The Yellow Pages scam


I was sorry to learn that the little ‘walking fingers’ logo is not copyrighted and neither is the term  ‘yellow pages’.  I received what looks like an invoice for the Real Yellow Pages from AT&T.  Instead it was from a bogus company that tries to impersonate them, but is actually another business.  If you read the fine print it does say it is instead a solicitation but using the color yellow, those little walking fingers, and the name yellow pages tricks many people. «Read the rest of this article»

Lana’s Dance Center students transports the audience to Wonderland

Christmas in Wonderland

Lana’s Dance Center hosted their version of the children’s classic “Alice in Wonderland,” to a packed house at the Music/Mass Communication Concert Hall at Austin Peay State University Saturday evening. The program featured almost 200 of Lana’s students ranging from age 3 to adulthood, and 35 support personnel whose hard work made it all come together.

The show consisted of 2 acts with 27 scenes. As with any recital the audience went from empathizing along with children driven to tears by stage fright, to enjoying performances by those whose gifts were clearly showcased. The Queen of Hearts, The Alices, and the Cheshire Cat were the highlights of the evening. However each and every child gave their all, and every parent should be justifiably proud.
