NICHOLS - Nichols Elementary principal Sheri Hamilton doesn't speak with a forked tongue, but her new friend has one.
Hamilton challenged Nichols students to read 3,000 minutes for Read Across America Week. If they did it, she promised to wear a snake. The student body responded to the challenge with a total of over 10, minutes.
Maggie, 4-year-old ball python, was about four feet in length, just the right size to fit around the principal's neck and shoulders.
