Hello from California

Posted by dogtrax on October 26, 2006

Hello to the Youth Radio community! We would like to share a bit about our community – Sacramento, California. Our school, Arthur C. Butler, is actually located a little south of Sacramento in an area called Elk Grove. We’re just about mid-way between San Francisco and Lake Tahoe. Today’s podcast is our first, and we are looking forward to many more.

    Here in Massachusetts, it is super cold. Just this morning,it was 25 degrees farenheit! I can’t believe that it is 80 degrees farenhiet where you guys (and girls) are. How hot is it in the summer over there?
    Oh yea, I almost forgot about Quittich! It is a very exciting fast paced game. If you havn’t read Harry Potter, you probably don’t know what Quittich is, but if you have read it, you will have heard of Quittich. Well, there are two seekers, one for each team, that are trying to catch foxtails that people from the sidelines throw in a plastic bucket to score points. There are two, again one on each team, beaters that are trying to throw soft foam balls at people and the people that get hit have to kneel down or 5 seconds. Chasers try to throw a ball in a goal
    The keeper trys to defend the goal.
    well, tata for now!

    Hi, Ethan this is Erika. Well panning for gold is when you go to a freezing cold river and with you, you have a pan and a cradle. When you have all your tools you go down to the river, put your pan in the water, and start scooping up rocks and maybe even gold! And for your govenor, well he’s ok. But he is very funny because he has a funny accent.

  21. erika said

    Hi this is Crystal from Butler in california. I was wondering who’s your governer in massachusetts?

  25. Devon!!! : ) said

    TO : ERIKA

    HI this is Devon. There are normally snow storms all winter with up to 7 inches of snow. I am mad because it has not snowed much yet. The most snow that we have had is less than 1 centimeter. I mean, how would you feel if there was snow where you are and suddenly, one year there wasn’t really any!~!~!~!~!~! It makes me reallllllllly ANGRY!~!~! Well, anyways it is 75-90 degrees farenheit normallt in summer here. it surprised me when you said that it was 90-100 degrees there!


    What weather is it for all of your different seasons?

    What kind of trees do you decorate on christmas?

    What do you do for fun?

    How often do you go to the beach?

    What different sports do you play?

    Have you ever seen snow?

    Do most of you have pools?

    What pets are common?

    Are there any sport type things that your school has made up that you play?
