WHAT SPORTS MEANS TO ME

Details (L to R) Rod Woodson, Bishop Luers Essay Contest Winner Colin Brodmerkel, and Jason Fabini

I can't imagine my life without sports; I just know that I would be a completely different person than I am today if I hadn't participated in athletic competition at an early age. First, I am a pretty shy kid. I have been shy my whole life and I didn't have much confidence in myself, but sports has made a dramatic change in me.

MEMORIES OF YONDER HILL

by Leroy Partin

 

Last night I walked a lonely path,
That leads to yonder hill.
My way was bathed in soft moonlight,

ANOTHER BYTE

Details

Tech stocks are volatile. It doesn't take a financial analyst to tell you that. Wall Street is on a giant rollercoaster ride that won't stop or level out. In a volatile market computer manufactures are hoping that one day they can get back to business instead of worrying whether or not they have a business to work at.

Queen Cassiopeia

 

The summer W is located in the northeastern night sky. The wide W-shaped star pattern is the constellation Cassiopeia, the Queen.

Cassiopeia is one of those constellations that can be seen all year long because she circles the North Star. The W shape slowly transforms into an M shape by the time winter arrives and returns as a W each summer. To locate the queen, find the Big Dipper and look to the dipper's right.

Some of the brightest parts of the Milky Way run through...
