From JabbaWokeez.comBy Carmen Shiu, Courier Special Correspondent
Winning the majority of the 38 million votes cast, West Coast's JabbaWockeeZ was crowned the winner of MTV's newest hit interactive reality game series, last week against East Coast's Status Quo.
Though Status fans may have had hope, it had to be minimal as Jabba have always had high praises from the judges and boasted a huge fanbase.
It was announced two weeks ago that Jabba and Status were going to be in the finale. By a "razor sharp" number of votes, Status was voted as the No. 1 crew that week, leaving Jabba and West Coast's Kaba Modern to face elimination.

The New Haven Unified School District and the New Haven Teachers Association announced today that a tentative agreement has been reached on a three-year contract, through June 2011.
District Superintendent Dr. Pat Jaurequi and NHTA President Charmaine Kawaguchi jointly announced the agreement, which was reached after only five days of bargaining, a sharp contrast from the previous round of negotiations. In 2005, the two sides narrowly averted a strike.

Student forums have been going on for about five years now at James Logan, though they have stopped recently and some are questioning if they are worth the time they take out of the school day.
Efren Gonsalez, a junior, said he thinks that the student forums are stupid because they make the students waste their time answering questions that they never see the results of. He said he does not think that enough people take them seriously because they don’t enjoy the forums. With the repetitive questions being asked to the students, there seems to be nothing but foolish answers that will not really help anything. Gonsalez believes that if there were better questions asked that interest the students the forums would become more productive rather than a waste of time.

As seniors wander the halls in our last months at Logan, we are constantly bombarded with questions about what we’re going to do with our lives. “College, of course,” we reply nonchalantly, but as we smile and nod at the encouraging words, we wonder if we actually are going to go to college.
Air Force recruiters visiting Logan this week have an alternative.
“Often times when I ask students who stop by about their plans for the future, the generic ‘college’ answer pops up” says Staff Sergeant Charles Davis of the Air Force.

The American Red Cross will again ask James Logan students to give the gift of life by donating their blood.
Twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring, the organization sets up shop, usually in the Alfonso Roderigues Gymnasium to draw blood from students. Their spring visit this year will be April 9.
Participants are taken out of their classes for a short amount of time to donate blood.

Edward Everett Hale
(April 3, 1822 – June 10, 1909) was an American author and Unitarian clergyman.
Hale was born in Roxbury, Massachusetts, the son of Nathan Hale (1784-1863), proprietor and editor of the Boston Daily Advertiser, and the brother of Lucretia Peabody Hale. Edward Hale was the nephew of Edward Everett, the orator and statesman, while his father was the nephew of the Nathan Hale who was executed by the British for espionage during the Revolutionary War. Edward Hale graduated from Harvard in 1839; was pastor of the Church of the Unity, Worcester, Massachusetts, in 1846-1856, and of the South Congregational (Unitarian) church, Boston, in 1856-1899. In 1903 he became chaplain of the United States Senate. Hale married Emily Baldwin Perkins in 1852—she was the niece of Connecticut Governor & US Senator Roger Sherman Baldwin and Emily Pitkin Perkins Baldwin on her father's side and Harriet Beecher Stowe and Henry Ward Beecher on her mother's side. They had eight children; one of his grandsons was the actor Edward Everett Horton. Hale died in Roxbury, by then part of Boston, in 1909.
