Lastly, most herbals will end each plant topic with Preparation and Dosage. Here, you will find the various means of preparation, appli- cation and suggested regulated dos- ages. An Alternative, though no longer a common medical term, implies re- directing the body to a healthful state. Herbs in this group produce gradual and beneficial change. Simi- lar in effect to Tonics which strengthen specific body organs, Al- ternatives mainly promote good clean blood. An Alternative American ivy, parthenocissus quinquefolia (vita- ceae), also goes by some Common Names like American woodbine, false grape, five leaves, Virginia creeper and woody climber. This woody vine, with five digitate (like a hand) smooth, pointed and toothed leaves, can be found in most all parts of the United States support- ing itself on a variety of surfaces. The blossoms of small almost unno- ticed greenish or white flowers ap- pear before the small dark blue ber- ries in the fall. The bark and twigs of the plant are used in decoctions, tinctures and syrups for coughs, colds and similar minoi pulmonary complaints. American ivy is also considered as an astringent, expec- torant and tonic. Recognizing a plant, awareness of its family and knowing its proper- ties are all helps towards prepara- tion and use.

Surprising World of Products 107-B East Washington St. Lewisburg, WV 24901 or Phone: 647-4555 By Sandy Manspile "Thank you" is such a small word to use for the tremendous turn out by the citizens of Greenbrier County, not only to help, but to eat the out- standing meal December 17 to pay for the Christmas lights to "Lite Up Our Town" in Rainelle. People are the most beautiful "commodities." They showed their true colors -- coming forth to donate food, time, money and labor to make the dinner such a big success. This was a community project for everyone to help and everyone to lend a helping hand. Our sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone who braved the bad weather to come out and eat. Humble thanks go out to radio station WYKM of Rupert and WRRL of Rainelle who announced the din- ner so many times. To the town em- ployees and Appalachian Power for putting up the old and new lights and taking them down and storing them in a safe place with tender lov- ing care. Thanks to the town employees for the outstanding remodeling job on the large star on the hill side, which will shine as a cross at Easter time; to R. C. Bottling Co. for the soft drinks, the Rainelle Community Center for the building; tables from the Rainelte Fire Department (plus their help) and the Highland First Church of God; those who sold tick- ets for the dinner. Our kindest regards to the follow- ing newspapers and T.V. stations for their elite coverage for our com- munity project. The Mountain Mes- senger, The Meadow River Post, Charleston Daily mail, Charleston Gazette, Valley Ranger, West Vir- ginia Daily News and Beckley Post Herald. T.V. stations were WSAZ and WOWK both of Huntington, WCHS of Charleston, WOAY of Oak Hill and WVVA in Bluefield The total bill for our new lights, repair of the star, repair and replace- ment of the old lights was approxi- mate!y $4,716. We do not have the bank statement as of this date, so the small balance of less than $400 is still outstanding. Donations of food, cakes, deco- rations and supplies came from Kro- ger Store, Murphy's, Roger Brown, E. Holcomb, Louise Cale, Dorothy Lefler, Sandy Manspile, Violet Johnston, Freda Pruitt, Rosalie Carr, Ruby Simms, Sue Walker, Janice and Robert McLaughlin, Hardee's, Long John Silvers, Aide's Discount, Naomi Smith, Marlene Spitzer, Law- rence Harris and Patty Weed.

The outstanding and able cooks of our community, with their exper- tise turned out, prepared and served the food. They were Naomi Smith Marlene Spitzer, Roger Brown, Sandy Manspite, Freda Pruitt, Rosalie Carr, Lolita Wilt, Sue Walker, Paul Gwinn, Arnold Reed This community project was such a great success. Each and everyone can tip their hats and say "What a wonderful community we live in and love our beautiful lights that will lite up our town" for years to come. Ev- eryone had a hand in this outstand- ing event. We can all say thanks, thanks to such wonderful people. Our only regret was we ran out of food. Really, we could have served another 100 people. The weather was a monster that day, but we will know the next time that regardless of weather conditions, the beautiful outstanding people will turn out to help pull together for a better com- munity. Again our sincere thanks and gratitude to each and everyone who had a helping hand to "Lite Up Our Town." Much For Hospital Insurance?
