MOUNT PISGAH MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH, FROM CROOKED FORK Former Resident; t00ecalled; Spring Near During WWII and for several years after, lots of Gilmer County young people could not find work in Gilmer County, so they went to OH to find employment. Some of them got to- gether and organized this Church in Grafton, OH. They often invite preach- ere from WV to preach there. Eld. Charles Fisher was the pastor for sev- eral years there. He would drive there on Saturday, and preach that evening, then preach on Sunday morning and drive back home that evening. Many of these workers are now retired and often get together at spe- cial restaurants for breakfast. Most of them depend on the Glenville Demo- crat for news from home. Word has been received of the death of a former Crooked Fork resident Sherman "Bub" Deulley in Clarksville, TN. His parents were "Bee" and Daisy Deulley and they were neighbors of ours when he was growing up. When a teenager, Bub helped Dad put up hay, cut filth, cut timber and was a part of the wheat thrashing crew more than once..He was a WWII veteran and retired from service. Ann Hardman Hamric passed away in OH last week. I remember Ann's first day of school. She got on the bus at the Bailey Stump Curve and went to Normantown. I remember her mother was standing on the porch watching her little girl get on the bus. When we lived on Briar Lick, Ann's grandparents Frank and Annie Hardman were our special neighbors. Both families have our deepest sym- pathy. Old man winter hasn't given up yet, but I think spring is just around the corner. One day last week Austin White plowed gardens on Cub Fork, Howard Wankmuller told me he hopes to plant his peas soon and the days are getting lots longer.

Helpful Cooking Hints: Never put a cover on anything that is cooked in milk. unless you want to spend hours cleaning up the store when it boils over. Slip your hand inside a waxed sand- wich bag and you have a perfect mitt for greasing your baking pans and casserole dishes. Hard boiled eggs will peel easily if cracked and placed in cold water im- mediately after taking out of the hot water.

Wayne received a gift- a IBod tray and the Drive and Dine poem, was all appreciated, the campers are tricky, but we love them all. Drive and Dine Tucked in the hills near Glenville, There lies a special place: Cedar Creek State Park. by name And a campground aide named Wayne. He's been around for quite some time. And ]s known for his friendly ways; He loves to help, he loves to talk. But he really loves to GRAZE! He comes to work at four o'clock And begins to make his rounds: And then as evenings turns to night At each campsite he can be found. He registers new campers in, He talks and takes their pay; But then his thoughts soon turn to food As he travels on his way. Hot dogs, chili, burgers, pie, He loves it all the same; The campers love to see him come, It's just become a game. He always fears that Paul will see. So he hurries while he eats: He tries to bo so nonchalant As be drives along the street. So. we have a special gift for Wayne: A tray to fit his truck He can place it on the window's edge And pray he will have some lick. The campers have their special flags To fly when they have food; So Wayne won't have to waste his time, He wilt know each stop is good. So, when Wayne sees the flag displayed, He wilt know food's on;its way; The goodies will be placed on his tray So he can eat as he drives away! Kay Means, A Cedar Creek Camper Humane Society of Gilmer County Organ&ed A humane society is being formed in Gilmer County. Only seven coun- ties in West Virginia have neither an animal shelter nor humane society. Gilmer, Calhoun and Wirt are three of them. Our County Commission's dog warden fulfills his duties as assigned. He catches stray dogs, takes them to his farm where they are chained to "dog boxes" for a minimum of five days. A list (no photos) is posted in the hall of the courthouse - no further postings. Some time after five days, he takes them to a neighboring county, Spring? : where the majority are quickly put : i' ' down Good luck tO everyone .... } , " Very Mt.
