Members of the Executive Com- mitte of Concerned Nurses of West Virginia (CNWV) met for February with Twyla Wallace RN presiding. Catherine Relihan RN, Chairman of the Legislative Committee, re- ported on a bill in the WV Legisla- ture which would allow school nurses to receive credit for their nursing experience instead of only education-related experience. It was also reported that letters have been sent to the newly appointed mem- bers of the state legislature inform- ing them of the concerns of CNWV as an organization of registered nurses and licensed practical nurses from all over the state. Mrs Wallace informed the com- mittee that Senator Byrd had replied to letters seeking funds for all four levels of nursing education instead of only college programs. The de- tailed information verified that fed- eral funds are available to all pro- grams as well as to individuals seek- ing financial aid for nursing educa- tion. This information was made available by Mrs Wallace to hig'h- school counselors at Greenbrier East and Greenbrier West, as well as to other agencies which might benefit. A letter was read from the Louisi- ana Association of Diploma Regis- tered Nursed to the Federation for Accessible Nursing Education and Licensure (FANEL), of which Twyla Wallace is president. The letter seeks support to prevent the pas- sage of a bill in Louisiana which would close vocational schools for LPNs.

LL 1989 EAGLE SUMMIT DL The Mountain Messenger, Tuesday, March 6, "990 5B an ii in an Priscilla Maren I've seen: "He only stayed a little while, but if ~ close my eyes, I can see treat snowman with his knitted nat, and his mustache, and my mother mak- ing his ears, and my brother tnrcw- ing snowballs.., against the wall of our house." The third book. Katy and the'Big Snow by Virg nia Lee Burton, Houghton Mifflin Co.. 1943. may be remembered by some of you par- ents and grandparents. It's a fasci- nating book to pore over after the lively story of "Katy," the caterpillar tractor, has been read. The ~l}ustra- t~ons are beautifully detailed and full of information about what goes on in a small city or town, as welt as about trucks, bulldozers, etc. It doesn't matter that the book was written 43 years ago; the information is stlll pertinent and captivating for children of all ages. Something To Do After it has snowed why not go outdoors with your children and build a snowman, or a snow woman, or a snow animal? Pack some snow into a lump or ball about a foot across. Then roll it. As it roils, it will pick up layers of snow that will make it grow bigger and bigger. Soon you may need several people to help roll it. When it is big enough to satisfy- you, you can shape Jt any way you. want. You can rol other smaller balls of snow to add to it. Listen to. your children's ideas and use your imagination, too. . Something To Make On a cold winter night, pour some fruit juice =nto an ice cube tray. Let your child put a popsicle stick or tinkertoy stick into each compart- ment of the tray. Before the child goes to bed, set the tray outside, on a porch or windowsill. In the morning there will be a tray full of popsicles. ready to eat. Making The Most Of A Snowfall There are those of us who hope it will snow and there are those who hope it won't, But almost all children are thrilled by snow; within just a few hours it completely transforms the outdoor world. While the snowflakes are falling, children enjoy watching them whirl and drift down. They like to feel the feathery softness of the flakes on their faces when they go outside. They enjoy making tracks in the snow with their boots, and when the snow is deep they like to walk or run along the paths that grown-ups have shoveled. In snowy weather, it's usually too cold to stay outdoors very long. While keeping warm indoors, you can read books about snow to your children that may increase their understanding and pleasure. Here are three that I especially recommend. The first is The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keates, Viking Press, 1962. It tells of a little boy who wakes up to find that snow has fallen during the night. "It covered everything as far as he could see. After breakfast he put on his snow- suit and ran outside." It goes on to tell of his playing in the snow, with beautiful, simple illus- trations. This book is appealing to children even as young as 1-1/2 to 2 years old, as well as to 3-, 4- and 5- year-aids. The second book, for children age 3 to 6, is Yesterday's Snowman by Gall Mack, illustrated by Erik Ble- gvad, Pantheon Books, 1979. In it, a young girl recollects the day she helped build a snowman at nightfall with her mother and brother. The illustrations give a sense of the family's appreciation of one an- other as well as the excitement and fun of playing in the snow. And it treats the melting of the snowman in a better way than any other book iii iii i ii i i1[ WHAT YOU DO IS NEWS TO US (AND ABOUT 50,000 OTHER FOLKS) CONTACT THE MOUNTAIN MESSENGER WITH YOUR NEWS 647-5724 122 North Court Street, Lewisburg, W.Va, 24901 ii BUY THIS NEW 1989 EAGLE SUMMIT "Dr' 4-DOOR For *255.68.
