Fight For Your Right…To Eat Good Food By: Rose

After last year’s much-publicized sit-in at the high school over the food in the cafeteria, it was expected that the people who be would take the matter seriously and do something about this terrible situation. But, alas, they have not done a thing. It’s about a month into the new school year and much to the chagrin of us students at Cyrus Lavinius Jeremiah Jones High School, we are still being subjected to the same, lousy, disgusting food as last year (as well as all the years before). We are growing human beings who need balanced meals, not soggy sandwiches with inedible lunchmeats and off colored condiments. We need nourishment, not who knows what kind of fish fish sticks fried five times over with greasy shoestring French fries on the side. We may all only be teenagers but we expect change. And if that change does not happen, then everyone should expect us to not to take it lying down. That’s a promise.

Accident Free Since 2011 By: Rose

BlueBell’s annual end of the summer party was held on Sunday, September 4th. Anyone who’s anyone was there. But that’s probably because everyone in town was present. It was a fun day full of barbecuing, three legged races, and a fireworks display. Luckily for all those involved, this year’s event was 100% accident-free. Phew.

Movie Night By: Rose

Last week, in an effort to attract more members of the community, the BlueBell Film Society hosted a screening of Rush Hour. Held at the library, over thirty people were in attendance. This was the Film Society’s biggest turnout in their eight-year tenure. Dash DeWitt, the president of the organization, told me exclusively that he was anti-showing Rush Hour but was outvoted 2-1. The BlueBell Film Society has been hosting movie nights every month for the past four years. However, their usual choices are typically more obscure than the Jackie Chan-Chris Tucker blockbuster. Mr. Dewitt promised that this was only a one time occurrence. Starting next month, the club will be back to showing their regular “high art film picks.” The October feature will be Ingmar Bergman’s Persona.

Blind Items By: AnnaBeth

Who’s been spotted around town behaving scandalously? These items must remain anonymous because I, of course, cannot stand gossip. But see if you can guess!

-What revered BlueBell citizen was seen stumbling out of the Rammer Jammer after 10 PM last weekend? Some say he was stumbling due to his notoriously poor vision, but I think it was the effects of the drink! Of course, it’s none of my business, but I feel that is no way for a man of a certain age to act!

-Kids grow up so fast! What child of BlueBell was seen at Pageturners buying books about the occult? I am not one to judge, but if I ad a daughter of my own, she would only be permitted to read the Bible and Nancy Drew, same as I did growing up.

-What blonde, beautiful BlueBell resident and daughter of a town doctor was seen performing community service with absolutely no agenda but only out of the goodness of her own lovely heart? Whoever she is, she is an asset to the community and an even better friend.

Do you have any blind items? I generally don’t tolerate gossip, but be sure to send any particularly interesting items to me here at the AnnaBeth blog! The more scandalous the better!

Society Announcements By: AnnaBeth

What a big week in BlueBell! For starters, an engagement of one of our very own Belles! Milly St. Clair finally got engaged to her beau, Phil Vickers. And can I say it was about time? We were starting to think Phil would never pop the question! An anonymous source has suggested on numerous occasions that Phil was still hung up on Ellie May Wiles. But apparently that is untrue, so congratulations to them both!

Jeri Lynn Hefferman and her husband Kevin welcomed their sixth baby boy Tuesday afternoon. Six boys, can you imagine? I certainly can’t. That oldest one, Bobby, is ten now and already such a troublemaker! I wouldn’t want five of him! But that’s just little old me. Anyway, sincerest congratulations to the whole, big, happy family.

In sadder news, beloved BlueBell citizen Gloria Tattersall has passed away at the age of 103. But every cloud has its silver lining, so be sure to check out her estate sale next Thursday – some of her items date back to the town’s founding many many years ago.

Are you part of a mother-daughter duo with a flair for fashion? Don’t forget to sign up for this year’s BlueBell Mother-Daughter Fashion Show! The best dressed family will win a gift certificate to Fancie’s.
