It’s Go Time!

“Go-Kit” Diagnosis

“Go-Kits” part of larger safety program

1. Fluorescent Vest: Allows students

to better see instructor in the midst of great confusion. To be used during emergency evacuations.

T. Broderick 10’ As we plunge into the future, school safety is becoming an increasingly important issue. The ability to protect America’s young scholars is getting more attention due to the increase in school attacks throughout the past decade. After seeing the devastating affects of the Columbine shootings in early 1999 and other similar attacks across the United States, schools have been in search of more prominent safety programs that will better protect their students. Although a private school, Regis Jesuit has also been in pursuit of a better security policy. “Go-Kits”, which are now located in all the classrooms, were designed as a steppingstone to a larger and more in-depth safety program. Within the past year Regis Jesuit has taken its first big step toward change in student and school safety. A committee solely in

charge of implementing student safety has been meeting and discussing ideas for close to ten months now. The committee has big ideas for the fu-

evacuation procedures, video cameras throughout the school, a more

a faster pace. The evacuation procedure is also being considered and a new, safer location is soon to be in place. Instead of evacuating to the stadium, the Chinese Mann theaters across the

street look to be a better place. Mr. Rick Sullivan has played a major role in the development of Regis Jesuit’s safety procedures and continues to have a large impact in what is to come of Regis Jesuit’s more intense safety program. When asked about the intention of “Go-Kits”, Mr. Sullivan stated, “Honestly the kits are just the first step of what is to be implemented at Regis in the near future. The Go-Kits really are a good idea and should have been in place a long time ago, but we must recognize that they are intentionally designed for emergencies. On a daily basis, they are not going to have a large role on student safety.” RJ has big ideas for what must happen as we enter into a new age. Student safety can never be overlooked. It must be taken very seriously and implemented at the highest level.

2. Tape: Allows teachers to write on windows in case of emergency.

3. Megaphone: Allows teachers to better communicate to students.

4. CPR Shield: Allows instructor to

perform CPR. The CPR shield is narrow and allows air to hit the right passageway.

5. Sharpie: Allows Teacher to write on the tape or window during an emergency.

6. Safety-Kit: From band-aids and

wrist wraps, to Advil and other medicines, this kit allows teachers to help student injuries in time of crisis.

7. Wind-Resistant Blanket: During

an evacuation students not prepared for the proper elements can use the blanket to stay warm.

“Go-Kits” were created as a sort of stepping-stone for what is going to take place in the next few years.

Joey Springer leads victory over faculty the shoes he was bound to, and that superstar was Joey Springer. Playing like Bud Thomas out there, Springer hit a quick three to start the half, and that led to him hitting three more ‘tre’ balls that half. When Springer was asked about how he turned it up in the second half he replied, “I realized we were about to let a lot of fans down if we lost, so I started to be more aggressive” Oh yes you did Joey Springer, and with 22 points, you earned the seniors the win, and gave Regis Jesuit students something to cheer about.

The senior class was able to repeat this year in the SeniorFaculty Mission Week Game, but it did not happen easily. The first half of the game was all about the faculty, which led to a Faculty nine point lead at the break. Bud Thomas, Damian Mencini, Joey Ptasinski, and Ryan Benenati seemed to do zero coaching in the first half, besides telling subs when to go in and out, which made fans believe it was up to the players to win it. The Faculty was led by a sub-100% Mr. Katz, who pulled a Darragh O’Neil by not informing anyone if he was playing or not until game time, because of a broken back from first semester.

An explosion rocks the school. Fluorescent lights flicker and go out. Computer screens turn off. The bomb squad and fire department roll in. Students are evacuated. Is it a solar flare? Could there be a gas leak? No, it’s just the Chemistry Club doing another lab. While every day may not be this exciting for the Chemistry Club, the chemistry program at Regis Jesuit has endured some excitement. For example, earlier this year an unfortunate chemistry class set off the fire alarm after burning magnesium. Just recently, the Weekly Raider covered the story of Dr. Herman’s room inexplicably filling with smoke. The American Chemical Society, otherwise known as ACS, represents professionals in all fields of chemistry and sponsors schoolrun chemistry clubs across the United States to communicate the value of

chemistry to students. Mr. Dvorak and Mr. Cook moderate the club for Regis Jesuit, meeting a couple times per month and performing a lab every time with over thirty students attending. Although the Chemistry Club presents unique opportunities for anyone interested in the science, some believe that not enough people show up for labs and that a schedule would be helpful. The Chemistry Club doesn’t blow up the school every time they meet, but their more modest pursuits have included making ice cream, creating slime, and plating copper pennies with brass. In the future, they hope to enter chemistry competitions, do explosive reactions, and learn more about the applications of chemistry. According to sophomore Nick Willenbrock, “Chemistry applies to all aspects of science.” The Chemistry Club has around 35 active members and continues to do cool stuff every month.

Tryouts A Sham? Coaches unfair

Tryouts for this Senior Team were another story, one filled with conspiracies and rumors. Tryouts were held the Wednesday of Mission Week, and the coaches didn’t even show up until half way through. When asked if tryouts were fair Tim Broderick shouted, “Not at all! I am a balla myself and I was cut! These ‘coaches’ picked their favorites!” Others agreed that this was the case when they found out Evan Lloyd got cut, who is a superb basketball player that astonishes all with his skills. When Damian Menicni was asked if tryouts were picked by favorites, he responded, “No comment! Quit asking me that!” Although the seniors won, we will never know what the team could have been if the tryouts were fair. (All obscenities by Tim Broderick were edited)

The Jamaica Service trip began with a 2:30 am wake-up call for a 5:50 connecting flight to Dallas. Dallas then kept Sophomore Cooper Cohen and Mr. Kosena for an extra twenty-four hours due to an overbooked flight. When we landed in Montego Bay, the heat and humidity slapped us in the face. While landing, we saw the cruise ships and glorious resorts that lined the shore. It was hard for me to remind myself

that we would not be immersing ourselves in the glitz of the tourism-oriented north shore. An hour long bus ride through the green hills on the east side of the island brought us to Petersfield, the community that we would be serving for the next week. Jamaica, a former colony of both Great Britain and Spain, displays aspects from many cultures. Our meals consisted of rice and peas, chicken, fruit,

down. Mr. Young is one of many outstanding members of the Regis Jesuit Mock Trial Team, who sent two teams to the state competition in Colorado Springs this year. Both teams did incredibly well with the A Team placing 9th in State and the B Team placing 5th in State. The state of Colorado has 116 teams competing in Regionals

and 22 teams moved onto States. The RJ A Team placed 1st in the Arapahoe Regional and the B team placed 4th. During the State Competition both teams faced the former state champions, Lewis Palmer, and both teams did an amazing job. Two attorneys from Regis Jesuit, Emily Wheeler and Luke Young, received outstanding at-

torney awards at the State level. Outstanding attorney awards are given to attorneys who score the most points during the competition. These awards are handed out to a very select group of people who display the qualities and abilities of a real lawyer. Both Wheeler and Young are Juniors, so the team for next year looks just as good, if not better, than last year’s team.

To Make a Rowdy

The Future of Regis Radio

Jacob Zaemes ‘10

Ryan Garbrecht ‘12

Who’s the next voice of RJ ?

Got what it takes?

Regis Radio is one of the most known clubs at Regis and Zach Kachmer of the Sophomore class says “I listen to the show every time I’m not at the game.” Many don’t know, however, that Thomas Harpole did not in fact start Regis Radio. But, he was the one who gave it the legs it needed to take off. He has taken it to new levels as the Regis Radio program just finished announcing back to back state titles for the basketball team. But as Thomas Harpole finishes his senior year and plans to go off to either Boston College or Syracuse, the future of Regis Radio is not yet certain. The future of Regis Radio has been in the hands of the Harpoles, and it is still going to be in their hands even after

Take eleven guys. Tell them that they can wear whatever they want, be it an entire Spider Man costume or tights that leave little to the imagination, so long as it’s outrageous. Release them on the crowd, via tank if need be, to shout, amuse, and generally rile up the crowd without stopping and by any means necessary. Most schools don’t see this as a winning formula, but the boys of Regis Jesuit wouldn’t trade anything for their Rowdies. With tryouts soon arriving, many Juniors are wondering what to expect. Having no doubt heard some rumors about the confidential nature of the tryouts, some potential Rowdies may be apprehensive about the process. But Ms, Reardon wants to put their minds at ease. “First and foremost,

it’s supposed to be fun. We try to make it fun so that you can have fun with it in turn.” What does it take to be a Rowdy? When Fouad Sekrieh was asked what helped him most in becoming a Rowdy, he laughed and said, “Chest hair. If you have chest hair, you can do anything.” Ms. Reardon may have explained this seemingly cryptic answer when she said, “You need to be excited and have school spirit, but most importantly you can’t be afraid to look like a goofball. We want guys who can laugh at themselves, and don’t mind if the crowd laughs along.” More important than anything else is a dedication to keeping the crowd happy, even when the scoreboard can’t. If you are a Junior and you like to cheer, care about your school, and think you

When asked how he has the experience to announce he said that he “occasionally turns down the volume on his madden game to announce.” Michael has announced a few JV and Sophomore games along with the Varsity game at Gateway. He plans to coannounce with Matt Alley and wants Michael Brown to keep statistics for him.

AP Tests

The ultimate test of knowledge

ing their GPA. However, there is an even bigger upside. AP classes are weighted, which means that an A is a ‘5’ for your GPA. Also, there is a standardized AP test offered for all AP classes. These tests are graded on a scale of ‘1’ to’5’. Most colleges will accept a ‘3’ or better on an AP test for college credit. For example, the University of Colorado will give a student 6 college credit hours for math

if they can attain a ‘3’ or higher on the AP Calculus test. Six credit hours can and will save you thousands of dollars, because 6 hours equates to one semester of a college class. This year at Regis Jesuit there are 224 guys attempting at least one AP test. There are 420 exams total being administered. That means that there are a good number of students taking more than one test. One student

is even taking seven AP tests this year. An unknowing student may think that taking several tests isn’t that bad. This student would be totally wrong. An AP test is a three hour test over an entire year’s worth of college level material. This is extremely difficult, but Regis Jesuit students continue to do well on these exams.

Some call him one of the greatest people to ever walk into Regis Jesuit, but most call him “Coach.” Mike Messina has worked at Regis Jesuit for almost ten years and is known and loved by students, faculty, and alumni. “Coach” as he is called, is a very interesting man and has a very special story about him that most people don’t know. Messina is the youngest of three and grew up right here in Colorado. He had trouble in high school and graduated with a 1.6 cumulative GPA. Messina then decided that it was time for him to grow up and entered into UNC with a strong will to learn. After fo-ur years of college he graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Education. Immediately upon graduation he received a job as an elementary PE teacher in Adams County. He went back to school at the University of

A select few, mostly from the senior class, enjoy tweeting about their every move. Senior Charlie Gliwa explains his avid Twitter lifestyle, “I enjoy tweeting whatever is on mind, and keeping in contact with old Regis grads via Twitter.” Gliwa created his Twitter account in 2009 in order to follow Chad Ochocinco, his role model in life. Ochocinco is known to tweet excessively throughout the day, updating his followers on the thoughts of a humble NFL star.

A new era of communication was born in 2006, as Twitter was introduced to the World Wide Web. Jack Dorsey, a graduate of NYU, created the internet sensation in 2006 which revolutionized mobile messaging throughout the world. Nearly every celebrity takes advantage of Twitter, building their popularity by gaining thousands of followers throughout the globe.

Who out there is considering the priesthood today? How many? And For what reasons? These are questions which have occupied a reserved space in the minds of many lay and religious for the better part of thirty years. Since Vatican II in 1963, the Catholic Church has experienced a rapid decline in the amount of people called to diocesan and religious life abroad; Even in the aftermath of the destructive sex scandals of recent years, people still yearn for new generations to respond to the call that once inspired Cardinals Francis George and Theodore McCarrick, Denver’s Archbishop Charles Chaput, and the Jesuits of Regis Jesuit alike.

Facebook is a social network that was created in September 2006. Facebook was founded by Mark Zuckerberg with fellow computer science students Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. At first it was just open to use by any Harvard University student, but after a while they opened it to students from all collages in the Boston area. Then it was expanded for all University students, and finally to anyone over the age of 13 that had an e-mail address. Facebook now has over 400 million users worldwide.

Denver Auto Show Revs Interest an insider’s look at the world of auto shows Dominic Fante ‘11

Among car buyers, there are many preferences. Some like sports cars and muscle cars, while some want fuel-sipping Japanese compacts, while others prefer exotics and/ or luxury cars. (And of course, some have the truly American preference of SUVs and trucks.) So where could a buyer or an enthusiast go where they could stare and admire new cars to their hearts content? An auto show, of course. From April 7th to the 11th, Denver hosted their 108th annual automotive show at the Denver Convention Center. The show consisted of the brand new 2011 models of each domestic or foreign car company. Mitsubishi and Lamborghini were not at the show. According to automotive industry writer Bud Wells, the show emphasized “green” cars. “We’ve all gathered here today to look over the newest technology in hybrids and clean diesels... but

there’s so much more.” The line to get in even stretched all the way to the light rail station. The event primarily allowed participants the chance to learn about the innovations, specifications, and features of the different cars. Some dealers even allowed customers over 21 to test drive select models in a parking lot cone course across from the center. As with previous years, the event contained a market, an accessories area, and an area for classic cars and hot rods. One extremely attentioncatching feature was a driving simulator video game for a Ford racing pickup truck. After signing the insurance waiver involved, people could do things in the game like slide sideways into the wall of a cliff at 60 mph, without

sustaining injury. The show featured cars like the 2011 Buick LaCrosse, the 2011 Volvo XC60, the 2011 Ford Fusion (Motor Trend’s Car of the Year) and the 2011 Dodge Ram 3500, (Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year). But the cars that seemed to be the stars of the show were the 2010 Ferrari 612 Scagliettti, the new 2011 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, the Chevrolet Volt, (due in December 2010) and the Corvette Stingray Concept car (pictured left). Most of the cars featured were for sale at the show on a first come first serve basis. Some unsalable show cars collected much admiration, such as the “Bumblebee” Camaro SS from Transformers, an original 1981 DeLorean with trademark gull

Above the concept Corvette Below The new Mustang, The old Mustang, Chevy HHR

wing doors, and a fully loaded blue and white striped 1968 Shelby Mustang GT500. (All of these cars were an absolute pleasure to look at.) While the show didn’t contain as many gorgeous show cars as, say, the Portland Auto Show, it nonetheless provided the treat of getting to examine any car you wanted, without having any sort of dealer pressure. And what else could a car buyer want?

Rockies Outlook Could they win it all? Alec Jenkins ‘11

Tulo is going to have a great season and play better defensively than ever before. Michael Clark ‘11

After losing to the Phillies in the post season, the Colorado Rockies hope to make up their loss. The Rockies have a lot of talent this season that many think they can capitalize on. Junior Chris Lesnansky said “We have a lot of talent in the line up so a successful year and possibly a trip to the World Series to come.” The Rockies have a very good bull pen (one of the best last season). Once Jeff Francis and Houston Street recover from their shoulder injuries they will have one of the deepest pitching rotations in the league. Already this year, Ubaldo Jimeniz has completed a historic feat by pitching this first no-hitter in Rockies history. The Rockies also have a superb bating line up with Dexter Fowler, Carlos Gonzalez, Troy Tulowitzki, and Todd Helton the Rockies starting lineup is almost unstoppable. Last year the Rockies had five players that had a bating percentage over .250. The Rockies also have one of the deepest rosters in the league. Guys like Jason Giambi, Rya Spilbourghs, and Melvin

Save our Youth

corrupt role models in America M. Petko ‘10

Growing up as a boy in America, there are certain characteristics to your life that are essential to your wellbeing, one of

those being a sports fanatic endowed to famed individuals who emphatically dispossess their opponents on their way to glory. You cherish these people, almost to the level of a god on Earth, until, of course, they screw up. Being in the spotlight that shines so brightly upon their athletic and private

lives, it is easy to fall into the trend of fame meeting misfortune. One incredible athlete who had been shredded by the grip of PETA activists, Michael Vick, is a man who had been on top, only to be slamdunked to the bottom……the slammer. His athletic ability gained him the fortune to generate the finances of a scheme that put him under. “He is definitely a hero of mine. Growing up in a gang-infested environment and makin’ it in the big leagues…that’s a huge deal.” Lance Jungers ’10 implied about his faith towards his role model. His resurrection has been passionate but it’s uncertain whether he will once again rise or fall. Another proclaimed athlete

accusation that has taken over celebrity bashing, cut-throat internet hot spots, is Tiger Woods. Woods, a once prolific man has recently fallen. Despite Mr. Woods’ wrongdoings, his golf game is most profound in comparison to other competitors. Golf is a game described as 10% physical and 90% mental. “Last year the guy won the FedEx with all that guilt and anxiety hovering in his mind?!?! I can’t wait to hear Tiger’s roar this season.” Justin Stoeckle ‘10 invoked. America is a nation of triumph and empowerment, which is driven by the authenticity of its youth. The youngsters look up to individuals on many different playing surfaces and pave their lives according to the paths their heroes lead. Aside from the loyal disposition

Mora are players that will make big plays this season to come. The leadership on the team is also another benifit that other teams lack. Veteran Todd Helton always makes great plays in close games. He made his 15,500 put-out at first base against Milwaukie on April 6, 2010. Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has just started to take on the leadership role. This is important for the team to have another good athlete that they can rely on. Tulo is the youngest player in MLB history to make an unassisted triple play and hit a full cycle. Hopefully , Tulo will produce more great plays this season. The Rockies will have many important games this year. Juniors Dalton Ponterlli and Brad McWilliams agree that the Dodgers and the Giants are key games that the Rockies will need to win. The Rockies are sure to have a great season and will be contenders for the World Series. Left Todd Helton getting ready to crush it taken by Wikapedia Commons

of a great man and the gambling lifestyle of another, the youth seems to always support the comeback character in any story of resurgence. So for America’s sake, men like Michael Vick and Tiger Woods need to put their lives in order so that young America can keep looking to them as examples of great athletes,

[ Sports ] Avs Turnaround

From last place to playoffs Colin Smith ‘11

The Avalanche were remarkably bad last year. It was the worst season in Avalanche history as they went 32 - 45 -5 only producing 69 points. The Avs’ struggled to fill the seats and fans were getting restless. During the offseason the Avs’ drafted two of the top rookies in Matt Duchene and Ryan O’ Riely. “I love Matt Duchene, he is just the best” says RJ student and Avalanche critic Chris Lesnansky. The rookies bring young legs to a team that was too old to compete with the rest of the league. The Avalanche also made a huge acquisition in goalie Craig Anderson. He has brought swager to a team that was in desperate need of it. “Craig Anderson is just an outstanding goalie ya know, what a trooper that goalkeeper is” says hockey phenom Ben Carey. (Carey is probably going to be drafted

Will the Nuggets Prevail?

Quest to be the best difficult without leader Mitch Robinson ‘11

For the Past couple of years as Denver Nugget fans here at Regis Jesuit have watched the Nuggets slowly climb the ladder in the playoffs. At the beginning of last season when the Nuggets solidified the trade between the Detroit Pistons for Chauncey Billups it brought new energy to the Nuggets fan base. After losing to the Lakers in the Western Conference finals last year, the Nuggets popularity has grown significantly. As the Lakers still dominate the west, sports analysts agree that the Nuggets will be a team that will be able to compete with the Lakers if they learn to play as a team. As the 20092010, season comes to a conclusion the Nuggets failed to uphold the third seed in the west, losing home court advantage in the playoffs. “The Nuggets struggle without Kenyon Martin” says Tanner Ernst “He is the heart of our defense and a solid contributor on offense. ” Without Kenyon Martin and head Coach George Karl the Nuggets have struggled

Q & A Chad Merten Q: How do you think the Nuggets will do in the Playoffs? A: I Really don’t know they have been playing terrible of late. Q: Who will be the hardest opponent in the playoffs? A: themselves. Q: who is your favorite team in the NBA? A: Nuggy Bears. Q: Who is your favorite player on the nuggets? A: Chauncey Billups. Q: Who do you think will win it all? A: Im not quite sure I’m thinking the Lakers. Q: Who is the biggest Thug on the Nuggets? A: Kenyon Martin because he has lips on his neck. to finish the season strong. Tanner Ernst believes “George Karl is the powerful voice of the Denver Nuggets and sets the tempo that his players play at… I will be doubtful of the Nuggets success in the playoffs without Coach Karl on the bench.” Looks like Ernst predictions are coming true. The lack of defense and lack of assists (the Nuggets really don’t pass the ball) have left them down 3-1 in the best of 7 series against the injury - plagued but hard- working Utah Jazz. Hopefully by the time this paper is

printed, the Nuggets will have fought back to have a chance in the series, but without Coach Karl the Nuggets seem illprepared and completely lost.

What exactly is Ultimate Frisbee? Ultimate is a transition, non-contact, sport in which 7 players from each team are on the field at once. Once you catch the Frisbee you cannot move. The main position is the handler. Typically this is the most skilled player on the team. There are sometimes multiple handlers for each team. The games are played based on a point system, where the first team to score 13 points wins. There may be up to as many subs as a team may wish and each player is expected to call his own foul. The game is quite simple once

New Orleans

Who could have foretold the end of this amazing year of College Basketball? The talent in this year’s class is hands down second to best; you had the player of the year a six foot seven inch point guard from Ohio State in Evan Turner. The freshman class was hands down the best that there’s been in the last five years. This year’s freshman class included future first round NBA draft picks such as Kentucky’s John Wall and Demarcus cousins, Kansas Xavier Henry, Georgia Tech’s Derrick Favors, and among others Cincinnati’s Lance Stephenson.

This year’s incredible field of players led to one of the best tournaments that we could have asked for. In last years NCAA tournament there were only two overtimes in the entire tournament. In this years first round alone there was double that. There were seven overtimes in the entire tournament. The battle between David and Goliath was forged on the first day when Murray state went on to upset Vandy when Danero Thomas hit an 18 foot jump shot at the buzzer and later that same day when Ohio knocked off favorite Georgetown. As the story goes David prevailed against the mighty Goliaths of this tournament there were a whopping number of 20 upsets in a year when the higher seeds were supposed to dominate. This year in the NCAA March Madness tournament all twelve of the ESPN college basketball senior analysts picked Kansas

you get the hang of it. If you still have trouble picturing it, think of a mixture of between soccer and football. The Regis team is looking strong this year. Head coach Tom Kaiser has been making his team work hard since October. “I have been getting the team running sprints and pumping iron since the fall, it will be the reason why we win it all.” The team has shots for winning state for multiple reasons. One reason is the dedicated players. Each player has yet to miss one practice or work out session all year. Coach Kaiser allows zero tolerance for unexcused absences. Another reason is highly motivated captain Taylor Steel. Taylor is being recruited by all the top ultimate colleges in the nation. He is a very skilled handler that is not afraid to the disc through the needle. The third and final reason is the other captain is Spencer Sullivan, a.k.a. Sully. Sully has the ability to run and jump faster and higher than most other ultimate players. “Sullivan is under other team’s radar, so he will be a secret weapon throughout the year,” Coach Kaiser said. If the team can compose all of these aspects this year they will surely win the title and go down forever in history.

14 The Raider Review April 31, 2010 Students and Shoes

Into The Wild

Students from each class share their love for shoes

Drew Dyer ‘11

Ever since the dawn of time students have been attracted to shoes. It does not matter whether what grade you are; freshman, sophomore, juniors, and seniors students in every class have found a burning passion for the art of shoes. The love for shoes varies: Vans, Jordan’s, Nikes, Adidas, New Balance, Timerland... the list goes on and

on. You even might find a fan of the new Five Finger Shoes. I know I am. The point is no matter where you go, or where you look you can find people who have a burning passion in their soul for shoes. Here at Regis Jesuit it was not a hard task to find shoe lovers. We at Raider Review have found four individuals from different grades who show a true love and desire for shoes. They each gave us some very inspiring quotes.

Into The wild, is a novel by Jon Krakauer about a young man by the name of Chris Mccandless. It entails adventures of Mccandless throughout his odyssey to find himself, and kill the false being within. Chris Mccandless had a great passion for the outdoors and the thought of not being owned by the corporeal. Mccandless believed that having a career was a 21st century invention and he didn’t want any part of that. He wanted to live a simple life off the land and truly understand the idea of surrendering himself to some higher power. That power would be nature for him. He fled into the Alaskan bush with enough supplies to last a couple of weeks, penniless,

and at times struggling to live. Chris believed that new experiences were at the core of a man’s spirit and in order to truly live you have to put yourself out there. The story has been inspiring for so many and if you have not heard of it yet you should definitely check it out. Many people that I have talked to experienced mixed reactions while reading the book. Many thought of him as a mentally unstable human being who was just upset because he had a rough relationship with his parents. While others like myself admire the heck out of Chris and the things that he accomplished in his life. A man willing to break conventional society and step “outside the box” to look at the world in a

Many people have changed the way they live their lives after hearing Chris’s story. He has had a positive influence

on a lot of people and for that God bless him. Christopher Mccandless (February 12, 1968 – mid-August, 1992).

Spotlight: Mitch Robinson

A closer look at this perfectly tuned athlete Chad Merten ‘10

Mitch Robinson was born on October 9, 1992 in Denver, Colorado to Patty and Gordon Robinson. He attended Ave Maria for his Elementary and Middle School years. He applied to Regis Jesuit his eighth grade year and was very happy when he found out he had been accepted. His freshman year Mitch Robinson went out for freshman football in the fall and earned a spot as the punter on the team. He had fun playing football and

meeting new friends but he now turned his full attention towards his favorite sport, baseball. In the spring of his freshman year Mitch tried out for the baseball team, he bypassed the freshman and sophomore teams to play for the Junior Varsity. He played short stop under coach Alkorn and kept developing his skills all spring and summer. Mitch Robinson’s sophomore year he made the varsity team’s suitup roster, and got to dress for varsity games while still starting on JV. He even got some

varsity time which fueled his desire to work hard in the offseason and come out ready to earn a starting Varsity spot the following year. This year (Robinson’s junior year) he is the starting third baseman and has indeed proved himself worthy of a starting spot. When I asked Robinson about this seasons opponents and which games were the biggest for him personally he replied, “The biggest game for me personally this year is for sure Ponderosa. I know a lot of the kids on that team and that will make beating them

even sweeter. Mitch and the rest of the baseball team are looking toward an impressive season and look forward to being one of the top contenders in the state this year.

The Daily Welchert

An in-depth look into the life of the Editor-In-Chief

Matt In A Box

On a daily basis, you may see him walking down the hall clad in a shirt from J. Crew and a pair of cords, more than likely brown. In fact, I can usually spot him because we’re dressed in almost the identical outfit. These facts are given, however, who is the man behind this visual? What goes into the life and legacy that is Matt Welchert? On June 23, 1991, Matt Welchert entered this world at Rose Medical Center in Denver. Being proud of his roots, Matt boasts, “I’m a Denverite!” Since his beginnings, Matt has

taken interest in several different topics, most prominently in the arenas of sports, politics, and journalism. As a child, Matt participated in hockey, lacrosse, baseball, and basketball, with his favorite being hockey. “I’ve been playing since I was four,” he fondly recalls. Playing for such teams as the Front Range Panthers, DU Jr. Pioneers, and a brief stint with the Littleton Hawks, Matt grew to love the sport while traveling throughout the state of Colorado. Not included in the list was Matt’s month long participation in

youth soccer. “When I was four, I remember picking a kid up and throwing him down in the middle of a soccer game,” Welchert recalls, “it

According to Google, Kansas was found in March of the year 2009 by Bill Bunten and then Mr. Bunten invivted Google to ude this land to continue their good work. Since no one besides Mayor Bunten remebers the state’s actual history, everyone completly belives Google’s story of the state’s founding. Kansas is now the most popular Google search topic besides a dollar sign + Kesha.

from Illinois, Barack Obama. “I grew a lot during this time. Being able to venture the nation’s capitol by myself on a daily basis is something that I know will carry with me for the rest of my life.” More visibly in the Regis Jesuit community, Matt Welchert serves as the copy editor in chief of the Raider Review. In reflection of his journalistic career, Welchert commented, “I’ve always had a knack for writing, so I jumped at the opportunity to parlay that into an academic activity.” As the school year comes to

Tickling

The presence of Matt Welchert is easily felt. . Just as you’re about to escape, he grabs onto you and tickles you mercilessly. Matt is considered quite the “softy” around the newsroom.

Did you know that Matt is choosing between American University, Trinity College, and College of the Holy Cross for his college education?

Topeka, Kansas- On March 2nd, 2010 Topeka’s Mayor Bill Bunten announced that starting April 1st his city formerly called Topeka would change its name to Google. The 79 year-old said the name change was due to a horrific problem Kansas has; it doesn’t exist on Google. The baffled Mayor discovered this when he asked his secretary to search for information on Kansas on the internet, because he had forgotten what the most interesting thing about Kansas was. His secretary came back and told him that Google came back with “did you mean boring?” That drove Bunten to call Google, He demanded to talk to CEO Eric Schmidt under the basis that Kansas wasn’t on Google. The Google rep responded, “What isn’t on Google?” Bunten replied, “Kansas, the state, you know…uhhh…with the flatlands and grain”. The Google rep then said, “Sir, stop trying to waste my time, I have no idea what you’re talking about.” And then the rep hung up on Mayor Bunten. Bill Bunten spent a long considering what his home state had become, then

he came up with an idea; Topeka, Kansas must become as popular as Google. “The only way to do that is to become part of Google” said Mayor Bunten. Therefore on March 2nd, 2010 Mayor Bill Bunten changed the name of the city and contacted Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt. Google had no idea it shared a name with a city, Bunten then threatened to sue unless the state of Kansas was fully documented on Google. Google then bought the enterity of the state of Kansas to avoid the lawsuit. Now

“Mudslinging” The President

The Future of History

Fouad Sekrieh ‘10

Matt Krause ‘10

Who is Fouad Sekrieh, really?

Above: a rare picture of Fouad. Here he is in Mexico, most likely finishing up an illegal drug deal with one of the Mariachi singers.

Above is a picture that barely made it. The photographer did not. Here Fouad is pictured at the March for Life, moments before attacking the photographer.

After an interview with Mr. Wolf about Fouad’s behavior in class, I was not surprised by the things I heard. “Yeah. Unfortunately I had him his freshman year. All he did was sleep and play with Graham Glass’ hair. He was a constant disruption.” There are also rumors that Fouad is one of the largest illegal substance dealers in the country. The real question is: How did such a person become president of our school? And I have found the answer from Mr. Wolf, who was hesitant to respond, but after several weeks he finally built the strength to respond. “Stuffing

guy. Never assume. After interviewing a “friend” of his, one of his past teachers, and researching his Facebook; I have concluded that Fouad Sekrieh is not who we thought he was. Matthew Krause from the Senior class says that he became president because “It was a sympathy vote. He doesn’t have very many friends and plus the whole Obama theme really took the cake.” Fouad barely goes to class, but when he does it is mayhem. Teachers prefer that he doesn’t show up. When

Fouad does actually go to class, students and teachers scream, run, and cry- in that order. And the week before grades come home, he bribes teachers and faculty with cakes. His father owns Vollmer’s Bakery, and ever since Fouad was of age he used cakes to get what he wanted. His father can barely keep up with all of the bribes and unjust use of his delicious cakes. If Fouad takes advantage of his own father, nothing will stop him from taking advantage of our school, and possibly the world.

If one thing is known about the future, it is that it is a dark and dangerous place, and all beings must adapt to their new environments. History is no exception. Sure, it has been written down since the dawn of man. From random events in the lives of our dinosaur-hunting ancestors written on the walls of caves to the forefathers of our country writing the Declaration of Independence, history has been around forever. Now in this world of change, especially during the Technological Revolution, how is history changing around us? To answer the question, we must take into account everything that now uses history to function. TV, primarily the History Channel, uses history to function. The internet undoubtedly uses history to function. Google and YouTube, two of the most-used

This type of history can be referred to as “Instant History,” or Insta-History. Andrew Tilley, Executive Vice-Principal to the bilingual behemoth Foaud Sekrieh, was asked, “How do you feel history is changing?” His response, “Not at all.”

Also, one must wear corduroy pants while they are sleeping, and must partake in physically laborious activities, such as bear hunting and playing dress up. Andrew Tilley is one of the most respected students at Regis Jesuit High School, and deserves the respect and admiration of the students who walk the halls. So... Yikes...
