In his three assorted a variety of L people. He way: "A each other love but Dr. Adams and his friends returned to Clay County last weekend, during the Clay County Golden Delicious Festival and danced in the streets with county residents, Although nothing was decided. Terry Barren, a member of the Regional Health Planning Council board of directors said "I think there is a possibility that. with a different approach, they might come here." Barrcm, who invited the Adams commune originally and camped out with them last Saturday night, said he personally believes they should buy or lease land rather than asking for a gift of land in return for their services. Adams had said in July his group would provide free medical care in return for the farm. He said they would generate income on their own in other ways, pointing out that their lifestyle is simple and requires little Financial outlay. But Barron disagrees with the commune's premise. "I feel that to exist they must have a degree of independence." he said. "I think everyone is beginning to feel it would be the best thing if they didn't depend on anyone, but rather generated enough money to just buy a place." Dr. Adams told Barren his group wanted to think it over. Murray Smith. president of the Clay County Bank and president of Clay County Health Services, said he would welcome the Adams group here. "Personally. if they can set broken legs and give shots and things like that, I don't care if they wear their hair in pigtails down to their waists." However, Smith said Clay County is thinking of another possibility for providing health care services. The County Health Services organization has applied for National Health Service Corps physicians. "I think if we got doctors from NHSC there's a good chance they might stay on after the two years are up." Smith said. If that's their leaning. Smith might like to know that Gilmer County has already gone through two sets of NHCS physicians and all four doctors left after their terms were concluded to seek additional training and less rural practices. mmmmmmmmmmmnmmmmmmmn-: Construction began on the State t]ealth Department's first Regional }tealth Center building last month in Philippi and should be completed within a year, according to Dr. NH. Dyer, State Director of Health. The Department's Office for Region VII now occupies the third floor of the Williams Building in Philippi. It was first opened in October 1973 to serve the seven counties of Barbour. Braxton, Gilmer, Lewis. Randolph. Tucker. and Upshur. and has a staff of six persons. The site of the new one-story brick center is located on South Main in Philippi. It will have a large parking area behind the building to accomo- date visitors to the center and an increased staff. Cost of the sixty-seven room center, fully equipped, is approximately $845,000 most of which was made available through federal funds. When fully staffed, over twenty- five persons will be stationed at the regional health center offering services in the fields of environmental mmmtmmmm-"mmmmmmm i health, dental health, laboratory. maternal and child health, nutrition. public health education, and public health nursing. Some clinical sessions will be held at the center but they are not to replace the local county health departments. Dr. Dyer emphasized. The purposes of the regional centers are to supplement existing local services, to establish new ones and to provide more rapid service through decentralization of State personnel. An advisory council composed of representatives from the seven counties in the region is expected to work closely with the staff to identify significant health needs, develop programs and to evaluate the combined efforts of the local county health departments and regional center.
