Amazing is all I can say about the reaction to the introduction of the fifth Centre County story a week ago.
This year we started both adult and kids' stories, and writers of all ages are responding in a big way.

The deadline is today and so far we have 10 chapters submitted by adults for the story set at the Old Gregg School farmers market.
And we've seen waves of kid entries flow in all day, with so many adventures for the Nittany Lion.
This is truly amazing, and we look forward to sharing these with you.
Judges will pick a winner among the adult entries and the winning chapter will run Sunday, with a call for chapter two.
As for the kids, we'll run a few of these later this month, to show you how the imaginations work of our youngest readers.
