June means many things to a lot of people. The start of summer will be here shortly and if your school aged, it means that your summer break has started, or will be starting shortly. A chance to get away from the daily grind of school and to have the chance to have a little fun in the sun is something that many try to do as they try to figure out what to do next, whether it’s college or heading into the workforce. That is the question that is facing many of the soon to be high school graduates that are filtering out of the halls of the area high schools. For those Tigers waiting to flex their claws in the real world that opportunity will come with the completion of commencement exercises that are set to take place at Harrison Stadium in Oroville on June 6, 2014. For more information, check out ohs.ouhsd.org.
Next up are the Thunderbirds of Lass Plumas High School. Getting ready to spread their feathers and figure out their own place in the world, commencement is set to take place for the red & blue on June 5, 2014 at 8:15 p.m., with the location also being Harrison Stadium. For more information, check out http://www.lphs.ouhsd.org/. Finally, the graduates of Prospect High are also in preparation for their own commencement activities. Their event will take place June 4th. Congrats to all of the graduates this year from these institutions and also to those at the other schools in the area. For the high school graduates, best of luck in your endeavors and for the younger generations, continue to keep your eye on the ball and you’ll be just fine.
Every two years, individuals are given the opportunity to go to their local polling place and cast their vote(s) for the measure(s) and/or candidate(s) of their choosing. What makes this system what it is, is that the general populous is able to exercise their opinion with the professed hope of it being done for the potential betterment of the overall community at large. To not only have the chance to try and make a difference but to see that potential for change lead to an outcome(s) that will have a lasting impact upon not only the current generation in question but hopefully for future generations to come. Change is a part of life and in many cases it begins with the action taken by one single person and with that, can influence the group as a whole. This year is a mid-term election year and with that, there is the usual amount of information to try and digest. With that being said, the effort undertaken to read the information available is a worthwhile endeavor, being that the action taken to do so, can very well lead to positive changes that impact small, rural communities, such as the City of Oroville.
