A major impetus behind the project is the interest of numer- ous area individuals and busi- nesses in beginning a soccer program at the school. In addi- tion to providing money for the grading and seeding of the field, the donors have provided funds to be used for soccer uniforms, balls, goals, coaches' salaries. travel expenses, and other ex- penses. GEHS principal Charles Carney said he hopes the soccer program can be initiated next year at the school. Persons wishing to make do- nations to the soccer program may send them to the Green- brier East Volunteer Soccer Committee, Box 1378, Lewisburg 24901, according to Rusty McDaniel, an organizer of the ef- fort.

Pritt of Hlllsboro, for duty with Service Support Lejeune, North of Pocahon- School at Dun- joined the Marine 1990. Early this a.m. I looked out the picture window in the bath- room. Lo and behold, the stars were all over the skyl Something to be thankful for. So, let your little star shine. Another Thanksgiving Day is here! In America and in the far comers of planet earth, people do have many blessingsl This Thanksgiv- ing weekend there will be many observed and held in Greenbrier County! Fairlea, or should I. say the Fairlea Merchants and Profes- sional Association, has the word out -- "decorate the barn" (the State Fairgrounds barns, that is). I believe our's is Number 5 right across 219 North. The con- versation in our house went this way: "Do you know where the Madonna scenes are?" I have purchased, with the monetary assistance of family and friends, two basic nativity scenes. "Yes." came the reply. "I have them out." Sure enough, up by the old shed near the barnyard\ it looked like everything was out, the giant star Frank made with tinsel and lights was against the wall! By today, hopefully, our barn in Fairlea will be in place for another Thanksgiving bless- ing for all to enjoy who come or go through Fairlea. Last night I again was blessed enough to turn on Channel 9, our public broadcasting station -- WSWP. This November guide pictures "Celebrating 20 years -- Thanks to You" on the front. An- other Thanksgiving blessing. Last night's program --- "Race To Save Planet Earth" -- was a spe- cial one, as Meryl Streep took us once again to Sturbridge Village, Massachusetts, a very famous restoration. It took us to one large farm which has not changed in its ways of farmlp, g, no chemicals, no advancement in farming methods, still produc- ing paying crops, a part of the State Officially Joining the trend throughout the country, a policy was an- nounced today to establish pro- cedures to "... ensure the right to a healthful, smoke-free envi- ronment for each State employee and the public as they transact business with or receive service from the State. Recent studies on the effects of passive smoke inhalation by non-smokers con- clude that exposure to second- hand smoke can be hamfful to one's health. The working envi- ronment should present no un- necessary risk of physical harm or discomfort from environ- mental tobacco smoke," said TaunJa Willis Miller, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Resources. In explaining the policy which becomes effective December 1, Secretary of the Department of Administration Chuck Polan said, "The smoking restrictions apply to state employees while they are on the job, and property owned or used for state busi- ness, with some exceptions." Those exceptions include resi- dents of state prisons and hospi- tals and guests at state parks. Mr Polan sald that offices un- der the control of the Legislative Branch, the Judicial Branch, the Executive Office and the Consti- tutional Offices are excluded from ~the provision, 7~oweyer,"~ he said. "they will be encouraged to review and adopt this or a similar policy." Ms Willis Miller encouraged employees and employers to work together on this issue. "Smoking is an addiction and we need to give our fellow workers support and encouragement as they adhere to this policy." She also noted that conforming to the policy will be easier for some smokers than for others. She said " . . . state-spon- sored smoking cessation pro- grams would be made available and attendance at these smok- ing cessation programs during an employee's normal work hours is considered an appropri- ate use of work time.

CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE A "lions' and Iambs' community" 610 West Main Street in Ronceverte One block east of the library Rev. David C. Harris, pastor WE LOVE VISITORS! The Mountain Messenger,Thursday, November 22, 1990 3A Brier Interiors Now In New Fairlea race to save the planet earth. We haven't used any kind of sprays on our garden for a long time. Of course, our tomatos may not be perfect (as neither you nor I are), but nevertheless they survive! Another blessing on Thanks- giving evening, "Race to Save the Planet Cant'd" continues with "Waste Not, Want Not." Its theme of recycling and being grateful for what we have is certainly an appropriate Thanksgiving mes- sage. Let's pray for all the leaders of the countries of God's Good Earth to practice the golden Rule. Another Thanksgiving blessing. We do have our free choices each and every day. If you feel you don't, that Is also free choice on your part! That is especially true of the men even in Saudi Arabia today. Nobody can stop us from praying, as we are talking to God and only he hears us. Working together for good seems to be the answer. Thanksgiving is a time for thinking of and thanking our friends. They are people who have shared their love for us. Grace Walker, a farmer from near Hinton, brought In a four- page diet which had brought her back to health once more. Indian Currant are my flowers to all -- so beautifully red right now. Thanks to whoever planted it in our yard. Maybe it was some real, honest to gosh Indian as our daughter Ginger dug up Indian beads while planting flow- ers once upon a time! Thomas "Rick" Smith, owner of Brier Interiors, said he is pleased with his new business location in Fairlea. "I've been in this business about five years, and I feel this spot in Fairlea will give us more exposure." The store is located in the north side of the Gadd's IGA Building on U. S. 219 and Includes appliances, custom countertops, carpeting, roofing, siding, and other merchandise. Mr Smith is also a dealer for modular homes and Rusco windows.
