What’s in a lie? For some it’s an everyday occurrence and others avoid it like the plague.

For the members of the Burlington Liars Club a lie is a vehicle to provide a unique and hilarious contest.

The annual contest invites people from throughout the world to submit their best fibs.

And as the calendar turns to a new year the club has a winning fib.

A story on the world champion lie is among the news in this week’s edition of the Standard Press. The newspaper will be available at local retail outlets and subscribers will receive their copies with Friday’s mail.
