A friend saved 17 year old Ryan Sconyers after falling off a boat ladder, where he received a head injury and lost four fingers. While fishing out on the Mississippi River near Prairie du Chien on Saturday, Sconyers climbed out of his boat into a barge. Eventually making his way back to the boat, he began climbing but soon fell from the boat’s ladder. He fell into the water, receiving tremendous injuries on the way down.
Reb was about 6’3, muscular yet skinny at the same time, pale skin. His hair was brown and his eyes were brownish with tints of green in them. Wearing a red muscle shirt and no jacket, he wore the same things as Caine. Both noticing this, they both bursted into laughter and hugged. “It’s been awhile, brother.”
The story I wish to share this week for the written assignment is The Cremation of Sam McGee by Robert W. Service. The story is about a man named Sam McGee and his quest for riches during the gold rush along trail in the frozen Yukon Territory. As he traveled with his best friend Cap, he spent a great deal of time whining and complaining about how ever since he left his home in Tennessee he had been cold. Many nights Cap had to endure the same conversation revolving around this topic.
Introduction Being a nearly lifelong resident of Ozark Mountains of Missouri, I have always been fascinated by the many interesting legends and tales that have been shared with me by many of the various characters that I have had the opportunity of meeting over the years. Tales of the Civil War, lost Spanish Treasure Caves, Notorious Outlaws, Bushwhackers and many fascinating characters that once roamed these ancient hills and hollers. Some of my favorites are stories that transpired along a stretch of road that folks here in the Ozarks refer to as the “Old Wire Road.” What we now refer to as the “Old Wire Road,” wasn’t always a road, but rather a series of ancient trails used for migration and trade by several Indian tribes over many generations.

. Most of my childhood friends weren’t so lucky. Many died young and some have been in and out of prison, fighting addiction. I reached out in my twenties to a close friend who is in prison and we are still in touch, I know I am the only constant person in his life.

I search for any signs of movement, walking carefully with trembling hands.
Off and On I, Kevin Sandersons, am not a genius. I simply am determined to succeed in my future, yet my grades and actions in class imply the future Einstein is present, according to my classmates. But that’s not how I visualize myself. I’m 13 years old and I live in Charleston, SC.
Into The Woods Terrance Spruill Jr. or “T”, was the monster under my bed with eyes burning filled with hatred and a soul too dark to imagine. He was the boy who remained deadly silent, unless an insult or two wanted to roll off his tongue and strike a victim with embarrassment and shame. His emotions were portrayed through his dark brown eyes that carried an everlasting glare, drilling a hole through anyone’s coursing heart. T was that one 9 year-old that many were too fearful of to approach.
