I have experienced a Beautiful thing people in this county just want to do the right thing no matter what. People were just raised to do the right thing because its what you do. In be met two very special ladies who gave a part of themselves to someone else. So that they could live a full and Happy life. Michelle Zipp of new Paris donated a kidney to a woman in Florida and Shanda Goodrich of Everett is donating a part of her liver to a Man from Bedford. They both donated their organs to people they had never met to offer a Chance for them to fulfil their dreams. When i asked them if they were scared they both said they were More excited than nervous. Both women did the right thing. Recently we ran a Story about Many of the Unsung heroes of this county who helped the Many stranded on the Pennsylvania Turnpike during the second a a Snow Magged on. While most of us looked out our windows and stayed cozy some volunteers hiked out of their House to bring food water and toilet paper to those stranded in the Peak of the storm.

Its very special to find a Community who so eagerly just wants to help. Please keep teaching this for generations Bedford. You re doing the right thing and please Don t Ever Stop. A Cassidy Ann Sherman we had a discussion in the newsroom this week about the candidacy of Bernie Sanders a 74-year-old democratic socialist who has gained a surprising la Strong youth following. The argument from the Clinton Camp and others is that he can twin in a general election a his ideas Are too far left his idea to tax americans to give everyone Universal health care is Way too expensive Etc. And. I pointed out some pundits think Young voters while they Are frenzied it seems about Sanders done to show up at the polls. Actually some statistics show 18-year-Olds vote at a very High rate to take advantage of their new status i guess but then they drop off As they get into their 20s. However having said that its possible Young voters will go the polls and show their strength. Sanders seems to think they will and provide the tide that he can ride to the nomination and beyond. To do that Young voters will have to first make sure they Are registered which can be done now though March 28. Call the county elections office 623-4803. For More information. Is it too cliche to say your voice is your vote a Elizabeth Coyle Over the course of this week i have been working on an article for an interesting event coming up Here in Bedford county rebels and Rye which will be held at the Omni Bedford Springs on feb. 20, seems like something that members of the Community will be very interested to attend the immersive theater show is set to transport attendees Back to 1794.

The article will be published in an upcoming Issue of the Gazette. A Andrew Carr super mixed feelings for big game guest editorial it is Ever harder to watch the super bowl without mixed feelings. This week As football fans geared up for the High holy Day of sports on sunday researchers at Boston University confirmed that the late great nil quarterback Ken Stabler was suffering from High stage 3 chronic traumatic encephalopathy when he died in july. Score one More for cute the degenerative brain disease increasingly linked with football. Few athletes were As charismatic As the Snake during his Young hell raising years with the Oakland raiders. And few men have endured a Middle age As crippling. His partner Kim Bush said on wednesday that his 60s were a Nightmare of memory loss insomnia and disorientation with headaches so severe that he often spent whole Days in silence. As he witnessed other retired athletes succumbing to dementia depression and other neurological problems he agreed to donate his brain to science cute which is believed to arise from repetitive brain trauma can Only be diagnosed posthumously. After Stabler died at 69 of complication daily thought thought if you Are tempted to write yourself off As an insignificant human being consider this you Are a one of a kind creation made by god he loves you As if you re his Only child scripture for you created my inmost being you knit me together in my mothers womb. Psalm 139 14. The life i now live in the body i live by Faith in the son of god who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2 20b prayer almighty god. I stand in Awe of you As i Ponder the complexity of the human body your creation. It truly is unfathomable to think of How each tiny cell muscle Bone tissue and each part works together to help our bodies function. Life is something i tend to take for granted until i am faced with a health problem. It makes me realize How even the act of lifting a Finger is triggered by a Chain reaction of various body parts working together. God help me to use this mind soul and body you have created me to be. Make me a vessel which brings glory and Honor unto you my creator. In Jesus name i Pray amen. Heart moments copyright 2016 by Elizabeth Whetstone from Colon cancer Ann Mckee a Neur pathologist who has been among the leading researchers into the condition immediately identified the telltale shrunken temporal lobe Small hippocampus atrophy and shredded brain tissue. With the diagnosis Stabler joins More than too of his Peers including More than a half dozen Hall of farriers who appear to have suffered from cute including Junior seau Quot Iron Quot Mike Webster and Frank Gifford. Bennet Homalu a medical examiner and University of California at Davis professor whose work w As the basis of the film Quot concussion Quot has estimated that nine out of to nil players have the affliction. Though Stabler became increasingly private As his health degenerated the news surprised no one who knew him. Like most pros he had experienced football s occupational hazards for Many years before football was his occupation. By the time he retired had spent some 28 years being tackled starting at age 9. After years of denial the nil has begun to acknowledge that cute is a problem and that being slammed repeatedly in the head is no different for football players than for boxers or combat veterans or hockey players or any other Mere mortal. California last year passed a Law limiting Contact practice for football players in Middle school and High school and the american Academy of paediatrics has weighed in on the Issue. But More must be done. Homalu has questioned whether there should be an age of consent for football since the brain damage appears to Worsen with the number of hits and thus the number of years of Contact. Others believe the game needs to be changed at every level to limit trauma. Of course that s not what fans want to focus on now and who can blame them football is thrilling and it s hard to separate its mix of skill and violence and patriotism and marketing and nostalgia. Still the casualties Are mounting. Tuning them out won t be easy this weekend As As America Waits for the Kickoff and stables survivors wait shattered for the cold Comfort of possible admission to the Hall of Fame. The above editorial was published feb. 5 in the Sacramento Bee. Its views Arentt necessarily those of the Bedford Gazette.
