Someone told Buckley, “You may be taller than councilman Jenkins, but he can outrun you.” Jenkins said he doubted that — noting that his victory in a relay race at the state high school track meet came more than 20 years ago.
PJC athletes frequently are seen at city council meetings as part of a class requirement. The five PJC basketball players were accompanied to the council meeting by assistant PJC coach Derek Taylor. (eParisExtra phogo by Charles Richards)
