Page 10B -- The GlenviUe Democrat/Pathfinder -- Thursday, Sept. 18, 2003 News NES STUDENTS HONORED BY FLAG AND PLAQUE - Samantha and Allen Gregory display the plaque presented to the school as they stand before the flag flown in honor of Normantown Elementary School and its students. Their father, Larry Gregory sent the flag to NES after having it flown in Kuwait on April 27, 2003 and in Iraq on May 19, 2003 in honor of his children's school. Larry is assigned to the 1092nd unit. Samantha (fourth grade) and Allen (sixth grade) led the pledge of allegiance at school last week and the plaque and flag adorn the entryway to the school for all visitors to see. Historic Weston State Hospital cur- rently open for weekend tours Constructed in the 1860s, the Old Weston State Hospital, which has been closed for over a decade, is arare landmark, being the largest cut-stone buildin g in the United States. Unfortunately, it has been occasionally vandalized since being vacated by the state's Department of Mental Health. On the other hand, a Lewis County preservation coalition is trying to save the building by publicizing its rich historic heritage via weekend tours. It's open Sat., 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and Sun., noon-3 p.m. The general public is encouraged to visit and to take the modestly-priced tour. Many residents of Gilmer County worked at this once large and thriving mental institution. ) Main Ave Weston, WV Formerly Heilig Meyers Bldg.

Indeed, the heart of the story, the "Rapture," is an invention con- trary to the first 1900 years of ortho- dox Christianity. The authors of the books dig into the book of Revelation (also called "Apocalypse") for inspiration. What they fail to understand is that their way of interpreting that final Bible book is also not Orthodox Chris- tianity. For the first 1000 years of Christian his- tory, the images and pre- sentations in that book were always seen as analogies from which moral interpretations could be drawn. This is the same way biblical scholars approach the book today. But during the 1 lthcen- tury, writers like Joachim of Fiore initiated an approach to the book which saw it as a collection of proph- ecies predicting future events. Sehol- ars today are quite sure that the origi- nal author intended no such thing. Why is it important to know this? Because many popular beliefs about the end times are derived from such a false interpretation. The hind series feeds that lack of knowl- edge. Individuals are looking at cur- rent world events or personages as biblical predictions, when the , are not. Rather, such views are based on an approach to biblical interpreta- tion that is, again, an invention of the 11 th century. The book of Revelation is the prime example of apocalyptic lit- erature. This way of writing, with images and scenes highly symbolic, was meant to sustain the faithful on the verge of, or in the midst of, persecution. The symbols of the book refer to the time contemporaneous with when written (lst cen- tury AD), and find their realization in the perse- cuting pagan Roman powers. The only fu- ture-predicting aspect of the book is the indi- cation that good and evil will always be in con- tention, hut good will eventually triumph. That was the message then, and the message for our time. All else is referring to the early persecution of Chris- tians. The criticism I receive, each time I address the book of Revelation, indicates the pervasiveness of mis- interpretation of the book. I donft know which topic brings the harsh- est reaction: explaining Revelation, or defending evolution. But my ap- proaches to both of those topic, s are supported by solid biblical scholar- ship and are equally solidly loyal to Christian belief. The Bible is not a vehicle to be used as a bludgeon against good science or world history,. Gilmer County Public Drops of Information... The Gilmer County Public Service District would like to take this oppor- tunity to keep their customers in- formed of changes and updates that are occurring within the local and state level. Locally, the district is pleased to announce the Normantown/Stump- town project is finally beginning to take off. A public meeting is sched- uled for Thursday, September 25, 2003 at the Normantown Elementary School gymnasium. This meeting will be from 5:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. to allow those interested in signing up for water to do so. The project engi- neer, Randy Watson from Thrasher Engineers, will be available for ques- tions and information as well as dis- trict staff and Board members. On the state level, some procedural changes are occurring, due to the pas- sage of Senate Bill 412. This Senate B'II changes the method that termina- tion of services will be handled and below is a summary of these changes: Previously, termination proceed- ings began twenty (20) days after the past due date, now they begin ten (10) days after the past due date printed on the bill card. All bills are considered due on the day they are issued (which is the last working day of the month). Any outstanding balances not received and posted in the office by the end of the PSD's business day will be con- sidered delinquent proceedings will If payment is not customer's security applied to the (which is currently services are connect fee will as possibly a If the account ~s date, the account to Magistrate tion Agency paid by the customer'.
