Ralph's Uncle Wise Moore built the barn and painted it green trimmed in yellow. It was the only green barn around. 1 always wondered what inspired him to paint it green be- cause most barns were painted red at that time. Once time Veterinarian Matheny came to our house to doctor our sick cow. We told him we do not have a sick cow. He said they had told him they lived at the green barn. He said this was the only green barn I know of. Later, he told Ralph that someone had now painted their barn green. Arthur Boggs, who painted my barn, is a son of the former Arthur Brooks Boggs who was fatally in- jured in a railroad tunnel rock fall near Petroleum in 1963. Susanna Holstein wrote about the tunnel cave-in in her September Two Lane Livin column. We were a close neighbor of Arthur Brooks' family at the time of his death. Arthur Brooks was one of three men in the tnnnel when it collapsed. Arthur was the second man res- cued but died of his inju- ries in the hospital. Harry Nichols was well known in our community and he cotdd not be rescued so the ttmnel was sealed tip with his remains inside. Arthur Brooks is buried in the Shiloh, Tater Knob Cemetery and his grave marker says: Arthur Brooks Boggs, born 6-16- 1938 died 6-9-1963 hus- band of Marlene Furr and son of Benton and Sylvia McElwee Boggs. Recently Larry Jenkins who grew up oil Lower Two Run of Crooked Fork was in a bad truck, car ac- cident near Weston. Larry had several broken bones and was helicoptered to Morgamown. He has had some snrgery and I think is still in Morgantown and improving. Larry, we wish you have a speedy recov- ery and hope you can soon go home. Yesterday I heard that Freddie Long had passed away. Freddy grew up on Cub Fork of Crooked Fork and attended the Rosedale school with my boys. Freddie's father was Herb Long and his mother was Vacie Deulley Long. The family has my deepest sym- pathy. We are still having hot dry weather with a nice fall day once in a while. It is a good hay weather and we have been pntting up hay. I am sure pasture is getting scarce for some farmers and lawns, flowers, and ev- erything is drying up. Pas- ture fields and roadsides are covered with wild yel- low goldenrod and fields of WV wild sunflower. White thoroughwort and snakeroot are trying to bloom, but need rain. 1 hear the hornet nests vs Pat Ridpath, Buckhannon 304.472-5102 or patschat.ridpath41 @gmail.com Karla Rivera Bucklew will be in concert at the Buckhannon Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Church Sab- bath, October 15, 2016. She will again have CD's avail- able. I will have more statis- tics in a later Pat's Chat, or you can call the church (304- 472-0962) and leave a mes- sage and someone will get back with you. Pastor Rick Cutright had a baby dedication at the SDA Church September 17, 2016. Beautiful little Aurora Scott was dedicated in a ceremony with her mommy, Caitlin Mahoney, and Caitlin's grand- parents, Roy and Lois Waybright. After that joyous activity, Roy and Lois joined the Seventh-day Adventist Church on Profession of Faith. Standing with them was Elder Robert Toms and his wife, Fely, who were their first Adventist friends. It was a happy time for all of us. Every year at about this time the SDA church begins its yearly drive for funds called Campaign for Community. Whenever and wherever there is a disaster, Adventist Com- munity Services (ACS) help. Later you will probably hear Christmas carols in the air as some folks from our church go out to give some of you an opportunity to help. (Sheri Lyn Sapp is one of our most faithful campaigners.) From the September 2016 Visitor, Mountain Viewpoint section, page 221 read this: "Last year flooding in the southwest counties of West Virginia de- stroyed more than 300 small, pri vately-owned bridges link- ing rural homes to public roads. Those floods swept away the bridge in t'ront of Mr. and Mrs. Cart's home in Hamblin, WV. Though the Federal Emergency Manage- ment Agency provides public assistance for disaster relief, it does not offer individuals financial help, leaving people on their own to try and rebuild their access bridges." ACS helped install a bridge for the family that includes Mrs. Cart's father. Two days later he had a medical emergency that required an emergency vehicle to get him. The staff said that without the bridge he would not have survived. These situations inspire Mountain View Conference ACS leaders to participate in projects of the West Virginia Voluntary Organizations Ac- tive in Disaster (VOAD).(My husband, John Ridpath, when he was alive, was active in ACS and helped at Camp Dawson and in Charleston and other places, during Katrina disaster and other flooding.) "'Twenty -eightthousanddol- tars of Campaign for Com- CAITLIN MAHONEY AND DAUGHTER munity dollars have been do- nated so far to meet this great need,' according to Larry Murphy, MVC ACS director. 'Only the first 15 bridges have been completed. There are hundreds more to build and lives are still in danger.'" Please be as generous as pos- sible when someone comes to your door or place of business and asks for help. You can trust that what you give for that fund will be used in local West Virginia needs, never for our own church needs. If you want to donate, please leave a message at the church, 304-472-0962, or send your donation to SDA Church, Community services, at P. O. Box 205, Buckhannon, WV 26201.
