Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, December 4, 2014 Cultural evening in Abingdon On Thursday, October 30, 2014, the PluggedlnVA Crime Scene Technician cohort spent a cultural evening in Abingdon, Virginia. As part of the stu- dents' training in business etiquette, this field trip pro- vided an opportunity for the students to practice many of their newly acquired professional skills. It was a special event hosted by Southwest Regional Adult Education (SRAE) for which students wore their business attire, which had recently been purchased with a clothing allowance provided by the program. The evening's events began with a delicious din- ner at Rain. In preparation for the event, the students had studied table manners and table settings in their business etiquette class. Following dinner, the group traveled down Main Street to visit Abingdon's historic Barter Theatre where the cohort watched Lerner and Lowe's My Fair Lady. My Fair Lady is based on George Bernard Shaw's book Pygmalion and is one of the world's great musicals. The cohort read Pygmalion in class and will write an essay comparing and contrasting the book and the play. Students were definitely impacted by this cultural experience. Roxie Hamilton commented, "I had to read the book Pygmalion so I could com- pare it to the musical My Fair Lady. Watching the characters come to life, performing live on a stage, Barter Trip was breath-taking. In the book, you can only use your imagination to see what it must have been like to live back in that era, but to sit down amongst your class and actually hear the dialect, the singing, and to see the vibrant costumes and the beautiful backdrop transported me to a whole new world. I wouldn't trade that night for any- thing." Claudia Brown remarked, "Seeing My Fair Lady with my crime scene technology class was very enjoyable, and to see the two police officers in my class have a good time at a musical was in itself a treat, knowing the danger- ous job they have. I will look back on my time in this class with fond memo- ties, but the night at the Barter With my classmates is one of my favorites." "The culmination of all we have learned about eti- quette and the business world was the dinner and trip to the Barter Theater," said Jason Banks. "It was an evening filled with laughter and friends, like a very well-dressed family. It was a good way to see everyone outside of a stu- dious atmosphere, which was relaxing and simply a delight." Gladys Ingram summa- rized the experience by saying, "It was the most entertaining and fun-filled day I have had in a long time. It felt as if we were one big family sharing laughter and stories. We, as students, are supposed to thank our instructors and the PluggedInVA program for making our learning experience fun; instead, they rewarded us for just for being students." The class was accompa- nied to dinner and the play by Linda Allen, SRAE Program Manager and instructors Tammy Brown and Karen Gent. The evening was enjoyed by all and was filled with lots of smiles, laughter, and appre- ciation. The students were able to let their profession- al skills shine with confi- dence and ease as a result of the training they have received in PluggedInVA. PluggedlnVA Crime Scene Technician began on May 30, 2014 and will run through December 12, 2014. The culminating event for the program will be a capstone project pres- entation on December 12th at Southwest Virginia Community College.

We have allowed our federal gov- ernment, little by little, to take most all of our tights away from us and they are going after what few we have left. Don't know why we haven't already been in a Revolutionary War. When this country was founded, the purpose of the government was to protect the borders of this country. And that was where that was supposed to begin and that was supposed to end right there. But, we have adopted these things called the EPA, the environmen- talist, the ACLU and the list goes on of people up there in Washington, DC, that are taking our jobs away, day by day, with all of their restrictions along with Papa Bear, A1 Gore, to instruct them. He's ripped the taxpayers off with mil- lions and millions of dol- lars, trying to tell us that Of the total calls Felony Warrants,' 30 received 364 were dis-.

In 1977, it was 26 below. I believe they said winter before last was the only time in history there wasn't a state in the United States that didn't have snow. I guess all that was caused by global warming! I am told that after 2015, you will not be able to buy the wood burning stove, neither will you be allowed to have one. I think that falls under EPA. Folks, we better wake up and live. And the only place that I can tell you that you can put your trust without doubt, is the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He said He's a present help in time of need. That time's here. The goods outweigh the bad but I've been in bondage all of my life. When I was a child, my parents believed in disci- pline and so they ruled over me and controlled me until I became an adult. And then, I allowed Satan to take over my life and rule me and tell me what to do. And I guess I accepted that. But a few years went by and I realized there had to be a prison better than the one I was in for Satan. So one night, at an old fashioned altar, I found peace with God. He took me out of the bondage and slavery of Satan and told me from that day forward that He would send me a leader and a guider, which was the Holy Ghost. So, the rest of my life span, I have spent it happily being a prisoner of God. He loves me, He treats me good, and He told me He would never leave me or forsake me. However, I did belong to Him because I was bought with a price. That price was paid for me on Calvary. I'd like to ask you a question. .Who are you in bondage to today? If it's Satan, there is a better way. Deadlines: Editorial copy 3 p.m. Monday Advertising Our pharmacy will compete with the big boys! Plus we have jewelry and watches.
