Ultimately, one of the national grade-level winners will be named as the Grand National Champion. The teacher of the Grand National Champion also gets rewarded with a trip for two to Washington, DC.

Hewitt A MEMORIAL for " your deceased pet tell us a good way to deal the emptiness that follows the trauma of a dear pet's death is to find ways to memorialize his/her life. With Memorial Day upon us, a time when we remember loved ones from our human realm, we can also visit the memory of these com- panions that have also been meaningful friends. Besides paying tribute to the cats and dogs and other animals who gave so much love to our lives, we can do something for living creatures who want so much to be someone's pet. Your gift will help to establish an animal shelter here to care for the homeless. With your participation, we will get a large section in the Glenville paper for you to have a special photo of your deceased pet with his name and dates printed there for everyone to see how much you loved that four-footed pal.

Granddaughter Sherry and daughters Marina and Regina took me to Dr. Haffield for my macular degeneration and to CAMC to heart specialist, Dr. Steven Lewis, for a heart cauterization. Dr. Lewis in- stalled a stent in an artery outside my heart and said that someone needed to stay with me for 48 hours; Regina stayed with me. Then on Saturday, son Steven and grandson Ross drove up from Winchester, VA, and grand- son Matthew (Mike's son) and girl- friend, Teresa, drove up from Hun- tington and spent the day with Regina and me. One day last week, granddaughter Angela and great-grandson Kraden visited me and took me for a walk. Kraden drove his new birthday foot- pedaled John Deere tractor. Recently, Kraden celebrated his fourth birthday and got lots of nice presents. This picture of Kraden and me was taken at Easter, at daughter Marina's. Son Tim came over on Sunday and worked on the electric fence. We have been having some floods, and they are hard on electric fences. I got a really nice letter from Vir- ginia Davis, who lives in Weston. She said that after she reads my column, she cuts it out and mails it to a niece in Cincinnati. Thanks, Virginia.
