In rural communities where there is often a lack of access to medical care, school nurses play a major role in the health care of a child.
That's why Radford University is offering some school nurses in our area some additional training.

This school nurse workshop is one of the few opportunities Lanelle Fisher has had to brush up on her skills.
But as a school nurse in Craig County she needs all the training she can get, she is often the first line of care for many children, in a community where access to medical care is limited.

The workshop is a four hour course where the nurses get more than hands-on-training but also information on how to diagnosis disorders such as attention deficit. Radford University hopes it will mean families will be healthier in the long run.

New head restraints and seat back designs may be helpful when it comes to cutting down on whiplash injuries in car crashes.
(------------)
[VO-NAT 14:12:42]
[SUPER=04-Insurance Inst. for Highway Safety;]


The tests simulate rear end crashes at ten miles an hour.
The older model car-- from 1995 to 1998-- is tested first.
The next video shows a later year model-- 1999 through 2002-- with active head restraints. The updated design allows both the head and torso to move as one unit during a crash.
Whiplash results when the nerves, muscles, and ligaments in the neck are suddenly jerked- usually in a rear end collision.

[OUT Q=and it keeps me going.]


((Emory Robinson pulls his walking sticks from the back of a pick-up. Sack after sack, friends and family help set up his display. [NAT SOUND OF SET-UP]
Robinson retired in 1970, after working for the railroad for 48 years. A magazine article sparked his interest in walking sticks soon after, and he's been making them ever since.
[SOT 35:14]
[IN Q=My wife says I've made enough]

((MY WIFE SAYS I'VE MADE ENOUGH. I STILL FIGURE THIS HOBBY HAS KEPT ME GOING WHERE I'M 97 YEARS OLD.))
[RUNS= :14]
[OUT Q=97 years old.]


Made from wild cherry, maple and other woods, Robinson's thigmotropic sticks owe their distintive curl to the honeysuckle vines that wrapped around the saplings as they grew.
But each walking stick also requires many hours of close hand- work, so many that Robinson estimates he makes less than 15 cents an hour.
[SOT 36:15]
[IN Q=One lady said there's nothing to it.]

((ONE LADY SAID THERE'S NOTHING TO IT. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TAKE THE BARK OFF. I'VE GOT NEWS FOR YOU. I HAD A BOY I LEARNED HOW TO DO IT. HE LAUGHED ABOUT IT AND SAID, SHE DON'T KNOW WHAT SHE'S TALKING ABOUT.))
[RUNS= :10]
[OUT Q=don't know what she's talking about.]


Robinson must straighten each stick, and scrape it smooth before he carves a snake or burns in a detailed design.
Good sticks are becoming harder to find, but in the last 30 years, Robinson has made more than 36- hundred... each one numbered and signed.
[SOT 55:06]
[IN Q=So I think]

((RODDY MOORE/BLUE RIDGE INSTITUTE: SO I THINK IT'S INTERESTING, OF ALL THE CRAFTS WE HAVE HERE, IT'S PROBABLY THE OLDEST AND SOMETHING MAN HAS USED SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING OF TIME. AND EMORY HAS JUST TAKEN WHAT'S DONE IN NATURE WITH THE HONEYSUCKLE AND TAKEN THAT STICK AND WORKED WITH IT.)) [44:09] ((I FIND AT MY AGE, I HAVE LOTS OF TROUBLE.
