To Nolan Estes for consenting to
an interview with Christine Gorman
for her GPA story.
To Mr. Maples for putting up with
this article as long as he has.
To the all night party. It's a great
excuse for being gone all night.
For letting the Seniors only have to
make up two of the three snow
For secretly turning on, or forget-
ting to turn off, the Coke machines
The W. T. White Saga, which you
will receive next Tuesday.
I would like to express my views on the
way students are transported to Skyline and
the Magnet Schools for half a day. A lot of
times the bus is late or doesn't come at all.
Sometimes it is changed with a different bus
or driver. I think that the school officials
should have some way to communicate with
the buses en route to the schools. Usually
the students don't know what the deal is
with the buses, resulting in skipping the trip
or missing the bus. After talking to Skyline
students, many expressed their dislike for
even attending the school in the future.
They want to continue their classes there,
but feel it isn't worth the hassle. Also, many
of them, including me, cannot eat lunch
quick enough to catch the bus. Thus,
students cut in the lunch line, causing many
of us to miss lunch completely. So, for
whoever it concerns, please do what you
can in this situation or many students may
be forced to drop their Skyline/Magnet
For not letting the Seniors out early
on prom day.
To who ever smashed all the doors
to the student parking lot and Home
To the morons who walked out of
the musical at intermission; here is a
new word for you, RUDE.
To the district for not financing the
Mass Media class.
I would like to say that at W.T. White
there is an ever present problem. It is the
abuse that the teachers take from the
students. These men and women get up
every morning and drag themselves to
school to teach a bunch of kids, many of
whom could care less if they learn anything
or not. They teach us not because they have
to or need the money, but because they
want to. If they did not care, would they be
here now? Everyone is entitled to a good
education, and most teachers try to give it
One very seldom finds a teacher who
dislikes teaching. Students abuse teachers,
and it is not right. I am not saying that I am
perfect, because 'I have hasseled a few
teachers at White. Maybe that is a part of
growing up and becoming more mature;
when we realize our mistakes. Suppose you
heard a teacher refer to a student as a
%#5 #ot&// ? It would probably throw
you for a loop. But if a student refers to a
teacher by using obscenities, others may
laugh, agree, and even praise him.
Contrary to popular belief, teachers are
human, just like everyone else. You would
be surprised how many teachers are willing

to listen to your problems and to help. They
can be friends, if you give them a chance. I
have found friends in a teacher or two.
There's one in particular who without her
help, I probably would not have made it
through some rough times.
Teachers give students a chance, so why
can't students give teachers a chance? We
have been given the right to make adult
decisions, so let's start acting like adults.
Teachers have feelings and they can be
easily hurt by malicious words that some
students tend to use. So the next time you
start to give a teacher a hard time, stop and
think to yourself, "How would I feel if it
were me up there?" Then try giving them a
