Missoula Children's Theatre brought the new show "Blackbeard the Pirate" to Crystal. The show starts off as a lazy day on the beach, but quickly turns to mystery and adven- ture when the search for Blackbeard's treasure begins. Pi- rates, sailors, crabs, crocodiles, mermaids, seaweed creatures, parrots, and more brought the produc- tion to life within one week when the stu- dents performed for the public on Friday and Saturday.

Aggie Vision teaches eark"River Area students a new type oftech By Kellen Dobmeier of The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- The 2013-14 school year has brought a new class option for juniors and seniors at Park River Area High School. During the fourth pe- riod of the day, a hand- ful of students filter into Bill Galloway's classroom, ready to continue work on var- ious productions in a course called "Aggie Vision", which is a col- laborative effort be- tween the school and Polar Communica- tions. The course itself deals with the many aspects of film, such as basic filming tech- niques, film editing, and even some ele- ments of Green Screen, a technique that in- volves video layering. Aggie Vision also has it's own TV channel, number 74, on Polar's basic cable package. Polar's Chief Mar- keting Officer Joan Swartz said that Po- lar's part in the pro- gram, which launched Oct. 4, is providing the school the equipment and the signal to show the programming on. With that channel, people who are unable to travel to PRAHS athletic events have a chance to watch the Thanksgiving feast See paffe' 2 Top riders See page 5 ",We m,&e a l[ t'&',,"'hnt,ff by \\;qha t we et, l&u,l:: \\;,e ma&e a l[ffe lb what \\;,,,,e gb,m."
