Thursday, Dec. 9, 2004 -- The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder -- Page 3B I III ol 9. LATIN LITURGY: Marissa Thrasher, Sara Rodriquez, Kyle Dugas, Ben Justice, and Maggie Beth Smith Latin Mass at Good Shepherd On Sunday, December 5, Good Shepherd parishioners participated in a Latin liturgy for the first time since the mid 1960s when the centuries old Latin Mass was supplanted by Mass in the vernacular. The Mass celebrated was the Vatican II Latin liturgy, and was graced with the singing of Gregorian Chant by Glenville State College stu- dents The collegiates had been tak- ing a course about Gregorian Chant in their music program, and welcomed the opportunity to actually sing au- thentic chant. They began practicing with Fr. Ed in late October. The selections included the entrance antiphon "Cibavit eos" ( He fed them) from the feast of Corpus Christi (Body of Christ,) the Greek K.yrie XI from Orbis factor, the III Credo, Sanctus from the Mass for the Dead, Angus Dei (Lamb of God) IX Cum Jubilo, and the Advent antiphon "Rorati Coeli Desuper" (Rend the Heavens from above) - an ancient hymn with psalm verses giving voice to the ardent long- ing for the Messiah. Glenville Bridge Club holds annual Christmas event The Glenville Bridge Club met for Christmas dinner and bridge play on Thursday, December 2, 2004 hosted by member Mary Jo Ours at her home in Baldwin. Members and guests attending this six-table event were Lorene and Rex Hardman; Crystal and Paige Hinzman; Bruce Hathaway; Ruth Chisler; Kathryn Bell; Racheal Reed; Annie Glover; Marilyn and Don Phillips; Mona and Jim James; Rosalee and Harless Turner; Gayle B urkowski; Wanda Ch ambers; Leon a Beall; Lorena Wolfe; Gloria and Gink Summers and Pat Stump. Instead of a gift exchange the group voted to con- tribute $100.00 to the renovation project of the Gilmer County 4-H Cottage at Jackson's Mill. The Glenville Bridge Club is a group of duplicate bridge players who meet and play duplicate bridge twice a month at the Gilmer Public Library. A donation is made to the Gilmer Public Library following each evening of play. New bridge players are wel- come and instruction is available for those interested in learning the game. Further information is available from Lorene Hardman at 462-7468. A game of regular bridge also meets Tuesday morning from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM at the Gilmer County Senior Center. Bridge is considered by many to be more than just a card game. Some consider it a "cerebral sport" that can teach logic, reasoning, quick think- ing, patience, concentration and part- nership skills. It is a game that can be enjoyed by young and old, male and female, weak and strong. It crosses all barriers and many believe its stimu- lation helps with maintaining better mental functioning as your brain cells age. Anyone who can count to 40 and pass second-grade math should be able to learn to bid and play like an expert! IIII O/met County Senior Corner I Menu Dec. 9 - Pork Chops, Lima Beans, .

Wise announces results Gov. Bob Wise recently announced the results of a study by the Commission on the Baby Boom Generation on the needs of West Virginia baby boomers. Wise created the commission during his 2004 State of the State address. "One of my concerns for the future of West Virginia is meeting the needs of our baby boomers," Wise saAd. "This commission has met my challenge of surveying the needs of West Virginia's boomers so we can meet current challenges and accurately plan for the future." Questions about employment, health care, insurance, retirement and interest in a baby boomer summit were asked of 200 randomly selected baby boomers. "Our boomers responded, sharing their attitudes, opinions and perceptions of the state and identifying the most important issues facing individuals ages 46-64," Wise said. Three in 10 boomers cited health care costs as the biggest problem for West Virginia boomers, and 1 in 5 cited health insurance. Other concerns are jobs and unemployment; personal finances; personal safety; social security; loss of retirement funds; and care for older family members or in-laws. Boomers also expressed concerns with the cost of prescription drugs and paying for their children's education. "riffs data demonstrates the challenges we must address to protect and care for the citizens of this state. The concerns of the baby boom generation are heard across the country," Wise said. "We've made great strides in several of these issues, including funding the PROMISE Scholarship and creating a pharmaceutical advocate to help fight the rising cost of prescription drugs, but there is still work to be done. These results will help us look at ways to address the concerns of baby boomers in the future."
