GILBERT H HOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL! NOVEMBER" 2010 Husky Herald Newspaper 2010!2011 school year Editorial photo found by Jon Bobek Welcome to the Husky Herald Newspaper! Since this is the November issue, I want to talk first about Thanksgiving. I personally love Thanksgiving. I love being able to hang out with my family and relax. Of course, I like Thanksgiving Dinner, too. It’s always fun to sit down, have a meal and simply enjoy each other’s company. Next, I want to talk about fall. Even though it gets colder, and the days get shorter, it is one of the most popular times in New Hampshire. I am speaking, of course, of the Leaf Peepers. Many tourists from around the country come to our state to observe the colorful assortment of leaves. With colors ranging from the brightest yellows and oranges to the deepest hues of brown and red, our leaves continue to dazzle people year after year. From all of us here at the Husky Herald to you, Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Fall. Sincerely, Your Editor, Rachel Pepin GILBERT H HOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL! NOVEMBER" 2010 Emily Sharretts Chelsea hopped off the Gilbert H. Hood Middle School bus, her shoulder-length brown hair flopping in the warm, early-June breeze in Derry, NH. She ran to her house to find her mom waiting for her in the family room. “ I have a surprise!” exclaimed her mom excitedly.“ What is it?” asked Chelsea. ! ! picture by Emily Sharretts & Danielle Tompkins GILBERT H HOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL! NOVEMBER" 2010 The 7th Floor 2: Emily’s Escape By: Rachel Pepin … continued from The 7th Floor ! Emily Whatson screamed and pounded at the Habberson’s cold, dead hands, as they ran to some unknown destination, carrying her along with them. Tears clouded her vision, but she could tell that they had left the Willowcrest. She screamed again, but silenced quickly, because she thought she heard… voices. Calling her name. They were far off, but not far enough away that they could not catch up. The Habbersons ducked around the side of the nearest building, and set her on her feet, Ellis and Lizzy each holding onto one of her arms. She screamed again, trying to make herself heard, but the same big hand that had done it once before closed over her mouth for a second time, the same light, deadly voice whispering in her ear. “Now, now dearest,” Robert whispered, his voice making her skin crawl. “I thought you had learned your lesson last time.” Since her parents were chasing after her, no being held hostage as they had last time, Emily bit his hand. Hard. He ripped his hand away in pain, which surprised her. He was a ghost, but somehow, the Habbersons were solid, just like a normal human. She took advantage of this opportunity to scream again, to make her whereabouts known to her friends and family. She managed to leak a pretty decent scream of help before something hard and rectangular clubbed the back of her head. She was dizzy now, and wobbled on her feet, but she managed to see Robert holding a brick, one that had been pried loose from the side of the building no doubt. He was wearing a malicious grin, a smile of sure evil, before he clubbed her over the head with the brick again, and everything went dark. To be continued… GILBERT H HOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL!

NOVEMBER" 2010 Around Town Karate Interview With Sensei Nick by Callista Lemeiux & ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Ashley Sanville ! 1) How long did it take you to become a black belt? ! Answer: It took me about 4 to 5 years. ! 2) What classes do you teach? What’s your favorite class? ! Answer: I teach all aspects of karate at our dojo. That includes the traditional classes, as well as sparring and weapons class. ! 3)What weapons do you know?Which is your favorite?Why? ! Answer: My best weapon and the one I love the most is the double nun chucks a close second would the katana or sword. But I also know a bit of staff , kamas , sais , fighting fan , club , and knife. I like the challenge that comes with learning each weapon as they all have their own advantages. Double nun chucks became my favorite because I found them especially challenging but fun to do as well. ! 4)What is your favorite form?Why? ! Answer: Including weapons and more traditional forms my favorite would be a double nun chuck form that i made up. As for a traditional form that i need to progress in rank I like the Circle of the Tiger because it has a lot of different movement and footwork that separates it from the more traditional low stances in forms. ! 5)What did you do before you did karate? ! Answer: I love sports, as a kid I played soccer in the fall and baseball in the spring. As I got older I played soccer in both the spring and fall. I also played pop Warner Football and was going to play in high school but decided to focus full time on my martial arts. ! 6) What got you into karate? ! Answer: I found interest in it as a little kid, I loved the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and always tried to impersonate them. You would think that Michealangelo would be my favorite because of the chucks but it was Rapheal. So I joined Tae Kwon Do as a kid but didn’t stick with it and didn’t join Tokyo Joe’s until I was about fifteen. ! 7) What do you love most about martial arts? ! Answer: Everything. I’ve always loved to challenge myself, both physically and mentally; karate does both things. It’s more than just a sport; It is as the name says it is an art, a lifestyle. It ‘s also a great workout and keeps you in great shape. GILBERT H HOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL! NOVEMBER" 2010 Around Town Karate Interview With Sensei Nick (cont...) ! 8) How does someone become a sensei? What inspired you to become a sensei? ! Answer: Being a sensei is more than being a black belt, not every black belt is a one, to become a sensei you have to commit yourself to the school, it’s more than just coming to class. You have to help the school in anyway that you can including countless hours of volunteer teaching, helping out at parties, cleaning the dojo , and anything else you can do to help. Coming into karate I didn’t think about becoming a sensei, it’s not that I didn’t want to achieve that status I just didn’t think really think about it. I involved myself in school any way that I could. When I became a black belt and was awarded sensei I was definitely proud. ! 9)There seems to be a lot of misconception about what karate really is, people see the kicking and punching and think it’s about fighting, others see the low stances,breathing and meditation and think it’s pointless and weird. What do you say to these people? ! Answer: People say similar things about all sports. Some people say only big dumb people play football don’t need anything else, well it’s untrue they lack to understand the strategy and intelligence that goes into it,same thing with karate. Martial Arts is about bettering yourself and those around you. It encourages you to avoid fights and situations in which you may have to fight. Focus,self discipline, effort, etiquette, and character are the foundation of what we teach at Tokyo Joe’s Studios and help teach self confidence. Self defense is an important part but it alone is not karate. I’ve never had to use my karate because I can avoid the situation through self confidence. photo by Callista Lemieux GILBERT H HOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL!

Add enough boiling water to the syrup to make 1 cup. !!! 2 - Mix the unflavored gelatin with the dry Jello.!

At this point I divide it in half, into two bowls, and mix the nuts (yes, all of them; I like it nutty) into just one half.! Chill until set.! (At least 2 hours.) GILBERT H HOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL!
