CHAMPION‚ÄĒAugust 28, 2006


        News has reached the Champion community that its former long time resident, Mrs. Clifford Wrinkles, has suffered a mishap that has resulted in a plaster cast on her foot together with admonitions to stay off the foot for two weeks.  This will work a hardship on Ms. Wrinkles who is routinely more active than most.

        Harley and Barbara Krider are home at Champion from their Illinois residence and plan to stay through the Champion School Reunion to be held Saturday, September 2nd.  They will tend to their property and enjoy visiting with family and friends.

        A notebook is being made available at the Henson store for the use of anyone who has a story to share about the late Ed Henson.  For example, he once told a young new-comer who was working up her first garden to be sure to wrap her seed potatoes in newspaper.  This, he explained, was to keep the dirt out of their eyes.  Mr. Henson’s humor and good natured friendliness are largely responsible for shaping the general pleasant character of the Champion community.

        Jackie Coonts was heard to say that the seed ticks are currently out in force.
