"Bushes had grown over the lower part of the memorial and it couldn't be read," he recalls. He credits a Folk Festival kettlecom vendor, Tony Clossen, of Anmoore, for helping to raise the money to refurbish the monument and its site. Also, Alcon manufacturing of Buckhannon supplied the stone foundation materials, while Kenny Greenlief, of Flying "W" Plastics, provided the forklift to move the new stones up to the site in front of the Courthouse. Dave Hess was the volunteer stone mason, Mr. Woodford adds. The local VFW is proud to take care of this monument and its flags, he further states, adding that Glenville contractor, Jack Moore, donated a new set of flags. Now that the weather is getting warmer and the ground, firmer, the general public is invited to visit the newly revitalized Veterans War Memorial Monument site. It is a stately place which adds much beauty and peace to Gilmer County's environment, he says in conclusion.

It is a chronic disease of the central nervous system affecting the brain and spinal cord. One new case of MS is diag- nosed every hour. It comes and goes unpredictably, leaving people to wonder,"Will I become paralyzed, blind or have trouble walking? Will I be able to raise my family and con- tinue my career?" Thanks to significant advances in research, the FDA has approved sev- eral treatments that may alter the un- derlying disease course of multiple sclerosis, and early treatment is criti- cally important. People with MS should consult their doctors about using one of these FDA-approved medications and other effective treat- ments for the symptoms of MS. If you or someone you know has MS, con- tact the National Multiple Sclerosis Society at 1-800-FIGHT MS or nationalmssocieO'.org/wvt.
