November 19, 2014 The Julian News 7 Volume 3 - Issue 4 November 19, 2014 Page 1 Sonja Kodimer, Advisor Lauren Vandewalle, Student Editor Catching Our Breath And Saying Thanks by Lauren Vandewalle October is a hectic month for the ASB(Associated Student Body), starting with Homecoming to deal with and winding down to Halloween. Mrs. Arias and Mrs. Welch have done a spectacular job motivating and encouraging ASB members through various events and activities. All teachers and classified staff were extremely supportive and helpful throughout the Homecoming pep rally, parade, football game, and dance as well. Community members have been especially vital to making the past few months successful, and the ASB would like to thank all involved in its activities. All who attended the Homecoming Parade will agree that itwas a hit. Floats made by competing classes and fancy cars chauffeuring beautiful high school royalty provided excellent entertainment. Sports cars and vintage cars were generously provided by Mrs. Bakken, Mr. and Mrs. Sanner, Mr. Smelser, Mr. Carter, Mrs. Copeland, and Mr. and Mrs Menghini, who provided three cars. None of this would have been possible without the help of the CHP, Julian Fire Department, CaI-Fire, and local sheriffs. The Homecoming Game, which was even more fun due to the Eagles' victory, was able to be held at night because lights were provided. This was a gift from the students of the Class of 2014. As a senior class gift, they donated the lights for this year's football game. Sandy Moretti's forklift was used to load and unload the lights, a job that Mr. Masch administered. Buddy Seifert set up, maintained, and provided gas for the lights. The evening was started by Livia Limon singing The National Anthem. The senior court was wheeled to its stage in Kirby Winn's golfcart; decked out with streamers. High school staff and parents manned the gates at the game. Special thanks to Mrs. Schuett, Mrs. Wylie, Mrs. LaChusa, Mrs. Masch, Mrs. Fleet, Mrs. Jasper, Mrs. Bakken, Mrs. Kuiper, Mr. Fullerton, Mr. Boyer, and Mr. Arias for this service. Also a very special thank you to Tom Madeyski who did a great job announcing the football game and half time. The day immediately following the Homecoming parade game and football game was the Midnight Marvel dance, planned ingeniously by Head Dance Commissioner Isabella Copeland. Mrs. Hatch, Mrs. Jimenez, Mrs. Stanley, Mrs. Booth Mrs. Copeland, and Mr. Arias chaperoned the magical night. There were culinary delights galore to be had, from Mrs. Duffy's desserts to Mrs. Hatch's quiche and pretzels, to Mrs. Schuett's meat balls. Mrs. Cantor's family donated two hundred homemade chocolate cupcakes, too.Needless to say, the night was, needless to say, delicious. All in all, the ASB has a lot of work to do but it's much easier with the support of not only the high school staff but the help of the entire community. Thanks for helping make September and October a fun, memorable time for all involved! Remember Their Stories by Livia Lemon Beneath me holds the untold stories over yonder on the hill of the deceased. As I write this, I sit on the earth with the energy underneath. There seem to be fake flowers everywhere, yet none on my one ancestor's grave• Instead, above, to represent, is a rock hardly concave. I wonder what he once was like, or if at all, like me. Did he sing? Or jump? Or fall in love? I'll never get to see. Death is something something we cannot cheat, immortality out of reach. It keeps us sane, although it's pain makes us cry in utter defeat. We all know that when we enter this life, we must depart as well. Yet not everyone gets a tombstone, eulogy; hence death's a hardened shell. You'll never crack the thoughts inside of our beloved ones who have passed. The closest chance we've got to praise is make their stories last. Grandpa, they're are many greats, I do not know them all. Alas, what I can only do is sit by you this somber fall. You were drug by a horse is the knowledge I possess, but besides this tragedy I'm lost. I want to know what defined you; not merely just the cause, of your departure, just like others, is a sentence, not the plot. The sun begins to fall beneath the wispy, wirey trees. The night will quickly overwhelm the sky, my sweater cease the breeze. From 1908-1965, you felt this life's grand wonders. From 1998-2014, I've hardly felt these thunders. I wish you could see this beautiful town, I know that you'd be proud. Since the time you rode in on your horse, these cars now rumble loud. But death is what we all endure, no matter who we are. So I sit upon a hill stories, overlooking near and far. I won't forget this afternoon we've spent, I know for sure. Perhaps another time we'll talk dear Glenn Ray Huntamer.

Our overall wins to losses were 5-13 and our league wins to losses were 3-7. We did better than last year with last year's overall being 2-17 and league's being 2-9. We grew so much from the beginning of the season to the end and have bonded as a family. It was a great last year for me and I plan on coming to watch next year's team play games and grow more. The American Legion Helps Again by Lauren VandewaUe The American Legion blessed the Associated Student Body with providing a breakfast fundraiser on September 21st. $1,035 was raised thanks to some presale tickets and a few very enthusiastic students waving the sign on the corner to bring walk-ins. Without the support and cooking skills of the Sons of the American Legion, the ASB would not have been able to raise so rruch money for t dance and pep rally expenses. A huge thanks to the American Legion once again. An Active Fellowship by Lauren VandewaUe Julian High School's Fellowship of Christian Athletes isn't only active in terms of sports, but it's active in community events as well.

Brothers Blake and Nick Richie have both attended the FCA summer wrestling camp, and David Stringfellow, Cory Flack, Jed Kron, Patrick Vandewalle, and Ethan Elisara have all been to the same camp for soccer. The activities don't slow down once the school year starts, however• A few FCA participants went to a concert to see Phil Joel, former member of the News Boys. The club went to Calvary Chapel's showing of "God's Not Dead" in September and is looking forward to seeing "Facing the Giants" this November. Also, a group of Julian students united with students from across the nation by praying around the flagpole for National Prayer Day's See You at the Pole event on September 24. All in all, the club is thriving and always excited to see new members' faces. Hopefully some Christian athletes will be able to come speak again to all interested. Prayers are being said that this school year is a good one, and they've been answered thus far.
