Letter from the editor
Elizabeth Harris
Editor-In-Chief
Although we all quite frequently say “I hate everyone in my
grade” or “I cant wait to get out of here,” we all know for the
majority of us that isn’t true, well at least for the most part. We
have all made amazing friends and memories at Seneca Valley
that have touched our hearts forever. I’m going to miss my best
friends dearly, Randi, Kristen, Courtney, Mckenna, Shannon Juliana; I love you guys. I know everyone else in the senior class has
friends they will miss dearly too.
We have all had amazing teachers who have impacted our lives
in one way or another. Mrs. Zewe taught me its always best to
be a “super listener;” Mr Pysher, my favorite teacher ever, taught
me to never let the petty drama affect my life; Mrs. Russell
taught me how to write a proper essay; Ms. Hazen instilled in
my head the difference between good and well; and Mr. Lucot
passed along more knowledge to me than any other teacher
ever has.
I would like to graciously thank Mrs. Narcisi, Mr. Stebbins, and
Ms. Rice for teaching me everything I know about journalism.
Because of all of you, I cannot wait to become a journalist - you
have all made my high school journalism experience amazing.
Without our teachers, we would not be where we are today,
yes some of them may have tortured us with hours of pointless
homework, and we may not have gotten along with all of them,
but in the end - they have made a difference in our lives.
Therefore, I want to end my high school journalistic experience
with a poem. Yes, I know it’s pretty sappy and un-original, but
I believe this poem truly relates to saying “thank you” to all of
our friends and educators who have touched our hearts forever.
My grandmother actually wrote the poem; when she passed
away, I was going through her things and found it written in her
high school scrapbook. When you read it, think about all of the
teachers who made a difference in your lives, the memories you
have shared with your friends, all of the times they were there
for you when you need them the most, the hard times that
brought you closer together and most of all, the memories you
made together that will last a lifetime.
Thank you, friends

Top News Stories
Casey Anthony Trial
The six week trial of Casey Anthony
brought out the worst public outrage since
the OJ Simpson trial in 1995. Even Time
magazine described the case as “the social
media trial of the century”.
Casey Anthony, a 25 year old single
mother, was charged with first degree
murder after her two-year-old daughter,
Caylee had gone missing for 31 days back
in July of 2008. Cindy Anthony, Casey’s
mother, was the one who reported Caylee
missing and claimed the Casey’s car “smelled like a dead body.” Casey
Anthony pled not guilty. Not until December 11 were Caylee’s skeletal
remains found with a blanket inside a trash bag in a wooded area near
the family home.
Between the months of May and July of 2011, all eyes were on the trial. Many protestors and others would even gather outside the court house
waving signs with pictures and statements about Caylee. The media dissected everything that happened.
Finally on July 5, the jury found Casey Anthony not guilty of first
degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter of a
child. But she was found guilty of four misdemeanor counts of providing
false information to a law enforcement officer.
The public went into a roar of rage. When Anthony was released from
custody, she had to be put under protective serves because of threats
made on her life. Most believe that she was found not guilty due to the
lack of evidence the court had. Time magazine stated, “The Casey Anthony trial offered few answers. It provided neither justice nor clarity.”
Occupy Wall Street
From the protesters in New York, L.A., and Pittsburgh to the violent
riots in Oakland, Occupy Wall Street protests swept across the nation’s
media this last year, showing America what some people think about the
wall-street bail outs.
This Epidemic began September 17, 2011, in Zuccotti Park, located in
New York City’s Wall Street financial district.
Hundreds of people showed up to support the cause, holding signs saying things such as “We are the 99%” and “Wall Street is our street.” A lot
of protests and events have taken place over the last few months, not only
in Wall Street but in city streets all over the country.
Many want to know what the Occupy Wall Street protesters stand for.
The web site states, “As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality:…
that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that
system, it is up to the individuals to
protect their own rights…We come
to you at a time when corporations,
which place profit over people, selfinterest over justice, and oppression
over equality, run our government.”
The members of this protest want
justice for what they think was a waste
of government money, the corporate
bail-outs.
The Royal Wedding
Early morning of April 29th, 2011, many Americans woke up to watch
the wedding of the century between the dashing Prince William and
Kate Middleton. All eyes were on the royal couple as they said their I
do’s.
The couple met while attending school at the University of St. Andrews
in Fife, Scotland. Many conversed over the fact that Kate was just a
“commoner” compared to the royal status of William. But their engagement on October 20, 2010, was publicly announced on November 16,
2010.
The wedding was widely broadcast on television, Internet, and radio in
as many as 180 countries. CNN, BBC, and the UK’s ITV were the main
stations that covered the ceremony. Youtube even had a channel that
had coverage of the wedding streaming live. The ceremony was viewed
live by tens of millions more around the world, including 72 million on
the YouTube Royal Channel. In the United Kingdom, television audiences peaked at 26.3 million viewers, with
a total of 36.7 million watching part of the
coverage. Over one million people lined the
streets between Westminster Abbey and
Buckingham Palace.
Now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge,
William and Kate are happily married and
living their lives still under the watchful eye
of the media.
Death of Osama Bin Laden
“Justice has been done,” President Barack
Obama said the night of May 2, 2011, as
crowds formed outside the White House
to celebrate the death of Osama Bin
Laden. Many people remember waking up
the next morning with almost every news
station covering the ground breaking story
and celebration, especially the hundreds
who waved American flags at Ground
Zero in New York.
Osama Bin Laden, the master mind
behind the horrific 9/11 plane crashes, was killed after a gunbattle with
Navy SEALs and CIA paramilitary forces at one of his compounds in
the city of Abbottabad. “The team returned to Afghanistan after, with
Bin Laden’s body,” U.S. officials said. They later reported that Bin Laden’s
body was then buried at sea.
In news of Bin Laden’s death, many are afraid that tension has been
raised between the U.S. and Bin Laden’s followers in al-Qiada. One U.S.
official from Homeland Security told MSNBC, “In the wake of this operation, there may be a heightened threat to the U.S. homeland.” They state,
“The U.S. is taking every possible precaution.”
Even with the terror alert so high, many of people are still celebrating
justice and victory to this day. Former President George W. Bush was
quoted saying this after being personally informed about Bin Laden’s
death by President Obama: “This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for
all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001...The fight against
terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message:
No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.”

Sandusky-Penn State Scandal
In 2011, PSU former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky
was arrested. He is under investigation for sexually assaulting or having inappropriate contact with at least
eight underage boys on or near university property,
dating all the way back to the 1970’s.
The investigation officially started in 1994, after several mothers came forward, reporting that their boys
had been sexually abused by Sandusky. Most of the
boys were part of a program called “The Second Mile,”
which Sandusky founded back in 1977.
In November 2011, after a long investigation, PA Attorney
General Linda Kelly indicted Sandusky on forty counts of sex
crimes against young boys. Sandusky was arrested on November
5 and charged with seven counts of involuntary deviant sexual
intercourse, as well as eight counts of corruption of minors, eight
counts of endangering the welfare of a child, seven counts of indecent assault, and other offenses.
After the media broke the story, Penn State University board of
trustees fired long-time coach Joe Paterno and President Graham
Spanier. Athletic director Tim Curley and a vice
president Gary Schultz are accused of perjury and
failing to report suspected child abuse. Both have
now stepped down from their posts.
The local response to the scandal was chaotic. After
Paterno’s rumor of firing was confirmed at a television press conference, students and non-students
protested near the Penn State campus. About 4,000
students and non-students gathered to support Paterno, with some tipping over a WTAJ news truck.
Some police officers used a “chemical spray” to disperse the
demonstrators. Approximately $200,000 in damages resulted from
the riot, and two students were sentenced to up to 23.5 months in
prison.
Penn State responded in various ways, such as removing Sandusky’s image from a mural near the college and renaming an ice
cream flavor which they had been created in his honor.
Sandusky is scheduled to go on trial sometime in June of this
year. Remember the Stars:

As spring nears, many seniors are thinking one thing, senior trip. The excitement of
thinking about being with your friends for a
whole week at the beach is simply unbearable
while sitting in class all day. Senior trip just begins of what most people say, the best summer
of their lives. The usual spot for most seniors
from Seneca to vacation at is Ocean City, MD.
However, some groups venture out and go different to different beaches. Ocean City seems to
be the number one choice because it is one of
the closest beaches to us, a nice beach, and more
than enough to do whether it’s day or night. The
first two weeks of June at OC are called “Senior
Week,” the beach is filled with seniors from all
over the east coast.
Every senior group that comes back
from Ocean City, strongly recommends going.
With the rates to rent out condos not being very
high, it’s not too hard to talk the parents into
paying. The experience is definitely worth paying the few hundred dollars to spend a whole
week with some of your best friend’s before
everyone goes their separate ways for college.
Laying out on the beach all day and exploring
the board walk at night, who wouldn’t want
seven days of that?

Fun In Florida
B a n d Tr ip

This past April, Seneca Valley
Band students packed up their
suitcases, slathered on the sunscreen, and hopped on a bus
to the Sunshine State. Many
students who attended the trip
would most likely agree that
the estimated 24 hour excruciating bus ride was totally worth
it.
This trip to Disney is extremely special to students because
the band only makes the trip
once every four years. Students
who had the chance to go on
the trip this year felt extremely
privileged. The Seneca Valley
Band traveled to Orlando,
Florida April 25 through April
30, 2012. The band departed in
the early evening to embark on
their exciting adventure to Disney World. The trip included
many activities for the students
such as a dance workshop for
the Pom Pons, parade, amusement park visits, and many
other fun filled activities. The
band stayed in the Buena Vista
Suites in Orlando. Many banders and auxiliary members
were thrilled upon arrival no
matter if it was their first time
to the Magic Kingdom or not.
The Seneca Valley Jazz Band
and Wind Ensemble attended
ajudication in Disney World.
They all did such an amazing job, and recieved superior
awards from the judges. Wind
Esemble won Best in
Class, and Jazz band finished
runner up in Best in Class.
They should be proud of their
accomplishments.
While the band members
enjoyed Epcot, the auxiliary
members attended a Disney
dance work shop. This entailed
the members of color guard
and Pom Pons going through a
fake tryout that the dancers in
the Disney shows would have
to go through. The class was
pretty intense, but still a lot of
fun and interesting to see if you
had what it takes to be a dancer
in the shows at Disney. At the
end of the workshop, the girls
got a surpirse visit from Goofy!
Another activity that the
Band members got the chance
to take part in was a parade
in Disney World. Many band
members have said that it is a
wonderful feeling to be part of
a parade and feel the energy
from the crowd, but just imagine how exciting it would be to
take part in a parade at Disney
World!
After all their hard work was
done, they got down to the
import stuff: the rides. Many
students enjoyed exciting rides
such as Sapce Mountain. This
portion of the trip was most
likely the favorite part for most
of the students.
On the return home many
students dreaded going back
to school and getting into the
normal swing of things, but
many enjoyed their time on the
trip and felt extremely lucky to
have been given such a wonderful experience. It was a trip
that no one would soon forget.

Division-1 Athletes
Alex Karika-Naval
Academy
Seneca Valley has been a dominate
powerhouse in volleyball for the last few
years. Both women and men’s volleyball
seem to be getting better every year. One
stars on the 2011 WPIAL championship
volleyball team is Alex Karika. Karika was
a senior this past season and stood out to
many recruits. So much so, she had the
opportunity to accept a scholarship for volleyball to the Naval Academy.
Karika started playing volleyball in the third grade when she lived in
Texas. Ever since she picked up a volleyball
she was addicted to the sport. Alex plays
volleyball pretty much all year round. If
it wasn’t the school season, she had club
volleyball. Alex plays on the Pittsburgh
3 Rivers Volleyball Club in the offseason.
During club volleyball she would train two
and a half hours, three times a week. During the school season she had practice five
times a week. Karika mentioned that for
school volleyball, the girls had to do a ton
of running, more than people expect them
to be doing.
Karika chose Navy over her many
other choices for a couple different reasons.
One reason was that she really liked their
coach and the team is consistently good.
Another huge reason why she chose Navy
is their academics. She is aware that Navy
is one of the best engineering schools in the
nation and that’s what she wants to major
in. When asked about her feelings on serving five years in the Navy after graduation
Karika replied with, “I am kind of nervous
about it, but I think it will be a neat experience.” Karika ended the interview with,
“Go Navy beat Army!” Everybody from the
Seneca Valley newspaper staff wishes
her good luck in her future endeavors at
Navy.
Sam Potter-University of
Washington (Rowing)
One of Seneca Valley’s rowers to
get a division 1 scholarship is Samantha
potter. Potter will be attending The University of Washington next fall to participate on the crew team. Potter visited
5 other schools and chose Washington
for a number of reasons. Washington is
completely different than Pennsylvania
with its mountainous terrain, lakes, and
pine trees. The beautiful campus scene
was a huge part in potter`s decision.
Samantha started rowing the summer
before her eighth grade year. She chose
to pick up the sport because she loved
the team atmosphere that comes with
rowing. She also thought it was cool
that she would be able to row on the
river in downtown Pittsburgh.
Samantha has a very unique job
on the crew team. She doesn’t actually
row. Samantha is the coxswain on the
team. Since she is little and loud, her
job is to steer the boat, coach, lead, and
motivate the rowers in the boat. Samantha, however, works out with the team
when they are not in the water. Samantha is a member of the Three Rivers
Rowing Association. When asked if she
had any last comments, potter replied
with, “rowing is a great sport to get
into and it teaches you many important
qualities to have in life.” She also added
that she has met some of her best friends
through rowing and it has given her
many opportunities to be grateful for.
Potter will surely succeed at her future at
Washington!
Catie Seman-University of
Rhode Island (Volleyball)
The second player to go Division-1 from the girls’ volleyball team is
Catie Seman. Seman has played volleyball
since 5th grade when she was enrolled at
St. Alphonsus and was a member of the
WPIAL championship volleyball team for
Seneca Valley. Seman will be attending
the University of Rhode Island in the fall
of 2012 and be a member of the women’s
volleyball team there.
Seman chose the University of
Rhode Island for a few different reasons.
One big reason was that she knows the
university is a good business school and
that is the field she would like pursue.
She also mentioned that she wanted to be
out of state for a change and experience
something different. When she visited the
school she really liked the coaches of the
team and the girls all seemed really nice.
Another reason why she chose Rhode
Island is because they are in the Atlantic
10 Division. “Competition in the Atlantic
10 is very competitive,” Seman mentioned
in the interview. She only plays volleyball
competitively but will play anything for
fun.
Seman does not know exactly
what she will end up doing with her future
but she mentioned she really would like to
coach volleyball, travel around the world,
and work with a successful business. She
really emphasized the fact that she would
like to stick around volleyball for as long
as she can. The future looks bright for
Catie Seman and best of luck to her at The
University of Rhode Island.
Matt Smith-University of
Georgetown
Abi Palmer-University
of Alabama (Rowing)
Abi Palmer will be attending
the University of Alabama on a scholarship for rowing. She is one of the few
athletes going Division I for a sport here
at Seneca Valley.
Abi has been rowing since
September of 2007, she was 13 years old.
When asked the question, “Why did you
start rowing?” she answered, my good
friend, Sam Potter, who is also going
Division I and will be attending the University of Washington asked her to join.
“They said they needed people who have
swam, ran cross country before, and I
did both.” Abi practices every Tuesday
to Saturday, 3 pm-7:30 pm. Due to the
fact that rowing is an Olympic sport,
I asked her about her future plans as a
rower. “If I make U23’s during college,
which is the World Championship of
rowing, then yes I will try for the Olympics!” Knowing all the great sporting teams at the University of Alabama,
there are many to choose from, such as
football, the most recent NCAA Champions, baseball, the top team in women’s
softball, and volleyball. Rowing is also
at the top of their game. When she decided Alabama, I was curious as to why
she chose it. Palmer replied “They’re
Division I, stellar program of studies,
rowing of course, and the scholarship
offer. When asked the question “What’s
the hardest part about rowing?” Palmer
replied, “What isn’t hard about rowing?
There is mental and physical pain every
day, it’s cut throat!” Congratulations and
good luck and the University of Alabama.
Matt Smith will be attending the
University of Georgetown, in Washington
DC on a scholarship for baseball.
Smith has been playing baseball
ever since he was 5 years old. When asked
the question “Why did you start playing
baseball?” he answered “I love the game
and always had a special feel for the sport;
it will always be a part of me.”
Matt is a very dedicated athlete
and player to the game, he practices 5 to
6 days a week “depending how busy I am”
says Smith. Matt has aspirations to take
his career to further levels and I asked
him what his thoughts are about it. “I am
hoping to get a degree in business from
Georgetown and continue my baseball career for as long as I can.” I also asked Smith
why he chose Georgetown: “everything
about the school felt right. The coaches,
the campus, the team, and the competition
all played a role along with the education.”
Matt has not only got offers from
Georgetown, but many other schools
as well. “Wake Forest, William & Mary,
Columbia, UPenn, Harvard, Vanderbilt,
Mount St. Mary, Davidson, Cincinnati,
Louisville, Stanford.” Smith has had many
influences on his life to make him the
player he is today, and he answered “My
parents have pushed me from the very
beginning and I am very thankful to have
them in my life.” Congratulations Matt and
good luck at the University of Georgetown.
Austin Bream-Liberty
University
Austin Bream will be attending
the Univerisity of Liberty, Virginia on a
scholarship for baseball. Liberty is also
Division I for baseball and Austin has
been more than willing to talk about his
future.
Just like all of the other kids
who have played baseball, Austin has
been playing baseball since he was
5 years old for the Zelienople T-ball
League. When asked the question “Why
did you start playing baseball?” he replied, “because my dad and brothers installed the game into my system. Baseball
is all I have ever known.” Austin is also
a member of the varsity baseball team
and has been for two years. I asked him
“How many days a week he practices?”
“Besides practicing for Seneca, I try to
go hit and field with my dad at least 4-5
times a week.”
In order for Austin to follow
his dad’s and brothers’ footsteps, he has
some future plans. “I have an ultimate
goal, and that is to play professional
baseball.” Liberty has had a tradition in
the Bream household. His mother, dad,
and brother have all gone to Liberty. I
asked Austin why did he choose Liberty.
“Because my dad played there and so
did my brother. It has pretty much been
the school my whole family has gone to.”
Austin has had many influences on his
life, but only a couple really stand out,
“My dad and my brother, both were there
to support me and give me the insight
needed to become a better player.” I
asked Bream if he is ready enough to
carry the “Bream Tradition” at Liberty?
“I cannot wait! I have a lot to live up to
but I think I can do it.”

Top Five Hangouts and
Restarurants By Mitchell Schall
3.) Ross Park Mall
Now for our 3rd place finisher, I chose Ross
Park Mall for a good solid couple of reasons. Like
how basically whenever you get bored on a Friday night, or even a Saturday night, you and your
friends can go all the way up in that North Allegheny
Tiger territory, and do some nice, relaxing shopping,
as well as you will be able to grab some food while
you’re enjoying your endless hours of shopping with
your girlfriend or even your best buddies.
1.) Kountry Kitchen
I chose the KK as my number one hangout and restaurant because of a couple of good
qualities. One, it has great food for very affordable
prices. So that means High Schoolers who are tight
on money and want to go before school and grab a
good breakfast can certainly get one here.
4.) Eat N Park
As well as another good reason it is number
one is everyone in the hallways is talking about the
KK and how awesome it is so since it was so popular, it just had to be number one!
2.) Nextier Stadium
For my number two pick, I say it was a strong two, maybe even a one in someone else’s top five,
but the KK was just too strong. Anyway for my number two pick I chose Nextier Stadium, and here
is why. During the fall season, Nextier Stadium is the place to be on a Friday night, supporting your
favorite High School football team, as well you can grab an ice cold drink, some good snacks, and of
course hangout with your friends. Now you may be wondering why is this number one then. Well here
is why! One, it is only the place to be during the fall season with soccer games, football games. Well
what happens in the winter? No one is there anymore until the spring which there is of course lacrosse
or track and field. That’s its only downfall that’s why it is not number one because of the fact you can’t
have fun there all year round.
5.) Moe’s
Eat “N” Park was my number four choice, it was
a strong candidate for the top three but there was just
no way it could have beaten out Ross Park Mall for the
number three spot, but as a number four it still has a lot
of good things to it...like how whenever you get bored
and your either having a sleepover with your friend or
your girlfriends, and if you are eighteen and you get
those midnight munchies. Everyone can go get a very
cheap and delicious meal over at Eat “N” Park.
Finally, at the number five seed, or last place we
have Moe’s. Now I bet some of you guys are like what
how he could put Moe’s at number five!?
Moe’s was my number five seed because of a good
couple of reasons. Yes they do have delicious handmade
Mexican food, but it is very expensive! I mean we already
have to pay for gas and car insurance, and our girlfriends,
or boyfriends, and yes those lovely iPhone bills as well.
Moe’s is just too expensive to go there all the time but it
is still one of the top hangout spots among Seneca Valley
students.
