Michigan woman limits her treats to McCain supporters only
Published: Saturday, November 1, 2008 | 5:12 PM ET

GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich. - A suburban Detroit woman decided to scare up the vote among neighbourhood children by just offering treats to John McCain supporters.

Shirley Nagel of Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, handed out candy Friday only to those who shared her support for the Republican presidential candidate and his running mate, Sarah Palin.

Others were turned away empty-handed.

TV station WJBK says a sign outside Nagel's house warned: No handouts for Obama supporters, liars, tricksters or kids of supporters.

Nagel calls Democrat Barack Obama scary. When asked about children who were turned away empty-handed and crying, she said simply: Everybody has a choice.

Fax and phone messages left at numbers for Nagel were not returned.

'King of the Hill' to be dethroned, series to end

Fox TV is cancelling its long-running animated comedy King of the Hill, now in its 13th year.

The network said Friday the final episodes of the half-hour series will air during the 2009-2010 season.

The series chronicles the life of Hank Hill of Texas and his family and friends. The Hills are a blue-collar, suburban family consisting of Hank and his wife, Peggy, a substitute teacher, their overweight son, Bobby, and their niece, Luanne.

The main character is voiced by the series' co-creator and executive producer Mike Judge. Others in the cast include Brittany Murphy and Kathy Najimy.

Judge, with Greg Daniels, conceived the series after Judge's successful run of his earlier animated series, Beavis and Butt-head, on MTV.

King of the Hill became an instant hit in January 1997. It has won two Emmy Awards and was named one of the top TV shows of all time by Time magazine in 2007.

The show has a long list of famous guest voices, including Tom Petty, Johnny Depp, Heather Locklear, Willie Nelson, Brad Pitt and Meryl Streep.
