Live from New York, it’s Julia Warrick

Only a select few students throughout the state are granted the chance to participate in the NMEA All-State Music Ensemble. NMEA is the Nebraska Music Educators Association and each year hosts a select music ensemble performance at the Lied Center in Lincoln. Senior Julia Warrick was one of several HHS students who tried out for more than one All-State ensemble. “I’ve auditioned for band because I have before and [band director Erin] Beave would have thrown a fit if I didn’t,” Warrick said. “[Choir director Tim] Canady thought I should at least try out for choir just for the experience.” Sophomore, junior, and senior high school students across the state are invited to audition for any of the four divisions that perform at the concert. Students can audition for chorus, band, jazz band, or orchestra, and are allowed to audition for more than one. Warrick has made All-State band on the clarinet for the past two years. This time around, Warrick not only made All-State band for the third straight year, but also made All-State choir. The majority of students who audition only try out for one of the divisions, and most do not make the select group. Warrick denied the norm and made both ensembles she tried out for. However, a student can only be in one ensemble at the concert. Before her auditions, Warrick chose to participate at All-State in the band ensemble, if she made both. “I had to choose before I tried out so I picked band,” Warrick said. “I didn’t think I would make choir so I went with the safe option.” The All-State concert was on Friday, November 18.

With a shovel in hand, junior John Funkey helps with the new science wing groundbreaking. Funkey sang the national anthem with Madrigals and played the school fight song with the pep band during the ceremoney. After the initial groundbreaking performed by the school board, Funkey and other students were allowed to try their hands at shoveling some dirt. To see more photos of the school groundbreaking ceremony see pg 8.

who participated went to Lincoln on the previous Wednesday to begin rehearsing for the concert and stayed in Lincoln through Friday night. After the All-State concert, most students headed home, readying themselves for the upcoming Thanksgiving break. Warrick, however, turned around and headed off to New York City to participate in the Macy’s Day Parade. She will be joined by fellow senior, Alyson Wolfe, who also was selected to play in the parade. Warrick had previously auditioned for the Macy’s Great American Marching Band. Each hopeful marcher was required to send in a seven-minute solo. The program picked 180 students from across the country to perform as one band in the Macy’s Day Parade on Thanksgiving. Warrick had seen the band perform in previous years, watching the parade on TV with her family. “My mom and I talked about how cool it would be to be in the parade,” Warrick said. “My mom talked to Beave and he knew about it because he had tried out for it in high school, too.” Warrick, who had never been to New York City before, was looking forward to the sight-seeing and seeing a Broadway musical. “We fly out the Saturday before so we have a lot of free time,” Warrick said, “We’re going to see The Sister Act and spend a while in Times Square Garden.” Warrick traveled to New York City with her parents, brother, and sister. Participants alternated rehearsal time with tourist activities and were able to take in the sites of New York City before marching through the streets on Thanksgiving Day.

Reading goes virtual Kindles come to HHS

Reading a book without the book and pages to turn? Many students here at Hastings High School have been talking about a new electronic device in the library; the Kindle. The Kindles in the library are highly popular; unfortunately, the library only has five available to check out. All the Kindles where checked out within two days of making them available to students. The students that have the privilege of carrying a Kindles around love every minute of it. “I like the Kindle better than a book because it’s more advanced, or more this day and age,” sophomore Damian Kimberly said. There are many other things students love about the Kindles. “Kindles are just much easier to access. If I want a book I don’t need to go to the library, they are just on the Kindle,” sophomore Britney Gibson said. The physical convenience of the device is what attracts students. “It’s a space saver, I don’t need to carry four books around. Instead I just need to carry a little skinny thing around and all my books are on there,” Gibson said. Media specialist Faye Friesen said immediate turn-around is

a plus with e-readers. “If a book comes out you can order it, but you have to wait a week or two to get it. With the Kindles as soon as it comes out you can order it and be reading it within less than a minute,” Friesen said. The Kindles also have a down side. “Usually if a book comes out and I want to know if it’s good I will buy it and when I am done with it I will donate it to the school but with my e-reader, I can’t do that,” Friesen said. There are 30 people waiting to check out a Kindle. Since they are so popular Friesen wants to order five more. “I am so anxious to be able to check out one of the Kindles, I am hoping to get one for Christmas,” freshmen Nicole Dylan said. In order to check a Kindle out students must obtain a permission form from one of the librarians. The form must be signed by a parent or guardian and the student. This form states the student takes financial responsibility for the device. Once the form is returned to the library, he or she must wait patiently. Overall the Kindles are a very popular thing in the library. “I would highly recommend the Kindles to anyone; they are just amazing,” said Gibson.

I M A X

I N You may have noticed that the Hastings Museum has made some major changes to the Lied IMAX Theater. The theatre changed the carpet and also repainted the walls. One of the major changes to the theater was the projection screen and projector. The screen is now a silver screen, which means that 3D digital movies can now be played in the theatre. The projector is an all-digital system. Now, the museum orders a film they want to show, it comes on a portable hard drive about the size of a small paperback book. The hard drive is then attached to the computer then loaded onto the museum’s server. The server is where all of the movies are located after moved from the hard drive. Instead of a projectionist needing to be in the projection room 24/7 while a movie was running via the film projector. A projectionist does not need to be present for the new digital system. The system runs like a playlist. Someone will program the computer to play a certain movie at a specified time. Then, at the allocated time, the movie will play on its own without someone physically starting the movie.. The new system can also run full High Definition 3D movies. The screen/ picture is crystal clear because it’s digital. Recalling your childhood, you felt like you were getting sick whenever a panoramic image of a landscape would come on screen. New Hollywood movies instead of only the educational ones will also be available. The only set back with the Hollywood films is that since the museum is a secondary theater they cannot play new movies as soon as they come out. They will have to wait a little while before they will be allowed to show it. Overall the system is incredible and amazing. I would highly encourage anyone to go see a film in the new and improved Lied IMAX Theater. The screen along with the new projection system is a one of a kind between Denver and Omaha

Movie Theatres have a lot of choices. What movie to see? Who to go with? What snacks? Now a whole new choice is rising above all, 3D or non-3D. When polling 10 students on whether they preferred 3D or non 3D movies, 4 out of 10 of them said that they preferred 3D movies over non-3D movies, and when polling teachers on the same subject, 2 out of 10 said that they preferred 3D over the conventional 3D movie. “If i could pick between 3D or non 3D i would pick 3D. I think that the effects on 3D movies are really amazing” said Hastings High freshman Eric Garcia. On the contrary,one Hastings High student has this to say about 3D movies. “They can get annoying at times, especially if you pay the extra money to see the movie in 3D, and they don’t even have that great of effects.” Hastings High senior Liz Sullivan said. “More people will go to 3D movies if the movie seems like it will have good effects in 3D. Otherwise it really just depends.” Adam Heyen said. One downside to going to a 3D movie is the rise in price. On average the price of a 3D movie is 20% higher than the price of a non-3D movie. “The rise in the price comes because it costs quite a bit more to film a movie in 3D than it does to normally film a movie, the rise also goes to pay for the 3D glasses.” Adam said. Though 3D technology seems very advanced, according to beembee.com, the first demonstration of 3D technology in a movie was in New York, New York, in the year 1915 at the Astor Theatre. The first movie to encourage the use of 3D polarizing glasses was the Italian, “Nozze Vagabonde” in 1936. The highest grossing 3D movie in its opening weekend was “Alice in Wonderland” in 2009 making 116.1 million dollars in three days. 3D technology can make for a really good movie, so sit back, relax and watch a good movie.

“Never stop striving for the goal you want to achieve,”

senior Briton Thomas said. Those are some wise words for players who are striving for their pre-season goals. Winter sports coming up which include swimming, girls and boys basketball and wrestling. “The goals I have for the season is to come together as a team and of course win more games,” Thomas said. The girls are preparing, starting with conditioning the first few weeks. “I think we are going to continue getting better and working hard,” Thomas said. Senior Matt Geiger is preparing for his wrestling season with conditioning. “We have boot camp which is intense conditioning,” Geiger said.

Matt Geiger has been wrestling since he was four years old. This is his final high school season. Some of Geiger’s goals are to improve his individual performance and add wrestlers to the team. Senior Bryon Kronk is making a splash in his senior year of swimming. He swims the 100 butterfly and the 200 I.M, Or otherwise known as Individual medley. “Last year’s season I dropped seven seconds on my 100 butterfly and went to state,” Kronk said. For his pre-season improvement he swims for two hours of practice five times a week. “I want to drop more time of course and swim better,” Kronk said. The girls’ and boys’ basketball teams play their first game in Seward on December 1. The first home game is December 3. The swimmers head to Kearney on the same day, and the wrestlers host Seward in a home dual December 1.

World series Missing: key to wrap up the lockout wyattdavis reporter

Happiness for St. Louis fans, sadness for Ranger fans. This is how the 2011 MLB season ended. It was a great all around championship for baseball fans everywhere. “Cardinals did a great job. They had a pretty good challenge with the Rangers, but the Cardinals walked off the field as 2011 World Series champs,” St. Louis fan and sophomore Kiley Maughan said. The finals had some twists and turns but the St. Louis Cardinals came out on top with a walkoff game winning home run. Special Education teacher Pete Theoharis, who worked for the Kansas City Royals before teaching, was surprised at the outcome of the World Series. “It was very exciting baseball to watch. I did think the Rangers would win it, but the Cardinals proved themselves against the Rangers in the final game,” Theoharis said. The World Series was played in a best of seven match-up, and they played all seven games. The Rangers didn’t get off to a very good start. “The big problem for the Rangers was the bullpen. They couldn’t pitch, and had a very slow start, and St. Louis came up with some big hits to retaliate,” Theoharis said. St. Louis defeated Texas 4-3 in the series of games. Albert Pujols for the Cardinals had a total of six home runs in the World Series, which help lead the Cardinals to victory. Theoharis believes the Rangers will be the favorite in next years World Series. “The Rangers will probably make the World Series again as the favorite. St. Louis is not as big a favorite, but will be a very solid team,” Theoharis said.

Hot chocolate, Christmas cookies, and cherry pie are just a few of the holiday foods we eat during the winter that eventually catch up with us. By the time spring comes around we are five pounds heavier than we were in the fall. It’s hard to stay in shape during the winter, especially if you’re not in a winter sport. Active students at have decided to do something about this winter weight gain. “I do soccer in the spring and we have conditioning throughout most of the winter so we are ready,” senior Seana Lewis said. Lewis along with many other soccer players do not do a winter sport so the conditioning helps a lot to keep them in tip top shape for the spring. “On days that we don’t have conditioning I go to the YMCA and run and lift weights on my own. It’s easier to go by myself because then I can go at my own pace. When soccer season comes I have less work to do because I am in good shape and I love that feeling,” Lewis said. The YMCA is a great place for students to go after school and workout. Along with Lewis, junior Cassie Dycus and senior Lauren

Right now the NBA is in turmoil. The first basketball games were scheduled to start on Nov. 1 with the Chicago Bulls playing the defending champions, Dallas Mavericks; the Houston Rockets against the Utah Jazz; and the Oklahoma City Thunder playing the Los Angeles Lakers. All these games were going to be great match-ups, but the NBA is still in a lockout that started on July 1. It is now in its 153rd day and it doesn’t look too good. Now, David Stern officially has announced that all games are cancelled through Decemer 15th because the NBAPA has filed a antitrust lawsuit against the NBA. The reason they are in this lockout is because the NBA and NBAPA (NBA Players Association) can’t come to agreements on many issues. Already resolved issues in this bargaining agreement include the length of the players’ contracts and the amnesty clause (each team will be able to waive one player with a previously existing contract without it counting towards that team’s salary cap). Problems that are already resolved include: luxury tax (when a team goes over there luxury tax they will be fined a little more than before for every dollar they go over the luxury tax), mid-level exception (which allows teams to sign players even over the salary cap), escrow (a percentage of players’ salaries that is put into interest bearing accounts by the league) and “stretch” exception (this exception would allow teams to waive a player and stretch his pay over an extended period of time). Now, here are the issues that are not resolved

Bartunek also enjoy working out there. “After cross country gets over I have nothing else to do and I have to stay in shape for track so I go to the YMCA everyday after school,” Dycus said. Unlike Lewis, Dycus prefers to workout with other people. “I have a hard time motivating myself so I like to workout with other people. Once I get started though I can’t stop!” Dycus said. Dycus’s workout routine usually goes something like this: 1. Run about three miles 2. Do abs in the weight room 3. Do P90x abs 4. Cool down (sometimes go to the sauna to relax muscles) “I go to the YMCA and run on the treadmills during the winter to stay in shape not just for track but also just to stay in shape in general,” Bartunek said. Bartunek also works out with her younger sister during the winter.

A strong finish Being on a school sports team may not seem out of the ordinary unless you are a foreign exchange student. Some exchange students are involved in school sports, many of which are in Cross Country. Richard Pabista, and exchange student from the Czech Republic, joined to the team and gained new experience. Cross Country is not something he is used to. The team usually goes on a street run or out by the lake, which is nothing like Pabista did back at home. “Workouts are completely different, because I do only track and field (middle tracks), so there are more endurance in those workouts,” Pabista said. Street running is not the only thing unfamiliar to Pabista. “Being on varsity is probably the biggest experience which you can get. You can race with the really best people. It is challenging,” Pabista said. He joined the, being one of the top varsity runners. Pabista fits in with the team well. “It is not totally easy to do XC, but my teammates make it easier,” Pabista said. He gets along with the coaches just as well. “I appreciate coach Rosno and Coach James and I will miss them when XC ends,” Pabista said. The coaches are a good push for him to keep running. “I really love the speeches by coaches every

time before practice. That is an awesome thing, very motivating,” Pabista said. Not all the exchange students had Cross Country in mind when they came over to Hastings. Michel Sturm came over from Germany with a different sport in mind. “At first I wanted to play football, because it’s like a must have, if you’re in America,” Sturm said. He attended football practice twice at the beginning of the season but didn’t have his sport’s physical at the time, so he wasn’t allowed to play. He had never played football before and the plays were confusing to him. “So I decided to run Cross Country, because I knew the rules (not that difficult) and I think it was an awesome choice,” Sturm said. The sport is so simple but has many members, all of which Sturm gets along with perfectly. “I love the whole team; we are like a big family,” Sturm said. He especially appreciates the coaches who have taught him many new techniques and how to make the best out of each person. Sturm is a top varsity runner and will be represented Hastings High, Friday October 21, at state in Kearney. Both Pabista and Sturm know that all sports seasons come to a close but they will see teammates in the halls or on the weekends.

and are holding us back from an NBA season so far: basketball-related income split (this is how much percentage the players and the owners split the revenue they get from basketball), and the CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement) This agreement determines how long the NBA and the NBAPA will work together. Each side has agreed on ten years, but they disagree on the year of opting to terminate the deal. Players like Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder shooting forward, and Lebron James, Miami Heat forward, are doing flag football because they are so bored from the lockout. Kevin Love, Minnesota Timberwolves power forward, is also doing other sports during the lockout like beach volleyball. Deron Williams, Utah Jazz point guard, is signing with a Turkish team. Williams is one example of many players who are signing with teams overseas because of the lockout. They just want to play and the fans just want to watch. On November 3rd, 50 players from the NBA had a call with an antitrust lawyer about decertification. This means that NBA players formally remove the capacity of the union to collectively bargain on their behalf. Players would become independent employees of NBA teams and would lose union protections they currently enjoy. If somehow players decertify, there would be a slim chance of a NBA season because once they decertify they will probably follow up with an antitrust litigation, which would take a long time and the NBA season can not start until everything is solved between the NBA and the NBAPA.

“We sometimes run up and down our stairs at home until we get in trouble for running in the house, “ Bartunek said. Girls are not the only ones fighting against the five pound winter weight gain. Senior Cody Frazier has also decided to do something about it. “I go to the YMCA almost everyday after school and lift weights and run sometimes on the treadmills,” Frazier said. Frazier works out with senior Austin Herringer, and sophomores Kevin Tur, Brandon Thomas, and Tanner Johnson. “I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to do track this year but I still want to stay in shape during the winter,” Frazier said. Whether students are lifting weights, running at the Y, or running up and down stairs at home, staying in shape during the winter is very important. So instead of giving up favorite holiday foods, hit the gym every once in a while to keep the unhealthy weight off. Students have shown that there are multiple ways to fight the winter weight gain and to keep a healthy body throughout the winter.

Gamers awaiting new big releases nathanaelsass reporter The game industry is

looking to make sure the year turns out a success, and that’s echoed by the scores of high-profile games being released in the coming months. One of the big hitters: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, is quite possibly the most anticipated game of the year. Senior Adrienne Kenton is incredibly enthusiastic. “I’m really excited.” Kenton said. She said not many girls get into video games because “they think it’s just a guy thing.” When a huge game comes out, people inevitably want to play it. And for game companies, teenagers are their main target audience. There’s nothing more disappointing than having to go from playing an awesome game to going to school. The solution to the problem? Stay home. Yup, the day after a big game comes out an “epidemic” spreads across the school. “I tell my mom I’m not going to school,” sophomore Jake Konen said. “I fake sick,” chimed in sophomore Alex Panganiban. “The last game we did this for was Gears of War 3.” And if it weren’t for a pre-planned day off for state volleyball, they would do it again for Modern Warefare 3. “I preordered it the first day,” Konen said. Both Konen and Panginiban play on Xbox 360, which looks to be the most popular system to play MW3 on. No matter what system gamers have, the next few months are big ones. The shelves are being filled with great games, and that trend is set to continue through December. Super Mario 3D Land, the next game in the awardwinning Super Mario series that has sold over 200

million games, stands as the best-selling video game series ever. Only on Nintendo 3DS, this most recent installment adds, thanks to a 3D glasses-free screen, depth of scenery extending into the horizon and the illusion of things coming out of the screen. Sonic Generations is the newest entry in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. The game is available on Nintendo 3DS, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. The eleventh installment in the Battlefield series, Battlefield 3, sets players in the shoes of soldiers in 2014, fighting an exaggerated future version of the war on Iraq/Iran. BF3 has gathered great reviews, and it’s available on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Also just released is another threequel, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, only for PS3. Sporting brilliant graphics, plenty of movie-inspired scenes, and relentless action, Uncharted 3 is currently among the highest-rated games of the year. Releasing exclusively on Wii on November 20, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the latest game in The Legend of Zelda series. The motions of protagonist Link’s sword directly track to the remote, making for a new, intuitive adventure. If you’re not a hardcore gamer but still enjoy a game every once in a while, Mario Kart 7 is the game for you. Only on Nintendo 3DS, Mario Kart 7 is the game everyone knows and loves, but in 3D- without glasses. Movie-quality 3D makes the game pop out of the screen and also descend into the distance- and it really works. Finally, coming to 3DS, Wii, PS3, and X360 is Rayman Origins. Using brand new software, the developers are able to transfer their art straight into the game, and the result looks like the lovechild of a cartoon and a painting in motion. Having already amassed several perfect reviews, Rayman Origins looks like it could be the sleeper hit of the year.

Snowday play lexyvanboening reporter It’s raining, it’s

snowing, the old man is snoring..and so is most of the high school population. What is there to do on cold winters days you may be wondering? “I usually sleep in and play video games,” senior Ryan Grealish said. Most boys on rainy days admit to being glued to their video games. But for the rest of the population that doesn’t want to stare at video games all day there are different things to do. “I like to cuddle up with a huge blanket and watch movies,” senior Liz Sullivan said. Sometimes the best thing to do on a cold day is grab your favorite blanket and Disney movies and just relax. Cold days are meant for eating the entire box of pop-tarts and your siblings’ secret candy stashes. You could invite over a small group of friends, light up a toasty fire, and make smores. Spend an afternoon by the fire starting your own novel, or just cuddling up with your buddies.

“On cold days I like to cuddle up with my dog,” senior Oliva Koester. If you’re a more active person on cold days you can always layer up and head outdoors. Find a good hill and some sleds and take off sledding down your favorite places, just make sure you bring a friend to pull you back up to the top when you are too tired. “Sledding is one of my favorite snow time activities,” sophomore Lacey Lurz said. Snowball fights are also a timeless favorite. No matter how old or young you are throwing cold wet balls of snow at your friends is always fun. On top of that, when you’re done throwing snowballs you can gather them up and make snowmen out of them! Add a scarf, button nose, and two eyes made out of coal and you’ve got frosty at your fingertips. So no more complaining about nothing to do on cold wintry days because truthfully there are plenty of things to make it worth your while. From cuddling inside to making your own snowman, cold days can be just as good as summery days.

Boys trashing bathrooms Damage costs adding up fast; access may be blocked next

photoillustration kelseychristensen co-editor

There must be monkeys living in the bathrooms of Hastings High school. that could be the only explanation for the feces that has been found in places other than the toilets in the men’s bathroom. Studies show that monkey’s throw their own feces when they are upset. In the case of HHS students, the throwing of feces quite frankly means a lack of human intelligence. Among the throwing of feces, there has been a number of instances of vandalism that have occurred in the boys bathrooms at HHS. “Wadded, wet toilet paper and paper towels. Writing on bathroom stalls with markers. Scratching things into bathroom stalls,” Principal Jay Opperman said. The vandalism to the bathrooms seems to be a recurring problem that administration is handling. “We have been receiving reports regarding vandalism in the bathrooms mainly since mid October,” Opperman said. This is a problem that administration is finding difficult to get a hold of because it is happening in more than one place. “These events have occurred in male restrooms, 1st floor across from office, 2nd floor near center stairwell, and 2nd floor near east end near room 230,” Opperman said. The vandalism has not only been a problem for the administration to handle, but it has affected the work of the custodial staff. “The custodial staff is upset. We have been trying to improve the environment of our bathrooms over the past couple years. We have been in the process of remodeling and the custodial crew has been doing a good job of cleaning the

restrooms. When you work hard to improve and then things are not treated well, it is aggravating to the custodians and to the staff and students,” Opperman said. There is no financial estimate of the damages that have been done thus far. “The vandalism has required extra cleaning so far. More permanent repairs of painting or replacing stall parts will be considered later,” Opperman said. Since this matter is costing the school money, there are serious repercussions for the vandalism. “Unfortunately, we have been locking bathrooms for short periods of time so the vandalism can be removed and also to send a short message that having multiple restrooms available is a convenience that is a hassle to lose. If the behavior persists it may also be necessary to limit opportunities to use of passes during class periods,” Opperman said. Those are the repercussions for the school as a whole, but if the vandals are found there is a totally different protocol. “Vandalism is an offense that could have both school consequences and legal consequences. Possible consequences could include suspension, restitution, and/ or a citation for vandalism from the police,” Opperman said. That being said, students who see another student vandalizing the bathrooms, should notify a teacher, or Mr.Opperman directly. Not only will that better the student life at school, but it will also be helpful to the hard working custodial staff. The Tiger Cub and the administration thank you in advance. And please remember that only human beings attend HHS, not feces throwing-monkeys.

A number of changes have taken place over the years

shanesamuelson online editor

Hasting’s as it is known today, is not quite the thriving metropolis as New York City, New York or Chicago, Illinois, but the small city has grown quite a bit since its beginning days. “Hastings was founded in 1874, and had just around 12 citizens when it was founded. Today Hastings has around 25,000 citizens,” Catherine Renschler of the Adams County Historical Society said. Hastings was established in the middle of nowhere, but there is a reason behind the choice of location. “Hastings was founded here, because we are at an intersection of two railroads,” Renschler said. What is the importance of the railroads one may ask? The railroads help with transportation; they make moving people, livestock, and, well, anything very easy. Speaking of livestock, one of the mainstays throughout the generations in the

Hastings area has been agriculture. “Agriculture has always played a tremendous role in our society. Without agriculture there would probably be no Hastings,” Renschler said . Most citizens today know where the Adams County Courthouse stands, but the present location is not where it was originally built. “The original courhouse was built in 1889, but was demolished in 1964. Now there is a parking lot where the original building stood,” said Renschler. Though the original courhouse is no longer to be found, there are still plenty of other antique buildings in Hastings. “The oldest buildings in Hastings would be on the ‘Farrell Block’ or 537 West 2nd Street,” said Renschler. For those who don’t know where the Farrell Block is, it is the block that has the popular sandwich chain, Jimmy John’s in it.

Just like any other town, Hastings has thrived since its founding, but it has also had some bad times. Hastings is a city with many stories of sucsess and of failure. One major sucsess story is that of Edward E. Perkins, or the man many may know as the inventor of Kool-Aid. When Perkins was a child, his family owned a general store. As a boy he was intrigued when a family friend brought Jell-o packets to their store. Perkins became obsessed with pre-packaged food and started making his own concoctions. Throughout his life Perkins held many jobs such as postmaster, newspaper printer, and working in his parents general store. Perkins started making the Kool-Aid we know and love today in 1934 after many other products sold such as Nix-o-tine, a nicotine addiction cure. Hastings has a rich history. The historical society is a good place to start when looking for more background.

Thanksgiving marks the day where people think of all the good they have been blessed with. America is not the only country that celebrates this holiday. Canada, Germany, Liberia, Norfolk Island, the Netherlands, and some Asian countries celebrate their own version as well.

Spending smart Layaway offers shoppers options Many families these years are a little tight on cash, or do not want to face big credit card bills anymore. Those families may be interested in the return of layaway in Wal-Mart. “The return of layaway was demanded by consumers,” store manager James Carson said. Layaway is eligible for things such as toys, electronics, and fine jewelry. And only a fivedollar fee is necessary. Each purchase must be over $50 and each item must be at least $15 or more. Layaway began on October 16 and pickup must be made by December 16. “People can now get to buy things for their families things they have never been able to before,” said Carson. The return of layaway is very helpful for families who want to get some Christmas shopping done early. With just making small payments over a period of time, people save a lot of frustration. “When I was at a young age, layaway was very handy,” business teacher Gwen Davidson said.

Putting a gift on layaway means you can purchase an item without paying the entire cost all at once.

Right Answer: July 4, 1776

Q: Who is the vice president? Sheldon Kennedy Answered: Arnold Schwarzenegger Right Answer: Joe Biden

Davidson thinks layaway is a good thing because it helps with budgeting and now people can buy what they want and pay for it later. With the return of layaway, people can shop to their convenience. Families can minimize credit card debt. One of the biggest pitfalls of last minute Christmas shopping is the sudden, and often big balance on their monthly credit card statement. Consider using layaway as a budgeting tool and pay for their items with cash. “With layaway coming back parents don’t have to worry about hiding gifts,” Davidson said. Layaway helps parents avoid the snoops. When consumers put their purchases on layaway they don’t have to worry about storing them at their homes. However, now they allow purchases to be donated, such as toys and other items they do not use anymore. With that being said layaway will not be available for Black Friday. “Layaway is great for most people and it would be sad if it wasn’t there for people,” said Davidson.

a lot easier for them to use a wild turkey instead of a goose because turkeys were in such a larger supply. Mmmm pie.. A thought many Americans have while thinking of Thanksgiving. Pumpkin pie is by far the most popular and most associated with Thanksgiving Day. Now it is very unlikely that the pilgrims and native Americans sat down with something that looked like grandma’s homemade pie, but it is possible they something of the sort. The Wampanoag tribe was the group who celebrated with the pilgrims. It is possible that they brought various gourds and squashes, which would have included pumpkins. Over the years, Americans in their quest to add sugar to everything would have of course included the delicious pie on the table.

Famileis have traditions passed on from generation to generation, and others will start their own traditions. More often than not, a few of these traditions are always seen: pumpkin pie, turkey, and football. But the Tiger Cub staff asked themselves: “Why is this so?” Football has become something of a traditional activity as well. It is common to think of eating a big meal and then sitting around for the rest of the day watching games on ESPN. The first NFL game to be broadcasted nationally on NBC radio was the Bears against the Lions in 1934. The Bears (record of 11-0) would “bearly” beat the Lions (record of 10-1) with a score of 19-16. This game launched the beginning of watching the classic

turkey day football games for families. Why turkeys? Although turkeys are commonly accepted as the main dish of most Thanksgiving dinners, it was not necessarily eaten at the first Thanksgiving. Historians believe that eel, lobster, seal, goose, and duck would have been more likely to be eaten. There are a few theories, behind the origin of eating these birds. One is because of Queen Elizabeth I. She was very fond of eating geese when feasting. When she found out about the Spanish Armada sinking as it was on its way to attack England, she was so please that she ordered a second goose for their feast. The goose from then on became the favorite bird of the harvest celebration. When the pilgrims came to America, it would have been

Don’t u luv drama? gracekelly reporter

What’s with all the drama!? No, this isn’t talking about another round of angtsy status updates clogging up the new feeds of the student body; it’s about the drama club. This month, Tiger Theater is starting up rehearsals for their next project. The theater department’s upcoming undertaking is a one act titled “don’t u luv me?”. Not just the average production, this play is a double-edged sword. While it’s exterior is the typical teenage drama, it holds a message no one should ignore. “I believe it is trying to bring up the fact that relationships frequently can turn abusive/controlling whether it is physically or emotionally. It’s about how we can’t stay with someone who would do such a thing to you, and how you need to get out as quickly as possible. If you can’t do it alone, you need to tell someone, whether it is your mother or the cops,” said Hannah Lau, who plays “Jen” in the show. Now, this may seem like things are being taken to the extreme, but domestic violence is something that needs to be taken seriously. “You can find stories of abusive relationships in tons of magazines like seventeen and people... For instance, look at Rihanna’s relationship with Chris Brown. We can’t be blindsided by this issue, and act like it isn’t happeningbecause it is, even to the celebs. Songs like “Mean” by Taylor Swift, “Pearl” by Katy Perry, “Russian Roulette” by Rihanna- they’re examples!” Lau also stated. And, it’s not just a problem for the leading ladies and actors of Hollywood- relationship violence and abuse

happens off the red carpet too. The one act spotlights how one seemingly perfect relationship takes a turn for the worse. The curtains open on “Angela” (portrayed by senior Hailey Hemmingway) a sophomore being courted by the studly senior “CJ” (played by Colin). The future of their blossoming romance looks bright, but soon, the metaphorical clouds of domestic abuse begin to darken the sky. “My character is very much the bad guy- but he hides it under his romantic ways- he’s good at hiding his true colors,” says freshman Colin Spilinek. Even though Spilinek is a freshman, he is a veteran to theater and was excited to land the leading role. He has been involved with the theater since he started to read, doing shows at the community theater and other summer projects with director Margret Marsh. “I wasn’t expecting it because I couldn’t do the first show because of cross country, and Luke and Joe did a really great job with that so I didn’t think I’d make it into this one.” Not only is this the start to his promising journey with HHS theater, but it is a challenging role to slip into. “I’ve played villain’s before- but they’ve always been the classic dark cape, top hat type of guys. This is the first type of guy you could actually run into- it was a challenge, but it’s easier because he starts out as a nice guy and it’s gradual,” says Spilinek. This one act promises to give new faces their spotlight in the drama club, and teaches an important lesson everyone needs to learn.

One-act underway What’s with all the drama!? No, this isn’t talking about another round of angtsy status updates clogging up the new feeds of the student body; it’s about the drama club.

Anticipation ran high in the community of Twi-hards as the first installment of the final chapter of Twilight: Breaking Dawn arrived. I have always been the one to like a book more than the movie. Still, I do enjoy movies and have seen all of the Twilight installments. I went into this movie with an open mind, as I do with everything I have read, but I am honestly indifferent about the outcome of this movie going experience. Undoubtedly, there are those of you out there who would not be caught dead sitting in that theater watching one of these movies, unless it was to mock those of us who do go to them. Then there are those of you who do like the movies and have not yet seen this one. I hope this review does not ruin it for you, although you should not value my opinion above your own. The last time we saw Bella and Edward, Edward had agreed to turn Bella into a vampire once they were married. And at the altar is where we begin our journey. The two get married and go off on their honeymoon and do what grown up married people do. The scenes portraying the two on their honeymoon are comical at some points but indeed prolonged. Bella soon realizes that she is pregnant, which everyone thought was impossible because she married a vampire. Edward becomes quite concerned so they return home. Jacob finds out about the “demon,” as he refers to it and is just as concerned for her health as everyone else because the baby is crushing her from the inside out. The rest of Jacob’s werewolf pack also find out about the baby and are determined to kill it and Bella but Jacob stops them and leaves the pack because he wants to protect Bella. Once again Jacob and the Cullens are teamed up against a common enemy; the only problem is that the enemy is Jacob’s family. Other things happen too, but if I told you these things then you would not have any prompting to get off your couch and go see this movie. Sorry for the inconvenience, but you will manage. The acting was well done and Robert Pattison’s (Edward) makeup was decently done so he didn’t look nearly as gross as he usually does. The werewolves are still cool, although the scene where they are talking to each other in their werewolf form was quite head ache inducing. For the most part I do recommend seeing the movie, I do not regret going. Although I do have to tell you this: some moments are laughable, serious, sad, and then there are the moments where you seriously consider vomiting. All in all I did honestly enjoy the film and it followed the book pretty decently. I will admit that I did not read all of the last book so I was sitting there guessing just as much as the person next to me. This diminishes my opinion of this movie versus the book just slightly, for I can only compare the parts of the book I did read. I am very anxious to see this saga come to an end and hope that the Twilight fanatics were pleased with the outcome of their beloved book.

We write, you read, grammar rules Greetings grammar lovers, knowledge seekers, and nerds of all ages! For this adventure in the land of grammar, we will be focusing on subject verb agreement. We won’t waste time...let’s get started! The first thing you need to do is identify the verb(s) and subject(s) of the sentence. By knowing whether the subject is singular or plural, you can figure out what to do with the verb; you’ll need to know what the verb is so you can make it agree. If the subject is singular, the verb will end with an “s”. For example: Sally RUNS up the stairs. If the subject is plural it will not. For example: Josh and Ben RUN to the bus. It is easy enough to decide whether the subject is singular or plural when it is one or more names, but here are a few words that often give people some trouble. Always singular: everybody, someone, anybody, nobody, no one, everyone, one, either, either, each, and much. Always plural: Several, few, both, many, and others. Can go either way: some, any, none, all, and most.

When a sentence uses “neither, nor” in it, base the verb off the subject closest to it. Example 1: Neither the players, nor the coach wants it to rain. Example 2: Neither Bill, nor the trainers expect her to come. Finally, prepositional phrases. As your writing gets more descriptive, you will use prepositional phrases aka prep phrases. Each prep phrase will start with a preposition, such as over, about, in, under, of, etc. These phrases can be used to describe your subjects and verbs. But it can also make it harder to figure out shanesamuelson what the subject of the sentence is. online editor For example, the sentence “the trees in the park are already changing colors.” TREES is your subject. It is plural so you use ARE and not is. But because PARK is closer to the verb this can be confusing. Another example is “the students waiting in line for tickets to the concert want good seats.” STUDENTS is the subject and it is plural. For that reason, WANT does not have an “s” at the end of it. This has been another lesson in grammar brought to you by two concerned seniors. Keep trying and never be ashamed to look in your grammar book or ask your English teacher. They both know what they’re talking about.

fined line between “just kidding” and being offensive? I’ll tell you. It’s in the moment just before the tears, or the punch, or the report to the administration. The placement of this line exists somewhere different for each person and no one has any way of knowing where it will be. By now, you’re waiting for the list of steps I generally provide. Do not worry, I do not plan to disappoint. Step one: Remember the golden rule, “Treat others as you would like to be treated.” That’s it. That is the one rule that you need to remember. It is one that is taught to children but seems to be forgotten with age. Well, just a reminder, it still applies. The fact that the use of race, gender, or sexuality as a derogatory comment is insulting seems to be overlooked by the general high school population. Words such as “gay” or “retarded” are thrown around in place of “dumb” or “stupid.” This is not acceptable. It is the equivalent of someone using your name as a replacement for the word “dumb.” If everyone in the school said your name anytime they wanted to talk about anything in a negative light, how would you feel? I imagine that it would feel about the same way that homosexual people or mentally challenged people feel when someone carelessly states that his homework is gay and that the locker is retarded. It doesn’t feel good. One may look at the situation and ask, “How exactly does the homework manage to be gay?” The answer to that question is simple; it doesn’t. The homework has no sexual preference and

Hailey’s how to haileyhemenway Being a Sunny D, I spend a fair co-editor amount of time talking about stereotypes and, with World AIDS day coming up, I thought it would be fitting to discuss such topics. So here goes: How-to be aware of the impact your words have on others. In this day and age, words are thrown around in a careless manner. Especially among high school students, stereotypes are accepted as joking matters and it seems that no one takes it personally. Until they do. So where is that line? Where is that ever so fine, barely de-

therefore does not fit the definition of homosexual, or gay. Similarly, the locker cannot think, seeing as it is an inanimate object, and therefore cannot be mentally challenged. Would you call the locker female, or brunette, or straight? No, you would not. So what makes it okay to declare that it is retarded or gay? Absolutely nothing. In addition to that, there is the common use of stereotypes. Students hear them every day; “Asians can’t drive,” “Black people are good at basketball,” and “People who play football and volleyball are really dumb.” Are all of these statements true? No. Stereotypes affect everyone. Think about the last time that someone made a negative assumption about you. Maybe you were called dumb because you’re blonde or weird because you’re in band or stuck-up because you happen to have a nice car. Did it feel good to hear untrue things about yourself? My guess would be that it didn’t. Sure, stereotypes can be backed up by a few people who happen to follow the code but then couldn’t you say it about anyone? Would it be difficult to find a dumb brunette or redhead? Or someone considered weird who isn’t in band? Or a stuck up person without a car at all? These are all reasonable as well. At this point, some readers are protesting. The argument is that “I make that joke because I have a friend who is okay with it and therefore it must not be offensive.” This is another common misconception. Just because one person is not offended by a comment you may be making doesn’t mean that it holds true for all people. Everyone has a tolerance level but it is not there to be tested. The safest way to avoid a hostile situation is to think before you speak. If it could be offensive, then keep it to yourself! It all comes back to the golden rule. No one likes to be insulted and we all know that it can happen unintentionally and grow out of hand in a matter of seconds. At thinkb4youspeak.com there are examples of the ways that stereotypes and misconceptions can hurt. And the effect that it can have on one single student whether they show it outwardly or not. This is a serious matter. We are tomorrow’s society and it’s time to step away from the ignorance. Be aware of the way your words can affect someone. It only takes one step.
