Children attend camp
The Great Spirit of Rock Eagle Nation smiled on his 4-H "Indian children" last week, and for the first time this season the closing ceremony of the camp was held under the stars.
Enjoying the Indian-style outing were a total of 927 4-H Club members. Columbia County, with 107 delegates, had the largest group present.
Citizens of Tomorrow
George Stanley Fuller, 5, and Cindy Ann Fuller, 2, children of Mr. and Mrs. H.L. Fuller of Evans, and Stephen Thompson, 17 months, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Marcus Thompson of Evans, were named Columbia News Citizens of Tomorrow for the week of July 10, 1958.
Hunting area open
The Clark Hill management area, which has been managed one year over prescribed minimum requirements, will be opened this fall for controlled deer hunting, Director Fulton Lowell of the Game and Fish Commission announced.
There will be two hunts on the area with a limited number of hunters on each, Lovell said. The commission's Game Management Division has drawn up regulations to permit 50 hunters on each hunt.
Farm loans repaid
Farmers who have borrowed from the government to finance grain storage facilities are repaying the money with interest and on schedule, according to the Columbia County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Office.
Since this special loan program began in 1949, Columbia County farmers have borrowed $900 to finance approximately 2,700 bushels of grain storage capacity. A total of $680 has been repaid.
Top bass lake
Five Georgia lakes, including Clarks Hill, have been named among the nation's 100 top bass lakes by a national outdoor magazine, "Outdoor Life."
Also selected were lakes Burton, Chatuge, Sinclair and Seminole.
