Pinewood Derby races this Saturday

More than 50 competitors are expected to vie for prizes this Saturday, April 8, at the annual Cub Scouts Pinewood Derby in Sunnyside.

The sponsor of this year’s event is C. Speck Motors. The races will be staged in the auto dealer’s show room, beginning at noon. Community residents are encouraged to view this year’s races.

The 2006 Pinewood Derby will feature a computerized, electronic track to measure race times. This year’s event will also include an open class for family members of local Cub Scouts.

Refreshments will be offered to all participants.

Singing teacher

to be featured

on TV Sunday

Sunnyside Harrison Middle School eighth grade teacher Rebecca Rodriguez will be featured on Sunday’s “Give Me the Mike” television show.

The TV show is set to air at 6:30 p.m. on KNDO and KNDU.

Set up much the same way as the popular and nationally syndicated “American Idol” television show, contestants vie to impress the judges and move on to the next round. Rodriguez will be performing No Doubt’s song, “Spider Webs,” on the Sunday, April 9, airing.

“What’s nice about this round of competition,” said Rodriguez, “is that if you don’t win, there will be voting by the television viewers in mid-May for a wild card spot in the finals.”
