Horror season: Old vs. New

Amber Weller, Staff Reporter

October 29, 2015

As Halloween approaches, the debate rages about whether the oldies remain the best or whether their newer counterparts have surpassed them. Many students here at RHS voiced their opinions about their favorite horror movies. It seems that support is split down the middle. The most important thing this horror movie season is finding the best one that sends chills down your spine and makes your heart race....

It is officially fall. We commemorate our old friend, summer, and parade into the new season, fall.  As much as the sun warmed us this summer, it is now time for day-time savings and other fall related activities. Even though some loathe seeing school start and summer end, there are a couple good reasons to look forward to the new season. Pumpkin spice Okay, this may be a little stereotypical, but pumpkin spice. If you ever walked into a coffee shop in fall, you have probably already smelled this heavenly creation.  It is absolutely everywhere!  Even though some ...

The Detroit Lions will never be champs

May 9, 2015

The NFL’s Detroit Lions are a historic, or lack-thereof, franchise with no championship appearance since the 1950s. This means that since the NFL renamed its title game, The Super Bowl, the Lions have never even made a cameo. Fast forward to the new decade of the 2010s and the supposed new age for football in Detroit, where the Lions made it to their first playoff game since Barry Sanders was in uniform. They had ten wins in 2011 when just three years prior, they had none. Despite making it, they got destroyed by the recent champion, New Orleans Saints. For the next two...

Comic book movies continue popular trend

Troy Frank, Sports Editor

April 30, 2015

There are a total of 25 superhero movies between May 2015 and Dec. 2020 that will show everyone how great it is to be a comic book nerd. For starters, there is a little film you may have heard of called Avengers: Age of Ultron. Many are predicting this movie to bank over 200 million dollars in its opening much like its predecessor, The Avengers (2012). Why? Because Marvel Studios, which produces this film and others related to it like Iron Man (2008) and Thor (2011), has a track record of making good movies for all audiences. If you are a movie fan or comic book nerd, you should be super excited, no pun intended, for the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. DC Comics and Warner Brothers have followed in Marvel’s footsteps and have launched their own “Cinematic Universe” in which ...

May, June movie preview

Troy Frank, Sports Editor

April 29, 2015

This summer has many great projects set to release that a $200 million dollar movie should not be considered a blockbuster. Instead, a $500 million movie should now be the minimum. Do not believe me? Look at Furious 7. In its first two weekends it has hit $250 million at the box office and that is just a mindless popcorn movie. So let us check out what this summer has in store for us. Disclaimer, not all of the movies will be covered; just the ones that have created buzz since the announcement of their release dates.   May 15 Pitch Perfect 2 In the sequel to 2012’s hit, Pitch Perfect, the Barden Bellas enter into a singing competition that no American team has ever won before. Directed by Elizebeth Banks. Starring Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Alexis Snapp, and Anna Camp. ...

Does society define you?

Jalissa Long-Jolley, Journalism Student

March 31, 2015

There is no debate in the fact that society will always play a major role in everyone’s life.  It affects everything from our appearance and social status, to how we perceive others. Society helps us decide who we will become in our future and what is most important.   Although everyone practically lives with these ideas society places into our heads, is its impact in our lives really positive, or are we feeding our minds with poison? Are we judging people off of their hearts, or because they look and dress like that famous model everyone else adores? Society has pushed us passed the point of having respect for ourselves and others, and has fed us a scenario that we should say and do anything to become a certain way. There is absolutely no victim. It is your choice to either...

22.7 percent. According to the 2013 United States Census Bureau, 22.7 percent of Michigan is people 18 and under. The other 77.3 percent are people who need to set the example for the young adults and children that will be their future, our future. Adolescence is not a disease, it is a time period where the individual is lacking adult understanding, and it is the opportunity to help shape the mind of the younger generations to pursue a more positive way of living to benefit everybody. Many people with siblings know the feeling of having every little thing they do repeated on...

Stomp the stigma of mental illness

Stomp the stigma of mental illness

Zack Mroz

December 19, 2014

In 2008, a nine year old boy was in a hotel room when he first allowed this little voice in his head to tell him what to do. Unfortunately, he didn’t know that simply while walking up the stairs, touching both feet on every step, would lead to an outbreak of a severe case of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Day by day this little naïve boy would allow his head to tell him what to do, which happened to be a variety of OCD tendencies. Eventually the voice in this little boy’s head controlled him, and changed the way he lived his life. At his roughest point, it took...

Don’t forget the turkey!

Don’t forget the turkey!

November 26, 2014

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christ…” No! It’s only November! What about Thanksgiving? Has America forgotten the first feast?  Thanksgiving is becoming a pre-black Friday. Can you really live without the mouth watering turkey, squishy stuffing, smooth mashed potatoes, and the soft biscuits? I didn’t think so. To most people the only holidays later in the year are Halloween and Christmas: free candy and presents. One of the reasons Thanksgiving is forgotten is that you aren’t receiving anything for free. There’s only food and being around the ones...

Anywhere you go with a lot of teens, unfortunately there will be drama. With a school of over 1,600 students, everyone will not get along, no matter how much the world wants them to. However, most show respect and concern for others. All in all, RHS is like a family, a few poor decisions should not define us. Like any other school, RHS gives students the opportunity to meet a lot of great people and grow. They are given the opportunity to take classes based on personal interests including, but not limited to: Machine Trades, Auto, Culinary Arts, World Language, Advance...
