Recently Logan seniors found out that their graduation date has changed yet again. Instead of graduation being on June 6 as planned, the New Haven Board of Trustees, lead by President Michelle Matthews, moved the graduation ceremony to June 9.
That moves the graduation from a Wednesday night to Saturday morning at 9 a.m.
For some, the change upsets already made plans.

Price: $250 (Wi-Fi only version)
or $300 (Wi-Fi/3G version)
Even when it was brand new, Sony's Playstation Portable left something to be desired. With the Nintendo DS finally coming into its own, the merits of having a touchscreen were plain to see. And for a system attempting to distill the console experience onto a handheld with nothing lost, the lack of a second analog stick crippled the PSP from day one.
Until technology comes along that allows us to control games with our minds, the Playstation Vita has no such problem. It supports the tried and true, with a full complement of buttons and two analog sticks. It has a capactive, multitouch-capable touchscreen that vastly outclasses Nintendo's resistive screen. It has an accelerometer for tilt control, a microphone for voice control and front and rear cameras for augmented reality. There's Internet via Wi-Fi and, optionally, 3G. With a capactive touch panel adorning the back of the device, there's even something brand new.

Eddie Anderson, right, with
fellow comedian Red Skelton
Eddie Anderson (September 18, 1905 - February 28, 1977), often known as Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, was an African American comic actor who became famous playing "Rochester van Jones" (usually known simply as "Rochester"), the valet to Jack Benny's eponymous title character on the long-running radio and television series The Jack Benny Program.
Born in Oakland, California into a family of performers, Anderson began his show business career at age 14 in a song-and-dance act with his brother Cornelius and another performer. They billed themselves as the Three Black Aces. At a young age, Anderson permanently damaged his vocal cords (he had to yell loudly for his job selling newspapers), leading to his trademark "raspy" voice.
