A group of mainly democratic senators has called for a vote on the FCC’s decision to overturn Net Neutrality. The group consists of all 47 Democratic Senators, the Independents Bernard Sanders of Vermont, Angus King of Maine, and Republican Senator Susan Collins, also of Maine. They will attempt to hold the vote before the end of next week. Even if the measure passes through the Senate, it is unlikely it will receive sufficient support in the House of Representatives.

On this day in 1934, a massive dust storm sent millions of tons to topsoil from the Great Plains region to the east, as far as New York. Part of the larger event called the Dust Bowl, these series of Dust storms were caused by both dry farming and because of the overproduction of wheat during World War One. The Dust Bowl had the unfortunate timing of occurring during the worst years of the Great Depression, but farming practices were altered across the country to keep the number of Dust storms at a minimum.

Seniors, It’s time to celebrate your future direction decisions.  You spent the majority of your senior year trying to decide what your future holds and where you would like to be next year.  All seniors who have made the decision to further their education by attending college, technical or trade school, art or nursing school or who have enlisted in any branch of the armed services, are invited to show EHS where you will be continuing your schooling next year.  You can email your counselor, send them a Schoology message, or stop by the Counseling Office  to drop your counselor a note about where you are headed next year (college or military).  Your picture will be posted on the bulletin board outside of the counseling office for everyone to see!  Don't delay!
