 Helpful Hints for Helping Others
 By: Thea Curlis


           In need of service hours and don’t know where to go or what to do? Well there are a lot of service opportunities
  in your community that you can take advantage of. The Hope House in Middletown is always accepting volunteers to
  help the homeless by serving food and volunteering your time in any way to help them. To contact them call 513-424-
  HOPE. Another way to get good service ideas is by going to volunteermatch.org. They find volunteering opportunities
  close to Monroe and help you by just giving ideas of other things you can do. On top of all that you can also do other
  things like babysitting, raking leaves, mowing lawns, and volunteering at your church. And for all you NHS members,
  there are meetings the first Tuesday of every month where there will be more opportunities for service hours given by
  Mrs. Hammond and Ms. McNaughton. So don’t wait until the last minute to serve for the better of your community,

  Cool, Creative, and Clever Costumes

         Since Halloween is coming soon, I thought it would be fun to have people think back on their favorite cos-

 grade level and two teachers. Let’s see what their favorite costumes of all time are!

Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better

         It’s a constant debate, who is better men or women? We have
been assigned gender roles since before we were even old enough to
know the difference between boys and girls. The Hornet Times de-
cided to put it all to the test. We put one male, senior Connor McE-
wen, and one female junior Reegan Reece through a series of tests to
see which gender ultimately reigned supreme. Here are the results:

1. Most foul shots made out of 10
   WINNER: REEGAN (5/10) to Connor’s 3/10

2. Longest Hula Hoop
   WINNER: REEGAN

3. First 3-point shot made
   WINNER: CONNOR

4. Most soccer shots made out of 5
   WINNER: CONNOR (3/5) to Reegan’s 2/5

5. Best out of 3 pictures drawn (judged by
   the class)
   WINNER: REEGAN (2 out of 3)
   Reegan won drawing a dog and a birthday
   cake, Connor won the haunted house

Look Good, Drive Safe, and Trust Your Ideal First Car
By: Cameron Centers


         I know that most kids want a car that is new, fast, and hot. But the reality is,
parents aren’t going to give in most of the time. Most parents want something that is
safe, reliable, and cheap. The car you want to look for is something in between those op-
tions. An ideal first car for me is something that looks sporty, is well priced, and is af-
fordable for insurance, gas, and other things. The best choice for anyone’s first car would
have to be a Honda Civic. They have a good reputation for running a long time on mile-
age. It also has very good mpg. It’s not considered a sports car so it is cheap on insurance
but can be modified easily, whether its rims, body kit, stereo system, etc. There are end-
less possibilities. Since a Honda Civic is such a common car, getting it repaired or getting parts can be easy and
cheap because Honda parts are in such high demand. If a Honda Civic isn’t really for you then I would recommend
looking around at other makes such as Toyota, Acura, and Ford.


  Trick-or-Treat: How Old is Too Old to Get Free Candy
  By: Connor McEwen

                                     Everyone loves to get free candy and dress up like an idiot without being judged.
                            The problem is that this only happens one night a year, also people put an age limit on this
                            thing! I agree with this, but it needs flexibility. I say you can trick-or-treat until you are
                            nineteen years old. After that it’s off limits. UNTIL you have your own kids to take out on
                            Halloween night, OR you become a senior citizen for a few years. Who doesn't love seeing
                            an older person dressed up and ready to party?! Well now you know the rules! Have fun and
                            don't take candy from little kids! Seriously that’s not cool...=)

                             Adam Dunn- Adam Dunn was born in Porter, a small town in Texas. Almost all of his
                    relatives live off of Dunn Lane in Porter. He worked from the time he got off of school until it was
                    too dark to see outside. Yet, he was still an all-star quarterback and the 1st basemen at the high
                    school. Standing close to 6’ 5” weighing well over 200 pounds he ran a sub 4.5 40 yard dash. Eve-
                    ryone expected him to play professional football, but instead he played professional baseball in the
                    spring, and played for Texas football in the fall. In 1999 he ended his football career to further his
                    skills in baseball. Since then he has played for 3 teams, hit 354 home runs, 880 RBI’s, 990 walks,
                    and had 1632 strikeouts.

                    his high school basketball team. He worked hard and throughout the remainder of his high school
                    career was the star. After high school he went the University of North Carolina to play for Coach
                    Dean Smith. He then played 9 seasons with the Chicago Bulls in the NBA before and early retire-
                    ment. Through the 94-95 baseball season he played for the minor league Birmingham Barons. He
                    quickly realized baseball was not his thing, so he went back to the NBA and played another 5 sea-
                    sons. Then he retired. Again. Then He decided to come back and play one more season with the
                    Washington Wizards before he retired for good. At the end of his career he had 32,292 points,
                    2,514 steals, and 5,633 assists.
