Delayed It's rather surprising to come home, after a few days away, and find a car parked in your front yard, especially if you live several feet below the road. That's what happened to the Frank Zinns following that had snow storm just after Thanksgiving. The car belonged to a college student. Never did learn his name. The Zinns pushed, pulled and manipulated until they got him to where Mr. Zinn could hook a tow chain onto it and tow him out. Gets a little rough sometimes. MarLy Byrd is recuperating at home from a broken leg. Marty didn't break her leg in one place, she broke it in two places. Augustine Frame is home from the hospital, and apparently getting along fine. Met that "lovable goose" Oscar Gainer in town the other day. He had me in stitches in no time. He doesn't improve with age, nor would we want him to. ' Ted Ellyson has been hospitalized. He has been in the Marietta Memorial Illll I I Hospital. Don't know, but hope he is improving. Mildred Fisher is suffering from Arthritis pain. This nasty weather. Who-e-a has the wind been strong today. Like to blowed the whiskers off the cats. Well, the good people of Tanner will be happy to know that we won't have to buy a horse and tie it up by the bridge and ask them to feed it for us so that we can get to the Post Office. I have it on good authority that the holes will be fixed. Thanks, thanks. Well, its that time again. That white fluffy stuff is flying. Hope it doesn't last long. It's getting to be a common thing for the Zinns to have a car in their yard. The latest was a gentleman from Braxton County returning from Parkersburg. It seems that he encountered a deer just as he started into that curve. I guess he had the car all over the road a few times, and finally lost it completely and wound up in the Zinn's yard. Of course the Zinns towed him out. He didn't hit the deer nor damage his car. That could get to be a profitable business. All you'd have to do would be just stay at home and pray for slippery roads. The Jim Byrds had quite a house full Sunday, December 11. Mrs. Ethel Ball, Mrs. Freda Whytsell and son, Richard: and Ernestine Ball and son, PhiUip, all of Grantsville; Mr. and Mrs. Denver Law and sons, Timmy and Darren, of the Tanner-Newberne Road; Mr. and Mrs. Kline Frymier and daughter, Leslie, of Newberne: were guests of the Byrds. Mrs. Eloise Byrd, wife of Bertis Byrd, has been in the Leonard Memorial Hospital in Buckhannon for surgery. She is home and getting along fine. [Current] Disaster has struck in our area again. Very early Saturday morning, Gifiords Longview Service Station was burned out. The young Giffords escaped in their night clothes. The fire destroyed everything they had, and they didn't have much insurance. Anyone wishing to help contact Mr. Elvin Garrett. They certainly could use all the help they can get. Thank you. Talk of hatching up ways to get your husband to help you, this takes the rag off the bush. Can you imagine falling off the rear end of a tractor and nearly getting run over by the fool FREE TURKEY from now until December 24th with every car thing to make your point? I wonder how long it will take my arm to heal? I don't think it was worth it. Darren Law, son of Mr. and Mrs. Denver Law, of the Tanner-Newberne Road was hurt at the Tanner-Norman- town game last week. The Tanner Elementary School was broken into last night. Now I ask you, what kind of person would break into a school and steal from the children? Well, that is what they're doing. Had a nice visit with Mary Ellyson this afternoon, was almost like old times. She is fine and asked about all her friends in Gilmer County. I would like to ask all of my friends for their help now I know that I get all of your support. I really appreciate it with all my heart, but this calls for a bit more. The good people of the Tanner Church have been dealt a very nasty blow so we must all get behind them and do what we can financially. Every little bit will be appreciated. Anyone wishing to help, please contact Vinton Robinson, Bob or Bud Cain. Thank you, folks, I knew you'd help. NO CLINICS The Health Department will not hold any clinics during the week of December 26. Bergland calls for new Secretary of Agriculture Bob Bergland recently told delegates to the Conference on Rural America here that despite recent population growth in rural areas, "rural people still have the highest percentage levels of poverty, the poorest housing, the most inadequate medical care, and the least access to public transportation." He said the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA} and the Admin- istration were determined "to develop a new national strategy for meeting these problems through a comprehen- sive and coordinated rural develop- ment program." The Secretary said that elements of this program were: *Reorganization of USDA's Rural Development Service so that it works more closely with programs of the Farmers Home Administration (FnHA), which has budgeted programs for rural development; *A 20 per cent increase in fiscal 1978 program budget for the Farmers Home Administration-to $8.2 billion: *Redirection lending to fe incomes; *An FmHA program t 20,000 rental unitS 25 per cent of the government difference.
