J.'s Hero Awards at the "Be A Hero" Luncheon May 6 at Omaha. The awards are named in honor of D. J. Sokol, son of David and Peggy Sokol, who lost his battle with cancer at age 18. Each youth award winner will be given a scholarship of $1,500 toward their selected college or trade school. All proceeds from "Be A Hero" ben- efit The Salvation Army's program for needy children. The luncheon will feature keynote speaker, George Stephanopoulos,ABC News analyst. D. J.'s Heroes are recognized annu- ally by The Salvation Army. This year the awards will be given to five Ne- braska youths between the ages of 17- 19 years. They are Jacob Baden, He- bron; Darryl Brown, Jr., Omaha; Daniel Dorn, Franklin; Brady Johnson, Rushville; and Chio-Shain (Julie) Lin, Omaha. The youths were chosen be- cause they share D. J. Sokol's qualifies of dedication and faith, sellfless acts for others and commitment to their community. Baden is a student at Thayer Cen- tral High School, Hebron. "This quiet hero shines when giving his time to students who need special attention." He does this without being asked, and he has been doing it for years," said his school counselor, Sharon Larson.'The students he works with love him, and he will truly be missed when he gradu- ates and goes on to college." Baden has volunteered to help stu- dents in the school's special ed pro- gram. During what should be his time off, this high school senior also do- nates his time to help teach summer school. This involves working with children with learningdisabilities. Yet he also holds a job and works almost every day. Presently he has taken a younger boy under his wing, acting as a mentor and role model. "The difference he has made in just this one boy's life makes him a hero" Larson said. "But he has made a difference in many young people's lives. She said he has worked hard to overcome shyness. "I'm proud of him not only for what he has done for others, but also for his courage to bring change within himself," she said.

Greenhalgh is writing her second book of puppet scripts she plans to market to retailers. Marketing plan sells scripts for Greenhalgh During her first year as a stay-at- home morn, Kristin Greenhalgh, Guide Rock, was excited and busy with a new baby. But by the second year she had caught up with her household work' and had extra time so she started look- ing for a part-time job. "I thought I could find an interesting part-time sec- retarial position. I would be happy with $10 per hour." Greenhalgh discovered such posi- tions are scarce in the area so she began considering starting her own business. "My friends suggested I write ar- ticles for magazines, but one doesn't know if they will get published. I ques- tioned if it would be profitable," Greenhalgh said. Greenhalgh grew up in Omaha, the daughter of a longtime business man. She had also taught fifth and sixth grade at Sacred Heart in Lawrence and substitute taught three-quarters of a year in the business department at Su- perior High School. She currently coordinates Grace Place, a Wednesday evening program at the Grace Community Evangelical Free Church, Superior, for children in first through sixth grades. The pro- gram regularly includes a puppet show designed to illustrate the weeks Bible lesson. One week last fall none of the church' s prerecorded scripts illustrated the evening's lesson so Greenhaugh wrote a script. Drawing from her experiences and advice from friends and family, one business idea was to write puppet scripts for companies who make and sell pup- pets. Greenhalgh researched puppet companies on-line thinking she could write specifically for their business. "But when I contacted them they did not have intei:est in lidng a writer," Greenhaugh said. "They seemed to in- dicate hiring their own writer would be too expensive." "Then someone suggested I write a puppet script book I could wholesale," Greenhalgh said. "And that's what I have done. The first book went to- gether fast. I wrote it in February, had it printed and have sold enough to cover my cost and begin making a profit. I know it is a low risk business adventure, but it has been encourag- ing." Dad said, "The first year a new business in doing well if it breaks even." Greenhalgh's first book entitled "Walking With God" includes 16 short and easy puppet scripts depicting im- portant steps in the Christian walk like confessing sin, memorizing scripture, serving, loving one' s enemies and pray- ing using puppets and discussion ques- tions. It is written for two or three puppets. She has started on her second book, which is being more challenging. "I think about it as I clean house, read children's books, read my own things and listen to sermons. Sometimes as I work about the house, ideas just pop into my mind." Kristin is the wife of Lanny Greenhalgh, a Superior High School math instructor. The couple live north of Guide Rock on a farm where Lanny was raised.
