More Astronomical Excitement: and Venus Align Next Week By ANDY KOBER Have heart area sky watchers, though no meteor showers are on the horizon - figuratively speaking - a celestial event is taking place next week. Tuesday, Feb. 16 will bring the conjunction of the plan- ets Jupiter and Venus. From the Harris County viewing area, their respec- tive orbits will bring the two bright planets within a degree of each other. The viewing angle will require that you look very close to the Sun. The conjunction of Jupiter and Venus will be best viewed as the Sun is setting. Look slightly above and to the Motorcycle Gathering left of the Sun. Remember, never look directly at the Sun with unprotected eyes as it can quickly and permanently damage your eyes. Though meteors can be seen almost anytime and without warning, the next sig- nificant meteor shower will But Without the Lingerie Models By JOHN KUYKENDALL The sixth annual Celebration of Motorcycles will return to Warm Springs on April 24- 25, but this year's event will be a little differ- e4at.., there will not be a swim suit or lingerie show. Dan Forrest, owner of Xtreme Rider, told the Warm Springs city council during its Monday night meeting that "mistakes made last year at the event will not happen this year." "I want you to make sure that the band does not start until I p.m. on Sunday after church is out," Mayor Sheila Lee told Forrest. "I also want to make sure there will not be any swim suit or lingerie models at the event." "We learned from our mistakes last year," Forrest said. "There will not be any lingerie models, the entire event will be held on our prop- erty, we will have people there directing riders to the proper parking areas, and I will post signs that say 'no alcoholic beverages allowed.'" Council member Gerri Thompson told Forrest she felt the signs should also point out that the city will "strict- ly enforce its open container ordinance' during the event. The event will include two bands, vendors, free refresh- ments and a leather fashion show by the Xtreme Girls. However, Forrest said that only the leather items sold at Xtreme Riders would be included in the fashion show. The event will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 24 and conclude at 6 p.m. It will begin at 1 p.m. on Sunday and is expected to end at 6 p.m. The event will take place just one week after the city's Spring Fling festival.

These 4-H'ers enjoyed putting the backpacks togeth- er and want to do the program for military kids in Harris County. Susannah recalls about the event, "I loved going to Rock Eagle because I met new people from other coun- ties and we had a great time .learning new things." "I loved going there (Rock Eagle) and meeting new peo- ple," said Victoria. "Meeting new people builds character and I hope to see them again at 4-H things."
