W inter is setting in
and temperatures
are quickly drop
ping. Quilts on the lawns and
crowds around the swings are
seen much less frequently. As
the cold sets in, much of the
activities and spirit of NCSSM
lessen. Not to worry! Amidst
the drear of winter, the Drama
Board has brought you a play
sure to heat things up! Not
only is Shakespeare's "Twelfth
Night" set in the
Mediterranean Summer, it is
also spiced with sizzling dia
logue. It's a "Midsummer
"OTSanfess," according to Zack
Armfield. Love affairs, false
demons, and men in yellow
stockings with "unmuzzled
thought[s] and tyrannous
heart[s]" can be expected from
every performance. Written in
classic Shakespearean style,
"Twelfth Night" uses beautiful
words to say scandalous
things. For those of you who
think of Shakespeare as old.
boring, and totally incompre
hensible: think again. Insults
and jokes, innuendos and puns
are floating through each
scene, making the play as
hilarious and contemporary as
any new television show. At
the root of the plot, cross
dressing leads to pandemoni
um and, of course, humor. As
Zack commented during
rehearsal, "It's a big. I'm too
sexy for my shirt kind of
thing." The cast is virtually
new to the NCSSM stage, but
performing excellently in
rehearsal. So come support the
Drama Board, get away from
the cold, and prepare to laugh.
The cast and crew get final stage directions before the big night.

O n September 18th,
Hurricane Isabel
charged through the
upper coasts of North
Carolina. Thomas Revelle, a
senior from Murfreesboro,
was one of the many unfortu
nate students who experienced
the effects of the storm.
However, Revelle, being only
60 miles west of the coast and
10 miles south of the Virginia
line, faced more of the storm
than most. The strongest part
of the storm, the Northeastern
section, passed right through
"Winds picked up
Thursday morning and were
strongest from Noon until
4PM. It was 6PM before
things finally started to settle
down." Revelle stated that his
family had no power for eight
days and that the rest of the
city suffered greatly as well;
many trees fell on homes and
there were widespread power
outages. Fortunately, there
was no major flooding and the
biggest burden was cleaning
up the fallen limbs and
branches after the storm.
However, Revelle and his
family still resolved to make
the best out of the bad situa
tion; their family had a gener
ator to keep some meat cold,
so each night after the storm
they cooked out. "I was
happy to come back to school
because I finally had access to
a hot shower and air condi
tioning," said Revelle.
Hurricane Isabel causes many problems on the East Coast.
However, he felt that it was a
bad idea to have the evacua
tion because it sent him much
closer to the storm, though he
was still glad to be able to
help his grandparents with
their fallen trees. Today, he
says, there are still many bro
ken limbs on the streets of
because the city is
anticipating some
monetary aid from
the government to
help with cleaning
up the debris.
Will Fleming,
also a senior, gave us
another account of
the storm. "1 went
out for a jog around
dusk the night before
the hurricane, and
there was a kind of
creepy feel to the
night. Winds were
blowing harder than
Hawkins usual, 1 would say
gusts at 23 knots."
He noticed that one half of the
sky was clear and the other
was dark, but he went home
unalarmed. The next morning
he woke up to find pouring
rain and higher wind speeds.
"It got worse from 2PM until
about 9 that night, but there
was no serious damage to my
house," said Fleming.
However, he said that a 3 foot
deep pond formed in his back
yard. He was really disap
pointed that the hurricane had
come through because he was
not able to go outside, but he
was thankful for the mildness
of the hurricane in compari
son to previous ones, such as
Hurricane Floyd. He recol
lects that just a few years ago,
a man drowned in his neigh
borhood because the nearby
stream had flooded over a
bridge. Fleming stated that he
felt it was smart financial
decision by the administration
to proceed with the evacua
