NJ girls take on the challenges, and inequality, in chess
HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Anshruta Chidananda's interest in chess started when she attended elementary school.
She had to wait while her older brother finished his chess club meetings at the William Davies Middle School.
"It was very new to me. When I started playing, I thought it was really interesting, all the different abilities of the pieces," said Chidananda, now 16 and a junior at Oakcrest High School here.
The catfish kissing contest — where locals raise money for the honor to lock lips with a Coosa River catfish — winds up Saturday with a big fish fry at the First United Methodist Church in downtown Rome.
