Inductees 'H ma Q ai. Under the direction of our new English teacher, Miss Kelley, the Comet's Tale Staff had a fun-filled and exciting year. They visited the Pulaski Democrat on a field trip and sold M8:Ms for their activity. One reason for M8:Ms sales was to cover the cost of print- ing the Comet's Tale, which, starting with the December issue was laid out and com- pleted by Staff members.
Spe- cial features this year included a 'Dear Comet's Tale' advice column, extensive music coverage, and a brand- new skiing column for winter issues. Each day started at with breakfast, followed by classes in which the students learned how to put together their newspaper or yearbook.
There was an hour lunch break followed by more class- es. Although the work was hard, there was a lot of free time spent in fun. Find and Search Yearbooks Online Today!

Washington passed away only fourteen years before my birth. Lafayette visited this country in , the year sister was born. Years later I was in Canada and a lady of my acquaintance bought some plates in Kingston that had the landing of Lafayette in New York on them and her husband was so mad he would not eat from them.
The first steamboat on Lake Ontario was long since my remembrance. From these low beginnings I have witnessed marvelous growths. Oceans are traversed by steam. The iron horse speeds its way from Maine to California in a marvelous short time. Allow me my friends to mention the things that science has wrought in the medical world. Years ago in performing a surgical operation no anesthetics were known. Patients had to succumb to the keen strokes of the knife until agony was too great to be endured and would sink beneath the fearful shock.
I imagine that the next fifty years will not witness as many improvements as the last unless it is in electricity. I have lived under the rule of eighteen presidents and the most vigorous campaign I ever witnessed was when William Henry Harrison was elected in I had eight brothers and sisters, five of whom are laid at rest; forty cousins, mostly gone, only one older than I am.
If sorrow has overtaken me I have ever seen in it the hand of a loving Father and when the dark clouds passed away I could see a silver lining. When the War of broke out, the people of Sandy Creek, being on the immediate frontier, were kept in a continual tremor. Robbins recounts the exciting scene which occurred one summer Sabbath, when the people had gathered at Mr. Immediately all was confusion, men hurrying away to get their arms, children crying, and women shuddering with terror at the thought of the Indians, whose presence was always taken for granted when British troops appeared at that time.
Again and again the militia was called out to repel an attack on Sackets Harbor. There was probably not a man in town of sufficient age that did not perform considerable military service during the two and a half years that the war lasted. Smith Dunlap was captain of the militia company from that section; Nicholas Gurley was lieutenant, Samuel Dunlap ensign and Reuben Hadley orderly sergeant.
Late in April , Colonel Mitchell, with a small body of infantry, came marching along the Old Salt Road on their way to defend Oswego from a threatened attack. A few days later came the news that the defense had been unsuccessful and Oswego had been captured. For a while rumors flew thick and fast. The next morning messengers came hurrying through the country; informing everyone that Woolsey had run up big Sandy Creek, in Ellisburg, that the British were about to follow, and urging all to come to the rescue.
The militia were speedily mustered and hastened to the scene of the expected conflict, but none of them arrived the thunder of cannon which startled the whole town from the shore of the lake to the slopes of the Boylston hills, and in the northern part the rattle of small arms could be distinctly heard. The militia, on their arrival, found that every man of the assailing force had been killed or captured. When the vessel had been equipped and sent to Sea the British Commander was willing to take a retired position, and the Americans along the lake felt less anxiety about a hostile incursion.
It is with extreme regret we have to acquaint the public with the unfortunate result of a gallant enterprise by the boats of our squadron on Lake Ontario, under the command of Capts. Parties were landed on each side of the creek and proceeded together with the boats, without opposition, to within about a quarter of a mile from the enemy, when suddenly a considerable force, consisting of riflemen, nearly Indians and a numerous body of militia and cavalry attacked and soon overpowered our small party whose gallant resistance to such numbers proving unavailing, a surrender became indispensible to save our brave men from certain death.
Our loss on the occasion was 19 killed and 50 wounded. Cox and Kagh, of the marines are severely wounded. The boats also fell into the hands of the enemy. The British controlled the waters of eastern Lake Ontario toward the end of the War of , thus preventing our ships from sailing out of the harbors.
Apparently forearmed with knowledge of the impending attack, our soldiers and some friendly Oneida Indians concealed barges loaded with supplies for ships at Sackets Harbor, in the willows along the stream. When the cannon in the British lead boat failed to fire, the British were overpowered by our ambush and soon waved a white flag of surrender.
At Sackets Harbor the Americans were building a new warship called The Superior that could carry men. Shannon Nicole Corbett Kelsy A. Leylani M. Longamore Zachary T. Martin Indigo J. Vazquez Antonio S. Wilson Ashley Ruth Ann Wolbersen. Sara J. Dority Zayin S.
