In what used to be a residential neighborhood in the nineteenth century, the dig targeted the area in hopes of finding the foundation of a residence, as well as artifacts that would give not only insight into life during this time, but also of the progression from the residential area into today’s SC4 campus. “Part of my goal is to not only find out data about the college’s past, but to also do some

archeology and our local history. Both SC4 students and the public were welcome to attend and participate. “One of the things that archeology is trying to get at is to study the lives of people who came before us, and so that makes it a very mutual thing,” said

Richardson. Multiple items were found, among them being a pipe, coal fragments, a toy matchbox motorcycle that was only produced in 1960, pieces of brick and mortar, brown bottle glass, and ceramics with transfer printing that date back to the late

nineteenth century. “The cemetery’s across Glenwood. We won’t find a body here,” said Richardson. For information on future digs, you can contact Professor Richardson at rrichardson @sc4. edu or on his office phone at (810) 989-

Acceptance. How many people know the meaning of this word? How many people actually practice the act of this word? That is the message the members of the Gay-Straight Alliance Club are attempting to spread on the campus of Saint Clair County Community College. Knowing how hard it is to find somewhere where people are accepting of others sexual orientations or gender identities, the Gay-Straight Alliance are working on creating a safe place where people can go for help, support and knowledge of the lesbian, bisexual, gay, and transgender (also

known as LGBT) community. Gay-Straight Alliance meets on the first, third, and when applicable, the fifth Monday of every month between noon and 2 p.m. Their main goals are to educate, raise awareness of the issues the LGBT community faces, and to have fun at the same time. They have many events in the works for the near future, though nothing is set in stone yet. These include a movie viewing that interacts with Native American Month, a free HIV testing for World Aids Day, and they are working on putting together a second drag show. Their first drag show raised over

$7000 dollars for the Ruth Ellis Center in Ferndale, and they are hoping to match that, or raise more, this year. A major accomplishment for the Gay-Straight Alliance this year was becoming the Dodgeball Champions in the All-Club Dodgeball tournament

held earlier this semester. When asked how it felt to have won this title, GayStraight Alliance Club President Sean Lathrop stated, “It feels great. August Smith, Ryan Silver, Thomas Rose-Grey, and myself worked hard that day to get the title and we

Community

Where do you go, when you have nothing at all?

Rachel Kobylas Staff Writer

“Reality is, that most of us are only a paycheck away from homelessness,” said Heather Bearden, Lead Housing Resource Specialist and cochair of the Homeless Awareness Week in St. Clair County. Nov. 12 through Nov. 20 is National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week. Drives, demonstrations and events will be taking place all over the country. The city of Port Huron is no exception to the upcoming annual events. Starting Nov. 12, Pathway Shelter, located at 511 Union

St in Port Huron, is holding a basic needs drive. Food, toiletries, clothing and “anything you feel would be useful to homeless individuals and families,” according to the event flyer. These items may be dropped off at Pathway or at the location of the events during the week. Wednesday, Nov. 16, the “I Care Walk” will be meeting at Pathway, marching through downtown Port Huron to the Municipal Office Building at 100 McMorran Blvd, where there will be a Speak Out at 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18 at 1 p.m. until Saturday, Nov. 19 at 9 a.m. is an annual Sleep Out at Pine Grove Park.

There will be food and beverages available. Bon fires, music and other entertainment will be available on site. It is suggested to dress warmly for this event and participants may bring their tents. “All events are free and open to the public. All ages are welcome, the more the merrier,” said Bearden. These collaborative community events are meant to eliminate the stigma of homelessness and educate the community. “Each year 3.5 million Americans experience homelessness,” according to the National Coalition for the Homeless, http://www.

nationalhomeless. org. “The homeless population is composed of people from all walks of life, it doesn’t discriminate. It affects people of all ages,” said Bearden, “We need to get

the word out there. Homelessness affects everyone and at any given moment any one of us could be in those shoes.” For further information regarding the drive and events,

Meet the candidates Christina Stoutenburg Staff Writer On Nov. 3, Port Huron residents will get to take place in a first. The mayor and city council will be elected separately. There are 15 candidates total, three vying for mayor and 12 candidates for the six city council seats, with the mayor being elected for a two-year term and the council being elected for a four or two-year term. The three candidates with the highest votes will be on for four years, while the others will serve as council members for two years. Running for mayor are Garth Gurnsey, John M. Moldowan, and Port Huron’s current Mayor, Pauline Repp. Council candidates are: current incumbents Sherry Archibald, Alan Lewandowski, Brian Moeller, and Domingo Ruiz and Alphonso Amos, Richard Brettin, David Castillo, Rachel Cole, Thomas Grambau, Kenneth Harris, Timothy Keller, Jeremy Ruiz. All but four council candidates- Brettin, Grambau, J. Ruiz

and Keller who was recovering from a heart attack- were present at a forum held Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2011. Some of the handful of topics mentioned included water rates, income tax and the consistent mention of small business. Moldowan, who is a small business owner himself, mentioned in a number of questions taking care of small businesses in order to improve Port Huron, and numerous other candidates covered the issue of blight in their opening and closing statements. With the issues of blight it was also mentioned that renters would be faced with having to take care of blight on property that they occupy instead of the property owners. Income tax was discussed, but also mentioned that any changes would have to go through the state in order for any changes to take place, and that a water rate increase would most likely have to take place in order to help our bond rating according to Lewandowski. Moeller, the self proclaimed no vote on the current council, stated that he would not vote for a water increase with candidates Amos and Moldowan agreeing.

Welcoming the “New Girl”

Meghan Grady Staff Writer The start of this fall’s 2011 line-up consists of your usual twelve police/mystery shows that all possess a similar appearance to “CSI.” On Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m., one of the top ten anticipated shows for this year stars the “adorkable,” Zooey Deschanel, which blew past all ratings projections to open with a big 4.8/12 in adults 1849, 10.3 million viewers overall, and had topped the night for the first time in a decade for FOX. Deschanel plays Jess in the new comedy, “New Girl,” that premiered its pilot on Sept. 20th, 2011. As Jess tries to surprise her livein boyfriend, she discovers a surprise of her own: Rochelle. Shortly thereafter, she answers a craigslist ad for a roommate with three male roommates, eventually becoming a sort of family audiences everywhere can relate to. The three roommates also possess very contrasting personas from each other, but are also cleverly

created for helping Jess understand men and forming good relationships with them. She in turn teaches them how to better relate to women. Coach is the macho man, Nick is sensitive and understanding, and Schmidt is vain and insecure. What does seem to be relatively obvious is the sexual tension drawn from Nick and Jess, and what seems to possibly leading to a relationship, most likely two seasons away. As the show moves on each week, the episodes highlight the best attributes of Jess that seemed to have been cloned by the real-life Deschanel. These include her quirky and refreshing humor, and yes, even her homemade written theme song. All in all, the pilot was well done with room to grow for a fantastic series. Kudos to the show’s writer, Liz Meriwether, for the brilliant decision to build a show around Deschanel’s character that will bring the success that FOX is much overdue for.
