                                     Remember, everything
                                     doesn’t work for every-
                                     one…Different remedies
                                     for different people
                                     We all know that regular
                                     exercise helps us cope with
                                     pain. It's especially effec-
                                     tive for people with mi-
                                     graine. Some even find that
                                     mild exercise during a mi-
                                     graine helps alleviate the
                                     pain. Remember, though –
                                     ease into it! Sudden
                                     changes can make your mi-
                                     graine worse, and that isn't
                                     what we're going for here!

                    (By Quindora Dobbins)                                        ...there is a bad case of “Drama ” in our Police Dept.?

A young woman was running for her life she had                                        ...Common sense has went out the door when
unintentionally witnessed a drug deal gone bad. She                                           the Police car got “nailed”!
heard names and saw several people killed. She was
then discovered because the noise she made. She ran
and several men chased after her. Later she had                                 ...the boundaries in Clendenin could be getting smaller!
made her way from the city to the country where
she was hurrying up a rock path on mountain's edge                                     ...background checks have been overlooked.
where suddenly a closed door appeared in front of her. Having no choice
she stopped with bewilderment and stood in disbelief. If she went back
they would surely catch her, so she stood there contemplating as to what     ...people could be left in the cold if their house is condemned
she should do. Her mind took her back to her youth and how her grand-                by the town of Clendenin’s councilman Shelton.
mother took her to Sunday School and church three times a week and
how she truly believed in God. At that time in her life she cast her every
care on Him for she knew He cared for her. Later she had become an
atheist, no longer believing in God. Suddenly she felt her cold heart melt
as she recalled her close walk with her Lord. She recalled the scripture
in Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man
hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him and will sup
with him, and he with me. She heard a knock at the door and heard
someone call her name from the other side. Quickly she felt true sorrow
for her sins, fell to her knees and ask God to come into her heart. She
said I open the door of my heart to you God in Jesus' name. As she                                                             304-341-0889
spoke these words she saw the door open and arose and passed through
and it closed behind her. The men came and they saw only a stone wall
blocking the way and her purse lying on the path. They returned to the
city assuming she had fallen to her death. God held her in His hand all
the days of her life.

                                       I Am Here
               I was feeling pretty tired by the time I got off work and the drive
home was taking forever. I hadn’t slept very well the night before so keeping my
eyes open was getting harder and harder. The last thing I remembered was lights
coming at me then a jarring crash. I awoke with everyone around my bed with
sad faces and talking in low voices that I couldn’t hear. I figured it must be bad
since all my family was there including my brother from another state. I couldn’t            Angela’s located @ #12 Virginia Ave.,
move and I tried to talk but the tube in my mouth was preventing me from saying              Clendenin, second street after crossing
anything and I was so tired I figured I would talk to them after I slept awhile. I             the Clendenin Bridge on the right
awaken to voices and saw the Doctor talking to my family and they all had wor-
ried looks on their faces. I wanted to ask what was the Doctor saying but the tube
wouldn’t allow me to talk and when I tried to raise my arm it had tubes every-
where and I was afraid of pulling them out, anyway I was so tired I wanted to
sleep, I figured they was giving me medicines for the pain that was causing me to
be so tired. The next time I woke up my husband and my mom was sitting there
and it looked like he hadn’t slept for days. I was wondering why his beard was so
shaggy since he had just shaved that morning, but it looked like he hadn’t shaved
for days. I tried to raise my hand but they must have restrained my hands to keep
me from pulling out my tubes so I just stared at him. He was looking right at me
and came over and I was so glad he knew I wanted him close. He bushed my hair
back and kissed me on the cheek, sat in the chair by my bedside and held my
hand with tears in his eyes. I was starting to get scared and I managed with the
tube in my throat to asked him why he was so sad, but he just stared at me with
the saddest eyes, laid his head on the side of the bed and that is when I couldn’t
concentrate and fell back to sleep. I woke again and my husband was still there,
but he just was so sad it was breaking my heart I managed to asked how long I
had been there, but he must not have heard me and walked over to the window
and was stretching, at that moment I knew I was tired of just lying there and not
able to console my husband and I was determined to get that tube out so I was
determined not to fall back to sleep again. Of course that was the last I remem-
bered until I woke up with voices and there was a room full of my family mem-
bers and my husband was holding my hand. It was like a fog and at that moment I
was starting to get really upset not able to console my husband who at that mo-
ment looked sadder than I had ever seen him in my life. At that very moment all I
wanted to do was to hold my husband and tell him it was okay, and I was deter-
mined to do just that. The pain was excruciating all at once and I thought I would
pass out with it and when the scream came out of my mouth I swore it was com-
ing from someone else. The looks on everyone’s face was pure shock. The Doc-
tor came in and the nurses rushed all the people out of the room. The Doctor re-
moved the tube from my throat and my voice was so raspy and sore it was hard to
talk and I couldn’t figure out why it hurt so badly, because when I talked to my
husband earlier it didn’t. My husband started crying and said thank God you are
back. I was confused and told him I had been there the entire time. My family all
came back in and was hugging me and crying and that is when my husband had
said I had been totally unconscious for a week in a deep coma and they were
starting to think there was no hope for my recovery. The Doctors had told them it
didn’t look good just minutes before I regained consciousness. I asked my hus-
band why he never answered me when I had spoken to him earlier and he told me
I was completely comatose and my eyes never opened and I had never spoke a
word the entire week. I had been somewhere in between life and death and was                     242 So. Pinch Rd., Pinch
watching over the situation and when my husband was so sad and the bond was
so close between us I wasn’t ready to leave the love of my life and I came back to
be with him. The Doctors are amazed and said they have no scientific reason for                  304-965-7238
my recovery, but my husband and I both know it was the power of love. If you
are in my situation never give up hope, love is one of the greatest healers in this
