JUDA - Abbie Bethke, 10, rural Juda, shrugged off questions about how juvenile diabetes affects her life, as she jumped off a pony Saturday. "I get more snacks in class," she said. Youths with Type I diabetes and their families attended the area's first "Cookout for a Cure," supporting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's efforts to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes.
