WOOSTER — Dawn Cazzolli’s job is stressful. She is the executive director of the Wayne County Children’s Advocacy Center, which looks into allegations of sexual and severe physical abuse. “It’s stressful and people get burned out, but when you look around the table, there’s people who are just as passionate about child safety and child welfare,” she said. “I think of it as a calling.” To help Cazzolli recharge, she, her husband, Andy, and their children, Greyson, 15, and Sophia, 13, like to go camping, “into nature where birds are singing, where I feel the breeze, to bike, hike and see so many flowers.
Summer’s Best Event My summer’s best event was going walleye fishing in Canada. Walleye fishing in Canada was summer’s best event because it was a fun-filled experience, it was my first time walleye fishing, and it was my first time to Canada. The most fun thing that I did this summer was going on a vacation to Canada for fishing.
Ever get into high school and wonder what sport you're going to play? Basketball, volleyball, or football. Maybe a high schooler doesn't want to play those sports. Ever think of high school rodeo? For several reasons and many more, rodeo should be a high school sport.
Many people think of rodeos being a bunch of hillbillies riding cows around in a big circle. To many people it is an every weekend thing that the family does together. Rodeos are not just for younger age men that are fit. Rodeos are for the whole family. There is stuff for all ages of people to do at a rodeo.
The summer of 2017 is the best summer that I have ever had. Since the last two summers were not the greatest, due to the events that happened, this summer was easy to enjoy. Over summer, I spent most of my time in a boat, either fishing or bowfishing. The sport of bowfishing is shooting trash fish, nasty, slimy carp and alligator gar, with a bow. The arrow of the bow is attached to a string that can be reeled back into a spool.
Some people believe that rodeo is not a sport, but I believe that it is more intense than baseball, football, basketball, and anything else that tie into that matter. There is rodeo all over the world. From Brazil to Arizona, there are athletes that compete all around to win money and buckles. When people think about rodeo, the three main events that they think of are bull riding, barrel racing, and roping. Each event in competed in all over the world.
The art of roping has been around for years and years. It is a skill that has been passed down from generation to generation. Around 150 years ago, this skill was widely known and used in the U.S.A. Cowboys roamed the plains gathering, chasing and branding cattle. They did all this with a rope in their hand or around a set of cow’s horns. Eventually cowboys wanted to test their skills against neighboring cowboys and that is how rodeos were born.
As my senior year in High School is nearing its end, I still have a few important goals to accomplish. I want to get fives on my three AP tests (Calculus BC, Chemistry, and Physics C), so I can go into college with some credit for my intended major chemical engineering. I also want to learn as much as I can in these last couple months to better myself for the future. My final academic goal is to finish the year off with all A’s. I want to finish my senior year as strong as my past years.
