What do pigs and projectors have in common?

Dillsboro Elementary School wants to equip its classrooms with LCD projectors that could be used with the Internet. Dillsboro Police Chief Ryan Brandt decided a kiss-the-pig contest would be just the ticket as a fundraiser.

“We should try to help the school as best we can,” he said, noting he came up with the idea to raise money from folks outside the school by placing donation jars in various businesses.
