Since school is back in session and sports are an important part of many of the students' curriculum, it is a good time for the community to show them some support. Make an effort to attend their ball games and rally for them. They are our kids and our future. Everyone can give moral support by cheering from the sidelines and anyone can volunteer to help "run the chains" or be a water boy during the games. There are numerous ways to show support...mainly by just showing up! Give the school a call; it can email you schedules of the upcoming games. Cougar Pride!

A thought to remember: Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles; it takes away today's peace.
