Work- ers, Terry Carr, Mike Smith, and Chris Gibson from Poca- hontas County, came to my home and did a remarkable job caulking window panes, laying plastic under my house, shoot- ing insulation in the walls and attic, as well as creating an out- side access to the attic, plus adding cable vents for ventila- tion. They cleaned out my chimney, as I use the fireplace for an auxiliary or emergency heat system. And they wrapped my pipes with in- sulation in the basement so I no longer need to worry,about them freezing in the cold winter months ahead. Mr. Carr also gave me ideas on how to im- prove overall efficiency. My current furnace is inoper- able. They will come back and replace it as soon as the ordered equipment arrives. I cannot say enough about these men with regard to their intelligence, courtesy, integrity, commitment to their work, and level of sk'ili. I am grateful to them and to the state Weatherization program for this much needed assistance. Most sincerely, Linda Barnett Greenbrier County Dear Editor: Thank you for printing my poetry. The response locally has been very positive. Although all of my work affects me personal- ly, not all of my work is per- sonal. I'll leave it up to the reader to guess which is which.
