DIRECTOR’S PAGE
Even though in the last two years, the 500 schools districts across the state have not received State funding to the
degree they did before, it remains evident, however, that many school districts still believe that forensic competition
is worthwhile. This is evidenced by the number of schools entering the competition in PHSSL’s Drama
competition, District tournaments, and the State tournament. We, who are involved in this activity, know how
important and needed education is in the areas of theatre, debate, and communication.
I want to thank all the forensic directors and coaches who continue to sustain forensic programs at their schools and
who spend countless hours coaching and preparing students for these speech and drama activities. Also, I want to
thank those persons who serve the PHSSL organization in various ways: being a District Chair; perform Drama
Coordinator duties; lead the organization by being an Executive Board member; and assist Codie and me during the
year.
Also, various members of the university community need to be thanked because without them, our organization
could not function at Susquehanna. They are President Jay Lemons, Provost Linda McMillin; Dean of Arts and
Sciences Valerie Martin; and Chris Markle Director of Admissions. These individuals consistently show their
continued interest and support of PHSSL.
This third issue of The Communicator not only summarizes the activities for this academic year, but it also includes
information for next year. If you find any mistakes that need correction, please let Codie know so the matter(s) can
be taken care of immediately.
Election results for the four annual Executive Board position are as follows: Lisa Bompiani-Smith, Nathan
Lawver, Kathleen O’Halloran, and Beth Young
Also, I want to thank all those individuals who showed interest in becoming a Board member by having their names
placed on the ballot.
The Executive Board will be meeting at Susquehanna University on Saturday, July 12. If you want to place an item
on the agenda, please let me, Codie or one of the Executive Board members know so the matter can be discussed.
And, finally, I want to wish you a Happy Summer. Please take the time to get rejuvenated and refreshed, so when
fall comes, we can start another successful year for forensics!

2014 TOURNAMENT ITEMS
 Mr. Augustine provided the WIFI passcode for access at the tournament.
 The Persuasive Speaking events will be held at the Selinsgrove High School on Friday.
 Mr. Augustine reminded the Executive Board: “No announcements about events at the high school or

elementary school.”
 Mr. Augustine requested that it be announced at the judges’ meeting that all cell phones are to be turned off
during rounds.

between 9:00-11:45 PM.
 Executive Board members were asked to volunteer to work the Registration Table to collect any changes.
 Mr. Augustine reminded everyone to be mindful of the original set-up in rooms that are utilized by university,
elementary and high schools. He asked that coaches and judges be reminded of this and furniture be returned
to its original location at the end of competitions. The teachers at the elementary school are supposed to leave
a picture showing how the room is set up so we know how to return it to its original configuration.
 Mr. Augustine reminded that the announcements at the Selinsgrove schools should be kept to a minimum so
competition can get started and finished at a reasonable hour.
 Mr. Augustine announced that Saturday’s pairings will appear on the TV screens in Evert Dining Room on
Friday during the buffet hours and on Twitter. Semi-finals will be posted in the same manner. The schematics
will also appear in Apfelbaum Hall on Saturday morning.

RADIO SCRIPT #1
A portion of Route 322 in Dauphin and Lebanon counties is scheduled to be closed for bridge repairs, starting at seven o'clock Monday
night. The area affected will be between Meadow Lane in Derry Township and Campbelltown Road in South Londonderry Township.
PennDOT says this area of Route 322, which carries over 15 thousand vehicles daily, will be closed to traffic for ten days. A signed detour
will direct motorists around the bridge closure by way of Route 743, Route 422, South Lingle Avenue and Campbelltown Road.
An anti-fracking activist is set to ask a Pennsylvania judge today to lift an injunction that bars her from her local hospital, grocery store, and
other properties that sit atop land leased by a Texas-based company for shale gas extraction. A five-month-old injunction prohibits 63year-old Vera Scroggins, of Brackney, from setting foot onto 40 percent of Susquehanna County land that is leased by Cabot Oil and Gas.
Scroggins is known for recording anti-fracking video footage, some of which was used in the documentary film "Gasland."
Eight people are dead and at least 18 are still missing nearly two days after a landslide in Washington state buried homes and cars under
mud and tangled debris. The search for victims was set to resume early on Monday after dangerous, quicksand conditions forced rescue
workers to suspend their efforts over the weekend. Some workers had to be dragged to safety after becoming mired in mud up to their
armpits. The landslide was triggered after rain-soaked embankments along State Route 530 near Oso, Washington, gave way on Saturday
morning, washing away at least six homes.
Major Texas shipping channels that deliver crude oil for more than one-tenth of the nation's refining capacity were shut down for a third
day on Monday, as the cleanup from a tanker spill threatened to last through the week. The Houston Ship Channel was shut down
Saturday following a collision between an oil barge and a cargo ship, spilling some 168-thousand gallons of fuel oil into the channel. Early
Monday morning, the channels to Houston, Texas City, Galveston, and the Intracoastal Waterway remained closed.

Southwest Airlines has announced it is adding flights from Reagan-Washington National Airport this year, to new destinations such as
Akron, Ohio, Indianapolis, and Dallas. The airliner is adding the flights after it bought takeoff and landing rights at the airport that
American Airlines agreed to divest under an agreement with the U-S Justice Department. In addition to the new destinations, Southwest
plans to use the new slots to add flights between Reagan National and Chicago, Houston, St. Louis and other cities.
Apple is in talks with Comcast to enter into a deal for a streaming-television service that would allow Apple set-top boxes to bypass
congestion on the web. According to the Wall Street Journal, the discussions are in early stages and there are a lot of hurdles to be crossed
before a definitive agreement could be reached. Apple, which wants its TV service's traffic to be separated from public internet traffic over
the "last mile" for faster transmission, is looking for special treatment from Comcast's cables to bypass congestion. Last month, Netflix
agreed to pay Comcast for faster speeds, throwing open the possibility that more content companies will have to shell out for better
service.
An Egyptian court has sentenced 529 members of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood to death on charges including murder, in a sharp
crackdown on the movement. Family members stood outside the courthouse screaming after the verdict, which is the biggest mass death
sentence handed out in Egypt's modern history. Human rights groups said Monday's verdict suggested the authorities intended to tighten
their squeeze on the opposition. Most of the defendants at Monday's hearing were detained and charged with carrying out attacks during
clashes which erupted in the southern province of Minya after the forced dispersal of two Muslim Brotherhood protest camps in Cairo on
August 14th. The Muslim Brotherhood, now largely driven underground, responded by calling for the "downfall of military rule" on its
official website.
A coalition of countries has approved a United Nations document that promotes equality for women, by reaffirming their sexual and
reproductive rights, and endorsing sex education for adolescents. The 24-page declaration approved on Saturday by the Commission on
the Status of Women expressed deep concern that overall progress towards the U-N goal of gender equality and empowerment of
women
remained quote - slow and uneven – end quote. The document calls for equality, empowerment and human rights for women to be a
major plank in new U-N development goals expected to be adopted in 2015.
In sports, the Detroit Tigers continue to stockpile shortstop depth in the wake of Jose Iglesias' likely season-ending injury, after trading
utility infielder Steve Lombardozzi to the Baltimore Orioles for veteran shortstop Alex Gonzalez. The Tigers recently acquired shortstop
Andrew Romine from the Los Angeles Angels to help replace Iglesias, who is out with stress fractures in both legs. Gonzalez and Romine
join Hernan Perez and Danny Worth as the team's options at shortstop.
Taking a look at the local weather forecast, today expect partly cloudy skies with high temperatures in mid-to-upper forties. Tonight, we'll
see mostly cloudy skies with a fifty percent chance of snow and low temperatures in the mid-twenties. Tomorrow's forecast calls for
mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in the mid-to-upper thirties.
