Inspiration- Bill Price

Izabel Kleinberg
Period 2

Topic: Bill Price (Mayor)


Do you ever like to be like someone successful? I would, and I have an inspiration to make me want to become successful. Success is milestone that is very important to me in my life. That’s all I have ever wanted to be is successful and that’s all my family wants me to be. There’s the certain way I want to live my life, The hard work I need to have to get there, and the inspiring words that people say that want me to keep moving on, and my inspiration has just that.


            The life of being busy is not easy. The mayor, the person who makes up almost all of the decisions for our town, has a lot of pressure on him from day to day. When it comes down to it everything is in his hands and he has to take full responsibility for the things that go wrong and the things that go right. So do you wonder how the life of a mayor really is? Like most people Bill Price has a wonderful family that he loves with a wonderful wife, five children and two wonderful grandchildren. He also had wonderful adventures and he says and I quote “ The most interesting thing he has done in his life is bring our community into the 21st century!”  , and as Alvin Toffler said, “ The illiterate of the 21st century will not be who cannot read and write, but who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. This message is so important to me because even if you cannot read or write you can do wonderful things in your life,  just as Bill Price did with his.


“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard” – Unknown Bill Price didn’t just get where he was today by the talent that he had but the work that he gave into it. Bill Price did not have an easy life growing up, yet he still lived his dream. Nothing stopped him from being successful, that means nothing has to stop you from being successful. Bill Price states that “ Hard work pays off no matter who you are or what you have done, and I am living proof of that.”


Not only the person has to inspire you but the things that they say are very inspiring. There are just a few messages that Bill Price wants to get out there and I am willing to help him. The best advice that Bill has to give for kids in middle school and high school is that “Just to study hard and your choices have long term effects.” “When Bill hears about OHS he thinks about kids that have choose to have an education.”  Bill encourages us all to stay in school and get an education, because no matter who you are or what people think of you, you can be successful if you put your mind to it and work hard.


“Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.”- Unknown.

Travel Destination


Times Square, Broadway, the Statue of Liberty. By now, you probably already know where I’m talking about. New York City. The Big Apple. The place where millions of people go to live their dreams. Things are so unique here even from the small things like general information to restaurants, or sites to see.
General information and interesting facts are just the basic reasons that New York is amazing. New York has so many people living there, 8.406 million people, which is the most populated city in the United States. They have plenty of room for everyone with 469mi2 in area. The people in NY may be there to be famous but NY has cool history itself it used to be called New Amsterdam. It also used to be the nation’s capital from 1789-1790.
Also there is the wonderful different kinds of food to eat and the places to eat at. There are different types of food from all around the world. With interesting names like E.A.T the bakery there that seats 140 people and has been opened since 1973. Also if you’re not into the sweet things then go to Famous Dave’s BBQ where they are serving foods from pork ribs, chicken, corn on the cob, and anything you can put on the grill. The most popular place to eat at is Foods of NY Tours where they walk around and make you feel at home while trying food from everywhere you could imagine. With the walking tour of the city and the amazing food there is thousands of people that go there in the past years and the years to come.
Last but not least, you can’t just go somewhere and not actually go somewhere. Enjoy what the sites have to offer. Central park is one of the many places, open to the public from 6:00 am- 1:00 am. This urban park has hundreds people visit each day. New Years eve is the time when New York is the busiest time of the year with the tradition of the ball drop. Liberty is shown in so many ways but the best is the statue of liberty of 305 feet of liberty showing from a tiny island near New York. This was the first statue ever made in New York, it began in September of 1875 and was finished in October 1886. Still has thousands of people visit it a year.
You won’t have one reason to be bored in New York. So go take a vacation, and have fun. From sites to see to places to eat or even interesting facts, I would love to go to New York, now I hope you do too!
