"*: Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, July 14, 2016 "Meet PART 2 Southwest Regional 'Adult Education (SRAE) has an outstanding teach- ing staff that is dedicated to , seeing adult learners in the ~,:region achieve success . Last week, as part of a series of articles called ':"Meet Our Teachers," you "" met Jerry Shane Stanley of --Clintwood, who teaches classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Centennial :, Heights in Haysi (from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM) and at the Dickenson Center for Education and Research (DCER) ,in Clintwood '~' (from 5:30 PM to 8:30 "-' PM). *~ I conducted an inter- view with Jerry Stanley , about his experience in adult education. As you read on, you will catch a glimpse of his unique per- spective about his work in Part 2 of last week's article. When asked about "' transformative experiences witnessed in adult educa- *~' tion, Stanley remembered, "On several occasions I 71 have seen students with low self-esteem and belief in their ability literally transform into successful, '1 confident individuals who go on to college or other training opportunities that ~" lead them and their fami- lies to a better quality of life. Although it may sound like a clich6, I have seen adult education change people for the better. More importantly, some adult education opportunities have led DIRECTLY to better jobs almost immedi- ately." ,~. What would Stanley like the public to know "about adult education? He stated, "If a student is truly "dedicated to getting a ~"GED certificate, adult ~,education can provide all ,,the resources, instruction, :,and materials needed for success while understand- Teachers" Jerry Shane Stanley ing that each student has a unique set of needs. Adult education offers students the chance to work at a pace and schedule that will help them maintain their family and work obliga- tions while still moving toward better educational and employment opportu- nities." Issuing an invitation for adult learners to come to his class, Stanley com- mented, "Any person in Dickenson County or the surrounding area has a standing invitation to join the DCER or the Centennial Heights class on any meeting date and time listed. The class is completely free (including materials and any subse- quent testing). All a person has to do is come in the door with a wish to use this educational opportunity to change his or her life. I can personally guarantee that SRAE and I personally will supply any needed resource for that person to be successful as quickly and stress-free as humanly possible. There are also opportunities for those who qualify through WIOA to actually earn cash rewards and mileage reimburse- ments to help with travel Items of Interest... ..w The Southwest :,Virginia Regional Jail -Authority Board meeting will be held at 10:30 a.m., ,, on Tuesday, July 26, 2016, expenses." When asked for addi- tional comments, Stanley concluded, "The thing that I think makes this program successful is its people. Regardless of what area, from the program manager all the way to each instruc- tor, every person involved wants nothing but student success and achievement. It is the only place that I have ever been employed where I feel that every per- son involved has all the qualities that a perspective student could hope to uti- lize." "Among these qualities, I find that empathy may be the greatest. All of our peo- ple seem to understand the unique needs of the adult learner. These folks under- stand adult education and are wise enough to gather the necessary resources, stay current to the evolu- tion of the American work- force, and empathetic enough to care on the most basic and individual level. I cannot explain how it hap- pened, but I am fortunate enough to bear witness to this phenomenon on a daily basis. I am proud to be associated with such a fine group of people."

I remember back years ago when we were told that they was an Ice Age com- ing back to this world and that by the 90's, tempera- tures would probably be 100 below 0 and 75% (per- cent) or more of the people would die from the cold. So, they were doing research. Well, the Ice Age never came. Then we heard, "There's coming an acid rain and it's going to wipe out a lot of people." So, we wasted millions of dollars trying to fight off the acid rain which never came either. Then, all of the sudden, there appeared a hole in the ozone. That's when they had to stop using several makes of the Freon in your automobiles so you can no longer do it yourself. You have to take it to the big garages where they were able to do that and keep that out of the air to slow down the hole in the ozone. I think the research said they could probably stop it up with chicken feathers. Ha ha. But then came Mr. AI Gore and his global warm- ing. Boy, I'm telling you, it was going to be some kind of bad. But it got a name change. I think it is now "climate change." My opinion is all of these things are about research. And research is about money. And money is something they steal from the poor taxpayers to make the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Yes, I'm skeptic. If you believe these fairy tales, you probably still believe in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. They're just as real as all this other philosophy. Why not? Well, here's the rest of the story. This nation has forgot God. And the Bible said that every nation that forgets God will surely be turned into hell. And we are going to see destruction in this country like we've never seen before very soon. And that's not a fairy tale. Virginia residents face a moderate risk of Zika infection Zika Prevention Safety Tips from the Natiol al Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) The Zika virus is trans- mitted by the bite of an infected Aedes Aegypti mosquito. Its most com- mon symptoms are fever, rash, joint pain, conjunc- tivitis (red eyes), muscle pain and headache Pregnant women with Zika risk passing the virus to their unborn child. There have been cases of babies being born with micro- cephaly (a smaller-than- normal head). Here are some simple things you can do to keep you and your family safe this summer. To prevent mosquito bites you should: 1. Wear long-sleeved shirts and pants, and spray clothes with insect repel- lent. 2. Stay in places with air conditioning, and with window and door screens to keep mosquitos outside. 3. Remove standing water to keep mosquitos from laying eggs inside and outside the home. Once a week, empty and scrub vases, pet water bowls, flowerpot saucers, discarded tires, buckets, pool covers, birdbaths, trash cans, and rain barrels. 4. Wear insect repellent containing DEET. Products containing DEET include OFF!, Skintastic, and Cutter. If you are also using sunscreen apply sunscreen first and insect repellant second. 5. Use mosquito netting to cover babies younger than two months old in car- tiers, strollers, or cribs to protect them from mosqui- to bites. 6. Sleep under a mos- quito bed net if air-condi- tioned or screened-in rooms are not available, or if sleeping outdoors. 7. Zika can be transmit- ted sexually by an infected male. To prevent sexual transmission of Zika, use a condom. Your local health department is working to keep you safe this summer.
