By Janet Caraway HARD EARNED YARDAGE - Callaway High's Ricky Parks breaks off a big gainer against the Lovett defense before a defender brings him down. Parks rushed for one touch- down in the win against Haralson County. THE WINS and loses in the first three games does- n't matter to the Cavaliers that much, because the team must now concentrate on Regiona 5-AA play when the team travels to Manchester Friday night to face the Blue Devils in the first region game of the season. However, the win against Haralson County does give the Cavaliers some momen- tum going into the game and the team make it look easy against the Rebels as James Newson rushed for two touchdowns and Ricky and Ricktez Parks both picked up a touchdown. The Cavaliers took advantage of a Haralson County mistake early in the game to set the tone for the entire night. The Rebels felt the inten- sity of the Cavalier defense on the opening kickoff as the hard hitting Cavs forced a tournover and Newson scored on a five yard run. Tavin Thompson added the point after and the Cavaliers took a 7-0 lead. On the Cavaliers first 'offensive possession, Ricky Parks and company made it look easy as the offense drove on the Rebel defense and capped the drived with a touchdown run by Ricky By BOB TRIBBLE Diverse Power's Washington Youth Tour dele- gates Amber Zell of Hogansville and Hannah Rose Duraski of LaGrange were two of the 104 high school students from 38 electric membership corporations (EMCs) who made the trip tO Washington, D.C. The all-expense paid week- long tour was made in early June and included a visit to the Little White House in Warm Springs. Tours of monuments, memorials and museums in Washington, D.C. made the trip a lifetime adventure for the students who joined 1,500 other delegates from 44 states. Miss Duraski is the daugh- ter of Ralph and Kaye Duraski of LaGrange and is a junior at Callaway High School. Miss Zell is the daughter of Nick and Rhonda Groves of Hogansville and attends Heard County High School. She plansto attend the University of Georgia and study veterinary medicine The students' earned their trip by writing an essay and interviewing with a group from Diverse Power. THE TOUR'S goal is to teach delegates how the EMC movement started, American History facts and how the government oper- ates. While in Washington the delegates met with Georgia's two Senators and several U.S. Representatives. Numerous national monuments were vis- ited including the World War II, Korean War and Vietnam Veterans memorials. They also visited Arlington National Cemetery. Duraski said that picking a favorite site was difficult. "I loved all of it. You hear about Washington, D.C. but actu- ally going there opens your mind. Seeing everything and knowing what it stands for versus just hearing about it are two totally different things. Everywhere we went we experienced places that showed us what our country sacrificed for us to have the free- doms we have today." Since 1964 EMCs across the United States have sent more than 50,000 students on the Washington Youth Tour providing opportu- nities for leadership development and inspir- ing students to become strong, motivated A VISIT TO CAPITOL HILL - Diverse Power Washington Youth Tour delegates Hannah Rose Duraski and Amber Zell are shown above with other delegates from Georgia's Third Congressional District with US Rep.

Joey McCartney of Diverse Power said, "Even though we can only send two youths to Washington the quality of the applicants we have each year lets me know our com- munity has some great future leaders." Joey is a former youth tour leader. CHIPPER AND Tonya Jones who served as chaperones said, "It is truly a life chang- ing trip for each student. Georgia EMC truly goes above and beyond to allow them a back door pass to so many attractions. It's the opportunity of a lifetime for these students because they learn so much about themselves and what leadership skills they can use at home to better their communities. In our opin- ion this is one of the best investments the EMCs of Georgia are making to preserve the future of our country."

Thompson again added the point after and Callaway had taken a 14-0 lead. The Cavaliers extended its lead to 20-0 early in the second quarter when Ricktez Parks scored on a 25-yard run. Thompson missed the point after, but the Cavs had taken a com- manding 20-0 lead. It looked as though the Cavs might add to its lead after driving to the Rebels' 22 yard line, but Thompson missed a field goal attempt. The Rebels cut into the Cavalier lead just before the 'end of the first half. With less than two minutes left to play in the half, Haralson was looking to score and went for a score on a fourth and short play. The Rebels were successful and the Callaway lead was cut to 20- .
