Well, folks, the Oscars have come and gone.  It was a great show this year, with 
some upsets to keep things interesting.  Our Oscar-picking contest wasn’t decided 
until the final Oscar was given to “The Departed,” which wasn’t unexpected, but 
it gave Aaron Ulland and Don Shenbarger 250 points each for picking that movie to 
get 4 awards.  Second place went to 6-month old Milena Hakala, who was one of only 
two players to pick the correct winner in the category of Best Song.  
Impressive picking, Millie!  Rounding out our top three was new Cyberninja Deb 
Chaulk, who was the most consistent of all the entrants, with 14 correct picks 
out of 20 possible.  Thanks to the 20 people who entered… it was an exciting night, 
with the lead shifting several times until Aaron came roaring up from the middle 
of the pack to win the title!  Some Raisinets and a fancy $5 DVD will be heading 
his way, while Millie and Deb will also be enjoying Raisinets (the new “Dark 
Chocolate” Raisinets—try some today!)
