Mama saves lives

traveling up to 150 miles per hour, with
Jange of 300 miles without refueling. It is
. extremely safe and dependable craft.
,'^Ma will effectively transport up to two

helicopter is equipped with a full

equipment. MAMA will respond to
aitipie system injuries, neck & spinal in-
cardiac and respiratory emergen-

^Ma, a service of Memorial Mission
Hospital, is promoting rapid transport. It
is not designed to be a first response unit,
but rather a back up in the most severe
emergency situations. It is designed to save
lives through the skills of the dedicated
professional flight crew and the speed and
maneuverability of the aircraft.
As Wolf Laurel Ski Patrol Director, I
can see where MAMA could be of great
service for remote locations such as Wolf
Laurel. In the past if we had a severe
emergency, we had to wait thirty minutes
for an ambulance to arrive from Mars Hill.
It took an additional forty-five minutes
before the ambulance could reach the
hospital. Now we can have MAMA at the
ski slope within fifteen minutes after the
crew has been informed of the emergency.

Or the 1987 Phonathon.
MARS HILL - Locked away in the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains are
rich store-houses of artifacts which date back to as early as 10,{XX) B.C. This
spring, April 26-May 2, Mars Hill College will sponsor an archaeological field
study as part of its Elderhostel program.
Amateur and would-be archaeologists will be able to unearth treasures
from the pre-historic past during the week-long program. Mornings will be
dedicated to discussions of the mountains’ earliest settlers, the North
American Indians, their culture, and archaeological field and laboratory
techniques. Afternoons will be spent in the field excavating for clues to this
ancient Indian past.
Participants will be expected to read James Deetz’s book, “Invitation to
Archaeology, ” in preparation for the week’s activities. Participants will also
be required to bring a flat shovel, a triangular brick masnon’s trowel, and a
metric tape measure as well as appropriate hiking boots and work clothes.
The instructor for the class will be Linda G. Hall, a Winston-Salem native
who makes her home now in Weaverville. She earned her undergraduate
degrees from East Carolina University and has a master’s degree in an-
thropology from UNC-Chapel Hill. She has held positions with the N.C.
Divisions of Archives and History, Department of Cultural Resources, UNC-
Chapel Hill’s Research Laboratories, the Cherokee Tribal Council, U.S.
Forest Service, and is currently an archaeological consultant with Ar
chaeological Research Consultants, Inc.
She has been involved with numerous “digs” in the area and has par
ticipated in 1986 in archaeological surveys in the Cane River Park in Yancey
County, the proposed Highway 521 Landfill Site in Mecklenburg County, the
Shoreline Areas Evaluation at Nottely Lake in Union County, GA, and the
proposed alternate sites for the Gaston Municipal Airport.
According to Ray Rapp, Director of Mars Hill’s Center for Continuing
Education, We are sure that this will be a popular program and are giving
area residents the first opportunity to register for the program.”
