Easter well-wishes As I was living out my delusions at home, Easter Sunday weekend was very sunny and beautiful outside.'Ilaat prompted me to take a couple of walks each day, on Saturday in-between watching my Kentucky Wildcats go down in defeat to Wisconsin's Bad- gers and the Michigan State's loss to Duke's Blue Devils. On Monday, Duke won it "all. In my Spencer NCAA Bracket Poll, I'd picked three of the four teams in the finals, so I felt pretty confident of winning it, if my Univ. of Kentucky could just get past Wiscon- sin in the semifinals. But, after watch- ing parts of the final ganae on Monday night,it's doubtful that U. of K. would have won; although being unbeaten, the Wildcats' schedule was not as tough as that of the other finalists. Last year, I lost the pool by four points, coming in second; this year I ended up about 10th. Next year, I'll win it all, though. (Here I go again, making those blanket assertions'?) My Faster Sunday, itself, was made happier by being with fine son, Dave Jr., for church services and a lun- cheon afterwards. A father-son kin- ship! nately, I was at work later in the day on Sunday, so wasn't home. Never- theless, they did phone me at work Monday, and we had a most pleasant conversation. Their question was did I get their Easter Card'? Yes, I did. It brought tears to my eyes, after reading it: "It's a lovely world at Easter, and what helps to make it so, Are thoughts of all the people who are extra nice to know .... ""For it makes the day more joyous and the season brighter, too, Just to send some happy wishes to a special friend like you. "Have a nice Easter and a Wonder- ful Spring." My, this couple is so nice, and I'm fortunate to be numbered among their friends. Thanks, Gary and Iva!

Also during that next weekend, the First Annual Central West Virginia Toughman's Championship will be decided at the Waco Center -- an- other first for Waco.

Several local gents will be participating, including Wes Hansen, Tyler Cottreil and Mike Snyder, all undefeated. This takes the place of the old "Rumble on the Hill," although Promoter Jerry Tho- mas, of Clarksburg, is still relying a lot on Glenville's Leon Ramsey, of the Dawghouse Gym. See the related ad on the back page! They should be two great nights of fights, excitement and showmanship for our local box- ers, who will be competing with the best in the state. Reminders for this weekend Back to this weekend: Don't forget that Charlie and Ashley Smith, of Gilmer County, are trying to raise an additional $5,000, as part of a down- payment on obtaining an adopted baby. Adoptions are expensive and complicated these days. They've al- ready had a fund-raiser or two, and I admire their determination to have a baby of their own in spite of the ob- stacles, both financially and red tape- wise. To save a child through adoption is a fulfilling and humanitarian act. Many of these adopted children have already had a hard time in their early lives, soto adopt one is avery kind and loving action. Although most of the money for the Smith's adoption is confing out of their own pockets, tiffs young couple still needs a bit more financial help, of which they've confided to this com- munity because of their belief in our kindness, understanding and gener- osity. They and their friends are spon- soring a BBQ Adoption Dinner Party at 11 a.m. on this Sun., Apr. 12 at the Gienville Fire Station. Help them, encourage them and ' meet them, while eating a delicious BBQ lnnch and donating to their wor- thy cause, if you can! If you can't physically make it, send your fanfily and neighbors to enjoy this festive occasion. Mel, vm Wine M em0rml , , The late Melvin Wine, the legend- ary fiddler at the West Virginia State Folk Festival, hasn t been forgotten. Noted square dance caller-nmsician Gerry Milnes will be the emcee for a Melvin Wine Memorial Concert at 7 p.m. on next Sat., Apr. 18 at the Landmark Studio of the Arts in downtown Sutton. This event is open to anyone, espe- cially those who knew Melvin, to play their instruments or to sing. Just come to the studio in the old church at 6 p.m. to sign up for the program. And, for the audience, it's time to warm up for this year's 2015 Folk Festival, so this Melvin Wine Memo- rial is very appropriate for .that. Hist'i Society's News &. Hours The Gilmer County Historical So- ciety and Holt House Museum will be sponsoring a Book Review activ- ity on this Fri.-Sat., Apr. 10--11, ac- cording to Dot Frey, our Society's Librarian -Treasurer.

GOD OF TH E HILLS AND THE VALLEYS [ I I I In the Old Testament, the enemies of God's people made a serious 1 mistake. Having lost a battle against the Israelites, the advisors to the king I I of Syria said, "Their gods are gods of the hills: therefore they were stronger i than we; but let us fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be I stronger than they" (I Kings 20:23). When they were ready to attack God's I people using their new strategy, God had a surprise in store for them: "And I there came a man of God, and spoke unto the king of Israel, and said, Thus I I saith the Lord, Because the Syrians have said, The Lord is god of the hills, I I but he is not God of the valleys, therefore will I deliver all this .great I I multitude into thine hand, and ye shall know that I am the LORD" (I Kings I I 20:28). I I The Syrians had the idea that God was a "territorial" God, that He was I I restricted in His ability to deliver His people. They thought that their God I I was only a God of the hills, but God wants us to know that He is the God of I I the hill, the plains, and the valleys! I I I I How many of us feel that Way today? We, believe that God is with us I through the good times in life, but when things 'turn sour ', we often do, too, I and Heel that God has abandoned us. Figuratively speaking, the hills I I represent the high points in our lives, the mount-top experiences, the times I I when we feel like we're on top of the world. The valleys represent the low I I times, the difficult times, the challenging times. Make no mistake, God is I with us through the hills and valleys of life. ! | ' David was a shepherd and in Psalms 23 it says, "Thou art with me." Here,  the sheep turn their eyes away from the dangers and to the shepherd. If sheep I are in danger, their safety is found in the shepherd. "Thy rod and thy staff they I comfort me. ' In the hands of a shepherd who loves you so much that he is I 1 prepared to give his life for you, you' re safe. "the Lord is my shepherd, I shall I I not want." He gives you everything youneed "Though I walk through the I I valley of the Shadow of Death.", whether this :is the whole of our pathway | I or with the circumstances Of death itself, safety is found in Him who is the | I Shepherd, the God of the valley. To the faithful child of God, those times I :may seem insurmountable, but don't give up because things will get better! I I God is a God.of the valleys, too!
