8 Broadcaster Press December 4, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com NOVEMBER 2018 O VERMILLION.K12.SD.US VERMILLION HIGH SCHOOL’S STUDENT NEWSPAPER GUESS WHOÕS BACK... BY MYA DEJONG & LILLY MOCKLER n October 18th, our fellow classmate Dylan Kirkpatrick, came back to school. The students were not only excited to see him again but glad he was doing okay. When Dylan received the news about going back to school he was happy because he was bored sitting at home all day. He missed, Òpretty much everything from everyday life when I was in the hospital.Ó He was not nervous about going back to school because he didnÕt set any expectations. When we asked Dylan how school was going he replied, Òpretty gucci.Ó For Dylan, school has BY TYLER MANN R not been different since before the accident. He enjoys high school and he even said school has been easier. Since Dylan has come back the students have been curious of what it’s like to experience something like what he went through. Dylan was in a coma for 26 days and people wondered what that felt like. Dylan said, Òit feels just like sleeping, and when you wake up itÕs like waking up in the morning.Ó While he was in the coma, he could not hear anything and it felt like only a couple hours had passed, but in reality, it had been nearly a month. When Dylan was told how long he was in a coma, he was shocked and it was hard to believe. The community and the school did what they could to support Dylan through everything and he is thankful and thinks itÕs Òpretty cool.Ó Dylan gave advice to everyone and says to be careful when driving. Dylan enjoys being back at school and everyone is grateful that he is back. Dylan is happy to be back in the halls of VHS. Staff submitted photo. THE WALL IS STILL STANDING eleased on this day in 1979, Pink FloydÕs The Wall stands out among the crowd in a particularly fantastic year for music. In retrospect, The Wall can be seen as one of the last commercially and critically successfully progressive rock albums. The genreÕs lengthy and complicated compositions gave way to punk rock and new wave movements. Although the funky bass line of ÒAnother Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2Ó and the legendary ÒComfortably NumbÓ can be enjoyed on their own, they both work better in the narrative running throughout the albumÕs 80 minute runtime. The album is a story telling of songwriter and bassist Roger WatersÕ disillusionment with society and his life manifested in a character called Pink. He is introduced in the opening song ÒIn The Flesh?Ó, which features all the bombast and drama to be expected on the other 25 tracks. Of course, it would be ridiculous to cover each of them here, so only the highlights will be covered. ÒThe Thin IceÓ sets the tone for the whole album through its lyrics about the necessity of emotional support in the modern world. The classic single ÒAnother Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2Ó can get anyone singing with its rebellious lyrics and childrenÕs choir chants, as Students of the Month lcitioen mrial v Ver well as a memorable outro (ÒIf you donÕt eat your meat, you canÕt have any pudding!Ó). Immediately following, the acoustic ÒMotherÓ features lyrics of an overbearing maternal figure, and “Young Lust” parodies many hard rock songs, with its arenasized sound and hormone crazed lyrics. Perhaps my favorite on disc one, “One of My Turns,” explodes in anger so perfectly. It can be quite startling on the first listen. The second disc opens with one of the crown jewels of the bandÕs illustrious career, ÒHey You.Ó The crushingly real lyrics about loneliness sit atop the gentle and somber instrumental, before a grand guitar solo highlights the best of David GilmourÕs vast musical talent. The short, nonetheless, fine duo of “Vera” and “Bring the Boys Back Home” feature war lyrics which would fit comfortably on Pink Floyd’s next record, The Final Cut. Perhaps, the most well known song from the album, ÒComfortably NumbÓ, has the perfect sense of melancholy, best represented by both of its stunning, melodic guitar solos; the second of which is commonly ranked among the best of all time. The reprise ÒIn The FleshÓ is just as good as the first, and “The Trial” wraps up the main nar- WORDSEARCH BY LAUREN HANSEN PLAIN TALK S e r v i n g o u r read e r s s i nce 1 8 8 4 . www.plaintalk.net Congratulations Justin Sorensen Winner for the week of November 25th Justin has excelled in the classroom and community and we are proud to announce his acheivements.

ÒOutside the WallÓ, then, ends on a rather depressing note, as the track loops back into the beginning of the album, implying Pink isnÕt the only one, and everyone will always continue building their own walls.

A shroudÉ Which warms and protects All it encompasses. Liberty, A torch held high Which lights our path, And attracts all, Who wish, To walk with us. Justice, A set of scales That weigh the truth, And a sword To defend those, Who canÕt defend themselves. Unity, A bundle of arrows. For to break one arrow Is easy, But to break Fifty, Is impossible. America, A nation built On the values of Freedom, Liberty, Justice, Unity. A nation that is Symbolized in as many ways As people. A nation where Freedom, Unites all in it, With liberty, And Justice, For ALL. 105 E.

The colors kiss my eyes with a gentle touch, As I stepped forward I heard a crunch. It was a dead tan leaf under my shoes, IÕm so sad, I wanna take a snooze.
