Montero, and Christian Foster relaxed during
the first lunch of their last year at Logan.
The first day of school for about 4,000 Logan students and their teachers got underway with few problems, according to reports.
"So far, so good," said Campus Security Technician Molly Rudnick. It's been "much smoother than last year."
After last year's difficult school opening, this year's debut has "been going well, better than last year," said Rhonda Neagle, Logan's Vice Principal of Operations. For an example, she said about "3,950 students have already had their ID pictures taken," she said. Last year, only around 3,700 had gotten pictures.
"This year's opening was easier to me," said junior Asma Malakzay.

"Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters"
By Tish Wells
McClatchy Newspapers (MCT)
by Jane Austen and Ben H. Masters;
Quirk Books, Philadelphia
(344 pages, $12.95)
"Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters" is a hoot, but Jane Austen purists will shudder.
Ben H. Masters, playwright and author, has created an amusing mash-up of Jane Austin's classic novel using Jules Verne's fantasy, Robert Louis Stevenson's adventures, the eldritch horror of H.P. Lovecraft, and extensive use of a thesaurus.
Austen's original "Sense and Sensibility" covers two years in the life of the three Dashwood daughters — mostly the elder two, Elinor and Marianne — as they fall in and out of love, according to the rigid social strictures of the 19th century English Regency period. Survival dominates "Sea Monsters" where every fish lusts for human blood.

(September 2, 1911 – March 12, 1988) was an American artist and writer. He worked in several media including cartoons, oils, and collage.
Bearden was born in Charlotte, North Carolina. He attended De Witt Clinton High School in the Bronx and completed his studies at New York University (NYU), graduating with a degree in science and education. His education was interrupted by stretches of time he spent as a professional baseball player in the Negro Leagues. Bearden took extensive courses in art and was a lead cartoonist and then art editor for the Eucleian Society monthly journal The Medley. Bearden had wide-ranging interests and abilities. He wrote and published articles on numerous topics and created political cartoons. He designed costumes and sets for prominent dance and theater companies, illustrated books by influential authors, co-wrote books about African American art and culture and composed songs. He was also offered an opportunity to play professional baseball for the Philadelphia Athletics, if he would agree to “pass as white”—an offer he refused.
