Due to the cooperation received from the West Central West Virginia Community Action Association and the hard work of the Gilmer County Community Action Association, several services have recently been implemented or expanded in the county. Among these is the Gardening Program. This program is designed to furnish qualified families with the necessary plants, seeds, garden imple- ments, fertilizer, pesticides and canning supplies enabling them to raise gardens and better meet individual needs. In 1975, 26 families in the county received services under this program. This year, 82 families are reaping the rewards of the program. A relatively new program, the Emergency Energy Conservation Program (EECP), is underway. It recently received funding. It is designed to winterize and insulate homes of county residents. Intended to aleviate the increasing costs of utilities, the program is geared for those on fixed incomes, such as the elderly. To date. 24 homes have been completed in Gilmer County, amounting to $5000 in additional funding. The West Central office recently announced that Gilmer and Calhoun counties will receive the necessary funding to purchase equipment to install 'Blow-in' insulation in conjunction with EECP. The 1976 Gilmer County Youth Opportunity Camp recently received $4,065. Screening of applicants is complete and the camp is scheduled for July 5-9. The camp is operated cooperatively by the Gilmer County CAA, County board of education, Glenville State College. Department of Welfare and the County Extension Office. Finally, The Gilmer County Nutrition Site, located in theenior Citizens Cen tsr : ,, in Glenville, is operating with an average of 36 meals per day. One year ago, it averaged 12 meals per day. The meals are served Monday through Thursday and a nutrition bus continues to serve the county's outlying communities. As an added note, the Gilmer County Senior Citizens group have boosted their membership to 647 persons. Both associations and their members deserve recognition for the fine work they are doing and the programs they are running.

ARNOLD PRESIDENT/PUBLIsHER CHUCK CAVALLO EDITOR LAYNE OFFICE Tfpo In all the celebrations, festivities, a n d parades planned for the nation's Bicentennial, we should not overlook another event which also took place in 1776 and played a very important role in the fu- ture welfare of our coun- try. In March, 1776, just four months before the na- tion's founders signed the Declaration of Independ- ence, the Scottish philoso- pher Adam Smith published his famous book, The Wealth of Nations, which outlined the theory of free enterprise from which cap- italism evolved. In many ways, The Wealth of Nations and our Declaration of Independ- ence are companions. Both were revolutionary docu- ments published in 1776 and both were written against the tyranny of the state. The Wealth of Na- "ions was written to pro- test the British mercantile system which entrapped the workers with low wages, poor conditions, and limited opportunities. Smith promoted the vir- tues of a free enterprise system in which the mar- ketplace--rather than the government--would be the determining factor. He said that more could be accomplished with private enterprise, and men and women would be free to determine their own des- tiny. Hundred Years el Free Enterprise Observing the British, Smith wrote about the dangers of a planned econ- omy where the government sets the conditions of la- bor, wages, and priel Under such system.-, we readily see by observing the communist nations-- the workers, society and the nation all suffer. Capi- talism, on the other hand. allows the individual and society to benefit by their own devices while the na- tion's economy prospers. But Smith did not to- tally rule out the role government. He said that the government was better able to handle broad re- sponsibilitieslike national defense, justice, and public works. He saw best that a fine line had to he drawn between the government and private enterprise. Many of Adam Smith's thoughts ar Just as ally today as they were 200 years ago. It is encourag- ing to know that, Just as America has been able to live under the guiding principles of the Declara- tion of Independence, the nation has prospered, thanks to the wisdom of this Scottish philosopher. And, at a time when capitalism is under attack abroad and its merits ques- tioned at home, we should not forget that independ- ence and free enterprise go hand in hand--Just as they did in 1776.
