SheriWs Department appeals to public to contact legislators All Sheriffs' Departments in the Commonwealth of Virginia are targeted for a seven percent reduction in funds in Governor Kaine's proposed budget. Ac- cording to a survey conducted by the Virginia Sheriff's Asso- ciation, this will mean a person- nel reduction of at least 310 deputy sheriff positions state- wide, resulting in the reduction of public safety services across the state. "In Wise County, this will mean the loss of four deputy sheriff positions. The loss of these deputies will affect ser- vices for law enforcement and court services," according to Wise County Sheriff Ronnie Oakes. He continued, "At a time when most Virginians are anxious and concerned about the condition of the economy and the financial woes affecting Wall Street and ultimately their own employers, Virginia cannot afford to add to their burden by making them less safe. "We must continue to pro- vide the level of public safety our citizens deserve and ex- pect," Sheriff Oakes said. "I am asking all citizens of• Wise County and the City of Norton to contact their local legislators and ask that the seven percent reduction proposed by Governor Kaine be restored so that we can continue to function effective- ly.,9 Highway 11 at Country Cabin The Country Cabin, located in Norton on The Crooked Road .

The thyroid gland normally produces two hormones, thyroxine (-1"4) and tfiiodob'Tyronine (T3). Both work to regulate metabolism. The hypothalamus gland sends a signal to the pituitary gland, which then releases thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). The production of T3 and T4 by the thyroid gland depends on the amount of TSH present. Women, especially those over 50 years of age, are more likely to be affected by low thyroid (hypothyroidism), although anyone can develop the condition. Hypothyroidism may occur in response to a variety of causes, including an autoimmune condition, radioiodine therapy, and removal of the thyroid gland. Certain drugs may also cause hypothyroidism, including lithium and amioderone. Levcthyroxine (Levoxyl, Synthroid) is the currently recommended treatment for hypothyroidism. This medication works to maintain sufficient level of thyroid hormone in the body on a daily basis, resulting in improvements in signs and symptoms of the condition, such as fatigue and weight gain. $'1 We Now Carry $1 a Great Selection of $1.00 items! $'1 $1 See us for all your health and beauty needs PUBLIC FAX # 276-762-0213 New arrival Chris and Carol Maples, Castlewood, are, proud to announce the birth of a daughter, Hailey Faith, on September 10 at Johnston Memorial Hospital, Abingdon.

In 2006, heating equipment was involved in an estimated 64,100 U.S. home structure fires, 540 civilian deaths, 1,400 civilian injuries, and $943 mil- lion in direct property damage. The peak months for home heating fires are December, January, and February.
