The James Logan Cross Country team is starting the year off right.
Last Saturday the team went to Hayward High for the annual Farmer’s Invitational. This meet was the first invitational for the team, and the team was able to deliver. Although the day started off with drizzling rain and gray clouds, the team was able to keep their focus.
This meet was difficult for sophomore Tom Hu because this was his first run ever in Varsity. When asked how he was feeling before the race began he said, “I feel nervous, really nervous.”

In the music of the Dirty Tongues
, underground Hip-hop meets high school angst. Sound familiar? Now add a few tongue and cheek lyrics and a passion for the art of rap and you’ve just started to scratch the surface of the boys of DT (Dirty Tongues).
A generally Logan-based group, the DTs members have adopted the monikers Nasty Neeeks, RayLove, Two Propa, Mysta.E, Optik and Mad Cleva. These boys captivate their audience with infectious beats and their harsh yet sensitive lyrics show that there is more than meets the eyes.

Eric Eustace Williams
(September 25, 1911 – March 29, 1981) was the first Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago. He served from 1956 until his death in 1981. He was also a noted Caribbean historian.
Williams was born the son of minor civil servant, but his mother was a descendant of the French Creole elite. He was educated at Queen's Royal College in Port of Spain, where he excelled at academics and football. He won an island scholarship in 1932 which allowed him to attend Oxford University where he received his doctorate in 1938. Williams was in part inspired by C.L.R. James and his doctoral thesis, titled The Economic Aspect of the West Indian Slave Trade and Slavery
, owed much to the influence of James's The Black Jacobins
