GC speaks out on FCC proposal to reverse net neutrality

by Megan Schoonover/Staff Writer

    How often do you use the internet? In today’s day and age you most likely do very often. Net neutrality allows us to have freedom on the internet and do the things we do every day. Net neutrality, according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, is defined as,”The idea, principle, or requirement that Internet service providers should or must treat all Internet data as the same regardless of its kind, source, or destination.”

    The net neutrality we know has been around since 2015. It allows us to go to whatever site we want (and not have to pay a fine to go on it) and every site uses the same internet speed. So what happens when we don’t have these freedoms?

    On this upcoming Dec. 14 the FCC will vote on the plan (created by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai) that is trying reverse net neutrality. If they do, our internet will be very limited. Companies will control our internet so it will no longer be an open place. Certain sites will be blocked, get no traffic because companies will decrease their bandwidth, or have to pay a toll to just have a normal running site. Besides the site owners having to pay we will also have to pay to just use our everyday site. These companies will also have control over our internet speeds.

    Greg Thompson, technology operations director at GC, explained, “I liken the current (FCC) proposal to the following: Imagine if you bought a new Samsung Refrigerator for your kitchen replacing your old Kenmore fridge. Your Power Company has a special contract in place with Kenmore to provide 100% of the power needed by that Kenmore Fridge, but Samsung has decided not to pay your Power Company extra money to guarantee that its fridges also get 100% of the power they need. So your power company only sends 50% of the power needed by your new Fridge unless you agree to pay them extra to get the 100% needed. Sounds far fetched? That’s because: 1. The power company can’t actually do this legally since they are classified as a Title II Common Carrier.2. The technology to limit Power Delivery doesn’t exist (I believe it would if they could).”

    Thompson said, “In the end getting worse service for more $$ is never a good thing, and could have a negative effect on the people of Greenfield, and unfortunately I think the FCC will pass this new proposal.”

Savannah Watts, 12, commented, “I think that we should have the ability to surf the internet freely, without any one person or company telling consumers what to look at or what to search.”

     When asked how he felt about the proposal, Mr. Dan Naegeli responded, “ I feel that the internet has become a necessity in the daily life in the average American citizen.  I feel that it should be regulated like a utility.”

    Mr. Jonathan Hudson, Radio/TV department, commented on the plan, “Imagine if you are AT&T or Comcast, and providing internet to a household. It would be in your best interest to slow down content streaming websites like Netflix, Hulu, and others as to push your own streaming services and slowly take revenue away from the aforementioned companies. This is the problem without Net Neutrality, the ISP’s will always look out for themselves and their parent companies, and other third party companies with no major affiliation with always be confined to limited traffic on less bandwidth.”

    Elaine Hilton, 11, tech cadet who is also in AP Computer Science, responded to the possibility of reversal of net neutrality. “I am very concerned about the proposal because it will change life as we know it today. Our access to the internet will be limited by companies that are trying to make money. We will have to pay for access to our favorite sites just like we pay for tv channels now. I am definitely against the proposal the FCC is trying to pass because it will turn the internet into an industry rather than a resource for everyone.”

   Hilton also brought up another good point. “This will definitely impact the people of Greenfield-Central because it will become too expensive to purchase internet access for 1,500+ students. This will also limit what resources students will be able to access, which will limit educational opportunities.”

    When asked about how reversing net neutrality will affect the students, Aarika Foster, 10, said, “I think the students would be enraged. Most of the students are aware or at least have heard of it. Since we are all becoming young adults it affects us a lot. We have to know about these things but I do think they will pass this proposal.”

    Eric Mitchell, 11, said, “If this proposal is passed the good side of it is that people will be forced to go outside more often because they won’t be able to use their internet as much.”

    If this plan goes through we may have a very big change ahead of us. This change would apply to anyone who uses the internet.

    Ethan Baker, 11, said, “I think they will pass the proposal. The (FCC chairman) who proposed it, Ajit Pai, seems to be pretty set on this. He has also made statements that no matter how much we protest it is likely that it is still going through.”     

    Baker also said, “I think that if this goes through we will see less MacBook use because the internet will be a lot more expensive. I’m sure it’ll affect the youth in general too because we use the internet for just about everything.”

    Noah Engle, 11, said in response to the FCC’s proposal, “I don’t like the FCC’s proposal whatsoever. I am very against getting rid of net neutrality, mainly because I really don’t want to pay even more money for internet and it’s just ridiculous in general. Without net neutrality, companies would be able to control what we can see on the internet. More than likely censoring some people from voicing their opinions or posting news articles that are pro-net neutrality and infringing on their rights of free speech.”

   Hilton said, “I think it is likely that they will pass the proposal because members of Congress often hold large stocks in internet companies, so they stand to make a lot of money if this is passed. For this reason, they will work much harder to get it passed in order to receive their own financial gains.”

   However Hudson believed, “I strongly believe taking down Net Neutrality is an attempt to for the FCC to try to regulate the internet,  in which they previously have been unsuccessful. I ultimately believe that Net Neutrality will stand despite the greed and conflict of interests that lie within major ISP’s.”

   It seems to be a coin toss, but actions are being taken.

   New York Times writer Cecilia Kang, in “Net Neutrality Hits a Nerve, Eliciting Intense Reactions” wrote, “Public interest groups like Free Press and organizations like Mozilla, the nonprofit behind the popular Firefox browser, said they were prepared to file suit against the plan as soon as the vote on Dec. 14.” and “… start-ups such as Airbnb, Twitter and Reddit, which joined dozens of smaller start-ups on Monday warned that the rules would hurt innovation and the economy.”

    Engle said, “The FCC will more than likely pass the proposal, but Congress recently has set out a bill to stop the FCC from taking away our internet,  (House of Representatives Bill 4585.)”

    The bill is being sponsored by Sean Patrick Maloney, Democrat from New York. The bill may not be able to have an impact because of such a quick turnaround time, but it is promoting more discussion of the topic of net neutrality.

Band ends season at Semi-State

by Analicia Cass/Staff Writer

Marching band finishes their season at Semi-State with their heads held high, having lost by just 0.2 points.

On Saturday, Oct. 28, GC’s very own took the field in competition. They performed as they would any competition with the added pressure of advancing to state or not. Although all of them were excited to be there, they had to remain a certain professionalism to represent Greenfield Central well. “We were super excited, yet we were very composed. We had our eyes on the prize,” said Liahona Lukens, 12, Color Guard.

After hours of practicing earlier that morning, they had worked out the mess-ups and mishaps. They worked through the show many times to fully prepare themselves. By the time they got to the competition they were prepared and ready to compete. Lukens claimed, “That was the best showing of the Cougar Pride that has ever been.”

The anticipation and excitement of awaiting scores is high. It all comes down to 6 judges. Lukens said, “If they don’t like you idea or the execution, you will not advance.”

When judges announce state advancers, they go in order of performance order. When they passed of GC Cougar Pride, there was a lot of confusion and many emotions. “I was honestly more confused and a little angry,” said Jackson Sipes, 11, brass. 

Jonathan Barber, 12, said the results were surprising.

“I think the hard part for us as a group was to think how to win a regional and get 11th at semi-state so it’s just kind of like we were in a lot of shock.“

Garrett Bice, 12, said the band’s performance was good but wondered if it was good enough. “It was high caliber but I wouldn’t say it was the best we could have given. There was definitely a little more that could have been given.”

Barber said, “There was never a time where I felt like that a person wasn’t trying their best. You kind of got to trust the guy next to you.”

The band had a strong season with many first places. They practiced hard for hours through the hot summer and the cold autumn. It all came down to six judges at every competition and for these judges the show was ultimately not able to be performed at state.

 

GC wishes Goshen well in move

Interviews by: Shelby Wallace

GC is sad to see Mrs. Janelle Goshen, art teacher, move on due to her husband’s new job in Florida, but happy for her new opportunities. Goshen was here three years.

Goshen said she will miss GC. “I liked how passionate and caring the staff was, how excited the students were to learn and grow,” she said.

Mrs. Lisa Sears, Goshen’s colleague in the art department, also enjoyed working with Goshen. “She is a ray of sunshine,” Sears said. “She is a great listener and always up for shenanigans.”

Jeff Weiland, art department, agreed. “I could always count on her to brighten up the day. Her bubbly disposition was always good for a laugh or two.”

Sears said Goshen is passionate about her art. “It shows in her teaching. She is constantly trying new things, learning from her failures and building on her successes.”

Weiland said one of Goshen’s best qualities is her strong motivation to explore and implement new ideas in the classroom. “She had very little fear of the unfamiliar,” Weiland said.

With such a close department, three years was plenty of time for memorable moments.

Sears said they were roommates in Italy on a trip with students in 2016. “One morning (Goshen) was having trouble waking up, so I stole her blankets and she stuck her arms down her sweatpants.”

Weiland mentioned that PLC meetings were interesting. “They were always multitasking for her–eating her breakfast, working on curriculum, all while doing her make-up,” he said.

Goshen said one of her students, Katrina Hembree, 11, had a particular memorable moment for her. “(Hembree) told me her favorite thing in the school year was hearing me sing from class all the way into the hallway, so I’ll never forget that one,” Goshen said.

Former Ag teacher Joe McCain even featured in one of Goshen’s memories of GC. “ I came in my room and there was a seven-foot stuffed dragon on my floor,” she said. “I think he got it from Madrigal.”

Goshen’s former colleagues wish her well.

“Yoshi-Goshi is an amazing person,” Sears said. “She is enthusiastic, kind, and hardworking. Any school will be lucky to have her.”

“She came to Greenfield-Central as a new teacher and has moved on with a great deal of experience and confidence in the visual arts and teaching skills she possesses,” Weiland said.

The girls’ basketball team is five games into their new season and feeling positive about how things are progressing.

Jessica Farrell, 12, sees the season going well. “We got a new coach this year, but we are all adjusting well to his coaching style,” she said.

Hannah Farrell, 10, said she was also happy with the way practice is going. “I feel like we are getting better and we have a lot of fun while doing it. I think we are going to surprise people.”

Jessica said she likes how positive the new coach, Joshua Means, is.  Hannah said Coach Means brings energy to the court.

Hannah said some goals the team has are to slow down the pace of the game and to have minimum turnovers. Jessica said another team goal is winning their conference. “As a team we are definitely getting better and we are creating a great team dynamic,” Jessica said.

One of Jessica’s goals is to get better after an injury last season. She said,  “My goal for this year is to remain healthy all season, to get better each day and always give (my) personal best effort.  I am looking forward to being out on the floor and playing this year after being forced to sit out all last season from an injury.”

For team-building outside of practice, they plan to have dinner before every conference games, and decorate their lockers. “Inside of practice we try to really be positive and give high-fives. We always break on center court after practice and end with giving everyone high-fives,” Jessica said.

Both Jessica and Hannah think HSE will be among the hardest competitors. Hannah said, “They are very skilled overall and have a great program.”

Jared Manning, athletic director, said that Coach Means brings both playing and coaching experiences to the team. Manning looks forward to seeing the positive growth of the team and the entire program under Means’ leadership.

 

Swim team prepares for another high-achieving season

The GC girls swim team, sectional winners four times in a row now, is preparing for their new season. Their first meet is Nov. 18 at 10:00 am, the Turkey Breast Invitational. 

Alexis Zell, 12, a veteran of the swim team, and Anna Seal, 9, who is new to the girls swim team, are among the many people participating on the girls swim team.   

When you’re on a team such as swim, having goals for yourself and the team is very important, especially when the team is also a two-time Hoosier Heritage Conference winner. 

“My individual goals for this season are to break 1 minute in the 100 free and 26 seconds in the 50 free. As a team we hope to win a 3rd conference title and 5th sectional title, as well as send multiple individuals to state,” Zell said.

“My individual goal would be to get a proper stroke to get faster times. As for my team goals would be it would be to get to state,” Seal said.

While having goals is always good, it can be tough to achieve those goals.

“To attain these goals my teammates and I will continue to practice both in and out of the pool. We will work to build our endurance and technique in order to be our best in competition.” Zell said.

“Both the men and women’s swim teams recently made goal boards with each one of each team member’s’ goals written on them. When goals are put in writing it easier to hold yourself and your teammates accountable.” Zell said.

According to Zell , the girls swim team’s biggest competition is Pendleton; they played very well last year.  

Being mentally prepared for the upcoming season is very important as well.

“I think the biggest thing I’ve done to mentally prepare for this season is to consider my goals and focus on having fun while still working hard to achieve those goals,” Zell said.

Staying focused on your goals can be challenging.  “My team stays focused on our goals by helping and encouraging each other before and during every practice and reminding each other that we are always there for one another,” Seal said.

 

 

Season 8 TWD premiere, “What’s all the hype about?”

by Megan Schoonover/Staff Writer

 

Review, Cast Thoughts, and Character Development

AMC’s The Walking Dead premiered with its first episode of season 8 on Oct. 22. This episode marked their 100th episode and there has been tons of hype. There have been many interviews with members of TWD’s cast, including NYC 2017’s Comic Con.

   Austin Amelio (who plays Dwight) in an interview at Comic Con disclosed, “I think this is the most action packed season we have had. It’s going to be an insanely good season. The show is relentless, man.”

   Last season we saw Rick being crushed under Negan’s power. Rick went from being a powerful leader to being under Negan’s thumb. Now this new season is all about Rick rising up and fighting Negan.

   In question to this new season The Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick asked, “Is Rick back now?”

   Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) replied, “I’m going to unpackage pain. In fresh and unimaginable ways on the doorstep of Negan.”

   We saw in last season that Carol withdrew from everyone, until she was told what was going on.

   Hardwick inquired, “Is Carol ready to fight now. She seems pretty ready?”

   Melissa McBride (who plays Carol) responds happily with, “She’s ready to fight…”

   So in this upcoming season we will get to see her character develop to be an even stronger fighter and perhaps the relationship between her and Daryl ( played by Norman Reedus) will flourish.

   “He’s the closest to her than I think any of them are,” McBride suspected in a recent episode of The Talking Dead.

With the death of Maggie’s (played by Lauren Cohan) husband Glenn (played by Steven Yeun) she was devastated. Leading up to this season she started to become vengeful and work her way into being a leader for Hilltop. In this season she has become the leader for Hilltop and we had one of the best scenes in this show. The scene was between her and Rick preparing for all out war. It had such a huge impact of emotion.

   However with that said, of how much she has grown as a character, has anyone noticed how something else isn’t growing? Judith (Rick’s daughter played by over 16 actresses) is getting older and growing but pregnant Maggie’s stomach isn’t? Yet they reference in the first episode that she is in her second trimester? We aren’t sure if this will somehow connect to the story or not, but nevertheless Maggie is ready for this war.

  In a review on rollingstone.com, “The Walking Dead Season 8: Everything You Need to Know,” writer Noel Murray commented, “Get ready for what could be a grueling ‘all out war’.” To review, the “all out war” is between Negan and Rick.

   The first episode of this new season has us excited for what Rick will do next and if he will overpower Negan. I will tease a bit; Rick has completely changed. He has turned all this pain and shame into wrath against Negan. If you watch just the first episode you will understand.

   It is very worth watching. Last season’s first episode was crazy and this season’s was not as off-the-wall but was so much better substance-wise. We get to see all these characters developing (ie. Rick, Carol, Maggie). I promised not to have any spoilers so you just have to see for yourself!

Students build career, college prep experience

by Mariam Elassal/Staff Writer

Photo Caption: Trystan Ailes, Jonathan Brown, and Evan McLaughlin, all 11, study for the SAT test coming up in December. 

Don’t Fear the Future Day took place on Oct. 24, when freshman went on a field trip; sophomore and juniors proceeded to take PSAT or Accuplacer in preparation for the standardized test that all high schoolers are required to take prior to graduation. Seniors also went on college visits in search of their potential future schools. Don’t fear the future day is intended to prepare sophomores and juniors for the SAT. By taking the PSAT, students get an idea of the SAT and how test day will look like.

Test day can be very stressful but taking the appropriate steps at the right time can be crucial to not only lessen test anxiety but to also help students plan for a bright future after high school. Mr. Tim Horsman, counseling department, recommended that students take advantage of the resources on collegeboard.com.  “For the PSAT in particular, every student that signs up for the test gets a full practice exam and student guide in order to help them prepare for what they will see on the test,” Horsman said. “It is also important to give oneself enough time to study for the test without being rushed or pressured,” Horsman said.

After the test has been taken and scores are received, students are given a booklet to compare the answers. This gives them the opportunity to see what they got wrong and how to improve. Mrs. Jill Slinker, English department, also recommended, “To prepare for the test, it is great to take practice exams, and work on timing. Khan Academy Online works with the College Board to provide excellent practice materials that are free to use.” She also stated that students should get a good night’s sleep, bring a watch, all registration materials, and to dress in layers as the weather in test buildings can be unpredictable.

Kori Dixon, 12, has taken the SAT twice. “I was fairly satisfied with my scores, especially since most colleges accept a super scored test.” A superscored test means colleges will take the best score a person received, regardless of the amount of times a person took the test.

Dixon said, “I’ve been accepted into Indiana Wesleyan University and plan to attend this college during fall of 2018.” Dixon stated that she found the most effective way to study is to take practice SAT tests.

Test anxiety is an issue that, unfortunately, can affect almost everyone at one point. Horsman advocated that students go into the test room confident and calm. Slinker stated, “The best way to combat test anxiety is to be prepared. Know the format of the test and questions, and have a strategy to attack the questions ahead of time.” She also suggested that after the test, test-takers not think about the test until the scores come in.  

Don’t Fear the Future Day was a busy day, but GC administrators and counselors plan this day to prepare students for their future whether it be testing, going on job shadows, college tours, field trips, etc. The idea behind the day is to build confidence in students as they take steps to advance after high school.

GC volleyball 4-1 at home this season

by Mariam Elassal/Staff Writer

This picture shows Makayla Price, 9, in action. Price was named HHC Co-player of the week after tallying 19 kills and 17 digs against Lafayette Central Catholic on September 9.

With their recent win over Decatur Central, the GC volleyball girls have had a great first half of their season. The Cougars beat Decatur with a score of 2-0. The Cougars stand at 11-8 on the season.

Alissa Knecht, 9, who plays setter on varsity,  is taking on her first season of high school volleyball and has many goals. “One of my main goals this season is to just grow as a player, and to learn and improve from my mistakes.”

Knecht, who has been playing volleyball since she was in fourth grade along with club volleyball, has her own strengths and weaknesses just like any other player. “A weakness of mine is that I am only a freshman and don’t have much high school volleyball experience and I am only 5’5, so not as tall as other players.”

All athletes have bad days. Grace Silcox, 10, plays outside attacker on the junior varsity team. “It’s hard when I have a bad day, I usually talk it out with my mom and focus on how I could’ve done better. I also focus on how I’m going to fix it the next game,” she stated.

A volleyball practice generally consists of an individual practice, called the toolbox, followed by the varsity and junior varsity teams splitting off into their individual courts. As a warm up, the teams will pass and hit. Once the players are warmed up, Coach Travis Fuller will have the team work on scenarios and rotations depending on what needs to be strengthened at the team.

The team practices 6 days a week, if one of those practices hasn’t been a game. By the end of the week, the team devotes about 18+ hours to volleyball, not including team bonding. At the moment, the Greenfield Central volleyball team has a season record of 11-8.

After games, Coach Fuller will talk to the team about what he thought of the game. “If team wins, our tradition for an away game is for the bus to take laps around the roundabout.”

In one of their most recent games, varsity player, Molly Broome, 11, recorded her 2,000th career assist. She was 168 short of the all time record.  Price, who plays outside attacker, recorded 13 kills. The Cougars will play Southport High School on Sept. 25.

Homecoming parade shows array of clubs at GC

by Hailey Hall/Staff Writer

Photo Caption: Blue Fusion members dance in the Homecoming Parade Sept. 15. 

The annual Homecoming parade makes its route through Greenfield the Friday before Homecoming. The parade is a fun experience for almost everyone in the family.=

Many after school activities participate in the parade, as well as Homecoming court members and other groups in the community.

Lily Richardson, 9, is a part of FCCLA, and helped with the assembling of the float and was in the parade.

“The theme we chose was Hawaiian,” Richardson said. “We chose a Hawaiian theme because we liked the central idea of family, vacations, and bringing people together.”

Even though it was a group discussion on how the theme would be chosen, some ideas can be left out. “I was pretty certain on the theme we were doing,” Richardson said. “Although we did talk about making it a little more elaborate.”

“We wanted to make more decorations for the float,” she said, “We also should have made sure the decorations we did have on the float were in better places, because the kept falling off.”

Sometimes parades can be stressful and hectic for the people designing, walking, and putting the float together. “I was a little anxious about being in front of so many people, but after a few minutes it was fine and I had a lot of fun,” Richardson said.

“Parades are a great way for schools and local businesses to interact with the community and they are  something fun for the families as well,” Richardson said.

Clio Inman, 9, who has been in past parades, said, “Being in the parade was probably my favorite part of being in junior blue fusion, I loved seeing the people sitting outside just to watch the parade.”

Float design can potentially be the hardest part of preparing for a parade. “I think the hardest part was trying to make something creative and original for the float,” Inman said. “Trying to make a unique float can get difficult when you participate in the parade every year.”

There are always ups and downs to parades. “It was really great when I got to see my friends and family standing there watching the parade,” Inman said. “It was hard not to go up to them and talk to them, but when you’re actually in the parade you have to keep walking. You don’t have time to sit and chat.”  

“Parades are a really good way to show teamwork, like putting together an idea and making it into something real is hard. It’s difficult but it turns out great in the end and it helps build teamwork,” Inman said.  

“It’s fun to be in parades because you can see the joy in the crowd, and in their smiles. It’s also so much fun to throw the candy and watch the kids catch it,” Alexis Inman, 11, said.

The Jungle Book opening soon at GC

By Halle Wynn and Collin Wood/Staff Writers

Lights, camera, action!  GC Troupe 2961 has been on their A-game this year.  Their children’s play “The Jungle Book” is coming up soon.

 Tanner Hord, 12,  says, “This show will be a delight for the kids.”

“The Jungle Book” features a young boy named Mowgli (Dominic Lanham, 9) who is raised by animals in the wild.  A frightening tiger named Shere Khan (Tanner Hord) is Mowgli’s arch enemy. Shere Khan attempts to make Mowgli and his peers’ life as dreadful as possible.  Baloo (Jules McGuire, 10) and Bagheera (Jackson Smith, 11) save Mowgli and sends him to the city to keep him away from Shere Khan.   

This year seems to be flowing along and the sound crew is trying new things. So far, many of the actors and actresses have their lines memorized. Alex Johnson, 12, said, “This play is doing really really well, other than supply, from a tech perspective, everything has been amazing, the set is fabulous, we are going to be more than ready for this show, at least on my end.”  

In addition, Dharma Tilley, 12,  talked about costuming and GC’s costuming resources. “We’re lucky enough to be allowed to borrow some costumes from the Indianapolis Children’s Museum’s Lilly Theatre,” Tilley said. “The rest of the costumes are coming from our loft or we are making them ourselves.”  

Being in theatre takes “devotion, patience, and a funny bone,” Hord said. Jarrod Harris, 12, joined theatre because he needed something to do after school. Harris has made many friends due to being involved in theatre.  

Tilley stated, “My mom is the choreographer for Hancock’s Children’s Theatre program which I was in from 4th to 8th grade. So, once I got to high school, I knew that I would want to continue with theatre”.  Some people inherited the talent of acting, whereas some joined simply because they wanted to. Johnson got involved in theatre because of his brother who has been in 27 shows throughout his theatre career.

For many reasons, GC can support and watch GC’s portrayal of “The Jungle Book”  coming up Sept. 29-30 at 7:00 pm and Oct. 1 at 2:00 pm.
