The Forbidden Kingdom
came out on April 18 and is receiving many mixed review...mostly negative however.
The movie revolves around an American teenager, Jason (Michael Angarro) who is obsessed with old kung fu movies. He somehow stumbles into ancient China when he finds a staff in the back of a pawn shop. There, he discovers that he is "the traveler" who is destined to bring the staff back to the frozen Monkey King who will then be free of his curse and able to defeat the Jade Emperor who is unjustly ruling the land.

Newark scored five runs in the first inning and only added on to their lead afterwards as the Cougars cruised by the Colts 11‑4.
Cougar Bobby Neves went 2‑4 with four runs driven home. Ryan Hugens and Sean Martin each had a pair of hits and two RBIs.
The Cougars scored five times in the first inning and added three more in the 4th to build a 8‑1 advantage halfway into the contest. The Colts made a bid to come back when they pushed across two runs in the bottom half of the 4th, but the Cougars would score three more times in the final inning to close out the game.

Matt Smith, who as a house principal this year helped introduce “freshman families” into the ongoing effort to establish small learning communities at James Logan High School, will serve as the school’s Vice Principal, Teaching and Learning, in 2008-09.
“Increasing our emphasis on instruction is our top priority at Logan, and continuing to move toward smaller learning communities is critical to that mission,” New Haven Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Pat Jaurequi said. “Matt is someone who has shown he can lead us in both areas.”
