Cumberland County High School staff and students are committed to keeping teens safe on the road. They are asking everyone 14 and older to go to www.celebratemydrive.com once a day, every day, from Oct. 15 to Oct. 24. The more safe driving commitments our community makes, the better their chance to win a $100,000 grant and a private concert by The Band Perry. Learning to drive is a big step in life. State Farm Agent Bob Folger and Cumberland County High School both recognize getting a driver’s license is an important and joyous time. Celebrate My Drive celebrates this milestone with new drivers by encouraging them to make positive choices like driving 2N2®: 2 eyes on the road and 2 hands on the wheel.
Please go to www.celebratemydrive.com today to support the CCHS JETS and safe driving.
The Predators have at least one fan in outer space. That would be Mt. Juliet native and astronaut Butch Wilmore who is on board the International Space Station. On Thursday, prior to the Pedator’s home opener in Smashville, Wilmore posted a tweet of himself wearing his Predator’s shirt and a big smile on his face. His show of support proved lucky, the Preds beat the Senators 3 to 2. Wilmore is set to return to Earth in March. Let’s hope he can catch the next Predator’s game, which this Saturday (Oct. 11) against the Dallas Stars. The action starts at 7 on Sports Radio, 1490 WCSV.
