Page 12-- The Glenville I)emocrat Pat's Chat Thursday, August 13, 2009 Pat Ridpath. Burnsville 472-5102 or 888-294-5401 Garden's Bounty Enjoyed with the Fabulous Palm Spring Fol- lies - according to the AARP Bulle- tin, though she is 85 years old! Go to http://bulletin.aat7zorg/yourworhl/ a r t i c l e s / and watch a short video of this amaz- ing woman. It is not age that makes us "old" or "sick," but at least partially, these things must be caused by lack of ac- tivity. Have you heard about The Grati- tude Salute? It is a Way any of us can thank our military. Watch http:// w w w . y o u t u b e . c o m / watch ?v=MSfFYxSdKdo and learn to say thank you. Put your right hand over your heart and then bring it down, palm up, saying, "Thank you," when- ever you see military personnel. Greg Borstein sent me an email, wanting to find information about Julie Posey, of Burnsville. He writes, "I started my college career in 1966 and was wonderfully in love with Julie Posey, from Burnsville. I met the whole family on a road trip, which was memorable in those days. Julie and I stayed in touch, I would say through 1983 or 1984, and no one that I know has heard fi'om her since. She had remarried an airline capt. in the Pinellas Park, FL, area (last name was Yeltom). On Thursday afternoon, I came through Burnsville, stopped at the City Hall and asked around about her. I found out that both brothers are deceased, along with the parents, and that the sisters are fine. Everyone stated that if anyone knew anything about Julie, it would be you. I would therefore appreciate anything you may know about her. I have always been from Charleston and am in business here to this day (G.& K. Properties). Thank you in advance for any and all that you may be able to tell me. Greg Borstein." my nephew. Bruce Bucklew. called me from the Richmond. VA. area to tell me that he had pulled an "Aunt Patty!" His license is overdue lot renewal by a month. Mine was six months out of date! Bruce and my brother. Sammy Wiant. were here Saturday night, until early Sunday afternoon. They had gone to State College, PA. to pick up some glorious treasures from our brother. Harry Wiant. for his siblings. He will be driving across country with his grandson. Graham Tullett, to the Seattle area, where he will live about three miles from his daughter. Teresa. and her family. His grandsons. Gra- hain and Camden. will enjoy having him close by, I am sure. Sonny and Graham will spend one day vismng relatives in Buckhannon before going on their adven ture across the country. As they were sorting and packing for the move, Teresa came across a box that contained a pashmina/silk shawl she had given her mother many years ago, all tags and card intact. The tag explains that this shawl has been an indispensable accessory since "the mid 18th century. It is still seen as a mea- sure of grace and.prestige throughout the world. It is made with irnmense care and pride in India. Wear it with joy." Teresa said it was obviously not something that her mom liked! Luck- ily, she gave it to me! I didn't know what a pashmina was; now I own one. Let me tell you how to raise a gar- den: plant it and go away for six weeks. When I got back from KCMO, the garden was covered with so many bean vines that most of the weeds could not grow in it. I pulled the vines and got nearly half a bushel of beans, of which several pints and one gallon are now in my freezer. I have gotten a few ripe tomatoes, some new potatoes, thanks to a neighbor, Paul, who planted some for me, green peppers, green Gilmer Co. Vold teer Fire Death is tragic under any circum- stances, but it is the unthinkable when it involves children. My deepest sym- pathy goes to the Maxwell family, who lost eight-year-old Tyler Michael Maxwell. He collapsed at Little Pio- neer football practice on Monday evening and died on Tuesday, August 4, at CAMC. He was the son of Jeffrey and Shawna (Pierce) Max- well, of Glenville. No matter what the age of a parent, it is always sad to lose one of them. My friend, Kathy McCumbers of the Gassaway area, lost her mother, Gladys McCumbers, last week. Kathy and Gladys belong to the Braxton Seventh-day Adventist Church in Gassaway. I was so very sorry to hear of her death. May God bring comfort to Clyde, her husband, and to her children, grandchildren and great- grandchildren. Not long ago, I wrote about Robert Riffle, a cousin, who died. I am shocked that his brother, David, was killed last week! David, a graduate of Burnsville High School in the 1960s, was always so helpful when I needed help with an automobile problem. He helped others with their vehicles, too, charging hardly anything. David had wise parents, Kenneth and Olive (Sands) Riffle, who never let his sib- lings "baby" him because of his crutches. When they played tag or other games, David was on his own, very much a part of their fun. His sister, Dorothy Ramsey, says he had the reputation of being a prankster when he worked for the State Road. David had sold a piece of property in Orlando and had some men helping him move vehicles off the property. There were some problems, so he left to get his tractor from his daughter's home. When he didn't return, the men looked for him and found he had wrecked the tractor. Dorothy reports that because of where the tractor You may send your information to me, and I will forward it on to Greg. You can reach me at patschar ridpath41 @ gmail, corn, write to me at 42 1/2 South Florida Street, Buckhannon, WV 26201 or call me at 304-472-5102. Thank you. Letting one's driver's license ex- pire must be contagious. Someone else I talked to last week had an out- of-date license, and then this evening, onions, and maybe perhaps I will get some carrots. We have also enjoyed some fried green tomatoes from the garden. Before I left for KCMO, we .' had several salads from lettuce that has now gone to seed. Nothing tastes as good as produce fl'om one's garden or from our local Farmers' Market. Maranatha! Department's wrecked, they suspect he may have had a heart attack, which caused him to wreck. It would bring comfort if they could know that. His parents, two brothers, and his wile, Sue, pre- ceded him in death. A son and three daughters survive. I pray that God may comfort all of you. And yet, there are some who re- main active for many years.

Two-Lane Livin' magazine first ap- peared in September. 2007. with 10.000 copies delivered into ten coun- ties of the central West Virgmia re- gion. Now. the magazine has ex- panded to 15.000 copies circulated in 16 counties, with subscriptions going out to 14 different states. Free to read- ers in the region on a monthly basis. the magazine began with a collection of twelve local columnists, a number that has now risen to 23 Many of these columnists have never met. "'Since the beginning of the maga- zine. we have wanted to get the col- umnists together." said Lisa Minney, publisher. "They live in different coun- ties around the region, and man y have never met each other. In fact. there are a few I have never met in person. We have only communicated online. Oth- ers. I just don't see often enough." The public is invited to meet the columnists, following a private din- ner held to honor and thank the con- tributors. Many columnists will have displays of their other creative out- lets. including books, crafts and gar- den items. "Each of our writers has special skills, talents and knowledge. Our readers can meet and get to know them by talking with them and seeing samples of their other talents." Readers will have the opportunity to visit and talk to the columnis> Ic~i at least two hours, and they c:m hear more about the new features counn,~ out in the first issue of the ma mwmc- third year. The magazine will incIudc more full-color pages, as well as ~omc design changes for easier reading. "When we launched two years ago, we severely underestimated the popu- larity of the magazine in print and online." said Minney. "We need to make adjustments to meet thc ever growing demand %r the magazine. We're doing a complete overhaul of our online edition, and we're makin~ plans to produce more copies of our print edition." The new look of both editions will launch with the September tssue, to be released one week after the Two- Lane Livin' Meet & Greet. a histori- cal event for the magazine. "We are so proud to be able to introduce our readers to our magazine columnists m person." said Minne} '% magazine is built on quality con- tent. and our writers are high-quality people. It is their contributions to Two- Lane Livin '. not the design or presen- tation, that have made it so popular." The regular menu of The Copper Kettle will be available to those who would like to purchase dinner during the event. Alcohol and smoking are not permitted. Two-Lane Livin' ma~azine is cir- culated monthly into 16 counties, m- eluding: Calhoun:Clay; Wirt: Roane: Gilmer: Ritchie: Braxton. Lewis: Doddridge: Webster: Wood: Jackson: Nicholas: Kanawha: Tyler: and Upshur Counties.
