United Bank, Inc.Announces CDARS Service to boost FDIC Coverage to over $1 Million United Bank, Inc. (United), a sub- sidiary of United Bankshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: UBSI) ann~need ~y a new service that will prov2de greater access to FDIC insurance for con- sumers, small businesses, nonprofit organizations and corporations with large cash reserves. The Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS) provides a secure savings and investment option for customers looking for additional FDIC insur- ance above the $100,000 currently covered. United is the first statewide financial institution in West Virginia to provide this service to its custom- ers. For the first time since FDIC insur- ance coverage was increased more than two decades ago, United has a new tool to provide customers with access to greater FDIC insurance cov- erage in excess of $1 million dollars. Through CDARS, Unitedean distrib- ute customer funds among other FDIC-insured banks, allowing cus- tomers t.~ manage all their CDs through one banking relationship. All statements come from United and no confidential information ever is trans- ferred to other banks. In addition, the CDARS system will deposit the same amount of funds at United that is transferred .out to their banks, boost- ing the amount of local funding avail- able to be put to work in the local communities.

In a comment to the Democrat and Pathfinder, Fealy remarks: "This Parkersburg news article praised our efforts among people throughout this region. Our Glenville city's beautification and modernization is being devel- oped on a sound footing, and the general public is in the know. That should help us greatly." Gilmer County's EDA hears news' of its development efforts At this Thursday's noon Gilmer County Economic Development Association's regular monthly meeting, some good news will, no doubt, be discussed. First of all, the CANA-GSC broadband Internet access project will be featured on the program of this October's West Virginia EDA Council statewide meeting. "The project's Carnegie Mellon University administrators will explain the value of having rural wireless broadband access to the Internet and how e-commerce can spin-off from it," Jim Fealy, the local EDA's executive director says. Secondly, Mr. Fealy has been notified that he was awarded a highly selective tuition waiver -- the equivalent of a scholarship --- to attend the Community Development Institute's late September-early October training session in Charleston. Several of the topics that will be learned are as follows: commu- nity development principles and its process, downtown revitalization, and workforce development, among others. "This is training in grassroots commu- nity and economic development, so Glenville and Gilmer County will even- tually benefit from my attendance at this weeklong WVU Extension Service- sponsored seminar," he points out. Thirdly, the EDA got a $2,000 Region VI Workforce Investment Board grant to bolster our local development initiatives, he reports. In a related matter, he mentions that Craig Worl, of Hard Rock Land Company, will represent Gilmer County on the Region VI Workforce's board of directors. Finally, the Annual EDA Community Awards Dinner, which has been set for 6:30 p.m. on Tues., Nov. 4 at the GSC Ballroom, is expected to bring out the whole community to celebrate this year's development and volunteer success stories, he says.

The Pope has nothing, as Pope, that he can sell to give to the poor. Let me tell you something. You may or may not know that Father Ed's brother is also a priest who has an orphanage in East Timor, a danger- ous place indeed. He lives in what we would call abject poverty. He would give everything he has, including his life, for the sake of those orphans. Ask him what he thinks of the Pope. Pastor Keenan's lack of logic never failstoamazeme.IfbeingPopecauses 40.

Since that time, women have become the fastest growing segment of newly diagnosed patients with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Each year 40,000 people in the U.S. are infected with HIV-30 percent of these are women. As women con- tinue to comprise a greater proportion of AIDS cases in the U.S., rising from eight percent in 1986 to 26 percent in 2001, this once-ignored patient popu- lation has emerged as a significant +!i~i![ii!i!:: : !: .... iiil~ii!iiil national health concern.
