Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

Many of us live alone, and a phone call asking about one's status is most welcome. You are encouraged to make such calls yourself, but our committee has the specific responsibility to do it - and need you to keep us alerted to those in need. Thanks to all for this help!

     Here are the number of a few comrades who would appreciate a call or a visit:

     Charles Boyce - (cell phone) - 304-263-0811

     James Berry - (cell phone) - 540-533-2000

     Ed Reel - (phone) - 304-874-3368

     Bud Robertson - (cell phone) - 540-877-9132

     Also, we learned at press time that Warden Jenkins has been hospitalized with what seems to be a mild stroke. He is in WMC Room 376. Keep him in your prayers.

Raleigh Watson, Chaplain

     Please continue to keep our members in mind, and as you hear of someone who is ill, hospitalized - or in any sort of difficulty - let an officer or the Chaplain/Member Service Committee know about it. We try to keep in touch with those who have particular needs.

Rev. Raleigh Watson
