Hononegah Highlights

Imma be real, when the storm comes the wind will never blow the same way twice.

Furthermore, many students enjoy lis- tening to di ff erent genres of music, and at di ff erent times. Upon conducting the survey, results show the most popular genre of music among the students questioned is pop; however, a majority of the students had their own individ- ual genres they admired. One student expressed interest in Indie, yet another chose Broadway as their favorite. In addition, the students were asked to select when they listen to music. All of them indicated they listen to music during car rides, yet only one student shared they listen to music while sleep- ing. Interesting enough, seven students implied they listen to music while read- ing, and six listen while eating. These Hononegah students find all sorts of situations to listen to music! Out of all the questions, this is by far the most diverse in answers, and most intriguing. The students were asked "Does music carry any significant meaning to you? If so, how?" The re- sponses will surely touch your heart. Freshman Riley Green shares, "Music takes my mind o ff the stress of life, mu- sic definitely helps me with anxiety. Music just holds a special place in my heart." Another freshman, Katie Breit- en, expressed her appreciation for mu- sic sharing, "While there's times when it's fun to listen to music just because it sounds nice, more o t en than not I try to find a way to relate the music to me/ my life. It's definitely useful as an es- capism too." As if these responses weren't incredible enough, Senior Kait-

lyn Niedfeldt responded, "It helps me to identify with myself. It gives me an outlet to express myself and share with others what I am feeling." It seems the common theme here is that music is extremely powerful. While music for some people allows them to express their feelings, and the power comes from the song itself, Sophomore Natal- ie Zeiter shares, "My entire family sings and I have done numerous songs at fu- nerals, or weddings, etc. Whenever I do a song for something sentimental I never look at it the same again." Natal- ie displays how she herself can paint the picture through her performance, a remarkable way to acknowledge the power of song. All in all, Hononegah students have proven music has immense meaning. A t er hearing from them, it's safe to say that music does indeed mean di ff erent things to di ff erent people, but in the end one thing is for sure. Music dis- plays a powerful force resonated with students here at Hononegah ∎

then are executed when the townspeo- ple find out , only to come back cen- turies later to torment Max, Dani, and Allison. But there's much more to the story than meets the eye, even if you've watched it over a hundred times, you still might have missed some things. The original version of Hocus Pocus was quite di ff erent; in fact, the name of it was going to be Halloween House. It was much darker, and the main charac- ters were quite younger than the teenagers we recognize today. Hocus Pocus was based on a bedtime story David Kirschner came up with one night. It had nothing to do with the teenagers, and more to do with the cat. David and his daughter came up with the story of how their neighbor's cat was once a teen boy, who had been turned into a cat by three witches hun- dreds of years ago. The hanging of the sisters is a direct reference to the Salem Witch Trials, in which we see many women being hanged due to accusations of witch- cra t . The townspeople capture the sis- ters and a t er they scream one final curse, execute them. Although, the tim- ing is actually o ff with the date when they were hung. The sisters were hung on October 31, 1693, when in reality, the Salem witch trials ended in 1692. In the scene where Billy Butcherson arises from the dead, the moths that fly out of his mouth are rumored to be

Music to my Ears

By Sofia Korasick and Jaqueline Chen

The culture of music is such a beautiful and inspiring thing. Music means di ff er- ent things to di ff erent people, and it is also a remarkable way to bring people with similar interests together. For ex- ample, here at Hononegah, there are many programs and clubs that allow for our community to come together over music. A t er conducting a survey, many things can be concluded about the music-lov- ing population of Hononegah. For starters, there are plenty of students who indicated they participate or have participated in a band. One band stu- dent expressed their admiration for the activity stating, "I love doing band. I like the friendships formed and the beautiful pieces we play together. Some of my strongest friendships were formed in band."
