gunman who killed 32 students and

ago, was in fact ordered to seek mental
health treatment.

The Washington Post summed up the
findings in an article which ran today.

The Post reports a special judge
ordered (Sueng hee cho) Seung Hi Cho
into involuntary outpatient treatment
after concluding that he not only posed
a threat to himself but others.

Cho however never fulfilled the
judges orders and the paper points out,
mental health officials nor the court
checked up to make sure he received
treatment.

Hall will serve as the Cavaliers'
holder on Field Goals and Extra Points
this coming season.

The only other chances for Hall
to get into the endzone will be as a
defensive Back. The former Gretna Star
is competing for a starting spot at
Cornerback for the Wahoos in the coming
season.

In his eyes Hall sees himself as
completely a D-B now and no longer a
Quarterback. But it took some time and
a lot of effort for that midset to take

hold.

to help again---- which is what Henry


needs.

That's because the transplant
Henry received last month.. did not
take-

The Moore's waited 7 years..
since Henry was just a few months old..
to find a match-

His dad says Henry's so brave and
ready to try again---
