Local singer begins recording career
The voice belonging to Shirley Liverett is now being heard all over the radio. The song, Love Got in the Way, written by Ray White, a Columbia County resident, was released last week to radio stations in 19 states.
Shirley, who is also a Columbia County resident, has performed with the Tune Twisters, played in fairs, local clubs and lodges, went overseas to sing in the European circuit, and has performed with Buck Owens.
Born in Hollywood, she began her career doing radio work and soap operas in Long Beach, California.
"They didn't discover me in California, so I left," she joked. Shirley has been living in the Augusta area ever since.
So, does Shirley want to continue her professional career in singing? "Yes, I love it. It's my world. I'm very much at home on the stage.'
4-Hers place at District meet
Jeff Gore is one out of approximately 30 young 4-H'ers who recently went to Rock Eagle for the District Project Achievement (DPA) for Juniors. Jeff chose Plants and Soil as his project, in which he controlled light and soil conditions of growing plants.
The DPA competition is the basis for which all 4-H activities stem its project work. The competition has been in effect since 4-H began in the early 1900's. The competition encourages boys and girls, grades 7 and 8, to become involved on a project that they are interested in. The projects include: Safety, Forestry, Wildlife, Photography, Food Preparation, and Arts and Crafts.
Jeff's project placed him in second place in his category. Other district winners include: Shirley Ann Cumming, second place in Foods and Nutrition; Patrick Marshall, second place in Forestry; Deborah Bailey, third place in Foods and Nutrition; Veronica Cartledge, third place in Fruits and Nuts; Kookie Kerely, third place in Conservation; Ben Wells, third place in Photography.
