“I always look for things in life
that have meaning—my environ-
mental work, zoological work, and
my future work in education.
Theatre and entertainment are my
hobbies and also have lots of mean-
ing,”Mary Ann commented.
Mary Ann, who also writes
poetry, is a welcome addition to the
BCCFA and the Bosque County ar-
tistic community.
Marissa Ann (Sissy) Zander is a
Clifton native and a 1979 Clifton
High School graduate. She and her
husband, Robbie, have two daugh-
ters, Jade, 7, and Star, 4.
Sissy works with her mother-in-
law, Bobbie Sue Zander, in photog-
raphy and video taping, and with
her father-in-law, Clifton Fire Chief
Jamie Zander, in filming Clifton
Volunteer Fire Department train-
ing videos.
Although she had no previous act-
ing experience, Sissy said that she
wanted to become involved in local
theatre to help overcome her basic
“I am shy and needed to open up
and get a hobby," she explained. “I
made new friends, opened up, found
a new meaning for community liv-
ing, and I love it!”
The tall, softspoken Sissy has the
face of an angel and long, golden
brown hair that flows over her
shoulders much like a spiritual veil.
She has a prayerful innocence
which makes her a natural for the
part of Annelle.
Sissy likes classic cars and 50s
and 60s music. One of her goals was
to have a 1955 Chevy, restore it,
and drive around listening to rock
and roll music.
Her husband, Robbie, found an
old Ford Falcon to restore, which
she says is just as good. Her other
pleasures include cherry cobbler
from Underwood’s in Waco and
listening to KLUV, a Dallas radio
station programming 50s rock
Sissy is glad that she tried out for
an acting part. Theatre patrons will
be glad, too.
These newcomers, and veteran
performers and crew members are
well into rehearsals for “Steel Mag-
nolias.” They plan for a tremendous
The first performance will be at a
dinner theatre at 7 p.m. Saturday,

Director Rebecca Strange an-
nounced that extra performances

It will be several months,
however, before the landfill is
sealed off. Several inches of dirt
and top soil must be placed on
the ground during the period
Texas Department of Health
authorities will inspect the loca-
tion to determine that state stan-
dards have been met. Such
inspections will continue for
several years.
Two municipal employees, Lee
Ybarra and Gene Troutt, will
continue to work at the landfill
for the foreseeable future. They
will do the coverage work re-
quired under state regulations,
but can accept no further dump-
ing materials.

A "Sock-It- To-Me ” Superama Solution
Too bad our nation’s leaders only
have two-track minds when it
comes to dealing with the budget
deficit — raise taxes and/or cut serv-
ices. Why can’t they exercise the
same kind of creativity and cooper-
ation that has worked so well for the
P.T.A., church groups, and other or-
ganizations when it comes to fund-
What if, for instance, Congress
were to schedule a “Sock-It-To-
Me”Superama in which people and
groups from all over the country
could gather in a huge stadium, be-
fore a sell-out crowd, and engage in
an ongoing series of events which
would include Egg Throws, Water
Dunks, Pie Throws, and so on...with
the nation's leaders as the targets?
Who, right now, wouldn’t give his
or her eyeteeth to splatter or dunk
the President, his advisors, his
Cabinet, the Senate, the House of
Representatives or all of the above?
While we’re at it, what about the In-
ternal Revenue Service?
The whole activity, while harm-
less, could be therapeutic for tax-
payers and humbling for
taxspenders. Rates or entry fees to
participate in this open season on
politicians would go to the highest
bidder (kind of like lobbying) and
just imagine the concession sales at
such an outing! Television rights
could be sold and the proceeds from
video sales would keep on coming.
This country’s bank account might
actually end up in the black!
But what if this bureaucrat bash-
To The Editor:
Thanks so much! I got out of jail!
The Jail and Bail program con-
ducted in Clifton to benefit the
Birth Defects Foundation of The
March of Dimes was a tremendous
success, netting over $2,200. My
friends in the Clifton and Meridian
area were responsible for a share of
the $420 that I collected in pledges
that I needed to pay my bail when
I, along with 13 other hearty volun-
teers, was put in the Gloff Motors
jail on Sept. 26.
I especially thank my dear friends
of the Woman’s Literary Club of
Morgan; the Hico Garden Club;
members of the Meridian Study
Club; LawBon Funeral Home; La-
dies’ Auxiliary of Veterans of For-
eign Wars Post 8559; Mrs. Larry
Bush, KWOW-FM; Dr. and Mrs.
Bill Key; Mrs. Don McMahon; do-
cents of the Bosque Memorial Muse-
um; my sweet mother, Alice Dieter,
and the Bosque County Bank. You
all responded so generously when I
called on you, so on behalf of the
Waco division of The March of
Dimes and myself, I thank each one
of you!
Remember, birth defects are
America’s most serious childhood
health problem. Every two minutes,
another American baby is bom with
one or more birth defects.
Preventing these defects is the
goal of The March of Dimes, and
you are helping!

To The Editor:
I’m taking this opportunity, Na-
tional Newspaper Week, to com-
mend you and The Clifton Record
for the service you, your staff, and
profession provide the citizens of
Clifton, Texas.
The Department of Veterans Af-
fairs, and certainly the Waco VA
Regional Office, know the value of
an informed public. Newspapers
have long been the primary source
of information for the American
people, information needed for the
public to make wise and effective
decisions that guide our nation.
In a letter to Mr. Lloyd Schem-
er, chairman of the American
Newspaper Publishers Association,
VA Secretary Edward J. Derwinski
“We need your scrutiny, your
vigilance, and persistence. We also
need thoughtful, well-researched,
and accurate reporting to fully ex-
plain the many options available to
our citizens and government.”
We concur. The free press, driven
by the Constitution’s First Amend-
ment, is a principal strength of our
nation and our community.
John W. Smith, Acting Director
Department of Veterans Affairs
Rational Office, Waco
To The Editor:
On behalf of the March of Dimes,
I would like to extend a very sincere
thank you to the people of Clifton
and the surrounding communities
for the generous support of the
March of Dimes Jail and Bail.
I am especially grateful for the ef-
fort, hard work, and devotion of the
many volunteers. In particular, a
most special thank you to Wayne
Gloff, honorary chairman, Gloff Mo-
tors (use of business), Joy Schmidt
(judge), Walter May (acting deputy),
the Ladies’ Auxiliary to Veterans of
Foreign Wars Post 8553 (Norma
Miller, Joan Hinson, Faye Johnson,
Inez Rae, Joy Schmidt, Evelyn Ter-
gerson, and Helen Putney), to the
Clifton Homemakers (supplied
refreshments), The Clifton Record,
and our jailbirds, Sharon Knus-
trom, Harold King, George Marin,
Gail West, Arlene Olsen, Cal
Foster, Terry Spicer, Janet Cole
Carter, Bob West, Rachel Schmidt,
Charles Lindley, Terrell Miller,
Sonny Golden, and Dee Sharp. The
generosity and cooperation shown
by each of them made possible the
success of the event.
A most special thank you also to
all our contributors. Without the as-
sistance from people within your
communities, the March of Dimes
would be unable to continue to pro-
tect the unborn and the newborn
through the prevention of birth
As your March of Dimes division
director, I look forward to assisting
you as you have assisted the March
of Dimes.

ing were to become a spectator sport
to rival Monday Night Football in
popularity? Or what if it replaced
baseball as America’s favorite
pastime? (God forbid that we might
have to raise the salaries of mem-
bers of Congress to that of sports
professionals!) But, you ask, “If it
catches on, who will be running the
country while these guys are play-
ing games?”
Stupid question, right?
This, of course, is only a rough
draft, but don’t you agree that it has
some genuine possibilities? If so,
you may want to clip it and mail or
fax it to your congressman before
we’re stuck with more taxes, fewer
services or the button on the dread-
ed Gramm-Rudman-Hollings
dastardly doomsday device gets
pushed. At any rate, I’d say there’s
a good chance the “Sock-It-To-Me”
Superama would appeal more to in-
cumbents than being all wet or hav-
ing egg on their faces come election
Participants will discover new ap-
proaches to help them develop top-
notch kids without blowing their
Dr. Marylea Henderson of Waco
