We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

Why participate in a summer reading program when you could embark on a summer reading quest?

Anytime through Sept. 1, readers can begin their quest. All participants will receive a free digital copy of the first book in the Chess Quest series, “Paladin: Pawn” by Michael D. Young. There are currently three books in the series available with two more on the way. Here’s a little about “Paladin: Pawn”:

When nerdy eighth-grader Rich Witz unwittingly becomes a paladin, a white knight in training, he is thrust into a world where flunking a test can change the course of history, and a mysterious bully is playing for keeps with his life.

Rich’s grandmother leaves him one thing before disappearing for good — a white chess pawn with his initials engraved on it. The pawn marks him as the next in an ancient line of white knights. He must prove himself in a life-or-death contest against his nemesis, a dark knight in training. With the ghost of an ancestor as his guide, he has seven days to complete four tasks of valor before his nemesis does or join his guide in the realm of the dead.

There are many ways to enter the contest, and the grand prize winner will receive a photo shoot using historical weapons and armor so that he or she can look like a knight. This is courtesy of another local author and weapons expert, C. David Belt.

The contest is open to anyone in the United States, but anyone who wants to claim the grand prize will need to be willing to travel to Springville at his or her own expense to claim it.

Visit http://chessquestseries.wordpress.com, which contains a full description of the contest rules, to enter.
