A poem by Cassidy Clark. Cassidy is a sophomore at Lehighton Area High School.

To use them

To share them

They can hurt

They can heal

There are millions of them

Different sizes and shapes

Be cautious when sharing

Be careful how you speak them

Only listen to the good ones

The bad have no place here

Rely on the stronger

Live behind the weak and hurtful

Show emotion with them

Express yourself with them

But be careful

A word isn't always just a word

A poem by Jayne Kuehner. Jayne is a junior at Pleasant Valley High School.

You need me to see,

but I have no eyes.

You can walk through me,

but I can't walk, run or fly.

You can turn me off,

and turn me on.

But you'll find most of me,

coming from the sun.

I'm not able to be held,

without me there's fright.

I am also not heavy,

because I am light.

A short story by Bridget McFadden. Bridget is a recent graduate of Jim Thorpe Area High School.

Dave and April Reid heard the phone scream. They glanced left to see if it was the house phone.

"It's the other phone," Dave notified April.

The two gave each other a determined look before answering the bright red hot line.

"Professor Speed and Spring Flower here. What's the emergency, mayor?"

"There's a crisis at town hall! Mr. Gorilla is back! Hurry!!!"
