RHS fights back with the facts

November 19, 2014

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...

Order of the Pink Ribbon

October 30, 2014

As everybody knows, October is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The first thing to pop in one's head is the notorious pink ribbon. Eventually a plethora of these pink products litter the shelves of every store. Ranging from stationary to jewelry and even food, no product is safe from Susan G. Komen. Whilst the intentions are pure, people, and mostly their pocketbooks, are unfortunately being taken advantage of in this pastel fantasy. That pink ribbon isn't all that we think it is. Raising millions of dollars every year, Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the largest...

When does the humor in costumes cross the line into more serious offenses? Previously aimed toward the child demographic, Halloween has grown to include the elders of society. Not only does that mean more gore and violence, but of course the inevitable sexualization of the holiday. When one peruses the Party City catalogue during this season, it is obvious to notice the hoard of...

Almost everyone has seen the boy with the oxygen tank walking down the hallway; well that is my brother. Myles Castillo, RHS junior, has been dealing with impaired breathing, ever since he was one year old. Myles contracted pneumonia and a virus that attacked his white blood cells and would not allow them produce the oxygen needed. The illness will affect the rest of his life. Myles was later hospitalized and put on a ventilator and a trake. A ventilator is a machine that makes your lungs breathe; it pushes air in and out, and a trake is a whole in your neck with a...

Snack battle: Health vs. Hunger

The apple takes the place of many beloved snacks. Is this war?

Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you have no doubt seen the changes that the Afterschool Meal Program, under the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids act, has created. It has wrecked havoc on the Panther Den, Snack Shack, and after school fundraisers.  When the school year started students were surprised when the war for healthy eating had reached an all-time high, its victim, snacks.  The side who marked their victory was the government, headed by the USDA and First Lady Michelle Obama.  It is official; the government has invaded the lunch room, and has been since the...
