Kelly Smith Beaty, Fayetteville’s contestant on the new season of “The Apprentice,” is still on the show. She hasn’t been fired by Donald Trump. She hasn’t done much of anything. At least in what’s been revealed to us by the producers and editors of “The Apprentice.” I assume it’s her strategy to not make waves, and it’s a good one, but it makes it kind of hard to write about.

Well, I don’t scream about ice cream, but the contestants on the new season of “The Apprentice” do.

The team with the most profit would win. How did these former/ aspiring future captains of industry try to sell as much ice cream as possible? By yelling and haranguing passers-by. Read More»

I love my job. Since I am in charge of the Names and Faces/Weekend section of the paper (the fun stuff, the fluff) I tasked myself with following Fayetteville resident Kelly Smith Beaty’s journey on the new season of “The Apprentice.” It was my duty to lie down on the couch last night and watch television for two hours.
