This week, I should like to talk about a subject which is related to Special Education, if only indirectly, and that is worries which drive people into depression. According to a survey by Yale Professor Dr. Eugene S. Paykel, these are the 10 most distressing events in order of importance:
Death of a child. Death of a spouse. A jail sentence. Infidelity of a spouse. Financial difficulties. Business failures. Being fired. A miscarriage or still birth. Divorce or marital separation.
With such winter weather as we have been having the past three weeks, we believe several area reports that the sun did come out for a very short time on Groundhog Day. That just leaves three weeks to go.
This past weekend, snow was whipped around by high winds. The road crews worked round the clock keeping the main highways open. No school Monday. The winds began to subside Sunday evening and the crews started to work on secondary roads. Back Mountain was blocked with six- teen foot drifts. Jerico Road had four foot drifts. Wood-row Mountain was blocked with deep drifts, particularly on the Dogtown Road. These were opened Monday.
Ice moved down the Greenbrier Tuesday evening.
Phil McComb called in Tuesday morning to report fifty robins at Huntersville.
