Butcher, who, along with Mr. Ed Talbou, is beading up an effort to secure governmental funding to construct a concrete dam at Sand Fork. According to a document supplied by these coordinators, a Sand Fork dam would stop most of the flooding downstream on the Little Kanawha River. Simultaneously, Mr. Butcher concedes that Sand Fork people, themselves, are not signing the petition in the numbers that he'd anticipated. "People don't want to lose their farms," he points out. Nevertheless, he's confident that the positive economic impact of such a dam will eventually sway them to favor the resulting lake. / Courteous .=.

Butcher believes all stu- dents deserve a better life, and the key to that end is change. "My methods of affecting change begin by showing students that settling for the status quo is simply not acceptable," she says. "Not all of my students are col- lege bound, but all of them are shown that training beyond high school is essential and necessary in today's glo- bal society. I encourage students to find their greatest talent and to build upon that talent." Butcher has been maximizing her own talents for 15 years. Today, she became one of only 10 teachers state- wide to earn a 2004 Arch Coal Teacher Achievement Award. Steven F. Leer, Arch Coal president and chief execu- tive officer, made the announcement, accompanied by West Virginia Gov- ernor Bob Wise; Secretary of Educa- tion and Arts Kay Goodwin; State Schools Superintendent Dr. David Stewart; and WVEA President Tom Lange, in a presentation ceremony at the state capitol. "When I see the accomplishments of our honorees, I know the students of West Virginia are in good hands," says Leer. "Each day, these teachers challenge, inspire and help students develop a passion for life-long learn- ing. Arch Coal is proud to recognize some of the state's most talented teach- ~ilmer Goings On~ SING There will be, a sing at the Cedar Creek Community Building every third Saturday, starting at 7 p.m. ers." Butcher teaches English courses to sophomores and juniors at Gilmer County High School, Glenville. "Not only do students need to be equipped with academic skills, but they also need to be aware that they live in a global society, even in Central West Virginia," notes Butcher, who IS otten referred to as the "muhicultural queen," for her classroom focus. "I incorporate culture to teach students tolerance, understanding and aware- ness," she explains. She also encourages students to reach beyond average goals or expec- tations. "If one sets high expectations, one will work harder to achieve them," Butcher notes. "I work to facilitate, questions, direct and guide students to reach high expectations. Students sometimes want to cling to the status quo, but my objective is to urge them to achieve greater success by grow- ing, reaching and learning." Butcher earned both her bachelor's and master's degrees at West Virginia University, Morgantown, and addi- tional certification at Glenville State. She participated in a 2002 West Vir- ginia Humanities Council 10-day Shakespearean study in England; the 2002 Toyota Internatiolaal Teachers program; and the Department of Education's Effective Schools train- ing. Butcher has earned numerous professional recognitions and awards. Her future goals include applying for a Fullbright Memorial study and em- barking on a doctoral program. Butcher further supports her commu- nity through involvement in a range of community-betterment activities. In addition to recognition, award recipients receive a $2,500 unre- stricted cash prize, a distinctive tro- phy and a classroom plaque. The Arch Coal teacher recognition program fea- tures public nomination and peer se- lection. The West Virginia Founda- tion for the Improvement of Educa- tion is making a $ 1,000 award to each recipient's school for use with at-risk students.

It's located in Louis Bennett Hall and is open to the general public each [ Informatmn and team captain Away the Night... | packets are available from Renee Father Edwin Daschbach, SVD Movie "The Passion of the Christ" As of the writing of this article, our nearest movie theater, Weston 4, was unable to give information on its scheduling of Mel Gibson's film The Passion of the Christ. I have not seen the film yet as it is scheduled to open Ash Wednesday, February 25 across the US (the day this article will be printed in the Gienville papers). It is important that all who see the film - and,judging from the reports to date, I encourage all readers to see it - need to have some clear ideas about the place of Jews in Christfs crucifixion and death. The history of anti-Semitism in the world, and its apparent continuance today in many quarters, has de- veloped from a misinterpretation of the Scriptures reporting Christ's Pas- sion. My own Catholic Church has been at pains to warn of such abuse of the Bible. Misreading of the Gospel texts has resulted in Jews of that time as a whole, rather than certain Jewish leaders then, being guilty and there- fore blamed for Christ's death. The anti-Semitism behind the holocaust in Europe developed because of not only that misreading but of an exten- sion of blame to Jews of all ages. While it is true that an early writer like Origen states: The bloodofJesus came not only upon those who then lived, but upon all generations of Jews who followed thereafter even to the end of the world, this is not orthodox Christian teaching, for it is not a valid expression of what is presented in Scripture. The old Passion Plays so promi- nent and prolific in my youth also fell into the error of collective Jew- ish guilt. On the contrary, the Gos- pels make it clear that the sympathy of Joseph and Nicodemus for Jesus was anything but unique. Jesus was so popular among the Jews that he had to be arrested at night. Luke talks of women of Jerusalem weeping for him. Jesus shared the teaching of many Pharisees on the . final judgment and res- .-. ;- urrection of those who die. He wasn't hostile to "all" Pharisees. The Roman Cat- echism of the Catholic Church spells out the essential rea- son for Christ's dying: "Since our sins made the Lord Christ suffer the torment of the cross, those who plunge themselves into disorders and crimes crucify the Son of God anew in their hearts. "Our sinful deeds are a denial of him. They are our way of laying violent hands on his person. See the movie. But for heaven's sake, approach it with an "it is as it was" that many believe Mel Gibson faithfully produced: not a condem- nation of Judaism, but an under- standing of how our sins brought about such terrible and unjust suf- fering. I encourage all my Latin students to see it for another reason as well. The dialogue is Latin (with English subtitles).
