Good morning, everyone, it's 7am. If you're wondering why I'm on at 7 in the morning on a school day, it's because I don't have to be at school until 10:30, because of sophomores and juniors testing. Anyway, it looks like I'll probably only blog this morning, as I have my CAPS Beat meeting this evening, but we'll see. I may get some more reporting in. I'll be back for sure with this blog in the afternoon tomorrow. So, with that, here's some crime before I go to school this morning.
