Reporter's Notebook: Bound for Washington

At least a dozen people will serve as Amarillo's representatives during the inauguration.

At least four students are attending through conferences organized by the Congressional Leadership Council. Max Guerra, 11, is a fifth-grader at Bushland Middle School. He is the son of Debbie Shaw. Ciera Nunez, 11, is in sixth grade at Greenways Intermediate School. Sam Haddad James Faulkner, 16, is a sophomore at Bushland High School.

Others who plan to see President-elect Barack Obama take the oath of office: Alphonso Vaughn, a Potter County commissioner, and wife Linda Vaughn, a principal at Eastridge Elementary School; Justice of the Peace Thomas Jones will see the ceremony with his two daughters; Paul Coleman, wife Carol and son Frederick, 11, of Canyon; and Russell Lowery-Hart and his wife Tara. Paul Coleman is a librarian at West Texas A&M University, where Carol is also a part-time instructor of biostatistics. Russell Lowery-Hart is the associate provost for the university.
