I really liked the subject because we learn about machines, there inventors and the reason why they impacted the United States. Another reason why I liked the subject was because I love social Studies and learning about the Presi- dents and important people in History. One of the machines that we learned about was the Telegraph made by Samuel Morse and that it impacted the United States by making it Easier and Quicker to Communicate with people acroos the country. We also learned about Samuel Slater who had and made the first factory in the United States. There is many more but the last Important one was the Cotton Gin made by Eli Whitney and impacted the United States by making it easier to seperate the Cotton from the seeds. I think that its impportant that people know about the Industrail Revolution because this is what changed the United States completely and this is the stuff that makes it easier to live today. Hope of Tomorrow Black Registry Final Exams The MLK March Lanette Demps Del Valle High School I am so happy we are FINALLY DONE with our finals . Studying for all classes finals was a The Weekend The MLK March Jarian Galloway Harmony Academy This past Monday, January 19th, the people of Austin and other cities, showed their support of Martin Luther King, Jr. by walking 3 miles. The route went from the MLK Jr. statue on the campus of UT to the campus of Huston-Tillotson University. While the program started earlier and the walk was longer than usual, those of us who participated had a nice time associating with other people in the community. Many programs and companies promoted their companies and made their debut. I don’t know about other people of Austin, but me being less physically conditioned than I used to be, I am still slightly sore. Kevin Parish Park Crest M.S.

On Friday, January 23, the world famous Harlem Globetrotters came to the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. The arena was full people of all ages. Before tipoff, children were wearing their Globetrotters jerseys and asking their parents when the game would start. When the Globetrotters finally came onto the court, the stadium screamed with excitement. The Harlem Globetrotters have been around for 89 years. When the franchise was established in 1926, the team was gether Saturday afternoon. When we were half way done with my basketball goal I went to my best friend’s house. All we did there was play video games. There is this one game that we played; it is called football basketball. In this game you can tackle your opponent so they won’t get the point, it was pretty fun. Last week we lost our basketball game against Forbes Middle School but I’m pretty sure we can win the next game against Benold Middle School. Go Pumas! Ann Richards Open House Harlem Globetrotters composed of all AfricanAmerican men. The tradition went on until 1985 when Lynette Woodard became the first woman to play with the Globetrotters. After Woodard, nine other women have played with the Globetrotters, including the current player, “Ttime” Brawner. The Harlem Globetrotters are known for their crazy shots, outrageous dunks, and their “Magic Circle” warm-up routine. But the Globetrotters are also known for their nicknames, which are based off of the player ’s personality or physical features. A few examples are Hi-Lite, Cheese, Ant, Hammer, and not to mention Big Easy. The Harlem Globetrotters have inspired millions of people around the world and are striving to entertain all ages every time they play. I enjoyed watching them play as a basketball fan and as a young African-American man. struggle but i managed to do it and i passed all my finals except Spanish. I was so close to passing but i guess i didn’t study hard enough. I have worked too hard to just stop where i am now. I am going to continue to study for Spanish so i can succeed on my next final . I believe if i didnt take the time out of my day to study i wouldn’t have passed, So i am happy i was being lazy and i decided to study . Trust studying will help you. SaNaya White Cedars Int’l Academy Saturday morning 8:00am, my mom and I woke up, ate breakfast, dressed and went to the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders. Once we arrived at the school we went in to the cafeteria were Principal Goka talked about the school and some of the girls who attended it. While Principal Goka talked to the parents a counselor took us into the library and she helped us start writing our admission letters. I saw a friend of mine who went to my school a year ago. We joined together to take a tour of the school and I loved it. There was theatre class which I want to join, there was band, P.E, biomedical study, and a lot of sports. I went in the biomedical room and I got to hold a pig’s heart. There was also a cat, pig brain, and cow eyes! It was nasty but to be a veterinarian I have to study it. Once we were done taking the tour. We got in the car and I began to write. I hope I get in to this school it’s awesome! Averill Topps O. Henry Middle School The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) march is a event where people of all races come together and have a walk to honor MLK. At the march people talked about how important education is. Then the Austin Area Heritage Council started it. At the end of the march people had food and entertainment for your participation in the march. Dr. Martin Luther King was an American pacifist, activist, humanitarian, and the leader of the Civil Rights Movement. Martin Luther King led the Montgomery Bus Boycott. He is most famous for his “I Have A Dream” speech that he made during the March on Washington on August 28, 1963. It was a rally for jobs and freedom. On October 14 Martin Luther King won the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968, during his Poor Peoples Campaign by a deranged person. This is what I learned form the march and from studying. I now know why we take place in this march every single year. Well, that’s all for today. Until next time... Go O.Henry Mustangs!! MLK Aubri Allen-Brent Del Valle High School Martin Luther king was a Baptist and social activist who led the civil rights movement in the United States from the mid-1950s through his death by an as- sassination. Martin Luther’s name was originally Michael. Martin’s father was named Michael king. Martin Luther King Day celebrates the life and legacy of a man who brought hope and healing to America. Martin Luther king marched for his rights. In the movie Selma martin was treated really badly and so where black people. The movie Selma made be thankful for what I have & all the freedoms I have. If It wasn’t for Mr. King a lot of things would be different. Until next time Goo Cards!! I Passed Imani Demps Del Valle High School I passed my first semester of my senior year.
