Delayed SAT Scores

By Lindsay Bauer

The results of the March 5, 2016 SAT scores will not be released until May 10, 2016, due to the need to verify scores for the new test. The College Board has assured that they are notifying colleges and universities of this delay, but any senior who is waiting to receive their scores should call any college’s admissions office that are waiting to determine admission and/or scholarship eligibility. It is important to tell them that the delay is in no part due to a lack of responsibility on you or Salisbury High School.
For anyone waiting to review these March 5 scores before signing up for another SAT, the results will not be available until the registration deadline for the next testing window has already closed — the deadline is May 5, 2016, and the exam is June 4, 2016. Do not wait for these results if you would like to test again in May or June. Taking the ACT is also a safe option — the deadline for registration is May 6, 2016, and the test is June 11, 2016.

Album Review: Argentina

By Matthew Jordan

Straight out of Canada, this rising star artist had some ups and downs throughout his career, but he’s still young. Daystar Peterson, also known as Tory Lanez, is a rapper, singer, producer and fashion designer. He is often compared to Drake or The Weeknd, but it doesn’t take much listening to realize there’s something different about him. Tory Lanez brings you the euphoria that is Canadian rap and hip-hop with his own personal touch of “swavey,” something that sets him apart from all the other artists in the industry.

On his new mixtape titled Argentina, Tory Lanez also goes by the name Argentina Fargo. He chose the name Argentina because he wanted listeners to think of something cultural, ethnic, and different, since he comes from a different country and works across the border. With that, let’s jump right into the mixtape review. The mixtape opens up with a song named “Talk On Road.” He debuted this song back in 2014 but wanted the song to gain more recognition. Throughout the song, he explains that almost all of his life, he has wasted his time with individuals who were just using him for money, and he finally said enough is enough. He states “ OH, NO, NO, NO, no / Sweating myself for these lame a** b****** / OH, NO, NO, NO, no / Fargo riding around in a drop-top / I’m like I’m not, I’m not, I’m not, I’m not.”

Following “Talk On Road” is a personal favorite of mine. “Real Addresses” is a song that describes his troubled past with illegal narcotics, fake friends, family issues and his run-ins with the law. The beat of the song really gets you into a hyper state of mind due to it having heavy bass. He describes that he cannot trust anybody but himself due to prior experiences of his so called “friends” telling on him out of jealousy and spite. He explains that he went down this drug-riddled road because his grandmother kicked him out of the house. After that, he decided to start off on his own down the wrong path. In the song, he states, “When my grandma kicked me out the house … / Started hustling and got that six.” Following “Real Addresses” is another personal favorite of mine, a song named “Dimelo,” the main reason being the beat of the song. It creates a generally hyper vibe that will get you out of your seat.

From the start when I heard this man sing, rap and, produce music, I knew he was going to be special. From getting recognized through his feature in Meek Mill’s album last year, to finally gaining more and more recognition, he will be the next big thing. His beats, lyrics, and overall attitude will help him get to the top. Overall, I will give this album a 5 out of 5 on the Mat Jordan fire fuego chart. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Music in Our Schools Month

By Lindsay Bauer

Throughout the month of March, Salisbury High School has been celebrating Music in Our Schools Month, which is a time of year when music education becomes the focus of schools across the nation. Music in Our Schools Month hopes to raise awareness of music education and to remind citizens that school is a place where children everywhere should have access to music. These festivities are an opportunity for teachers to bring music programs into the spotlight of the community. By allowing schools to display the benefits the school music brings, musical students of all ages are recognized.

Here at Salisbury High School, we have given special notice to numerous students demonstrating their musical talents. Senior Carolyn Boulay participated in the PMEA’s (Pennsylvania Music Educators Association) Regional Chorus Festival, in which she took part in a concert at Central York High School. Senior Adam Smith, junior Reilly Yankovich, junior Eric Pennella, junior Sabrina Sizer, and sophomore Josh Kim were performers in our county band. Salisbury High also had a strong number of gifted representatives in county chorus as well — Scheccid Alayola, Haley Bergstrom, Laura Daher, Nicole Fackler, Keri Haldenman, Naomi Kuhns, Nicole Sylvester, Zoe Feller, Abigail Garrigan, Jessette Long, Sophie Ravenelle, Aine Shay, Bryant Alayola, Eric Pennella, David Eckhardt, Dane Galbraith, Joey Robert, and Adam Smith. In addition to all of the happenings in the high school, Music in Our Schools Month has also been celebrated in the middle school. They have been holding events, such as decade theme days, where music is played at lunch and students are encouraged to dress up.

Horoscope Weekly Mar. 21 – 27

By Samantha Perkins

Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) – It would not be in your best interest to suppress your emotions at the beginning of this week. Everyone is better served clearing the emotional air. As the week wears on, your levels of bravery and boldness will reach an all-time high. Don’t worry though, this newfound courage won’t get you into any trouble. This weekend, you’ll be weighed down by routine and responsibilities. Even if it’s not much fun, it’s probably for the best if you keep your head down and do what needs to be done.

Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) – You’re so communicative at the beginning of this week that you can find conversation anywhere. As the week continues however, interacting won’t be so easy. You’ll have to be careful, otherwise your interactions may lead to a power struggle. Over the weekend, you may find that relationships in your life, whether they be romantic, familial, or platonic, will be strengthened. Enjoy the quality bonding time over your spring break!
