He was engaged to Andrea Chemin of Wesson. Chemin, 15, said she and Boyd had a special relationship that went beyond dating. "We weren't just boyfriend and girlfriend, we were also real good friends, too," Chemin said. "He would always express to me how he felt about things and i could talk to him, too. He was my first true love and he told me that I was his first true love." Chemin said Boyd's favorite hobby was restoring old cars. "He loved to race cars. He had just bought a '69 Camaro. It blew up the first time he was about to race it." Janice Davis of Brookhaven, Boyd's aunt, said, "He was a fun-loving type of person. He did have a temper, but most of the time he was fun loving." Davis said Boyd was determined to be like his father. "His daddy died four years ago. One of his aspirations was to follow in his footsteps," Davis said. "They worked for the same company." "Jeremy thought you had given him the highest compliment when you say he was just like his daddy." Dianne Boyd of Brookhaven, Boyd's mother, said her son "was a very sensitive and responsible person. He tried to be tough on the outside, but he was really a softie on the inside. "He thought he was the man of the house ever since his father died. "The men on the rig said they all loved him like a son," she said. Chemin said Boyd enjoyed children. "Jeremy was the godfather to our friend's baby," she said. "He wanted to be the first one to buy Blake something when he was bom. He just has a thing for kids."

The child was listed in critical but stable condition at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, said spokeswoman Barbara Austin. The type of injury was not available. The boy was hit apparently when a batter lost his grip on a bat, slinging it into the stands at Smith-Wills Stadium shortly after 5 p.m., officials said. Austin said the boy was being held overnight for observation. He was tentatively identified as Sawyer Dan-ielson. His parents' names and address were not available. The Arkansas Travelers defeated the Jackson Generals 3-2 Sunday. Game details, 1C Law to trim unlicensed Miss, barbers The Auoclated Press James Moore has seen the good, the bad and the ugly in his 45 years of clipping hair, but he is convinced a new state law will help eliminate some of the bad and ugly. The statute, which takes effect July 1, is designed to drive bootleg barbers out of business and leave hair-cutting in the hands of those who are properly trained. "We're after the guy who doesn't have a license, never has and doesn't intend to get one," said Moore, a retired barber who vowed to use his appointment to the state Board of Barber Examiners to clean up the industry. "We want to see that that license means something. I've seen some hair go around looking pretty bad." Mississippi has for decades had a series of requirements for barbers, including "good moral character." But Moore and some other barbers had complained the law had few penalties for those manning the chairs without a license. But now, the Board of Barber Examiners, which is supposed to police the state's 3,000 hair cutters, has a new weapon: Shop owners who hire unlicensed barbers can be fined $150, and if they continue to ignore the law the shop can be closed. "A whole lot of people cutting hair don't have licenses. It makes it rough on those who pay to go to school and get their licenses," Tyree Fields, who has cut hair in Jackson for 25 years, said between customers. "They should have to do it just like anyone else." Moore, the state board's secretary, said training at the nine barber schools in Mississippi includes a focus on sanitation, including attention to concerns about AIDS. "Frequently you have things like a nip of the sheers, a razor nick. Then you use it on another. If that's not sterilized, look what you have," he said. Costs for the 1,500 hours of training, usually a 10-month course, can range from $1,500 to $4,000. Vic Traxler, owner of Traxler's School of Hair in Jackson, said new barbers are learning more complex subjects. They are taught how to recognize contagious diseases, disinfect tools, give perms and color hair. Students are no longer instructed about shaving because of AIDS fears, he said. Traxler started teaching barber-ing in 1959 when the field was all-male. He said as many as 90 percent ! of the students now are women. He said legitimate shop operators have seen competitors hire unlicensed staff "off the street and there was nothing we could do." "I'd hate to go to a dentist who just had a shingle hung out or a surgeon who just had a shingle and no license and go under the knife," said Robert Raybourn, owner of Ray-bourn's Hair Center in Gulfport Raybourn said he has been approached by non-licensed cutters looking for jobs. He tells them they can start work "when you bring your license." lie parish or in a Mass offering. Joe W. Wallace route supervisor Joe W. Wallace, 61, of Hanging Moss Road, a route supervisor, died of a heart attack Friday at his home. Services are 2 p.m. today at Lakewood Funeral Home with burial in Lakewood Memorial Park. Visitation begins at 10 a.m. to Problem: Remember the feeling of being lost, separated from parents in a big store? Or lost on a hunt or hike in the woods? Solution: Teaching children the meaning of north, south, east and west is one way to begin helping them learn a sense of place or how to get from one point to another, said Kim Beason, assistant professor of exercise science and leisure management at the University of Mississippi. The outdoors specialist suggests relating nature to youngsters for lessons in direction. Be certain to check the accuracy of these indicators by comparing them with a compass, said Beason, offering the following ideas: Seek out several natural indicators. Some examples are: Insect burrows, frequently seen as blotches on trees, are found on the warm side of the tree, generally the south side; growth rings on cut stumps usually are widest on the warm (generally south) side; and tree back generally is darker, has a smoother texture and a more solid color on the north side. Observe selected star movements. Choose a clear night and set up an observation post in an open area.

U:o ncturo to tccch kick direction This feature is intended to help The Clarion-Ledgers readers cope with life's problems. A different subject will be discussed daily. long. Aim for a particular star not a satellite and set the "sighting" sticks into the ground about one foot apart. Assume a prone position behind the shorter stick, then line up the top of the short stick with the top of the taller stick, adjusting the two sticks until you line up a star. This ensures a fixed observation point. After only three or four minutes you should be able to make directional judgments based on the following: If the star disappears behind the lined-up sticks, you are facing west. If the star appears to be moving in an arc to the left, then you are facing north. If the star arcs to the right of your fixed line-of-sight, you are facing south. Any combination of up or down movement with a right or left movement will give an in-between position, such as northwest or southwest.
