From left to right are Allison Butler, Annamoriah Tuell, Kassity McCollum, and Emma Hickman. They gave individual reports of what they had learned to the local ladies at their Mon., Nov. 8 Woman's Club meeting in the Presbyterian Church's Fellowship Hall. Allison Butler, the Club's 2004 Girl's State representative from Normantown, stressed that her program was a "real learning experience," emphasizing the gaining of knowledge of the political election process. "1 was elected a senator, but other girls were elected mayors and even county sheriffs," she relays, smiling, "It was really great seeing a girl as a sheriff. I learned so much about government and how important it is." Annamoriah Tuell, of Sand Fork, was the Woman's Club's 2004 Black Walnut Festival princess at the annual festin October. Before the start of the festival in Spencer, she found it instructional to become involved in a Roane County civic project to help youths. Then, on that Saturday, she recalls with a smile, "At the parade, it was raining, hailing, and cold, but it was still a nice experience. They close down everything in Spencer for this parade." Kassity McCollum, a GCHS junior, represented the Woman's Club at the 2004 Hugh O'Brien Young Ambassador's program. Providing leadership training to young people, the O'Brien camp emphasized service to your home community. She said that she sat in on programs dealing with the media's influence, the state's future, and the Internet, among others. "We even got a chance to meet Joe Manchin, the state's next governor," she adds, Emma Hickman got a Woman's Club scholarship to attend the Junior Conservation Camp. "We had big campfires at night, and during the day, learned about the importance of recycling, knowing about wildlife and tree identification," she outlined, adding that they also were taught how to camp out, do archery and make craft products from natural materials (Staff photo by Dave Corcoran, Sr.) lenville Woman's more ut their sc experiences d u ri n ub members learn holarship winners' their summer camps CAREN WHITE REMEMBERS...--."The Ralph and Susie Perrines home in Shock was the favorite place to "Trick or Treat."

A CHILDREN'S PARADE-- About 20 children -- all in horrifying, or beautiful, or creative-looking costumes --participated in the 2004 Rite Aid Children's Halloween Parade at the Hays City pharmacy on Sat. evening, Oct. 30. And, for being in the annual youth parade, each child received several pieces of candy, according to store manager Arbutus Sims. "We do this for the benefit of the children every year," she relates. Moreover, Marian Osborne, another Ride Aid employee, led the parade around the building several times in order to give the kids a real good time, states Asst. Manager Susan Keith. All in all, these kids got a good head-start on that evening's neighborhood Trick or Treating which took place afterwards.

Principi recently announced up to $15 million in additional re- search funding for Gulf War ill- nesses. "We still don't have a definitive cause for Gulf War illnesses," Principi said. "There has to be a reason why some of our veterans came home healthy, while others serving alongside them did not." Although the Department of Vet- erans Affairs (VA) is still examin- ing the committee's detailed, 143- page report, Principi said he is con- vinced there is sufficient justifica- tion for further scientific research. The funding commitment repre- sents the department's single larg- est set-aside of research funding for a specific area of investigation and could constitute up to nearly 20 per- cent of VA's new research grant awards for FY 2005. Over the past decade, VA has spent more than $50 million for research into Gulf War illnesses, and much of that work is still ongoing. "I appreciate,the hard work done during the last two and a half years by my special advisory committee, led by Jim Binns," Principi said. "I know they share my commitment to solve this mystery." The l l-member committee, for- mally known as the Research Advi- sory Committee on Gulf War I11- nesses, was appointed by Principi in January 2002.
