4B The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, November 1, 1990 Local Students Homecoming Day at Concord College on October 20, was a day three young women will remem- ber for years to come. At halftime of the Concord football game in Athens, before a crowd estimated at 5,100, Suzie Jarrell of Alderson was crowned 1990 Homecoming Queen. The candidate of the Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority and Pi Kappa Phi fraternity, she was crowned by Concord President Jerry Beasley, assisted by 1989 Homecoming Queen Melissa O'Dell and stu- dent body president Mike Cham- bers. In the crowd to cheer her on was her sister, immediate past president of the student body Nancy Jo Jarrel]. now a Concord alumnus, Suzie was escorted by Danny Mitchem. First runnerup in the queen's court was Katy Lenhart of Scott Depot, the candidate of the Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority and Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity, escorted by Joe Murray. Second rt!nnerup was Dion Stephens of Point Pleasant, whose candidacy was supported by her fellow residents of Wilson Residence Hail, along with the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity. She was escorted by TKE mem- ber Charles Gwinn. The day was more memorable in light of a Concord's 53-13 win over Glenville State College in the football contest, The victory, along with other weekend results in the West Virginia Conference, gave Concord the state confer- ence football title for 1990. The coronation took place under picture-perfect blue skies with temperatures in the mid- 50s. The campaigns had been waged with fervor during Home- coming Week, with supporters trying to outdo each other in "lip-sync" contests, floats and banners during a Thursday night parade through Athens, and in campaign displays along the'sidewalks of campus. Voting by the student body took place on Thursday and Friday October 18 and 19. Ms Jarrell is the daughter of Homer darrell and Nancy Montgomery. She is a senior ma- joring in Psychology and Sociol- ogy at Concord.

F,. 9 AM- a pu: 645-3121 Lewisburg, WV 24901 Sat. 9AM. 6PM Our social studies classes at White Sulphur Springs Junior High were upset and offended by a recent "A Current Affair" pro- gram which misrepresented West Virginia students and our state. Unfair characterizations were made. In response to this, we have sent the following letters to the program. Dear Current Affair: I think it was wrong for you to say West Virginlans all worked in coal mines, and smoke. Thats not true. Just because one per- son you interviewed was from West Virginia, and because he smoked, that doesn't mean you have to make a comment about the rest of us. Not everyone in West Virginia smokes, and so what ff we work in coal mines. Yes, some of us do. Thats Just because its what we chose to do. West Virginia is not made up of people that work in coal mines, or people that smoke. West Vir- ginia is a quiet, peaceful, and beautiful place. The crime rate is low and the people are sweet. West Virginia should not have been degraded on T.V., and I think you owe all of us an apol- ogy! Thank You For Your Time, Heather Dowdy A 9th grade student of White Sulphur Springs Junior High School Dear "A Current Affair," The way you portrayed West Vlrg|nlans as smoking, tobacco chewing, illiterate, coal mining idiots is not true as far as most West Virginlans are concerned. Your show portrayed "Pee Wee" as a prime example of every West Virginian youth. "Pee Wee" does have many problems but that doesn't mean that youth in WV has problems like that. Most people in WV are well-educated scholars of learning and most are working their way to that level. We admit some aren't as educated as others but neither are thousands of other Ameri- cans. We especially disliked your words, and I wrote "you son of a ..... West Virginian," end quote. You mentioned the bad points (which most are wrong or exag- gerated) and you are forgetting the good points. West Virginia has a lowest crime and drug rate in the United States. Also, it has beautiful mountains, wildlife. ~trees, and rivers.

Rowan Memorial Home to private ownership. Bill Wallace, speaking on the floor of the#louse Of Delegates, February 17 and 18, 1990: + "Folks, we might as well be building a 50-mile-wide highway.., for the net effect that this is going to have, the effect that it is going to have on the commu- nity. There are no other jobs! It's not like living in Charleston, or Huntington, or Wheeling. You can't go to the next block, the next corner, and apply for a job. And we talk about transferring these workers to different facilities. Yet, most of these folks.., have payment books this thick that root them to that area. We talk about savings. Keep in mind the cost that this is going to bring in terms of unemploy- ment benefits and public assistance. Some of these folks who are now working will end up on welfare rolls .... "But, most importantly, let's remember the patients. They don't like to be called 'patients,' they are clients or residents--because this is their home. And when we talk about moving them to other facilities, I want you to imagine the scene when we place some of these people in a wheelchair and head them for the front door. Imagine what that will be like .... , "Ladies and gentlemen, there seems to be only one thing left to say. Now, we have heard about the frustration of the workers at these facilities, how they have labored hard, and they have worked under conditions and jobs that I would not want. And the folks at the Greenbrier Center want you to know that they are very proud that this time they have received the highest rating that they have ever received in their Medicaid certification. They are very proud of that. And you have heard about the devastation of a rural community, which maybe you folks who live in cities just don't understand. And you have heard about the fear of the residents at these facilities.., who fear being moved out of the only place that (they know) as home. "So, as you vote on this bill today, and after you leave the chamber, I hope that you will please ask yourself this question: Who will it be next year? Who will it be next year?..."
