S: Hi! :D

FC: By: Ashley Rice & Jeremy Propst & Tabby Tessmer | Famous Figures

1: Jeremy Propst The 5 people i will be working on are: Michael VIck, an actor is Billy mays, King George the III, John F. Kennedy, and Bernie Mac | Ashley Rice People: Benjamin Franklin, Florence Nightingale, Frank Sinatra, Theodore Roosevelt, and tony hawk. | Tabby(: Ryan Sheckler Jeff Buckley Sam Adams John Handcock George Washington | Front Cover??? | Order them?

2: Sam Adams was born September 27, 1722. He died October 2, 1803. Samuel was a very visible popular leader who, spent a great deal of time in the public eye agitating for resistance. It was there that he was the first to propose a continental congress. He was a a good friend of Tom Paine.

5: Michael Vick is a pretty well known football player. He is well known because he has done good things and bad things. Some good things are that he does very good as a quarterback and he has lead most of the teams he has played with. Also, he gets hit more than any quarterback in the NFL. He also gets knocked down, hit, or sacked every 4.5 passing plays. He also completes 29-of-44 passes for 333 yards and he rushes 9 times for 44 yards. Had two 300-yard passing games in his career. Vick Following his 302-yard performance in the Philadelphia Eagles 34-24 win over the Houston Texans, Vick now has thrown for 300 yards in three of the last four games. He has also done bad things on the field like fumbling the ball and giving another team a touchdown and losing it for the team. Finally, It is said that he has a strong arm but his accuracy it a hit and miss.

6: Billy | Anthony

7: The next person is Billy Mays and most people knew him as the t.v. guy that did the OxiClean commercials and all the other cleaning or good inventions. He also had a show that is called Pitchmen and I have seen it a couple of times but I have not seen him in one of the episodes. But i have seen the person that is doing the commercials and his name is Anthony 'Sully' Sullivan. I have only seen Anthony in the pitchmen show and he make good decisions that Billy would have made. Like the picture I think that the picture represents that they both have their thumbs up and down to say the decisions that they make when they see inventions that the people have made.So they either think that the invention will make a lot of money or it will not. One of the thins that I saw that Anthony thought would make a lot of money was some kind of light on your hands so when you are working in very dark places you have your hands free so you do not have to carry a flashlight around with you. I also think that Anthony makes good decisions because it was a smart idea to have the hands free light invention because it it for people that either like to work in the dark or have to work in the dark. it is also a good thing to have around the house because when the lights go out in storms they will be there to keep you hands free and to see.

9: The next person that I am doing is John F. Kennedy he is a pretty well known person because he was shot in the head by assassination. he has many quotes and my favorite one is: "Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names". Another quote that I like is: "And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country". JFK's real name is John Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy and he was president from
