CHARLESTON - Army Reserve Specialist Four Thomas H. Rolwing, son of Mr. and Mrs. F.D. Rolwing, received a St. Louis Post-Dispatch Outstanding Achievement Award.

PUXICO - Puxico farmer Wayne Cryts said Thursday he is not a candidate for the chairmanship of the American Agricultural Movement and that he believes the movement has the best opportunity now it's ever had to help the plight of farmers.

SIKESTON - In shock and disbelief, Addie Mae Jones proudly accepted the 1992 Woman of the Year award. "You all surprised the fire out of me," said a smiling Jones. "I am so shocked."
