SBOs set out their goals

Julia Saxton Senior Editor Last spring we put in our votes on the ballots. The new Roy High SBOs were elected and they now lead the Royals this school year with pride. This school year's SBOs are Sammy Welch (president), Katie Jones (vice), Nick Hilton (vice), Jeremy Illum (vice), and Shawna Crane (vice). Not only did we receive the new SBOs, but also a new student government advisor. Mr. Ellsworth stepped up to the plate this year when Mr. Puzey, the previous advisor, left Roy High. With the new leaders, the new region change and the new challenges, we have an interesting school year up ahead of us. However, according to the SBO president, we can push through. Welch says, "I think the new 5A change pulls Roy into a great whole new level of competition. I think it definitely will be a hard year with stiff competition, but I think it will push Roy High to come out with all we've got and to do our very best." A lot are worried about the competition. However, some may only be looking at the glass half empty. "It makes me feel like we are more important as a school, whether it really means that or not. I also hope it will give us, as a high school, more recognition all around," said Illum. Welch explained that the student government has set goals for each of the counsels, also known as the class of group officers, to get more in touch with those in their grade. The SBOs also agreed that they would like more people to get involved. Illum states, "The best advice I can give to anyone in the school is get involved! There is one thing that will ruin school for you and that is not taking advantage of all the clubs and organizations we have floating around the school." "We want people to love coming to ex-

tracurricular activities and to always support each other even when it gets rough," added Jones. The SBOs have emphasized that they would like to see more school spirit and pride shown throughout all aspects of school-that students will have more faith in their fellow Royals and also in themselves. "I want to change a lot of people's attitude when it comes to Roy High sports. I think everyone should be there to support every sport, and have faith in our teams," said Hilton. Illum comments, "It really makes my day that we can all relate to one thing, loving Roy High. I know some of the people out there couldn't give a rat's tush about what happens at school, but for the majority that do, go Roy!" It's not only the SBOs that need to be working hard toward a fun and enjoyable year, but the entire student body. Some of the SBOs gave some advice on how to make this

year a school year that will be truly unforgettable. Welch says, "The best advice I can give my fellow Royals is to live. Just live every moment like it is your last. Treat yourself well and treat others well also. Don't hold back because you only live each moment once. Always be you. Stand up and stand out! Don't worry about each little thing. Just do your best because your best is the best." "Work hard and have fun. It's hard to work hard without a little fun," stated Hilton. All in all, the student government delivered their message. They want this school year to be great and have a lot of goals in mind to help accomplish that. "Our most important goal, I believe, is to get more school spirit and to create those memories that will last a lifetime. High school is a big part of teenage life so we need to be happy and live it up while we have the chance," says Jones. `Rise Again' Royals.

Garrett Cederquist Editor-in-Chief With the recent and swift departure of Mr. Scott Palmer as an administrator here at Roy High, many Royals have been wondering what caused his departure and who his replacement is. "Mr. Palmer left due to a teacher resigning at the junior high, and he had the qualifications to fill that position,"according to Mr. Pfister, principal here at Roy. Since Palmer had the title of "intern administrator," the district still saw him as a teacher. Palmer is now teaching Physics and Shop at Roy Junior, subjects he taught before becoming an intern administrator at Roy last school year. "They asked me to do it, so I went," said Palmer when asked about the move to the junior high. Palmer's last day at Roy High was September 18, and he began his tenure at RJH on September 21. Palmer was replaced by Mrs. Teri Spiers, a former counselor at Weber High School. Spiers spent a mere seven weeks at Weber before filling the administrative void at Roy. She also spent nine years as a counselor at North Ogden Junior High, and was a health teacher here at Roy High before that. Spiers has a very athletic background; she attended Weber State University on a track and volleyball scholarship, she is also a three-time All-American in javelin. She also tried out for the U.S. Olympic Team for the 1988 (Seoul, South Korea), 1996 (Atlanta), and 2000 summer games (Sydney, Australia), but missed the cut by one spot. She also coached volleyball at Weber State.

Obama's czars spark debates

Garrett Cederquist Editor-in-Chief President Obama ran his presidential campaign on "Change." From a political point of view, it is debatable how much change we have seen from the Obama White House in the nearly nine months that Obama has been the leader of the Free World. Obama's biggest change he wants is healthcare reform, a transformation many Americans see as a government take-over of our somewhat troubled current system. Another change, although not as big, that Obama has implemented is his use of "czars," or as he calls them, "special advisors." Now you may be recounting your European history thinking "Czar? Wasn't that in pre-World War I Russia and other parts of Europe?" Well, yes, it was, but those czars were rulers of those lands; Obama's czars have nowhere near as much power as say Peter the Great did in the late 1600s. These czars only report President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, or other members of the president's cabinet, depending on what their "czar appointment" has them doing. Czars are not a new commodity in the American political system, as 11 of the 12 previous administrations dating back to FDR have used them. FDR, who held office from 1933 to 1945, had a total of 12 working czars, the most until President George W. Bush (2001-2009) had 35 active czar jobs. President Obama is nearing Bush's mark with 31 czars. Obama's czars are hand-picked by the Chief Executive himself, which is legal under the Constitution, per say. But only a handful of the 31 current czars have been confirmed by Congress, which brings up a lot of controversy when it comes to the backgrounds of some of his appointees. For example, in March of this year, President Obama appointed a man by the name of Van Jones to the position of "Green Jobs Czar," which was to make jobs more environmentally clean, something Jones happens to be an advocate of. Jones seemed like a good pick until this July, when it was discovered by several news sources, most notably Fox News' conservative talk show host Glenn Beck, that Jones had been part of a group called the "9/11 Truthers," who believe that the United States government was responsible for, or at least had prior knowledge of, the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Jones resigned his position on Sept. 6 amid the rising controversy and what he called a "vicious smear campaign" by "opponents of reform" in the health care and clean energy sectors. As more czars are appointed, there is sure to be more controversy, and it will be interesting to see how the media and the White House respond to all the questions that are sent their way.

Improvers call for more attendance

Ryan Anderson Staff Reporter Held Fridays after school is an event not often mentioned: Improv. Those who have ever watched the show "Whose Line is it Anyway?" should get the basics of how improv works, but to those who have no idea what this article is about, we give an explanation. Improv is basically getting to act in short skits, except no scripts are written beforehand. All dialogue and situations are improvised by the participants, which makes improv a unique form of acting, since the actors get to create their own stories. The point of these sketches, of course, is to be humorous, since making up something dramatic on the spot is really hard to do. One example of a sketch: A girl wanted the janitor at her school to replace her old English teacher because she believes the janitor would do a better job teaching. The janitor became more interested in her eventually (at which point the sketch ended). However, Calvin Dittmore, this year's improv workshop teacher, gives this important guideline when participating in a skit: "Never try to be funny." Instead, actors are incouraged to just act the way they think their character would act, and the laughs should build naturally. To keep audience members from getting bored watching an improv skit, Jeremy IIlum, the president of improv and a S.B.O., gives some more helpful guidelines. First, have an emotion in mind before your sketch begins. Next, when you get into character, overplay your emotion. Your character is not just sad or angry, for example, he is manically depressed or outraged, etc. The point of this is to get the audience instantly interested in your character, since you only have a few minutes of time to play as that person. Because this is a school, it is always important to keep the sketches clean. The situations that unfold in a skit can sometimes become a little too inappropriate, in which case you should either stop the sketch or have your character change the subject. How far over the line that is deemed acceptable is often objective, of course, so the best idea might

be to ask about it. One more important thing: No swearing. On why more people should attend improve on Fridays, Illum said, "It's a really good way to develop people skills, and it's also really fun." Those who would like to see improve skits but not participate in them

should go to the Roy High Improv shows on Thursdays. Those who feel a little frightened about acting in front of others may want to listen to Daniel King, one of the regulars to attend improv. "You get nervous at first," he stated, "but you get used to it."

"Some people may think that students that quesstion the dress code have `questionable morals' but that is not the case."

Do you agree with the school dress code?

Julia Saxton Senior Editor Weber School District's Policies and Procedures, Article 5, states that the district is "...committed to provide a safe, orderly, and positive environment conducive to teaching and learning. The Board recognizes that dress and grooming affect the behavior of students..." Here at Roy High, along with other various high schools, school dress code seems to become a constant issue every single school year. From tiny shorts to revealing shirts, you can find almost too easily in the halls of high school. The question isn't how can we solve the issue? But a matter of, why is it even an issue? I strongly believe that students should be able to express themselves without looking like someone with questionable morals. It's important to always be who you are, and I understand that style is a big part of doing so. There are, however, a few students here at Roy High who do not enforce the dress code on themselves enough. This doesn't mean I'm all for strictly enforcing the dress code; I'm rather just for following it. I have to admit, that sometimes I can hardly blame the administration for stopping some of the students that walk through these halls. I see some of my fellow Royals and wonder if they actually looked in the mirror before they left their house that morning. Not saying I'm the perfect fashion model, but at least I know when to wear what. I also wonder if some of these students even know the season and the weather taking place outside-their outfits don't always reflect that they do.

I have zero problems with expressing yourself through having your own style; as a matter of fact, I think it is really great. It is who you are. But there comes a point where it's all just too much, or should I actually say too little? Looking on the other side of the window though, there have been a few countable times where I have questioned the reasoning to why a student was stopped for what they had on. However, for the majority of the time, I often do not blame the administration and teachers; I would do the same in most situations if I were them. More often than asking why they were stopped, I ask why a student was not. Sometimes I see some students who are getting away with too much and think why they have not been stopped. Yes, our school has a lot of students and going to be able to go through every single student's wardrobe and address what is acceptable and what is not. But when I see some of these students that have their outfits on by the end of the day still, I wonder if favoritism ever plays a small part-as do many other students. The dress code is an important standard to follow and would make the administrations and staff's job a lot easier if it was. I'm not saying to find your heaviest sweater and longest pants, unless that is your style of course, but to simply conserve a little more. Remember we live in Utah, not Arizona. It is not always time for the small shorts and tank tops. With winter rapidly approaching, adjustments in wardrobe are practically necessary. Save yourself and the office the favor by dressing appropriately. You can be you without showing all of you. Remember you are a Royal.

Amanda Bay Opinions Editor "Those are too short, those are too tight, we can see your back, missy. You CAN NOT wear that!" How many times have you been walking down the hallway and heard this being yelled about, or even been sitting in class and you hear over the intercom that we are going to be having one of our lovely "dress code checks?" With the new year here the dress code seems to be a bigger problem than ever. I am a junior here at Roy and it seems that people care more about dress code than they do about failing grades, and if you ask me, there are a lot more people with failing grades than there are people having a problem with the dress code. When was the last time you heard of students being called down to the office and being talked to because of failing grades? In my two years here, I have yet to hear about that. We, the students, dress how we see fit, in what is comfortable to us. So I don't see why it is made into such a big deal. It seems that no matter what we wear, we still get told to go home and change. We have tried to find an even middle in this never-ending battle only to get shot down every time. I do not see this as fair, I mean we go to school five days a week, six hours a day; so I would think that we would have a little say in what we wear. I don't see anything wrong with shorts and an occasional tank top. I'm not saying to let us bare all, but there are some things that are just unfair. The dress code says, "...The ball of the shoulder mush be covered..."; it goes

on to say, "tank tops, athletic undershirts, halter tops, spaghetti strap shirts, see through shirts and bare midriff shirts are not allowed at school." I understand not allowing us to wear see through shirts, and even some spaghetti straps, but tank tops? That is one that I do not understand. They, the administration, do not want us to wear clothing that is "revealing" but since when is showing the ball of your shoulder revealing? As for the back, it is not stated that the back cannot be shown, but I see students get sent home and told to change for a little bit of the back showing. If it is not stated, then should we get into trouble for something that they did not put in there? Then there is the part that says, "...shorts and skirts much be at least finger tip length..."; again this is something that I do not fully agree with. As I said before I do not expect the administration to let us bare all but what about those girls that are tall? Should this apply to them? I think that it should be a little more than mid thigh for everyone. Some people may think that students that question the dress code have "questionable morals," but that is not the case.I understand that every school has a dress code but I think that ours is taking it just a little too far. We are treated as if we are in elementary. The last time I checked we are all in high school; therefore I think that we are all capable of picking our outfit for the day. We are told to act as adults. Well, if that is how we are expected to act, then I think that we should be given the responsibility to at least pick out our clothes and be treated as everyone wants us to act.

The music you choose to listen to usually starts at home

Bri Norlem Staff Reporter Do you listen to your parents' music? Do they listen to yours? For the first period of your life, all of what you listen to is whatever your parents do. You don't even truly have "your music " until you're in your "tweenage" years at the youngest. When you got to that point, you either broke away, or you may find that you didn't stray very far. At my house, we have always had music playing somewhere, at some volume, from some player. Even if we're having a conversation, there has to be a soundtrack to it. This nearly eliminates awkward silences, because when you run out of things to say, you can sing. We are quite the musical people. It is more common for my mom or dad to play for me some brand new band they've found and enjoy than vice versa. It is also just as common for me to ask for them to put on some Duran Duran, The Cure, or REM. Tuesday, August 25, I saw Depeche Mode come in concert for my birthday because they're my favorite band. They were formed in 1980, so technically, they're my parents' music. I brought two of my friends with me who were not familiar with Depeche Mode, but who were surprised to find how many of their songs they already knew. I remembered seeing numerous children, five to eightish dancing to the Depeche Mode jam, with parents in their late 30s or so. It was quite a different age range from Green Day, which I had seen a week before, which consisted mostly of teens, people in their late 20s who live as though they were still teens, and teens' parents. Perhaps the fact that my parents are only 18 years older than me contributes to the fact that we listen to each others' music. In a poll I took of 32 students, their appeared to be a correlation between students who listened to their parents' music and vice versa, and age ranges. I was actually surprised at how many students actually do listen to older music. A few people answered with "sometimes" and "kinda," halfway-type answers, and funny enough were the blank stares I received from everyone asked as they tried to remember how old their parents were. I also discovered some different reasons for music choices from a few people I interviewed. "My parents are Mexican," commented David Rodriguez (senior, 18), who gave me two definite `no's to my questions. "They listen to some weird stuff." Music choice can be an illustration of rebelling and individuality. For some, it can also be a medium for connection with others, even one's old, young, or "Mexican" parents.

electronics: 2 Don't be a slave to Harrison Group 2006 According to The Teen Trends Study, the average 13-18 year old spends more than 72 hours a week using electronic media. This is a danger for all of us; we all have had the experience of, "I'm just going to research something on the internet for school." And then mysteriously somehow we find our way to spending 2 hours on our Facebook, Myspace or Twitter. It's easy to stay on the computer and talk to your friends and upload new pictures or spead hours texting or talking on the phone but it can do more harm than help. By simply turning off the computer or television or silencing your phone for a couple hours, you'd be amazed at how motivated you can be and how much you can get done.

Learn to say NO: Every so often we all have the inkling to be the superhero, to meet everyone's expectations and to be people's `yes mans'. It is important that we learn to sort out things of what needs to be done, and what is optional. Sometimes a simple `no', can save you time to get done the necessities such as homework, work and even time for yourself. Don't fret about giving a huge, long explanation, a simple "I would like to, but I just don't have the time right now." Everyone knows how life is, they'll understand. And if you can't comply exactly what they ask of, maybe make a compromise that you can manage and that helps them as well.

Life in the Simple Lane

Kiersten Voorhees Editor-in-Chief Back to school, back to school. For everyone rising again in 2010, this can mean one thing, bring on the stress. From sophomores coming to a new school, juniors facing the overload of book work, seniors fighting seniorities and even to teachers having to deal with a whole new mess of kids, we all have a lot to handle as the first month of school has gone by and only more to come. So the question to all of us is, how can we relax a little, or more as, how can we simplify our lives so we can make it through this year, and if possible have a little fun along the way? This can be a feat not easily overcome, sometimes there seems to be so much to do and so little time to do it. So, here are a few tips that may not make school and life necessarily enjoyable, but at least bearable. Here are six simple steps, to help make your life more simplified. Let us all challenge ourselves to make this year great so we can really rise again, higher than we ever thought imaginable. "Our life is frittered away by detail... simplify, simplify. -Henry David Thoreau

when we're either struggling to get ready on time or searching for the last place the keys were set. To avoid the morning rush we all seem to face, try prepping your bag the night before, this way you can avoid forgetting things. Having your backpack ready the night before also forces you to have all your homework done, and not trying to wake up super early to get it done. Coinciding with being prepared strive to be organized, keep your keys, wallet etc. in a certain spot, this will avoid a lot of inconveniences such as the tossing of pillows and couch cushions in every which direction.

Ask for Help: Even though since we were toddlers our favorite words were, "I can do it all by myself." Every now and then we all need a little nudge by a friend or family member. We're all in this together, so not only do we need to reach out a helping hand, but we need to accept that outreached hand when it's offered. Now this doesn't mean to go threaten someone to do your homework, but maybe get a study group together to lighten the burden of school work.

5 Save time for things you love to do:

Sometimes we get so involved with life that we are on the go constantly, we have to go to school then work and somehow fit in some time for homework when we get home from our long day. This can hurt you more than you would think, simply spending even a half hour for something you love to do can realive a lot of stress and get your rejuvinated. Whether you need to go running, paint a picture, play some music, or bake a cake whatever it is you need time for you so you can stay away from the brink of insanity. "Life is meant to be enjoyed not just enjured" -President Gordon B. Hinckley.

Don't forget about others: Most of us are familiar with Mrs. Shauna Flinders who retired last year, we all loved her and enjoyed her, let's say, unique personality. Flinders gave me some advice that helped me out so much and that I have stove to live by. One day I came into class stressed and upset, later in the middle of class she looked over at me and said "If you're ever having a bad day, go do something nice for someone else." The best way for us to not be so overwhelmed, is putting a smile on another person's face.

Long lunch lines cut No hats policy needs to go lunch time short

Mike Gallegos Staff reporter Why is it that whenever the administration sees a student with a hat on in the building they have to take it? Have you ever been walking down the hall and seen a teacher or administrator take someone's hat? Have you ever been hassled about your hat? What is it about hats that make it so they absolutely have to take it? I've had those same questions, so I went to one of the administrators to find out why they do it. When I went to Mr. Palmer, an assistant principal at Roy High School, and tried to even bring up hats all he said was, "There are NO hats in school," then went about his business. I understand some reasons they do have dress code for kids who dress gang affiliated, and girls who dress in skimpy clothes, but hats just do not fit into that category in my opinion. Wearing a hat is not the same as dressing in gang clothing or wearing practically nothing. Most people wear hats because it matches what they're wearing or because they just didn't want to take so much time doing their hair. I read an article that was from the Round Table about five or six years ago when the school did allow hats and bandannas in the school. From the feel of the article, the student that wrote it seemed like he did not want the new dress code to go in effect. This article made me think about this subject a lot more because if you look back at all the kids in that time that actually wore bandannas do seem gang affiliated because of the color or the way the kids wear them but when it has logos on it or a kid is wearing a black bandanna on his/ her head how is that going to be considered gang affiliated? What would that even have to do with a gang; it's just stupid. So I went out and attempted to get some answers to all these questions. I couldn't find an administrator to ask about these so I went to a teacher. I asked why the school decided to change their policy on hats and she told me that the school found that the kids that did wear hats were more disruptive in class. I don't see how the kids who wear hats are disruptive. I have classes that the teachers let some kids wear their hats and I haven't seen any disruptive behavior. I decided to ask her if she thought it was a stupid rule, and she said, "No, not for me anyways. Years ago guys would always take their hats off when they entered a building; I think that in the last few years' kids don't have as good of manners. It's only polite to take your hat off when you come inside." What is your opinion on this subject? Do you think that kids act differently when they wear their hats or when they don't wear one? I don't think they act differently, but everyone sees things differently. I didn't really find the answers I was looking for but I found out why the teachers and the administration do not like us to wear them. It all comes back to the way kids behave.

hats or were in classes with kids who wore hats, I'm pretty sure just as many of them graduated as last year's seniors and if they didn't, it sure wasn't because of the hats. So still the question is why? What is so bad about hats that they had to make them a dress code violation? In the article I read one teacher actually said he thought that hats cut off circulation to the brain and slowed the learning process. That is just ridiculous! I've talked to four or five people I know that like to wear hats and all of them think that it is just a stupid rule. A 17-year-old student here at Roy High even said, "It's just another way for the administrators to control us even more." It wasnt just the administration who made this policy; it was the teachers, students, administration, PTA, and community council who passed this six years ago. In some ways I actually agree with what that student says, because I see no reason for us not to wear hats in school. If they do distract kids, I haven't met one that has ever been distracted by a hat or bandanna. I understand that some

Don't wish away your school year

Chelsey Hipwell Staff Reporter Seniors, we have almost 234 days `til graduation. We are all are excited to finally be out in the world, but just remember that these are the best days of our lives. This will be the last time you see the majority of your friends, the last time you all will be together. Our school years came and went in a blink of an eye. Teenagers never listen when adults say high school years go by the fastest. You always say you want to grow up, but do we really want to have all the responsibilities that our parents do? Every year something big has happened to the majority of the sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Most sophomores will get their licenses. When those little sophomores get their licenses, watch the roads. You are getting a lot of freedom being able to drive a car, and if you have your own then you can come and go when you please. That is a lot of responsibility. Then the juniors, juniors, you will turn 17, yes juniors you get to go to ratedR movies. You don't have to sneak in; you can now buy the actual ticket. The only thing with turning 17 and maybe being older than everyone else, you have to buy their ticket for them. The amazing seniors graduate, we get to walk down through that tunnel at Weber State and that's when we start the rest of our lives. We have to go out in the world and decide what we want to do for the rest of our lives. Do you want to go to college or just work for a year and save up for what you reallywant? Those are some really large things to decide on. Will you actually go to college or will you just hang out with your best friends from high school? Seniors, just remember that once you are out of high school, you're no longer a teenager; you are an adult, you live in the world like every other adult. When you are in school, you always go through the same cycle. In elementary you go from the bottom to the top, the same with high school you go from being a freshman then a sophomore, then junior and finally a senior. Even in college it's the same, then on to adulthood. You still have to work from the bottom of the group to be at the top. When you start your job, you are going to feel like the young one who doesn't know how things are run. You are like the fresh-meat of high school. During school we all have our little nicknames for those little freshman and sophomores, you have the fresh-meat and squash-mores. Not very many older classmen use those names too often, mainly because we all use to be the little fresh-meat and squash-mores. We all are going to remember those amazing Friday nights watching the football players tackle and the cheerleaders cheer, having the band's preppy music; being with friends, dressing up for the game, wearing the funny outfits to show your school spirit. We will never have a chance to look like that ever again. These will be about the last time we will see those football players all play for Roy High, watching those cheerleaders with their black and gold pom-pons. We know that this will be the best days of our lives, and it definitely went by way too fast.

Guys and girls definitely do things differently

Matt Saunders Staff Reporter Guys start their day listening to annoying alarm clocks go off, as they hit snooze after snooze to get a few more minutes of sleep. We start our day by showering, forcing clothes on that we think match, throw some gel in our hair, spray some of our extravagant smelling cologne on, and out the door we go. Girls start off as same guys by listening to the horrifying sound of the have- to-wake-up pitch screaming in their ears. This is when guys and girls parallelism ends. As you look into detail, girls shower for 40 minutes because they have to shave their legs and condition their hair so it flows the way they want. After showering they blow dry their hair, put on make-up, and throw all the clothes from their closet on their bed or their floor, trying on outfit after outfit to find the perfect match for Tuesday's mood. They search through every color of shoes in their closet to find the perfect engagement to bring out that bright turquoise line in their knit top, not to mention all the flip flop colors they can choose from as well. In school guys sit in class, asleep if it's a lecture, and run to the restroom for 30 seconds if unconditionally necessary. Girls sit in class drawing flowers on their binders and coloring them in with their seven different pen colors, running to the restroom even when they don't need to go to fix their hair and add another layer of make-up, touch up the thin line of black around their eyes that makes the color stand out in completeness. After school, guys pull the set of three keys out of their pocket, unlock their either cool car or really non-cool car, and bash the gas pedal to the floor all of the way out of the parking lot so their car makes the most noise. They like to clean their cars and add unnecessary installment of parts that cost fortunes. As girls walk to the parking lot, they pull from their $300 purse the three keys and the bunches of key chains from every state, vacation or cute saying they saw in the mall, then give all of their friends a ride home in their cute bubbly car. Girls will clean their cars but would much rather pay $10 or $15 to watch someone else do it. Bayli Sanchez, senior, who cleans the wheels on her car because, of course, they always shine like a mirror, said, "Oh my friend cleans them for me." The mentality between guys and girls when it comes to our rides is guys look at the make first Chevy, Ford, and Dodge... etc. Then we look at what size of motor and what shape it's in. If the drive train is good and it's a good deal, we get it no matter if the paint is fading or has a dent. Girls just say, "Daddy, come look at this car; it's so cute!" He comes and checks it out and drives it for her and she gets the car, on the basis that it's cute, but she couldn't tell a single soul what make, model, year, or what size motor it has. When its time for dinner guys walk in the kitchen, grab a plate while scratching their butts, load more food than the cow next door could eat. Then they consume the entire plate without the use of a napkin, only their jeans. Then they either go back for seconds or are the first to take a huge chunk of the dessert. Girls walk into the kitchen, grab a plate and take the smallest portions imaginable so it matches up with the calorie intake for the day. As bedtime rolls around, guys will stay up all night playing video games or surfing the web until they cant possibly keep their eyes open any longer, not worrying about what time they have to wake up the next morning. They stumble to their bed and fall asleep in their clothes that they have had on all day. Girls, on the other hand, start their bedtime process at a reasonable hour. They wash their face with the 12 different soaps and moisturizers and then put on a cucumber mud mask. They put on their super fuzzy pajamas brush their teeth, and comfortably get into their neatly made bed. We are all very different; that's how we keep this world running smoothly.

From the other side of the ocean:

Stefan Tschirner Staff Reporter It was any usual day in 2008. I was at home in Winsen, a nice city of 35,000 people near Hamburg, Germany. My mom and I were sitting in the living room, talking about school and the coming last two years of Upper School (high school). During our conversation we came to the topic of doing an exchange year, something I had already spent some time thinking about. You see, I got to like the American way of life when I went with my family to Florida the previous spring. I know vacationing in Florida may not be the most realistic experience, but it was still great. A few conversations and some weeks later, I decided to go to the U.S. for one whole school year. The next step was to find out what to do for an exchange year. The only way to get in a foreign country during the school year was to apply with a foreign exchange organization. I applied to several, and as they all gave their approval, I chose one that seemed best. For a while everything still seemed normal (it was still 2008) and my exchange year seemed so far away. I was required to read some informative books on my "program" instead of my favorite fictional stories. I also had some more serious conversations with my parents, and from time to time the exchange organization held preparation meetings with former exchange students and upcoming exchange students such as me. During this time, with the help of my parents, I started realizing what this all means; to leave everything I know, not just friends and family, but also the school I have attended for five years, the city I have lived in for 15 years, the whole environment and culture. I would have to speak another language, I would get to know another culture, another life-style. I would have to be really tolerant, open-minded and self-confident. I was sure I wanted to get these new experiences. For a brief time I had also thought about other countries, like Canada or Great Britain, but soon I decided for the U.S., as I simply do not know enough about Canada. I had previously visited England and lived with a host family there for a "language holiday" and could not really cotton up to the British way of life. I was supported by my parents the whole time, not just to do an exchange, but to do an exchange in the U.S. My dad lived in the U.S. for some months during his exams and loved it, so of course he was a big fan of the idea. My mom was also supportive; however, she admitted that she would never have done this herself. I am so grateful for their support and encouragement, as I know what it also means for them. I can't imagine what it must be like to let their oldest son go to another country that is so far away and not to know every day that I am happy and healthy. Not seeing me emerging, growing, let alone the feeling of living at home with just two instead of three kids for ten whole months. Time was ticking on and life was still normal as I went to school just like any other day until one day, my brother, my sister and my Dad just couldn't wait for me to get home. It was only two days before I went to California

exchange student shares his story

little kids rushed up to me and gave me hugs. In this moment I felt like a returning family member. In the following days before school started my host family really showed me I was a part of them and that they love to have me, as I was so happy to be here. They took me around a bit and showed me some beautiful parts of Utah, e.g. famous Salt Lake City. Well, famous at home, because of the past Olympic Games. I saw the city has much more than that. We also went to my new school, Roy High. Wow, what a big school. At first, I was prepared to go to DaVinci Academy because that is where my exchange brother went to high school last year and my host family just moved to Roy half way through the last school year. Everyone worked really hard to find a spot for me at Roy High and I am really happy finally to be here. After being amazed by such large school, I got the experience of creating my class schedule. Again, wow. At home we have 14 subjects that have to be taken every year. Here there are so many possibilities with really cool and interesting subjects. It was very hard deciding what I should take. After struggling and finally making a class schedule, we wandered through the school. I tried my best to find the way to my classes, but it was really hard the first time, even with my map. The next Monday was first day of school. My host parents got James and I there early in the morning. I even found my classes (with the help of the map) and I really enjoyed most of this quite long A/B-day. I was initially both excited and worried before attending school but it was great to discover that there are nice teachers and nice students here at Roy High. One of my biggest worries was that my teachers and the other students wouldn't be able to understand me nor I understand them. I was able to set my mind at ease because, so far, we seem to understand each other and that has made the whole thing much easier. The next few days in school passed by well as I settled into the real school schedule and kept up with my homework. My first homework assignments were not a big problem. It was just kind of strange that the days at home were suddenly so short. Then came the assembly on the first Friday at the football field. It was a great show. This was my first impression of the "school spirit" which is so important and famous in American schools. I really liked it. That is until during the assembly they asked for foreign-exchange-students to come down and introduce themselves. Surprisingly, they really meant me. Okay. Then let's go. At the end it was fun to stand there in front of all students and teachers and talk to them with the microphone, believe me. Now, after a few more days have passed, I am still happy to be here and enjoy my school more and more. At this point I just can remind myself to be very grateful for both my family and host family, who made this possible and also anybody in school, church or anywhere else who welcomed me with open arms and helped me to feel at home here in Roy, Utah, USA, on the other side of the big ocean.

on a three-weeks exchange by our school for a trip that I had been looking forward to for quite a while. When I finally came home, they could not keep the news to themselves for very long, so I got to know my exchange organization had phoned and I had a family. You have to know at that point, my whole decision was to spend my year in the United States. Different local coordinators in the whole country got my application, what they gave to different potential host-families (any state was possible). So this meant, a family decided to have ME in their family. I had no idea why they decided they wanted me. It was also really early in the year (spring-break was just coming), but in fact, they did choose me. I quickly learned of the Gowers family. Five kids between ages three and 15 living with their parents in Roy, Utah. I even knew where Utah is located in the United States. I was excited to write or phone them for the first time and get to know them, as I just received a little information-sheet about family members' birthdays and main interests. Now time was really flying by. A few months and many e-mails later it was time for the very last preparations; attending a last orientation-meeting at home in Germany for a weekend in a hostel, returning from my last summer holidays, seeing my uncle, my aunt and my grandparents in other parts of Germany again before I leave, meeting with friends, doing all important things like eating ice-cream at my favorite place a very last time. I talked with my parents about my expectations and if they really are realistic, about money I would need, what is important to pay attention to

On Saturday, Sept. 19 Tschirner participated in the Weber Credit Union Fun Run, taking first place in his age group and second place overall. He is currently on the Roy High Cross Country team.

during the year, how often I really have to phone them and finally, that everything is okay with me, that I am still willing to go on this adventure. One week before my flight, I had a goodbye party with my best friends. Everybody was so sad I was going. Then came the packing, organizing, being happy and sad at the same time. In the meantime I got my flight schedule. My first flight would be the 14th of August. First to Chicago, for a very last preparation weekend by the exchange program, talking about behavior and all important things again, having also the chance to see something of Chicago; then on to Salt Lake City

where I would meet my family. Then it was Friday, the day I was to leave. I do not like waking up early so getting up earlier than five in the morning to drive to Hamburg Airport was hard. There I had to leave my family, go through the security check, meet other exchange students before the flight, get on the plane, and fly for many hours. We had our stop in Chicago and finally I arrived at Salt Lake City Airport on Sunday. My first day was already the first great experience. We (another German girl flew with me) just came out the airport to the baggageclaim, where our "families" awaited us. The

the age of 50, he/she can then marry their cousin. Okay, that's just wrong. I have cousins and I could never look at them like that. Period. And what's with the age limit? What's so special about 50? How about this, when you're dead, you can marry your cousin. No offense to anyone but this is one strange state we live in. In Logan, women may not swear. I want to know who made this law up because we have a right to say what we like. I mean, there is a time and a place for everything and as long as you know that, why does it matter whether women swear or not? Here's one law that is confusing. It is illegal to detonate a nuclear weapon. You may have them but you may not detonate them. How about this, you can't have a nuclear weapon in this state. If not to detonate it, then why would you have it anyway? Whoever has a nuclear weapon, please move. Another crazy law can get many psycho house wives off the hook. A husband is responsible for every criminal act committed by his wife while she is in his presence. Why? I'm going to take the boys' side here and say why should the husband be responsible for his wife's actions? She has a brain, she can think for herself. It's not like the husband can control what she does from day to day, so why should he be punished? This law kind of makes me mad. Everyone is responsible for his/her actions and no one else can control that. If some wife stole something from a store while her husband was there, she should get in trouble, not him. Listen to this. It is considered an offense to hunt whales. Ummm, I may not be great at geography but I know enough to say that we live nowhere near any ocean! I have not seen any whales swimming around in Pine View or The Great Salt Lake. You are in the wrong state if you are into hunting whales. Plus, who would do that? What have whales ever done to you? I don't know why this law was established, in this state especially, but I guess it was for a good cause. For all you whale lovers out there, wrong state. If you want to read more about some of these....well, interesting laws, Google "dumb laws" and laugh at our state and others for their laws.

Our weird laws

Megan Wehrman Staff Reporter Utah is an interesting, strange, funny little state. We have our own holidays and own little quirks about us, but there is one thing that would have me a little confused if I happened to vacation here. Our laws. Laws are good and keep everything in check, but you have to wonder why some laws were even created? I know I have. For example, it is illegal to not drink milk. My first response was, "WHAT?" What happened to make that a law? Who decided to revolt against milk? I mean, does it matter? Some people like milk, some people don't. It doesn't matter. It's not like a life and death situation. You don't hear about it on the news, "Girl dies from not drinking milk!" or "Boy falls off bike because he didn't drink milk!" It's not a crisis. In Salt Lake City, it is illegal to walk down the street carrying a paper bag that contains a violin. What exactly happened there? I guess it could be used as a weapon, but seriously? Did someone decide to play the violin to protest against something? Sometimes you have to wonder. In Provo, throwing a snowball results in a $50 fine. This is one law that is half stupid and half almost understandable. Snowballs can hurt people and objects. There may be rocks in them that could hurt a child or dent a car but why would you charge a kid $50 for having a snowball fight? I could understand a 50 cent fine but not a $50. In Trout Creek, south western Utah, it is illegal for a pharmacist to sell gunpowder to cure headaches. This is common sense. Gunpowder is not aspirin. I want to know what kind of person would actually try this and what pharmacist would actually sell it. I can see the slogan already, "Normal people use Aspirin, but I use Gunpowder." I'm not sure if I should laugh or stick whoever tried this back in second grade. You all remember the little jingle from Sesame Street? It had two kids with a hoola hoop and one bouncing a ball? This is the same thing. "Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Gunpowder. One of these things just doesn't belong here." Here's another one that's a little, okay, really disturbing. When a person reaches

Haunted Houses: Take a peek

Kayla McCloskey Features Editor A group of teenagers walk up to the ticket booth, pay to get in and laugh with each other as they stand in line. They tease one girl or one guy who acts tough and isn't scared, then they give the undertaker their tickets to rip. They slowly go into the creepy dungeon, down the dank, dark cave hearing strange noises and screams of terror. The group cuddles closer as they walk toward the dim lighting at the end of the tunnel. The screams stop; no one speaks. As they walk toward the door, it slams open and a mad scientist screams at them as they cringe in fear. Now freeze, let's look at this mad scientist. He has a knife in hand, his hands, lab coat, and pants are covered in blood, his face splattered and his eyes blacked out. Using the dim light to make himself more threatening, he looks at the group, his eyes crazy, and his voice deep. Now take away the lab coat, the blood, and the knife. He could be any regular Joe walking through the halls of the school. E x cept this certain mad scientist happens to be Eli Sorensen, a veteran worker in haunted houses. Who works at a haunted house and what kind of person is he? Actually, anyone can work for a haunted house. Put anyone in a mask and bloody clothes and teach them to growl and you have a monster. It does take a little skill, however, to really set fear into the hearts of the people who walk through a haunted house. Those are the select few workers. They have timing, acting skills, and an ability to think out of the box. Workers at the haunted houses dress up as vampires, werewolves, mental patients, and clowns with gallons and gallons of fake blood. Even in our own school many students work at the local haunted houses in our area. They look normal at school or mostly normal, but come October they seem a little different. The workers of a haunted house have to take on roles every night. They have to be the witch in a little shack, or a vampire living in coffins. They need to adopt these roles and become them. If they are given the role of a back country hick they have to talk like one. You can't say stuff like "yo" and "what's up" if you're a back country hick, can you? Plus, one night a worker can be a victim being killed and the next night a vampire with a slinky voice. Do these actors stay in character all night? Back to Eli the scientist, he wasn't alone in that room, he had someone else. That is his victim who screams and pleads for mercy. That would be me; I scream for help, give warnings, or just twitch violently. Do we, the workers of the haunted house just sit there in character all night long or do we chit chat or pull pranks? What customers don't see are the real people behind the masks, who are mostly high school students or fresh out of high school teenagers. Of course, if you leave high school teenagers in rooms with props that move while making noises, and alone with an occasional security guard to walk through, and anything can happen. What do these kids do exactly? Talk mostly; get to know the person or people they've been partnered with. They joke around over the last group that come through, or try to figure a way past motion sensors without setting them off. Mostly it is like telling stories over a camp fire, older workers telling their past experiences to new workers. Some stories you hear from the workers are very funny, some stories make the listener wince and others you're just wondering if it's the truth. Actors try things out of the box that work or don't. I cannot explain how many stories I've heard about falling over--off trees, from stilts, out of a truck and just over their own feet. It's the real actors who get up from their fall and then keep going. Once the costumers leave and get out of ear shot you curse, stand up, and limp back to your spot as you laugh. Falls aren't the only things actors seem to accomplish; no, they sometimes commit really epic blunders. They run into walls in their own maze, a vampire gets stuck in their coffin, or they break something

Ghosts:

Danielle Santistevan-Minnick Staff Reporter

Do they really exist or not?

school has nine ghosts. Sounds even creepier, right? That's many ghosts in the same neighborhood. Teachers have said that they can hear children playing in the auditorium after school. Some feel cold chills and other strange activities. One of the ghosts, said to be a student, seems to walk back and forth from Roy High to Sand Ridge Junior High. These ghosts were in mostly car accidents many years back. According to stories, one boy was hit by a moving train while riding his bike. They were all young children. Why have they decided to stick around this junior high? No one really knows. No teachers or students have seen the ghosts roaming around the schools, but they have heard them. One story tells of a Roy Junior High student who in 1980 died on the table saw in his woodshop class. His spirit, according to the story, is still in that room. The school replaced the saw, of course, and the replacement saw is in the same spot as in 1980. They say that some days while class is in session the saw will turn on by itself and it will get jammed, and you can hear screams after that. Lots of stories tell of ghosts in our schools. You can believe the stories or not.

while customers are in their area. A few stories I know all started with the phrase, "Oh, what does this switch do?" and the next thing you hear this ominous sound of the power going down. You're now sitting in total darkness, and the first thing that pops into your head is, "I'm so fired." Everything is soon fixed and the guy who touched the switch will and has yet to live that down. Another story is about girls, stuck in one area a ways from everyone else who can barely move without setting off some kind of machine. So they just randomly start to dance. Do these girls realize there is a road right next to them. No, they don't, until out of nowhere they hearing honking and both turn bright red and duck. Those are some things customers don't see, but what about some of those people who walk through the haunted houses? Some customers are great; they scare easily but laugh just as easily. Then you get the macho ones. One unexpected scare has them screaming and running like girls as their dates stare at them. Then there is the group that uses the dreaded cell phone for light. These little devices are not helpful at all for the actors; this little light destroys the scary effect. Then there are the drunks, the ones who come later at night after partying and they are the real entertainment for us workers. There are times where the arm's length rule for drunks doesn't seem to work. If you call for help as part of your act, they will believe you and sadly they will try to save you. It's quite an experience having a drunk woman cry and pull on your arm until finally security comes through. Haunted houses are a lot of fun, not only for the customers but for the workers as well.

In Utah there have been lots of myths of haunted places. Some say that Roy High School is haunted. According to legend, there are four ghost, three girls and one boy. Some teachers and students say that mysterious things have happened to them. Kids at Roy high say creepy things have happened to them while they are in the hall alone. One ghost named Mabel likes to play tricks on kids in the auditorium. Some say that if you are alone walking through the halls, you can feel someone staring at you. Where did these ghost come from and why they are at Roy High? You may be thinking ghost aren't even real, but there's thousands, maybe millions, of ghost stories and some people believe them. Ashley Strong, English teacher, has told her students some of her experiences with ghosts. She says lights have turned off mysteriously on their own and doors have opened and closed with no one around.These ghosts haven't harmed anyone; they just seem to like to scare people. At Sand Ridge Junior High teachers have stories about hauntings also. Apparently this

Stereotypes; Positives

Kiersten Voorhees Editor-in-chief "All Stereotypes turn out to be true. This is a horrifying thing about life. All those things you fought against as a youth; you begin to realize they're stereotypes because they're true." - David Cronenberg. French have bad teeth and armpit hair, English are rude and Americans fat. California is where all the stars are, Georgia has amazing peaches and Utah is full of Mormons. Park city is rich, Hooper is full of hicks and Roy is near (or in) the ghetto. Well I'm sure there's French people who have great smiles, some extremely nice English citizens and there are some dang skinny Americans. We all know that Utah isn't ALL Mormons and that Roy is a great place to live and has some extremely nice neighborhoods. Everyone stereotypes, regardless if they're aware of it or not. Stereotypes are there because a majority of them turn out to be true, these judgements of people (or places) are for our protection and well being. Although we have always been taught to not judge, it's impossible and frankly necessary to judge people by the way they look, dress and act. Let's say you're going to a new school, you don't know anyone. What are you going to do to find the friends that you would usually hang out with? You're going to look for people that act and dress along the same lines as you. If you're into school and the designer clothes, you aren't going to go straight and talk to kids with long hair, tight jeans and gages. And same with the kids looking at you, the new kid in school, if you look like you don't come close to belonging in their stereotype, most likely they aren't going to be talking to you. Even grocery shopping applies. Imagine you're driving along and see a new local grocer that just opened in Ogden, but the building looks run down and as if mice would be crawling around everywhere. Well I guess it could be the nicest place you've ever shopped, but in this case the stereotype you gave it, would most likely apply perfectly. If we didn't have stereotypes it could cause a lot of unnecessary trouble. People look how they act and we need to be aware of that. Now there is some of you that will fight to the death that people don't always fit the stereotype, and I agree with that completely. I've met multiple people where if I didn't talk to them I would judge them unfairly. But unfortunately those people aren't a dime a dozen. You have to get to know the person and figure out for yourself, and sometimes you don't have the time to get to know the guy with long hair and a beard sitting on the side of the road. Now I'm not telling you to go out and judge everyone and if they don't look like someone you like to ignore them. But stereotypes are there for our safety and concern, they exist for a reason.

Stereotypes; Negatives

Amanda Bay Opinions Editor Have you ever looked at someone and right off put them into a group based off of what they were wearing, who they were with or even how they talked? Of course you have. We are all guilty of doing it a time or two. It's a part of human nature, but have you ever thought about the other side; about how it makes the other person feel? Stereotyping is what this is called, and it is bad. There is nothing good about someone looking at you and deciding that you are a "geek" or "preppy". I understand that stereotyping is apart of high school but some people take it to a new extreme and that is where all of the problems come from. I don't see just because we don't understand someone, we have to put them into a group. It's offensive to people and can make someone feel not wanted. I know as a junior in high school it is hard enough to fit in without the stress of being stereotyped and feeling that we have to be apart of a group. It seems like there is no such thing as individuality anymore, if you don't claim a group then you will be forced into one by your' peers. To me that doesn't seem very fair. Many think that just because a majority of people stereotype themselves that it is okay to stereotype the rest, but those people couldn't be more wrong. What happens when someone just wants to be themselves, not "belong" to any type of group? Do they not get a say in it? Does it even matter? I'm thinking that no one really considers the other persons feelings when they put them into a group. I have even heard people that are on teams such as the Royalties, Cheerleaders, and even the step team. You hear it all the time; they are stuck up, which is not true. In fact I have found them to be some of the nicest people. Then there's the Football players, basketball, etc. You will hear that they are anything but what they really are, and I don't see that to be fair. In my opinion you have to get to know someone before you pass judgment on them, and don't listen to the crowd, because they could be the complete opposite. Stereotyping is a bad thing and only makes people not want to be around you. I have lost a lot of friendships because of this, and as a high school student it's a hard thing to do, or not to do, you really have to sit and think, "would I want someone to do this to me, or would I want people to think this way about me even before getting to know their name?" Stereotyping can cause serious problems with someone's head, it makes things hard, makes them think that they need to meet certain standards in order to be accepted or to be liked. We as a group need to watch what we say and the way that we say it. The things that we do can make a major impact on someone's life so think before you speak and think, "Would I want feel like I don't belong?"

makeup and your hair not done is your worst nightmare

-Inside jokes -Band camp -Nerdy

Mostly C's: The Nerd. You are all about getting good grades. High school is not for

socializing, it is strictly for learning and being the smartest.

Mostly D's: Drama/Band Geeks. If there is a school play or concert, people can definitely

find you there. You like to bring out your creative side and being the star on the stage.

Mostly E's: No Stereotype. You don't fit into any particular stereotype. You have either

spread yourself out in various aspects of high school, or have simply not cared to find a certain clique to follow.

Change your stereotypical mindset

Kiersten Voorhees Editor-in-chief Pulling up to any high school you are faced with an inevitable situation, something every student at every high school has to face. It's a situation you can't control, something you can't run or hide from. People are watching, and every move you take can make or break you. Would you believe that this situation is simply be walking through the high school? You are worried about how your hair looks, what you're wearing and even how you're walking because you know for certain that people you don't even know are judging when their eyes scan across you. Well believe it or not, no matter how much you hate it, you are guilty of the same crime. Stereotyping is a basic human trait. All of us have looked at the kid with long hair and tight pants and thought skater, or the girl in the cheerleader uniform and instantly assume she's a ditz. Of course maybe that kid in skinny jeans could be a star athlete or the cheerleader a 4.0 student. I'd like to believe that people stereotype because they don't have enough time to get to know every single person so we go off basic things such as how people look to judge their character. The trouble with this stereotyping is how much is it affecting us as fellow classmates? Are we really a school like East High in "High School Musical" where Troy Bolton is telling us that "we're all in this together" and to forget the status quo? Or are we more along the lines of "Mean Girls" where the plastics run the school and decide who is cool and who's not? As we're rising again in 2010, why don't we do it together? Give a smile to a stranger, talk to someone who you normally wouldn't, and while we ourselves are rising, we can bring everyone up with us. This is our opportunity to make a change, our chance to have little acts of kindness count. Let's take advantage and rise together. This is our year, Royals.

Roleplaying:

Elyse Reid Staff Reporter We all get tired of being ourselves from time to time. Saying "Hi, I'm Benjamin Davis," all the time gets repetitive and old. Sometimes, being Susan Miller just doesn't cut it anymore. I have a solution. Become an all new person, travel to exotic lands and meet interesting friends. Impossible, you say. Oh, but it is possible, with the art of roleplaying. It's not all about Dungeons & Dragons and pocket protectors; it's about letting go of your preconceived notions of yourself and discovering the hidden identity within you. "It's fun, and passes the time. It's a life I'd like to live," says Kirsten Brown, a Roy High senior. She goes by the identity of Minkotsu Sanochae for her roleplays. While there are many different forms of roleplay, today I will cover the text-based kind. The first step to being a roleplayer is creating a character. The great thing about your character is that they can be anyone. They don't have to resemble you in any way, whatsoever. For example, one of my characters is Kasumi Yuzuki, a young women with short black hair and green eyes, whereas I have brown hair and brown eyes. Next you must develop your character's personality. Will they be confident? Or maybe shy? Don't forget likes and dislikes. The more depth to your character you add, the more realistic your Roleplay experience will become. Now you need to find a website forum where you can show off your new character and gain experience. There are thousands of forums, Roleplaygateway.com, and Roleplayzone.com being just a few. Genres of forums include horror, comedy, romance, and action--basically anything that your imagination can create. Once you have a forum that meets your desire you need to do an intro. There are two types: listed or paragraphed. Here is an example of listed intro: Name: Kasumi Yuzuki

Use your imagination to unleash your inner self

Tynisha Lutz and Elyse Reid used art they found on the internet to represent their roleplay characters, Airi-3 (left) and Kasumi Yuzuki (below).

Gender: Female Age: 17 Race: (only if Roleplay includes elves, demons etc. is this info needed): Human Appearance: Short black hair with lots of layers and jade green eyes. She wears a black belly shirt and black skirt. She has fishnets around her elbows and knee-high combat boots. Weapons: Dual Katana Personality: Kasumi is very sarcastic and has no problem expressing her opinions. She takes her duties very seriously, especially taking care of her friends and family. Here is an example of paragraphed intro: "The moon shone brightly as Kasumi Yuzuki snuck through the town, her black hair flowing behind her when she ran. Her black shirt and skirt allowed her to blend into the night's shadows easily. Her jade green eyes flashed and darted as she examined her surroundings." Once you post your opening entry, other roleplayers can begin interacting with your character and the story develops. While roleplaying, there are just a few guidelines to keep in mind. Refrain from chatspeaking as often as possible; using 4 and U over a text message is fine, but in roleplay, it's the sign of a newbie. Stay literate--it's best to include 3-6 lines per post; it helps keep things going. Don't be a godmoder, a term used for people whose character is completely perfect. Everyone has flaws, and this should apply to your character too. And always follow the rules set by the creator of the roleplay. If they say "no swearing," then obey them and keep the profanity to yourself. Once you become roleplayer, you can make lasting friendships. "I made some great friends roleplaying, and they are still friends," says Valerie Nordstrom, also known as Rin Kurosawa by her roleplay pals. Roleplaying gives you a chance to reach

out to the farthest corner of the world. "I like that you can roleplay with people all over the world," comments Tynisha Lutz, or Ellzmaria the Fallen. So to all the Benjamin Davises and Sally Millers out there, I encourage you to unleash the potential of the warlock and elf huntress within you.

Overkill murders `Twilight' fan's enthusiasm

Angela Allred Sports Editor I used to love the "Twilight" Saga, and I mean I really loved it, posters on my walls, shirts that say "Team Edward" and exhaustion at school from seeing the movie the night it premiered. Now every day I am bombarded with everything "Twilight." Maybe it has always been this way, and I was just under an Edward spell, but now I find myself wondering if this book is worth it. If I even mention that I like any of the "Twilight" books someone has to tell me every reason they hate them. I feel like there is an actual "Twilight" war going on. I have to drop on the ground and expect the unexpected if I say I am excited for the sequel to "Twilight," "New Moon," to come to theaters. Now when I hear someone talking about "Twilight" instead of yelling, "I love `Twilight'... I love Edward!" I just keep it to myself rather than making myself a known fan. This made me think, if a less known book that I absolutely loved became extremely popular enough to alter the world like the "Twilight" saga, would I abandon it? With the "Twilight" books being made into movies it has really taken the light off the Anna says, "The books are beautiful and imaginations are more vivid and amazing than any film created in this saga." Summit Entertainment, the production company that produces "Twilight" has stripped this book of everything I loved it for. These producers and Hollywood stars care about one thing... getting paid, and this phenomenon is a sure fire hit, so why not right? "I don't like how it is so popular; it really made me not like it as much... now when I reread the `Twilight' books I see Robert Pattinson and Kristin Stewart instead of the characters I imagined before I'd seen the movies," says Lexi Loftus, a senior. This is exactly how I feel. It isn't my "Twilight" anymore; it is Hollywood's "Twilight." Their "Twilight" movies include anything and everything that will make more money. For example, the first movie has a scene with Edward and Bella kissing... of course Hollywood had to add this in to sell the movie to the people who weren't diehard fans. This scene did not occur in the original "Twilight" book. So I guess you could say that I am a sort of "Twilight" fan, but I'll never be as loyal to the movies as I am to the fantastic books Stephenie Meyer's brilliant mind made.

Sweat dripping down their foreheads and their bodies aching, they push to the end, because as they say, "Nothing is ever worth giving up." Their name is Blood of Saints, and they are a hardcore metal rock band. This is a regular occurrence for them, each and every time that they get up on that stage; they play like it is their first and their last. If you have ever seen them you would know that the saying, "They are playing their little hearts out," does not apply to them, for the simple fact that, they have anything but little hearts.

with new albums

Ryan Miller Entertainment Editor From the alternative sound of the Muse to new hip hopping beats of Sean "Diddy" Combs, artists are releasing CDs, coming soon this season to stores near you. These are just two of the several new or upcoming CDs new to the fall season. If you aren't the biggest hip hop fan or dislike the electronic sensation of the Muse, here are some other bands that you might be interested in. Say Anything, Weezer, Train, Carrie Underwood, Lil Wayne, and Breaking Benjamin are all releasing CDs in the 2009 season. Say Anything is a punk rock band that has an indie twist to it. The singer sounds like the singer from American Rejects but they are little more hard rock. Their music has a different message than the American Rejects. Instead of writing about moving along and about how you used to love a girl, they are more toward the drug scene and humor of the darker side of life, but in a happy peppy type of way. Some of the members are Jewish and one of their earlier albums also has some concepts on World War II and the Holocaust. Weezer is more popular in the music scene than Say Anything. Some of their biggest hits were "Island in the Sun," "Undone" (sweater song), and "Say it ain't so." "Say it ain't so" was featured in Guitar Hero. If you have never heard of Weezer, you need to get out a little more because they have six full length albums out. Their singer is named River Cuomo and he has some singles out that he made by himself. Next time you're on iTunes, look them up. Train is a `90s band that is rock and contemporary. They have a sound a little like Journey but not as old school. They have had eight of their 20 songs on the billboard list. Their songs have some hippie concepts, but still really catchy. If you like a good piano

solo, then this a band for you, so when their CD comes out, take a chance on it. Carrie Underwood is from one of the most popular reality shows ever created, "Ameri." can Idol". She won the title in the fourth season. I'm not the biggest country fan, but from what I know a lot of country fans like her. She has won awards stthe CMAs and other country award s h o w s . Underwood has also hosted some award shows as well such as AMA, ACM and the People's Choice Awards. She has performed over 150 shows with Kenny Chesney and Brad Paisley. LiL Wayne, who also has a new CD out, is an American Grammy award-winning rapper. He grew up in New Orleans and started making raps on his answering machine. When he was 14 he dropped out of school and started bad habits like smoking weed and drinking, but now he is a famous rapper. His last album got eight Grammy award nominations. Breaking Benjamin is alternative metal band. If you know Three Days Grace or Finger Eleven, they sound similar to them with a harsher sound. Most people have heard their song "The Diary of Jane" or "I Will Not Bow" which is their most recent song. Their songs have been heard about almost everywhere from the Halo 2 game to "Step Up 2" the movie all the way to "National Treasure." They have released three albums so far but they have two more to go with Hollywood Records as part of their record deal. All of these artists have their albums coming out either in early September to late December. There are other artists with albums coming out like Boston, Michael Buble, + 44, and Angels and Airwaves and many more. Most of these band have some singles out from their albums so you can preview it before it comes out.

Royals need more school spirit

Kelsey Smith Staff Reporter Every fall hundreds of students and adults alike gather together on cold, hard bleachers, every Friday night to watch high school boys in 25 pounds of pads run back and forth on a one hundred yard football field. With their faces painted and school t-shirts on, fans cheer on the football team hoping to help lead them to success. Every Tuesday and Thursday the girls soccer team, the girls tennis team, and the girls volleyball team play their hearts out in front of less than a hundred people hoping to get a few cheers if they do something absolutely phenomenal. Not only do some sports here at Roy High lack in support from fans but the band, choir, drama, and Improv also scrape for people supporting them. In the last few years all of these programs have been successful and yet haven't gotten the support that they not only deserve but have earned. Last year our own girls softball team took first in region and then later first in state and yet they didn't get a good turn-out of fans until the actual championship game, if that had been a football game, or a boys basketball game, there would have been at least triple the amount of fans for the first game in state, who knows how many they would have had if they were in the championship game. The softball team did actually end up getting a lot of recognition, after they took state. Before they won the actual championship game they had no more fans than any other regular season game. People use the excuse that they don't want to go and watch a team lose night after night, or some people simply go for the social aspect. Think of if we had the hundreds of fans that we have at football games for every sport game, and every performance or production, our school would be so much more successful. Not only would we be more successful but we would earn the reputation that our school has the most school spirit, not only in the district but possibly the whole state. Most people who play sports would agree that it is not only more fun but easier to do their best with the crowd behind them cheering them on. Our school has the talent to succeed in these sports we just need the confidence so that we can do our best, and that confidence comes from the cheering of the fans. Ultimately we need to remember that we are all competing for Roy High; all the games, and the productions, and performances are for Roy High. We need to support everything that Roy High does and have the school spirit that leads out school to victory.

All activities considered sports

Melissa Hobbs Staff Reporter I had an interesting conversation with a fellow student the other day. The question was brought up, what is considered a sport? His comment was a sport is only a sport when teams are working together to score. He then went on to say swimming, track, golf, and dance were not considered sports. Then I thought if those aren't considered sports then are the Olympics not a sporting event? Following that I asked fellow swim team member Kelsie Wahlstrom why she considered swimming a sport. She said just because we don't come in contact with other people, like football, doesn't mean it's not a sport. Swimmers use every single muscle in their bodies. It is one of the most difficult sports. Swimming also takes team work. All of our times put together determine the score. Just like in other team sports if the quarterback throws crappy then it affects the final score. We are competing against other teams, and in the end somebody loses, and somebody wins. Just like in football, baseball, and basketball. Somer Gagnon who used to run track in Jr. High was asked why she considered it a sport. She says they practice as a team, and compete against other teams. Each individuals time adds up together to make the final outcome. So if someone doesn't do very well it affects the entire team. Sophomore Emily Osborn tells why she thinks dance is a sport. "You have to hit the counts as a team. If one person misses a count, it messes up the entire routine. So dance is very much a team sport. So if somebody is saying they only consider a sport something that you're doing as a team, and then saying dance is not a team sport, they are very much mistaken. Rachel Call, a sophmore says, "a sport is only a sport when you are running around a court/field with the team scoring points. Anything else is just competition". The dictionary definition of a sport is an active diversion requiring physical exertion and competition. So my thought is if the dictionary definition says a sport is a competition then how does her opinion make any sense? For this class mate who thinks swimming is not a sport, let's look at Michael Phelps work-out routine. Phelps trains for six hours a day, six days a week, without fail. Even if Christmas day falls on a training day, he does a full day of training. Total dedication to his training program has made him a world champion. He swims approximately 50 miles (80km) each week, which is over 8 miles per training day. He has two massages everyday and also takes ice baths to help his body recover. If somebody went up to Michael Phelps and told him swimming was not a sport he would probably punch them in the face. There is no way someone who works that hard 6 days a week is not doing a sport. What is your opinion? I would like to know about it.

It's freezing and the fear is welding up more than you want. Only a few more seconds till you jump out of the plane. A few comforts that somewhat calm you down such as the parachute on your back and the fact that you aren't jumping out by yourself. Your team stands by your side as you all jump out and then all your fears disperse with the challenge to accomplish your routine. As you and your teammates get close enough to each other, you grab each other's hands and start to form your intended shape. A few touch ups here and there and the BAM! Your bodies as perfectly positioned as close to perfect as possible; you have created a star. Another success for your extreme skydiving team. Extreme skydiving is a new addition to skydiving. Many people would probably point out the fact that skydiving in general is pretty extreme. So how much different it is extreme skydiving compared to just skydiving? How extreme is extreme? Extreme skydiving is not too much different or too much more extreme than typical skydiving. The brave skydivers had realized over time that just plain old jumping out of a plane became boring. They thought it to be rather bored and predictable. They lost their thrill in this grand sport. As you read deeper into how extreme skydiving works I found that it's not too much different from the typical skydiving. It does have more of an intense edge to it don't get me wrong it definitely is true to its name. The more extreme thrills they added to sky-

diving are things such as videotaping their jumps with multiple cameras to capture the intensity of the fall. They found when they later viewed it from the different angles that it more intense looking and more extreme looking. Even just videotaping their fall wasn't enough, they added tricks. They would perform a range of acrobatic moves and such during their free falling time. They even came up with the idea to do tricks with in a group. They created teams to perform together such as making star shapes with their bodies and other such designed patterns. Jumping out of a plane and free falling is completely amazing itself but imagine jumping out of the plane with multiple people. With a camera strapped to you and with the routine going over in your mind. The intensity of pulling off the routine in the air only having a limited amount of time. With all that on your mind already you still have to remember to give yourself the time to pull the cord so that you can land safely and injury free on the inviting ground underneath you. The thrill I got just from watching the extreme skydiving videos on Youtube made me want to go out and jump out of a plane myself. The intensity and the amount of fun they were having, I greatly wanted it too. It does sound quite frightening and scary but at the same time it's something you can't help wanting to picture yourself jumping out of a huge plane into the sky and doing what the extreme skydivers do and make every bit of the adventure more thrilling and complicated. Makes you ask yourself, can you handle the challenge?

College BCS needs a different system

Jeff Brinton Staff Reporter I don't know why college football uses the bowl championship series. Why don't they have a playoff system like in every other sport? Smaller schools don't get the chance to play in these bowls because they don't play against the so called good teams that are in the standings every year. Why can't you give them the chance to show what they can or can't do. What about Utah university they went undefeated and still couldn't get into the national championship because of the bias of the BCS. Don't get me wrong about being bias because I don't like the Utes because I'm a BYU fan. I give Utah credit for going that far, look at the bowl game they played against Alabama. Alabama was number one for most of the year in the BCS standings and the Utes beat them 3117. I hear people say, `Was last year a fluke?' "No, last year was what it was -- a great season," said Coach Whittingham. This year's season just started and BYU got to play Oklahoma. Oklahoma was ranked number three and BYU was ranked 20th. BYU beat them 14-13 and people say that was because of the injury to last year's Heisman winner Sam Bradford. Bradford is a good quarter back but he only had 96 passing yards. Before he went down. BYU didn't play their best game either. I'm tired of hearing about all the big schools and how good they are. It's so boring to watch college football because they only televise those teams that are in the top of the BCS. Look at Oklahoma last year they were bowing teams out of the water and then, they lose to Texas a pretty good team and in the BCS rankings. "In the end, there are arguments for and against all the teams, but if Bob Stoops you can't rank us ahead of Texas, then you've got to leave Tech ahead of Texas," Oklahoma coach said. Texas doesn't get to go in the national championship game because they lost to Texas Tech. "In 2004, I was criticized for saying I thought our team was good enough to be in a BCS game and, my gosh, I was [called] a politician and a whiner," Texas coach Mack Brown said. It seems like all they can talk about is how good teams are in the east, and how there conferences are so good, and the teams in them are good. Why they can't have the top eight teams in the nation play in a playoff system now not all the teams could go I say they can still have those bowl games for the teams in the top eight but I think that it's stupid to only give two teams every year have a chance to be called the best in the nation, why cant eight?

Roy High goes 5A

Shane Olney Staff Reporter Friday nights under the lights are always a crazy place to be, the band playing, and the crowd cheering like the men in pads are their favorite rock stars. The adrenaline is the same, though the opponents have changed. Since Roy High was established in 1965 they've played 4-A football. Their region included Box Elder, Woods Cross, Sky View, Mountain Crest, and our rival Bonneville. In this region we've won state championships and region championships. This year Roy High made the switch many were convinced was going to happen. Seven students over the 4-A limit, we moved to 5-A. We're now in the region of Layton, Northridge, Clearfield, Fremont, Weber, Viewmont, and Davis, arguably the toughest region in the state of Utah. With a change like this there's always the question, is this really the right year? Roy's defensive coordinator Coach Hess says, "Yes, it was the right year. If you try and analyze it, you'll never find the perfect year to make the switch. You need to pick a year and go with it." There are many differences from 4-A to 5A, the biggest is the size and the depth of our opponents. This year Davis High has 100 sophomores playing for them. To give you a comparison, Roy had 23 sophomore players last year, and is playing J.V. games with as few as 21 active players. We may not have the numbers Davis has, but we do have one of the largest teams we've had in several years. Many times a change like this intimidates the players and even the coaches, but not Roy High. "The switch really inspired the players; it makes them play harder and want to prove the critics wrong," Coach Hess said confidently. Middle line backer, Cody Wimmer said, "There's really no difference from 4-A to 5-A, Kick offs at seven." Alan Khou defensive back for the Royals, says, "They're bigger, and faster and a whole lot more cocky." Some people are convinced 4-A is harder than 5-A. In 4-A you have power houses such as the Timpview Thunderbirds who before this pre-season had gone three years without a single loss, three consecutive state championships. Then in 5-A there's Bingham High who recently went down to Texas and played Trinity High School who is fifth in the nation and put up a fight with a score of 42-21. Roy Captain Austin Seabolt can't say who is harder. "Depends on who ya play," he said. In the end it's best said by Couch Hess who when asked if he'd rather play 4-A or 5-A in the playoffs said, "5-A if you want to be the best you got to play the best." At the end of the day the change is really in the mindset of the players on the field. True, the opponent may have more players, may be faster and stronger, and maybe even have more money than Roy, but kickoff is still at seven o'clock, you play on a green field that is 100 yards long and 50 yards wide, and we still wear black and gold. "Football is football," Hess said. True, it's the same game, but the switch does add adrenaline to the games, and the team seems to have a lot more intensity on the field. The opponents have changed, but the emotion hasn't. There are more important things to worry about when walking onto the football field in front of hundreds of screaming fans. "God and family," is what Khou replied with when asked what the last thing he thinks about before hitting the field. As you can see, nothing to do with the people standing across from him, just the things in life that matter the most.

Disk Golf:

Joy Hudspeth Staff Reporter I am sure you have heard of Frisbee or golf but most have not heard of the game, disk golf. It is very similar to regular golf, but with a Frisbee-like disk. Instead of a small hole in the short cut grass, you throw the disk into a pole hole basket, a steel basket from which chains hang. There are different types of discs used for different purposes, much like ball golfers use different clubs. Most disc golf courses have between 18 or 24 baskets and generally vary from 150 and 500 feet apart. The courses are usually located at municipal parks. "The best part is there is no charge in a fresh environment," Star Newton said. There are disc golf courses at many Utah parks and people usually don't even realize it. The most popular course located around here is the Weber River Park. There is also one at Creekside Park in Salt Lake City. The player begins from the starting area and continues to get closer and closer to the target, throwing each consecutive shot from the spot the previous throw has landed. At last, a successful putt (basically a toss into the basket) sends the disc into the target. "Hearing the chains jingle is the most satisfying sound playing disc golf," Shane Hudspeth, a former Royal, explains. "Steady Ed" Headrick founded the term "disc golf" and created the first formal disc

It's a new take on an old favorite

golf target with chains and a basket. He created the very first disc golf course at Oak Grove Park in Pasadena, California. Headrick also formed the first disc golf association, the PDGA. This association now indicates the standard rules to play the sport. Disc golf has been growing for the past decade, with nearly 3,000 courses in the US. The sport is now played in over 40 countries worldwide. Disc golf associations try to strongly encourage women to play disc golf too, so they arrange separate women's tournaments. Many companies have created programs to attract women to the sport, such as Disc-Diva, a company that focuses on women in the sport. They have promoted accessories geared toward women and use catch phrases like, "You wish you threw like a girl." I was introduced to this sport from my siblings, who first played it in California. It is not the most popular sport here in Utah, but I see it growing as I go to the disc golf course and see many new faces trying it out. "I think it would be cool to start disc golf teams in schools," said Justin Mefford, a continuous player. I personally love disc golf and highly recommend everyone to try it. All you have to do is get a disc or two (starting at only $5) and go to a course, for free. It is relaxing, fun, and a great, different way to get exercise.

The United States is not yet one of the best teams in the world, but they can beat the best teams in the world on good days. Regarding the MLS, it is unfortunately a little different. Even if some clubs, such as LA Galaxy, have been able to sign a top transfer like David Beckham, the general level can`t be compared to the European top leagues. The main problem might be the same one as we have got in German club soccer as well-the big three leagues (England, Spain and Italy) simply have got more money to spend than we have. Compared to these leagues, it is difficult and almost impossible to break the trend and get closer to them. The main goal should be stopping the fall down. Compared to all the other European leagues, the MLS has got another problem: There is no real international competition. No yearly establishment that can be compared to the Champions League is a disadvantage. There is no money for television rights and no extra ticket sales, and all this ends up re-emphasizing point that was already mentioned: The money, or rather the money that is not there. We can give you, our American friends, the advice to keep mentally strong and make the way US soccer is supposed to go. Keep on thinking positive, start up a certain "soccer area" in your community`s mind and everything will be fine. You are on a great path.
