The 2017 Salisbury Turkey Launch

By Jack Kubinec

 

The tradition that has been making Salisbury great since 1995 had returned, and sadly no records were broken. Three groups competed, with the furthest distance being around 34 yards and the other two being only around five yards. The three machines built to launch these turkeys were diverse, one being a trebuchet, a slingshot, and a catapult. The record of about 90 yards was set not too long ago, but the same type of machine brought success to the furthest launch this year.

Don’t Ruin Thanksgiving!

By Brett Minnick

Thanksgiving is a joyous time of year where the crisp air and bountiful amounts of food bring together friends and family.  For many of us, it can be a nightmare.  We all love our friends and family but the idea of finding discussion topics with people we barely ever see, except for holiday occasions, can be dangerous.  Quickly, an argument can break out ruining the evening for all.  Politics are the primary threat where even mentioning the names Trump Clinton or Obama will result in catastrophic consequences.  The simple fix is don’t talk about politics but if you feel a need to or want to participate in a conversation, choose some neutral politicians and countries that will make you sound well informed.
