Sonia Yost, Reporter

Hey there stranger! My name is Sonia Yost, and this will be my third year writing for the newspaper. Last year I was an associate editor, and I'm thrilled to see what the staff is going to produce this year. I’m pretty involved in the school as I am a member of the drama club, scholastic scrimmage team, foreign language club, speech league, NHS, mock trial, youth and government, yearbook production crew and swim team. Outside of school, I enjoy bike riding, watching movies. I am also a philatelist (stamp collector) and have a decently sized stamp collection. After graduating, I'll most likely be attending Edinboro University because the distance from home and affordability. I would like to become a high school English teacher and live in Oregon. I've always wanted to move to Oregon and live in the woods. I think you've learned enough about me now. See ya! :)

Once the potatoes, chicken broth and seasonings are in the crock pot, let them sit for six hours on a medium heat. The potatoes should be soft enough to mash when the six hours are over.
