Westfield High School (Westfield, Indiana)

Westfield High School is a public high school located in Westfield, north of Indianapolis. Westfield High School is part of the Westfield Washington School District, is abbreviated as "WHS." The shamrock was chosen to represent the school's athletic teams due to the significant population of Quakers living in the community who preferred a nonviolent mascot. From 1968, up until 1997, the school was on the south side of Hoover Street; the former high school is still standing, forms the west end of Westfield Middle School. Before the old high school was built, WHS was located by S. R. 32, east of U. S. 31. This school at one time served grades Kindergarten and 7-12. In 1970, the auditorium and gymnasium were burnt down; the school still served as the junior high, although there was no gym. A new middle school was built in 1976. In the fall of 1997, the school relocated to its current location at the intersection of Hoover and Union Streets, just north of the old school. In 2014, Riverview Health agreed to pay $1.5 million over 10 years for the naming rights to Westfield High School's football stadium.

On April 23, 2015, 16 students were injured as the stage in the school's auditorium collapsed during a concert. The story gained national media attention. On August 21, 2015, Westfield High School opened its new $7.5 million stadium to the public for their first home game. Which they won 38-21 against Harrison. Westfield athletic teams, nicknamed the Shamrocks, compete in the Hoosier Crossroads Conference. WHS is a 4A school in Indiana's class system for athletics, except for football, in which Westfield is a 6A school.

In an English language interview with Hungarian news website The Budapest Beacon, Bokros criticized Matolcsy for being a political appointee who knows nothing about monetary economics. Felcsuti said of Matolcsy, "To suggest, he has a view, very critical of the neoliberal economic school. It’s Keynesian, he doesn't believe in the market and he believes much more in the government that guides or directs the market. I’ll say that much about him; these are things that can be said within the frame of academic debate."According to the verdict of the Supreme Court of Hungary it can be said that György Matolcsy stole public money.

St Vincent College

St Vincent College is a co-educational sixth form college located in Gosport, England. The majority of students come from the surrounding towns including Gosport, Fareham and Winchester; the nearby Gosport Ferry link with Portsmouth allows students from that city to attend. The college has around 1,200 full-time students. St Vincent Secondary School opened in 1975 on the site of Forton Barracks, known after 1927 as HMS St. Vincent, with most of the historic buildings of its former Naval existence having been subsequently demolished. In 1987 Gosport Sixth Form College opened as part of the re-organisation of secondary education in the town; the college shared the site with St Vincent Secondary School, but when the school's final Year 11 left in 1990, the present title was adopted. There is a small museum on the site that has a number of artefacts and pictures of the site's time as a naval establishment, although it opens only on the last Friday of each month during term time; the college is represented by a hockey team, football team, netball team and an ultimate team named ThunderSnatch.

Sports facilities include a full sized Astro turf based pitch. The campus hosts a gym for the use of local community, it was announced in November 2008 in the local press that St Vincent will remain an independent sixth form college. The Gosport community and Principal and students of the college fought hard to keep the college open; the initial Learning and Skills Council proposal was on the basis of a consensual merger between the two institutions. Merger talks broke down in the late summer of 2007 when significant differences of opinion over the suitability of the former HMS Daedalus site for a £40 million'super college' for the Gosport and Fareham area emerged. St Vincent pulled out of the proposed merger, but the local LSC decided to pursue a forced merger between the two colleges. St Vincent fought a high-profile national campaign to fight this. By the early summer of 2008 it became apparent that the LSC did not have the necessary powers required to secure a forced merger and the plan was scrapped in the autumn.

In November 2008 both colleges were inspected by Ofsted and each was given an overall'good' grade. Every year St. Vincent college has a boat race in the lake, situated to the rear of the grounds, it is between members of the engineering courses and does not always go to plan. In the Summer of 2010, St. Vincent College opened its doors to the public to show off the musical talent from students past and present featuring the headline act of Throw Back; the event was called the "St. Vincent Gig on the Grass Festival" and it pulled in crowds of around 500 people and was shown to be a huge success with many of the acts being asked to return for 2011.

Christowell: a Dartmoor tale is a three-volume novel by R. D. Blackmore published in 1882, it is set in the fictional village of Christowell on the eastern edge of Dartmoor. The title derives from the village of Christow on Dartmoor. Although Blackmore was keen to point out that "Christow is not my Christowell: though I took the name from it... my Christowell is a compound of several places." The complex and picturesque life which goes on in the parish of Christowell is the theme of the novel. The story begins with the garden where resides “Captain Larks,” alias Mr. Arthur, neither Mr. Arthur nor "Captain Larks," but a mysterious soldier who renounced his own good name to save one, his brother and fellow officer from disgrace. Misfortune has driven him into retirement, so he lives among his flowers and fruit. Nobody knows anything about him, save Parson Short. Mr. Arthur has a daughter, who, after visiting him as a child during her holidays for several years, at last comes to live with him at his cottage.

It is when she appears, that her father's troubles may be said to begin. Among other characters there are Pugsley the carrier, Sir Joseph Touchwood, who has made a fortune out of shoes supplied by contract to Lord Wellington's army, Julia Touchwood, a Richard Touchwood who achieves small honors at Cambridge, but greater ones at home as a rat-catcher; the villain of the plot is a Mr. Gaston who attempts every crime from murder to bribery to compass his ends, succeeds in hoodwinking every one for some time and keeping Mr. Arthur out of his lawful inheritance. Christowell was serialized in Good Words from January to December 1881, it was published as a three-volume novel in 1882. The novel received good reviews; the Oxford Magazine stated that the novel was "nearly equal" to his others, but mentioned the "weakness lies in the artistic treatment of the details of the plot." The Academy complained that "Blackmore's characters are too clever", but netheless opined that "it is a book to be enjoyed leisurely".

Blackwood's Magazine wrote that "he is never more entertaining than at this homely level, on page after page, which in other books we should skip, but which here we enjoy as we should a walk in the company of the most genial and gentle of humorists." Christowell, at Project Gutenberg Australia
