JHS Football Camp runs smoothly

for Room 210 News

The JHS Eagles Football camp went very well. Everyone seemed to adapt to the new defense and were ready to do some work after Coach Buckmaster told us how "sluggish" we looked doing the drills, and not showing up on time.
The entire Eagles football team did awesome for a first camp to kick-off the season. Of course, the freshman have to learn a lot because it's completely different from middle school sports.
We are now in our summer weights sessions, until late July... then there is another camp.

Outdated photos added to Room 210 News

The photos that accompany this post are seven months old, but I wanted to share them with you. I just received a CD with photos on it from the Joplin signing of my novel, Small Town News," which took place in November at Hastings.
Several of you were kind enough to show up and it was very much appreciated. I had a great time (and not just because I sold a few books), so thanks again!
