“Time is the substance I am made of. Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger which destroys me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire which consumes me, but I am the fire.”

– Jorge Luis Borges

WE gotta hand it to the voters in Dodson Auditorium’s Horror Movie Festival poll. The final film selections make for a nice spread, something the kids can enjoy (“Hocus Pocus”) plus movies that make you jump (“Scream”), clamp your eyes shut (“Nightmare on Elm Street”), laugh (“Beetlejuice”) and think (“Get Out”). And, of course, there’s “Psycho.”

TURN to page 6B for the schedule of the films, which get rolling Friday night at Kilgore College. Kudos, too, to the organizers for inviting the public to bring a donation to the KC Student Food Pantry to cover a single-ticket admission.

BY the time you read this, we’ll be in the midst of our pre-chili cook-off fast. Football players have their exercises, boxers have their routines… participants and fans of the East Texas Oilmen’s Chili Cook-off have our hallowed traditions as well.

WE’LL see you downtown Thursday morning. Get your spoons ready and don’t block the path to the chili pot.

QUESTION: What do our readers think of new pull-out sections? Last Wednesday, Oct. 9, we ran Kilgore Chamber of Commerce’s monthly Chamber Connection as a pull-out inside Game Time Weekly. You’ll get your 2019 copy of Women in Business in the same format. Thoughts? We’d love to hear them.
