Texas 4-H program will celebrate its 90th birthday during 1998. Texas 4-H enrollment totals 624,724, and this milestone will have a number of "special events" throughout the year in Lamar County and across the state. Some of the county events will be window decorating, poster contests and exhibits. Statewide events include Texas 4-H Day at the Ballpark in Arlington, Celebrating 90 Years of Youth Development and special State 4- H Roundup activities on the campus of Texas A&M University. With this in mind, I would like to make you aware of the top 10 reasons for youth to join 4-H. 1. develop skills to succeed in the workplace, 2. improve goal-setting and decision-making skills, 3. become a community leader, 4. go to 4-H "Citizen Washington Focus" or National 4-H Congress, 5..learn to care for and make decisions about the environment and animals, Courtney Osbourn County Extension Agent 6. meet kids from across the state and country, 7-. participate in numerous local, county, district, state and national contests, 8. discover how our government works, 9. teach other members and peers, and 10. have lots of fun in 4-H. All this and more is possible. Each individual uses his or her own talents to create unique experiences through the 4-H. Young people participate in 4- H through clubs, special interest groups, camps and many other activities. 4-H is the largest non-formal youth education organization in the United States. It reaches more than 5.4 million youngsters every year through its mission "to create supportive environments for culturally diverse youth and adults to reach their fullest potential." What does this mean? Youth involved in 4-H have the opportunity to develop and strengthen life skills. This includes workforce, decision- making and leadership skills, which are crucial to success in today's society. Ultimately, young people gain beneficial lifetime expericnes through 4-H and become better prepared adults. The 4-H program is open to all youth ages 9-19, regardless of race, gender, socioeconomic leve'i, religion, disability or national origin.

PICK THREE * Texas Lottery (mewing. Millionaire wins lottery Associated Press WASHINGTON — A millionaire congressman from Wisconsin says his wealth had nothing to do with winning a $250,000 lottery jackpot. All it took was a $2 ticket — and the correct numbers. "I faced the same long odds that anybody does who buys lottery tickets," Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr. said Tuesday. He said he carried the winning ticket around in his billfold for nearly two weeks before going in Tuesday to claim what he thought was a $10 prize in Washington's QuickCash lottery game. "I thought I'd won 10 bucks, and (the clerk's) eyes fell out and he said, 'My friend, you've won a quarter of a million,'" Sensenbrenner said. He said he couldn't call himself a regular player of the lottery.
