North Kansas City High School

North Kansas City High School known as "NKCHS," "NKC," and "Northtown," is a high school in North Kansas City, Missouri with 1900+ students, ranging from freshmen to seniors. It is a part of the North Kansas City School District; the first graduating class found of record was in 1917 with three known graduates. The school began as an all-white school, due to the inhabitants of the community, is now one of the most diverse and integrated schools in the nation. Since July 2001, Northtown has been an International Baccalaureate World School with Dr. Jane Reed as the program coordinator. Throughout the school's history, several buildings have been torn down. Standing are the three-story Main building featuring the original theatre and Norclay. Other buildings in use on the campus are the "Academy" and the North Kansas City Public Library and Media Center. Northtown is being expanded and renovated. Northtown prides itself on its unique opportunity as one of the only local schools to have an open campus.

The stone wall around the NKCHS Football Field was created as a works project during the Great Depression. It has been ranked the Most Interesting High School Football Field in the Kansas City area by the Kansas City Star, has been used for local commercials, including Metro Sports; the current main building was contracted to be built the first of March, 1925 as documented in the 1925 NKCHS Owl Yearbook for a total cost of $190,000. The contract was awarded to Hufford Construction in Liberty, Missouri; the 1926 NKCHS Owl yearbook describes the opening and dedication of the new building on Sunday afternoon, January 24, 1926 by Missouri Governor Baker. One of the buildings where classes were held was the Hiram McElroy Dagg building; the mascot is the Hornet. Although many have thought the original mascot was an owl, no evidence of that exists in published NKCHS yearbooks that we have found. There is; the confusion comes with the name of the yearbook from 1924 through 1949. High school jewelry like pins, etc. bore the image of an owl.

The evidence is stronger when you read in the 1929 Owl yearbook where the Pep Squad states, "All right, let's everybody give fifteen big "Rahs" for the "Hornets". Again in the 1930 NKCHS Owl yearbook you can see the Hornet on the Basketball player's shirts; the Owl yearbook was printed from 1924 through 1949. No yearbook was printed in 1932 or 1927 for reasons unknown; the school adopted a new name for the yearbook in 1950... the Purgold. During the 2019 season, the Women's Basketball team defeated Jefferson City High School in the State Championship game. Head Coach Jeff Lacy was named Coach of the Year. Competitive Teams Include: Class of 1948 Al Conway, All American Running Back, 1st round draft choice for the Philadelphia Eagles, National Football League Umpire, Super Bowl Official, NAIA Hall of Fame, William Jewell College Hall of Fame, Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, North Kansas City High School Football Coach & Mathematics Teacher.

Claude Fournier (revolutionary)

Claude Fournier L'Héritier was a French personality of the Revolution, nicknamed l'Americain. He was born at Auzon, the son of a poor weaver, went to French America to seek his fortune. At Saint-Domingue on the island of Haiti, he began the manufacture of tafia, but lost everything in a fire. Returning to France, he joined the Revolution with enthusiasm, distinguished himself by organizing a popular armed force which became involved in all major insurrections of the capital including the Women's March on Versailles, Champ de Mars Massacre, the storming of the Tuileries Palace and the 9 September massacres, he was on bad terms with the majority of the politicians and spent much of his time in prison, all governments regarding him as an agitator and accusing him of inciting to insurrection. Arrested for the first time for trying to force an entrance into the club of the Cordeliers, from which he had been expelled, he was released, but was in prison from 12 December 1793, to 21 September 1794, again from 9 March to 26 October 1795.

After the attempt on the First Consul in the Rue Sainte-Nicaise he was deported to French Guiana, but was allowed to return to the French Empire in 1809. In 1811, while under surveillance at Auxerre, he was accused of having provoked a riot against indirect taxes known as the droits réunis, was imprisoned in the Château d'If, where he remained until 1814. On the second Bourbon Restoration, Fournier was confined for about nine months in La Force Prison. After 1816 he turned Royalist, passed his last years in importuning the Restoration government for compensation for his lost property in Saint-Domingue, he died in obscurity.

List of Doctor Who writers

This is a list of screenwriters for the science fiction television series, Doctor Who. It is sortable by a number of different criteria; the list defaults to ascending alphabetical order by writer's last name. A "writer of Doctor Who" is defined as a person who received onscreen credit for a live action, non-parodic story. E.g. Terrance Dicks wrote four of the six episodes of The Seeds of Death in reality, but since Brian Hayles is the only name to appear on screen he receives the credit; the notes shed light on the work writers did on particular stories. Further details about the way in which this list was compiled can be found by clicking the footnote marker at the top of each column. Information on this list is current through to Series 11.
