Dan Stout Special Correspondent The Callaway Cavaliers defeated the Manchester Blue Devils by a score of 6-5 in the opening round of the Pacelli Invitational Tournament Monday. The game was part of the week-long Pacelli Invitational Tournament that will feature area teams from all classifica- tions. Stadium light failure and cold temperatures hampered play and held the game to only five innings. MANCHESTER HEAD coach Chip Medders started Scott Bishop on the mound. The Devils went three up and three down in the top of the first. Callaway powered in two first inning runs on a 288' home run blast by freshman catcher Ben McWorther that scored himself and Ben Williams. The Devils stepped up their offense in the second,' Center fielder Mason Brackett opened with a double, Jake Harris got on with an error, and Martin Wattenbarger hit the right field fence for a double. Scott Bishop had a single. When the smoke cleared the Blue Devils were leading by a score of 3-2. Cavalier starting pitcher Justin Lee started the Callaway second with a double but was fol- lowed by three groundouts. Lee tossed only one out in the third inning before C.J. Carter entered the game for Callaway. ALSO IN THE third inning, Callaway's shortstop Greg Shellnut walked and Ben Williams homered to deep cen- ter for two more runs. Tiny Tim Siggers was hit by the Mountville United Methodist Women met February 14 at the home of Calvin and Leslie Pike. Chairman Wanda Costley pre- sented the program on "Love." President Helen Thrash wel- comed members of the women's society and opened the meeting with the reading of a poem, "The Stain." UMW MEMBERS participat- ing in the program included Wanda Costley, Kay Humphries, Jean Mote, Nancy Newsome, Willette Phillips, Leslie Pike, Helen Thrash, Susan Whitlock and Alma Wood, all of Mountville; Joy Morgan of LaGrange; and Marty Wagner of Moreland. Minutes of the January meet- ing were approved and dues accepted. Vice President and Program Chairman Leslie Pike distributed copies of assignments for pro- grams and hostesses in 2000. UMW volunteers to work at the Interfaith Food Closet include: March 21 and 28 - Susan Whitlock and Jean Mote; March 23- Helen Thrash and Alma Wood; and March 30 - George and Clara Andrews. SECRETARY OF Program Resources Willette Phillips reviewed several study course books. UMW voted to purchase the following books: "Women of the New Testament," "Women of the Old Testament," and "Living in the End Times." Members of the women's soci- "Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds com- plete in the sight of my God." (Revelation 3:2 NIV) A church can look good on the outside, like Sardis and Laodicea, but be in desperate spiritual condition. These churches were deceiving themselves that they were suc- cessful but the Lord was calling them to recognize their self- deception and to evaluate them- selves in the light of God's truth. By recognizing the truth about our condition, by repenting, and by living in fellowship with the Lord, a church can be restored to faithfulness. Restoration means a new beginning or a see- end chance which our Lord is always willing to give. His grace is abundantly available to all who are willing to receive it. Our heav- enly Father is always ready to extend his grace to all.

Siggers was later thrown out at second attempting a steal. Manchester's Mason Brackett and Jake Harris teamed up a pair of hits for one more Blue Devil run in the fourth.

PROGRAM CHAIRMAN Wanda Costley presented the ori- gin of Valentine's Day. She dis- cussed God's gifts of grace, mercy, faith, healing and mira- cles; and how these gifts can be used to encourage and help oth- ers. She emphasized that phrases as "I love you," "no charge," "maybe you are right," etc.; and words of encouragement, praise, and welcome can change a per- son's life. She said that we should take time to let others know that we care about them.
