KILGORE – Richard Cunningham is a devoted fan of “The Price Is Right.”

He and wife, Judy, received tickets to be in the game show audience Feb. 27 and 28 in California.

Alexis Hileman, his granddaughter, obtained the tickets, air fare and coupons from various businesses for the couple. Cunningham dreamed of being a contestant on the show. Hileman and her husband, Brysson, met her grandparents at the airport and provided transportation in California.

Was Cunningham chosen as a contestant? No one can say until the show airs May 9.

“I can tell you we had a wonderful trip,” said Cunningham when he stopped in at The FPS office. “I always wanted to ride a double decker bus and I got to do that when we went on a tour of the area. It was cold, though, and I had to move to the enclosed bottom section.”

The Cunninghams, who reside near Kilgore, flew home March 1.

CARROLLTON – Mark Hice thought he knew his purpose in life.

He’s a husband, the father of two grown children and a grandfather. He retired from his job at the Timken Company in April 2014 and was enjoying life on the farm. What more could there be?

Hice learned a few months ago, God has another plan for him: to help others.

The Arrow Rd., Carrollton, man was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in September 2016, underwent surgery to remove his esophagus in December, celebrated his 61st birthday in January and is now putting his life back together.

He says God laid out a plan for him and now he intends to do his part and share his experience with others.

“Early detection is the key to surviving this,” said Mark, sitting at the kitchen table of his home. “I had the warning signs, but chose to ignore them.”
