Students learn real holiday history

During this time period, Carpenter said the pilgrims formed an alliance with the Wampanoag tribe that spanned approximately 40 years before the chief died and his relatives moved into this role.

Livas: ‘Mr. Big Play’ Bulldog

By whatever method he might choose, the diminuative sophomore wide receiver is one of those rare players who forces fans, teammates, coaches and even opposing players to enter a trance-like mode and take notice.
“Once he gets the football, you can expect just about anything to happen,” said Dave Nitz, the longtime play-by-play announcer for the Tech Radio Sports Network. “He’s a lot of fun to watch.”
Livas may be on the horizon of only his second year of collegiate competition, but he has already created a thick portfolio of big plays and exhilarating moments for the Bulldogs.

Leave the bird to the pros

“You have to be real careful when you’re dealing with that much cooking oil,” said Gaudet, pointing to the deep fryer he uses to cook 10-12 turkeys at a time. “Oil expands as it heats up, so you have to sometimes drain off a little oil as you drop a turkey in to make sure your levels are all right.
“And you have to make sure the turkey is thawed. Put a frozen turkey in a fryer, and it’ll blow up — literally.”

Among the characters of A Tuna Christmas is Bertha Bumiller, whose attempts to hold her family together as she copes with a rebellious son and unfaithful husband prompt audience members’ concern. Wearing a dark wig fixed in a bun, Georgia’s Jef Holbrook is convincing as a small-town housewife who refuses to dance because she’s Baptist.

Rating system piques interest

Every professor I talked to was oblivious to this honor, and most were oblivious to their own individual standings on said Web site. That much is to be expected, honestly, because there’s a rather love-hate relationship displayed there that, if I were a teacher, I’d need a strong stomach to be able to handle.

Prepsters look to next year

To have reached this week’s quarterfinal round, they would have had to defeat Destrehan, the state’s defending 5A champ which was on a 25-game winning streak.

Jessica Alleman, third-year interior design student and Olathe Designs’ publicity and marketing representative, said the group chose the word “Olathe” for its Native American translation, “beautiful.”
