Cooper Lake Center cancels ‘Idol’-style contest

From Staff Reports

Sept 19, 2007 - A singing competition for young people that was to have been held Saturday, Oct. 13, at Cooper Lake has been cancelled.

Singers in the "Stars Under the Stars" event would have competed in three age divisions: 9 to 12, 13 to 16 and 17 to 19.

Tom Stewart, president of the South Sulphur Springs Regional Development Association, the organization developing the cultural center in northern Hopkins County, said lagging sign-ups persuaded SSRDA's board of directors that the “American Idol”-like contest would be unwise to continue.
