JJOOPPLLIINN HHIIGGHH pyglass VOLUME XXI, ISSUE 5 MARCH 6, 2006 Pro Musica: MA uCseilcebanradtiAonrt of Heather Duggar Photo Editor Pro Musica put on a spectacular performance here at Joplin High School on Friday, Feb. 24 at 10:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Joplin was the very first to hear the composition and to see the photograph that inspired the composition. Paul Schoenfield composed “The Sower” and Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison took the photo. The song is 12-minutes long and was performed by the Jupiter String Quartet from Boston. The seats were filled in the auditorium mostly of music students and of many adults. The composer and the photographer spoke about the piece. They explained what they had been thinking about when they made the piece and their inspiration. The Jupiter String Quartet explained parts of the music before actually playing the full piece. Robert ParkeHarrison is trained as a photographer but he doesnʼt take photos like other photographers do. He combines the ideas of past and future, not only in his subject matter, but within his art process as well. Robert is the actor in the photo and his wife Shana took the photo. Paul Schoenfield started studying piano at six and wrote his first composition the year after. This particular piece took him a couple months to write, and he still will making adjustments throughout the time the quartet will be playing the piece; he calls it fine-tuning. The Jupiter String Quartet has been together for a couple of years now and they perform all over the world. Nelson Lee and Meg Freivogel play violin, Liz Freivogel plays Viola, and Daniel Mcdonough plays cello in the quartet. Nelson Lee showed the audience the fast parts of the song while Daniel McDonough explained what that part meant. Photo by Brenda White Paul Schoenfield (left) and Robert Parke Harrison told the history of how the pieces came together and then took questions from their student audience.

The closest thing right now that I have to think about is Prom. I’m not worried, just nervous (yet, very excited). When it comes down to it, I will be concerned whether some other girl has the same dress I am wearing, if my hair looks great, and if I will trip and make a complete fool out of myself wearing heels. There is something about dances that can get to girls. Yeah, you are supposed to have fun at them and not worry about other things. But there is more to it. I’m sure a lot of girls freak out the day of a big dance. We all get up early to go get our hair and nails done, wait patiently as a whole lot of make-up is on our faces, and maybe shave our legs if we forgot to do it the night before. I guess it is just a girl thing. Guys don’t have this much trouble. All they have to do is put a tux on, put a little gel in their hair, and walk out the door (without forgetting to bring the girl a flower). Even though I will be going nuts the day of Prom, at the end of the night I will be happy that I went (and wishing I didn’t wear heels at all). But hey, it’s Senior Prom, how could you miss out on that. So…what happens after that night? Well, of course every one of us will be wishing we could get out of here. Yearbooks will be arriving, and we will begin to say our goodbyes Spyglass is published by the newspaper class at Joplin High School, 2104 Indiana, Joplin, Missouri. to our teachers, our friends, and the underclassmen. It will go by so fast. Question: Will we miss it? I would have to say yes. Even though I will be happy to be out of high school; but there are so many The opinions expressed in the newspaper are not necessarily those of the district, administration or staff of Joplin High School. memories. There is so much we went through before we got this far. I, for one, hated the MAP Tests, the assemblies, the crowded hallways, the food in the cafeteria, and the parking. But then again, I liked the school spirit. We have pride in our Editor- in-chief: Sam Litteken Advertising Manager: Shemaryah Parker school. It’s actually not a bad thing to say, “I went to Joplin High.” So, is it just me, or do a lot of you feel like skipping? It is getting so close to the end of our high school careers that I feel as if it doesn’t matter whether or not I go to my first hour. I would love to just sleep in, but I can’t. I still have to be here. But I’m sure I Photo Editor: can stake it out for a little bit longer. Now, when it comes down to graduating, I’m extremely excited. Heather Duggar I really can’t wait to grab my diploma, and smile (even if I’m relieved to have finally gotten it over with). Staff Writers: Trisha Tupper Amanda Clemons Coby Pierce Adviser: Brenda White The thing that makes me really nervous is moving away. Going to college, living in dorms, and doing my own laundry. I will admit it -- I can’t do laundry. I have to learn. Even though it’s nerve wracking, I am glad I get to do it. I know it will be four more years till I graduate (again), but it’s worth going through. Although it’s a huge change, I will be happy when it is all over. So, even if I have my worries finishing up my senior year, I must say it’s been a good four years. I hope you all have the pleasure of leaving here with dignity.

PAGE 5 MARCH 2006 Drama TALL TALES Sam Litteken Editor-In-Chief The Joplin High Theatre Department recently took their oneact “Tall Tale” from The Kentucky Cycle, to district competition in Neosho. The story follows the Rowen family as they meet a storyteller, J.T. Wells, played by Tom Steere, who buys the mineral rights to their land, to help the family out. However, he later reveals to Mary Anne, played by Katie Honeywell, that the company is going to destory their land to begin mining for the coal that lays underneath the land. The group would be up against some of the best theatre from many of the surrounding area schools. After all eleven shows had performed Joplin walked away with third place, just missing the chance to advance to state competition. The two that the district would send to state were from Neosho and Mount Vernon. However, for his performance as Tommy Jackson, Joplinʼs own Lyle Uttley won the title of Best Supporting Actor.

Joplinʼs First Prom Fair Heather Duggar Staff writer The JHS Prom Fair was held on Saturday, February 25 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the school cafeteria. Many different businesses were there to advertise for prom. The businesses included many different tanning places, dress and tux places, and salons. Some were giving out free samples, and students went ahead and set their appointments that day. “Overall, I thought Prom Fair was a great service for students and businesses alike.” --Mrs. Leatherman The fashion show was a huge hit, showing off different dresses and tuxedos. The models for the fashion show were students from the high school and workers from the businesses. The prom committee worked extra hard on the fair. It was a huge success for everyone involved. Many businesses left with new customers and some left with the promise of students coming into their store to get what they need and want for prom at the right price.

Resturant Reviews PAGE 11 MARCH 2006 815 W. 7TH St. Joplin, Missouri 64801 (417)-206-3474 Hours: Mon. thru Sat. 11 A.M.-10 P.M. CRABBY’S Seafood Bar & Grill – 815 W. 7TH Street, Joplin (417)-206-3474 HOURS: Mon.-Sat. 11 A.M.-10 P.M. By Trisha Tupper What’s in a name? Well… everything actually. The name Crabby’s states that there is crab at this restaurant. But here, there is not just crab. In fact, not only are there assortments of seafood, but there’s even hamburgers for those who fear fish, crab, or anything of that sort. In a small building located in a less known part of Joplin, Crabby’s has a nighttime tone to it. With red and white [dimmed] lighting, a bar located in the middle of the restaurant, and the waiters and waitresses dressed in black and red, you can feel somewhat fancy. There are black and white paintings and photos, neatly framed and placed over every booth. The atmosphere of the restaurant is just enjoyable. The kitchen is located towards the back of the restaurant, in plain sight, in order to see while your food is being cooked. Everything in that area is clean and well kept (stainless steel everywhere), and the chefs actually look as if they enjoy their work. The food is delicious, and the fast service was a plus. So even if you don’t like seafood, you can treat yourself to a big salad, a juicy steak, delicious pasta, and yes, a variety of burgers and sandwiches. So, not only will you receive great service and yummy sourdough bread served with your meal, when you dine at Crabby’s, you leave with a full stomach. This is definitely a place to try! (Due to small space, reservations are recommended for parties of more than four.) I Suggest: Appetizer - Bacon Wrapped Spicy Grilled Shrimp Sicilian Chicken Pasta Grilled Chicken & Shrimp Drinks - Two Sodas Dessert - Cheesecake with berries (2 slices) $7 $12 $13 $3 $12 Total for two with 15% tip $54 BRFM4R4reey1oiTdds7HnCead-aOory6avnbn-2yadyiSo-3tVianP-To1tiinherCu0gsurrac0idrnfSse4éaiudayga,:ygJ1:oe1sp8tlAieAn.d.MM..--99PP..MM.. 1212 Main Street Joplin, MO 64801 HOURS Monday-Saturday 11:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. The Red Onion Café is a place where people can go and have a great meal at a decent price. The Red Onion has been around for a number of years. The restaurant first started on Main St. and migrated to 4th and Virginia. The food is outstanding. The Grilled Chicken Alfredo is made with a chicken breast , and seasoned with Cavenderʼs Greek seasoning. The chicken is sliced and served over Greek seasoned pasta alfredo. The appetizers are great, too. The smoked Chicken Dip is delicious. Itʼs served with cheese dip and chips. The service is the best thing of all. They would prefer you to make reservations but they accept walk-ins. They have a variety of drinks from iced tea to most Coke products. I suggest: Starters Smoked Chicken Dip $5.49 [2] Grilled Chicken Alfredo $14.98 2 Beverages $2.90 Chocolate Fudge Cake (for 2) $4.00 Total for 2 includiing tip $32.58 Mon.-Thurs. 8 a.m. - 9 p.m. Fri. and Sat. 11 a.m.- 9 p.m. Reservations Suggested The Kitchen Pass Restaurant & Bar 1212 Main Street, Joplin (417)-624-9095 Hours: Mon. - Sat. 11 A.M.-10 P.M. By Trisha Tupper If you are looking for a fun evening with your friends, and you’re ready to just kick back and enjoy the atmosphere, than The Kitchen Pass in Joplin is the place to go. With dim lights, calming music, and the smell of good food, this restaurant can be relaxing to anyone. When you first walk in, it seems as if you won’t even be able to see the face of the person you are with. However, once you sit down, the darkness really fits the place. The decorations in the place are fitting. There are interesting pictures on the walls, small lights hanging over your table, and even the old-fashioned ketchup and mustard bottles. It is just a comforting place. The food is mostly café style eating: hamburgers, large salads, varieties of sandwiches, and even Ruffle’s potato chips. But then there are things that throw the style of restaurant off. As appetizers, you can get Hell Fire Wings, Fried Cheese, Stuffed Mushrooms, Spinach Artichoke Dip, and Egg Rolls. There is also seafood, including a Swordfish Steak and Grilled Salmon. You can get steak and chicken in almost any way you like it. There are desserts such as Chocolate Chip Cheesecake, Bourbon Street Pecan Pie, and Fried Cheesecake. Of course there is the regular assortment of beverages, Coke Products, and then also alcoholic beverages (not that it matters –kids!). The Kitchen Pass is a very nice restaurant, with good food. It is something to try if you are ever in need of a good cheeseburger. Something to Try: Spicy Blooming Onion (Appetizer) Old Fashioned Cheeseburger w/Bacon Submarine Sandwich 2 Sundaes 1 Coke, 1 Dr. Pepper $6.85 $6.15 $6.95 $4.90 $2.70 Total for Two (with 15% tip!) $32.00

The atmosphere is pleasant; the décor gives a feel of an old harbor with modern displays. Minimal lighting adds to an evening atmosphere. Appetizers include enough to share, and include delicious varieties ranging from lobster pizza to chicken fingers. Also, for those wanting to try different kinds of seafood, they also have a seafood sampler which features a few of Red Lobsterʼs specialties. The dishes served are excellent. Entrees range from many types of seafood such as scallops, calamari, lobster, shrimp, crab, and flounder. Every entrée comes with a fresh salad, either Caesar or dressing, and warm butter rolls. Instead of an entrée you can go with their “Create Your Own” dish. Where you can choose up to three different kinds of seafood to create your own desired meal. Even though dessert choices are limited, the dessert menu offers different cakes and pies that are sweet and flavorful. Desserts include chocolate cake, key lime pie, caramel apple crunch, and more.

By Heather Duggar One of our finest Old Italian restaurants, Olive Garden, is one of the many spots where prom-goers will dine on that magical prom night. When you first walk in the door, you are greeted by the workers and the beautiful Italian music. While walking to your seat you see many pictures of Italian families and of Italian men and women working. The service was great. Our server was very nice and very speedy with whatever we needed. The food was very flavorful and cooked to perfection. The menu consists of Italian food. You can order soup and salads for a cheap price or maybe youʼd like to try the chicken alfredo pizza. If you are watching what you eat they have many items marked on the menu. They have Coke products along with sweet or unsweetened tea, coffee, and juices. They even have specialty sodas like Sicilian splash and Italian sodas. They have many appetizers, and the one you always get is the delicious bread sticks . Olive Garden is the type of restaurant you go to and try everything and always go home with a favorite. After your meal, your server brings your ticket along with chocolate mints for everyone. You can either have two hearty meals, or you can share.

Prom Bella Peer’s Italian Kitchen Bella Pepperʼs 2525 S Range Line Road, Joplin (417) 781-7711 Reservations are recommended for large parties By Amanda Clemons For people who enjoy Italian food, this is a place to try. The atmosphere sets a romantic mood with crooner music, dimmed lights, and classic decoration. Service was quick and polite. The menu offered a variety of pastas, noodles, and other Italian entrees, but also included an American sub menu. Appetizers was a choice of different Italian snacks. The bruschetta bread, which was warm bread with a white cheese topping with diced tomatoes and parsley, was delicious. Every entrees come with garlic bread and your choice of either a soup or salad.

You can order the traditional Italian foods such as spaghetti or ravioli, or you can order a more exquisite meal for a bigger taste of Italy. Also you may choose to eat American food if you like.

The Italian Sodas is your choice of a fruit soda, such as raspberry, cherry or orange, that is served with whipped topping.

With the big wooden table and booths and beautiful woodland murals , the atmosphere of the restauarant makes you feel like you are in the Rocky Mountains. Waiting time is short, service is fast and the poeple are friendly. As an appetizer I suggest breaded cheese sticks with marinara sauce. They were the best I have ever had.

Overall our service was terrific. We had only about a ten minute wait, our waiter was friendly and got our food out to us fast.
