Best Applefest rumor I've heard so far?

50,000 people are expected at the Poverty Neck Hillbillies concert and the state poice are sending a special riot squad.

Best question I was asked last night as I represented my alma mater at the Venango County Colege Fair at the Cranberry Mall?
"There aren't any gays there, are there?"
(which still can't compare to the representative from a government agency who confided to me his worries at last year's College Fair,"'You see, we just can't get the coloreds to apply." Really? I am shocked. Shocked!)

The Derrick lists the winners from the Autumn Leaf Festival Art Show.
