CLINCH COUNTY NEWS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1990 Page 4 I from Valdosta State College by Marths Gibson A wonderful way to introduce young people to symphDnic miisic is to take them to a performance by people their own age. Just such a program will be presented at Valdosta State College on Friday, November 30, when the Gwinnett County Honor Orchestra, composed of around 35 high school age string musicians, will play works by Haydn, Bach and others. There is no admission fee for the concert. It will be in Whitehead Auditorium in the Fine Arts Building (just across from the'parking lot) and will begin at 8:15 in the evening. In our area of the country, most young people do not have opportunities to hear live performances by orchestras; therefore, many of them grow up without the understanding and appreciation of great music that would enrich their lives. I urge all area parents to bring their children to this exciting concert by outstanding young musicians. It will be an evening that all ages will enjoy and remember. Also of interest to young string students is the string workshop to be conducted Saturday, December 1, from 9 until 11:15 am in the Fine Arts Building. The VSC string faculty will be the instructors and all string students are invited to participate in the workshop. There is no admis- sion fee. Just call the VSC Music Department at (912) 333-5804 to reserve a place. The concert and workshop are sponsored by the Valdosta State College Music Department and the Valdosta Symphony Guild. This is the beginning of the establishment of a string program for the schools of the area and also a youth orchestra. The Gwinnett County string program began in 1981 as a'pilot program with one teacher and 50 sixth grade students. Currently, string classes are offered in every Gwinnett County middle and high school in grades six through twelve, with fourteen teachers providing daily instruc- tion to approximately 1,200 students.

At Abraham Baldwin Meeting W'fll Guage Interest In Evening Nursing Program TIFTON--For those who want to become nurses but whose schedules do not allow them to attend col- lege during the day, an important date is coming up. A meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on November 27 in the dining hall at Tilt General Hospital for those who are interested in Abraham Baldwin Col- b,ge instituting an evening nursing program on its Tifton campus. Joy Conger, chairperson of Abraham Baldwin's Department of Nursing, said, "The purpose of this area, the University Sys- meeting is to see if there is tem should meet it." enough community inter- Loyd said that in addi- est for an evening program tion to community meet- for nursing students here ings, a survey is currently in Tifton.

Headquarters, 265th Engineer Group in Mari- etta with an authorized strength of 73. 122nd Support Center iRear Area) in Lawrence- ville with an authorized strength of 66. The order placing them on alert is involuntary and, upon their mobili- enrollment of 30 students in fall 1989 and this fall has 67 students, a 123 percent increase. The nurs- ing profession is growing by leaps and bounds, and the logical extension of that is our offering an even- ing program in nursing here in Tifton." Conger said if an even- ing nursing program is established in Tifton, it will be modeled on the evening program Abra- ham Baldwin offers in Valdosta in conjunction with Valdosta State Col- lege. "This is our fourth year in Vaidosta," Conger said, "and we've had a wonderful response. The class is full every year, and the state board pass rate is the same as that of the day program at Abraham Bald- win, averaging 96 percent. The students have jobs before they graduate, so there's no problem find- ing employment." Conger said the majo- rity of the people entering the Valdosta program are more often secretaries or bank employees than licensed practical nurses. "So this is a good oppor- tunity for anyone seeking a new career or who is re- tiring and looking for a new line of work," Conger added. For further information, call Conger at (912) 386- 3937. During an Athletic Boosters Club meeting held last Thursday night, there were several remarks made about how confusing and unorganized the recent Flag.-Pee-Wee--Midget season had been. The undersigned coaches of these teams have a very different opinion than the one expressed at the Boosters Club meeting. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Jot West for the job he did as director in running the program this past season. The games were well organized, started on a timely basis, and officials were always present. Mr. West was enthusiastic and very supportive of all the teams throughout the season.

Letter From Clinch High School November 12, 1990 Dear Friends: Clinch Countians you are the greatest!! You made this Homecoming 1990 one of the best ever. A special thanks to all who helped in any way (big or small). R takes all of us - students, faculty, parents, businesses, and commu- nity pulling and working together. You know that' s what makes our small community of Clinch County so special - we care and we want the very best for our youth - aca- demics and athletics. The week of Home- coming takes a lot of plan- ning, hard work, effort and sacrifices. Along the way we might have a flare of temper or frustrations but when it's over we can look back and remem- ber these are the "good ole times." We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those students, parents, businesses, peo- ple who let us use their trucks, trailors, gas and drivers, etc., police and sheriff' s departments, fire department, mainten- ance department, people who let us use their cars for the parade and home- coming representatives and the cleaning crew. A spe- cial thanks to Brockway Standard for cardboard and bonfire materials, the Little Suwannee Lum- ber Co. and Container for the lumber, Flowers by Carylene for the beau- tiful corsages for the re- presentatives, the queen's bouquet, and the escorts boutonnieres and also to Slash Pine EMC who are so kind to let us use their nice facility which is large enough to house the big floats and provides light and shelter as well as a place where everyone can work together. A thank you to Cathy Thornton, Dr. Lee and the admini- strative and coaching staff of the Homerville Elemen- tary Middle School for the new parade line up. We would also like to publicly thank Heritage Builders for sponsoring the minia- ture footballs during the football season. We would like to write everyone an individual thank you letter but that's almost impossible because it takes so many to make the entire week a success including the bonfire, parade, queen crown- ing and game and we wouldn't want to leave anyone unthanked. Let us close by saying a big thank you and that we sin- cerely appreciate all the support and participation to make our community of Clinch County the great place it is. Sincerely, Jean Leccese JoAnn Tomlinson Homecoming Chairpersons I Even though the nlcotlne in cigaretts is addictiv, millions of Amerlcans top smoking each year.

I Respiratory Hazards & Confined Spaces ,: (By CHnch County Farm Bureau) Urgan dwellers concern- '~ ed about air pollution from emissions from autos, industry and home heating ~0 may envy farmers with 'e "all that fresh air." But the ~ air farmers breath often is no better and may even be life-threatening with the dust, organic k~ I gases, chemicals, aller- gens and such. Entering confined spaces can be dangerous without appro- priate protective measures. * When working around silos, bins and manure storage, you're dealing ~$ with confined space haz- ards - toxic gases, lack of oxygen, entrapment.~ Know the hazards and be properly equipped. * Due to risk of exposure s to nitrogen dioxide and car- a bon dioxide and other gases, stay out of silos during filling and for 3 weeks thereafter unless J you wear an air-supplying ~ respirator. Post a silo gas warning and declare them off-limits to everyone. * Always ventilate the silo headspace before en- try. Wear a lifeline and have outside help avail- able. * Before entering a grainbin, open it up to allow fresh air to circulate. If possible, blow air in to remove harmful dust and gases. Use a lifeline and lock out the unloading me- chanism. * Never enter a manure pit or spreader tank with- out an air-supplying res- pirator and lifeline connect- ed to someone outside the danger area. * Provide strong venti- lation during pumping and agitating manure. Evacu- ate animals and keep child- ren and non-workers out of the area. * Wear the appropriate respirator when applying chemicals, spray painting, working in dusty condi- tions and where you may breathe allergens. Use the proper cartridge or canister for the chemical. Make sure the respirator fits properly. * Reduce air pollutants by Good Housekeeping operating to reduce dust, and by proper storage of chemical products and fuel. 000000 000 OeeleO 00000000 eeOC List Your Property {Courteous And Professional Service) FOR SALE Reg. 602 N.
