As the 2008-2009 school year comes to an end, many people just look forward to summer as a way to relax, catch up on lost sleep, and most importantly have fun. That is the stereotypical summer, however does that accurately represent the actual students and teachers summer? I interviewed two students and one teacher from Logan to find out what they are actually going to be doing over summer, and exactly how much they truly will miss the school year.
Question: What about the 2008-2009 school year will you miss the most?
Kristine Le, sophomore,
said, "I'm going to miss my friends that are graduating this year because although I will see them from time to time, it will never be the same. I'll also miss this years tennis season because I made varsity this year and it brought me closer to my team."

During this past week, Logan's Forensic Science class was MIA from school as they had two field trips.
In Forensic Science, (also known as CSI), juniors and seniors learn different aspects of the crime solving industry. They are taught how to solve various crimes using DNA samples such as hair, fingerprints, blood that humans naturally leave behind at crime scenes. Students also learn how victims died, and how suspects executed their crimes. Led by Ms. Panico, the Forensic Science class uses the information they comprehend through out the year in order to solve virtual crime scenes created by their teacher.

and Tawab Fakhri at the Ball.
May 23, 2009, marked the highlight of the year for many James Logan seniors for it was the day that several twelfth graders attended the Senior Ball.
Although this dance was held on a very prestigious cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge, with a gourmet buffet and unlimited beverages, these tangible benefits were not the main factors that made the dance worth the price.
Jenelle Gallardo, a senior and Courier staffer who attended the dance believed, It gave memories, experiences, and time with our fellow classmates. In addition, senior and fellow Courier writer Sandhaya Mansfield shares a similar opinion with Gallardo for Mansfield responded that, It gave us the chance to have one last good dance with our graduating class. The night was full of fun and made great memories.

Philip Kearny, Jr.,
(June 2, 1815 September 1, 1862) was a United States Army officer, notably in the Mexican-American War and American Civil War. He was killed in action in the 1862 Battle of Chantilly.
Kearny was born in New York City to a wealthy family. His father and mother were Philip Kearny, Sr., and Sarah Watts. His maternal grandfather, Robert Watts, and his great-grandfather, John Watts, were some of New York's wealthiest residents, who had vast holdings in ships, mills, factories, banks, and investment houses. Kearny's father, was a Harvard educated New York City financier who owned his own brokerage firm and was also a founder of the New York Stock Exchange. Early in life, Kearny desired a career in the military. His parents died when he was young, and he was consequently raised by his grandfather, who insisted against the younger Kearny's wishes that he pursue a law career. Kearny attended Columbia College, attaining a law degree in 1833. His cousin John Watts de Peyster, who later penned an authoritative biography on Kearny, also attended Columbia.
