Goshen Kid on "Ellen Degeneres" Thursday

See the boy in the middle, with the maroon striped shirt? That's Travis Banks, 9, of Goshen on the "Ellen Degeneres Show" airing 10 a.m. Thursday on Ch. 9. Banks, a third-grader at Spaulding Elementary in Goshen, shows Degeneres the "focus glasses" he invented for the school's Invention Convention in February.

"Ellen" publicist Melissa Little says that Degeneres, during the taping Tuesday night in Burbank, Calif., tried on the eyeglassed with blinders and ear plugs.

Not only did Travis and three other kids get to be on national TV, but Ellen also gave each an iMac for coming on the show, Little says.

Says Darrell Edwards, Spaulding prinicipal: They're to help kids who have problems paying attention in class. It was a cute little invention."

As Gary Burbank would say, "Cute kid!"
