Red and White Cutest Couples by Caitlin Ackley Every year, the Juniors and Seniors vote on who they believe the cutest couples at WHS are. This year, Abbi Bell and Jake Trejo received the most votes, Lacy Mynhier and Adam Moose second, and Searra Clausen and Noah Hester third. Spanish class, a place full of love. Or at least that’s the case with Abbi Bell and Jake Trejo. After eight months and a great first date at Red Robin, they are still in a loving relationship. Abbi had nothing but nice things to say about Jake when asked what attracted her to him, “He has a great sense of humor, he is kind, and he has a great smile.” Jake had the same thing to say about her but with a little twist in the mix: “Her smile, sense of humor and her shyness.” When asked what he loved most about Abbi, Jake responded by saying, “There are many things, but a few are that she makes me laugh, makes me very happy and I always have a good time with her no matter what we do.” When asked the same question, Abbi said, ”He is very caring, has a big heart, and he makes me happy :).” Abbi said that the most romantic gift she had given Jake was, “I made him a scrapbook of us.” Jake said that he had given Abbi, “A necklace for Sweetest Day.” When both were asked about their favorite moment with each other, Jake responded, “There are many moments, but my favorite moment with her would be all the nights over the summer when we hung out, went swimming, and played tennis.” Abbi responded with, “One of my favorite’s would be when we went to where I used to live in Sylvania and walked all the neighborhoods; it was fun.” Young love, filling the air... it started 13 years ago, but they just didn’t know it. After a month of dating and a first date (double date) at the movies, Adam Moose and Lacy Mynhier are off to a great relationship. “His hot bod and thick facial hair,” is what Lacy said when asked what attracted her to him. Adam had to say, “Her personality and her cute smile.” After this month of dating, Adam and Lacy said that their favorite moment with each other would have to be every moment <3. When we asked Adam what he loved the most about Lacy he said, “She’s laid back and likes to have fun,and she is different than other girls.” Lacy was asked the same question about Adam and her response was, “His personality, pretty eyes, and amazing smile :). The most romantic gift they have gotten for each other is a $25,000 Tiffany ring... similar to Carrie Underwoods. It all started in Mr. Burt’s math class (nine months ago) for Searra Clausen and Noah Hester. Their first date was at the bowling alley in Archbold. When asked what attracted him to her, Noah responded with, “Her eyes and pretty blond hair.” Searra said, “His personality, sense of humor, his beautiful hair and squishy tummy”. When asked what she loved most about Noah, Searra said, “The way he can make me laugh. There’s never a dull moment with Noah Hester, and again his squishy tummy.” Noah had to say, “Her eyes, personality, and her rockin’ body!” A favorite moment that they both agreed on is laying on the trampoline looking at the stars, but Noah added, “Or going to see the lights at the zoo.” The most romantic gifts that they have given each other are a Build-a-Bear from Noah that has camouflage boxers and a pillow pet from Searra.
February 2012 Red and White Page 2 ______________________________________________________________ Dating Outside the School By: Alex Drummer Jacob Bray is a senior at WHS and is dating Katie Hau, a junior from Elyria. The couple met at church camp. They started texting each other on and off for a year. Then, the next year at camp, Jacob says she became his “camp cutie,” and the rest is history. They’ve now been together for over five months. Jacob and Katie enjoy going out to Troy Lind’s (making fun of Felter), hanging out with family, going to the movies, and going to an Indians games occasionally. Jacob says, “The biggest challenge is that I can’t see her whenever I want to. Also, we have to trust each other a TON more than normal couples.” Jacob likes that Katie is “beautiful, funny, caring, awesome, incredible, amazing, and phenominal.” She’s the best thing that’s ever happened to him. Unfortunately, the couple may not get to celebrate Valentine’s Day because Katie’s mom’s birthday is the 11th. Cassidy Ladd, WHS senior, has been dating Joel Cabrara since around prom time last year. They met in math class last year, and Cassidy sends a special thanks to Mr. Schneider for that! Joel is currently attending Defiance College, and Cassidy finds not getting to see him as much a big challenge. However, they’re making it work and enjoy the time they do have together. Cassidy says that when they’re together, they enjoy “watching Derrick Rose and the Bulls tear up the court while eating his mom’s amazing food.” There seems to be many things she loves about Joel. Cassidy says, “He makes me laugh, and he believes in me. He encourages me and picks me up when I’m down. He does this adorable little girl laugh whenever you tickle him. He’s your average Mexcian stud.” The lovely couple is going out to eat to celebrate the day, which happens to be Cassidy’s favorite holiday! Bailey Creager, a Senior at WHS, is dating Brogan Roback, a junior at St. John’s. The two first met up when Brogan came back to his home town for a basketball game. The couple, of just over a year, enjoys doing just about anything together - from going out to eat to playing sports. “There is never a dull moment with Brog,” says Bailey. She finds the distance difficult, but they make it work by driving a lot. Bailey especially likes Brogan’s personality. He can always make her laugh, and they get along great. As a bonus, Bailey also adds to the list of things she loves about him, “his good looks, of course.” For Valentine’s Day, the couple plans on going to see “The Vow” and out to eat. Dugan Shadbolt is a Junior at Wauseon. He’s dated Hope Dreher for a year and a half now. Dugan and Hope enjoy watching movies, playing “Words With Friends,” Skyping, and just hanging out. Dugan finds the biggest challenge about dating someone out of high school to be just not getting to see each other much during the week and being too busy to talk as much as they used to. Dugan says, “I love everything about Hope, but I think I love her smile the best.” To celebrate the big day, they are ,of course, going to see “The Vow” and then will probably go out to eat somewhere.
February 2012 Red and White Page 3 ______________________________________________________________ Endless Love By: Alex Drummer
If you’re feeling a little down about love, look no further. The Red & White caught up with two longlasting relationships. Mr. Schneider and Mrs. Hackett have both been with their spouses for quite some time, and they are great role models to look up to! Mr. and Mrs. Schneider met when Mrs. Schneider was doing her student teaching at WHS. She started in September, and in October, they went on their first date, which was chaperoning the Homecoming Dance. The next day, they went to the BGSU Homecoming and got engaged on their second date! Mr. and Mrs. Schneider will be married 40 years on July 14th. They have two kids together, Stephanie and Joe. The couple enjoys watching movies, traveling, and going to watch their grandchildren participate in sports. When asked what his best Valentine's Day memory, Mr. Schneider replied, "I had the chorale sing a special song to Mrs. Schneider in school, and then I had one of the male members present her with a diamond necklace." Mr. Schneider says the key to making a relationship last is "being unselfish, communicating, and not smothering the other person or being too possessive." His advice to others is to try to get involved in your girlfriend/ boyfriend's interests and always give the other person some breathing room!
Mr. and Mrs. Hackett met in their freshman tennis class at Adrian College. Mrs. Hackett adds, “We both got a B in that class because we were paying too much attention to each other!” The couple has been married for 35 years. They have one son, Ryan, who is 28. In their spare time, they enjoy traveling to foreign countries, gardening, and taking ballroom dancing classes. Mr. and Mrs. Hackett don’t make Valentine’s Day a big production because since they’re both in education, they usually have more time in the summer to do exciting things. They usually just go out to a nice dinner to celebrate. Mrs. Hackett states the key to making a relationship lasts is, “Recognize early on that you have faults. If you except that about yourself, you will more graciously accept the faults of your partner. Look to God as the third person in your relationship, and you’ll have more strength as a couple.” That sounds like some great advice! She also recommends guys read “Ten Stupid Things Men Do to Mess Up Their Lives” and girls read “Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives.” Both books are by Dr. Laura C. Schlessinge. Dr. Laura always says, “Pick wisely, then treat kindly.” Mrs. Hackett believes reading these books will help he/she to “find the right person for a lifetime, rather than settling for the wrong person.” Mrs. Hackett also adds, “Be Happy with what you have in this life. You need to only open your eyes and look around, and you will see many people have much less.”

February 2012 Red and White Page 10 ______________________________________________________________ Top 10 Couples That Never Got Together by Abby Fisher 1. Ash and Misty from Pokemon Were you alive in the 90’s? Then you know what I’m talking about. I’m not sure what the guys were thinking, but whenever a girl watched pokemon, it was either for a.) jigglypuff, b.) clefairy, or c.) to see Ash and Misty confess their undying love for one another. Come on; Brock flirted with anything that had a pulse, James had Jesse and that odd talking cat, and you just wanted to strangle Gary. Ash was the only one left meant for her. 2. Harry and Hermione from Harry Potter ‘Hmm, I’m Hermione Granger. I can choose between a famous hero who’s destined to save the world through his heroic and selfless sacrifice, or a ginger who once made me cry so hard I had to spend all day crying in a toilet stall before he accidentally set a mountain troll on me. Who am I gonna pick?’ 3. Finn and Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time Yes, I am aware that Princess Bubblegum is technically just a giant wad of chewing gum and probably shouldn’t be paired up with a human, but does anything in the land of Ooo make the least bit of sense? It certainly doesn’t make sense to me that PB constantly rejects Finn, even though she owes the safety and well-being of her entire kingdom to him most of the time! 4. Sirius Black and... ANYONE! from Harry Potter Face it: Sirius Black has the whole ‘bad boy’ thing going for him. He’s an escaped convict from the infamous wizard prison Azkaban, he’s an illegal animagus, has a couple of sweet tattoos (in the movie at least), and is the owner of an awesome motorcycle that can fly. Gotta give credit to J.K. Rowling for creating such a charismatic, dreamy character. But shame on her for not putting him with anyone! He’s gone through a lot in his life, from his best friends dying to having to ward off dementors every second of every day. Doesn’t he deserve to be with someone who can bring him happiness? 5. Princess Peach and Mario from Super Mario Bros. Sure, Mario’s a whole head shorter than Peach. Sure, he’s a plumber while she’s Princess of the Mushroom Kingdom. But he’s been saving her butt from a giant turtle for 25 years now, so he obviously has some redeeming qualities. And a nice mustache. That has to count for something. 6. Zelda and Link from Legend of Zelda From clearing entire palaces of demons and monsters to fending off those annoying little blue blobs (that I still don’t understand what are meant to be), Link goes through a lot for that princess. I still think he deserves more than that puny little kiss she gave him on the cheek in, what, the second game? 7. Phantom and Christine from Phantom of the Opera So, he happens to be a little possessive (to the point that he almost murders Christine’s fiance just so he can claim her as his own, but we’ll just gloss over that point). The Phantom also happens to be a composer, a magician, an actor, an architect, an artist, a writer, a beautiful singer, and... well, pretty much Jesus without the beard! Hey, there isn’t a song entitled “Angel of Music” in the show for nothing. Why on earth wouldn’t Christine jump on the chance to be with him? And don’t use the whole ‘half-his-face-is-deformed’ excuse. That’s just plain shallow. 8. Marius and Eponine from Les Miserables This one’s for everyone in the play last year, who were pretty much under the unanimous decision that Cosette should go and get attacked by a pack of rabid dogs. Eponine was the one truly in love with Marius; she had this unwavering devotion to him and would do anything to see him happy. But no. He decided to just let her die and marry a girl he randomly bumped into on a street corner instead. 9. Pocahontas and John Smith from Disney’s Pocahontas I know that Disney was trying to be more ‘historically accurate’ in Pocahontas 2 when she married some guy name Rolfe, but come on! If I wanted facts, I’d go read my world history book. But from my Disney movies, I demand a sense of happily-ever-after! We all wanted her to be with Smith, we all expected her to be with Smith; and by not having her get with Smith, you’re breaking the heart of every little girl who’s ever watched a Disney movie! 10. Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett from Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet St. They both have crazy hair, they both burst into song at random intervals, and they both have odd homicidal tendencies. They’re perfect for each other! Sure, Sweeney’s spiraling depression is caused by the death of his wife whom he still harbors deep feelings for, but that just happens to be a minor detail in Mrs. Lovett’s book...

February 2012 Red and White Page 17 ______________________________________________________________ Bray verses Shadbolt Dugan: Happy V-Day Jacob Bray, I’m sure you’ll have a love filled day. Jacob: Same to you Dug-o-matic. I’m sure your day will also be filled with the romantic excitement of Valentine’s Day. Dugan: Well,of course, I will because Cupid just shot me with an arrow of love. Jacob: Oh, that is so sweet. Where did you get hit at Dugmigo? Dugmigo: I took an arrow to the knee. Jacob: Were you formerly a guard or something? Dugan: Why yes, yes I was before I took an arrow to the knee. Jacob: So, being an experienced guardsman, did Cupid’s arrow hurt when it hit your knee? Because my cousin Greg got hit by Cupid’s arrow once and he said it felt great. Dugan: Did Cupid’s arrow hurt? Really? duhhhhh it did its an ARROW! Yes, it hurt very much. Jacob: But Hacksaw Jim Dugan, true love can never hurt. Errbody know dat. Dugan: You would be surprised, Mr. Bray. Well, going in it doesn’t hurt too bad ,but when you have to pull it out, now that’s when the real pain starts. Jacob: That is understandable, I guess. But I still don’t see how being madly in love can hurt. I mean Cupid’s arrow has the little heart tip. There is no way that could hurt! Dugan: That little heart packs more punch than a regular arrow. The pain is very intense. Jacob: Maybe you just got hit with a bad arrow, or Cupid was having a bad day that day. Dugan: He better have been having an off day I hope he doesn’t usually shoot people where I got hit. Jacob: Taking an arrow to the knee can’t feel good. I guess you have a very minuscule point. When I was struck by the mighty arrow of love, it felt quite incredible. Dugan: You are absolutely bonkers JB and the feeling that follows after you get hit isn’t all that amazing.Girlfriends are expensive!!!! Jacob: You have a very good point
there, Duganizer. But the money spent on the woman isn’t a penny lost for this guy. Dugan: Ohh, little Jacob, you speak of what you do not know. This isn’t my first rodeo. I know money spent on the women is well spent, but that doesn’t mean money grows on trees.To add to that, you have to pay the hospital bill to take the darn arrow out of your knee. Jacob: Money doesn’t grow on trees, you are right. But that has little to do with how the arrow feels when it hits you. This topic is really dumb. Dugan: This topic is really really dumb. Let’s change to something else. Jacob: Alright, sounds good to me`. How about we debate our ideal Valentine’s Day dates? Dugan: Sounds like a plan, Mr. Bray. Jacob: Good deal, Dugenstien. I shall begin. My ideal Valentine’s Day date would be simple and quaint. We would start with dinner, which I would try to make at first, but we would probably end up getting take out or something. Then, we would proceed to go shopping at the mall or Walmart. After that, we would venture to Skye Cinema and watch “The Vow” or some other chick flick. That would be about it. Dugan: The Vow is not just some other chick flick its an amazing and inspiring movie...not The perfect date would be to start at The Walmart then from there just head back to my house for a long night of snuggling and what not. Jacob: Oh, you’re the snugglie type. That makes sense you look like the snugglie type. But that date seems really bland. You have to spice up your Valentine’s Day date. If I do say so, you have to HOPE it isn’t too boring. Dugan: Ohhh J I see what you did there and it is quite punny.. get it its like funny ,but with a pun and oh ,of course, I’m the snuggle type I’m just like a big teddy bear Jacob: If you’re a teddy bear, then I’m Papa Bear. Simple as that.. Dugan: NO! Jacob; You’re just in denial. Just
because you like to snuggle, doesn’t mean that you can’t do something super fun on Valentine’s Day like ziplining down a mountain or taking a road trip to the Arctic Tundra. Dugan: Dude a road trip to the Arctic sounds awesome.We could be like the Ice Road Truckers on tv. Jacob: Hey Duganator, how about we forget about Valentine’s Day with the women and take a road trip to the Arctic. It could be like a man date. Dugan: Oh come on JB ,a road trip to the Arctic is not a man date at all; its really romantic.. Well ,yeah, I guess that makes it a man date. Okay, sure lets go!! Jacob: I’ll get food. Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of bacon. Also, we need steaks. Dugan: Don’t even think about forgetting extra bacon ,but we are really bad at staying on topic this time. What were we even talking about? Jacob: I don’t remember either. Oh well. Dugan: k

Ah, Valentine’s Day: a day full of flowers, chocolates, romance, giant stuff teddy bears and shiny jewelry. However, for a significant percentage of the population, there is one thing keeping us from properly enjoying this joyous holiday: a date. Which is why the notorious February 14th has earned itself another name in our book. Single’s Awareness Day, otherwise known as S.A.D. But don’t worry. No matter how bad this day might seem for the romantically impaired, there is always a better solution than plopping down on the couch with a tub of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and wallowing in misery. So here’s a few tips on how you can stay sane this Valentine’s Day. 1.) Two Words: Movie Marathon. Let’s face it: if you’re single on Valentine’s Day, you’re practically counting down the seconds until it’s February 15th. Fortunately, nothing passes time faster than plopping down on the couch and knocking back a good movie or two. However, do yourself a favor and skip on the romantic comedies. Instead go for a healthy dose of slasher movies and horror flicks. Because we all know that it’s the young, flirtatious couples who get picked off one by one by the psycho axe murderer, but it’s the innocent, pure, (and usually single) character who always ends up making it to the sequels. 2.) Spread the love and volunteer. Sure, it may be the last thing that you feel like doing, but hey: if you can’t find a date, might as well find a way to make all of your taken friends feel shallow (just kidding ^-^). So find an animal shelter you can work at or go door to door asking for donations for the local food-cupboard. If you’re really ambitious/super sweet and heartfelt, spend some quality time with an elderly neighbor just to brighten their day. Anyway you look at it, volunteering is a great way to express your love for your community! 3.) If there’s no one there to spoil you, spoil yourself! Cook yourself a fancy dinner, treat yourself to a giant box of chocolates, or just go out and buy yourself something nice. Why do you need a boyfriend or girlfriend around just to pamper you? Think about it: not only are you going to get exactly what you want when you buy it yourself, you’ll also be saving the money that you would have spent on your significant other! Okay, when you put it like that it sounds shallow, but there’s nothing in the handbook that says that singles can’t be spoiled on Valentine’s Day as well. 4.) Stay off of MemeBase. Or at least resist the temptation of the Forever Alone Face page. I trust this bit of advice is self-explanatory. 5.) Don’t spend the day alone. Just because you’re single doesn’t mean you have to go solo on Valentine’s Day! Get together with some of your single friends (or even that hipster couple that totally rejects the ‘commercialism’ associated with Valentine’s Day), and hang out together. Go to the movies in one big mob. Invade the restaurants normally labeled as ‘couple’s hangouts’ and take up all the seats. Go to the candlelight dinner at McDonald’s but play hide-and-seek in the playground instead! It doesn’t matter what you do together, just know that as long as you’re with friends, it’ll be that much easier to successfully survive the storm known as Valentine’s Day.

It is one of the oldest debates in the book. Who knows you better, your best friend who has been with you through thick and thin or your girlfriend who you hang out with all the time these days. So, to finally settle the debate the Red&White sat down with Wade “Heepshire” Wooley and Colin “Houdini” Dietrich and asked them some questions about their best friends ,who happen to be each other, and their girlfriends. The numbers don’t lie. Score The Question Wade Colin Alex Favorite Movie?

February 2012 Red and White Page 20 ______________________________________________________________ Top Ten Ways to End it By: Colin Dietrich Although, this is the original work of Colin “Houdini” Dietrich, with the assistance of Dugan Shadbolt and Alex Drummer, these do not reflect our actions or personal opinions. I suggest that you use these carefully and only use them in emergency situations. If you decide to use these “Ways to End it”, we will not be responsible for your actions and/or your injuries. Also, be prepared to be a legend of infamy and considered the biggest jerk in the school. 10. Write on their Facebook Wall- This is a very simple and effective way to end it. Not only are you telling her it’s over, you are also announcing it to all of your friends. Therefore, you don’t have to break the news to your friends and family. You are killing two birds with one stone.You can also just simply change your facebook relationship status to single. 9. Billboard- If you are a complete jerk, what could be funnier than letting the whole city know at once? I would also suggest putting your number on the billboard because you are a single man now ,so the ladies may be wanting to call you. 8. Switcheroo- This is not as simple as the others, but what you do is plan a date with your significant other. However, instead of going on the date, send someone else in your place. This will cause some mass confusion. Also, this one is more thoughtful since you are sending her another date. 7. Ignore Her- Classic...This is a classic and will never get old. Simply, you just ignore all her texts, letters, phone calls, facebook posts, and anything she sends you. You could also pretend that you were never dating to begin with. After a short few days, she will get the point 6. Send her a Singing Gram- Nothing quite like breaking up with her when she is expecting a good surprise. The lovely chorale will come in, and she will think it is so cute that you sent her a special message. Little would she know, that the message is you are breaking up with her. Funny...very Funny! 5. Prove you are Related- Here are step by step directions that will, for sure, get you home free. First, explain to her that you’re adopted and you’ve never met your real parents. Second, embark on “noble” quest to find parents. This will give you a few days to get away from her. Third, forge a birth certificate stating that her parents are your parents. Fourth, break the news and stress that you can never confront your parents because it would be painful. Last,but not least, enjoy your new relationship as brother and sister! 4. Sabotage the Relationship- This is easy because you don’t even have to do the breaking up, she will. Just do everything she doesn’t want you to do. Flirt with a lot of girls, go to the bathroom with the door open, stop practicing good hygiene, talk about uncomfortable things and other stuff similar to that. Then, days later you will get a nice lovely text message saying she wants to break up with you. Simple...I know! 3. Take Me Out to the Ballgame- Everyone knows the old “Kissing Cam” at the ballgame or the big proposal in front of everyone. When they show you on the screen, she will be expecting a nice kiss or something special but just end it! Then ,she will cry and get some quality camera time. The best part about this one is you may see yourself on ESPN the next day. 2. Cheating- It is every girls worst nightmare, to get cheated on. However, if you are the biggest jerk to walk through the halls, go for it. The good thing about this one is you may find your next “Love” or the next girl to try a sweet break up on. If you do try this one, be ready to have every girl in the school hating you and any respectful guy hating you. 1. On Valentine’s Day- If you have no conscience and you want to make it special, why not do it on Valentine’s day? Valentine’s Day is set aside to show love and affection for one another, so they won’t be expecting it. Just approach the day like any other day, however, when she gives you a gift or that special kiss, break up with her. Also, I suggest using one of the above “Ways to End it” on Valentines Day. It’s twice the harsh with half the effort. For example, the morning of Valentine’s day write on her facebook wall and say, “Babe, you mean more to me than my life itself... but I’m suicidal.”
