The instructor discussed the manufactured materials used to build many homes today. These materials lose" strength quickly once they start burning and cause the structure to collapse earlier during a fire compared to older homes built with solid wood framing. In the event of a fire the most im- portant priority is for you and your family to get out of the house as soon as possible. Modern furnishings with fabrics made from petroleum based products burn much faster than the wool, cot- ton and silks once used in homes. Tests have shown that everything in a room with modern materials will be on fire in less than four minutes. In a room without any petroleum based products it may take more than an hour before everything s on fire. The instructor called modern mate- rmls solidified gasoline. These include the fabrics, the foam seat cushions on furniture and the carpets made from recycled plastic bottles. Carbon monoxide is released when they burn along with a form of cya- nide that can cause quick death. Be- cause house fires today burn hotter and faster than those in previous times, smoke detectors are more important than ever. Consider all possibilities when plan- ning how to get out of your home in case of a fire. During a house fire near Morgantown the mother escaped out the back door. The two sons escaped by going out windows. The father died when he tried to go out the front door which he always used. Don't let habit decide whether you live or die. Remember, do not go back into a burning house. Talk to your family about where to meet outside so you know everyone is safe. Pick a place that is away from areas that smoke might reach. A home fire is always a tragedy. Don't make the outcome worse by going back inside. While you may see the smoke that Can kill, you won't see the deadly gases that end your life. Help the American Red Cross Save the Day- Donate Blood Every two seconds someone in this country needs blood. These needs continue day and night, and not just during the cold winter or hot summer months. The American Red Cross asks: Will you help save the day? According to John Hagins, CEO of American Red Cross, Greater Alleghenies Blood Services, each weekday the 100-county Blood Ser- vices Region needs to have at least 1,000 blood donors to help meet the needs of patients in the hospitals served. All blood types are needed every day. "It doesn't matter if you are young or old, male or female, or what race you are, the Red Cross needs you to helpsave the day for patients needing blood transfusions," Hagins said. "There is no artificial blood or drug that can replace the blood or platelet donation made by a volunteer blood donor. Although medical personnel are highly trained and have access to the most modern equipment, when blood or platelet transfusions are needed, the supply comes from vol- unteer donors." He added that while 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to do- nate blood, less than 10 percent of those eligible do so annually. According to Hagins, trauma vic- tims, surgical patients and people be- ing treated for cancer are the biggest users of blood and blood products. A single car accident victim can require as many as 100 pints of blood. Cancer patients could receive daily transfusions of red blood cells and platelets while receiving chemo- therapy. There will be a Red Cross blood drive at Glenville Baptist Church, on Wed., May 9, from 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m. The church is located at 271 E. Main Street in Glenville, Area residents are urged to make a commitment to donate blood. All blood types are needed, but there has been a high demand for types O posi- tive, O negative and B negative and individuals who have those blood types are especially needed. The blood drive is sponsored by the Marthas and Marys of Gilmer County Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 in some states with a signed Pa- rental Consent Form), weigh at least 110 pounds and are generally in good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other do- nors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements. Eligible donors can call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733- 2767) or visit for more information and to make a blood donation appointment. Threatening Phone Calls WV Metro News The state Attorney General's Of- fice is trying to stop seven debt collec- tion agencies from doing business in West Virginia. Assistant Attorney General Nor- mal Googel says a lawsuit filed in Kanawha County this week is against companies that are not licensed in West Virginia. Googel says those representing the firms call state residents and threaten them. "They'll threaten them by saying, 'If you don't pay this debt by five o'clock today you're going to be ar- rested.' None of that is true and none of that is legal," G0ogel said The companies are able to dig up past debt information about residents. They tell them the money is owed immediately. "They get as much money as they can from people who pay because they are scared even when they know it' s not even their debt or it's debt they paid years ago," Googel said. The Attorney General's Office has received a number of complaints and * ..

P/c/z/red/eft to r/.ahL (front row)senior Carol Belknap of Gassaway, sophomore Ryan Spangenberg of Madison, OH, former member Trish Cottrill of Glenville, (backrow) freshman Robbie Mann of Berkeley Springs, freshman Laiker Boyd of Cameron, freshman Jordan Young of'Beckley, freshman Toni Doman of Cameron and sophomore Richie Jones of Alum Bridge. GSC Bluegrass Band to Record CD The ever expanding list of accom- plishments by the members of the Glenville State College Bluegrass Band will soon include their very own CD. Around twenty current and former members of the band will travel to meet in Tennessee briefly after gradu- ation to record their first CD at the studios of Blue Circle Records owned by the legendary song writer and singer Tom. T. Hall and his wife Dixie. The group will stop in Auburn, KY on Fri. and Sat., May 18 and 19 to perform at a bluegrass festival. They will arrive in Nashville on Sun., May 20 for a tour of Music City. The band will spend the next three days record- ing at Blue Circle Records in Franklin, TN, just outside of Nashville. GSC freshman Laiken Boyd of Cameron, WV came to Glenville State College because of the bluegrass music program. She plays fiddle, gui- tar, bass and sings for the GSC Blue- grass Band. "I have really enjoyed my first year at GSC. I am looking forward to the new challenges and experiences that our recording sessions will present us," she said. The Halls are providing studio time and engineering service at no cost to the GSC Bluegrass Band. GSC Alum Rebekha Long, the first graduate of the GSC Bluegrass Music Degree Program, works for Blue Circle Records as a studio engineer and graphic designer and will be working on the project. The band will have to pay to have the CDs produced and designed. The band has worked extremely hard this year to save money for this exciting project. "Part of the history of our Blue- grass Program has been to perform and learn from some of the legendary people in the industry. This amazing opportunity to work with the Halls will add to the prestige of the GSC Bluegrass Program. It will also serve as a good transition for me taking over the program from the wonderful job that retiring Buddy Griffin has done," said Megan Darby, Director of the GSC Bluegrass Degree Program. The CD will include two original Tom T. and Dixie Hall songs as well as traditional bluegrass from Lester Flatt, the late Earl Scruggs, the Carter Family, Jimmy Martin and others. CDs should be available for purchase at the annual GSC Bluegrass Band Concert on Tue., Oct. 23, 2012. This will be an expensive endeavor for the bluegrass band. Any donations from the GSC community for this project will be greatly appreciated. Anyone who would like to make a monetary donation or provide food and snacks for the trip should contact Darby at Me gan.Darby @ g or call 304-462-6347. WV's Childhood Sharon Lansdale, CEO for the Cen- ter for Rural Health Development Receives Prestigious New Award In recognition of National Infant Immunization Week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the CDC Foundation and the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources are honoring immunization advocates around the country with the first ever CDC Child- hood Immunization Champion awards. This award acknowledges individu- als who have made immunization suc- cesses possible in their community, including Sharon Lansdale. CEO for the Center for Rural Health Develop- ment in Hurricane, WV. "These Champion awards honor community leaders on the front lines who are ensuring that all children are Immunization Champion Recognized vaccinated," said Dr. Howard K. Koh, Assistant Secretary for Health, U. S. Department of Health and Human Services. "As a former state commissioner of public health, I know that state and local commitment inspires the nation, protects children and saves lives." Lansdale's work with community health centers in the state provided her inspiration to mtiate, in conjunc- tion with the West Virginia Immuni- zation Network (WIN), the Take Your Best Shot statewide immunization awareness campaign targeting ado- lescent immunization. The Take Your Best Shot campaign started in 7 coun- ties and has now been initiated in 38 counties throughout the state. DHHR's Division of Immuniza- tion Services Director Jeff Neccuzi said, "Sharon is a true immunization champion. We are appreciative of the CDC for recognizing Sharon's con- tributions to the immunization of chil- dren in our state." Director of the CDC's National Center for Immunizatmn and Respi- ratory Diseases Dr. Anne Schuchat, said, "Vaccine-preventable diseases still circulate in the United States and elsewhere. Without the diligent ef- forts of our champions, these poten- tially deadly diseases would be an even greater threat to our nation's children. Each of us has the potential to be a champion by protecting children's health through immuniza- tion."

David Walker WV House of Delegates Calhoun-Clay-Gilmer 33rd District During these hard economic times of government cutbacks and budget shrinkage David Walker has worked hard to secure this district's funding and fought hard to collect additional money for the 33rd district's needs. This includes money from Community Participation Projects $288.000.00 and 2,450,000.00 from the budget, governor, House of Delegates and other sources.

After retiring from the Operating Engineers, my sights were and still set on serving everyone in this district by being a voice in Charleston that represents people within our district. I have alwa),s had an open door policy and encourage everyone to voice opinions or bring their needs to me.
