Why Won't They Play Fair? A children's basketball is 30 inches round and made of In all probability most of the children's sports are being op- erated for the grown - ups. It is my belief that if we, as caring parents, are sitting back twiddling our thumbs saying, "It's just the way things are." we are just as guilty as the rubber and nylon, then filled wrong doer.

Basketball - a worthy indoor athletic sport to teach them effort: the sharing and the~ caring and the depending on! one another.

The lonely child gets a feeling of belonging and being important. The insecure child learns confidence and that somebody really cares Team - mates, coaches, teach- ers, parents and the rest of the school really cares and accepts the child and the team whether they win or lose. And of course there must he cheer- leading squads to lead the cheers of encouragement and pride. Leadership and many other qualities can and often do emerge, then begins another phase of development in a child's individual character. Basketball - a good sport. This children's game bask- etball, for the Summers County fourth, fifth and sixth grade boys is known as the Little League Basketball. As a spect- ator and parent I wonder if perhaps it should be called Little Time Politics? Are strings being pulled? Are grown - ups trying to win no matter what the cost? Is it happening in other sports FOR on caring parents - speak out and let's get busy changing the system." Marhsa Neely Edwards True, West Virginia Letter To The Editor Dear Editor, We read when the communists inspired the idea of water fluoridation, agents of the aluminium company seized upon it with glee, as a means by which they might convert their sodium fluoride surplus into an annual Multi- Million dollar profit by pouring it in drink- ing water down gullible Ameri- cans' throats. Studies show, fluoride destroys calcium in the bones and teeth Too much fluoride causes dental fluorosis ( (mottling of the teeth). Where water with 07p.p.m of fluoride is used dietary fluoride ought not to be used. The United States is the most fluoridated nation in the world. We have the most tooth decay in the world. So statistics show the use of fluoride is not the answer. We consume more white sugar than any other nation. This is the cause which we can avoid in tooth decay. Some people in their 80 years of age have their own teeth. This is living proof we don't need fluoride in Hinton's city victory. Are kids being hurt? Most all little basketball player Johnnies and cheerleader Susies will grow to adolescence. That is the years when grown - ups start asking questions like: "What's wrong with kids these days? .... Why don't they obey their parents?" "Why do they fool around with smoking, alcohol, drugs, and sex?" Grown-ups are quick to tell kids what to do " be fair deer" and how to do it " work hard son" Then mother brags about getting extra groceries, free, because the bag boy made a mistake: Dad laughs about sneaking out from work 30 minutes early. If children were not so confused, they could b~ telling grown - ups, " Yorev actions speak so loudly, I can't hear what you are saying." How did these kids get to be such confused teenagers? What are they in the habit of CHILDREN? Are the games for the kids? Is someone push- water because when they were ing and or scheming for growing up they didn't have fluoride. getting? They want to he with the " In Group" looking for quick success, easy thrills and lots of care - free fun. In short. they want instant gratification. Slow down and realize the meaning of INSTANT GRATIFICATION. Immediate satisfaction - quick pleasure - instant success - easy awards What if they award is given because daddy or mommy, grandpa or grandma, aunt or uncle, cousin or next - door donkey has "helped" to see the child was recognized because they love little Johnny or Susie just so o .. o ... much. Is that real love? Do you give a baby a razor sharp butcher knife The machinery that is used to apply fluoride to drinking water can and does malfunct- ion ! Fluoride is a waste product and it destroys the calcium in our bones and teeth when we have it in drinking water We folks who need calcium should take calcium pills. I take cal- cium Lactate tablets 10 gr. (650) mg. each day. Fluoride has also been shown to affect the thyroid. As a matter of fact, the Merck In- dex, the prime reference, source in pharmaceutical chemistry, ~points out that fluoride was previously used to reduce thyroid activity in patients with an over active thyroid. What about the under active thyroid? Citizens of Hinton we don't need fluoride in our City Water. We urge you 1o go to the Polls May 10, 1983. Pisgah United Methodist.

Dressier 1323 Temple Street Hinton, WV. 25951 I March 29, 1983 Editor Hinton News Second Avenue Hinton. WV 25951 Dear Editor: May the 10th will be a very important date in the lives of the residents of Hinton. That is the date the decision will he made to fluoridate or not fluoridate the drinking water for the city. To thinking because they want it and cry citizens and those concerned for it? I believe a child is to about the health of their work for success, an award should be earned and deserved. Otherwise little Johnny or Susie may end up believing they aren't worth much since daddy had to bargain or buy to get it for me. So, is this child being helped or~hurt? Then there is the child that is consistently SHOWN how to he fair. This child is taught to respect and accept the officials callings - right or wrong. This child is taught to listen to parents, teachers and coaches ( grown - ups) instructions, and to play as a member of an honest team. They set goals for themselves, work hard, play fair, give themselves to team effort, actually play their hearts out, then to he awarded, alas, nothing. Why? Perhaps because their parents aren't among the" Who's Who" in the county or because the judges do not consider them a flashy player - they only held the team together. When this child sees other players with less ability receive public recognition that he knows he deserves , he receives a deep hurt. A hurt that can make him better or bitter. A hurt that can last a lifetime. So, what is wrong with our grown - ups? Why don't they play fair? The systems are probably at fault. Even fair judges can families, there is only one choice. Hinton is one of the. highest populated areas in West: Virginia which does not have fluoridation. Forty years of research has proven fluoride in drinking water to be safe and a major deterant to tooth decay. " According to research, tooth decay can be reduced as much as 65 per cent when accompanied by other approved dental practices such as brushing, flossing and a proper diet. Fluoridation is en- dorsed by the AMA, ADA, APAA, and other major health organizations. If one has questions about the use of fluoride in their drink. ing water, he or she should check with his or her dentist or physician. Much time suffering and expense can be avoided by the use of this inexpensive treatment of the water supply. For better health, vote on" Fluoridation, May 10th. Sincerely, Nornin L.
