John is a local icon; a retired teacher, artist, community volunteer and, still, a bad boy motorcycle racer. I recently volunteered at a summer camp and was assigned to John's pottery class . The kids enjoyed it so much and I, too, got "bitten" by the pottery bug. Any proceeds will support a youth center in Rome, GA.
