The World Cup of Hockey is back! Basically, the NHL is trying to make the World Cup of Hockey the replacement for Olympic Hockey because there is a chance that we won’t see NHL players in the Olympics anymore. Continue reading
My name is Ramona Sousa and I am a counselor. I have worked in big schools and little schools, both public and private. But the best part of my job has been working with all the different students, teachers, principals and parents, to help them find solutions.
Bogart: Good evening folks! I’m Bogart D. Richards III and I’m your host. Welcome to the very first ‘Bogart and the Interesting People Show!’ A little later on we’ll have an exclusive interview with hockey veteran Mr. Martin Gélinas. Right now we’re going to read some letters from you, our viewers. Let me just see how many letters we have…. One? Well, I guess that’s not bad for our first show. Maybe next time we’ll have two. Heh, heh. Okay, let’s see what our lucky fan has to say. Ahem:
Congratulations getting your own talk show. I always knew you had it in you. Although now you’re so busy, we don’t get to see you much anymore. Just give us a call once in a while. It wouldn’t hurt you to pick up the phone! P.S. Will you be home for your Dad’s birthday?” Love, Mom
B: Aha, well. That’s our first, uhm, letter. How… interesting. No other letters? Just the one, Quidge?
For all you who don’t know how the plus-minus works, players who are on the ice when their team scores, receive a plus. Players who are on the ice when their team gets scored on, receive a minus. What I don’t understand is how come players who are in the penalty box when their team gets scored, don’t receive a minus? And how come a player who draws a penalty which their team scores on, does not earn a plus? Those players are a key reason why their team scored, or was scored against. Isn’t that what the plus-minus is all about?
“We needed a new sofa so my parents bought a second-hand one that seemed like a good fit. While watching TV later that evening, we heard some scratching noises. My mom thought it was mice. Dad followed the sound and removed a board from the back of the sofa. Continue reading

My name is Genevieve and I’m 10 years old. My dream animal is a horse. I have a friend that I go riding out on trails with. I ride an Appaloosa Draft Horse named Blue, because he has blue eyes. When he’s having a lot of fun he will buck a little. I am not a professional rider, but I can ride western and bareback. My friend rides a Quarter Horse Paint named Brandi.
When we are going for a ride, we first brush the horses and then saddle them up. We make sure the girth is tight enough and that we have the chin strap on. Then we clean their feet, being very careful not to cut out their frog. Then we stretch them by grabbing their hooves and pulling them forward. We get our friend to give us a foot-up on our horses. We get them ready for their big ride by trotting around in the corral to warm them up. Then we go trail-riding. Continue reading
Really, what is caring? What is inside us that makes us want to care or feel a way towards someone or something? Caring means a lot of things to a lot of different people. To me, caring is a necessity in life and can not be bargained by one. Caring requires presence and attention. Continue reading

“Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong.”
This saying by Francesa Peicler, describes the book titled Holes, and how people aren’t afraid to show attitude or do or say what they feel. This is demonstrated by Zero listening to everyone calling him stupid. Out of no where, he shows attitude and strikes Mr. Pendanski on the side of the head and runs away into the large wasteland. Everyone shows attitude once in a while, sometimes it’s because people mistreat you or your friend.
Kind of like Stanley’s situation when he got angry because everyone made Zero run away. Stanley took charge by stealing Mr. Sir’s water truck to go find Zero. Louis Sachar demonstrated that some people control how they feel by deciding what they let bother them. Review by Carissa, Age 12 Continue reading
