VO; Good evening Rams, I’m your host Sachiko Jayaratne and today on our headlines one of the top story is the gas leak at coppola high school.




VO; our regular evacuation route takes us to the football field, but that’s downwind from the pool and in the open air, so we moved everyone to the mall. The kids enjoyed the break but are worried about their exams.


VO; Some Students were devastated by the sound of the alarm, Here’s 11th-grader Rosie Paulino describing her situation;



VO; I was right in the middle of my chemistry final when the alarm sounded and the principal came on over the loudspeaker sounding a little nervous. He said something like ‘This is not a drill.’


VO; The maintenance guys who caused this mess should be forced to pay. Do you know how long I studied for my algebra final? And, what?  Now instead of raising my grade I’m sitting in a food court eating French fries and wasting my time. This is so stupid.




Feature Story

He talks about golf, and only golf – 18 years with the sport by his side, since
the day he started to walk.
David Ravetto, a freshman business management manager, left his home in France to come to
Texas Wesleyan. Although he had the opportunity to attend other colleges, David combined his
golf techniques with his academic skills along to earn a better scholarship at Wesleyan.
“I was not worried about moving to Texas,” he said. “Being on the Wesleyan golf team is by far
the best decision I’ve made as a golf player.”
And David is quite the exceptional golf player, known for winning the individual national title
for the golf team. His immense hard work reflects both on the course and in the classroom.
“Golf has been major part of my life,” David said. “It all started when my grandfather
participated in a few competitions during his high school years in France.”
David as not come across a better golf team than the one he’s found at Wesleyan. He enjoys
playing with the diverse group of international students that make up the team.
“The golf team has athletes from all over the world.” He said. “I enjoy my time here, and what’s
important is that I get to work with a large number of international student athletes.”
Head Coach Bobby Cornett enjoys having David on the team as much as he enjoys being a part
of it.
“He is one of the most humble and best golf players the team has received so far,” Cornett said.
“His potential and skills are of a very young star that is rising to be a successful athlete.”
But David has impressed more than just his coach. He has also impressed his teammates, like
Leo Mathard, a sophomore business management major.
“David is one of the best team players I’ve worked with,” Leo said. “His work has influenced me
to be motivated and follow my dreams as a successful golf player.”
Leo grew up with David in France, and has competed in many competitions with David. To Leo,
David is more of a brother than a friend.
“David has a tendency to drive you in the right direction, regardless if it golf or not,” Leo said.
“He is definitely a pusher.”

Their six years of friendship help keep both of them from feeling homesick, Leo said.
“I usually stay in Texas for Christmas break,” he said. “With David around, I could never ask for
a better companion.”
Coming from the same country makes it easier for them to stay in touch with doing what they
love the most, which is golf.
“Golf would’ve been boring without David,” Mathard said. “Practicing with him makes practice
more fun and interesting.”
