FC earns check from Dick's Sporting Goods


Franklin Central is presented a $1,000 check by Dick's Sporting Goods resulting from a challenge tied to Central Indiana schools participating in the KeyBank Tipoff Classic last November in Conseco Fieldhouse. FC fans utilized more coupons at the retail store's outlets than the other schools (Brownsburg, Carmel, Cathedral, Martinsville and Park Tudor) in the season-opening boys' basketball headliner. FC's athletic director, Brian Avery, and Flashes' cheerleaders acknowledge the presentation being made by Kelly Winkler, community marketing coordinator at Dick's Sporting Goods at Greenwood Park Mall.

FTMS ANNUAL SCIENCE FAIR

Cacia Brewer named 'Grand Champion'

Franklin Township Middle School student Cacia Brewer asked a science question that was fit for a Crime Scene Investigation television show: Do different types of floor surfaces affect the diameter of blood splatter?

She answered the question with an eyedropper and a fake kind of blood used in theater productions. She let droplets fall on carpet, marble, vinyl, wood and slate. She found that "blood" splattered widest on marble but it spread least on the absorbent carpet.

As a result, she was named Grand Champion of the annual Franklin Township Middle School Science Fair.

"I was always interested in a career in forensics so I did a project that was practical," said Cacia, 14, the daughter of Roger and Anna Logan.

"I've always loved CSI and Bones and all those kind of TV shows," she said. "I just like the aspect of how they use technology to solve crimes and how they just think about why and what happened in a crime."

She plans to seek a career in forensics or as a doctor of sports medicine.

The annual fair for eighth-graders had 459 projects presented in two categories: 110 were in the biological division and 349 were in the physical division.

Logan Modlin was named Reserve Grand Champion of the Physical Division for "Electromagnets: The Strength is in the Turn of a Wire." Logan , 13, is the son of Joe and Cynthia Modlin.

Aaron Stevenson was named Reserve Grand Champion of the Biological Division for his project "Can Your Handle It?" Aaron, 14, is the son of Eric and Joni Stevenson.

Other projects included "Choir Nerds versus Band Geeks" which showed that the lung capacity of choir members was larger than that of band members. "How Fast Are You" concluded that the reflexes of young males was quicker than older males.

Student Edith Jones, 13, mummified a chicken. Breanna Vaught, 14, and partner Cassie Purcell, 13, tested the flammability of various fabrics. Ankica Zuback, 13, and Sierra Broadstreet, 14, found that color candles use more oxygen and burn faster than white candles. Joshua Hanson, 14, determined that a baseball will curve more if it's spinning when thrown.

Kailie Austin, 14, wearing blue and white paint on her face to celebrate the Colts' Super Bowl victory, tested the melting speed of salt and sugar on ice. She found it would take an extra day to melt ice on a driveway if sugar was used.

FC teachers display 'the Manning mustache'


These Franklin Central teachers may lack the "laser rocket arm" of quarterback Peyton Manning but they each have a mustache - as Manning does while starring in Sprint commercials - to show support for the Indianapolis Colts at Super Bowl XLI. Teachers decorated their classroom doors and hallways on Friday, February 2, to spark Coach Tony Dungy and the Colts to "Git-R-Dungy" and beat the Chicago Bears. In the Sprint advertising campaign's TV spot, Manning wears a poorly designed wig and a stick-on mustache and tells fans they can use NFL Mobile to track their favorite player or team, ". maybe like Peyton Manning's team, maybe," he suggests. The school's winning hallway belonged to the Special Education Department, which transfored a hall into a football field with bleachers for the Colts and Bears. The winning door was at teacher Sharon Jackson's class. Other teams, like the English Department, decorated doors named after books as in "To Kill a Mockingbear" and "The Great Dungy" (Gatsby that is). Submitted photo.
