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!i!!!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii1[iiiiiiiiiiiii}ii N ii!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiNi!iiiiii!iiiiiiiiiNiiiiiiiiiiiiNi! iiiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiig!iiiiiiiiiiiiiii!iii!ii!i!i!iiiiii.iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigi iiii i i iii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiNiiiii ! i   i  Nii!!iiiii!!":'!i!!! :.:..

Christmas Activities Give Way to 2009 This picture of my two brothers, Eugene and Harold, my sister, Caren, and cousins, Carl and Luanne, was taken at my 80th birthday party. The Conrad and Allen families often vis- ited when we were growing up. I was happy that they helped me celebrate my birthday. The lovely cake was made by Donna Moore, of Normantown. Cousins Luanne and Carl had been vacationing at their Gilmer County cabin and visiting family and friends. Later that week, they cut their vaca- tion short, because Luanne wasn't feeling very good; they returned home to Elyria, OH. Luanne spent a few days in the hospital, but she is fine now. She might have to have her 34- year-old artificial hip replaced. I received a Christmas Basket from the Oak Grove Baptist Church and one from the Rosedale Baptist Church. I want to thank both churches for their thoughtfulness. I now have a really nice supply of fruit and snacks. I ate Christmas dinner with daugh- ter, Marina, and family, and I was with the family when they opened their Christmas presents. Santa had left me some nice presents there. Great-grandson, Kraden Mitchell, enjoyed passing out the presents and openinghis presents. Grandson, Ben, has been working in .Kentucky, but he got to spend the holidays with his family. Getting the mail has been lots of fun. I have gotten cards,with pictures and messages, from so many people whom I haven't heard from for so long. I guess next year, I will hae to get in gear earlier and send cards. On Christmas Day, son, Tim, and wife, Debby, came oyer and brought me some nice Christmas presents and my lunch. We had a good visit, and they {ook their rabbit dogs hunting. They didn't find any rabbits. Todd and daughter, Regina, and Mike and daughter, Jo Ann, ate sup- per and spent Christmas evening with me. I got more nice presents; I guess Santa must have thought I had been good. ! got several good books, and I'm looking forward to reading them. All of my family plan to get together Sunday afternoon and evening. Most years, Christmas-week weather is too bad to travel. This year, we have been promised good weather. Son-in-law, Roger, brought me an . obituary of Betty Hardman Boggs. I think Betty must have been a grade or two behind me at Normantown. She lived in Ohio, but she was buried in Gilmer County.

The Importance Of A Radon-Resistant Home Greener Living=Healthier Indoor Air If you want to live a more sustain- able life and protect your family from cancer, you may want to learn more about one of the home's most danger- ous pollutants-radon. Radon is acan- cer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can't see, smell or taste. It's the leading cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers and claims about 20,000 lives every year. Although lung cancercan be treated. the survival rate is one of the lowest for those with cancer. Fortunately, many of the causes of lung cancer can be prevented-and this is especially true for radon. The Office of the Surgeon General has issued a health advisory warning Americans about the risk from breath- ing radon in indoor air. Americans are urged to test their homes to find out how much radon they might be breath- ing. Radon comes from the natural (ra dioactive) breakdown of uranium in 4 1/2 "Sumac Court, ct.

Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building - homes, offices and schools - and can climb to high levels if it's trapped indoors. Per most Americans, the greatest exposure to radon is in their homes. whether those homes are old or new. Any home, any type, any location can have a radon problem. All homes need to be tested unless the building is a high-rise above the third floor. If your home has not been tested, now is a good time to take the test. This will help protect your family's health and it's easy to do. The Envbnmental Protection Agency (EP recommends homes be fixed if th, radon level is 4 pico- curies per liter of air (4pCi/L) or above. While testing can be easy and inex- pensive, millions of Americans still need to have their first_ home radon test to protect their family. You can test your home yourself or hire a professional. Reliable testing devices are available by phone or mail order and can be purchased in hardware and home improvement stores. Fixing a radon problem is easy too- and doesn't have to be costly. Radon reduction systems can lower radon to an acceptable level. Even very high levels can be reduced to a safer level. "It's inexpensive to build a new home with radon-resistant features. A better home will be both greeener for the planet and healthier for your fam- ily," said Fuad Reveiz. a member of the National Association of Home Builders.
