Hi! We are the first Journalism class here at Liberty High School. Together, we make up a diverse class of Seniors, Juniors, and Sophomores. We all have very different personalities and can't wait to show you what we have to say through this newsletter. Twice a month we will focus on various topics, but will always include the news and events you need to know. If you have something you want included in the news letter, LET US KNOW!
“Get Stuff Done!”
Salt and light has a powerful influence on our environment, but for salt to stop rot it has to be rubbed into the meat. For light to shine in the darkness it has to be set upon a lamp stand and not allowed to go out. We can go farther with salt and light and reflect it on us. We can be the salt and light of this community and of our school. Growing up, my mom always told me that your image is everything and to keep a good reputation. Following this simple rule could change your life in a time you don't expect it to.
Transforming the old society is to implant within the new society, with its different values, standards, joys, and different goals. Let watching people see the differences and find them attractive. You are the light so let it shine. Try to make change set goals and be determined to take risks and follow your passion. Don’t carry things that you should be casting.
A great way to be involved is to help out your community, entrepreneur and costume designer Latisha "Tish" Smith, owner of Rosietish, and co-owner of The Neighborhood is ready to make a difference in our town.
Tish says "As a smaller business owner it's hard to get big projects done. One of the goals is for our small business community meetings that will join together and work. We can join together and spend one night a month helping another small business with “chores” that keep getting pushed back."
Tish wants our businesses to work together. They will have meetings monthly and come up with different events. Shop small “nights out” and shop small “bingo” which will have customers travel to lots of businesses exposing them to more people. Getting the town involved is key! From her "donate the price of a bag" program, to helping our youth programs and giving kids a chance to sell their art so that they can be inspired to make a living from their talent.
In Mountain View, we have great local businesses to shop at and look at, so let’s support them! Shopping small businesses is better quality, better customer service, better prices and faster. They know exactly what you're looking for and always listening for your feedback remember they are working for you and not themselves. Also you’re helping your community when you shop local more of your money will be kept in your local economy. Small businesses are the heartbeat of our neighborhood, the spine of your local economy, and spirit of your town.
