lage 6B -- The "Gienville l)emocrat/Pathfinder -- Thursday, March 12, 2009 Around The Kitchen Table Get aldine M arks 46?_.-7477 THE "BUD" AND "MATT" ALLEN FAMILY It&apos;s Gardening Time for Cool Season Veggies This picture was taken sometime before the death of Aunt Matt in 1958. In the front row is Martha (Cottrill) Aunt "Matt" Allen, wife of Richard Marcellis Uncle "Bud" Allen. In the second row are Ella (Allen) Marks, Daisy (Allen) Deulley, and Viola (Allen) Stump Fitzwater; and in the back row are Harper Allen and Curtis Allen. Uncle Bud was my grandpa, Flemming Allen's, older brother. One son, Emery, is missing in this picture. Uncle Bud and Aunt Matt lived on Upper Two Run, where the Chapperall Camp is now located. Thanks, Vonda and Olive, daughters of Harper, for this picture. I recently got a nice call from Norma Fisher, of Ohio. Her husband was Sherman Fisher, a son of Bert and Katie Fisher. Sherman grew up on Crooked Fork. Norma said she really appreciated the Fisher family infor- mation in my February 19 column. I also got another nice call from David BeaN's daughter, Angle, who lives in Gassaway. She said she en- joyed the picture of her home church, the Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church, in Grafton, OH. She said several of the students in the Cub Fork One Room School 1940s picture attended the Grafton Church with her when she was growing up. It is gardening time, as soon as the ground warms up a little. It is time to plant lettuce, cabbage, onion, peas, carrots, parsnips, spinach, beets, po- tatoes, broccoli and all our cool sea- son vegetables. Gall Miller recently celebrated his 99th birthday. This is the story I wrote on his card: In 1949, Gall was teaching school at Oak Grove. We lived on the Briar Lick side of the Oak Grove Hill. It was the dead of winter, maybe February. The roads were deeply rutted and could only be trav- eled by Jeeps and trucks. Daughter Jo Ann was about ten months old and got very sick with the croup. Our car wouldn't go over the hill, so Ralph went up to school, borrowed Gail's Jeep, drove to Glenville and brought Dr. Smith to our house. Dr. Smith and Ralph could hear Jo Ann breathing when they crossed the creek in front of our house. Dr. Smith said he had never heard of anyone dying with the croup, but that Jo Ann probably had the worst case of croup he ever saw. Dr. Smith gave us some medicine, and Jo Ann got better. We never had another bad case of croup with any of our seven children. Ralph took Dr. Smith back to Glen- ville and got Gail's Jeep back before the end of the school day. The Oak Grove Baptist Church is starting a revival on March 15; every- one is welcome. Please come and worship with us. From the Front Porch: Troy News Lori Rosenburg 462-4398 Help Me Report the Troy Happenings After much thought, I felt Troy needed to have a little recognition in the weekly paper, so I thought I would give it a try. I am a transplant out of Lakeland, FL. My husband, Jason, and I moved to Troy almost five years ago. I have a son, Cary, 17, who is a junior at GCHS. Jason has two children: Am- ber, 16 and Jason, 14. They live in Montana, but they come out to visit every summer. Jason is currently working as a military contractor for the Marines in Fallujah, Iraq, and I am a part-time student at GSC. Troy is such a nice little community, and we are glad to be a part of it. On March 7, there was a brush fire in the area. The Troy VFD was suc- cessful in extinguishing it; thanks, guys. It's starting to warm up, and people around town are working hard to get their gardens ready for spring plant- ing. The deer are out like crazy, so be careful driving around here at night. My step father, Lewis Flesher, also a resident of Troy, said he heard the spring peepers (frogs) this weekend. The birds are starting to make nests, and the wild onions are popping up. The first day of spring, March 20, is just around the corner, and it's some- thing that most of us are looking for- ward to. I hope everyone has a sate and wonderful week. If you have any Troy news or information to share, please feel free to call. If I am not home, please leave a message.

The program is designed to serve adults who, because of physi- cal, mental or emotional limitations, are unable to live independently in their own home. Adult Family Care offers elderly or disabled persons who need or desire the care, support and security of fam- ily living, and the opportunity to live in a family setting. The Adult Family Care Program is looking for responsible, mature and caring adults who would be willing to give an adult who cannot live on his or her own a stable home. The rate of payment towards the provider is now $879.90 per month, per client. This is a very rewarding endeavor for some- one who truly cares about others who are less fortunate.

State Senate #::E:;, ='ii Day-b:00.Day Activities Interesting The first Regular Session of the 79th Legislature is in its fourth week and since this is my first session, I am still conforming to the day-to-day ac- tivities . I want to take this time to thank all of you who put your faith and trust in my ability for serving as your Senator. It is truly an honor to mechanisms and ideas need to be cre- ated. Bills are beginning to pass in the Senate where they will be communi- cated to the House for further consid- eration. One of those bills would give a circuit judge discretion to impose the original sentence on a youthful represent the 12th Senatorial District. offender Who < has successfully (:om- It is humbling, but also ahuge re-" pleted a youthful Offender 'traliling sponsibility for every member of the Legislature because we are in charge of making sure that our constituents and districts are fairly represented. I want all of you to know that although this is still a learning time for me, I am making sure that the t2th District is being fully represented. When I was sworn in on January 11, I was assigned to various Senate committees such as Economic Devel- opment, Finance, Military, Natural Resources, and Transportation and Infrastructure. I am also serving as Vice-Chair on the Energy, Industry, and Mining Committee. Various issues are coming before the Senate such as the Governor's plan to change the school calendar, surface owner's rights, and new en- ergy resources. The Legislature must also amend, if needed, and pass the Governor's budget bill. This is the most important bill that has to be passed before the end of the 60-day session. I have currently sponsored 12 bills. One of those bills would create a pilot program to allow the Division of High- ways to use innovative techniques for construction, maintenance and financ- ing of state highways. Innovation is what West Virginia needs to focus on during these difficult economic times. We can make it through, hut new program, but who has been charged with committing another crime be- tween his or her release from the youthful offender center and the sen- tencing hearing. For those of you who may be un- aware, each day the House and the Senate invite school children to serve as pages. If anyone is interested in their children or students serving as pages, please let me know. This gives our children a chance to see the Leg- islature up close and personal, while educating them at the same time. Those interested in following the day-to-day happenings with the leg- islative session can go to the Legislature's website at www.legis. state, wv. us. There you will find a daily blog as well as all bills that are being introduced. If you should have any questions or comments regarding any issues or on any other pieces of legislation when they come before the Legislature, feel free to contact me here at my Charles- ton office. To write me, my address is Senator Douglas Facemire, State Capitol, Building 1, Room 218-W, Charleston, WV 25305 or call me at (304) 357-7845. I encourage all my constituents to remain active and be- come part of the legislative process. By the way, when you are in Charles- ton, feel free to stop-in and see me. 00:Beltone FREE Hearing Test Set For Gilmer County BOB PHILLIS Owner/Hearing Instrument Specialist WHERE: Gilmer County Senior Center DATE: Wednesday, March 18, 2009 TIME: 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. PHONE: 1-800-303-3277 Beltone Hearing Instrument Center' 1200 Country Club Road - Fairmont, WV 26554  We Make House Calls ~ Accepting New Patients ON-SITE REPAIRS WHEN POSSIBLE West Virginia Workers' Compensation Provider Discounts at 2009 Beltone Electronics Corporation
