Have you ever sat outside your house during a thunder storm to watch the lightning? Nikola Tesla invented the famous Tesla coil that creates electricity or lightning to replenish the earth.  In the Tesla coil there are things called capacitors that store electricity. When a switch is flipped, the electricity is released through the machine. In the atmosphere there is a layer called the ‘Ozone Layer’. It protects us from the Sun's harsh rays, without it we could die. Lightning helps restore that ozone layer during a storm. That is why there is always a fresh scent after lightning storms.

Did you know that the 6 foot ninth grader Rowdy Beaman was on Salem Hill’s swim team? Well you do now! He’s been practicing 20 hours a week! Could you do that?

The Lobo Howl got a chance to interview Rowdy and ask him questions about swimming. He started swimming about three years ago, because his dad told him he would be good at it. His dad was correct, because at Rowdy’s first high school meet he broke four records. He broke the 500 free time in 5.31.73 and the 200 free time in 2.06.99. He didn’t know the other times for the other two, but they were the 400 and 200 free relays.

For this issue The Lobo Howl decided to do something a little different to mix it up. Instead of asking the students, we thought it would be fun to get the teacher’s answers. We went around and asked twenty random teachers what their favorite Thanksgiving dish is. For some of the teachers they couldn’t decide on one single dish.

The Lobo Howl had the opportunity to talk to some of our schools lunch staff, and were able to find the inside scoop on our school lunch. When asked what their favorite meals are to serve, they answered rice bowls. Did you know our school serves three different kinds of rice bowls? At lunch they rotate through Sweet and Sour chicken, Mandarin Orange chicken, and Teriyaki chicken. They sometimes will even serve fortune cookies and/or egg rolls to go along with them.

Our 4H students got to show off all of their hard work at the 4H Showcase, Thursday the 17th. It started at 7 pm and all of the parents were seated for an introduction including the 4H pledge. A few groups from the Shakespeare team performed at the beginning. Then, their students took them to their separate 4H classes—Incredible Edibles, Crafty Critters, All Around Sports, 3D Computer Arts, Lobo Den Games and Creative Calendars—where they did a few different activities.
