'We the pie,' Not 'We the Everyone agrees that stress is miserable. It drains our mental and physical energy, leads to unhappy relationships and workplaces and generally makes us want to run for the hills. What few people realize is that stress is like a hitchhiker with its thumb out. You can choose to pick it up and carry it on your back until you drop or you can choose to drive by and leave it standing in the road. What makes us "pick up" one stress and not another? Why do each of us respond differently to the same stressor? How do some people seem to have no trouble at all with stress? How can we escape all the misery that stress causes in every aspect of our lives? The answers to these questions and the basics of stress management and success in relationships, health and finances are topics that will be covered in an upcoming "Language of Bliss Fall Retreat (for Women of Spark and Mettle). The all-day fun interactive workshop will be led by Abundant Life Coach, Katie Gwinn on Saturday, November 3rd. Ms Gwinn operates her home- based business, "Your Abundant Life", in Lewisburg, West Virginia, working with individual clients and students and doing group workshops, inspirational talks and business consulting. The motto of her business is "Change your mind to change your life." At the Language of Bliss Fall Retreat Ms. Gwinn will present ways to pass by "Public Enemy Number One" every time you go out on the road of life. "All of us are born with the knowledge and power to create and experience joy in our lives. We just need reminders sometimes", says Ms. Gwinn, "and that's the purpose of the Retreat-- to remember our creative power as women and practice ways of keeping our lives virtually stress-free."

LOOKING FOR CLASSMATES The Hinton High School Class of 1973 is planning a reunion next year and is looking for current address of these classmates: Richard Lee Ayers, Randall Cox, Maxine Ford, JoAnn Gross, Mary Sue Harvey, Judy Meadows Lilly, Henry Pack, Phyllis Pack, Jerry Parker, Brenda Ramsey, Eugene By Senator Joe Manehin From time to time, it's refreshing to turn down all the political noise and think about what brings us together. This week, I had the good fortune to have one of those opportunities, when I celebrated "Constitution Day" with a visit to Shepherd University and the Robert C. Byrd Center for Legislative Studies. It was the perfect place to be because it was at Shepherd University that Senator Byrd gave the inaugural "Constitution Day" address in 2005. In the years since, the Center and the University have continued the tradition of "Constitution Day" lectures so that generation after generation of West Virginians can understand and appreciate what a masterpiece the United States Constitution is. Senator Byrd wrote the law that created "Constitution Day" - to be celebrated every September 17, the anni o~.oary of t~ho "miracle in Philadelphia," the signing of the Constitution in 1787. He often said that our freedom is "set forth and realized" in our Constitution. And for that reason, he felt it was vital that every American study it, honor it, and revere it. Few Americans studied, honored and revered the Constitution the way Senator Byrd did. As most West Virginians know, he always kept a copy of the Constitution in his coat pocket. It was easy to reach for quick reference, which he often did, even in the middle of debates on the floor of the United States Senate. But in his coat pocket, the Constitution also was close to his heart, right where it belonged. Senator Byrd had two great loves - the United States Senate and the State of West Virginia. But his two great passions were his wife - "fair" Erma, he called her - and the United States Constitution, the document from which this great country sprang. The 9/11 terrorist attacks and our country's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were in Senator Byrd's thoughts when he delivered his Saturday, November3rd, andwillbe Robinson, KarenShumate, Dwayne inaugural "Constitution Day" hosted by Kathy King, owner of the ~roith, BillSpangler, Dale(Ronald) address.

The Inn is located at the intersection of Highways 219 S. and 63 N. in downtown Ronceverte. Registration is at 9:30am and the first dynamic session begins at 10 a.m.i The theme of this exciting women's retreat is "Using Words to Create the Life We Want". Ms Gwinn teaches specific strategies and offers valuable life tools as she reminds us how we can use our native "language of bliss" to create the success and happiness we desire in all areas of our lives. The first session, called "Rewrite the Script in Relationships" addresses how we can change the way we think about and speak to our friends and loved ones to create happy, fun, satisfying relationships. After Session One, a catered lunch will be served by Ms, King, of the :Inn and co-owner of the Edgarton Cafe in Bakery (www'edgart ncafeandbakery'c m)' also it R0nceverte. She and her sistbr, Belinda Bostik, will be pre[~aring delicious homemade selections with all natural and organic ingredients to delight the Retreaters. Lunch includes sandwich or wrap of choice, two salads, dessert, and hot or iced beverages, including hot mulled cider in honor of the Fall season. After this delightful gourmet lunch, Session Two, called "Your Body and the Biochemistry of Thought", presents proven scientific concepts of how our thinking effects the health of every cell in our bodies, for better or for worse, and can either lead us to illness or good health. After Session Two, there will be an afternoon snack of homemade trail mix and beverages. Session Three, "Word' Your Way to Wealth & Prosperity", introduces powerful concepts about using new thoughts and beliefs to create abundant prosperity in our lives and workplaces with less effort than the traditional "work" ethic would have us believe. All three sessions will include introductory and cutting-edge information provided by Ms. Gwinn and then Retreaters are invited to help write and perform skits, dialogues and scenarios that demonstrate the concepts presented. Questions and answers and lively discussion will be encouraged. The Retreat will conclude with a group celebration and adjourn at 4:30. Yancey, Jessie McKinney.
