(Continued from P»g« 1) "One of the things I had done was to help facilitate a general grief group in our parish," she said. "All of th» training that I had, and all of the education I had, and all of the seminars that I had... There was nothing that prepared me for what we were about to face. "For those 1 of us who are Christian, our faith is a support, and our belief in life after death is a support, our faith community... Without question, our family and our to hold us together." Other relationships, including marriages, may fail following suicide. "In my own experience," she said, "I often think of "How do parents go through it who are single parents?' because Jont has, without a doubt, been my greatest single strength, outside of the Lord's strength.

"You're constantly trying to rearrange the pieces and make it come out differently. It seems like it could have been prevented. There are so many different apparent reasons why people take their lives, and there's not one single profile. We would like to think there is, because it would make us feel safe. "You see people of all agos/ of all economic levels, those with ca-. reers, and those who are unemployed, men, women and children. There's not one single profile, and there's not, maybe, one single reason why n person takes their life." Of all the feeling:; which follow suicide, at least one has no place, Anne believes. ""I felt a great deal of sadness, and sorrow, and I still do. But I never felt ashamed," she said. Communication is vital if the disease of depression, and resulting suicides, ure to be attacked. "There is a reluctance for people to speak openly of what's? hap- jH-ned, because of the sense of stiprna," she said. Even the previous religious condemnation of suicide has been tempered by current scientific and medical thought. "In terms of the church's stance, it's very up to date," said Anne. "Certainly, the church is very supportive and recognizes not only the human struggle, but they do recognize the disease process (of depression), as well." There are common threads among those who have lost a loved one to suicide. "I've met so many people who v have lost a loved one," said Anne. "I think that there are some commonalities that crop up, even though each person's situation is individual. "Suicide itself becomes a trauma that's very hard to heal from. It is that sudden death. Secondly, : the survivors commonly do feel a great deal of guilt because-of the preventability aspect. "It takes longer, at least in my knowledge and also in my dealing with other people, for people to reach some balance in their own lives." Emotional pain will often lead to physical problems. There are ail kinds of physical symptoms that can take place, everything from the inability to sleep end eat," she said. "Depression is common among the survivors of suicide." Her prescription for other survivors .of suicide is one she follows herself. . "I did go through grief counseling for the first year after Ted's death, on a regular basis." she said. "I still occasionally go in for tune-ups, as I call them, when I feel like I need some help, "I encourage people to seek professional heip. I use the cancer example all the time. No one faults you for getting help for cancer. They don't see it as a weakness, they see it as good common sense. "Early intervention, in terms of depression, is really important. Again, if a person has cancer..." Treatment is the best answer. "It's been successful. The encouragement is to try to seek help," Ann said. . Next: Depression.

Tax sale nets county cash (Continued from Page 1) County corporation counsel David Morzenti said it's a "complex legal issue" that he'll handle. "That's my job as legal counsel," he said. Ward was apparently told that since her property borders both a lake and river, she can't subdivide and create new lake lots, since that would also create, more river lots. Lawrence Vandevoorde, chairman of the zoning commit tor, noted, "There is a moratorium on all river frontage." The six-month moratorium is in effect until Aug. 15, Vandevoorde noted. Morzenti said he would welcome a telephone call from Ward to discuss the issue. Board chairman James Butterbrodt urged that the two get together. In other business Wednesday, Vandevoorde reported the recent sale of county tax delinquent property netted the county about $200,000.

The Lake Six boat landing dispute may soon be decided in court, the Iron County Board .of Supervisors learned Wednesday. "The lawsuit ,is moving fast," county corporation counsel David Morzenti said. The county claims an easement for use of the boat landing, road was panted to the Town of Mercer from the Marathon Logging Corp..,in 1958. There should be public access to Lake Six, which has been used be the public for fishing and other recreational purposes, the county claims. Ryszard. Borys, of Chicago, former owner of the property on Lake Six and an ageoJ^ far, tb,e•• present property owner, claim* there has not been a "contiri'tlous uninterrupted adverse use" of the road leading to the lake, however. Borys previously blocked off the boat landing on occasion and the dispute has been simmering for several years. Morzenti told the board Wednesday Judge Robert Weisel has set a July 1 deadline for motions in the court case. Morzenti said he's confident the county will prevail and the judge will decide to keep the boating landing public. • An agreement, specifies 95 percent of the court costs will be borne by the county, with Mercer covering the other 5 percent; In another action Wednesday, Morzenti said an appraisal of the Rock Cut bridge on the Montreal River in Kimball is under way. The county board has initiated court condemnation proceedings in an effort to ke#p th* bridge op^n. as part of th« Iron Horse- snowmobile trail. The appraiser will determine the value of the property as one of the. steps in the court action. Jeanne Faulkner claims ownership of the bridge. Real Estate Facts by: Faith Newberry GRI, CRS WHAT'S HAPPENING? There's more to selling a home than meets the eye. If you plan to sell soon, you'll quickly learn that your agents performs many services behind the scenes. As a property owner, your primary contact with your agent will be when you list the property, when you get activity reports and when you receive calls for a showing. The rest of the time may seem tike endless waiting. Not so for your agent. From beginning to end, your agent's actions are working for you. Early on, the agent is conducting research to best delerrmne a likely price. This is followed by analysis of buyer groups to target those most likely to purchase a home liko yours Deed and tax rocords arc researched, olhor <'»ijonir> contacted, advertising pVmnerJ, a.nrj A marketing r.tratO'jy imp'ormjnled. Often, direct mail is used to announce the availability of your home to buyers waiting in the wings. This, involves development of prospect databases. selection of printed materials, and the mind-numbing tedium of getting the mail out. Buyers are pre-qualified for their financial ability to purchase your home and interviewed to determine their motivation to make an early purchase. Appointments are set, a tour schedule arranged, and finally a showing of your home occurs. Most importantly, your home sells—all because of your agent's activities while you wailed.
