; Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, February 25, 2016 Phlebotomy Tech participant F ' : The following article - - was written by Diane ' Stump of Grundy, a partic- ipant, in the PluggedlnVA , Phlebotomy Technician .. program, which ran from . , January 5, 2015 to August 12, 2015. Part of the PluggedlnVA curriculum is the study of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective -~ People. During the book study, instructor Tummy . Brown uses a movie to :~ illustrate one important concept of the book. :~ Brown comments, "In . Stephen R. Covey's The 7 " Habits of Highly Effective -Peo12Lc_le, Covey uses the term "emotional bank . account" to explain the strength, or weakness, of ,. relationships. Just like with a monetary bank account, implicit in all of the relations we have with others is the .amount of deposits and~or with- drawals we have made. Deposits are made when we spend time with others and offer favors and praise. Withdrawals, on the other hand, are made when we break promises, i" lie, and disappoint. The movie "Fireproof" is the perfect example of how , damaging an abundance of - withdrawals can be in our associations with others. ," More importantly, it illus- ' trates that if a large quan- '". tilT of withdrawals have been made, it takes just as many deposits to repair that bond." Movie Night by Diane Stump As part of our phleboto- ,; my technician program, we take a College Survival Skills class on Monday nights. This is what I like to call the fun night. Karen Gent and Tummy Brown are the instructors. We do English, math, and busi- ness etiquette. About mid- way through the program, we were told that we would be having a movie night. I was intrigued since that isn't a normal thing you do in a classroom. The next Monday night, we had a long table full of food and watched a movie called Fireproof. The movie was about a fire- fighter named Caleb who knew that his marriage was in trouble. When he told his father of his concerns, his father gave him a book called The Love Dare. According to the book's directions, each day Caleb had to do one nice thing for his wife. One of the movie's lessons was to always fight for something you want and never give up. Our instructor, Tummy Brown, showed the movie to provide an example of the emotional bank account, a term we learned from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey. Caleb tried to make deposits into his wife's emotional bank account but became dis- heartened when there was- n't an immediate turn Diane Stump around in his marriage. Because he had made so many past withdrawals, he found that repairing the damage took lots of effort and patience. Watching the movie Fireproof was a nice break from the class routine, but it was also very education- al. Its storyline reiterated what most of us already know; good relationships only come about with effort. Our movie night has been one of my favorite parts of the program because it provided a nice break and a relevant exam- ple. Diane completed her clinical training at Clinch Valley Medical in October and is currently seeking employment as a phleboto- my technician at Pikeville Medical Center.

Jones 762-7963 Well, I was raised on a little farm in Southwest Virginia where my dad was a sharecropper. Back in those days we was the poor of the poorest. That's where I first saw the light of day. But I had a mother and a dad who loved me and I also had a frierid who came by and was a good Samaritan one time. If it had not been for Bill, I would not be here today to in one year before entering Education, at the Wise " to bring the following school.

I remember when he worked for a dollar a day. And a day back then was from daylight to dark. The first three days I can ever remember working for : Join the Arbor Day Foundation in ' March and receive 10 free trees ' The Arbor Day flowering dogwood trees.

I was about 8 L-O-V-E I know our young peo- ple can't relate or believe some of the stories that I share with you but I'm telling you the cold hard facts of life. When I was just a lad, very few people owned an automobile but in those days, you could pass a church and it would be standing room only. The first night I ever spent away from home was with my cousin. That's the first night I can remember not sleeping. When it got dark and we all found a place to lay down, my aunt blew out the light and start- ed praying. It liked to have scared me to death. I said, "Paul, what's the matter with Aunt Beanie? He said "She does this about all the time. She's just praying." I can remember when we and our neighbors divided milk from just one old cow. I can remember when you could go into a home and very quickly you saw a Bible. And it didn't have dust On it either. People who didn't have any money, no transporta- tion and no insurance had to trust God. You know that day may come again if we have enough time left. Now about every house- hold has four cars, some- times only two drivers. God has been so merciful to this country in which we live and now we don't have time for Him. That little 4 letter word called love is swiftly vanishing away. And if I had hope in this life only, I would be of all men most miserable. by planting trees, and add beauty to your ing them an ideal additionyears old.
