!!i!i~!~ !!! : i i~ ii availability of $10 (AIC) million a for Agriculture 'DOG DAYS' BLUE RIBBON -- Although the Annual Farm Show took place during the "Dog Days" of summer (September 2-6), those extremely hot and humid days didn't burn out the high spirits of 4-H'er Samatha Marks, a 16-year-old Gilmer County High School sophomore from Stout's Mills. Ironically, her project was "Wiggles and Wags" -- an instructive project about how to take care of your dogs, especially boxers. "1 did this display in memory of my boxer, "Sadie," who didn't get to participate in this show as I had wanted her to do," Samatha, a member of the Cedarville Centurion 4-H Club, explains. Sadie would, no doubt, be proud of the Blue Ribbon effort of Samatha, too. (Staff photos by Dave Corcoran, St'.) PIECED QUILT PRIZES -- Doris Gerwig Norman, of Normantown, took a Second Place for this beautiful Scalloped Bargello quilt. "It took me one month to quilt it, but this whole handicrafted project extended over a one year period," she describes, noting that quilting is fun and relaxing for her. Also, crocheting must be enjoyable for this lady who won a Blue Ribbon at the annual Farm Show for her crocheted table cloth. VEGGIE LOVER -- Billy Burke, of Titan Farms, smiles broadly as he proudly holds his "Medley of Vegetables" which won a Blue Ribbon at the Farm Show. A long- time Sand Fork farmer and former state legislative leader, Billy currently serves as Risk Management Coordinator of the West Virginia Department of Agriculture. And, he's also a master gardener, with his wife, Marge, adding a valuable assist. THE END -- By the Farm Show's concluding day -- Sat. afternoon, Sept. 6, little Jenny Edmon was so tired that she rested her head on her father, Richard, the Huntington Bank branch manager in Harrisville. Richard, a Tanner resident who is very active in this Farm Bureau show annually, reports that over 150 people watched the cattle show that morning in the Agncultural Barn. "This Farm Show needs to be done because it promotes our rural hedtage to other people," he affirms, noting: "It would be nice to have it in conjunction with a County Fair too."
