Former pro basketball player Corey Williams helps campers with proper ball handling during the basketball camp held last week.

Proper stretching and warm-up is essential when getting ready to play ball according the Carl Graham, former pro basketball player.

Over 40 youngsters were given the opportunity to sharpen their basketball skills during a Basketball Camp held last week in the RHS gym.

The Asarco sponsored camp was for 8-14 year olds and instruction was given by Corey William, who played professional basketball for 12 years in Belgium and Carl Graham who also played professional ball overseas for 13 seasons. Both men are from the Summer Pro Basketball program for adults and kids in Tucson.

During the two-day session, campers worked on such skills as dribbling, defense, rebounding, speed and sportsmanship.

Asarco also sponsored a similar program in Hayden the week before.

Vicki started her career in the journalism field while attending Ray High School in Kearny with an excellent teacher who took her by the hand and guided her. She worked on the school newspaper and as a senior was a co-editor. Her dream was to go on to college to study journalism and eventually to travel the world reporting the news. This dream was interrupted by life circumstances. She stayed in Kearny and went to work for the Copper Basin News in 1964 as a typesetter. Her editor was Ira Q. Toler and he also was a good teacher. After marrying and having children, her desires to again work in the newspaper field surfaced. She responded to an ad for a position in advertising for the Copper Basin News which included selling, lay-out and design. She was hired on the spot. The business has greatly changed with technology and the introduction of desktop publishing. She was fortunate enough to be a part of it. She has now worked for Copper Area News Publishers on and off for over 30 years, starting when John Seater was the publisher. She has held many positions over the years, but is most proud to be named a reporter. She loves to write and is so grateful for being given that chance.
