Corn detassling popular summer job for students

July 25, 2011

PLYMOUTH — The cornfield looked empty, just a mass of stalks bending under the sun’s heat.
A few minutes later, however, a large red tractor became visible over the tops of the corn. Groups of kids, all wearing neon orange hats to shield their face from the sun, jumped off the long arms attached to the tractor, brushing cornstalk remnants off their hands. They were in the middle of a long morning of detassling corn — and it was time for a break.
“(The job) has it’s ups and downs,” said Derrick Lee, one of the detasslers, Thursday. “Especially on days like today. It’s hot!”

Academies choir makes beautiful music in Austria

July 24, 2011

When you hear the name Mozart, you might associate it with words such as “child prodigy,” “classical music,” or “talented composer.”

But for 21 Culver Academies students, the name Mozart will yield the sights and sounds of Salzburg, Austria – home of the Mozart International Choral Festival. On June 28, the students and five adults departed the United States en route to Salzburg, Austria, where they were invited to sing in the second annual Mozart International Choral Festival.
