  • Crittenden resident is back in Jeopardy

    Crittenden resident and five-time Jeopardy champion Rani Peffer recently got a second shot to play her favorite game show.

    Peffer, who won $70,701 from six episodes in November 2013, was asked to return as part of the Jeopardy Tournament of Champions.

    The tournament features the top 15 winners from the Alex Trebek-hosted show since the previous Tournament of Champions.

    Peffer had high hopes she would get an invite, but the corporate finance manager at Procter and Gamble was on pins and needles for about nine months.

    When I served a church in Mississippi, I was the recipient of an amazing gift. A couple in my church knew that I was a fan (fanatical and crazy…according to my wife) of the Kentucky Wildcats.  They came to me after church one day and said, “Barry, we know how much you love Kentucky and though we can’t stand them, we want to give you two tickets to a basketball game between the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Kentucky Wildcats.
