    Local 8 yr old kid going to the SuperCross exhibition!

    Well, ex-local. Ortanna is right near Gettysburg - in the sticks if you will.
    Good to hear that not all kids are grafted to a video game console or their smartphones

    California Dreamin' - Yaakov, 8, headed to SuperCross exhibition in Anaheim - Gettysburgtimes.com: Community

    It's also rather heartening to see a news outlet give the kid a full article and not just a photo and 2 paragraph blurb.

    Looks like a pro to me! Neat Stuff.

    What a great article about a great kid!
    Being a road racer with MX experience will be a huge advantage for her.
    I don't know how her old man does it, but I'm glad he does.
