Myrtle diedAug. 5, 1929. Ira and Myrtle's children were Ena, Ina, Rena,' Ressie, Cressie, and Renis. On Dec. 23, 1933, Ira, 53, married widow Myrtle Hess Siers, 38. Myrtle was born 1892 and died in 1978. Soon after Ira and Myrtle were married they moved fromthe Rosedale area to the West Fork near Bear Run. I think their address was Orma. Ira and his second wife had three children. They were: Audie, born 1935 married Linnie McCune and died 2010. Darlie was born in 1937 and married Melvin Schoolcraft. Melvin died recently and C. A., born in 1940 married Waneta Sue Stump who died in 2010. This leaves Darlie the only surviving mem- ber of both Ira's families. C.A. was named by Ira. He was injured in a timber accident close to 30 years ago and has been paralyzed from his neck down since the acci- dent. C.A. has made his home in the Mile Tree Health Clinic in Spencer, WV for close to 15 years. Brothers Eugene, Harol d and I visi ted him there. C.A. and his wife Waneta lived in the Ira and Myrtle home place on a hill not far from the Ebeneezer Church that Papa ~helped organize. C.A.'s viewing and funeral will beheld in the Ebeneezer Church and he will be bur- ied with is parents and family mem- bers in the Ebeneezer Church Cem- etery. Wehavebeenhavinglots of lovely, warm, fall weather. My favorite wild- flower, the white and purple asters are blooming everywhere. We will not have many more wildflowers this year. The leaves are coming down pretty fast and soon they will put on their annual fall show of color. After the leaves are gone we can look for the yellow witch hazel to bloorr Last week I spent two days in CAMC for a heart ablation. Dr. Assal was my doctor. He said my problem was tricky to find but he took care of it and I should not have to take any- more of those trips to the ER with a racing heart. I am so glad. Next week the Stonestreet Farmly will come from far and near to the Crooked Fork Cabin for their annual family squirrel feed. Delicious autumn!

Weston, WV 26452. 304-517-1272 at the Time to Raise the Minimum Wage Working full-time for today's mini- mum wage is not enough to stay outof poverty. In West Virginia, and at the federal level, the minimum wage has not been raised since 2009. Nineteen states have raised the minimum wage on their own and, in 2013, the West Virginia legislature passed a resolu- tion supporting President Obama's proposal which would increase the federal minimum wage to $9.00 and index it to inflation. In a report released recently, "Giv- ing West Virginia's Workers a Raise: Increasing the State Minimum Wage," the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy calls for an increase in the minimum wage by putting it in con- text to its historic value and other benchmarks. The report also shows who would benefit from an increase in the minimum wage and explores some of the reasons why the tradi- tional arguments against raising the minimum-wage are largely unsub- stantiated.

Currently there are 10 DBSA chapters in WV and growing. DBSA is a peer to peer organization, meet- ings are free and confidential. These are open to those who suffer from the mood disorders of depression and bi- polar and their famiIy members. Meet- ings are facilitated by a person who is affected by a mood disorder in their own family. DBSA meetings are not counseling sessions but a sharing op- portunity for those in attendance. How does peer support work? Some of the ways are through the sharing of personal experiences, by use of the example of others, and because it is free and voluntary. Also, it is a way to learn about natural support systems, and helping each other to learn about recovery and the services that are available in the community. The motto of DBSA is, "We've been there... We can help", and we have seen this hap- pen at every DBSA meeting, we are there for you. Join us for the first meeting ofDB SA Lewis Co. at 6:00preen Men., Oct. 28 at St. Paul's Episcopal Church on the comer of Center and 2nd St. in Weston. Snacks will be provided.
