Memorial Day in L.A.

Posted on May 29, 2018 by in Announcements


Reported by Tais Borges

Another Memorial Day weekend has arrived. This means the beginning of summer, hot weather, spending time with family, and dedicating this specific day to those brave soldiers who died in military service. The first celebration in 1868 was known as Decoration Day, because the graves of the lost soldiers would be decorated with flowers. As of 1967, the date has become known as Memorial Day. The importance remains of this date’s celebration, especially in such a large city. Los Angeles’ citizens can find several events to attend, including parades and ceremonies on this Monday.

In Hollywood, a retired U.S. Army Captain will speak at an event at Forest Lawn in Hollywood Hills starting at 10 a.m.

Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum was built in 1923 to honor the 23,000 soldiers who served in World War I. They will hold a ceremony as they do almost every year, at noon. This will consist of patriotic music, an honor guard presentation, and the lighting of the stadium torch.

In Inglewood, the population will gather for speeches, a colors presentation, and a flag ceremony. It will be held at Memorial Obelisk Monument starting at 11 a.m.

Long Beach has the name of roughly 7,000 members of armed services who have died since Sept. 11, 2001 inscribed on Honoring Our Fallen Memorial Wall at Rosie the Riveter Park. Starting at 5:45 a.m., people will gather to read the names of those brave lives that have been sacrificed.

Hollywood High is once again holding their Spring pep rally tomorrow March 22, and holding their annual Hollywood Idol, thanks to creator James B. Carmicle, on March 23, which is also the last day of classes before we are off for Spring Break.  Now for the pep rally, students have to wear the proper color for roll call, Seniors wear red, Juniors wear white, Sophmores wear black and lastly Freshmen wear grey. Because of this event students will only be going to period one through four, each class being 70 minutes long, then their fourth period teacher will escort them to the pep rally.

Now for Hollywood Idol, students will be seeing a handful of acts ranging from singers to dancers. There will also be a fashion show exhibiting prom dress and tuxes ideas since prom is just around the corner. Again because of this event,and the fact that students will be dismissed to go home at 12:39 p.m. students will only have periods five and six, each class running for about 80 minutes. These next two days before Spring break are surely ending on a very entertaining note.

King Tut Comes Back to Life

Crimson Reporter

Coming to the California Science Center March 24th King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibit is bringing the ancient pharaoh back from the dead. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb this exhibit is the most extensive exhibit yet.

Featuring over 150 authentic artifacts from the King’s tomb this is the last time this exhibit will be in LA. After it hits LA the exhibit will go to ten different cities before leaving to Europe and finally staying in its permanent place at the The Grand Egyptian Museum, located near the Pyramids of Giza.

Many of the artifacts the exhibit brings have never been seen before outside of Egypt and are now going to be on display. These artifacts may have been actually been used by King Tut himself such as rings found on the King’s fingers, golden jewelry, many sculptures he had, and the gold sandals he wore before being buried. Not only that but all of the artifacts in the exhibit are over 3,300 years old and give an inside look at how the King lived.

The exhibit will be here until January 6th and open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., tickets will be available soon and are available for pre-order online at the California Science Center website.

The time has come for seniors to get up in front of judges and important community people to present their semester long project. Seniors have put time and so much effort into this project, they have to write a 12+ page research paper, create a slide presentation, volunteer at least 20 hours, they also have to make sure that their presentation lasts a total of eight minutes.

Tomorrow, March 1 the seniors will have to stay after school, while all the other kids get to go home at 12:39. They have had plenty of time to prepare and now it is time to show their judges all that they have learned. Now if an underclassmen wanted to take part in seniors presentation, some students were asked to stay and time seniors presentation. If you don’t want to have that responsibility on your head but still want to stay and watch, you can ask a teacher if you can stay and observe.

Get your free pancakes at IHOP today

Jacob Hu

Chronicle Reporter

Today is national pancake day which means that IHOP is giving away a short stack of buttermilk pancakes to anyone who donates one dollar or more which will go to children’s charities. This offer will only last for today by 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. pacific time zone. For every stack of buttermilk pancakes IHOP serves, they get closer to reaching their goal of raising $5 million for local children’s hospitals and health organizations. IHOP started National Pancake Day on 2006 and their franchisees have raised almost $30 million for children’s hospitals, health and educational organizations.

This is a great way of fundraising for people in need of education and health because everyone gets satisfied by the end. For example, the customers from IHOP get a short stack of buttermilk pancakes for donating a dollar or more to children’s charities and the children in need of education and health get a better percent of recieving that help from those organizations.
