18 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE -- THURSDAY, DECEMBER I, 1988 MIDDLEWAY Naomi Barrow Dial 725-2500 WOWl The fifth grade science class at South Jefferson Elementary School made the front page of the Spirit of Jefferson last week. Isn't that great? They are working hard to win the com- petition to name the new orbiter the United States will send into space in the future. Many from our area are in this grade and one is my grand- daughter, Debbie Ring, along with Lynette Dodson, Heather Kackley, Brian Bowers, Stacey Householder, Erin Lee, Sarah Markely, Jessica Mauck, Kathy Dunn and Carol Cross. Best of luck to all and their teacher, Tucker Wells. We hope they select the name you selected, "Victoria." Keep up the good work, we are proud of all of you. William Friend spent the past two weeks with Mr. and Mrs. James Hamner, Morgantown, where Mr. Hamner is receiving treatment and doing nicely. Joining Mr. Friend and the Hamner's for the week of Thanksgiving were Mrs. Friend, _Anessa, Scott and Kyle. They spent their time between the Hamner's home in Parso and Mgantown. The Jubilators gave an outstanding performance on music in hymns and Christmas songs Sunday afternoon at the Middleway United Methodist Church. There was a good attendance and following the music program, a covered dish dinner was served. Beautiful performance. Mr. and Mrs. Roy Miller, Bluefield, W. Va., spent the Thanksgiving holi- day with Connie and Harry Shirley, Sean, Lisa, Sherry and Krista. CHURCH NEWS The Methodist Youth Fellowship will hold a lighting of the Christmas tree on the lawn of the Middieway United Methodist Church Saturday evening, December 10, at 7 p.m. Following the lighting, refreshments will be served. Jakie and Sandy Gruber are the leaders of the MYF and they invite the community to come and share this event. The street light committee awarded prizes for donations Friday evening, November 18, at Nick's Grocery. First place, country ham, Mrs. Helen McZlroy, Ranson; second place, $20 in groceries, Stephen Ring, Vfllage; third place, turkey, Norval Johnston, BAKERTON Bill Theriault Dial 876-3321 Don't get me wrong. I love Thanksgiving. It's been a week now, and I'm gradually beginning to recover. The leftover turkey is almost gone, but the turkey soup may last un- til the spring thaw. The turkey salt and pepper shakers have been put away (the ones that keep falling over). The turkey tablecloth survived another year, although it looked like one of those "before" pictures that television commercials use to sell miracle detergents. ("I can't believe he clean- ed the elephant with it! ") The turkey pictures have been untaped from the refrigerator and the windows. I've been thinking a lot about food lately. It comes with the season. Now it's a proven fact that some of the greatest ideas of all time have come to people when they were think- ing about food. Do you think Isaac Newton would have gotten anywhere if it hadn't been for that apple? Would Alexander Graham Bell have bothered to invent the telephone if he hadn't wanted a pizza delivered? Would Marie Antoinette have...(Forget about that one. ) Anyway, out of my thoughts on the nature of turkey has come one of the biggest money making ideas since the invention of egg foo yung. I need to ease you into this one gradually, so let me give you a hint. Does the slogan "Avoid the Bold" do anything for you? No? Well, then name a fast food fran- chise that delivers its product to your door and that probably doesn't do much business on Thanksgiving (or Christmas for that matter). Now com- bine that underused resource with the knowledge that some people don't like to cook big turkey dinners. What do you get? Why, Turkey Hut, naturally. Here's how it works. First, you rent those empty pizza parlors and use the idle pizza ovens to create turkey pizza. That's stuffing crust covered with turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and gravy. (Anchovies are extra). Then add a piz- za pie. A real pie. I mean mix and match wedges of apple, blueberry, mince, cherry, pumpkin, and whatever on one of those pizza pans. Now top this masterpiece with an in- sulated cover that looks like an authen- tic 20-pound turkey, throw in a free liter of bicarbonate of soda, and you're ready to roll. Bring your Polaroid along so you can give your customers a couple of snapshots of the fake turkey dinner for the folks back home. For people who want this to look like a BIG occasion, you can bring along some cardboard cutouts of Madonna, Arnold Schwart- zeneger, and the Ayatolla. Everybody comes out ahead. The pizza places make money, people don't like to cook or clean up can be done in a jiffy, and everyone can get on with the real reason for Thanksgiving. The one that makes it so special. Watching football games. What did those pilgrims ever do without television? Now that I've got your attention, let me tell you what I've got planned for Christmas... RURITAN ANNUAL DINNER The Bakerton Ruritan will hold its annual dinner meeting (not turkey) at The Anvil Restaurant in Harpers Ferry Tuesday evening, December 20. The club's officers for 1989 will be in- ducted at this meeting. Dinner is free to members. Call Milt Phenneger for Kearneysville.

"DAVID" David has terminal cancer and is 12 years old. He has from four to six months to live. He doesn't want money or food, but his last wish is to receive enough homemade cheer or get well cards for a new record for the Guln- ness Book of World Records for the most homemade cards. He wants to be remembered by setting this new record. Please help, you can make the difference and while he is looking at these cards, he can forget about himself. His address is: David, P.O.

Dodson and Reynolds Grove. The Ruritan will be holding an ob-., jectives committee meeting after the holidays to plan events for the coming year. This would be a good meeting for you to attend whether you're a member or not, because the kinds of suggestions being made so far may surprise the community. Like what? Well, they may be interested in spen- cling a substantial amount of money and effort to improve local recrea- tional facilities. They'd also like to make 1989, Bakerton's Centennial, a year that everyone will remember for a long time.
