REMEMBER THE GOOD OLD DAYS?...This photo is-of St. Paul, circa 1912. It is from Leroy Hilton's collection-and as always, we appreciate his sharing with us! NOTE: Myrtle Hoibrook, Honey Branch, has let us know that the boy on the right in the third row of children (pictured in front of the old Honey Branch School last week's "Remember the Good Old Days" photo) is Arthur Kilgore, who is Jean Kilgore's and Frank Kilgore's father. Next to him is his best friend, W.N. Hoibrook, Myrtle Holbrook's older brother. The friendship of the two extended through military service, and that story is told in the feature article, "Two Mountain Boys Go to War" by Frank Kilgore, in the current issue of Mountain Peeks. Our thanks to Ms. Holbrook and to Jean Kilgore for this information.* AT THE FAIR...This baby miniature horse and his mother were among the featured exhibits at the Russell County Fair. vhoto by veyto Gngo, VDOF tree nurseries seek public's help with acorn & seed collection Virginians can help preserve native tree species by collecting acorns and seeds from nine species and delivering them to the nearest office of the Virginia Department of Forestry (VDOF). "Generally, the best time to collect acorns is the last week in September through the first we- ek of October," said Josh McLaughlin, nursery forester. "Every bag of acorns and seed collected by citizens will help us keep Virginia beautiful." The species most needed are: Black Oak; Chestnut Oak; Chin- ese Chestnut; Northern Red Oak; Pin Oak; Sawtooth Oak; Swamp Chestnut Oak; Swamp White Oak; Willow Oak, and White Oak. "Lawns or paved areas are ideal collections sites," McLaughlin said. "A single tree located in these areas makes identifying the acorns easier." McLaughlin reminds anyone who is interested in collecting acorns or seed to: not use plastic bags to hold the acorns or seed; identify the tree specieS on the non-plastic bag, and to not combine acorn or seed from different tree species in the same bag.

Center On Monday, July 19, 2010, Congress approved a resolution to designate the week of September 13-19, 2010 as Adult Education and Family Literacy i Week. This is a one-time only dedication and opportunity to elevate adult education and family literacy nationwide with policymakers, the media, and the community.

The skills tested in- clude: understanding and apply- ing information; evaluating, " analyzing, and drawing con- - clusions; and expressing ideas and opimons in writing.
