Breaking News, the royal couple has had their second child! Prince George has a new baby sister who not only has the title “sister,” but also, “princess.” Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born on May 2 at St. Mary’s hospital in west London. The princess was an average size, weighing eight pounds and three ounces. Princess Charlotte’s name is a combination of her relative’s names. Charlotte, her first name, comes from her paternal grandfather, Charles. Elizabeth comes from her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and Diana comes from her late grandmother, Diana. That is such a well thought out name. Princess Charlotte is now fourth in line to the throne, so she probably will not be reigning anytime soon. Although the princess does not know it, people all around the world are obsessing about her new life. Just twelve short hours after Kate arrived at the hospital, she was standing outside with William, holding the newborn baby in her arms. Kate whispered to William while they were outside, “I hope she’s not cold.” Out there in the cold, Charlotte was introduced to photos and stardom for the first time. On May 3, Charlotte was introduced to her whole family. The family all came to say hi, and to see the new edition. With the set of chubby cheeks that she has, who wouldn’t want to go and see her face to face? The royals choose not to baptize their children, but to christen them. Charlotte has not been christened yet, but she will be in the future. She will also be addressed as “Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge.” The world has warmly welcomed this new bundle of joy, and will continue to follow her story as she grows up.

It is coming up to a very stressful time of the school year. This is the time that every student dreads, but yet loves. No student ever looks forward to taking an exam, but they look forward to getting the exams over and starting summer vacation. Exams are very tough because a student needs to recall everything that he/she has learned during the semester, and then take a gigantic test on the information.

For those who care about how they do on the exams, be sure to study. Some students sit down for hours and hours, days upon days, and they still can’t remember a thing when it comes time to taking the exam. Others can sit down for a couple of hours, look something over briefly, and then ace the exam. No student is the same, so be sure to find the right study pattern that works best. Not studying at all will definitely not help the situation. Students should study all of the material that will be covered on the

exam. They should start studying a couple of days before the exams, so that they are not trying to cram all of the material into their brain the night before. Cramming never works out too well. So, as Lakeside closes yet another school year, please make sure everyone studies hard, and does their very best to the glory of God. Seniors, have a blessed graduation, and God’s blessings on the years to come. Have a fantastic summer vacation Lakeside students, faculty, and staff!

Many soon-to-be-former Lakeside students will be leaving their homes for the first time later this year. They’ll have to deal with paying taxes, and buying their own necessities. This can be a rough time for people that might not have enough money for fun things like new clothing. Keeping up with the latest trends is hard when funds are low, but that is no reason to give up. A recent trend among college age people has been thrifting, which is just a fancy word for shopping at thrifts shops. A lot of people do not like buying clothes at thrift stores because they sometimes smell “weird” or look “ugly”, but these problems are easily solved with a little creative thinking. The smell is the easiest part. If the article does not have any directions on the tag, Great! It just needs one or two washes. Some things that are “dry-clean only,” just need to be hung-dry

after washing. Others cannot be washed, but since the problem is the smell all that needs to be done it to throw the item into a dryer-bag and run it through a heat cycle. The “ugly” factor is a bit more difficult. A lot of cool modifications can be done using simple cut and tie methods. The best part about this is that the clothing looks “found” or “reclaimed” and that style is still in.

On March 6, Officer Matt Kenny shot and killed 19 year old Tony Robinson in Madison. Kenny fired at Robinson because he was jumping in front of oncoming cars, and attempted to strangle someone. Kenny then shot at Robinson for self-defense. The shooting lead to many protests throughout Madison. The protesters chanted, “Hands up, don’t shoot.” The protesters also carried around banners saying, “Black Lives Matter.” Many arrests were needed because some of the protesters were getting out of hand. On May 12, Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne declared the shooting and killing of Tony Robinson a “lawful use of deadly police force.” After Officer Kenny was declared not guilty, more protests arose, and more people were arrested.

“When he had received the drink, Jesus said, ‘It is finished.’ With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” John 19:30 staff reporter

Joy Alcorn

The theme this year is complete. Complete is a cool word because it has many synonyms such as, whole, together, and finished. Another translation for the above verse is, “paid in full”, which is the basis of the Christian faith. Without the word “finished” faith in Jesus would have no meaning. Christians would have to be perfect to get to heaven and that is impossible. Of course, many other religions, and even some forms of Christianity, believe that they have to work to get to heaven, but luckily for the rest, Jesus finished the job for them long ago.

Wisdom from

Summer is for television Locker

the WTW T Around the school any student could look around and see the cleanliness of the halls, classrooms, even the bathrooms. Everyone knows who keeps it looking spotless and vibrant, but who actually takes the time to say even a brief “thank you” to the men who do this? Most everyone has probably heard of the term ‘unsung heroes’. Well, if the award exists, the Unsung Heroes of the Year Award would have to go to the Lakeside janitorial staff. Think of all the things that the janitorial staff do just to keep everyone comfortable in the school. You wouldn’t walk on a layer of garbage in the hallways would you? Of course not. The janitorial staff makes sure that every square inch of the floors are 100% garbage-free. And that is not all. They take out the trash daily so that faculty, students, and visitors alike do not need to bring gas masks or plug their noses. They clean the toilets nightly so that those who sit on the can do not feel the need to vomit, too. You think those are nasty jobs to do? The jobs previously mentioned only scratch the surface of what these men do to show their love for Lakeside. What some people do not know is just how long the janitors stay on campus to beautify it. The sun may have gone down for two hours, but they stay and clean and mop and spray and wipe to get the school to shine like a freshly polished dress shoe. So the next time you see one of these unsung heroes, go out of your way to thank them. And not just once or to one of the staff members, but to all of them multiple times, and show your appreciation to what these men have done.

Birds sing in chorus as a warm, gentle breeze lazily blows through the trees overhead. A lawnmower’s vengeful path through too-long blades of grass is heard whining in the distance. It is summer, but you are nowhere to be seen outside. Where are you? You are sitting in your dark, cool basement, of course, still in your pajamas watching TV. In fact, you have likely been there for two days; you should probably take a shower. But when you are half-way through binge watching the 9th season of The Office, there’s no time for trivial things such as a change of clothes. The only problem with this is the fact that you’re watching the 9th season of The Office; why would you do that to yourself when there’s a wealth of

It is hard to avoid reality television shows when scrolling through channels. Reality shows are everywhere. Duck Dynasty, Total Divas, Keeping up with the Kardashians, the list goes on and on. But the question is, what are these shows trying to teach us? In the new reality show Buckwild, teenagers are shown as daredevils and unmannered brats, which is not a completely true stereotype. These shows seem to promote sinning and not repenting. This is not right. Stay away from these shows. They are trying to haul

shows far better deserving of your attention? While there are many great shows, here are 3 of the best to binge watch in the summer. The first good show to binge watch in the summer is Arrow. You do not need to be a superhero fan to enjoy one of the most recently successful comic book shows. It is successful for a reason too; with great action scenes, memorable characters, and a fun storyline, what is not to love about this show? The second good show to binge watch this summer is 30 Rock. 30 Rock is a comedy show that really deserves to be watched at least twice in order to appreciate the wealth of jokes constantly thrown at you. With lovable and hilarious characters, 30 Rock is one of the best comedy shows to watch this summer. The final show you should defi-

nitely binge watch this summer is Lost. Any self-respecting fan of TV has probably heard of this show, and for good reason. Lost had the perfect combination of drama, suspense, action, and more than enough mystery to keep you coming back to find answers. When almost 50 people survive a plane crash and land on a island in the middle of nowhere, they soon find that things go bump in the night, and that this is no ordinary island.

The team had some early pitching and fielding mistakes that led to a five run first inning, but the Warriors did not give up. They only allowed three more runs in the next five innings of work. The team swung the bats consistently but couldn’t string together enough hits for some runs. With only three strikeouts for the day by the Warriors, Mauston had plenty of balls to field.

The Varsity Lady Warriors went to Lodi to face the the Lodi Blue Devils. They were ready and had their bats going to start the game. Holye Doyle was on the mound for the Warriors. She pitched a complete game but pitching was not the story of the game. In the first inning the Warriors came out swinging for the fences. They scored eight runs in the top of the first and took control of the game. The Blue Devils scored two runs of their own in the bottom of the first and the game was set at eight to two. Lakeside would scored two more runs in the second to stretch the lead to eight runs. After the second inning Lodi picked it up. They scored four runs in the third and six more runs in the fourth to take the lead. Lodi had erased an eight run lead to take the lead for the first time. They were up by two runs heading

into the fifth inning. After no runs were scored in the fifth the Warriors scored three runs in the top of the sixth to recapture the lead. With a score of thirteen to twelve the Warriors would set in and never relinquish it. The final score was just that thirteen to twelve and the Lady Warriors walk out of Lodi with a win. Lakeside had a number of girls hit well on tuesday like Winter Petry. She had two doubles in the two hits she got. Ashley Kohls and Jen Schubkegel both hit home runs. The Warriors only struck out four times as a team in the game where-

wouldn’t last for long. After going down 7-2, the Warriors decided it was time to rally in the bottom of the third inning. The team took the lead and didn’t look back after that. The team was up 14-8 at the bottom of the fifth and was looking to 10 run rule the Cardinals. With two quick outs, the four runs that they needed didn’t look so easy to get. The Warriors pushed through with their last out and ended the game with a double by Matthies Winters. The 18-8 win was a team effort as the Warriors look to have another strong two games against Lake Mills tonight.

Things to Watch

Deflategate in New England May sixth was a big day in the eyes of the NFL. Yes this day was the date in which Ted Wells, a NFL detective, released his report on his investigation of the New England Patriots. This was a report that stated that “It was more probable than not that Tom Brady knew that the balls had been underinflated.” The Wells report stirred the nation. In his 240 page report he tells that Tom Brady had texted with the ball boys before the game. That Tom probably knew that this was going on and that he himself told the ball boys to do this. As the Wells report gained momentum and reaction from the football universe Tom Brady prepared to go speak at a college not about the report but as an preset interview. May seventh Tom did the in-

Roger Goodell dropped the hammer. He also made the Patriots give up a first round and fourth round draft picks. The Patriots were also slapped with a one million dollar fine. This is the biggest fine ever handed down in NFL history, but that is not the big news. No, it is that Patriots Quarterback, the face of the NFL, was suspended for the first four games of the NFL season. Tom Brady was considered one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history. He was always looked at as the best competitor and a stand up guy until this happened. Bob Kraft was always close to the Commissioner and the NFL wanted to send a message. That no matter how close you are to the Commissioner, if you do something to cheat or threaten the integrity of the NFL you will be punished severely

NFL draft, but the one prospect that everyone in Wisconsin probably had their eyes on was Melvin Gordon. Melvin Gordon helped Wisconsin during the three seasons he played on the team. He was thinking about declaring for the draft after his sophomore season last year, but he decided to stay for another year. The extra year Melvin Gordon stayed for did nothing but helped his draft stock as he was the nation’s top running back and had a phenomenal season. He ended up being the second running back taken in the draft behind Todd Gurley. Melvin Gordon went to the San Diego Chargers on the 15th pick of the draft. The San Diego Chargers express their excitement to add Melvin Gordon to their team and say that they will have a great year.
