SWE’RE BACK! JJOOPPLLIINN HHIIGGHH pyglass VOLUME XXI, ISSUE 1 october 3, 2005 Student Feature ¿ Qué Pasa? JHS student Andrew Holland finds time to teach English to elementary students Tori Flores Staff writer Have you ever thought about how frustrating it could be if you lived in a foreign country and couldn’t speak to anyone? It would seem very difficult if no one was there to help you. However, Joplin High School student, Andrew Holland, does have compassion for people trying to learn English. Andrew participates in a program called ESL (English as a Second Language) and tutors children in the Joplin school district every day during sixth and seventh period. Andrew has been teaching for the past two years at Memorial, Irving, and Stapleton. He helps Spanish-speaking kids to better understand English. There are anywhere from one to ten children per class, but that doesn’t stop Andrew from helping them all. Andrew volunteers his time and receives A+ credit for his work. Andrew plans to study at the University of Panama in the fall of ’06. This past summer, Andrew had a great time visiting Panama for two and a half weeks with family who currently live there.

However, his extended family lived on the same side of the road so Mr. Travis couldnʼt get away with anything. He fell in love with speech and debate his freshman year in high school. When he got to college he felt he had two options: to be an actor or a speech and debate teacher. His father told him to “get real”, so he chose speech theater. “When the job came open at JHS I Mr. Travis wants his class to be fun, but there has to be work involved. took it,” said Mr. Travis. The students say that the speech and debate classes are fun and exciting. Mr. Travis wants his class to be fun, but there has to be work involved.

PAGE 4 EDITORIAL THE DRESS CODE SJEOPNILIONR’SSHFIARSTSHIOSNTOPPOPLEIDCEBY Sam Littleken Editor-In-Chief In years past seniors have graced the hallways with their beautiful senior shirts. These shirts are meant to bring attention to the seniors of that year and allow them to brag that they have finally made it to this point in high school. However some t-shirts have become the symbol of the new dress code and what the administration wants to stamp out, and for good reason. The shirts in question display pictures, sayings, and symbols from many alcoholic drinks such as Smirnoff, Crown Royal, and Skyy Vodka. The other shirt that has gotten a veto is the he 7-Up parody that is a bash toward the junior class. But, this is not a new thing. Senior shirts have been under fire for some time. The class of 2004 had certain shirts made the said “Abslout Senior”. Of course the students bearing these shirts were told to turn the shirts inside out. Even with the shirts switched the fact that they were inside out let the other classes know that these were senior shirts. However, this is a tradition for seniors to have class shirts. The only thing is that seniors must stay within the boundaries of the schoolʼs dress code. Of course the dress code has changed and being more strictly enforced this year. But, these rules were in effect in the years prior to this. As of now the only shirt that is being tolerated is the “Kiss Me Iʼm A Senior”. The shirts worn are in direct violation and should have been better thought out by those who were making them. True the policy has become stricter but the apparel in question would not have permitted at any point in JHS history. The point is that senior shirts have always been a tradition, but even some things can be taken one step too far. 1 2 Spyglass is published by the newspaper class at Joplin High School, 2104 Indiana, Joplin, Missouri.

PAGE 6 AROUND CAMPUS “Teach your children well” OCTOBER 3, 2005 OCTOBER 3, 2005 Coach This! These famous words of the 60’s song ring true in many JHS teachers’ lives because their students just might be their children! Amanda Clemons Staff Writer Ever think your parents are in your school life too much? Imagine if they were your teacher. Well, there are many students with parents who teach at JHS. Ashley Polleyʼs father teaches JROTC. “ Itʼs ok, itʼs kind of fun, but I donʼt get special treatment since itʼs my dad,” said junior Ashley Polley. “ I think itʼs great having a daughter that goes to this school so I can watch her!” said 1st Sergeant Polley. “You get the feeling of someone being here to hold you up,” said junior Max Schnur. This can give parents a better opportunity to know their childʼs teachers more and know more about their studentʼs school life. “Itʼs great because “Itʼs not too bad except she can check up on me a lot, but she does help me out” -- senior Philip Myers I can see all her teachers!” said JHS receptionist Mrs. Van Fleet. Having a parent can be beneficial too - a tutor 24/7, and someone who can explain anything you donʼt understand. But if you get into trouble they will know quickly. Your parents can know about anything sooner than they would. “I really like working here and having my daughter in school here, it allows me to understand her world,” said Suzanna Dimmit, JHS Guidance Secretary “Having a child, itʼs very challenging. There are some days it works well because if there is something I need to know about, I find out more quickly. I do try to let him have his space so he is not in my shadow,” said JHS teacher Mrs. Myers. “Itʼs not too bad except she can check up on me a lot, but she does help me out,” said senior Philip Myers. “Having a child, itʼs very challenging.

Preparing for the future Hosted - By Mrs. Schurman Joplin School Showcase Joplin Sports Central Trisha Tupper Staff writer Every year, all of the teachers expect the most out of their students. Well, it actually goes both ways. The students want to see good things come from the teachers as well. That’s why it is good to know that a new staff member will fit right in. You might have seen him in Lower A Hall. He is tall, and has that “coach appeal” to him. His name is Mr. Jeff Thompson. He recently came to Joplin High School from Edmond, Oklahoma and he seems happy to be here. “I like the people I work with. I like the students, and I like how everyone is working to improve students. We are all committed to see students succeed,” says Thompson. Coaching for twelve years, and teaching for nine, Mr. Thompson took on the job of Assistant Coach for the JHS Varsity Football Team as well. High school football is not the only thing he has been around either. He has also coached college football, and has spent time coaching the Arena League. This year he is teaching Government to juniors, and World History to freshman. He also has experience in teaching Economics, Geography, and Sociology. “I have a passion for what I do. I love to coach and I love to teach,” he said. That is the attitude everyone likes to hear. We hope that he will keep that attitude, and enjoy Joplin High.

PAGE 8 ENTERTAINMENT OCTOBER 3, 2005 PAGE 10 SPORTS OCTOBER 3, 2005 My Chemical Romance “Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge” Sam Littleken Editor-In-Chief “Trust me, Iʼm not okay!” This cry of bottled up emotions from My Chemical Romanceʼs first released song from the album, “Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge,” set the tone for things to come. The first song sang the sorrow of anyone who has been in love but was overlooked for someone else. Instead of the normal response to the question always asked, “Are you okay?” lead “At the end of the world or the last thing I see, you are never coming home. ” singer, Gerard, screams back “Iʼm not okay!” rather than pretending to be all right. The follow-up was even bigger than this hit when “Helena” was released. The song is a tribute to Gerard and guitarist Mikeyʼs grandmother who passed away. The boys get a send off by saying, “So long and goodnight”. The music video is even set during a funeral. This song is different than any other on the CD, and you can almost feel their pain as Gerard sings the song. The most recent song released has been “The Ghost of You”. The song is a farewell to someone who is left, and is never coming back. The intro is very calming and softer but raises and speeds up, as the words get stronger with the chorus. The strongest part comes at the end with the chorus lines “At the end of the world or the last “My biggest challenge is the upcoming game” Lori Eckhardt Staff writer “This is such a great place to be”, says head football coach Doug Buckmaster. Coach Buckmaster transferred this year from the Carthage Tigers to being a soaring Joplin Eagle. “I have always been pretty optimistic about coaching,” he said, “but Iʼm excited about this year.” CD Cover From MyChemicalRomance..com Coach Buckmaster always sets his standards high and plays one game at a time. “My thing I see, you are never coming home. ” biggest challenge is the upcoming game.” Coach These are the three major released songs Buckmaster is very pleased on how the season is from the CD but there is many more, such as going so far. “I will coach one game at a time, and “Cemetery Drive” and “To The End”. Every song just feed off of that.” on My Chemical Romanceʼs album is amazing and The season has been going well. The only is something that should be listened to. issue the team is facing so early is injuries. It is affecting the games and the practices a great deal. “When you lose four of the starters, it can really take a toll on the team as a whole,” says Coach Buckmaster. The team has lost junior Marco Maturino, who was the starting receiver and he is out for the season. Senior Shahpore Khalifeh, who was a starting wide receiver, is currently off with an injury, senior Phillip Myers is off also, and is still pending if he is going to come back, and sophomore JaʼCobe Britt which is starting free safety is off with an in injury. Senior Creston Hill has the most rushing yards with approximately 300 in 2 games. The leader with the most passing yards is Blake Chapman with “Iʼm going to miss playing football, and I appreciate the coaches and players. I hope they keep up the good work next year.” -Shahpore Khalifeh “Each week we are improving due to the new coaching staff” -Blake Chapman 285 yards. Receiving leader is Corey Wattelet. Creston Hill has already scored three touchdowns and Corey Wattelet caught a touchdown pass from Blake Chapman in the Glendale game. “I thought [the pep rally] was awesome”, said Coach Buckmaster. He added that is was one of the best he had ever been to. “Right now we are not playing to our fullest, but when we do we will be a ʻvery dangerousʼ team.” -Will Lynch -Chris Black S45 FOOTBALL Oct 7 PARKVIEW HOME VOLLEYBALL Oct 4 MAC COUNTY HOME Oct 14 HILLCREST AWAY Oct 6 KICKAPOO AWAY C Oct 21 LEE'S SUMMIT NORTH HOME Oct 8 NEOSHO TOURNEY AWAY Oct 28 LEE'S SUMMIT AWAY Oct 11 PARKVIEW HOME H Nov 11 ROCKHURST HOME Oct 13 WEST PLAINS AWAY Oct 18 WAYNESVILLE HOME E SOCCER Oct 20 LEBANNON AWAY D Oct 3 CARL JUNCTION HOME Oct 24-28 DISTRICTS AWAY Oct 4 PARKVIEW AWAY U Oct 7-8 JOPLIN INVITATIONAL HOME Oct 11 WAYNESVILLE AWAY L Oct 13 NIXA AWAY Oct 18 LEBANNON HOME E Oct 20 CARTHAGE HOME S Oct 24 CASSVILLE AWAY

OCTOBER 3, 2005 SPORTS PAGE 11 PAGE 12 THE FINAL WORD OCTOBER 3, 2005 No Pads, No Helmets, and Lots of Collisions! Tori Flores Staff Writer The Joplin High School soccer team is off to a good start this year with an 8-5 record. Soc- cer players can have anywhere from two to three games per week with the occasional tournament on the weekends. When asked why soccer is better than football, soccer captain, senior Mike Myers says: “We have better tans!” Other captains this year are senior John Duncan Jr., and senior Nick Phipps. “We hope to have shout out and mini games during half time,” says coach Tom Mac- Queeney. He adds that this might help attract more of Joplin high school students to come to more soccer games. Coach Ed Miller says, “It would be good to get a bigger student body representation and a home-field advantage.” There really needs to be more spirit couches and lots of fans to help out soccer, according to soccer players and coaches. Soccer games are all action and almost photo by Tori Flores non-stop. No pads, no helmets and lots of colli- Joplin soccer players practice hard before games. sions so fans are stoked to see more action than in a football game. Good soccer games use excellent strategy, skilled footwork and flowed passing which is everything Joplin soccer players are working toward. Players enjoy “Fun Friday” because they get to play games: activities such as world cup, knockout, butts-up, and 3-on-3. Most of these Remembering John Waregames are passing and footwork practices, but are also very entertaining to watch and play. Their biggest rivals, Rolla and Kickapoo, are in for a huge surprise this year because Joplin Eagle soccer players have been working hard all summer long running drills and practicing for three hours a day. During a regular after-school practice, soccer players can expect to run anywhere from five to ten miles! Soccer is expecting to have a great season this year with all the practice and effort they have put in so far. Having middle school soccer programs in Joplin and surrounding areas would really help boost the competition during high school, say Joplin High School soccer coaches. There is usually great competition all year round anyway, so this year is going to be no exception. Good luck Joplin soccer team! MSSU Mourns the loss of Football Coach Sam Littleken Editor-In-Chief On Tuesday, September 27, Missouri Southern, Joplin, and the world lost a wonderful man, in Coach John Ware. Ware joined the Southern staff as the Lionsʼ head football coach, in December 2003. In that short time Coach Ware changed the Southern football team and left his mark on the campus as well as the area as a whole. Coach Ware came to Southern after a nine year run as coach of the Truman State Bulldogs. Ware was also a former All-American football player at Drake. In 1981, San Francisco brought him in for a tryout with the 49ers. Ware also was a former five-time United States Senior National Powerlifting champion, and in 1991 won the World Powerlifting title. In his one full season with Southern, Coach Ware turned the team from a 1-10 record the previous season to a 5-6 record last year. In all Ware, had a 7-9 record with Southern and a 61-53 overall coaching record. These stats are impressive but one of the greatest stories of Coach Ware is that on the day of Southernʼs biggest game, against Pitt State, Ware had his players out collecting money for the hurricane Katrina relief fund. This alone tells what kind of a person Coach Ware really was. Assistant head coach Keeth Matheny, will lead the Lionsʼ this Saturday against Wareʼs former school Truman State in Southernʼs homecoming. Appropriately there will be probably something in rememberance of Coach Ware Photo from MSSU.edu Hueller joins JHS administrative team Heather Duggar Staff writer “The atmosphere is upbeat and positive,” said Mr. Dan Hueller, the new principal for JHS. He joined the schoolʼs administration staff as the principal for the class of 2007. Mr. Hueller came to JHS from Sarcoxie. “I live in Joplin and my kids go to Martin Luther,” said Mr. Hueller. He has three children, one boy 10 and two girls 8 and 5. Mr. Hueller is a family-orientated man and loves working with kids. “Kids are kids anywhere you go,” said Mr. Hueller. That is one of the many reasons he became a teacher in the first place, He taught at Martin Luther Elementary, then he was asked to be a principal for the Sarcoxie Middle and High school and saw a better way to help the kids. “I look at myself as a good listener and a positive role model,” he said. Mr. Hueller started out just like all of us. He did what he had to in order to pass his classes. “My parents were very shocked when I told them I wanted to be a teacher,” said Mr. Hueller.

OCTOBER 3, 2005 ENTERTAINMENT PAGE 9 Charlie and the Chocolate The Golden Ticket Factory Shemaryah Parker Staff Writer Most nights in the Bucket home, dinner is a watered-down bowl of cabbage soup, which young Charlie,played by Freddie Highmore gladly shares with his mother and father and both pairs of grandparents. Every night, the last thing Charlie sees from his window is Willy Wonkaʼs, played by Johnny Depp, great factory, and he drifts off to sleep dreaming about what might be inside. For nearly fifteen years, no one has seen a single worker going in or coming out of the factory, or caught a glimpse of Wonka himself, yet, great quantities of chocolate are still being made and shipped all over the world. One day Willy Wonka makes a momentous announcement. He will open his famous factory and reveal “all of its secrets and magic” to five lucky children who find golden tickets hidden inside five randomly selected Wonka chocolate bars. Nothing would make Charlieʼs family happier than to see him win but the odds are very much against him as they can only afford to buy one chocolate bar a year, for his birthday. One by one, news breaks around the world about the children finding golden tickets and Charlieʼs hope grows dimmer. But then, something wonderful happens. Charlie finds some money on the snowy street and takes it to the nearest store for a Wonka Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight. There, under the wrapper is a flash of gold. Itʼs the last ticket. Charlie is going to the factory! The family decides that Grandpa Joe, who used to work in the factory, should be the one to accompany Charlie on this adventure. Once inside, Charlie is dazzled by one amazing sight after another. Wondrous gleaming contraptions of Wonkaʼs own invention churn, pop, and whistle, crews of merry Oompa-Loompas mine mountains of fudge beside a frothy chocolate waterfall, a hundred trained squirrels on a hundred tiny stools shell nuts for chocolate bars, and Wonka himself pilots an impossible glass elevator that rockets every which way you can think of through the fantastic factory. Almost as intriguing as his fanciful inventions is Willy Wonka. He thinks about nothing but candy-except, every once in a while, when he seems to be thinking about something that happened long ago, that he canʼt quite talk about. Meanwhile, the other children prove to be a rotten bunch, and one by one, their greedy personalities lead them into all kinds of trouble that force them off the tour. When only Charlie is left, Willie Wonka reveals the final secret, the absolute grandest prize of all: the keys to the factory itself.

One by one the other childrenʼs greed and corruptions lead to their expulsions from the factory. Until only Charlie is left and then asked by Wonka to take over, when Wonka wishes to retire.
