Page S---- The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder --Thursday, Aug. 12, 2004 I 0' I JoAnn Woodyar d 462-7O93 STEPHANIE Local farmers attended the National Jr. Angus Show in Kansas City, MO on July 12-17. There were 26 states represented, 1228 cattle, 650 junior Angus members and over 800 people who attended the opening ceremo- nies on July 13. Burke Holvey from Sand Fork, ac- companied by her grandparents Bill and Marge Burke, traveled the 860 miles from their farm to the American WILLIS, WHITNEY SIMMONS, OLIVER IRONS, AND BURKE HOLVEY Bowl Runner-up Royal Complex in Kansas City. Burke entry competed with two heifers. Bill drove the truck and trailer from home to Kansas City all in one day, quite a chore for a young man. The most outstanding competition was the National Quiz Bowl Compe- tition. The West Virginia Team con- sisted of Stephanie Willis, Whitney Simmons, Oliver Irons, and was led by Burke Holvey. To be able to first compete, there is a preliminary test to single out the top eight teams out of the 36. WV scores in the top eight. The competition was singles elimination and there were three rounds. In the first round, WV competed against Kansas. The final score was 40--20 with a WV victory, the second round was against Wis- consin with a great victory, but unfor- tunately, they came up short with a 65-45 loss, that named them the Na- tional Quiz Bowl Runners-up. Cottage Fund The Gilmer County CEOS has received a donation of $2500.00 from Mary Young in memory of Maynard F. Young. Mr. Young was a 4---H member since 1932 and played the piano and guitar to entertain people. Maynard attended state 4-H camp at Jackson's Mill. Maynard and Hilda Hogue were chosen to represent West Virginia4-H at Washington, DC one year. Miss. Young writes "in memory of what 4-H gave to my brother, I would like to give to the remodeling of the G timer Cottage." When Maynard attended 4--H at Ill I I Jackson's Mill, the most popular song was "Bugs," which went something like this: I've studied bugs for years and years; I know them all my name and every new one that appears soon hears about my name They are my friends they treat me right, my welfare they promote But the bug that slept with me last night certainly got my goat Miss. Young has the other verses to the song. The CEOS want to-thank Miss. Young for her generous donation.
