For the third year, the Lion's Reading Contest at Lyman Gilmore Middle School in Grass Valley kicked off with a "Celebration for Reading" ice cream party co-sponsored by SPD Markets and Gold Country Lions Club. Lions Ken Eslick and Alan Archer handed out ice cream to more than 500 students while encouraging them to read and enter the contest. The contest was coordinated during the month of February by school librarian Roxanne Jones, who helped students select books of the appropriate reading levels. Upon completion, students then took computer-based quizzes, which they were required to pass at 80 percent or better.

For each book read and accompanying quiz passed, students got their name entered into a drawing for an Amazon Fire seven-inch tablet. At a school assembly in March, Principal Chris Roberts called forward the winners from each of the eight grades to be presented with tablets by members of Gold Country Lions Club. During the contest, students read 780 books with a nearly 90 percent pass rate of the quizzes. All students, whether they were struggling or advanced readers, could enter the contest by reading a book at their reading level and potentially win one of the prizes.

       If you're looking for Trent Duffey at lunch time, don't bother with the teachers lounge. His office is probably a wasted trip as well. You won't find him taking a break either. In fact, if he's even eating, the fourth-year Lyman Gilmore Middle School assistant principal is probably with the students, counseling and working with them at the lunch table."He's got a clipboard in his hands he walks around with all day long," Principal Chris Roberts said.
