Page Ten N/Warren Town and County News Thursday, January 28, 2010 Jon-Paul Harkin Visits Deb Stanley's Class Recently Jon-Paul Harkin made a surprise visit to Deb Stanley's class. Her class had been writing letters to Harkin as he has been stationed in Iraq. Harkin was a former fourth grade student in Stanley's class. When Stanley discovered he was in Iraq, she knew her class needed to begin this writing journey. This writing project was introduced to the students as part of their writing cur- riculum practicing the friendly letter format. Students reviewed the five parts of the friendly letter and than began their draft. Students are also working on writing im- proved paragraphs, so their writing piece had many goals besides communicating with our soldier Stanley sent the first set of letters and when Harkin received them, he sent an email to confirm their delivery. He was so excited that the students had thought about him. So, at about that time, he knew he was possibly going to come home for Claristmas, so the surprise began to develop. Unfortunately, it did not happen before Christmas, but Harkin was able to come after Christmas. He was able to talk to the students about his job and the area in Iraq where he was stationed. Harkin's job is in Patient Administration. He arranges for patients to go to a facility if they need more care than the facility where he is can give them. He shared with the class the importance of organization and self-discipline. When the students asked questions, they learned many interesting details. Some thought that it was very cool that Harkin helped people to get to hospitals. It was exciting to learn that he was promoted to Sergeant. He also shared that his uniform was fire proof. It was also shared that there is a cannon that shoots so that the sky is lit up to check to see if any enemy people might be lingering close by. Harkin also divided the student letters to the people that he works with. Each of the comrades took a letter and wrote back to the students. The students thought this was very cool! The class appreciated the fact that they were getting letters from people who protect our country. The class has their next box ready to send to Harkin and the people he works with. The students are hoping to get to see him again if he gets home before school gets out. But .... before then, they look forward to letters from 'their new friend who is serving in Iraq. Photos submitted. LADY WARRIORS Concluded from p. 9 the b/azzer to tie, but the ball caromed off the rim and the game ended. Reed finished with 20 points to lead the War- riors. Hali VanVelzen had eight points and seven re- bounds. Patava finished with seven pomts includ- ing two three-pointers. Lammers contributed five points. McAninch and Taylor Welden chipped in two each. Coach Wermerskirchen said he was extremely pleased with the way the girls held their composure and did not panic after falling be- hind so early and battling back for the win. "It was a BASKETBALL big win for us," he said. Norwalk traveled to Des Moines Roosevelt Sat- urday, Jan. 23, and were overcome by a talented Rider team led by Riley Norman. The Warriors fell 52-37. The score was close after one period of play with Roosevelt leading 8- 6 with Lammers' three and VanVelzen shooting three free throws. The Riders then went on a 10-5 run and never looked back leading at half-time, 25-15. Norwalk cut the lead to seven points on Lammers second three-pointer, 'but were unable to get closer. VanVelzen led Norwalk with 13 points and nine rebounds. She was nine- of-ten from the free-throw line. Patava and Reed had seven each. Lammers fin- ished with six points. Devin Brown hit from be- yond the arc to finish with three points and McAninch had one. LIBRARY HOURS Monday - Thursday 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. Friday & Saturday 10 am. - 5 p.m. Sunday, 1-5 p.m. Closed Sundays (Memorial Day-INmr Day) LETTER Concluded from p.9 Some have indicated that they are too expensive and have quoted some pretty high numbers as to the cost. Reasonable estimates that I have seen indicate that the home fire sprinklers could be installed in new construc- tion for around $3.50 per square foot. The U.S. Fire As- sociation (USFA) brings these numbers even lower as they stated in October 2009, "At the present time, cost of a home sprinkler system is targeted at approximately $1.00 to $1.50 per square foot in new construction. It is hoped that the cost will decrease as the use of home fire protection grows. It is also possible to retrofit existing homes with sprinkler systems." It is also interesting to note that these residential style sprinkler heads are designed with very fast response times. The sprinkler heads are smaller than traditional, commercial, and industrial sprinklers, and can be aes- thetically coordinated to fit with your home ddcor. In addition, the systems require less water supply than the systems installed in industrial or commercial settings and can be connected to the domestic water supply. Take some time to give this some thought and con- sider contactingyour legislator to advocate this change in our building codes. /s/Steve Davidson, CSP 2210 Merle Huff Avenue Norwalk Because he and President Andrew "Old Hickory" Jackson were so close, James Polk was often referred to as "Young Hickory" Author Mark Twain held three patents--one for gar- ment straps, one for a scrap- book with adhesive-coated pages and one for a game to help children remember history.
