In the Library December for the Summers County Public Library has been punctuated by headlines - one after another as follows. December 1st. Frank Parker wins $100 bill in library raffle JR Bowles drew Frank's name out of the hat box but Frank has been out of town and does not know yet about his good fortune. The Library cleared $529,00 which was used to pay all expenses connected with The Christmas Homes Tour December 2nd Response to this event was once again overwhelmingl It takes the Friends a year to prepare and they harass almost everyone in the County to get involved. We do owe special thanks to Dave Springston for sketching houses for our brochure, Fox Photographics for printing it, Debbie Cole for painting bricks , The Baptist Youth Group, The Hinter Woman's Club, The Kiwanis Club, the BPW, and the Chamber of Commerce for decorating downtown windows, Mrs. Mary Los Upton for lending antique quilts and Mrs. Lois Wills for letting us display her old clothes. Larry Meador supplied music. Bob Butler in a gorgeous Santa suit greeded people outside the Library until he got too hot and had to return to the North Pole. The Jumping Branch Nimitz Homemakers sewed banners which the Hinton Fire department struggled to put up (and take down). The Home- makers also baked cookies to be served in the Library before the tour. Local newspapers printed stories. The Methodist Church Congregation cooked delicious soups for lunch, decorated their santuary and organized groups to provide music in the Church all afternoon on Dec. 2nd. Almost 90 people agreed to serve as hostesses in each of the homes. The Upper Crust offered dinner. The home owners scrubbed and cleaned and decorated all during Nov. and the City acted as Tour co-sponsor. Behind the scenes 101 Friends of the Library zipped around organizing, working, never complaining. The results: The day was lovely. Between 200 and 300 people came to "tour'. The Library is $2284 richer and the Librarian has yet to find words adequate enough to say Thank You. December Book Sale Now in Progress The tireless Friends of the Library were back on the job Monday December 4Oh., setting up for our annual book sale. The sale is now in its third week and prices have been slashed drastically! Best stop by and see for yourself.

Each bleared Spirit has it's own perfect time u to when it will blommm into it's tall glory. Seeetm' CAFFEINE When you '.'think of the world's most popular drug, what do you think of?. Alcohol? Marijuana? Cocaine? Although it would be difficult to gauge, more than likely you'd be wrong. The world's most popular drug is probably caffeine. It is found in coffee, tea, soft drinks, and choco- late. While occurring naturally in cola nuts, coffee beans, tea leaves, and cocoa beans, caffeine is also added to some foods and beverages for flavor. Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system and causes people to feel alert. It also can increase heart rate, urine production, body tem- perature, sugar levels, and stomach acid secretion. It has been known to decrease appetite, lessen coordina- tion, and cause tremors. Although caffeine may not produce adequate stimulation to prevent sleep, it often lessens the depth of sleep and re- duces REM or dream sleep. For the average American adult, small doses of caffeine do not pose a threat. However, when taken in a large quantity, caffeine can lead to restlessness, diarrhea, and head- aches. Researchershave linkedregu- lar caffeine use to dependence on the drug, complete with withdrawal symptoms when caffiene use is stopped abruptly. To avoid caffiene withdrawal problems, caffiene use should be gradually decreased. While caffeine can produce both dependence and tolerance, it has obtained the status of Generally Recognized As Safe by the Food and Drug Administration. Although you may want to avoid caffeine use be- fore bedtime to improve the quality of your sleep, a moderate amount of caffeine provides only a minimal health risk. This message has been brought to you by Appalachian Regional Healthcare and The Hinton News. People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in cir- cumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them. ---George Bernard Shaw The first newspaper photo- graph was a halftone illustration of a New York Shantytown, which ran in the New York Dally Graphic on March 4, 1880. There is no freer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
