Elyria High Schools Students Against Bullying club would like to thank all of the students, staff, parents, and others who came out to Applebees last Wednesday night and supported us in our Dining to Donate fundraiser. We even had students who aren’t members of the group supporting us, which was very much appreciated.
To find out how you can get involved with the Students Against Bullying club come to one of our meetings, or talk to Mrs. Biltz in the Students Against Bullying office on the third floor of the Washington Building.
Just last Thursday, Typhoon Yolanda struck the Philppines, causing widespead destruction to lives and property.
According to this map from Daily Postal, Yolanda slammed into the vast majority of the Philippine Islands with the eye of the storm at northern Visayas (Visayas is the cluster of islands in central Philippines). By then it was categorized as a Category 5 storm which has winds over 156mph. Most, if not all conventional houses break easily in these winds. By the time it reached Vietnam, Yolanda weakened to a Category 3 storm, whose wind speed ranges from 111-130 mph, according to hypertextbook.
Bringing relief to the survivors of the storm will be difficult because there are over 7000 islands that make up the Philippines.
Congragulations to Elyria City Schools for passing Issue 31 on Nov 5.
Students and staff members alike have been working hard for two years in order to pass what was Issue 38 last year and Issue 31 this year. In order to promote the issue, Elyria Schools students and staff have taken manners into their own hands and gotten involved by going door to door, wearing support stickers, posting yard signs, writing editorial letters to the Chronicle, and speaking about the issue at various school events.
Thanks to the passing of this levy, various programs that Elyria Schools offer are now safe! Look for another renewel levy in the spring. Once again, congragulations and thank you, Elyria!!
We have all seen the girls on halloween with the extreme mini skirts and the tops showing off way to much cleavage and I’m sure the guys love them, but what about everyone else?
Alot of people like to refer to these girls as “whores” and probably 50% of the time they aren’t completly wrong with their description, but I personally don’t agree with labeling any girl in a short skirt on Halloween a whore.
First of all alot of the girls you look at and immediately judge on what costume their wearing is far off from what they normally dress like and more importantly how they really are. The girl you look and snicker at on Halloween could be a straight A student in college or volunteering at your local nursing home, you don’t know.
Second of all these girls dressing up on Halloween probably don’t dress like that everday and are most likely really nice, decent people.
Third of all, have you seen the costumes they sell for girls? It is almost impossible to find a nice costume for a girl that doesn’t make you look like a complete slut, that isn’t for five year olds.
So stop judging girls on what they wear on Halloween! It’s one of the worst ways to judge a person and really it’s just plain mean.
A Mississippi born baby may have doctors looking at how HIV should be treated. Infected in the womb, doctors were skeptical to the fact that the child ever had HIV. But in fact, she was infected with the virus. At the age of 3 she ha been off of AIDS medicines for 18 months, and shows no signs of active infaction.
Doctors are calling it a remission because they are not sure if she is absolutely free of the virus, or if she will rebound. There is no definition for a cured case of HIV, but she is definitely in a remission. Government sponsered studies starting in January will test early treatments in infants born with the virus.
With no immune mechanism that can be identified to keep the virus in check, the baby may have a new genetic trait that helps her manage the virus. The Mississippi case has opened eyes and may save children from a lifetime of therapy.
