A Pot O’ Gold at Friendly Inn Settlement

“Are leprechauns real?” a curious second-grader asked me as I strolled around the St. Patrick’s Day-themed Family Night at Friendly Inn Settlement on March 12. The holiday-themed event culminated the Healthy Kids, Healthy Communities program taught by Mallory Salvi, an AmeriCorps member at Children’s Hunger Alliance. The curriculum combines 12 hands-on nutrition education — or Food Folks — lessons, in conjunction with 20 hourlong moderate to vigorous physical.

Get Ready for Summer Basketball!

James Reid had the opportunity last summer to stand back and watch what was once just an idea in his head become reality. The last day of the eight-week double elimination Glenville Summer Basketball Tournament was coming to a close, trophies and medals were given and children softened their faces with proud smiles.

Teen Student Interviews County Medical Examiner

For some time now, I’ve wanted to be a medical examiner. I guess all those crime scene investigation TV shows, like "Criminal Minds," got to me. When I told my mother about my latest career choice, she went digging through the Web for summer programs, internships — whatever. That is when she came across the High School Shadowing Program. The program is coordinated by the medical examiner.

Local drill team encourages focus and precision

As I approached the church doors at Mt. Sinai Baptist Church on Woodland Avenue, I heard deep thunders of unified stomps and shattering claps responding to a voice of strength guiding the bodily music. I had no idea where I was going initially, however, I just followed the sounds of ancient times — stomps and claps. When I finally turned the corner into the room, there.

Conference for Teens this Month

I remember my English teacher in high school putting down the text book with her head following suit. “Class, let’s chat for a minute,” she said somberly. At that very moment, she became a mother and not an English teacher. I witnessed probably the most emotionally charged and relevant lecture since Sept. 11, 2001. I took in every word she said to use if I ever was.
