8 Broadcaster Press December 24, 2019 www.broadcasteronline.com December 2019 Vermillion High School’s Student Newspaper vermillion.k12.sd.us 5 Top 5 Albums of 2019 Otoboke Beaver - Itekoma Hits BY MYA DEJONG Vermillion High School’s Basketball: teams boys team only had Basketball have begun their 2019/20 season. The one graduating senior last year, so the team’s dynamic has stayed strong throughout the past two years. This season the boys have two seniors: Sam Ward and Max Mayer.The VHS Girls’ team, this season, has four seniors: Kenzie Mockler, Lexi Saunders, Cami Regnerus, and Morgan Kerkman. Sadly, Morgan will be out for her final season due to an ACL tear. Both the Boys’ and Girls’ first games were December 13th in Tyndall against Bon Homme. The Boys’ first home was December 16th against Bridgewater-Emery. The Girls’ first home was December 19th against Ponca. The VHS Athletic Department hopes to see the Vermillion community cheer on both the boys and girls at their first home games this season. The Vermillionaire wishes the basketball teams this year luck with their 2019 seasons! Last on the list is the first proper fulllength album from the all-female Japanese punk band. I only understand the few parts that are in English, but that doesn’t really matter when the band is playing with this much ferocious energy and writing such catchy songs. The album lacks in diversity, but the short tracks make it so it never gets boring. Vermillion High Gymnastics: Yet again,team this year only School’s Gymnastics is extremely young with a lot of talent. The B+ Best Song: “S'il vous plait” 4 senior gymnast this season is Haily Erisccson. Their season just began on December 3rd at Sioux Falls Lincoln. The girls first home meet, their annual Winter Wonderland, is December 21st. The Tanager athletes would love to see your support at their first home meet and we wish them luck with their season. Lana Del Rey - Norman F[...] Rockwell! I reviewed this album for the September issue for the Vermillionaire, and my thoughts remain the same. It is undoubtedly a gorgeous sounding record with great songs, but its lengthy run time combined with the overall lack of variety holds this one back a bit. The wrestling team this Wrestling:seniors Adriel time State year has four Blue, Kobe Culver, Brock Voss and two Champion, Lucus Anglin. The boys started their season on December 7th at Sioux Falls Roosevelt. Their first home meet will be January 16th so that gives the community plenty of time to get out in support for VHS’s Tanager wrestlers. Until then we wish the team success throughout their season. B+ Best Song: “Doin’ Time” 3 Glenn Branca - The Third Ascension Superior Team BY ZADYA ABBOTT Vermillion High Schooltothe sent two members of Oral Interpretation team the 110th Annual South Dakota State Oral Interpretation competition in Yankton, SD, on Saturday the 7th.

MERRY HAPPY www.vermillionfcu.com from the Board and Staff at 105 E. Cherry St., Vermillion, SD (605) 677-5214 1410 E. Cherry, Vermillion • 605-624-2673 • clayunionelectric.coop The Third Ascension will be the last original work released with the Glenn Branca name. He lost his battle with throat cancer in 2018, but the legacy he left in his music will live on forever (or at least as long as I’m alive). His over 40-year career started back in 1980 with Lesson No. 1, and his loud, erratic guitar symphonies have been an influence on many great bands, including my favorite, Sonic Youth. Glenn Branca’s last album continued what he did best - relentless chaos, even if there are a few dull moments of it. A- Best Song: “The Smoke (Guitar Concerto for Arad Evans)” 2 Tyler, the Creator - IGOR Tyler channelled his energy into a new sound this year, releasing a heart wrenching breakup album that shows off strong songwriting skills as well as his talents as a producer. On IGOR, he raps a surprisingly low amount for a rapper, but it is something that enhances the album, not reduces it. A- Best Song: “IGOR’S THEME” 1 Black Midi - Schlagenheim The debut album from the young London band almost seems like it was tailor made to fit my liking. Noisy instrumentals, odd vocals, and cryptic lyrics combine to make a release that never fails to make me grin with glee, despite it not being a happy album in the slightest. A+ Best Song: “953” 5 W. CHERRY ST. VERMILLION 624-4444 in the Once upon a timethere was land of society a popular-culture icon known for delivery toys on the eve of December 25th to wellbehaved girls and boys. According to History.com, in Scandinavia legend has it an elf, named Jultomten, delivers presents in a goatdrawn sleigh. In Germany and Switzerland the benevolent character goes by ‘Kris Kringle.’ In France, ‘Pere Noel’ fills the shoes of children with gifts. Then in Russia a woman named, Babouschka, is said to leave children gifts in the hope that one of them is the baby Jesus and she will be forgiven for pointing the wisemen in the wrong direction. Different places have different stories but where does the jolly, stoutlybuilt image of Santa Claus come from? The magical man in red was suggested first by Clement Clarke Moore, author of the famous poem ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas’ in 1822. It was later illustrated in 1881 by political cartoonist Thomas Nast. Swiss and Germans: Kris Kringle bringing presents to good boys and girls. I hope this Pause For Diversity ignites a pause to think about how even Santa Claus means different things to people from different walks of life. The next issue of Pause For Diversity will be out January 2020. In the meantime, this columnist wishes you happy holidays and an especially joyous Kwanzaa.
