Watson here, and until last year I had no idea that there was a Kitten Season. It turns out that Kitten Season refers to a period of time when female cats are giving birth to litters. It typically lasts between the months of April and October; however, it can happen year-round. Female cats usually have two litters a year though in colder areas only one. Many factors contribute to this yearly phenomenon. Longer days, warmer weather, and access to food are the perfect recipe for kittens.

Senator Square: Carson High School student sees hard work payoff

This year I chose to be in the CHS publications class in order to help with yearbook, thinking it would be a fun way to learn about things I really enjoy. What I did not expect is how much work goes into creating a yearbook. My assignment was to design two theme pages which celebrate Carson High’s 150 years. I began this expedition by looking into CHS’s rich history at the Carson City Historical Society. I started looking for good pictures of the faces of Carson High School’s many buildings. Jed Block, who graduated from CHS in 1987, helped me a great deal by sending me all the photos he had of CHS’s past buildings. Around this time, I began to discover how many teachers who work at this school also graduated from CHS. It was quite obvious I needed to recognize the community of teachers who graduated from here. The second thing going on was the reunion of CHS’s class of 1961. Unfortunately, I missed the date for the reunion, so I called Dan Miles, who put the reunion together. Dan Miles, who graduated from CHS, gave me the names and contact information of the Class of 1961 graduates he thought might actually want to talk with me. With the list in hand, I began calling and was able to talk with two of them.
