It’s clumsy. It’s custardy. It’s horrory. It’s showy. That is right, it is the Clumsy Custard Horror Show. This play will be performed in a mere two weeks. That is exciting for some, but not so much for others. Specifically the actors. Two weeks is not a whole lot of time. But the show has come a long way since day one. More than 65 hours of practice have been put into this, and it gets better every practice. It has been a fun experience participating in the play, even with a minor role. It has been a great time so far, and its all uphill from here with the performances just around the corner. Only two weeks left, though, wow! That is both good and bad. It is certainly looked forward to though, by both the actors participating, and people that plan to just view it. Everyone should plan on attending the play. Yeah, you. The person sitting in the lunch room reading this article. You should see it. It is funny, it has audience participation, and it is awesome. Prepare to get clumsy. Tickets for the Clumsy Custard Horror Show are available for purchase in the school office. $7 for adults and $4 for students and children are the ticket prices.

Technology has always been a center point at Lakeside, and the school is constantly trying to keep the computer systems as new and advanced as possible. Next year will be a great year in technology. This week, as everyone has already seen, a system of televisions to show announcements have been installed around the school. The biggest change for next year has to be the addition of Chromebooks. Each student in the school

will get his or her own Chromebook to use. In case anyone have been living under a rock this past year, a Chromebook is a lightweight laptop that is designed to run web applications rather than traditional programs. As a result, Chromebooks run much faster and smoother than a comparable Windows based computer such as the netbooks Lakeside has now. Bringing the computer-student ratio up past 1:1 will be a great thing for the school, but how

will so many computers be maintained? That is where the dedicated four-student team called “Computer Maintenance” comes in. Running throughout the school behind the scenes, the team keeps everything up and running smoothly, and gives everyone who needs it access to the computers. This group is lead by teacher, Mr. Klug. As technology constantly advances, Lakeside tries to stay with it as best as possible, and make sure everyone can access the great tool called the Internet.

Children from all of the different elementary gradeschools crowded into the halls of Lakeside this past weekend. These eager young lads and lasses came to Lakeside as early as eight in the morning on their day off to participate in one of the highlights of their musical year: the annual Lakeside Fine Arts Fair. Fine Arts Fair is something that most Lakeside students have participated in in one way or another. A student may have had their band or choir director force them to compete, been a willing participant, or may have signed on as a student volunteer in exchange for a few service hours. Whatever the case may be, Fine Arts Fair is no walk in the park, even when compared to its big brother WSMA.

Volunteers arrived before the first performances, and even before the judges to begin setting up the concession stand, make sure rooms were open, and get assigned to their jobs for the day. There were also the lucky few student volunteers who are also a part of this year’s spring drama The Clumsy Custard Horror Show who got to wander around the school in costume and in-character to promote the production. By the end of the individual performances and mass rehearsals on Saturday, everyone was thoroughly exhausted, but not done quite yet. Everybody got to come back again on Sunday for the contest’s finale: two concerts held at 1:30 and 4:00. Fortunately, students only had to perform in one concerts and were then able to go home. It was another stunning year for everyone involved.

As the end of the school year approaches, many of us may be feeling stressed out. Whether it is the seniors stressing out about college, or the actors worrying about The Clumsy Custard Horror Show, we know that we can go to someone with all of our troubles and requests. In the passage listed above, we find the comforting hope that we are not alone, and that God is listening to our problems and concerns, just as a dear friend would. We also know that someday Jesus will take us to be with him in Heaven, freeing us from all our burdens forever. Remembering that he is with us helps take away the fear of the future because we know he is guiding us every step of the way. Not only that, but we know we can turn to him at any time and he will be there listening to our prayers and watching over us.

Bro is one of the most overused words in the modern English language, and this must stop.

This is also just lightly touching on the matter of the aforementioned “bromance.” It is not okay to be in love with a “bro,” even if one is just joking around. Bros do love each other, but not romantically. Keep them separate! Fraternities are the only places where bromances are treated as acceptable, though they are weird.

heroes to secularism and superheroes to religion. Action heroes deal with immediate, external properties of the world, while superheroes deal with the interior elements of humanity. Superheroes are colorful incarnations of the human spirit. It has long been a common human practice to depict certain emotions with either a certain animal or human form. For example, Spiderman was inspired by the Anansi tribe’s story “Anansi the Spider-Man.” In this way, people put their hopes, fears,

dreams, emotions and all unspeakable facets of human nature into corporeal form and lose them in fantastical worlds to see what they may learn from them. Thor, Captain America, and Wolverine. No matter what view one has one superheroes, one can be certain that superheroes represent good to those who watch them. They take down evil with a “bang” save the world, and go back to living their lives, only to repeat the process all over again in order to bring peace to earth.

What is your favorite fast food restraunt?


The dawn of the superhero age atman, Superman, and Iron Man. These superheroes everyone has heard of. First created in DC and Marvel comics, these names are now iconic in today’s society. Movies have been made about these superheroes. The superhero franchise is very popular with today’s generation. Little boys (and sometimes little girls) will dress up as Batman for Halloween and will have Avengers-themed birthday parties. Even teenagers are fans of superheroes. One is able to walk the halls of Lakeside and see fellow students wearing superhero shirts, shoes, lunchboxes, and even watches. A certain teacher at Lakeside even has Batman paraphernalia in his classroom. But what has caused this obsession with superheroes? Why do so many people look up to them? The answer to this prevalent question lies within the history of the superheroes Batman and Superman. They are among the oldest, most successful, and longest-running superheroes in comic history. Coming from two very different backgrounds (Superman an alien and Batman an orphan), these two icons appeal to people of all ages. They represent something deeper to society than just an action-packed comic book or movie. One might compare action


How do you get out of the friendzone?


ey what is up A-bro-ham Lincoln!” “Where have you been, my broski?” These ridiculous phrases have undoubtedly been heard by every teenager at some point. Whether or not it is a co-worker, friend, neighbor, classmate, or even a family member, everyone has heard a ‘bro’ over user... a Brover user. This epidemic needs to be stopped. Not only is it unnecessary and stupid to constantly reference a weird brotherly connection between two friends, the worst part is when a pair of male friends develops a “bro romance,” commonly known as a “bromance.” Here is a piece of advice: keep bros and romance separate. Of course, it is natural to feel close to one’s friends, close to one’s “bros.” Some would even encourage all people to develop close personal friendships between male and female bros. But does one really need to constantly remind the world that two people are bros by inserting this word into every single conversation ever? Absolutely not. “Bro” is one

Athlete of the week sports editor

Sydney Gronemeyer Madison Dumke has overcome the great trial of recovering from a torn ACL right back to being an outstanding athlete. Madi’s freshman year, she made the Varsity cross country team and the JV basketball team. She amazed everyone with her cross country talents and much was expected from her in basketball in the upcoming years. In her sophomore year, Madi made the decision to give up her spot on the track team and test her talents in soccer. She truly loved the sport and did quite well in it, but unfortunately ended up tearing her ACL during this season. Due to this injury, Madi was unable to compete in the next cross country season and most of the next basketball season. But, as soon as Madi did come back to basketball, she was just as great as always. Despite injury, Madi continues to be one of the fastest players on all of her teams. She plans to go back out for cross country next year and can not wait to play basketball again. Currently, Madi is improving in soccer. She only started playing the sport last year and is now a Vasity starting player. Much is expected to come from Madi next year. She says a true athlete is “someone who dedicates a part of themselves to a sport and tries to be the best that they can be.” Madi never takes life too seriously and has fun with everything. When asket what her greates sports accomplishment is, she responded, “I have a high score of 66 on Flappy Bird.”

Ben Tweit Coaching can be stressful, tiring, and taxing, and takes a lot of patience. Coach Jim Bauer has displayed that he has a lot of patience, and that has paid off. His coaching rubs off on the players he coaches and makes them better. It has also led him to be inducted into the Lutheran Sports Association of Wisconsin Hall of Fame. But even he says that he could not have been inducted by himself. He says, “All coaching awards are a reflection on your players. You get coaching awards because of what your players accomplished. The award is theirs.” He also never wants to be all about individual awards. “My focus is never on awards but on competing in the Conference. It has always been about the Conference to me. I want my teams to be known as teams that are competitive in the Conference year after year.”

A person usually needs advice to start coaching. A person could definitely go to Coach Bauer and get superb advice from him, such as this: “To be a coach it takes a bunch of blessings from the Lord: The Lord has blessed me with 1.a supportive wife. 2. Great assistant coaches. 3.Parents who give encouragement to their sons and 4. A whole bunch of young men who are willing to work hard and give themselves unselfishly for a common goal.” This shows that coaching not only takes knowledge and experience, but also the Lord’s blessings, too. That same person who wants to start coaching but does not know where to start can “go to MLC and become a teacher. That’s what a coach is, a teacher. If you become a teacher you will have plenty of opportunities to coach.” Congratulations to Coach Bauer for his induction, but also on his ability to make boys into Warriors.

on the road again to play at Johnson Creek, where they loss 9-2. Monday afternoon the Warriors played Cambridge at home where costly errors led to the fall of the warriors 8-3. On Tuesday the Warriors took on New Glarus. The game ended in the sixth inning with a three run home run by Bailey Kerr and a score of 13-3. While the less than ideal spring sports weather put a damper on the

first week of games, and prevented teams from getting outside for practice, the Warriors were able to work through and get most of the scheduled games in. With a few kinks to work out, the Warriors are very optimistic about the upcoming season. With lots of leadership provided by the five seniors, the Warriors hope to compete for a conference championship. The Warriors play Friday at home against Fort Atkinson.

Kiana Krszjzaniek This season may not have started out the greatest, but the girls really started kicking it into high gear for Tuesday’s game against Jefferson. Last Friday the Varsity team, coached by James Garrison and Josh Vinluan, suffered a disappointing defeat 10-1 against Lake Country at home. It did not help that the weather was awful for players and spectators alike; it snowed, sleeted, and hailed at different points and was overall very cold and windy. The Warriors’ goal was scored by junior Macy Marcks in the first half of the game. On Tuesday, however, the Varsity girls played Jefferson at home and won 2-1, with goals scored by


senior Olivia Schieber and freshman Jessica Wagner. For this game there were a few raindrops during warmups, but they all cleared away by the kickoff. At the same time, the JV girls had their first game, also against Jefferson, over at St. Paul’s school. They played with one substitute, and lost 2-1. Sophomore Nora Stake scored the goal. The score had been tied for much of the game. The JV team is coached by Jayne Meske and Brett Kopplin. This year there is no completely set roster for Varsity and JV. Some girls are asked to suit up for both, and a player’s game performance has the potential to move her from one to the other.

Tracy McMillan, the mother. The title of the show is a reference to its distinctive style. In the year 2030, Ted tells his children how he met their mother through flashbacks. Although the constant flashbacks and flashforwards could be confusing, especially in some of the later seasons, the show is truly a gem. Surprisingly, three of the main cast members had not seen more than meager success before the show, with the exception of Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan. Thanks to How I Met Your Mother, Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders and Jason Segel have become some of the most successful actors and director in the business. If one has never seen How I Met Your Mother, quite simply, that person is missing out. It is a humorous show with a relatable, down to earth cast of caring, loving friends, who always have each other’s backs. How I Met Your Mother is one of the greatest modern sitcoms aired. Thanks to Netflix, this great show can be preserved for future fans.

Legendary!” Unless one has been asleep for the past ten years or so, one has most certainly heard this phrase. It is the popular catchphrase of Barney Stinson on the hit television show, How I Met Your Mother. This legendary show has had fans laughing, crying, and most importantly laughing, throughout its nine seasons on CBS. From the “Slap Bet,” to the “Jinx,” to the “Ducky Tie,” there is something great for everyone on this show. The show first aired in 2005. and is set in New York City. The main action of the show surrounds Ted Mosby, played by Josh Radnor, on his life journey through adulthood. Other cast members include Ted’s best friends Barney, played by Neil Patrick Harris; Marshall Eriksen, played by Jason Segel; Lily Aldrin, played by Alyson Hannigan; and Robin Scherbatsky, played by Cobie Smulders.
