Turner Maxwell While their horses trotted, local riders tied down their preseason nerves at The Fourth Annual Ice Breaker Schooling Show hosted by The Oregon Horse Center last weekend. “If they have any jitterbugs going into competition, they can get them out here,” said facility manager Heather Engstrom. The Ice Breaker was a developmental show, meaning it was a practice competition. The show gave nearly 30 riders a stress free competition before they headed into their 2012 horse show season. For seven year-old Olivia Santee, it was her first time competing on a full size horse.
We sang, danced, and told scary story until midnight. In the end of the camping, the instructor asked us to rescue a doll which placed near the waterfall. It was a very pleasant trip. All of us were having fun, because our high school is in downtown Jakarta, so we rarely saw mountains. Three months after that, around March 2011, my friend, Evan, fell from his motorbike when he went to my home to returned my shoe.
I have never seen her so excited to go to school and show-off all her hard work, time, and effort she has put in this project. For three days, the judges kept all the science experiments to see who would win 1st place. I had the honor of picking her up from school when they were announcing the winner of the science fair and you would not believe who won, everybody did. Sadly in today’s world everybody is a winner and everybody works just as hard as the next. This communist line of thinking is doing way more damage than good to our American spirit.
I was ecstatic and remember shrieking and jumping up and down as I ran to my parents and they hugged me. I stayed on this team for the next three years of junior high and loved it with all my heart because we won so many local competitions. I wanted more though and I wanted to be on a team even
On the morning of the incident, Jessica was playing with four other children in the backyard with her mother, supervising. Cissy briefly went inside to answer the phone, leaving the children unattended. It was that momentary instant that changed their lives forever. Cissy returned back outside and soon discovered that Baby Jessica had fallen into an eight-inch diameter well and become trapped deep down in its shaft. For the next 58 hours, frantic rescue crews attempted to save baby Jessica’s life.
Elaine was proudly coached by Peter Burrows and Marylynn Gelderman throughout her amateur and professional career. She was one of the first woman to land many triple jumps in her programs. In fact, Elaine landed six triple jumps to win the world championship title in 1982(Ryan, Joan). In addition, Zayak was apart of the first trip to China by American Skaters for a competition. There was a Zayak rule, inacted at the 1982 ISU Congress, which states that many not perform the same kind of jump more than twice, and for it to be given full credit on both occasions, one of the two triples must be incorporated into a combination or sequence(Farris, JoAnn Schneider).
I am personal friends with, and sit on the panel with, the woman who is the chairperson for the international conference which sets standards for education and treatment policies for professionals in the chemical dependency field. These are the best professionals in the world being led by a woman who is from a town with a population of approximately six hundred people (and a coon dog). Last week, she was in Brussels formulating test standards. This weekend, she and her husband are headed to the deer stand to get ready for hunting season. Her camouflage and boots do not diminish her intelligence any more than a farmer becomes a neurosurgeon because he stayed at Howard
At Holiday Bowl in Albuquerque, there is an arcade with games such as Air Hockey, Ridge Racer, Toy Cranes, and much more. The morning I visited Holiday Bowl, the University of New Mexico was holding tryouts for the 2010-2011 school year team. The students trying out were placed into two teams and had to bowl three consecutive games to show their skills. After the games were finished, each person was required to take a written test about game rules, bowling facts, and they had to calculate scores of the games played. As I watched the tryouts, I sensed the passion the former and the trying out team members had for the game.
As a young girl I had a dream I wanted to reach, to become an Olympic gymnast. I was three years old when I started training twice a day everyday. My coach Stacy Maloney had already taken two gentlemen to the Olympics, who won and next was my turn. That dream fell short when I found out that my life was being threatened by this infection. Doctors believe I picked up MRSA from doing the thing I love most, gymnastics.
I then began to take the tests required to advance to the next level. Just recently actually, I passed the Senior Moves in the Field test, which I am especially ecstatic about because passing that test signified that I have completed all the other test and reached the highest level. Another aspect of figure skating I absolutely love is the competitions. I love the pounding of my heart and the surge of adrenaline flowing through my body the moments before I take the ice. What I like about the competitions is not winning a gold medal because to be honest I probably lost more than I have won.
