  • Jessica Southard says she's not a pageant girl. She's an agricultural girl, definitely; a car racing girl, certainly.

    “Years ago, my dad built a car for Buddy Hughes, who is one of the biggest watermelon growers in Newberry,” she says.

  • Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, March 19 at the Levy County Quilt Museum. It was great to get the quilts back in place after going to Trenton to the Quilt Festival. We took our Rail Fence and Alline and Cathy worked on it and we had lots of people who had never seen hand quilting. It was a great festival and we saw so many people who came to the museum.

    Doris brought in her ‘stack and whak’ quilt - so pretty. Cleo and Marge put quilts back where they came from. Now we look like we are supposed to.

  • It was difficult to tell who was more nervous, the serviceman or the group of second-graders.

    For more than an hour last week Dusty Cason answered questions from his penpals who all wanted to know more about his life in Iraq.

    The students of Katie Corbin “adopted” Cason and this school year have kept him replete with letters from home and goody boxes.

    Last week the soldier, on furlough, came by with his parents and grandparents to meet his new friends and answer their queries about the other side of the world.

  • While the Army may give a soldier all he needs to survive, sometimes the wants go ignored.

    That was the case of Sgt. Sarah Wines who wanted, not only for her but the 25 percent of soldiers who are women, a better grade of toiletries.

    The Army provides basic shampoos and toothpaste, but anyone who has ever used them will attest they leave a lot to be desired.

    Telling her grandma Lillian Welkie of her wish list, it soon became VFW Post 5625 Auxiliary to the rescue.
