The fourth SubText08 draw was done by the delightful Andrea, and the winner was … Jess! Who also won last week, so double congratulations to you.
Newtown’s Teen Idol 2 went off really well on Friday night – the crowd was small to begin with but grew into quite a crowd fairly quickly. Prizes were dished out and pizza (the official food of SubText08) devoured. The most popular song of the night was So Sick by ‘occasional rapper’, Ne-Yo.
1. Ne-Yo’s real name is Shaffer Smith
2. Newtown was named by an earlier hotelier who hoped a new town would grow up around his hotel.
3. Here is an old postcard depicting the Newtown Library.
