America's foremost storytell- ers will showcase their craft in front of thousands of fans for the 37 th annual National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Ten- nessee's oldest town, the week- end of October 2-4. Produced by the Interna- tional Storytelling Center (ISC), the National Storytelling Fest- ival is the premier platform for professional storytellers. This year's featured per- formers include old favorites like Donald Davis and Kathryn Windham, regional voices like Shelia Kay Adams and Bil Lepp, and international perspectives from Roslyn Bresnick-Perry and Niall de Burca. Festival performances which are all staged under big-top tents scattered across historic Jones- borough, will run from 10 a.m. on Friday through 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. Separate ticketing is available for special concerts such as Ghost Stories (8 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday nights) and Midnight Cabaret, which Bro.

Dubbed "the leading event of its kind in America" by USA Today, the festival has been an American institution since 1973. Today, it attracts audience mem- bers from across the United States who share the simple desire to have someone tell them a well-crafted story. Founder Jimmy Neil Smith has dedicated his career to gaining recognition for story- telling as an art form. For him, the festival is a powerful demon- stration of storytelling's uni- versal appeal. "Most of our lives are increasingly filled with distractions," Smith observes. "Our event offers the rare opportunity to unplug and spend a few days listening to people talk- leisurely and at length - one at a time. Autumn in Ten- nessee provides the perfect backdrop. It's like sitting on the Healthy back to Summer is winding down and thoughts are migrating toward "back to school". Most parents are excited, most kids are not. With the start of school, bad habits that accumulated in the summer will have to change. Some of these are bed times, homework guidelines, eating patterns and hygiene. One of the most important habits for children and adol- escents that are often overlooked is good oral hygiene. Since so many illnesses (like diabetes, heart disease, copd and others) are now being shown to link to oral health, it makes sense to establish healthy patterns while persons are young. These efforts will pay off in an individual's overall health in years to come. Some oral health routines for parents to establish in their chil- dren: 1. Avoid sugar sweetened beverages 2. Avoid sugar laden foods 3.

Commonwealth,s Attorney Brian Patton filed do- cuments in the Russell County Court that alleged Bobby Joe Hawkins had used the property in connection with the illegal distribution of narcotics. The Court issued an Order f'mding that the property was used in connection with Hawkins' ille- gal activities and forfeited the property to the Commonwealth of Virginia. The successful bid- der was an adjacent landowner who won the auction with a bid of $127,000. For over a decade, Russell County has participated in the Forfeited Asset Sharing Pro- gram, which is administered through the Department of Cri- minal Justice Services. Howev- er, this seizure and sale of land was the first of its kind in Russell County. The forfeiture program allows law enforce- ment agencies to seize assets that are either purchased with .proceeds of drug sales or used m connection with illegal drug activities..After the seizure is made, the agencies are permitt- ed to sell the assets and use a substantial portion of the funds for law enforcement purposes in Russell County. In the past Rus- sell County has seized numerous vehicles and money from drug offenders, but this was the first time land has been seized and sold. Brian Patton. Common- COOPER TRENDSETTER SE ALL-SEASON TREAD QUIET RIDE WHITEBLACK SIDEWALL lieve the drug dealers in Russell County have been sent an im- portant notice by this seizure and sale. Not only are you going to be sent to prison, but we are going to seize your money, vehicles and property." Patton further said, "Today's sale served two purposes-to deter people from illegally selling drugs in Russell County, and also to provide law enforcement agencies with more funding to combat our unremitting drug problem." He added, "Our county's drug problem is an epi- demic, spanning every genera- tion, and we, as a community, must aggressively fight this issue." Your ad could be here!

This year's festival features performances by more than more than two dozen storytellers who represent a wide variety of traditions, including folk tales, fairy tales, and ancient legends from across the world. "Our line-up is just as diverse as our audience," says Susan O'Con- nor, Director of Programs, who vets the festival's talent. "Our tellers represent different cul- tures, ethnicities, styles, and geographic regions. The festival is so much more than a showcase of professional talent; it's transformative. Peo- ple go away and understanding how stories can enrich their lives at work, in the community, and even at the dinner table." The National Storytelling Festival is sponsored in part by Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, "the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Tennessee Arts Commission.

The unique technology power washes teeth and replaces tooth brushing and flossing in one step. It offers a high tech solution to an age old problem. Children can benefit from early healthy oral habits that parents can inspire by modeling and establishing a routine.
