The reason given is that textbooks can be quickly converted into cash, especially at the end of a semester when returned books can be easily converted to their current cash value. Unlike most stolen property, which is converted to a cash value much less than actual value, the web site said textbooks can be taken back to a college bookstore for a full refund under certain circumstances. According to the SC4 campus bookstore manager, Amanda Beliveau, shelving units are provided for students to store personal items while in store shopping on campus.

One obvious cause of this increase is the drooping local economy and the constant increase in gas prices. The transit system has even helped promote the annual National Dump the Pump day where for some, only public transit systems will be used. Another cause is the transit’s systems

and even offers diala-ride service in Fort Gratiot, Burtchville and Port Huron Township. According to American Public Transportation Association, this replacement of self-driven vehicles is saving riders a significant $819 a month. The American

Public Transportation Association’s President, William Millar, states that investing more in public transportation will better prepare them for the larger demand now, and what will occur when the recession ends. For instance, the federal State of Good Repair Program awarded

BWAT a $6.86 million grant for a proposed transit hub. It was also among 300 competitive discretionary grants totaling more than $900 million to rebuild and renovate America’s transit infrastructure. Specifically, $46.7 million was awarded to Michigan transit agencies.

According to FTA, these grants will “put people to work by building needed transit facilities and by putting more cleanfuel buses on the road.” This providing many economic favorable changes is a start in the right direction that many residents have been patiently longing for.

Sports

Expanding horizons Christian McGeachy Sports Editor To a lot of dedicated SC4 sports fans, it’s hard to go to every sporting event that one desires. Jobs to work, children to take care or just overwhelmed with classes and homework. Especially when the Skippers are on the road, many students and fans could be wondering, “Who won

the game? What’s the team’s record? And who’s leading the team in assists, turnovers or points?” Let me provide all the sports fans of St. Clair County Community College with a couple suggestions to succeed in keeping up with the sports. In my discoveries on the internet, I stumbled upon a very useful web site. At www.

njcaa .org, anyone can follow all sports at the junior college level. NJCAA is the abbreviation for the National Junior College Athletic Association. At their website, anyone can access bundles of information on many sports at the junior college level. Sports for St. Clair County Community College are available, among hundreds of

other junior colleges in the United States. At the NJCAA website, you can search by region, sport, division and also access the player stats on the sports teams. So if you missed any of the volleyball season at SC4 and wanted to know what happened this year, by using the NJCAA website, a sports fan can figure out the volleyball teams

overall standings, stats and more. Another way to find out where the next game is, or the scores from previous games can also be found on SC4’s website. Simply by going to the homepage, selecting “Current Student” and going to Student Connection newsletter, you can see the scores of the games and who the Skippers versed. Just go to www.sc4 .edu.

Last, but not least, anyone can access the Erie Square Gazette on the internet by going to www. esgonline. org and going to the sports tab, to read all the articles and columns you have missed or liked from previous issues. So, anyone at anytime can access that stats they need to keep informed on the SC4 athletics even when life catches up with you.

In fact, Vos added “That’s the worst defense in individual game we’ve played in at least four years.” SC4’s next home game will be on Tuesday, Nov. at 7:30 p.m. against Owens Community College. Looks like the SC4 men’s basketball team will be working on defense before their next game. Latwann Wesley (#4) slam dunks towards 18 points and SC4’s first win of the season.

Opinion

Fake a homemade Thanksgiving dinner Christina Stoutenburg Staff Writer It’s Thanksgiving morning and you wake up before your alarm. Or so you thought, before rolling over and seeing that now you only have a few rushed hours to have a Thanksgiving dinner ready before your parents arrive or the kids start complaining. Never fear it is possible with a few easy tricks, and it will taste like you made everything from scratch. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, grab yourself a turkey breast- this can be found at any supermarket- and rub

it down with some french onion soup mix, making sure to get under the skin as well. Next, wrap the turkey breast in some aluminum foil, stick in a roasting pan and bake for about 20 minutes per pound or until it reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Then it’s on to your sides. Packages of french fried onions often have a recipe for green bean casserole that can be cooked at the same temperature as your turkey and completed in about 40 minutes. Potatoes are easy to fake. Just use instant mashed potatoes, and instead of using water or milk, substitute chicken broth for a

delicious change. To help improve your canned gravy, add a pinch of poultry seasoning and some of the drippings from your turkey. Store stuffing can be easily doctored by adding a cup of raisins and replacing the liquid with apple juice. Dinner is just about done, all that’s needed now is to slice your canned cranberry jelly and cook-up some freezer vegetables. Canned can be used as well, but frozen vegetables commonly have more color to them. Lastly, have your guest supply dessert, or even grab a pie from your local grocery bakery.

With their multiple “Dog Days” programs, free tours, I highly suggest looking into Kettering for any math or science based degree pathways.

Entertainment

TV comes back to life Zack Penzien Production Editor These past two years TV has drove me away. Now I watch very little TV at all, and when I do it’s kind of an event for me. The two shows I watch now are “Doctor Who” and the “Walking Dead,” this is an article about the latter. The show is based off a comic book and it follows Rick Grimes, a local sheriff that is put into a coma after a gun fight. He awakens to a world now in chaos after a nonspecific time. Grimes seeks to find his family in this new, terrifying world. And what stands between Grimes and his family? A ton of zombies. It’s not a spoiler that Grimes finds his family and best friend/ partner, with a small group of survivors. The group isn’t the best core sample of humanity to

start, but seeing these people respond to events and develop is what makes the show great. What’s that? Not convinced by the above plot synopsis? Did I mention this show is from Frank Darabont, director of “The Shawshank Redemption,” and Gaile Anne, producer of “The Terminator” and “Aliens.” Come on! What more do you want? I feel I must repeat that this is, at its heart (or brain) a zombie

flick, so there is gore, but I still think even the squeamish should give it a try. My mom hates horror flicks and the gore that comes with zombies, but I get a call every Sunday asking if I coming to Sundays at 9 to watch…on amc. I think this has appeal outside of its normal audience because this is a deeply character driven show. You feel for the characters as they come to grips with the new horrifying world.
