Middle schools in the county were visited by Merrill McCubbin, MerMan, recently through MerMan Productions. MerMan performed a revealing program about the causes and effects of bullying. "In reality, we've all been a victim, a bully, and a witness at some point in our lives," says MerMan. "The real test is how we choose to act once we become aware of our distinct roles."

Merman's presentation included a short skit depicting students at each school as a witness, a victim, and a bully. MerMan gave advice on how to deal with a bully. Know yourself, Tell someone, Go away from possible problems, and Yell and Run for help.

The student audience enjoyed a program of illusion, humor, and information. Visit Merman's website at
