    Miss America 2009 is from my town!

    Katie Stam - daughter of a fellow music teacher in our school system and my choral supervisor - won tonight.

    She is the real deal - a very sweet girl and we are very excited!
    I watched her in many musicals and she is very talented.
    Whenever I spoke to her she was just the nicest kid - great parents too!
    She will do a great job as Miss America and we are proud!

    Way to go Katie!

    What does a Miss America actually do? Do they get given responsibilities or are they just to be a role model for other young people?

    Man, if Franklin were not such a happenin' town, and if I didn't live 15 min walk from my job, I'd pull up stakes and head for Seymour in a flash.

    Congrats to Katie & Seymour (sounds like a wedding)

    I can just see the sign on Highway 11 now...

    What a wonderful thing, Charles! Our new Miss America is certainly a beautiful young lady, and it's great to hear that you know her and have a high opinion of her. Sounds like the whole country should be proud of her representing our spirit and ideals. You should be very proud!

    These days, being a role model for young people is a heady responsibility!

    Does she like traveling, reading, meeting people, world peace and horses?

    Katie will not be anything like the "world peace" kind of Miss America. A very intelligent and thoughtful girl who will be a spokesperson for several community causes. She give the term "beauty pageant" a good name.

    A very impressive young lady - not an airhead beauty.
    She will be on a very busy schedule all year long with speaking engagements - talking to schools, community groups, churches and a lot more.

    Good going, Charles - I am glad to see you responding so well about Katie in her newly won leadership role.

    I'm sure you didn't mean this literally "...Katie will not be anything like the 'world peace' kind of Miss America..." Because I'm sure she has intelligent interest in the cause for peace as well as the rest of the serious issues concerning current world conditions.

    I understand you were using a phrase with negative connotations ("a world peace kind of Miss America") as a way of responding to the folks here who apparently wanted to sneer about the Miss America program. I just wanted to gently point out that we shouldn't lose sight of how being advocates for world peace doesn't make people "airheads."

    I'm very impressed with Katie, and I want to thank you for pointing her out to us. I'm afraid the pageant had slipped by this year without me noticing!

    From the rest of the world - I wonder if we'd miss America
