2A The Mountain Messenger, Thursday April 19, 1990 Vietnam Vets... Continued from page 1 -A them," Mr Walker said. "The police will radio the news as to when they're coming so the elementary and junior high students can be let out to line up along the highway," After proceding through town, group members will camp out at the city park or at East Rainelle School. VFW auxiliary members will serve supper to them at the VFW Hall. Mr Walker reflected on the group's visit last year and their moti- vation for coming again this year. "They said we were the most patri- otic community along the entire way between California and Washing- ton," he remarked, "and they wanted to stay overnight this year to get ac- quainted wilh some of our citizens. We're reaity looking forward to it. The town has been very cooperative with us on getting things organ- ized--they're putting up all the flags for us." Mr Walker, owner of Walker's Furniture Store and a member of the VFW and Town Council, is a veteran of World War II. He served ~in the Army's Eleventh Armored Division in Europe. He has held a number of local, district, and state offices in the VFW. .Rent To Own At 645-STAR O00000 O00000000000000000000000000 " April Specials ."

The vote supports the November 21 decision by the Lewisburg City Council to re-zone the east 40 per cent of the 34-acre plot as commer- cial. A group of eight businessmen, most from Greenbrier County, pro- poses to build a commercial-resi- dential complex named "Seneca Park" on the site, which fronts U. S. 219 across from Bill Lewis Motors and the State Police headquarters. Citizens concerned about the plans gathered enough signatures, ap- proximately 350, in December and January to have a referendum called. The petition was submitted to city officials January 19. City recorder Pat Pennington said approximately 45 per cent of the city's registered voters partici- pated in the election, a total of nearly 800. "Normally only 100 to 200 wilt turn out for special city elec- tions like this," she said. Malcomb McDaniel, one of the developers, said, "1 feel the people of Lewisburg have spoken. We cer- tainty had hoped they would react as they did" : Mayor Phil Gainer, who was in favor of the re-zoning, said, "The re- sults were pretty much as I had per- ceived the sentiments of the voters to be. It appeared beforehand that the vast majority of people were in favor of the re-zoning. It was inter- esting to note there were fewer people who voted against it than the number of those who signed the pe- tition." The ordinance effecting the re- zoning stipulates the developers must first build a primary access road through the property from U. S. 219 to Fairview Road before any building permits will be issued. Mr McDaniel said his group hopes to begin work on the road within the next 60 days. The initial phase of the construction will include a drug store, grocery store, and a variety of shops, he said. Later phases will include a res- taurant, medical and professional facilities, town houses, and "garden apartments." The entire project is expected to cost about $12 million and will be built over a period of up to ten years.

Each of these cells has a specific job. They help us with awareness, judgment, memory and reason. They are the link to the vibrations of our five senses. They control our motor skills, our vital organs, glands, and their secretions. In all, they are the circuits for the emotional, mental and physical state of our bodies. Our nerve cells receive and send messages. Everything we do -- eat, feel, hear, say, see, and touch af- fects us. Whether we realize it or not our sensors pick up the vibrations, all of them. The part of us that is most immediately affected is our di- gestive tract. When all is well, every- thing runs smoothly. We feet good. During these wonderful times, we still need to monitor ourselves for even a bad thought will cause a health change. Our stomach is al- ways the first to send out a clue and we need to be prepared to make ad- justments to avoid an acute or, even worse, a chronic problem. Stomachic herbs affect the diges- tive tract. Their properties strengthen, stimulate or tone the stomach. There are at least 65 herbs in this category. Many of them are our everyday culinary herbs which perhaps we take for granted like anise, basil, caraway, cardomon and peppermint Simply for gas and indigestion alone over 50 helpful herbs are available. Then there are excellent herbs for acid stomach like fennel or sour stomach like burnet, camomile, nutmeg and white willow. For hemorrhaging cypress, sorrel, shepherd's purse, witch hazel, wild alum root and red raspberry give excellent results. Slippery elm and red clover have more than proven to be very beneficial for cancers while angelica is a wonderful toner and wild marjoram oftentimes called Oregano, Origanum vulgare (labia- tae) is a great stomach strengthener besides berg a primary pizza en- hancer.
