One thing that very few students have to deal with in school is type 1 diabetes.  In fact, there are only about 200,000 people under the age of 20 nationwide with the disease. According to the American Diabetes Association, type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults.  Type 1 diabetes does not allow the body to produce insulin, which c... READ MORE »»

    Games like the Ohio State game last Saturday, when it’s absolutely insane in Happy Valley and the Penn State Blue Band is getting run over by crazy fans, are the games that Dylan Albright lives for. “It was insane when Penn State scored the go ahead touchdown on the blocked field goal,” Dylan – a Blue Band member – recalled.  “That’s the loudest I have ever heard the stadium!  The student section rushed the field and I nearly ... READ MORE »»

    Locker room talk? Not at Bellwood

    October 21, 2016

    No matter which way you’re voting this November, we can all agree that Presidential Candidate Donald Trump digs a deep hole with the way he speaks about women. For many voters, last week was the last straw. There was an Access Hollywood video released of Trump from 2005 where he describes all the inappropriate details of his experiences with women while in the spotlight. Trump was recorded using such strong off-color remarks that, when you hear what... READ MORE »»

    The Bellwood-Antis junior high football team scored 22 points in the fourth quarter to ignite a 30-6 victory over Mount Union at Memorial Stadium last Thursday.

    October 16, 2016

    For those who don’t remember Nathan Larimer or Josh Rimmey from high school, then you may remember Josh's video Bellwood: a Taste Of.  It was a glimpse of a small town in the Alleghenies. Flash forward 10 years: Josh and Nathan are still together and making videos, most recently as part of an VMA award winning team directing the video for DNCE's smash hit "Cake by the Ocean."  It’s a video that every student at Bellwood has seen or hear... READ MORE »»
