Glen villeNe ws. com ALL DRESSED UP AND PLACES TO GO ROSEDALE IN ITS HEYDAYS --- Showing the booming town of Rosedale in the early 1900s, this photo exhibits several landmarks that no longer exist. The gas rigs among the homes in the background, a gas compressor station Jn the foreground, and the old mill (black building, right side, center) -- all have passed out of existence over the past century. The three-story mill probably ground com and wheat. Also, the community had a wood stave mill, along with Shock and Bear Fork, according to the recollections of Mr. Ron Miller of Normantown, who was kind enough to share these historic photos with us. i+:ilil ~i::ill i~!ii: Local Chapter Organ&ation Held Red hats with purple attire?

Local farmers brought in their produce and gas and oil companies, their equipment, on wagons powered by oxen, like the team pictured. That would catch the by-standers' attention. Also, about 10 gas rigs stood tall in the community, being situated in-between the homes and businesses (not pictured) NATIONAL HOT LUNCH WEEK- For all the care that Lou Runyon (back row, second from right) we give = her a new apron that has been embroidered TES Loves Lou.

Mission West Virginia, a state- wide non-profit organization, part- ners with state agencies and local grassroots groups to teach computer skills through lab settings and dis- tribute hundreds of computers to in- dividuals through several innovative programs. MWV, in partnership with the ARC, has sponsored the "Step Up" program, which has established 32 new learning labs in thirteen south- ern and central West Virginia coun- ties. 700 adult literacy students work- ing with Literacy West Virginia tu- tors have received individual com- puters. In addition, 1,000 high school students will be a part of a Summer 2005 program, in cooperation with the Region 1 Workforce Investment Board, to teach computer technical fundamentals and software basics and West Virginia allow the students to build their own personal computers from component parts. Mission West Virginia also supplies technology to hundreds of non-profit and faith-based organiza- tions across the state. The overall Microsoft donation of $1 million in software will be tar- geted at facilitating broadband de- ployment and education and workforce training across Appala- chia. The grants of software will be made througl the ARC to local gov- ernments, community-based groups, and educational institutions in the 13 Appalachian states, with priority given to recipients in economically distressed areas. The grants will not only assist in broadband deployment throughout the region, they will also be directed at education and workforce training programs in those areas. i
