A New Day Rising by Justin Bertolero

With new uniforms, a new sound and new players, you can tell the Liverpool High School Marching Band will be a fierce competitor. The band has a new show entitled New Day Rising. It was dedicated to Bruce McCready, a beloved staff member and mentor who has recently passed away. They have also purchased new uniforms. After ten years of wearing the old uniforms you could tell they were in desperate need of new ones. The band is led onto the field by drum majors Christina Mevec and Nick O’Hara. The marching band also has 43 new members this season. Most of which are eighth and ninth graders. From their first show of the season at East Syracuse Minoa High School all the way to the New York State Field Band Championship at the Carrier Dome on November first, the warriors have been fighting. At the championships the warriors placed 4th out of ten field bands. They scored a well respected score of 93.95. Good luck to the band in the future. And it certainly has been a new day rising.

2012 The End of Civilization by Marc Alessi 


Many people have asked the question themselves… Will 2012 really be the end of Human Kind? Most scientists from around the world do not believe in the 2012 theory. But signs that it will happen come from two different time eras. The first people that “predicted” the 2012 theory is the ancient civilization of the Mayans. This ancient civilization had a very accurate calendar and it just seems to end on the date of 12.21.2012. Coincidence? Also a recent discovery in the 1960’s shows a plaque that was from the civilization that says the exact date 12.21.2012. Spooky Coincidence? Many scientists believe the calendar just ends on this date because the calendar goes on a 394 year period cycle called Baktuns. It starts in 3,114 B.C. and the thirteenth Baktun is in 2012. The thirteenth Baktun is significant because the number thirteen was just a sacred number for the Mayans. Scientists believe the plaque was built just to show the future anniversary of the 13th baktun. But oddly, there is another person, closer to our time that is predicting the 2012 massacre. Prophet Nostradamus (1503-1566) actually is predicting the 2012 theory to come true. Nostradamus has predicted very accurately in the past. In fact, some say he predicted the chaos of 9/11. So, who knows what will really happen in 2012, we’ll just have to wait!

Enchanted Beaver Lake

Did You Know?

by Marissa Rodriguez

Thanksgiving Facts

This year, like many other years, Beaver Lake Nature Center has held their annual Halloween celebration. The very popular Enchanted Beaver Lake took place Thursday, October 22nd through Sunday, October 25th. They fill their trails with amazing jacko-lanterns lighting the way. This event took place from 6:00 to 8:30 each night. You can walk the trails and stop inside for hotdogs, donuts, caramel apples, popcorn, and cider. You can get a cool face painting, get your fortune told, or even see a magic show. There is also storytelling. This year MaxMan Reptile Rescue and KrittrKris came to Beaver Lake. MaxMan is a group that does just what it sounds like….rescues reptiles! This year they brought their reptiles in and did a great show. KrittrKris is a group that came in to show off their great raptors and their owls. I went to the Enchanted Beaver Lake and had a great time. You should try it out next year. You can look online or check in magazines or newspapers to find out other cool things going on at Beaver Lake Nature Center.

Did
you
know
that
the
Pilgrims
 trip
 to
 the
 New
 World
 aboard
 the
 Mayflower
 lasted
 65
 days?
 It
was
a
cold
and
damp
journey,
 and
since
the
ship
was
wooden,
 passengers
were
not
allowed
to
 light
 a
 fire
 for
 warmth
 or
 for
 cooking
their
food.
 Did
you
know
that
the
first
 Thanksgiving
took
place
in
 December
1621,
when
the
 Pilgrims
held
a
three‐day
feast
 in
Plymouth
Rock,
 Massachusetts
to
celebrate
 their
bountiful
harvest?
 
 Did
you
know
that
 Thanksgiving
didn't
become
an
 official
national
holiday
until
 more
than
200
years
later,
 when
in
1863
President
Lincoln
 proclaimed
the
last
Thursday
of
 November
a
national
day
of
 thanksgiving?
 
 Did
you
know
that
as
many
107
 million
American
homes
will
 celebrate
Thanksgiving
this
 year?
 
 Did you know that Black Friday - the day after Thanksgiving, which is widely touted as the biggest Christmas shopping day in America -- is actually not the biggest shopping day? In fact, the Saturday before Christmas has historically been the largest volume shopping day. Black Thursday ranks anywhere from second to fifth in Christmas shopping days.
