"Roanoke, Virginia Power Outages" by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber


This is how to find Roanoke, Virginia on the map

Roanoke Virginia - emphasis is on "Better Health for All"

July 5, 2012

Roanoke, Virginia is a beautiful, historic city in a Commonwealth state, but is currently experiencing issues here due to power outages throughout the city.

Informants say that the power outage issues started last week on Thurdsay.  

The local Civid Center, thanks to the American Red Cross, is providing fold up cot beds, blankets, meals, and a safe place for victims of this local tragedy.  

Workers have people who are staying at The Civid Center who were affected sign in and sign out.  The temporary housing is in a large 'gymnasium' room and   The American Red Cross also provides meals.  The Civic Center housing is expected to last about two more days.  Crews are busy at this time trying to restore the power.   

This is the siloutte version
of joggers seen yesterday as part of the
Roanoke,  Virginia
Fourth Of July Celebration.
The joggers, who were of all ages
were all healthy and 99 percent white.
The Fourth of July celebration here had to do with a large parade of many, many joggers running down a directed path yesterday morning through the city.  The flag women for the event were also the cheerleaders for the event, cheering on certain joggers as they passed them on the corner, not far from the local police station.  The 'better health' trend also included the local YMCA, which has as an emphasis area for adults 'better ehalth through cycling.  The Y also offers deluxe exercise facilities, including an electric 'climbing wall', and a computer lab for children.  Rates are reasonable and published.

Also enjoyed in Roanoke this Flurth of July holiday a church picnic offered by a local Baptist Mission.  We got to meet many of the locals who were involved in these events and who were friendly, and enjoyed good homestyle food including potato salad, grilled hot dogs and hamburgers and homemade coleslaw among other items served there. 

The Fourth of July day ended by having fireworks shot off in the sky all around where I was last night, in five different locations.

"A Loser type of person" thanks Reverend David Umphlett

OPEN LETTER TO THE REVEREND DAVID UMPHLETT, Rector, St Mary's Episcopal Church, High Point, NC

July 2, 2012
Dear Reverend Umplett,

Thanks for being our friend, and helping us by buying our tickets to Roanoke, Va. so that we do not have to sleep out on the street here in
High Point, NC or be picked up and have to go to jail for vagrancy.
We appreciate it. You made us feel like we were worthwhile human

I also liked the closing hymn on Sunday - "America". I am sort of an orphan anyhow. My mother, who is now "Mrs. R.J.
Reynolds" and lives in Akron, Ohio would rather have me rot on the
street than help us in any way and has always been this way.
She is 74 now anyhow and my dad is dead.
Johns mother is in her 80's. This is why I was so intent on working
and building a life, which we will do again. I did not want to ever be a
"loser person" who had to beg, live in shelters, and be looked down on
by people. My ex-husband, with the "Bauer" conglomerate, is the same way. St. Mary's Church made us feel welcome the entire time we
were here.

Have a blessed fourth of July.
Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber and John Drilling

Happy Fourth of July!" "Moving to Virginia - and an email of value sent to me today" Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

Open Letter to Marc Cenedella, CEO & Founder of "The Ladders"

Hello!  I am moving to Virginia within the next few days.  This email from "the Ladders" was sent to me today.  It is very relevant based on having to rebuild and start all over again.  Thanks to a bright young clergyman, at St. Mary's Episcopal Church here in High Point, NC named  The Reverend David Umphlett, Mr; John Drilling and I are able to travel to Roanoke, Virginia where neither of us have never been before.  This journey will occur on the 3rd and 4th of July.  I appreciated being a member of St. Mary's Episcopal Church for the short time we were in High Point and appreciate their generosity.  I did not appreciate the abuse by "Black Power" at Leslie's House, 851 English Road, High Point, NC , or being blamed for things beyond my control. The below newsletter is very inspirational and uplifting, also, from an Executive Job Search Site called "The Ladders".

Why the critics of Kimberly Koerber don't count

A patriotic Monday, Kimberly,

With the 4th of July coming up on Wednesday, it's a good time to reconsider this advice from a great American:

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.

That was Theodore Roosevelt speaking at the Sorbonne in 1910, but he could have just as easily been speaking to you.

Those critics, those naysayers, the nags and the negative people in our lives who want to tell us: "No. It can't be done. Don't try. Give up, Kimberly. Why do you have to stand out? Why won't you just be sensible and give in to the inevitable?"

They don't count. And you mustn't mistake their words for truth.

Don't buy into their message of settle-settle, underachievement, and muddle-along-now.
Because you've been blessed with talent, because you've had the fortunate happenstance to be born in this great country (or emigrate, or visit!), because you're one of the leading professionals in this land, you have a higher calling this Fourth of July.

Use the great gifts you have been given, find the forum where your talents will shine, discover that place where your spirit soars and the work smells like… victory in the morning.

Enjoy this week of the Fourth, and then go find your new arena.

Dilaudid in High Point, NC by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-koerber

This is supposed to be a "Hallucination while using Diladid"
but the woman looks mean and like she is coming off of the heavy sedative.

 What is Dilaudid?

Hydromorphone, a more common synonym for dihydromorphinone, commonly a hydrochloride (brand names Palladone, Dilaudid, and numerous others) is a very potent centrally acting analgesic drug of the opioid class. It is a derivative of morphine, to be specific, a hydrogenated ketone thereof and, therefore, a semi-synthetic drug. It is, in medical terms, an opioid analgesic and, in legal terms, a narcotic. It is commonly used in the hospital setting, mostly intravenously (IV), due to the fact that its bioavailability orally, rectally, and intranasally is very low.

Hydromorphone is used in medicine as an alternative to morphine for analgesia, and as a second- or third-line narcotic antitussive (cough suppressant) for cases of dry, painful, paroxysmal coughing resulting from continuing bronchial irritation after influenza and other ailments, inhalation of fungus, and other causes. In general, it is considered the strongest of the antitussive drugs, and was developed shortly after diacetylmorphine (heroin) was removed from clinical use for this purpose in most of the world and banned outright in many countries. The effectiveness of hydrocodone as an antitussive may be partly due to it being partially converted to hydromorphone in the liver.

Another "Hallucination"
Hydromorphone should not be confused with hydromorphinol, also known as 14-hydroxydihydromorphine and RAM-320, or dihydromorphine (Paramorfan). While all of these are strong opioids, they are indeed different drugs. Additional confusion arises from the fact that, in a handful of countries, hydromorphinol is distributed under the brand name Numorphan, which is the marketed name for oxymorphone in the rest of the world, according to the current version of The A-Z Encyclopaedia of Alcohol & Drug Abuse and other references.

Highpoint, NC  Heroin treatment

There is a group here in High Point, Nc who are being treated for heroin abuse.  These are the lucky people who found recovery.  But - in certain cases to recover from Heroin, Doctors and Addiction Treament specialists prescribe 'methodone', a similar drug which is very costly, but covered under  the person's medical insurance, so the person never really has the experience of being clean.  This occurred in Ohio, also, for some reason.  Dilaudid is a similar drug.  It is a
heavy, strong, painkiller, and is misprescribed by doctors and is known by many people from the music industry, including James Taylor, a songwirter and singer t be a great drug.  In fact, it was so great that James Taylor literally changed into another person as exhibited by his album covers.  Below and throughout this short article are some photographs described as 'Hallucinations while using Dilaudid'.  

Dilaudid is still considered a recreational drug and comes in pill and liquid form.
