Class of 2018 Club

By Audrey Lechien

Some of the main clubs at West Hills are the class clubs. These clubs are specifically for organizing class activities, fundraisers etc. I know a couple of people in the class of 2018 club and I decided to ask one of them some questions. Senior Kendall Cady is vice-president of ASB and is also a part of the class of 2018 club. Kendall said during the meetings they do discussing and planning. Much of the time is spent on planning fundraisers and dances such as prom. Each class has an officer that holds all the meetings. For the class of 2018, Ms. Young is the officer. When prompted with the question “what is your favorite part of being in this club?”, Kendall said “I love being involved in the school. Also I wanted our class to have the best senior year possible and I liked being in control of so much”. I then asked her how long she had been in the club and she said “I have been a class of 2018 club member since freshman year”. To conclude the interview I asked Kendall what she would say to anyone considering joining their class’ club. She responded with “I would highly recommend it! I got to meet so many new people and high school is a lot more fun when you get involved”.

Conservative Club

By Devin Craig

This week in Conservative Club some interesting topics were  discussed. The Dear Leader of Conservative Club, Scott Bettony, lead a heated discussion on how to thwart Zionist influences in our society. This led to some minor discussion in which all of the members agreed. This conversation progressed into why Angela Merkel is the least attractive diplomat in Europe. They closed the meeting talking about how to stop the liberals from taking over California.

 

 

My Boy App Review

by Cameron Brooks

This week I will be reviewing one of the most interesting apps available on the Google Play Store. This app is a Gameboy advance emulator that can play both Gameboy advance, Gameboy color, and original Gameboy games. The app is called My Boy and when you download it and open it for the first time, you will see nothing on the screen except an empty folder labeled downloads. Before you get to playing your favorite Gameboy games you have to download some roms off of a website such as emuparadise. For example, to download Pokemon Leaf green, you can simply search on Google ¨Pokemon Leaf Green rom¨ and click download on the link. Once the game is downloaded you can return to the app and it will show up under the downloaded section and you can then proceed to play the game. You can simply repeat this process for any Gameboy game you wish to play. The controls appear on screen with the right side of the screen housing the a and b buttons and the left housing the d pad. The controls are fairly precise and are easy to control once you get used to them. The only game that might have some issues would be the shooters like Mega Man and Contra, which require extremely precise control. If you do not enjoy the stock controls you can connect a third party wireless controller to your phone using bluetooth. I find that this gives you much more control over the game. Overall this app is fantastic, especially because it lets you play all of these games on your phone that take up next to no storage and its free without any ads.

Black Panther Movie Review

by Devin Craig

Over the weekend I saw Black Panther the movie. The movie was wonderful. First, the cinematography in the movie was excellent. They always had the right camera angles for the scene. Secondly, the cast of characters was awesome. Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger was perfect for this movie and he played the role as it should’ve been. The plot was great. It followed the new King, T’challa, also known as the Black Panther, throughout his journey of self discovery. T’challa has to figure out how to be a good King while also making sure his kingdom is safe because of his role as the Black Panther. Overall I would give this movie a 4.5 out of 5 stars. See it and you won’t be disappointed.
