SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE -- THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1988 30 RANSON Marty Lancaster Dial 725-4370 Tickets for the first Annual Fireman's ball have been distributed to the five county fire companies. The American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary are sponsoring this event, and you will be able to take "sweetie" out for an evening of dining and dancing. Tickets are $10/stag and $15/couple. Special Edition is the band for the evening, and they are wonder- ful. If you would like to purchase tickets and you aren't quite sure who to contact in the fire companies, you may contact the Legion Post Home, 725-7212, and leave your name and phone number. We will be glad to fur- nish the tickets. This promises to be a fun-filled evening.. Ya'll Come! ! ! Anna Mae, from the Senior Center, has once again been leading us on unusual adventures. Last week she took Idonia Wright, Mary Says, Catherine Carter, Catherine Robbins, Alva_ Hargett, Lillian Kirkpatrick, Evangeline Buzzard, Ernest-Hough, Dolly McDaniel and myself to Harpers Ferry. Now, this wasn't your average sightseeing tour - oh no - nothing so tame for our Anna Mae. We hung around the train depot. Actually, we were distributing brochures for the Jefferson County United Way cam- paign. We were letting the commuters know that if they decided to donate at their place of employment, the money : could be earmarked to return to Jef- ferson County. You see lots of strange sights by hanging around the railroad tracks. People watching can be loads of fun! We talked and laughted bet- ween trains, and had worked up quite an appetite before we finished. But. J . a person could starve in Harpers Ferry if they're hungry after 5:00 p.m. Nary a hot dog or an ice cream in sight. My buddy Pam Kisner is a shop owner and I'm sure if asked nicely she : would have bad a few munchies for us. She's a pretty good pal to have in times ; of hunger. : Being back in school hit full force - this Tuesday morning. I had an exam in the class I'm taking at Shepherd. The brain is not as agile as it once was, and I'm spending more time trying to absorb the same amount of informa- tion. Add to that the fact that my brain never did work in logical patterns and you can begin to see my problem. Nevertheless, I think I did alright.. I'm not sure but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. The bowling season is back in full swing. The Monday Night Double Couples League is now called the Piz- za Hut Double Couples, and my team has renamed themselves the Meat- balls. I'm not sure ff that's a reflection on the quality of bowling we do, our personalities or what others think of us. I should have stayed home Monday McBride & night. Our team did manage to take one game and pinfall and now we are four wins and four losses. That must be destined to be our lot in the world of bowling - neither really good nor really bad. People always remember the first place team and the last place team. There's no sense in being mediocre in what you do! I have a report on the final tally dur- ing the recent Muscular Dystrophy campaign at the Ranson 7-11. These fine folks collected $1,269 during the weekend and their total for the year is $5,943. That's lots of fund raising ef- fort, hard work and time. Ranson is lucky to have a business who cares enough to make the difference in a per- son's life who has muscular dystrophy. Good going guys! ! ! The Senior Sunshine Chorus has hit the sing-along trail again. Bob Davis, Joe Taylor, Susan Taylor, Brook Evans, Hazel Rose, Laura Brooks, Isiah and Grace Allen, Catherine Carter, Idonia Wright, Mable Allen and Readow Harris entertained at the local nursing home recently. Joe Taylor plays a mean piano and here are seniors who truly enjoy spreading a little sunshine. There's a trip being planned and you'll be able to see the fall foliage along Skyline Drive. The cost is $12 per person and that does not include the ticket to go thrugh the caverns if you'd happen to want to. The bus is almost full, but there are a few seats available. If you'd enjoy coming along with a group of great people call 725-4044 and have your name put on the list. My daughter, Toby, plays the sax- aphone in the Musselman band. They recently bad one of their scheduled band competitions in Martinsburg. If I'm not mistaken they will also be hav- ing a competition at Jefferson within the next couple of months. Now if you're like me you love the half-time show but you're not crazy about the football game. This is an event for you. Talk about 76 trombones and all that jazz. There will be bands from all dif- ferent areas of our region, and all school sizes. Each band competes against bands of similar size and the competiton is fierce. The hard work that goes into planning and executing these routines is tremendous. Plan to come view this extravaganza and you can cheer for Musselman and Jeffer- son (after all they're in different groups). You'll be able to spot my daughter by her red hair, saxaphone and green sneakers. I'm keeping my fingers crossed she isn't like her mother, and she won't go marching the wrong way across the field! (My dad always thought I was strange, then he realized I just heard different music - that's why I went a different direction ! ! ) P.O. Box 1060 qr Harpers Ferry, WV .... o,.o.,+,,, .KABLETOV00rN Marianna Smallwood Dial 725-5707 Reports continue to come in regar- ding the county fair. Chad Alvarez won third in meat class sheep and second on his rabbit. Ryan Alvarez won first on the rabbit and steer bringing it in meat class, and second with his sheep on showing and fitting. Chad's five sheep won on showing and firing while Ryan's sheep was fourth in the meat class. These boys prove their ability to have their way with animals, especial- ly with the advice of their grandfather, Melvin Rissler. During the Pop singers concert, Ryan rendered the song, "I Was Born To Boogie," in such a man- ner as to win the applause of many. Could this ability be passed on to him from his mother, Diane Alvarez, who has a wonderful singing voice? Mervin Roderick, II, has returned to Massanutten Military Academy for his second year. During the summer vacation he was a good assistant on the farm helping to run the motor vehicles after receiving his driver's license. The Tony Hill family has been visiting Sue's parents since her father was taken ill recently in Arlington, Va., and her mother is a guest in Ox Road Nursing Home near Woodstock, Va. News received concerning Frances Penwell's reaction to medical atten- tion is very favorable. She has been a patient in Jefferson Memorial Hospital. We all wish her the best. Sympathy is extended to the members of the family of the late Mrs. Mary Nicodemus. Bobby BrooksjI, has joined Tim- my Danner as acbi in the local church. " Dot and Jack Moulden, Washington, D.C., were visitors of Grady and Beulah Owens, Summit Point. It was Jack's birthday, which was observed to the fullest. Jack and Grady were World War II buddies and often get together. Mrs. Elizabeth Riddleberger, Charles Town, and her brother, Stanley Rogers, Washington, D.C., were callers of Marianna Smallwood, Wednesday. Tom and Barbara Wolford, Tttawilla Hills, spent Saturday even- ing and Sunday with Jack and Nancy Good, Dillsburg, Pa. Saturday evening the couples dined at the Red Lobster in Camp Hill, Pa. Robert T. Harris lost several days from work due to an abcessed tooth. He and the family have been very anx- ious concerning his mother, who lives in Brownsville, Texas. Tuesday evening, Doug and Diane Knott and Michael, Millville, were visitors of Diane's sister, Tammy Jackson and family. Lorilei Roderick attended a picnic Saturday afternoon, along with the co- workers of Dalb of Bardane. The event was held at the home of Wayne D. Angelo, supervisor, who resides on Mount Hammond Road.

Ballot Access Law Up Secretary of State Ken Hechler an- nounced today that the Federal District Court in Charleston has upheld West Virginia's ballot access law for third parties. The action was brought by the Socialist Workers Par- ty which sued Hechler and the members of the State Election Com- mission, seeking to be put on the ballot by asking the Court to strike down the law as unconstitutional. In his decision, Judge John T. Copenhaver, Jr., upheld West Virginia's requirement that third par- ties obtain signatures on petitions representing 1% of the votes cast in the last election. These signatures must come from registered voters who did not vote in the May party primaries. The Court also upheld the requirement that third parties pay filing fees the same as the major party candidates do, and that signers of third party petitions forfeit th right to vote in the primaries. "The Court recognized that our ballot requirements are no more stringent than the laws in other states," Hechler observed. He also said that the decision will have a calm- ing effect on the conduct dl tions. "Now that this upheld, we don't have threat of a court every four years," he Candidates Speak For Continuing its didates" ' of Jefferson Count two men seeking electi son County Commission' Garland Moore. challenger The two will speak at meeting at 11 a.m. of the educational building of Methodist church in In other business, tbe l committee will present fleers to be voted November board meeting lunch will be served membership session.
