County in September and practices in new facilities at Greyrock Profes- sional Park on Davis-Stuart Road in Fairlea. With the approaching retirement of James W. Banks, another area orthopedic surgeon, Dr Deacon said he felt the time was right to move. Conrad Tamae is the only other orthopedic surgeon in the region besides Dr Banks. "It can drive you crazy if you're the only one of your specialty around, with all the work you get. I felt this was the time to re- locate here. "1 like the lifestyle here. It's low- keyed with very few hassles. The people are really nice. It's not like the big cities, where there's a lot of pressure to conform." Dr Deacon is optimistic about the continuing importance of the area as a hub of medical activity. "This area is a medical center for a large area. Even though there are a few things we'll never be able to offer right here, we have the capability of doing the majority of procedures in- volved in the specialities." "A medical center defines itself," he adds. "A lot of surgical sub-spe- cialists are being recruited here. What we're doing is getting a lot of them and having them cover the specialties necessary for this area. That's good for the community. No one wants to go the Roanoke or Charleston for health care. The quality of medical care in southern West Virginia is excellent. That's one reason I came here." Innovations seen in the past few years in orthopedic medicine, ac- cording to Dr Deacon, include a vari- ety of new implants, alternate ways of treating diseases, and surgical procedures implementing the arthro- scope, which uses a fiber-optic tele- vision system. Dr Deacon speaks about moving into an area affected strongly by os- teopathy through the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine. "The differences between the medi- cal doctor (MD) and the osteopath are narrowing.," he says. "We still JiM McCUTCHEON, Managing Agent FOR BROCHURES & INFORMATION CALL 645-3666 ,I OR STOP BY 112 EAST WASHINGTON ST., LEWlSBURG I have a difference in philosophy, but as far as care and knowledge, we are getting much closer to each other." Dr Deacon was born in Scranton, Pennsylvanio, and grew up between Boston and Cap Cod, Massachu- setts. He graduated from Hold- erness Preparatory School in Ply- mouth, New Hampshire, and did his undergraduate work at the United States Air Force Academy in Colo- rado Springs, Colorado. For four years he flew F-4 phan- tom jets in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War '1 flew mostly out of Thailand into North Vietnam and Laos," he says. He then did graduate studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Tech- nology, earning a master's degree in solid state physics. He was an as- sistant professor at the United States Air Force Academy for two years in the Department of Materials Engineering. At that time he entered medical school at Tufts University in Boston, where he received his MD degree. After doing his post-graduate train- ing in San Francisco, he entered pri- vate practice for himself in Red- wood, CaJifornia, where he lived three years, and then practiced in Williston, North Dakota two years before coming to the Greenbrier Val- ley in 1989.

Union Jewelry and Clock Shop By Jonathan Wright Lawrence and Mildred Allen were looking for a good location to open a jewelry shop, a town situated in a wide area not serviced by an exist- ing jeweler. After careful investiga- tion and consideration, they hit on a community that fit their specifica- tions and captured their affection. They chose Union. "1 think these people are the friendliest, nicest people I've ever met," Mrs Allen says. "It's as if they've opened up their arms to us." The couple opened Allen's Jew- elry Shop September 2 on Union's Main Street, still operating their Hin- ton store which they have owned for six years. They now live in Gap Mills and commute regularly to Hinton and Union to conduct the business of both stores. "Response has been very good here," Mr Allen says. "Our custom- ers say they're glad we're here and tell us they are happy to have a place where they can get their jew- elry, clocks, and watches repaired." Mr Allen began his trade as a re- sult of spending time with his former father-in-law in Sandstone, who was an expert jeweler. "1 would watch him fooling with all kinds of watches, clocks, and jewelry---taking them apart and putting them back to- gether. He taught me a lot. I never did learn a whole lot about the de- tailed technology of it all, but I do F Especially when it comes to your tax returns. H&R Block has been providing a quality tax service for 30 years.
