Pipeline Monologue Project: Javier Peraza & Kevin Courtney

In World History class my fellow peers and I have been actively engaged with a topic of herculean controversy that has even pondered President Obama on what should be done. We have dived into the research and collaboration of the Keystone Xl Pipeline and all the intuitiveness that is carried with it. Most people applied beginning questions such as “What even is the KeyStone pipeline?” and “How does this affect me?”. Over the course of the lesson we began to learn that the pipeline was a proposed idea for an independent refined oil source that would run through the United States from Canada. Everyone was tasked to understand the viewpoints of people who were pro pipeline and people who were against it. It gave us a chance to step into someone else’ shoes and think differently. This change of thought better supported growth in our minds and helped our ability to see multiple theorems and possibilities. Some standpoints included how the pipeline could do nothing but benefit us due to its extreme safety and economical abutment. Others argued that the pipeline would be dangerous to the environment and could cause feuds with other countries. The students of the history class were involved in much research and many activities. Our last and final project was to create monologues that represented different arguments and people who are somehow connected to the pipeline. The project itself was fun, manageable and gave the class an opportunity to matriculate a subject unique to us.5 

Key Facts about the Keystone Pipeline

 - The Alberta Tar Sands oil development is garnering attention again as pro-energy forces on both sides of the U.S.-Canadian border increase pressure on the U.S. Government to approve TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline.

- Keystone XL is an export pipeline. According to the presentations to investors, Gulf Coast refiners plan to refine the cheap Canadian crude supplied by the pipeline into diesel and other products for export to Europe and Latin America.

- Reducing demand for oil is the best way to improve our energy security. U.S. demand for oil has been declining since 2007. New fuel-efficiency standards mean that this trend will continue once the economy gets back on track.

- “Its a given that the crime activity increases and hospitals are getting more use, and housing is so expensive. Sure, there are jobs, but you can’t find anywhere to live.” - Assiniboine and Sioux Rural Water Supply Commissioner Bill Whitehead 

- “The Keystone XL pipeline is not in the national interest. This pipeline, which is proposed to carry Canadian tar sands oil to the Gulf Coast, is for the purpose of generating profit for a private company, it is for a private use. It will generate very few jobs, and the oil is destined for export markets.” - Northern Plains Resource Council

Green Words

(Outgoing ring of telephone. Rings then goes to voicemail. Man waits for voicemail to be over then he leaves his message. Sighs continually before speaking.)

“Hey Maria, it’s uhm your husband Tom...you’re probably not home right now or you’d answer the phone. This is my uhm fifth time I’ve called you. Maybe you got a new number or something. Maybe I just have the wrong one. Ha-ha eh its been so long since I’ve been home I don’t even remember our number. Well I mean your number now so..I tried asking your mother but she won’t have anything to do with me. She says I'm no good for you but I know she’s wrong. I know I am plenty good for you. Good for us. Look I miss you Maria, I miss our son. That’s all I do anymore is think of the two of you. I just wanna come home and have things be like they were before. I have my shit together, I do I SWEAR I DO! REALLY! I even went to one of those head doctors, shrinks I think they call them. He said that I’ve improved tremendously since the uhm..accident. I just really wanna go home and be with you and our boy. Just please...hear me out. It was all because of that dreaded pipeline I swear to you it...”

(Hangs up phone, presses head against telephone box, and starts to sob while banging his fist against the wall) 

(Calls again later. After a few rings someone picks up on the other line. Tom doesn't hesitate to answer.)

“Hey bab-Maria. I mean uhm Maria. Yes Maria. Can we talk now I just really-..no I did not get the divorce papers yet. Yea well because-...but-..yes but..Can we just talk about this please? YES! THANK YOU! Thank you so much… I uhm you know I have been sober for two weeks straight now. No I’m not lying-yes I know thats why I stopped! I don’t want our Kevin to be exposed to that kind of stuff either. I can come home now, I’ve stopped really-Now just wait one minute he is my son too!! Of course he is OUR Kevin, HE IS OUR CHILD FOR GOD’S SAKE!!! No no I’m sorry don’t hang up on me please. I didn’t mean to yell. There’s nothing wrong with me honest! It just all changed on that morning….It wasn’t my fault.. I woke up that day and went to guard the pipeline from protesters. It was getting harder and harder to do. While those damn Americans took their good old time deciding whether or not to allow our pipeline across their country more and more riots had been breaking out everywhere. Meanwhile we are up here freezing our asses off with a potential source of refined oil that we can’t possibly use until we have their pathetic consent!-Yes I know you’ve heard the story plenty of times but not this one just listen please. Those damn full of manure tree huggers were having a huge protest right next to the pipeline. They were jumping up and down on the thing and smashing bottles against it. I honestly hate them all, making my job harder. My badge did nothing. The right and just presence of a state trooper phased them none. Well everything was happening so fast-I uhm I know you have work just please listen a little more-....there was a man there. He seemed like the big guy, the damn leader of those hippie liberals...eh-he uhm he uhm had an axe. Everyone was cheering him on as he delivered a vicious harangue and pretty soon things got even more out of control. He went to start hacking away at the pipeline. I don’t know what he was thinking-he couldn’t possibly damage all 329 miles of it in Canada but I-I-...when the bullet penetrated his body everyone went silent. It was one of the most horrific things I’ve ever witnessed...I’ve ever committed. All I could think about as his limp body hit the ground was who this man was. I later found out that he had a family. Wife, kids, a brother...I didn't want to leave our family after that but I was scared!-..I got to thinking and maybe them tree huggers-I mean people..maybe they have a point. I never cared about the environment and shit like that. I only cared about protecting the community but I’m starting to realize that protecting the community involves protecting where the community lies. The Americans are right. They should proceed with caution for such a matter. Maybe I’ll go on to write my own speech and dance around a tree like those hippies-uh those people that care ‘bout where we live. I don’t wanna drink through my nights anymore, I wanna be with you and Kevin. Just please give me that last chance I’ll even-what? You really have to go now?..Uhm tell Kevin his father says hi..I love you-”

(Phone hangs up on other line. Tom starts to sob)

I didn’t mean it...I-I regret.. everything.

The Thorn In The Birch

Green blades of grass bristled my hooves as I pranced through the open field.  The white, fluffy stuff that falls from the blue dome above covered the field in patches. My brown fur sheathed me from the cold while my horns of masculine dominance showed justly. Right hoof, left hoof, right hoof, left hoof. Moving was instinct. I was looking for my kith. Right hoof, left hoof. Look for kith. Right hoof, Left hoof. My kindred must be around somewhere. The field with the white, fluffy stuff was only a short breadth from where my kindred lie in home valley. A quick whisk through the tall beings that supplied nutrients was all that was needed to reach the lowland. I bobbed and weaved through the gracious beings with meshy, green camouflage and hopped over the lifeless grey spheres that strived on the ground. Quickly I bustled into the valley only to find it empty of my family. SNIFF SNIFF. I smelled for them. SNIFF SNIFF. No scent was picked up. SNIFF SNIFF. My only thought was that they went to quench thirst at the path filled with moving clear liquid. As I was about to right hoof, left hoof it out of the valley I noticed a strange monolith, grey in color, that reigned sideways through my home. All around it was pulled up grass and destroyed shelters created from branches. My home that I had lived in for my entire escence of time was gone. The monolith was not there aforetime ago but it certainly was relevant with the stranger stuff that was going on. I first saw them when the silver circle bequeathed the blue dome two times before today. Weird looking creatures with peach, mushy fur that stretched across their whole bodies. They galloped on twos instead of fours and had long tendril like things coming out of their arms. They emitted foreign sounds while creating abstract gestures. They held in their tendrils long strips with symbols on them in which they placed on the ground. After picking them back up they inscribed more symbols on a square board. When they left I thought no more of it but now after seeing this substructure in the valley I was almost certain it had to do with them. Suddenly the monolith shook and started oozing out a black honey that had a horrible stench. Singing creatures that soared in the sky got stuck in it as they landed. As it spread, the tall nutrient bearing beings cloaked in green fumed up in red and emitted intolerable heat. I turned, dashed away immediately and in an instant was taken hold by aptitude. I barely noticed the other creatures rush by me in blurs as the rest of the forest was overwhelmed more by that heated, red element. The furry creatures that dig holes in the ground blew up in red. The flying beings fell from the blue dome as black ghosts puffed in the air. Soon I was out of the chaos and stood alone in an empty clearing. Alone. With no great alpha to guide my journey in the forest. Alone. With no kindred to buckle antlers against. Alone. With no mate to even dare attempt continuing legacy. Alone. With nothing but a grey monolith whose purpose in the forest I surely hoped was greater than the lives of my cousins that called such forest home first. 

Obama Turnover

(Walking through the hallway towards her husband’s office and immediately calling for him for plans for the night.)

“Barack...Barack. Are you in there I need to ask you something about tonight? Hello there gentlemen how are you doing today? Thats good I’m doing fine. Is the president in there? Thank you. (Opens the door of the office.) Barack...Barack. Are you in here? Hmm... He might be in the bathroom or he’s just not here. Barack can you hear me? Are you hiding from me, I want to talk about dinner tonight...you know with the kids. Its the first in a month we get to have dinner as a whole unit.”
(Cell phone rings..)
 “Hello? Oh Barack hi... umm Where are you? Your where? Atlanta! What the hell are you doing down there? Barack you know were suppose to be having dinner with the kids even my parents are coming over. Oh your sorry that I told you this plenty of times Barack c’mon...umm like really I had this all planned out. You better be back on time. Ok FINE!!!... Love you too, see you soon. 
(Starts walking away and hears a folder full of papers hitting the ground softly, and turns around.) Hmm....What's this? Is this.....(gasp of silence). What’s going on here? Is this one of Barack’s plan? The Keystone Pipeline. I’ve never heard of this. (Starts reading the proposal) The Keystone pipeline is ....(gasp)Oh No I have to call Barack. (Dials the phone and goes to voicemail) BARACK!!! You have a lot of explaining to do when you get home later today. I know you're probably doing a speech right now like you always do every time you visit a state but, its about this Keystone Pipeline thing..umm What's this all about? We need to talk in private later tonight. Bye. (hangs up phone.) (Reads more of the proposal) The keystone pipeline is suppose to be in service by 2015. It suppose to run 329 miles through Canada and 858 miles in the U.S. This will create 20,000 jobs to help people. $585 million in taxes!! Ok this is not right...right for our environment. Ohh Barack(pause) I can’t wait to yell at you. Why would you agree to this. Thats a shit load of oil being pumped for that amount of miles. This can hurt the people. This...this....this can hurt the whole environment. (She throws the paper runs out the room).  

Mended Spirits

(Kenny is walking with his boss. The phone rings and Kenny picks up the phone and hears bad news about his brother Louis, while walking near area )

“Hello? Oh hi mom. What’s going on? And why you sound like you're about to burst into tears. Wait What!!!! What the fuck you mean Louis is dead. Stop playing a joke on me mom this isn’t funny. ARE YOU BEING SERIOUS RIGHT NOW. no no No No NO NO NOOOO!!!!! How did he get killed ?!! Pipeline? What Damn pipeline theres plenty of pipelines throughout Canada. The Keystone pipeline. That new pipeline that is “suppose” to help us canadians. Wait he was shot. By who? A cop?! Why was he even shot. Mom I got to go...No I’ll call you later.”
(He hangs up the phone and starts screaming) “AHHHHHHHH NOOO WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY? WHAT DID HE EVER DO WRONG. (Kenny’s Boss ask what's wrong) What’s wrong with me? Oh umm let me put it this way. MY BROTHER WAS SHOT AND NOW HE IS DEAD! Don’t tell me calm down! Im sick and tired of all the negativity that gets put on. You know what I’m done. I QUIT MY JOB! Now get out of here before I take out all my anger on you.” 
(Kenny’s Boss runs away. Kenny then kicks down a trash can and pulls out his phone and hits the record button on his camera) “Listen up Canada and people in the U.S and listen up real good. Ask yourself this. Is the Keystone Pipeline affecting our environment? Well let me tell you a little story. Moments ago I don’t know when..umm My brother has been shot to death for purposely “attacking” the pipeline. Now I’m not sure if you love the pipeline or you hate the pipeline, but if you’re a person who hates it, I agree with you (Pointing his finger to the camera). I can already see of what’s happening. People starting riots, holding up signs that say stop the keystone pipeline. Now I’m a shy guy, but now its time to stand up and raise our voices to protect our land and our freedom. Us Canadians and quite frankly Americans don’t want to have higher taxes. This is all just for oil. Are you kidding me? Now let me ask you this. What if all of the oil oozed out, what do you think would happen to our land? What would happen to the wild creatures that live on our land and protect their own kindred. As of right now I’m going to be a protester to support my brother who didn’t deserve to die over this dang pipeline. Obama or anyone specific working on this pipeline is watching at this moment...we're going to take this pipeline down. You don’t know who you're messing with. (Hits the stop button on his phone)     


A Toppling Democracy

(Governor of Nebraska walks into office and sits at desk. After reading a report from one of his officials, he sighs and pulls out his personal voice recorder in which he uses to journal is thoughts. He leans back in his desk, turns on recorder, and starts speaking)

“It has been two years since the Keystone Pipeline has been introduced into our pinnacle of society...yet my campaign to creating a better economy has gone nowhere but south. I consented to the pipeline due to the benefits that it could bring to our country. Only a few on our side of the border stand with me to seeing those benefits. To seeing true reason. The need for independence in energy renewal for this country is at an all time high. We must reduce the conflicts for oil in other countries and start coming to tangible solutions for energy resources with actual allies of us. Not lead our own country men into war when there is something we can all agree on that causes no violence. I was subtle, strong as a wall but still subtle. I have tried not to take the more radical approach but I think the call for radicalness is upon us. If even the President can not come to a conclusion soon then who can? I believe I am that person. I am quite aware of what the duties as the Governor of Nebraska are and what kind of social respect comes with such but these are hard times and hard times come with even harder reprimandations. I believe it is time for diplomatic immunity. I don’t see myself as a bad man but one who wants to see his country and countrymen thrive to their potential. Because of this I am warranting the arrest of any protester that dares raise a single finger against the Keystone Pipeline in the borders of Nebraska. I want those traitors to our country to be locked away in a cell far underground. I want them to feel pain, I want them in my grasps- uhm hi baby girl…-no Daddy can’t play right now. Because Daddy has work to do...NO DON’T TOUCH THAT SWEETY- No-

(Voice recorder ends suddenly as little girl grabs it and turns it off accidentally)

Power Of Writing

At a young age I felt as if writing was just something I had to do I didn't recognize the power of writing. Today I can testify differently at this day and age for writing has revealed it's true colors to me. Writing is a tool of communication between myself and others.Writing has been my refuge in many moments of self doubt fear and life tribulations . As a result of writing I have had the liberation to save myself through my words. Through writing my thoughts have been reaffirmed. I have been able to lend words of wisdom to ones In need and receive as well through writing. I have been able to capture and revisit history.I find myself everyday through writing.

Article #6: “Técnicos argentinos utilizan gases de vacas como fuente de energía”


Técnicos del Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria dijeron, “¿Imagina un vehículo que funcione con metano generado en el rumen de las vacas?” Este artículo sobre un equipo de técnicos del Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria quien tienen examen una sistema a crea gases de las vacas para usar como fuente energética. El gas metana de los estómagos de las vacas puede usado para carros con motor y más. Técnicos del Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria dijeron, “...en aquellos lugares donde no llega el suministro convencional, los productores tengan una alternativa para cocinar, iluminar sus viviendas e, incluso, manejar sus autos.” 



Una sistema es complicado. La cantidad depende sobre la cantidad de comida que las vacas comen y el tamaño de la vaca.  El coordinador del proyecto dije, “La cantidad de gases recolectados varía según el alimento ingerido y el tamaño del ejemplar: una vaca adulta emite cerca de 1.200 litros por día, de los cuales entre 250 y 300 son metano.” Elegí este artículo porque el artículo pareció interesante. Yo nunca de la vaca productor el gas. No sé cómo siento sobre las vacas ser usado para el gas. Yo pienso las vacas no debería usado para el gas. Allí son otro métodos para fuentes energéticas.

El anillo de compromiso de Kim Kardashian se vende por 749,000 dólares”


El novio de Kim Kardashian ahora mismo es Kanye West. Ellos tienen un bebé niña juntos. Nombre de bebé es North West. Kim Kardashian casó famoso NBA jugador de baloncesto se llama Kris Humphries en 2011 de Noviembre. Ellos estuvieron casasteis para setenta y dos todos los días. Kim Kardashian y Kris Humphries gastaron diez millones de dólares en la boda. Kris Humphries compró anillo de compromiso para dos millones de dólares para Kim Kardashian. En Octubre 2011, Kris y Kim anunciaron van a divorciarse. Ahora Kim Kardashian vendía el anillo de compromiso para setecientos cuarenta y nueve mil de dólares en la subasta en martes. El anillo de compromiso estuvo veinte quilates. Sin embargo, ella no dice anillo de Kris. Elegí este artículo porque me gusta leer y escribo sobre celebridad en español para clase. Aprendí no casar alguien para setenta y dos todos los días en el futuro. En vida, necesitamos estar consciente de quién nosotros casan. Porque casa alguien es decisión importante. Pienso Kim Kardashian no debe tuvo vendió el anillo. Porque Kris Humphries compraba el anillo con su dinero y ella es recibe el dinero. No es justo. Kim es codiciosa sobre dinero a veces y es triste.

El Baile y Implicaciones Culturales


Una compañía de baile es en Filadelfia. ¿Por qué? Tienen un nuevo espectáculo. Aparentemente, es fantástico. Se llama es “las llamas del deseo.” Espectacular. Es muy romántico y hay tango. Tango es un viejo baile y viene de Argentina. El espectáculo tiene diferentes “temas románticos” como si esto existe. ¡Ja! Hay un tema. Es romántica. No más. Decir más es mentira. 

Aun así, hay un poco de música. Esto es bueno para el espectáculo porque necesitas música bailar. Música es hermosa. Baile es bonito. Música es la belleza que atrae todos en la sala. Baile sólo es la glaseado. La mermelada en el pan. Atrae a los ojos pero no las orejas. El pan es el carne.

Una comañía de baile. ¡En Filadelfia! ¿Quizá está bueno, pero noticias? No estoy tan seguro. Quizá soy un cínico, quizá soy muy crítico. ¿Pero a quién le importa? Lo siento haber perdido el tiempo, mi lector. Es la terrible verdad que este artículo fue escritó. ¡Y en la portada! ¿Cómo podría ellos? Lo siento.

Ahora avanza, este artículo es muy sublime. De lo ridículo a lo sublime. El escritor del artículo es bueno en la escritura. Está bueno porque es un escritor. ¡Muy cómico!

Article #5: “Cáncer de mama: lo que está en tu mano”



Este artículo sobre cáncer de mama en mujeres. Científicos dijeron el porcentaje  de supervivencia es hoy muy elevado. El porcentaje es ochenta por ciento. Muchas mujeres preguntan el Doctors, “¿Qué puedo hacer para evitar padecerlo?” No muchas mujeres sabe que hacer a prevenir cáncer. Veinte y ocho punto ocho por ciento de mujeres tienen los tumores. Que es más de veintisiete mil casos anuales en España. 



Cáncer de mama no poder ser previno. El artículo dije, “Aún no se puede prevenir por la sencilla razón de que por el momento se desconoce qué lleva a la mama a albergar células malignas.” Aunque cáncer no poder ser prevenir, allí son las pautas que reduce las posibilidades de cáncer. Dr. Cesar Rodriguez declaró, “El incremento de casos de cáncer de mama parece tener relación con un cambio en los hábitos de vida.” Elegí este artículo porque yo era curioso y soy interesado en el tema de cáncer. 



Cáncer está muy interesante enfermedad porque allí es no cura y lo no poder ser previno. Está muy triste que personas murieron de cáncer porque allí es no cura. Allí muchos curas para otros enfermedades pero no cura para cáncer. ¿Por que es no cura para cáncer? Me pregunto qué hace cáncer diferente desde otro enfermedades.

Vote For A Voice

We decided to create a poster that represents the negative outcome of not voting. Many people in today's society complain about what the government is doing. However, when you don't vote, you take away your voice. All that complaining means nothing. With that in mind, research, discover, vote. 

Thank You, Enjoy.

Artículo Semana Seis (con Zack Hersh)

Zack Hersh & Andrew Roberts 10/18/13

Señorita Manuel


Biden dio la bienvenida a empleados federales


Despues del cierre del gobierno, que duraba par diez y seis días largos, el vicepresidente, Joe Biden dio la bienvenida a los empleados federales. Ellos no tenía trabajo para los diez y seis días pasados porque del cierre.  Ellos estaban muy feliz a tener los trabajos otra vez, aunque recibieron dinero durante del cierre del gobierno.  Noventa y tres por ciento del Agencia para la Protección del Medio Ambiente, juntos con muchos agencias otros, no tenía trabajos  durante el cierre del gobierno, pero tienen trabajos ahora.

¿Pero por que cerró el gobierno? No es facil para explicar. El cámara de representantes es principalmente fuera de republicanos, y ellos no les gusta Obamacare. Obamacare es cuidado de la salud que es proporcionado por el gobierno. Porque ellos no les gustan Obamacare, y ellos no podían alcanzar un acuerdo a horario y pasar un presupuesto, el gobierno cerró.

El gobierno hacer un acuerdo solo con algunos horas antes de la fecha límite.  Muchos ciudadanos se preocupaban sobre eso límite, pero lo resolvían a horario. Este ha ocurrido mucho el pasado.

¿Pero que va a ocurrir en enero cuando el gobierno alcanza el límite de la deuda?  Probablemente, va a tener otro cierre del gobierno.  Este ciclo va a ocurrir otra vez, y otra vez, y otra vez.  En los Estados Unidos, tenemos una problem con deuda.

Biden no piensala. El piensa que lo enseñó que un cierre del gobierno no funciona. Si las personas en la cámara de representantes quieren hacer algo, tienen que alcanzar un acuerdo con el resto del gobierno. Hasta entonces, el piensa que este no va ocurrir otra vez. El justo está contento que ha terminado y muchas personas en todo el país va a regresar al trabajo.

Cáncer

Aaron Tang 

#6 Quarter 1

Ms. Manuel 

En dos mil diez, 223,000 personas murieron porque ellos tiene cáncer. La aire tienes contaminación cuando personas juegan con tecnologías. El contaminación es muy peligroso para el contaminación es en la atmosférica. Muchos personas tiene cáncer y es muy mal. En científica, tumores son en pulmón y vejiga. Las personas respirar la aire y es difícil limpiar la aire. En China, hay muchos fábricas y el contaminación es súper mal y hay más personas van a respirar el humo. Es importante cuando el mundo tiene calor. También, Agencia Europea del médico dijo 90% personas respira mal aire.

En Estados Unidos, muchos gentes conducen un carro. Es importante cuando personas no caminan. Nosotros come muchos y somos gordos. Yo pienso, personas deben montan un bicicleta.   

Mi familia tiene carro y nosotros vivimos lejos. A veces mis hermanos y yo usamos bicicletas en la parque. Necesitamos un carro ir a ciudad y es rápido. La gasolina es muy cara. Yo sabo muchos personas tienen cáncer. Hay diferentes cáncer y gentes debe ir a hospital. La doctor ayudó mi amigo pensar bien. La aire en el mundo es horrible. Es triste cuando personas muere porque la aire. Personas usan muchos gasolina y electricidad.

*I also did some outside research as to what the Dream Act was because I was unfamiliar with it and the article didn’t really explain what it was, just how they gained support from Christie after a long fight


Despues diez anos, el Dream Act de Nueva Jersey recibieron apoyo de Gobernador Chris Christie.Gobernadoro Chris Christie dio apoyar durante el discurso de Latino Leadership Alliance el 13th de octubre. El Dream Act es un acto que daría educación y alivio a ilegal ninos. Texas, Illinois, Utah, Nebraska, Nueva Mexico, Nueva York, Washington, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, y Maryland todos tienen versiones el Dream Act por universidades y el militar. Niños necesidad de ser en universidad o el militar por el Dream Act trabajo. Ellos no tengo dinero por gobierno.

El Sumario Seis

Crece indignación por muerte de pequeña por asma


Este artículo tomó mi atención porque yo tengo asma. De mi familia, solo me y mi hermano mayor nacíamos con asma. Cuando mi hermano tenía (sobre) quince años, él tuvo asma no más. Yo, sin embargo, todavía asma. Cuando yo leí el título de este artículo, yo estaba en shock ver una niña murió de un ataque de asma.

En el viernes pasado, una niña murió de un ataque de asma porque. El artículo dijo que el colegio, Byrant Elementary:

no lograron calmar la indignación porque la escuela no contaba con una enfermera en turno el 25 de septiembre —la escuela solo cuenta con una enfermera dos días a la semana”.

Está problema es el mismo en mi escuela también. Nuestra enferma solo trabaja dos días de la semana. Que es interesante es que ella es nunca aquí cuando nosotros se necesitamos. Yo estoy asustado que la enfermera no va a ser aquí cuando hay una emergencia muy grande como la niña al colegio Bryant Elementary. Es también extraño como después de este accidente, que gobernador Tom Corbett le da el al distrito un subsidio de $45 millones.

Yo recuerdo cuando yo estaba en el noveno grado en la clase e arte. De repente, mis piernas empezaron temblando. Yo no pode parar ellos. Me convertí muy asustado después de un hora de temblando. Yo iba a mi casa y no fui a escuela para tres días más. Yo estaba muy débil. No persona, incluyendo la enferma, no sé que me pasó que día. Pero yo sé que si la enferma no estaba allí, yo probablemente tendría aún más enfermo.

Es también extraño como después de este accidente, que gobernador Tom Corbett le da el al distrito un subsidio de $45 millones. ¿Qué te pasa? ¿Por qué no nos das la dinero cuando nos lo necesitamos y previene la muerte de la niña? Eso no tiene sentido. Me convierto en triste cuando me dé cuenta de que el gobierno nunca va a nos ayudar en las escuelas públicas hasta que es demasiado tarde.

Estes recortes presupuestarios son muy injusto.

Girls Volleyball Beats Fels

Congratulations to SLA's Girls volley ball team for winning 3-0 games against Samuel Fels High School last Thursday! This is the first year the girls are playing in the gold division and they are holding their own! Junior Klarissa Hudson started off the game tough by scoring 11 points in a row before receiving a serve from Fels. Junior and co-captain Leah Petty lead the team through the second game by scoring six consecutive points, and maneuvering some amazing blocks. The girls played tough and showed great teamwork, just as sophomore Malwina Dymek scored the game point in the last game giving SLA its third win this season. Coach Hirschfield and the team have been practicing hard this season and their efforts are paying off.

The Rockets have three more games left in the season, taking on George Washington HS on Tuesday, Bodine on Thursday, before playing their last game of the season against Lincoln High next Monday. Go Rockets!
