CHICAGOLAND Another day, another proposed fee increase By Jill Zuckman and John McCormick TRIBUNE CORRESPONDENTS HEMPSTEAD, N.Y.—A newly aggressive Sen. John McCain clashed repeatedly with Sen. Barack Obama on Wednesday over rais- ing taxes in a tough economy, the nasty tenor of each campaign and a former 1960s radical activist turned Chicago professor. It was the last debate before the final 20- day slog until Election Day. And it was the last time the two candidates were likely to face off before one becomes the president- elect and the other returns to the Senate. For both candidates, the third of their three debates could not have been more im- portant—or tense. McCain needed to knock Obama off-balance and divert the direction of the campaign, which has been trending toward Obama according to public opinion polls. Obama needed to stick to his message of change and hope. Obama mostly remained calm in the face of McCain’s onslaught, sometimes even laughing at him. But the Democratic nomi- nee was forced to spend time defending and explaining his plans, his policies, his sup- porters and even himself.

Yet, as noble as that sounds, the reality for us as students is quite different. Jim Halperty, who works at law firm DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary, who represents all legal issues for the Internet Commerce Coalition said, “This bill is well-intentioned, but it is highly overbroad and would create big obstacles to accessing sites that pose no risk to children,” a claim backed up by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI). “Unfortunately, this bill will not delete online predators. Rather, it will delete legitimate Web content from schools and libraries,” said Stupak. Our elected officials have also tried to shield us from dangerous websites. Governor Ed Rendell signed the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) four years ago. It mandated that schools with federal funding comply to an Internet filter. And although our district has one of the more liberal filtering systems in the state, one that still gives us access to YouTube, the newest change has created a noticeable difference in what we can do with the Internet. Our current technology-based educational efforts have run into an impenetrable firewall that have kept us from Animoto and Glogster, from websites that we need for research papers and from Web 2.0 sites that encourage collaboration. And we can no longer search for hundreds of topics such as cities or countries because they are classified as “Travel & Leisure.” These changes have added even more challenges as our school tries to combine education and technology, a major goal of today’s world. Instead of spending time researching Mark Twain or finding out today’s atmospheric pressure, we are waiting the usual 10 minutes for our computers to boot, then another 5 for the Internet to connect, then another 5-10 for the webpage to load if it is not blocked. Again, we see the problem because we are the ones affected. We certainly don’t know about server issues, about firewall setups or about baud speeds, and we respect the efforts of IT specialists, school officials and our elected legislative representatives. But we are ones in the seats, so to speak. We are the ones who are in the process of becoming adults, those life-long learners who have integrated technology into every aspect of our lives. We heed the warnings; we have listened to our parents. We are those 21st Century Learners everyone is talking about. However, we realize that as students, no one is ready to allow us to solve these problems. It’s rare that we have any input much less the final decision in situations involving our education, which greatly affects our happiness, sociability and overall lives. But we try. In this column, we have fought for a different dress code, for less busywork, for an easier and more flexible class scheduling system, for some school-wide recognition of those who win great honors and for higher-quality classroom technology, all well-intentioned and all coming from the viewpoint of students between the ages of 14 and 18. So, maybe those are not our decision-making years, but we will continue to challenge what we know must be changed. If we don’t fight, we can’t prevail. Four years ago, the U.S. House passed the Deleting Online Predators Act (DOPA) by a 410 to 15 vote.C a personal view by editor Courtney Sabo On Feb. 9, I attended a girls’ basketball game. Sure, maybe they don’t attract too many students, but that night was different. Senior Jocelyn Schultz needed only 7 points to reach 1,000. For once, a small student section filled a portion of the bleachers, and friend and fellow classmate Brittany Keyser brought along Jocelyn Schultz faces to hold up during the game. I was there with my camera as usual, ready to shoot that breathtaking shot; however, the first quarter was rather mundane, and we were losing 4-2. Within a few minutes of the next quarter, Jocelyn scored six points, leaving just one left. She drove to the basket and was fouled by a Montgomery player. She stood at the foul line and shot. Swoosh. The game stopped, and music played. Fans cheered as Jocelyn received flowers, balloons and hugs from her teammates, coaches and parents. A thousand points is a big deal. I am glad we were there to share it with her.

  21. 21. Life on the Farm 8 R&W November 2009 1000acres BALANCING THE EQUATION 120 cows 6.5 gallons of milk per day per cow 12 total hours spent on farm daily TEACHERS DON’T JUST TEACH by morgan lee, features editor Science teacher Todd Davis volunteers at the Bloomsburg Volunteer Fire Department whenever his pager sounds. His main duty is driving the engine, getting the apparatus and firefighters safely to the fire and supplying the equipment. “The best part is getting back after we’ve done a good job and just joking with everybody,” says Davis. Industrial Technology instructor Kirk Marshall extends his talents and skills into a part-time career with home repairing and remodeling. Marshall explains that the hardest part of juggling both careers is time management factor but he enjoys success in both. “I love seeing a job come together smoothly,” says Marshall. Math teacher Debra Shuman feeds Star, a week-old calf, on her farm. Corn is the main crop for Shuman Family Farms this year. They harvest it in October and November. BY THE NUMBERScollected by morgan lee, features editor SHUMAN FAMILY FARMS TODD DAVIS KIRK MARSHALL 9 Photos by Morgan Lee and Courtney Sabo, cover illustration by Briana Yablonski by ilea franklin Teaching is a full time job, but math teacher Debra Shuman has another occupation that focuses on family, personal interests and the desire to keep busy. “You’ve got to love what you’re doing, or it becomes a chore. Farming is a great life.” Debra Shuman BALANCING THE EQUATION Although Shuman Family Farms appears undisturbed, it bustles with activity every weeknight when the members of the Shuman family complete their duties. Biology and chemistry teacher James Perry is also an assistant coach for Hazleton High School’s swim team. He additionally coaches Sandlot-Sluggers, a summer baseball league. Perry plans to soon substitute his swimming nights for bimonthly city council meetings. “Although they are time-consuming, they are all well worth it,” he says. In addition to teaching Ecology, Doug Vanbrunt spends his summers at the Old Forge Brewing Company in Danville working as either a manager or a chef about 30 hours per week. “When I’m managing, I just run the restaurant, but my favorite part is interacting with the public,” says Vanbrunt. The Shuman family uses the no-till grain drill to plant grains without eroding the soil. S human works at least two hours every weeknight with her husband Rich and two children on the family farm, time that fulfills a lifelong involvement in agriculture and a work ethic that she shares with her students in class and outside of school. With she and her husband working the late shift, Shuman has turned farm work into a shared effort. “We all go out to the barn at night,” says Shuman. “It’s a family event.” She takes along her nine-year-old son Steven and her five-year-old daughter Courtney, giving them responsibilities similar to her own when she was younger. “My job was to feed and take care of the calves,” says Shuman. “Only when I got older did I get into milking.” With this experience, Shuman learned how to manage her time when she was in high school, using study halls to finish homework and tending to the calves before late-night basketball games. To her advantage, these skills have stayed with her throughout her life and serve her well. “I wake up about 5:30 and arrive at school around 7:00,” says Shuman. After school, her time is spent helping students in AIC, but because of her farm duties, she must be home by 4:00. After assisting her students and completing work on the farm, Shuman’s day ends with cooking dinner, helping Courtney and Steven with their homework and preparing for the next day. “I often fall asleep with my daughter at 8:00,” says Shuman. Although family and teaching responsibilities are her first priorities, Shuman enjoys working on the farm and has had a lifetime to get used to it. “I’ve lived on a farm all my life,” says Shuman. Her earlier farm experience on a dairy farm makes her an expert at what she does now. “I milk about two hours a night,” says Shuman, referring to the twice-a-day responsibility she has with 30 of her cows. Avid Avocation With Shuman’s lifestyle comes difficult professional and personal decisions. “My responsibility needs to be there,” says Shuman of the farm and family, which makes extra- curricular school participation improbable but in the past, not impossible. “I was with SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), Student Council, and I was a class adviser,” says Shuman. “This year, I was a powder puff coach.” Her 15 to 17-hour days are tiring but rewarding. “You’ve got to love what you’re doing, or it becomes a chore,” says Shuman. “Farming is a great life.” Student helper Although Shuman usually faces these long hours with her family, every Sunday is highlighted by a helping hand. Senior Jack Breisch is there when crops need to be harvested or other large jobs come up. “I wake up at four and help with feeding and milking the calves,” says Breisch. Shuman says that Breisch is a diligent worker who lends a hand around the farm if she or her husband happen to be sick or take a rare vacation. Breisch even helps out during the summer by unloading hay and performing other labor intensive jobs. With farm prices low and expenses continuing to rise, Shuman knows the reality of her decisions. “You have to have some other type of income, or it’s difficult to make ends meet.” Regardless of the hard work and the long hours, Shuman feels the farm is well worth the effort.[] JAMES PERRY DOUG VANBRUNT

MCGARRY’S PREDICTIONS Each year, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which, like any villainous all-powerful organization, is simply known as The Academy, deigns to present we mortals with a list of nominations for awards. Predictions are made and yet we are always surprised at the announcement, sometimes angered, always perplexed. Knowing I will be incorrect in my predictions, I present them to you anyway. Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role: George Clooney in Up in the Air. I think what gets Clooney the nod over Jeff Bridges’ work in Crazy Heart is his humanitarian work, specifically in Haiti. Bridges gets robbed here. Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role: Meryl Streep in Julia & Julia. I know that Sandra Bullock won a Golden Globe, but she has a problem. Well, several actually – do we start at Speed or Miss Congeniality ... The Academy never forgets. That leaves Mirren and Streep, and as I’ve heard more about Streep’s veritably becoming Julia Childs, I think she takes home the Oscar. Best Animated Feature Film of the Year: Up. This is still a category? Here I thought they just handed this award to Disney/Pixar every year. Best Motion Picture of the Year: Avatar. If The Academy doesn’t at least pander to the public a little bit, I think they’ll risk public outrage. That said, I think that Up and District 9 are both alternatives just as, if not more, deserving, simply based on the content of the works rather than their shiny veneer of “innovation.” by michael mcgarry, film studies teacher Avatar may finally be at the end of its film dominance, but that has not diminished its worldwide take of over $2.4 billion in just over 60 days.

Changing Technology 4 R&W January 2010 A PERFECT : W ith technology becoming an ever- growing part of education, many students find themselves without the luxury of having their own computers to access the Internet and work on school projects. Providing students with their own laptops would even out the playing field for families who otherwise do not have home computers. In an effort to prepare students for lifelong learning, progressive educator Dr. Gary Stager was among the first who explored the idea of the 1:1 laptop initiative, which was named for the ratio of students to laptops in this program. In 2000, Maine’s state Department of Education embraced the 1:1 program, an effort similar to PA’s Classrooms For the Future (CFF), but instead of laptop carts in classrooms, Maine provided each student with their own machine. In the past five years, over $283,000 was spent on laptops for students in our district, and although the district would still need to purchase insurance and software licenses, the 1:1 program would be more economically efficient. “Financially, we would be saving $80,000 a year by purchasing netbooks for each student on a four-year plan,” says District Director of Technology Gary Honabach, who notes that Selinsgrove schools have implemented the program but not without facing several complications. Some students realize that laptops would only be a first step for integrating such technology. File sharing between home and school can sometimes be difficult and frustrating. “Students who only have one computer at home are restricted with saving data and with the amount of time they spend on it,” says junior Tyler Dalious. “Providing every child with a computer could make things much easier.” The 1:1 program has the potential to change everything about teaching and learning. “This could benefit the faculty because it offers the ability to access educational content through technology in any classroom in any part of the building,” says Honabach. English teacher Michael McGarry, whose students use laptops on a daily basis, believes changes will be needed to help the project succeed in an educational manner. “Technology in education is wonderful, but it will be difficult to contain,” says McGarry. Using just one computer for four years has some obvious drawbacks. “I think the initiative has good intentions, but with the way technology changes, the computer that was given to a student for four years could become obsolete by our senior year,” says freshman Forrest Bennett, who uses an Asus netbook that he received for Christmas. “The best case would be the implementation in the 2011-2012 school year,” says Honabach. “But honestly, there is a lot of work to be done.” School District Business Manager Michael Upton proposed a radical plan at a recent school board meeting that would provide every BHS freshman with a laptop to use through graduation. by brittany karpinski []

Team members include juniors Adam Sosnoski, Michael Recla, Seth Loff, Spencer Eriksen, senior Jack Breisch and junior Logan Mauk. AROUND THE SCHOOL by gavin pellitteri On Jan. 30, juniors Seth Loff, Adam Sosnoski, Michael Recla, Spencer Eriksen, Logan Mauk and senior Jack Breisch won a charity dodgeball tournament at Central High School. The team defeated 23 teams to become victors of this first year tournament that raised over $1,000 in charitable funds that will be given to the family of Sam Brown, a Central Middle School student who was injured after being allegedly bullied in school. Just last week, charges were filed as part of an ongoing investigation by local police. “We all had a great time playing, and it was for a really good cause,” says tournament MVP Recla. The guys called themselves Team Nasty, and they started with two goals. “We wanted to enter the tournament because it was for a great cause, and we knew we would have a great time beating everybody,” adds Sosnoski.

Photos by Seth Loff and Courtney Sabo Advisers Jon Cubik and Mark Keeley found time in their student teaching schedules with social studies teacher Ron Grzybowski and math teacher Michael Kakaley to organize and supervise a Chess Club, which meets every Wednesday afternoon. Each meeting begins with black and white pieces flying across red and black chessboards that dot cafeteria tables, but the best part is that experience is not necessary. Chess Club is for experienced players and those who just want to know in which direction the rook can travel. With a turnout of about 20 members, both advisers have been pleasantly surprised by the interest in the game and in gaming strategies. If chess is your game or if learning the skills of combat on a 64-square board brings out your competitive nature, you may have found your niche.

R&W WINS PRO STATE AWARDS by staff The Pennsylvania Newspaper Association (PNA) just released their 2010 Scholastic Keystone Award winners, and from the thousands of entries vying for the 39 potential winners, R&W staff members won two. A first place award went to editor-in-chief and production editor Courtney Sabo for her page design titled Balancing the Equation. Professional journalists and art designers commented that Sabo’s entry was “as good as any professional publication’s best effort.” This is Sabo’s second consecutive first place entry in the PNA Keystone competition. Staff writer Meghan Ashford earned an honorable mention for her coverage of students who volunteered their time this past summer in Rwanda in her feature, Rebuilding Rwanda. Both girls have been invited to attend the scholastic awards luncheon at the Hershey Lodge on March 17. Our concert band was represented at PMEA District 8 Concert Band by seniors Matt Day, Tim Gordon and Emily Hudock. Day and Hudock then earned first chair status going into Regional Band, which will be held later this year. R&W staff members Courtney Sabo and Meghan Ashford earned state recognition from the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association. TALENT PROPELS 3 TO REGIONAL BAND by gavin pellitteri

This year’s production tells the story of a woman named Maria who travels from an abbey to assist Naval captain Georg Von Trapp with his seven impish children. During Maria’s stay, Mother Abbess works furtively as Maria’s guardian to help her to achieve happiness. Davis’ goal is to portray Mother Abbess as accurately as possible, and her first step towards mastering Mother Abbess’ personality starts with insight. So, Davis and her fellow acting nuns journeyed to the Saint Cyril and Methodius Congressional for an in-depth experience. “We really wanted to get a feel for what their life is like every day and their motivations behind it,” says Davis. And they found that the Sisters of Saint Cyril and Methodius have embraced every aspect of their spiritual beliefs. “As a nun, we take three vows to the simple life: poverty, chastity and obedience,” says Villa Elementary School Principal Sister Donna Marie, goals that Davis embraced for her part. But Davis was not always enthusiastic about her role as a nun. “I didn’t think I would like it at first,” she says. “I thought it might be too dowdy and strict.” But with her parents’ support, Davis was soon on her way. “They bought me a lot of nun-related things for Christmas,” says Davis, who particularly enjoys her racing nun action figures. “They think it’s hysterical,” she says. “We sometimes play with them at play practice.” When the cast is not clowning around with the racing nuns, Davis focuses on her role because her part includes more than just the physical aspect. “[The Sound of Music co-director Timothy] Latsha had us sit and imagine our character, thinking about their weaknesses and strengths,” says Davis.Because their weekly practice allowed time for self-reflection, Davis found the mental connection with Mother Abbess. “She is open to the idea that not everyone is cut out to be a nun,” says Davis. And now that she is breathing life into her part, Davis revised her original opinion. “I have really grown to like it,” says Davis, “and I really love her songs.” Sister Donna Marie, who speaks to every performer but applauds Davis. “Every actor has to try to understand their role,” she says. “I think it’s great that Julia is understanding the part.” The potency of this musical speaks to all, including Sister Donna Marie. “I had a chance to meet the Trapp Family, and I think it’s a good representation,” she says. “It’s a wonderful story.” SISTER, SISTER GETTING INTO HER HABIT For senior Julia Davis, getting into character for her role of Mother Abbess in the production The Sound of Music transcends costume and makeup. by ilea franklin Cast members who will be playing nuns and co-director Timothy Latsha listen intently as Villa Chaplin Sister Maria Theresa Hronec explains her life as a nun during a recent visit.

  35. 35. 77 Photos by staff STUDENTS SET THE STAGE W orking diligently in eight-hour shifts, these workers have been showing up for the past six Saturdays to cut materials, then sand, assemble, prime and paint the elaborate set which features two stories of the Von Trapp mansion, a gazebo, a terrace and the interior of an abbey. Much planning and research went into the layout of the set according to co-director Timothy Latsha, who drew inspiration from a number of sources. “We had gone to see Susquehanna University’s production of The Sound of Music in November, which confirmed some of the ideas that we had discussed in August during our initial set design talks,” says Latsha, who was assisted in the task of designing by co-director and visual coordinator Katie Pollard and BHS alumnus Brian Tretter. However, local productions were not the only muse for the set design. In fact, they were only the beginning. “We examined some of the Austrian topography and architecture in determining the shape, color, texture and design of the set pieces,” explains Latsha. “The inspiration for design of the walls of the abbey came from looking at pictures on the Internet of the Nonnberg Abbey. For the interior of the mansion, we saw a clip of the interior of the [Von Trapp] mansion in Austria.” The production takes place March 5 and 6 with 7:30 show times on both days and a Saturday matinee at 1:00. With the tech crew enlisting the help of actors and parents, the set design for this year’s drama production The Sound of Music has proved to be an ambitious project for a willing cast and crew. by andrea fronsman, features editor With three weeks before opening night, the house set with its showcase stairway is getting its first coat of paint and some finishing touches.

  36. 36. Paying to Play 10 R&W February 2010 Photo by staff B ut what is the truth behind that claim, especially when the athletic department provides the basic equipment required for most sports? Football players are outfitted with shoulder pads, knee pads, helmets, jerseys and pants which could total $250. But footwear is not provided, so what are players wearing? “I spent $100 on my cleats. The season is hard on them, so I usually have to get new ones every year,” says junior running back Michael Noll. But $100 does not put Noll onto the short list of high-end budgets. Junior tennis player Amy Lynn spends over $315 on merchandise which she needs to compete in the upcoming seasons. She ticks off the basics, “Racket ($175), tennis balls ($10 to start), sneakers ($70), bag ($50) and grip tape ($10). My parents buy me the necessities, and any extra things I want, I pay for,” says Lynn. To help cover the expenses of these items, Lynn has a part time job, which paid for her sports bag and tennis footwear. A quick look at the baseball field, and equipment costs take a significant jump. Junior baseball player Seth Loff spends an estimated $650 on his equipment. The biggest portion of this is spent on his catcher’s gear ($200), but that is just where he starts. Now throw in batting gloves ($20), cleats ($80), catcher’s gloves ($100), outfielder’s glove ($90), his own batting helmet ($40) and a personal bat ($120), and his part time job at Weis Markets becomes essential. “My parents used to buy my gear until I got a job. Now I have to pay for a lot of it,” says Loff. Even though the needed equipment is pricey, he adds, “It lasts, so I don’t have to buy new stuff every year.” Most Expensive Sport But the golf course is where the real money starts to add up. Loff and Lynn together invest over $1,065 in their athletic activities, but that pales next to senior golfer Pat Dillon’s holdings. Dillon’s inventory lists clubs ($2,250), bag ($250), shoes ($100) and 12 golf balls ($50) which must be replaced every two to three rounds. Does he have any good financial news? “My bag and clubs will last about three years, and my shoes will make it two years before I have to replace them,” says Dillon. Now multiply all this by the number of students who participate in varsity sports just in this high school, and the total is a staggering amount. But for those who want to just play the game, teams provide much of what is needed for a successful career, and lower-priced products often are just as good for the starting athlete. The consensus is that the more expensive the product, the better it must be. And that opinion often results in believing that sports have become too expensive for the average high school athlete. by tyler lunger THE COST OF SPORTSWHAT’STHE MOSTEXPENSIVE SPORTSGEAR YOUHAVE PURCHASED? “I got a Merican field hockey stick, and that was $250.” Tori Malatesta (11) [] “Nike football cleats that cost $150.” Kevin Gross (09) “I spend $60 on costumes for many dance recitals.” Amanda Shaleen (09) collectedbylukeklingler, sportseditor Junior Jordyn Siciliano, who plays soccer and runs track, poses with a variety of sports equipment at Schuylkill Valley Sports.
