10A The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, August 16, 1990 Helen Woodward Sornetimes when we think about herbs we think m terms of something delightfully flaw)rful to add to our everyday menu. What wonderful thoughts, for herbs are plants that not only enhance the flavors of foods but, as a bonus, also add value to what we eat. Herbs would not be called herbs if, as generally classified common plants, they did not serve some purpose to our human systems. Dictionaries tell us that plants are refered to as herbs when they contribute a medicinal or seasoning effect. Over many thou. nds of years these effects have overflowed into the cos- metic industry. Many herbs, pre- served as creams, ointments, or salves do have an almost imme- diate and direct influence on ex- ternal problems when used on a regular basis. At the same time added herbal assistance does come from the odtside when the same or other herbs are taken in- ternally to benefit the overall functioning systems of our bod- ies. Unique to Chinese herbal medicine is a catagory consisting entirely of minerals and shells. Since these forms of herbs are now in an inorganic state side effects are not uncommon and care should be used m prepara- hen. These mineral supplements are heavy and therefore hard to digest. Taken in too large quani- ties they cause indigestion and loss of appetite, tn acute condi- tions they will cahn the spirit, treat insomnia, irritability and nervousness when administered properly. Dragon bone (os dra- conis) and oyster shell (ostrea gigas) are considered safe t,o use and extremely effective. Other minerals used are amber (suc- cinum), cinnebar {cmnabaris), flurite (floritum), hematite (haemititum), magnetite (lode- stone), and pearl (pteria margar- itifera). Normally the stones or shells are boiled with other herbs and the liquid is taken m tea form. In Ayurveda medicine the process of "humanizing" these minerals is taken a step further. By repeated incinerations and similar processes, me minerals are purified. These resulting ox- ides are considered safe and non-toxic to the system when taken m small quantities. By learning how to meet our resttul needs perhaps we could avoid this long process of min- eral preparation by just taking a nap once in a while.

By Jonathan Wright A friendship that began in Germany nine years ago contin- ues in Fairlea at Cornerstone Bookstore. Ron Wojieck and Dewey Beckett say times have never been better for their busi- ness. Their recent move to a 4,000-square-foot store in Red Oaks Shopping Center was made necessary by consistent growth during their eight-year- old venture, they say. "We've really been blessed," Mr Wojieck said. "Many busi- nesses take several years to make a profit, but we made money from the first year. We enjoy what we're able to do in this area." It was when Air Force Ser- geant Wojieck and Army Cap- rain Dewey Beckett, Quarter- master Supply Officer, were sta- tioned in Germany at Zweibrucken that the two be- came acquainted. "We met at a banquet and soon became good friends through a Bible study fellowship," Mr Beckett said. "We both had a desire to go into business, and we discussed it frequently with each other," Mr Wojieck said. "We particu- larly wanted to get into a Chris- tian-oriented business if at all possible." After the two left Germany they stayed in touch. "It was about a year after we met that Dewey sent me a cassette tape-- that's how we corresponded-- and said; 'Hey, how about a Christian bookstore?' 1 liked the idea, and we agreed to pray about it. We felt more and more that it was the right thing to do." Mr Beckett grew up in White Sulphur Springs, while Mr Wojieck was raised in Adams, Massachusetts. "Dewey didn't know of a Christian bookstore in his area at the time, although we later discovered that Baldwin's Christian Bookstore was located there," Mr Wojieck said. They had already decided to leave the area, though, so when we made the final decision to open up our business, we came in and filled a need ." After a few months of operat- ing in Neola and then in White Sulphur Springs during the store's first year, 1982, Mr Wojieck and Mr Beckett secured corner store space, now occu- pied by Seneca Jewelers, at Red Oaks Shopping Center in Fairlea. "People received us with a lot of enthusiasm," Mr Wojieck said. In 1985 the store was moved next door to the former offices of C. P. TayloL an optometrist. The new facilities provided the busi- ness added room for inventory expansion. In mid-May of this year, Cor- nerstone moved to its present site. Former occupants were the Factory Outlet Store and Ashley's. "We are now the larg- est Christian book store we know of in West Virginia," Mr Beckett said. "In our first month since moving, we saw a tremendous increase in business," Mr Wojieck added. "People can see us better now that we're back at the front of the shopping center. We're getting a lot of new folks in here, too." "What we're trying to do," Mr Beckett said, "is not only supply churches with their needs, but also create a Christian alternative to what's in the world. We have Christian vide- otapes, n-msic, novels, cards. We feel they are meeting a definite need." The store has tripled its in- ventory of greeting cards and t-shirts. T.he most popular items are music tapes, Bibles, inspira- tional gift items, and books. Videotapes on a variety of Chris- tian topics are available for rental. A rapidly growing item is the vocal accompaniment tape.
