Red attract the birds ini- flatly. Kathy Leo, nongame proj- ect leader for the wildlife Re- sources Section, said it is not necessary to use red food color- ing in the sugar water mixture if you use a red feeder. It may take the birds awhile to find a new feeder, but once they have dis- covered it, others may follow. 'Hummingbirds are very territo- rial, so you may want to put up several feeders,' said Leo. Feeders should be placed in a calm, shaded area and cleaned every four or five days. If insects invade the feeder, coat the wire suspending it with cooking oil or petroleum jelly. Bee guards will discourage bees and wasps. To help late migrants store energy for their trip south, feed- ers should be filled until the middle of October. Leo said, "Natural attractors of humming- birds are the trumpetvine, honeysuckle, azalea and other flowering plants. These also help supplement their diet.' " It is also a good idea to clean out your other bird feeders be- cause of a deadly bacteria called salmonella which is sometimes found in them. It is caused by decomposing food and Infected bird droppings around the feed- ers. The feeder should be com- pletely cleaned and disinfected with bleach. You don't usually have any problems in the winter due to the cold weather. Sum- mer bird feeding is not usually recommended because of the cleaning problems.

FOOTBALL SQUAD This dinner is only the first of several fund-raising events planned by Spartan Mothers. All money raised is used by the group to purchase or provide ex- tras requested by coaches of all sports. For their first meeting of the 1990-91 school year, the Spar- tan Mothers included their hus- bands and combined business with pleasure at a covered dish picnic hosted by Bruce and Paula McGinnis. Last year, money was raised through spaghetti dinners prior to football games, a fashion show which featured Spartan athletes as models, selling ad- vertising for the football pro;.. gram, and managing concession stands for baseball games. All of the money raised by the Spartan Mothers goes to benefit the ath- letic department at Greenbrier East. Many extras were made available to Spartan athletes last year because of the work of the Spartan Mothers. This year projects include an- other fashion show, sale of Spar- tan Mom and Dad shirts, and dinner prior to football and bas- ketball games. All mothers of Spartan Athletes are invited to be a part of this group which East Overcomes Covington: Resounding 43 -- 7 Victory By Jim Shepherd The Greenbrier East High School football Spartans traveled to Covington August 31 and avenged last year's 14-6 loss to the Cougars with a resounding 43-7 victory. Last year, Covington's Andy Carrol ripped the Spartan defenses with 228 yards rushing, but this year East totally dominated the game. Perhaps East has found a way to keep all their players eligible as this was their second victory before school even opened. It was Covington's first game. The Spartans overcame an astound- ing 175 yards in penalties in posting the win. It all started the first time Greenbrier East got the ball. With good field position at the Cougar 45 yard line, the Spar- tans scored in just six plays. The big play of the series was a 20- yard pass completion from Quarterback Sidney Coles to Aaron Ambler to the ten. Coles carried in for the score on sec- ond down from the four. The ex- tra point kick was wide and the score remained 6-0. to move the ball on the ground to the Cougar ten-yard line but a Coles' pass was intercepted by Larry Hilton at the five and the threat ended. Covington again could not sustain the drive mid Seen Phil- lips punted. This tinle it was Sam Johnson who turned in the big play as he took the punt over the shoulder at the 15, tunled, and headed for the goal line 85 yards away. Coles carried in for the conversion and East led 14-0 at the end of the first period. The next Spartan break came when the Cougars inuffed an Ambler punt and East recovered at the Covington 21. On first clown Coles passed to Johnson at the one yard line. Wilson car- ried for the score on the next play. Wilson's pass to Johnson was good for two points and a 22-0 lead. Covlngton's next try was snuffed out when Chuck Bald- win rushed Dressler and Le- onard Boone intercepted his pass at the 38. After one of East's 16 penalties set the ball at the 43, a screen pass from Courgars stopped tile run. East picked it up again in the third quarter when Wilson scored from 14 yards out. A pass fl'om Richard Benton to Chuck Baklwin was good lbr the con- version and a 37-0 lead. Covingion's only score came on tile next possession when Dressier passed 25 yards to Randy Perkins. Dressier kicked the extra point and the score was 37-7. S~teve Wilson provided the next excitement for Spartan fans as he returned a kick 90 yards -- but tile play was rio good be- cause of a penalty. At Ibis point it was thne for East to call in the reserves and what a job they did. Covington had moved the ball to tile Spartan 7-yard line early in the fourlh quarter and Dressier lined up for a field goal altempl. But it was a fake and Dressler's pass was intercepted in tile end zone by Scott Welkie who ran it out to the one-foot line. Froin there the reserves moved the ball 99 plus yards In meets on the l st uKday of But shades of last year, on ............... each month at i-eenbr ero Co r/gt6fis next Iay, from East library.
