I got this email earlier and the writer is adamant about the Open-Toed Shoe Pledge, which I quote: "Alright, ladies, it's that time of year once again !!! I think we need to be reminded of a few things. So my sisters, PLEASE, raise your big toes and repeat after me The Open Toed Shoe Pledge: As a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood, I pledge to fol- low the Rules when wearing sandals and other open-toed shoes: I promise to alwa} s wear sandals that fit.

I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes swell and begin to look like Vienna sausages. I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend/sis- ter/coworker when she asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear sandals. Some- one has to tell her that her toes are as long as my fingers, and no sandal makes creepy feet look good. I will promise ifI wear flip flops that I will ensure that they actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while walking, and I will swear NOT to slide or drag my feet while wearing them. I will promise to go to my local nail salon at least once per season and have a real pedicure (they are about $20 or $25 and worth EVERY penny). I will promise to throw away any white/off-white san- dals that show signs of wear.., nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals." Maranatha! President Approves Federal Disaster Declaration for Mingo, Wyoming Counties Governor Joe Manchin and state emergency management officials re- ceived word that President Obama has approved the governor's request for a federal disaster declaration for southern West Virginia. following severe storms, flooding, mudslides and landslides that occurred last week- end. This designation enables federal funding and personnel to be allocated to the flood-ravaged areas to assist with cleanup efforts and to provide additional assistance to those who were directly affected by the flooding and storms. Manchin said he applauds the Presi- dent and Homeland Security Sec. Janet Napolitano for the quick action on the disaster request, and for the strong support from the state's congressional delegation for expediting the declara- tion. "Senator Byrd. Senator Rockefeller and Congressman Rahall have all been working hard with us to ensure that the families of southern West Vir- ginia are able to get the additional help they need," Manchin said. "This is a coordinated effort on all fronts, in the flood zone. in Charleston and in Washington. to make this recovery as quick as possible. With the federal declaration, we have more tools and funding to get our residents' lives back in order.", ,~ The initial declaration covers Mingo and Wyoming counties, but other ar- eas can be added, as damage assess- ments and the recovery process con- tinues. Mingo and Wyomingcounties were most affected by last week's flooding, and the damage in those counties alone is enough to warrant federal assistance, said state Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management Director Jimmy Gianato.

Barr has been appointed to chair the P-20 Collaborative Task Force by Brian Noland. Chancellor of the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission. In his charge, Chancellor Noland asked the P-20 Collaborative Task Force to focus on 'improving the preparation, retention, and develop- ment of professional educators at all levels and promoting a seamless edu- cation system connecting all levels of learning." Barr said. "Clearly, this is a daunt- ing charge, but also one that reso- nates. I think few would argue with the view that P-20 education is frag- mented, lacking a predictable umty, and needlessly complex. " The task force shall include a broad representation of elementary, middle, high school, college, and university educators. With greater collaboration across the state's educational system, all edu- cation institutions will benefit MRS. ALMA BRADY, BEING PRESENTED WITH SERVICE PLAQUE FROM N.E.S.
