State Farm Agent Bob Folger and Cumberland County High School both recognize getting a driverís 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 2N2ģ: 2 eyes on the road and 2 hands on the wheel.

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 Pedatorís home opener in Smashville, Wilmore posted a tweet of himself wearing his Predatorís 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. Letís hope he can catch the next Predatorís game, which this Saturday (Oct. 11) against the Dallas Stars. The action starts at 7 on Sports Radio, 1490 WCSV.
