How Many NFL Superstars Does It Take to Change a Child?

Woman with towel on her headRumors flying fast and furious around Fool’s Gold today have caused a backlog of hair appointments at House of Bella and Chez Julia beauty salons this weekend. Why the sudden fashion emergency? Rumor has it, dozens of retired NFL football players will descend on Fool’s Gold next week to participate in team-building exercises at the End Zone for Kids.

Women under hair dryersThe End Zone for Kids is a camp outside of town that was opened earlier this summer by Raoul Moreno, a former quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys and one of the newest residents in town. The camp allows kids from the inner city to experience nature, some for the first time in their lives.

“I saw pictures of pine trees,” said one camper recently, “but I never smelled one before.”

Are the rumors true? Moreno couldn’t be reached for comment, but his camp manager, Dakota Hendrix, was spotted in line with her sisters outside of House of Bella. Chief Alice Barnes chatted with the triplets while she calmed the flaring tempers of the Gionni sisters as they fought about which customers should enter which salon.

“I heard Joe Montana’s coming,” said a fiftyish woman who asked that we not name her because she called in sick at work in order to get her hair done. “Is Joe Montana single?”

“Do you care?” asked her friend, and both women promptly burst out laughing.
