Questions. however, remain that I would like to address concern- ing the need -- the "why" -- for such planning. It is extremely important to develop a vision for the future, a consensus for future develop- ment and growth of the City, and to establish goals for the community. We need to be pre- pared for the 1990's and beyond. Planning is essential for future business growth, and prospec- Uve business and industry lead- ers want to know that we have a plan. We need to examine cur- rent zoning to determine that it is adequate for the future. Mr Harley is going to great lengths to involve the commu- nity in the planning process, be- cause this should be a commu- nity plan, not tt/e Mayor's plan or David Harley's plan. The goal is to consolidate our collective vision for the future direction of our city. Preparation of the Strategic Plan will be done quickly to maintain interest and commu- nity support. ,It will not be a drawn-out process. Phase I: Community Analysis, which has already been com- pleted, consisted of reviewing all Spartan Band Rated 'Excellent' The Spartan Marching Band earned Division II excellent rat- Ing during the Greenbrler East High School's band particlpatl6 i In the Eastern United States Regionals of the Marching Bands of American competition on Mountaineer Field in Morgan- town October 19-20. Performing Saturday after- noon, the Spartans outscored all other West Virginia bands in the competition which featured bands from as far north as Maine. west as Tulsa, Okla- homa; and south as North Caro- lina and Kentucky. Other bands of area interest participating included Woodrow Wilson of Beckley which received a Division Ill rating and Federal Hocking of Athens County, Ohio, which placed in the top three in the Novice Class. Federal Hock- ing will be participating In the Greenbrier East Invitation Marching Band Classic on Sat- urday in Spartan Stadium. Jeff Bryant in 'Who's Who' Jeff A. Bryant, instructor of instrumental music at Green- brier East high School, has been selected to be included in the first edition of "Who's Who Among America's Teachers," ac- cording to Charles Carney, prin- cipal. Mr Carney noted that Bryant is among the 24,500 listed teachers from grades K-12 who were selected by one or more former students who them- selves were listed in Who's Who Among American High School Students or The National Dean's List. Mr Bryant has been a mem- ber of the Greenbrier East fac- ulty since 1980 and is the direc- tor of the Spartan Marching Band, Spartan Concert Band, Greenbrier East Symphonic Band, the Greenbrier East Jazz Band, the Spartan Pep Band and the Greenbrier East Indoor Guard. previous applicable studies and reports, community interviews, a "Town Meeting" and review of demographic data from the U. S. Bureau of the Census and the State of West Virginia. Phase II: Alternative develop- ment strategies, now in process, will prepare three possible or al- ternative scenarios for Lewis- burg. Each alternative will ex- plore land use, transportation options, the City can select the particular strategy that best meets the community's vision for its future. A working group of citizens representing various aspects of the community (Chamber of Commerce, Busi- ness, City Council, Planning Commission and community-at- large) will analyze the implica- tions of the three development alternatives. In a workshop forum with the consultant, the working group will discuss pros and cons of each alternative and begin to select the plan features that best meet the city's needs. Based upon alternatives se- lected by the working group, the consultant will prepare a draft plan for final comment and re- finement. The final strategic de- velopment plan will then be pre- pared and a public presentation of the plan will be made by the consultant. This is the third and final phase and should be com- pleted by the first of the year.

Our immune system has weakened and we must give in to the consequences. Reluc- tantly, we must, and always do, because we feel awful. Our nose may be dripping, we may experi- ence chills and fever, and then, to top everything, the joints of our bones ache. In our misery, we ask ourselves, "Why did this happen to me?" Actually, we should rejoice. Our bodies are trying to tell us something very important. Like a little child anx- ious to share his day at school, we should listen. The blood nourishes the nerves of the body which, in turn, sends the impulses to the muscles to make them work. When something goes wrong, the system reacts negatively. This time the clues come in the form of chills, fever, and pain. Many times our colds and flus are a result of "too much." We overtax our bodies by taking in more than we can readily assimilate or eliminate. For a while you can eat anything, but eventually the consequences of "too much" of a wrong combination follows, Our bodies want to get rid of the ex- cess and the simplest way is through the mucous mem- branes. Many times the "too much" protein, sugar and starch does not supply us with enough min- erals and we need minerals to supply food for our nerves. In caring lbr or preventing flu vi- ruses, foods containing the min- erals copper, gold, and silver are most important. Comfrey, dan- delion, garlic, lemons -- germs cannot live in lemon juice, on- Ions. neltles and even bamboo shoots are all good natural foods that will cleanse the blood clean and nourish the system. Bamboo, bamb~usa amndinacea, from the Gramin- eae, grass family is the most widely known bamboo variety. From the long, thick and jointed root system several round, Jointed stalks will grow to a height of 10 to 12 feet before other shoots, leaves and flowers form off of these joints. A mature stalk, often half a lbot in diame- ter, is so durable it is used for house framing, furniture and ship masts, Smaller stalks are used to make bamboo fishing poles, canes and musical reed instruments while the young shoots are used as a nutritious food, high in flu preventing, nerve nourishing, minerals. Since the wood of the bamboo never changes color, it is consid- ered protective and lucky. Many Polynesian and southern Asiatic families plant bamboo around their homes to maintain good fortune. Conversely, burning the wood, or crushing the wood to a powder named bamba wood, will end bad fortune. Naturally. like most herbs, if the plant is avail- able a ready supply is always handy to meet the needed occa- sions.
