Be a Valentine's Day Dream Beau

By:Joshua Lebron

Valentine's Day is a day many guys around the world struggle with every year. This year I'm here to help you with that. Here are two ideas from myself and two interviews from female students here at Lake Sumter.

1. The first date idea is for girls who aren’t into new and crazy stuff. Instead of going to an expensive restaurant, find a nice open field, bring a blanket, some bug spray, a picnic basket full of all her favorite foods and drinks, and spend the night talking and stargazing, just the two of you!

2. This second date idea is for a guy who really wants to show off his romantic side. Find out the one place in the world your girlfriend wants to travel to. Then, decorate your home or dining room in the style of the place she wants to visit. For decoration ideas try craft stores. Then for the food follow a recipe from that region. You can even have music from the area she wants to travel to playing the background for ambiance! This idea would take more time and effort than others but your girlfriend will see just how romantic you are!

If neither of those ideas go your way let me offer some insight from girls here at Lake Sumter.

One student expressed herself as a lover of conventional dates and wouldn't mind a Valentine's Day just spent with her and her boyfriend. She said she would enjoy a nice movie date at home.

Another student expressed the same. She enjoys dates on the more conventional side but as long as they both enjoy it, it's good enough for her. She said she would enjoy a nice date in the city so both she and her boyfriend can do things they enjoy.

Clermont Home to Supercross Legends

By: Sarah Oulman
CLERMONT, Florida – Aldon Baker, one of the most well-known and successful trainers within the Supercross community, is currently training several of the sport’s top riders at his facility, which is located in the Clermont area. In an interview at this training facility, Baker gave a glimpse into what it is actually like to train these professional riders.             When I asked Baker about his journey to becoming a trainer in his field, he explained that he initially trained individuals, specifically bicyclists, using cardio and strength conditioning techniques. Baker’s cycling career brought him from his home in South Africa to America, and once in the United States, the brand Oakley steered him towards working with motorcycles.             Baker also explained that his elite training program did not come together quickly. According to the celebrity trainer, “The [conditioning and training] developed over time… It took 17 years to create the full training package”. …

School Shooting Crisis: An LSSC Student's Perspective

School Shooting Crisis: An LSSC Student’s Perspective Opinion by David Housley
The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was horrifying. When I heard the news, my first reaction was, “How did this happen?”In seven minutes, a 19-year-old man managed to fatally shoot 17 people and wound 14 more with an assault rifle. Why was the shooter not stopped sooner? School districts need a drastic increase in funding to ensure students are safe from harm, because no parent should ever receive a text message from their child at school saying, “If I don’t make it I love you and I appreciated everything you did for me.”
As an LSSC student-parent, I fear for my children’s future. The shooting at Douglas High marked the eighteenth school shooting in 2018, while in 2017 there were only seven school shootings by February. The increase is alarming, and students, parents and teachers should not have to fear for their lives. LSSC has taken matters into their own hands by teaming up with ALICE Train…

From Parent to Student: A Father's Experience at LSSC

By David Housley

It’s no secret, college can be overwhelming for anyone. Most students at LSSC are employed while taking multiple classes. They then dedicate a few hours each night to studying which consumes the scarce amount of free time they have left. If any student allows even a single day of procrastination, there will be a snowball effect. This effect will cause an inevitable pileup of homework. Consequently, adding young children to the mix turns college life into a high-stakes balancing act, stretching students to their limits. As a parent, I can relate to those students firsthand and sympathize with all the unexpected but costly incidences that occur because of parenthood.
I’ve been a student at LSSC since January 2017. Since first enrolling, I’ve had the additional responsibilities of fatherhood; working full-time and helping my wife raise our two boys who are now three years old and seven months old. While it is not uncommon for LSSC students to have a job, I can say with con…
