Searle David was the son of King Mal- colm III and Margaret --before Eng- land and Scotland were known as the United Kingdom. As was the custom in 1093, he was sent to the Norman court as a young lad. Twenty years later he married the Earl of Northampton's widow, Ma- tilda, and thus became an English baron. When his brother Alexander I became King, David became Earl of Cumbria. In 1124, he succeeded his brother as King of Scotland and en- gaged in a long battle against King Stephen of England in an attempt to gain the English crown. Fou[teen years later his forces were defeated at the Battle of Standard. The f01- lowing year, 1139, he made peace with England. Although David's attempts to unite England and Scotland under one crown were unsuccessful, he did bring Norman law to Scotland, established the office of Chancellor and began the feudal court system. he was noted for his charities, jus- tice and piety. The latter helped him to found many monasteries through- out his kingdom and to create nu- merous sees of religious jurisdiction under the leadership of a bishop. To his people, King David I was a saint, he died may 24, 1153 at Car- lisle, Scotland, now the county seat of Cumberland in the northwestern region of England. He was 79. The custom of remembering and honoring King David I of Scotland on the day of his death, may 24, placed his name on the church cal- endar both in the Catholic and Prot- estant listings, but David I has never been formally canonized a Saint of the Church. Rowan Home Subject Of Take-Over Proposals The future of the Andrew S. Rowan Home at Sweet Springs is still undecided, according to infor- mation released by the State De- partment of Health. The state owns the Rowan Home which provides housing for the aged. The state de- termined the facility to be redundant earlier this year. Jack McVey, of the Sweet Springs Medical Corporation, has of- fered to enter into a 10-year lease- purchase aqreement at $1.2 million. Mr McVey said his firm would "retain all present employees and current patients and would add a new unit to take in teen-age children with be- havioral disorders." According to information supplied to the State Department of Health, Mr McVey said that the first year of his proposed lease would require no payment from his firm. In the second year, Mr McVey's corporation would begin paying the state $10,000. This arrangement would continue for nine years when the firm would pay $108,000 to buy the property out- right. The Monroe County Commission has also submitted a proposal to the Department of Health. Bill Clark, who submitted the plan for the county commissioners, said the County Commission wants the state to turn over the Rowan Home to the Commission at no cost. In exchange, Mr Clark said, Monroe County would pay the state 50 per cent of any profit it receives from running the facility during the next ten years. Mr Clark said "The Commission would like to receive control of the (adjacent) farm property" so it could be sub-leased to Edward Rep~, a Pennsylvania fruit juice company executive. Mr Clark said Mr Repass wishes to use the spring water avail- able on the farm property to produce bottled juices.

Longanacre / i~ ~Owner...OirectorI Longanacre | i Funeral Home J WHAT IS THE NURSE'S ROLE? The last days in a terminally ill pa- tienrs life present the nurse with one of the greatest, most difficult chal- lenges in her nursing career, accord- ing to nurses Claire Hoffman, Giadys Lipman, and Ella Thompson in their book, "Simplified Nursing?. The nurse, in fact, may well be the person who gives the last comfortingI services to the dying patient and be ai source of great comfort to his or heri family as well. She knows and recognizes the needs of the patient and learns to anticipate his or her requirements for comfqrl (I.e., a change of position, etc.). She is also alert to sense a patient's wish to talk to the clergyman or particular fam- ily members. She is schooled in dealing with the emotional stresses the patient (and family) is undergoing, and like the doc- tor, the clergyman and funeral direc- tor, is a very important member of the care-giving team, Very often she takes special study classes in the care of the very ill for the sake of the patient and her own well-being LONGANACRE FUNERAL HOME Fort Spring, WV 647-4025 II
