A guide for the Nov. 21 edition of The Bona Venture

News editor Hannah Gordon covered the steam release that set off the smoke detector in Shay and Loughlen halls Wednesday morning. The incident was similar to one that occurred in Devereux Hall earlier this semester, also causing evacuation. Link: http://www.thebvnewspaper.com/2014/11/20/steam-triggers-fire-alarm/

Features staff writer Nicole DiMura profiles Megan Pockalny – the young Special Olympic athlete who sang the national anthem at the women’s basketball opener against Canisius Nov. 14. Pockalny suffers from Down syndrome and has participated in Unified Special Olympic events at St. Bonaventure in the past. Link: http://www.thebvnewspaper.com/2014/11/20/singin-the-dream/

In the opinion section, features editor Amelia Kibbe argues that Christmas “season” is too long and is overtaking Thanksgiving. She feels that Black Friday sales starting on Thursday morning ruins Thanksgiving and takes away from a family-centered event. Link: http://www.thebvnewspaper.com/2014/11/20/leave-room-for-turkey/

Assistant sports editor Pat Tintle pulled double duty this week as he covered both the men’s and women’s basketball team’s losses.

The men’s team dropped its second consecutive Franciscan Cup game to Siena, 73-70. The team trailed by double digits for much of the game, which Coach Mark Schmidt blamed on over-aggressiveness stemming from a lack of experience.

The women’s team also fell to 1-1 after being blown out by James Madison on the road. Both teams will be back in action this week, looking to move back above .500.

About End Kwote

So, this is me. My name is Andrew Bevevino, and I'm currently a sophomore in college. I'm majoring in Strategic Communications and Digital Media. What do I wana do? I really have no idea. I'll let you guys know when I figure it out. I love finding inspiration in places that no one would ever think to look. People, places, pictures, anywhere and anything. These things - or kwotes, as I call them - are the stuff that my blog consists of. What else...well, I live in a tiny town. Even though I've grown up in a rural setting, I'm a city kid at heart. Hopefully, somday, I'll be in a big city (please, God, New York City) doing something that I love. Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoy the posts to come
