Franklin High student heads to Junior Olympics

At her personal best of 18' 9.25' Jorden O'Neal of Franklin High School in Elk Grove placed 4th for the Sac-Joaquin Section Marks in the women's long jump in Track and Field this season. Her outstanding performance met the National Silver Standard and placed her on the ESPN HS, Top 100 US Elite Athletes list.

Jorden says that she's not done yet, and that she plans to set a new record at the AAU Junior Olympic Games in Houston, Texas, on August 1, 2012. The Olympic Games will run from July 25th through August 4, 2012, where Jorden will attempt to improve her personal best in the Long Jump and shave seconds off her PR of 12.72 seconds in the 100 meter dash.

O'Neal is currently seeking corporate sponsorship. For more information, please contact 916-267-3919.

And the Winners are...

And the Winners are...

 

News10 My Neighborhood ran a week-long sweepstakes contest last week. 

We asked our vusers to submit their definition of HOOPLA, and when they did, their names were automatically submitted into a random drawing.  Then, four lucky winners would receive four passes each to Golfland SunSplash.

This dictionary quiz sweepstakes contest was inspired as part of News10's Reading Connects campaign which is all about connecting with our community to help improve the literacy rate.

Well, we received over 90 responses, and some people were thoughtful enough to email us a sentence with the word HOOPA in it.  Here are some examples:

2012 Weekly Challenge #23: The Power of Encouragement

G. K. Chesterton, an English journalist, once wrote, “The really great person is the person who makes every person feel great.”

When two people interact, they are both changed. The change can be for the better, or not. Whether our influence is helpful or hurtful, positive or negative, depends on whether we give each other the gift of encouragement.
