Life in High School by Journi Romstad, Winner of Life in High School Writing Contest

Life in High School by Journi Romstad, Winner of Life in High School Writing Contest

High School, nothing like the movies. Nobody gets up on the tables and sings, there's no group of "big bad girls," and in the end, the unpopular girl doesn't always get the guy. They teach us a lot in high school, most of it we don't listen to. But it's where you make all your memories. I believe high school is where you set the path for you future. What you learn shapes who you are, and who your going to be. 

 

Memories. Most of the memories you make in high school stick with you for life. So why not make them good ones? 

 

Challenges. You will face many challenges during these four years. Some could be drugs, relationships, grades, peer pressure, or bullying.

White Rock Park Grand Opening Brings Out Community

The Cordova Recreation and Park District celebrated the grand reopening of White Rock Community Park on Saturday, much to the delight of the surrounding neighborhood.  Thousands of residents flocked to the park to celebrate the complete renovation of the park, in the works for seven years.  The residents enjoyed live music, games, crafts, bouncers, a giant slide, free piggy bank and beach balls compliments of Cordova Recreation and Park District, free barbecue, tours of the new building, and took time to meet District staff and local dignitaries.  Most popular of all, this day marked the inaugural run of the park’s free splash park, a 4,000 square foot behemoth that includes a huge dumping bucket, slides, spray jets, and more.  The splash park is the largest free public splash park in Sacramento County, perhaps even in Northern California.

Nice Display For a Tortilla

Nice Display For a Tortilla

I found this a little humorous. We're at a joint to eat in Placerville and they brought this out as an appetizer. I'm not poking fun, but I chuckled when this arrived and i had to take a shot of it. They also had taco truck pinatas hanging from the ceiling. I'm getting one of those next time!
