The Future

January 15, 2011

I would like to wish the best of luck to Tiara Riebeling on her work for the Ramblurr. The Ramblurr is moving on and has moved their website to:

I will continue to update this site as time goes on and will provide you with updates on my career path. Although I am no longer the Editor of the Ramblurr, I now work for the Hudsonian, the student newspaper of Hudson Valley Community College. You can check out my work on the Hudsonian at:

Congrats Grads!

June 26, 2010

I would like to wish the RHS Class of 2010 a warm congratulations on this journey in life. We as a class, made a goal to be successful from the beginning. In 2006, we made a goal to stick together as a class, succeed as a class, and graduate together as a class. Our goal was hard to accomplish. However, together, we made this very goal possible. Many of us will be moving on in life. Some will be attending local colleges, while others may be heading overseas. However, our distant relationships will form a tight bond that will never be broken. Each member of our class, holds a piece of the memories we’ve shared throughout the course of the years. These memories will last forever. RHS is no longer our alma mater. However, we can now cherish the memories we’ve left behind in the halls of the campus we moved into during 10th grade. Farewell to my fellow classmates and best of wishes for future success! Also, farewell to the RHS Ramblurr. I wish Mr. Hoffman the best of luck for finding a replacement to take over as the 2010-2011 Editor.

– Dave Ellis (2009-2010 RHS Ramblurr Editor)

Barracuda Bologna!

March 19, 2010

Lately, one may notice that Barracuda Systems has put many security restrictions on websites in the Rensselaer City School District. Links such as Carmela’s Banquet House are blocked because they are considered to be uncategorized. Hopefully, the IT Department will make some adjustments as blocks have been put on sites that are appropriate and should not be blocked.

Are you ready?
