IOA The Mountain Messenger, Tuesday, March 20, 1990 Mary_ ._Comnton Wants Re-elected A first year veteran of the West Virginia Legislature, Delegate Mary Pearl Compton (D-Monroe) has filed for re-election in the May Demo- cratic Primary. Mrs Compton. a 33-year resident of Union, has fought this session for her Monroe and Summers County constituents on issues including groundwater protection and the pro- posed closing of Andrew S. Rowan Memorial Home. 1 am doing all that I can to keep the Andrew S. Rowan Home open. For weeks, i've been on the cham- ber floor explaining to my compan- What?

Now that the Legislature has voted to permit the sale of the Rowan Home, we are exploring all other available avenues to keep it open as a personal care home. An abrupt decision to close it could severely limit our county eco- nomically." Mrs Compton, a supporter of en- vironmental issues, is also working for passage of groundwater protec- tion legislation, including the ground- water bills under consideration by the Legislature. Three water compa- nies, Quibelt, Nu-Mint Springs and Sweet Springs Valley Water Com- pany take their water from springs in Monroe County. "The purity of the natural re- sources in southeastern West Vir- ginia is rare compared to other ar- eas in the state and throughout the nation, and as such it must be pre- served," Mrs Compton said.

"Adding Moncove Lake, which of- fers camping, swimming, picnicing, fishing, canoeing and other recrea- tional facilities, to the state park sys- tem will be a giant step toward at- tracting tourism, with its boosts to the local economy and the scenic splendors of Monroe County," Mrs Co mpton said. The 21st District Delegate serves on the House Education Committee, which considers such measures as funding for education and the Higher Education Sub-committee and In- terim Committee. Mrs Compton also chairs the Public Education Sub- committee which is researching ways to increase teacher salaries and improve the quality of public education. Mrs Compton has a bachelor's degree in education and a master's in elementary education. She has taught elementary and junior high school, and established a special education program in Monroe County. She has also served as an elementary principal, as well as a graduate professor for West Virginia University and the College of Gradu- ate Studies. Cross Extends The Lewisburg Chapter of Ameri- can Red Cross wishes to salute and thank the men and women of the Lewisburg United Methodist Church, and the Lions Club members who supported and helped make the blood mobile visit at the Old Stone D REBATE Presbyterian Church March 2, a success. Eighty-one pints of blood were collected. This was the first time the Methodist Church members had been in charge of the blood mobile on their own and they did a great job. The Red Cross wishes to personally thank Thelma Berkley and John Garnett, for taking charge of organizing and calling prospective donors, and to Kathy Trout for ar- ranging for the nursing staff to take medical histories. In Priscilla M Small Things Trigger Memories Of Childhood Many of the things we enjoyed doing with our parents, grandpar- ents or favorite aunts or uncles when we were little stay with us the rest of our lives. We remember not only special occasions and adventures but also many simple things they did with us and little practical things they taught US. No matter how many years have gone by, certain sights, sounds, odors, or actions will trigger these memories and warm our hearts. An old lady in a nursing home was telling me that she remembers when her mother taught her how to make "hospital corner~" when mak- ing a bed, and you should have seen the smile on her face as she remembered --- 1 had just turned 6, and we were at our summer place and there were a lot of beds to make!" One of my friends remembers, everytime he wears a suit, his father teaching him, when they were sitting down in their church pew on Sun- day, to pull up on the knees of his good trousers so the crease would stay in. Just getting a suit out of the closet brings back memories of Sun- day mornings of long ago. And ev- ery time he sits down on the train, when he travels, he adjusts the knees of his trousers and smiles to himself. I remember my mother every time I sew. When I was about 5, she taught me the easy way to make a knot at .the end of the thread. When I mastered it I was so proud! My aunt was a sculptor, and ev- ery time I smell modeling clay I re- member the many times she gave me a big lump of clay and let me work alongside her in her studio. Another friend told me that every Sunday when he picks up the paper he thinks of his father and how they used to walk to the corner store to- gether to buy the Sunday paper. I give these examples to remind us all that some of the simplest things we enjoy doing dren, and the little them, can give them ure.
