Sasquatch in the news again

There are those out there that simply do not believe in Sasquatch. One of those just happens to be (I won't name names but you can click on the link to see who the non believer is)  this fine photographer and blogger.  But, once again Sasquatch is in the headlines and this time there is proof of his existence.  Believe it or not Sasquatch has not only be sited, he's been found, well kind of, and he's been stolen.  The Sasquatch is question usually resides in Delhi Township but now he's missing.  This Sasquatch happens to be a very friendly version.  In fact, he's known to dress up on occasion.  Delhi Township police are on the look out for the missing squatch and if you happen to see him in your neighborhood or driving around in the back of truck please call the Delhi Township Police Department at 513-922-0060. Ralph Spence who is the caretaker for "squashy" would just like his 400 pound friend back. "We just want him back," he said. Mr. Spence says he will not file any charges.UPDATE ON THE STORY - SASQUATCH FOUND CLICK TO READ. 

B.O.W. for Turkey Week

Just because the week is short doesn't mean there can't be some solid blogging.  I'm glad to see we have a new  blogger on the menu this week.  So because of this new blog, an excellent post, and an even better name for a blog.  This is the blog of the week Keeping up with the Jones is a great name for a blog, especially if your last name just happens to be....Jones!

B.O.W., a tough choice this week

It's about time you folks made it difficult for me to pick the BOW. This week it was tough.  Several excellent blog posts this week. After reviewing the blogs it came down to two.  I was torn between Meghan Pottle's and the Disch. The Disch really does capture her "Mac Attack" syndrome but I think I have to go with Meghan Pottle's blog this week because she is able to deflect the weak driving skills of teenagers onto careless adults who really are the ones behind the poor driving habits of teenagers.

Dr. John Owens visits MHS Media/Journalism students

Dr. John Owens, the director of the Electronic Media Program at the University of Cincinnati spent the morning with Integrated Media and Journalism at M.H.S.  Dr. Owens shared his insights on the new trends in today's ever evolving media climate.  Several students took advantage of his visit to learn more about the E-Media program.  This is the third year Dr. Owens has visited our program and once again it was a great visit.  We certainly do appreciate him taking the time to talk to our students.

Door Ding + Decent Guy = B.O.W.

Well, the "marvelous one" told me he would be the blogger of the week so I have no choice but to help his dream come true. But....this isn't a charity case, Marvelous is worthy of the B.O.W. Great writing, solid posts, a tad bit of humor, and anyone who has to suffer a "door ding" should get a little charity, don't you think? You have to hand it to the "marvelous one" - whenever you can find a way to get "American Pie" mentioned on your blog it is worthy of a shout out.

Fighting the Good Fight

The Chronicle staff is kind of tired of PDA.  You'll see a great story in the upcoming Chronicle about the excessive PDA on display. Duncan MacKenzie has even designed a t-shirt.  Sometimes it is best to keep it simple and I think Duncan gets the message across quite well in his t-shirt design.  While it is kind of nice to see two innocent kids holding hands or even sharing an embrace, like Erin Brush said - "it's not like they're going off to war, they're only going to be apart for 50 minutes."

Awesome writing + great topic = B.O.W.

While I enjoyed reading about Matt Marvar's "door ding," I'm going to have to go with "Jess Sayin" as the Blog of the Week. This has to be a first for Chronicle bloggers.  Alien life forms. You had me at "I believe in Aliens." 

Rashika with the Ping Pong story of the year

This has to go down as one of the most entertaining stories of the year if not ever on MBC.  Awesome job by MBC reporter Rashika Jaipuriar.
