Blonde Of The Prairie: Remember to remember what you’re saying

April 27, 2012

I have a memory. Oh my do I have a memory. I remember things that could have been purged long ago and far away but my memory has memorized them and that’s all there is to it. In the 10th grade I memorized Marc Anthony’s speech at Caesar’s funeral. I do a very impressive dramatic impression of this grand Shakespearian moment. Stop me on the street any day and I’ll prove it. The point is I don’t need to know this anymore for any reason other than I do. The whole entire speech lives long in my memory-but that’s not all.

VCHS prepares prehistoric prom

April 27, 2012

It was a time when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, volcanoes spewed fiery lava and pterodactyls roamed the skies searching for prey.

But upon closer inspection, the dinosaurs are made of painted cardboard, and the volcano is fashioned out of yards of draped tulle, making the perfect background for Valley City High School’s elaborate 2012 prom theme: “From the Beginning of Time to the End of Time.”

“We just thought a prehistoric theme would be fun, and ‘the end of time’ has a little bit to do with 2012,” said VCHS art teacher and prom advisor Carol Foth.
