CELEBRATE: There was likely a million more people celebrating Mardi Gras on the streets of New Orleans on Tuesday, but the mood was no less festive in the Struthers High School cafeteria where about 50 French Club members put their own spin on the festive holiday. Amid purple, green and gold decorations and the strains of "Mardi Gras Mambo" and "When the Saints Go Marching In," Roslyn Terek's students, including Amber Fast, top, celebrated Fat Tuesday. Also enjoying the festivities were Angela Monaco, center, who crowned Kristi Collins and Tim Jackson, bottom, as carnival royalty. Students made masks for the occasion, and after a feast of traditional Mardi Gras king cake, French crepes and good old American pizza, they let the good times roll with a parade -- with plenty of beads for everyone.
