MESSAGE FROM THE EDITORS

A

s this year’s Editors in Chief, we have high expectations for the standards of our literary output. A strong foundation in editorial, technological, and interpersonal skills is imperative to a succesful magazine. Journalism at Canyon High School is highly equipped to instill these three values due to our greatest mentor, influence, and teacherMrs. Garcia. Her expertise

has shaped a class of eager yet unskilled students into a team capable of prodcing a sixteen page spread. Everyone plays a vital role in the process. The writers provide content, the editors ensure the conent’s literary standards are met, and last but not least, the editors in chief bring this revised writing into an offical school magazine. Our hope for this year is that we will be able to transform a simple magazine into a

ere at Canyon High School, there are many wonderful staff members. Today, in the the spotlight are t wo special people: our brand new Athletics Directors Mr. Lofink and Mrs. Higuera. Part of their arduous tasks includes the supervision of all coaches, sport teams and the various athletic departments at Canyon High School. It is a large role to fill, but they both work effectively and efficiently. Pictured above: Mr. Lofink

Pictured above: Mrs. Higuera

Even with their busy schedules, our writers were able to sit down and spend a few minutes with them. Both directors were enthusiastic and happy to talk about their positions. Mr. Lofink shared some of his favorite interests about sports and the new job. When posed with the question what is his favorite sport, he replied “Basketball is one of my top favorites, but I am also starting to enjoy water polo the more I get to know it. They’re all great sports.” In addition to being the Athletics Director, M. Lofink is a credentialed teacher and has taught Freshman Seminar ..Bet ween questions he was

friendly and open, and even answered the more silly questions like “Adidas or Nike?” In case you were wondering, it was Nike. The new female atletic director is just as passionate. Her background consists of her Bachelors Degree in Athletic Training and her Masters Degree in Human Movement with an emphasis in Strength and Conditioning from Arizona School of Health Sciences. Higuera is driven and is now seeking an additional Masters in Education. She states that a job in athletics seemingly called to her, and she jumped at the oppurtunity presented to her. When not studying or coordinating athletic activities, she enjoys spendimg time in the great outdoors! Although they have been Comanches for awhile , they are both enjoying their new roles as directors and the daily challenges that coincide with a new position.

ADVANCING THROUGH THE RANKS JOEY DANQUE

STAFF WRITER EVERY PERSON HAS A UNIQUE OUTLOOK ON HIGH SCHOOL. AS A SENIOR, I’M BOTH EXCITED AND WORRIED ABOUT MY FUTURE. BUT BEFORE I EVEN STARTED THIS EXPERIENCE, I HAD TO DECIDE WHERE I WAS GOING TO GO TO HIGH SCHOOL. MY PARENTS DECIDED THAT I WOULD ATTEND CANYON. THIS BUMMED ME OUT BECAUSE ALL OF MY FRIENDS WERE GOING TO OLU. I WAS SCARED ABOUT GOING TO A SCHOOL WHERE I WOULD NOT KNOW ANYONE. AS AN INCOMING FRESHMAN I WAS VERY NERVOUS AND TERRIFIED. THE MASSIVE DIFFERENCE OF POPULATION FROM A SCHOOL WITH 300 STUDENTS TO OVER 2,000 STUDENTS WAS OVERWHELMING. FRESHMAN YEAR WAS A LONG ONE FILLED WITH GETTING USE TO HIGH SCHOOL LIFE. SOPHOMORE YEAR, ON THE OTHER HAND, WAS MY FAVORITE YEAR WITHOUT A DOUBT BECAUSE

THAT WAS WHEN I REALLY STARTED GETTING USE TO HIGH SCHOOL. I HAD FOUND A GROUP OF FRIENDS WHICH I COULD CALL FAMILY, AND THEY ACCEPTED ME. ALL OF MY CLASSES WERE EASY AND I LOVED MY ELECTIVE VIDEO GAME DESIGN CLASS. BUT THE MAIN REASON THAT IT WAS MY FAVORITE YEAR IS BECAUSE OF OUR BASKETBALL SEASON. I WAS A STARTER AND A MAIN PLAYER ON THE BEST SOPHOMORE TEAM IN THE NATION. THAT TEAM AND

THE PLAYERS ON IT WERE A PART OF MY LIFE THAT I WILL NEVER FORGET. JUNIOR YEAR WAS FILLED WITH PREPARING FOR THE SAT AND GETTING MY PERMIT/ DRIVERS LICENSE.

ALL OF MY CLASSES THAT YEAR WERE PRETTY EASY BECAUSE I PUT ALOT OF TIME IN STUDYING AND PREPARING. SENIOR YEAR IS JUST GETTING STARTED BUT I AM ALL SET TO

TAKE THE SAT AGAIN AND START APPLYING TO COLLEGES. I HAVE PICKED SCHOOLS THAT NOT ONLY SUIT MY BASKETBALL DREAM BUT ALSO MY BACK UP PLAN TO BECOME A COMPUTER SCIENCE MAJOR. I AM IN DISBELIEF THAT MY TIME AT CHS IS COMING TO AN END SOON BUT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MY NEXT ADVENTURE.

4.Caramelicious

With Halloween fast approaching, here is one of my favorite D.I.Y. recipes that is easy and fun for everyone to make, and can be enjoyed throughout the fall too! You will need: a melon baller, about 4 6 large apples, wax paper, lollipop sticks, a double boiler, spatula, and a bag of Kraft caramels. With the melon baller, scoop out ball sections of apple and place them on a cookie sheet with wax paper. Stick the lollipop sticks in each apple ball. Melt the caramels in a double boiler (usually the directions are on the back of the Kraft caramels). Once caramel is cooked, dip the apple

balls into the caramel and place on greased wax paper on cookie sheet. There you have a delicious recipe for Halloween and the kick of the fall season!

5.”This is halloween”

“What’s this, there’s white things in the air”, white string garland that is! These Jack Skellington string garland can be hung from a little festive fun inspired by the King of Halloween Town himself! These are the items needed: white string, black felt, water balloons, liquid fabric starch, paper or card stock, and scissors. First, blow up your water balloons so that they are about 4 inches wide and tie off the ends. Next, cut the white cotton string into long lengths, about 5 feet long. Print out a template of Jack’s face, trace them onto the black felt and then cut out the eyes, nose, and mouth. Pour liquid starch in a bowl, dip the ends of your 5 foot string into a bowl and wrap the string around your balloo, soaking the string in starch before you wrap. Once the balloon resembles a very messy spider web, hang the balloon tip to dry. Place paper towels or craft paper under the balloons as they drip. Tie all the balloons together and repeat. Once the string balls are dry, pop the balloons and pull them out through the gap in the string balls. Glue on the face, string together, and you have a craft for all Jack fans!

Entertainment Oktoberfest Expectations! Trinity Emry

Horror FEST

Jenna Albaroudi

STAFF WRITER

STAFF WRITER

The sweet smell of cotton candy, the whoosh of the roller coaster as it loopy loops, the busy streets, the endless laughter and smiles, and loud cheery music are just a few things to be expected at Oktoberfest this year. Annually the Oktoberfest is a huge event originating in Germany, but is also celebrated here in the United States. Year after year many gather to enjoy this fair and have a good time with friends and family. Once you find a parking spot and venture in, right away you will notice the noise. It’s a jumble of laughing and talking, screaming and loud music all mixed together in a sweet chaotic melody. After, you will get a whiff of the fragrant cotton candy, kettle corn and churros. You may even enjoy the smell of the savory barbequed chicken, pork, and corn. Surrounding the event are game booths. If you enjoy games you can purchase fairly reason-

ably priced red tickets so you can (attempt to) win a variety of neat prizes! On the other hand, if you are more daring, you can purchase ride tickets and try out some very wild

roller coasters. If neither of those appeals to you, the great food should! You can anticipate a wide variety of mouthwatering international foods that can be devoured at one of the numerous picnic tables where you can sit back and enjoy the music, the company of friends, and tasty food. Whether it’s your first time or you attend every year, at Oktoberfest you can anticipate a ceaseless great time!

October is among us, the scariest month of the year. Having trouble coming up with terrifying things to do with your friends this month? There are plenty of horrifying festivals that can scar you for life and haunt your dreams, just waiting for their next victim if you enjoy that sort of thing. The four most popular are Queen Mary Dark Harbor, Hollywood Horror Nights, Knotts Scary Farm, and Disney’s Halloween. Not all are as scary as others. For example, Disney’s Halloween is known for its cute and spooky attractions that are specifically October themed. “There are lots of kids and cute Halloween parades, nothing really scary,” Canyon Comanche Hasti Mofidi explains, “It’s fun but not for someone looking for a real scare.” For more

serious horror fanatics, the three other parks may be a better suit. They include suspenseful mazes and traumatizing monsters that chase guests around the park. Radio Station KPCC explains the competition between the parks, stating that Universal Studios Hollywood Horror Nights has an advantage because it “works with studios to get more detailed, realistic sets, based on popular movies and TV shows such as The Walking Dead.” Though The Queen Mary Dark Harbor is also very unique because it isn’t necessarily an amusement park, it’s a haunted ship making the tone of the place that much more creepy. Overall, these parks will surely satisfy your horror needs for this Halloween season.

san antonio fiesta! Jakhaylah Jefferson

STAFF WRITER

The San Antonio Fiesta came again this year on the second weekend of September at San Antonio Church. At the fiesta, there are activities/games, rides and plenty of different foods to eat. Some rides included the Starship 2000, Cliff Racers, Zipper, Teacups and even a Ferris Wheel. The Zipper is a fun, fast spin around/backwards ride for everyone to get on and get sick. The fiesta also included activities and games for the younger crowd like face painting, karaoke and

basketball stations. Many people attend the fiesta for the pure enjoyment of friends and family. Unfortunately, high attendance can result in longlines for certain rides. Journey Limardo, a freshman stated, “Every year I go, there are always new people you get to meet and the rides are a lot of fun.” The San Antonio Fiesta is a staple of our local area and is a reminder that Fall is slowly approaching.

Would You Enter the Door!?

17th

The cold is finally here! Warm colors, cozy over­ sized sweaters, what’s not to love? The Winter break is closing in, soon the traumatizing alarm will cease to interrupt your essential beauty sleep and the rest of your relaxing day will be up to you. Close your eyes and imagine yourself snuggling up in your comfy bed covers with pillows galore. Your laptop is playing an addicting show on Netflix. Most importantly, you have a warm Starbucks drink clasped between your frozen, red tipped fingers, thawing your insides with every sip. Is that picture clear yet, can you see yourself in that serene moment? Maybe it will become more distinct if you can taste

what drink you are holding? Will it be the Autumn hallmark, The Pumpkin Spice latte, or the Winter classic, The Peppermint Mocha? Do you feel the rich, crisp scent of pumpkins creeping into your nose, or the fresh, clean taste of peppermint freezing your breath? Well the Canyon Comanches have chosen! More than half of the students who were asked chose the famous Pumpkin Spice Latte, adding to the known popularity of this drink. It bombards all the senses and hits with a rush of Autumn, making it a winner in everyone’s eyes. Alas, the conjured dream is complete! Remain calm, it will soon be in reach, good things come to those who wait my friend.

Stacey Callinan

STAFF WRITER The 17th Door is a horrifying, breathtaking, heart stopping, walk through that tells a story of a troubled girl named Paula who is going off to Gluttire University. The creators, Robbie and Heather Luthor, lock you and your friends in a room and as the night progresses you get to go through seventeen more! You never know what creepy thing lies behind thge next door as you are put to the test of courage. Your only way out is to cry “mercy!” and then the staff will pull you from the maze and you lose bragging rights. Everything is put to the test, one room after another, each room worse then the last. You see the unexpeccted and you hear the unexpected, but can you survive the unexpected? Each room represents a classroom at the university, but with an awful twist that will send chills up your spine and leave you with a nasty tast in your mouth. Thats not all- you won’t be able to shake off the feeling after you leave the seventeen rooms of horror. Your breathing will get harder and harder as your heart skips a beat and your pulse increases while you wait to see what lies around the corner... your worst nightmare starts with the sighning of a waver.


Thanks for reading our Fall issue! Stay tuned for a super frosty cool winter issue! Love, Journalism
