    Team hits inkjet-toner jackpot
    The
    Kennedy High School baseball team won the nationwide Staples $25,000
    Cartridge Chase competition by collecting the most used inkjet toner
    cartridges for recycling. Staples offers $3 for every used toner
    cartridge collected.”When we were doing the fundraiser, we thought, `$3
    a cartridge is great,”‘ team coach Manny Alvarado said. “We thought
    $4,000 or $5,000 would be good money. We never, ever thought we’d win
    $25,000, although it was always in the backs of our mind.”The Kennedy
    team plans to use the money to help pay for a new scoreboard.The annual
    contest is open to any type of school team, athletic or otherwise. To

    dancer since age 11, Gutierrez was the youngest of six males to place
    in the “Youth America Grand Prix” international ballet competition in
    New York in the spring. After seeing the performance, the royal school
    offered him the scholarship to join roughly 45 dancers at the upper

    character at the studio,” said his mother, Andrea Paris-Gutierrez, who

    funny, passionate, temperamental and extremely talented. We will miss
    him very much when he leaves for London.”Fifty-one high school and
