March 7, 2013 J The Lovell Chronicle I 3 Speech and debate team members Cole Moncur and Dylan May perform their duet Sweeney Todd at Lovell Elementary School on Tuesday evening. The two have worked together to perfect their performance over many months andhave done well in the speech and debate competitions all season. Moncur places sixth at Buffalo tourney BY PATTI CARPENTER The speech and debate team traveled to Buffalo Feb. 22-23 to compete in their last tournament before Districts. Cole Moncur and Dylan May made it to the semi-finals with their duet. Moncur placed sixth in poetry. The boys have put a considerable amount of effort into their presentations and have done well in the competitions this year. Jessica Emmett and Bailey Dugan competed in the Lincoln-Douglas debate, which is one of the more challenging com- petitions of any tournament. "The LDs are now beginning to win rounds for the first time," said Coach Deb Fink. "It is one of the most difficult compe- titions because they have to be able to de- bate both the negation and affirmative side of a topic or resolution." Fink.noted that LD ,is,much more time, consuming than some the, other, cat- egories becau the topic changes every month, requiring the student to constantly research and develop both sides of an issue with sometimes only a week or two of prep- aration before a competition. The topic for the LD competition in Buffalo asked the question, "Is the United States justified in interfering with internal political processes in another country." The entire team gave a special perfor- mance on Tuesday night in the Lovell El- ementary School gym, where they show- cased their work for family and friends for the first time this year. Many of the stu- dents performed pieces they will be per- forming at Districts in Riverton this week- end and at State in Rock Springs, March 14-16. Some of the students have been per- fecting the same pieces for more than a year. Mikayla Thompson performed her po- etry. Mary Schwope gave an explanation of what student congress is all about. Jes- sica Emmett performed an extemporane- ous piece. Marie Cruz kept the audience in stitches with a humorous piece about a cheerleader. Moncur and May performed a duet. Colton Wardell and Andrew Mayes performed a duet, as well. Dugan demon- strated an LD performance. Moncur per- formed a dramatic.piece, Wray.Krei an ora-= tory and Wardell a humorous piece. Coach Fink presented awards to team members and said she was very pleased with how hard the group has worked on their performances this season and how well they have done at competitions. She said she has very high expectations for how the students will perform at the State and Regional competitions. commun United Blood Services will hold the Lovell community blood drive on Monday, March 11, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., at the Lovell Fire Dept. auxiliary hall, 314 Nevada Ave. Po- tential donors must be at least 16 (with parental consent form for 16 - 17 year olds), weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health and bring picture identification.

Taekwondo classes to begin in April in Lovell BY SAM SMITH The Lovell Recreation District will be offering tae- kwondo classes beginning Monday, April 1, from 5:15 to 6 p.m. at the Lovell Recreation Building on Main Street - the former B&G Lumber building. According to teacher Stacy Southworth, taekwondo is a Korean martial art that focuses on kicking and punching and also has instruction in self-defense. "It's also affiliated with the World Taekwondo Federa- tion, which is the organization that does Olympic style tae- kwondo," Southworth said. The Lovell Recreation District started teaching tae- kwondo classes locally in 1995 with master instructor Chris Ivanoff, then stopped offering the class in 2002, Southworth said. Southworth will be teaching the course this year along with Robert Hunt, who will continue after the seven-week introductory course. "If students complete the introductory course and con- tinue with the program, they'll be given the opportunity to achieve different ranks in taekwondo," Southworth said. "There are eight ranks before the black belt starting with white belt, two yellow, two green, two blue and two red. On average it takes about four to six years to get black belt, which is a lot of work, but you'll feel like you earned it when you get it." Southworth is a second-degree black belt and is certi- fied by the World Taekwondo Federation, along with Hunt, who is a third-degree black belt. Master instructor Ivanoff, who teaches in Powell, is a sixth-degree black belt "We will be working on strengthening the body, flex- ibility, breathing concentration, kicking and hand tech- niques," Southworth said. "I'm interested in teaching taekwondo because it brings something different to the community for kids and adults who are interested in dif- ferent things besides basketball, football and volleyball." Southworth added the class will hold competitions against other schools. RECYCLE THIS NEWSPAPER r'OMING CERT is about readiness.
