I would like to submit the name of the late Doyle Ballengee for the Shining Star Award. Doyle served, and helped build, churches in the areas where he lived all of his adult life. He did everything from home visitation, driving church buses, teaching Sunday school, to serving as a missionary to the local prison.

As a statement to his service, nine ministers of churches he had served attended his funeral at Victory Baptist Church in October of this year. Wherever good things were happening, Doyle was there! He was absolutely the best brother-in-law a person could have! We miss him very much...Dr. Russell Everson

Betty and Marvin Wilson for their love, care, support and dedication they have given to so many children for over 17 years in the Foster Care Program...Ronda Wilson

Tom Gainer for his dedicated service to the Calhoun County Library and many other ways he has given of himself to his neighbors and the community...Calhoun Library

The Grantsville Lion's Club, among the last great civic organizations in the county, and their few members who actually show up and help with many projects in the county, not the least being providing glasses for dozens and dozens of needy kids over the years...Anonymous

To Deward Offutt for his over 40 years of service to the community and farmers of Calhoun County, to be recognized this week for his efforts...Calhoun Commission
