Hallie Kazemba spent several days last week with her grandmother, Betty Kazemba, in Hernando.
Diane and Jerry Beck, Jr., and children, Kimball and Jake, of Glen, were the Sunday afternoon guests of Joyce and Jerry Beck. While here, they enjoyed swimming and grilling at the home of Mike and Jacque Kazemba. Hallie, Drew and Will Kazemba had a good time visiting and playing with their cousins.

Just a couple of weeks ago, Q107.5 radio station was having a contest to find the New Kids on the Block fan who had the most memorabilia. Stephanie Bailey Cavender was a collector of their memorabilia from years back. She turned an entire room into a New Kids on the Block room, plastering the walls with posters and strategically placing items collected all over the floor. A radio DJ visited the room and interviewed Stephanie on-air. Later that same day, he called back to inform her she was a finalist. The next morning, it was announced on-air that she won the contest!
On the 25th, Stephanie, accompanied by Missy Cook, travelled to Hollywood, Calif. They stayed in a hotel right next to the Walk of Fame and the Kodak Theater. They spent several hours with the New Kids on the Block on Saturday, where they were given a private concert and previewed their new album for the contest winners. They all got to talk to them and give them their feedback on the new songs. What a once- in-a-lifetime opportunity! Both women thoroughly enjoyed their weekend trip.
