Thursday, September 26, 2013 - The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder - Page 9A ! 855 Brown's Run Road, Call me in the evenings at By Debbie McPherson Burnsville, WV 26335 * * * 304-853-2706 * * * J. All of us attended the Burnsville Harvest Festival on Friday evening. The weather was great both Thursday & Friday, but Saturday was definitely wet. I'm so very sorry for the rain on Saturday. So many activities were planned. Jennifer, Karla, McKenzie and I went to the library on Saturday to pick up a few books to read. After our library visit, we stopped by the Harvest Festival to pick up lunch. The food was great. We visited with a few people there. Hopefully after the rain stopped in the late afternoon, people were able to come out and enjoy the festivities. On Friday evening the Burnsville Lions Club worked the concession stand selling hot dogs, chips & drinks. I visited with several people and was able to enjoy the square dancing. I ' didn't dance, but I do love to watch. Years ago I danced some with Roger Marsh. He was a good teacher. I saw Edna Allen Shaver from Bruceton Mills. She says that she reads the column every week because she en- joys hearing about what's happening in her hometown. Edna & I rode the bus together many years ago. Our bus driver was Delbert Hosey. Edna...I didn't forget. Your name has been mentioned in the column. It was great seeing you and your family. So sorry to hear of your sister's house fire. In the last few months several busi- nesses have opened up here m town. Some of those include AJ's Gun & Ammo Shop, Artistic Creations by Joyce, and Greenlief's Detailing. AJ's is located by the Burnsville Go Mart. Greenlief's Detailing and Artistic Creations by Joyce are both located in the old Burnsville Gulf station beside of the West house. Stop by and say hello sometime. Your support is most appreciated. Don't forget Hand Me Downs which is just down the street. Priscilla always has some nice items available for purchase.

Our sympathy goes out to the Allen family on the loss of thier loved one. She will be missed by her family and friends.

West Virginia Big Buck Con- test Begins with Bow Season The September 28 opening of the bow hunting season for deer marks the beginning of the annual West Vir- ginia Big Buck Contest. Antlered deer, taken between September 28 and December 31,2013, are eligible to be ' scored and entered. "Any hunter who bags a deer in West Virginia with antlers having eight or more points, a 26-inch beam length and points that are more than eight inches long may have a winning buck," according to Division of Natu- ral Resources Wildlife Biologist Gene Thorn. "Antlers will be measured according to the official scoring sys- tem for North American big game animals established by the Boone and Crockett Club." Plaques will be awarded to eight first-place winners for typical and non- typical bucks in gun, bow, muzzleloader and crossbow (physi- cally challenged) categories at next year's National Hunting and Fishing Day Celebration, which will be held at Stonewall Resort State Park on the fourth weekend in September. Gun and muzzleloader hunters whose bucks score more than 140 points typical or 165 non-typical will receive certificates commemorating the entry of their bucks into the West Virginia Big Buck Contest and Records Keeping Program. Bowhunters or physically challenged crossbow hunters whose bucks score more than 125 points typical or 155 non-typical will also receive certifi- cates. There were 189 new entries into the West Virginia Big Buck Records'last year that were taken during the 2012 season. The season total showed 22 bucks taken by gun, one by muzzleloader, 65 by bow and none by crossbows (physically challenged) that qualified for the West Virginia Big Buck Contest. Bucks taken in previous years may still be scored for a certificate and entry into the records if they meet the minimumscore. The DNR, Izaak Walton League of West Virginia, West Virginia Bowhunters Association, West Vir- ginia Muzzle Loaders Association, West Virginia Physically Challenged Advisory Board and Toyota are again sponsoring the contest. Many hunters have their deer scored by a team of official measurers during the West Virginia Hunting and Fishing Show, which is held in late January at the Charleston Civic Center. A list of Official Measurers is maintained on the DNR's website: Contest.shtm, or successful hunters can contact any DNR district office for additional information. Appoint- ments must be made for scoring trophies. To overextend yourself is to invite defeat. - G.

The lung cancer five-year survival rate (16.3%) is lower than many other leading cancer sites, such as the colon (65.2%), breast (90.0%) and prostate (99.9%). The five-year survival rate for lung cancer is 52.6 percent for cases detected when the disease is still localized (within the lungs). However/only 15 percent of lung cancer cases are diagnosed at an early stage. Beginning October 1,2013, Minnie Hamilton Hospital's Radiology de- partment will begin to offer a new screening for early detection of tu- mors in the lungs. It is a low-dose CT scan of the lungs. According to an article in the August 12, 2013 issue of Time magazine, there are 94 million current and former smokers in the U.S. and every year 160,000 of them die from lung cancer. A study re- leased by the National Cancer Insti- tute called the National Lung Screen- ing Trial, demonstrated that using low- dose CT instead of traditional X-ray resulted in a 20 percent decrease in this death rate. Because of the high rate of smokers in and around Calhoun County, this low-cost screening could be a valu- able tool in diagnosing our at-risk population early with lung tumors before they show symptoms and Can- cer spreads outside the lung area. The exoected cost of this screening will be approximately $125.00. Be- cause this is a screening, at this time most insurance companies are not covering the cost of this. Also, be- cause of the low cost, this screening will not be eligible for sliding fee. We, at the radiology department of Minnie Hamilton, are committed to providing state-of-the-art testing close to home. See your doctor to deter- mine if you could benefit from this new Screening.

My mother showed concern be- cause of my obsession for insisting on peanut butter and Welch's grape jelly on dark toast, for breakfast, when I was a kid. From my birth until my parents left the city of my birth, Dayton, when I was six, I had a "second" mother. In some ways she was a true surrogate. Her name was Corinne, but I called her"Baba" because I couldn't say her name. She was unusual for the time period in that she had a university degree. She lived with her parents on the other side of the wall of the du- plex. At one point, on a visit to Dayton, my mother addressed the issue of my love forPB. Baba informed my mother .that it was high in protein and good for me...I was now free to indulge myself. (At the time, I preferred Skippy. Today, I buy my PB at the organic shops that provide the PB with NO additives and low in salt or no salt.) But I digress...This is a very un- usual recipe. Miso and oranges flavor the PB...Hmmmmmm...It sOunds in- teresting and I can't wait to give it a try. It may be the start of a new addic- t,ion .... Miso-Peanut Spread By MARTHA ROSE SHULMAN Use this nutty, sweet and salty spread as a stand-in for peanut butter, or serve with cruditrs. I like to pipe it onto rounds of cucumber and slices of jicama. 1 ounce peanuts (heaped 1/4 cup), roasted I ounce unsalted, unsweetened smooth peanut butter (3 1/2 table- spoons) 2 tablespoons white or yellow miso 1 tablespoon honey 1 tablespoon mirin 1 teaspoon grated orange zest (op- tional) 1. Place the roasted peanuts in a plastic bag or a pastry bag and place on your work surface. Roll over the bag with a rolling pin until the peanuts are crushed. 2. Combine the crushed peanuts, peanut butter, miso, honey, mirin and orange zest in a bowl and stir together until smooth. Refrigerate 'until- ready to use. Yield: 2/3 cup Advance preparation: This will keep for several weeks in the refrigerator but you may want to thin it out a little with water or a little orange juice.
