— A decades-old tradition came back to life Saturday, with lots of hootin' and hollerin' as the 1st Annual World Wide Hollerin' Festival was held at Paradise Acres in Hope Mills.

Jim Grastie, from Fayetteville, won 1st place, Julie Leechford, from Raleigh, won 2nd place and Tommy Tatum, from Greys Creek, won 3rd place.

Jim Damon Herrin from Fayetteville won the junior division.
