Sophomores visit Seminary

staff reporter

Annah Dobson

On April 30, 2014 the Sophomore class took their annual class trip. The first stop was at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon. When they first arrived, the class was split up into four groups to take tours of the campus. They got to see pictures of post graduates such as Pastor Davison, Pastor Clark Schultz, and Pastor Don Schultz. They also got to experience the dorms, library, and different classes with real live seminarians. At the end of the tours, the students sat in the chapel for a quick question and answer session with some Lakeside alumni studying at the Seminary. The second stop for the students was the Mequon Nature Preserve where they met up with former Lakeside teacher Mr. Nickels. Mr. Nickels led the groups on a tour of the grounds where the students planted 100 trees. The last stop was the Mayfair Mall food court, where students had a short amount of time to order, eat and board the buses.

Senior trip split in two


staff reporter

Maria Manteufel

This year the senior class did things a little different. Instead of all of the seniors going to one place they decided to split into two. The seniors could not decide on a place to all go. Half of the class went to Devil’s Lake and the other half went to Kalahari. At the Kalahari the seniors that went got to enjoy the indoor waterpark and indoor theme park. There were many different things at the waterpark that one could do. Many seniors went down the many slides that the Kalahari had. Many others

enjoyed the lazy river, wave pool and the hot tub. The seniors were given a lunch of a large slice of pizza and a large drink. In the indoor theme park the seniors got to do many different things. Some of the things included mini golf, rock wall climbing, ropes course, go karts, laser tag, and other things. When asked about the trip to the Kalahari Spencer Jensen had this to say, “We had a lot of fun with the mini golf and go-karts.” The trip went well and many of the seniors enjoyed themselves.


Sydney Gronemeyer

The seniors that chose not to spend their day at a waterpark, traveled to Devil’s Lake to hike the day away. On this trip the seniors took a long hike through the scenic paths of Devil’s Lake state park. The weather was perfect for hiking. There was no too much sun, and it was not so hot that people were exhausted from their excursions. The day was capped off with a lovely campfire and grilled food.

Walking with God editor-in-chief

Sydney Gronemeyer

Isaiah 30:21 “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” It is easy to feel that you are alone on your walk with God at times. The path may seem blurred and impossible to follow. Things like this make us scared and worried about the future because we cannot know what God is trying to tell us or what he wants us to do. God assures us that he will always tell us where to go. As said in Isaiah 30:21, no matter what we do, there will always be a voice telling us where to walk. And who or what is this voice? This voice is heard through searching God’s scriptures and through prayer. Whether we realize it or not, God is giving us direction at every moment. The littlest of things could be God guiding us. Suppose you did not get invited to a party, or a certain person refuses to be your friend. This simply could be God’s way of guiding your feet away from evil. This is why even though it may be difficult to accept when things do not go the way we want them to, this is God’s was of pushing is in the right direction. So what are you going to do? Are you going to gladly listen to this voice behind you and follow wherever God leads you, or choose to follow your own path? God allows you to follow whichever path you want, but warns that His path is the only one that leads to any true reward. This reward is heaven. What earthly desire could ever outweigh the desire of eternal life? Always remember the voice that is guiding you.

The truth behind breakfast staff writer




Talk Guy

How much is too much to pay for prom clothes?

Jordan Gaal

Often students claim they are too busy to eat breakfast, or maybe they skip the meal in an effort to lose weight. Some students do not eat breakfast because they simply are not hungry in the morning. Unfortunately for these students, breakfast is an extremely important meal for many reasons, and skipping it can have long term, unintended consequences. Believe it or not breakfast actually helps a person lose weight. Anyone who says that skipping breakfast can help shed a few pounds is completely misinformed. An interesting thing happens when a person does not eat for a long period of time, the metabolism rate slows down. The metabolism rate is what determines how fast a person burns off the calories he or she eats. When the metabolism rate slows, more weight is gained. If breakfast is consumed, it actually speeds up a person’s metabolism, helping that person to lose weight. There is a reason breakfast is called the most important meal of the day, because it is. It provides the necessary energy to keep a student functioning

throughout the day. If someone often finds himself grouchy in the morning, the most likely cause is probably a lack of breakfast. The first step one can take in making morning more pleasant is eating breakfast. Registered Dietitian Jennifer Gaal comments, “Breakfast gives you the energy you need to get your body and mind working for the day.” Breakfast also keeps a person from consuming extra empty calories later when he or she becomes hungry. Not only is breakfast vital and helps to a person to stay fit, it also is

one of the easiest meals to eat. Anyone who says that he or she has no time to eat breakfast is the epitome of lazy. A good breakfast can be anything from a fast bowl of cereal, to a grab-n-go healthy granola bar. It is the one meal that requires the least effort but yields the greatest benefit. It is also important to make time for breakfast. Not eating breakfast does not make a person cool, it only makes that person tired and unhealthy. Overall breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Stu-

“You’ll have prom pictures for the rest of your life. Price does not matter!” “Anything above $300 is too much.” “I paid $150 for mine. That seems reasonable.”

dents who fail to see the benefits of breakfast and feel that they have no time to eat it are simply lazy and missing out on many of the benefits of this meal. If one still feels that breakfast is lame and not worth his or her time, then that person is blind to the facts and does not deserve the benefits that breakfast provides.

For most people, the end of the school year is a time for celebration. Seniors are finalizing their graduation party plans, applying for colleges, and maybe even studying for a few exams. Others are preparing to sleep late, travel, and have fun for the next three months. However, in Europe, students are preparing for another full month of school. Most European schools have been under the same rules and regulations for several years now. Schools have a two month summer holiday, one week fall holiday, two or three week Christmas holiday, two week spring holiday, and a one week winter break. The purpose of having school almost year round while still providing significant breaks has proven beneficial to the overall European education system. Students can retain concepts more easily. Teachers can build on past concepts with less general review. Another benefit of the European education system is that most stress the importance of math, science, and other more practical, real world classes. Many European schools also require their students to take multiple languages, most predom-

inantly English, Spanish and Chinese. These skills allow students to enter the workforce sooner after graduating from secondary school (high school) with less time spent in vocational schools (college). Because of this advantage, European students tend to have less debt when they enter a job than an American student who spent thousands of dollars on four years or more of college. The National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE)


is considering adopting one of the simpler factors of the European education system. One of the biggest problems with the American education system is students who are going through school without understanding what they are learning, and just slipping through with a passing grade. European students are required to take a standardized test before entering middle and high school. This test determines how they rank, how much they have learned and how

they learn. They are placed in the next level school at an appropriate grade and difficulty level. This way a student will be put in the appropriate learning environment at an earlier age, rather than having to take summer school or retake a course. A few states have already imposed tests and regulations like these. Education in the United States can be saved. It must, or the next generation of Americans will be far behind the rest of the world.

Strike one. Strike two. Strike three. You’re out! Monday night, the baseball team went through a seven inning game and walked off the field with a big win. Junior, Matt Struck pitched a tough but great game early on this week against Waterloo. His true talent really showed through throughout the game. The Warriors played many good innings, and had one big inning where they scored three runs. There were many great plays by everyone on the field, but Waterloo just had no way of keeping up. Throughout the game, the Warrior dugout was full smiles and laughter. The team had finished the game with a score of 6-1. It was a much deserved win for the Warrior boys. On Saturday afternoon, the team will meet at Luther Preparatory school for a double-header starting at 11 a.m. They hope to continue a winning streak againt the Phoenix.

Winter Petry Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant, won the NBA’s top individual honor Tuesday, receiving 119 first-place votes. Miami’s LeBron James, who had won the last two MVP awards and four of the last five, finished second with six first-place votes, and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers was third, Joakim Noah of the Chicago Bulls in fourth, and James Harden of the Houston Rockets in fifth place. Durant gave a very emotional speech thanking everyone from his teammates to his mother, Wanda

Pratt, at a ceremony in Edmond, Oklahoma, on Tuesday. Durant averages 32.0 points, 7.4 rebounds and 5.5 assists, becoming the first player to win both the scoring title and the MVP award in the same season since Allen Iverson did it in 2000-2001. The 6-foot-9 forward led his team to a regular season record of 59-23. The Thunder is currently in the second round of the playoffs, playing the Los Angeles Clippers in the West Conference Semi-Finals. Oklahoma hopes to continue playing, and return to the 2014 NBA Finals.
