During this week’s edition of a long-standing tradition, students scrambled between extended passing periods to scope out their treat of choice in what could be categorized as a hallway mini market.

As has become their tradition, Ron got the trees out of storage and shaped up for Kathy to come behind and carefully place each ornament and filler.
WORTHINGTON -- Every year, I vow to begin checking off my ‘gift giving’ shopping list a little earlier than the last. Even with the best intentions, every year unfortunately turns out much like the last: a mad dash anywhere between Dec. 20 - Dec. 22 for those last-minute gifts.
