The History of Twin Bayous – And the Winner Is…

After all of the essay were turned in and Mike had read each one, everyone in town was curious as to who the winners were. Jackie was also curious, but she dared not try to influence her husband.

Finally, Mike made the announcements. Third place was awarded to Nicolas Viernes for his essay entitled “Interview with a Vampire”. Mike considered Nicolas approach very clever because he was able to actually interview his subject, Anton LeFey – all other founders being now dead and buried.

Second place went to Desiree Ringwald-Clemens for her essay on Maria (Vito) Goombah. This was a difficult subject because Maria was not at all famous like the other founders. However, Desiree had access to a cookbook written by Maria that had been handed down and the essay focused on Maria’s love of cooking.

Finally, first place was awarded to Albert Clemens for his essay on Vicki Gentille. Albert had the same challenge as Desiree in that Vicki was not a famous person. Albert’s approach was to go the city cemetery and spend a number nights before he finally had the opportunity to interview the ghost of Vicki Gentille.

One revelation from the interview was that Vicki was not at all happy about her husband marrying Jamie Stoney. Vicki also informed Albert that she did not know the whereabouts of Miss Stoney’s ghost. Vicki’s ghost would most certainly know if Jamie’s ghost was in the cemetery.

After it was announced who the winners were of the Founder’s Day Centennial Essay Contest, Colonel Andrea Ringwald was very upset that her daughter Jaycee did not win.

Andrea made a horrible scene outside the admin building at Fort Beauregard. The mother shrieked at her daughter: “You were assigned an ancestor who was the frickin’ mayor of Twin Bayous for over fifty years. She was a winner and you didn’t win! You are nothing but a loser and I hate losers!”

Jaycee Ringwald was even more upset than her mother was and she proceeded to carry some heavy baggage throughout her childhood…

Two days after the Founder’s Day celebration, Tabitha LeFey-Gentille was at home in her kitchen preparing breakfast when she suddenly died from a fatal heart attack.

She was found later that day by her son Brian when he returned home from work. A breaking news alert on radio and television made the sad announcement to the rest of the citizens of Twin Bayous.Screenshot-112
