Friday Night Lights

Hope you take time to enjoy a great event that happens every Friday night in the fall…High School Football!  Not only do we have two outstanding teams locally in our district, but the teams in Colfax and Auburn (Placer) are outstanding as well.  Of course, I love the football action whether its a Miner touchdown or a great defensive play by the Bruins.  Just as enjoyable are the bands, cheerleaders and student body from the schools I get to cover.  It is so much fun…I love it!  It is homecoming for NU tonight, Placer too.  All the best to our kids!
