MM siGir Grandma watches r cartoon show to see him By STEVE METSCH Herald & Review Lifestyle Writer , There's a touch of Decatur on national TV. RonReaco Lee appears on "Tom and Jerry's Super Station Funhouse," a cartoon show featured on Turner Broadcasting System. ; The cable station is broadcast coast to coast. In Decatur, the show airs at 5:05 a.m. and 2:05 pjn. on Channel 11 (UA Cablesys-tems of Illinois). RonReaco, 11, is .one of the children featured in the cartoon's .opening segment "We carry pieces of puzzles," be explained in a telephone interview, "and all of a sudden the puzzle becomes animated. Another iscene has us carrying an animated zipper which opens and bal-ioons fly out of it" z Being on national TV has Ron-iReaco happy. "It feels good," he admitted, "especially when I found out my jgrandma could watch it." His grandmother is Mary Fakes of Jecatur. Z Performing isn't new for Ron-Jteaco. - Before he and his parents, Blackie and Judy Lee, moved to Stone Mountain, an Atlanta, Ga., isuburb, in late 1985 he took part in Sacting classes with the Decatur 7TNCA and Decatur Park District Jtecreation Department Z "My mother saw an ad in the Jiaper one day," he recalled. "I earned a few things how to Jantomime, things like that" - His father headed south when Jie got a job with Lockheed Geor-:gia. Once again, the acting bug bit RonReaco. He found an agency and began modeling clothes on TV ids for an Atlanta department itore. He also portrayed a football player for a building supply store's TV commercial. ; The exposure worked. Representatives from Turner Broadcasting liked what they saw. They contacted the talent agency RonRea co works through. His secret to success: "They liked my pictures." RonReaco auditioned for "Kids' Beat," a TV show with a children's point of view toward world and national news. "I pray to God I get it" RonReaco said. When not acting, the 4-foot-6, 87-pound boy settles down to life as a sixth-grader. "Acting hasn't affected my school work," he proudly said. "I get pretty good grades. Nothing has changed. And, I'm happy about that." Mother Judy is his No. 1 fan. "I know this is just the beginning," she said. "He's a determined child, and you can't go wrong with that" RonReaco Lee 1 2 Whew Front Orsc InstaH Nw Front Brake Pads 2 Wheel Drum Type Install New Brake Linings $15.00 Extra on Metallic Brakes MARTY'S TIRE CENTER 4088 2760 N.
