Starstruck? But of course

-A A +A
By Carolyn Risner

When I sent out the call for celebrity sightings, someone asked what I was looking for.

My response: I'm not sure, but we'll see what defines celebrity to people.

I was right.

Most of the names you submitted I was aware of. Some were a little more obscure and I had to do my own Internet research to educate myself on names like Brenda Fraizer and Anthony Green.

As co-worker Claude said, this business affords us opportunities to meet-and sometimes get to know-celebrities. Although I've always worked in small towns at weekly newspapers, I've gotten to meet or interview Pat Buchanan, Ben Jones (Cooter from Dukes of Hazzard), novelist Terry Kay (To Dance with the White Dog), baseball great Harmon Kilabrew, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Rick Bragg and actress Jane Fonda.

But there have been other non-reporter encounters and both had completely different ends.

In 1985 my family and I won a trip to see the Cincinnati Reds play. The trip included accommodation at the Hyatt Regency.

We were in the elevator when all these burly men got on-big, hulking type macho men.
