Miller had a competition with two other birders in 1998 to spot the most species of birds in North America in one year.

SCHOOL HOSTS PRESENTATION: Champion High School will host a free presentation about drug use at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the high school auditorium with Dr. George Elder of Psychemedics Corp. The school district has approved a voluntary random drug testing program to help students avoid drugs, arm them against peer pressure, and help them make better life decisions. Schools have used hair testing as a deterrent and have reduced student drug use dramatically. Results will be sent only to the parents and not to the school.
