More on missing youth, Aliayah; and some good squirrel proofing cont'd ... I doubt it, but she may be a 21st century captive. Remember, if you know anything about her disappearance, don't hesi- tate to call. the Lewis County law enforcement authorities or the state police. The Lewis County Sheriff's Dept.'s number is 304-269-8245. She disappeared on Sept. 24, 2011 from her Weston area neighborhood, and her picture is in practically all of the 1- 79 rest areas. Or, if you have any clue as to her whereabouts, you can also call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843- 5678. Squelching the squirrels Thanks, kind readers, for your as- tute advice in preventing my neigh- borhood squirrels from pirating the birds' food out of my bird feeder. Berthyl Divers, of Bethesda, MD, highly recommends sprinkling dried blood around the bird feeder. This . blood can be purchased at hardware or garden supply stores. That sounds simple and reliable, so thanks, good hearted reader, for the advice. In addition, Grace Moss Rinehart, our 90+ year old avid reader from Charleston, sent me a colorful and funny cartoon about the predicament. I laughed. Also, this sage's advice is to just feed them both. Place nuts and food for the squirrels somewhat away from the bird feeder, then you can enjoy watching both the colorful birds and the lively squirrels at the same time -- each creature joyfully eating, playing, fighting and furtively watch- ing for their intruders. In other words, be kind to God's animals by feeding them; good ad- vice from our two distant readers. Other writers step up Thanks to last week's "Letters to the Editor" writers, who "cared" about the topics selected for their writings. The kindly Barbara Metcalfe, the 2013 Marion County Folk Festival Belle and Mayor of Pleasant Valley, praised the Folk Festival (the new leaders needed that). Next, the devoted Margaret Collins, of Glenville, stood up for our local nursing home -- good points being made. Finally, the observant Lucille Wilson's Carpet Center of Weston When one has tasted water- melon he knows what the angels eat. --Mark Twain I WEST VIRGINIA NEWSPAPERS SUPPORT AND HONOR THE VETERANS' LEGACY PROJECT Charles Freeman Clarksburg, WV Army Veteran World War II "Oh yeah, in Germany... fox holes...l would run when I could.

School Homecomings updates The official beginning of autumn was this past Sun., Sept. 22, so the high school and college homecom- ings are right on schedule. This weekend, however, belongs to the Gilmer County High School's Homecoming Parade, which takes place at 5 p.m., this Fri., Sept. 27 in downtown Gienville, with the foot- ball game to follow. With the Titans winning, now-and-then, this year, we editors highly recommend that you readers take out your families to the parade and the game that follows at the newly renovated and upgraded GSC's Morris Stadium to show your support of our younger generation and their activities. Seepages 2-5B in this paper's second section for more details about the GCHS Homecom- ing. Then, the Glenville State College's Homecoming will take place during the first weekend of October. The Gienviile State College's Parade will occur, as usual, in downtown Glenville at 10 a.m. on Sat. morn- ing, Oct. 5. These school parades are always festive, energetic, and colorful, so don't let your family miss them. Folk Festival Facts & Notes: Dear 2013 & 2014 Belles, The late Dr. Patrick Gainer, the noted Professor of Folk- lore at West Virginia Univer- sity and nationally-renowned in that field, was never self- centered. He was just like the rest of us: a rural and kind- hearted mountaineer. J In his retirement, he enjoyed traveling around the state and performing at various fairs and festivals. For example, he played the fiddle and sang old mountain songs at the tent Chautauqua, sponsored atthe Pearl S. Buck Birthplace Mu- seum in the mid-1970s. There, hegot more than what he bargained for, helping to corral some cows that got loose from their fenced in field. But, he was introduced as the founder of the WV State Folk Festival at that event.

We like hunting, too! The Management Other worthwhile events Two major anti-cancer activities are being planned. It's through small ef- forts like these that monies are raised to provide financial help to local fight- ing the dreaded disease. First of all,. the popular Gilmer County Cancer Unit's Salad Lun- cheon fund-raiser will take place on Wed. morning, Oct. 23 at the Trin- ity United Methodist Church in the downtown. You can either eat your tasty salad inside with your friends or family, or take it home or to your office for consumption with your friends. I like it because the ladies always fix such nutritious salads, so if you're like me, you won't have to worry about gaining any extra pound- age by supporting this fund-raiser. Secondly, and in addition to this traditional anti-cancer event, the WV Cervical & Breast Cancer Aware- ness Agency is planning to fund-raise at the Hays City intersection on Sat., Nov. 2. Volunteers will ask motorists for contributions, which they can place in containers. This is a good regional agency, which does a lot of free Mam- mograms for ladies in this area who can't afford the, at times, lifesaving procedure. Just to set it off as a creative new fund-raiser and to get everyone's at- tention, Kelley Cain, of the Gilmer County FRN, relays with a smile: "The area will be very colorfully deco- rated in bras." Really, I'd think our local men will find it difficult to keep their eyes on the road that day. With one hand, however, pull out some greenbacks to give to encourage these ladies on! 'Business After 5 Social' Remember that at 5 p.m. on this Thurs., Sept. 26 that the "FIRST Gilmer County Business After 5 PM Social Hour" will take place in the Alan Mollohan Campus Com- munity Center on the GSC campus ! ENACTUS, the students' new free enterprise club, will be spon- soring this Business After 5 Social Hour. They're certain to put on an interesting program. Them'l[ be plenty of parking spaces near the student center atop College Hill. Dr. Dwight Heaster, Asst. Prof. of Business Administration, and Ms. Heather Allman, Visiting Computer S.cience Instructor, are the co-advis- ers for this new business-oriented stu- dent club. Business After 5 is free to the pub- lic, and, in the past, hs been a useful social hour to learn more about local businesses, schools, governmental agencies and regional nonprofits. Par- ticularly, new businesses can garner free publicity from such a sponsor- ship. The social will be held in the Third floor's multipurpose room. See you there ! Conclusion Once again, have a great week and weekend, kind readers! And, be kind to a child whom you know; you might give him or her a book. Also, you could read to your youngsters. Your words and encouragement might be a life-changing experience for them.

Thursday. September 26, 2013 - The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder - Page 5A Jesus Has Prepared a Place for Christians "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And ifI go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myse!f; that where I am, there ye may be also." (John 15:1-3) Heaven is a very special place prepared for God' s people. We are told that our conversation (citizenship) is in heaven. "For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself." (Philippians 3:20-21) In these verses, the word conversation means "citizenship." The English Standard Version of Philippians 3:20 reads, "But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ." The American Standard Version reads, "For our citizenship is in heaven; whence also we wait for a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. The New King James Version also reads, "For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ." We have a building of God in the heavens; "For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." (2 Corinthians 5: 1) Christians have a hope laid up for them in heaven; "For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel." (Colossians 1:5) We are also told that Christians have an inheritance that is incorruptible, and undefiled, and it doesfi't fade away; "To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you." (1 Peter 1:4) Christians will meet Jesus in the air and always be with the Lord, "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) Christians will be presented to Him; "And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the .hope of the gospel..." (Colossians 1:21-23) Our future is in heaven. We need to strive to enter in to that heavenly realm by learning, believing, and obeying the truth.
