Dec. 10 and 11. beginning at 7 p.m. each evening. Rehearsals are in full swing and the excitement can be feh in the air as Heartwood gears up for its 12th annual December Celebration. Two evenings of dance, theatre music, surprises and prizes are planned. This year's Celebration will feature the return of West Virginia Artist Ilene Evans. At last year's December Celebration, Ms. Evans joined Heartwood students in presenting "'The Great Blueness" a musical romp celebrating color and diversity, much to the delight of the audiences of over 100 who attended each evening. Ms. Evans' performance at this )'ear's December Cel- ebration will be the grand finale of her week-long resi- dency at Heartwood funded by Lights On?. Ms. Evans is a storyteller whose African. Celtic, and Native American heritage enriches her stories, poems and music. She sings, speaks, and dances through performances which crisscross and bridge culture. This year Ms. Evans will join Heartwood's acting class performance of the hilarious comedy by Heart- wood Artistic Director Jude Binder, "'Ears, Eyes, Legs, Arms" from an African parable. "'Ears, Eyes, Legs, Arms" will be accompanied by Hear[wood's Music Instructor. Michael Franek, and drummer Jeanne Jacobs. Artist Gideon Kendall designed the puppets, props and set pieces for "'Ears. Eyes. Legs, Arms" in the summer of 1994 with the students in the art program of Heartwood's Festival". In addition to performing "Ears, Eyes, Legs, Arms," Heartwood's Acting class w'ill present "Who's On First" by Harry Gilles, which was made famous when performed by Abbott and Costello, and which has been arranged by Jude Binder for ensemble. This year' s entertainment line-up also includes dances by Heartwood's Dance Teams and a "Percussion Discus- sion" featuring Michael Franek and the students of his Percussion Class. The December Celebration is a showcase of the work of the s:udents and faculty of Heartwood's Fall Program.

Dec. 2, 2(~4 ~ The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder -- Page 11 for Traffic Safety Top Priority During Month December has been designated as National Drunk and Drugged Driving (3D) Prevention Month. Prevention Month has grown dra- matically since 1982 when President Reagan designated December 9-15 as 3D Awareness Week. In 1991, the National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month Coalition was formed. Since that time, the group has witnessed increased efforts among communities to expand existing pro- grams and launch new initiatives. The coalition is made up of representa- tives from the federal government, highway safety organizations, public health organizations, law enforce- ment, private industry and the mili- tary. "The West Virginia State Police is continuing its participation in the na- tional Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention campaign," said Colonel Howard E. Hill, Jr., Superintendent of the West Virginia State Police. With the holidays approaching, alco- hol and drug usage tends to increase; therefore, the chances of someone being injured or killed in a drunk or drugged driving related crash are very high. I have directed Troopers around the state to strictly enforce the drunk driving laws along with underage drinking laws this holiday season."
