1ST - I need to fix up my car. It is a Red 1986 Ford Mustang that is turning pink because of
age. The problems I have with the car are, having never been fixed up since it was made
in Ď86, is looking worse with each day. The upholstery, which was a dark red when new,
is turning to a whitish pink color from fading over the years. Also from the sun, is the
dashboard, it is cracked in many different places.
The music of my car s non-existent, the reason for this is the fact that Julie
Jenner, the previous owner, took the stereo out to use for herself. When I do get a stereo
finally hooked up, whoever has to do this will have a tough job because Julie did all of
the wiring herself, badly. I am always bored in my car because the lack of music makes
me sleepy.
The motor in my car is a 4 cylinder and it idles at about 500 R. P. M., which is
very low. Because of low idling, the engine sometimes kills when I stop at red lights or
stop signs. The low idle speed also makes it harder to start the car in cold weather and
bad heating. Slower acceleration is another bad part of the idle, also making it frustrating
when I try to peel out. To fix this I will have to have someone teach me how to set the
idle.
To pay for these numerous luxuries, I will have to save my paycheck from my job
for a long time. This will take a long time because I only make about twenty or
twenty-five dollars a week. Only working four and a half hours a week is not very
profitable. I will eventually pay for this if I save and spend my money wisely. I may even
have to get another job to make myself happy.
2ND - The girls Basketball team for Sturgis is probably one of the best tams in the state.
Our team outperforms and outscores every competitor to come this way. We have many
great players including, Megan Little, Megan Mahoney, Miaken Zeigler, and Tai Leidtke.
But with Mahoney scoring over 1000 career points, who could even come close?
The girls have taken us to third in South Dakota, defeating Sioux Falls and
Mitchell with ease. The same teams were able to beat us many years ago, but no more.
If you are confused about what I am trying to say, it is as simple as this, the girls
basketball team is in top shape and they are the best there are. They will go to state and
they will impress everyone by winning. So far, we are almost defeated, losing by only a
couple points in each losing game. We are on a streak and will probably stay that way
for the rest of the year.
This year is a slight change of from last year team wise. We were forced to
change leagues, this year we mainly play teams from the East Side of South Dakota. Last
year we play schools from the nearby Black Hills or eastern Wyoming. I am pretty sure
that we taken out of the league because they saw that we would be dominating their
teams in no time.
So why do you think I like the team so much? if it isnít clear YET, it is because
we are so damn good! It even makes up for some of the losses by our football team.
