The Jefferson West senior was picked from among 11 contestants representing the six county school districts. First runner-up was Linda Big- ham, Grantville. Second runner-up was Miriam Hays, McLouth. The three-hour program, spon- sored by the Meriden Kiwanis Club, consisted of the creative and perform- ing arts division, poise and appear- ance and youth fitness judging. Hays won the scholastic achieve- ment, judges' interviews and creative and performing arts awards. She en- tertained with a flute solo, Handel's "Fourth Sonata." Deborah Winter, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William H. Winter, Oska- loosa, was selected as a member of the 1977-78 Baker University Choir.

Lois Sanders, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Sanders, and Brad Harries, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Harries, were crowned royalty for the McLouth High School homecoming. Homecoming events were held despite the game being postponed because of rain. The homecoming football game was played the following Monday night. McLouth beat Royal Valley 28-0. 25 years ago this week Oct. 8, 1987... Christopher Banker, a senior at Jefferson County North High School, was designated a semifinalist in the 33rd annual merit program of the National Merit Scholarship Corpora- tionin recognition of hisoutstanding academic achievement.

As a semifinalist, Banker continued in the 1988 competition for about 6,000 scholarships worth more than $23 million. Barring a miracle, God's Store- house in Meriden would have to close its doors, leaving 113 families to worry where their next meal would come from. Storehouse director Lawanda Wood, Meriden, said the undertaking Peterson-Davis had become "too big physically and financially." "It takes $1,000 a month for food to meet the needs of these people. The milk bill alone runs $300 a month,": said Wood. God's Storehouse opened its doors in November 1982 and served 56 people the first year. In the first nine months of 1987, the charity assisted 2,377 people. Troy Dunnaway, son of Roy and Norma Dunnaway, Perry, and Caro- line Crawford, daughter of Jim and Bev Crawford, Perry, were chosen 1987 Homecoming King and Queen during halftime of the Perry-Lecomp: ton High School homecoming game.

Oskaloosa High School senior Jami Hermann was singled out in an all-school assembly as one of two state winners of the Horatio Alger college scholarship. Along with the $5,000 scholarship, Hermann received an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., to attend a conference with the other winners. Hermann intended to attend the University of Kansas after gradua- tion.A member of the school's Future Business Leaders of America chapter, she planned to major in business. Other Oskaloosa High School finalists were Torey Mize and Stacy Brown. The previous year, McLouth senior Christi Adcox received the scholar- ship. New tenants moving into a rural Oskaloosa home accidentally spilled between six and eight pounds of el- emental mercury left in a container. Authorities were tracking the spread of the mercury contamination- accel- erated by the tenants' failure to follow warnings to evacuate the house and leave their contaminated belongings behind. Other sites consequently affected included residences in Tonganoxie, Lawrence and Lecompton. The Os- kaloosa house was placed under guard by the Environmental Protec- tion Agency. Two people who resided briefly at the house - a woman and a toddler boy- had elevated levels of mercury in their bloodstreams and were under medical care, according to Debbie Nickels, administrator of the Jefferson County Health Depart- ment.
