Wax Museum comes to MB by

wax museum fast facts • The first Hollywood Wax Museum opened in 1965.

katelyn rooks coeditor in chief

A giant ape now overlooks Bypass 17 near Broadway at the Beach. The former NASCAR Café building is being transformed into the fourth Hollywood Wax Museum in the country. The other locations are in Hollywood, Calif., Branson, Miss. and Pigeon Forge, Tenn., and the family who opened the first ever Hollywood Wax Museum was recently recognized as “Heroes of Hollywood” for keeping the traditional Hollywood theme alive. “Our other attractions are in tourist destinations in the United States with great local communities where shows and attractions work together to offer great experiences for visitors,” Aileen Stein, Director of Corporate Communications, said in an email. “This is also true of Myrtle Beach so we are excited to be adding our attractions to the area.” The 26,000 square foot building will house two floors full of wax figures. However, which celebrities students would like to see at the museum are varied. “I’d really like to see Kate Upton because who wouldn’t want to take a picture with her, even as a wax figure?” senior Austin Kelly said. Junior Miranda Merry disagreed. “I want to see Lady Gaga,” she said. A mirror maze and a haunted zombie experience are also included in the admission price of $17.95. And residents of Horry, Georgetown and Brunswick, N.C., counties will get a 50 percent discount year round. The mirror maze will feature hundreds of mirrored walls, illusions and chambers along with an interactive story for guests to follow and solve. The haunted zombie experience will also have an interactive theme about a military experiment gone wrong. With the help of one solider that lived through the experiment, guests will try to escape while experiencing the realistic effects and a series of rooms and corridors. Some are excited to check the museum out. “I think putting a wax museum here is a great idea,” junior Mollee Simmons said. “It will be cool to see all the celebrities.” The museum will have a year-round staff, and one must only be 16 to apply. They are now accepting applications for box office workers as well as photographers who will take pictures of guests in the arms of a giant ape. Applications can be accessed at They plan to open sometime in mid to late June.


• It is the longest running wax museum in the United States. • A new neon sign with 1,532 light bulbs was added to the original building in 2006. • The museum has modern stars such as Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Gwenyth Paltrow and Kirsten Dunst.

• They also have classic stars like Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, John Wayne and Elvis Presley. • There are even wax figures of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. • It takes more than three months and seven artists to create a wax figure. • First, they create a clay sculpture with the exact dimensions and facial expression needed. • Next, they make a mold with natural petroleum based wax. • Then, they remove excess wax from the figure. • Next, they add color to bring it to life. • The hands and other body parts are then

05.30.14 salute! | Standing at attention, sophomore Nikki Hardwick lowers the South Carolina flag during the presentation of colors at the dedication ceremony. The dedication was attended by NJROTC members, several classes and members of Rolling Thunder. “I’m very proud we have this memorial garden and are getting this Missing Man chair,” Capt. Ross Word said. The ceremony concluded with the raising of the POW/ MIA flag. [Photo by Haley Dixon]


thank you | Admiring the Missing Man chair after the May 7 dedication, media specialist Brenda Wilder silently reflects on all that veterans have done for our country. “It [the dedication] makes me so happy I want to cry,” Wilder said. The chair is sectioned off to keep people from sitting in the chair, which is meant to remain empty. The emptiness is meant to represent the POWs and MIAs that never returned home. Students are welcome to visit the memorial garden and sit in the provided benches. [Photo by Haley Dixon]

A chair that will remain empty forever... by

haley dixon & zach hilts news writers

It’s not a challenge, but this is one chair you won’t be able to sit in on campus. The Missing Man Chair, officially established in 2012, was created by Joe D’Entremont, president of the Massachusetts Chapter of Rolling Thunder which has a mission to spread awareness about all the servicemen and women who are POW (prisoner of war) or MIA (missing in action). D’Entremont got the idea after he saw a stadium seat in Bristol, Tenn., purposefully left empty in dedication to men and women in the military who were either POW/MIA. The Missing Man Chair is placed in public buildings like restaurants, sporting facilities and even schools. The Myrtle Beach chapter of Rolling Thunder donated chairs at both St. James and Socastee high schools Oct. 21, 2011. The chairs are located in their stadiums and are meant to remain empty in memory of these missing soldiers. They also donated one here recently. However, since there is a memorial garden here dedicated to all veterans, it seemed more fitting to place the Missing Man Chair in the garden instead of in the

stadium. Media assistant Brenda Wilder and her husband, science teacher Billy Wilder, created this memorial garden in 2000. The idea of the garden came to Wilder because her father served in World War II in France and she wanted to do something to honor him and it soon turned into a project to honor all veterans. It is located in the Forest loop. “The whole idea of the garden is to remember veterans and their sacrifices,” Brenda Wilder said, “and also for the garden to feel peaceful and inviting.” Various members of the community donated the materials for the garden. Home Depot donated the mulch, Lowes donated the plants and stepping stones, Kmart donated the benches, the PE department donated the pebbles, Thompson Stone and Marble donated the boulder and Tyson Signs engraved the words into it. “The landscaping at the school was pretty poor at the time around the school,” Brenda Wilder said. “But the area around the horseshoe caught our attention.” The Wilders maintained the garden at first but with the addition of the agriculture and landscape classes, students have taken over the maintenance. Brenda Wilder hopes to see the garden maintenance

also become an opportunity for some students to earn extra credit. She also hopes the garden will expand in the future. “I would love to see the garden become as large as the horseshoe,” she said. “Classes could use the garden in their lessons, like English classes could use it for inspiration for poetry, and science classes could study the leaves.” At the dedication ceremony May 7, attended by NJROTC members, students and members of the Myrtle Beach Chapter of Rolling Thunder, principal Gaye Driggers and Rolling Thunder president Bill DeVaughn presented the chair, after a brief speech by Capt. Ross Word. “I think it’s a wonderful opportunity to let our students witness this event,” Driggers said, “because many do not realize the sacrifices the men and women make every year in serving our country that allows us to make our own choices.” Brenda Wilder said the dedication of the chair makes her happy. “I think it’s just an extension of our original plan for the garden,” she said. Capt. Word, who has a personal connection, said he was proud to have been a part of this dedication. “I went through one and a half years of aviation training with a friend. After we

finished training, he went off to be in a fleet squadron on the USS Midway, and I was first squadron on the USS Enterprise,” Capt. Word said. “In January 1972, he was shot down and became MIA for 31 years. In 2003, his remains were found in North Vietnam, and in 2004 he was buried in Arlington.” DeVaughn got involved with Rolling Thunder because it also reminded him of a close friend. “A good friend of mine, his dad is MIA,” DeVaughn said. “He never knew his dad because it happened when he was an infant.” Rolling Thunder’s Myrtle Beach chapter has two members with family members that are MIA and three members who were POWs; one from World War II, one from Korea and one who was the last POW to be released from Vietnam. “I hope that they [the students] see how important it is to remember all the veterans and sacrifices,” Capt. Word said. Currently, there are more than 83,000 service members who are MIA and one POW who is being held by the Taliban, 29-year-old Bowe Bergdahl. “They are not forgotten,” DeVaughn said. “We will find them and bring them home.”

Who really cares? A simple question. “How are you doing?” is just that. We use it to start a normal conversation with anyone. The answer could range from “I’m doing well” to “I’m having the worst day ever!” I get every question but that. People ask me “What’s wrong with your legs?” and “How did it happen?” I don’t mind answering them because it allows me to teach those who haven’t heard of my disability, spina bifida. I also get asked “Do you need me to help you with anything?” I like that people will go out of their way to help someone like me, who’s never done the same for others. It’s just that I don’t want to rely on others to do things I can do myself.

I really want to be asked “How are you doing?” but not in terms of how my day’s going. I just want to be able to talk to someone who would actually care. What I’d start off with is the positives, which are a lot. I sometimes get to skip to the front of lines, I got out of doing the heavier stuff in gym, I even participated in the Special Olympics twice. And, yeah, getting to speed around school on my scooter is an awesome perk too. Even though my disability is a common birth defect, many don’t know what it means. I feel better knowing that even though many can’t relate to what I’m going through, I’m more respected because of it. There’s only one negative I can really think

the quiet one by zach hilts news staff of, but it’s a big one: the looks. I’m used to having little kids look at me weird in public, not-so subtly asking their mom or dad, “Why’s that boy walking funny?” and then hear the parents apologize to me while scolding the kid. I even joke about my walk, telling my friends that on prom night I’d really look like a penguin, so why does it bother me? The reason is I have no one to relate with. It’s hard being the only one of your friends with something like this, not being able to really discuss it without getting blank stares. The phrase “I know how you feel”

fits in a lot of situations, but not mine. When my friends say they know how I feel, only saying that because they just want to make me feel better, it makes me feel worse. Many do know what I feel, just not any that I’m close with. Again, don’t get me wrong: I know other people have disabilities far worse than mine, and I’m thankful I have what I call a “mild” case. I’m also grateful that my friends at least try to comfort me. Sometimes, though, I wish that my friends had to walk in my shoes. Maybe then the pity could stop and real empathy could begin.

ce Cream


ela rayburn ditor & centerspread writer Ice cream cones and summer go hand in hand. Ice cream has been around so long no one’s really sure who created it, but ice cream was created some time in the second century. Today Americans consume more ice cream than any other nationality. The average person in the U.S. consumes six gallons per year. That’s a little bit smaller than an average size microwave. The first documentation of ice cream in America appeared in a letter written in 1744 by a Maryland governor. In 1777, the first advertisement for ice cream appeared in the New York Gazette. Presidents are known for loving ice cream, some spending enormous amounts of money and some making sure the public knows exactly how they like their ice cream. George Washington spent $200 on ice cream during the summer of 1790, which would be $5,260 in today’s money. President Thomas Jefferson had a favorite 18-step recipe for a dessert that resembles Baked Alaska now. President Theodore Roosevelt wasn’t a big fan of ice cream. Roosevelt banned ice cream sodas on Sundays because it was a distraction from the day of the Sabbath. That’s why soda jerks invented the ice cream sundae, to allow store owners to do business. In 1984, Ronald Reagan made July national ice cream month. If you look to the left, you will find out more facts about ice cream, sundaes and cones.

With the release of “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, which topped the charts in 2012, thrift shopping experienced a revolution. Teens immersed themselves in this new trend. They’ve recreated old looks with vintage clothes, making them their own and putting a new twist on an old style. The entertainment staff has recreated styles of their own through thrift shopping at stores such as Goodwill and Second Time Around.

05.30.14 DJ ON THE RADIO

Kinard rocks it on local WKZQ 10 a.m.-3 p.m. by

micheal curry entertainment writer

Video didn’t kill the radio; at least not at WKZQ. WKZQ 96.1 has been on the air since 1965 and has been playing new rock and alternative ever since the '90s. One of the DJs at WKZQ is BJ Kinard, a radio veteran of 18 years and counting. He’s been with the station as program director for four years. “I used to work at 99 X in Atlanta, and when I moved down here I wasn’t going back to work, but the station called me and offered me a job and since the music they played was my favorite, I immediately took it,” Kinard said. Senior Kalei Strange is an avid listener. “I listen to it because I’m tired of hearing the same old auto tuned, computer-generated pop music. I want rock; I want the music I love,” Strange said. She also considered working on the radio as a career choice.

“I think it’s a possibility for me and it’d be really cool to talk to people on their way to and from places, to talk to them while they’re driving at night and in a way be there for them playing music for them,” Strange said. “I feel that it’d be a really intimate job that I would like.” 'KZQ also has frequent giveaways for a myriad of new rock concerts and events in the area and out of state, like the upcoming Bonnaroo in Tennessee. Junior Morgana Hart is one of many listeners who has won tickets before from the station. “It was when I was in middle school. I called and they said I was the ninth caller,” Hart said. “I was so excited and happy because I never thought I’d win something from these radio giveaways.” But they do more than just call-in giveaways. “We look for things that relate to the station and reflect our listeners so we can give back,” Kinard said. “We also like to add little twists instead of just ‘here’s a pair of tickets; have fun’ as in we add private sessions, local events.” One example is when they held a beach clean up. Those who participated were in a drawing and the winners got back stage master control | DJ BJ Kinard shows tickets for Rise Against and got to hang where the signals from all four staout with them afterwards. tions in the building are sent out “In all honesty, it makes the experience to the antenna. [Photo by Micheal more personal because you’ll remember Curry] doing something bigger than just calling in and getting tickets,” Kinard said.


testing, one-two | DJ BJ Kinard listens to the transition between a song and a break before it airs to make it run tighter and smoother. They dump everything on their computers with what they plan on airing that day. “Sometimes we like to play the song over the break in the background so you hear the song and get a heads-up of what’s coming up. Other times we leave it until the end, fading in at the last four seconds or so of the break,” Kinard said. “As program director, you’re over everything, except sales, though I do work with them to assure ads.I also do promos and have to come up with ideas for the station, but overall, the music has to go through me and I decide how, what and when it’s played for Star and 'KZQ. [Photo by Micheal Curry] Selecting the playlist is time-consuming. The station receives CDs from a number of bands. DJs listen to every single one and choose the ones they like. They then upload the files of the songs into their servers. Then they have to manually organize songs for each hour of their shows. After the music is uploaded and organized into a list for the day, the DJs also make minor changes to the list. “I get in at around 7 a.m. and leave around 5 p.m.,” Kinard said. “Though I put in at least 10 hours of work each day since I run two stations, I’ll tweak the 'KZQ playlist to get commercials and our breaks just right and then move on to other things with my job, but I love every second of it.” One part of his job that he especially likes it meeting musicians. Kinard has interviewed numerous ones like Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters, Justin Furstenfeld from Blue October and Jared Leto from 30 Seconds to Mars. “That’s a fun part of this job, being able to meet these people face to face and talk to them about their music,” Kinard said. “I remember a time when I was at a 30 Seconds to Mars concert when Jared Leto said my name before the crowd and asked me to come out. Now that was a unicorn moment.” Kinard offers advice to those who want a career in radio. “At first it’s hard, talking over a mic with thousands listening and you don’t want to mess and up make them dislike you,” Kinard said. “But really, what it comes down to is doing what you think is best on the air because I mean you’re picking the music and you’re the one who’s talking to the people. It’s as easy as you make it.”

‘Xanadu’ rehearses for Main Stage by

gunner huggins coeditor in chief

The Drama Department aims to do something no other school in South Carolina has ever done, take Main Stage. Main stage plays are performed every night at Nationals as the main entertainment. Everyone attends these performances and it brings publicity to the performing arts. In June 2015, the Educational Theater Association will sponsor Nationals for the 52nd year. This international festival, which will be held at the University of Nebraska, is invite only and requires an application one year in advance. “It is the premiere high school theatre festival,” piano and music theory teacher Matt Ward said. For the upcoming festival, Ward plans to prepare the musical “Xanadu,” which is a musical comedy based on a book. A group of judges will fly in and assess “Xanadu,” which will be performed as a dinner theater in the fall. Depending on their assessments, they will then decide whether “Xanadu” will be a Main Stage performance at the festival. “There are multiple performance venues, but Main Stage is the top honors,” Ward said. “No school from South Carolina has ever been on Main Stage.” Making it onto Main Stage isn’t going to be easy. The cast has to be ready for anything that might be thrown at them. “[We need to] have real moments before show time so that we can know what to expect during a performance,” Ward said. “[Also], because it is a comedy we have to find a happy medium between overdoing it and letting our audience get the jokes.” Traveling to Nebraska to perform also poses a challenge. “The set has to be impressive because it has to be able to travel,” Ward said. “The financial issues begin to come into play.” Ward had to consider many plays before picking one for Nationals. “It is challenging to pick a play that appeals to high school students,” Ward said.

[Photo by Gunner Huggins] “I normally like darker shows, but I like the story line and music, and there is roller-skating.” The cast is preparing for roller-skating by taking classes to learn the proper techniques. If they do make it to Main Stage, it would be a huge accomplishment. “It is a big honor for us,” Ward said. “For me, as a new teacher, to be able to get Main Stage so early in my career means a lot. But the kids are the ones who are seen and it wouldn’t be possible without their talent.” Junior Taj Cummings knows how he would feel if they make Main Stage. “I would be eternally grateful to the judges and extremely proud of the cast for performing well enough to get in,” he said. Ward knows what it will take to be chosen and has set goals accordingly. “Something a lot of theatres struggle with is having all props ready by the beginning of dress rehearsals,” Ward said. “My goal is to have everything ready to go by the end of the summer so when we start rehearsals we will be ready to go.”

Some Panthers travel by

miller redding sports writer

For some student athletes, school sports are only one of the places they play their sport of choice. “Travel teams help you keep up your skills during the off season,” junior Sophia Starr, who plays varsity softball and has played travel ball for six years, said. Junior Ally Ethridge, who plays varsity soccer and has played travel ball for 13 years, agreed. “I play travel soccer to stay in shape for the high school season,” she said. Travel team members say these teams can offer more than a high school team can. “Outside of school it’s more competitive and more of a chance you can get seen by colleges,” junior Marissa Nunes, who plays varsity softball and has played travel ball for eight years, said. “There are college showcase teams specifically designed for colleges to notice you.” Sophomore and varsity soccer player Katelyn Perry, who has played travel ball for 10 years, echoed that sentiment. “You get exposed to different competition and get to see other ways of playing soccer,” she said. Playing for a travel team takes a lot of dedication. “I can’t do anything on the weekends,” she said. “I don’t get home until 10 because the practices run so late after school.”

Most members agree that travel teams are more challenging than high school teams. “It’s definitely harder than high school because the people that play travel actually want to be there and they aren’t just doing it for something to do in the spring,” Perry said. Junior Kha’doe Crosby, who plays varsity soccer and has played travel ball for eight years, agreed. “The training is quality, and you won’t get the same quality in high school,” he said. “It’s harder because everyone is at a much higher level of play.” Baseball player Justin Elko, who has been playing travel ball for five years, also said travel team is harder. “It’s harder because you play outside of your state, and you’re playing at a higher level of talent,” he said. But Starr made another point. “I believe its easier than playing for a school team because there’s less pressure,” she said. Cost is another factor athletes must consider. Just to join a team can cost anywhere from $800 to $1000 and then there are travel expenses. And the cost isn’t the only drawback. “It interferes with my school,” sophomore and varsity soccer player Bailey Provencal, who has played travel ball for 11 years, said. “I have long nights and it’s hard to study.” But most who play for a travel team can agree it’s worth it. “You’re able to make friends and meet

people from all over,” Nunes said. “It’s a lot of fun because you don’t always play the same people.” Crosby said it will help him after high school. “I would like to play at the next level, in college,” Crosby said. “Then go professional.” Ethridge has similar aspirations.

“I want to play when I go to college,” Ethridge said. Travel teams offer more to their players. “There are a lot of opportunities if you take them,” Crosby said. “You get put in front of a big audience in big showcase tournaments and there are many chances to be seen by colleges.”

Pavilion for $1. Senior Logan Jones, junior Krystal Sanchez, junior Zach Hilts, junior Alia Sadek, junior Markell Allen and junior Mackenzie Godwin prepare for the May 16 sale. “I sell snow cones because it’s fun, easy and just gets everyone in a good mood,” Sanchez said. “Who doesn’t love a snow cone on a hot Friday? It’s fun to make weird mixtures that people ask for. My favorite is called ‘Rainbow Special’ that Markell and I make by mixing all the flavors to make it look like a rainbow.” [Photo by Taylor Estes]

Playing football at lunch freshmen Nasier Neosmith and Chris Lopez both try to grab the ball. “It gives me something to do other than walking around, but I usually eat lunch in the last five minutes in the 300 Concourse,” Lopez said. “It also helps me catch better for football. If I didn’t play football at lunch, I would probably sit at the Pavilion.” Some also play informal games of basketball, volleyball, football and frisbee. Since one lunch was instituted last year, students have been able to spend more time with friends, participate in clubs and activities and move around campus. Students can also get extra help from teachers during lunch, as well as make up attendance days if they have exceeded their five unexcused absences. [Photo by Vic Woods]
