Rumor control is officially here! If you thought you knew the truth, think again... By Sara Humphrey & Samantha Callahan >sHumphS744@ops.org & sCallaS327@ops.org

Sara & Samantha asked students what they think about rumors.

“I don’t like them. Rumors are demeaning, the person spreading them looks less intelligent and it makes the person they’re talking about have a bad reputation. No one wins.” Jacasta BarberHolmes, 11 “Rumors are just made up stuff thought up by insecure people to feel better about themselves.” Andrea Fletcher, 11

Rumor 1: Is there really a freshman beatdown? Truth: It’s the first day of school and you walk by a kid being thrown into a locker. You think to yourself, “Oh he was probably annoying, he had it coming.” But in all reality happened simply because that kid was a freshman. Tyler Carmichael* experienced freshman beatdown. “I was walking down the hallway when two guys asked me if I was a freshman.” After replying yes those two guys followed him into the bathroom. Carmichael didn’t do anything about it. “I took it then got up and walked away.” Freshman beatdown is a real thing that happens and some kids are too afraid to admit it when it does. So the next time you walk by a freshman getting beat up think about how it simply could be happening cause they’re a “freshy”, or how that could have been you during your freshman year and do something to stop it!

Rumor 2: Will Haynes retire after this year?

Rumor 3: Want to meet your “meat”?

Truth: With each year comes the same claim that it is Principal Gene Haynes’ last year as our principal. Most everyone knows it is not true, except for the few naive students. “I think students just want something to talk about. I enjoy what I do, the day I don’t enjoy it is the day I’ll leave. I’m going to be 66 and I’m in no way ready to retire,” he said.

Truth: The lunch bell rings, students rush out of their classrooms pouring into the Viking Center and Cafeteria to get what they think is a nice warm lunch. You get into line and see a meat patty, but can’t quite put your finger on what it actually is. Well the mystery meat is no longer a mystery, the main ingredients of your hamburger patties are: ground beef, water, vegetable protein, unsweetened applesauce, salt, sodium phosphate, caramel color.
