A Cheer For Titan Supporters As GCHS honors its senior athletics, we reflect back to the spring and summer of '88 when doubts and fears filled the hearts of Gilmer County students con- coming their future in the sports program at Gilrner County High School. Many of our seniors had worn the red, white, and blue with pride for three years and hoped to wear the Titan uniform once more as seniors. When every- thing seemed impossible, a group of caring parents, teach- ers, community leaders, and businessmen were willing to make the dream come tree for not only the seniors, but for all students 7-12 at Gilmer County High. There were those who cared enough to give time, of- fort, and money for our sports program. The students are grate- ful to everyone who helped in any way to make possible the sports opportunities which Gilmer County students deserve. Win or lose, the Titan pride is always there fiom night after night of practice, repairs at Rohrbough Field, volunteer ef- forts, financial support, those adults willing to do all that they can to make the program go. The names of those people are not put up in lights or spread across the front page of a news- paper but the thanks come when the "Pride of Gilmer County" (our young people) run onto the football field or onto the basket- ball court or when All-State honors spread the sports page. As football and girls' basket- ball season close, the 7-12 stu- dents are looking forward to a winter and spring of wearing the red, white, and blue with Titan Pride thanks to those of you in Gimer County who care. GCHS students give a cheer for all those Titan Supporters. Wine sales decrease 29% Treasurer of State A. James Manchin recently distributed $138,058.85 to cities and coun- ties in West Virginia as their share of the state's tax on bottled wine, noting that wine sales are down 29% in this quar- ter, contrasted with 1987. "This is the distribution for the third quarter of fiscal year 1988," Manchin said, "and represents a quarterly decrease in wine sales and, thus, a decrease in revenues for the local jurisdictions over the third quarter of last year when $178,244.23 was distrib- uted. Glenville received $35.22 as its share of the distribution of the tax. A taxpayer who filed his or her federal income tax return and later finds that some income was not reported or a deduction or credit was not claimed can file an amended return. Form 1040X, Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, should be used to correct Forms 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ. Tax- payers should not file another Form 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ for the same year. The taxpayer should write the income, deductions and credits on the Form 1040X as they were reported on the original return, as well as any changes being made and the corrected amount. If amending a 1987 return to claim an exemption for a de- pendent who was age 5 or over on December 31, 1987, the tax- payer must enter the dependent's social security number. Then the tax should be calculated on the corrected amount, and the amount of tax owed or refund due should be figured. If tax is owed, it must be paid in full with the Form 1040X. The tax owed will not be sub- tracted from any refund not yet received or from any amount credited to estimated tax. The check or money order should be made payable to the "internal Revenue Service" with the taxpayer's social security num- ber and daytime phone number written on it. Also write the year and type of return that is being amended. A refund will be sent to the taxpayer separately from any re- fund related to the original re- tum. An amended return must be filed within three years after the date the original return was filed or within two years after the date the tax was paid, whichever is later. Finally if a taxpayer's federal return is changed for any reason, it may affect state income tax liability. Taxpayers should check with their state tax agency for details.

How will I know if the food I buy is irradiated? Is it harmful? It currently is legal in this country for certain foods - including wheat, spices, teas, pork, fruits and vege- tables - to be irradiated for the pur- pose of preservation or decontamina- tion Although irradiated food is avail- able in about 30 other countries, the process is considered too controversial and expensive for general cmnmercial use in the U.S. Radiation can be used at various levels to keep potatoes, onions and garlic from sprouting anti berries from molding; to delay the ripening of fruit; to kill the microorganisms that cause food poisoning or to s~i~9 them from reproducing; and to the insects growth of certain contaminating or- ganisms, it may produce mutations that are even more dangerous. Op- ponents also point out that irradiation destroys certain vitamins and may create cancer-causing agents. And, since one of the major radl 'oactive ele- ments used for irradiation tcesium- 137) is harvested from nuclear waste, some people fear the widespread trans- portation of nuclear waste and the dan. get --- to the workers and the com- munities -- of opening more irradia- tion Iacilities. Is irradiated food harmful to your health? The FDA says it is not. Mill- that cause spoilage. Even though ap- tary personnel, astronauts and hospi- proval has been granted by the Food tai patients with immune disorders and Drug Administration tFDA), you have eaten irradiated food for many years with no reported harmful side can be reasonably sure that )ou ave not purchasing irradiated g ,}ds The prtmess of irradiation is differ- ent from microwaving, in which mole- cules are merely "st irred up" to create heat. Irradiation is powerful enough ,it. fact, aboul million times as powerful as a chest x-ray for indi- vidual molecules in the food to a,' rually break open. When a whole food has been irradi- ated, it must be labeled with an inter- national logo that resembles a flower within a circle. However, since foods Ihal contain irradiated ingredients are not required to carry this label, there is no way to know for sure if your food has irradiated contents. Proponents of the treatment say that regular use of irradiation will result in fresh, contamination-free food: blue- berry season would last longer; fish would taste ocean-fresh anywhere in the country; sausages would last for years; food poisoning would be non- existent. More important, irradiation would help to fight world hunger, be- cause large quantities of grain could be shipped to countries where people are tarving, and the grain could be stored without risk of spoilage or con- lamination. Opponents of irradiation argue that there are better and safer ways to preserve food and to prevent contami- nation. While irradiation arrests the effects. Yet some studies found that animals that are fed with irradiated f, xl had a higher incidence of chromo- s,nal abnormalities and tumors; in the only reported such study conducted on humans, a group of children who were fed irradiated food developed abnor- malities in their white blood cells. The i,'DA disputes the validity of this study, although numerous scientists stand by the findings. Even though the processing and con- sumption of irradiated food are con- sidered to be safe by our overnment, many scientists andphysleians argue to the contrary; in fact, legislation currently is before Congress that would suspend F'DA approval of food irradia- tion until further studies are done.
