Friday, one of Green's first stops in the Hill City was the Gatekeepers Men's Ministry Luncheon, where he took the stage with Reverend Jerry Falwell. Green encouraged the men to make a difference in their communities and to fulfill God's potential in their lives. And Green says he hopes to leave an important message on abstinence with area youth.

In Sports Extra we're just playing around.... One Franklin County man is hoping you'll put down your frisbees and boomerangs and pick up a "Loopstick."
It's a new toy Jerry Poindexter developed. He says it's fun to throw and it will give you a workout.

Jerry started working on the Millennium Loopstick back in the early '80's when he brought scrap wood home from work and started playing with it. Over the years, he's whittled a designed that's earned him a patent.
When thrown correctly the loopstick will whistle away from your hand and return, sort of like a boomerang.

The major toy companies have told Jerry he must sell a large number of Loopsticks before they'll pick up the design. So Jerry is now trying to market his product. Eventually he would like to get into the toy business full time.
The Loopsticks costs six dollars each or 12 dollars with a carrying case.

45-hundred Boston University students contorted their bodies as the words right foot blue, left hand green rang out in the largest game of Twister ever played.
The last organized Twister game that broke the World's Record was in 1987 when 4,160 University of Massachusetts students participated. (------------) Twister was first introduced to Americans 34 years ago.
