CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Astronauts Michael Massimino and Michael Good were hoping Sunday their tough repair mission, fixing the Hubble telescope's black-hole hunter, would go as smoothly as Saturday's spacewalk that revived a dead space camera on the observatory.
No such luck.

chicken for the Unity Fair Friday.
On Friday, Logan held the annual Unity Fair to celebrate the various cultures and ethnicities we have at Logan. It was a way to appreciate our culture and learn about other peoples' also. From the great food they had to the wonderful dances each culture presented, it was great.
I enjoyed the Polynesian food the most, which was presented by the Polynesian Club. They served chicken,white rice and macaroni salad. To top it all off I had an iced mocha from the Garden Club.
I feel like the Unity Fair brought Logan's many cultures together. Logan is always known for having racial issues. This one day can change one's mind about how they feel about a culture, either enlightening them or making them appreciate what they already knew.

Walter Adolph Georg Gropius
(May 18, 1883 – July 5, 1969) was a German architect and founder of Bauhaus who along with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier, is widely regarded as one of the pioneering masters of modern architecture.
Born in Berlin, Walter Gropius was the third child of Walter Adolph Gropius and Manon Auguste Pauline Scharnweber. Gropius married Alma Mahler (1879-1964), widow of Gustav Mahler. Walter and Alma's daughter, named Manon after Walter's mother, was born in 1916. When Manon died of polio at age eighteen, composer Alban Berg wrote his Violin Concerto
in memory of her (it is inscribed "to the memory of an angel"). Gropius and Alma divorced in 1920. (Alma had by that time established a relationship with Franz Werfel, whom she later married.) In 1923 Gropius married Ise (Ilse) Frank (d. 1983), and they remained together until his death. They adopted Beate Gropius, also known as Ati.
