Cold Weather and solid water pipes came to the Creston area and finally there was a (relatively) significant snow. The men on the road crew actually got to plow some snow from the roadways.

Keith Collins, his mother and grandmother, were attending to business at the Creston auction. They later went to the Newark auction since grandma was looking for some furniture, but were less impressed there.

Don Rhodes brother Leon passed away and was buried out by the church on Ground Hog.

Rev. and Mrs. Lewis Villers are moving to Charleston.

Taylor Davis was calling on Amy N. Ferrell.

Mark "Old Lizard" Shimer was calling on Mr. and Mrs. Carl Ferrell. "Old Lizard" has been up in Ohio for some time.

Mr. and Mrs. "Bub" Ferrell and sons "Punkin," Ray, Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Westfall, Alley Oop and Austin were among those visiting Mr. and Mrs. Carl Ferrell.

Some local residents attended the David O'Dell concert at Heritage Park in Spencer. As usual, David, along with Bobby Taylor, Jim Martin and a Whited from TN who was a national flat picking champ provided wonderful music to the full house. Earlier there had been a reception at the former Albert Heck (F. F. McIntosh) Mansion, situate between Imperial Gardens and Roane General Hospital. Jake Krack and some younger musicians played at the reception and after the formal program.

The folks at the Creston Church would like to thank the anonymous donor who provided 20 gift certificates for Christmas presents for youth who attend the church. It was also reported that insulation is being added to the ceiling of the church.

The direct marketing association meeting will be held February 1-2 at the Ramada Inn in Wheeling. Details may be obtained by calling 293-6131, extension 4231 or by logging on to http://wvu.edu/.

Enron continues to be in the news both locally and on the national scene. Sen. Dashol is planning on using the company's fall as grounds to impeach Bush since "Bush knew the top management." But then again, Mr. Lay knew the prior residents of the White House. During Hillary and Bill's administration Enron wanted to build a power plant in Mozambique (so there would be lights in the jungle and baboons would have traffic control, apparently) but the local folks weren't too sure about signing for the $700 million project. Then Tony Lake pointed out that if the impoverished nation wanted the promised $44 million in U.S. taxpayer foreign aid, they would sign. Of course they signed where told.

There was also a big deal in Croatia that Enron wanted but the dictator (president of that section) was wanted in The Hague for war crimes. To smooth out the Enron deal the war crimes charges were taken care of by the U. S. State Department.

With all this as background it is no wonder that Enron went bust but it might be a stretch to use it to impeach the President.

Ardent Resources drilled in their well on Bull River and ran pipe in the hole. They had to use a heavy drilling mud to keep the well under control. Cabot reported they weren't happy with their well on Road Fork and that they had drilled out laterals in four directions. However, the other night the flare from gas produced from the drilling could be seen for miles causing the fire department to be called. Cabot called it "a controlled burn."

Anna Engelke, Keith Collins, Joel Hartshorn, Becky McDade and Corey spent three days visiting at the McDade residence near Nashville, TN and six days in New Orleans. They went on a carriage ride, went shopping, listened to music, visited the graveyards and lake Ponchatrain and observed the architecture and iron work in the French Quarter. Fritzina was visiting the Richardsonville road whilst her mistress was in the south.

Ione Louise Clinton, 96, passed away in a rest home in Coolville, Ohio. She was born in Creston, the daughter of the late Allen and Jesse Morrison Holstein. Her family moved to van Buren, Washington.

Goldie McCroskey Underwood, 87, passed away after an unexpected illness. She was the widow of Berton J. McCroskey and Russell Underwood and had lived an active life.

It was reported by good authority that the Old Furniture Salesman was upset over someone reporting that he kilt a trophy buck with a 410 slug at 453 yards. Apparently the deer was on posted property or somethin'. By Alvin Engelke
