On Nov. 1, 2010, the Catawba County Schools Board of Education approved changes to the school systemâ€™s policy for non-faculty coaches. That approval came after school system leaders began discussing changes to CCS Board of Education Policy 7.3500 in late June 2010.
I got out of bed Tuesday morning and could barely move. My neck was stiff and my legs didnâ€™t want to move without a little pinch in my nerves. I walked in somewhat of a hunch as I tried to make my way to the shower. Why was I in so much pain? Three words: Step moves class.
Monday night, I decided to try something different at The Perfect Workout. I got off work in time to make it to the gymâ€™s weekly step moves class, so I thought Iâ€™d give it a shot. It was something different for me. The only class Iâ€™ve tried was Zumba, which Iâ€™ve grown to enjoy.
One morning last week, I awoke to a very unsettling sound.
No, it wasnâ€™t the jarring sound of an alarm clock. It was the harsh peal of thunder.
After hearing the thunderstorm move across Hickory, my thoughts immediately went to one thing: snow.
Itâ€™s part of an old wivesâ€™ tale my grandmother always talked about. She said that any time it thunders during winter months, the area will have snow within 7-10 days.
The surprising thing is that most of the time, it happens.
