Good grief KK, "Friday's Findings" had a longer run than "This week in the Mercury".

Updates from a newspaper somewhere in the Colorado Rockies:

Today there is an open invitation to play Pickleball.  There is no clarification as to what this is/means.  Sounds like something a creepy uncle would try to play with you. 

Some guy wrote an editorial about how he does not like sports/football.  Didn't seem to want to change anybody's mind on it either, just informing us.

A bunch of people in Hot Sulphur Springs are writing editorials about their river water being diverted from a Dam.  They sign their letters with "Dave's guide shop"  or "Bill's Bait" which makes me think they may just be looking our for #1.

Tennis for old/not athletic people, don't waste your time unless you fit into one of those categories

Arts & Leisure with a front page ode to the creativity and success of 502 Media Group.

502's Blade Mages

Quote
Mages believes The Mask videos have become "inadvertently the firm's most successful marketing campaign."  With only a handful of employees to handle the calls, 502 is having to be very selective about business opportunities in order to deal with the sheer volume.

Quote
"I'm going to turn the camera on and you just talk, Mages said.  "He went on a 20 minute rant, and it was all pure gold."
He started editing the video that day but found the task difficult because the Mask had so many great lines.  Picking and choosing what parts to use became a battle.

Quote
Mages was mum on the details but said the firm is in the process of talking with CBS about some video work.  If that weren't impressive enough, he also has the privilege of knowing The Mask's secret identity.  "It's funny because obviously I know his name," 

Sports front page-

Snyderisms

Quote from: LHC Bill Snyder
I think they're responding reasonably well.  I know that there was some enthusiasm -- some excitement about the ballgame, and they deserved that.  But we'll find out.  We had meetings and they were attentive.  We'll see when we get on the practice field.  But I think they'll go back to work.  They know what they've accomplished, and yet they know all that lies ahead.  This early in the season, there's still so much more ahead of them."

Quote from:  LHC Bill Snyder
"They accomplished something that was recognized nationally, that's a positive thing and I certainly wouldn't attempt to take that away from them.  I think the important thing -- the obvious thing -- is let's get on with the task at hand and take it a day at a time and let someone else worry about who's where in the rankings and the significance of the rankings.  I think we have enough maturity on this football team to be able to handle that."

I was listening to this while at the gym earlier and had to go take a break during CC's takeover.  :lol:

He certainly has a thing for exploiting Fake Sugar Dick (WARNING, NOT THE REAL SUGAR DICK!) fanbases.  Very well done.
