All students at WHS, the three are facing one count each of making a bomb threat in a public building and conspiracy, both felonies. More arrests could come before the end of the day, she said.

Ancients and Horribles Parade faces extinction

May 2, 2013

The Ancients and Horribles Parade Committee, which has seen many of its members resign or lose interest over the years, no longer has enough voting members to hold a legal meeting, which means there’s a real possibility there will be no parade this year.
