Fly, Fly, Die, Die.

The police officer was driving home, ready to come home from a long day at work. Some crazy person drove by fast, maybe 100 mph. He stopped and followed the car to Misener Bridge. The man got out of the car and walked to the passenger's side door. The man identified as John Nicholas Jonchuck Jr. grabbed his daughter, Phoebe Jonchuck and threw her over the bridge, 60 feet into the water. He ran to his car as fast as a cheetah and drove off.
Five year old, Phoebe Jonchuck was thrown off a sixty foot bridge into the water by her father on January 8th, 2015 .25 year old, John was later pulled over by the Manatee County Sheriff's Deputies about half an hour later. Phoebe was located an hour later and brought to All Children's Hospital and was pronounced dead at 2:44 a.m. Thursday morning."That any child's life would end as Phoebe's did — at the hands of her own parent — is terrible beyond words," the report stated.

Zig. Zag. Crush. Pain

Ronni and Bryce skied faster and faster by the second. Four more skiers joined them and they stopped near the Ski Team's European Training base. The ground shook as the big boulders of ice fell on Ronnie and Bryce. The four that were with them skied away as fast as a cheetah, but Ronnie and Bryce were left there, buried under the snow.
Ronnie Berlack and Bryce Astle loved skiing. Ronnie was 20 years old and a U.S ski athlete and Bryce was 19, from Sandy, Utah. On Monday, January 5th, 2015 in Soelden, Austria there was an avalanche killing both guys, leaving them buried under the snow. Ronnie, Bryce and four other U.S athletes were skiing on a trail near the Ski Team's European training base. The four others were able to escape. There were no coaches there with them at the time. People nearby tried to dig them out, but it was too late.

Shoot and Run?

Ismaaiyl spotted the police car. He ran towards it with a gun in his hand, loaded and ready to shoot. He ran and shot them in the head. Oh no... what have I done? I can't go to jail..He thought. He ran inside the subway. He pulled the gun up to his head...and....boom. He fell on the floor in a subway filled with people.
Today in Brooklyn, a 28 year old man identified as Ismaaiyl Brinsley ran up to a patrol car where there were two police from the NYPD, shot them in the head, ran to the nearest subway and shot himself. Why would he do that? Did he have anything against the NYPD? Did he have a past job there that didn't go so well? Did the NYPD do something to him?

Diablo Canyon say,"WHAT?!!!!!"

PG & E's Diablo Canyon has been changing the cooling system, increasing the ocean water temperature since November 2nd, 2013. This is NOT a good thing. Diablo Canyon is using 2.5 billion gallons of sea water and there are 1.5 billion fish larvae that were sucked into the warm water and most DO NOT survive. This can be a huge problem in the food chain. Most of the food chain lives eating off of fish. Fish is food for a lot of animals that will start to die. This is a $12 billion experiment. Is it really worth helping Diablo Canyon? Is it fair killing all of these fish? What will the future end up like with not much fish? Will prices go up on fish? Will the animals that consume fish learn to feed off of something else? What effect will changing the ocean by a couple of degrees have on the local community and economy for the long term?

Music, Music, Music!!!!!!!!!

Hey, are you going to be there? Huh? Are you? You may not even know what I'm talking about. Our very own Los Osos Middle School Band has decided that it is time to show the rest of the world the musicians' great evolution. Next Wednesday, December 17th, is the LOMS Winter Band Concert at the Performing Arts Center at Cal Poly. The performance starts at 7:00p.m.

About two hundred and fifty student from sixth grade to high school will be playing their woodwinds, brass, and percussion to produce amazing effects that you and your family will enjoy. Your friends including Hattie, Ellena, Lacey, Leif, Brayden, Aidan, Camille, Ian, Cayla, Julia, Mattlend, Gavin, Mattland, Alexis, and many more will be in the band performing. The eighth grade band will present after the High School band, followed by the seventh grade and sixth grade bands.

Some of the melodious songs include: "A Day in a Life", "Prelude and Firestorm,"Zia" and "Ghosts of the Lost Ship." Each piece has its own unique sound and tempo. You can picture different images, if you listen closely. "A Day in a Life" represents someone driving through traffic in a busy city, like Los Angeles or Boston, and the rest of the song progresses based on what happens on the way through traffic. "Prelude and Firestorm" initially represents a peaceful and happy time. Then random people creating firestorms in houses and making the whole scene disturbing, but exciting, at the same time. "Zia" is a calm and peaceful song about a man or woman sitting on a hill, under a tree, playing a wooden flute near the Zia Pueblo Indian tribes and you can hear them celebrating with music, maracas, and tribal drums."Ghosts of the Lost Ship" is a song that tells a story of ghosts and pirates that still haunt the seas.
Buy your tickets today from Mr. Belyea for $9 per person. Tickets are limited! They are being sold quickly as they are being printed. Over 1,050 tickets have been sold. Friends and family do not miss this spectacular performance. Go to the concert!🎶🎶🎶

Woah! New rule?!!!!

Los Osos Middle School's librarian has given a new rule in the library on December 2nd, 2014. Only 65 people are allowed in the library at lunch and you have to sign in before nutrition ends to be able to access the library. The librarian says," I got a complaint from a parent that their child had not gotten their work done in the library because of all the noise and amount of people." So she decided to take this problem into her own hands and set up this rule.
