Graduate....Get New Car
'Focus' is the model of the car offered as the grand prize in a local high
school achievement contest...and the chance of winning that car is leading many students to sharpen their focus this year.

Ninety-nine students qualified for the contest by an October deadline. The winner, to be chosen by a select committee, could receive the car at next year's Riverfest.
