Administrators hope to dispel the image of vo-techs teaching only non-college-bound students. The school, set up by four area school districts, is at only about 50 percent of its 1,200-student capacity.

Let's get a move on it this morning!" The voice, and the warm, witty asides like that one, belonged to longtime local morning-radio host Don Cannon.
