Ruth McClary When Sgt. Jeremy Brown. of Glen- ville, was involuntarily recalled to deploy to Iraq this year, it quickly became a family affair. Both his brothers, Sgt. David Brown, also of Glenville. and S pc. Poleman Brown, of Buckhannon. vol- unteered to deploy, too. This is the second "group" Iraq deployment for the three brothers. who are assigned to Company D. 230th Brigade Support Battalion, 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team. "We don't get lonely or homesick quite as much when we deploy to- gether," said Jerem y. the oldest of the three. They are the onty children of David and Judith Brown of Glenville. "Morn has gotten used to it. but I don't think she likes it .very much." sail Jeremy. "Dad is proud of us. He would like for one or two of us to go, but not all three at one time." In 2005. the three volunteered for a tour in Iraq with the West Virginia Army National Guard' s 1257th Trans- portation Company of Huntington. They were split into different pla- toons, but they visited each other regu- larly. This time, they live and work closer to each other. Jeremy and Poleman, the middle son, work together in the supply section, and David, the young- est, repairs vehicles at Camp Stryker, near Baghdad. "We are the distribution platoon: we supply everything except ammu- held at a different spot this year! A pot-luck lunch will be served at ' 12 noon at the pavilion, on Sunday, August 2. 2009. Call all your relatives: sons, daugh- ters. in-laws and outlaws, uncles and aunts, nieces and nephews. Remind them that the history of the Wine ONE OF THE BROWN BROTHERS IN IRAQ nition and fuel," said Jeremy. "As the supply sergeant. I am Poleman' s boss: I actually expect more out of him because he is my brother." While the three have jobs on the camp, they also do missions off the base. "'It's not as dangerous as people think because they [leadership] sepa- rate us when we go on missions," said Jeremy. "Going on a mission is an adrena- line rush," said Jeremy. "It's why w e are here and what we get paid to do." This is Jeremy's fourth overseas tour, David's third, and Poleman's second. All three brothers plan to re- main m the military until they retire. David needs at least 10 more years of service, Jeremy needs 12, and Poleman needs 14. "Little brother outranks them both and will retire first," said David about himself. All agreed that if. in the future, one of the three were called to deploy again, the other two would be there with him. "I tend to watch over the other two because I should; after all, I am the oldest," said Jeremy. "At the same time. I know ifI need them, they will be there, no q uestions asked."

By: Lavonne Childers Minigh A few weeks ago, I proceeded to see what was causing such a commo- non among my summer birds on my patio. Assuming that it might be a snake. I went prepared: but to my amazement, up on the rafters under the roof sat this little owl with large eyes staring at me and not moving even a gray and white feather! After watching this beautiful visi- tor, my husband and I decided to take PROPER DISTRUCTION OF SPECIAL EDUCATION RECORDS ANNOUNCED Notification Deadline, January 1, 2010 Policy 4350 is based on requirements of federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), as amended Requirements specific to records of identified exceptional students are incorporated into the policy.

While trying to show our kids where the owls were sitting, and to take more pictures; someone said, "There's not two, but three owls!" So. there sitting all in a row were three; prob- ably, siblings, or perhaps the parents of a young owl. The three little owls weren't afraid and occupied this place for four or five days, then moving to the back of thhouse in the Westeria vines stayed about the same length of time. A11 the while, we took pictures: and not a word did any of them say! They were not afraid! I guess they just didn't give a HOOT! Then they went away!
