It was a typical Sunday afternoon April 26 at Memorial Park: Dads and their kids were flying kites, others kids played on the swing set and the sounds of heavy metal filled the air. Well, maybe it wasn?t exactly typical. Heavy metal and alternative bands battled their way through the afternoon for the first ?Battle of the Bands? for local artists. The musically inspired idea came from Girl Scouts from Troop 589, Caroline Reich and Julia Rowe as they were thinking of a Gold Award project.

I've always had a hankering for motorcycles. I've had many fantasies of riding a Harley-Davidson adorned with buckskin saddlebags, careening across the blue highways of America. I've even visualized what I would wear. Somewhere above, an orchestra would play, "Born to Be Wild," by Steppenwolf and I would race with the wind to the sound of heavy-metal thunder. Bikers speak of the feelings of freedom, the sensations of wind and movement, and ownership in a distinct subculture where everyone is a brother.

Youth Speak! By Leticia Cheng, LCHS senior and Valley Sun intern In a society where hip hop is becoming more and more mainstream, I am one of the few people, (one of the even fewer people in my generation) who prefers country music-the music that is stereotypically known to be of southern hicks. Personally, I don't understand the appeal of hip hop at all. It's even less appealing and more irritating when it's blasted at full volume. All the songs seem to go somewhere along the lines of "you love me, I love you, let's jump in the sack."

Loa Blasucci My dad has great pockets. He can tune your car or butcher a side of beef with the tools he carries on him. At any given moment he can come up with the exact piece of hardware necessary. It's like watching Mary Poppins pull that lamp out of her carpet bag. Always makes me feel safe. A couple of years ago, (or so) when I was in my teens, he was having a bad time resolving a situation. We sat down to talk and he said, "It's like this." He reached into his pocket and pulled out a heavy duty metal tape measure.
