The major purpose of our educational facilities is to teach students different bits of information that will accumulate to a level of understanding that will allow those students to live successfully in society. This, being the basis of education at James Logan High School, and in most schools, is flawed.
For those of us that have experienced a larger portion of life than others, understand one key factor in personal gain: experience. To truly understand something, one understands it through logic, then through the experience of it or sometimes vice versa. When one learns to walk, they have examples from those around one, but they do not have the feeling of doing so. This is the same with most topics in school, excluding some forms of math and science.

The Class of 2008 in the stands
last year. Courier photo
It could be considered a senior tradition, when, every spring, James Logan High School takes its senior class out into the stadium in order to take their panoramic picture, the wide format photograph of the entire senior class, or, at least, those in attendance the day of the photo.
In the recent past, the photo of the senior class in the home stands has been is taken when the rest of the grade levels are taking the spring-time STAR tests.
Not so, this year. Vice Principal Linda Kingston and her staff have decided to move the date from early spring to mid fall —tomorrow, in fact— so that the picture can be put into the yearbook.

(October 15, 1884 – December 31, 1910) was an early pioneer aviator for the Wright brothers.
He was born in Staunton, Illinois on October 15, 1884, and used the name Arch Hoxsey. He moved with his parents to Pasadena California as a child. Not much is known about Hoxsey's early life. By his early twenties he showed an interest in the new technology of automobiles and became a fine automobile mechanic. By 1909-1910 this mechanical ability led to a meeting with the Wright Brothers through their manager Roy Knabenshue. In March 1910 Orville Wright opened a school in Montgomery Alabama to teach new aspiring aviators how to fly. Hoxsey signed up to be trained and joined Wright at Montgomery. Hoxsey became such an adept pilot that Wilbur later considered him one of his favorites. These aviators were to be the select pilots for the new Wright Exhibition Team scheduled to hit the road as a troupe in the summer of 1910. Hoxsey was amongst one of the first Wright pilots to fly the Wrights' new Model B aircraft after having been trained by Orville on the model A-B which was a transitional aircraft.
