From page 3  O --| m/4, JIL If . SIYMMERS COUNTY lanialataua comn0000 WELLN.S i, EVENTS 221 TEMPLE 200-foot tower can be constructed in 48 hours, he stated. I also learned that the Commission on Interstate Cooperation is working on developing the Uniform Domestic Violence Protection Orders Act which would allow for domestic violence protection orders distributed in one state to be recognized uniformly from state to state. They are also drafting legislation which would establish similar standards for all states in the process of deciding custody cases, and would allow for formal agreements between Surrogate mothers and those adopting that child which would waive all surrogate mother rights. Another issue which certainly affects many West V'rginian's is that of all-terrain vehicles(ATVs) operating on public roads. Judiciary Subcommittee A heard reports from various interested parties regarding the regulation of the use of ATVs, and if was stated by representatives from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the West Virginia State Police, that ATVs are not designed, manufactured or intended for use on public streets, roads or highways, nor are they designed to carry guest passengers or be operated while under the influence of alcohol The subcommittee is looking into establishing registration and/or licensing programs for ATVs so that better enforcement and tracking, of those who may violate private property and usage laws can be determined. So, as we usher in this new year, let us reflect on the affairs of our state, as well as the county in our hearts. Have a happy and healthy new year.

JANUARY IS GLAUCOMA AWARENESS MONTH: Glaucoma involves damage to the eye (optic) nerve caused by increased pressure within the eyeball. Pressure increases when tiny pores that normally allow fluid to drain from inside your eye become blocked. Damage to the optic nerve causes your side vision to diminish slowly. Untreated, glaucoma can lead to blindness. Glaucoma tends to run in families and is one of the most common major eye disorders in people Over the age of 60. In fact, the.risk of getting glaucoma increases with age. It can also be triggered or aggravated by some medicines like antihistamines and antispasmodics. Caution: Because the early symptoms can be subtle, it's important to have regular eye examinations. If diagnosed and treated early, chronic glaucoma usually can be controlled with eyedrops, oral medications or surgery. If you have symptoms such as a severe headache or pain in your eye or brow, nausea, blurred vision or rainbows around lights at night, seek immediate evaluation. Treatment may require emergency laser surgery. MEETINGS CANCELLED Fibromyalgia Support Group meetings have been cancelled till March 16th., 2000.

DO YOU BELIEVE YOUR HOME/FARM/ LAND/CAMP/COMMUNITY IS SAFE IN THE =VIEW SHED" OFTHE PROPOSED NEW RIVER PARKWAY? In the September New River Parkway Authority (NRPA) Meeting, Doug Tolbert, Planning Coordinator, defined "view shed" (the area the National Park Service told Fox News they envisioned for the parkway route) as: "The view shed is the area which can be seen from ANY particular viewing place, vista or viewpoint and conversely the areas from which these view points may be seen." "A view shed extends al far as the eye oan see." "Options for protecting view shed, vista, important visual features and other natural, cultural and recreational resources along the preferred alternative 2A/2D and in other areas of the project study area will be discussed in the Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement." The very NRPA definition clearly confirms that your home/farm/land/ camp/community in that "view shed" is not safe from the National Park Service, below the road, above the road, on top of the mountain, on either side of the river or =as far as the eye can see"! 37,000 acres of homes, farms, and communities were taken (and most burned to the ground) by the National Park Service to =protect the view shed" in Cuyahoga Falls (OH)! What will stop the NPS from doing that to Sandstone, Hinton, and other communities all along the 30- mile proposed project route if those communities are =in the view shed, as far as the eye can see"? That just can't happen here, you say? (That's what the people in Cuyahoga Falls and other communities across this great nation have sadly and mistakenly thought, also!) Please, don't wait until it DOES happen here! NRPA defined "view shed," and the National Park Service has stated to the national news media their desire for it! We believe every American citizen and area resident should take a very close "view" of that desire for AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE! Do you really believe they will want the =view shed" only on one-minute portion of the project and only on one small side of New River Road? (As we all know, that is not the only area "as far as the eye can see" along that 30-mile proposed parkway route!) DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE, THEN, THAT YOUR HOME/FARMILANDICAMP/COMMUNITY IS SAFE IN THE REMAINDER OF THAT "VIEW SHED" ALONG THE PROPOSED NEW RIVER PARKWAY? http:/www" newriverfriends'rg _, _, " for the future .
