Today's word on journalism

"I've always been all over the lot in my writing. Except for poetry -- even though they say all the old-time sportswriters use plenty of it. Maybe it's just part of what we do."

Kids romp through Tremonton Kiwanis egg hunt

By Jessica Wakley

April 19, 2007 | TREMONTON -- Children ran through a sea of color, gathering eggs, when the fire engines sounded their horns, signaling the beginning of the hunt.

The Easter egg hunt was on at 10 a.m. April 7 at the Jeanie Stevens Park.

The egg hunt is put together by the Kuwanis Club and has been going for 15 years, said Robert Jex.

The rules for the hunt say the children can grab as many eggs as they can carry without a bag or basket. Next they run to a line where they turn the eggs in for candy, turning only three eggs in at a time.

"No kicking, shoving or pushing -- that is for the parents," said Jex

The event had six age groups ranging from 1- to 12-year-olds.

Each age group was blocked off by a rope, which did not stop the younger groups. After all the eggs were gone from their area they crossed the ropes and helped the 11- and 12-year-olds finish.

The hunt only lasted about 15 minutes, which was plenty of time to gather armfuls of candy and boxes of cereal donate by businesses.
