Page 8 February 14th, 2013 Valley News & Views The Adventures on Reading Island Continue Welcome back to the Laiken and Taylor Column! The girls' basketball is winding to down to an end. On Tuesday, February fifth the girls had a game in North Border. The seventh grade won 47-16, the eighth grade lost 22-47, the W lost 29-45, and the Varsity won 52 -37. At the end of the semester, the seventh grade stopped taking Phy Ed and Keyboarding and started Health and Life Skills. On February eighth the seventh graders made their first dish: Veggie pizza. It was a simplier dish, but requiring many of the skills needed for cooking: chopping, mixing, and oven use. It was fun[ Reading month is already half over! This year's theme is "Lost on Reading Island". The kids love it. For reading month their goal is for every kid to read at least 100 minutes every week or have their parents read to them to get some extra points, and if they read 200 minutes they get even more points! Each class gets points for reading, dressing up according to the special Reading Month calendar, and answering trivia questions. The class that has the most points at the end of the month gets a parW! Mrs. Lee is the coordinator of all of the reading month activities and puts a lot of work into it. Junior high and junior varsity boys' basketball is over now. Varsity has the district tournament this weekend and if they do well theywill advance to regionals but if they don't do well they will be done also. During science, the seventh grade class got to go outside and throw hot water into the air. It was so cold, it evaporated before hitting the ground! They also got to blow bubbles, and when the bubbles landed on the ground, they froze. Lifetouch pictures are on February twenty-first. Make sure the kids smile bigI Thanks for reading our column, you can email us at laikentaylor.column@gmail. com and have a great week! A Lesson On Main Street I'm sure that a few of those folks will eventually pass through here because of it. I'd bet on it. Finally, what helps the restaurant, or other local businesses, helps us all. Customers keep Kip up and running and putting out good chow for them and us, while providing jobs for locals and serving as a beacon to bring in more visitors. As a community, we need outsiders and outside money to strengthen our economy. We should all be boosters. Now, I might have done the other thing and sped by after tailgating them a little, while cussing them and letting them fend for themselves. Somehow making sure they knew I was irritated with them. If they found the restaurant, no matter how good the food was, it probably wouldn't Continued have been near as good as it would have been without the bad experience. Of course they would later go tell their friends and acquaintances what a bad time they had in Drayton, what an unfriendly town it was and why no one should ever go there. A negative Butterfly Effect, with one person causing enough misery on Main Street to turn away ten's or even hundreds from the community over time. Uff-da, lesson learned. As a small town that could use an economic boost, we need all the outside trade we can get. Just forming the habit as a community of treating people decently, which is how we should treat each other anyway, will eventually lead to a reputation of being a friendly town. Visitors are drawn to friendly towns. Simple, easy and effective. Makes us feel good and pays February Spring is Just Around the Corner S 00ecials St. Thomas Public Sch601 Lunch Menu: ':!
