Your medical center dedicated to serve all those c()me to it in sickness and acci- dent." This evidently rel~'rs to a new Sut- Ion hospital that was built in 1948 or 1949. tn 1946. my tonsils were taken out in this Sutton Hosffital. I think I spent the night before the surgery in the hospital. My two sisters, Connie. born in 1944 and Caren, born in 1946, were born in this hospital. Connie was born two weeks before she was expected, and Dad had driven a truckload of lumber to market that day. We had an old car, but it was v, artime and parts were hard to get. The car lights and brakes were bad. Dad ,aasn't home, Eugene was 14 and Ha,'old was 12, both too young to dri ve Morn It)tire hospital. Neighbors Stella and Dewey Furby drove her to the hospital. We lived on Counts Ridge between Crooked Fork and O'Brian. To get to Sutton, they had to travel to Rosedale, Frametown and Gassaway. Morn said the road was blocked for a short time near the Rosedate Baptist Church. a fatal accident between Frametown and Gassaway held them up again, and Morn saM they had to wait on a tram at the lower end of Gassaway. She said "1 thought it was the longest train I ever saw." It was dark by the time Morn, Dewey and Stella got to Gassaway, so Dewey and Stella sent Morn by taxi to Sutton because there were no lights on the car. Dewey and Stella stayed in a Gassaway Hotel that night. Dad got home around nine o'clock " and went to Sutton to see about monl. He found that Connie had been born twenty nimutes after biota got to the hospital. A new hospital was built in Sutton around 1948 or 1949. Gary Harris in the Mid State Star states, "We were certainly proud of that shiny new hos- pital and many of us still refer to it as the 'old hospital' rather than the court- house annex," We found lots of information for Jim Collins 1942 servicemen project. Sandra Beall found the address of Wallace Herman Groves. He lives in Baltimore, Md. I sent the address to Jinl Collins and 1 expect he has al- ready contacted him. Clifford Reaser of Cedar Creek called with more information for Jim Collins. Mantel Clark James was Clifford's wife's uncle. Mantel Clark James grew' up abo~e Cedarvitle in a place that for obvious reasons ,,',as called James Towne. After tile war, his family moved to Weston arrd Mantel Clark got a job and moved to Elyria, Ohio. Clifford said, unfortu- nately, Mancel Clark passed away a few years ago. Clifford also has the address of some of James Goenhour's family. He is sending that inlormation to Jim. Sounds like Jim might be getting lots of information for his project. He still wonders if anyone knows where Paul Robert Goldsmidl lived in 1942. April showers bring May flowers, and we sure have had plenty of show- ers this week, but we really needed them. Lots of wildflowers are bloom- ins. I haven't been in the woods, but I've seen spring beauties, anemonies, coltsR~ot, dandelion and chickweed. Our fruit pears, cherry, peach, sarvice and redbud are all blooming. Dog- wood is about half-v,ay in bloom. We are now on daylight sa ing time. I did have long mornings, now it seems like we have long evenings. I heard about one family who got mixed up and set their clock back instead of lbrward and ruissed church last Sun- day. Charles and Linda Fisher were at our church last Sunday. Charles is our former pastor, and we were realb glad he was able to come back and fellowship with us. We hope his health continues to improve. Soon grass will be tall enough to turn our cows out on pasture. We have a lot of fence to repair before we can turn them out. We have one pretty new baby call'. We also have seven registered black angus heifers and four bulls for sale. They sure are pretty, - Ralph would have had trouble selling them. He always liked to keep them all.

Sa a_n_d Fork Cabbage SUTTON GENERAL HOSPITAL, INC., 1947 ormantown Students Support Troo_ INTERN PROJECTS - Students in grades K-6 at Norrfiantown Elementary are showing their support for American troops in Operation Iraqi Freedom by donating items for care packages. This project was initiated by Glenville State College student intern, Julie Heckert, as part of her student teaching experience at Normantown. Students donated over 500 items which will be delivered to Fort Bragg and then sent overseas to soldiers serving in Iraqi. Students also wrote letters expressing their appreciation, admiration, and support of our troops. Cherish forever what makes you unique, because you're really a yawn if it goes. --Bette Midler WHOSE WILL BE THE LARGEST? -,Giant cabbage plants are growing for the third graders of Sand Fork Elementary School. Bonnie Plant Farm representatives, of UniQn Springs, Ala. delivered garden- ready cabbage plants free of charge on March 31,2003. Each student also received a brochure full of gardening tips. This campaign is designed to share the love of gardening tips. The cabbage variety is O.S. Cross, which is a large hybrid that produces 15 to 40 pound heads on average. The third-graders are anxious to compare their gardening skills and successes with their plants. Whose will be the largest? We'll know later this summer! I have twelve hand made porch swings ready for sale Below is the listing of the sizes, finishes, wood type & styles. The prices range from $150 to $385. All swings have contured backs and bottoms. Also, all have magazine racks and cup holders.
