SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.VA. - In an event that sparked laughter and sorrow, U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd joined with Shepherd University officials and others Tuesday afternoon in dedicating a new $10 million school of nursing building for the university. The striking building, with its high-tech instruction rooms and heavy reliance on natural lighting, was named in honor of Byrd's wife, Erma Ora Byrd, who died March 25, 2006.

Erma Ora Byrd Hall on the east campus near the school's administration building was dedicated on what would have been Erma Byrd's 90th birthday, and Byrd talked about her being in heaven.

A need to serve To the editor: I am 18 years old and a senior at Highland View Academy. Since the attacks of Sept. 11 and more recently the War in Iraq, I have questioned the rights that I have to say the words "Proud to be an American. " I can remember how my grandfathers, both of whom served in World War II, would talk of how lucky I was and they were to live in this country. They talked of how they witnessed the horrors of war and hoped I would never have to go through that experience.
