One Direction Splits Up

The popular boy band that has taken the world by a storm, One Direction, has decided to split up – the members going different directions with their futures; pun completely intended. According to Entertainment Weekly, the five boys decided to branch out with their careers, after Zayn Malik’s fiancé expressed her desire to raise a family in the near future. Although these lads have already sold tickets to the Where We Are tour, they are offering refunds to the thousands of heartbroken girls across the country. Inside sources say the rest of the boys felt frustrated and impatient with where the band was headed and decided to call it quits before they crashed and burned. In addition, Harry Styles of Worcestershire, has been becoming  increasingly exasperated with his unexpected fame, due to the fan’s criticism towards his past...

Madi Bode auditions for American Idol-Season 14!

CCHS’s very own talented singer-songwriter Madi Bode ’16 has auditioned for the new season of American Idol. The popular TV show has brought normal, everyday people into the spotlight, and created well known celebrities like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jordin Sparks. The judges are usually popular singers and role models who teach the contestants new skills in the music industry. Auditions in Boston took place this last weekend, and Madi Bode commented on her experience saying that, “It was a bit scary, which I was expecting, but the judges were very nice and not as intimidating as they look on TV.” She was especially excited to meet J.Lo who has been on American Idol for the past 3 years. “J.Lo is my idol and I get a lot of inspiration from her and...

Obama Issues Executive Order Restarting March Madness

This morning, President Obama issued an executive order forcing the NCAA tournament to restart. Obama, a huge basketball fan, revealed his bracket on SportCenter earlier this month. Even a cursory glance shows that, like most this month, his bracket is a mess. However, UConn’s cheeky apology to Obama for busting his bracket – reproduced below – was the straw that broke the metaphorical camel’s back. Our Commander in Chief, grim-faced and furious, faced down reporters questioning the constitutionality of his actions. Even so, the President could not be dissuaded. Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, released a statement in support of Obama. “Yes, very good,” Putin said. “It is good to see the President of the U.S. has an iron fist like me. Basketball is very important, it’s definitely a matter of national concern. It...

New Theme for All Night Live

After much deliberation and cooperation with members of the senior class, the parents committee has decided on changing the theme of All Night Live 2014. The new theme is Middle School Dance. All Night Live is an all night event for graduating seniors after graduation. The event will take place in the CCHS cafeteria on June 14th to 15th from 9:30 pm to 5 am.

Breaking: CCHS Building Cancelled

State investigators recently discovered that CCHS has not been using its state funding effectively. Rather, the state has found that CCHS has been discreetly diverting spending from the building project and using it for private purposes instead. At a recent state budget meeting state investigators detected numerous spending anomalies. Among such anomalies include the fact that CCHS neglected to pay for floors in the new buildings. A closer investigation yielded that the money was being siphoned off into the CCHS teachers coffee fund and that the money was now being used to buy Keurig K-Cups and expresso makers. In addition, state officials have now considered suspending CC’s funding for the building. Officials point out that the school’s prioritization of delicious caffeinated beverages shows that they might not be ready for additional funding, or at...

Say Goodbye to The Voice

Tears well up in my eyes as I write this, but as a journalist, it is my duty to inform our readers of everything.  Unfortunately, after this school year, our readers will be no more, as The Voice is disbanding.  There are a combination of factors leading to this tragic end to our beloved newspaper. First of all, our loyal teacher supervisor, Madame Lee Dubon, is taking a two year sabbatical on the Seven Seas Cruise with Kenny G.  We will miss her greatly, but we do hope that she will enjoy the smooth jazz and Alaskan panoramas. Unfortunately, editor in chief, Cynthia Chen’14, feels that this would be an outstanding time to close down the Voice, so that her legacy can be sealed.  With any mention of a 2014-2015 CCHS Voice, Chen hisses like...

Divergent Review

Divergent Review

By now, many CCHS students have seen Divergent, the latest teen dystopian movie based on the first novel in Veronica Roth’s trilogy. Many have compared Divergent to the popular Hunger Games books and movies.  Both stories take place in a futuristic, post-war America where the government has taken away many basic freedoms; and both feature strong female heroines. Both heroines also face difficult decisions in choosing their romantic interests at first. (In my opinion, Theo James from Divergent gave a much stronger performance in the supporting actor role  than those in The Hunger Games.) However, the similarities end there and the plots are actually quite different. In The Hunger Games, the government divides people into twelve districts based on geography. Every year, it forces two citizens from each district to compete in televised fight to...

CC Goes International

Confession time: I have the travel bug.  Like really badly.  As in, I spend hours camped out on Buzzfeed Travel rather than doing homework, admiring the beautiful rainforest in the Amazon, the elegant restaurants in Barcelona, and the stunning beaches of Australia.  Thankfully, CC offers no shortage of exchange trips, and only seems to be expanding the list of options.  The Foreign Language department offers a trip to Ecuador for Spanish students during February break, which is highly competitive to get into.  Chinese students got the opportunity to visit China last year, and the program may be returned to next year.  French students can participate in an exchange program with students from France, and there’s even an option for Latin students who can now travel to Italy to explore Ancient Roman culture.  And the...

CCHS New Building Update (with Photos!)

  As many of you have probably noticed when walking between the S and H buildings, Turner Construction is making great strides in the New Building.  The brick exterior is going up and the construction team has begun working on the exterior.  As a member of the building committee, I was fortunate enough to accompany fellow members on a tour last Wednesday evening.  I am excited to report that this building is truly state of the art, with sunny breakout spaces around the stairwells, an ensemble room, and a music lab.  The building will be acoustically sound so that there is a minimum  of noise pollution. The interior is currently being built in thirds, with one third close to being finished, another on its way, and the last currently being constructed with only some...

The Voice‘s March Madness 2014 Predictions

With the $1 billion bracket challenge this year for March Madness, 11 million brackets were submitted to ESPN with high hopes of becoming the first person ever to complete a perfect bracket. Of all the brackets submitted, only 3.3% of brackets remained valid after the first game of the second day, when No. 14 Mercer defeated No. 3 Duke, 78-71. By the end of Saturday, no perfect brackets remained, making this year one of the most unexpected years to date. After Rounds 2 and 3 of the tournament, the teams competing in the NCAA’s Sweet Sixteen® are set. Here are my predictions for the winners of the coming games, with their original ranking by region: In the West: No. 2 Wisconsin vs. No. 6 Baylor Winner: Wisconsin Wisconsin has shown their dominance by crushing...
