As the holiday season quickly approaches, so does the season of scams.
On Monday, the Benton Schools Athletic Department warned of two unauthorized companies contacting area business to sell ads for promotional items.
â€śEnd Zone Athletics and 5 Star Posters are not authorized to sell ads in the Benton School District,â€ť Benton athletic director Randy McFarlin said.
The school dropped its contract with 5 Star Posters almost a year ago, before McFarlin came on.
Zoe Turner, a fifth-grader at Hurricane Creek Elementary School, likes the tenth day of Christmas in the seasonal song â€śThe Twelve Days of Christmas.â€ť
In fact, she likes it so much that she was able to convince the judges of an essay contest that itâ€™s really the best day of all.
Zoeâ€™s essay about that particular day was selected as the top essay among all of those submitted in the contest that was open to fifth-graders throughout Saline County. (The essay appears on page 10 of todayâ€™s Courier.)
