Wide ........ $975.00 By Jonathan Wright Bill Baxter has been performing magic tricks longer than many of his audience members have been alive: t 8 years. He is only 23 years old. '1 began learning magic when I was 5," he said. "1 had always wanted to do it full-time, and now I am. I love it--I feel lucky to have this privilege to perform for so many people---and I'm making money at it, too !" Mr Baxter and his wife Angela were at Greenville Elementary/Jun- ior High School April 3 as part of an anti-drug awareness week spon- sored by the school. Their perform- ance at the small Monroe County school included a variety of magic tricks, several with a message con- cerning the dangers of illegal drug use. Mr Baxter encouraged students to resist the temptation from friends who try to get them to use harmful substances. The Baxters travel throughout the eastern United States with their magic acts, performing six months in schools and the rest of the year at fairs, festivals, conventions, resorts, colleges, and fund-raising efforts. Through West Virginia University they conduct anti-drug programs to educate students how to resist pres- sure and use their time wisely in other pursuits. "We've been in 30 of the state's 55 counties," Mr Baxter said. "We add six new ones every year. By this time next year we hope to be up to 36." 3 Ft. & 2 Inches ......... $595.00 Guaranteed Memorial Day Delivery Price Includes Engraving and Installation in Family Cemetary.
