Mazzella I was never a starter for my high school football team. No matter how much I trained, and how hard I prac- ticed, I was always on the second string. A few of us backups even jokingly called ourselves the bench boys and gave each other nicknames. Mine was "Splinter." During one of the last games of the year, though, there came a point when I finally made it onto the field with the starters. It was my big chance, and I was determined to prove myself. It wasn't long either "before a fumble miiaculously bounced its way into my hands I saw the end zone and turned to run down the field for a touchdown. It was my shining mo- ment and it felt so good. It lasted for about one second. That is when the shoulder pads of three opposing play- ers crashed into my knees, stomach. and back all at once. It was Splinter's first and last hurrah before heading back to the bench. Since that time I have had a lot of shining moments in m? life although most of them probably didn't look that bright in the eyes of the world. I have come to see. however, that Heaven looks at life from a different view- point. Heaven sees life through God's eyes. and God's eyes are always the eyes of love. When I open a door for someone, share a smile with a stranger, and laugh with my children, then I know that I am glowing bright. When I stop to help another, pass on a kind word. and do a loving act, then I know that I am shining in Heaven's sight. I. have come to learn, too, that it is these shining moments that make up our lives here. Whefi we finally meet God face to face we aren't going to be asked how many touchdowns we scored, but rather how many lives we touched. May all of your moments here shine with joy. May you glow with Heaven's goodness and light every single day. And may your entire life be a touch- down of love in God's eyes. Joe Mazzella is a GSC alumness and Nicholas Co. Freelancer. Governor Will Propose Legislation to Ensure West Virginians Benefit From Power Line Governor Joe Manchin said that he will introduce legislation to ensure that West Virginians receive direct benefits from the construction and operation of a 500-kilovoll electric transmission line that the West Vir- ginia Public Service Commission ap- proved. "If the Trans-Allegheny Interstate Line (TRAIL) gets through its other required regulatory approvals and moves forward, we want to have laws in place so that the West girginians and communities that are affected re- ceive benefits in exchange." Manchin said. "We understand that some groups may appeal the PSC decision: and if they do, we'll let the legal pro- cess run its course. This legislation would be in place to address this project if it reaches completion, or any future project of its type. The governor met with county offi- cials from some of the counties that would be affected by the line. to brief them on his plan. "I want to make it clear now. re- gardless of if and when the transmis- sion line moves forward, that we are putting the req uirements on paper so that it is clear what our communities and citizens will receive." The PSC approved the certificate requested by the Trans-Allegheny Interstate Line Company to construct the 500kv interstate transmission line that would run through portions of Grant, Hardy, Hampshire. Marion, Monongalia, Preston, Taylor and Tucker Counties. While the PSC's approval includes significant condi- tions, including paying for portions of electric bills for directly-affected prop- erty owners, creation of jobs and con- struction of a new office in West Virginia, the governor has been {nsis- tent that other requirements be made into law. The governor's pian includes three main components: 1) Rate reductions for West Virginia's citizens, so that they will pay less. not more. for the power they receive from the line; 2) Extra revenue for the counties that house the line: 3) Extra revenue for the state, that will allow it to provide additional services to all its citizens. The governor has spoken with Sen- ate President Earl Ray Tomblin and House Speaker Rick Thompson; and all three plan to join together in pro- posing this effort to make sure West Virginians receive a direct benefit from having this power line in the state, the governor said. As the TRAIL project has moved through its regulatory approval pro- cess, Manchin has said he recognizes the national need for the transmission line, but that he did not want West Virginians to unfairly bear the cost of providing or transmitting electricity that is used outside the state. Also. while market conditions can affect consumer and industrial energy prices. the governor wants to make sure that West Virgima ratepayers will not see increases in their bills related specifi- cally to the construction and opera- tion of this transmission line. "I will not object to this power line if all parties agree to move forward with this legislation, which will make sure that West Virginians benefit from the placement of this line," the gover- nor said.
