2 The Glenvflle Democrat/Pathfinder May . 1976 / / / Hope springs eternall Bits and Pieces by Chuck Cavallo First of all, I would like to take a few moments to congratulate those graduating from Gilmer County High School Friday, May 28. High school graduation signals the successful completion of a basic phase of life. The twelve years tlxe graduates have spent in school make up the base that they must build on. All the good and bad times, the hours of study, the final exams will now pay off. It is a time to reflect on what has been learned and what one will do with it. Also, many thanks to the teachers who have worked so hard to help mold these young people into solid, intelligent young people with a future. OOOOOOOOOOOOO0 Congratulations and Good Luck to the Class of '76. "k*** Soon the tempo of life will begin to pick up as the Folk Festival draws near. This year's program promises to be one of the best yet. The Folk Festival this year will be June 17-18-19. The following is a poem I received from Mrs. Winifred Yancey of Troy. The poem was written by her granddaughter, Kim Yancey, of Ravenna, Ohio. It is representative of the wonderful mystique our state and its people have over visitors and the lure it maintains over those who have since moved away.

Tips for the Home Gardener...Usiq Fuqicides Out of the many fungicides and chemicals on the market, how does the home gardener, whose knowledge of these materials may be sketchy, choose the right product for a plant disease, insect, or pest problem? Dr. Jack Baniecki, Extension plant pathology and entomology specialist, West Vriginia University, stresses these points in the following product list: SULFUR: Sulfur fungicides are found as dusts, wettable powders, and in some combination (insecticide-fung- icide} products. They are widely labeled on fruits, vegetables, and ornamentals. Generally, they are labeled only for control of powdery mildews, rusts, and some leaf spots. They are very safe for users, but may cause some leaf burn, especially in hot weather. THE FIXED COPPERS: As a group, these fungicides are extremely useful. However, it is difficult to Fred any single copper fungicide with a great many uses listed on its label. Copper fungicide as bordeaux mixture is probably the most useful of the fixed coppers for home gardeners. It is usually labeled for leaf spots and blights, anthracnose, and downy mildews. Basic copper sulfate is also widely labeled. However, there have not been many small packaged formulation of this fungicide. Copper fungicides are of moderate effective- ness and are safe to the users. They may corrode spray equipment, should not be mixed with other pesticides, will leave a heavy residue, and may injure nlants in cool weather. THE CARBAMATES: These fungi- cides are usually of greater effectiveness and are easier to use ,than the sulfurs or fLxed coppers. The most effective and safe carbamate fungicide available to home gardeners may be the due km-moneb complex [FORE]. It is not as widely labeled as some of the others. However, it has labels in the turf, fruit, vegetables and ornamentals areas. Other carbamates to be considered would be zineh {for rust diseases) and manob (for many vegetable and ornamental diseases}. The carbamates provide good control of most leaf spots, rusts, downy mildews, and fruit rots or spots. They can be combined with most other spray materials. CAFTAN: Captan is a good general fungicide with a moderately broad crop label on trees, vegetables and ornamentals. It is labeled as a pre- plant soil treatment and seed treatment for many crops. diseases, as to Capta'n is portion of s Captan will mildews.

The special grant can be applied toward a new home or used to remodel an existing dwelling, VA Regional Office Director Sam A. Tiano said. It can also be used to help pay off the balance owing on a home the veteran has modified at his own expense, Tiano added. Under the law, eligible veterans may receive a grant of not more than 50 percent of the cost of a specially adapted home up to the maximum of $25,000. Veterans are eligible only if they have suffered permanent and total service-connected disability due to the loss (or loss of use) of both legs: blindness, plus loss of use of one leg: or other injury which prevents them from moving from place to place without the aid of a wheelchair, braces. crutches or canes. Disabled veterans should consult their nearest VA office for more detailed eligibility requirements, Tiano cautioned. The law governing the "wheel- chair homes" specifies that the veteran must be able to afford purchase of the housing unit, with the grant assistance, and it must be medically feasible for the veteran to Wednesday, June 9 - Read-O-Rama Book Express at the Normantown Grade School from 1-3 p.m. Wednesday, June 9 - Read-O-Rama Book Express on Main Street in Glenville from 4-7 p.m. and on Thursday, June 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 ili!ii!i:i:i ::i;iiiliii!iili!:!! p.m. 00iBy Eye Vi t % o !

In areas where burglaries have been espe- lly rampent, police have trained private citizens and organized civilian patrols. They are not vigilante groups, police emphasize. Rather, the citizens patrol their neighborhoods un- armed, and report av'" sus- picious happenings  the police. "We have had burglars tell us they will not go into an area where they know there is a citizen patrol," claims the director of the National Sheriff's Wachiation Neighborhood program. There are, of course, some persons who feel pri- vate citizens should not be organized into such pa. trois. Those critics say that such patrols are an inva- sion of privacy, ard could lead to citizens taking the law into their own hands. Yet, the fast remains that the police and sheriffs began organizing the citi- zen patrols precisely to prevent s uch potential chances of any sort of mob violence. And there seems to be no doubt that the police need all the help they can get in combatting bur- glaries. In the last five years. burglaries nationwide have increased by 53 percent, to the point where a burglary occurs at the rate of every 10 seconds today. The an- nual cost to victims is $1.2 billion, w i t h residential losses alone amounting to $758 million a year. The Law Enforcement Assistance Administration and the National Sheriffs Association have reason to be pleased with the suc- cess of their program thus far---but officials in those organizations are the first to admit the limited nature of that success, In the final analysis, officials say, the best way to check the rising rate of burglaries is for neighbors to once again begin caring about neighbors. We are i n d e ed ou "brothers' keeper." reside there. To qualify for the grant, the housing unit must have at least two wheelchair ramps located so as to avoid firehazards, doorways at least 36 inches wide, hallways of at least 49 inches width, specially equipped' bathrooms, specially located electric switches and outlets, an automatic smoke detector, and other features. VA specialists are available to assist eligible veterans in such steps as choosing a suitable lot for the housing unit, obtaining the services of an architect, obtaining construction bids and arranging necessary financing. The VA reminded interested veterans that some states provide special tax relief for owners of the so-called "wheelchair homes" and that up to $30,000 life insurance is available to most veterans who receive the special housing grant to pay off the mortgage on such a home in the event of the veteran's death.
