Good Morning Ephrata, NAMES today is Wednesday December 5 and today is a half day! Please rise for a moment of silence and the pledge to the flag.




Person 1 : Are you ready?

Person 2 : For what?


Person 2: OOOH that’s right.  Student Council is running the annual Christmas Charity homeroom competition this year.

Person 1:  The homeroom that raises the most money will get a doughnut party that Santa would be sorry to miss.

Person 2:  What’s so good about just getting doughnuts?

Peron 1: Hold on its not just doughnuts, you can possibly have it all.  Hot Chocolate, milk, OJ, fruit, bagels, Christmas cookies. You name it you got it!  And all of that happens on Dec 21st the day you leave for break.  So, what a great way to end the year before Christmas break than with a spread the likes of Buddy the Elf has NEVER seen!

Person 2:  Does second place get anything?

Person 1:  Yuppers!  The homeroom that gets second place will get a regular donut party….. so just donuts…. Which is still pretty cool. And those donuts will also be there on Dec 21st before you leave for break.

Person 2:  Does third place get anything? 

Person1:  The rumor is there homeroom gets high fives from Mr. Marzock on Dec 21st

Person 2:  That prize sounds better than the rest.

Person 1:  So don’t be a cotton headed ninny muggings and help out some local Ephrata families this holiday season.

Person 2: Every little bit counts.

Person 1:  That is pretty sweet

Person 2: Sweeter than a candy cane.

Person 1: So talk to your homeroom teacher to see how you can spread Christmas cheer for all the world to hear, this holiday season!

The modification of land for farming and building cities is favoring the same species everywhere, according to a new study. Animals like rats and pigeons are taking over from less common ones, which can survive only in certain habitats, say scientists. Researchers looked at 20,000 animals and plants in 81 countries. They found that species occupying a large area tend to increase in places where humans use the land. However, fauna and flora that occupies a small area is lost.

on this day in  1933, the 21st Amendment to the Constitution was passed and ratified, ending national Prohibition. After the repeal of the 18th Amendment, some states continued Prohibition by maintaining statewide temperance laws. Mississippi, the last dry state in the Union, ended Prohibition in 1966.
