ON THE VERGE - October 13, 2005

“I believe that together we can make a difference in the lives of others. By remaining strong in faith and working together with our neighbors, great things can happen.”

I found this message on the back of a greeting card by American folk artist, Deb Strain.

This applies to us here in Calhoun County.

Yesterday, I took a picture of the new mayor, former mayor and our House of Delegates member sharing the honor (and responsibility) of a contribution to repair the streets in Grantsville. While listening to their conversation, they mentioned the co-operative attitude of Houchin Construction in Arnoldsburg. Billie and Jeff are known for their assistance with many projects, not only in their area, but in other parts of the county.

It warms my heart to see the caring that has been shown in our county in the past few weeks. We all have helped with donations for the people hurt by the flood.

We all donate to the Food Pantry, which serves the county. Government officials are cooperating. A business is assisting the whole county. The Chronicle is sponsoring weather spotting classes for the county. The Historical Society is pulling together historic structures from the county for a Historic Village. This is just what has happened in the last few months. We are on a roll! In other words, we are on the verge of great things happening in Calhoun County!

I will say this again, “Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, don’t mess with Mr. In Between”!

I have an appointment to talk to Opal Harris about the Medicare Drug Program. She will assist me in making my decision and then I will report the process to you. I am preparing a list of my prescriptions and the cost per year to take with me.
