Organized with help from the church’s women’s ministry, the event was to the public and provided participants with a booklet of fresh bread recipes as well as important information on how to process and store fresh flour (freezing was reccomended).

"I feel that my team looks way better this year," said Winlock Senior Savannah Fitzgerald.

Chances are that if a vehicle has been traded in, leased, repossessed or totaled, it will find itself among the nearly 9 million vehicles that are purchased each year in an auto auction — either one that caters to dealers or one that's open to the public. And while there are bargains to be had, there's plenty of potential for disaster, too. Most folks should never set foot in this arena. But if you plan on going anyhow, here are some guidelines for success.
Know the Sellers: Before you even step into an auction, call its business office and find out who has consigned cars for the event you want to attend. There are three levels of sellers at most public auto auctions. The first two can be good for buyers. They should avoid the third at all costs.
