They raise championship cattle and pigs and enjoy their honeymoon days in the Maryland countryside. "It was a beautiful place; beautiful land. However, the state (Mary- land) took it away from us to make it into a park. Half of it is jungle now," Captain Gaughen says. "We wanted to stay in the country. So we bought a 360- acre place northeast of BeIAir, Maryland." Mrs Gaughen continues to manage the farm and the Cap- rain continues to go to sea. 1969 -- August -- Captain Martin J. Caughen is master of the SS Alamo Victory. The war in Viet- nam is going full force; Captain Gaughen is regularly plying the oceans of the world, getting needed war materials to south- east Asia. Just out of New Or- leans, one of his ship's boilers goes down and so they moor at Gulfport, Mississippi, for repairs. On board are more than 25,000 tons of the chemical 2-4-5-T (Agent Orange) destined for Viet- nam. August 17, 1969: Hurricane "Camille" thunders onto the Gulf Coast -- bringing death and dev- astation In her path. "We knew for several days it was going to hit us. We got out every mooring line -- 26 pieces of cable. We manned every cable and slacked off." In that killer storm the seas rose 23 feet above normal high tide and the winds crashed ashore at 190 to 200 miles per hour. Captain Gaughen and his men rode out the storm, the ship ran aground and sustained heavy damage, but she was soon refloated and her deadly cargo was intact. Captain Gaughen re- ceived numerous commenda- tions for his "heroic effort in safeguarding his vessel from the forces of Camille." In 1972, Captain Gaughen re- tired from active duty in the'" Merchant Marine. He returned to his beloved Maryland. Shortly af- ter the Captain's retirement they found out a development was The Mountain Messenger,Thursday, September 20, 1990 3A Izaak Walton League To Have Ronceverte River Program The Izaak Walton League of America's West Virginia Save Our Streams Program (SOS) will host a stream monitoring work- shop this September 23 in Ron- ceverte. The West Virginia pro- gram teaches citizens to identify pollution problems, monitor wa- ter quality by surveying stream aquatic life, and take action to protect streams. Started In the panhandle In fall 1989, the save our streams expanded to include hundreds of volunteer partici- pants. Data gathered by volunteers is compiled on the League's com- puter and will be used by the Di- vision of Natural Resources to gain a broader perspective of the ' quality of West Virginia's rivers.

Longanacre 'Owner_Director Longanacre Funeral Home WHAT EMOTIONAL STAGES ARE THERE FOR THE In her widely-read books on death- and-dying, noted psychiatrist Dr. Eli- sabeth Kubler-Ross discusses many perplexing aspects of coping with trminal illness...from the point of view of the patient, the medical profession- als and the families involved. Her studies indicate that the stages of denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance of death are common to most terminally ill patients. Some of these stages are common, too, with the survivors of the de- ceased. Survivors, too, may expen- ence a denial of the death of a loved one. They may also experience an- ger, depression, and, finally, accep- tance - and then begin rebuilding the pieces of family life without the de- ceased. Relatives and friends all interact and find strength in communicating and sharing each other's strong points, thus making the adjustment less diffi- cult and prolonged.
