I think writing is a skill that can serve someone a lifetime.  Does anyone remember the Children's Corner from the Beacon Journal in the '70's?  What do these two things have in common?  We are going to feature young authors at the bottom of this page, just like the Beacon Journal used to do!  If you have a young author up to 12 years of age who may want to write a story or a news item or a report, e-mail it to us at mkovack@medinaco.org (along with their picture) and we'll try to get as many in as possible.  It may just lure them away from their video games!  Hope you have a great weekend!

Hope Hageman - Wadsworth Young Author

http://ih.constantcontact.com/fs113/1109842295736/img/819.jpg    My name is Hope Hageman & I am 11 years old.  I was born in Anqing, China.  I like to play soccer, listen to music, and play video games.  I have earned my orange tip belt in Tae Kwan Do.  I go to CIS in Wadsworth where I play the trumpet in the 6th grade band.  I am also a part of the 6th grade choir.  I go out to lunch on the weekends with my family and last year I wrote restaurant reviews for the school newspaper.

    One of my favorite restaurants is Marie's in Wadsworth.  They are famous for their pizza.  The people who work there are very nice.  Two of my favorite servers are Luke and Mike.  I like Luke because he always smiles and his daughter colors pictures for my sister and me.  I like Mike because he always comes over to talk to us, even when he is not our server and he draws us funny pictures.

    Marie's is very neat and clean.  It is decorated with paintings of chefs, Italian foods, Marie and her husband.  You can sit at a booth or a table.

    The menu looks like a book & has many choices. There are many drink options such as hot cocoa, hot tea, iced tea, root beer, Coke products, lemonade and chocolate or white milk.  The appetizers include garlic bread, onion rings, boneless wings, cheddar cheese poppers, breaded mushrooms and potato skins.  For the main meal, you can get pasta, chicken, fish, soup, salad, pizza and more.

    I had cheese ravioli with meat sauce.  The portion was large and my meal was very delicious.  I also had jo jos.  Jo jos are potatoes that are cut into wedges and breaded, then deep fried.  They are nice and crispy.  They are fabulous!  Some of my other favorites are their cheeseburger, the stuffed shells and the pizza.

    The price for the amount of food you get is very fair.  I would absolutely recommend Marie's to anyone!
