under that skate together. Under the direction of a moth-
er-daughter team, Quad Squad skates to music chosen by
them and maneuvers and tricks are choreographed in a rou-
tine that is packed with excitement and ?ows seamlessly in-
terpreting the music.

Quad Squad has been together for more than ten years.
Through the years, Quad Squad has remained a family affair
being coached by Brenda Massey and three of her daughters,
Chanda Florentine, Amanda Maddock and Melissa Kuhn.
This year, it was Brenda and Melissa who coached the team
to yet another gold medal at the national championships held
in Lincoln, Nebraska, along with a lot of input and assistance
from Brenda’s youngest daughter, Sarah Massey. This year,
two of Brenda’s granddaughters were on Quad Squad, Hailey
and Maddy Kuhn. Quad Squad is comprised 100% of skaters
that also skate freestyle for USA Roller Sports.

Country Skateland is the home of Country Skateland Skat-
ing Club, which boasts more than two dozen members, many
of whom have achieved the ultimate goal of placing in their
own individual events at the USA Roller Sports National
Championships throughout the years. Emily Weegmann has
won numerous titles including many ?rsts at Nationals, and
this year managed to skate her way to a third place in the
prestigious Junior World Class Ladies Singles. Sarah Massey

Cross Country teams LUMBER-GYPSUM

Columbia Schools are excited to have a Cross Country
team this year, not only for the CMS but ALSO the CHS!
This is a non-contact sport that is a lot of fun. You only need
good running shoes, a heart to run and want to have a good
time with your teammates. CMS (7th & 8th) students will run
2 miles, where the CHS kids run 3 miles. If you don’t play a
“fall’ sport, this is a great way to get in shape for your favorite
“winter” sport.

If interested, please contact Coach Bailey at (330) 993-
0049. He will also be available at the High School during
Freshman Orientation. The ?rst meet will be the Keystone Ice
Breaker on August 22. Last year the middle school kids had
such a great time and did very well. Columbia had the #1 boy
and #6 Girl in the Conference!

Copopa Kindergarten
Ice Cream Social

Scoops of excitement and sprinkles of fun await you in

JW Haun Construction is a family business,
managed by James Haun who has been in the
plumbing and remodeling industry for the past
35 years. After gaining some insight into the
installation and need for the walk-in-tubs, and
the bene?ts to the elderly and handicapped
communities, we felt the need to offer them at a
much more affordable price. In addition to the
walk-in-tubs, JW Construction also offers full

bathroom and kitchen remodels,
especially for ADA compliance.

Verifying that the trailer hitch is secure is not the only in-
spection drivers must conduct before hitting the open road.
The vehicle doing the towing should be serviced, and any
repairs should be made. Check ?uid levels, particularly the
transmission ?uid. In addition, make sure the water level in
the battery is acceptable and have the motor oil changed if
it is nearing its mileage limit. It’s also a good idea to replace
the air ?lter, examine the tires for adequate tread and test
the brakes.
When the trip begins, give your vehicle and the hitch a
