Shaunae Bullock A Driving Force At JUHS Shaunae Joy Bullock was born November 12, 1992, in Hemet, California, and is an attending senior at our high school. Being a senior at our high school, you would have to be completely oblivious to not know that Shaunae is a hard working, well driven woman. She has been involved with all of our class activities since the beginning. She and I have been going to school together since elementary and I know all of these things to be true. She has been active in many sports including: softball, basketball, volleyball, and track. Every .opportunity she gets to travel she takes it. So far her list of visited countries include: France Morocco, Italy, Belgium, Mexico, and has visited many states. Shaunae occupies her free time with swimming, reading, traveling, and shopping. Being an avid reader she has many books she loves, but on the top of her list lays the Twilight saga and all books written by Ellen Hopkins. Day to day Shaunae lives by on quote, "Life is about trusting your feelings and taking chances, loosing and finding happiness, appreciating the memories and learning from the past." Shaunae says her huge family is the most important thing in the world to her; she would not still be here if it weren't for them. The opportunity to travel is the greatest thing she could ever ask for, it has made her open her eyes to how diverse the world is. Every place she has visited thus far have always been unique and always containing a fun adventure. In her life she has acquired these awards: winning the contest to attend RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards), CSF for three semesters, and won Teen Miss Julian 2006-2007. Being so involved in our school and other activities has shown that Shaunae truly is a Leader. She has proved to everyone she will do great things in society. I have no doubt in my mind she could be the next President of The United States. My Thoughts by Michele Harvey I Was Taught Practical Things This week I've been washing and ironing crocheted doilies for my shop. As I ironed the third or fourth doily, I tried to remember when I last ironed a doily. It's probably been at least fifty years. When I was a child, nearly every household in our extended family was decorated with traditional furniture and accessories. That included hand crocheted doilies. They were all made by someone in my family. Grandma, her ancestors, or a cousin crocheted, tatted, knit, embroidered and quilted most decorative items, pot holders, tablecloths and napkins that were in our homes when I was a child. Grandma taught me how to wash clothes, doilies and table linens, starch them while they were still damp, and then iron them damp to get a very crisp finish when done. Many of us also machine sewed. My aunt Mickie made Grandpa's pajamas. He stood 5'7" and was at least 4 feet around and he couldn't buy pajamas in his size. Mickie did a fine job of keeping Grandpa in well made pajamas. Before Dad died in the Korean War, mom sewed all of our clothes. During training before shipping off to Korea, dad was stationed in Texas near a fabric factory and mom bought fabric and thread at very good discounts. We sewed, using some of those fabrics and threads well into my teen years. Grandma was a matron in Eastern Star. She was required to wear evening gowns to all of the formal events so she made them, took them apart and used the fabric and trims to make new gowns, Grandma was good at being thrifty, When I was in high school, my mother had her hair styled at a salon a few doors down from a five and dime store. These stores, Woolworth's, Cornets and others were known for their inexpensive products. I used to buy fabric remnants at the five and dime and I sewed them into dresses. Mom worked in downtown San Diego where she found a shop that sold used clothing zippers. Spending a dime each for zippers and about $1.50 for fabric with enough left over to make a matching bow or two for my hair; I made myself quite a nice wardrobe throughout my high school years. I never learned to crochet, knit or tat, however, I learned how to make jams, how to grow fruits and vegetables and to do other household chores that saved money. For years I even darned (patched) socks with my grandmother's darning tools. My heritage is Midwestern, primarily Norwegian and English. The men in my family have been natural born mechanics, repairing their machinery and vehicles, and the women saved money by darning socks and making and remaking their clothes. Flour sacks became our favorite dish towels and we made old wool blankets look new by sewing new binding to the ends. I became an adult in the early 1970s. It was a time of gas rationing and a time of getting back to nature. I grew my own grapes, berries and vegetables in my 25 by 75 foot garden across the back of my property in El Cajon. I made my husbands shirts on my 1943 Necchi sewing machine and developed and printed film from my own photos. It was a time of self reliance that I always try to cling to in any way I can. As an adult who didn't always have enough money to hire people for the necessary repairs to my house; I taught myself how to insulate my house, install dry wall, build rock walls, build a fox proof chicken coop, build storage shelves, hang wall paper and install linoleum flooring. Living in the back country is a lifestyle that offers many ways to get back to basics. Many of my friends and acquaintances sew or weave. Many raise their own gardens, chickens, goats or other animals for food or clothing. Community gardens have brought people together to share in nutritious bounty. Many of us have successfully bartered for goods or services. And many of us buy all the goods we need on a daily basis without traveling more than a few miles, saving gas and wear of our vehicles. Our world changes each day. Financially our world seems to be spiraling down. Blame it on the politicians or blame it on the fazes of the moon. In truth; we don't know what tomorrow may bring. Will we still have our jobs, our homes and our health insurance? One reason business is down across the country is because people are so unsure of their financial futures. Learning practical ways to save money is a good beginning at having a better future. Self reliance brings some self respect and self assurance. Knowing that we can rely on ourselves when we can't seem to be able to rely on the world around us makes life a bit less stressful. It worked in my family during the great depression and before that, because I come from frugal ancestors. I'm sure that I'm not as good as they were at saving money. But I do what I can. Where to begin? If you have flower beds; line them with a few strawberry plants or chives. They look really good in the yard and are edible. Deer and wild turkeys probably won't want to eat the chives and a roof of chicken wire over the strawberries will help to protect them. Keep your ears tuned to any way you can help someone and get help for yourself at the same time. When you see bargain prices at the grocery store, stock up. Make large batches of food and freeze the extras in single meal quantities. I don't like making lasagnas or enchiladas. I really like to eat them, so I make nine or ten lasagnas at one time. Nine or ten pans of enchiladas in the freezer next to them along with some packages of home made soups and stews makes my life easier in the summer when I want to work in my yard until nearly dark. I've read about groups of women who get together and all prepare meals for all of their families. They spend an entire day preparing enough food to last each family more than a week. They all bring some of the ingredients and go home with several finished dinners after having a great time together. One year Mom took us children on vacation. Grandma came to our house and decided to clean it. In one bedroom was a worn oriental rug. Grandma gave it to the gardener without asking my Mom and one of Mom's favorite cream colored colonial bedspreads spent the week at Grandmas getting bleached then hung on the clothesline every day. Grandma didn't understand that people sometimes buy things on purpose that are off-white. She thought the bedspread had faded to that color and was sure that she was doing my Mom a practical favor. Within a few months the bedspread fell apart from all the bleaching. Not as practical as Grandma planned. Occasionally self reliance can go a bit too far. These are my thoughts. Strange But True by Samantha Weaver It was Soviet-born American professor and science-fiction author Isaac Asimov who made the following sage observation: "The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom." If you ever travel to the British territory of Bermuda, you might want to stop off in Ely to see the world's smallest drawbridge. Somerset Bridge is less than 20 feet from one embankment to the other, and when the draws are raised, there's barely enough room for a single small sailboat to pass. Early in its history, the Catholic Church decreed that imbibing coffee was sinful. It was Pope Clement VIII who, in 1592, declared it to be a Christian drink.
