He was very quiet during breakfast. After breakfast, he followed his mother to her room, jumped up and put his arms around her neck and said, "Mother, your bill is wrong. The word NOTHING should be EVERYTHING. Mother, I owe you everything for lov- ing me and taking care of me! I'm so sorry I even thought of asking you for money for the few little things I've done for you." A mother's love is like God's love, a caring love, a love that should be written in our hearts.

Wyatt Earp...continued from page one few people, and was later killed offin the movie," Earp notes. The young Earp presents an imposing figure and his- torical photographs of Wyatt Earp reveal the strong fam- ily resemblance. Actor Sam Elliott once said of him, "Look him in the eye and you know he's not a joke." Earp stands 6'4" , weighs 200 pounds, sports a black Stetson, a west- ern belK light gray ostrich boots and, occasionally, a mustache quite similar to his ancestor. And although some Holly- wood agents have suggested he change his name, because it seems like a gimmick, Earp has stuck to his guns on that issue. He dropped his first name of Glen and even per- suaded his mother to call him Wyatt. "I'm so completely comfort- able in the western genre," Earp says. "I love movies with the grit of rural America because I believe that embod- ies the American spirit." (Since the movie came out, G. Wyatt did a short documentry about the movie Tombstone. He acted as an M.C. and sometimes this seg- ment is shown on a pay-for- view channel after the movie.) "W' • "', )/•. Happy 80th • Birthday AUNT PUDDY From Clem's Kids Aven...continued from page one eign cooperation and investments, to his small Kiev apartment for a chili supper, he opened the door to sharing his western tradi- I tions. One conversation led to another and after only a few months in the Ukraine, Aven was doing a country western radio show, with Lakamov's encouragement• On that show, he introduced the Ukraines to the music of some of his favorite western singers, especially Garth Brooks, Clint Black, Reba McEntire and Willie Nelson. ~| Aven compares Kiev and Moscow to "the wild west of the 1900s" ~| and says the Ukraine, which has now been independent from Rus- sia for four years, is very much like his native Oklahoma was a century ago. "It's a very hard life in the Ukraine," he says, "just as .~ it was a hard life here I00 years ago for our pioneers. ,,~ "Someone had to come and settle the American West--to make ,~ this the great country it is today. Originally many Europeans helped settle the West, especially in Oklahoma and Texas, where there are large German and Russian communities. I'm part of that heritage and I feel privileged to be at this point in history where I can share my own western heritage," Aven says. .t "For me, living in the Ukraine is a pioneering effort, There is no new frontier for a cowboy in America. I consider the Ukraine the cowboy's frontier today." ~c Aven cuts an interesting figure on the streets of Kiev. Dressed in' ~, a black felt Resistol, silver-tipped cowboy boots, a long black leather drover coat and typical western garb, Aven invites conversation, ~,; whether he's standing in the bread lines with other Ukraines or riding the over-crowded buses. ~Since I'm the only American who dresses in cowboy attire, they definitely recognize me now on the streets of Kiev," Aven says. "They definitely know I'm from out of town. "They were surprised to discover that Americans would still dress like the early day cowboys. They have seen cowboys in films, but [~ they had never seen them in real life. They think they don' exist ~ any more," he says. Aven confides that during his first few months in Kiev, Ukraini- ans could not understand why an American cowboy would want to share their meager, backward lifestyle and suffer their hardships. "While our mission with the Peace Corps is to serve as business advisors, we are also supposed to establish a better understanding of what an American is really like. Being from Oklahoma, I could think of nothing better than sharing my western heritage,~ he notes. He realized, however, how quickly he had become a stereotypical figure, on the day he didn't dress western and also didn't wear his cowboy hat. "The minister of communications told me, 'Don't ever let the Ukraines see you without your cowboy hat again. Wearing that means to them that you are still in touch with your traditions," Aven relates. "That made me realize how more fully how important the tradi- tions of the American West are to these people• To them, the cowboy is a symbol of world wide freedom. And freedom is just as important to a country that has been oppressed for three centu- ries as it is for American cowboys riding the range."
