Newport Has Talent 

Newport has talent and it was on display for everyone Saturday.The Newport Cultural Center hosted the talent show.Folks from surrounding areas could take part too.Those in attendance were treated to singing and dancing from all sorts of genres of music.Former district music educator, Bruce Brown found all the performers.” We think it’s important to not only showcase local talent but also to give people something they can do with their family on a weekend afternoon at low cost. It’s kind of that time of year when people are looking for things to do.”This is the first year the Newport Cultural Center has put the talent show on, but organizers say they hope to make it an annual tradition.
