Back in January, 1998, 20 years ago, three advice-seeking students requested some help in dealing with their personal conflicts. Various individuals looking for some direction inquired about a variety of relationship problems they were struggling with. With two greatly contrasting responses for each question, “Bonnie” responded with helpful and encouraging advice while “Clyde” answered with quite the opposite.

 

20 years ago in December, EHS students in the American Government class got involved in society and actually tried to help fix the problems that they saw around them. Similar to what Sophomores are doing now with their Power of One volunteer projects, students in the American Government class had to choose a problem that they saw and then volunteer with an organization that was trying to stop it. A variety of students gave their input and said what they thought about the opportunity and also what their prospects were for the volunteer work.

 

Turning back the clocks to December, 1998, newspaper staff provided a list of what they thought were the top ten reasons for holiday emergency room visits. Former student Mike Bystrom ranked “While taste testing to make sure that the cookies you left out for Santa are okay, you remember that Mr. Maio poisoned them with cyanide” as number nine on his list, while “I like bacon” made number five and “The Japanese Mafia tries to ‘rub you out’ after you sell them some bad rice flavored egg nog” achieved number one. All together, Bystrom and fellow former student Brooke Harless listed 20 different reasons for holiday emergency room visits.
