A sturdy foundation   Teenagers and kids don't regularly get recognized for their ideas, talents and knowledge.   Pulse has been a creative and community-oriented method for us teenagers to have a say in society. Our minds, at this age, are full of motion, always finding the new way to attack something. Also, we are at the time of when we are discovering where we belong in this world full of diverse people. I believe that the foundation Pulse builds under our feet will positively contribute to our future and where we are heading in our lives.

Everyone in the room … Stand back.  Give me the paddles. Charge it to 240. Clear. Fwah-ump.  I'm getting a heartbeat. Wow, I always wanted to write that, and today, it's sort of fitting. It sort of summarizes last Friday night in the little ER we know as Hagerstown. There was this foreign feeling in the city that's usually missing. There was a pulse. It almost bordered on excitement. Friday was one of the biggest sporting days of the year for Washington County.

This past weekend saw an upset at the box office as "The Call" became the weekend's most successful new release, beating out the star-studded but formulaic magic comedy "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. "  Maybe it was just my relief at not having to review that bomb, or maybe it was the excitement of rushing out to a movie after midnight Saturday, but I found "The Call" to be surprisingly endearing.  The same thing happened with "Chronicle" last year, and while "The Call" isn't worthy of the near-rave review I gave "Chronicle," I was at least glad to have gone out of my way to see it. Halle Berry stars as Jordan, a 911 operator who is traumatized in film's opening moments when she mishandles a call about a home invasion that leads to a girl's death.

"Don't touch anything. " That was my first instruction to the Pulse teen journalists when we were allowed to enter The Herald-Mail Headline News' brand, spanking-new broadcast studio. Nearly all of the six high school seniors are super smart kids, but I wasn't taking any chances. It seems like forever since we started on this broadcast journey. Earlier this year, we had made a decision to stop publishing a weekly Pulse teen section. It was hard adjustment for not only the teens, but for me, too. What was next?
