Thursday, January 15, 2009 -- The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder -- Page 7A Around The Kitchen Table Gc-r aldilae M tr ks 462-7477 Extra Help Makes Work Go Faster Troy Cunningham was my Dad's first cousin. When I first knew him, he lived on Slab Camp of Crooked Fork. On January 5, 1945, Troy mar- ried Juanita Miller. Last week, we received word that on January 1,2009, Juanita passed away and was buried with her husband in the Grafton Vet- erans' Cemetery. According to my genealogy infor- mation, Juanita was a daughter of Doil and Ida Clevenger Miller; but from the age of three, she lived with my great-uncle Eck and Mandy Rich- ard on Slab Camp and grew up a close neighbor ofTroy's. During the 1950s, Troy and Juanitalived on Lower Two Run of Crooked Fork, and Juanita was baptized and became a member of the Oak Grove Baptist Church. The family moved to Greenwood, WV, but Juanita remained a member of the Oak Grove Baptist Church. Ermel Parsons will be 95 years old on January 16. Happy birthday, Ermel! Ermel was our neighbor when we lived on Briar Lick, and she at- tended church at Oak Grove as long as she was able to drive. Ermel has lived in the Chapel Community be- side her son, Robert, for several years. Ermel worked at Rubber Fabrica- tors for several years, and after she retired, she stayed busy sewing quilt tops for family and friends. She says she now spends her time working puzzles and watching TV. Granddaughter, Leslie Turner, who lives in Arizona, recently had a bad day. Her neighbor borrowed Leslie's van, so she could take all her family shopping with her. Leslie took the neighbor's truck and went shopping in the mall. When she came out of the mall, she couldn't find the truck. She looked and looked for the truck and then called the police. Leslie then called her sister, Rachel, and said, "I went shopping, and when I came out, I couldn't find the truck. The truck doesn't belong to me." Rachel told her to call the police, and Leslie told her that she already had called them. Police found the stolen truck close to the Mexican border; the back glass had been broken out, a screwdriver was in the ignition, and all the tires were flat. We have had our shortest day, and the days are supposed to be getting longer. They seem to lengthen aw- fully slowly. Daughter, Regina, and her husband, Todd, were canning sausage at my house one night last week, when daughter, Marina, and her husband, Roger, stopped by on their way home from feeding the cows to help them. The extra hands helped; Roger and Todd made sausage patties, and Regina fried them and put them in jars. Ma- rina washed jars, cleaned offthe jars, and put them in the canner. Todd and Regina got to go home a lot sooner than they had planned. TROY CUNNINGHAM (1910- 1995) J oAnn Woody d 0000edarville.

Doctors are 'Hot' on Cayenne Hundreds of scientific studies have been done on Cayenne pepper. It can help prevent a heart attack, lower blood sugar in diabetics, normalize blood pressure, improve circulation, prevent motion sickness, and even halt the common cold. Things are pretty, graceful, rich, elegant, handsome, but, until they speak to the imagination, not yet beautiful. --Ralph Waldo Emerson GSC Fine Arts Gallery Exhibits Professor's Works The paintings of Liza Brenner, Glenville State College Instructor of Art; will be featured in an exhibit entitled "Paper Herds and Things" at The GSC Fine Arts Gallery, January 12 through March 6. The exhibit will include Brenner's paintings of bulls, matadors, and paper herds, among others. A reoccurring theme of an aggres- sor vs. prey is captured in many of Brenner's paintings. "My interest in this scenario began with the paintings of Manet and Goya. This journey has led me to play with the relationship the bulls and characters have with one another. I am exploring who is after whom, and the cause and effect of each scenario," said Brenner. Brenner earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Drawing from Clarion University in Pennsylvania in 1998. She received a Master of Arts in Art Education from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania in 2000 and a Master of Fine Arts in Painting from Edinboro in 2004. In addition to GSC, Brenner has taught atthe University of Pittsburgh- Greenburg, Thiel College in Greenville, PA, and ITT Technical Institute in Monroeville, PA. Brenner's works have hung in solo exhibitions in Pennsylvania, Geor- gia, and West Virginia. Some of her paintings have been shown in many group exhibitions, including the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. The "Paper Herds and Things" ex- hibit will be open in the GSC Fine Arts Gallery Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and one hour prior to special events in the Fine Arts Building. An open reception with the artist will be held on Tues- day, January 20, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in the Gallery.

Glioblastoma Multiforme is the name of a Grade IV primary malig- nant brain tumor, a very aggressive cancer originating in the brain which is very difficult to treat. Recently, Jane has gone through radiation treatment and chemotherapy. Even in the face of such a fierce enemy such as Glioblastoma, Jane has shown remarkable bravery and courage. Jane's daughters have worked to- gether to create a support group for their mother, "a mighty warrior who continues to fight unflinchingly to- ward recovery and hope." Jane's support group is called the "Be Brave, Be Courageous Phyllis Jane Law Glioblastoma Support Group," and its mission is to educate and empower individuals with Glioblastoma, and their families, to be brave and courageous as they fight against this disease. The"g0up also wants to promote aess in state and local communities about this can- cer and about what people can do to help those who have been diagnosed with this devastating condition. The group is lobbying for addi- tional research to improve available treatment options, with a goal towards one day eradicating this aggressive disease. Glioblastoma is fairly rare, with only two to three cases per 100,000 people per year being diagnosed. It is most common in older adults, and ini males, more so than females. Pres-: ently, there is little to no evidence t indicate that Glioblastoma is inher-i ited or caused by any environmentall factors. Some signs and symptoms to look: out for are: seizures; nausea; vomiting; headaches; progressive memory loss; personality changes; slurred speech; partial paralysis.. It is very important that, if you! suspect that you or someone else has i any of these symptoms, you see your: physician immediately. Jane believes in the power of prayer and faith, and she appreciates her sup-! port group's efforts in trying to assist other individuals and families whoi are coping with this disease.
