A team of junior tennis players from the park leagues will journey to Camp Timber Ridge July 22 for a day of singles and doubles competition. Ladies Golf With all the heat we still had eleven ladies out for Ladies Day on July 7th. The tournament of the day was Throw Out Three Worst Holes. Thanks to Dottle Gillwald for running Ladies Day since I had to be out of town. The winner of the tournament was Harriet Hayes (there's that name again) with a net 32 after throwing out 22 strokes (three worst holes) and deducting her handicap of 45. As I said last week, that handicap is coming down. Harriet continues to improve. She broke the 100 mark for the first time with a score of 99. Way to go, Har- riet, keep plugging. The low medalist of the day was Norma Bowers with a 93. There was a tie for Low Putts bet- ween Frances Gatzaella and Bert Thomas with just thirty-one putts. " Harriet chipped in on No. 5 and No. 17 for birdies. Bert Thomas knocked one in from the fringe on No. 16 for a birdie. How sad it is to see our beautiful course burning up before our eyes. It will certainly help if players will keep their cart in the rough and behind the ropes. However, there is one positive thing about the drought. If you can't score low numbers on these hard fairways - you're never going to score. We have quite a large field signed up for the upcoming Presidents Cut on July 21st and 22nd. If you haven't signed up there is still time. i l il i Nancy IOth. Leanne Heath said, "If we shoot too many birdies and eagles the game will become extinct." From Fred Cor- coran, "One of life's cruelest moments is a hole-in-one without any witnesses." And "What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and three putts the last green." This from the Lady GoLfer's Bible - "GoLf's Greatest Tip - You will never be a good golfer unless you have com- plete confidence in your ability. All fine golfers agree that you must think, swing and play with confidence. The secret to obtaining confidence is - be certain you are swinging correctly to your own potential, and to concentrate but still remain relaxed. See your pro regularly for a check-up."

Now we are to drop e ,th word box and drop the route number. I have about 500 more return labels with the word box on them and being the frugal person I am I will not throw them away. I reckon I'll just have to cross out the word box. Have you noticed that our mail is dehvered about four hours earher? I had a word with Mary Brackett, our delivery person, and she said we :should get our mail between 12 noon : and 1 p.m. BURNED UP LAWNS -- Mother , Nature hasn't been too kind to all the new grass sown around Tuscawilla. Al rHooper is trying to get the grass Istarted but he does need some cooperation on the water works from ,above. ' We can finally ride out of Tuscawilla Hills without jarring everything loose Isn t the new road out to Route 51 j,ust great? Like a super highway, the I hope folks will not treat it as such. It is just a smooth traveling slowly. REMEMBER to keep our cars lock- ed and your homes also. The thieves are out hunting for drug money. Do you remember the days when we could go away for the day and leave our house opened. And when we didn't have to worry with the bother of lock- ing our car, ever? Those days are gone, folks. Lock everything. WELCOME VANESSA -- Tuscawilla Hills is pleased to welcome an exchange student from France this summer. Vanessa Wendling, daughter of M. and Mine. Bernard Wendling of Digne, France, will be spending a month as a guest of Robin Schreiber and her family, Mr. and Mrs. Kent Schreiber and sister Jenny. The Schreibers live on Packett Drive. Last summer Robin visited the Wendling family in Digne during the month of July. While there, Vanessa, her parents and her brothers, Loie and Antoine, showed Robin the sights of the south of France. Their excursions included Nice, the French Riviera, Monaco, the French Alps, a day in Ita- ly, Cannes, Marseilles, the beautiful French countryside and they spent some time in Paris. As part of the exchange program, arranged by Mrs. Senseney, the Jef- ferson High school French teacher, the visiting student becomes immersed in French family life, customs and speaks the language almost exclusive- ly. For Robin this was a wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Robin and her family hope to pro- vide a similar experience for Vanessa. Some of the activities planned during her visit include trips to Washi, D.C. (including a tour of the White House), Baltimore and the Inner Har- bor, several days at Rehoboth Beach, i Kings Dominion, excursions into Pennsylvania and Virginia, as well as beautiful West Virginia. When Vanessa leaves in August she will go to New York State to spend some time with another American girl who visited her last year. The Schreibers are hoping she will be able  to return to Charles Town in the fall as their guest and to visit an American high school with Robin. this  . Also visiting with the Schreibers week are Kent's sister, Jean Roumell and her 17-year-old daughter, Cathy, from South Bend, Ind. i i MUSIC THEATER FEATURES 'EVlTA' The Shenandoah Summer Music Theater at Shenandoah College and Conservatory will present "Evita" Ju- ly 13-14 in Armstrong Auditorium.

Filly Stakes Services Set CHARLES TOWN -- Thanks to donations from three of Charles Town's top breeders, stallion services have been acquired for the Sadie Hawkins Stakes. The Sadie Hawkins, to be run September 17, is a unique event. Aside from the purse of $20,000-added, a stallion service which must be used during the 1989 breeding season is awarded to the owners of the top three finishers. This year's stallions are Aye's Turn, donated by John D. McKee; Noble Ti- tle, donated by Donald P. Saville; and Comical Clown, donated by James A. Johnson. Aye's Turn, which stands at Beau Ridge Farms in Bunker Hill, is quick- ly making a name for himself as one of West Virginia's top young stallions. The son of Best Turn-Winking Aye, by Mite has two allowance-winning two- year-aids on the track so far this year: M.G.'s Turn and Sadie's Turn. In ad- dition, Apple Turn, another two-year- old, recently broke his maiden in only his third start. Noble Title, which stands at Heaven- ly Acres Farm in Kearneysville, is the sire of the multiple-stakes winning mare, Why Jan. Why Jan has won five of her last six races, including Charles Town's last three stakes, and has amassed over $220,000 in winnings. No- ble Title is by Prince John, a son of Princequillo, and is out of the Sword Dancer mare, Dancing Hostess. Comical Clown, which stands at Tres J. Farm in Shenandoah Junction, is the son of champion sprinter Shecky Greene and the Hospitality mare, Pat's Mama. Comical Clown's offspr- ing include the multiple-stakes winner Famous Comic and Three Ring Cir- cus, currently one of Charles Town's top fillies.
