Birthday Fun When we get our age, we might as well call it "fun"! I was kind of hoping everyone would forget mine this year - just let it pass by quietly. Not so! Son and daughter-in-law, Cliff and Peg Starliper, dropped by with a nice gift which I have al- ready used and enjoyed. Daughter Lydia Viekers took me shopping and out to breakfast, and brother and sister-in-law, Jimmy and Emma Locke treated the better half and me to breakfast on Tues- day. All in all, I'd say the old girl fared quite well for her birthday, 2000! Check It Out Have you noticed the patriotic hay bale displays at the Cam Tabbs? There are flag-draped bales and one dressed like a fire- cracker. Quite clever! Don't Forget Folks, did you realize that Jef- ferson County is considered a sub- urb of the D.C. area? One only has to get out in the car, on any day of the week, and it's not hard to be- lieve. The traffic is terrific (as the song goes). Drivers who are famil- iar with the area try to avoid Route 9 because of traffic tie-ups and sometimes we feel like city folk, here in Leetown, because of all the traffic. NOW, along with all that, add cell phones to every other vehicle, sleepy drivers who are already late, road rage, inexperience, and the list goes on and we have a red flag alert for a possible acci- dent! All the more reason to keep the traveling folks in our thoughts and prayers. Mrs. Gladys Dunn is ill - please add her to your list. Don't forget Paul Jackson, John Demory, Catherine Demory, Jim Blue and all the others who are ill or hurt- ing in any way. Remember all in your thoughts and prayers. Also, we need to think of the families of those who are ill. Till Then Have a great week! Try and do your homework this week, folks. Your FLC (Friendly Leetown Cor- respondent) needs your input. Just call or write - let us know what you and the family are doing or have already done. Also, let us know about those who are ill.

Preston Street (3rd floor classroom), Ranson, WV 25438 HEDGESVILLE MAN WINS CORVETTE AT CHARLES TOWN Hugh Burkhart's allegiance to ' Ford cars wavered slightly on In- dependence Day. Burkhart has a new liking for Chevrolets after his name was drawn at Charles Town Races and Slots as the winner of a 1961 classic red Corvette. "I'm a Ford man," Burkhart told an onlooker in the big crowd that gathered around the Corvette. "I guess I'll have to change a little." Burkhart, from nearby Hedges- ville, submitted more than 300 en- tries to the drawing. He visits Charles Town frequently and fig- ure~l it was a matter of time before he won a big prize. "I'm just tickled," said Burkhart. "I looked at this car ev- ery day. I wasn't counting on win- ning this one, but I waited right in front of the (awards) stand in case my name was drawn." His wife, June, was prepared to follow her husband in the family vehicle for the drive back home. "I'll drive the other car tonight," she said. "If I get in the Corvette, I might never get out." -Tezaaia:i, ag Jefferson Memorial Park Junior Tennis Standings: Big League Division Team W L Lions 5 0 Blue Jays 2 2 Bears 2 2 Tigers 1 3 Wildcats 1 4 Little League Division Hawks 4 1 Cubs 2 3 Owls 2 3 Vikings 2 3 Results past week: July 3 - Blue Jays 6, Bears 3; Tigers 5, Wildcats 4; Lions 7, Bears 2.
