ON THE VERGE - October 13, 2005
“I believe that together we can make a difference in the
lives of others. By remaining strong in faith and working
together with our neighbors, great things can happen.”
I found this message on the back of a greeting card by
American folk artist, Deb Strain.
This applies to us here in Calhoun County.
Yesterday, I took a picture of the new mayor, former mayor
and our House of Delegates member sharing the honor (and
responsibility) of a contribution to repair the streets in
Grantsville. While listening to their conversation, they
mentioned the co-operative attitude of Houchin Construction in
Arnoldsburg. Billie and Jeff are known for their assistance with
many projects, not only in their area, but in other parts of the
It warms my heart to see the caring that has been shown in
our county in the past few weeks. We all have helped with
donations for the people hurt by the flood.
We all donate to the Food Pantry, which serves the county.
Government officials are cooperating. A business is assisting
the whole county. The Chronicle is sponsoring weather spotting
classes for the county. The Historical Society is pulling
together historic structures from the county for a Historic
Village. This is just what has happened in the last few months.
We are on a roll! In other words, we are on the verge of great
things happening in Calhoun County!
I will say this again, “Accentuate the positive, eliminate
the negative, don’t mess with Mr. In Between”!
I have an appointment to talk to Opal Harris about the
Medicare Drug Program. She will assist me in making my decision
and then I will report the process to you. I am preparing a list
of my prescriptions and the cost per year to take with me.
