North Clay Agricultural Education Website - Easy to develop using 
This is what I have been working on to use as a home page.  It is a blog.  This looks like an easy way that students will be able to keep page updated.  I am currently reading up on how to add links and pictures.  This might be of interest to others to do since it is very simple to do.  Allen Ritter  

Website of Interest -  This looks like a site many teachers would be interested in especially those who are getting into the industrial tech area.  Allen Ritter
