News Advocate retains former White House correspondent Helen Thomas to cover tonight’s ‘Miz Relay’ event at MHS

Former White House Press Corps correspondent Helen Thomas has accepted an invitation from the Manistee News Advocate to cover tonight’s American Cancer Society’s “Miz Relay” event that will be staged at Manistee High School.
Ms. Thomas covered the shenanigans at the White House through and including the administrations of Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard M. Nixon, Gerald R. Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clnton, George W. Bush and most recently, Barack Obama.
Her story and insights of the pageant will appear in Tuesday’s News Advocate. Maybe. We think.
The pageant will be hosted by the Rockin’ Bankers of West Shore Bank. The event will begin between 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m., with the serving of sloppy joes and chips in the high school commons area, and the pageant will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the school’s auditorium. Contestants vying for the prestigious title of “Miz Relay of Manistee County” include Lee Sprague and Larry Romanelli of the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians; Brandon Ball and Jordan Solowiej of the Manistee Jaycees; Justin Freeman, one of the West Shore Bank’s Rockin’ Bankers; and Roger Hilliard of the Kaleva Crusaders.
The Manistee County American Cancer Society Relay for Life will run from noon on Friday, July 22 until noon on Saturday, July 23.
