We all love our pets: whether it be a bird, dog, or a ferret- every pet holds a special place in its owner’s heart. The Cardinal Chronicle talked to a few EHS students about their pets, and here is what they have to say.
Megynn Porter has 10 pets all together. She has many different types of pets- From horses, to cats, dogs, and rabbits! Megynns favorite pets are her horses- which are 17&18 years old!
Another EHS student with many different pets is JJ Alden. JJ has 39 pets all together! His favorite of his pets are his dogs. He has 6 dogs, 2 horses, 19 goldfish, and 12 cats. Both of his horses are over 15 years of age.
Brooke Chandler and her family have many pets at their house. Along with having 2 dogs and 4 cats, the chandlers also own a chicken farm! Brooke says that her favorite of all of her pets would have to be her oldest pet: a cat, Snowball.
Lastly, the Cardinal Chronicle spoke with the Ruff siblings. They have one dog, Wendy, and five fish. The only sibling that likes the fish is Jack Ruff. Wendy is 7 years old, and very cute! Wendy is the clear favorite of the household.
All in all, everybody loves their pet- no matter how old, and no matter how small.

“Obstacles are the things we see when we take our eyes off our goals.” -Unknown.
Many students participating in 2018 EP track and field will be fulfilling their goals this track season. February 20th was the first day of practice for both the boy and the girl track teams.
The boys are being coached by Jonathan Schlagheck, Tom Green, and David Bomleny. We wish the coaches and boys good luck this season!
I spoke with Levi Cole , a high jumper, about how he wants his season to go. Levi stated that his main goal for this season is to jump a height of 6’7 or higher.
The girls are being coached by Liz Green, Lindsey Milem, and Stacey Bomleny. Guidance from these coaches will bring these girls far!
I was able to talk to hurdler Brooke Chandler about the girls’ season so far. Brooke said that the beginning has been slightly tough, due to the limited time before their first meet. However, she is confident that once the season gets going things will be easier all around.
Both the boys and girls teams are focused on the rest of this season, and our community looks forward to seeing their accomplishments!
