There are Lots of Stories in a Small Town.

Cedarville, Missouri has a weekly News paper, which usually is at least one half made up of ads for Youngs Family & Home Center. Have YOU Heard? is a section dedicated to local gossip, church news, and what’s going on at our local schools. There are Lots of Stories in a Small Town.

Young’s uses a local girl to model clothes for one ad each week, she keeps the clothes and wears them to school. All the girls at Cedarville High, want what is IN FASHION. Shelby Gore is the trend setter ever since she was only twelve years old; she’s always looked older than she is. Her looks get her talked about, but there are many other reasons this girl is the talk of Cedarville.

On Sundays at the Community of Christ church, Shelby looks like an angel, then on Monday it’s a different story. Her every week Friday Night parties are where ALL the teenagers have wanted to go since Shelby turned ten. There is never any trouble and it gives the parents one thing less to worry about. Then last September Shelby turned 16, she ended the parties which made lots of her peers very mad. There is nothing else available, it’s not very private having to park next to the town square.

The last six and a half months have been ROUGH for a girl who is very out going. NOT one date, even for the Junior Senior Prom, which she has attended since in the eighth grade. I said she is a trend setter, students wanted to get invited to her parties.
