by Camryn Orosco



The first week of this school year Mr. Ryan Alcoser had all of his students participate in a competition to see who could build the highest tower out of spaghetti, tape, and string. At the time, it was an exciting, albeit frustrating, activity, but students had difficulty understanding its purpose or application to school. It was only in hindsight that students realized they had been “tricked” into learning.

I tore my Achilles tendon in early May, which means I’ve been off the bike for a few months now. When people find out, they invariably ask, “Oh, do you miss riding?” Yes, of course I do! But luckily, my bike has taught me a few lessons over the years, and I think I’m handling the situation pretty well.

This is the season when our patriotic blood seems to flow the strongest and we seem to pay more attention to memorials dedicated to fallen patriots. Since we celebrate the birth of our Nation in July, we often reminisce about wars and conflicts, how and where those patriots served. I’ve been thinking about ships.

As I write this, it is 101 degrees outside with a forecasted high of 109. Highs are predicted to remain between 102 and 108 for at least the next ten days. After a relatively mild spring, summer is certainly making its presence felt.

Seventeen year old Alyson Prescott is enjoying a run along the bluffs, but the fog has set in and she has an odd feeling she’s being watched. Not an unusual feeling for someone in the Witness Protection Program hiding from those who wish to do her harm, but this seems different. While on the phone with her BFF Mackenzie, she hears an argument and sees someone pushed off the cliff…”Call 911!” The police search the area and find nothing, but she can’t shake the reality of what she saw. It must have been a ghost…a ghost?

There was once a time, that small family farms surrounded the Reedley city limits. Does anyone remember where the Sellers, Fast or Nickel farms were? The home Johnny Rios lives in, in the triangle of North, D and 10th streets, was once a family farmhouse. Does anyone remember horses and cattle grazing in the pasture west of the Lincoln School playground next to Frankwood Avenue? Or the Harry Shuklian farm east of Lincoln School?

That day, the seniors arrived at the school at eight o’clock to rehearse the ceremony.

It is the best job they ever had.
It is a fresh start.
It is a chance to add value to other people’s lives and put smiles on their faces.
It is a place to build hope and to facilitate community.

Shoe shiners have been around for quite a while. Ever king or noble required his expensive, handmade shoes or boots to have the perfect shine. Throughout the 19th century, shoeshine boys could be seen on most city streets. However with the industrial revolution, shoes were being turned out by the hundreds. Shoe polish was invented by the 1900s and shoe shining became a brand new trade.
