We’re back again with more
reasons to party and celebrate.
Hopefully you used up all of last
week’s reasons. If you didn’t,
you may as well throw them out,
they aren’t any good anymore.
If some of these celebrations
seem like pretty lame exuses, they
are. It’s February, nothing ever
happens in February.
Wed. Feb. 18-
Today is Gambia’s Indepen­
dance day. It’s also the very first

hurry though, the Festival goes
until October 26.

Look out, it’s Mardi Gras!
Time to put on your wildest

Once again Sylvester Stallone
has hit the screen with muscles-a-
flex. “Over The Top,’’ his latest
release, rates better than any of
his previous macho roles follow­
ing the early ‘Rocky’ films.
Taking a step away from his
tough guy roles of Rambo and
Cobra, Stallone has created a
character that can not only beat
the hell out of the next guy, but
can also be a living and caring
When the film begins, Lincoln
Hawk (Stallone) suddenly ap­
pears in his twelve year old son’s
life. Having left Mike’s mother
shortly after the birth of the
child, Stallone and the boy
(David Mendenhall) have never
even seen each other.
Through out the rest of the
movie Stallone strives to win the
respect and love of his son. In the
process of doing so they both
teach each other a few lessons
about life. These are the films
good scenes.

All right you guys and gals, are
you ready for this one? That’s
right, it’s the La Belle Swamp
Cabbage Festival. This is the day
that Florida residents let all hell
break loose and pay tribute to
their state tree, the cabbage palm.

A verb is an action,
a movement and force.
Verbs move,
nouns don’t
Am I a noun?
Am I a verb?
Am I a thing,
or a movement?
Since birth
I have been in action,
thinking and moving,
Even in sleep
my heart beats,
my lungs breathe,
and my mind dreams
I am always moving,
always living,
always an action,
always a verb.
I think
when I am dead
I will cease
to be a verb,
And finally be
