There will be a country and old time music sing (including gospel music) Saturday,
October 12, starting at 6 P. M. at the Creston Community Building. "Old Timers" can
remember when Bill and Mildred Lynch put on the sings at Creston for years. All
singers, musicians and the public are invited. Those who haven't been to Creston for
a spell might be amazed at the new painted look of the old school house as work has
continued since the big work day and, this week, the outside painting should be
The Creston area received some more fine rain, thanks to Lilly.
Kenny Grady reported that "Sunshine" at Elizabeth stayed put and worked hard until
"Sunshine" from Calhoun came along and started taking her to meetings, etc.
It was learned on good authority, Hur Mayor, Louie "Truth Teller" Slider, that the Old
Furniture salesman is "losing it". Seems he may have been faking some of those long
varmit shots and such would explain why he went hunting up in Ohio rather than kill
local vermin. One observer noted that "The gun cracked, a cloud of dust rose but the
whistle pig stood there completely unconcerned as no lead went near". . .
Susan Meyers, Nancy & Anna Engelke and Fritzina Katz motored to Petersburg to
visit Keith Collins who is engaged in pedagogical activities there. Now, it seems
Anna was sleeping on a bed and a water glass was near. Fritzina and Wilbur decided
it was time for Anna to arise so they pushed the glass over and splashed the water in
her face and then sat and watched with amusement.
Former Creston, St. Marys & Grantsville resident Phillip Farson couldn't see because
of the beer truck parked in front of Dick's Market in Elizabeth so he tried to hurry over
into the northbound land of W. Va. 14. When he did he found Alvin Engelke in a DOH
Jeep going southbound. Metal, plastic, glass etc. crumpled, bent, broke and Deputy
Peck had to be called to the scene.
Local residents hear that various members active in the military service are making
moves thanks to the activities of the nasties who brought us "9-11", West Nile virus,
etc. regardless of the posturing of some pompous politicians. Some of the modern
day Neville Chamberlains claimed that oil would go to $100/bbl with economic ruin.
The price of local crude fell to $26/bbl on Friday for what that might be worth. If the
nasties were allowed to win, America could live like Taliban controlled Afghanistan.
One might wonder how that would impact the finances of those who make such loud
noises - maybe, in addition to owning abortion parlours they own burkha
There will be a food handler's class October 16, 2002 at 7 P. M. at the Senior Citizen's
Office in Elizabeth.
Gladys Martin, age 94, passed away October 5 in Melbourne Florida. She was the
mother of Nancy Engelke. She had been in failing health for the last 2 or 3
Local residents did quite well thinning the busytails. While the drought and late
spring freeze eliminated mast in some sections there are, in places, plenty of acorns,
hickory and walnuts. The deer are thick with, apparently, only a few with trophy
racks. Of course while some hunt for antlers (it is said that when ground they make a
potion that helps with the ladies) others simply hunt for meat. It's like what the sign
said "Vegetarian - an old Indian word for bad hunter."
Speaking of hunting, it is said that Bobby and Tom are going elk hunting in Colorado
and that they are going to share a pup tent.
