For those of you who do not know, Credit Recovery is a program that was created to help bring aid to those high school seniors who have fallen short on the number of credits they need to graduate from high school.
Unfortunately, this program is no longer available on the James Logan Campus.
Why is this so?
According Jessica Lange, the Intervention Specialist of Credit Recovery here at Logan, “We are unable to fund it with all the budget cuts. But it is available through the adult school at both Cabello and Decoto sites.”

Valentine’s Day is less than a week away. It is a day that convenience stores use to their advantage creating an aisle or two dedicated to the lovely holiday.
Whether or not you’re looking forward to the special day or roll your eyes at the commercial holiday, here are some gifts that you definitely do not want to give to your special someone.
Let’s start off with candy. Sweethearts – the heart shaped candies with little phrases imprinted on top such as “Be Mine” or “Kiss Me” are not the most romantic gift. They are only filled with sugar and other various chemicals that are not very appetizing.

The red roses, the candy, the stuffed animals, the balloons and the cards all mean one thing: it’s Valentine’s Day. The day where lovers purchase little gifts for each other, to show how much love there is in their relationship.
But do we honestly need this day to show our partners how much we love them? What’s wrong with showing our love and appreciation on a daily basis?
This may be a narrow-minded and nonsensical analysis to some, but, contrary to what you may believe, Valentine’s Day essentially destroys the true meaning of love. Through phony commercials and unrealistic advertisements, business leaders feed us propaganda that brainwashes us into thinking, “If I don’t buy it, then she won’t love me.”

On January 20th, in Washington, D.C. our 44th president was inaugurated Barack Obama, the first black president in U.S history.
This inauguration didn't just affect the political world, but also effected Black America in a positive way. Many people of color were very happy that we have a black president. Most people believe that change is coming our way, that many things will change in America and Black America.
