Page 2 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES, St. Paul, VA, Thursday, May 16, 2013 n n WAX,, by Ann Young Gregory v ~r RelSrinted from May 9, 1974 :: There are quite a number of you who read the Valley Times even though you live away from t'he St. Paul-Castlewood-Dante-Coeburn area, and this editorial is partly for you. In ;ecriting it, I am assuming that most of you have lived in this area, or have at "least visited here;and so are interested in how things tre. -' The point ot':it all is to tell you that spring is again proving that this is indeed one of God's favored restore growth, the fresh green of spring does show, and proves that strip-mining is not the total evil that some would have us believe. seems to me that the wealth of beauty with which God has blessed us need not be destroyed by the wealth of our minerals. Strip-mined areas can be restored, and the beauty of the mountains need not be lost. The coal is needed, but we need the beauty and security of restored land, too. Most people who talk about strip-mining seem to be radical about it, one way or the other. Some would places.

Of course, not country, but he's always seemed to me to be one of all the scenery:,is beautiful. Because of the energy the few who offered a practical solution to the crisis, strip-mining is being done even more than before, and in.too many cases, the land is left bleak 'and bare 4vhen thee coal is gone, and is blooming with nothing except-gullies where the rains have eroded away chunks of unprotected earth. On the other hand, on strip-mined.{i.tes where an effort has been made to problem areas devastated by strip-mining. In any case, we have many hills and mountains which are not touched by the strip-miners, and those places are full of beauty as spring takes over. How nice it would be if, one year soon, ALL the hillsides showed fresh green leaves and blooming dogwood. Walk for memory by Mark Underwood Neuroscience researcher Quincy Bioscience www.q uincybioscience.com If you have found it chal- lgnging to stick to an exercise plan this past year, listen up! Routine exercise isn't just good for your physical health, new research has found when you ride a bike, hike, walk outdoors or do laps around an indoor walking track, you're also help-~ ing your memory. The takeaway message from new research is this? If you are over 50 and are having trouble sticking to a regular walking regimen, you may want to focus on committing to your walking schedule Changes in patterns of walking less frequently, walking with different gaits as you age, and walking slower and less steadily on even paths can indicate cognitive problems later on in life. What's more, new research from various institutes including the Beckman Institute for Ad- vanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois walking or riding a bike for six months or up to a year can help improve memory as well as problem solving skills in older adults by up to 20 percent. The new research also points out that adults over 50 who take regular walks are more likely to great. So don't blame all the distraction in your life on not making walking a priority. Instead, blame it on poor executive decision, a term well- known by scientists who refer to our ability to multi-task, make good decisions, plan ahead, prioritize and weigh options. Evidence has shown that those who fine-tune their execu- tive function can have stronger willpower Tips to increase your walk- ing schedule Commit to doing it. Just like any new lifestyle activity, you'll want to make sure you practice what you preach. Every person reacts to different motivators. Start by simply making a commitment to walking more frequently. Put a plan together that you can realistically follow. Write down your goals such as walking two city blocks a day. Write down increments of how many blocks you want to accomplish by when such as after 30 days you want to get up to a mile 5 days a week. The purpose of goal setting is to give you something to work toward. If the goal isn't working, fine- tune it to fit your lifestyle.
