6B The Mountain Messenger, Tuesday, Jaruary 9, 1990 ~ Says: Electric Industry Powerful Here T ~iI i] ;! SPECIALISTS IN INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP MEDICAL INSURANCE For years we have masked our food with salt. If it doesn't taste salty we think something is wrong and shake on more. We go into a panic when the doctor says, "No more salt! You need a low-sodium diet." How will we cook? How will we eat? How will we break the salt habit? And what will we do when we can't have salt any more? Any acid or alkali mixture is a salt. In a nutritional context salt usu- ally means table salt, sodium chlo- ride. Phosphorus, sulphur and chlo- rine are acid forming minerals while potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium are alkali or base. Main- taining a proper mineral balance is important to the body: An excess of sodium retains fluids and destroys the body's important sodium-potas- sium balance making it tough on the heart to circulate the blood. Try re- moving the salt mask on food with spices. Spices are basically herbs in a dried form which enhance the natu- ral flavors of food in a more nutri- tional way. Just a "pinch" of these flavor enhancers goes a long way. Remember, we are breaking away from the salt habit. Nutmeg (Myris- tica fragrans) on green beans will stop anyone from saying "green beans again." Nutmeg is the kernel of the seed from a tropical ever- green tree. (The outer coating from this seed gives us the spice, mace.) Besides the pleasant smell, nutmeg works with our stomach to improve appetite and digestion. For full flavor and fragrance buy them whole and Ronceverte grate them yourself. Another sweet spice to try is all- spice (Pimenta officinalis). Allspice is the dried berry of a pimento tree. An evergreen which grows as tall as 40 feet and is found in Central and South America. Mexico and the West Indies. Both an aromatic and a carminative (expels gas from the in- testines), Allspice also aids diges- tion. Cloves are another tropical sweet spice. A clove is actually the dried flower bud of the clove tree, a me- dium size evergreen tree native to the Philippines and the Spice Is- lands and also grown in other tropi- cal areas. Cloves will sooth and re- lieve pain (anodyne), counteract nausea and relieve vomiting (an- tiemetic) and may be used as an antiseptic. A drop of clove oil on a sore tooth will relieve the pain of a toothache while a tea made from cloves relieves nausea). Besides their beneficial qualities, all of the sweet spices including cin- namon and mace are good flavor accents for beets, carrots, cabbage, cauliflower, corn, green beans, on- ions, parsnips, pumpkin, spinach, squash, turnips or even fruit. With practice you will get to know the foods each spice flavors best. Just a pinch, an eighth of a teaspoon, is all it takes to break the salt habit.

The matter was discussed at the January 2 meeting, of the City's Board of Commissioners at City Hall. Mayor Eugene Kelley said Susan Pierce, Director of Review and Compliance for the West Vir- ginia Historic Preservation Office, has written to the City stating the buildings must be studied for their historic value before any action is !aken. Mayor Kelley said he believes ~he City will have to fund the study ibut it is not certain whether the 'money will have to be taken out of ~he $95,000 earmarked for the ac- quisition The amount is the remain- :t~er from the Small Cities Block i~rant used for the recent "Street- ~cape" Downtown Revitalization ~roject on Edgar Avenue, The Board is studying the possibility of emolishmg some of the buildings ~once they belong to the City. less driving, expired operator's li- cense, driving under the influence of alcohol, failure to stop at a stop sign, illegal parking, .driving too fast for road conditions, and driving with- out lights. Police investigations for Decem- ber included a case involving dam- age to a Ford pickup and a Subaru station wagon parked downtown December 5. Also investigated was the theft of $100 in currency and food stamps from the C-Mart at ,West Virginia Route 63 and U. S. 219. No one has been arrested in connection with either incident, ac- cording to police. By F. J. Caizonetti West Virginia University News Service Most West Virginians are pain- fully aware of the state's economic woes and the problems the state faces when trying to attract new in- dustry. Few West Virginians know, how- ever, that the state has at least one industry, the electric power industry, which is one of the strongest in the nation. This industry has world class facilities, injects billions of dollars into. the state's economy year after year and employs thousands of people directly and indirectly through its use of the state's re- sources. The electric power industry is im- portant to West Virginia because the industry, in addition to providing a service, is a manufacturer of a valu- able commodity. In the early part of the 1980's some people became aware and even concerned that as much as 70 per cent of the power generated in the state was being sold outside of West Virginia. A group of investigators funded by the West Virginia University En- ergy and Water Research Center have completed a comprehensive evaluation of electricity exports from West Virginia. The product of this study, Power From the Appalachi- ans: A solution to the Northeast's Electricity Problems?, has recently been published by Greenwood Press. Authors Frank Calzonetti, Timothy Allison, Muhammad Ch- oudhry, Gregory Sayre and Tom Witt conclude that electricity should be viewed both as a product and as a service. The production of electric- ity as a manufactured product is no different than the production of steel, chemicals or aluminum. The state gains substantial revenues, to- cal communities gain taxes and many areas are provided with jobs needed to maintain the operation of the plants and provide the plants with fuel, which in all cases is coal. While there is often concern over GOOD- LOOKING GOOD. SELLING ADVERTISEMENTS APPEAR IN THE MOUNTAIN MESSENGER.

As part of the study, the authors completed a detailed comparative cost analysis. This analysis revealed that West Virginia is a good place to locate power plants if plants are to export power to the mid-Atlantic seaboard. New, large coal-fired power plants with scrubbers can be built in northern West Virginia at a lower cost than in New Jersey. The power can be delivered at a lower rate to New Jersey consumers even if new electricity transmission lines are built, The researchers found that large markets for West Virginia power exist, and utilities in New England, New Jersey and Virginia are seriously considering West Vir- ginia as a source of electricity for their impending needs. It will not be an easy task to in- crease the sales of electricity'from the state without some major changes according to the authors. The biggest problem is the question of transmission capacity. If new power plants are built in West Vir- ginia, it will be necessary and pru- dent to increase the transmission capacity from west to east. There is also great uncertainty about the ef- fects of future acid rain legislation. Legislation may affect the most of generating coal from existing and new power plants. Foreign competi- tors may enter the market in certain areas and compete with power from the Mountain State. Despite these uncertainties, the book is supportive of the state's ef- forts to develop the industry and to work both with the power industry and independently to develop sites for electricity generation. The au- thors call .for further study on the transmission system in order to gain better information on ways to im- prove the delivery system. JIM McCUTCHEON, Managing Agent / Barbara H.
