??  ?    Local children are preparing for heading back to the classrooms. While registration for the new school year has began so has the back to school shopping. Along with the new clothes, shoes, textbooks and grade level, comes all the necessary school supplies that are needed by each student.
    For some students in the northern Clark County area that may not be such an easy task. Therefore, volunteers at the NCOC have been preparing for the third annual Backpack Blast. They have been diligently filling backpacks with donated school items.
    “We collect them and pass them on to the schools,” stated Ruthie Jackson, Director of the NCOC. “Then the schools decide who will receive the donated backpacks.”
