2A The Mountain Messenger, Thursday May 31, 1990 Homes... Continued from Pg. 1-A Courtney Drive, incorporates a 1o(; cabin of the 1769-1782 period. The logs have been exposed and the one-room cabin now serves as a dining room. The front portion of the present house, constructed in the early 19th century (c. 1831), is used as a living room. Mrs Potterfield is a weaver. A variety of her attractive handwoven fabrics are present throughout the house, as chair up- holsterings, curtains and table cov- erings. Home of Geoff and Nancy Si- mons -- 317 Church Street is lo- cated in the South Church Street Historic District in Lewisburg. The house and its sister residence, 313 Church Street, are the only identical buildings in the historic district. They were both built by John B. Laing, who was a coal operator during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Both houses are excellent examples of Queen Ann Spindlework style architecture.

Continued fromI-A '1 cannot believe this crowd," Vi- etnam veteran "Sky" King of Louis- ville, Kentucky said. "It gave me goose bumps driving into town." James Gregory, coordinator of the group, said, "This is the type of support we've been waiting ten to twenty years for." "This is wonderful," Jim Johnson of Stanton, North Dakota, said. "These people seem like they really wanted to see us here. It's given us a really warm feeling." "This is definitely the largest non- veteran turnout we've seen since leaving California May 16," B. B. Gregory of Los Angeles said. "We've been talking about Rainelle since we left. We've been showing videotapes of last-year's run to our people, and they all say, 'Are we going through Rainelle this year?'" Students and teachers from Rainelle Elementary/Junior High School lined the western portion of Main Street (U. S. 60) in the early afternoon, while townspeople lined the remaining portion of the highway to Tenth Street, where the motorcy- clists stopped at City Park for a brief rally. The local Veterans of Foreign War Post 4484 auxiliary served sup- per to the group. Many spent the night at East Rainelle Elementary School, while others camped at City Park. "It's a great thing," Lavina Wilkin- son, a student at Rainelle Junior 'High School said, "because they picked Rainelle to come through." "It's one of the greatest events that's happened in Rainetle for a long time," Allison Rider, also a Rainefle student, said. Denise Wuttke, who is married to Vietnam veteran Paul Wuttke, is Kansas City coordinator of the Run for the Wall. "This is overwhelming," she said, "just !ike last year. I am particularly impressed with the people of Rainelle because they don't look down on our veterans just because they have long hair, ride motorcycles, and wear leather jack- ets. No one seems prejudiced here." "The main reason I'm involved in this effort," Mrs Wuttke added, "is because I don't want my daughter's generation left behind and forgotten by the government, like these POW's [prisoners of war] and MIA's [missing in action] have been. The government would like to sweep our people under the carpet, They've lied to us about what they're doing to locate our men. This support here in Rainelle is terrific, and I want to express to all of them how much we appreciate it." Bonnie Robinson of Rupert com- mented, "Our POW's belong home. The government people aren't doing a thing about it--there's a lot of talk, but that's all. These veterans went over there because they were doing what they could to help. They paid a price. Now they belong home." "For the longest time Vietnam veterans were left out of everything," Ruth Bennett of Rainelle said. "It's wonderful they're getting recognition like this now." Mrs Bennett's husband Charles added, "Events like this are helping to keep patriotism alive in America. We love these guys." B.R.
