  Jersey Shore is over.  The only thing left are a few references to Snooki and the Situation in his “situation.” I can’t say I’ve ever actually watched an episode of Jersey Shore.  I don’t know the characters.  I can guess the storyline.

  Cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater.  It was so easy to chant that as a child, when the only thing at stake was a game of hide and seek or freeze tag. But, those words are ringing ever so true right now to Lance Armstrong.  The only way you could have missed this story is if you are living with your head stuck in the sand.

       I just erased a whole post that I had written.      It was funny. At least, I thought it was.  But, I couldn't bring it around to say what I wanted it to.  I was working on it and working on it, and I couldn't get past the typical "girls, don't feel pressured by the media to look a certain way.

  So, what about this issue of cohabitation?  Why is it a bad idea?  Does a piece of paper or a ceremony really make that much of a difference?

Part 1 These last two weeks have certainly been full of news stories.  From record amounts of snowfall in the Northeast, to autopsy results revealing that Amy Winehouse had a blood alcohol level of more than 4 times the legal amount at the time of her death, to Jessica Simpson revealing her pregnancy, to Kim Kardashian announcing her divorce from Kris Humphries after only 10 weeks of marriage.

I attended Rhea County High School. I'm a Rhea County Golden Eagle. And when I go back to teach there and tell the students that I've been where they are, I mean it. Well, except for the last time I was there. We didn't have our own classroom, so we met in the boys locker room.

  This newsletter was extremely difficult for me to write. As I started to compile some recent articles that pertain to this line of work, I felt it was time for another blog post. An opportunity for you to hear from one of us.  What would be the topic of discussion?

by Taylor Hollingsworth          In my final weeks as part of the Edge at the Women’s Care Center, I continue to hear the same question again and again-- “will you miss it?” After a 2 year career of being lovingly referred to as the “sex guy” by so many adoring youth throughout Rhea County and it’s surrounding areas, it’s very difficult to articulate all the things I want to say in response to that question.

By Joel Trigger, Educator Last night we went to a basketball game at Spring City middle school. We spent three weeks there earlier this year teaching 6th – 8th grade. We had a ton of fun getting to know the students outside class by eating with them during lunch and playing dodge ball with them in the gym in between classes.

  Our program, the Edge, is presented to students starting in the sixth grade. Before we spend the week with the students, they are given an "opt out" form to give to their parents. This allows parents to decide if they want their child to participate in the program.
