First off, we would like to thank each and every one of our readers for continuing to read our issues of The Scroll. Although most schools are fortunate enough to have a newspaper, not every school is blessed enough to have a readership base as strong as ours. You—our lovely, brilliant and capable reader—are the reason why we do what we do, and for that, we thank you. We would also like to offer congratulations to all of this year’s graduates, along with all the freshmen, sophomores and juniors. We bravely soldiered through one of the severest budget cut-hit years in recent Oregon history. Succeeding, despite huge class sizes and many lost opportunities, is no small feat by any measure. On a personal note, this will be the last issue that we shall be publishing as an Amy-Amy Co-editor in Chief team. This year—crammed with inhumanly doses of struggles and successes—has been a great, rollicking ride. There is not much out there in our vast, turmoilous world that was more beautiful and magical than the moments that we, as a staff, have shared, for animated editorial board meetings to late night paste-up days. They probably don’t hear it enough, but the staff of 2013 was truly fantastic. In total, this year has been a delicious, hugely memorable adventure, and although we regret departing so quickly, we look forward to relinquishing the reins to next year’s leaders and other staff members, who we hold in high regard, as you should too. Anyway, as most of the returning students have already realized, the paper you are holding now is this year’s edition of the traditional senior issue. As with all previous senior editions, after selecting a double truck (centerfold) theme, we carried the theme throughout the entire edition. This year, the editorial board selected “That ‘70s show” to be our overhead inspiration, and as a result, we have created a set of double truck articles on the featured seniors. Our graphic design team has created a number of “That ‘70s show”-inspired design elements, which are sprinkled across the entire issue. In addition to our double truck featurettes, we also are confident that you will enjoy reading are some of other examples of top-notch reporting in this paper, including “Sunset Apollos show off various unique talents” (page 6), “Portland heats up with summer concerts” (page 14) and this issue’s editorial, “Oregon needs a sales tax” (page 13). As always, happy reading!

Beaverton voters pass levy in support of schools Alex Groshans Entertainment Editor Beaverton voters passed an option levy on May 21 that will bring additional funding to the Beaverton School District. Fifty-seven percent of voters supported the measure, which will bring approximately $15 million in additional funds to the district after schools have struggled under the weight of severe budget cuts. The levy will add an additional 0.00125 percent to property tax for Beaverton residents. The
option had been gaining momentum and was addressed by the Beaverton City Council. “The Beaverton City Council unanimously passed a resolution [on May 7] supporting the Beaverton School District’s local option levy in the May 21 election,” says The Oregonian. In the weeks leading up to the vote, Beaverton School District launched an extensive mail campaign to rally support for the option levy. Flyers featuring commentary from those involved with
the district circulated in Beaverton and neighboring communities. While the option levy may help stem the damage caused by budget cuts, many still doubt the long-term benefits of the measure. “A piecemeal approach could take some pressure off in the short term,” says Sue Levin, Executive Director of the national advocacy group Stand for Children. “Our members recognize comprehensive tax reform has Principal John Huelskamp displayed this sign in favor of the option a better chance of solving levy. The option would slightly increase property tax to funnel additional funds to the Beaverton School District. our problems long-term.” Photo by Haily Hargrave

South Korea e-sports see surge in popularity, controversy Alex Groshans Entertainment Editor
Electronic sports (e-sports) have seen an explosion of popularity in South Korea during recent years. It is managed by the Korean e-Sports Association (KeSPA), which administers major gaming tournaments for popular games such as “StarCraft II” and “Counter Strike.” “[It’s] absolutely amazing to be able to gather together with thousands of our fans to watch these incredible players throw down in this huge tournament,” said Blizzard (distributor of “StarCraft II”) developer Dustin Browder. There have been issues, as the financial pieces of a third-party hosting large-scale tournaments are complex for game developers. “KeSPA, who currently handles StarCraft competitions in the region, has been at odds with Blizzard over what boils down to money,” said GamePolitics. KeSPA has also encountered difficulties with gambling. A dozen players were indicted of fixing games for Korean gambling organizations, and received lifetime bans from participating in official e-sports competitions. This has had a major impact on the fan following of KeSPA. “I feel so miserable and disappointed. It’s
so shocking to realize fake matches and fraud were part of the history of StarCraft leagues,” said e-sports fan Park Won-Ki. Regardless of the controversy, Korean fan support is well developed enough to keep the pastime strong going forward. “E-sports did not die, and will not die,”
said popular blog “Ask a Korean.” “As long as there are displays of high-level skills, and the giant crowd is willing to watch those displays, e-sports will live on.” Undoubtedly, Korean e-sports will continue to grow in popularity, but the specific games being played will change with time.

Been there, done that: teachers recall life after high school Jenny Fessler Copy Editor
“Pursue what you love. You never know how life will turn out,” says French teacher Karen Schaer-Arib. After high school, she went on to Oregon State University and followed her passion for the French language at the University of Poitiers in France.
“Give yourself time to explore, and feel free to try new things,” says English teacher Terry Nolan. She left Archbishop Ryan High School, where she played the lead role in two plays, to pursue a double major degree in Finance and Accounting from Rutgers University.
“The beauty of college is that it’s a fresh start; you can make yourself into whoever you want to be,” says English teacher Mary Chamberlain, who graduated from Parkrose High School. “Unless you already like who you are, then just be you.”
Bryan Lurie, a history and IB psychology teacher, made the journey from Lynbrook High School to the University of Vermont after his senior year. “After high school, travel and get to understand the real world,” says Lurie. “Get to know your professors, that’s what you’re paying them for.”

Senior Matthew Stevens is a talented chess player. He’s won state competitions including the Oregon Scholastic Championship Individual section of the Tournament. By that point he’d only been playing for a year and a half. Its complexity still continues to intrigue me,” says Stevens.
Junior Lisbeth Mikoleit began contortionism at age eleven, and has been committed to the art for six years. She spends all her free time at the gym practicing her sport, and teaches and gives lessons to other kids who desire to learn. “I got to meet the whole cast of Cirque du Soleil once,” says Mikoleit. “It was incredible.”
Senior Jack Finnel began competing with his yo-yo his freshman year. He and his younger brother participate and compete for fun. “You can be very creative with the tricks, there are so many different possibilities,” says Finnel. “I started learning off of YouTube to make up and learn my own tricks.”
Senior Ryan Tomlinson began fencing at age twelve and has fenced for about six and a half years since. Tomlinson placed third at the 2012 Junior Olympics. “The thing I love about fencing is that it’s just as much as a mental challenge as it is a physical challenge,” says Tomlinson.

Amelia Turnquist Staff Writer Taylor Rhodes easily captures the hearts of young ladies, strutting down the hallways and tossing his head as if he possessed the long, luscious locks of Michael Kelso. Although Kelso. “He’s a pretty good looking guy and you got to respect a good looking guy. He also knows how to talk to the ladies,” said Rhodes of the teen idol. In his giant, tropical fruit suit at Sunset sporting events, Rhodes shows his Kelso side through this zany idea. What relation a banana has to our sun god mascot, nobody knows, but Rhodes is so enthusiastic that nobody seems to care. The legend of the banana started when Rhodes went shopping with his mom for a hal loween costume. She told him that he would never wear the costume more than once, but Rhodes followed his inner Kelso and took the challenge to prove her wrong. “I’m like ‘No Mom, you will see.’ So the banana all started with Halloween and now it’s just part of the spirit,” said Rhodes. Kelso and his crazy inventions.
Bryce Patel Copy Editor With his sarcastic sense of humor and strong suspicion of authority, Yusef Haswarey stands out as Sunset’s quintessential Steven Hyde. Haswarey shares Hyde’s sardonic sense of humor and ability to come up with witty remarks in response to any situation. “Like Hyde, my humor tends to be very sarcastic, and I often come across as cyni people’s logic and ideas.” Haswarey and Hyde’s similarities go beyond their humor. Though Haswarey doesn’t believe the government has a secret car that runs on water, he is no less dis trustful of the government than Hyde. “I’m pretty critical of the government in its current state,” said Haswarey. “There’s too much power in the hands of people who are only concerned with making money rather than doing the right thing.” While he may not have sideburns or an afro, Haswarey has far more in common with Hyde than meets the eye.
Sharada Menon Staff Writer Alli Moore is separated from Laura Prepon’s character, Donna Piniciotti from “That ‘70s show,” by more than four decades. However, Moore’s quick sense of humor and belief in feminism make Moore Sunset’s very own Donna. “I relate to Donna the most, because she seems the most down to earth,” said Moore. “I can’t speak in front of a lot of people, but I can dance in front of a large crowd no problem,” said Moore. Donna’s razor sharp intelligence matches that of Moore, who is taking all IB classes this year. In addition, Moore, like Donna, passionately believes in women’s rights, even though many people have negative associations with feminism. “I was a part of the Young Feminist Club before it dissolved this year,” said Moore. “I just believe in equality in general.”
Boy Scouts should accept homosexual youth Copy Editor
Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is extremely controversial due to its exclusion of homosexuals. Supporters of BSA’s policy claim these requirements are simply guidelines for morality and that as a private institution, BSA is allowed to set membership standards. Opponents, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, claim it violates freedom of religion, especially since BSA receives considerable government support. Are BSA’s discriminatory membership requirements acceptable? No, they teach bigotry

and violate religious and personal freedoms, which is especially unacceptable since the organization receives government support. BSA’s membership policy fails to respect religious freedoms, a value many Americans view as essential. The organization has defended its exclusionary membership policy by saying that “homosexual conduct is inconsistent with the obligations in the Scout Oath and Scout Law to be morally straight and clean in thought, word, and deed,” (bsalegal.org) but the morals the policy is based on are blatantly a product of western religion. Despite BSA’s claims that it respects everyone’s religious beliefs (bsalegal. org), it is obvious that the organization is much less open-minded than it claims to be. BSA’s membership policy shows a complete lack of respect for religious freedoms and thus it should be ended. Although BSA claims to “prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes,” (scouting.org) it does exactly the opposite with its blatant discrimination. It is completely illogical to argue that people should be discriminated against for their inherent traits. BSA is meant to build people’s characters, but instead it teaches them bigotry and intolerance through excluding gays. In order for the BSA to maintain any credibility for its supposed moral teachings, BSA should do away with its exclusionary policy.
Supporters of BSA’s discrimination claim it is within the organization’s rights to determine its membership policy since it is a private institution rather than a public one. However, this argument stops being valid when the private organization receives federal support. There have been several bills passed which support the BSA despite its discriminatory policies, such as the Support our Scouts Act which encourages federal support of the BSA (bsalegal.org). Additionally, every President of the United States since William Howard Taft has served as the Honorary President of the BSA. If an organization receives federal support, its policies are a pletely unacceptable for a federally supported organization to openly discriminate. Therefore, BSA’s policy of discrimination should be removed as long as the government has ties to the organization. BSA’s obvious discrimination against homosexuals is entirely unjust. Additionally, it is unacceptable for such a policy to be held by an organization that receives government funds. Overall, there is no reason for BSA to keep its current policy since it goes against the principles the organization claims to uphold. Concerned citizens should spread the word about its discrimination and encourage the government and other sponsors to stop supporting the organization.

Staff Writer Score: A+ “Arrested Development” follows the farcical exploits of a wealthy family grappling with the loss of their fortune as the family patriarch is arrested for numerous dubious dealings involving the family business (Bluth Company) and Saddam Hussein. Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman), the moral center of the family, is trying to keep them all together. The show was hilarious, lacked a laugh track and made the viewers think about their humor. Cancelled in 2003, the show is now getting a revival on May 26. Jason Bateman may play the main character, but Michael Bluth is not the only character in this series. “Arrested Development” is a show that relies upon the strength of its characters and their dynamics. George Michael Sr. (Jeffery Tambor) is the patriarch of the Bluth family currently spending time in prison for his crimes. Lucile (Jessica Walters) is the manipulative drunk matriarch who constantly belittles her children, especially Buster Bluth (Tony Hale) who suffers from social anxiety, panic attacks and many other psychological issues as a result of Lucile’s parenting. Gob (Will Arnett), an amateur stage magician whose schemes always fail, is Michael’s other brother. Michael’s son, George-Michael (Michael Cera) is a decent lad, but feels his father doesn’t

truly appreciate him and is resistant to go along with his father’s plans. George-Michael has a mutual crush on his cousin Maeby Funke (Alia Shakwat). Lindsey Funke (Portia de Rossi), Maeby’s mother and Michael’s sister, is a spoiled woman who always wants to be the center of attention. She has a troubled marriage with her husband Tobias Funke (David Cross), an analyst/therapist of ambiguous sexuality. “Arrested Development” was hilarious, deadpan and smart.

It’s hard to imagine concerts getting any hotter, but with the weather warming up and the talent rolling in, Portland is in for some summer-worthy gigs. From the top-of-the-chart regulars to the alternative indie rockers, the Rose City has a lineup that can’t be beat. By bringing an interesting quirk to pop songs, Lenka is best known for her single “The Show” that was featured in the recent movie “Moneyball.” Although she did crack the Top 40 list with the tune, Lenka will be playing at the Doug Fir Lounge, an intimate theater, on June 9 this summer. The show should be
of summer while not especially groundbreaking or profound. It might not be “Sweater Weather,” but The Neighbourhood is here anyway. This song marks their breakthrough in the music business and forecasts a promising future for the band who only released their in April of this year. Like Lenka, the Neighbourhood will be playing at a small venue, the Wonder Ballroom, on July 12. Not all indie bands, however, are performing in a closed environment. The Postal Service will deliver at the Rose Garden on July 17. The vocalist of Death Cab for Cutie, Ben Gibbard, has
carried The Postal Service to fame. Their most popular song, “Such Great Heights,” played in the background of several advertisements and became one of the show “Grey’s Anatomy.” Bigger names Bruno Mars and Ellie Goulding will also visit the Rose Garden shortly after The Postal Service on July 22. The two should make an interesting pair with Mars representing R&B pop and Goulding electronica pop. Both have had hits this past year, Goulding’s “Lights” reached number two on Billboard’s Hot 100 list and Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven” topped the list for
six consecutive weeks. Another dynamic duo hitting the Garden on August 30 is Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran. Swift’s not-so-country “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” may be frequently compared to screeching goats, but it did manage to top Billboard’s Hot 100 list just like Mars’ song. Telling a story about a drug-addicted prostitute, Sheeran’s bittersweet “The A Team” also managed to reach 16 on the Hot list. Whether packed into Garden or squeezed into the mosh pit at a smaller theater, Portland’s music lovers will soon feel the heat of the summer beat.

Although most airlines seem to limit the comfort of their fliers, Virgin Airlines provides new and fancy in-flight services for passengers to enjoy. “Virgin poses a strong argument for first-class— ahem, Upper Class Suite— travel, for which the carrier is quick to suggest it offers more spacious appointments than competing airlines.
