    Hi Barbara,

    The What's Going Around section is here. I've sent your comment to the newsroom so someone can look into Harlem High's situation.

    Tim is at a weather workshop this week. He'll be back next Monday!

    You do a great job. Was wondering where is the section about "Whats going around town" Harlem High has several students with the flu/cold and it is spreading fast. Kati caught it then gave it to me.This has happened in several families. I can't even get Dr's appointment for her or I, offices are over loaded. You sneeze, cough, runny nose, body aches, fever. Feel like you have been run over with a mack truck. Maybe you all can find out just what it is going around. And what can be done about it, the good old fashion Tyenol and Chicken Soup, hasn't quite cut the mustard.Just keep feeling so yucky. By the way? Where is Tim? Poor Michael has been working his fingers to the bone. But when Merideth, Tim or Michael don't make you feel good in the morning, then you know you are really sick.
