Kolor Kraze!

Water Valley junior high cheerleaders Sidney Spicer, Tamea Gaston and Zharia Harris were among “obstacles” at the K9 Kolor Kraze 5K run/walk Saturday in Water Valley. The event was a fundraiser for Second Chance Animal Alliance, and almost 250 pounds of colored powder was generously applied at the start and finish line, and almost every turn along the way.     – Photo by David Howell
