Where CHS watches sports

For the students of Carrboro High School, sports are a huge part of life. Whether they’re watching their local Tar Heels perform at the college level, or cheering on the various favorite professional teams of many students; CHS loves to watch sports.

And in Chapel Hill, where sports are an integral piece of society, it comes as no surprise that Jaguars have favorite spots to watch their teams duke it out on the big stage.

“Me and some friends like watching soccer over at IP3, on Franklin,” said senior That Htoo. “It’s been especially fun to watch this season since my favorite club Chelsea is top of the league!”

Pizza places are sport-viewing havens for many CHS sports fans. “I remember during March Madness some of the Landgate boys and I would watch the UNC games over at Old Chicago,” said senior Alex Hoffman.

For many of the CHS students who wanted to cheer on their favorite college basketball team, however, they found refuge in somewhere other than a restaurant.

The Dean Smith Center provided a venue with only one purpose: to support the Heels. On the night of the national championship game, many CHS faithful could be spotted there. “The atmosphere of the Dean Dome was really intense, really stressful and really great. Also, after the win in the national championship the walk to Franklin Street was really quick,” said sophomore Serhat Calikoglu.

The “walk” is a UNC tradition, where all fans rush to Franklin Street in celebration of a National Championship win or win over rival Duke. Thousands stormed Franklin after the victory including CHS students.

For the Duke fans at CHS, going to see the Blue Devils play live is an experience unlike any other. “I saw Duke play basketball at home last season, and it was an awesome experience to actually be there,” said Ben Lu.

And of course, nothing beats watching a big game at your own home. “It’s just easier to watch games at home sometimes,” said sophomore Julia Sistachs.

Regardless of location, it’s undeniable that the Jaguars love to go all out for their favorite sports teams.

CHS celebrates ten years of theatre

Every year the students of Theatre IV produce a show that proves to be a culmination of four years of hard work; but this year’s 10-Year Anniversary Revue instead opts to look back even before the freshman years of the Theatre IV seniors.

This upcoming spring show is a showcase of all the musicals and plays put on by the Carrboro High School Theatre Department in its ten years of performances.

From the 2007 fall play of The Curious Savage to this year’s Cinderella, a scene from each play and a song from each musical have been included in this condensed summary of these past ten years of theatrical excellence.

For senior Theatre IV student and Musical Director/Producer Julia Stamey, this show doesn’t come without its challenges.

“The show order [is the hardest part]. All the shows are really fantastic on their own, but it’s been surprisingly hard to find a way to make every scene flow,” said Stamey.

Initially the completely student run show was planned to pan out in chronological order, alternating between a scene from a play and a song from each musical for each year in the order in which they were performed.

“We decided against [doing it that way] because the flow was really bad,” said Stamey. “For example, going chronological would mean we would of gone straight from Chicago to Shakespeare; it just doesn’t make sense.”

After carefully curating the order of these pieces however, the Theatre IV class has made certain that this variety show is a cohesive masterpiece.

This an impressive undertaking given that every year the Theatre IV show is almost completely student run.

“It’s basically a huge final project, so it’s not completely independent because we have Ms. Stegall and Katie as resources. We’ll be receiving a grade and making major decisions; in the end it’s our project, for better or for worse,” said Stamey.

From May 20-21 this medley showcasing the highlights of The Penelopiad to The Little Prince will be put on in the CHS auditorium.

Lunchtime Behind the Scenes

Cafeteria workers serve school lunches to over half of all schoolchildren in the U.S. Many students get their first and second meals of the day from the school cafeteria. But what goes on behind the scenes in the preparation of these lunches?

“Well first, we look at the production sheet,” said Carrboro cafeteria worker Misty Paisant. After noting the production sheet, the actual cooking process begins.

“If there’s any vegetables, wash the vegetables; after that, cut them up; then prepare them to go into the steamer,” said Paisant.

If necessary, whatever meat or entree is going with the vegetables is prepared in the pan.

“We either cook that ahead of time or cook it later on — it all depends on what it is; fish you cook later; lasagna or spaghetti, you bake it; chicken, you cook ahead of time — by the time lunchtime comes it’s coming out the oven,” said Paisant.

This process is completed in full everyday before serving the meals to much of the student population.

Paisant’s favorite part of the lunch preparation process is the cooking.

“I just love cooking — it’s just been a passion of mine since I was like six or seven years old,” said Paisant.

When she was younger she ate school lunches as well.

“They were great. The pizzas — flat, square pizzas — those were the best lunches,” said Paisant.

The pizza [we make] has actually gotten better — they look like Papa Johns pizzas, not just little square pizzas. So, they taste better and they look better,” said Paisant.

“My favorite lunch was the grilled cheese,” said Paisant’s cafeteria co-worker Cheryl Weaver. Now that she’s preparing them however, Weaver has a different favorite to make.

“Pizza. That’s what I do — I make pizza,” said Weaver.

Paisant’s favorite dish to prepare is Lasagna. “It’s complicated — there’s so many steps to it — but it comes out looking so pretty,” said Paisant.

These are the testimonies of just two of the many dedicated workers in CHS’ cafeteria.

Student Spotlight: Millie McGuire

Below is an interview with junior Millie McGuire. The JagWire has edited the interview for content and brevity. 

JagWire: When and why did you start singing?

Millie McGuire: I’ve been singing since I was a kid, and I’ve been doing musicals since sixth grade. I didn’t realize I was any good at it until high school when Marichi Gupta [who attended CHS from 2012 to 2015] told me to audition for Unnecessary Measures, and I was like, “Oh I might be good at this!”

JW: Who’s your inspiration? Who do you aspire to model your music after?

MM: I have lots of musical inspirations, but my main one is my girl Amy Winehouse. She just loves the music more than anything else in the world, and her voice is pure beauty.

JW: What are you working on now?

MM: I performed in the CHS musical, Cinderella, as the stepmother, and I’m in the co-ed a cappella group Unnecessary Measures. I am also working on making an album with Chris Stamey, a local music producer.

JW: What is your album going to be like?

MM: I’ll let you know when I know! I don’t know anything as of now. We are working on figuring out my style. I’ve never written original music, and that’s all Chris Stamey does, so figuring out what I want my music to sound like and what’s do-able is definitely going to be a learning process.

JW: You were on the radio this past winter, right? What was that all about?

MM: So, Chris Stamey had this idea to write a 1960s Manhattan radio play, called Occasional Shivers, about me and some other singers like Walker Harrison [who attended CHS from 2011 to 2015] living in New York and trying to make it in the music business. I recorded demos with him, performed on NPR, and he just brought me along for the ride.

JW: Do you have any plans for your singing career?

MM: The plan is to study music during college because I can sing somewhat well, but I don’t really know a lot about music theory and stuff like that. So I think the plan is to learn and then go from there. Eventually, I hope to release my own music and albums.

JW: What’s your go-to song to sing?

MM: I’m thinking probably “Valerie” [by Amy Winehouse]. I don’t know though. I think I sound really good singing “Baby” by Justin Bieber, which is ridiculous, but it’s like right in my sweet spot.

JW: Where can we listen to your music?

MM: You can find me on YouTube or SoundCloud — just Google Millie McGuire. On SoundCloud, it’s just my name, and my website is in the works.

Clams carry CHS spirit

For most high school teams, the prospect of not being associated and funded by their school would stop them in their tracks. The Carrboro Clams, a club frisbee team, however, are used to it. For the “Clamily” this dependence has never been a problem.

“It’s not very hard. Sometimes logistics are difficult but all of the players are very driven and independent,” said senior Ben Heuser regarding the student-run aspect of Frisbee.

That’s not to say the Clams being a club doesn’t influence the team at all though.

“The biggest influence of being a club is not having access to school fields – we’re about to lose our practice fields and don’t have a backup,” said Heuser.

Since their main practice field is located at Lincoln Center, some recently-unveiled plans bode very poorly for the Clams. With plans to replace the fields out front of the center with a parking lot, the Clams will have to find a practice field, and fast.

The Clams don’t let this get them down however, as they prefer to look at the positives.

“I really like that Ultimate Frisbee is a club and not a sanctioned school sport. While the Clams might not have field space at Carrboro, we gain a lot of flexibility in our practice scheduling,” said senior captain Connor Greene.

Once again, the Clams prefer to look at the positives.

“We have the ability to attend several tournaments every year, which give new [and returning] players a lot of valuable experience.” said Greene. “But the best part about the Clams is how relaxed it is, but also how much people care about and each other. It’s a lot of fun, but we get serious when we need to.”

But no matter how intense it can get, the Clams always keep the fun-loving and positive attitude that make them one of CHS’s best, and quirkiest, teams; sanctioned or not.

History of Holiday Songs!

1-Let it snow

Sophomore Joe Kellys’ favorite holiday song, “Let it Snow”, was written by two musicians, Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne. Longing for winter during a scorching Los Angeles July, the two sat down and wrote this classic in 1945.  Since then, it’s been adapted by many musicians, with the most famous being the 1962 Bing Crosby rendition. ¨The Bing Crosby version is the one I know and love,” Kelly said.

AP Studio Art Student

Q: What do you do in AP Studio Art?

A: We have three categories: breadth, quality, and concentration, and we need to make about 7 pieces for each category to then send to a college board who then gives us an AP score

Q: Do your pieces follow a consistent platform throughout each category, as in are they all drawings or photos?

A: Ok so breadth is supposed to show a range of what you can do so like a pencil or paint or whatever you can think of (including photography). Quality is basically just your best pieces, and concentration is making sure that you have ten or so cohesive pieces that follow a theme.

Q: What is your consistent theme?

A: Mine is conformity, so things trying to fit in whether it be people or objects or whatever.

Q: Why did you choose this theme?

A: Well it’s supposed to be a topic that you can investigate and look really in depth at.It seemed like something interesting that I could tie current issues into. Focusing on a high school you see a lot of people trying to fit in.

Q: Would you say you focus more on people and their trying to fit in socially rather than objects and more abstract things?

A: My focus is mainly people but I need diversity in my artwork so I need other stuff.

Q: Do you think you might pursue artwork later on in life? If so, has this class inspired you to do so?

A: I don’t think I would pursue artwork as a career but I’ll definitely keep doing it for fun. The class has just reminded me how hard it is to create art with a deadline.

Student Spotlight: Emmanuel Oquaye

Q1: What started your love of sculpting?

A1: In ceramics class freshman year, I was given a sculpting assignment and at first it was just an assignment but I took it so much more seriously.

Q1.5: What was the assignment?
A1.5: An animal sculpture that everyone did. I just gravitated to it a lot more than other people, and they started noticing that and that I was doing a good job that displayed my talent.

Q2: And how long have you been sculpting?
A2: Three years now.

Q3: What do you like so much about sculpting?
A3: You can be more creative than you can be with the wheel.

Q4: Do you also work on the wheel?
A4: Yeah the wheel is always beautiful but I prefer sculpting because it’s so free. Obviously there are advantages to both.

Q5: Where do you plan on going with your sculpting?
A5: I might want to do an art show. I want a studio; that’s the dream

Q5.5: Do you have any extra-curriculars running right now with your sculpting?
A5.5: Yeah, the Empty Bowl Club. We make bowls together, not just Carrboro students, but lots of people from the art center and other things. Basically, with those bowls, we prepare meals and have a sort of community dinner. People pay $30 for the meal and the artwork. All proceeds go to CORA Food Pantry to help feed hungry kids in the area. A lot of people don’t know, but there are kids in the area who are [hungry]. And it doesn’t have to be homeless starving either, just look at the kids who eat reduced or free lunch.

Q6: Anything else you’d like to add?
A6: Ceramics is an awesome class. Ms. Schiavone has helped me grow as a creator, shoutout Ms. Schiavone.

Streaming Exclusives: Music

Students at Carrboro have been feeling the isolating effects of music streaming albums lately.

Whereas music used to be available to any dedicated fan willing to spend a few dollars, it now exists in a market in which artists sign off on deals in which only one streaming service can release their music.

The most recent example of this new trend in the music industry is the case of Frank Ocean’s Sophomore full-length album Blond.  An Apple Music Exclusive, Carrboro students who aren’t subscribed are up in arms about the exclusion.

“When Frank Ocean’s album first came out, I was giddy as a kid!” said Declan Sistachs, senior.  “I was thinking to myself ‘here comes Frankie with that soul sound I just need!’  And when I discovered that his album was unavailable to someone who didn’t subscribe to a streamer, just like Kanye’s album, I just felt left out.”  When asked if he would pay the 10 dollars a month, Sistachs said “of course not, that’s ridiculous.  I’m not paying 120 dollars a year just to hear an album.”

Carrboro students are set to become increasingly upset heading into 2017, as more artists are pledging their allegiance to different streaming services.  Whether it be with Kanye West’s Tidal, or Apple Music, or even Spotify, more artists are signing these deals.

When asked if she would consider paying the monthly fees of a streaming service if her favorite artist released an exclusive album, senior Katie Fesperman said “I don’t think so.  I subscribe to spotify, but if my favorite artist became exclusive to Tidal or Apple Music, I don’t think I would pay the money just to hear the artist.  I won’t pay for an artist who’s in it just for the money.”

Whether it means they are in it only for the money or not, it’s undeniable that more artists are signing off on these deals.  As the industry moves even further away from hard cover album sales to online streams, it only makes sense that the artists will set themselves up for a future in which maximum profit is guaranteed.
