    Last year the high school chorus travelled to Virginia to compete and received a Superior rating besides winning the grand prize trophy.  These students worked very hard to show their pride in the SCHS Chorus and appreciate the support of the community.

  •   My first thought for thanksgiving this year is that sometimes it is hard to give thanks.  That does not mean that we should not, or that we cannot give thanks, just that sometimes it is hard to look past our circumstances.

  • Perhaps you are in the same boat I am in, my 401k has become a 201k and it seems to be getting smaller every day. Let’s face it; these can be scary economic times.

  •  1997 – Not the 21st century, but close! At least everything felt familiar. For one, our computer was back. Not the computer I was accustomed to, but a late ‘90s model. I had to dial a phone number so I could connect to the Internet. Our TV included more channels and a remote control. Also, just by turning it on, we knew all the news all around the world in just a matter of minutes.
