She holds a Bachelor of Arts and Communication Studies degree, a Masters in School Counseling, and is currently working her way towards an Education Specialist degree in School Counseling. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and dogs, and hiking (seeing as she has a very adventurous personality).

Here at Fultondale High School, we hold Mrs. Laney dear in our hearts and she exhibits the same behavior seeing as she is always fully willing to help every student here reach their full potential. Bonus Pic of one of her dogs. -Luke Campbell and Destiny Kidd

School Store

Can we bring it back?

We the yearbook class want to bring back the school store that used to be in the little window by the front gym. We need a teacher that can supervise it when it is opened. It used to sell: pens, pencils, notebooks, etc. To bring it back we have to have willing participants that want it to stay opened. We could have it opened before school or maybe before/after class periods. If you have any ideas on how we might be able to bring back the store please see Angel McLaurin.

Yearbooks (2018-2019) are currently for sale, $70. Get your yearbook, you will not be disappointed! See Mrs. Hyatt in Room 305 (tech building) or purchase in the front office. This year's book will be a Spring book, meaning we will get it back in May before the end of the school year!

Last year's yearbook 2017-2018 limited copies are still available, you can still purchase one for $65 by seeing Mrs. Hyatt in Room 305 (tech building). If you didn't get yours already, get one before they are gone!!

COSTUME IDEAS

October is all about those Spooky costumes, and Parties. If you’re one special person, you’re born on the 31st! To be spookiest of all, you have to be born on Halloween. Serah Vickers turns 16 on Halloween this year! Make sure you wish her a happy birthday! NOW ON TO THE COSTUMES! - Laura Arrington

Cute Boi-Everyone loves 1 or 2 cute looking costumes! This Spooktober you can be cute all you want! Honestly All you have to do is to act like a kid. Find something, like a clown, or an animal, or fantasy creature and make yourself POP! Mainly with makeup… don’t actually pop.

Basic Boi- This one is self explanatory. Find an old cartoon character from a tv show or movie that you like, and then make a huge t-shirt that looks like the character. Wear leggings that match, and a headband if needed.
Spooky Boi- This is one is easy. Be a clown, be a murder, be a creepy doll; be anything you want!!! You can always add blood to it. You know you want to. Scare those kids.

Halloween Party Ideas

Decorating the house, Dressing up in costumes, figuring out your scary games and eating delicious ghoulish treats can only mean one thing, that everybody’s favorite spooky day is upon us.Here are a few ways to make your Halloween party a spooky spectacular.-Destiny Stewart

Food Pumpkin Cheese Ball

Ingredients 3 cups orange cheese puffs 2 pounds cream cheese, at room temperature 3 cups shredded Cheddar ¼ cup chopped chives Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 bell pepper with a long stem Crackers, for serving

Directions

Put the cheese puffs in a food processor and process until finely ground. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Combine the cream cheese, Cheddar, chives, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl and mix to combine. Mold the mixture into a ball, pressing the top of the ball with your hand to flatten it. With the tip of a butter knife, carve lines down the sides to resemble a pumpkin.Roll the cheese ball in the ground cheese puffs. Remove the entire bell pepper stem with a paring knife and put it on top of the cheeseball as the pumpkin stem. Seed and slice the bell pepper. Serve the cheese ball on a plate with crackers and slices of bell pepper.

Witch's Brew

Drinks Ingredients 1( 6 ounce ) package lime gelatin 2 cups of boiling water 3 cups chilled pineapple juice 1 ( 2 liter) bottle chilled lemon-lime soft drink or ginger ale

Directions

Special equipment: 1 large black plastic cauldron (available at party or craft stores) 1 punch bowl that fits inside the cauldron 1 plastic hand (available at party supply stores), sterilized in hot water 1 block dry ice (available at supermarkets, ice cream shops or ice companies)

Pour the gelatin mix into a large bowl. Slowly stir in the boiling water. Stir at least 2 minutes, until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in the pineapple juice. Let cool to room temperature.

Wearing heavy duty gloves or using tongs, place the block of dry ice in the bottom of the cauldron. (Dry ice will burn skin, so handle it with gloves and tongs and keep it away from kids and pets!)

Use an ice pick to break the block into smaller chunks, if necessary.

Fill the cauldron with just enough water to cover the dry ice. It will begin to "steam."

Place the punch bowl inside the cauldron, on top of the dry ice. The cauldron will appear to be magically smoking.

Entrap the sterilized rubber hand between the cauldron and the punch bowl, squeezing it tight so the hand appears to be reaching out of the mist for help. Hot-glue the hand to the cauldron, if necessary, to hold it in place.

Carefully pour the drink mixture into the punch bowl. Slowly add the chilled vodka and lemon-lime soda or ginger ale. Stir gently to mix.

Book Review (Spooky Reading)

- Madison Adkins

Pet Sematary

By: Stephen King

Summary:

Pet Sematary, by Stephen King, is a novel in the horror genre. This novel not only thrills by touching on fear, but also deals with the grief of losing a family member. The protagonist is named Louis Creed. Louis is just starting to hit his stride professionally; he is a doctor with a young family, and the Creeds have just recently moved into a new home located in Ludlow, Maine, brought there by Louis’s new job at the University of Maine. Louis’s wife is named Rachel, and together they have two children named Ellie and Gage.

Their new neighbor, Judson Crandall, lives across the street. Judson, or Jud, becomes an integral part of the story as he and Louis become friends. Due to their age difference, Jud also becomes a father figure to Louis. Jud is married to a woman named Norma, and both show the Creeds kindness, welcoming them to Ludlow. The Creeds’ new home is situated on a large plot of land; upon exploring the boundaries, they discover a pet cemetery. Because the unofficial groundskeepers of the cemetery are children, the sign at the entrance reads “Pet Sematary,” hence the misspelling of the word in the book’s title.

Louis is on his way to work for the first time when he witnesses a fatal car accident. A student named Victor Pascow dies, and that night, he visits Louis and issues a warning. He tells him not to go past the boundary that lies between the Pet Sematary and the woods beyond. This isn’t the only warning Louis receives. Jud informs him that sadly, many animals have been hit by trucks on the dangerous road between their two houses.

A few days after receiving Jud’s warning, Ellie Creed’s cat, Church—short for Winston Churchill—goes into the road and is hit and killed. Louis finds out and doesn’t know how to tell Rachel or Ellie, who are away visiting Rachel’s parents. Louis has stayed home because he and Rachel’s parents don’t get along.

While they’re away, Jud tells Louis to bring Church’s corpse to the Pet Sematary. He leads Louis past the boundary and into the woods. They cross a swamp that the Micmac tribe called Little God Swamp, to an ancient burial ground. Jud tells Louis to bury the cat there. The next day, Church returns from the dead, but he’s not the same as he once was. He reeks and behaves strangely. However, when Rachel and the children return, they don’t seem to notice that something is off with Church.

Later, Louis’s son Gage is hit by a truck on the same road that claimed Church’s life, and Louis tells Jud that he’s going to take Gage to the ancient burial ground. Jud pleads with him not to and tells him about another father whose son had died. The man buried his son there, and sure enough, the child returned… but he wasn’t the same. Instead, he was evil, and threatened Jud. The father had to kill his son, and then chose to take his own life. Hearing this story, Louis is horrified and promises not to try to bring Gage back by burying him there. Despite this, the magic of the burial ground calls to Louis.

Praise for Pet Sematary:

“The most frightening book Stephen King has ever written” - Publishers Weekly

“THE KING OF HORROR WEAVES HIS SCARIEST TALE EVER . . . Turn on all the lights while engrossed in it , turn up the radio for company, call friends and ask them to call you back to make sure that you are still able to answer the phone . . YES IT'S THAT SCARY. YES IT’S THAT GOOD” -Cincinnati Enquirer

“TERRIFYING! Stephen King goes on record as saying Pet Sematary is the one story that scared even him… It is a perfect Gem of a horror story… one that you’ll spend many a dream trying to erase.” -New York Daily News

“King once said his greatest ambition was to write a book that was too frightening to finish… There may be many a reader, left white-knuckled by this novel, who hope he doesn't come any closer.” -Pittsburg Press

Drumming

When you’re serious about drumming, you need a kit to match your ambition. The V-Drums TD-17 series lets your technique shine through, backed up with training tools to push you further. Combining a TD-50-class sound engine with newly developed pads results in an affordable electronic drum kit that’s authentically close to playing acoustic drums—accurately mirroring the physical movement, stick coordination and hand/foot control that every drummer needs. Meanwhile, an array of built-in coaching functions will track your technique, measure your progress and increase your motivation. Becoming a better drummer is still hard work, but the TD-17 can help you get there. -Chris Arizaga

Motivational/Humor Section

-Brandon Coleman

I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not too sure.

Doing nothing is hard, you never know when you're done.

If two wrongs don't make a right, try three.

I am not lazy, I am on energy saving mode.

Life is short, smile while you still have teeth.

A balanced diet means a cupcake in each hand.

Maybe you should eat some makeup so you can be pretty on the inside too.

I'm not shy, I'm holding back my awesomeness so I don't intimidate you.

Sorry for the mean, awful, accurate things I said.

I’m sorry, if you were right, I’d agree with you.

Your life can't fall apart if you never had it together!

People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.

A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don't need it.

If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of payments.

The best revenge is massive success. We've all got both light and dark inside us. If they can make penicillin out of moldy bread, they can sure make something out of you. If you do not believe you can do it then you have no chance at all. The more difficult the victory, the greater the happiness in winning. You can’t knock on opportunity’s door and not be ready. Giving up doesn’t always mean you’re weak. Sometimes you’re just strong enough to let go. I love what I do, and when you love what you do, you want to be the best at it. The best revenge is massive success. I wanted to be successful, not famous.- Shawn Henderson
