  • Top Of The Mountain

    I’ve heard of bean counters, but there are some expert jelly bean counters in town. Lawrence Card joined forces with his sons, 16-year-old Alexandyr, 6-year-old William, and 5-year-old Nathaniel, to come up with the winning number of jellybeans in the jar at Reed Intermediate School. The jellybean guessing contest was sponsored by one of the Odyssey of the Mind teams at the school recently, mom Gia Card tells me. The Cards guessed 2,592 beans, and there were actually only 18 more than that.
