Alaskan Senator Ted Stevens, securing more than $200 million in public funding, championed a proposed bridge to be built between Gravina Island and the town of Ketchican.
In Sept. 2007 it was cancelled
In July 2008, Stevens, the longest-serving Republican senator and a figure in Alaskan politics since before statehood, was indicted on seven counts of failing to disclose thousands of dollars in services he received from a company that helped renovate his home.
The proposed bridge would have cost taxpayers $329 million.
The project, dubbed the “Bridge to Nowhere,” quickly became a national symbol of federal pork barrel spending. Group One- strong readers who knew little about baseball.

The Knowledge Deficit
Kids without prior knowledge are at a disadvantage regardless of reading ability.
Study conducted on two groups of students who were asked to read a passage about baseball. The Danger of Word Poverty Startling Statistics By kindergarten, a gap of 32 million words already separate some children in linguistically impoverished homes from their more stimulated peers. By third grade, students who suffer from "word poverty" are often at a million word deficit. By sixth grade, students are already three grade levels behind their average-performing peers. A reader needs to understand ____ percent of the words found in a passage to comprehend the reading. But, even more importantly is the reader's knowledge of the world factors into making sense of the print. Without a broad knowledge, our students stand NO CHANCE of being excellent readers. What the reader brings to the passage is often more important than the ability to read the words on the page. The pitcher had excellent control, and his pitches were very difficult to hit. Find the person in the room who has the same topic/person of interest as you do.
Write a brief news story, addressing the Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How?
Your news story can be factual, fabricated or a little bit of both.
Be ready to share your news story with the group. Find Your Match! The pitcher's stuff was filthy. He was throwing the ball exceptionally hard. He was bringing cheese. To keep batters from crowding the plate, the pitcher mixed in some high and tight pitches. He mixed in some chin music. Along with his fastball, the pitcher occasionally threw curveballs. Some of them were so effective they froze the batters in their tracks. Along with the heat, Uncle Charlie would occasionally show his face, producing a number of bowel-lockers. Only two batters got a knock. Only two batters got a hit. No one came close to hitting a home run (8 is the first number used in most hotel rooms to dial long distance). No one came close to dialing 8. What can I do in my encore class to support literacy? Weekly news articles on Tween Tribune (www.tweentribune.com) Teaching Kids News
