River and its adjacent vet- as provide an exceptionally for fish and wildlife, makes it a recreational won- :1. There are spectacular r Spelunkers to explore, na- hike and wild animals to watch, such as whitetail deer, river otter and the nearly extinct pere- grine falcon. The variety and quality of the fish that inhabit the Green- brier makes it a fisherman's para- dise. The northern streams of its branches are stocked in the spring with several varieties of trout. And an ample population of trophy smallmouth bass propagate in the ideal habitat of stone ledges and boulders of the central region. The prized walleye pike may be caught in the deeper pools, but the scrappy rock bass is found very abundantly the entire length of the river. The large fish live in the lower section of the river, where largemouth bass, spotted bass and channel catfish may be caught. Visitors to the area of the Green- brier will find it be a beauty for all seasons and for people of all ages. The spring season gives birth to splendid arrays of wild flowers and flowering bushes followed by the lush verdancy of summer and the flaming brilliance of fall, as the leaves of the hardwood trees change to variegated shades of red and gold. The River is not normally deep and does not have swift cur- rents but does have enough stretches of gentle whitewater to make canoeing an exciting adven- ture. r Wolfe Won't do something about State Senator Jay reaction to the inaction of Governor Gaston in the drive to control out- garbage being dumped in the desk of Congressman Harley Staggers U. S. Representative Harley Staggers Jr. (D-W.Va.), said the Bush Administration has promised there will be no cuts in medical serv- ices at Veterans Administration (VA) hospitals in West Virginia. A subcommittee chairman of the House Veterans' Affairs Committee, Mr Staggers questioned Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Ed- ward Derwinski about rumored 10 per cent cuts for VA hospitals, dur- ing a committee hearing on the Administration's proposed Fiscal Year 1991 budget. "Secretary Derwinski and his staff gave an on-the-record promise that there will be no cuts in medical serv- ices at the Martinsburg, Clarksburg, or Beckley VA hospitals. That prom- ise will be important for West Vir- ginia veterans who rely on VA hospi- tals in West Virginia," said Mr Stag- gers. The Second District congress- man said he views Secretary Derwinskrs promise as a baseline from which to work, with more fund- ing needed to undo an erosion in medical services. "An erosion," said Mr Staggers, "caused by the previ- ous administration misleading Con- gress on funding needs." Mr Staggers, who chairs the House panel which oversees veter- ans' housing programs and the na- tional cemetery system, told Secre- tary Derwinski that the administration's proposals for VA housing and memorials are unac- ceptable. "The administration is crying the 'sky is falling,' even though my com- mittee enacted reforms to strengthen the VA housing program last year.
