Okay, so you've never heard of it. If you drove through it and blinked, you would probably have missed it. It's a small quaint little town with a few small businesses and very friendly people. The two biggest things in this least all those many years ago.....the elementary school and the high school. Imagine my suprise this evening while watching the local news to hear the name of my high school and small podunck town where it's located in the first 11 minutes. It's sad, that this is why my alma mater made the news. It is a great school and I look back at my years there as fun times! Sometimes, I actually miss those days where my only responsibility was getting that English paper done! :D
