  • Jacobs interns in Washington, D.C.

    Each semester at college, most students spend their time attending early morning classes, planning fraternity and sorority functions or worrying about exams, but Haleigh Jacobs had a different experience.

    Jacobs spent her spring semester with Congressman Geoff Davis as an intern in Washington D.C.

    Jacobs, 21, a Williamstown High School graduate, worked with Davis in Washington from January to May of 2010.

  • Take advantage of good weather while it lasts

    Hot weather and I usually do not mix.

    As a teenager, my parents took us on a family vacation to Florida to visit some relatives.

    It was blistering hot all day at the beach. Not being an ocean person, the sun simply glared on me the entire afternoon.

    When it was time for lunch, I started feeling ill at Denny’s.

    The group was sitting at a half-circle booth table with lucky me in the middle, which meant either half of the people had to get up to let me out or I had to crawl underneath the table.
