With March here, the natural thought is to look toward better things from the coming of Spring.
But, as the Western High School Winter Guard can attest, good things happen in winter too.
The girls turned in a sterling performance to win their class competition recently. Congratulations to them.
Congratulations also to my oldest son Cortlandt for doing so well in his karate tournament. Even though the kids pour out a lot of effort during their performances,they - and the parents - must be commended for the hours-long wait they/we endure waiting their turn. It was worth it, though. The kid picked up a second place medal for chambara (jousting with long styrofoam sticks), and a first place trophy for kumite (sparring). A purple belt, he had to beat a brown belt with a rugged reptutation to get to the championship round.
